Nightingale Trailer

The solo show must be both one of the most appealing and among the most frightening prospects for an actor. David Oyelowo gets a chance to totally own the screen in HBO’s Nightingale, in which the actor plays a war veteran whose psyche is falling apart. That’s all I need to know, as Oyelowo is a powerful actor, and I would be happy to see his take on just about any role. Put him in a project like this, where it’s all on his shoulders, and the results might be spectacular.

The first Nightingale trailer only gives us a hint of where the film will go, but it’s enough to get across the sense that it’s going to be an emotional journey. Check it out below. Read More »

Arnold Schwarzenegger in Maggie

If nothing else, Maggie deserves credit for approaching zombies from a whole new angle. While the angst of watching a loved one get infected is a common trope of the genre, it is rarely if ever the main focus of a zombie movie. But as Maggie shows, it’s a premise with great potential. Unfortunately, Maggie also shows there are many ways to sell that potential short.  Read More »

Black Mass trailer

Hollywood doesn’t give us a lot of great gangster movies anymore, so when there’s one on the horizon that looks promising, we all get excited. Is this the next Scarface, White Heat, Goodfellas or Godfather? We don’t know yet, but Black Mass certainly has a shot at success.

Directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) the film stars Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who became an FBI informant to help take down the Italian mob. The film co-stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller, Adam Scott and opens in September.

Seth Rogen

The team from 50/50 is back and X marks the spot. Director Jonathan Levine‘s previous untitled Christmas movie starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie is now officially called X-Mas, which is a title Rogen was toying with while on set a few months back.

Not much is known in the way of specifics about the film, but the title was revealed in an image at CinemaCon that featured the three stars in super ugly Christmas sweaters (or, in Rogen’s case, a Hanukkah sweater) posing for a Christmas card like they’re rappers.

Aloha soundtrack

Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a new Cameron Crowe movie coming out next month. That may sound crazy because buzz around the film has been almost non-existant, but it’s true. The director of Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire and Say Anything is about to release Aloha, a Hawaiian-set military romance starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Bill Murray, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin.

It’s an insane cast in a film with a weird plot that involves satellites and space. Aloha seems difficult to peg. But what better way to preview a Cameron Crowe movie than with its soundtrack? The writer/director recently revealed the songs that make up the Aloha soundtrack, which you can hear below. Check out a new poster, too.  Read More »
