  1. That's been left open to interpretation, but good examples of a notable forum moment may include something like a club that didn't go well (Telemachos had his "Untitled Michael Man Movie Over $100M in China" club), or a user and/or scandal that affected the community (like how JamesCameronScholar was busted for having multiple accounts and using them to cheat on forum lists), or a moment where everyone was posting together in the same thread (like when the Harvey Weinstein thread was first opened). It could also be a moment that you were a part of; I plan to vote for the time I made that Samson over Black Panther club, for example. Any funny moment, any serious moment, any memorable moment can and should be voted for here.
  2. I have to be honest. I'm not sure if I'll be seeing this one. I watched the trailer without any volume and the film itself looks pretty dull; in other words, creatively lacking from a filmmaking perspective. The film isn't out yet and I'd love to be wrong, but I'm just not sure about this one.
  3. Morbius Antebellum vs Malignant
  4. Screenwriting really needs to become a much more integral part of the pre-production aspect of tentpoles. There would be much less discontentment if Hollywood valued storytelling just as much as they valued spectacle. That being said, Boyega is definitely in the wrong for calling fans idiots and behaving as poorly as he is.
  5. @CayomMagazine New Journey Pictures has announced that the currently untitled first sequel to Bleach is currently slated for a release in Y9. During Y7, the first Bleach film will be re-released on Netflix as a mini-series.
  6. Well, the novelization of Notes from the Otherspace is really exciting! This is definitely understandable. I wish you good luck with everything!
  7. No big deal! Good luck with everything!
  8. 1. The Grudge 2. 1917 3. Just Mercy 4. Underwater 5. Dolittle 6. The Gentlemen 7. The Turning 8. Portrait of a Lady on Fire 9. Sonic the Hedgehog 10. A Hidden Life
  9. For Your Consideration Best Overlooked Feature Best Hero (Amelia Wren) Best Original Song ("Home to You" by Sigrid) A thrilling film with breathtaking visuals and exemplary technical prowess, The Aeronauts has been shortchanged by its 'experimental' distribution through Amazon, but it'd be a shame to miss out on this. It's the type of epic that would've been a classic in late 90s or early 00s. I might be wrong on this being underseen, but I reallly want other people to give this a try.
  10. I think this can possibly be the next big horror hit. The ball is in the court of the marketing.
  11. I'm really hoping for some surprises this Jan/Feb season. Some very interesting movies are coming out. The Grudge, expansions from Just Mercy and 1917... Yeah. It doesn't feel like your typical Jan/Feb, at least not to me. I mean, I know people throw random things in these months, but sometimes those random things are surprisingly great.
  12. John Malkovich bursts into the log cabin. Malkovich: End of the line, Guthrie! Time to teach you a lesson! Your days of cancelling films are over! Guthrie: Speaking of potentially cancelled films, I have a special announcement! Malkovich: Yes! Banana Fish is back on! Guthrie: Nope! The Croaking of Prince Chrom is back on the Y7 slate! George Mackay: I am honored and grateful that my film is still releasing in Y7! Malkovich: I'm angry! *John Malkovich sprays Glenn Guthrie in the face with pepper spray.* Guthrie: Ouch! Malkovich: Mwa ha ha! *John Malkovich is tackled by a police officer.* Policeman: You have the right to remain silent! Malkovich: Oh. I guess spraying Glenn Guthrie in the face with pepper spray wasn't worth it in the end. Guthrie: Truce? Malkovich: Truce. *Guthrie and Malkovich sing a song number about their friendship.*
  13. Glenn sits down with Naomi Scott, Daniel Kaluuya, and Alfie Allen to discuss Yang. Glenn: And it's now time to talk about the buzzworthy sequel to Yin. Naomi: Yep. Daniel: Yeah. Alfie: Uh-huh. Glenn: So what made you take the lead role, Naomi? Naomi: They used the concept of duality to pitch the sequel to me. Joel stars in Yin, Kira stars in Yang. It's ingenious. Plus, it's a good role. It's a lead role, too. Daniel: I've been taking a lot of American roles, so it's nice to take a British role from time to time. Alfie: This role continues the niche I've started in films like John Wick. Yang releases on June 9th, Y7. There's only one week of IMAX, so be punctual to get the best experience!
  14. Glenn Guthrie sits down with Madeline Carroll, Timothee Chalamet, and Henry Hunter Hall to discuss the subversive vampire film Bloodsuckers. Glenn: So tell me. How does this film subvert expectations? Madeline: I play the traditional "final girl" of horror films--I'm the "good Christian girl"--but the tropes of my character don't matter, and the tropes of other characters don't matter, because the story is really investing! Timothee: What she said. Henry: Usually the "black guy" dies first in a horror film, so I went in thinking that, but my role is much more complex. I didn't expect that. Bloocksuckers is a tense horror film about college students who come to terms with the rising population of vampires on campus. It comes to theaters Y7 TBD.
