The advertising for Gringo is somewhat misleading, so realign your expectations now—this is not an R-rated weed comedy a la Pineapple Express. No, Gringo is more like a Coen Brothers movie in which a pot pill is the Macguffin. In fact, pot is so unimportant, beyond being a plot device, it’s not even entirely clear if the Macguffin pill is for medicinal use or recreational consumption. Full Story

 A couple of years ago, JJ Abrams sprung a new Cloverfield movie on us after only a few months of hype. That movie, 10 Cloverfield Lane, turned out to be pretty good. And then began the hype for the next Cloverfield movie, which was, by that point, assumed to be a project called God Particle, which had been percolating at Abrams’ shingle Bad Robot since 2012. Full Story

It has arrived. Officially. Black Panther premiered last night and all my dreams for what I hoped the premiere of Black Panther would look like came true. LOOK AT ALL OF THIS BLACK EXCELLENCE. I actually don’t think I ever dreamed this big – that a film about an African nation, with an all-black cast and helmed by a black director would get this much of a celebration. Full Story

There are certain celebrities who do press tours that feel WAY too long. Halfway through a Blake Lively press tour I’m like, “can this movie open already so I don’t have to see her face every time I turn on my television or hear about how many times her baby burped that day?” Same goes for Kate Hudson. Full Story

There’s a common problem with biopics and historical dramas of trying to do too much. It’s what makes a biopic feel overstuffed and shallow at the same time—there’s a lot of information being imparted, but the constant stream of exposition means less time devoted to story and character. Full Story

Queen of Katwe is a Disney movie set in Uganda starring an all black cast and directed by a woman. Its heroine is a girl. There are no white saviours. It’s about an 11 year-old chess prodigy who overcomes impossible circumstances to achieve greatness in a game usually reserved for the prep school elite. Full Story

Zoe Saldana in Nina

About halfway through the Nina Simone biopic, titled simply Nina, you start to feel really bad for everyone involved because there is a lot of earnestness on display. Zoe Saldana, heavily criticized for her involvement, is obviously trying very hard as Simone, and David Oyelowo Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s been six days since the Oscar nominations were announced and every day criticism of the Academy’s pattern of exclusion continues to grow as more and more actors are speaking up and out against the lack of diversity represented on the supposed list of what was the best in film over the last year.  Read Full Intro

David Oyelowo’s suit was the one I saw first. It’s three pieces and it’s got a purple-on-purple dot thing going on. I ask you, why wouldn’t you? If you’re not nominated for a career-defining award (or really, the predecessor to one and you’re going to be mostly remembered for smirking in a GIF to begin with. Full Story

David Oyelowo and Kate Mara go on the lam

Relief—a movie trailer that doesn’t make me want to crawl under my bed and hide! After a series of trailers that I had to watch with one hand over my eyes because the events depicted are pants-sh*tting scary, the trailer for the upcoming thriller Captive is a relative walk in the park. Full Story
