uncle drew trailer

It started as a viral bit. Basketball star Kyrie Irving donned some old-age make-up, a fat suit, and a white wig to play “Uncle Drew,” a washed-up basketball player who shows up to a local game and shows up all the young players.

Braven

Jason Momoa stars in Braven, a film with a dumb name and a whole lot of heart. Braven feels like an anomaly – it’s the type of action movie that was more prevalent in the late ’80s and early ’90s; the type of action movie that used to star Jean-Claude Van Damme.
