Parasite Limited Series Heading To HBO

THR is reporting Parasite, one of the most acclaimed movies of 2019, is heading to HBO as a limited series. Bong Joon Ho , who wrote and directed the Palme d’Or winner and Oscar hopeful, is teaming with Adam McKay, whose recent work The Big Short and Vice earned him multiple award nominations and whose HBO drama, Succession, just took home the Golden Globe for best drama series. Deals are not done, but talks are underway with HBO, which came out on top following a fierce bidding war with Netflix for the rights. Parasite followed the poor but cunning Kim family as they ingratiated themselves into the lives of their wealthy employers, the Park family. The relationship between the two clans went through several twists and ultimately ended up having deadly consequences. It is unclear if the limited series will be some sort of follow-up to the movie or an English-language remake. The Korean film, seen as a take on class warfare as well as a genre thriller, has earned more than

Could Adam McKay Direct Guardians Of The Galaxy 3?

We'll start here by saying this is far from a done deal and more just about conversations that Adam McKay has been having lately. But speaking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast , on the occasion of his excellent Dick Cheney biopic Vice's release, McKay revealed that he's been having ongoing discussions with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios about possible projects for some time, and that the third Guardians Of The Galaxy might be something he'd find difficult to turn down. Specifically, McKay says the character of Nova), head of intergalactic police force the Nova Corps, is one he'd be particularly interested in working with, and one that's likely to introduced in Guardians Vol. 3 (news already confirmed by Feige). McKay's relationship with Marvel Studios dates back to the original Ant-Man. After Edgar Wright's departure from that film, he declined an offer to direct it himself (because of his friendship with Wright), but did help with the re-write

Movie Review: #TheLEGOBatmanMovie

The Dark Knight tackles his feelings for The Joker in the fun but flawed The LEGO Batman Movie . Review by Matt Cummings If you were like me, 2014's The LEGO Movie was not only hilarious but a breath of fresh air. It took the now-crowded (and somewhat predictable) animated landscape and turned it on its ear, by taking the genre through the Fourth Wall with memorable results. And while The LEGO Batman Movie is fun and quite good, it's clearly not on the same level with the original. But is that demotion enough of a reason not to see it? Billionaire Bruce Wayne and his doppelganger Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) revel in the life each has created for themselves. For the Caped Crusader, it's once again capturing the notorious Joker (Zach Galifianakis), all while Gotham City celebrates Batman's greatness. For Wayne, life is about parties and acquisitions until he meets the new chief of police Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson), who suggests that Batman's

Movie Review: 'The Big Short'

The 2007 housing crisis is viscerally played out in this bittersweet, memorizing, and terrific ensemble piece. Review by Matt Cummings As a person intimately aware of the 2007 housing crisis, the story behind The Big Short has served as a narrative for too many of my friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Lured by the promise of cheap money that could be refinanced in a over-priced housing market, many lost their homes when the rates became too high and home values began to plunge. The ensemble drama/comedy The Big Short analyzes both the back and front end of the crisis, hoping to finally get people interested in a topic that still demands our full attention. Set in the years leading up to the 2007 housing crisis, The Big Short follows three stories of investors trying to make money for their clients. The housing market has boomed, allowing literally everyone the chance to own a home. As a result, those who have sought to open the doors to de-regulation have made trem

Movie Review: Get Hard

The comedy Get Hard merely survives and never elevates into something new. Review by Matt Cummings In the raunchy comedy Get Hard , James (Will Ferrell) is a successful hedge fund manager whose slick deals and sixth sense about the market sees him making money hand-over-fist for his boss (Craig T. Nelson), whose gold-digging daughter (Brie Larson) is really in it for the money. Meanwhile, Darrell (Kevin Hart) is struggling to get his car wash business to the next level, while his family dreams of a better life in an upscale neighborhood. That isn't going to happen unless Darrell can post a $30,000 deposit which he hopes James can help him secure. But when James becomes the scapegoat for securities fraud, he turns to Darrell to him help prepare for prison life. Even though Darrell is black, he's no hardened criminal, but takes the offer with the promise of getting his money. Through a series of misadventures, the duo tries desperately to relate to one another, be

Take A Closer Look At Yellowjacket From Ant-Man

Cross is the main challenge for Lang and Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym, since he also has access to the “Pym Particles” that can shrink matter and has crafted a more dangerous version of the Ant-Man suit for his own nefarious ends. Check out the violence-promising bladed arms, with Cross taking a leaf from Doctor Octopus’s book (even if he’ll never acknowledge him, what with Doc appearing in a different studio’s franchise.) It’s interesting to call Cross a Big Bad since he’ll spend some of the time as tiny as our hero, but he’s certainly a wrong ‘un.
