Star Wars Celebration, a sort of mini-Comic Con dedicated solely to all things Star Wars, was held in London over the weekend. (There won’t be a Hall H Star Wars presentation this year, and one wonders how long before Disney starts doing this for Marvel, too.) There wasn’t much actual news to come out of the event—we already knew about Alden Ehrenreich Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Ghostbusters opens today. Are you going this weekend? I can’t remember the last time my friends and I scrambled to rearrange schedules like we’ve been doing the last few days.

That’s pretty much the quickest way to get me interested in a movie. Tell me it’s about high school. It’s been a long, long f-cking time. And I’m still obsessed with high school and teen life. No matter what changes, the basic dramas and emotions of teenagers remain the same. Full Story

Ghostbusters starts with a laugh, as an historical mansion tour guide—Silicon Valley’s Zach Woods, doing more in five minutes than many can do in an entire film—gives his spiel about the supposed haunting of the “Aldridge Mansion”, describing a murderous daughter entombed in her home’s basement (shades of Erszebet Bathory). Full Story

Richard and Mildred Loving were married. There was a time, not too long ago, when that wasn’t allowed. Loving is the true story of their right to love each other and be husband and wife.

And sometimes, even expecting something good, your expectations are blown out of the water and you walk away from something great. Such is the case with Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the fourth feature film from New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi Full Story
