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).
We weren’t sure what to think about Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic after the first trailer. Yes, it seemed dramatic and fascinating, but also highlighted a performance by Michael Fassbender as the former Apple CEO that didn’t really look or sound at all like Steve Jobs. Could the film overcome that hurdle? After the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this month to rave reviews — specifically calling out Fassbender’s “enthralling” and “stunning” — it may be time to fully buy in to this project. If you’re left doubting, a brand new trailer has arrived to help convince you.
Part of the fun comic book fans have had over the years is debating which superhero could defeat which superhero. Could Wolverine beat The Hulk? Could the X-Men beat The Avengers? There have been entire lines of books devoted to this very topic. Heck, Batman vs. Superman and Captain America: Civil War are both based on this very conceit. So, you can’t blame Matt Damon for getting into the fun when asked if his Jason Bourne, who he calls “my superhero”, could take his pal Ben Affleck’s Batman. As you might expect, Damon’s not stepping down from the challenge.
The reviews for Stephen Colbert’s debut as the new Late Show host were mostly positive. Our own Matt Singer said the show got off to a “solid start” as Colbert took over for David Letterman, but the show almost didn’t get off to a start at all. On his second show, Colbert revealed that because of editing and technical glitches, his first episode almost didn’t make it on air.
Marvel’s Ant-Man opens in theaters today and to this point we’ve seen no shortage of trailers, clips and TV spots showing off all kinds of footage. But, on the last stop on his promotional tour for the movie, Paul Rudd stopped by to visit Conan O’Brien and brought something extra special.
Did you know that Marvel has been working on an Ant-Man movie since the late-1980s? Stan Lee originally pitched the concept to New World Entertainment (then Marvel’s parent company), but they turned the idea down because Disney had just released Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. This is just one of the little facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which proves size matters with Ant-Man!
In addition to starring in and executive producing Maleficent, Angelina Jolie had her hand in a number of different aspects of the film’s promotion. The film’s shoot was even a family affair as Jolie’s two-year-old daughter, Vivienne, starred as the young Sleeping Beauty/Aurora, and Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt also have cameos. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which gets evil with Maleficent!
Like all of Pixar’s films, Finding Nemo has a lot of references to other movies, past and present. If you look closely you can spot characters from The Incredibles, Toy Story and Cars, plus lots of other fun references from the Pixar team. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which just keeps swimming with Finding Nemo!
Anne Hathaway memorably played Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but she very nearly played another catty superhero. The Oscar-winning actress was set to play Black Cat in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4, which would have also featured John Malkovich as Vulture. That film was canceled shortly before filming and Sony eventually decided to reboot the whole franchise. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes completely batty with The Dark Knight Rises!
Jurassic World recently set the record for the biggest opening weekend at the box office with $209 million. But, did you know that Return of the Jedi once held that record in 1983 with just $23 million. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which looks at the finale of the original Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi!
Mission: Impossible is a pretty action-packed film. But, for all its action, would you believe that Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hawke never once fires a gun? Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to check out the rest of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on the original Mission: Impossible!
