As those of you with a decent grasp of horror trivia already know, the Demeter was the ship whose ultimately doomed journey to deliver some especially dangerous cargo from Transylvania to London was chronicled in the seventh chapter of the Bram Stoker classic Dracula . Although this section, running 16 pages in my copy, contains some of the most evocative imagery in that sometimes clumsily written book, the whole episode is not that important to the narrative. It simply illustrates how the title character got from point A to B, and on the rare occasions when filmmakers have chosen to bring this story to the screen, the journey is either reduced to a brief montage or newspaper headline or ignored entirely. Now comes “The Last Voyage of the Demeter,” a feature-length expansion of those 16 pages that fully examines the strange occurrences aboard one of the most doomed sea journeys in literary history.

Upon hearing this movie's premise for the first time, I wasn’t entirely convinced it could work. This would be a film where practically every audience member would not only know exactly what the supernatural force at the center of the story is before the Universal logo hits the screen. But they would also—barring some unexpected deviation from the well-known narrative—know exactly how the on-screen events would play out. To me, it looked like just another attempt by Universal to introduce the character that played such a key role in the studio’s history to contemporary audiences following the misfired likes of “Dracula: Untold” and the recent and dreadful “ Renfield .” That may have been the case, but the results are a big step up from those previous stumbles, an often striking take on the tale that makes up for what it lacks in surprise with a lot of style and some undeniably effective scare moments.

Set in 1897, the film opens as the Demeter is about to set sail from Transylvania to London, carrying Captain Eliot ( Liam Cunningham ), loyal first mate Wojchek ( David Dastmalchian ), his grandson Toby ( Woody Norman ), and a small crew that grows even smaller when some of the locals recruited for the journey get skittish when they see that the cargo contains many large crates being sent by an unknown figure to Carfax Abbey in London. Among those recruited at the last second is Clemens ( Corey Hawkins ), who signs on as the ship’s doctor to get passage home to England. His expertise comes in handy when one of the boxes is accidentally opened, and an apparent stowaway ( Aisling Franciosi ) is discovered with a mysterious malady that requires numerous blood transfusions. 

Soon, strange things begin happening on the ship. All the livestock on board and Toby’s beloved dog are slaughtered throughout one grisly evening. Sailors begin seeing and hearing odd things at night while on watch, and even the ship’s rats appear to have vanished, leading up to the deathless line, “A boat without rats—such a thing is against nature.” The members of the crew soon begin disappearing, driving the already skittish ones who remain further into paranoia that is not helped when the stowaway, whose name proves to be Anna, finally wakes up and informs Clemens and the others that to steal a line from Mel Brooks , yes, they have Nosferatu. As Dracula ( Javier Botet ) continues snacking through the ship, the rapidly dwindling survivors try to figure out how to stop him before they reach London.

The film was directed by André Øvredal , whose previous credits include such intriguing horror-related efforts as “ Trollhunter ,” “ The Autopsy of Jane Doe ,” and the underrated “ Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark .” This time, he is trying to figure out how to tell a story in which everyone in the audience will be ahead of the characters on the screen at virtually every given point. He accomplishes that primarily by focusing heavily on visual style, creating a moody and haunted atmosphere throughout—even during the scenes set in the daytime—that is both eerily beautiful and just plain eerie. "The Last Voyage of the Demeter" is one of the better-looking horror films to come along in a while. The cat-and-mouse games between Dracula and the crew are staged in a manner that suggests a seafaring variation of “ Alien ,” with Øvredal milking scenes for maximum tension before culminating in some nasty business. 

Bear in mind, some of that business is indeed quite nasty—the visualization of Dracula shown here is a particularly grotesque and demonic variation, the scenes of slaughter are definitely gory enough to earn the “R” rating, and not only does the one character you are conditioned to expect to somehow avoid a gruesome demise end up suffering just that, but they also do so more than once. The performances, especially the ones from genre MVP Dastmalchian, Franciosi (so effective in “ The Nightingale ”), and Botet, are all strong and convincing, which helps to raise the emotional stakes to make up for the lack of surprise.

There are two points where the film stumbles a bit. Although the relatively slow and measured pacing employed by Øvredal to generate suspense is mostly effective and preferable to the quick-cut approach others might have taken, a few scenes here run on too long for their own good. Also, the film—Spoiler Alert!—indulges in one of the most irritating elements of contemporary horror cinema, a final scene that exists solely to set up future movies if this one does well at the box office. 

And yet, the rest of the movie works enough so that these flaws don’t hurt things too badly. “The Last Voyage of the Demeter” may not be a classic in the annals of Dracula cinema along the lines of the Terence Fisher's Hammer production “Horror of Dracula,” Werner Herzog ’s version of “ Nosferatu the Vampyre ,” or Francis Ford Coppola ’s “Bram’s Stoker’s Dracula.” But it is a smart, well-made, and sometimes downright creepy take on the tale that both horror buffs and regular moviegoers can appreciate in equal measure.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter is a 2023 horror film directed by André Øvredal . It is based upon Bram Stoker 's classic Gothic Horror novel, Dracula , specifically the chapter "The Captain's Log". Starring in the film are Corey Hawkins , Aisling Franciosi , Liam Cunningham , and David Dastmalchian .

The story tells of the nightmarish final voyage of the Demeter as it sails from Romania to England... with an unexpected passenger aboard. The film released in theatres August 11, 2023. Interestingly, it is the second 2023 film by Universal to be based upon Dracula , the first being the horror comedy Renfield .

The manifest for this voyage is comprised of the following:

