How To Build A Girl is a new fantastical coming of age dramedy starring Beanie Feldstein. She stars as a girl trying to break into music journalism by creating a new persona. This movie is based on the novel of the same name by Caitlyn Moran. Feldstein is having a bit of a breakout moment […]
Dolittle is coming very soon, in January to be exact. Eight new character posters were revealed for the Robert Downey Jr. version of the doctor. If nothing else these posters prove that the film has quite the impressive voice cast. Craig Robinson, Marion Cotillard, Selena Gomez, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Tom Holland, Rami Malek, Ralph […]
BBC One and HBO's Years and Years is Russell T. Davies' unique reimagining of the British family drama with a Science Fiction edge – yet still firmly grounded in the issues of today. It takes the UK through the years from 2019 all the way to 2034 through the eyes of a single family, the […]
I rather enjoyed former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies' new sci-fi drama, "Years And Years", which finished last night on the BBC. Telling the story of the decade to come, in a post-Brexit, two-term-Donald-Trump-with-Mike-Pence-to-follow world, with the rise of a populist Northern politician played by Emma Thompson and a family trying to survive it, […]
Dame Emma Thompson is not someone who hides her opinions behind formality. Let's recall the 2014 Golden Globes when the actress took the stage holding a martini (with olives) in one hand and her Louboutins in the other in a spectacular display of not giving a frak. That's not to say she DOESN'T care about […]
We stan a Queen. When it was announced that disgraced Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter would be joining Skydance as head of their animation department, there was a good chance that no one thought it was going to be a big deal. Yes, there was some press blowback and people weren't happy about it, […]
This Men in Black thing is one of those few "reboot" times where we're honestly curious to see what the end result is. Already sporting a starring cast of Chris Hemsworth AND Tessa Thompson, and they've just added three more big names to the flick. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liam Neeson and Oscar-nominated Kumail Nanjiani have signed on to join […]
Somehow, we're getting a new Doctor Dolittle film. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle film will be based on author Hugh Lofting's second Doctor Dolittle book which was published in 1922 (it's worth noting the second entry was almost twice as long as the first). Universal Pictures won the rights to the project last year, after some hot bidding […]
I was rather surprised just how irresistible Saving Mr. Banks proved to be. The cast are splendid, the production design and cinematography are polished and unobtrusive, but the two real stars of the show are Kelly Marcel, the screenwriter, and Mary Poppins, the feature film. This featurette… says very little about either of these things. […]
This poster sells us the idea that Disney casts Mickey as his shadow, Travers casts Mary Poppins as hers. It's not as clean a notion as you might think.
Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as PL Travers, the creator of Mary Poppins, in this new film from director John Lee Hancock.
We've seen on-set pap snaps and sneaks from inside the soundstages, but this seems to be the first official promotional image from the making-of-Mary Poppins movie.
Emma Thompson gets to drop the exposition bomb in this first trailer for Men In Black 3, and what she doesn't cover gets dealt with by the captions. The time jump was custom built for maximum 3D silliness. Jolly japes. And what fun we'll have being poked in the eye by the top of Chrysler […]
Ahead of the new trailer for Pixar's Brave, which will be released tomorrow, there's a preview piece and new image online. The picture could be bigger and clearer, and I'll have to update if I find a better version, but here's what we have now: So that's Queen Elinor, King Fergus, Princess Merida and triplet […]
Once upon a time, Pixar's Brave, formerly The Bear and the Bow, was set for release in late 2011. For whatever reason, this has now been delayed until the summer of 2012. Torture. Brenda Chapman's film will be both the first Pixar film to have a woman in charge behind the scenes, and also to […]
