When a movie is based on real events, one of the biggest challenges is to tell an exciting and suspenseful story, even though the audience already knows the ending. This is a particular problem in period pieces, where some historical knowledge can quickly turn into a movie spoiler. But director Joe Wright is a...

Everyone is familiar with Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. — but few people know what’s going on right outside the “happiest place on earth.” With his movie “The Florida Project,” director Sean Baker takes the audience to a place that couldn’t be a larger contrast to the world-famous amusement park populated by mice,...

When the trailer for “IT” got published, it was watched more than 190 million within the first 24 hours. This incredible number broke all records by far and predicted a huge success for the movie. The studio even green lighted a sequel before the official start. But can the movie hold up to the hype? There is something...

Despite being one of the most talented directors out there, Darren Aronofsky’s last movie “Noah,” an American epic biblical drama, was not well received by the public or critics. After the poor ratings his movie received, viewers thought Aronofsky would move forward, and leave religious movies behind. But audiences...

After his screenplays for “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water,” writer and director Taylor Sheridan completed his American Frontier trilogy with his second feature “Wind River,” starring Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen.

Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) is a boy genius. Not only does he take care of the...

“Dark Universe” is what Universal Studios calls its attempt to establish a new movie series full of classic monsters. After watching Disney make billions with its Marvel and Star Wars franchises, the studio now wants its own piece of the pie. The opening to its new series, “The Mummy,” is the studio’s attempt at getting...

Here it is – the eighth movie of Universal’s automotive carnage franchise, and the first to see the original crew moving on after Paul Walker’s tragic death. It was the actor’s chemistry with Vin Diesel that got the series this far, which makes it crucial to see if the fans are still committed (and they are). Before...

Indie director Zach Braff, better known as the dreamy doctor J.D. from “Scrubs,” has delivered his third feature film, and this time there’s nothing indie about it.
