Next 3 Surprising Comedies: 'The Upside,' 'What Men Want,' 'Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral'
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly star in Holmes & Watson as the legendary detectives in a funny and surprising take on the team's pairing. Really, though, it's more about the chemistry between the actors, who previously starred together in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers, as it is about any sort of mystery. (By the way, Reilly also appeared in a cameo role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which featured Ferrell in the starring role.) Two upcoming comedies offer new different, surprising takes on material that has been previously told. The third is a sequel that may be the final installment in a long-running series and may offer a big surprise in its resolution. Here's what we know about three movies that we hope will amuse us...

Next 3 DC Superhero Movies: 'Shazam!,' 'Birds of Prey,' 'Wonder Woman 1984'
James Wan's highly-anticipated Aquaman has exceeded all expectations, establishing Jason Momoa as a superhero on both land and sea.

First 'Hellboy' Trailer Arrives Just in Time; Here's Everything We Know
Following two Hellboy movies from Guillermo del Toro, the demonic but heroic comic book character is getting a cinematic reboot with more involvement from creator Mike Mignola this time around.

Comics on Film: 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' Weaves an Incredible Web of Humor, Vibrancy and Heart
Live-action adaptations of superhero characters are often looked at by most moviegoers as prime examples of what the characters can achieve when adapted into a new medium. Most embedded comics fans, however, know that animated offerings - whether they're on film or television - can often prove to be more truthful to the spirits of the characters, along with having the potential to be extraordinarily imaginative in their execution. Over the past 25 years, superhero animation has evolved steadily from a moment of renaissance exhibited visibly by 1992's Batman: The Animated Series. It should come as little surprise that the single theatrical outing that series and its creators produced - 1993's stellar Batman: Mask of the Phantasm - is often...

New Indie While it didn't get nearly as much media coverage as Jonah Hill's directorial debut Mid90s, Skate Kitchen (Magnolia Home Entertainment) tackles a similar milieu - troubled teens create a chosen family with their fellow skateboarders - and does so from a female point of view. Documentary filmmaker Crystal Moselle makes her fiction debut, blending real-life skateboarders making their screen debuts alongside Jaden Smith (fitting in comfortably, having seemingly shed his nerves from After Earth).

Comics on Film: What the 'Black Panther' Golden Globe Nomination Could Mean for Comic Book Movies
You don't have to be a hardcore comic book fan to understand the fact that, almost universally, comic book movies just don't get taken seriously as dramatic works of art. Even the most artistically-conscious and technically proficient movie, invested into by major studios and visionary directors, will be looked down upon by some cinematic observers because its source material comes from the medium of comics. That's why the recent announcement of Black Panther as a nominee for Best Picture in the drama category at the forthcoming Golden Globe awards is so momentous. It's been a decade since a comic book movie was thought of as a legitimately artistic entry into the long-running cinematic canon, when director Christopher Nolan brought together his world-class...

Next 3 Action Thrillers: 'Miss Bala,' 'Cold Pursuit,' 'Alita: Battle Angel'
Produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Christian Rivers, Mortal Engines (above) revolves around large mobile communities known as "traction cities." Based on the first in a popular series of novels by Philip Reeve and sumptuously designed, the action-adventure is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where it covers a lot of ground in telling its tale of courage and daring.  What lies ahead for action movies in the new year? We've picked out three upcoming thrillers that all look very promising.   Miss Bala Gina Rodriguez stars as an American woman who is forced by authorities to go undercover in a Mexican gang in order to clear her name of the crime the gang forced her to commit.

The highly anticipated film, which will take place more than 10 years before the MCU began, has been in development since 2013 and finally flies into theaters in early 2019.  The second trailer for Captain Marvel has just premiered, and it fleshes out more of the plot, shows off some Skrulls, including the evil old lady we saw in the first trailer, and depicts young Nick Fury as a cat-loving agent who's not yet become the tough-guy Avengers Initiative leader we know him as.

We're now just a couple of short weeks away from the first early, public screenings of WB's Aquaman, directed by James Wan, starring Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, and based on the long-running DC Comics character. For years, Aquaman as a character has had to battle against perceptions from a public that loves expressing misguided opinions, painting him as a hero who is weak, whose powers are useless, whose villains are forgettable, and whose stories can't possibly have any relevance since they take place out in the ocean. It doesn't stop with the comics-agnostic.

'Green Book' Explores Racism and Friendship in the 1960s; Here's Everything We Know
The road trip is a time-honored cinematic tradition that is renewed with a very real sense of racism and danger in Green Book. Rather than a dry historical treatment, however, director Peter Farrelly infuses the film with wry humor and a welcome consideration of the roots of the differences that can divide us.   Remaining focused on the two lead characters bolsters the film immeasurably, since we get to know them intimately, even as they get to know each other. The relationship is initially a bit cold and chilly, but it warms up quickly. Learn more about Green Book below, then watch the two clips and the trailer. What's the story? The movie follows Italian-American bouncer Tony Vallelonga, known as Tony Lip, who takes a job as a chauffeur for Don "Doc"...

