3 Film Series to Catch in N.Y.C. This Weekend

This entry was posted in Science Fiction on by .

JEAN-CLAUDE CARRI’RE at the Museum of Modern Art (through June 16). What connects filmmakers like Nagisa Oshima, Luis Bu’uel, Jonathan Glazer and Julian Schnabel? The screenwriter and author Jean-Claude Carri’re. He is perhaps most associated with absurdist conceits (in addition to his enduring collaboration with Bu’uel, he also appeared as an actor in Abbas Kiarostami’s ‘Certified Copy’), but his astonishing range is revealed in this retrospective, which covers more than 50 years. On Friday, Carri’re will introduce Louis Malle’s ‘May Fools,’ Milos Forman’s ‘Taking Off’ (showing with a short that Carri’re directed) and Philip Kaufman’s screen version of ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being.’ On Saturday, he will appear with the director Volker Schl’ndorff at ‘The Tin Drum’ and ‘Circle of Deceit,’ and on Sunday he will present Bu’uel’s ‘The Milky Way.’212-708-9400, moma.org

Star Wars Celebration Chicago: What to expect from this weekend’s convention

This week, countless fans of a galaxy far, far away will descend on Chicago’s McCormick Place for a convention solely devoted to Star Wars — the first Star Wars Celebration we’ve had since 2017.

CNET will be roaming the show floor on Thursday, checking out the creative cosplay and initial product reveals, before the panels and official announcements kick off Friday.

We’d be astounded if Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and director J.J. Abrams don’t bring the long-awaited title reveal, the first trailer and a poster. No other guests have been officially announced, but expect most of the cast to show up and hype the final movie in the Skywalker saga. They’ll probably reveal the first action figure from the movie too.
