Why It’s A Great Option For Brie Larson Fans: Throughout the years, writer/director Joe Swanberg has gotten even more comfortable with his loose, improv-heavy filmmaking style. Continuing to gain the trust of his actors, the Drinking Buddies filmmaker has assembled some strong acting talents in his recent projects, and that includes his 2015 film, Digging For Fire.

Once upon a time, movie release dates were pretty firm, and you could expect them to happen when announced. But in the era of COVID-19, things are far from being set in stone. So as their film prepares to get a new trailer, Ryan Reynolds and the cast of the upcoming comedy, Free Guy, seem to be trying to get one step ahead of the game with their pitch-perfect response to the movie’s delay.
The Film’s Title Sequence Was Constructed In A Way To Make The Audience Curious About The Killer
The opening title sequence from Seven will forever go down as one of the most memorable and exciting of the ’90s, and even though John Doe wasn’t revealed until the final act of the 1995 thriller, director David Fincher and title designed Kyle Cooper, set the introduction up in a way that would make the audience curious about that the killer they wouldn’t actually meet for more than 90 minutes.
Speaking with Empire in 2010, Cooper revealed that he and Fincher wanted to come up with something so evil that the audience would remember it, and judging by its legacy, the decision of having scratched frames, a remixed version of Nine Inch Nails‘ “Closer,” and all those quick cuts paid off.
Darren Lynn Bousman, of course, knows a thing or two about the Saw franchise. He’s directed several of the early sequels, including Saw II, III, and IV. After taking a bit of a hiatus from the franchise, he’s back to his old stomping grounds with Spiral. Bousman was recently asked if the film deals with any of “life’s biggest questions,” which brought him to what philosophy Spiral might come to grips with.

What Is The Uglies Series About Again?
It’s particularly exciting to see Uglies finally moving forward with a movie adaptation because its subject matter actually feels more relevant right now than it has ever been. (I’ll get to that in a moment). For myself, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve heard or seen the name Uglies, and has remained in the fabric of my humble beginnings with the YA genre for over a decade. So if you’re asking yourself, ‘Wait, what was Uglies about again?’ Here it is…
Moranis has mostly stayed out of the spotlight over the past few decades, so this isn’t exactly the way we would have preferred to see him making headlines again. But thankfully, this won’t be the last we hear from him in the near future. Moranis is set to reprise his role as Wayne Szalinski in Shrunk, a sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. It was a surprise to hear that he would return to play the famous character but apparently, the idea appealed to him.
Hocus Pocus’ unexpected success is impressive for a few different reasons. The film was first released in 1993, so it doesn’t exactly have a lot of buzz around it. It’s also widely available for fans to rent or buy and stream on various digital platforms. Plus, on October 1, the film aired on Freeform as recently as October 1st, and the Hocus Pocus event included Bette Midler live-tweeting.
Another weekend, which means another bout of the Internet referring to Chris Pratt as the ‘worst Chris.’ Given there are four major Chris’ in superhero movies and in our collective hive mind (Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine and, of course, Chris Evans) I suppose one had to be the “worst Chris.” However, this weekend, the latest round of calling Chris Pratt “worst Chris” feels a little unfair, given Chris Hemsworth essentially did the same thing.
