There are a few set staples of any high school movie: the scene where one character tours another character around the cafeteria and shows them who the jocks and the nerds are; the scene where one character has something mortifying happen to them and everyone laughs, preferably in a public space like the classroom or the gym; and, of course, a house party scene. Spider-Man: Homecoming, being a high school movie, obviously has at least the third option.
Matt Reeves is the type of director who makes action movies that are primarily character studies: the character-driven empathy of the Planet of the Apes movies were a pleasant surprise and departure from what could have been just another big-budget CGI soup. Reeves is a director who makes you care about the people in his movies, which is why he might be the best choice to direct Ben Affleck’s The Batman after Affleck himself stepped down. Reeves’ work on War for the Planet of the Apes is done, and now that he can turn his attention to his DC movie, he already knows which director he’ll turn to for guidance.
Sometimes Avengers: Infinity War feels like it’s just an excuse for a bunch of actors to have a giant get-together, film it, and add in some special effects later to make them all look cool. Like the shawarma post-credits scene from the first Avengers, but for two-plus hours. Today on set, two scientists, a doctor, and a librarian walked into a La Croix commercial… and made sure to snap a pic.
The Fantastic Four haven’t had a ton of luck in the cinematic arena, mostly due to their movies being somewhere in the range of bland-to-terrible, but because humanity is, by and large, a stubborn bunch of carbon-based organisms, we’re gonna keep making these movies until something sticks and we land on a good one. The infinite monkey theorem does state, after all that an infinite number of monkeys working an infinite number of typewriters will eventually come up with a passable Fantastic Four movie.
Well, that was unexpected. Lucasfilm has just announced that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are no longer at the helm of Star Wars’ Han Solo spinoff movie, due to, you guessed it, that perennial Hollywood scourge: creative differences.
We don’t know a whole lot about the Han Solo movie aside from the fact that it’s about Han Solo and he’s a young lad in it, but we have had some descriptions of the other characters to fuel our speculation engines. Woody Harrelson, for example, is said to be playing a kind of “mentor” to young Solo, which those of us who’ve stayed up to date on the Expanded Universe through the years know to be Alezsandr Badure, Han Solo’s teacher at the Imperial Academy who taught him all his flying skills. But now Woody Harrelson is saying that his character, whose name is “Beckett,” isn’t exactly the Imperial officer type.
Hollywood has been itching to do something with The Twilight Zone for quite a while now, but nothing seems to be sticking. Today brings news that Warner Bros. has officially hired on another screenwriter to pen the script: Christine Lavaf, of Fringe, Falling Skies, and Warner Bros. MonsterVerse fame.
You know those conversations wherein there’s a distinct moment of “Oh my god, I can’t believe that person just said that?” As a look into what it’s like for a Muslim-born man with a traditional family navigating the world of 21st century relationships, Kumail Nanjiani’s The Big Sick has a couple of those. For example: a hilarious new clip features Ray Romano asking Nanjiani how he feels about 9/11. Engage cringe.
It’s a John Wick world, and while the hero himself may be on literally everyone’s hit-list in his movie universe, the real world can’t get enough of him. There will probably be a third movie, but we’re also getting a TV show and a comic series while we wait.
When the first trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle revealed that Colin Firth’s Harry Hart would be back from the dead in the upcoming sequel, it was great news, but not necessarily a surprise. Hart’s return had been hinted at for some time, and it really wouldn’t be a Kingsman movie without his particular debonair style. But exactly how he’ll return has remained a mystery, made all the more strange by the shot in the trailers in which his return is revealed: He seems to be behind glass, perhaps imprisoned, unaware that Eggsy and Merlin are looking at him.
