DC area film buffs giving you cinema news and in depth reviews for all the latest movies. There is no discrimination on movie type here. We cover everything from the biggest blockbusters to the smallest indie films the way you want, unlike the snooty critics across the world.
If there was a silver lining to the cancellation of Marvel's Netflix shows, it was the possibility of Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and others just making the move over to Disney+. The streaming service seemed like the obvious place for these characters to re-emerge, with Kevin Feige integrating them fully into the MCU for the first time. But if that's what you were holding out hope for you
It’s that time of the year again: the Arrowverse crossover. Each year it gets bigger and bigger! The first crossover, "Flash vs. Arrow" event pitted Barry and Oliver facing off against each other. The next crossover event “Heroes Join Forces” introducing us to Vandal Savage (remember him?) and helped set up the Legends of Tomorrow as well. The following crossover, “Invasion!” had the key
We're happy to offer DC families a chance to "trip a little light fantastic" with Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and more.
SYNOPSIS: In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss.
After weeks of casting rumors on Disney's The Mandalorian series, the full cast has finally been revealed. While most of it is confirmation of what we already knew, there are a few new faces including one that makes me especially happy.
Pedro Pascal has been confirmed to star as the title character, a gunfighting Mandalorian on the galaxy's Outer Rim. Also confirmed are the
We've kinda gotten away from posting movie clips here, as I try to cut down on showing too much. But this clip from Aquaman is pretty awesome, so it makes the cut. The scene puts Nicole Kidman's Queen Atlanna in a huge fight, and while that's pretty cool in itself to see the refined actress get down to action, it's made even cooler when you learn that it was all shot in one continuous shot.
While other challengers have definitely emerged, Pixar remains the gold standard for animated hits. Any time a new film is announced it's a very big deal, especially when it also marks the start of a potential new franchise. Disney has announced Pixar's 2020 film will be titled Onward, and it will have an all-star cast providing the voices.
Chris Pratt, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, and Julia
Normally the arrival of another Marvel/Netflix TV series is cause for celebration, but now it comes mixed, perhaps to a greater degree, with sadness. Netflix is teasing January 2019 for Jon Bernthal's return in The Punisher season two, and that likely means the series will be canceled days later. You can see the tiniest glimpse of the new season in the below video.

A lot of imagination went into building the post-apocalyptic steampunk world of Mortal Engines. In this bleak vision of the future, about 1000 years after a mega-weapon destroyed most of civilization, the world's greatest nations essentially turned themselves into giant demolition derbys. Countries are now mobile, and the most powerful of them exist in giant tank-like structures with cities
Perhaps it would be a good idea to stop checking into movies with "Hotel" as the first word in the title. Hotel Rwanda, Hotel Artemis, and now Hotel Mumbai. Dev Patel stars in the film based on a real-life terrorist event, and the harrowing first trailer has arrived.
Directed by Anthony Maras, Hotel Mumbai features Patel as Arjun, a family man employed as a waiter at the prestigious Taj Mahal
Margot Robbie's Birds of Prey cast just got a lot funnier. Comedian and Netflix superstar Ali Wong (of comedy specials Hard Knock Wife and Baby Cobra) has joined the all-girl superhero film in a supporting role that I'm guessing will be comic relief. Hard Knock Wife would be a killer supervillain name, tho. Missed opportunity.
Wong will take on the role of an associate to Detective Renee
