Tales From The Box Office: How Red Tails Ended Lucasfilm's Pre-Disney Era With A Whimper

(Welcome to Tales from the Box Office, our column that examines box office miracles, disasters, and everything in between, as well as what we can learn from them.)Lucasfilm will always be tied directly and most closely to "Star Wars," one of the biggest, most beloved, and influential franchises in cinematic history. But let us not forget that the studio had other movies under its belt, including the "Indiana Jones" movies and "Willow." As most of you reading this likely know, Lucasfilm was event...

The Proud Family: Louder And Prouder Trailer: The Disney Channel Original Animated Series Gets A Streaming Revival

It's been over 20 years since "The Proud Family" kicked off its initial run as the first Disney Channel original animated series. With a theme song by Solange Knowles and Destiny's Child, the show first aired from 2001 to 2005, crossing over with "Lilo & Stitch" at one point and culminating in "The Proud Family Movie," which acted as the series finale.

WandaVision's Agatha All Along Picked Up A Grammy Nomination, As It Should Have

Agatha Harkness has successfully bewitched the world. This is no big surprise coming from a sorcerer of her background, especially because "WandaVision" star Kathryn Hahn gave a magnetic breakout performance from the very second she stepped on screen. The scene-stealing sorceress managed to snag a spin-off series before the year even came to a close! Her ascendancy was inevitable and we all pretty much saw it coming — just not in the form of a gilded gramophone. Agatha's insanely catchy theme so...

Upcoming Blumhouse Movies To Keep On Your Radar

Did you know Blumhouse produced "Tooth Fairy"? As in the 2010 fantasy comedy where Dwayne Johnson played an overly aggressive hockey player who got turned into the tooth fairy? Suffice it to say, Jason Blum's production company has come a long way since then (as has The Rock for that matter), evolving into the go-to source for inventive horror movie series and original, daring social thrillers thanks to its low-budget model. It's even branched out into TV with its "Welcome to the Blumhouse" stre...

Jamie Lee Curtis Would Like To Be In The Next Exorcist Movie, Thank You Very Much

Fresh on the heels of getting paid fat stacks to hang out in a hospital bed for an entire movie (which, good for her), national treasure and gift to the universe Jamie Lee Curtis has her eye on another horror property. The main protagonist in the "Halloween" franchise, Curtis solidified her reputation as a scream queen with starring roles in films like "The Fog," "Prom Night," and "Terror Train," despite famously disliking horror movies. She's a certifiable horror icon, but her run as Laurie Str...

‘Needle in a Timestack’ Review: Leslie Odom Jr. and Cynthia Erivo Are Stuck in Parallel-Reality Puzzler

Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr. (“Hamilton) has been nominated for two Oscars. Tony winner Cynthia Erivo (“The Color Purple”) has been nominated for two Oscars. Writer-director John Ridley won one Oscar for “12 Years a Slave” and deserved another for his L.A. Riots documentary “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992.” Any film would be fortunate […]

This Year’s Tony Awards Show Was In A Difficult And Delicate Position

The Biggest Surprises And Shocks From The 2021 Emmy Awards

Last night's ceremony was the least-surprising Emmy Awards in quite some time. Of course "The Crown" swept the drama awards. Of course "Ted Lasso" (mostly) swept the comedy awards. Of course popular, hip genre shows like "The Mandalorian" and "WandaVision" didn't make a dent in the major categories. The running joke among TV fans online was that voters clearly only watched a handful of (the whitest) shows before voting.But that doesn't mean there weren't surprises. And shocks. And disappointment...

Needle In A Timestack Trailer: Orlando Bloom And Leslie Odom Jr. Star In A Sci-Fi Brain Bender

Oscar winning screenwriter John Ridley ("12 Years a Slave") has been relatively quiet for the past few years, but he's getting back in the mix with a twisty new science fiction film. The movie has a solid cast – Leslie Odom Jr., Cynthia Erivo, Orlando Bloom, Frieda Pinto, and Jadyn Wong – but a truly terrible title: "Needle in a Timestack." What on Earth is a "timestack," you ask? Check out the trailer and maybe you'll be able to glean the answer for yourself. (But ... uh ... probably not.) Need...

One Night In Miami Is Coming To The Criterion Collection

"One Night in Miami" was one of the better Oscar contenders last year in my very humble opinion, and now that opinion is being validated by none other than Criterion as they announced the Regina King-directed film as part of their December 2021 slate of releases. The title will hit Criterion Blu-Ray on December 7, 2021, and will come packaged with a bunch of bonus features, which is what you'd expect for any Criterion title. The Whole Package Criterion's release of "One Night in Miami" will feat...

Is The New ‘Exorcist’ Trilogy a Very Bad Idea in the Making?

We’ve known for a while now that David Gordon Green was set to make a new Exorcist movie. But today word broke that there are actually three new Exorcist movies on the way – a new trilogy that will bring back original star Ellen Burstyn. Hamilton‘s Leslie Odom Jr. is also on board, playing the father of a possessed child. This news was met with a heavy dose of skepticism, and that’s not really surprising. The original Exorcist was a huge hit and remains an all-time classic, but the sequels – qu...
