Please Enjoy Taika Waititi Shitting on Apple Keyboards at the Oscars

JoJo Rabbit was up for six Oscars on Monday and managed to take home Best Adapted Screenplay. But while these honours are all well and good, there was something else on the mind of the film's writer and director, Taika Waititi. Read More >>

In Free Guy’s First Trailer, Ryan Reynolds is the Only Dude for the Job

What if you were able to break the boundaries of the role society placed you in? And what if you were, also, literally, a video game character? And what if you were also played by Ryan Reynolds in a new motion picture? Wait. Hang on. This metaphor has fallen apart. Read More >>

Taika Waititi Still Plans on Directing Akira, Eventually

Western anime adaptations are always fraught and complex, but few have been as troubled in their development as Akira. Recently, it was delayed due to director Taika Waititi’s major commitments elsewhere. And while some viewed that as another death knell on another failed adaptation of Akira, Waititi isn’t so sure.

Oh My God, Jojo Rabbit Brought Back the Downfall Meme

We’ve only seen a brief teaser trailer, but we’re already in love with Jojo Rabbit.

The Greatest What We Do in the Shadows Moments (So Far)

The only thing I didn’t like about What We Do in the Shadows’ first season? The commercial breaks! Rude interruptions aside, the FX series based on Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s brilliant 2014 movie was a consistently hilarious mockumentary about the mundane and occasionally macabre lives of Staten Island’s resident vampires. While we wait for season two, there’s no better time to revisit our favourite moments so far. Read More >>

Apparently, Taika Waititi’s Akira Is Actually Happening and Will Be Here in Two Years

Warner Bros. has just slotted Akira, directed by Taika Waititi, for release on May 21, 2021. That sentence sounds like an April Fool’s joke to anyone who’s been following the decade-plus of almost-attempts to bring Katsuhiro Otomo’s iconic 1982 manga-turned-legendary 1988 anime back to the big screen. But, for now, this is the plan. Read More >>

The First What We Do in the Shadows Trailer Introduces the Most Terrifying Monsters of All

Have you ever found yourself having a conversation with an abnormally dull person, and then suddenly realised how physically exhausted you are?