  • Action Survivor : Both Anna and Clemens become this by the end. Anna in particular shows clear prior knowledge of how to use a gun (presumably due to being from a rural village with hostile wildlife), but it's not until she's back to her full strength that she has the will to fight.
  • In the original novel, while it is implied Dracula massacred the crew of the Demeter , there is enough evidence to suggest he was innocent and one of the crew did it instead. The film removes any ambiguity by showing Dracula attacking the ship's livestock and crew.
  • Despite adapting the events of less than a single chapter, the timeline is so loosely adhered to as to be unrecognizable, with everything from the book that could have been a scene being notably absent. To give but one example, the captain is specifically noted to have been dead for two days when the authorities in Whitby discover him, while the film's climax takes place only one day before they reach London.
  • The captain is the subject of many deviations, from the addition of his grandson to the complete negation of his Dying Moment of Awesome . He's also much more keyed into the plot in this version; In the original novel, the captain was the last person to learn about Dracula and didn't see him until his last entry in the log, while here his crew are much more eager to loop him into things.
  • Dracula is here reimagined as a near-feral Orlok-esque winged vampire, appearing to entirely lack the shapeshifting abilities of the book (although he does sprout previously-absent wings after feeding), with even his final appearance dressed to the nines but unmistakably inhuman.
  • The book makes no mention of any additional vampires created from the crew. The film has Olgaren and Toby return as vampiric zombies after Dracula's feeding was interrupted, a fate shared by Anna in the end . Said zombies also burst into flame in direct sunlight , another notable deviation from the book.
  • The captain's death bears some specific mention for how it is rearranged. In the novel, he is found lashed to the wheel with a rosary and cross , having starved to death untouched by Dracula. In the film, his cross entirely fails to ward off Dracula, and Clemens actually unties him from the wheel and lets him down so he can die of his injuries.
  • While the film shows the Demeter beached on a rocky shoal, in the book the ship practically sailed itself into harbor, with Dracula disembarking in the form of an intimidating black dog. Several paragraphs are even spent on the subject of who is legally responsible for the wreckage.
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication : In the original novel, an impenetrable fog surrounds the Demeter the entire time it is in the English Channel, preventing them from contacting any other ships for help or going to any of the many ports on both sides of the Channel. While the fog can be briefly seen in the movie, the fact that it is the reason they're not putting in somewhere or why the crew doesn't try to get help in one of the world's most heavily trafficked sea-lanes isn't brought up.
  • Adaptation Expansion : The film focuses on, well, The Last Voyage of the Demeter , which encompassed a single chapter of the original Dracula novel.
  • Adaptational Heroism : Not that the crew in the novel was evil, but their role is limited to being picked off by Dracula, and as awesome as the captain's death is it still leads Dracula to port. In this movie not only they actively try to fight him off, but even attempt to prevent him from reaching the coast. Not to mention that Clemens manages to survive the encounter and vows to hunt him down.
  • Adaptational Nationality : The original novel mentions a crewman named Abramoff; in the film, he's changed to Abrams and played by an Irish actor.
  • Adaptational Non Sapience : Subverted with Dracula. Early on in the film, Dracula is presented as a feral predator. When he infects Olgaren , not only does he mimic his scared words, but he does it again near the end of the movie when he gives a Shut Up, Kirk! to Clemens, and the movie ends with Dracula having already donned his iconic garb to fit in with the humans in London .
  • Adaptational Ugliness : Dracula wasn't exactly a handsome guy in the book, but he was rather humanlike in appearance, being a decrepit-looking old man with a mustache . Here, he's a hideous, batlike Humanoid Abomination , looking and acting more like a wild, feral beast than a human.
  • Adaptational Wimp : Dracula's ability to shapeshift, control the weather and the mind of others are all left out of this movie, and he gains a vulnerability to the sun. The trope is hugely downplayed, though, since what is left is more than enough to make him an unstoppable threat. One might assume he still has these powers, but held back because he didn't consider the crew enough of a threat to use them.
  • The Alcoholic : Petrofsky. Wojchek waves off his death as having simply fallen overboard from drink (despite the blood on the deck). Other members of the crew are unconvinced, claiming there wasn't enough alcohol on board to get someone with Petrofsky's tolerance drunk enough to fall off the ship.
  • Anyone Can Die : Given the Foregone Conclusion of the source material, absolutely nobody is safe. In the end, Clemens is the only survivor.
  • Apocalyptic Log : As in the novel, the captain's log, which provides occasional narration as the situation onboard goes from bad to worse.
  • The dialogue states that after the ship passes the Gulf of Biscay, their only course of action is to continue on to London, which is absolutely not the case, as by that point they would've been in the English Channel and could've just as easily landed anywhere in Brittany or Normandy if they didn't want to make landfall in England.
  • This extends to the entire voyage, as unlike what the movie implies, the Demeter's route would've never taken them to any point where sailing to a port during the daylight time wouldn't have been an option. Were it not for the points of origin and destination, a viewer might be forgiven for thinking the movie depicted a transatlantic voyage.
  • Petrofsky and Larsen. The former is a surly drunk who makes derogatory comments about Clemens and Anna, and the latter holds his knife at Clemens when he attempts to retaliate. Fittingly, the two men are Dracula’s first human victims.
  • Joseph seems like an all right guy early on , but once Dracula has killed several members of the crew, his self-righteousness boils to the surface. He claims Dracula's appearance is a curse from God, and chews out the crew for various "sins" they committed (while conspicuously not bringing up any "sins" of his own ). He then knocks out one of his crewmates and tries to steal a boat to escape, so the audience is unlikely to mourn him when Dracula simply flies out to his boat to eat him.
  • Ax-Crazy : Downplayed. Dracula is more brutal and feral than any other incarnations before, but he's still a cunning and manipulative monster.
  • Back Stab : Clemens buries an axe into Dracula's back, although it does nothing but anger him .
  • She later gets another one minutes later when she cuts the ropes to send a wooden pole into Dracula to try and kill him.
  • The Bad Guy Wins : A Foregone Conclusion , since the Demeter 's fate is established in the opening of the film and this is merely a single chapter in the larger story of Dracula. Clemens survives, and has a haunting encounter in a busy pub where Dracula taunts him before vanishing into the foggy streets .
  • Bat People : The final form that Dracula adopts once he starts attacking the crew openly is a humanoid creature with bat wings, though Anna notes that he's capable of appearing human to disguise himself when he so chooses .
  • Bittersweet Ending : With the exception of Clemens, everyone onboard the Demeter dies, and Dracula has made it to London along with Clemens. However, he is dedicated to finding the vampire and killing him for good.
  • Black Dude Dies First : Inverted with Clemens who survives and seeks to hunt down Dracula .
  • Call-Forward : Clemens uses blood transfusions to treat Anna when he first discovers her, the same treatment Van Helsing would prescribe for Lucy Westenra in the novel.
  • While most of the crew were never directly named in the original Dracula novel, a log does enumerate them: 1 captain, 2 mates, 1 cook and 5 hands, with no doctor being mentioned, so this applies to Clemens who also survives the events of the story and is last seen hunting Dracula down in London .
  • There is, naturally, no mention in the novel of a female stowaway being found in one of Dracula's crates full of dirt.
  • The captain's grandson Toby is likewise a complete fabrication for the film.
  • Classy Cane : While searching the cargo for signs of the monster, Clemens discovers an elegant cane with a dragon's head partially buried in one of the boxes. Dracula later uses this cane to taunt Clemens in a busy pub, tapping it on the floor to draw his attention before vanishing into the streets .
  • Closed Circle : The Demeter is a cargo vessel in the middle of the ocean, preventing the cast from leaving when things start to go wrong. Even worse, they had an opportunity to stop in port early on when the animals died, but if they did that they would lose their early delivery bonus and so chose not to.
  • Continuity Nod : The Brides themselves do not appear, but Anna indicates that her people have been giving people to Dracula for centuries to appease him. She is merely the latest "gift" offered to him, and yet another woman being preyed upon similar to Lucy and Mina.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character : Clemens is one for Abraham Van Helsing. Both men are professional doctors and men of science in general, but while Van Helsing is already well versed in the supernatural and quick to identify the threat's origin , Clemens has no such background and initially tries to find more mundane explanation for the threat facing them . Because of the above-mentioned knowledge, Van Helsing is able to better plan against Dracula's actions with the loss of only a single member of his group, Clemens ends up being the Sole Survivor of his own . Van Helsing also commands considerable respect and is a fairly big name in the medical world, while Clemens struggles to find work due to the racism he faces (which makes this contrast a twofold, since Van Helsing is accepted despite being a foreigner, while Clemens is ostracized despite being English).
  • Death by Pragmatism : Joseph decides to steal a lifeboat in the middle of the night to escape Dracula. That would have been a smart decision if Dracula wasn't killing the crew one at a time to make sure they last the journey and are able to keep the ship going. By already removing himself from the crew, Joseph just made himself Dracula's next meal.
  • Death of a Child : As one might expect from a story with such a Foregone Conclusion , Toby does not survive the events of the story. This pretty much destroys the captain's spirit.
  • Defiant to the End : Thankfully averted as Anna saves him. Clemens as Dracula has him at his mercy, says to him in a defiant tone Clemens : [as Dracula has him by the throat.] I do not fear you.
  • Despair Event Horizon : Toby’s death breaks Captain Elliot, and after getting over a brief delusional episode where he thinks Dracula can revive him, he resolves to go down with the ship.
  • Developing Doomed Characters : Dracula doesn't really make his first appearance until the half-hour mark, with the time before that spent getting to know the various seamen before they become vampire chow.
  • Doomed by Canon : Clemens ends the movie pledging to hunt down Dracula. Since he's a Canon Foreigner and there was no mention in the book of anyone else pursuing Dracula outside of our protagonists, we know Clemens' quest is doomed to failure.
  • Dracula : The vampire menacing the crew, naturally, though it isn't until about halfway through the film that he finally gets name-dropped by Anna.
  • Evil-Detecting Dog : All the animals freak out when Dracula emerges from his hold. Early on, Huckleberry the dog is shown barking through the floor at Dracula's shadow down in the cargo area.
  • Evil Sounds Deep : The few times Dracula talks his voice is very deep and menacing.
  • Face Death with Dignity : Unlike Olgaren and Toby, who both die screaming, Anna makes no sound as she lets the sun’s light ignite her.
  • Facial Horror : The scene with a vampiric Olgaren burning in the sunlight, with a closeup of his skin bubbling like boiling water .
  • Foregone Conclusion : Anyone who has read the original Dracula knows that the Demeter arrives in England with no surviving crew. This is played with slightly in that while Clemens survives, he arrives in England separately from the Demeter and makes no report of his survival, leaving the newspaper accounts to match those in the novel .
  • Genius Bruiser : Dracula might be at first looks like a fierce, savagely beast but he's actually very smart and diabolical as the protagonists finds out at their own expenses.
  • Genre Blind : Played for Drama . Despite having several clues about how to best confront Dracula, the characters' unfamiliarity with their monstrous foe causes them to miss these and plays into the Foregone Conclusion of the crew's fate. From not realizing that vampirism is infectious and that vampires can be harmed by daylight, despite witnessing two infected crew members go up in a conflagration in the morning sun , to not realizing that a holy object and sufficient faith can repel Dracula. This leads to their final plan to kill Dracula being to attack him with guns during the nighttime when he appears, rather than striking when he's vulnerable in daytime.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath : Dracula possesses these, and make him easy to spot when he's lurking in the shadows.
  • Hard Truth Aesop : Clemens delivers a sad but true fact about life to Toby when Dracula kills his dog Huck . He notes that sometimes, things out of your control can cause things to go horribly wrong despite your promises, and all you can do in the face of that is to do your best. It proves prophetic when despite the heroes' best efforts, Dracula makes it to London and the Demeter is lost with all hands save Clemens.
  • Harbinger of Impending Doom : The scarred old man in the opening of the film, who changes his mind about joining the crew once he sees the dragon on the boxes they're carrying and loudly tells them why. Unfortunately for the Demeter , no one heeds his warnings until it's too late.
  • Notably averted, as a departure from the source material (where Dracula can be repelled by holy objects). There are several deeply religious characters on board and multiple rosaries that get significant, lingering shots during the movie. Captain Elliot even holds one up when making his final confrontation with Dracula . They do absolutely nothing, though whether this is because Elliot's faith was not strong enough, or if holy objects really do nothing against this incarnation of Dracula, is not made clear .
  • Possibly played straight with vampire Olgaren. When Toby clutches a rosary and starts silently praying, he seems to stop trying to break down the door, but this might have just been because Dracula was already in the room with him and he was letting his master close in for the kill.
  • Hope Spot : The vampiric Olgaren attempts to break into the captain's quarters where Toby is hiding, but is ultimately stopped by the rest of the crew. All seems well, until the child realizes he isn't alone inside the room. The crew's frantic efforts to finish breaking into the room are too late to save Toby, who dies soon afterwards from the bite and becomes an Undead Child .
  • How We Got Here : The film opens with the wreck of the Demeter being discovered by the police, then spends the rest of the movie showing its slow demise at Dracula's hands.
  • Human Sacrifice : Routinely sacrificing villagers to appease Dracula's hunger is apparently how Anna's village survived living under his rule for hundreds of years. It's implied she was specifically raised for this purpose herself.
  • It Can Think : The crew slowly realize the monster aboard is smart . Using misdirection, targeting them in vulnerable areas and using strategy makes Dracula far more dangerous.
  • Jack the Ripoff : In the final scene, Dracula is dressed to the nines in a fancy coat and top hat that invoke the Trope Namer .
  • Kick the Dog : Dracula parroting a crew member's words ("Please, no") who begs for his life before trying to kill him.
  • Jump Scare : Several in the film, the most effective being ones where Dracula is illuminated by a flash of lightning, and the most egregious being early on when Olgaren suddenly sees Dracula's face through his spyglass when looking around the ship at night (only to see nothing when he lowers it).
  • Let's Split Up, Gang! : Downplayed. When searching the ship after discovering the injured Olgaren , the captain insists that everyone break off into pairs rather than going off on their own. This still results in Toby being unaccounted for, and leads to his subsequent death.
  • Looks Like Orlok : This incarnation of Dracula takes many design cues from Orlok , most notably the bald head and pointed ears. Dracula is also distinctly needle-fanged in this version.
  • Mercy Kill : Wojchek shoots the vampire Olgaren to give him a quicker death than burning alive in the sun.
  • Monster Progenitor : Dracula's bites infect his victims with vampirism when they die, as per the source material, though unlike in the novel it doesn't seem to make them into a being like himself. Rather, his progeny appear to be more like classic undead, semi-mindless slaves with none of his special powers and easy prey for the typical vampire weaknesses, like sunlight.
  • Monstrous Humanoid : Dracula starts out desiccated from not having eaten in some time, and when the crew stumbles across his emergency rations (Anna) he decides to go on a feeding frenzy, ending the film as a monstrous bat-person with a fang-lined mouth.
  • Moody Trailer Cover Song : The song for the trailer is none other than a moody remix of "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" by The Smashing Pumpkins .
  • Offscreen Teleportation : Dracula can disappear if the camera is off of him even for a moment. One notable example is an upward panning shot that shows Dracula's legs underneath the table, but once the camera gets above it, he has vanished.
  • Ominous Fog : Happens a few times during the movie, with one particular instance near the end heavily implied to have been summoned by Dracula himself to make him harder to spot for the crew.
  • Outliving One's Offspring : This already happened in regards to Captain Elliot and his daughter, and then he essentially goes through it again when Toby dies.
  • Pragmatic Villainy : Dracula brought Anna aboard to feed on her blood, presumably so as not to draw the crew's attention. When Clemens gets her out of reach, he makes do with eating the livestock and the rats, and only attacks the crew when he runs out of those. Even then, he only kills one at a time , both to "ration" their blood, and to make sure the ship has enough people to get him to England.
  • Raised by Grandparents : Toby is being raised by his grandfather, Captain Elliot.
  • Rain of Blood : How the crew find Olgaren in the rigging after he goes missing—Clemens sees the blood dripping onto Toby's shirt.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech : Clemens gives one of these to Dracula at the end, emphasizing that while the others believe he's a devil or a god, the fact that he feeds on them to survive means that he's just as mortal and scared of death as the rest of them. This ends up saving his life, as Dracula makes a point of sadistically toying with him afterwards rather than just killing him outright, which gives Anna time to save him. Clemens : [ Defiantly calling out to Dracula.] You want them to believe that you're a god! You and I both know that you're not! You bleed like any of us! You sleep in dirt! You feed! Above all else, you feed! You want us to... to fear you! Underneath, you're afraid! You're afraid of what lies on the other side as any other living thing!"
  • Recycled In Space : Inverted - it's Alien but with Dracula on a boat!
  • Retirony : Captain Elliot states early on that he intends to retire, and this will be his last voyage. He's correct about the second part, but will not survive to enjoy the peaceful life he'd planned for his retirement.
  • Romanticism Versus Enlightenment : Clemens is a learned man from Cambridge, a doctor who professes a desire to understand the world and make sense of it, and insists on using logic and advanced (for the time) medical practice in the face of the horrors on the ship. Meanwhile the crew is established as being superstitious and emotionally-charged. Toby even remarks early on how Captain Elliot prefers the Demeter , an old wooden ship, to a more modern steam-powered vessel. Dracula himself is presented as a distinctly "old world" monster from a very feudal country, one who is aided by the crew's supernatural beliefs rather than thwarted by them. Notably, the "enlightened" Clemens is the only survivor of the crew . This is actually in line with the original novel, where Dracula represented the old world and superstition while Van Helsing was a man of science and reason although, unlike Clemens, he had no issue mixing it up with faith (also some of his tools, like phrenology, would be considered superstition rather than science today). Van Helsing's greater success is due to, among other factors, having a crew that actually listens to him .
  • Rule of Three : Over the course of the story, three people are transformed into vampires and then killed by sunlight.
  • Scary Teeth : Dracula's razor-sharped teeth, of course.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here! : Joseph tries to escape the Demeter alone on a lifeboat when Dracula starts killing people openly. Since Dracula has wings by then, it doesn't work out for him .
  • Sadist : Dracula loves to play with his food a lot like mockingly repeating a crew member's words when he begs for his life and then smiling cruelly. He seems to be a massive one towards Clemens as he's probably impressed by his courage to face him and even taunting him and he seemingly plans to prolong his suffering instead of just kill him.
  • Sequel Hook : [[spoiler. The movie ends with Clemens still hunting Dracula in London.]]
  • Shoot the Dog : Subverted. After Toby is bitten but left still alive, Clemens worries aloud about his chances of survival, recalling how Olgaren turned and became a threat as a result of his wounds. Wojchek starts to hand him a gun, demanding he "look him in the eye" when he does it, and Clemens balks at the implication and turns him down. Considering Toby's ultimate fate, it might have been kinder if he had .
  • Toby's dog is named Huckleberry . It's quite probably a reference in-universe as well given that the books involving him were originally released in 1876 and 1884 and the film is set in 1897.
  • Sole Survivor : Clemens. While he and Anna make it off the ship, she lets herself burn in the sunlight before she gives in to her vampirism, and Clemens makes it to London alive.
  • Something Only They Would Say : A non-verbal version. Early on in the film, Toby teaches Clemens the particular knock-on-wood signal the Demeter's crew uses to communicate around the ship to indicate all's well. In the epilogue, Dracula tauntingly repeats this same signal to get Clemens' attention in a crowded London pub, using his Classy Cane to make the knocking sound, before leaving into the streets, to tell the ship's Doctor that all is not well with him still being alive, and challenging him silently to finish what they started on the ship, if he dares .
  • Slasher Smile : The expression Dracula makes towards most of his victims before feasting on them. Enhanced by his many bulging sharp teeth.
  • Slashed Throat : How Dracula kills Petrofsky before feeding on him.
  • Spoiler Title : The Latin American title for the film is "Dracula: Sea of Blood".
  • Suicide by Sunlight : Anna chooses to climb onto wreckage to greet the rising sun, rather than become another monster. Unlike the other vampires burned by the sun, she dies peacefully .
  • Tainted Veins : Those who are cursed with vampirism seem to show these, most notably Toby and Anna shortly before they catch on fire .
  • Uncertain Doom : Since Clemens isn't part of the Dracula novel, it can be assumed that his path never crossed the Harkers and their allies. That, and the way Dracula seems to be baiting him into following at the end of the movie, it could be that he's Killed Offscreen , but there's no way to know for sure.
  • Undead Child : After being killed by Dracula, Toby briefly resurrects as a vampire in the middle of his Burial at Sea , before he is quickly ignited by the sun’s rays and tossed overboard.
  • Vagueness Is Coming : As the unsettling events begin to pile up, Olgaren, who saw a glimpse of Dracula the previous night, concludes that "evil is onboard".
  • Vampire Bites Suck : We get varying levels of gore on the vampire bites, from Petrofsky getting a huge chunk taken out of his throat, to Anna having several hideously bruised bite marks, but in all cases Dracula's bites are vicious and painful for his victims.
  • Vampire Hunter : Clemens becomes one at the end of the story, vowing to hunt Dracula down and put an end to his evil.
  • Viral Transformation : Early on, the crew worry that whatever killed the animals might be contagious. They are partially correct, as is Clemens' theory that Anna's condition is the result of "infected blood". Everyone that is bitten, but not immediately killed, ends up turning into a vampire. The blood transfusions are able to delay the change, but ultimately cannot save Toby or Anna from turning .
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting : He's never shown doing it, but it's clear that Dracula can grow and retract his wings at will.
  • Weakened by the Light : We never see if Dracula is susceptible to sunlight, as all of his scenes take place at night, but the victims he's turned all painfully combust once exposed to the light of day .
  • What Happened to the Mouse? : Wojchek hires three new crewmen in Varna. One of them quits after seeing the dragon emblem on the crates, and is replaced by Clemens, but the other two disappear from the film completely after the ship leaves port.
  • Worthy Opponent : Granted, it's mostly tinged with sadistic intentions, but Dracula seems to form this opinion towards Clemens over the course of the film, openly confronting him when Clemens gives a passionate The Reason You Suck speech over how he's ultimately as mortal as the rest of them, aiming to break his spirit for the insult. Whilst they both mutually fail to kill the other, in The Stinger Dracula intentionally alerts Clemens to his presence in a London pub before vanishing into the streets, clearly inviting him to have another go at stopping him so they can both settle their score .
  • Would Hurt a Child : Dracula has no issue targeting little Toby and killing him like the other people onboard.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl : Captain Elliot spares Anna from being tossed overboard as a stowaway because she's a girl.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit : Dracula appears to Petrofsky as a malnourished and frail creature just seconds before he reveals his true strength and kills him.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain : Early in the film, the crew happily discusses a bonus that has been promised to them if they can deliver Dracula's cargo to London early. Needless to say, he doesn't give it to them.

‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter’ Review: Blood on the Water

This horror movie, based on a chapter from Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” is set on a cargo ship unwittingly transporting an evil demon.

  • Share full article

A man and a woman on the deck of a ship have looks of dismay on their faces. The man is crouching while the woman lies on the floor, both looking up.

By Natalia Winkelman

Horror heads are accustomed to screeching at the screen, “Don’t go in the basement!” In “The Last Voyage of the Demeter,” I found myself inclined toward the reverse exclamation: “Just go below deck and kill him already!”

Based on a chapter in Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula,” this squally scary movie is set on a London-bound merchant ship doomed to a bloody routine. Days are safe, but sundown brings the terrorizing thirst of the vessel’s vampire stowaway, who emerges in darkness to bite a few necks before retiring to his makeshift cargo coffin.

The regularity of Dracula’s circadian timetable raises the question: Why doesn’t the crew just attack around noon? It could have saved the movie’s beneficent hero, Clemens (Corey Hawkins), a boatload of trouble.

The movie begins as Clemens, a British doctor, appeals to Captain Eliot (Liam Cunningham) to join the Demeter’s company. The only educated man onboard, Clemens nonetheless proves an able deckhand, winning the favor of both the salty first mate, Wojchek (David Dastmalchian), and the captain’s wide-eyed grandson, Toby (Woody Norman).

But “The Last Voyage,” directed by André Ovredal, doesn’t waste time on characterizations. Before long, bad omens and creaky floorboards give way to repetitive, swollen set pieces as Dracula picks off the shipmates one by one. The script does find time for a feeble feminist gesture — the story’s sole woman can cock a rifle — and a monologue about racism. These efforts to update the tale are about as successful as those of the sorry crew, whose fates were written over a century ago.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter Rated R for fighting and biting. Running time: 1 hour 58 minutes. In theaters.

Dracula Movie 'The Last Voyage of the Demeter' Finally Gets Streaming Release Date

The Big Picture

  • The Last Voyage of the Demeter is set to hit Paramount+ with SHOWTIME on February 11.
  • The film is based on a chapter from Bram Stoker's Dracula and offers a new take on the vampire genre.
  • More vampire films are expected to be released later this year, including Abigail and a remake of Nosferatu .

One of last year’s more overlooked horror films has finally set sail for streaming as The Last Voyage of the Demeter is heading to Paramount+ with SHOWTIME. The film will arrive at the streaming site on February 11, according to a recent report from Bloody Disgusting .

While most horror films tend to make their streaming debut shortly after their theatrical window has expired, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is a notable exception with the movie finally being available for fans to stream six months after its theatrical debut last August. While the horror flick may have opened to mixed reviews and a poor box office performance , the film finally being available to watch on Paramount+ could help it find a new audience that may have missed out during its initial theatrical release.

Directed by André Øvredal ( Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark ) and based on the “Captain’s Log" chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic horror novel Dracula , The Last Voyage of the Demeter centers on the titular ship and its crew as it must set sail toward its destination. Meanwhile, the dark and sinister vampire lurks in the shadows awaiting the ill-fated crew. Dracula may be no stranger to cinema, with the novel itself receiving a plethora of other adaptations . However, focusing on a single chapter from the novel does offer the opportunity to expand on the world established in the book. And with a more monstrous appearance from Dracula this time around, fans of the genre won’t want to miss out on the film.

