Now they have reunited for Velvet Buzzsaw, a satirical film that takes on the world of contemporary art, and joining them is their Nightcrawler co-star Rene Russo. A trailer for the film has been released and you can check it out below.

“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.

James Gunn director of Guardians of the Galaxy

The Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards were held this weekend, and of the many film nominated, you probably would not find superhero films vying for some of the bigger awards like Best Picture. But they were easy prey for some of the acceptance speeches and opening numbers. Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy made it a point to say that independent film has survived under the “tsunami of superhero movies,” and Jack Black was involved in the opening Oscars number that mocked the genre by singing: “Superman, Spider-man, Batman, Jediman, Sequelman, Prequelman — formulaic scripts!”

Now James Gunn, the director behind Guardians of the Galaxy, has spoken out in defense of superhero films to say that he and others who make superhero films put as much effort and love into their film as the independent directors put into their indie films. Hit the jump for more.
