“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” continues its history making run at the box office

Over the holiday weekend, audiences once again set off in record numbers for a galaxy far far away as Star Wars: The Force Awakens continued to dominate at the box office. It’s going to be the same sort of thing in the weeks to come, but Christmas was certainly a[...]

Christopher Nolan to make his next films the World War II blockbuster “Dunkirk”?

Consider this just a rumor at the moment (though it seems like we’re getting more confirmation as the day goes on), but it’s still a fairly juicy one for sure. Apparently, word is spreading that Christopher Nolan’s next mystery project, scheduled for release in 2017, is going to be a[...]

Updated Golden Globe predictions

Believe it or not, the Golden Globe awards are coming, sooner than you think. Yes, it seems like just yesterday the nominations were announced, but now the actually ceremony is only a few weeks away (less than three weeks now, in fact). As such, it’s definitely time to update my[...]

As promised, I’m back writing again about filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s eighth cinematic outing this week. Whenever a new movie of his opens, it’s really an event, so this is no exception.