Plenty of Vampire Stories Are Still in Store Later This Year

If the release of Renfield and The Last Voyage of the Demeter last year has proven anything, it’s that there is no shortage of vampire films. And it looks like fans of the genre have even more exciting projects to sink their teeth into later this year, starting with the release of Abigail from Radio Silence . Loosely inspired by Dracula’s Daughter, the film will be an updated re-imagining of the classic Universal Monster. Additionally, fans can keep an eye out for an exciting treat this holiday season as director Robert Eggers is finally bringing his long-awaited Nosferatu remake to the big screen on December 25. Until then, fans can get some additional gory vampire action when The Last Voyage of the Demeter sets sail on Paramount+ next month.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter starts streaming on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME on February 11. Check out the official trailer for the film above.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter just isn’t scary enough to live up to Dracula’s legacy

The last voyage of the demeter turns one of the most riveting chapters from bram stoker’s dracula into a soggy feature-length horror that never finds its sea legs..

By Charles Pulliam-Moore , a reporter focusing on film, TV, and pop culture. Before The Verge, he wrote about comic books, labor, race, and more at io9 and Gizmodo for almost five years.

A man crouching behind a sprawled-out woman on the deck of a ship.

There have been so many cinematic adaptations of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and movies inspired by the 1897 novel over the years that it’s actually quite easy to understand some of the logic behind Universal’s The Last Voyage of the Demeter from director André Øvredal. There’s an undeniable brilliance behind the idea of building a feature-length story around one of the most haunting and cryptic chapters from a book that’s terrified multiple generations of horror lovers. But for all of The Last Voyage of the Demeter ’s promise and its obvious desire to bring something new and inspired to the larger Dracula canon, the film never quite lives up to its full potential due to a curious lack of outright scares or a properly terrifying atmosphere.

Set in the same year that Dracula was actually published, The Last Voyage of the Demeter draws much of its inspiration from the seventh chapter of Stoker’s novel — a short collection of newspaper clippings and a captain’s log detailing how a small ship full of sailors was besieged and ultimately wrecked by a monstrous presence while traveling from Romania to England.

Being a seasoned sailor who’s spent years ferrying valuable goods on the Demeter, there’s very little about the world that still truly shocks Captain Eliot (Liam Cunningham) by the time we first meet him in the movie’s opening act as he and his crew are preparing to set sail once again. With Eliot having recently taken in his grandson Toby (Woody Norman) following the death of his daughter, first mate Wojchek (David Dastmalchian), the Demeter’s religious cook Joseph (Jon Jon Briones), and other members of the crew like Olgaren (Stefan Kapicic) all know that they’re more than just colleagues to their captain.

film last voyage of the demeter

Eliot’s crew is his family, and he’s the key to them all making some real money transporting valuable cargo for whoever can afford their services. With the Demeter short-staffed ahead of its latest voyage from Romania to England, though, the sailors also know that they need some new blood on board, which is part of why doctor / philosopher / Cambridge graduate Clemens (Corey Hawkins) ends up being hired to join their ranks.

Being based on an interesting yet very sparse chapter from a novel the way The Last Voyage of the Demeter is, you can see why screenwriters Bragi Schut Jr. and Zak Olkewicz felt the need to pad this story with even more salty sailors and a brief but important exchange between Eliot and the unnamed group of fearful Romani villagers who drop off the precious, mysterious cargo he’s meant to carry over the ocean. In the same way that you probably know what’s in the massive crate the Demeter takes on, none of the villagers responsible for bringing it to the ship want anything to do with it, and they’re all keen on getting back to their homes before the sun sets.

With a premise as straightforward as this — “what happens when a vampire sneaks its way onto a doomed boat and starts picking sailors off?” — the challenge the movie’s up against is one of finding a novel way of presenting a classic tale rather than full-on reworking the source material for modern sensibilities. Eliot, Clemens, and the rest of the Demeter’s crew set sail for England despite all of the obvious red flags that something’s wrong because the narrative needs them to, and there wouldn’t be much of a film if they all acted with common sense.

But rather than immediately getting to the important work of creating the kind of unsettling atmosphere you’d expect from a movie about Dracula on a 20th-century boat, The Last Voyage of the Demeter gets entirely too caught up trying to positively and negatively humanize its heroes with extraneous details that don’t add much to the story.

film last voyage of the demeter

While the film spends quite a bit of time impressing upon you how Clemens’ — who Hawkins inhabits with a steely reservedness that only eases up when he’s around Toby — Blackness makes people like Wojchek see him as less than, it does little to make Dracula’s (Javier Botet) first proper on-screen appearance really pop the way it should.

Whereas Stoker’s novel was able to give you a sense of the confusion, fear, and madness that gradually overtook the Demeter’s crew as their journey progressed, Øvredal’s film simply lays its events out without fully capitalizing on all the interesting ways it could have framed itself as a more cerebral and claustrophobic thriller. It isn’t until well into the film that everyone on the Demeter starts to become concerned with the fact that people are just straight-up disappearing from the ship while they’re in the middle of the ocean. That sort of willful ignorance can work in horror films, especially when the story’s done a solid job of establishing how and why people might be able to delude themselves into ignoring the obvious.

Here, though, it makes the Demeter’s crew seem almost comedically hapless and leaves the film feeling like it doesn’t know how else to scare viewers aside from occasionally pointing the camera at a monster dripping in VFX before it tears into someone’s throat. Thankfully, the film does pick up some much-needed momentum in its final third, which is marked by a wonderful sense of desperation and hopelessness that’s exactly what the rest of The Last Voyage of the Demeter needs. It’s just a shame that energy isn’t more evenly distributed because, when it’s present, you can see a glimpse of the truly great Dracula movie this could have been.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter also stars Nikolai Nikolaeff, Chris Walley, Nicolo Pasetti, and Sally Reeve. The film hits theaters on August 11th.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter Director Wants to Make ‘The Scariest Dracula Movie Ever’

Exclusive: Director André Øvredal invites us aboard The Last Voyage of the Demeter as the first trailer drops. The destination? A Dracula movie unlike any other.

Dracula in The Last voyage of the Demeter

An eclectic, wearied crew of working class stiffs; a mysterious last-minute change in the manifest that has them claiming unknown cargo; and a beast beneath the boards that’s picking them off one by one. It sounds like the stuff of Ridley Scott’s groundbreaking sci-fi/horror mashup, Alien (1979), but it could just as easily describe a brief and brutal section of Bram Stoker’s original 1897 novel, Dracula .

The last voyage of the Demeter, a Russian sailing vessel intended to cross between 19th century Bulgaria and Victorian England, comprises a mere five pages in the book, but they’ve left an impression on most readers who stumbled across them in the last century. Yet despite myriads of Dracula adaptations in the same number of years, the chapter’s never been extensively explored by an original film. Until now.

“That is what’s so fantastic about the script that Bragi Schut originally wrote,” Norwegian director André Øvredal tells us. “It’s basically Alien but on a ship out in the ocean. You’re lost at sea, and the crew doesn’t know what the hell is haunting them on the ship. It’s a beautiful take on the story.”

It also is a fresh way of returning to a familiar nightmare. Traditionally, the fate of the Demeter is relegated to a brief scene or two, or maybe even a montage, in most Dracula movies. Sometimes it’s omitted entirely. But by expanding the tale into its own feature-length movie, suddenly we have a nihilistic yarn about men and women unaware of what’s hidden within the 50 earth-boxes they’ve been charged with delivering to London… and when they do discover what is lurking within that soil, there isn’t a trace of camp in the fate that awaits.

Ad – content continues below

“Our idea, and it’s from that script, is that Dracula has a different personality in this movie than in any other movie that I’ve seen about Dracula,” Øvredal explains. “To have a more monstrous quality to him was what was intriguing as a take on the Dracula mythology. We don’t have the ordinary sophisticated aristocrat; we have a feral creature attacking a crew on a ship out on the ocean.”

In the trailer which was just released, Dracula certainly appears more bestial—resembling a cross between a giant bat and an outright demon—but when we press Øvredal if we might see Dracula take on a human form, he cryptically teases, “We do see him in other forms.” Stoker scholars will note that could also include as the mist, a wolflike beast, or even a cacophony of rats.

Øvredal seems just as intent about expanding the undead count’s milieu (and menu) of fellow travelers. The book sequence consists of the captain’s log and that narrow perspective on members of his crew. In the film, though, a wide and international cast has been assembled to add dimension to the ship’s doomed route.

“It’s a crew on a ship traveling from one end of Europe to the other,” says the director, “so there is a very broad sense of who can be on this ship. It’s a vivid crew of many nationalities, and we devised a group of people who felt natural for the time and place, and also some interesting characters who wouldn’t necessarily be obvious to have there.”

Straight Outta Compton and In the Heights ’ Corey Hawkins stars as Clemons, an Englishman who’s spent some time in a kind of self-imposed exile “drifting around” Romania and eastern Europe. Now his father has summoned him home. He knows how to be handy on a ship but as a doctor, he may prove vital in facing the pestilential impact of a vampire being aboard. Meanwhile Game of Thrones ’ Liam Cunningham stars as the ship’s captain, who in The Last Voyage of the Demeter is also a grandfather convinced against his better judgment to take the journey.

“Liam brings so much gravitas and so much wonderful life,” says Øvredal, “balancing being the captain of a cargo ship in 1897 with a sense of kindness. He also has his grandson on the ship, a little boy who he obviously has love and affection for.” In fact, he was persuaded by a benefactor to set sail after already retiring from the sea so he could raise the child. We all make mistakes.

While being a claustrophobic horror movie, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is a major undertaking within its genre. Øvredal has made high-concept chillers before, including 2010’s cult classic Troll Hunter and the Guillermo del Toro co-written Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark . However, Demeter included constructing a period vessel and commandeering an enormous water tank in Malta—where the director was told it’s the biggest ship ever used in that location. It also is a project that’s had a number of false starts with the original script passing between horror directors for years before finally landing at Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

For Øvredal, it’s a chance to directly confront some of his greatest influences, from the paterfamilias of Dracula movies, F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922), to Alien , and other tales of dread and doom. Still, the goal for the film is to also stand apart.

“My hope is that it is essentially the scariest Dracula movie ever made,” Øvredal says with a faint laugh. “That’s where I would love it to land if possible. If somebody says that, I’d be very happy.”

The Last Voyage of the Demeter sets sail into theaters on Aug. 11.

“he’s unrecognizable”: nicolas cage’s serial killer in new horror movie teased by longlegs director, 1 gritty fantasy series is the perfect a song of ice & fire replacement (& has movies in the works).

Warning: This post contains spoilers for The Last Voyage of the Demeter

  • The Last Voyage of the Demeter ends with the entire crew killed, except for Clemens. Clemens witnesses Anna's death and vows to pursue Dracula for revenge.
  • Carfax Abbey is revealed to be Dracula's estate in London, where he rests during the daytime before hunting at night.
  • Dracula and Anna are buried in Transylvanian soil, which is essential for restoring Dracula's strength during the day. The dragon symbol on the crates symbolizes Dracula's connection to Vlad the Impaler.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter ends with the entire crew of the Demeter — save for Clemens — killed. The supernatural horror film ends where it began: At the port of Whitby, with the ship having crashed into the harbor and the captain’s log having been found. Clemens, meanwhile, drifts at sea, having just witnessed the death of Anna, who reveals she was turned by Dracula. Though Clemens’ blood transfusions staved off the infection for a while, Anna didn’t want to live the life of a vampire.

Knowing she now had a choice in the matter, whereas she didn’t when she was offered to Dracula by her people, Anna chose to be burned by the sun than live the life of the undead. After her death, Clemens (Corey Hawkins) makes it ashore. Instead of going on with his life, the doctor vows to pursue Dracula and kill him for the death he’s caused. Clemens starts with the mystery of Carfax Abbey. Now that he knows Dracula can be burned by the sun, Clemens intends to kill him while he rests. But Clemens belatedly realizes his neck injury makes it so Dracula can sense him and vice versa.

Who Is Behind The Mysterious Carfax Abbey?

Throughout the film, the mystery surrounding Carfax Abbey deepens. It is what signed off on the transport of Count Dracula and his cargo, but there doesn’t seem to be any other information about it. Clemens looks it up when he arrives in England, and it seems to be a location where Dracula is holed up. What The Last Voyage of the Demeter doesn’t explain is that Carfax Abbey is actually an estate Dracula bought in London, and it’s where he lays to rest in the daytime before stalking the city for victims at night.

Considering Dracula had meticulously prepared for his trip, it’s likely that he’d bought Carfax Abbey long before the Demeter was set to sail. Dracula is intelligent, and didn’t want anyone to ask questions. In Bram Stoker’s Dracula , the estate is simply referred to by the first part of its name. Carfax Abbey is also a fictitious place, though it is based on the real-life Whitby Abbey in England. Whitby is also the name of the port at which the Demeter arrives.

Captain Elliot’s Last Words Explained

Captain Elliot is forever changed following the death of his grandson Toby, but he agrees that the Demeter must go down in the hopes of killing Dracula once and for all. Just before his death, Captain Elliot tells Clemens, “Let them know I was true to my trust.” While it seemed as though Elliot was speaking in general, perhaps about his honor as a captain, it’s more than likely he wanted others to know that he was right all along about Clemens. Throughout the voyage, Captain Elliot was one of the only people to believe in Clemens, trusting him with the life of Toby and Anna.

Clemens had long been dismissed because he was a Black man, discredited and not given opportunities despite his credentials. Captain Elliot believed Clemens was not only a good man, but good at his job. Elliot’s last words signified he was right to trust Clemens. What’s more, Elliot believed Wojchek would have made a good captain, and the fact that the latter agreed to go down with the ship and ultimately trusted Clemens with the plan — despite Wojchek’s earlier antagonism towards Clemens — solidified Captain Elliot’s decisions to rely on both characters. Elliot’s last words held weight for Clemens, even if he turned toward revenge.

The Real Reason Dracula & Anna Are Buried In Soil

The entirety of Count Dracula’s cargo was made up of crates of soil. Dracula and Anna were buried in them, so deeply that no one realized at first that there was anyone inside. Initially, the soil seemed like an odd choice. It covered up Dracula well enough, but he was bringing it along to London because the soil itself was from Transylvania — Dracula’s homeland. The Transylvanian soil is needed for Dracula to restore his strength during the day while he sleeps.

This is especially pertinent because Dracula was leaving Transylvania behind for London, and the soil was a requirement as he made his home in a new place. Without being surrounded or buried in Transylvanian soil, Dracula would not be as powerful as he aimed to be. Of course, the Demeter’s crew didn’t know the soil was so important, only that it was an odd thing to be buried in. Perhaps if Anna had an inkling regarding why he needed to be buried in it, the crew could have come up with a plan to rid Dracula of his beloved soil, sapping him of his energy.

The Meaning Of Dracula’s Dragon Symbol

Dracula’s coffin — and the other crates making up the Demeter’s cargo — was decorated with the dragon symbol. The reason behind the symbol isn’t explained in The Last Voyage of the Demeter , but the dragon is synonymous with Dracula himself, whose name means “son of the dragon.” Bram Stoker is said to have been influenced by Vlad III Dracul, also known as Vlad the Impaler.

Vlad III was the son of Vlad II, who was a member of the Order of the Dragon beginning in 1431, and whose emblem was a symbol of the dragon. In modern Romanian, the name Dracul refers to the devil. In the film, Anna often calls Dracula the devil because of his actions, the hold he has on people, and the death he brings wherever he goes. Thus, Dracula and the devil become one and the same, born from the dragon and transformed over time, an ancient entity whose symbol brings terror.

