‘Rest Stop’ Movie, Based on a Stephen King Story, Will Be Directed by Alex Ross Perry Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry wants in on the ongoing Stephen King adaptation boom. The filmmaker will write and direct Rest Stop, based on a King story of the same name. King’s tale follows a mystery writer who intervenes in an act of domestic violence unfolding at a rest stop. The story is very brief, and even a bit anticlimactic, so you can expect Perry to take some liberties with his adaptation. Alex Ross Perry has had a bit of an odd career, jumping from under-the-radar indie titles like Queen of Earth, to big Disney movies like Christopher Robin.

Tessa Thompson says a Taika Waititi-directed Thor 4 has been pitched After my own rewatch of the MCU films in prep for ENDGAME I can see why most people (including star Chris Hemsworth) don’t think the first two THOR movies made the God of Thunder the strongest character in the series – when it comes to development that is. With THOR: RAGNAROK he was certainly bumped up a few ranks though, as director Taika Waititi unlocked in the… Read More...

Netflix has become such an integral part of our entertainment livelihood that most subscribers don’t even care when the streaming subscription service raises their prices a little bit. Thankfully, they’re finally coming around to giving their users new ways to find programs to watch, as well as making it easier for them to pick something to watch on a Saturday night. After years of Netflix customers asking for the ability to choose something to watch at random, the streaming service may finally come through.

"Is it true what Desi said - that you're an evil man?" A24 has debuted an official trailer for an indie feature titled Skin, the next feature-length film from Israeli director Guy Nattiv.

In need of creative inspiration, a professionally stagnant and hard-partying Los Angeles artist recklessly indulges in a series of drug binges. As the narcotics fly out of control, so does her newfound and inexplicable, yet unquenchable, craving for blood.

Clint Eastwood Might Direct That Olympics Bombing Movie After All In the wake of The Wolf of Wall Street, actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill planned to quickly re-team for a movie called The Ballad of Richard Jewell, the true story of a man who discovered a bomb at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia and then was falsely vilified as a suspect in the crime. Over the next several years, directors like Paul Greengrass (Jason Bourne), Ezra Edelman (O.J.: Made in America), and Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven) came and went as potential directors, but now Eastwood has circled back around and is looking to make it his next directing project.

A24 Like Jordan Peele’s Us, Under the Silver Lake is an acclaimed writer/director’s follow up to his breakout horror hit, in this case Robert David Mitchell’s first effort after 2014’s It Follows. Like Peele’s Us, Mitchell’s Under The Silver Lake (named for the hip, or formerly hip, east side artsy neighborhood of LA) is more genre, more classical filmmaking technique, less easily parsed than its predecessor.

Last year, director Ari Aster arrived with his dread-inducing debut feature, Hereditary. The film received wide acclaim and showcased the enormous talent of star Toni Collette in a story that balances occult horror with family trauma. Steadily riding its success, Aster returns to theaters this summer with his sophomore picture, Midsommar. Centered on a couple who attends a festival that occurs once every 90 years, the film appears to be the aesthetic antithesis of his first feature but still evokes the same terror-laden atmosphere.

Titled Woodstock: Three Days That Defined a Generation, the feature-length doc film is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival first, then will play in select theaters before airing on TV through PBS.

Update: MoviePass has released a statement claiming that the numbers from Business Insider’s reports are false and that its parent company has not released any subscriber numbers. For some strange reason, MoviePass has dropped 90% of its subscribers in less than a year. Weird, right? What mysterious explanation could there be for this massive decrease in subscriptions? I’m joking, of course. We all know the answer: the movie-ticket-subscription service imploded after leaking money like a siv.

While DUMBO didn't quite soar at the box office, none of that will matter when Disney unleashes THE LION KING into the world and it makes enough money to justify a dozen flops.

Apple’s Foundation TV series has lost one of its showrunners. Co-showrunner Josh Friedman has exited the upcoming series adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s groundbreaking sci-fi novels, leaving co-writer David S. Goyer as the sole showrunner of this ambitious, long-awaited project. The Wrap reports that Friedman has stepped down from the day-to-day responsibility of acting as a Foundation TV series showrunner, but will remain attached as an executive producer. That leaves David S.

Just like director David F. Sandberg, editor Michel Aller came into Shazam! from the horror genre. But as odd a transition as that may seem, going from editing films like The Nun and Annabelle: Creation to editing this year’s most joyful superhero movie was pretty seamless for Aller. “The approach doesn’t differ that much, it’s mainly the content,” Aller told /Film in a phone interview.

Contemporary social realism films from the USA, like much of social realism cinema in general, focuses on the lives of the poor and marginalized, and often involve the potential loss of a home or need for extra money for medical bills (the latter being sadly a problem relegated to the USA). These parts of America, often referred to as 'fly-over states', have suffered most from the loss of jobs and inadequate assistance, leaving most people living on the verifiable edge, and often turning to crime to maintain the most bare of existences.

"He kept saying: 'I want to dress everybody in America.'" The Orchard has released an official trailer for a fascinating indie documentary titled Halston, from director Frédéric Tcheng (of Dior and I previously).

The film tells the story of the "prodigiously talented" fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick, known simply as just Halston, who reigned over fashion in the 1970s and became a household name. But everything changed in the Wall Street era.
