Universal and Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the upcoming sequel to 1996’s Twister, Twisters, during Super Bowl LVII. This summer, the epic studio disaster movie returns with an adrenaline-pumping, seat-gripping, big-screen thrill ride that puts you in direct contact with one of nature’s most wondrous—and destructive—forces. From the producers of the Jurassic, Bourne and Indiana Jones series comes Twisters, a current-day chapter of the 1996 blockbuster, Twister. Directed by Lee Isaac Chung, the Oscar nominated writer-director of Minari, Twisters stars Daisy…"Twisters Gets Super Bowl LVIII Trailer"
The TIFF-premiering Dumb Money does for Wall Street Bets and GameStop what The Big Short did for the subprime mortgage crisis. You can thank Taylor Swift and her concert film for Sony changing their release plans. The initial plans were a wide release on October 6. But because of Taylor and the Swifties, the wide opening is now taking place on September 29. It’s for the best because the awards contender demands our attention even…"Dumb Money: The GameStop Movie We Didn’t Know We Needed"
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is a nice offering of escapist entertainment and some good summer fun at the movie theater. Bumblebee was a breath of fresh air for the Transformers franchise with more of a focus on heart rather than action. This film offers just as much fun as what we saw in 2018 while adding way more action back into the mix. It probably helps that Michael Bay is not sitting in the…"Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Offers Some Good Summer Fun"
From the outside looking in, The Bad Guys might be about bad guys but there’s a redemption story at the core of the film. Is there some sort of clause in Sam Rockwell’s contract where he is required to play characters with a redemption story? We’ve seen this so far in a few films now. Mind you, it’s been a few years since the last redemption story starring Rockwell. Maybe it’s the whole animation thing…"The Bad Guys Is A Redemption Story"
In the Heights, the phenomenal film and Broadway adaptation, soars onto 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray for audiences to take in from home. Neither Jon M. Chu or Lin-Manuel Miranda are strangers to diverse productions. Chu hit it big with Crazy Rich Asians a few years ago. Miranda, meanwhile, has had no shortage of hits come from his visionary mind. Both In the Heights and Hamilton were hits on the stage. In a perfect world,…"In the Heights Soars Onto 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD"
In the Heights is a phenomenal film and the big screen Broadway adaptation is well on its way to joining the great screen classic musicals. Neither Jon M. Chu or Lin-Manuel Miranda are strangers to diverse productions. Chu hit it big with Crazy Rich Asians a few years ago. Miranda, meanwhile, has had no shortage of hits come from his visionary mind. Both In the Heights and Hamilton were hits on the stage. In a…"In the Heights Is A Phenomenal Musical"
The award-winning stage musical, Hamilton, about the Founding Father hits Disney+ on Friday just in time for the Independence Day holiday weekend. “I am not throwing away my shot!” “No one else was in the room where it happened.” “Talk less, smile more.” Unless you’ve been living in cave during the past several years, you’re probably familiar with Lin-Manuel Miranda. If In the Heights didn’t make him a household name, Hamilton certainly did. This is…"Hamilton: Award-Winning Musical Hits Disney+"
A well-made feature film debut led by great performances, Monsters and Men splits the narrative into three while telling an all-too familiar story. Writer-director Reinaldo Marcus Green takes us to Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood just north of Crown Heights. When a father plays witness to–what else–the shooting of an unarmed black man, all hell starts to break loose in their community. This is how Green chooses to start the film and with this, we’re off and running. The…"Monsters and Men: A Well-Made Debut"
