Every spoiler in Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk'

You may think you know what happens in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk.” Maybe you read the Wikipedia page on the Battle of Dunkirk. (Maybe you even — gasp — read a book on it.) It’s no spoiler to say that the evacuation of 400,000 English soldiers from...

Watch the intense new trailer for Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk'

There’s a new trailer for the forthcoming World War II movie “Dunkirk.” And it’s pretty intense, filled with dog fights in the air, soldiers trying not to drown in submerging water, civilians chipping into help. It’s the kind of movie we don’t see anymore. And...

'Mad Max' already has two more sequels written

Franchise news can be a necessary evil. We know Hollywood is only making film series now, and there was no less essential news this week than that Disney and Pixar had nabbed a bunch of future release dates for films that are untitled and so far have no premise ready to reveal. (Who’s pumped...

Tom Hardy is the hero London needs

Tom Hardy is a real life hero and I’m here for it. The “Taboo” actor, likely inspired by his experience in the glorious, action-heavy “Mad Max: Fury Road,” reportedly chased down a thief in London and it was very acrobatic. Baby’s been studying parkour!...
