Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ Gets a Sequel Just in Time for Sundance

Al Gore is one of those people who gets me thinking about legacy. When Gore’s time on the earth comes to a close, how will he be remembered? As a solid vice president who lost one of the most hotly disputed elections of all time? Or as a champion of environmental conservationism? From the outside, it certainly appears that Gore is angling for the latter. Just this past weekend, it was announced by Paramount Pictures (via Variety) that Al Gore has been working on a sequel to his 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth and that the film was set to be the opening night film at next year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Fox Animation and ‘Trolls’ Director Making a ‘Puff the Magic Dragon’ Movie

Dragons seem to be one of pop cultures fantasy mainstays: How to Train Your Dragon was so popular it got a sequel and is getting another, Peter Jackson’t Hobbit movies brought a motion-capture Smaug to the big-screen, and this year’s heartwarming Pete’s Dragon made our list of the best summer movies of 2016. With a lull in dragon content before HTTYD 3 arrives, Fox Animation announced today that it has acquired the film rights to what is arguably the saddest song in the whole world: Peter, Paul & Mary’s “Puff the Magic Dragon.”

American Heroes at TCM Bringing ‘The Godfather,’ ‘Casablanca,’ ‘E.T.’ to Theaters in 2017

One of the greatest advantages of living in or around a major metropolitan area, at least for cinephiles, is the abundance of repertory screening options. Independently run theaters will run older, foreign or rare movies to impassioned audiences who may not have had access to the material otherwise, balancing their filmic diet with a healthy balance of new releases and classics. Sure, pert near everything can be found online if you’re willing to investigate some shadier torrenting sites. But the experience of seeing a movie in a dark theater on the big screen, especially a nicely lived-in celluloid print and all its endearing pops and scratches — that makes a difference.

Slow-Motion Run, Don’t Walk, to the First ‘Baywatch’ Trailer

It has become increasingly apparent that the best thing a revival of a tired ‘80s pop-culture artifact can be is the neo-21 Jump Street, judging by the new trailer for the Dwayne Johnson-fronted Baywatch. The parallels are striking: we’ve got the central odd couple in the Rock’s bombastic beach hero and Zac Efron’s hard-partying young gun, light meta touches about “reviving the brand,” some playful winks to the core goofiness of the source material (the “why does she always look like she’s running in slow motion?” line may be the best of the clip), even a scene where our heroes are dressed down by a furious black cop. You may call it derivative, but I call it a good start.
