News that caught my eye:
I hear “remake” and see a beloved film, and I automatically sink a bit. Babette’s Feast is a wonderful movie that needs no reworking. However, the story itself is rich enough to be transplantable. Like The Searchers inspiring a sub-genre of films about men going into the wilderness to save a girl, I wouldn’t mind a sub-genre of films about people finding meaning and resolution through a great and large act of charity to those near to her. So, maybe?
Coming off of the very strong The Irishman, Scorsese is ready to film another movie about the killing of some Native Americans. I don’t care what it’s about, it’s more Scorsese, and he’s been on a creative tear recently that feels like the same level of quality he was outputting in the late 70s and early 80s. Bring it, Marty!
And he should be. John Carter is a big, fun adventure movie. It just made no money, at least partially because the marketing was junk.
M. Night Shyamalan Teases That His Two New Original Thrillers for Universal Are Both “Weird and Dark”

Trailers that caught my eye:
First, let’s revisit the terrible John Carter trailer just for giggles:
And…nothing else. Nothing caught my eye for trailers.
