The Fate Of The Furious

When it comes to casting news for the The Fast and The Furious franchise, don’t expect to hear any reports from the trades. Usually, this information comes right from the stars of the film themselves. Like Vin Diesel, who has been there for almost the entire franchise. The actor took to social media today to announce that Oscar-winning actresses Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren will be back to reprise their roles. More on the report here below.

Movie Review: Yesterday

Yesterday

Yesterday
Director: Danny Boyle
Writer: Richard Curtis
Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon, Ed Sheeran
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 157
Release Date: June 28, 2019

A world where The Beatles do not exist would be a strange one. But it is one small part of the entire premise of the fantastical romantic comedy Yesterday. Directed by Danny Boyle and written by Richard Curtis, the film explores such a world where only one man remembers the music of The Beatles, and how his life will dramatically change. But underneath such a simple premise lies a sweet love story and a quandary of what would happen if you had all that knowledge yet you knew that it wasn’t truly your work.

Though it may be narratively flawed by not fully exploring an interesting concept and plays it safe at times with the rom-com aspects, Yesterday relies on the direction of Boyle and Curtis’s script – though their voices may inadvertently clash at times – along with Lily James‘ cheery performance to carry the film all the way to end. My full review below.

Queen and Slim

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Queen and Slim, the upcoming film from Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe and director Melina Matsoukas. The film stars Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya and newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith in what can be best described as a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde tale, but with a “consciousness-raising love story” twist “that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.” Check out the trailer here below.

Us Jordan Peele

Us
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | Digital | DVD
Director: Jordan Peele
Writer: Jordan Peele
Cast: Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | Minutes: 116
Release Date: June 11, 2019

Jordan Peele redefines the genre in bold new ways by weaving in truth and honesty with horror. But horror has acted as a reflection on the society we live in now by terrifying us with the sort of imagery that very few would like to admit is true. With Us we get to see the monsters within us, or at least, the monsters that are capable of living within us.

And now, with the release of the Blu-ray, we get to see how Peele crafted this movie with precision and great detail. Check out our review, plus a look at some of the bonus features that take a deeper look at the production of the film, below.

Rooster in The Secret Life Of Pets 2

Universal Pictures has released the final trailer for The Secret Life Of Pets 2. The first film explored the daily lives of pets while their owners weren’t around. Basically a pet’s version of Toy Story. However, the sequel looks a little more promising now that these pets are going to the farm. No, not that kind of a farm, but the one where it is a huge contrast to the domesticated life they once knew. Here they will encounter new animals and new smells. Check out what sort of adventures await these city animals in the new trailer here below.

Jordan Peele's Us

One of my favorite horror films to come out this year will finally be available for you to own this summer. Jordan Peele‘s Get Out follow-up Us was a huge box office success grossing over $170 million since it first opened back in March.

Now, Universal is ready to give us a reason to be afraid to go into a House of Mirrors or at least question everything we know about ourselves when they release the film on digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD. Check out the full list of special features below.

Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw

The characters of the Fast and the Furious film franchise has prided themselves as being a part of a family. It doesn’t matter if the skin color is different. But when it comes to family by blood that is a bit of a different story. We will get to see a little bit of that play out in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the first spinoff of the franchise.

In it, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) is forced to team up with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) in order to stop Brixton (Idris Elba), an enhanced human, from reclaiming a virus that Shaw’s younger sister (Vanessa Kirby) stole from him. Check out the trailer below.

Us
Director: Jordan Peele
Writer: Jordan Peele
Cast: Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | Minutes: 116
Release Date: March 20, 2019

The phrase “we are our own worst enemy” is a theme that plays a huge part in Jordan Peele‘s Us. The filmmaker’s sophomore effort walks that fine line between horror and social satire. It examines the human condition and uses scares as a vehicle to take a look at the monsters that lurk beneath our skin and what would happen if it were ever to crawl out of it. The end result is another genre-bending film with something to say. While allegories and metaphors have been a part of the fabric of horror films, Peele knows how to deliver that message with terrifying precision. Check out my full review of Us here below.

Wait, What? A Sequel To ‘Backdraft’ Is On The Way, and There’s A Trailer To Prove It

Backdraft 2

It was announced a little while back that a sequel to Ron Howard’s 1991 firefighter drama Backdraft was on the way. But I for one didn’t catch that particular news bit. It’s something that actually sounds like a joke considering how long ago the first movie came out, but according to the calendar we’re still a few weeks from April Fools’ Day.

It’s no joke. Backdraft 2 is indeed on the way. And a trailer has been released to prove its existence, which can be found below. It’s not a completely unrelated movie just using the title to get some more attention, either. This is a direct sequel, which includes original stars William Baldwin and Donald Sutherland reprising their roles.
