Natalie Portman's 'Annihilation' Shows Off Creepy First Footage at CinemaCon
Annihilation made its way to CinemaCon on Tuesday, where moody footage debuted.
Portman's character gets emotional when her husband (Oscar Isaac) returns home after 12 months, but he's impassive, barely responding to her when she kisses him.
Readers of the adaptation of the acclaimed sci-fi novel from Jeff VanderMeer will know that when a person returns from their missions … they aren't quite themselves.
She presses him for details of his mission.
"I don't know where it was, or what it was," he says.
He drinks from water, and she sees blood on his glass. Soon, he's in an ambulance, »

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Producer Hints at End of Sony-Marvel Collaboration After Next Movie
Spider-Man fans excited about the webslinger’s second outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” — might be in for a rude awakening. Co-producer Amy Pascal said at CinemaCon Tuesday that the titular character may not be part of the MCU for much longer.
Speaking with Cosmic Book News, Pascal — who was formerly Sony’s studio chief — speculated that after the already agreed-upon “Homecoming” sequel, Spider-Man might be restricted to appearing only in films from Sony, which holds the rights to the character.

Matt Damon’s ‘Downsizing’ First Footage Puts American Life Literally Under a Microscope
Paramount surprised CinemaCon audiences on Tuesday with 10 minutes of Alexander Payne’s new drama “Downsizing,” a surprisingly high-concept movie from a filmmaker known for more grounded, down-to-earth moviemaking. How high-concept? Think a Payne-like version of “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” In the clip, which got a very warm reception from the crowd in Vegas, Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig play a married couple who attend a presentation about literally shrinking themselves. The pitch is made by Neil Patrick Harris’ character, who has already shrunk himself and now lives in a stunning home, bigger than he could’ve ever dreamed of in the. »

Amazon Removing Indie Horror Films With Extreme Content From Streaming Service
Fans of indie horror films beware, Amazon might just start limiting what movies you have access to with your Prime membership. According to a report from Blumhouse, after speaking with a variety of indie horror filmmakers, Amazon has notified creators of “extreme” indie horror films that their works will not be offered as “Included with Prime” any longer, effective March 1st.
Blumhouse has been in contact with numerous indie horror directors who received emails stating that Amazon “will no longer allow titles containing persistent or graphic sexual or violent acts, gratuitous nudity and/or erotic themes (‘adult content’) to be offered as ‘Included with Prime’ or ‘Free with Pre-Roll Ad.'” This is in an effort to “improve the Amazon Video customer experience.” Basically, if Amazon deems a film to be “gratuitous” or containing “erotic themes,” then filmmakers can either have it removed from the service or make cuts to scenes that are flagged. »

‘Dante’s Lunch’: ‘Coco’ Short Introduces Us to a Hungry Hairless Doggo — Watch
“Coco” won’t be released until Thanksgiving, but Pixar has just released a new short accompanying its first non-sequel since “The Good Dinosaur” to whet viewers’ appetites. “Dante’s Lunch” introduces us to the hairless doggo who serves as the best friend of Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) in the upcoming feature, a musical journey through the Land of the Dead. Watch the two-minute short below.
After coming across what’s surely a rather appetizing bone, our canine hero is naturally intrigued — what red-blooded pooch wouldn’t be? This would-be meal appears to have a mind of its own, however, and once Dante latches onto it he finds himself being pulled all across his village until eventually meeting the skeleton said bone belongs to. (If internet scuttlebutt is to be believed, this may be Gael García Bernal’s Hector. »

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Stars Slam Wendy Williams for Past ‘Transphobic’ Incidents
For its ninth season, which premiered on Friday, March 24, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” moved from Logo to VH1. The premiere episode drew nearly one million viewers, making it the show’s most-watched telecast ever, as reported by Deadline.

Examining Five Key Moments in the ‘It’ Trailer
I literally just finished reading Stephen King’s 1986 horror classic It for the first time last night, and I think it’s very close to a perfect piece of storytelling. Earlier today, Warner Bros. unleashed the first trailer for the new film adaptation of the movie, and while it remains to be seen if Mama director Andres Muschietti […]

Box Office: Can ‘Boss Baby,’ ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Top ‘Beauty and the Beast’?
“Beauty and the Beast” shows no signs of slowing down.
The Disney smash has earned more than $700 million in its first three weeks of release, and it could top the domestic box office chart yet again with roughly $40 million. Whether “Beauty and the Beast” three-peats as the weekend winner depends on how many people turn out for “Boss Baby” or “The Ghost in the Shell,” two new wide releases scheduled to hit theaters.
Despite appealing to the same family audience as “Beauty and the Beast,” “Boss Baby” looks to be in the stronger position. The animated feature about a young boy struggling to adjust to life with his attention-grabbing baby brother is on track to debut to $30 million when it opens across 3,773 locations.
DreamWorks Animation produced the picture, which is being distributed by Fox. The studio didn’t offer up a budget. »

And while Megan Ellison isn’t holding a big showcase to highlight what Annapurna has cooking this year (with efforts including Alexander Payne‘s “Downsizing,” which will be released by Paramount), this supercut is a reminder of the big footprint the company has made in a mere six years.

‘Neruda’: Gael Garcia Bernal Is an Expert Policeman in Exclusive Digital Release Clip — Watch
Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain had a very, very big 2016, thanks to the release of not one, not two, but three of his singular works to American audiences. From his bold “The Club” to his ambitious “Neruda” and the lauded “Jackie,” last year spelled the start of a brand new beginning for the talented helmer.
Larrain’s singular “Neruda,” styled as a wholly different kind of biopic (something that will surely sound familiar to fans of “Jackie”) features Gael Garcia Bernal as the “expert policeman” Óscar Peluchonneau, who pursues the celebrated poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) after he joins the Communist Party in the late 1940s.

CinemaCon: Vin Diesel pays tribute to Paul Walker
‘Paul’s legacy lives through every frame that we shoot,’ star tells attendees.
In a show-stopping portion of Universal’s presentation in Las Vegas on Wednesday, Vin Diesel paid heartfelt tribute to the late Paul Walker before he introduced a surprise screening of April 14 release The Fate Of The Furious.
“That was a hard decision to make,” Diesel said of continuing the $3.9bn, 16-year-old global franchise after his friend’s death in November 2013. “But part of Paul’s legacy lives through every frame that we shoot.
“Every time you see Dom [Diesel’s character] on film, every time you see any of the cast… you are reminded of this angel that was so integral to this concept of brotherhood for our millennium.
“There’s something beautiful about that, something celebratory about that. The irony is when I thought about going into this eighth chapter, it was Paul Walker who promised eight.

Richard Kelly Teases Re-Release Of “Expanded” ‘Southland Tales’
Among the many reasons behind the infamy of Richard Kelly‘s post-apocalyptic misfire “Southland Tales,” the brutal reception it received at Cannes paved the way. The filmmaker, dubbed the next hot thing following “Donnie Darko,” brought his ambitious followup to the Croisette, where it played in Competition and was promptly torn to shreds by critics. But here’s one thing you might not know — the movie wasn’t finished.

Vin Diesel Says Paul Walker Is “Looking Over Us” As ‘Fate Of The Furious’ Screens At CinemaCon
Las Vegas — Universal Pictures “surprised” CinemaCon attendees with the first screening of “The Fate Of The Furious” this morning as they capped off what was a somewhat tame presentation to the theater owners in attendance. The studio had a ton of stars on hand (more on that in a minute), but gave a major spotlight to Vin Diesel, who has had a love affair with the convention for years.
