Chris Evans is “surrendering”

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 15, 2017 19:50:53 March 15, 2017 19:50:53

That’s what he was reading when he spoke to Esquire for their new issue to promote the upcoming Gifted – The Surrender Experiment. Have you read it? It was a book people were talking about a couple of years ago, in short about letting life lead you. I got through half of it. And then I started reading Shonda Rhimes’s Year Of Yes which, at least for me, because we all interpret differently, was more resonant. Full Story

This is a BAD IDEA

Today in This Is A Terrible F*cking Idea, Seriously, Whose Idea Was This news, Warner Brothers is exploring the possibility of rebooting The Matrix. Everything is sequels and reboots these days, so it’s not outside the realm of expectation that someone would have this idea—apparently producer Joel Silver had previously approached the studio about doing a new/another Matrix movie—it’s just that it’s so obviously a bad idea I can’t believe it’s survived long enough to make into a trade. Full Story

Do you miss Daniel Craig?

It’s been a while, right? Daniel Craig stepped out today in London for the Into Film Awards to honour emerging talent. Whenever we talk about Daniel, we have to talk about Bond. And there’s been some Bond news, sort of. Full Story

Yesterday it was announced that Sony will finally make the sequel to their 2011 Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake. Sony is skipping the other books in Stieg Larsson’s trilogy, though, and going right to the new book, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, written by David Lagercrantz. That’s maybe not a bad idea. Full Story

“God Only Knows”…

I smiled. I smiled at the end when Andrew Lincoln smiles. It’s the song. I can’t help the feelings I get when I hear that song. Have you see the Love Actually teaser? โฮวววว teaser Love Actually ของ Red Nose Day มาแว้ว pic.twitter.com/6iv7N3Rs1H Full Story

Kong: Skull Island – great monsters, unintentional comedy

Kong: Skull Island opened this weekend with $61 million, which is a respectable spring opener, but well short of Godzilla’s $93 million haul in 2014. Kong is a prequel to Godzilla, and the second entry into Warner Brothers’ budding monster-centric cinematic universe, so slightly deflated numbers aren’t the best sign in the world (read: diminishing returns). Full Story

And barefoot, as she makes history at the Canadian Screen Awards, winning three different CSAs, one for Best Actress – Film for The Other Half, acting in Orphan Black (her fourth statue in a row for the role), and another for producing the show. Orphan Black was named Best TV Drama. Still, it didn’t seem like she was expecting to go three for three. Full Story

Meet Baby Driver

After Edgar Wright dropped out of Ant-Man, he went to work on an original script he’d written called Baby Driver, which is not a helpful title. Is it about a baby who drives? A driver of babies? A person named “Baby Driver”? Turns out that last one was pretty close, as Ansel Elgort Full Story

I’m trying so hard to keep my expectations tempered because the DC movies are really good at trailers and really bad at everything else, but goddamn these Wonder Woman trailers are SO good. The latest is the “Origins” trailer, introducing us to Diana’s childhood and training on Themyscira. Full Story

Anna Kendrick in Table 19

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 10, 2017 21:06:43 March 10, 2017 21:06:43

The first thing you need to know is that despite the way its trailer makes it look, Table 19 is not a romantic comedy. The second thing you need to know is that it has an 18% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and I AM HERE TO DEFEND IT. Table 19 is the kind of mid-range, adult-oriented, not-quite-comedy, not-quite drama character ensemble movie that barely gets made any more, and it has a specific kind of losery charm and can-do pluck and I f*cking like it. Full Story
