‘The Bad Batch’ Teaser: Keanu Reeves Lords Over a Dystopian Desert

You might know director Ana Lily Amirpour from her fantastic debut A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. A feminist vampire movie that turned the genre on its head, it felt refreshingly sinister, and put Amirpour’s name on the map. Her second movie, The Bad Batch, premiered at TIFF last year and will finally get a release this summer.

Bill Murray Could’ve Had Jack Nicholson’s Role in the ‘Toni Erdmann’ Remake

Over the weekend I had dinner with some friends (yeah, I don’t live in the internet; crazy, right?) and the topic of the Toni Erdmann remake came up, which led to brainstorming which writers and directors might be perfect for taking on a three-hour German father-daughter relationship comedy (Sarah Polley) — and which ones will likely wind up with the job (someone like Larry Charles or Paul Feig, I bet). And while Jack Nicholson emerging from retirement is super exciting, one friend suggested that, since the film doesn’t even have a script or director yet, Nicholson will back out at the last minute and the role will go to Bill Murray. As it turns out, what really happened was sort of the reverse.

The Worst ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!

Across the Pond, ‘La La Land’ Continues Awards Season Sweep at BAFTAs

Cheerio, and cor blimey! The BAFTAs, Britain’s most prestigious film awards program, took place last night in London and recognized the finest achievements of the year on the silver screen.

With a little less than two weeks to go before Oscar night, Damien Chazelle’s crowd-pleasing musical picked up a few more accolades to pad its portfolio and brighten its chances for the big dance.

Scarlett Johansson Won’t Be Controlled in Latest ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Trailer

The government is not to be trusted, not at present and certainly not in the trippy future Japan of Ghost in the Shell. Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) has been led to believe that she endured some manner of terrible accident in life, and the police department salvaged her body by augmenting it with cybernetic implants. In exchange for a second chance at consciousness, all she has to do is devote herself to fearlessly cleaning the street of crime and to surrender what’s left of her free will; naturally, she has some doubts about this. And when she meets an enigmatic stranger warning her that all is not what it seems, her whole understanding of who the bad guys are starts to shift.

‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Reveals Plot Details, Full Cast as Production Begins

After months of rumormongering and speculating and debating over whether Lin-Manuel Miranda has what it takes to make the jump to the big screen from Broadway, sequel Mary Poppins Returns has finally begun shooting. Disney sent out an official press release yesterday announcing that the production was officially underway at Shepperton Studios in Burbank, California, with a project release date of Christmas Day in 2018. (Nothing gets people in the mood for a movie-musical quite like the holidays, it would seem, as director Rob Marshall’s last film Into the Woods found a release date in late December as well.) And along with the news that the gears are now turning, the press release provided a full cast list and more comprehensive description of the plot as well.

The Live-Action ‘Aladdin’ Will Have a Diverse Cast, Promises Producer

There’s been a lot of talk about whitewashing in the news lately, what with two big blockbusters, The Great Wall and the live-action Ghost in the Shell, poised to hit theaters soon. Disney has plans for both a live-action Mulan and Aladdin in the works, and the production of both will be scrutinized for how they handle casting. But not to worry, because the producer of Aladdin says the cast will be fittingly diverse for a movie set in the Middle East.

John Carpenter Casually Announces a New ‘Halloween’ in 2018, Time to Freak Out

No, this is not a drill. Paramount shelving the new Friday the 13th so soon before production was supposed to begin came as a somewhat sudden disappointment, but, to paraphrase Julie Andrews, when Hollywood closes a door, somewhere they open a window. As it turns out, that window is a Halloween reboot, which already has a director, a screenwriter, a studio, a release date, and, quite possibly, a score from the horror master himself, John Carpenter.
