Top Movie News for November 25, 2015
There was a lot to take in with the first Captain America: Civil War trailer, from the return of Bucky / Winter Soldier to the "accords" and the debut of Black Panther. Marvel introduced the first Phase Three film with a pretty detailed trailer, forgoing the usual vague teaser in favor of something far more meaty, and while you've probably watched the trailer a few times by now, there's still some stuff you probably missed — and that's where directors Joe and Anthony Russo come in, delivering lots and lots of interesting details.

CBS News We didn’t always go to the movies on Thanksgiving. It was a holiday to spend with your family, and the bonding festivities were to last the whole day through. For better or worse. Now we escape our family, or at least their objectionable conversation topics, by sitting in a theater, where no one can talk politics or put down each other’s life choices, and staring at pretty much anything available on the big screen for a couple hours. But Thanksgiving shouldn’t be a holiday for escapism. Leave that fluff for Christmas.

One of the more maligned superheros in the DC Universe, Aquaman has his work cut out for him in proving he can carry a movie on his own, unlike his more well-respected teammates in the Justice League. With the imposing Jason Momoa in the lead role and not taking any guff, the upcoming Aquaman solo film from Furious 7 director James Wan might just do the job. Aquaman’s solo outing is not planned for release until 2018, but like at least one other DC superhero destined for her own movie, he will be making his first appearance in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It was never meant to be opened. Fox has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming horror thriller The Other Side of the Door, starring Sarah Wayne Callies (from "The Walking Dead", Into the Storm) as a grieving mother desperate for emotional closure after her son is killed in a freak accident. She eventually enters into a strange supernatural world in an attempt to contact her dead son from the other side. The cast includes Jeremy Sisto and Javier Botet. Interestingly this seems to be set mostly in India so it's a whole different kind of supernatural, but still just as chilling.

A few days ago, an article from Forbes contributor Paul Tassi made the rounds on the internet, and probably not for the reasons he had hoped. “‘Jessica Jones’ Makes Me Question The Entire Point Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe” was the title of the piece, and, well, I couldn’t help but feel it was an article written by someone who doesn’t fully understand the business of television and movies, and certainly not Marvel’s method and game plan. Don’t get me wrong, Tassi is a fine writer.

Ryan Coogler's Creed is the best film of the year. That may come as a shock for some of you especially if you're among those old enough to remember many of the hokier directions the Rocky series took. After six films and several ups and downs, it didn't seem reasonable to go back to the Balboa well once again. Instead, it was time to revitalize the series for a newer, younger audience. I know what several of you think of the word "reboot," but, when it works – and those exceptions are few and far between – there's no denying it.

I'm a huge fan of Greek tragedy, and I remain a fan of Spike Lee, despite some recent missteps in a few films. His latest, Chi-Raq, will be released in the US on December 4th, and it looks pretty awesome, reminiscent of Do the Right Thing and Mo Better Blues in combining politics with music, though perhaps on a grander scale (and with a bigger budget).An adaptation of the Greek play Lysistrata by Aristophanes, Chi-Raq is set in contemporary Chicago, where the murder of a child by a stray bullet serves as a rallying cry to the black women of the city.
Director Ron Howard has dabbled in sci-fi and fantasy with the likes of Cocoon, Willow and Splash, but over the course of his illustrious career he's yet to take the helm of a comic book/superhero movie - and it's not because he hasn't had the opportunity. During his appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Howard revealed that he'd been approached by George Lucas do direct Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - along with Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis, incidentally - but managed to convince him that he was the only man for the job (thanks for that, Ron).
"Of course, if you go in intellectually, you hate it. But if you let yourself go with it, something happens about 40 minutes into the movie. You say to yourself, 'Hey, this isn't going to be the colossal downer of all time.'" That's Sylvester Stallone talking about "Rocky," in a 1976 interview with Roger Ebert. Looking at the mega action-star's whole career in hindsight, and up until today, you could just as easily apply that quote to all of his films.

The film opened in only 10 cinemas across the country, roughly grossing £4.60 ($6.90) per cinema.