  15. Glenn sits down with David Mazouz, Willem Dafoe, and Kiersey Clemmons to discuss Tealbird. Glenn: So what are your roles in the film? David: I play Jake, a.k.a. Tealbird, an autistic teen who becomes a superhero after getting struck by lightning. Willem: I play his father. Kiersey: And I play Ms. Virtue, the superhero who mentors Tealbird in secret. Glenn: One question for each of you. Let's start with you, David. How has the film impacted you? David: It's really impactful. I know the film's set during a bad hurricane, and there's been a lot of those recently. It's also a story of triumph over hardship. That's pretty cool. Glenn: Willem Dafoe. You probably get offers left and right--I know you're in Aquarius as well. Why Tealbird? Willem: I was reminded of my role in Sean Baker's The Florida Project. That, and I'm itching to work with Ericson Core. Glenn: Ericson Core? Kiersey: He directed Togo. Before that, the remake of Point Break. It was going to be Robert Zemeckis, but that was changed recently. Tealbird is coming to theaters Y7 TBD.
  16. Glenn Guthrie sits down with Freddie Highmore, Beanie Feldstein, and Donald Glover to discuss Banjo-Kazooie. Glenn: An animated musical! Isn't that exciting? Freddie: I haven't sung in film since August Rush... Beanie: I'm starring in a Richard Linklater film that has to do with broadway somehow, so... I think I can do this? Yeah, I can do this. Yeah... Heh... Donald: *crosses his legs* This is gonna be so much fun... Glenn: So out of all the animate films you could lend your voices to, why this one? Freddie: Banjo-Kazooie is wholesome, it's fun, it's thematic, it's thought-provoking... Beanie: I'm just glad to have the role of Kazooie. Donald: I was pretty good in Gateways so we'll see if lightning strikes twice. Glenn: Let's bring the filmmaker in! *Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4) comes in!* Glenn: So what influenced the decision to make this film a musical? Why not a traditional adventure story? Josh: We want to fully embrace the fact that our source material comes from the 90's. We're inspired by Disney Renaissance musicals like Aladdin and The Lion King, and also films like Fern Gully and Cats Don't Dance. All of our songs are written by the songwriters of Smallfoot. Glenn: How will the film look? Josh: Great question. We will use something similar to the blend of 2D and 3D seen in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. We want every character to look, feel, and act as expressively as possible. Banjo-Kazooie comes to theaters Y7 TBD.
  17. Glenn Guthrie sits down with Luke Pasqualino, Terence Howard, and Rinko Kikuchi to discuss Megalo Box. Glenn: So I understand that this film is the one from our slate that's furthest into production? Luke: That is correct. Glenn: So, um... What's this film about again? *Rinko blinks once.* Terence: Here's the logline. In a future where boxing is augmented by exosuits called Gears, an undocumented man without a name for himself fights in a tournament called Megalonia to discover what real "megalo boxing" feels like. Glenn: That's pretty neat! Who do you all play? Luke: I play the boxer. Sometimes he's called Junk Dog, other times he's just called Joe. Terence: I play Ned, the boxing coach who's torn by his multiple allegiances. Rinko: I play Yukiko Shirato, the CEO of a company that manufactures luxury gear systems. Glenn: What led you to take these roles? Luke: Well, I loved the physicality of my role in Snowpiercer, and I love the physicality in here, too. Terence: The role of Coach Ned, as is written in the film, is really fascinating. The minute you think you've got him figured out, he surprises you. Rinko: I think I'm the only woman in the cast, but the way my role gets implemented is beautiful. Glenn: Well, that's all the time we have today! You can see Megalo Box in IMAX on October 20th, Y7!
  18. Fictional CEO Glenn Guthrie sits in a comfy armchair in the same snowy log cabin from last year's event. He acknowledges the camera and waves hello. "Why hello there! I'm Glenn Guthrie, and I'll be featured in a series of pre-recorded videos where I interview actors from our slate of Y7 films! But first... Let's look at my gingerbread house!" Glenn walks into the kitchen, where a fancily decorated gingerbread house stands on the kitchen counter. "This is my gingerbread house! And to fully understand how good it looks, I must enlist help from a famous celebrity! Come on in, Cardi B!" Cardi B struts in fiercely. "I'm Cardi B! And the B stands for Bread, 'cuz I'm not just Cardi Bread, I'm Ginger Bread!" "That's really neat! Now if you will, please let me now how good my gingerbread house looks." "It's okurrrrrrrrrrrrr!" "Excellent! Now let's see how it tastes!" Glenn Guthrie and Cardi B taste the candy structure. Meanwhile, John Malkovich is hidden in a bush outside of the log cabin, watching them with a pair of binoculars. "I'll get my revenge, Glenn. You cancel my film, I get revenge. That's the way it works with Mr. Malkovich! Bwa ha ha!"
  19. I call this one "pulling a Linus." 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:8-14 Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!
  20. Some of these Oscar movies are gonna need some serious nominations to attract more moviegoers. Bombshell might need Kidman as well as Theron, Robbie, and makeup, and many some others that it has an off chance to secure, in order to strengthen its lackluster box office. Heck, the box office might be doing a number in its chances across the board.
  21. I can't wait to see how everything holds over the Christmas holiday. Stars Wars, Jumanji, and Frozen should, theoretically, have strong holiday holds, as a lot of the general audience still want to see those movies and may not have had the chance yet. I'm really hoping that Little Women is a big success. I know films like Cats deserved it, but I don't like it when films are spectacular bombs, and I have a feeling Spies in Disguise might flop harder than some are expecting. In the meantime, here's to great platform openings for 1917 and Clemency, and to good, prosperous expansions for both Uncut Gems and A Hidden Life!
  22. The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were both cinematically vibrant, while Rise of the Skywalker, unfortunately, is cinematically sterile. C
