Will Captain Marvel eclipse Wonder Woman?

Marvel Studio’s latest film Captain Marvel rolls back the years and takes us to a simpler time: the 90s. Set to release early next year before the highly anticipated Avengers 4, Captain Marvel focuses on the origin story of its titular character with the aim of easing the character’s transition into the next Avengers offering. The film’s trailer gives us an exciting look into what to expect from the film.

Tamanna: A step in the right direction for Pakistani cinema

There has to be something about a movie where a Pakistani audience sits silently in cinemas, where mobile texting and chatting during a movie is the norm otherwise, and watch two lead characters dominate the story in a single location for 83 minutes. Billed as Pakistan’s first ‘Film Noir’, Tamanna is definitely in a league of its own in the context of Pakistani cinema. Prominent film critic Taran Adarsh raised an important point upon release of the film Barfi!, “You don’t formulate movies (like Barfi!) targeting its box-office potential or its commercial prospects.