What The Last Voyage Of The Demeter Changes From The Book

“The Captain’s Log” chapter in Stoker’s Dracula lays the groundwork for The Last Voyage of the Demeter , but the film’s screenwriters alter or add a few things to expand upon the existing story. In the book, the Demeter sets sail in the summer of 1893, whereas the voyage in the film takes place in 1897. The sea captain is found lashed to the wheel of the ship in the book, but he is freed by Clemens before he dies in the movie. The names of the crew, and the details of exactly what happened daily on the ship, are additions to the film, as are Clemens and Toby.

How The Last Voyage Of The Demeter’s Ending Sets Up A Sequel

The Last Voyage of the Demeter ends with the entirety of the ship’s crew dead, but Clemens manages to survive. Dracula has made his way to London and is fully aware of Clemens’ presence. It’s Clemens’ vow to find and kill Dracula that essentially sets up a sequel to the horror film. The moment in the pub is charged with revenge, surprise, and a challenge from Dracula, as though daring Clemens to kill him.

While the Demeter’s story is over, the film’s final scene seems to be hinting towards more to come. Clemens’ hunt for Dracula has only just begun when the film ends, and a sequel could follow Clemens in this next chapter. That said, a sequel to The Last Voyage of the Demeter has not yet been confirmed, and it’s unclear whether there will be one. Even if a sequel never materializes, one can imagine that Clemens will struggle in killing Dracula, a formidable foe, but there is always hope he might succeed.

Every David Lynch Movie, Ranked (and Where To Watch Them)

Although it has been nearly two decades since David Lynch’s last feature film, many viewers remain hopeful that the legendary filmmaker will one day direct another movie. Given the experimental, mystifying, absurd, and surreal nature of many of his works, he is often considered one of Hollywood's most intriguing and important contemporary directors. Although it’s unknown if he will ever direct another feature film, there are plenty of existing Lynch masterpieces to delve into. This guide will rank all of David Lynch’s feature films as well as reveal where to watch them using popular streaming services like Netflix , Prime Video , Max and more!

One of David Lynch’s most notable films is the one that kickstarted his career: Eraserhead . The low-budget surrealist body horror movie follows Henry Spencer (Jack Nance), a young man who finds himself raising a baby with deformities. Its experimental nature, sexual undertones, and body horror initially horrified and disturbed viewers. However, the film picked up popularity as a midnight film and is now considered a masterpiece, given its surrealist nature, highlighting of human anxiety, and the numerous ways it can be interpreted.

Lynch’s next movie, The Elephant Man , was less experimental and, thus, less divisive than his feature film debut. Starring John Hurt and Sir Anthony Hopkins, the film is inspired by the true story of Joseph Merrick, a man with deformities who lived in London in the late 19th century. It received high critical acclaim for its beautiful black-and-white cinematography and heartbreaking, moving exploration of humanity.

Although his biographical film The Elephant Man was a hit, David Lynch returned to his surrealist and experimental films many times in his career. Blue Velvet and Inland Empire are among his best works in these areas. Blue Velvet achieved cult status and is considered one of the best mystery movies ever for spinning a dark, ambiguous tale from a severed ear. Although Inland Empire earned less fanfare than most Lynch movies, the Laura Dern -led psychological thriller is notable for being one of his most abstract, surreal, and dream-like films yet.

David Lynch has also proven his versatility as a filmmaker, surprising viewers with his family-friendly The Straight Story , a hyperrealistic but beautifully crafted movie that couldn’t be further from surrealism. Meanwhile, even his less successful films, including his take on the Dune franchise and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me , have stirred lively debates among viewers and earned re-evaluations.

Where To Watch Every Film in The Conjuring Universe in Order

Where To Watch Every Film in The Conjuring Universe in Order

The Conjuring Universe is the most successful horror franchise of all time, and its story isn’t over yet. Creator James Wan has confirmed the main series will soon conclude with The Conjuring: Last Rites , although the franchise will continue to live on in the form of a spinoff TV series and potential spinoff movies. For those who want to delve into the franchise before the next movie premieres, this guide will explain where and how to watch The Conjuring Universe in order using streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Max and more.

In 2013, the franchise began with The Conjuring . Every movie in the franchise is inspired by the purportedly true haunting cases documented by real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The first movie sees Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) investigate the Perron family, who believe their new farmhouse in Rhode Island may be haunted. It proved a major success at the box office and earned high praise from critics for the performances of Farmiga and Wilson, the jump scares, and the tense atmosphere crafted by director Wan.

The first film’s success soon led to The Conjuring 2 and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It , with Farmiga and Wilson reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine. The Conjuring 2 adapts the Enfield poltergeist case, while the third movie tackles the Arne Cheyenne Johnson murder investigation, which marked the first murder trial in U.S. history where a defendant claimed innocence due to demonic possession.

Both movies were successful commercially, though the third film’s departure from its haunted house formula drew mixed reviews. Since viewers couldn’t get enough of the Warrens' terrifying and allegedly true cases, the franchise soon created the Annabelle and The Nun film series. Annabelle fashions a horror story from an allegedly haunted Raggedy Ann doll found in the Warrens’ Occult Museum. Meanwhile, The Nun and its sequel, The Nun II , were loosely inspired by the Warrens’ reports of meeting a ghostly nun.

All of the Annabelle and Nun movies were commercial hits, demonstrating the enduring appeal of The Conjuring Universe with its blend of alleged truth and fiction and return to classic horror with haunted houses, dolls, and jump scares. Meanwhile, the end of The Nun II features a cameo from Farmiga and Wilson, teasing the movie’s connection to The Conjuring: Last Rites.

How to watch The Conjuring Universe in order

Viewers can watch The Conjuring Universe in either release date or chronological order. Chronological order may be preferable because it ensures viewers have context for certain cases mentioned in The Conjuring movies. However, chronological order can be complex, given that films like Annabelle: Creation occur across multiple years.

For this article, we have listed the movies chronologically based on the most prominent year featured in each film. For example, although Annabelle: Creation starts in 1943, the majority of the movie takes place in 1955, resulting in the film coming after The Nun, which takes place in 1952. Here is the chronological order:

Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle Comes Home

The Conjuring 

The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Alternatively, one can also stream The Conjuring films in the release date order detailed below. Read on to find out where to watch every entry in this franchise online in the United States.

Every Neon Genesis Evangelion TV Show and Movie in Order (And Where To Watch Them)

Every Neon Genesis Evangelion TV Show and Movie in Order (And Where To Watch Them)

Since its release in 1995, Neon Genesis Evangelion has remained one of the most popular anime series of all time. It has grown into a sprawling media franchise that includes many films, books, manga series, and even amusement park attractions. Creator Hideaki Anno has also remained open to the idea of future TV shows and anime films under a new filmmaker. For those interested in delving into the franchise, this guide will demonstrate where to watch every Neon Genesis Evangelion film and TV show in order using streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video, Crunchyroll and more!

The franchise started in 1994 with a manga series of the same name to advertise the upcoming TV show. By 1995, Neon Genesis Evangelion arrived and told the story of Shinji Ikari, a teenage boy recruited by his estranged father, Gendo Ikari, to pilot Evangelion bio-machines and fight mysterious beings known as Angels. The show went far beyond the typical mecha anime and impressed viewers with its religious motifs and philosophical themes. It has since been hailed as one of the most outstanding anime series of all time.

However, its somewhat ambiguous ending received mixed reviews from viewers. As a result, Anno decided to make two films, Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death and Rebirth and The End of Evangelion , to provide an alternate ending to the anime series. Following the critical acclaim of The End of Evangelion, Anno decided he wasn’t done with the franchise yet and became chief director of the Rebuild of Evangelion film series.

Similar to the previous two films, the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy served as yet another alternate telling of Neon Genesis Evangelion. Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone and Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance essentially reshot episodes 1 - 23 of the anime with minor changes, while Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo diverged into a new story, and Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time offered a new ending.

There is also an original net animation (ONA) series called Petit Eva: Evangelion@School , which parodies the original series, and the short film Evangelion: Another Impact—Confidential . Also, be aware of the numerous unification films, such as Revival of Evangelion, which, despite its new title, is simply a double feature of Death and Rebirth and The End of Evangelion.

Where can I watch Neon Genesis Evangelion online?

Given the many remakes and alternate endings, the only way to watch the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise is by the release date order below. Read on to find out where you can stream every entry in this popular franchise!

Where to Watch Every Entry in the PAW Patrol Franchise

Where to Watch Every Entry in the PAW Patrol Franchise

In 2013, as superhero mania began to dominate Hollywood, another group of heroes emerged: the PAW Patrol. Led by the young boy Ryder, the team consisted of some unexpected members…puppies. There was Chase the police German Shepherd; Marshall, the firefighting dalmatian; and Skye, the piloting cockapoo, among others. But this kids’ show ended up taking the world by storm, eventually becoming a massive franchise. Use our guide below to find out where you can watch every entry in the PAW Patrol franchise in order using popular streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Paramount+ and more!

The entire franchise began in 2013 with the original PAW Patrol series. The show is still airing, currently on its 10th season. So far, PAW Patrol has amassed over 250 episodes, and with its enduring popularity, season 11 is on the way. In each episode, the PAW Patrol must save someone and usually fight off some kind of “bad guy”. But being a kids show (mostly for very young kids) the series is often free of violence, with the action being more wholesome.

Starting in 2016, PAW Patrol began producing hour-long films. In North America, they were released as TV movies, but in other parts of the world, they actually went to theaters, sometimes grossing millions of dollars. Some of the most popular movie specials were Ready, Race, Rescue! and Jet to the Rescue .

But in 2021, PAW Patrol finally got their first official, big-screen debut with Paw Patrol: The Movie . In the film, the PAW Patrol discovers their arch-nemesis Mayor Humdinger has just been elected to lead the nearby Adventure City. Sensing the coming mischief, the team heads out to save the city. Once again, the conflict and action are all super family-friendly, with one of the disasters being that the mayor has constructed a roller coaster-style loop for the city’s subway (which to me sounds like a lot of fun).

In 2023, PAW Patrol returned with another major film, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie . In the film, a strange meteor crashes into Earth. Inside are several crystals, each giving the pups superpowers. But with their new abilities, the pups must face their biggest foe yet. The movie was a massive hit, grossing more than $202 million at the worldwide box office. That same year PAW Patrol also received the spinoff series Rubble & Crew , which has also been renewed for a new season.

PAW Patrol franchise in release order: 

  • PAW Patrol (2013-Present)
  • PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups (2018)
  • Ready, Race, Rescue! (2019)
  • Jet to the Rescue (2020)
  • PAW Patrol: The Movie (2021)
  • Rubble & Crew (2023-Present)
  • PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie (2023)

Every James Cameron Movie Ranked (and Where to Watch Them)

Every James Cameron Movie Ranked (and Where to Watch Them)

If you look at the five highest-grossing movies of all time, three of them have been directed by James Cameron. He knows how to strike the perfect balance between action, emotion, strong characters, and visual spectacle, creating an entire filmography of must-watch films. But what are Cameron’s best movies? Check out our guide below to find out where to watch every James Cameron movie (and discover which are his best).

There aren’t really any “bad” James Cameron movies. The director has somehow managed to create hit after hit, giving audiences four decades of masterpieces. But if someone had to choose, Cameron’s first film Piranha II: The Spawning could be considered his “worst”. The movie was a sequel to the schlocky 1978 horror hit Piranha , which was all about… killer piranhas. This time around, the piranhas are even more deadly and they can fly! Somehow, the movie is so bombastic and ridiculous that it’s actually hard to consider it a bad movie. It’s so insane that it becomes laugh-out-loud funny and is great to watch with friends.

On the other end of the Cameron spectrum, we have his best movies. Taking the #1 spot as the best James Cameron movie ever is Aliens . This sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 horror classic follows Ellen Ripley as she discovers that terraformers have attempted to colonize LV-426 – the same moon the xenomorph came from. Obviously, things don’t go well for the terraformers and it’s up to Ripley and her team to save them. Aliens swaps out some of the suspense from the original for more action and adventure, creating a unique action-horror movie that works flawlessly. Aliens isn’t just a great sequel, it also complements the original perfectly by shifting genres, making both films equally amazing for completely different reasons.

And of course, we can’t talk about James Cameron without talking about Titanic . The film takes the #2 spot on our list. For over a decade it was the highest-grossing movie ever and it was the first film to make over $1 billion at the box office. Staying true to Cameron’s genre-blending style, Titanic was loaded with romance, drama, and action. The movie tells a romantic love story between two passengers, Jack and Rose. But as the ship begins to sink, Titanic’s vibe completely changes, becoming a hardcore disaster film. Viewers who aren’t into romantic dramas will still be captivated by the unbelievably true disaster the doomed ocean liner experienced in the middle of the Atlantic.

Also ranking high on the list is Cameron’s often-overlooked hit The Abyss . Released in 1989 (just a few months before the Cold War ended), the movie imagines a near-future where Americans and Soviets are racing to retrieve a sunken submarine. Making everything worse is a looming hurricane that’s barreling toward both nations’ fleets. When America finally gets a dive team into the ocean, they begin experiencing strange phenomena and seeing unknown lifeforms. With claustrophobic conditions, a massive storm, and the excitement of unknown aliens, The Abyss is a fantastically captivating movie. It even won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects at the 1990 ceremony.

Here’s the full ranking of James Cameron’s films: 

Aliens  

T2: Judgement Day

Avatar: The Way of Water

The Terminator 

Avatar 

Piranha II: The Spawning

Every Deadpool Movie In Order (and Where to Watch Them)

Every Deadpool Movie In Order (and Where to Watch Them)

The Deadpool movie series is set to expand with the release of Deadpool & Wolverine , featuring a crossover between Hugh Jackman’s Logan (a.k.a. Wolverine) and Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool) and marking Deadpool's first official entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe ( MCU ).

For those interested in catching up with all of the Deadpool movies, this guide shows you how and where to watch every movie in order. We'll also show you if you can watch them legally for free online.

Deadpool’s live-action career on the big screen had a shaky start with X-Men Origins: Wolverine . In the movie, he is introduced as Wilson, a katana-wielding mercenary who joins William Stryker’s (Danny Huston) Team X, along with Wolverine. However, Wilson becomes a victim of Stryker’s experiments and is transformed into Weapon XI. While Weapon XI had Deadpool’s incredible healing factor, he did not have his characteristic red suit. What’s even stranger is that he had his mouth sewn shut and was silent, even though he’s often referred to as the Merc with a Mouth. As a result, many criticized the movie’s non-traditional depiction of Deadpool.

Fortunately, when the timeline was reset in X-Men: Days of Future Past , it allowed 20th Century Fox to introduce an alternate version of the character in Deadpool . Reynolds reprised his role as Wilson, but viewers finally got a comic book-accurate version of the Merc with a Mouth. The R-rated movie captures Deadpool in all his vulgar, foul-mouthed glory, telling the tragic, bloody, and surprisingly humorous story of a man whose experimental cancer treatment leaves him mutilated and with an unparalleled healing factor.

It wasn’t long before Reynolds reprised his role as Deadpool in the short film Deadpool: No Good Deed to tease Deadpool 2 . The short film was played before Logan in some theaters, given that Deadpool has always tried to steal Wolverine’s glory. It was soon followed by the release of Deadpool 2, which introduced Josh Brolin’s Cable as he, Deadpool, and X-Force go on a zany time-traveling adventure to save humanity.

