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

X-Men spin-off, New Mutants Is Gaining Steam

It may come as a shock to many, but there are still some mutants that have not yet made it to the big screen: Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod’s X-Men spin-off, New Mutants, being one of them.

The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone has been on board to helm New Mutants for a while, and has now brought some more Faults alumni into the X-world. Its screenwriting team Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber will be penning 20th Century Fox’s upcoming super-spin-off about the young bunch of ragtag mutants trained by (at different points over the comic's 1983-1991 run) Cable, Magneto and Professor X.

Neustadter and Weber are an inspired choice for the material, having connected with many a young cinemagoer thanks to their work on (500) Days Of Summer, Paper Towns and The Spectacular Now. They also have the upcoming James Franco-directed The Masterpiece on their slate: a behind-the-scenes look at Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic, The Room.

Simon Kinberg is back on producing duties, but the cast (and film’s central characters, of which there are many to choose from) is yet to be confirmed. Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy are heavily rumoured as the gifted youngsters, with Boone’s Instagram account appearing to hold the key to the mutants he hopes to include.

A lifelong fan of New Mutants, Boone is currently a very busy man. As well as his X-entry, he is tasked with bringing a new version of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles to the big screen, and is writing and directing two Stephen King adaptations: The Stand and Lisey’s Story.

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…

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). 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.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
