As far as the rest of this summer movie season is concerned, Ingrid Goes West is my most anticipated film (sorry, Spidey). Aubrey Plaza continues her totally unreal tour of pop culture insanity (see also: Legion) in the latest trailer for the Sundance favorite — a social media parable in which Plaza plays a self-destructive, Instagram-obsessed young woman who seeks validation through likes, which she confuses for legit human love…you know, like all of us.
Now that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg’s dads have got their “co-dad game on lockdown,” it’s time to shake things up for the holidays. The first trailer for Daddy’s Home 2, aka Sofia Coppola’s most anticipated film of the year, has arrived and it’s brought the grandaddy of all problems — literally — along with it. Yep, grandpa’s comin’ home and he’s Mel Gibson.
Marvel and Sony have already set a 2019 release date for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters in just a few weeks. But as you probably suspected, that momentous collaboration won’t end with two films, as Tom Holland himself has confirmed Marvel’s — totally not shocking at all — plans for a complete Spidey trilogy. It may be the least surprising news you read all day, but it’s still comforting to know that Spider-Man is back in good hands (for at least three films and a few MCU appearances, anyway).
While Pixar’s animated world of anthropomorphic automobiles may very well continue on past Cars 3, there’s a whole lot of finality going on in the final trailer for Pixar’s latest chapter in the racing saga. “One new turn…One more dream…One last chance” reads the title cards in the new trailer for the sequel, in which Owen Wilson’s Lightning McQueen suffers a crippling accident that threatens to end his career. I swear this movie is still totally for kids.
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheree, Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins looks so darn lovelyyyy. (Sorry, never sorry.) As you might have guessed from my dumb little rhyme there, today brings some new photos from Mary Poppins Returns, Disney’s upcoming musical sequel in which Blunt steps into Julie Andrews’ whimsical shoes as the magical British nanny.
Tales of the apocalypse are no longer particularly terrifying in 2017, when the end of the world feels all but impending. The real horror is what happens after the world ends, when the surviving few are forced to continue on and cope with what’s left of it. The same could also be said for the devastating experience of losing a loved one, especially if that loss is unnatural and witnessed firsthand by the bereaved. This is the concept that profoundly transforms the basic premise of It Comes at Night into an emotional thesis in which filmmaker Trey Edward Shults posits grief as a personal post-apocalypse — how do you live in the end of the world after your world comes to an end?
Has this ever happened to you? Your kid is browsing the ol’ digital video library for something fun to watch when they settle on Captain Phillips, that contemporary Tom Hanks feel good classic. Unfortunately, it has some “mature content,” like a handful of swears and intense moments, and you don’t even want to think about what Paul Greengrass’ camerawork is going to do to that kid. Lucky for you, Sony’s “Clean Version” initiative is here to sanitize all that questionable content, making several movies in their library fun for the whole family.
After years of taunting us with the possibility of a (super) late-coming sequel to Top Gun, it’s actually happening. Tom Cruise is back, which guarantees our butts will be in those seats on opening day, no matter what. If you thought they were going to go with a basic title like Top Gun 2 for this major movie event, you were sadly mistaken.
Universal was initially taking more of a “wait and see” approach to their burgeoning monster movie franchise, but that changed last week when the studio formally announced plans to kick things into high gear. The newly-dubbed and somewhat ambitious “Dark Universe” (not to be confused with Warner Bros.’ long-developing DC film) will feature long-rumored reboots like Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolfman, and rumor has it Universal is eyeing another one of their franchise super-stars to take the lead in the latter.
The photo that launched a meme that inspired a social media dream is now becoming a reality because sometimes the internet has some okay ideas (sometimes). Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o are teaming up to co-star in a buddy movie directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Issa Rae — if that sounds too good to be true, that’s because it was…until it wasn’t.
