Smith is the tough, no-nonsense human cop, and Edgerton is his Orc partner. Can these two cops from opposite worlds learn to get along? Maybe this new Bright clip will answer that question.

John Boyega Star Wars spoiler

There’s an unspoken rule when TV personalities interview movie stars on live television: it’s bad form for a TV host to drop a spoiler into the middle of a conversation. But that’s exactly what happened when Star Wars: The Last Jedi star John Boyega appeared on This Morning and co-host Holly Willoughby blurted out a pretty significant surprise live on camera and caught the young actor totally off guard. Watch the John Boyega Star Wars spoiler reaction below. (And this should go without saying, but if you haven’t seen the movie yet, don’t keep reading this.)

Star Wars The Last Jedi box office

The Force is definitely strong with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Aside from being a creative success with wildly positive reviews, it’s also well on its way to becoming a box office juggernaut, pulling in $45 million domestically in Thursday night preview screenings. That’s still not quite at the level of 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which reinvigorated the franchise after a decade-long slumber, but analysts are predicting that The Last Jedi could earn as much as $100 million on its opening day alone.

The Commuter trailer

Here’s a nice distraction from current events: a final trailer for The Commuter. Liam Neeson, action star, is back once again with lurid, style-overload director Jaume Collet-Serra for a whole new ridiculous thriller. This final trailer is loaded with some shaggy CGI, a quick shot of Sam Neill with a mustache, and explosions. But the real draw here is Neeson, who continues to age like a fine wine while also punching people in the face. Watch The Commuter trailer below.

kill or be killed movie

Here’s a match made in heaven. Or rather, given the grim subject matter here, a match made in hell.
