Movie Review: Magicians: Life in the Impossible

Magic doc has some tricks up its sleeve.
Review by Brandon Wolfe

Magic is one of those areas of entertainment that can either make audiences cheer or wince. A good magic trick can always elicit a solid “wow,” but a commonly held perception of magic is that it’s often corny. As with anything, the difference comes down to skill and presentation. What can truly great magicians do to strike awe into the masses? What’s the trick behind the tricks?

Magicians: Life in the Impossible is a documentary that delves deep into the world of magicians and their craft, chronicling four different subjects over the span of four years to see how they each approach the timeless art of illusion. There’s Jon Armstrong, a self-proclaimed nerd who has conquered the art of the card trick; Brian Gillis, an erstwhile Tonight Show regular who now teaches magic at conferences; Jan Rouven, a German magician quickly rising up the ranks in Las Vegas; and David Minkin, an illusionist developing a television series.

Review: Cinemark Arden 14 Theaters

Cinemark tears down to rebuild an pseudo-elegant experience that's missing something.
Review by Matt Cummings
Regardless of where you live, it's clear that a renaissance is happening in theaters across the country. Hungry to lure moviegoers from their hi-def platforms at home, theater chains in the Sacramento region have been stepping up their games with more than just better food and adult beverages. Those standards now meet up with reserved seating, reclining leather chairs, and fewer seats to make the experience more exclusive. For the rebuilt Cinemark Arden 14 Theater, it's a lot of both, with most done very well. But something was missing from our recent visit, and we're not quite sure what to think of it.

Situated on the old grounds of The Century Stadium 14 Theater, Cinemark Arden has ditched the domes for a corner building situated in the back corner of the property. Essentially, you're sitting where you used to park. Encased in an appealing brick …

Sons Of Anarchy Spinoff Is One Step Closer To Becoming A Reality

THR is reporting 'Sons' creator Kurt Sutter will co-write, exec produce and direct the project.

FX has officially ordered a pilot for the project, titled Mayans MC,

Sons of Anarchy co-creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James co-wrote the pilot script. Sutter will exec produce and James will co-exec produce the drama from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions. Sutter is also set to direct the pilot, which begins production in March.

Mayans MC is set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali-Mexi border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel and his need for respect from the women he loves.

The Mayans played a pivotal role on Sons, which was FX's highest-rated drama series in the cable network's history during its seven-season run.

Sutter first revealed he was developing an offshoot of the popular franchise in a cover story for The Hollywood Reporter in August 2015 prior to the launch of his period …

#SNAPCHAT TO CREATE FIRST-EVER 3D INTERACTIVE LENS FOR RELEASE OF “UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS”

3D Lens Launching December 1, 2016 in Advance of Film’s Release on January 6, 2017

Watch #Netflix Offline With The New Download Feature

Here's some news from Netflix to make your travel and holiday plans a little easier.

As announced earlier this morning, Netflix is bringing offline downloads to your phone or tablet. Available on iOS or Android devices, users can select shows or movies to download now and watch at their convenience, even if they're offline.

At first glance, hour-long episodes of shows appear to take up about 200-250mb of space on your mobile device, so plan accordingly.

Business Insider pointed out that most of the available programs seem to be Netflix original series, though the newly released Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life is not included. Other Netflix original series, such as Stranger Things, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the newly added program about Queen Elizabeth II, The Crown, are ready to download.

Though not every series is available, much like shows on Amazon Prime's video platform, production studios may decide to alter their agreements with Netflix to become available for …

First Look At Alpha 5 From The Upcoming Power Rangers Movie

Director Dean Israelite and his design team would modernise – or in this case, weird-up – the look of their loyal robot pal, Alpha 5. IGN got their hands on the first image.

Alpha 5 (who will be voiced in this incarnation by Bill Hader), is the enthusiastic artificial intelligence known for outbursts including his trademark "ay-yi-yi-yi!". And from the looks of this, he's been at the hormone supplements.

With Bryan Cranston voicing powerful, peaceful alien Zordon and Elizabeth Banks physically present as villain Rita Repulsa, the movie will find the Rangers battling Rita's evil schemes and defending the Earth while figuring out their own teenage issues.

Joel Edgerton Talks About His Star Wars Cameo

Joel Edgerton is one of those character actors who’s been in so many movies, it’s hard to remember them all. Right now, he’s getting a well-deserved moment in the spotlight for his lead performance in Loving (in theaters now), the true story of the Virginia couple whose 1967 Supreme Court case invalidated laws against interracial marriage. But Edgerton’s first big Hollywood moment was something quite different: the decidedly not-true story of Anakin Skywalker. While promoting Loving, the Australian actor spoke to Uproxx about playing Owen Lars (future Uncle Owen to Luke Skywalker) in the Star Wars prequels Attack of the Clones (2002) and, very briefly, Revenge of the Sith (2005).

“I found out I was doing Star Wars on my birthday,” Edgerton recalled. “My brother had bought me a video player, and I thought that was pretty rad, and then I got a phone call saying I could do Star Wars. And so that was one of the greatest birthday presents that I’ve ever had.”

Alien: Covenant Poster & New Release Date

The first thing you notice about the Alien: Covenant poster that has just been put online via 20th Century Fox's Twitter feed is the slavering jaws of a xenomorph (or whatever version exists in the film). And then you might also notice that the image indicates a change for the film - it'll arrive in May next year, instead of August.


Alien: Covenant finds director Ridley Scott heading back to the Alien universe after Prometheus, and following a colony ship called the Covenant headed for a remote planet, a place that the crew initially thinks is an uncharted paradise but turns out to be dark and full of terrors. And the only inhabitant is synthetic life form David (Michael Fassbender), who claims to be the lone survivor of the Prometheus mission.

Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride make up the ship's crew, and it appears we'll catch up with Noomi Rapace's Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. Plus we'll be g…

Moana Wins Thanksgiving Box Office

Disney's very good year continued apace across the typically busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend – which for movies usually stretches from the Wednesday before the actual celebration. Moana, the company's latest animated offering, got off to a strong start at the American box office, earning $55.5 million for the weekend and $81.1 million across the period from its release on Wednesday, according to studio estimates.

That figure means Moana enters the charts as Disney's second-highest opening in the Thanksgiving period, behind just Frozen, and seems likely to have the same longevity – adding in its overseas totals, the movie is sailing towards $100 million after just a few days. With the all-powerful 'toon sweeping into the top spot, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them had to vacate its throne after just one week, but still earned a healthy $45.1 million across the three-day weekend. And Doctor Strange slipped to third with $13.3 million after four weeks in the char…

Tom Holland Joins Daisy Ridley In Chaos Walking

THR is reporting Doug Liman is on board to direct the YA post-apocalyptic thriller.

Tom Holland, who is playing Spider-Man in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, is in negotiations to join Daisy Ridley in Lionsgate’s post-apocalyptic thriller Chaos Walking.

Doug Liman is directing the project, an adaptation of the best-selling YA novel by Patrick Ness.

The story takes place in a world where all women have been killed by a germ and all living creatures can hear one another's thoughts in a stream of images, words and sounds called Noise.

Holland would star as a boy forced to flee his town with his loyal dog and who comes upon a strange sight: a girl (Ridley).

Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) worked on the script, as did Jamie Linden (Money Monster).

Doug Davison, who produced the Liman-directed Tom Cruise starrer Mena, is producing alongside Allison Shearmur (Rogue One, Cinderella).

Holland made his feature debut with the 2012 tsunami…
