#JOHNWICK Kills It At @fantasticfest & Red Carpet Images

For all the fans who couldn't make it to Austin- we are pleased to share photos from last night's Red Carpet Gala at the JOHN WICK Fantastic Fest Screening, and an exclusive look at the post-screening Q&A with Keanu Reeves, Adrianne Palicki, as well as the filmmaking team of Chad Stahelski, David Leitch and Basil Iwanyk!

Rian Johnson Talks About Star Wars: Episode VIII

We were definitely excited when Looper and Breaking Bad director Rian Johnson was selected to craft Star Wars: Episode VIII and, most likely, Episode IX. From the sounds of his recent reports on the new job, his experience working within the revitalised franchise is more positive than even he expected. Now the below doesn't have much in the way of new information about the films, unsurprisingly, but should reassure people that Johnson feels creatively inspired by the whole Lucasfilm vision.

A lifelong Star Wars fan, Johnson is enthusiastic about the work, which helps assuage some worries that directors with vision are being hired and then yoked into a system that negates what they can bring to the work. Chatting to Terry Gilliam on the TalkHouse Podcast, Johnson was positive about his time so far, even though it’s early days.

“I’m just starting into it, but so far it’s the most fun I’ve ever had writing. It’s just joyous,” he says. “The first movies I was making in my head were pa…

Tim Burton's Big Eyes Trailer Has Arrived

Usually to be found around grotesque but strangely compelling creatures, or putting Johnny Depp in make-up and wigs, Tim Burton has made a very different sort of film for his latest, Big Eyes. Even Big Fish had touches of the fantastical, but this is a stylish and completely real-life tale. Check out the first trailer for the film, which stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz

Big Eyes chronicles the story of Walter and Margaret Keane, who became known in the '50s and '60s for crafting one of the first mass-marketed art sensations. Their ocularly enhanced pictures were sold in petrol stations and small stores around the US. In a sexist twist reflecting the age, it was Walter alone who became famous for the pictures, parlaying the fiction that he created them into TV talk-show stardom. But it was Margaret who actually did the work, and claimed her share of the profits when she and Walter divorced. To prove her ownership in court, the judge ordered a paint-off between the pair.

Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life.

So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom, starring Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgård, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer.

The Maze Runner Review: Thank God, Another Good YA Movie!

The Science Fiction of The Maze Runner ensconces you in enjoyable dystopia.

As I've complained many times in my reviews, the entire offering of movies seems to be at a crossroads. Caught up in bad transitions from the books that made them so popular in the first place, the movies themselves have largely disappointed, plagued by either significant rewrites or love stories with actors I couldn't care less about. Fortunately, The Maze Runner doesn't come close to shorting out its chances for sequels, even though some plot holes are evident.

Set in a dytopian society where only male boys seem to be running things, we learn about the arrival of the newest recuit Thomas (Dylan O'Brien), who like the others has not idea how he got to The Glade, a peaceful wooded area surrounded by the menacing walls of The Maze. Given a monthly ration of food and supplies by an unknown agency, the camp is comprised of both leaders (Aml Ameen) and soldiers (Ki Hong Lee and Will Poulter), …

This is Where I Leave You Review: Ensemble Talent Wasted on Neutered Plot

This is Where I Leave You wants desperately to be the next Big Chill. Here's why it's not even close. For Director Shawn Levy, life must feel pretty good. A master of producing some of the dullest comedy films in recent memory, Levy churns these out like a cow produces milk, collecting his paycheck and moving on the next low-hanging fruit. His newest submission This is Where I Leave You is more of the same, a dull, formulaic mess that never utilizes its considerable talents above a resting heartbeat.

When news reaches the Attman children that their father has passed away, the four adult siblings return to their childhood home to deal with the repercussions. Daughter Wendy (Tina Fey) is in an unsatifying marriage, while brother Phillip (Adam Driver) lives a fast life full of excuses but little success. Meanwhile, elder-brother Judd (Jason Bateman) learns that his wife is having an affair with his boss, while Brother Paul (Stahl) seems to be the only responsible one, ha…

Tusk: An Open Letter to Kevin Smith

We deliver a message to Director Kevin Smith, and it isn't a hearty pat on the back. Dear Kevin Smith,

As a fan of your films - including Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Clerks I/II - it's clear that the appreciation for your past work is certainly appropriate. And yet, you've endured a bit of a struggle lately, with many moviegoers unwilling to give you the same credit. I would not be saying anything new by reminding you that Jersey Girl is generally agreed as being one of the worst films ever made. Well sir, after seeing your latest submission Tusk, it's clear that my list needs to be updated: Tusk is not only the worst film of the year, but it could be the worst film of all time.

The premise - concocted during one of your Smodcast podcast episodes - of a loudmouth online personality (Justin Long) who is kidnapped and turned into a walrus by psychopath Howard Howe (Michael Parks) is unbelievable to everyone who hears it. And yet this comedy/horror…

It’s tough enough – especially in films – when someone has had an abysmal one night stand and just wants to leave as quickly as possible once dawn breaks. But for Analeigh Tipton’s Megan, things are not quite that simple thanks to some serious weather issues.


Megan is a woman in a serious rut. Her couple friends Faiza (Jessica Szohr) and Cedric (Scott Mescudi) want her to move out. In order to cheer herself up and get back out in the world, she reluctantly agrees to a one-night stand with Alec (Miles Teller).

David Ayer Is In Talks To Direct DC's Suicide Squad

DC property centers on supervillains with a chance for redemption

David Ayer, the gritty filmmaker whose World War II tank drama Fury hits theaters next month, is circling Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment project Suicide Squad.

The project had been in development with Justin Marks attached to write for a couple of years, but sources say it was put on the back burner when focus turned to Warner Bros.' other DC Entertainment property Justice League.

The Suicide Squad team, also known as Task Force X, was created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, and first appeared in Brave and the Bold No. 25. It centers on the characters Deadshot, King Shark, Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn.

The DC property about convicted supervillains who have a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions has been in the works for some time at Warner Bros. Marks wrote a script in 2011. Sources say Warner Bros. started looking for a director earlier in 2014.

Chuck Roven is producing.

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's another superhero coming to the small screen!

CBS has given a series commitment to a one-hour drama project for “Supergirl,” based on characters from DC Comics, an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap on Friday.

The drama, which will be written and executive produced by Greg Berlanti (“Green Lantern,” “Arrow,” “The Flash”) and Ali Adler (“Chuck,” “No Ordinary Family”), will follow the exploits of Kara Zor-El. Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she's been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. (That would be Superman, for those not familiar with comic-book lore.) But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

The character of Supergirl was previously portrayed by Helen Slater in the 1…
