New Batman film to feature Penguin and Catwoman as villains: Report

Now that director Matt Reeves is beginning to put The Batman together, as Warner Bros. looks to reset one of its best-known (and most lucrative) characters for the second time in roughly five-six years, the rumors have begun to emerge in earnest about who’ll don the cape and cowl next. As we learned yesterday, former Twilight Star Robert

David Gilmour releases Live at Pompeii concert film for free on YouTube

Film Review: Missing Link is Yet Another Stop-Motion Jewel in Laika’s Crown

The Pitch: Moses (Marchánt Davis) is a would-be spiritual leader, overseeing a handful of bumbling followers who, as the Star of Six, practice sustainable farming, preach non-violence, and pray to Haitian revolutionary leader François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture. They’re not without their issues, however, as Moses is clearly delusional, naming a duck as his conduit to God

(Editor’s note: The following review concerns a work-in-progress cut of Stuber at SXSW 2019. As such, a final grade will be held until the film’s release this summer.) The Pitch: Hardened Los Angeles detective Vic (Dave Bautista) is supposed to be at home recovering from a recent LASIK procedure. But when Tejo (Iko Uwais), the drug lord
