Ricki and the Flash trailer

In Ricki and the Flash, Meryl Streep plays a woman whose career as the frontwoman of a rock band seems to be kind of fading (she’s playing clubs, not massive stadiums), but a trip home in order to support her adult child in a for a moment of crisis forces her to confront the many aftereffects of putting her music career before her family. And because this is Meryl Streep (being directed by Jonathan Demme, no less, from a script by Diablo Cody) she makes the process of wringing tears out of audiences look pretty effortless.

Check out the Ricki and the Flash trailer below, and keep an eye out for Meryl’s amazing American flag back tattoo. What’s the story behind that? Read More »

Christoph Waltz directing

Christoph Waltz seemed to come out of nowhere years ago when Quentin Tarantino cast him in the 2009 release Inglorious Basterds, though the actor had actually been working for many years prior to that. Since then, however, Waltz has won two Oscars (for Basterds, and for Django Unchained) and established himself as a major player in both studio and indie films. Now he’s going to direct, and for his first film Waltz is taking on a strange true crime story.  Read More »

Jon Hamm High Wire Act

No, Jon Hamm isn’t planning some network television stunt to air after the series finale of Mad Men on May 17th. Instead, High Wire Act is the name of a new political action thriller that will be led by the star of Million Dollar Arm and Bridesmaids and, yes, Mad Men. And with a script from Tony Gilroy, the writer behind The Bourne Identity franchise, this should be a project to keep an eye on. So what’s the film about? Details on the plot after the jump. Read More »

Human Centipede 3 trailer

Has writer/director Tom Six gone full Sharknado with The Human Centipede 3 [Final Sequence]? This latest Human Centipede 3 trailer shows that this second sequel to the conceptually-disgusting original film is not only self-referential (Tom Six is even in this one) and histrionic, but deliberately goofy and tongue-in-cheek. I guess that’s better than the tongue being lodged somewhere else, as this trailer will show.

Note: This isn’t a red-band trailer but it is a trailer for a Human Centipede movie, so you’ll have to apply your own wisdom with respect to watching at work. Read More »
