Goodbye summer movie season, hello awards season.
A Walk in the Woods
My parents want to see this.
Before We Go
Chris Evans’s directorial debut did solid business on demand this summer, and it will be interesting to see if his post-Marvel star power has any pull for adult audiences. Full review here.
The Transporter Refueled
The Perfect Guy
Like JLo’s The Boy Next Door except with grown-ass men.
Sleeping With Other People
Likeable cast, tired premise.
How does M. Night Shyamalan keep getting to make movies? Does no one remember The Happening?
Elle Fanning stars as a transgender teen, with Naomi Watts, Susan Sarandon, and Tate Donovan starring as his family dealing with his transition. Looks great.
This looks good, it really does, I just wish I wasn’t so fucking sick of Johnny Depp and his elaborate wig and makeup game.
This is sitting out the fall festival circuit and also isn’t getting much promotion. Ruh roh.
“Children are little monsters” is an aphorism Cooties takes seriously. Also, I am really into Elijah Woods’s post-LOTR career.
WHY? WHY DOES ANYONE CLIMB THIS MOUNTAIN? OR ANY MOUNTAIN? WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP CLIMBING MOUNTAINS?
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
This looks like a fake trailer for a movie-within-a-movie where they’re making fun of YA dystopia movies.
After a string of acclaimed smaller projects, Denis Villeneuve moves fully into the mainstream with Sicario, which looks crazy intense and has a lot of great advance word of mouth, especially for Emily Blunt’s performance. She’s really finding her groove with these HBIC roles.
Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon, and Laura Dern star in Ramin Bahrani’s latest about the collapse of the American Dream as a family is caught on the wrong side of the for-profit foreclosure business.
Hotel Transylvania 2
I mean, this looks cheesy as hell, but like…kind of sweet, too?
The Keeping Room
This seems like the kind of thing that would be based on a book, but it isn’t.
Ryan Reynolds tries, yet again, to be a Real Actor.
There are conflicting versions of what exactly happened during the Stonewall Riots—who started what and when—but I think we can all agree on one thing.
WHO THE FUCK IS DANNY?
Just the trailer gives me vertigo. The actual film will probably make me puke.
