Beirut is a period piece political thriller that doesn’t need to be period and is weirdly unconcerned with how its politics read in 2018. With a script by Tony Gilroy (of the Bourne franchise, Rogue One’s infamous reshoots, and, most importantly, THE CUTTING EDGE), and directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), it’s a good-looking film that calls back to the 1970s heyday of political thrillers, before that was just a tonal beat for action movies. Full Story

Chris Evans is currently on Broadway, which means he is excused from most of the Avengers: Infinity War press. (He is expected at the premiere on Monday, which means he will still be rocking That Mustache. He’s going to look like that at the Avengers premiere. Full Story

Villainy is Ed Skrein’s thing – he’s been a villain in his last several projects. But he’s also been working on the film adaptation of James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk. Full Story

Welcome to the Hotel Artemis

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 18, 2018 16:51:44 April 18, 2018 16:51:44

Jodie Foster’s new movie is a straight-up John Wick knock-off, and I do not care, it looks super fun. It’s called Hotel Artemis, and except for the near-future, vaguely dystopian setting, it might as well be called Hotel Continental. The Hotel Artemis runs on rules suspiciously similar to the Continental in the John Wick movies: Refuge for criminals with art deco styling, no weapons/killing on the premises, criminal overlords with dumb nicknames like “Bowery King” and “Wolf King”. Full Story

Yesterday afternoon a flashy headline blared across the internet: STEVEN SPIELBERG DIRECTING SUPERHERO MOVIE! Nerds everywhere sh*t their pants. The thing is, it’s a little misleading. Technically, yes, Spielberg is developing a movie based on a comic book for DC Films. But he’s not making a movie for the DC Extended Universe, which includes Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Full Story
