STILLS AND SPILLS

 

Loose lips sink ships, but this week’s crop of leaked set photos and movies in development are only building anticipation for what’s coming soon (and sort of soon) to a theater near you.

 

NEW PHOTO FROM MEN IN BLACK SPIN-OFF

 

 

The as-of-yet untitled new entry in the Men in Black series may still be in the early days of shooting, but the sight of stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson decked out in the signature MIB uniform is more than enough to get fans excited.

 

The two friends are no strangers to fighting aliens after teaming up in Thor: Ragnarok, and will no doubt bring more than just some comically-sized umbrellas to the paranormal project.

NEW PHOTOS FROM CHARLIE’S ANGELS REBOOT

 

 

If the latest images are any indication, Elizabeth Banks‘ new Charlie’s Angels reboot is going to stand out from previous versions even on style alone.

 

New angel Kristen Stewart, flashy in a tri-patterned sweater and dyed pixie cut, is mission-ready as she runs and guns across the storefront set in pursuit of some yet-to-be revealed baddies.

 

NEW PHOTOS FROM WONDER WOMAN 1984

 

 

The cat’s out of the bag on the new villain of the 1984-set Wonder Woman sequel: Kristen Wiig will portray the feared and feline Cheetah, Princess Diana’s most persistent and agile foe.

 

New set photos show the character struggling against an unknown attacker, possibly just before she discovers her catlike super-abilities.

 

AMY WINEHOUSE BIOPIC IS IN DEVELOPMENT

 

 

Audiences will be headed back to black as Monumental Pictures prepares to bring soulful singer Amy Winehouse‘s life story to the silver screen.

 

The late artist’s meteoric rise and tragic demise were documented in 2015’s Amy documentary, and the new film promises to bring further insight into the life and times of the smooth-singing legend.

 

WRONG TURN REMAKE IN DEVELOPMENT

 

 

All roads lead to the theater for horror buffs, because the cult favorite Wrong Turn franchise is getting a much-needed face lift.

 

The timeless tale of cannibals vs. unsuspecting travelers will undergo a modern update with a twisted take on the original formula, while iconic villain Three Finger may or may not make an appearance.

NEW THIS WEEK: SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN, AND MORE

PLUS RENTALS AND TV

 

LARGER THAN LIFE

 

Some movies are built on grounded, small performances set in carefully recreated real-world settings. These are not those movies. Sit back and enjoy the best of the big, the loud, and the unusual.

 

 

How far can hustle, ambition, and skill take you when moral compromise is on the table? Sorry to Bother You answers with an otherworldly, genre-busting roller coaster filled with colorful characters like Detroit (Tessa Thompson), featured in this exclusive clip.

 

 

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’s title may be self-explanatory, but the joyous familial fantasy has a lot to say about mothers, fathers, daughters, and friends. Plan a sing-along and get into the ABBA-powered groove.

 

 

Children are the future – a dystopian one in this case. Amandla Stenberg leads a cast of super-powered young adults caught between those who would use them and those who would hide them away in Darkest Minds.

 

 

You’ve seen them battle villains, monsters, and adolescent angst in the shadow of older superheroes; now you can finally watch Teen Titans GO! to the Movies. This light-hearted family adventure is titanically packed with superheroic action, laughs and cameos.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Ghosts and goblins meet rest and relaxation as the Hotel Transylvania 3 crew take to the sea for a family-friendly vampiric vacation that’s anything but normal.

TV

NEW THIS WEEK: ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB, AND MORE

PLUS RENTALS AND PRE-ORDERS

 

WEIRD WORLDS

 

The quantum realm. The dark web. Dark money groups. The heroes of this week’s new releases are taking trips to the other side, and their mileage may vary.

 

 

Ant-Man’s (begrudgingly) back in action with his newly suited partner-in-justice in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The variably-sized heroes will need a giant-sized helping of teamwork as they shrink, grow, and shock their way to victory against the mysterious, phase-shifting ghost.

 

 

The dark web is a hive of illegal, immoral, and unspeakable activity, and once you’re in, you may never get out. The stakes are higher, the truth is more twisted, and the danger is all too real in Unfriended: Dark Web.

 

 

Following the money has never been this hard – or this important. As the unseen forces that guide our electoral process do everything in their power to remain in the shadows, one documentarian is determined to shine the light on their Dark Money.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

In Sicario, he got his revenge. In Sicario: Day of the Soldado, haunted hitman Alejandro walks the long road to redemption, where friends and enemies sometimes share a face.

SCIENCE BITES BACK IN JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

YOU WON’T LIKE THEM WHEN THEY’RE HUNGRY

 

 

What could have more bite than Shark Week, induce more heart palpitations than Lobster Fest, and grab the attention of more kids than the Puppy Bowl? Dinosaurs of course! And it’s time we started counting down to next week’s release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in up to 4K UHD on Vudu. Luckily, you don’t need to wait for the next extinction-level event to get the movie. You can pre-order it now and get a $3 movie credit to spend as you please after release day. Once you’re finished enjoying all the spine-tingling, human-munching thrills of course.

 

Bro, do you even science?

 

 

In the newest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, the “fallen kingdom” isn’t just the once beautiful Isla Nublar. As lava ravages the cloned-dinosaurs’ island home, the kingdom of humanity must reckon with the consequences of creating the genetically-engineered beasts. As one returning character warns (in a scene-stealing cameo), it may already be too late to close the Pandora’s Box of Velociraptors, Mosasauruses, and hybrid horrors leftover from Jurassic World.

 

 

Jurassic Park isn’t the first franchise to deal with experiments gone apocalyptically wrong. Just as John Hammond’s scientists ignored the warning signs in their pursuit of a new race of revived dinosaurs, the negligence of biotech firm Gen-Sys ignites a full-scale interspecies war in the Planet of the Apes series. The pros and cons of ape world vs. dinosaur world (take your stinking claws off me you damn dirty dinos!) are up for debate, but the message is clear: meddling in the gene pool can have unintended results.

 

 

But why should monkeys and lizards have all the fun? In the Resident Evil films, it’s humans that are subjected to the unregulated experiments of a shady genetic research corporation, and the resultant zombie army causes enough trouble for six films worth of gory genetically modified chaos.

 

 

And why have hundreds of medium-sized mistakes when you can have a handful of very, very big ones? The Godzilla franchise is home to countless skyscraper-sized monsters (or Kaiju) including moths, aliens, and-of course-dinosaurs. Not all are the direct result of human tampering (unless you count disturbing their centuries-long nap in the middle of the ocean), but when they’re not created by our nuclear warfare, genetic experimentation, or corporate greed they tend to be bailing us out from those same problems. The humanity-Kaiju relationship status is “It’s Complicated.”

 

 

And just because a scientific disaster isn’t Indominus Rex-sized doesn’t mean it’s not a problem. Just ask the Szalinski family, who are consistently being shrunk, blown up, and otherwise inconvenience by dad Wayne’s ill-advised inventions in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movies. It’s all family fun until somebody ends up in the vacuum cleaner.

 

MORE RAPTORS, MORE PROBLEMS

 

 

So, what have we learned? Probably nothing. But for now, just leave the super-science to the “professionals,” and pre-order Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to get your $3 movie credit before the offer (or the world) ends.
