We all love The Great British Bake-Off (or, as it’s referred to in the States, The Great British Baking Show), and considering the competition show’s massive popularity even amongst people who can’t boil water without catching something on fire, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came up with a mockumentary version. Enter Cook Off!
Ah, the holidays. Cookies, sparkly lights, Christmas trees, your parents leaving you at home with a hot babysitter you decide to impress by whacking her ex boyfriend over the head with a baseball bat… You know, the usual wholesome stuff you get up to during the Christmas season, at least according to the Better Watch Out Red-Band trailer.
Paint It Black, based on Janet Fitch’s novel, stars Alia Shawkat as an artist whose hard-partying ways come to a halt after her boyfriend dies and his terrifying mother, Janet McTeer, blames her for his death. It’s the kind of pulpy, Hitchcockian film you don’t see much of these days, and the trailer looks incredible.
For a lot of young folks, Michael Keaton is their first introduction to a cinematic Batman, his version of the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie still considered one of the most lauded and fun interpretations of Bruce Wayne to this day. But even the best actors need to know when to call it quits, and Keaton recently explained what drove him to say no to Batman 3.
When it comes to natural disaster movies, the bigger, the better. San Andreas was delightful in its boorish stupidity, The Perfect Storm is a stone-cold classic, and don’t even get me started on how excited I am for Geostorm. Man against nature is the oldest plot in history, which is why it’s about darn time we saw Josh Brolin play a firefighter.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an undeniable sci-fi classic, the O.G. one-of-us-in-this-room-isn’t-human narrative, which is probably why it’s been remade so many, many times. The original 1954 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney inspired the 1956 Don Siegel film, which was then remade in 1978, in 1993, and agin in 2007 with Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman (The Invasion). So it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. is making plans to reboot the story for the modern era.
Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is already the director’s most successful film to date, with a $76 million worldwide take so far on a budget of $34 million. But the movie has yet to open in a bunch of countries, including Germany, Brazil, Japan, and more (it only just had its Australian premiere, courtesy of George Miller). So, to get more bods in theater seats, Universal has released the entire opening bank heist and car chase scene from the movie on YouTube. Even if you’ve already seen the movie, you gotta watch this again. And turn your volume up.
We haven’t seen too much of the Han Solo movie, except for all that hot goss about why Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the project, but the set photos have been trickling in. Yesterday, a couple pictures surfaced from the set of our young Han (Alden Ehrenreich), Chewbacca, and Woody Harrelson’s mysterious character together and in costume on set.
Amongst all the Spider-Man: Homecomings and Transformers: The Last Knights and Wonder Womans, it’s good to see that the cinema still has room for nice, self-contained little films about eccentric painters and their odd, funny relationships with their normie friends. Final Portrait casts the inimitable Geoffrey Rush as expressionist painter Alberto Giacometti and Armie Hammer as his art connoisseur buddy James Lord, who agrees to pose for Giacometti for what he believes to be his last work.
