‘Overlord’ Review: An Aggressively Boring Nazi Zombie Rehash
Let’s get this out of the way up front: Overlord is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a Cloverfield movie. There are monsters — both literal and figurative — and a sci-fi horror plot with a vague whiff of Lovecraft, but the latest film from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot is entirely its own beast, for better or worse. Unfortunately in this case it’s the latter, as what was clearly intended to be a timely thriller fails to deliver on nearly every level.
‘Apostle’ Review: Dan Stevens Leads a Solid, But Unremarkable Cult Thriller
Gareth Evans captivated audiences in 2011 with The Raid, a pulse-pounding action-thriller that showcased his fascination with Indonesian martial arts as well as an exceptional knack for editing and fight choreography.

It’s solid enough, though you’d probably never suspect Evans directed it if his name wasn’t in the credits.

Marvel Still Using James Gunn’s ‘Guardians 3’ Script as Other Major Studios Line Up to Hire Him
Earlier today, a rumor began circulating about Marvel’s plans to toss out James Gunn’s script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The filmmaker was in the midst of writing the screenplay when he was recently fired for a series of old, offensive tweets, which were published to his personal Twitter account before he ever made the first Guardians film.

‘Zombieland 2’ Officially Happening With Original Cast and Filmmakers
