Mile 22 Review 'Just didn’t stick the landing'

Black Widow Film Finally In The Works

After years of talking about the idea, Marvel has seemingly been no nearer to making an actual stand-alone Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff. Now there actually is some forward motion, as writer Jac Schaeffer has been hired to work on the script.

Bear in mind that this is not an official plan to put the film into production, but it's certainly a positive step forward for a film that has been mooted as far back as the character's first appearance in Iron Man 2. According to Variety, Marvel studio boss Kevin Feige met various candidates and decided that Schaeffer was the best person for the job, with Johansson having input into the search.

Schaeffer wrote and directed the delightful sci-fi indie movie Timer in 2009, and has more recently been winning praise for alien invasion comedy The Shower, which is still in development. Anne Hathaway hopped aboard that planned movie, and enjoyed Schaffer's work so much that she had her write Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake Nasty Women, which will be out this year. Schaffer also worked on the script for Olaf's Frozen Adventure.

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

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…

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…
