Donnie Darko, perhaps the cult-iest of cult movies, made barely a ripple when it premiered in theaters in 2001, but since then has become a cult classic phenomenon, an essential film for disenfranchised teens and time travel aficionados alike. And, like, many cult classics these days, it’s getting a theatrical re-release, this time in glorious 4K resolution.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been releasing so many clips lately that you can almost watch the entire movie before its premiere without leaving your computer. Most of them have included information we already know or serve to introduce us to some of the beasts we’ll meet, but one of the new ones released today touches on a very important detail: the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
With TV becoming ever more cinematic, movies feel the need to do what they can to make going to the theater an experience that can’t be gotten anywhere else. That’s why many directors have been pushing for the advent of larger film stock that can be converted to formats like IMAX, to give blockbusters the all-encompassing scope they require for their grandiose stories. The Star Wars saga is the next series to get the treatment, as director Colin Trevorrow says he’s going to shoot Episode IX on 65mm film.
Since the introduction of the Best Animated Feature Oscar at the 74th Academy Awards in 2002, we’ve seen a steady exponential increase in animated movies over the years. Pixar, and, by extent, Disney, has usually dominated the competition, with eight wins out of ten nominations, followed by DreamWorks and Disney’s animation studio. This year, we have a record 27 movies eligible for the award, and while the Academy can pick only five to nominate, for now it’s anyone’s game.
As the Rogue One trailers keep rolling out, they get increasingly more Darth Vader-y. In the first few, we had that shot of the back of his helmet. Then, in the next couple, a new shot of him talking to Ben Mendelsohn’s Director Krennic. Now, the most recent international trailer actually starts off with his “Imperial March” theme and includes a short soundbite of that chilling breathing noise.
For an actor whose superhero prospects haven’t always been stellar, Nicolas Cage sure does love superhero movies. His role as Big Daddy in Kick-Ass was the most positively received, but critics and audiences alike were lukewarm-to-cold on his Johnny Blaze in the Ghost Rider movies (Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance is actually a good movie, okay). Cage isn’t salty about it though, revealing that he really did enjoy this year’s three most recent superhero movies (minus Doctor Strange).
Holy cow! In a turn of events more shocking than what we’ve all experienced over the past 24 hours, Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, has gotten an R rating from the MPAA for “strong erotic sexual content, some graphic nudity, and language.” Boy, bet not even our inner goddesses saw that one coming.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is already looking at four more sequels, despite the fact that the first isn’t even out in theaters yet. The folks Warner Bros. seem pretty sure they have a hit on their hands. While we don’t know a whole lot about the second one, other than it’s set in Paris and will star Johnny Depp in some capacity, we’ve heard as of today that the movie is casting, and looking for one very exciting role: Albus Dumbledore. You might’ve heard of him.
Mindy Kaling is a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood, after graduating from The Office to her very own show, lending her voice talents to Wreck-It Ralph and Inside Out, and set to have a starring role in Ava DuVernay’s upcoming A Wrinkle in Time adaptation. Now, it looks like she and Paul Feig are in serious talks to join forces for a comedy set in the world of late-night broadcast television.
Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) may be the main character of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but let’s be honest, the real reason we’re going to this movie is to see just how fantastic those titular beasts are. Last year, Warner Bros. revealed the names of a few of the creatures we’ll see, and recently we got a few quick looks at them in some of the new trailers, but a new TV spot has the most (and most fantastic) beast footage yet.
Sony’s CG/live action hybrid Peter Rabbit movie has been quietly gathering a pretty high-profile cast, and today it looks like they’ve found another actor to voice something cute and fuzzy: Margot Robbie is currently in talks to lend her vocal talents to the modern adaptation of the Beatrix Potter classic.
Last week, NYCC gave us our first official look at the new Power Rangers movie: five teens happen upon alien artifacts that give them super ninja powers, which they must use to fight off evil. It all looks pretty Power Rangers-y, but also very serious. It’s the dark and gritty Power Rangers reboot nobody was asking for, but we’re getting one anyway. Luckily, we have YouTube, and an evil genius with enough time on their hands to recut the new trailer with footage from the original show.
