John Wick’s Got a New Dog in ‘John Wick: Chapter Two’ Images

If there’s any recent movie that seems like an endlessly renewable resource, it’s John Wick. Just get the eternally youthful Keanu Reeves, give him some reason to be mad (in the first movie he had a dead dog to avenge), about 300 mobsters to shoot in the head, and let ’er rip for 95 minutes. Next year’s John Wick: Chapter 2 looks to continue the hitman’s saga with another journey into the dark underbelly of the assassin economy.

Viola Davis Joins Steve McQueen’s Heist Film ‘Widows’

Steve McQueen won an Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, 2013’s Best Picture, and then he pretty much vanished. He’s done a couple little things here and there, but no significant follow-up. That project finally seems to be materializing, as Variety reports that McQueen is working on a film called Widows and he’s lined up an Oscar nominee as one of his big stars: Viola Davis, she of Suicide Squad and How to Get Away With Murder and the upcoming Fences, which looks like it could be an Academy Award contender as well.

Joss Whedon quit Twitter back in 2015 after he decided that the social media platform’s pervasive negativity, anger, and outright hatred was too toxic to endure. (Where could he possibly get that idea from?) But this morning, like a phoenix or vampire slayer rising from the ashes, Whedon returned to Twitter with a new handle, and a new project: A get-out-the-vote campaign called Save the Day.

‘Sully’ Review: Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks’ Take on American Heroism

Even by the standards of a biopic about an incredibly famous man at the center of an incredibly famous real-life event there isn’t a ton of suspense in Sully. Everyone who was alive and conscious on January 15, 2009 remembers what happened that day, when Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger safely landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after the plane was struck by birds during takeoff.(I certainly do; I’d just arrived at my condo for the Sundance Film Festival and watched the rescue efforts unfold on live television.)
