Kristen Stewart joins Kelly Reichardt's new project

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson should no longer be referred to as "Twilight stars", as they've both stolen the show in multiple movies since then (see Clouds of Sils Maria and The Rover). Now Stewart has been cast in Ke...

Box Office Numbers: Gettin' Focused Wit It

It's a shame that no matter how many films Will Smith is in, I'll always reference Gettin Jiggy Wit It. Seeing as Focus was alright, and secured the top spot at the box office with $19 million, maybe I'll let it go? Uhhhhh...na na na na na na na.  Hit the jump for the box office performances for the February 27-March 1 weekend. [via Rentrak]

Review: Focus

I love a good con movie. From The Sting to Ocean’s Eleven to Catch Me If You Can, the genre is as formulaic as it is entertaining. The secret to its success is a combination of familiar warmth and detached unpredictab...

RIP Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

Earlier today, news broke that Leonard Nimoy had passed away at the age of 83.  It's hard to put into words the personal importance of Nimoy's work. Star Trek wasn't just the show I watched as a child, it was my ins...

Rocky spin-off Creed gets a sad synopsis

It took me years, YEARS, to get over Rocky Balboa. When the three decade long Rocky saga finally came to end, it was a good end but I still wanted much more. The Rocky films mean so much to me (so much that I wrote my undergr...

First look at Bautista in Spectre

As we quickly approach the fall release of Spectre, hype for James Bond's 24th outing is fast reaching a fever pitch. 2012's Skyfall righted the ship after the disappointing 2008 outing Quantum of Solace, and fans have been w...

New Fantastic Four images are...pretty ordinary

I don't have a lot to say about the new Fantastic Four pictures from Empire. They exist, they're boring, whatever. I'd like to take this time, instead, to make a formal apology to Josh Trank and the rest of the cast and crew ...

Check out this awesome Birdman toy commercial

There's not really much to say other than this is a neat little ditty promoting Birdman's victory lap through some theaters after taking home the Best Picture Oscar. But it's just really, really neat. If you haven't yet, you should watch Big Birdman too.  "Smells like balls."

Rob Schrab to direct the Lego Movie sequel

As awesome as everything was in The Lego Movie, it is possible the sequel will be even more... awesome (*bursts into singing "Everything is awesome").  I was initially not sold on the idea to make a second Lego Movie, bu...

6 things we want from Neill Blomkamp's Alien project photo
6 things we want from Neill Blomkamp's Alien project
by Per Morten Mjolkeraaen

We've all wanted to make a movie at some point. We've all thought it through in our minds, from story to characters to the final act that would shock audiences around the world. Our own personal dream movie. A movie we would love to see, but never will. 

As it turns out, well-known science-fiction directors are humans as well, because Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, and the upcoming Chappie) took to Instagram a few weeks back to upload a set of conceptual drawings of a Alien movie he wanted to make. The only difference between Blomkamp and you (and me) is the fact that Fox took notice and now he's getting to direct it. 

So, as Blomkamp Instagrams his way into the director's chair of a new Alien movie, we sit back in our worn-out sofa to type a few words about the things we want from this project.

Flix for Short: Power/Rangers, a super gritty MMPR fan film
