We all knew Get Out was one of the best success stories of the year, but did you know it is actually, as of now, THE most successful movie to open in 2017? Jordan Peele’s sharp study of modern racism disguised as a horror flick is the most profitable movie of the year, with a return on investment of 630 percent.
Kids these days, always plugged in to their smartphones and laptops and Instagrams, constantly suffering from the compulsion to record every aspect of their lives. For a superhero, this is probably a bad idea, given the whole secret identity thing and all — but our new Peter Parker is very much a millennial, and he’s going to vlog this whole thing if it kills him.
“My Spider Sense is tingling” is the most classic of Spider-Man catchphrases — but you won’t hear it in the new Spider-Man: Homecoming. The newest version of our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is different than his filmic predecessors in many ways, a big one being his lack of the traditional Spidey Sense, which alerts him to the presence of dangers he can’t immediately see. Homecoming director Jon Watts explained that the decision to leave his sixth sense out of the movie was very much on purpose.
Last week, Michelle Rodriguez posted an Instagram praising the eighth Fast & Furious movie, but also mentioning that the series’ treatment of its female characters might force her to sit out the next round, if the situation doesn’t improve. F. Gary Gray later responded to her criticisms, saying that he thought the latest film had a tons of strong roles for women, proving that he kiiinda gets it, but not really. Rodriguez has a point. And Vin Diesel, for one, is going to stick up for her.
With Kong: Skull Island out of the way, Legendary and Warner Bros.’ monster reboot series turns its attention to Godzilla once again. The giant lizard gets one more solo outing before its big battle with the king of apes, and we’ve already got quite a cast lined up and prepared to run away screaming from this creature, as Godzilla tradition dictates. Today, one more member, Get Out’s Bradley Whitford, has joined the cast.
The nunsploitation film seems to be making an odd comeback recently — with even Paul Verhoeven catching the fever and announcing his lesbian nun movie Blessed Virgin — and nothing looks more promising than a ton of comedy greats banding together to make a raunchy, hysterical version of Bocaccio’s The Decameron, replete with clergy members throwing around f-bombs and nuns throwing around turnips.
For Star Wars, a series that has become a franchise built largely upon nostalgia, returning to some of their greatest hits within their movies has become par for the course. Sure, we were introduced to something like seven completely new planets during Rogue One, but that movie still checked all the boxes: cool female protagonist, Jedi lore, Dark Side, Death Star. The Han Solo movie is also going to bring us to some completely new territory, but would it be a Star Wars movie without a visit to a certain desert planet?
With Transformers: The Last Knight, Michael Bay has created an alternate universe in which giant robots in disguise have been helping humanity through every historical conflict you can imagine. In a video yesterday, Anthony Hopkins’ voiceover explained that they’ve “been here forever,” but exactly WHY Earth is so important to them remains a mystery. The Last Knight will explore a little of that history, from King Arthur to Japanese samurai, while also making a quick pit stop in the 1940s.
After a bit of a rocky start involving an injury suffered by star Dylan O’Brien, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third installment in the series based on the YA novels, is set to begin production in South Africa very soon. And a new character is joining the fray: Walton Goggins has boarded the film, so I guess that means we all have to watch it now.
It’s time to dust off your MultiPasses, Luc Besson fans: his wild sci-fi adventure The Fifth Element is coming back to theaters for a special anniversary re-release, and in 4K, no less. The 1997 movie is just about as weird as you can get with sci-fi, and it’s become something of a classic. But that’s not all — those of us who are excited for Besson’s new movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which hits theaters this summer, will get to see a sneak preview of it attached to The Fifth Element’s re-release.
