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

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

I think Netflix has a slight problem. I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and debuted just a few weeks later on Netflix with no fanfare. Yesterday they released the trailer for The Most Hated Woman in America starring Melissa Leo Full Story

There are several live-action Little Mermaid projects in the works, including one that has Lin-Manuel Miranda attached, but the first to theaters is The Little Mermaid brought to you by your worst nightmares because oh my god this movie looks ATROCIOUS. The totally bitching Atomic Blonde trailer dropped today but I have to write about Bargain Bin Little Mermaid and now I’m wondering how and when I accidentally insulted Lainey. Full Story

Kristen Stewart won a Cesar Award for Olivier Assayas’s Clouds of Sils Maria, and she now reteams with writer/director Assayas for a new movie called Personal Shopper. It’s a slightly trashy weird artsy Euro horror movie, and while it won’t be for everyone, it did scare the bejeebus out of me. Full Story

New Wave Thor

Entertainment Weekly has the first look at Thor: Ragnarok on its cover this week, and it is an Eighties-fantastic explosion of COLOR and LIGHT and HAIR. Thor’s got an entirely new look, including a new haircut—which I am way into—and a suspiciously missing hammer. Full Story
