The full list of nominees for the 2017 Academy Awards are out, and while there’s plenty to celebrate about this year’s batch of Oscars contenders, there are also plenty of surprises. And some of those surprises are of the not-so-good kind that involved leaving out our favorite movies or filmmakers of 2016. Below, the staff of ScreenCrush picked out the biggest Oscar snubs of 2017, along with a few of the most pleasant shockers from this year’s list of nominees. The winners of all the awards will be announced on Sunday February 26 at the 89th Academy Awards.
The best part of each new month is the stuff that gets added to Netflix. The worst part of each new month is the stuff that gets taken from Netflix. And this month’s list of expiring titles is actually pretty extensive; there’s a Ridley Scott double bill (Black Hawk Down and the theatrical cut of Blade Runner), Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (Bogus!), the terrific Polish drama Ida, and the surreal horror flick Escape From Tomorrow, which was shot on the grounds of Walt Disney World without the company’s permission.
The short version: There’s lots of new stuff coming to Netflix this May, including the returns of Netflix Originals Bloodline and Grace and Frankie. The second Adam Sandler Netflix movie arrives (that’s The Do-Over, with David Spade), and on the not-made-by-Netflix side of things you’ve got the recent movie version of Goosebumps with Jack Black (which was actually pretty great), Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, and the powerful satire Pleasantville.
We know that Ben Affleck’s Batman will make an appearance in this August’s Suicide Squad. Both Affleck and his stunt double were seen on set in a scene where Batman is chasing down The Joker and Harley Quinn...
Yesterday came news that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would officially be released on digital HD on April 1 and on DVD and Blu-ray on April 5. With all the special features listed, the only detail on the deleted scenes was that deleted scenes would be included (“Plus deleted scenes!”). Well, today we have some specifics including a complete breakdown of what deleted scenes to expect.
With the exception of those new photos the other day, we haven’t seen much on director Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. While most summer movies have at least provided a teaser trailer by now, we still don’t know much about this new ghost busting adventure...
After three straight years of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting, the Golden Globes invited previous three-time host Ricky Gervais (2010-2012) to return for the 2016 awards show. Said Gervais back on January 1, “Because I can see the future, I’d like to apologise [sic] now for the things I said at next week’s Golden Globes. I was drunk & didn’t give a f---.” So, did Gervais wind up having anything to apologize for this year? If you missed it, you can watch his 2016 Golden Globes monologue above and decide for yourself.
Cult comedies that attempt to regroup for a sequel many years after the original film often have mixed success. You’ll probably find few people who like Anchorman 2 or Dumb and Dumber To as much as the originals. But, that hasn’t stopped Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson from returning for Zoolander 2 and, despite the odds, this actually looks really funny.
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a brand new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
