Robert Eggers To Direct ‘The Northman’ Starring Alexander Skarsgard
  |  @   |  

For two films, Robert Eggers has terrified us with supernatural period pieces in the form of The Witch and The Lighthouse. But it looks like he will be stepping away from that for his next film. But that doesn’t mean he won’t have a stellar cast to work with.

According to new reports, he will be directing The Northman, a grounded revenge story, that will star Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Bill Skarsgård, and reunite him with his Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy and Lighthouse star Willem Dafoe. More on the report below.

‘The Lighthouse’ Trailer: Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe Engage In A “What” Duel
  |  @   |  

You seriously have to love what A24 is able to put out time and time again. The studio pushes the boundaries of cinema with their collection of films, which are directed by visionaries and great storytellers.

Take for instance Robert Eggers, the man behind this year’s The Lighthouse. Shot entirely in black and white, this maritime fantasy horror is also a dark comedy that delves into the madness that two lighthouse men, played by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, go into when they find themselves seeing strange and mysterious things on a remote New England island in the 1890s.

A24 has released a new trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.

Movie Review: Aquaman
  |  @   |  

Aquaman
Director: James Wan
Writers: David Leslie, Johnson-McGoldrick, Will Beall
Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman
Studio: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 143 Minutes
Release Date: December 21, 2018

Aquaman may be one of the most iconic superheroes in the DC lineup, but the character himself has a reputation for being one of the silliest superheroes. Furthermore, his introduction in Zach Snyder’s Justice League did not do him any favors. That being said, Jason Momoa‘s portrayal was a radical change for the one-dimensional pasty white hero. Instead, we got something that truly represented the character’s struggle of living in two worlds while acknowledging his overall cheesiness.

This helped lay the foundation for his own standalone film. Directed by James Wan, Aquaman sees the return of Momoa playing the aquatic eponymous hero in a globe-trotting superhero epic. By embracing many of the title character’s foibles and cheesiness, the film turns out to be one of the best DCEU entries to date. And while that is an easy bar to cross over, its world-building and willingness to have fun expands the cinematic universe and opens the door for the DCEU to explore bold and new possibilities. Check out my review of Aquaman here below.

Julie Andrews To Make A Splashy Entrance In James Wan’s Aquaman
  |  @   |  

A Julie Andrews cameo in Mary Poppins Returns would make a lot of sense since the singer and actress was the star of the original film. However, Andrews confirmed that she would not appear in the follow-up starring Emily Blunt as to not take away her spotlight. So Andrews has settled for a different kind of role. A very unlikely one. According to a new report, Andrews will be lending her voice talents to James Wan‘s Aquaman. More on the report below.
