The Marvel Cinematic Universe began assembling with Jon Favreau's "Iron Man" in 2008. When "Avengers: Infinity War" hit theaters in 2018, it marked the beginning of the end of the franchise's first epic story arc, known as the Infinity Saga. In that film from Anthony and Joe Russo, True Believers were treated to a number of excellent team-ups featuring Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Every Main Character In Wednesday Ranked Worst To Best Wednesday Addams returns to the screen for the first live-action adaptation since the 1998 straight-to-video feature "Addams Family Reunion." In very capable hands, "Wednesday" arrives with raven's wings on Netflix and sees cinematic visionary Tim Burton returning to the director's chair. With a body of work that includes "Beetlejuice," "Edward Scissorhands," and "Corpse Bride," Burton has the pedigree to tackle the beloved franchise. Cartoonist Charles Addams' creepy clan first appeared in the pages of The New Yorker in 1938.

Major spoilers ahead for "Andor" season 1."Andor" has finished its first season on Disney+, and it's quite unlike any Star Wars series we've seen so far. We've followed "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) as he is radicalized (with very good reason) into the rebel we first met in the film. In 12 episodes, we've seen him change, grow, and get angry about the way the Imperial forces are treating the galaxy.

Most actors are no strangers to the idea of the characters they play undergoing some sort of identity crisis. Chris Hemsworth knows all about that, having portrayed the Marvel superhero Thor during his most drastic on-screen transformation yet: the "Dude"-inspired deadbeat from "Avengers: Endgame." But, on the other hand, every performer's worst nightmare rears its ugly head when they themselves can't quite get a handle on the intricacies of the individual they're meant to play.

"Andor" just wrapped up so it's only fitting that "Rogue One" screenwriter Gary Whitta took the opportunity to reveal the rather cool "Star Wars" television show he cooked up with his "Rogue One" co-writer Chris Weitz. His pitch was to set a show between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens" that would see the successful Rebel Alliance putting together a Mossad-style team to hunt down Imperial war criminals.

"If you want to live here, you have to ride." "Let's do it!" 20th Century Studios has released the final official trailer for James Cameron's highly anticipated sci-fi sequel Avatar: The Way of Water, also known as just Avatar 2. Less than a month until this is in theaters worldwide!! Who's ready?? Following the events of the first movie, Jake Sully now lives with his newfound family formed on the planet of Pandora. Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was started, Jake must work with Neytiri and another new army of the Na'vi race to protect their planet.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" series often feels like the neglected middle child of the Spider-Man film eras (of Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland, respectively), but the pair of films from director Marc Webb are back in the news almost a decade later as Joe Jonas -- of The Jonas Brothers, DNCE, and the recently released "Devotion" fame -- told Variety that he auditioned for the role of Peter Parker in that particular reboot. Jonas got his start as part of the Disney tween machine through his family band and subsequent appearances in Disney Channel Original Movies like "Camp Rock," bu

Spoilers for "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" follow."Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" featured the return of many beloved characters, and though there's no replacing the tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman, the film did an incredible job of honoring his legacy. It's a powerful meditation on grief, but there is plenty of joy to be found in the movie as well.

Finally, someone understands the glory of "Barbie" on more than just a superficial level. Since the announcement of Greta Gerwig's "Barbie" starring Margot Robbie, most of the talk has been centered on the unbelievably stacked cast, the pitch-perfect fashion design, Ryan Gosling's bleach blonde hair, and the cast sleepover that kicked off production. This is Barbie's world and we're all just impatiently waiting for any and every update living in it.

The 2022 /Film Holiday Gift Guide should have you stocked up on shopping idea for movies, TV shows, and books. But those aren't the only items that pop culture fanatics are hoarding these days. Vinyl albums have become all the rage again, and that includes bringing the rich sounds of films and TV shows to your ears. Whether they're soundtracks from the latest movies, beloved favorites from yesteryear, or cult classics, we've got a collection of vinyl soundtracks that are ready to spin.

Sometimes it seems like the entirety of "Chucky" season 2 was just one, giant, collective hallucination by the fans. The season kicked off with a Halloween special, threw the main tweens into Catholic school for some fun (with a weirdly hot priest played by Devon Sawa), and gave Jennifer Tilly a "Bound" reunion/solo episode that allowed her to remind the world why she's an Academy Award-nominated performer.

