Nicolas Winding Refn is currently in post-production on his next stylish thriller, The Neon Demon, which hits theaters this year and boasts an incredible cast, including Drive star Christina Hendricks.

Liam Neeson to Star in ‘The Commuter,’ His Fourth Film With Director Jaume Collet-Serra

Liam Neeson is to director Jaume Collet-Serra what Leonardo DiCaprio is to Martin Scorsese. Neeson has become the action-dad-icon muse for Collet-Serra, who has just cast the leading man in yet another action film. The Commuter marks the fourth collaboration between Neeson and Collet-Serra, following Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night — all of which form a sort of informal trilogy of films in which Neeson plays a man burdened by his past who battles criminal elements while rocking a seriously sweet leather jacket.

Previously, the second Captain America film had received the highest marks at test screenings, which sounds about right considering that it’s the best MCU film to date. Could Civil War be even better?

‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Review: A Masterful and Meditative Retelling of the Trial of the Century

The O.J. Simpson trial was a cultural milestone for an entire generation. Just as our parents and grandparents remember where they were when JFK was assassinated, many of us can recall with distinct clarity where we were when Simpson notoriously fled the police in a white Bronco with a gun to his head. The media coverage was breathlessly sensational, but there is nothing sensationalized about The People v. O.J. Simpson, the flagship season of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story, which is undoubtedly the very best thing Murphy has ever produced.

Director Mary Harron Reuniting With ‘American Psycho’ Screenwriter for Manson Family Movie

Mary Harron knows a few things about the struggles of being a woman in Hollywood. Like many of her fellow female filmmakers, Harron hasn’t had the easiest time. After making an assertive debut with I Shot Andy Warhol, she went on to helm the critically-acclaimed American Psycho, and since then has stuck mostly to television, where she’s directed episodes of shows like Big Love and The Following, and the HBO film The Notorious Bettie Page. At long last, Harron is finally developing a new film project, one that reunites her with American Psycho co-writer Guinevere Turner, the duo once again exploring the darker, more murderous side of humanity.

‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Director Colin Trevorrow Will Shoot on Film, Not Digital

In the ongoing battle between film and digital (Film v Digital: Dawn of Justice), there’s one man who will not capitulate to your contemporary technology. Joining the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder, Colin Trevorrow will also remain committed to shooting on film, as the director says he will shoot Star Wars: Episode IX on the classic format instead of digital.

New ‘Batman v Superman’ Images Feature Brooding-Man v Staring-Man, Plus Wonder Woman

Judging by images alone, you would think that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is actually just a clothing catalogue for privileged vigilantes and alien superheroes. There’s so much pensive staring and gloomy brooding and handsome, chiseled faces in nice jackets and expensive button-ups. All that’s missing is a caption with a price tag and one-click ordering.

Zack Snyder Received Christopher Nolan’s Bat-Blessing for ‘Batman v Superman’

Christopher Nolan delivered a solid trilogy of Batman films (okay, two really good Batman movies and a competent sequel we begrudgingly accept) and inspired a wave of gritty blockbuster imitators. His Dark Knight trilogy gave us the best Batman movies since Tim Burton’s time with the iconic superhero, which made fans feel a little skeptical about Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck’s plans for the character. In an attempt to soothe your fears — however reasonable and totally justified they may be — Snyder has revealed that he received Nolan’s blessing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. So that’s something, right?

‘The Chickening’ Is a Bonkers Remix of ‘The Shining’ That Will Melt Your Brain

The Chickening played the festival circuit over the past year, totally blowing the minds of audiences at Sundance, Fantastic Fest and more with its completely bonkers and inventive “remix” of footage from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Integrating chicken costumes, silly hats and faces, and the best possible manipulation of Shelley Duvall’s eyeballs you’re likely to see in your lifetime, The Chickening is an ode to insanity that you need to watch immediately.
