‘The Girl on the Train’ Trailer: The Thriller That Shocked the World

We’re so close, guys. So close to the end of summer movie season and the start of the fall, when the weather cools down and the movies start to get interesting again. I don’t know that The Girl on the Train is going to be an awards contender, but it certainly looks like a juicy thriller.

The Biggest Blockbusters of 2016 Are Also the Ones With the Best Reviews

Do critics matter? Do people actually care about film reviews? These questions are almost as old as cinema itself, and they seem to get ask anew every couple of months, whenever a critically acclaimed movie flops or a critically drubbed one becomes a massive success. At least as bigger movies go, the conventional wisdom is that critics don’t really make an impact. Backed by enormous multimillion dollar marketing budgets and huge brand awareness, the studio’s tentpole releases are often considered critic-proof. Supposedly it’s smaller, specialty releases that can benefit from (or be hurt by) film critics.

‘Mechanic: Resurrection’ Trailer: What the Hell, Jason Statham Doesn’t Fix a Single Car in This Trailer

The prototypical Jason Statham action hero is a man who can do just about anything — except shave properly. He seems to have trouble keeping his stubble under control. Other than that, though, he’s just about perfect.

New Netflix Instant Releases: July 2016

All right, Netflixers, here it is: The list of new titles coming to the streaming service this month. As far as acquisitions go, the headliner is easily The Big Short, Adam McKay’s bitterly funny comedy about the 2008 economic collapse. There’s also the recent and critically acclaimed horror movie The Invitation, billed as a “Netflix Exclusive.” (Whatever you want to call it, our own Britt Hayes was a big fan.) There are also 19 different Netflix originals (19!!!!) this month, including the return of BoJack Horseman, my favorite show that I’ve barely watched because I have a baby and BoJack Horseman is not a show you watch in front of a baby unless you want to scar her for life.

What’s Expiring From Netflix: July 2016

The sad flip side of every month’s new Netflix releases is this post, which is the list of stuff expiring on Netflix next month. On July 1 some big catalog titles vanish from the streaming service, including Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, and the first seven Star Trek movies. If you’re looking to pre-game Beyond with a marathon re-watch, you’ve only got about 9 days to do that.

Bruce Willis to Star in Eli Roth’s ‘Death Wish’ Remake

It’s been a frustrating couple of years for Bruce Willis fans. After a long and very successful career at the very top of the Hollywood Star Machine, Willis’ has slowly worked his way down into B-level fare. And B-level might be generous; a lot of his movies these days get a cursory release and then go straight to VOD, if they show up in theaters at all. Most of these movies have titles so generic they could be attached to any of these films and no one would notice. Was The Prince the one about the dystopian sci-fi with sex robots? Or was that Extraction? Or Precious Cargo? Marauders? Oh wait, it was Vice. According to IMDb, Willis is currently making a movie that really sums up this whole period of his career: The Bombing.

‘Deepwater Horizon’ Trailer Plumbs the Psychological Depths of a Terrible Disaster

I hate boats. Okay, maybe hate is strong. I just don’t like them. I’m not necessarily phobic; I’ll get on one when I have to. But given the choice between land and sea, I pick land ten times out of ten. If man was meant to hang out in the ocean, he’d have a orange and green outfit and we’d all call each other Aquaman.

‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Extended Trailer: Even More Landmarks Get Trashed

The trend in trailers right now is to make things shorter. Teasers for trailers. Vines for teasers for trailers. Even full-length trailers on YouTube now often start with a five-second tease of the trailer you are about to watch five seconds later. It’s hard to conceive of ways content can be chopped any smaller, but studios keep finding ways.

‘Batman v Superman’ Review: Titans Clash (Eventually, After Like Two Hours)

Zack Snyder makes superhero movies, but his characters don’t act very heroic. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice features all the other trappings of the superhero genre: Capes, gadgets, outlandish muscles, punching stuff. But the two stars aren’t noble or chivalrous; they’re violent, aggressive, and angry — mostly at each other instead of the bad guys. In Snyder’s formulation, protecting the world from evil isn’t a gift or a calling; it’s a burden. And that feeling is reflected in the movie itself, a burdensome 150- minute slog about two men fighting over who is in the right when both are very clearly in the wrong.
