War for the Planet of the Apes producer talks the future of franchise

This July, 20th Century Fox will unleash the latest installment in what has to be one of the more surprisingly strong franchise reboots in recent memory. WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES will put the cap on what's seen by producer Peter Chernin as a trilogy of new APES movies, which of course kicked off with 2011's RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. That film was the first project...

We interview Jessica Chastain & Niki Caro for The Zookeeper's Wife

I've interviewed Jessica Chastain five times now, and she just keeps getting lovelier. On this occasion we talked about her stunning new film THE ZOOKEERPER'S WIFE, based on the international bestseller by Diane Ackerman. In the film, Chastain plays Antonina Zabinski, one half of a married pair of zookeepers who kept safe hundreds of Jews during the Nazi invasion of Poland in...

Review: All Nighter

PLOT: When his daughter goes missing, her steely father teams up with her loser ex-boyfriend to find her. REVIEW: Imagine if MEET THE PARENTS eliminated everyone but De Niro and Stiller, took place in L.A. predominantly over the course of a single night and you'll have a very good idea of what ALL NIGHTER is all about. It's a perfectly acceptable comedy that entertains...

Exclusive: James Mangold and Dafne Keen talk Logan!

We've known for years that James Mangold is quite a capable director, but I don't know if anyone knew he had LOGAN in him. Well, perhaps aside from Mangold himself. One of the creative forces behind the stunningly adult final act of Hugh Jackman 's Wolverine career, Mangold has made what will be widely acknowledged as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. And he...

Exclusive: Kinberg & Parker talk Logan, Dark Phoenix, future of X-Men & more

You may have heard there's a game-changing new superhero movie in town. LOGAN goes berserk this weekend on an unsuspecting public, and it may very well change the way people look at this genre. It's not just the violence and R-rating, either. It's the emotionality of the film, the toughness, the raw human heart at the center of everything that happens. I'm on the record...

Toy Fair 2017: Massive Gallery of Pics! Justice League! Guardians 2! & more!

Toy Fair 2017 is just wrapping up here in NYC, and the other day I was able to stroll the halls of the Jacob Javitz Center and snap a few pics (well, over 100) of all the cool upcoming movie and TV-related toys and figurines that will be gracing shelves soon. There are a lot to get to, so let's jump in. Almost all of these figures will be available at some point later this year,...

Review: Rings

PLOT: A young woman finds that her boyfriend has joined a secret club that watches the fabled cursed video tape of Samara Morgan. Once again, the ghost is unleashed, killing people who watch the tape within seven days. REVIEW: As appetizing as a cup of moldy well water, F. Javier Gutierrez 's RINGS wears the signs of a movie that is both overcooked and misconceived. The film...
