Author Details

Ryan Northrup is a freelancer entertainment writer based out of Hamilton, Ontario. After working briefly in PR, Ryan shifted his focus to the world of movies and TV, his true passion. Torn between wanting to write about movies and wanting to write his own, Ryan attended Vancouver Film School, developing friends and industry contacts.

Industry Focus

Working as a Senior Writer at Screen Rant, Ryan covers a wide variety of movie and TV releases. While he writes about everything from the biggest blockbusters to the latest Netflix shows to smaller indie movies, much of Ryan’s focus at Screen Rant is on major action franchises like John Wick, Mission: Impossible, and Fast & Furious.

Favorite Media

Ryan will turn up at the theater for anything that Christopher Nolan makes and thinks Tenet is underrated (“Don’t try to understand it, feel it.”) He passionately believes that Tom Cruise is the single most reliably entertaining movie star alive and agrees with Spielberg that the man saved Hollywood’s butt. Ryan is also desperately hoping for Hannibal season 4.
