‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Review: Emily Blunt Is Perfect In Every Way – And So Is This Movie
It has taken 54 years for a sequel to emerge to Walt Disney’s crown jewel, Mary Poppins, but to say the wait was worth it is an understatement for a movie that is practically perfect in every way — actually make that perfect in every way. Considering the legacy that it is up against, director Rob Marshall’s achievement here is remarkable. Certainly a modern master of the movie musical (Chicago, Into the Woods, Nine, Annie), Marshall has made a film that is reverential to… Read
‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Review: Barry Jenkins’ Artful And Moving Follow-Up To Oscar Winner ‘Moonlight’
It has taken awhile, but finally, James Baldwin is getting an English-language movie that is worthy of this great writer. It took a leap of faith by director Barry Jenkins, who went to Europe in the summer of 2013 and not only wrote Moonlight, which went on to win the Oscar Best Picture, as well as Adapted Screenplay Oscar, but he also wrote an adaptation of Baldwin’s 1974 work If Beale Street Could Talk on a wing and a prayer, as it were.
He had no permission from… Read

Nicole Kidman & Karyn Kusama On Being Creatively Linked For ‘Destroyer’ – The Contenders L.A. Video

Ryan Coogler On How He Applied His Indie Film Approach To The Blockbuster ‘Black Panther’ – Behind The Lens
Ryan Coogler is living the dream. As a kid he loved and watched the Rocky movies and then grew up to actually work with Sylvester Stallone and take the series forward as a director. Also as a kid he read Marvel comics and particularly Black Panther, and would grow up to direct the first Black Panther movie — one that became a box office giant of record proportions, as well as the first Marvel or comic book movie to seriously have a chance at the Best Picture Oscar.
‘Roma’ Review: Alfonso Cuarón’s Childhood Memories Become A Film Unlike Any Other This Year
Ever since winning the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in September, Alfonso Cuarón’s most personal film Roma has been widely, and justly, acclaimed, not only for its content but also for breakthrough cinematic techniques the director has perfected in this wide-screen, gorgeous-looking black-and-white memory play.

‘Roma’ Team On Living Alfonso Cuarón’s Story Of Family And Country – The Contenders L.A. Video
Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma is the story of one woman’s struggle in 1970s Mexico City, but it is also a story about Mexico, and what the country was going through at the time of Cuarón’s youth.
“It was an attempt to come to terms with and try to understand what existence is,” he said onstage recently at Deadline’s The Contenders Los Angeles awards-season event. “How, on the one hand, we’re limited by time and space, but that same time and space molds who we are. It was so… Read
‘Downton Abbey’ Movie Teaser Trailer Is Inviting
There’s not much to see in the new teaser trailer for Focus Features’ Downton Abbey movie, but that likely won’t matter to devotees awaiting the return of the Crawley clan after their departure in 2015 after six award-winning and era-defining seasons on PBS and ITV.
The first look features mostly interior and overhead shots of Highclere that will certainly look fantastic on the big-screen canvas. It comes ahead of the film’s September 20, 2019 release date (Universal… Read
