Check out the new poster for Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water

A Guillermo del Toro film is always something to look forward to, at least, it is for me, and we're fortunate enough to have what appears to be one of his best closing out the year.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 12 STRONG When thinking about modern war dramas, especially any set in the Middle East or Africa, the movies that come to mind are BLACK HAWK DOWN, JARHEAD, LONE SURVIVOR, AMERICAN SNIPER, etc. When walking onto the set of 12 STRONG (based on the book "Horse Soldiers" by Doug Stanton), scenes from those same movies barreled through my...

Set Visit: Jerry Bruckheimer & more talk 12 Strong

When imagining New Mexico it’s easy to put aside the images of brown dirt, brown cactus and, yes, even brown water, and instead have your imagination running with UFO’s crashing into the dirt, cowboys and Native Americans riding through the desert, and drug deals going wrong on BREAKING BAD.

Set Visit: Chris Hemsworth, Trevante Rhodes & Michael Pena on 12 Strong

They started shooting 12 STRONG in the beginning of December 2016 and would shoot for a total of 43 days, which is not a long time to shoot anything of this size.

The actors were most likely worn out; director Nicolai Fuglsig was seen running about like an excited madman, a grin on his face over...

So there was some "controversy" (in large-ass air-quotes) recently, concerning the marketing for Bethesda's upcoming game WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS. See, they ran this promo (which, mind you, began as a game set in WWII, then transitioned into an alternate history where evil Nazis have taken over America): Make America Nazi-Free Again. #NoMoreNazis #Wolf2...

Edge of Private Ryan video essay

EDGE OF TOMORROW’s first battle sequence – involving a beyond reluctant Tom Cruise being forced into battle against an army of alien tentacle monsters – was a visually stupendous start to a series of epic battle sequences in what became one of the best summer movies of 2014. One reason why the terrifically orchestrated chaos was so undeniably badass is that when you...
