Captain Marvel VFX supervisors on de-aging the ageless Samuel L. Jackson Samuel L. Jackson is 70 years old, and the dude looks damn good for his age, but even Jackson wasn't safe from one of Marvel's distinctive digital makeovers. As the recent CAPTAIN MARVEL takes place in 1995, it was necessary for the actor to look 25 years younger than the Nick Fury we've come to know. Marvel Studios is certainly no stranger to the de-aging… Read More...

‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Review: You’d Weep, Too, If This Was Your Movie [SXSW] The Curse of La Llorona opens in Mexico in 1673, as we meet the weeping woman of the title in her, shall we say, better days. The film introduces us to the Latin American legend, in which a scorned woman drowns her children in a river and then becomes overtaken by grief and guilt. It’s an affecting way to begin a movie. It’s also the last time The Curse of La Llorona works on almost any level. We jump forward 300 years to Los Angeles in 1973, and you might be asking yourself why this movie is set in the ’70s.

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2’ Trailer: Being Wicked Never Felt So Good Just like magic, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is back in no time at all with its second season.

Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka), who has fully embraced the wicked side of herself and is exploring her identity and relationship with Satan — as well as her romantic relationships with poor ex-boyfriend Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) and warlock Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood).

Rupert Wyatt on why he exited Showtime's Halo TV series It's getting dangerously close to twenty years since the first Halo game was released back in 2001. Now that I've said that out loud, I feel damn old.

Maisie Williams’ ‘The New Mutants’ X Men Movie May Wind Up On Streaming Rather Than In Theaters Fox Back in the day — as in about two years ago — it was still considered an insult for a movie to not play actual movie theaters. Now it’s the new normal. On the same weekend that a new Ben Affleck-Oscar Isaac action movie bowed on Netflix, it was discovered that The New Mutants — the long-shelved and currently being reworked X-Men spin-off, which was originally due last year — might also skip theaters entirely, becoming one of those films you first see on a whim while preparing dinner or folding clothes. The news was buried in a lengthy Vanity Fair piece and teased out by Hot New Hip Hop.
