Christopher Nolan

Now that it’s clear that Christopher Nolan‘s untitled upcoming film isn’t North By Northwest meets Inception, as was previously reported, many of us are back to speculating as to what it could be about.

But one thing that we do know is that it will be an event film that is scheduled for a summer 2020 release. And as many of us wait to find out what the film could be about, reports of who will star in it have emerged. Multiple reports say that BlacKkKlansman star John David Washington, High Life star Robert Pattinson, and Widows star Elizabeth Debicki are poised to have roles in Nolan’s mysterious new film. More on the report below.

Steve McQueen‘s Widows is not just a heist film. It’s a heist film with an empowering message, wrapped with social issues that continue to affect us today. It’s a phenomenal piece of work featuring women of color taking back the power. Though it has familiar heist tropes, Widows has plenty of depth, as well as twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. Check out my full review below.

Movie Review: The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox
Director: Julius Onah
Screenwriter: Oren Uziel and Doug Jung
Cast: Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Aksel Hennie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, John Ortiz, David Oyelowo, and Zhang Ziyi
Distributor: Netflix
Rated TV-MA | 102 Mintues
Release Date: January 4, 2018

One thing you have to appreciate about the Cloverfield franchise is that it is building its own mythology without the films’ actually knowing its a part of J.J. Abrams’ grand mystery box scheme. Cloverfield was a sci-fi romp that drew its found-footage inspiration from films like Blair Witch. 10 Cloverfield Lane was a more focused offering that was like a theatrical play set almost entirely in an underground bunker. And both are somehow loosely connected to each other without the characters of those films knowing it. However, Netflix surprised us all on Sunday night by releasing The Cloverfield Paradox, the latest installment of the Cloverfield franchise, this time set in space.

Unfortunately, the entire film is a disjointed mess that haphazardly throws in dated and familiar plot devices and twists for the sake of being “Cloverfield In Space.”

‘Cloverfield Paradox’ Super Bowl Spot: Netflix To Debut New Film After The Big Game

Cloverfield Paradox

The first look at Cloverfield Paradox aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night, and in a huge surprise announcement, Netflix will premiere the film on their streaming service tonight after the Big Game!

After being delayed multiple times, the film continues the vague and strange marketing campaign that the Cloverfield films are largely known for. Even finding out who will distribute the film was a mystery. But Netflix is no stranger to releasing big teasers on Super Bowl Sunday. They started to practice that last year with Stranger Things 2, and look how successful that turned out to be.

Now the teaser offers a tiny sneak peek into J.J. Abram’s latest mystery box, and it is just as cryptic and strange as the last two. Check out the first look at Cloverfield Paradox here below.

‘God Particle’: ‘Cloverfield’ Spinoff May Be Released By Netflix

10 Cloverfield Lane Cast

The Cloverfield films have been known to have an unorthodox marketing campaign. From out of nowhere a trailer can appear for a film that was produced under a different title. And for the most part, this strategy has worked. It may not produce wild box office numbers like blockbuster tentpoles do, but under the production and marketing budget of the two films so far, it is enough of a hit to warrant more.

However, it appears that Paramount Pictures is having second thoughts about releasing the next Cloverfield film, which is tentatively titled God Particle. There are reports now that the film might be heading to Netflix. More on the story below.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Blu-ray banner

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital HD
Written & Directed by James Gunn
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: August 22, 2017

By 2014, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was already an unstoppable juggernaut. Still relishing in the success of 2012’s The Avengers making over $1.5 billion at the box office, the MCU took a chance on a rag tag group of not-so familiar superheroes, The Guardians of the Galaxy. For 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, director James Gunn (Slither) blended the perfect mixture of action and comedy, and made some of the best gambles in the history of film casting. The doofus from Parks and Recreation, a WWE wrestler, Vin Diesel to voice a walking tree who says three words… this bizarre recipe generated $773 million in domestic profits and proved that the MCU was borderline infallible. Guardians just felt different from the other good, yet generic superhero outings and it remains one of the most beloved films of its genre.

How ‘God Particle’ Became Connected To The ‘Cloverfield’ Universe

Cloverfield

Cloverfield sequels aren’t exactly sequels, but they aren’t exactly spinoffs either. So while 10 Cloverfield Lane may have a similar title, it isn’t a direct sequel, it is a spiritual sequel that shares loose connections to its predecessor. Basically, these films are a part of a larger universe. The characters just don’t know it. But it is the fact that you never see these films coming that is not only surprising but refreshing.

But to hide that 10 Cloverfield Lane was related, the film was shot as Valencia and then changed its title a few months before release. With the Cloverfield films popular again, it’s easy to see why people might be more interested in any new titles from Bad Robot and Paramount.

However, Paramount isn’t exactly being secretive about God Particle being the next chapter of the series. In fact, we are learning more about the film and how it ended up being connected. Check it out below.
