Denis Villeneuve is on a streak. From Incendies to Prisoners, Enemy, and Sicario, he’s made some of the more memorable movies of the last few years. (Prisoners, especially, has lingered in my mind.) His next film is a sci-fi alien invasion movie called Arrival and the first trailer is here and it’s just as eerie and evocative as I’ve come to expect from Villeneuve. Full Story

If you've been watching the Olympics, you know how much the past 10 days have been an epic display of #BlackGirlMagic.

Late last week Pajiba published an open letter, penned by an alleged former Warner Brothers staffer using the pseudonym “Gracie Law” (a character name from Big Trouble in Little China). Presumably this was done to protect someone still working in the industry, or with hopes of returning to the industry, and as The Warner Brothers Open Letter gained steam across the internet, two responses emerged: Either this is a scathing take-down of corporate Hollywood, or “Gracie Law” is not real or never had the kind of access at Warners that would give her context for the creative decision-making at the studio, which just saw its second DC Films title open big only to plummet in week two Full Story