Strange World Directors Wanted The Movie To Be More Like The Matrix Than Men In Black [Exclusive] Warning: Major spoilers ahead for "Strange World."In the new Disney Animation film, "Strange World," the Clade family lives in a land nestled in the center of a mountain range. The mountains are unpassable ... not that Jaeger Clade (voiced by Dennis Quaid) believes that. He and a group of explorers set off to try to find out what's on the other side of the range, but when his son Searcher (voiced by Jake Gyllenhaal) finds a plant that can bring electricity to the land, he and the rest of the group turn back.

Steven Spielberg's The Fabelmans Hits Close To Home This will contain spoilers for "The Fabelmans"At the start of "The Fabelmans," young Sammy Fabelman goes to his first motion picture — "The Greatest Show on Earth" — and dreams of the epic train crash he saw on the screen. He wants so badly to recreate this celluloid nightmare that he films it over and over again with his model train set and his dad's 8mm camera.

It's remarkable how often seemingly ancient history becomes relevant again in our modern day -- sometimes tragically so. Such is the case in director J.D. Dillard's newest movie, "Devotion." The movie focuses on the Korean War of the early 1950s, telling the harrowing true story of two elite U.S. Navy fighter pilots. Specifically, the movie shines a light on Jesse Brown, played by Jonathan Majors ("Lovecraft Country"), who became the first Black aviator to ever complete the U.S.

Review: BONES AND ALL, Young Cannibals in Love Timothée Chalamet reunites with his Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino for another unconventional romance, the cannibal road movie Bones And All, adapted from Camille DeAngelis’ award-winning 2016 novel of the same name.

From the time "Bardo: False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths" premiered at this year's Venice International Film Festival, it was met with a ton of resistance. /Film's own Marshall Shaffer called the film "an incoherent grab-bag of visual metaphors delivered with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer" in his 3-out-of-10 review. While the critical community has been generally averse to the latest film by two-time Best Director winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu, the film has found many supporters within the filmmaking community.

The most reassuring thing about "Glass Onion," Rian Johnson's superb follow-up to "Knives Out," is that it's subtitled "A Knives Out Mystery." Johnson's first Benoit Blanc film felt like lightning in a bottle, a non-IP movie with a big, star-studded cast that produced blockbuster box-office numbers. Even better, it was brilliant.

This post contains spoilers for the entire "Scream" series so far.With "Scream" (2022) being a major financial and critical success (spawning a sequel that's already wrapped up filming), it's easy to overlook "Scream 4," the standalone entry that failed to revive the series. The 2011 film was a box office disappointment, and with very few new characters surviving, it put the eventual sequel in a tough place.

This article contains major spoilers for "Terrifier 2."In a horror movie season dominated by Michael Myers ("Halloween Ends"), killer grimaces ("Smile"), and hellish Airbnbs ("Barbarian"), Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton) has earned a spot among the greats with "Terrifier 2." Earlier in the fall, the sequel to director Damien Leone's 2016 splatter flick received not only positive reviews but great word-of-mouth buzz that took Art from a genre curiosity to a full-blown pantomime slasher superstar.


How To Watch Black Adam At Home

SlashFilm - Mon, 2022-11-21 15:19

For almost a decade-and-a-half, Dwayne Johnson has been developing the Warner Bros./DC film, "Black Adam." We've finally gotten to see the titular antihero on the big screen going up against the Justice Society of America.

The latest film by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead prompted our own Shelagh Rowan-Legg to conclude her review thusly: "Delving once again into the metaphysical and its shadowy yet pervasive hold, Something in the Dirt takes a labyrinthian walk through the minds of two lonely and somewhat shifty men, something of a return to Benson and Moorhead's indie roots and yet an expansion on the unique world they've created in their films.

It's a good time to be named Charlie Cox. Netflix's — and now Marvel's — "Daredevil" star is set to lead the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the blind lawyer with excessive Catholic guilt in "Daredevil: Born Again." With that renewed social currency, Cox is finding a wealth of other stories to tell.

Over the course of nearly 25 years, the Criterion Collection has established itself as the premier home-media location for cinephiles to get pristine copies of French-language commentaries on World War II, the films of Wes Anderson, samurai epics, and everything in between. If there's one area where Criterion is lacking (relatively speaking), it's in the medium of animation.

