Ari Aster’s feature directorial debut Hereditary just landed in theaters last weekend following its Sundance premiere, and it’s already claiming success, boasting A24’s biggest opening weekend at the box office with $13 million dollars (though it stopped just short of getting an iconic F-grade CinemaScore). Coming hot off his debut’s success, …

It would be a complete oversight to deny that Hiro Murai is currently creating some of the most fascinating, provocative images in television and music videos.

Gasps could be heard around the world this morning from Wonder Woman fans seeing Chris Pine in a tracksuit in a new image from the set of Wonder Woman 1984. Not only was it the sound of happiness of seeing Steve Trevor back and also wearing a very becoming outfit but it was also the sound of stunned amazement that Steve Trevor is somehow still alive and has not aged in the sequel.  Another image shared at the same time on social media features Gal Gadot as the DC superhero, in her Diana Prince alter ego form, standing in front of a bunch of TVs. One of them features a close-up of J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) in Dallas. Another is a screenshot of Christie Brinkley taunting Chevy Chase from National Lampoon’s Vacation.  Welcome to WONDER…Read More

“All these camera moves are really scrambling my eggs!” Pow! Zam! Boom! In honor of the Annecy Film Festival for animation this week, I’m featuring a few animated short films that are worth watching. Next up is a fun one titled Rebooted, a 3D animated short film made by Sagar Arun and Rachel Kral from Ringling College of Art and Design. The concept of this involves a retro comic book superhero being introduced to the gritty, dark “rebooted” version of himself. It’s an amusing riff on Batman and all the current DC superhero movies with dark, brooding characters. It’s not the best short ever, but it’s a very clever idea executed well. Original description from Vimeo: “Owl Guy, a retro comic book superhero, is suddenly introduced to his rebooted counterpart.” Rebooted is co-directed by filmmakers Sagar Arun and Rachel Kral. This was created at Ringling College of Art and Design. Featuring music by Corey Wallace. All three characters are voiced by …
