How the Arrowverse Elseworlds Crossover Sets Up a Batwoman Spinoff Series

This year’s Arrowverse crossover, “Elseworlds,” wasn’t just a precursor to next year’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” (although that’s definitely a big deal) – it also finally introduced Batwoman and Gotham into the CW’s superhero universe.

Mary Poppins Returns Review

Mary Poppins Returns Review

When a movie is practically perfect in every way, the prospect of any sequel — let alone one produced more than 50 years after the original — seems like a recipe for disaster. Luckily, with a dash of mischief, a dollop of whimsy, and, yes, a hearty spoonful of sugar, Mary Poppins Returns manages to feel less like a cynical cash-grab and more like a visit from an old friend — even if the reality of her reappearance doesn’t quite live up to your fuzzy memories of the good ol’ days. Set 25 years after the events of Mary Poppins, the sequel finds the titular nanny (who has effortlessly transformed into Emily Blunt) dropping back in on the Banks children when they’re all grown up. Feisty Jane (Emily Mortimer) is following in her activist mother’s footsteps as a labor organizer with no time for romance, and nebbish Michael (Ben Whishaw) is reeling from the death of his wife, simultaneously trying to take care of their three children, Annabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh), and Georgie (Joel Dawson), while struggling to solve a stressful financial situation.

Steven Spielberg Came up with the Idea for a Bumblebee Movie

Steven Spielberg Came up with the Idea for a Bumblebee Movie

Spielberg isn’t just Bumblebee’s executive producer; he was also apparently the film’s idea man. “The original idea for this film actually was Steven ,” Director Travis Knight told Yahoo Movies UK. “We can thank him for this film even existing.” Bumblebee is the first spin-off movie from the Transformers franchise – and Spielberg served as executive producer on all five of the previous movies. As it’s a prequel to those films, Bumblebee will obviously have a similar look and feel. But Knight added that it was Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial that had a particularly huge influence on Bumblebee. Continue reading…
