While we might be in the thick of blockbuster season, but soon every studio in town will be jockeying for Oscars, and one movie that’s already gaining quite a bit of heat is “Call Me By Your Name.” The breakout film of the Sundance Film Festival, Luca Guadagnino‘s drama tracks the romance between an older man and a teenager that unfolds over a picturesque summer, and it had everyone talking.

We’re in the midst of the big summer holiday in North America, with Canadians coming off July 1st and Americans gearing up for July 4th. So, it’s the perfect time for the first trailer for an art dramedy about an eccentric painter, right? Well, the folks behind “Final Portrait” sure think so. Starring Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy, Tony Shalhoub and Sylvie Testud, and directed by Stanley Tucci, the film is “a charming, modest” look at the unique artistic process of painter Alberto Giacometti, as he hits down to compose a portrait of art-lover James Lord.

This is a very fluid category at this stage of the game, but if you are wondering why some are listed as “potential” instead of “likely” remember that insight and intel are everything.  Continue reading 2018 Best Actor Oscars Predictions at The Playlist.

When “Cars 2” was released in 2011, Pixar was riding high as the rare studio that had a reputation for making sequels that were even better than the originals (the previous summer “Toy Story 3” had been released and became only the third animated film to ever be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar). But “Cars 2,” which replaced the gentle sweetness of the first film with cockamamie spy movie theatrics, was more baffling than bewitching, seemingly fueled less by an interest in continuing the story of the characters than adding new items to the franchise’s unstoppable line of merchandise.

It was just two weeks ago when Disney/Pixar dropped the latest trailer for “Cars 3,” but perhaps they looked at the tracking numbers and reception to the promo and decided they need to give the picture another boost. Yet another trailer has landed for the animated sequel, which goes gritty for its third installment. The new look at the movie brings some light to go along with dark, as the story follows retirement-ready Lightning McQueen as he takes on a new racer, and looks to make one last stand.

Brave” was actually pretty successful (and better than most people think), “The Good Dinosaur” has its defenders, but the “Cars” franchise is among adult animation fans, by some distance the least loved of all the Pixar movies. And rightly so: the 2006 original is sort of fun in places, while the second is a dull spy parody that leans far too heavily on Larry The Cable Guy’s Mater.

Ben Wheatley, no doubt, has a twisted sense of humor, just watch “High-Rise,” or, even, “Kill List” for further proof of his subtle dark comedy in the most twisted of situations. His latest film, “Free Fire,” is an ultra-violent action-comedy that features a barrage of bullets, zingy one liners and, yes, even a little bit of slapstick added to the mix.
