Mortal Engines trailer header

Director Christian RiversThe Mortal Engines hits theaters next month. The film adaptation of Phillip Reeve‘s young adult novel of the same name takes place in a dystopian future where civilization has been reduced to cities and metropolises living on large motor vehicles.

While the genre may be a bore, the plot for the film does give way for some big screen entertainment. And a new featurette takes a look how all of this came to be. Check it out, below.

Shrek and Puss In Boots

The Shrek films were a surprisingly funny satirical take on the fairy tale genre. But it has been eight years since we saw the lovable titular ogre, Fiona, Donkey, and Puss in Boots in an unlikely adventure that would feature sword swinging, medieval tropes, and humor.

Now it looks like Shrek, along with the Puss in Boots spinoff, are getting a reboot from Despicable Me creator Chris Meledandri. More on the report, below.

Fast and Furious Hobbs and Shaw

The Fast and Furious franchise may have its longevity but it’s not without its share of problems. The film has had behind the scenes issues with its cast ranging from a feud between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson to a feud between Johnson and Tyrese. There is even a concern about how the female members of the cast don’t have enough of a role in the films.

However, the latest troubles don’t involve any of the actors. It involves a lawsuit about Hobbs and Shaw, the first Fast and Furious spinoff, and is between Fast and Furious producer Neal Moritz and Universal. According to the latest report, Moritz claims that Universal has breached an oral agreement they had made. More on the report below.

Glass starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis

M. Night Shyamalan is not one for traditional storytelling. So when he inserted that twist in Split, it showed that the world of Unbreakable was much bigger than we originally thought. That’s because it was revealed that Split took place in the same universe as Unbreakable, and the story would continue on with Glass.

Now Universal has released the newest trailer for Glass starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis in a film that could change the superhero genre as we know it. Check it out below.

Movie Review: First Man

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.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

The House with a Clock in Its Walls
Director: Eli Roth
Writer: Eric Kripke
Cast: Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, Kyle MacLachlan, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Sunny Suljic
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | Minutes: 104
Release Date: September 21, 2018

The House with a Clock in Its Walls is Eli Roth‘s first foray into children’s films. Based on the 1973 novel of the same name by John Bellairs, the film is a first-time collaboration between the filmmaker and Amblin Entertainment.

Normally, the spirit of Amblin films and Roth’s horror influence would make for an interesting combination. But the result is an odd concoction of mixed feelings and a film that, at times, can feel like it is at war with itself. Check out the full review below.
