It’s a big year for Nicole Kidmaniacs (just something I’m trying out), and Big Little Lies was just the opening act. The actress has four projects screening at Cannes this year: Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled, the second season of Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake, Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer and How to Talk to Girls at Parties. You’ll have a Nicole Kidman for every occasion, but perhaps none cooler than the one featured in John Cameron Mitchell’s adaptation of the Neil Gaiman short story. As you can see in the first teaser, Kidman’s about to get real rowdy y’all.
They’re not called face-huggers for nothin’. That’s a lesson Demian Bichir learns the hard way in the latest clip from Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, which introduces a whole new unlucky crew of space-travelers who swiftly become a bloody buffet for the iconic xenomorphs and their various mutations. Judging by all the clips and trailers we’ve seen so far, it doesn’t look like most of these people are making it off that planet alive, but it wouldn’t be an Alien movie if almost everyone wasn’t gruesomely murdered by a xenomorph.
If you’re a huge Stephen King fan (like me!), then you undoubtedly noticed two fairly huge easter eggs in the first trailer for The Dark Tower, which finally — after months of anticipation and growing concern — debuted online early this morning. Those less familiar with the SKU (the Stephen King Universe) may have missed the pair of references to two of King’s most iconic stories, both of which have also been adapted before.
In the second act of The Circle (a film so poorly structured that it feels like it has five acts instead of three), Emma Watson’s painfully earnest protagonist Mae Holland decides to go “transparent” and have her entire life live-streamed around the clock, save for the occasional three-minute bathroom break. Throughout these sequences, CGI text boxes appear on screen to display viewer comments in “real-time,” with half-baked thoughts ranging from “I just ate cheese from last year” to “My girlfriend dumped me.” Those comments, often irrelevant and ineloquent, are the only part of The Circle that feels remotely relevant or clever…or entertaining. The rest, like the titular shape, is hollow.
New Line’s next spinoff from The Conjuring franchise is keeping things in the family — at least on the real-world side of things. Taissa Farmiga, sister of Conjuring star Vera Farmiga, is set to star in The Nun, based on the terrifying ghoul featured in James Wan’s sequel to his blockbuster horror hit. Little is known about the upcoming spinoff, though it seems unlikely that Farmiga’s role will be related to her sister’s fictional take on famous paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren.
You know the drill: Every month, Netflix Instant delivers a glorious bounty of new titles for us to stream until we can’t feel our butts anymore. But just as Netflix giveth, so must they taketh away, and with each new month comes a list of movies and TV shows that are set to expire from the streaming service — some temporarily, some perhaps forever. Think of it as your monthly reminder to stop procrastinating with that bloated queue of yours.
The ratio of Netflix Originals to acquired content continues to skew more toward the former each month, and May is absolutely stacked with fresh original films, comedy specials and TV shows — including new season premieres of some of our favorite series, like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Master of None (finally!), Sense8, Bloodline, House of Cards and more. As for original films, next month’s additions include War Machine, along with specials from beloved comedians like Marie Bamford and Tracy Morgan.
“We all float down here.” That’s what the evil entity, disguised as a sinister clown named Pennywise, says to little Georgie Denbrough before he lures the kid into a rain gutter in the opening of Stephen King’s classic horror novel, It. That terrifying moment has been reimagined in an eerie teaser poster for the highly-anticipated new movie adaptation of King’s story, boasting a tagline that feels like more of a promise than a threat.
As far as most audiences were concerned, Assassin’s Creed didn’t exactly build a strong case for continuing to make movies based on video games (I’m in the minority on that one), a pursuit that has proven consistently disappointing over the last few decades despite occasional box-office success. But maybe things will finally change with the release of Tomb Raider, in which Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander takes on the iconic role of video game hero Lara Croft. She certainly looks the part in the first photos from the film, which hits theaters next year.
After a somewhat tumultuous development stage, the new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel It is finally heading to the big screen in September, courtesy of Mama director Andy Muschietti. While we wait for the first trailer (which may be arriving sooner than you think), a new photo of Pennywise the clown has debuted online, giving us another look at the iconic villain in a scene that fans of King’s novel and the original miniseries adaptation will immediately recognize.