"Believing what you fear will bring to the victim what they are afraid of." Hidden Empire has debuted an official trailer for Fear, yet another January horror film releasing at the end of the first month in the New Year. From director Deon Taylor, best known for his films The Intruder, Fatale, and Black and Blue. A year into living through a worldwide pandemic, a group of friends gather in the remote Tahoe Mountains to stay at the "Historic Strawberry Lodge". But celebration turns to terror as one by one each guest faces their own worst fear.

"The Sopranos" was always a little controversial, and that controversy made things difficult for Ilene Landress, a producer and production manager for the show.

Here it is, the episode "Chainsaw Man" has been building towards, the one that will filter out normies and find the real degenerates who are the target audience, the moment the prologue ends and the real show begins. So far, the anime has been doing a good job of introducing its idiosyncratic world and characters and showing off its eclectic influences.

Nanny, writer-director Nikyatu Jusu's impressively-imagined, impressively crafted feature-length debut, brilliantly explores one aspect of the the 21st-century immigrant experience that's too often left either unexamined or under-examined on film, TV, and cable.

Life reveals itself to us in ways we would never expect when our worlds are just beginning to form. Childhood lessons often do not come into perspective until we have the wisdom to see them clearly, many years down the road. It is with this in mind that I reflect on the exquisite new documentary, "All The Beauty and the Bloodshed," which is at the same time a portrait of an artist on the fringes, an analysis of her early family life, and a biting indictment of everything the infamous Sackler family has destroyed in their quest to make opioids the number one pain treatment in America.

"I just have one question. You're not a ghost?" Let's go, Refn!! Netflix has debuted the main official trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn's experimental streaming series called Copenhagen Cowboy, which is set to launch on Netflix starting in January. It first premiered with episodes at the 2022 Venice Film Festival a few months ago and is ready to debut soon. The series introduces a brand new young heroine, Miu, who travels through Copenhagen's criminal netherworld. More of these intense, mesmerizing, crime-filled neon lights stories from the Refn-verse to enjoy this fall.

Quick, someone give loan me $62 plus shipping and handling so I can gift myself an edible recreation of the treehouse from "Hereditary." The folks over at A24 are known for their wonderfully specific merchandising endeavors, like the time they sold the Special Auditor Award from "Everything Everywhere All At Once" which is intentionally and unmistakably shaped like a different object that makes date night a lot more fun.

"What he really wanted was to spend Thanksgiving with his family. What he got was three days with the turkey."The tagline of "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" promises laughs, and writer-director-producer John Hughes delivers plenty in its snappy 97-minute runtime.

Steven Spielberg's "1941" is one of the most blissfully chaotic movies ever made. It is obscenely expensive, narratively scatterbrained, and unabashedly irreverent about one of the most devastating acts of war ever carried out by a foreign nation on American soil. It's more of a model train set than a movie, one operated by a spoiled brat who'd rather send the cars soaring off the track into the basement wall than keep his meticulously constructed railroad running smoothly.

Ever since Hugh Jackman finally ended his reign as the fan-favorite character Wolverine in 2017 with James Mangold's acclaimed, R-rated magnum opus "Logan," speculation has been building as to whether or not he'll ever rock the adamantium claws again. When it debuted, the original "X-Men" film felt like a breath of fresh air for the superhero genre, but in retrospect, the entire franchise has been a little bit of a disappointment.

It feels like we as a society have sort of memory-holed just how popular the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise was during the 2000s. Those movies were pulling in hundreds of millions of dollars each, and there were five of them! That's so many! My parents owned a copy of "The Game of Life: Pirates of the Caribbean Edition" and none of us had even seen the movie!I'm not too torn up about the series being forgotten in history, mostly because of star Johnny Depp's status as the internet darling of domestic abuse apologists.

Hungry for social satire? The Menu is pretty palatable. It follows other recent films pitting the rich against the poor: Ready or Not (2019), The Platform (2019), and Triangle of Sadness (2022) are three examples that do it well. If Ready or Not feels like a lightweight dessert, The Menu feels more like the soup course. It doesn't take the meatier risks of Triangle of Sadness or The Platform, but its expertly-balanced mix of humor and horror make it more than worthy of inclusion at the table.

"You have no idea who you're dealing with." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for an intriguing new dystopian thriller from Turkey titled Hot Skull, which will be out to watch on Netflix starting in December. Adapted from a Turkish novel of the same name, this sort of apocalyptic story involves a cool sci-fi concept where talking can spread a disease by connecting pathways in one person's mind. In a dystopian world, as an epidemic spreads through verbal communication, a tyrannical institution pursues a linguist immune to the disease.
