A Wrinkle in Time’s script works almost as a repetitive positive affirmation for its lead character, Meg, and perhaps the audience by proxy: You are strong, You are good, You have value. Unfortunately the words don’t have the strong impact they intend in a script that mostly chooses to tell us what’s happening with our characters and their growth, rather than show.
On paper, Annihilation is everything I want from a movie. The film stars a group of female scientists and explorers – a biologist, physicist, psychologist, anthropologist, and paramedic – venturing into an unknown phenomenon dubbed “the shimmer.” Once inside the glimmering sphere that blankets a small piece of land in Florida, they reflect on the circumstances that led them each to accept the risky mission and confront the physical horrors that stalk them through the bizarre, mutated landscapes.
Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t really break the mold; instead, it’s all about the little things. It feels like Waititi was working with a bland outline for the film and character arcs, but filled in the outline with wild visuals, sharp dialogue, and some of the best casting I’ve ever seen.
Coming off of this summer’s abysmal adaptation of The Dark Tower, Stephen King fans have reason to be weary. King’s novels can be difficult to adapt to the big screen, both too sprawling and other-worldly to see play out with your standard issue director without seeming broad or cartoonish. But IT, as a project, held some promise in the early days.
Actress Danielle Panabaker, who plays Dr. Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost on The Flash, attended Dragon Con this year, where she provided a few (mostly, incredibly cryptic) clues about what’s in store for season 4 of The Flash.
After being let go by WeLoveFine, designer Catherine Elhoffer decided to go into business for herself designing fan-inspired, casual cosplay – outfits inspired by her favorite movies, comics, and television shows, but incorporated into clothing that could be worn in a causal environment. We had a chance to sit down with Elhoffer at San Diego […]
Though most of season 1 was already filmed before it aired, Executive Producer Sarah Schechter said one particular fan reaction made its way into Riverdale’s scripts and on screen: Clifford Blossom’s terrible wig. “All props to our hair department, but it did not look good. His hair was dyed in the pilot, but he had […]
The X-Men will be making an appearance on Fox this fall with the new series The Gifted – a one hour drama by Matt Nix starring Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker as the Struckers, parents of mutant children who have to take their family on the run to protect it. Though the show will be set in a distinct and separate timeline from the movies, it will still inhabit the X-Men universe and features characters like Blink (Jamie Chung), Polaris (Emma Dumont), and Thunderbird (Blair Redford).
The activations at this year’s SDCC have become more story-focused than ever, and when you’re immersed in a story from FX’s Legion, you can imagine you’re in for a pretty trippy experience. Located on the lawn of the Hilton Bayfront, the Legion Mixed Reality Experience uses HoloLens, a headset developed by Microsoft that allows for augmented reality to overlay graphics and sound on your physical environment.
If you’ve been following AMC’s Preacher, you’ve probably noticed that the show – up until now – was largely covering ground that seemed to take place before the comic. Speaking at San Diego Comic Con today, producer Seth Rogen confirmed that while season one was largely a prequel to the source material, future seasons would be delving into the comic’s content, albeit possibly taking different paths to get there.
