Film & TV News: April 24


  • Inhumans has been unceremoniously yanked from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe slate, which means essentially nothing when all is said and done. Instead of waiting five or six years for the Inhumans movie, we’ll just have to bite the bullet and wait six or seven.
  • The 2016 Independent Film Festival Boston begins this week. Stay tuned for reviews of Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, the delightfully odd-looking Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and many more.
  • A drove of new trailers premiered this week, which is great news if you’re a lazy Motion Stater who can’t be bothered to assemble an actual News post. Check out our formidable copy-and-pasting below.


First up is the sci-fi jaunt Equals:

Damon returns to Bourne in Jason Bourne:

De Niro returns to the ring in Hands of Stone:

Cranston returns to the drug world in The Infiltrator:

Then there’s The Founder:

And Woody Allen’s ten-millionth film Café Society:

And the seventh trailer, fittingly, is the remake of The Magnificent Seven:

If we’re really lucky the marketing team behind that last one will find cute little ways to work seven into everything, much like we had last year with The Hateful Eight. That means it’s a good movie, right?

In Cinemas

The Jungle Book is still cleaning up at the box office, but stiff competition arrives in the form of Captain America: Civil War in two weeks. If you’re in for some less blockbustery fare we suggest hunting down Miles Ahead.


Odds are you’ll be watching the return of Game of Thrones this evening, but don’t forget about The Night Manager by the time Tuesday rolls around. Both are undeniably worth it.

On Netflix

Ferngully 2: The Magical Rescue hits the streaming service on May 1st, so mark your calendars.