'Fantastic Beasts' So Far: Comparing the Stories and What They Mean for the Wizarding World
This past weekend marked the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the highly-anticipated new chapter in the so-called Wizarding World series, which was defined by the Harry Potter films from 2001-2011. Two years ago, the series was handed off to a new lead in Eddie Redmayne's magizoologist Newt Scamander - referenced in the Harry Potter books as well as in at least one of the films - resulting in the original Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Comparing the two films brings to mind a lot of very immediate differences, including the different strategies both take in implementing larger series lore, as well as overall tone and general aims that both stories try to take things. In this piece, we thought we'd take a look at how both...

Comic Book Legend Stan Lee, 95, Passes Away
Comic book writer, editor and publisher Stan Lee has passed away, according to The Hollywood Reporter and multiple other sources. He was 95 years old. It would be impossible to understate Lee's influence upon multiple generations of comic book readers and creators, as well as movie lovers and filmmakers. He has left a lasting mark on popular culture, thanks to the textured and beloved characters he created and/or developed, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Ant-Man, The Mighty Thor and Iron Man. His characters were often superpowered, yet they were also recognizably human, dealing with issues in the real world and their own personal flaws.

Widows flips the book, so to speak, smashing stereotypes and placing a strong group of women at the heart of an intense crime drama. The film has received very positive advance reviews ahead of its wide opening on November 9. Here's everything we know about Widows. What's it about?

'The Color Purple' Will Hit the Big Screen Again in Musical Form; Here's Everything We Know
As long as you're going to remake a movie, you might as well do something different with the material. That's why musical remakes are so much more interesting than straight rehashes. They tend to follow the original movie being turned into a Broadway musical with that stage production then being re-adapted for the screen. We've seen it recently with Hairspray and The Producers but music-infused remakes used to be a pretty common occurrence in Hollywood. Now Steven Spielberg is getting in on the fun. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director, who is also currently at work on a redo of the musical West Side Story, is revisiting the Alice Walker novel The Color Purple, which he previously turned into an Oscar-nominated motion picture back in 1985 (the...

While segments of Star Wars fandom continue to try and advocate for a spin-off film featuring Obi-Wan Kenobi between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, comics-based movie fans were given one hell of a surprise this week when we learned that actor Ewan McGregor would be jumping into superhero film for the first time, specifically into the DC Universe.

Ewan McGregor Joins 'Birds of Prey'; Here's Everything We Know
Margot Robbie will reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming Birds of Prey; she will also serve as a producer. Her character was very much her own woman; smart, strong and sassy, she did whatever she felt was best for herself in any particular moment.

Ewan McGregor, who most recently played a heroic family man in Christopher Robin (above), leads the latest casting news, which will find him turning toward the dark side. We have details about that, along with everything else we know, below. Who are the Birds of Prey? In DC Comics, the superhero Black Canary first appeared in 1947.

After his achievement with last year's record-breaking adaptation of Stephen King's It, Andy Muschietti should be able to do anything his heart desires -- once he delivers the sequel, It: Chapter Two, of course.

'Clueless' Is Being Remade; Here's Everything We Know
Whether it's Clue or Clueless, Hollywood is revisiting all the modern classics. How can something so unique and beloved as Clueless be picked for a redo? Well, even though the original is the quintessential '90s teen comedy, complete with a ska song on the soundtrack, it's already a remake of -- or modernized take on -- Jane Austen's Emma. So, why not give it another update? Deadline reports that a Clueless remake is in early development at Paramount, but details are so scant that it's not clear if the movie will allow for the original stars to reprise their roles from the 1995 version. Still, what is known from the initial announcement sounds pretty promising, so there's no reason for fans to start buggin'.  Here's everything we know about...

Comics on Film: 'Wonder Woman 1984' Moves to Summer 2020
In a new demonstrated confidence from Warner Bros. for the forthcoming Wonder Woman 1984, the follow-up to last year's DC Comics-based hit starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, the release date for the sequel has been pushed back from November 2019 to June 5, 2020. It will be only the second DC Comics-based film since 2013 that will be opening in the prime summer category, since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened in March of 2016, Suicide Squad in August that same year at the end of the summer season, and Justice League premiered in November 2017. The first Wonder Woman film came out in June of 2017.

Next 3 Major Horror Remakes: 'Pet Sematary,' 'Hellboy,' 'Grudge'
Opening in only two theaters in New York and Los Angeles, the new version of Suspiria (above) earned $179,000, which gives it the highest per-theater average of the year. Obviously, Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of Dario Argento's classic thriller has intrigued moviegoers beyond the core horror audience. Indeed, it should be fascinating to see if that continues when Suspiria opens across the country on Friday, November 2. Guadagnino's version is longer and more expansive than Argento's original, though no less shattering. How will future horror remakes approach the original? Here are three major, upcoming projects that promise to unsettle and disorient even seasoned viewers. 'Pet Sematary' The first trailer for the remake (above) touches on familiar...
