A publicist for Luke Perry says the "Riverdale" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" star has died. He was 52.
The Oasis - the virtual-reality universe in which much of "Ready Player One" takes place, and where the population of its dystopian world escapes from the misery of real life by donning digital avatars - is, in the words of its creator, "full of the things that people love." (Or, as one wag sitting behind me at a recent screening of the new Steven Spielberg-directed sci-fi thriller observed, with a snort, "Some people.")
Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson have been here before, of course, 15 years ago this summer, when they starred in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation." But it's illuminating to see how much has changed in the critical waters between that film and their newest, Wes Anderson's mostly acclaimed "Isle of Dogs," which was co-written by Sofia's brother and cousin, Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman.
NEW YORK - Frenzied "Frozen" fans: chill. Your prayers for a faithfully well-executed Broadway rendition of your favorite animated movie musical have been answered.
In ways both thematic and circumstantial, Michael Haneke's "Happy End" suggests a sequel of sorts to the Austrian filmmaker's "Amour." Like that Oscar-nominated 2012 film, which explored the gray area between coldblooded murder and assisted suicide as an act of love, Haneke's latest effort also stars Jean-Louis Trintignant, once again in the role of an elderly man named Georges.
Purists who cherish Beatrix Potter's picture books about country critters with human traits may want to pass on "Peter Rabbit," a smarty-pants update on the Edwardian-era "The Tale of Peter Rabbit."
A struggling New York musician returns to her Midwestern home after a romantic breakup in "Becks," the first fiction feature from co-directors Daniel Powell and Elizabeth Rohrbaugh.
LOS ANGELES - On Super Bowl Sunday, Netflix threw a deep ball that few other entertainment companies have ever attempted.
A fable about a real-life hero from the early days of Islam, the animated adventure "Bilal: A New Breed of Hero" was inspired by the life of Bilal ibn Rabah (A.D. 580-640), a warrior and follower of the prophet Muhammad.
Turkish-German director Fatih Akin's gripping "In the Fade" feels urgently relevant to the present moment. Set in contemporary Hamburg, it's the story of a woman whose husband and 6-year-old son are killed in a bombing. But here, the tired screen stereotypes about terrorism are reversed, with immigrants of Muslim background as the senseless crime's innocent victims, and the far-right movement its perpetrators.
Movie review: 'Hostiles' delivers entertainment and a message‘Hostiles’ delivers entertainment, as well as introspection
If he really does retire, and “Phantom Thread” is Daniel Day-Lewis’ final film performance, embrace the manner in which he practices his craft.
Set in the immediate, hazy aftermath of 9/11, "American Folk" is an unlikely fusion of road trip and musical - a travelogue dotted with folk songs, some traditional, some not. Sung mainly by real-life folk musicians Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth, the songs lend the film an emotional resonance that the forced dialogue often struggles to achieve.
The 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the 16-year-old grandson of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, is told with solid style and suspense in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World."
First thing's first: Though it features a character named "P.T. Barnum," "The Greatest Showman" is in no way a factual account of the life of the celebrated 19th-century circus founder and huckster. In fact, you'll have to completely set aside any unsavory stories you may have heard about the real-life Barnum, because this one is played by the ever-charming Hugh aJckman. Resistance is futile.
With its title tongue-in-cheekily evoking "I, Claudius," another epic tale of madness and debauchery, the dramatic comedy "I, Tonya" revisits - with verve, intelligence, scathing humor and more than a touch of sadness - the bizarre 1994 attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, by goons associated with the camp of Kerrigan's athletic rival, Tonya Harding.
A welcome disturbance in the Force, Rian Johnson's "The Last Jedi" is, by wide measure, the trippiest, scrappiest and most rule-breaking "Star Wars" adventure yet.
"The Post " is kind of like the Yankees of movies. A Steven Spielberg directed film about the Pentagon Papers starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and a murderer's row of all your favorite television character actors (Jesse Plemons! Bob Odenkirk! Carrie Coon! Sarah Paulson!)? It doesn't even see…
The pleasures of art, music, food, natural beauty and sexual awakening are evoked and celebrated in "Call Me by Your Name," an almost sinfully enjoyable movie that both observes and obeys the languid rhythms of a torrid Italian summer.
The basic idea is intriguing: A woman, upset that after several months the local police have not found the killer of her teen daughter, pays to advertise on three billboards that call out the police on their lack of progress.
“Coco” is a bold and colorful animated dazzler of a movie with a story of family that goes straight to the heart of young and old alike, which means it’s the kind of movie that Pixar used to make.
This is a time when movies arrive for the whole family to enjoy, like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," as well as prestige pictures for awards season.
Author A.A. Milne brought comfort to the people of England following World War I, telling the gentle stories of a bear who loves honey and his forest friends, including a piglet, a donkey and a tiger named Tigger.
“Only the Brave” is the kind of movie that it is impossible to not like. I dare you to not fall for this tale of firefighter heroism and tragedy.
As if on cue, "Only the Brave" - a deeply moving drama about firefighters - arrives in theaters, just as the catastrophic wildfires in Northern California seem to be winding down.
The story must have proven irresistible to Tom Cruise: The tale of Barry Seal is dangerous, charged with high-flying action and utterly ridiculous — and it’s all true.
It is possible to like a film and be disappointed by it, and “It” is that kind of movie for me and I imagine for other fans of Stephen King’s book who may have expected too much.
