For many of us, the main draw of the new live-action Beauty and the Beast is Luke Evans’ dangerously handsome Gaston. The classic Disney villain arguably has the best song in the entire original movie, and probably the snazziest outfit of all the Disney baddies. While Belle got a bit of a character upgrade for the new movie (she is now the inventor, instead of her father, because director Bill Condon figured the townspeople need more of a reason to think she’s weird than… she reads books), Gaston also got one too, and it very well might make you like him a little.
So far, the new Power Rangers movie has unleashed nine (9) whole TV spots upon us that, all together, pretty much allow us to piece together the entire plot of the movie. Five kids somehow get glowing coins, stumble upon a spaceship that grows colorful suits on their bodies, and then Rita Repulsa shows up with her magic staff to wreak havoc on their small town of Angel Grove. These teens will have to acclimate to their new superpowers, learn how to drive their prehistoric creature-shaped Zords, and save the world, all while trying to survive high school!
Dan Fogelman, creator of decade-spanning relationship drama This Is Us, seems to be a big fan of ambitious storytelling projects. His latest reported project, entitled, naturally, Life, Itself, has a similar premise to his NBC show: One couple leads a story that spans many years and relationships and generations, taking them from America to Spain and back again. Annette Bening, fresh off her starring turn in last year’s 20th Century Women, is the latest to join the all-star cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Antonio Banderas, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Gareth Edwards pretty much had the dream moviemaking experience when he directed Last year’s Rogue One: He got to be a part of a franchise he’d loved since he was a kid, but he also got to contribute his own ideas to an almost entirely original story within that franchise instead of being bound by the confines of an already-established plotline. At SXSW on Monday, Edwards delivered a keynote speech about his work in Star Wars and becoming a filmmaker, and revealed that one of the planets in Rogue One got its name from a fortuitous misspelling at a coffee shop.
Between huge franchise projects, Ridley Scott is the kind of director who likes to cleanse his palate with a self-contained drama like The Counselor or Body of Lies now and again. After completing Alien: Covenant, that’s exactly what he plans to do: Scott is finalizing a deal to direct All the Money in the World, a Black List script dealing with the high-profile kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, and Natalie Portman might star.
When you learn about writing, there’s one mantra that you’ll hear over and over: Kill your darlings. Sometimes, the only way to make a scene in a book or a paragraph in an article work best is to take out the part of it you love the most, just because hanging onto it isn’t worth the clunkiness it creates. The same is true for film, and oftentimes directors will have to take out really great scenes because they don’t work with the flow of the rest of the movie. Logan is pretty seamlessly put together, but even James Mangold ran into that problem once or twice. He revealed that there was a tribute to Wolverine’s fellow X-Man Jean Grey in the middle of the movie that he had to cut for story reasons. [Some SPOILERS follow for Logan, so if you haven’t seen it yet, run far away.
It’s been a great week for those of us who are really excited for Thor: Ragnarok: between Thor’s new #look, and Jeff Goldblum’s… everything, this movie might be the most entertaining, visuals-wise, Marvel has ever made. And it also might be among the funniest: it’s described as a kind of buddy road trip comedy with Thor and Bruce Banner/Hulk traveling the Universe and stirring up trouble, and Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo historically have some of the funniest moments in the previous Avengers films (“Another!”/“Puny god.”). Couple that with New Zealand’s achingly hysterical Taika Waititi, and you’ve got a pretty potent combo.
Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan’s The Trip franchise is quite possibly the most pure and fun series of films out there. Sure, you’ve got your Avengers and your X-Men and your Dom Torettos, but sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and enjoy two hilarious actors go on road trips across Europe together. We’ve been with them through England, Italy, and now they’re off to gorge themselves on pasta primavera in Spain, and we’ve got your first look at the road ahead.
Warner Bros, so far, has succeeded mightily in getting us all very, very hype for this summer’s Wonder Woman: the poster releases have been gorgeous, and the one full-length trailer we’ve seen looks stunning. Today, we have more good news: a new trailer for the movie will drop tomorrow, and, to whet our appetites, here’s a short look of what we can expect.
Motion-capture is a pretty big business these days, what with all these science fiction franchises featuring tons of computer animated creatures and characters. Mo-cap has been around for a while, but these days, with movies like Avatar and Warcraft and even the new Planet of the Apes series featuring whole worlds built around CGI characters, it seems everyone’s got a hand in the mo-cap pie. We knew that Avengers: Infinity War would feature at least one completely CGI character — Thanos — but with a new cast addition it looks like there will be at least one more.
