The Incredibles Return

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 18, 2018 16:54:53 June 18, 2018 16:54:53

The Incredibles has stood for fourteen years as one of the best superhero movies ever made. In the time between the original and the sequel out now, The Incredibles has become so beloved that the film begins with an intro from the cast thanking fans for their patience, sticking out the fourteen-year wait for a sequel (which was never promised and not a guarantee and please stop giving people even more reasons to feel possessive over movies). Full Story

Warning: You are going to need Kleenex. Like, a whole box of tissues. The Fred Rogers documentary Won’t You be My Neighbor? is basically a ninety-minute cry fest. I’m not an easy movie-crier, but I started crying in the first five minutes and did not stop until the end. Morgan Neville, the Oscar-winning documentarian behind 20 Feet From Stardom, has made a film that is half documentary about the life and work of Fred Rogers, and half gentle bath in Mister Rogers’ unwavering, incandescent acceptance and love. Full Story

Aquaman isn’t due until December, and for the first time this decade Warner Brothers and DC Films have not sprayed us down with marketing every minute of every day. With Aquaman they have displayed actual restraint, which means that we are only just now, six months out, starting to see the marketing machine grind into gear. Full Story

He co-stars with Mia Wasikowska, and they both turned out for the premiere last night. Full Story

Wonder Woman 2 began production today and to mark the occasion Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins tweeted out first-look images of Diana Prince and Steve Trevor. The sequel is titled Wonder Woman 1984—GREAT title—and so this is 1980s fashion for Diana and Steve. It’s not completely tragic? Observe Steve Trevor in his 1980s glory: Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor! #WW84 Full Story

Jodie Foster in Hotel Artemis

In case you, like me, watched the trailer for Hotel Artemis and thought, Oh, a fun John Wick knock-off, allow me to disabuse you of the notion. Despite obvious similarities, particularly in the “hotel for criminals” vein, Hotel Artemis isn’t really a John Wick knock-off. There’s a likeness, to be sure, but Hotel Artemis is not the wall-to-wall action of John Wick, it has a rather surprising amount of exposition. Full Story

We’ve known for years that diversity is good business. It pays dividends to appeal to more than just one demographic. And some groups are so starved for decent content, if you make something halfway good targeted at the overlooked and underserved, you can earn a nice little profit. Make something actually good and you get Black Panther’s world-stomping success. Full Story

Toni Collete in Hereditary

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 11, 2018 19:36:46 June 11, 2018 19:36:46

Billed out of Sundance as the next Rosemary’s Baby and/or Exorcist, and hailed as the most terrifying movie you’ll ever see, Hereditary had an impossible hill of hype to climb. And indeed, it could not climb that hill, earning a D+ CinemaScore on its opening weekend. I saw this one at a Saturday matinee and could feel the majority of the audience turning against it, and one dude angrily hurled popcorn dregs at his friend for “making me sit through that”, while another guy audibly harped about wanting his money back. Full Story

Ryan Gosling goes to the moon

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 11, 2018 17:08:14 June 11, 2018 17:08:14

We’re just a few months away from the fall festival circuit and award-season movie jamboree, which is why there have been so many f*cking trailers in the last week. The latest addition is for another automatic contender, First Man. It’s the re-team of Ryan Gosling and Damien Chazelle, following La La Land, and it’s about Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 mission. Full Story

You don’t need me to tell you about how today feels, and you don’t need me to tell you that Twitter is frequently a terrible, dumpster of a place to be. But what you might not know, and what might help a little today, is the revelation that Lin-Manuel Miranda, in addition to being a massive nonstop creative force, has become a kind of ad hoc Twitter hype person and digital hug. Full Story