During the holidays, 20th Century Fox also released a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2, Once Upon a Deadpool , to allow a broader audience to see the film. After that, Deadpool’s fate was left uncertain as Disney acquired 20th Century Fox. Fortunately, the studio opted to bring Deadpool into the MCU, with Reynolds teasing the decision in the promotional short film Deadpool and Korg React. Disney celebrated its acquisition of the franchise by making Deadpool and Deadpool 2 the first R-rated movies available to stream on Disney+ and giving the greenlight to Deadpool & Wolverine.

Every Hannibal Lecter Movie and Series in Chronological Order (and Where to Watch Them)

Every Hannibal Lecter Movie and Series in Chronological Order (and Where to Watch Them)

Want to find out where you can watch every Hannibal Lecter movie (and series) in chronological order? Find out what order the series should be watched in, and find out where to watch each entry using our guide below.

In 1991, The Silence of the Lambs premiered and chilled audiences to their core. The film follows young FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) as she works to stop a killer known as Buffalo Bill, who kidnaps women and skins them. To ensure her success, she seeks the help of renowned forensic psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter. The problem is that Lecter is a serial killer himself and has his own nefarious intentions. Trapped between two killers, Starling must walk a tightrope to save Buffalo Bill’s victims, while also keeping herself alive.

But The Silence of the Lambs isn’t the original Hannibal Lecter story. The movie was actually adapted from a sequel novel written in 1988. The original Hannibal book came out in 1981 and was titled Red Dragon. The Silence of the Lambs also wasn’t the first Hannibal movie. It was actually 1986’s Manhunter that first brought the infamous cannibal to the big screen (though he was played by Brian Cox instead of Anthony Hopkins). The movie is based on the original Red Dragon novel and centers on a detective who is almost murdered by Lecter. But once a new serial killer called the Tooth Fairy begins murdering families, he’s forced to seek Lecter’s help to save lives. In 2002, another film adaptation of Red Dragon arrived, this time having Hopkins reprise his now-iconic role as Lecter.

In 2006 a prequel novel was released titled Hannibal Rising, which then became the earliest entry in the series chronologically. The following year, a film adaptation premiered, this time with Gaspard Ulliel portraying the younger Hannibal Lecter. The film shows how Lecter’s tortured childhood during World War II caused him to become desensitized to murder while also leaving him with long-lasting, unresolved trauma, thus explaining his descent into murder and cannibalism.

The final entry in the Hannibal series is 2001’s Hannibal . Based on the 1999 novel of the same name, the film takes place a decade after The Silence of the Lambs, and Clarice Starling is now played by Julianne Moore. The movie is far more outlandish than the previous entries and shows a strange bond develop between Starling and Lecter. The movie is also filled with way more gore than the previous films, including wild hog mutilations, eating human brains, and more. Still, Hannibal was a huge success at the box office.

Here’s how to watch the Hannibal Lecter movies both in order of release and chronologically.

By Order of Release: 

Manhunter (1986)

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Hannibal (2001)

Red Dragon (2002)

Hannibal Rising (2007)

By Chronological Order:

Hannibal Rising

The Silence of the Lambs

Fans of the franchise should also check out the highly acclaimed series Hannibal . While it doesn’t fit perfectly into the timeline, it’s still a fantastic series that’s developed a devout cult following thanks to its complex characters and excellent suspense. Another series, Clarice , premiered in 2021. Unlike Hannibal, it is very much rooted within the official timeline, taking place shortly after the events of The Silence of the Lambs.

From The Matrix to Her: Where To Watch the 25 Best Films About AI, Ranked

From The Matrix to Her: Where To Watch the 25 Best Films About AI, Ranked

Humanity has always been interested in the concept of artificial intelligence (AI), which is why the film industry has been tackling it since the first AI movie, Metropolis , in 1927. For decades, filmmakers have hypothesized and even warned about what a world with near-sentient, intelligent machines would look like. Now that real-life technology, such as GPT-4o, is genuinely starting to resemble the AI seen in movies like Her , interest in these movies is only increasing.

For those interested in AI from a filmmaker’s perspective, this guide will explain where to watch the 25 best movies about AI.

Some of the best AI movies are also some of the best sci-fi movies ever made, including The Matrix , 2001: A Space Odyssey , and Blade Runner . The Matrix sees Neo ( Keanu Reeves ), Morpheus (Laurence Fishburn), and Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss) seek the truth about the reality they live in. It warned of unchecked technological advancement, probing a dark world where AI enslaves humanity, trapping them in a virtual reality.

The idea of a dystopian world where AI takes over humanity has been explored in countless films, including  The Creator , Ex Machina , Westworld , and I Am Mother . In fact, even back in the 1970s, films like Colossus: The Forbin Project were already exploring malevolent intelligent machines, highlighting the long-standing anxiety over advanced technology.

Some movies, like Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, explore AI exerting control in a smaller capacity. However, Kubrick’s film is one of the most chilling, given that the AI, depicted as a simple red light, resembles modern voice recognition technology like Siri and Alexa.

Then, movies like Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner delve into other issues with AI, primarily the difficult question of what draws the line between humans and technology. As Rick Deckard ( Harrison Ford ) falls for a lifelike “Replicant,” it begs the question of what it will mean to be human once technology and humans become indistinguishable.

There are additional movies like Blade Runner where AI isn’t necessarily evil.

In films like Star Wars and Iron Man , AI machines like C-3PO and J.A.R.V.I.S. are friendly droids and AI assistants who help save the world. In the Joaquin Phoenix -led Her and Sam Rockwell-led Moon , the movies explore the concept of AI as a coping mechanism for human loneliness. Pixar’s 2008 animated hit WALL-E even delves into how AI may take charge simply because of sheer human laziness.

Where to watch the best movies about AI online

Whether it’s exploring dystopian worlds with evil AI, probing the concept of what it means to be human, delving into human-machine relationships, or exploring the potential of advanced technology, countless great movies have been made about AI.

Here is where to watch the 25 best AI movies ranked by quality, popularity, and how sophisticated their commentary on AI is.

15 of the Best Steven Spielberg Movies (and Where to Watch Them)

15 of the Best Steven Spielberg Movies (and Where to Watch Them)

Steven Spielberg is one of (if not the) best directors in Hollywood history. He’s been nominated for a lofty 22 Oscars and has won three. On top of that, he’s directed some of the biggest blockbusters ever that have grossed billions upon billions of dollars and become cultural landmarks that have shaped not just entertainment, but our daily lives. So, what are the filmmaker’s best movies? Use our guide below to discover the best Steven Spielberg movies and where to stream them.

You can’t talk about Spielberg without talking about Jaws . Centered around a New England town that’s battling a man-eating shark, Jaws is so terrifying that many horror fans even consider it a horror movie. The shark animatronic was a modern marvel at the time and some scenes still look downright terrifying to this day. But what makes the movie even more impressive is that it was Spielberg’s first major film. He was just 26 years old when he directed the feature. The movie was so powerful that it actually fueled society’s paranoia about sharks and led to a massive increase in the killings of great whites . Spielberg regrets the impact his film had on wildlife, but creating such an evocative story is impressive nonetheless.

Spielberg is also credited with reinvigorating society’s interest in dinosaurs thanks to Jurassic Park . The movie centers around an island theme park where resurrected dinosaurs are the main attraction. Naturally, it all goes to hell and the dinos break out of their cages, causing absolute chaos. With great actors, a great story, and great special and practical effects, Jurassic Park continues to be a beloved movie that fans watch over and over again. A new film in the franchise is also currently in the pre-production stage, so more dino chaos is on the way!

On top of his blockbuster hits, Spielberg is also known for his award-winning masterpieces (many of which also became blockbuster hits). His first Oscar nomination came in 1978 for Close Encounters of the Third Kind . The film shows what humanity’s first encounter with extraterrestrials might be like, and it’s filled with a great sense of wonder… and suspense. That combination makes Close Encounters a unique entry in the alien genre because it isn’t about the horror of an alien takeover, but instead focuses on the mix of fear, curiosity, and excitement that people would likely have.

Spielberg’s most lauded film though is 1994’s Schindler’s List . The film tells the true story of Oskar Schindler, a man who saved over a thousand Jewish people during the holocaust by bribing Nazi leaders to assure their safety. The movie was met with universal praise and received 12 Oscar nominations. Schindler’s List went on to win seven awards, including Best Picture and Best Director - both for Spielberg since he directed and produced the film.

While almost every Steven Spielberg movie is fantastic in its own right, here are 15 you absolutely need to watch, from E.T. to Indiana Jones , and more. Find out where to watch Steven Spielberg’s best movies using our guide below.

Where To Watch Francis Ford Coppola’s 15 Best Movies, Ranked

Where To Watch Francis Ford Coppola’s 15 Best Movies, Ranked

After a 13-year hiatus from directing, legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola has returned with a new film, Megalopolis , which is already causing a stir following its Cannes premiere . A prominent figure in the New Hollywood film movement, Coppola is often hailed as one of the greatest directors of all time for his cinematic masterpieces with larger-than-life characters and rich stories. For those interested in delving into his work before Megalopolis, this guide will demonstrate where to watch his 15 best films.

Even those unfamiliar with Coppola will likely have heard of his best film, The Godfather , which is often hailed as one of the greatest movies ever made. The Godfather is credited with revolutionizing the gangster genre as it humanized the Corleones and their love of family. Additionally, the storytelling is rich, the criminals larger-than-life, and the performances of Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone and Al Pacino as Michael Corleone blew audiences away.

While the sequel, The Godfather II , couldn’t match the original's groundbreaking nature and historical significance, it is easily one of the greatest movie sequels ever made. The film arguably adds more depth and an even darker tone as it continues to delve into Michael’s deterioration intercut with masterfully crafted flashbacks of Vito’s ( Robert de Niro ) life.

Another movie that almost eclipsed The Godfather in quality and impact is Apocalypse Now . It is based on Joseph Conrad’s thought-provoking novel Heart of Darkness but switches the setting to the Vietnam War. Featuring the talents of Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, and Laurence Fishburne, Apocalypse Now is one of the most haunting, mesmerizing, and unforgettable war epics of all time.

Although often overshadowed by The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, The Conversation also warrants special mention in discussions of Coppola’s greatest works. The movie follows surveillance expert Harry Caul (Gene Hackman), who faces an intense moral dilemma when he realizes the couple he has been tailing may be at the center of a murder plot. It’s a simple plot, but the layers to the story are numerous as viewers delve deep into the nightmarish sense of paranoia and probe questions of morals and power.

In addition to four of the greatest movies of all time, Coppola has made many more well-received hits ranging from the zany and amusing You’re a Big Boy Now to the experimental road trip drama The Rain People to the horror vampire film Bram Stoker’s Dracula .

If you’re looking for more of Coppola’s greatest works, see below for where to watch his 15 best films ranked by their quality, popularity, and historical significance.

Where To Watch Every Star Wars Live-Action and Animated TV Show in Order

Where To Watch Every Star Wars Live-Action and Animated TV Show in Order

The Star Wars franchise expanded in 2024 with the live-action TV series The Acolyte . Set 100 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace , The Acolyte marks one of the shows to take advantage of the vast galaxy and timeline the franchise has to work with. For those interested in further exploring Star Wars’ TV show collection, this guide will demonstrate how and where to watch all the live-action and animated Star Wars TV shows in order.

While most are familiar with the Disney+ Star Wars shows, the franchise moved to the small screen long before Disney’s acquisition. By 1985, sister animated series Ewoks and Star Wars: Droids arrived on ABC and followed the adventures of the Ewoks, R2-D2, and C-3PO. However, it would be over two decades until the next TV show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars , arrived.

Fortunately, by 2003, George Lucas had established Lucasfilm Animation, which rang in a new era of Star Wars TV shows. Star Wars: The Clone Wars follows Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano between the events of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith . It went on to earn high critical acclaim for its groundbreaking visuals, voice performances, and story. Star Wars: The Clone Wars later received an equally well-received spinoff series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch .

Another prominent animated series is Star Wars Rebels , which follows Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, Sabine Wren, and the rest of the Ghost Crew as they retaliate against the Galactic Empire’s oppressive rule following Order 66.

In 2019, the first live-action Star Wars series arrived with The Mandalorian . Set after the Galactic Empire's fall, The Mandalorian won fans over with its tale of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), a bounty hunter entrusted with protecting a Force-sensitive youngling, Grogu, from the remnants of the Empire. The series also brought back Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) from the Star Wars movies and transitioned Ahsoka to live-action, portrayed by Rosario Dawson . Out of The Mandalorian’s success came the spinoff series The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka .

The franchise has explored additional periods through its shows, too, such as the Rebellion with Star Wars: Andor or post-Order 66 in Obi-Wan Kenobi . 

How to watch all the Star Wars TV shows in order

Unlike Marvel or DC, Star Wars TV shows aren’t divided into different universes. Almost all the shows are largely considered canon except the early Ewoks and Droids series and the anthology series Star Wars: Visions . Meanwhile, every series fits somewhere within the overall Star Wars timeline, making it possible to watch them in chronological order. Star Wars: Visions is the only show that doesn’t fit in the chronological order since it spans multiple timelines.

Otherwise, here are all the Star Wars TV shows chronologically:

Young Jedi Adventures

The Acolyte

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Star Wars: Droids

Star Wars: Tales of the Empire

Star Wars: The Bad Batch

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Star Wars Rebels

Star Wars: Andor

The Mandalorian

The Book of Boba Fett

Star Wars Resistance

Where to watch all the Star Wars TV Shows online

There are a few problems with watching in chronological order: many TV shows take place over multiple years, they are difficult to place because they are anthologies, or, in the case of The Mandalorian season 3 and Ahsoka season 1, sometimes run concurrently with one another. Hence, another approach is simply to watch all the Star Wars TV shows by the release date order which is provided below:

Furiosa and 10 Other George Miller Movies You Need to Watch (and Where to Stream Them)

Furiosa and 10 Other George Miller Movies You Need to Watch (and Where to Stream Them)

George Miller easily has one of the most unique directorial careers in Hollywood history. On one hand, he’s known for directing all the Mad Max movies , making him one of the most prolific action directors ever. But did you know that he’s also directed quite a few successful family films as well? Remember watching Happy Feet … that movie about the singing penguins? Yep, that’s George Miller too.

So, check out our guide below to find out where you can watch all of George Miller’s best movies, from action hits to kid’s favorites and more.

Miller is best known for creating, writing, and directing Mad Max . The film takes place in a post-apocalyptic Australia where the overconsumption of fossil fuels has created so much pollution that ecocide has virtually destroyed all plant life on Earth, forcing humans to battle for the few precious resources that are left. Unlike many franchises, where the directors are constantly swapped out, Miller has had full control of Mad Max since the beginning and has stayed on as director for every film in the franchise, including Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga . He’ll also be directing the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road sequel, Mad Max: The Wasteland.

In 1998, Miller went in a completely different direction when he wrote and directed the children’s classic Babe: Pig in the City , which was a sequel to 1995’s Babe (a movie that he wrote). This time around, Babe finds himself lost in the big city and eventually goes on a whirlwind adventure with the help of some of his animal pals.

Miller’s newfound reputation as a family film director grew even bigger in 2006 when he released the hit film Happy Feet. The movie was a jukebox musical following the life of penguins… who happen to absolutely love singing and dancing. The movie had a huge cast of A-List talent like Elijah Wood, Nicole Kidman, and Hugh Jackman , and featured songs like ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ by Elvis and ‘Somebody to Love’ by Queen. The movie became a huge hit, grossing more than $384 million at the box office. In 2011, Miller returned to write, produce, and direct its sequel, Happy Feet Two .

One often-overlooked project of Miller’s was his involvement in 1983’s Twilight Zone: The Movie . The film was an anthology feature with different directors creating vignettes, similar to the TV show. For the film, Miller remade the iconic 1963 episode ‘Nightmare at 20,000 ft.’ where William Shatner played an airplane passenger who sees a gremlin on the wing of the plane. In Miller’s remake, John Lithgow takes over Shatner’s role and thanks to newer practical effects, the gremlin looks much more realistic and terrifying.

