THE BFG

‘The BFG’ Review: A Sleepy Stumble From Steven Spielberg

The BFG — or “Big Friendly Giant” — spends his days in Giant Country, collecting dreams from a magical tree and distributing them to the people of the world. He seems like just the sort of character who would appeal to Steven Spielberg, a big friendly giant of the film world whose work has stimulated the imaginations of millions of moviegoers. But Spielberg doesn’t fully communicate that appeal with his film version of The BFG, which contains a fair amount of lovely images but may be the director’s most listless and dramatically inert movie in decades.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Is No Match For ‘Finding Dory’

It took 20 years for Roland Emmerich to deliver a sequel to Independence Day, a film that’s largely responsible for the modern summer blockbuster season. Unfortunately, it looks like most audiences didn’t think it was worth the wait. As predicted in recent weeks, Resurgence crash-landed in theaters with an underwhelming opening weekend that was no match for Pixar’s Finding Dory.

The Rock Cooks Up a Trailer For His YouTube Channel

Not content to dominate the world through both Instagram and Twitter (and movies and television shows and wrestling guest appearances and talk show appearances and pretty much everything else), Dwayne Johnson has announced plans to launch his own YouTube channel on July 18 of this year. If the above video is to be believed, Johnson’s inner monologue is also the staging ground of an epic YA adventure movie. Sounds good to us.

Kellan Lutz Could Be He-Man in McG’s ‘Masters of the Universe’

If you did not know that Sony Pictures is working towards the production of a brand new He-Man movie, then you obviously are not one of the 462 supporters of the Change.org petition to have a new Masters of the Universe movie be put into production. The petition also (very helpfully) provides a suggested release date of 2017 or 2018, though I’m sure that the audience would gladly push that back for the right story.

‘Free State of Jones’ Review: The ‘All Lives Matter’ Civil War Movie You Didn’t Ask For

Watching ‘Free State of Jones’ transported me back in time, but not back to the Civil War era. The 139 minute war drama took me back to high school on the days when my U.S. History teacher would play a historical movie, like 1986's Glory, in place of a lesson plan. But if any teacher is looking to add a movie to their syllabus, it shouldn’t be Gary Ross’ ‘Free State of Jones.’

If You Want to Make a ‘Star Trek’ Fan Film and Don’t Want to Get Sued by Paramount, These Are the Rules

Just a few months ago, a Star Trek fan film made headlines in a way no one wants their fan film to make headlines: As the target of a lawsuit. Paramount sued the producers of Prelude to Axanar, a Trek fan movie that had raised over $500,000 on Indiegogo, claiming it was infringing on their many of their copyrights. They were almost certainly correct, but the story got a lot of attention, as stories about big conglomerates suing the pants off poor individuals often do.

Dwayne Johnson to Produce ‘Son of Shaolin’ Graphic Novel Adaptation

Dwayne Johnson is a real-life superhero: Seemingly immortal, immune to exhaustion, able to leap tall franchises in a single bound. Johnson’s plate seems pretty full right now, but he’s just added another big project to his increasingly crowded schedule, and although he’s not officially attached to star in this new graphic novel adaptation just yet, it’s probably only a matter of time before he is — not that Johnson is beholden to time as we mere mortals know it.

‘Keeping Up With the Joneses’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis Spies on Super Spy Jon Hamm

The first trailer for Keeping Up With the Joneses hits some predictable comedic beats, but with a cast that includes Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot, how can this one not go on your must-see list? Directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad), the new action comedy pits one of the world’s funniest men against one of the handsomest in a film that looks like a throwback to stuff like Stakeout — remember Stakeout? You had cable in the ’90s, right?
