Good job 'Game of Thrones' fans, you stopped watching porn for an hour

Good job guys, it looks like a few of you managed to peel your eyes away from watching internet porn watching long enough to watch the hour-long Game of Thrones season 7 premiere on Sunday. Give yourselves a pat on the back. It turns out if there’s anything that can distract people from...

'The Shape of Water' trailer boasts a cool creature AND Michael Shannon

Guillermo del Toro has gifted the world with so many strange and fantastical creatures he scored his own exhibit at LACMA last year. And we’re about to get another one. In “The Shape of Water,” arriving in December, we get to meet the one credited right now as simply “the...

Finn Wittrock talks 'Landline' and how he reacted to 'La La Land''s Oscar night

Remember the ’90s? Finn Wittrock sort of does. The actor is 32, meaning he was only an adolescent in 1995, which is when his new movie, “Landline” — the latest from the team that made “Obvious Child” — takes place. It’s a fun backdrop for a very funny...

Amazon Prime movies coming in August 2017

‘Superbad’ (Aug. 4) Congratulations, you’re old: Hollywood’s last super-huge teen comedy is about to turn 10. And it’s aged awkwardly, too. Back in 2007, the Judd Apatow Machine was still primarily obsessed with boys, be they the teens (Michael Cera and Jonah Hill)...

'Girls Trip' better make Tiffany Haddish into a star

‘Girls Trip’ Director: Malcolm D. Lee Stars: Regina Hall, Queen Latifah Rating: R 3 (out of 5) Globes Cinema history is littered with starmaking moments. The camera dollying up to John Wayne in “Stagecoach.” Tom Cruise sliding around in his tighty-whities in “...

'The Disaster Artist' trailer will tear you apart

It’s not the worst movie ever made. If pressed, we’d go with “Across the Universe” or any of Dinesh D’Souza’s three anti-lefty docs that make way too much money and legitimately harm the world, including last year’s “Hillary’s America: The...

Geek Girl in Hollywood: Finally, a female-led 'Doctor Who'

This Sunday, the 13th Doctor was announced for the new season of the BBC’s long-running show Doctor Who. If you’ve managed somehow to miss this show, let me explain. It’s been around since 1963 and there are 36 seasons. There have been 12 Doctors (well, more, but it’s...

'A Wrinkle in Time' trailer shows Ava DuVernay going big time

The trailer for the next Ava DuVernay movie is here! No, not her forthcoming Netflix deal about the Central Park Five, which was just announced. The filmmaker is very busy these days, which is all the more impressive because she’s been toggling between social justice fare (like her Oscar-...

'Dunkirk' is Christopher Nolan's original, intense version of a war movie

‘Dunkirk’ Director: Christopher Nolan Stars: Fionn Whitehead, Mark Rylance Rating: PG-13 4 (out of 5) Globes For one thing, “Dunkirk” will make you terrified of planes. It will do what “Jaws” did for the beach or what the MTA does for getting to your...

'Blade Runner 2049' trailer is pretty Harrison Ford-heavy

There’s some more Ryan Gosling in the new trailer for “Blade Runner 2049,” ditto Jared Leto’s blind villain, ditto shots with that piss-yellow filter. But the big news is we see even more Harrison Ford. Yes, Deckard is back and no, we can’t tell if he’s a...

Martin Landau, of 'Ed Wood' and 'Mission: Impossible,' dies at 89

Martin Landau has passed away at the age of 89. It’s only fitting that an actor who only got better with age would live that long. Landau spent the first half of his career as a journeyman — a character actor with leading man looks. (In youth, he faintly resembled John Cassavetes...

George A. Romero was more than his zombie movies

George A. Romero didn’t invent the word “zombie,” but he might as well have. Before he unleashed “Night of the Living Dead” upon an unsuspecting world in 1968, the word didn’t instantly conjure up what it would mean from then on out: white terror, hungry corpses...

5 dumbest things in 'Wish Upon'

It’s a pretty good idea for a horror movie, actually: An unhappy teen (Joey King’s Clare) finds a magical box that grants her any wish she wants — but at the cost of one of her loved one’s life apiece. But “Wish Upon” is not even a fun-bad horror movie. It...

Disney taunts us with first glimpse of 'Star Wars' land

Whatever you think of the new batch of “Star Wars” movies — let’s speak little of the dreaded (but not that evil) prequels — even the prickliest nerd has to admit this is cool: Disney just unveiled its first look at “Star Wars” land. That is: a 14...

Every spoiler in 'War for the Planet of the Apes'

This piece contains spoilers. It’s war “War for the Planet of the Apes” opens with a battle. Two years have passed since the events of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” which ended with human-ape relations frayed, probably for good. Now it’s even worse. Most...

Blake Lively to beat up a lot of people in 'The Rhythm Section'

Here’s an unpopular opinion: Blake Lively was better in “The Shallows” than Leonardo DiCaprio was in “The Revenant.” Yes, “The Shallows” — the movie with the shark. It wouldn’t seem to have much in common with a 2 ½ hour long take parade...

'Lady Macbeth' is a feminist revenge movie gone dark

‘Lady Macbeth’ Director: William Oldroyd Stars: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis Rating: R 4 (out of 5) Globes She doesn’t want our pity. Her name is Katherine, and she’s the purchased bride of a loutish, 30-something, 19th century trust fund brat named Alexander (Paul...

Steve Zahn on how 'War for the Planet of the Apes' is about right now

Roddy McDowall had it easy. In the old “Planet of the Apes” movies, the actor — along with the likes of Kim Hunter, Sal Mineo and John Huston — got to wear beautiful, elaborate ape masks. Not Steve Zahn. To play a chimp in “War for the Planet of the Apes,”...
