Louisa May Alcott‘s 1868 novel Little Women is a timeless coming-of-age novel that continues to remain relevant, even to this day. As such, the classic is the subject of another cinematic adaptation.
This time it comes from Oscar nominee Greta Gerwig, who brings the novel to life with Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Eliza Scanlen, and Florence Pugh as the March sisters, all of whom are “determined to live life on her own terms.” Check out the full trailer below.
It is almost funny to think that studios are releasing films based on toys and board games, but some properties are so popular that not adapting them into a film would be a huge missed opportunity. And things are about to get exciting for the Barbie film.
Yes, there will be a film based on the iconic doll, and it has Margot Robbie playing the central figure. Now the film has just snatched up two very credible writers. According to new reports Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach will be partnering up to write the script for the film. More on the report below.
It looks like Greta Gerwig has found her next directorial effort following her Academy Award-nominated Lady Bird. According to new reports, Gerwig is in talks to direct a retelling of the coming of age novel Little Women.
The film looks to also feature a star-studded ensemble cast, with Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Florence Pugh, and her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet all in talks for roles. More on the story below.

There is plenty of visually pleasing aesthetics to look at when seeing a film like Wes Anderson‘s Isle Of Dogs. The director’s latest stop-motion animation effort has all of his signature symmetrical, camera-panning style and deadpan humor. It also happens to be one of Anderson’s most politically charged films by addressing some very serious themes that affect us today. Unfortunately, none of that takes away from the fact that there is some appropriation going on, with the added white savior factor, and that the Japanese characters are playing supporting roles in a film set entirely in Japan.
Therein lies one of the greatest problems of this film. How much of it is Anderson paying homage to a culture by using the beautiful aesthetics and Akira Kurosawa inspirations, and how much of it is his signature being written over a culture? It’s the paradox that just keeps on giving. Check out my full review here below.
Stop-motion animation is a very taxing medium, but the pay off can be glorious if it is well-executed. Wes Anderson, the filmmaker known for quirky out of the box filmmaking, returns to stop-motion with Isle of Dogs. In the film, dogs are supposedly carriers of a disease and are all banished to a garbage dump known as Trash Island.
Now we are getting a closer look at how this film came to be from those who voice the characters in a newly released cast interviews featurette. The only thing is the cast is not speaking through their respective human forms, but through their cuddly canine characters. Quite a fun way to push a movie and get everyone interested.
