‘Deadpool’ Director Tim Miller Leaves ‘Deadpool 2’

One of the biggest Hollywood success stories of the past few years was Deadpool, the R-rated superhero movie from 20th Century Fox. From dead in the water to surprise box office smash, Deadpool became a perfect parable for young filmmakers who have a story to tell and won’t let failure stand in the way of getting their movie made. Unfortunately, though, life doesn’t always adhere to clean narratives. Despite all the setbacks that Deadpool director Tim Miller faced along the way, it turns out there was only one thing that could cause him to throw in the towel: success.

Director Chad Stahelski on ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ and the Curse of the Sequel

The much-anticipated follow-up to Keanu Reeves’ action-packed John Wick, John Wick: Chapter 2 has some big shoes to fill. The first John Wick was a welcome surprise: an action-thriller with some masterful stuntwork and gun handling directed by an actual stuntman, about a former assassin who goes on a killing rampage to avenge his dog was a delicious stew of an action movie. The sequel picks up just a short time after the first leaves off, and we see Wick heading to Rome and ready to take out some more bad guys. Although sequels are always chancy prospects, director Chad Stahelski is optimistic about the next chapter living up to the first.

‘Aquaman’ Will Be in the Spirit of ‘Romancing the Stone’ and ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’

The ages-old query of “So, who were your influences on the film?” still appears regularly in interviews following a big-name movie’s release. But in recent years, directors have started to name the films they drew from before the premiere as a way of drumming up anticipatory buzz. At the Star Wars Celebration in London earlier this year, Episode VIII director Rian Johnson name-checked Bridge on the River Kwai, Three Outlaw Samurai, Letter Never Sent, and 12 O’Clock High as points of reference for the next Star Wars picture. The initial public response went along the lines of “lol what the hell are you talking about,” but eventually cooled into “Alright, can’t front, that sounds pretty awesome.”

Here’s Our First Look at Adam Driver in Martin Scorcese’s ‘Silence’

Martin Scorcese’s Silence, which pretty much everyone was completely unaware of until it announced a release date coming up later this year, has a mysterious plot, and a hugely talented cast. With Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, and Adam Driver in starring roles, it would be very difficult for this movie to be a miss. We’ve seen stills of Neeson and Garfield so far, but Driver’s look has been kept under wraps — until today, when Paramount released a new still.

New Amazon Prime Instant Video Releases: November 2016

Amazon is giving you plenty of things to be thankful for in November, adding dozens of new film and television titles to their streaming library — would it be too much to ask for an add-on program that takes the agony out of deciding what to watch, though? For instance, it’s a heavy first world burden to choose between the first season of AMC’s The Night Manager and binge-watching all of the Rocky movies (yes, even Creed). Before you know it, you’ve already wasted half of your Saturday browsing before you end up rewatching The Addams Family for the billionth time.

Those Flirty Foghat Boys Still Got It

These guys were impressive on Saturday night at Rock the Square. Foghat has been mastering that slide guitar sound since 1971, and although band members have come and gone over the years, they keep finding talented guys to step up and they haven't lost any of that signature sound.

And one of them asked for my number backstage. Did he get it?
