‘The Girl on the Train’ Trailer: The Thriller That Shocked the World

We’re so close, guys. So close to the end of summer movie season and the start of the fall, when the weather cools down and the movies start to get interesting again. I don’t know that The Girl on the Train is going to be an awards contender, but it certainly looks like a juicy thriller.

To Slowly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before: In Defense of ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’

The poster for Star Trek: The Motion Picture is so dramatic. The faces of William Shatner’s Captain Kirk, Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock, and Persis Khambatta’s Lieutenant Ilia refracted through a rainbow spectrum of light. That image promises excitement beyond imagination. Adventure! Passion! Every color under the rainbow!

New ‘Ghostbusters’ TV Spots Introduce a Female Slimer

That TV spot for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters is called “The Slimers.” And if you watch through to the end, you see Slimer driving a car (ghosts can drive?) with a female Slimer. I guess that makes her a Slimette? I don’t know. Either way, she has hair and bright lipstick. Ghosts have hair? And lips?

Stanley Kubrick’s Daughter Insists He Didn’t Help Fake the Moon Landing

There are a lot of conspiracy theories about the 1969 Moon landing; one of the wackiest is that the footage “from the Moon” was actually recorded on a soundstage with help from film director Stanley Kubrick, who was, as the theory goes, uniquely suited to faking images from outer space because of his role directing the great science-fiction picture 2001: A Space Odyssey. (As the theory also goes, 2001’s great special effects were merely the research and development phase of the moon landing chicanery.)

2016: The Worst Summer Movie Season Ever?

July 4th: A time for cookouts, fireworks, and big movies.

There are July 4th flops (The Lone Ranger, Wild Wild West) but there’s also a dozen films that opened with at least $50 million in domestic grosses.

Mace Windu Is Still Alive, At Least According to Samuel L. Jackson

As a whole, the Star Wars prequel characters were not a particularly well-liked group. You had Anakin Skywalker, the mopey, whiny young Jedi who hated sand. There was Queen Amidala, the blank royal who endured Anakin’s moping and whining and hatred of sand. And there was Jar Jar Binks who talked like a moron and later basically helped the Palpatine seize control of the galaxy. Not exactly candidates for the Mount Rushmore of Star Wars heroes.

The Biggest Blockbusters of 2016 Are Also the Ones With the Best Reviews

Do critics matter? Do people actually care about film reviews? These questions are almost as old as cinema itself, and they seem to get ask anew every couple of months, whenever a critically acclaimed movie flops or a critically drubbed one becomes a massive success. At least as bigger movies go, the conventional wisdom is that critics don’t really make an impact. Backed by enormous multimillion dollar marketing budgets and huge brand awareness, the studio’s tentpole releases are often considered critic-proof. Supposedly it’s smaller, specialty releases that can benefit from (or be hurt by) film critics.

Watch Deadpool Take Over the Japanese ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer

X-Men: Apocalypse opened in the United States in May; after five weeks in theaters it’s starting to wind down its domestic theatrical run. (Last weekend it grossed an estimated $2.4 million on about 1600 screens.) But while the movie is slowly vanishing from theaters here, it’s yet to even open in certain international markets, including Japan. Over there, Apocalypse doesn’t debut until August, so the film’s promotional campaign continues in full force on that side of the Pacific. That includes this latest trailer, in which the star of Fox’s other (and far more financially successful) 2016 superhero movie shows up to promote his more famous colleagues.
