The goal with any society is to get better at stuff, to learn from mistakes and evolve, gradually, over time, to become the best version of itself. But for all the woke baes and social justice awareness out there, it looks like movies still have a long way to go. A new study has found that white men still get the most dialogue in today’s cinema, and women and minorities are still often relegated to stereotypical, nonessential roles.
We all knew Get Out was one of the best success stories of the year, but did you know it is actually, as of now, THE most successful movie to open in 2017? Jordan Peele’s sharp study of modern racism disguised as a horror flick is the most profitable movie of the year, with a return on investment of 630 percent.
Frozen is heading to Broadway, which comes as absolutely no surprise whatsoever. The Disney film remains one of the company’s biggest releases ever, every kid knows at least the chorus of “Let It Go” by now, and I was just in Target today and they’re still selling Anna and Elsa sippy cups. The musical is imminent, and as such it just debuted the official poster.
Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is already the director’s most successful film to date, with a $76 million worldwide take so far on a budget of $34 million. But the movie has yet to open in a bunch of countries, including Germany, Brazil, Japan, and more (it only just had its Australian premiere, courtesy of George Miller). So, to get more bods in theater seats, Universal has released the entire opening bank heist and car chase scene from the movie on YouTube. Even if you’ve already seen the movie, you gotta watch this again. And turn your volume up.
Well, folks, here it is: possibly the most anticipated Marvel trailer in recent memory. Black Panther is the titular superhero’s first solo outing since he was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, and is also the first Marvel movie with a predominantly black cast. Welcome to Wakanda, the African nation T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) presides over, which has been in turmoil since the untimely death of T’Challa’s father, the former king. The country is also the subject of some contention due to its proximity to a very important (yet fictional) metal.
Because the one thing this world has been clamoring for is a Suicide Squad sequel, we’ve got a few updates on Deadshot and the gang’s next adventure. For one thing, the script is being written right now, and it looks like, although it doesn’t officially have a director, the movie is on track for a production start sometime next year.
The owner of the largest privately-owned Star Wars memorabilia collection in the world, known as Rancho Obi-Wan, has announced today that it has been systematically robbed over a period of many months from 2015 to 2016. Steve Sansweet, who offers tours of the ranch and its many pieces of Star Wars history, says that not only do the items taken make up about $200,000, it appears to be an inside job.
In the weeks before the new season of Twin Peaks premiered, none of the promotional footage we saw gave us any hints about what to expect. That was exactly how David Lynch wanted it: for a show this intricate and bizarre and tempting to try and dissect, there was to be no information that could lend itself to any early fan theorizing. Even the episode descriptions on Showtime’s website (for Episodes 1 and 2: “The stars turn and a time presents itself”) are deliberately oblique. Lynch himself thinks that all the promotional material we’re inundated with before a movie or a show premieres does more harm than good.
It’s gotta be tough for actors and directors when folks don’t like their movie, especially when a lot of those folks are the critics driving the scores on review aggregation websites before the movie has a chance to hit theaters. Baywatch has officially been out since Wednesday, and the critical reception has been… less than great. Some regular non-critics seem to dig the film, which The Rock was quick to pick up on.
