Birds Of Prey

We’ve been waiting and waiting, and we finally got some reviews of Birds of Prey, featuring Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad spun off into a totally new DC Comics movie. And, surprise surprise, the reviews are very positive.

Although some of the reviews were a bit mixed, most of the early tweets out of the first press screening call it an “absolute blast” with a great soundtrack, a memorable Margot Robbie performance, and some surprisingly intense violence. Several people compared it to the Deadpool movies, both in terms of the tone and the fact that it’s rated R (!) and breaks the fourth wall.

Birds of Prey opens in theaters on February 7. We’ll have our own film critic’s full review of the movie in the middle of next week...

‘National Treasure 3’

Buried in a Hollywood Reporter article about plans for a Bad Boys 4 (which, okay, fine) is a much more interesting bit of news. Chris Bremner, who is working on Bad Boys 4 and co-wrote the new Bad Boys For Life, is also writing a screenplay for National Treasure 3 — which is urgent and important and hugely exciting.

National Treasure is, of course, the two-film series of the 2000s starring Nicolas Cage as Benjamin Franklin Gates, a treasure hunter who gets mixed up in various adventures involved wild conspiracies and famous bits of American history. Part Indiana Jones, part Da Vinci Code, with more than a dash of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, both of the produced films — 2004’s National Treasure and 2007’s National Tr...

Between Keanu Reeves and Tom Cruise, the middle-aged action star has definitely been on the rise in the last few years. Heck even “over-the-hill” talents like Liam Neeson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone are still going strong in Hollywood. But, the most impressive has to be Tom Cruise. Come on, the man hung off the side of a plane and scaled the Burj Khalifa for Mission: Impossible. Even Will Smith took inspiration from the actor. In the words of the Bad Boys For Life star:

But, seriously: How does Tom Cruise do it? The actor is 57-years-old and always pulling off the most mind-blowing stunts! Of course, he’s had time to work up to it throughout the six Mission: Impossible movies and other stunt-heavy flicks, such as learni...

Ryan Reynolds Says He’s Working on Deadpool 3 For Marvel

Disney’s takeover of Fox’s entertainment assets mean that the original X-Men franchise is over. However, Ryan ReynoldsDeadpool will apparently survive the Disney purge.

However, Reynolds has now taken things a step further and confirmed the development of Deadpool 3.

Top Gun: Maverick

The new Top Gun: Maverick trailer dropped , Monday, December 16th. Tom Cruise announced the news on social media while also unveiling a new poster for the highly anticipated sequel. The first movie hit theaters in 1986 and launched Cruise’s career as an A-list celebrity after grossing over $356 million. Since then, the movie has only gotten bigger, with fans wondering for decades if they’d ever see Cruise back in the role as Maverick. By 2017, most fans had given up hope, so it came as a major shock when the actor confirmed that it was really happening.

The latest poster for Top Gun: Maverick features Tom Cruise’s main character leaning on what appears to be a World War II era plane, while looking up at the sky to see two modern fighter jets...

First things first: The speculation and random Ecto Cooler ads were correct. The next Ghostbusters movie is titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife. That’s been officially confirmed by a new article in Vanity Fair, which includes the first concrete plot details for the movie, along with a bunch of new images of the movie — including the one above of the Ghostbusters’ signature vehicle, the Ecto-1, tearing through a cornfield.

While a cornfield seems like a strange setting for a distinctly New York franchise, the new film apparently takes place in “a small town in Oklahoma,” on a farm that the main characters — Callie, played by Carrie Coon, and her two kids Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) and Trevor (Finn Wolfh...

Venom 2 Aims for R-Rating

We’ve got some juicy bits of info regarding Venom 2. First up, we have word that Stephen Graham, who most recently starred in Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic The Irishman, has been added to the growing cast. We also are hearing from one of the movie’s producers that, largely thanks to the success Joker has enjoyed over the past few months, an R-rating isn’t off the table for the sequel.

As for the casting, according to several reports, Stephen Graham has joined the cast in a currently undisclosed role. Graham’s previous credits include HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Snatch, Gangs of New York and, more recently, the Elton John biopic Rocketman.

Fan anticipation was already very high for The Mandalorian, the first-ever live-action Star Wars TV series, and one of the cornerstones of the new Disney streaming service, Disney+. But a tidbit about the marketing blitz that’s about to get underway to promote the site (get ready y’all) will only get people more intrigued.

An article on Disney+ in The New York Times claims there is something very “dramatic” and surprising in the first episode of the show. Here’s what it says:

The Mandalorian, which contains a dramatic Star Wars-universe spoiler in the first episode and will be available the moment Disney Plus starts, has been as heavily promoted as a traditional feature film, with billboards, 30-second television commercials, radio spots, and digital ads.

Even before folks saw what it was and the end result, there were plenty who had reservations about a remake of The Lion King. Today’s audiences claim they’re soured on re-imagining’s of Disney classics to begin with, and the original animated movie definitely strikes a chord with audiences. It wouldn’t be surprising if any director was less than thrilled to take on the challenge of re-adapting the story, but Jon Favreau was actually excited to make it.

Knives Out

There is a reason murder mystery flicks have survived for as long as they have in Hollywood. When executed well, they’re engaging and amusing. Yet, this is a type of tale that has been around for a very long time and it feels like an area that’s hard to break new ground in. With Knives Out, writer/director Rian Johnson has managed to pull off just that, by crafting a truly unique and highly entertaining modern whodunit, with a killer, stacked ensemble cast for the ages.

Knives Out centers on the death of renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), who is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday. Following the incident, the entire family is gathered for the investigation, which is led by the inquisitive and quirky detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig)...

New Muppets From Disney

For years, the Muppets have been Disney’s unused puzzle piece. Despite being such a timeless and beloved corner of entertainment, Disney hasn’t been able to figure out how to best use Kermit and the rest in modern times. The 2011 movie The Muppets brought them back in style, but relied heavily on pressing nostalgia buttons. Its 2014 follow-up Muppets Most Wanted didn’t quite hit the same highs and so we got an ABC series, again called The Muppets, which focused on Kermit and Piggy’s post-break-up in a semi-improvisational, Larry Sanders Show, The OfficeCurb Your Enthusiasm style. While it had its strong points, there was a lot of creative meddling and  the show was unable to find its footing, and so it ended after one season...

Lady And The Tramp Live Action

For those of you who were wondering if Disney+’s take on Lady and the Tramp Live Action would be moved to a modern day setting, that won’t be the case. Just like its predecessor, it will take place sometime in the late 1900s-early 1910s. So as you would expect, just like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and others, this new Lady and the Tramp is a relatively faithful adaptation, as opposed to a drastic re-imagining like Maleficent.

For those unfamiliar with Lady and the Tramp’s story, it follows an American cocker spaniel named Lady who is raised in an upper middle-class family, living the life of luxury...