Where To Watch Every Naruto Movie and TV Show in Order

Where To Watch Every Naruto Movie and TV Show in Order

Naruto is one of the longest-running and most popular anime of all time. Based on Masashi Kishimoto's manga of the same name, the series has captivated audiences with its story of one young ninja’s dream to become the Hokage of his village. However, with a two-part anime series, a spinoff series, and 11 anime movies , the Naruto franchise can be daunting to dive into. Hence, this guide will demonstrate where and how to watch every Naruto show and film in order.

The TV series kicked off in 2002 with Naruto , which follows Naruto Uzumaki, an orphaned boy who is ostracized by his village for having the Nine-Tailed Fox sealed in his body. Eager for acceptance, Uzumaki works to prove his skill as a ninja, eventually joining Kakashi Hatake’s Team 7 with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno to complete missions and protect the village.

After Naruto concluded in 2007 with 220 episodes, Naruto Shippūden was released that same year. Naruto Shippūden is considered Part 2 of the anime series, serving as a direct sequel to the original series and following Uzumaki during his teenage years. The series begins with a two-year time skip, during which Uzumaki was training with ninjutsu master Jiraiya. Upon returning, he resumes his ninja missions with Team 7 and seeks to bring Sasuke home after the boy leaves, seeking revenge on his brother.

Interspersed throughout both series are 11 films; three premiered during Naruto’s run, while the latter eight premiered during Naruto Shippūden. Of all the films, only the 2014 movie, The Last: Naruto the Movie , is a canon in the series. The 2014 film, along with Boruto: Naruto The Movie , is among the most well-received films, as it largely leads into the Naruto spinoff series. Naruto The Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow and Road to Ninja: The Naruto Movie are also often heralded as fan favorites.

As mentioned above, the Naruto series received a spinoff series, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations , which focuses on the eponymous son of Naruto. The series’ first part concluded last year, while the second part, Boruto: Two Blue Vortex, is still awaiting a release date as the manga tries to get ahead of the show.

How to watch the Naruto franchise in chronological and release date order

Although the movies aren’t canon, they are meant to accompany the series and sometimes reference events from their complementary episodes. For those who don’t mind jumping between the shows and movies, the chronological order of the Naruto franchise is as follows:

Naruto Episodes 1 - 101

Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow

Naruto Episodes 101 - 160

Naruto the Movie: Legend of the Stone of Gelel

Naruto Episodes 161 - 196

Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom

Naruto Episodes 197 - 220

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 1 - 32

Naruto Shippūden the Movie

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 33 - 71

Naruto Shippūden the Movie: Bonds

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 72 - 126

Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Will of Fire

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 127 - 143

Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Lost Tower

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 144 - 196

Naruto Shippūden the Movie: Blood Prison

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 197 - 251

Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 252 - 493

The Last: Naruto the Movie

Naruto Shippūden Episodes 494 - 500

Boruto: Naruto the Movie

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episodes 1 - 293

However, since the movies aren’t canon to the series, another option is to watch each series in full, followed by their respective films in release date order, as seen below.

Where To Watch the 10 Best Michael Bay Movies, Ranked

Where To Watch the 10 Best Michael Bay Movies, Ranked

From Bad Boys to Transformers , Michael Bay is the director behind some of the most well-known action franchises and film series. While critics often erroneously reduce his work to little more than explosions and formulaic action heroes, Bay’s craftsmanship and technical filmmaking skills are paralleled by few in the industry. All of his films have a distinct style and demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of every aspect of filmmaking, from set scenery to camera speed and angles.

For those interested in the films that best illustrate Bay’s skill as a director, this guide will explore his 10 best movies and where to watch them.

In recent years, Bay has shifted more to producing. He is the producer behind two of the year's most-anticipated movies: A Quiet Place: Day One and Transformers One . For the purposes of this article, though, we’ll be focusing on the films that gained him prominence as a director.

One of Michael Bay’s most enduring films is the one that started his career: Bad Boys . The 1995 buddy cop comedy starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence earned praise for its frantic pace, the dynamic between Smith and Lawrence, the extended action sequences, and the hilarious tale of two reckless detectives searching for missing narcotics. It was a substantial enough commercial success to earn three sequels, although Bay only returned to direct Bad Boys II , which further ramped up the action, dark humor, and stunning visual effects.

After his directorial debut, Bay followed up with arguably the best film of his career, The Rock . Boasting a stacked cast including Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery, the film tells the thrilling story of an Alcatraz break-in. It boasts some of the most extravagant action sequences of any Bay movie and runs at a pace that keeps the adrenaline pumping for every minute of its runtime.

Meanwhile, Pain & Gain and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi are notable as Bay’s most mature and sophisticated movies. Pain & Gain, starring Mark Wahlberg , Anthony Mackie, and Dwayne Johnson , sees Bay expertly craft his filmmaking to convey the satirical and dark tone of the story, while 13 Hours thrillingly and heartbreakingly captures the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Bay’s penchant for groundbreaking visual effects and larger-than-life action plots was also well-suited for the exhilarating and visually stunning Transformers. At the same time, his love of breakneck pacing elevated the Jake Gyllenhaal -led Ambulance to one unforgettable car chase thriller.

If you’re looking for more unforgettable action thrillers in Bay’s signature filmmaking style, read on for his ten best movies, ranked from the best.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence returned to their iconic roles as Mike and Marcus in 2024's Bad Boys: Ride or Die . It marked the fourth film in the franchise and latest entry in the series since the finale of the spin-off show  LA’s Finest in late 2020. If you want to find out where to watch every Bad Boys movie, check out our list below which provides information on where to stream the movies on platforms like Netflix , Max , Prime Video and more!

The first Bad Boys movie premiered in 1995, and on top of being a blockbuster hit for Smith and Lawrence, it also served as the breakout role for actress Téa Leoni. In the film, Smith and Lawrence play two police detectives in Miami who are trying to find a massive cache of heroin that’s been stolen from the department’s evidence locker. Things get even more complicated when they’re forced to provide protection for a woman who witnessed a mob hit. The movie grossed almost $66 million in North America alone, making it a bona fide hit.

Thanks to the home rental market, the film continued to be popular, and in 2003 it received a sequel: Bad Boys 2 . This time around, Smith and Lawrence were joined by more famous faces like Gabrielle Union and Michael Shannon. In the film, Mike and Marcus are investigating a drug trafficking ring and Mike is secretly seeing Marcus’ younger sister Syd (Union). But neither of the guys know that Syd is actually an undercover agent for the DEA. The dynamic between the three stars really helped keep the sequel feeling fresh and the movie became a smash hit, grossing more than $273 million at the box office.

The franchise then went dormant for almost 20 years, returning in 2019 with the spin-off series LA’s Finest . In the show, Union reprises her role as Syd and is joined by Jessica Alba who plays her partner at the LAPD. Sadly, the show premiered as a Spectrum Original back when the cable company was attempting to create original content. With hardly anyone knowing about the service or what Spectrum was, the show suffered from poor viewership. Just three years later, Spectrum announced it wouldn’t produce more shows after its handful of original series all performed poorly. The good news is that LA’s Finest has been given a second life on other streaming services.

In 2020, Bad Boys finally returned for a third film with Bad Boys for Life . Mike and Marcus return and encounter a vengeful enemy from their past who is hellbent on avenging his father (who was sent to prison after being caught by the duo). Released in January 2020, Bad Boys for Life was one of the only major blockbusters to be released in 2020 before the COVID pandemic shut down theaters around the world. The movie continued performing well in cinemas even through the weekend of March 7-8, just a few days before lockdown began. Still, despite COVID, Bad Boys for Life remains the highest-grossing film in the franchise, earning an impressive $426 million.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die found Miami's Finest turning into Miami's Most Wanted as the duo are on the run from the law after being accused of murdering their old Police Chief.

Where to Watch Guillermo del Toro’s Best Movies and TV Shows

Where to Watch Guillermo del Toro’s Best Movies and TV Shows

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is known for many things – he’s noted for his unique style that often takes inspiration from dark fairytales. He’s also an integral figure in the horror genre thanks to his numerous horror films (plus, he often cites classic horror movies as his inspirations), and in more recent years, he’s become known as an award-winning director who isn’t just popular with genre fans, but who can hold his own against the Hollywood greats.

If you want to watch del Toro’s best movies and TV shows, use our guide below to find out where they are streaming.

Guillermo del Toro’s trademark film is easily Pan’s Labyrinth . While it wasn’t del Toro’s first movie, it was the first to earn him international acclaim. In the film, a young girl escapes her domineering stepfather by entering into a fairytale world…but not everything about the realm is good. She encounters both light and dark, good and bad, and friends and enemies. The movie was lauded for its gorgeous visuals and raw, emotional story. At the 79th Oscars, Pan’s Labyrinth received six nominations and won three awards, including for Best Cinematography.

But long before Pan’s Labyrinth, one of del Toro’s earliest hits was the sci-fi horror film Mimic . The movie takes place in New York City, where a deadly disease spread by cockroaches is killing hundreds of children. To stop the spread, scientists bioengineer a new bug that secretes a toxin that kills off the cockroaches. But some years later, the new bugs have continued to evolve and are now hunting humans. Though a moderate success in theaters, Mimic became a huge hit in the rental market and is now a cult classic among horror fans.

More recently, the film that most fans know del Toro for is The Shape of Water . At the 90th Oscars, the movie was nominated for a whopping 13 awards and won two major categories: Best Director for del Toro and Best Picture. The film centers around a lonely employee of a secret government facility during the Cold War. One day she discovers that the compound is hiding a dark secret… a mysterious sea creature that’s being kept trapped in a tank. Heavily inspired by Creature from the Black Lagoon, the movie took horror elements and blended them with a love story.

del Toro also used his love of monsters to create another hit movie: Pacific Rim . Heavily inspired by Godzilla and other Japanese monster movies, the film sees humanity fight off towering monsters known as kaijus using giant mechs called jaegers. Stylistically, it’s pretty different from most of del Toro’s films, but it very much plays into the filmmaker’s love of classic monster movies. For fans of the MonsterVerse , Pacific Rim is a must-watch.

Where To Watch Every DC Animated Movie in Order

Where To Watch Every DC Animated Movie in Order

Most viewers are familiar with the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). However, if one wants to dive even deeper into the world of DC Comics, consider exploring the enormous collection of DC animated movies. Animated film adaptations of DC Comics have been produced since 1993, with multiple cinematic universes and continuities being developed over the years. Delving into the vast collection may be daunting to newcomers, but this guide will break down where to watch every DC animated movie in order.

The oldest shared universe is the DC Animated Universe (DCAU), which kicked off in 1992 with the TV show Batman: The Animated Series . The series soon inspired the theatrical film Batman: Mask of Phantasm in 1993, with Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their roles as Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. Batman ) and The Joker, respectively. Ultimately, the DCAU continuity would consist of eight films, including the critically acclaimed Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker .

While the DCAU was the first continuity, another major universe that has sprung up is the DC Animated Movie Universe (DCAMU). It is one of the largest continuities, consisting of 17 movies, beginning with Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox . The film is a unique crossover film that sees the return of voice actors like Conroy’s Batman and Nathan Fillion’s Green Lantern while introducing some new voice actors, including Michael B. Jordan as Victor Stone.

All 17 movies in the DCAMU are loosely based on the New 52 storylines from the comics, which explore the rebooted DC timeline following Flashpoint. It heavily focuses on the Justice League, Batman, and Batman’s son, Damian. Some of its most well-received films include  Batman vs. Robin , Batman: Bad Blood , The Death of Superman , and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War .

Another large universe is Origins, a group of movies that aren’t necessarily interconnected but are lumped together because, as the title suggests, they focus on DC heroes’ origin stories. Origins comprises 14 movies, including Batman: Year One and Wonder Woman (2009). Then, there are many standalone films that don’t belong to any specific universe but are based on DC Comics. These movies can be pretty fun, such as Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Batman vs. Dracula , since they’re not confined to any one continuity. Like Origins, these largely non-related standalone films are grouped into their own universe: Animated Elseworlds.

There are also two smaller universes known as the Tomorrowverse and Arkhamverse. Tomorrowverse is the successor to the DCAMU, while the Arhamverse consists of one movie and the Batman: Arkham video game series.

How to watch the DC Animated Movies in Order

You can either watch DC animated movies by universe or by release date. Given the multiple continuities, watching by universe is the closest one can get to chronological order. Meanwhile, there’s no set order to watch the universes in. However, it’s largely agreed upon Origins is the best to start with since it introduces so many DC heroes. Afterward, we recommend going with the more recent DCAMU before moving on to the three smaller universes and concluding with the standalone movies in Elseworlds.

Where To Watch the Men in Black Movies in Order

Where To Watch the Men in Black Movies in Order

Men in Black is over 25 years old yet still remains a sci-fi cult classic. The ‘90s movie kicked off a film series as well as a contemporary spinoff. For those interested in the memorable franchise, which still has the potential to expand, this guide will demonstrate where and how to stream the Men in Black franchise in order.

The franchise began as a comic book series from Aircel Comics, which is now owned by Marvel Comics . The comics were inspired by the Men in Black (MIB) conspiracy theory, which posits that secret government agents use tactics like memory-wiping to prevent knowledge of UFOs or other extraterrestrial occurrences from reaching the public. In 1997, director Barry Sonnenfeld and writer Ed Solomon put a comedic spin on the MIB theory.

Men in Black sees Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones take on the roles of Agent J and Agent K, respectively, as they navigate the extraterrestrial-investigating titular organization and form a close bond while saving the world. The movie was a major critical and commercial hit, with its witty script, palpable chemistry between Smith and Lee, and stunning blend of practical effects and CG elements.

By 2002, Men in Black II arrived on the big screen, with Smith and Jones reprising their iconic roles. Rosario Dawson , Johnny Knoxville, Rip Torn, and Michael Jackson also appeared in the film. Once again, it was a significant box office hit, though it suffered from mixed critical reviews for veering too close to the original story.

Fortunately, Men in Black 3 got the series back on track by introducing a time-traveling element. Agent J travels back in time to save Agent K’s life. In the process, he meets the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) from the 1960s. Although it was a well-made, refreshing, and humorous sci-fi movie, it didn’t quite eclipse the original. Still, the moderate critical and box office success should’ve been enough to move forward with Men in Black 4.

Instead, the franchise was rebooted in 2019 with the spinoff Men in Black: International . The film did not feature Smith or Jones; instead, it introduced two new agents, Agent H ( Chris Hemsworth ) and Agent M (Tessa Thompson), as they investigated a mole in the agency. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the same without Smith and Jones, with many feeling the spinoff and reboot weren’t necessary, resulting in mostly negative reviews.

So far, no news has arisen of further movies in the franchise, although its success and enduring legacy mean the door is never wholly closed on Men in Black 4.

For those interested in diving into the memorable sci-fi series, here’s how to watch the Men in Black franchise in release date order, including the animated series (although it's not canon to the movies).

The Best Luca Guadagnino Movies to Watch After Challengers (And Where to Stream Them)

The Best Luca Guadagnino Movies to Watch After Challengers (And Where to Stream Them)

Challengers has become one of the hottest movies of the spring thanks to a great performance from Zendaya and the bubbling queer sexual tension that director Luca Guadagnino is so famous for. If you loved the pulpy, exciting melodrama of Challengers , check out our guide below to find out where you can watch more of Guadagnino’s best movies and TV shows.

