The lasso of truth is as much a part of Wonder Woman’s mythos as the fact that she’s an Amazon and wears a sparkly tiara. But what some don’t know is that the also has real world origins: the man who created Wonder Woman is the same guy who invented the lie detector test.
We all love The Great British Bake-Off (or, as it’s referred to in the States, The Great British Baking Show), and considering the competition show’s massive popularity even amongst people who can’t boil water without catching something on fire, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came up with a mockumentary version. Enter Cook Off!
It is the adrenaline rush the box office sorely needed after a summer that could accurately be described as “pretty bad” — the new take on Stephen King’s doorstop of a novel is the best horror opening ever, the highest single-day box office for an R-rated movie, the lowest-budgeted movie to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, and now it’s the biggest opening for a September movie in history.
There’s a lot more action coming i this Wednesday’s new trailer for Jumanji, and The Rock has done us all a favor of posting a teaser with all the best bits. Motorcycles! Piggyback rides! A giant hippopotamus! Jack Black saying “I can’t even”!
For a lot of young folks, Michael Keaton is their first introduction to a cinematic Batman, his version of the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie still considered one of the most lauded and fun interpretations of Bruce Wayne to this day. But even the best actors need to know when to call it quits, and Keaton recently explained what drove him to say no to Batman 3.
George Clooney’s Suburbicon looks like a high-tension fever dream of suburban America, where a seeming idyll devolves quickly into a hellscape of murder, lies, and broken glasses. It just premiered at TIFF to somewhat mixed reviews, and a new trailer has arrived on the heels of its screening.
Aardman Animations, the folks who brought us Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace & Gromit, are back with another delightful feature about a young caveman whose way of life is on the brink of extinction. Early Man stars the voice talents of Eddie Redmayne as Stone Age caveman Dug whose tribe is caught between one era of man and another wielding weapons made of metal, mammoths, and soccer.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from movies, it’s not to experiment with death. But that won’t stop one group of young folks from engaging in their fun new pastime of competitive dying. Flatliners, a remake of Joel Schumacher’s 1990 cult film, posits that dying for a couple of minutes gives these kids a new appreciation for the lives they have, until their deaths start to catch up with them. Never play with forces you can’t fully control.
Netflix’s scramble to cut some kind of deal with Disney after the company announced their own Disney-exclusive streaming service last month seems to have come to naught, as CEO Bob Iger announced that Marvel and Star Wars movies would also be among the films appearing exclusively on the new app Disney hopes to launch by 2019. Better get those Moana viewings in fast, folks.
Some movies are worth seeing just to watch two immensely talented actors emote the hell out of each other. Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn’s upcoming Una fits that bill to a T. It hit the festival circuit around this time last year but hasn’t gotten a release until now, and the buzz around its two stars has us intrigued.
If you’ve taken a history class, you know about Watergate, and you know it was “Deep Throat,” the FBI insider who brought the scandal down with secret phone calls to The Washington Post. But it wasn’t until 2005 that the public learned of Deep Throat’s true identity: he was Mark Felt, a special agent and the FBI’s Associate Director from 1972-73. In the new film Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, Felt is played by the suitably deep-voiced Liam Neeson.
In the new Star Wars trilogy, the First Order is basically the Empire Part II, complete with a number of ships and vehicles of war that are direct callbacks to what their predecessors had 80 years prior. You’d think they’d hire some new architects. Today brings news of two very cool, very scary-looking First Order vehicles: the sinister AT-M6, and the equally-sinister Dreadnought.
