All Aboard The “Dark Ark #1” On The Wednesday Run

Let’s take a walk back to the Biblical flood.

Noah placed animals two by two into his giant ark in order to save the world’s indigenous animal population from the impending doom.

Gorillas, lizards, tigers, bears and mice. The wily raccoons that make a mess of your garbage cans. And even the ornery Canada Geese that make a mess of your local park with their poop.

Yep. Noah saved them all.

Except the unicorns, who somehow didn’t get “flood” memo.

But what of the more unnatural creatures of the world? Who would save them?

Out today, Dark Ark #1 begins to tell their tale!

TIFF 2017: Beast

beast-credit-kerry-brown

Beast wasn’t in my original TIFF plans. Extremely limited press screenings forced me to blow up my schedule twice, but I saw the main things I wanted. Beast was a pick-up, from promising new filmmaker Michael Pearce. In the film, a woman is forced to defend her lover when he falls under suspicion for a series of brutal murders. While the film’s twists yank it a tad too far from the realm of believability, it’s a tense thriller and a quality debut.

TIFF 2017: Zama

Zama, the long-anticipated return of Argentinian director-extraordinaire Lucrecia Martel, is an astonishing work of colonial examination and technical perfectionism.

‘It’ holds off challengers to remain #1 at the box office

The biggest horror movie in decades continued to perform this weekend, holding off two new releases that could barely make an impact at the box office. Here’s what went down:

The Losers Club

 

It remained on top of the box office for the second week in a row, bringing in an estimated $60 million. That number is incredible, as it shows only a 51% drop from its opening weekend debut, meaning that It is appealing to mass numbers and not just the usual horror movie fans. The film’s total sits at $218.7 million, making it the biggest September release in film history.

Jamie Lee Curtis joins the cast of Halloween

Mark October 19th, 2018 down in your calendar. That’s when Blumhouse’s Halloween arrives in theatres, featuring a script from Danny McBride and director David Gordon Green, and starring the one and only Jamie Lee Curtis, who revealed in a tweet that she’d be returning to Haddonfield and her iconic role as Laurie Strode.

Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween,”

The new Halloween film will allegedly pick up after the first two films. John Carpenter is rumoured to be providing the score.

TIFF 2017: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Martin McDonagh’s likes his comedies like his coffee: black. Actually, I have no idea how McDonagh takes his coffee, if he takes it at all. But boy does he have a way with finding the humour in very dark situations. His first two features were uneven, but both In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths unearthed surprising depths among their myriad quirks. With his latest, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, McDonagh has created a richer film, bubbling with tension, stark satire and even a hint of that elusive trait redemption.

‘American Assassin’ and ‘mother!’ challenge ‘It’ at the box office

It’s going to be as big weekend at the box office, as two new releases are looking to take down last week’s massive number one. Will either of them be able to do it? Here’s our prediction:

American Assassin is based on Vince Flynn’s 2010 novel about a 23 year old orphan who is enlisted by the CIA to become a black ops recruit. The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton, Sanaa Latham and Taylor Kitsch, all of whom, apart from Keaton who is currently riding a career resurgence, can’t open a film, even one with a built-in audience thanks to the success of the book. The film will have to settle for a second place showing with $12.5 million.
