Mon, 11/21/2016 - 08:48

Six years ago, Emilia Clarke burst into popular consciousness during the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones. Her character, Daenerys Targaryen, began as a naive and submissive young woman who soon emerged as a far stronger personality than might have been anticipated.

In concert with her character, Clarke has risen from relative obscurity to immense...

The First 'Cars 3' Teaser Trailer Is a Surprisingly Gritty Change of Pace

Mon, 11/21/2016 - 08:41

Pixar's Cars franchise, which includes the two main features plus two spin-off Planes movies, has always taken place in an incredibly cartoon-y universe. Obviously that's the case considering it's filled with talking vehicles who live in a world that is clearly designed for humans and yet strangely has no humans in it, but it's worth pointing out because it looks like Cars 3 may be leaving that cartoon-y universe behind. Disney and Pixar still haven't revealed an official...

This weekend’s Moana joins a long line of colorful and escapist movies set in and around the tropical islands of the South Pacific. Many movies have been shot in such exotic island locales as Hawaii, Fiji and Tahiti featuring tribal cultures, beautiful settings and, of course, a good chance of adventure. Here are just a few we like to revisit – if not literally, at least on the big screen. Moana (1926) One of the earliest films set in the South Pacific shares a name with...

Get Into a Naughty Kind of Christmas Spirit With This 'Bad Santa 2' Clip

Fri, 11/18/2016 - 09:00

Every holiday season a feel-good, all-ages Christmas comedy comes along that wants to unite the whole family in love for what's supposed to be a joyous, selfless time of giving. It's safe to say Bad Santa 2 delights in not being that kind of movie. Sure, there are some feel-good aspects to it, and it's funny and joyous, but it's also about a deeply selfish conman (Billy Bob Thornton) who uses the Christmas spirit to take advantage of everyone around him. Oh, and it's...

What Is 'Nocturnal Animals' About? Watch the Cast Explain (Without Actually Spoiling Anything)

Fri, 11/18/2016 - 09:00

It is not easy to market a movie in 2016. Show too much in a trailer, people will blast you for giving away all the best stuff. Show too little and you risk alienating an audience that can't quite figure you out. Every now and then, though, a movie finds a way to show off a ton of vivid imagery without actually spoiling all of its secrets. That's the case with Nocturnal Animals, a new thriller whose twisty mystery is its greatest selling point. Written and directed by Tom Ford...

In case this year's World Series didn't already make it obvious enough, sports will never, ever stop offering up underdog stories that defy everyone's expectations. In the realm of boxing there is perhaps no greater comeback story than that of Vinny Pazienza, a rising boxer in the '90s whose career was cut short after a car accident left Pazienza with a broken neck. Or, at least it should have been cut short. Every doctor and specialist Pazienza met with told him that...

There have been a lot of King Kong movies. Maybe not quite as many as his giant cohort Godzilla, but when a franchise has been rebooted four times, you'd think all of the creative juices would have been tapped by now. And yet here we are with a new trailer for Kong: Skull Island, a fifth franchise reboot which not only looks wildly different from any King Kong movie before it, but it just looks flat-out amazing.
