Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra,
Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Football and Chola in 'Los Reyes.'
The latest collaboration between Chilean directors Ivan Osnovikoff and Bettina Perut won the runner-up prize when premiering at the Dutch documentary giant.
It's a case of four wheels good, four legs even better in Los Reyes, Chilean duo Ivan Osnovikoff and Bettina Perut's appealing study of stray dogs and skateboarders sharing a downtown Santiago park. Built four-square around the considerable screen presence of inseparable best-pal canine co-leads Chola and Football, the German co-production is low on incidents but high on atmosphere and unassuming charm.
Having its world premiere in the main competition at Amsterdam's IDFA, the pair's eighth directorial collaboration took the runner-up special jury award and ranked high among the most viewed titles in the industry videotheque, the latter a reliable harbinger of a busy festival career. Art house play in receptive territories is also potentially in the cards, though bookers and patrons should be made aware that the measured style of Los Reyes — no music, no voiceover, no explanatory title-cards — veers toward the austere.....Read more The Hollywood Reporter

The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second film in the Harry Potter prequel series. Set in 1927 in Paris, it follows the rise of Johnny Depp’s Grindelwald and how the forces of good are trying to stop him. This movie is packed to the brim with plot points, characters and setups that you may have missed a lot of the smaller and nuanced moments. For instance, a lot of fans and critics were crying foul about how Jacob came back and that his explanation felt a little weak. But a line in the first film actually backs up his statement! J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books and these prequel films, actually revealed in 2016 that Grindelwald is a shapeshifter and that Colin Farrell’s Percival Graves never existed, which was a little tease for the opening of the second film! At one point,
Grindelwald mentions the phrase “for the greater good” and only book fans will understand that reference. It’ll definitely make you look at Dumbledore in a different light! There are two names in the film, Rosier and Travers, that will also sound familiar to those familiar with all the minor characters in the Potterverse. We have our first canonical look at the philosopher’s stone in Paris and reveal the truth about who Flamel really was. We see the Blood Oath scene, which tells us why Albus can’t fight Grindelwald and the actors in that scene may be familiar to some. Grindelwald gets a peek into the future and shows his followers the second world war. But the war has another important meaning to Grindelwald himself. We get an easter egg nod to the Black family and see the Ministry of Magic using more traditional forms of letter delivery. Finally, was J.K. Rowling teasing the Aurelius reveal two years ago?? Maybe!

Screening in competition at this year’s Venice Film Festival, “Killing” is veteran provocateur Shinya Tsukamoto’s first venture into the samurai genre. Made, like most of Tsukamoto’s films, on a tiny budget and tight schedule, it does not attempt the scale of classics like “Seven Samurai” (1954) or “Yojimbo” (1961).
Instead, Tsukamoto’s camera moves in close to capture the weight of the swords, the razor lethality of the blades and the swirling chaos of the action. Some of the fight scenes, with their slowly gathering menace and swift death, recall Akira Kurosawa’s afore-mentioned masterpieces, but Tsukamoto’s overall approach is more intimate and less heroic. As he has said in interviews, the film is the antithesis of the classic samurai movie, in which good battles .....Read more on THE JAPAN TIMES
