Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Brie Larson Is Captain Marvel

Her casting has been all but confirmed for a while now, but at the end of this year's Marvel panel for the San Diego Comic-Con, Brie Larson was brought on stage and introduced as the MCU's Captain Marvel.



Larson has the role of Carol Danvers, a skilled test pilot whose DNA is melded with that of Kree warrior Mar-Vell. Subsequently, she gains powers such as flight, enhanced strength, damage resistance and the ability to absorb and re-channel energy. Guardians Of The Galaxy's Nicole Perlman and Inside Out's Meg LeFauve have been at work on the script, but there's no director attached yet.

Though it wasn't exactly kept quiet, Larson's presence at the convention was at least easy to explain given that she was also here to promote Kong: Skull Island (the King Kong film put out a first trailer during the Warner Bros. panel).

It's a relief to finally have someone officially playing the part, and Larson – who won an Oscar this year for her work in Room – is a great choice, who can handle comedy and drama equally. We still have a wait ahead of us, though: Captain Marvel won't fly on to screens until March 8, 2019, though there's a chance she could be introduced in the first Avengers: Infinity War film, due April 2018.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
