Harley Quinn Movie Possibility Brings Another Female Lead

The Hollywood Reporter yesterday broke the news that “months ahead of the opening of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. is already contemplating a spinoff for the DC Entertainment anti-heroine, Harley Quinn.” Margot Robbie plays the crazy character, and she will produce the proposed film as well. She discovered how great DC’s female characters are while researching her role, and she developed the project and brought it to Warners. Harley’s sense of weird and wacky flippancy fits right in with the attitude […]

Thoughts on the X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer

X-Men: Apocalypse will be in theaters two weeks from tomorrow, as Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer movie-going season. It follows X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the alliances and leadership has changed. This time, it’s Raven (Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence) leading a group of young X-Men “with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy)… to stop Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and the Four Horseman.” The reviews so far… haven’t been good. Since they don’t hold press screenings in my […]

Captain America: Civil War Movie Theater Shops

For years, people have been suggesting that there’s an opportunity to sell more items to fans of superhero films in movie theaters. Finally, someone’s taking up the idea — but it’s not comic books they’ll be selling. Marvel has announced that The Araca Group, “a renowned live entertainment merchandising company”, will be operating pop-up shops in 88 movie theater lobbies in conjunction with the release of Captain America: Civil War on May 6. They’ll sell 11 different products, including limited […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Releases Trailer

I can’t think of a better match for a movie based on the odd novel about a group of children with exceptional abilities than Tim Burton. On one level, the movie of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children could be looked at as a kind of superhero story (since they, like the X-Men, are unusual but want to be left in peace), but the tradition is so much older. It’s a fantasy adventure involving wonders and mysteries and the chance […]

Is the Good Dinosaur a Bad Pixar Movie?

Pixar’s been on a roll for a long time, making some of the best ever animated films about meaningful subjects. Inside Out, newly out on home video, even managed to dramatize pre-adolescent emotions in an entertaining way. However, their latest, The Good Dinosaur, in theaters now, may break their streak. Cars 2 was previously poorly reviewed, but The Good Dinosaur is the only one that sounds boring. It was delayed a year and a half from the original release date, […]

Watch Miracle of Morgan’s Creek, Other Paramount Classics, on YouTube

Thanks to cinematically insane, I found out that the Paramount Vault is now a thing. Paramount Pictures has put a number of their movies on YouTube in full for free (with some ads). These include 91 full-length feature films originally released between 1941 and 2014, which makes for quite the range. You can catch action films, 60s dramas, and a couple of my favorite comedies. If you’ve never seen The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek, you’re in for a treat! It’s […]

The 1999 animated classic The Iron Giant, directed by Brad Bird and with Vin Diesel as the robot, will be back in theaters on September 30 and October 4.
