‘Inferno’ Review: Tom Hanks Saves the World. Any Questions?

Inferno marks the third movie from director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks based on the popular novels by Dan Brown about Harvard professor and symbologist Robert Langdon. They’re all vary degrees of bad — and Inferno is easily the worst of the bunch — but what’s particularly galling about this franchise are the years Howard and Hanks, two of our most dependable filmmakers, have wasted on it. Together they’ve made Splash and Apollo 13; separately their credits include Cinderella Man, The Paper, Saving Private Ryan, Captain Phillips and so many others. How many great movies could they have made, as a team or as individuals, if they hadn’t committed their talents to these cruddy thrillers?

A Step-by-Step Consumer Guide to Good Theater Projection

Rarely a week goes by these days without someone proclaiming movies dead or dying or zombified and feasting on the brains of their victims. (That’s what you get for turning your brain off at the theater!) Mainstream Hollywood has seen better days, but film as an art form is just fine; in a world where Moonlight, The Handmaiden, Arrival, and Loving are all competing for screen space, there’s still life left in movies yet. I’m more concerned about movie theaters, where the presentation of those films seems to get worse every single year.

See If You Can Spot the Very Subtle ‘Doctor Strange’ Product Placement in This ‘General Hospital’ Clip

On paper, I see how this made sense. General Hospital is about a hospital (generally speaking). Doctor Strange is about a doctor. Before he became a magical superhero, Doctor Stephen Strange was a surgeon. Surgeons hang out in hospitals. General hospitals, even. It’s almost too perfect a potential crossover.

Yes, That Is a Poop Emoji in the First ‘Emojimovie: Express Yourself’ Photo

Deadline reports that James Corden and Ilana Glazer of Broad City have been added to the voice cast of Emojimovie: Express Yourself, the animated movie about sentient emoji. Fine. That’s fine. But I’m more interested in the picture that accompanies the article, which features the poop emoji. Smiling. With a bowtie. Hair like the old Kids Crest mascot. Breaking the fourth wall by reaching around the borders of the image with its crap-stained hands. In a children’s film.

War Has Begun in First ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Teaser

Few franchises have had a more successful or impressive reinvention in recent years as Planet of the Apes. The original series, beloved in its day, petered out by the middle of the 1970s, and the first attempt to revive it, in a 2001 film from director Tim Burton, proved disastrous. But the new prequel series, charting the descent of our human world into a planet full of those damn, dirty apes, has breathed new life into the old property. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a late-summer hit in August 2011, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes outgrossed it three years later. (It made about $30 million more in the U.S. and a whopping $220 million more worldwide.)
