How Jordan Peele Brings Originality Back to Hollywood
Back in April of 2016, Jordan Peele, alongside his co-star Keegan Michael-Key, opened their first major theatrical outing in the form of Keanu, which unfortunately underperformed at the box office, taking in around $9 million during its opening weekend and barely doubling that before the end of its run. After such an unfortunate performance, no one would have expected that Peele would soon become one of the most talked about names in Hollywood thanks to his directorial debut, Get Out.
From Indie Flicks to Captain Marvel
In April 2017 Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck were approached with the opportunity of a lifetime: to direct the upcoming Marvel film, Captain Marvel. The two were actually previously considered to direct Guardians of the Galaxy. It is interesting to see a pair known mostly for lower budget films or indie flicks chosen to represent a rather daring film for a billion dollar franchise.
Winter Watch List
Winter is here. For many people, myself included, this means burrowing into your bed, turning off your lights and hibernating until Easter. Unless you have classes, which unfortunately I do. So the best form of distraction is going to the movie theatre, grabbing some popcorn and kicking back for the evening. Here at Narrative we have compiled a list of films to help you beat the winter blues.