Luca Guadagnino began his career in Italy and has directed everything from commercials to music videos, documentaries, short films, and feature-length movies. His first major hit around the globe was 2009’s I Am Love . An official selection at the Sundance, Berlin, Venice, and Toronto film festivals, the movie centers around a woman (Tilda Swinton) who begins a new life in Italy and marries into a wealthy family. But soon, she begins having an affair with one of her son’s friends. Filled with sexual tension, lies, and lust, the movie is salacious and captivating.

Arguably the most famous Guadagnino film is Call Me By Your Name . In the film, a 24-year-old (Armie Hammer) arrives in Italy to help a professor with a project during the early ‘80s. Soon, he begins to fall in love with the professor’s 17-year-old son ( Timothée Chalamet ). The film received praise for its sexual tension and emotional exploration of what life was like for closeted men who fall in love. Call Me By Your Name received ample amounts of praise and was even nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. Chalamet would team up with the director again a few years later for Bones and All .

Guadagnino also directed the 2018 remake of Suspiria , a film about a reclusive German dance school that’s actually run by a coven of bloodthirsty witches. Despite being a horror movie, Suspiria was praised for its cinematography and gorgeous visuals. It also had an all-star cast that included Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, and Dakota Johnson .

9 Best Tennis Movies to Watch After Challengers (and Where to Stream Them)

9 Best Tennis Movies to Watch After Challengers (and Where to Stream Them)

Maybe it’s because it stars Zendaya , or perhaps it’s the now-infamous ménage à trois scene, but Challengers has stolen the spotlight as one of the buzziest movies of the spring. If you liked it, check out our guide below to discover more great tennis movies you can watch right now. From a biopic starring Emma Stone to a Kirsten Dunst rom-com, and more.

What are some of the best tennis movies?

If you want to watch a great tennis movie, one of the most notable is 2017’s  Battle of the Sexes . The film tells the true story of when Billie Jean King played a match against tennis legend Bobby Riggs. King ended up beating Riggs, which became a monumental event in the tennis world, proving that women could hold their own against the men and should be taken seriously in the sport. Emma Stone played King and Steve Carrell portrayed Riggs. In 2001, a made-for-TV movie called When Billie Beat Bobby covered the same event, this time with Holly Hunter portraying King. The movie was well-received and Hunter even earned an Emmy nomination for her role.

Another high-profile tennis biopic is 2021’s King Richard , which starred Will Smith as Richard Williams, the father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena. The movie follows the Williams sisters as they grow up under the watchful eye of their dad who is determined to turn them into tennis pros, no matter how hard it might be. The film was nominated for six Oscars, with Smith winning for Best Actor. However, that same night Smith had the infamous “Oscars slap” incident and was promptly banned from the Academy Awards for a decade.

For a more romanticized tennis film, check out 2004’s Wimbledon . The movie stars Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany as two tennis players at Wimbledon. Bettany is a fading star, while Dunst is a rising tennis competitor. The two meet, sparks fly, drama is had, and the duo must navigate how to win their matches despite all the distractions of their relationship. The movie was loaded with other stars too, like Sam Neill and Jon Favreau.

Another movie set in Wimbledon is 7 Days in Hell . The film is based on the unbelievably true story of the longest match in tennis history. Played in 2010 between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, a series of constant ties forced the game to be played for more than 11 hours over three days. The movie starred Andy Samberg and Kit Harington as two fictitious tennis players (who are based on Isner and Mahut) who get locked into a neverending tennis match.

The 10 Best Jason Momoa Films, Ranked (And Where To Watch Them)

The 10 Best Jason Momoa Films, Ranked (And Where To Watch Them)

Jason Momoa has quickly become one of the most recognizable actors in Hollywood, boasting roles in numerous high-profile franchises, including Dune , the DCEU , Game of Thrones , and Fast & Furious. He will also star in the Minecraft movie next year alongside Jack Black . For viewers who wish to acquaint themselves with Momoa’s work before his next projects arrive, this guide will rank his ten best movies and detail where to watch them.

Momoa’s first major film role was as the titular character in Conan the Barbarian (2011), a reimagining of the film of the same name starring Arnold Schwarzenegger . While Momoa’s acting was praised, the movie itself was a critical and commercial failure. Fortunately, Conan the Barbarian didn’t derail his career.

He bounced back with the underrated Bullet to the Head in 2012, where he proved his skill as an action star alongside Sylvester Stallone . However, it wasn’t until 2018 that he had his breakthrough with Aquaman .

Aquaman became the DCEU’s highest-grossing film to date, surpassing $1 billion at the box office. Momoa received high praise for embodying the half-human, half-Atlantean superhero Arthur Curry. He reprised his role as Curry in Zack Snyder’s Justice League , as well as Aquaman’s sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom , which failed to match the success of its predecessor.

Momoa also starred in Braven in 2018, elevating the film beyond a typical action-thriller with his emotional and fierce performance as a man desperate to save his family.

By 2021, Momoa had joined another major franchise when he appeared in Denis Villeneuve ’s critically acclaimed Dune . He held his own alongside A-list actors like Timothée Chalamet and Oscar Isaac while portraying Duncan Idaho, one of Paul Atreides’ most beloved mentors.

The following year, he debuted in the Fast & Furious series as Dante Reyes in Fast X . Despite the film receiving mixed reviews, Momoa’s unhinged villain role received unanimous praise, marking one of his career-best performances.

Ranking his movies is a bit difficult as some of his best performances were in movies that weren’t very well-received by critics. Hence, this list considers both the quality and significance of his role in each film, as well as the film's overall quality.

Here are Jason Momoa’s ten best performances, ranked from the best, and where to stream them online.

Where To Watch Every Marvel TV Show in Order

Where To Watch Every Marvel TV Show in Order

Marvel has recently been expanding its small screen presence through several Disney+ original series, which are canon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe . More Marvel TV series are on the way, including some, like Daredevil: Born Again , that tie into Marvel’s pre-Disney+ era. For those looking to catch up on every Marvel-based TV show, this guide will demonstrate where and how to watch all the series in order.

The Marvel shows canon to the MCU began with the Disney+ series WandaVision in 2021. However, there were several important Marvel series before 2021 — they just weren’t produced by Marvel Studios. Marvel’s live-action TV presence started with ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2013, which ran for seven seasons and achieved high critical acclaim. Although not considered canon to the MCU, it does center on Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who first appeared in Iron Man . MCU star Samuel L. Jackson also appears as Nick Fury in the series.

The success of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. led ABC to greenlight Agent Carter , another non-canon spinoff focused on the MCU character Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Despite receiving stellar reviews, Agent Carter was canceled after two seasons. Meanwhile, the third ABC series, Inhumans , also faced speedy cancellation after being critically panned.

Netflix also invested in several Marvel series from 2015 to 2019. The streamer created what is known as the Defenders saga, consisting of six interconnected series. Of the series, the most critically acclaimed were Daredevil and Jessica Jones . Charlie Cox’s performance as Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s performance as Kingpin were so beloved that Marvel decided to integrate the characters into the MCU, despite the Defenders series technically not being canon. Cox and D’Onofrio will soon star in the Daredevil reboot Daredevil: Born Again. Hulu, FX, Fox, and Freeform have also briefly dabbled in Marvel series, with shows like Runaways and Cloak & Dagger .

By 2021, the MCU decided to move to the small screen with the Emmy-winning WandaVision, which saw Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their roles as the Scarlet Witch and Vision, respectively. In total, the MCU has released ten original Disney+ series. Of those series, What If…? and the Tom Hiddleston -led Loki were popular enough to warrant season 2 renewals. Future series include Agatha , Ironheart , and Eyes of Wakanda.

It’s impossible to watch every Marvel series in chronological order, given that not all of them occur in the same universe. Hence, the best way to watch is in the order of release date. See below for where to watch every live-action or MCU canon Marvel TV show (and TV special) in release date order.

Where To Watch Every Movie in the After Series in Order

Where To Watch Every Movie in the After Series in Order

The After film series is set to expand soon, with a prequel and fifth sequel reportedly in development. Based on the book series of the same name by Anna Todd, the movies have garnered attention for dramatically capturing a complicated modern college romance. For those interested in catching up on the series before the prequel, Before, releases, this guide will demonstrate where and how to watch every After movie in order.

After  premiered in 2019 and featured Josephine Langford in the lead role of Tessa Young. Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Ralph Fiennes's nephew, starred opposite Langford as Hardin Scott. Fiennes Tiffin had previously portrayed young Tom Riddle in the Harry Potter film series . After follows Tessa, an innocent freshman college student who finds her life upended by Hardin, the manipulative and selfish “bad boy” she finds herself inexplicably falling for.

The movie received mixed reviews, as it drew criticism for being a rather generic romance but was praised for its drama and beautiful cinematography. It was also a hit at the box office, earning nearly $70 million worldwide on a budget of just $14 million.

Hence, a sequel, After We Collided , soon arrived. Langford and Fiennes Tiffin reprise their roles as the young lovers who re-enter a tumultuous relationship after regretting their breakup. It received slightly more negative reviews than the first. Still, it was a comparable commercial success to the original, resulting in three more sequels: After We Fell , After Ever Happy , and After Everything .

However, critical and commercial reception continued to fall, with After We Fell and After Ever Happy receiving a score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and box office earnings dropping to around $20 million. Still, After Everything was greenlit. It was the first movie to boast an original story outside of Todd’s books and was advertised as the final film in the series. Although it received a limited theatrical release, it made $10 million at the box office and received relatively favorable audience reviews.

Soon, After Everything director Castille Landon confirmed the movie wasn’t the last chapter in the series, as a prequel was in development. Additionally, another untitled sequel is in development, inspired by the epilogue of the After Ever Happy book, which will focus on Hardin’s and Tessa’s children. It is believed the prequel and sequel will be the first movies without Langford or Fiennes Tiffin.

For those interested in catching up with the series before the prequel and sequel, here is where to watch the After movies in release date order.

Where To Watch Every Pixar Animation Studios Movie in Order

Where To Watch Every Pixar Animation Studios Movie in Order

Pixar Animation Studios is one of the most influential and successful animation studios of all time, having made unparalleled contributions to the film industry in computer animation. The studio has produced 27 feature films and is gearing up to expand its film slate with Inside Out 2 , which is set to release on June 14, and is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2024 . Read on to discover where to stream every Pixar Animation Studios film.

Pixar began as a part of Lucasfilm’s Computer Division. Under Lucasfilm, it created the first wholly computer-animated sequence in a feature film by designing a scene where a planet transforms in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan . By 1986, Steve Jobs bought the Computer Division and formed it into the independent company Pixar, which quickly began collaborating with Disney.

Out of Pixar and Disney’s collaboration, the very first computer-animated feature film, Toy Story , was born. The computer-animated movie was released in 1995 and explored a world where toys like Woody ( Tom Hanks ) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) come to life. It was like nothing viewers had ever seen before and quickly became the most important film of its kind, setting a precedent for further computer-animated features.

Since then, Pixar has stayed on top of the computer animation field, with every film boasting cutting-edge technology, innovation, and creativity. Nearly every Pixar film has achieved high critical acclaim, but a few stand out especially. Finding Nemo took home the studio's first Best Animated Feature win at the Oscars, while The Incredibles was the first wholly animated film to earn the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation.

Cars became a profitable trilogy and introduced Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), one of the most iconic and recognizable Pixar characters. Meanwhile, the emotional and adventurous Up became the first Pixar film and second animated film in history to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. Toy Story 3 soon became the third animated film to earn a Best Picture nomination and broke $1 billion at the box office.

Its movies have only become more sophisticated, with films like Inside Out , Coco , Soul , and Turning Red seeking to celebrate girlhood and other cultures and exploring concepts like grief and mortality. With Inside Out 2 poised to explore emotions in puberty and raise awareness for struggles with anxiety in adolescence, the studio could be adding another critically acclaimed film to its slate.

For those looking to catch up on Pixar’s movies before Inside Out 2, here is how to watch them in release date order from oldest to newest.

Where to Watch the Entire Sonic Cinematic Universe in Order

Where to Watch the Entire Sonic Cinematic Universe in Order

Sonic is the ultimate hero and the undefeated underdog. He single-handedly saved SEGA in the '90s, and when the first trailer for his live-action 2020 film debuted, it became the center of jokes and memes thanks to Sonic’s terrifyingly real animation. But after the movie received tons of praise from audiences and grossed more than $319 million at the box office, one thing became clear: Sonic is no joke. Check out our guide to find out where you can watch every movie and show in the Sonic Cinematic Universe in order. We'll also show you if there are options to watch Sonic movies legally for free in the United States.

What is the Sonic Cinematic Universe?

A lot of fans are probably wondering what exactly the “Sonic cinematic universe” is. It’s all the films, shows, and shorts that take place in the new live-action era of Sonic. Believe it or not, Sonic has actually had quite a few shows throughout his three decades – like  Sonic the Hedgehog (1993), Sonic Underground (1999), and Sonic X (2003). So it’s important to differentiate that the new franchise doesn’t include those older entries. 

So, where does the Sonic Cinematic Universe start? That would be with 2020’s Sonic the Hedgehog , where Sonic uses a golden ring to transport himself to Earth. But once Dr. Robotnik discovers his location, Sonic is forced to escape with the help of his new friend (played excellently by James Marsden).

Thanks to the movie’s success, it was followed by  Sonic the Hedgehog 2 in 2022. This time around, Dr. Robotnik is back for revenge and audiences get to see more iconic Sonic characters brought to life like Knuckles and Tails. The mid-credits scene also introduces the villainous Shadow, who is going to play a large role in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 later in 2024…and be voiced by none other than Keanu Reeves.

There’s also the spin-off series Knuckles , which premiered in April 2024. The show centers around Knuckles, who helps the dimwitted town sheriff by teaching him the ways of the echidna warriors. The show features a fantastic cast that includes Hollywood veterans like Christopher Lloyd and Stockard Channing, as well as both Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz reprising their roles from the film series. In the franchise’s timeline, Knuckles fills the gap between Sonic 2 and Sonic 3.

There’s also a non-canonical short film Sonic Drone Home which is technically part of the new Sonic Cinematic Universe as well. The short was released as part of the special features on the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Blu-Ray and follows Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails as they encounter a (somewhat evil) scrapyard robot who loves poetry. Luckily, the short has been uploaded to YouTube for anyone who wants to watch it.

Where to Watch the Entire Hotel Transylvania Series In Order

Where to Watch the Entire Hotel Transylvania Series In Order

In 2012, Hotel Transylvania became an unexpected hit film. Released at the end of September (one of the worst months for cinemas), the movie ended up grossing over $358 million globally. Since then, three more films and a TV series have been released in the franchise. Check out our guide below to find out where to watch the entire Hotel Transylvania franchise in order.

The original Hotel Transylvania film starred a huge array of Saturday Night Live alums, like Adam Sandler , Andy Samberg, and Molly Shannon, along with other big names like Selena Gomez. The movie centers around a monsters-only hotel in Transylvania run by the vampire (and overprotective single-father), Count Dracula. But everything changes when Johnny, a human, checks into the hotel, unaware of who inhabits it. Things go even more awry when he starts to fall in love with Dracula’s daughter.

Then, in 2015 the sequel Hotel Transylvania 2 began by showing that Johnny and Dracula’s daughter Mavis got married and had a baby. But, questions arise about whether the baby will be a vampire or a human. The entire original cast returned for the sequel, and more comedic actors joined in on the fun too, like Mel Brooks, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally. The movie became an even bigger hit than the original, grossing more than $474 million globally.

From 2017-2020, there was also Hotel Transylvania: The Series . The show is actually a prequel to the first movie and follows a younger Mavis who has adventures throughout the hotel with her friends. The animated series had a different voice cast from the films and ran for 52 episodes. For hardcore fans of the franchise it’s a fun addition to watch, but seeing the show isn’t necessary to enjoy the films.

In Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation , the gang desperately needs a vacation, so they book a cruise. Little do they know, the infamous vampire hunter Van Helsing is onboard along with his great-granddaughter Ericka. But, despite the Van Helsings' desire to kill Dracula… Ericka finds herself falling in love. Once again, the entire main cast reprised their roles, this time joined by newcomers like Chrissy Teigen and Kathryn Hahn.

The fourth film, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania , was released as an Amazon Prime exclusive in 2022. True to the movie’s title, this time around all the humans become monsters and vice versa. The only way for Johnny and Dracula to turn back to their old selves is to finally love each other and see each other as family.

Currently, there’s no news about a potential fifth film (though there are a bunch of fake fan-made trailers on YouTube). Hopefully fans will get a fifth installment, but until then, check out our guide below to find out where you can stream all four Hotel Transylvania movies and the prequel series.

How to Watch The Matrix Movies in Order (and Where to Watch Them)

How to Watch The Matrix Movies in Order (and Where to Watch Them)

In this guide, we’ll show you how to watch The Matrix franchise in order and show you where you can watch them on popular streaming services in the United States. We’ll also let you know if there are options to stream The Matrix movies legally for free.

In 1999, The Matrix became an overnight sensation when the directorial duo Lana and Lilly Wachowski unveiled their kung fu science fiction classic to the world. Starring Keanu Reeves as Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity and Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus, this groundbreaking movie grossed $460 million worldwide at the box office on a $63 million budget. This marked the beginning of an ongoing blockbuster franchise that is still beloved by fans today.

The Matrix franchise now includes a trilogy ( The Matrix , The Matrix Reloaded , The Matrix Revolutions ), an anthology of anime short films ( The Animatrix ) and a soft meta-reboot ( The Matrix Resurrections ). There are also tentative plans for an upcoming fifth installment by Warner Bros. Whether you’re watching The Matrix for the first time or rewatching the classic sci-fi franchise, this guide shows you where to watch them all online and the different viewing orders (release vs chronological).

How to watch The Matrix movies in order

If you only want to watch The Matrix feature-length movies, you can watch them chronologically in exactly the same way they were released.

The Matrix (1999)

The Matrix Reloaded (2003)

The Matrix Revolutions (2003)

The Matrix: Resurrections (2021)

This is a great viewing order if you are new to the franchise and want to enjoy the main storyline without getting overwhelmed by the franchise’s expanded universe of short films and canonical video games. However, the Wachowskis and Warner Bros. have always been ambitious when expanding The Matrix as a multimedia franchise. They have released several canonical stories in video games (Enter the Matrix, The Matrix Online and Path of Neo) and The Animatrix. In particular, The Animatrix offers some of the franchise’s best storylines that you won’t want to miss. So, if you’re ready to ‘take the red pill’ and go deeper, here’s how to watch the franchise in its entirety.

How to watch entire The Matrix franchise in chronological order

While watching the Matrix movies in order isn’t too complicated, this becomes more difficult if you want to watch the entire story unfold in every movie, short film and video game. Technically, The Matrix video games Enter the Matrix, The Path of Neo and The Matrix Online are all canonical, so we’ve included these in our complete Matrix timeline. Similarly, the short films included in The Animatrix anthology take place at various times throughout the story.

The Animatrix: The Second Renaissance, Part I and II

The Animatrix: A Detective Story

The Animatrix: Kid's Story

The Animatrix: Final Flight of the Osiris

Enter the Matrix – Video game

The Matrix Reloaded

The Matrix Revolutions

The Matrix: Path of Neo – Video game

The Matrix Online: The Matrix Online – Video game

The Animatrix: Beyond

The Matrix: Resurrections

The Animatrix: World Record – Exact timeframe unknown

The Animatrix: Matriculated – Exact timeframe unknown

The Animatrix: Program – Exact timeframe unknown

The Animatrix: The Second Renaissance, Part I and II takes place during the human/machine war in the mid-21st century. According to Morpheus’ estimations, everything from The Animatrix: A Detective Story until The Animatrix: Beyond then takes place circa 2199. The Matrix: Resurrections picks up the story 18 years later. Three Animatrix shorts have no discernable timeframe, so the best option is to watch those last.

The Matrix documentaries

The Matrix Revisited (2001)

Another important release for Matrix completists is The Matrix Revisited. This 2001 documentary shows the making of the first movie in 1999, revealing how many of the stunts were performed and explaining the movie’s revolutionary CGI techniques.

Where To Watch Every Fifty Shades of Grey Movie in Order

Where To Watch Every Fifty Shades of Grey Movie in Order

Shortly after becoming one of the fastest-selling adult paperbacks of all time, E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey earned a film adaptation . The film was a major commercial success, leading to the whole book series being adapted into a movie trilogy. This guide will demonstrate where and how viewers can watch and stream the entire Fifty Shades of Grey series in order.

The first movie in the series, Fifty Shades of Grey , premiered in 2015, starring Dakota Johnson in the lead role of Anastasia “Ana” Steele and Jamie Dornan in the role of Christian Grey. It is often credited with kickstarting both Johnson and Dornan’s careers. Like the book, the film follows Ana’s experiences as she finds herself falling for the billionaire businessman Christian, though his interest in BDSM complicates their relationship.

Similar to the books, Fifty Shades of Grey received mixed-to-negative reviews but was a major commercial hit, grossing $381 million on a budget of $55 million. Although many disagree on the movie’s quality and how it chooses to frame BDSM, it has garnered widespread attention for tackling topics considered “taboo” and highlighting women’s sexuality.

Hence, it wasn’t long before the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker , was greenlit, with Johnson and Dornan returning. Luke Grimes and Rita Ora also returned to reprise their roles as Mia and Elliott Grey, respectively. Anticipation for this movie was relatively high, especially since James’ husband, Niall Leonard, signed on to write the script. The sequel sees the story heat up as Christian’s past comes back to haunt him while he tries to rekindle his relationship with Ana. Although Fifty Shades Darker received even poorer reviews than the original, earning just an 11% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it matched the original’s commercial success.

In 2018, the final movie in the series, Fifty Shades Freed , premiered. Johnson, Dornan, Grimes, and Ora returned while Leonard wrote the script again. The plot allows viewers to see the culmination of Christian and Ana’s relationship. Like its predecessor, the final film was also critically panned but proved a box office success. Despite its mixed reception, the series’ subject matter ensures the conversation and interest around it remains ongoing.

For viewers wishing to delve into the erotica series, here is where to watch it in order. There is only one viewing order, as the chronological and release date orders are the same.

Where to Watch Mad Max Movies in Order – A Streaming Guide

Where to Watch Mad Max Movies in Order – A Streaming Guide

Check out our guide to watching all the Mad Max movies online including 1979's original film, Tom Hardy in Fury Road and the Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga prequel in 2024 starring Anya Taylor-Joy . Here you can find out how to watch every Mad Max movie in order (chronological vs release) and where to watch them all on streaming services in the United States. This includes the latest offers from services such as Netflix, Prime Video and Disney+. We'll also let you know if you can watch any of the Mad Max movies online for free.

How to watch Mad Max movies in release order

The first Mad Max film premiered in 1979 and was set in a near-future dystopian Australia where society has collapsed due to oil shortages and widespread ecocide. Max Rockatansky (Mel Gibson) works for the only remaining law enforcement agency in the country, the Main Force Patrol, and he’s tasked with roaming the wasteland to hopefully bring as much justice as he can.

The sequel, Mad Max 2 , released two years later in 1981, sees Max discover a small community living in a village built around a working oil rig. After noticing the village is constantly attacked, he tries to strike a deal: protect them in exchange for fuel.

The third film, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome , has become arguably the most iconic. Released in 1985, Beyond Thunderdome stars Tina Turner as Aunty Entity, the leader of an outpost that gets its power from an underground refinery. Max is enlisted to take down the ruler of the underworld, who is plotting to overthrow Aunty Entity.

Mad Max fans had to wait 30 years until the next release in 2015, when  Mad Max: Fury Road premiered to critical acclaim. This time around, Max is played by Tom Hardy. Fury Road follows Max as he joins forces with Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), who is trying to liberate a group of “wives” who have been imprisoned by Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). Mad Max director George Miller has never been clear on whether Fury Road is a sequel to Thunderdome or a reboot.

The next movie to watch in release order is Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga , the prequel to Fury Road. It portrays a young Imperator Furiosa, this time played by Anya Taylor-Joy. She is taken from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a dangerous biker horde.

There’s also another Mad Max sequel in the works, titled Mad Max: The Wasteland. The film is still in the early stages of development, but it appears to be a sequel to Fury Road and will see Hardy reprise his role.

How to watch Mad Max movies in chronological order

Because Mad Max is treated like a mythological character in George Miller's post-apocalyptic franchise, the exact order of the movies isn't as clear (or important) as other franchises. However, this is our suggested order if you want to follow Mad Max's adventures through the Wasteland.

  • Mad Max (1979)
  • Max Mad 2: The Road Warrior (1981)
  • Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
  • Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (2024)
  • Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Where can I watch Mad Max movies online?

Where To Watch Every Disney Live-Action Remake in Order

Where To Watch Every Disney Live-Action Remake in Order

Recently, Walt Disney Studios has been ramping up its remake strategy. The studio is capitalizing on the enduring legacies of its biggest animated classics, such as Beauty and the Beauty , Peter Pan , and Pinocchio , by remaking them in live-action. These remakes have been extremely successful at the box office, appealing to older audiences through nostalgia while giving younger audiences a chance to experience the magic of seeing Disney's iconic stories on the big screen for the first time. In this guide, you can find out how to watch every live action Disney remake on streaming services in the United States.

Disney began dabbling in remakes in the 1990s with Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book , 101 Dalmatians , The Jungle Book: Mowgli’s Story , and 102 Dalmatians . However, the studio only distributed (but did not produce) Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, while Mowgli's Story was a direct-to-video release. Hence, the studio’s first big live-action adaptation success was  One Hundred and One Dalmatians , which grossed $320.7 at the box office on a $67 million budget.

The studio waited until 2010 to release another remake, starting with Tim Burton's  Alice in Wonderland . Technology advancements meant the studio could truly capture the full scale of the classics. Disney then picked up the frequency with which it released live action remakes.

Beauty and the Beast (2017) is one of the biggest standout remakes. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens bring Belle and Beast to life in an enchanting, magical movie with lavish details and beautifully crafted songs. It also became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, solidifying the appeal of live action Disney remakes.

The studio also released  The Jungle Book and The Lion King . While these remakes were CGI-heavy, the special effects were so lifelike that it’s difficult to label them as “animated,” especially since The Jungle Book had a prominent human component in actor Neel Sethi, who brought Mowgli to life. 

Disney has gotten creative with its remakes in other ways, too, such as with Christopher Robin and Cruella , which are adaptations of Winnie the Pooh and One Hundred and One Dalmations, respectively. Instead of being straightforward adaptations, they were live-action reimaginings that probed the iconic villain Cruella’s ( Emma Stone ) origins and the life of an adult Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor).

Following the recent success of the Halle Bailey-led The Little Mermaid , Disney is developing more live action remakes of their own classics, with  Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Moana on the horizon.

Where can I watch live action Disney remakes online?

Here are all of Disney’s live-action adaptations in release date order, from oldest to newest. In this guide, we've included the latest streaming information so you can easily find where to watch every live action Disney remake. You can also use JustWatch to find out which movies are available to stream legally for free.

How to Watch Pitch Perfect Movies in Order – A Streaming Guide

How to Watch Pitch Perfect Movies in Order – A Streaming Guide

Aca-scuse me? If you’re looking to watch the three Pitch Perfect movies and their spin-off series Bumper in Berlin, check out our guide below to find out where you can stream them all. 

Pitch Perfect premiered in 2012 and was somewhat of a sleeper hit. The film centered around a struggling college acapella group, the Barden Bellas, who hilariously struggle to return their group to its former glory. It starred Anna Kendrick in what many consider her career-defining role, as well as Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and Rebel Wilson in her breakout role. Pitch Perfect initially had a limited release, followed by a wide release the following week.

Thanks to social media and word of mouth, the movie gained tons of publicity. While it never topped the box office, it continued to perform well week after week, staying in theaters well into February of the following year. In total, the movie made $115 million on a budget of just $17 million.

The success of the first movie led to a sequel, Pitch Perfect 2 , which premiered in 2015. Now, the Barden Bellas are among the top acapella groups in the world…but after a scandal, the Bellas need to save their reputation and re-earn their glory. The film was an even bigger success than the original, grossing more than $287 million.

A third film, Pitch Perfect 3 , came out in 2017. The Bellas are now graduated and struggling with the monotony of their jobs. But they hatch a plan to reunite and perform at a USO tour overseas. The movie was the biggest and craziest yet, involving global travel and even kidnapping. However, Pitch Perfect 3 received worse reviews than the first two films and remains the final Pitch Perfect movie to date.

But in 2022, the franchise received a spin-off series with Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin . The show follows Bumper, who has been a struggling musician since graduation. But after one of his songs becomes a hit in Germany, he heads to Berlin to hopefully jumpstart his career. The show had a fantastic cast including Adam DeVine who reprised his role as Bumper, along with Sarah Hyland and Jameela Jamil. After initially being renewed for a second season, the 2023 writers’ and actors’ strike ended up causing the show’s cancellation.

Hopefully more Pitch Perfect films are on the way, but until then, find out where to watch all three Pitch Perfect movies and Bumper in Berlin with our guide below.

How to watch the LEGO Movie franchise in order

How to watch the LEGO Movie franchise in order

The LEGO brand is huge, spanning movies, TV series, animated specials, video games, and of course, the iconic block toys. One of the brand’s biggest successes has been The LEGO Movie franchise. While LEGO has produced tons of movies and series, like the various LEGO Star Wars specials on Disney+, The LEGO Movie franchise is its own universe separate from the other LEGO franchises. Check out our guide below to find out how to watch every entry in The LEGO Movie series in order.

The series began in 2014 with The LEGO Movie . Starring Chris Pratt , Elizabeth Banks, and Morgan Freeman, the movie centers around a LEGO city under attack and the heroes who must save it. In the finale, however, it turns out that it was all taking place inside a giant LEGO set-up in a family’s basement. The movie had some surprisingly great humor and became a hit, earning more than $468 million at the box office.

Then, in 2017, the film received two spin-off sequels. First up was The LEGO Batman Movie . Will Arnett reprised his role as Batman and was joined by other stars like Michael Cera as Robin, Zach Galifianakis as the Joker, and Rosario Dawson as Batgirl. In classic DC fashion, Batman must stop Joker’s evil plans…but instead of being gritty like modern Batman movies, the film was loaded with lots of LEGO humor. 

Just seven months later, another spin-off hit theaters. The LEGO Ninjago Movie centered around the famous ninja-inspired LEGO brand of the same name. The brand already had the long-running animated TV show Ninjago , which began airing in 2011, but the film is actually considered part of The LEGO Movie universe instead. The plot follows the son of an evil mastermind who does everything in his power to stop his dad from taking over the world. 

Also in 2017, the series Unikitty! premiered and followed the fan-favorite character Princess Unikitty from the first film. As an episodical, the show followed the various misadventures and hijinks of the Princess and her fellow inhabitants of the Unikingdom. The show ran for three seasons, airing over 100 episodes. 

The most recent addition to the franchise is 2019’s The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part . This time around, the team faces their biggest threat yet: space invaders destroying everything in sight. The hilarious part is that the space invaders are actually toys from the LEGO Duplo line, which is the brand’s toy collection made for toddlers.

According to Variety, Universal Studios acquired the rights to produce LEGO content in 2020, so more movies are expected sometime in the future. Until then, check out our guide below to find out where you can watch every entry in The LEGO Movie franchise so far.
