FIRST MAN

First Man
Director: Damien Chazelle
Writers: Josh Singer
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Ciarán Hinds, Christopher Abbott, Patrick Fugit, Lukas Haas
Studio: Universal Studios
Rated PG-13 | 141 Minutes
Release Date: October 12, 2018

First Man covers man’s epic journey to the moon at the peak of the space race of the 1960s. It’s a bit of a step away for Damien Chazelle, who is better known for music-based films like Whiplash and La La Land, but one that plays to his strengths. A film about characters making great sacrifices.

Not only that, but it also succeeds on a technical level. Close-up shots and the shaky cam brings audiences closer to the story and allows them to see physical and emotional toll these NASA missions have on the crew. Additionally, the cinematography, especially in the IMAX sequences, displays the grandeur of the collective effort to not only get man on the moon but also its successful landing. The problem is, the film suffers from a by-the-numbers story that does very little to engage with its audience. Check out my full review of the film below.

WB Projected To Lose Up To $100 Million On ‘Justice League’

Justice League

Justice League‘s disappointing turn out at the box office last weekend could give way to a huge financial blow to Warner Bros. Normally, a film that grossed $94 million would be a cause for celebration. But when you factor in the cost of production and promotional material, a low $94 million is not even enough to cover a fraction of the overall film. In fact, Justice League is already lined up to becoming the lowest grossing DCEU film since the universe was launched back in 2013.

These low numbers could have a negative impact on the future of the DCEU has a whole. More on the story below.

Justice League
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, Joss Whedon
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, Ciarán Hinds
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 120
Release Date: November 22, 2017

It’s easy to go into watching Justice League with very low expectations considering how the entire DCEU is filled with bad to god-awful films, with the exception of Wonder Woman. That film was a huge step forward in the right direction for the superhero universe, as it used themes of hope and optimism to do some course correction.

But with Justice League looking like it did in the trailers, one would think that the film would be a step back. However, that isn’t the case. While it is flawed, Justice League has a lighter tone, is funnier, and isn’t as bleak as some of its predecessors. That being said, it is a DCEU film. But at least it is a DCEU film that takes another step in the right direction. Check out my full review below.

Justice League

Thor: Ragnarok isn’t the only superhero film to open this November. In just a few short weeks, Warner Bros. will be releasing their latest superhero ensemble film, Justice League. Featuring some of DC’s mightiest heroes, the film will bring together Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to stop a powerful threat that could put an end to all life as we know it.

Though we got a fleeting glimpse of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) through the small deleted scene and a few trailers, a handful of new clips gives us not only our best look at the villain, but also just how powerful he is over the five heroes. So where is Superman (Henry Cavill) when you need him. Hopefully, the clips will answer that. Check it out below.

Zack Snyder Talks Vaguely About Superman’s Return In ‘Justice League’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 03

A world where the Justice League exists without Superman. It’s something we’ve all seen before whether it’s in the comics or on the small screen. But now Justice League, the big screen adaptation of the superhero ensemble, will present that idea to the audience.

The Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) has been missing for the better part of the marketing campaign and has not been seen in any of the released footage. But there is an explanation for all of that, and while Zack Snyder is not likely to spoil how Supes returns specifically, he will indulge those wondering with a few vague comments. Check out what he had to say about Superman’s absence and return in the full story below.

Movie Review: Martin Scorsese's Silence

Silence
Director: Martin Scorsese

Cast: Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Tadanobu Asano, Yosuke Kubozuka, Shin’ya Tsukamoto, Liam Neeson, Ciarán Hinds
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 161 Minutes
Release Date: December 23, 2016 (Limited)

“Lord, why are you silent? Why are you always silent?”

In 1988, at a screening for religious leaders of his new film The Last Temptation of Christ, Martin Scorsese was approached by Archbishop Paul Moore, the Episcopal Bishop of New York, who presented the filmmaker with a copy of Shūsaku Endō’s acclaimed novel Silence.

Published in 1966, the novel is the story of Jesuit missionaries sent to 17th century Japan, where they endure persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan (“Hidden Christians”) that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion, an uprising of Catholic Christian peasants during the Tokugawa shogunate’s rule.
