But it does have a really cool golden bird. A new trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has come out and this one gives a better look at Newt Scamander’s many fantastic beasts, among them, a golden bird that is maybe a thunderbird. There are, however, no owls. Am very disappointed as I got a great grey owl Full Story

We missed a lot when World War Brange took over the celebrity news cycle last week. This week’s tabloid are about to drop. I suspect we might be getting another round of Brange ugly very soon. Before that happens, let’s catch up on one of the most important but overlooked issues from last week: Jake Gyllenhaal Full Story

The “indie cancer dramedy” is a well-established sub-genre populated by films like 50/50, The Fault In Our Stars, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and of course the granddaddy of them all, Terms of Endearment. This is such a specific type of film that if you watch the trailer and think it looks like a fake movie trailer from Saturday Night Live, you would be forgiven because this is exactly the sort of movie that would be parodied on SNL. Full Story

Oh hey. I’m back from my procedure. It was fine at the time. But now I’m home and the freezing has worn off so this is where I find Justin Timberlake in the extended trailer for his concert film, Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids, premiering on Netflix October 12. Full Story

If ever a movie needed to be rated R, it’s When the Bough Breaks, the evil-surrogate “thriller” from Screen Gems, the latest in what has become their annual fall tradition of releasing a bad genre movie aimed at black audiences (see also: The Perfect Guy, No Good Deed). I like the idea of a studio deciding that they are going to make the effort every year to put out a movie for an under-served audience, but f*cking hell I wish they’d try a little harder to make a good one. Full Story

It’s fall, which means it’s time for trailers for award bait films, holiday-season tent poles, and the utter dreck that gets buried out back during January. This post is about a road-comedy movie starring Owen Wilson Full Story

Scarlett Johansson unplugs from the Matrix

I know Ghost in the Shell comes from a super famous manga comic from the 1980s, but the teasers just released for the movie make it look like a knock-off Matrix. The teasers, which you can watch below in one video, are just a few seconds each and reveal distinct visuals with no context. We get a good look at Scarlett Johansson Full Story

Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the 1960 Western The Magnificent Seven—itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 film Seven Samurai—was the opening film at TIFF. I missed the press screening, so I had to wait a couple days to see it, and during that time everyone kept telling me how horrible it is. Full Story
