house of cards season 4 trailer

I’ve joked a few times about Netflix‘s approach to marketing the fourth season of House of Cards, which has mostly entailed them nothing at all. There has been some viral marketing and some vague teasers, but otherwise, the the streaming service’s flagship series has been awfully quiet for a pop culture juggernaut that is less than a month away.

And right on cue, the first proper House of Cards season 4 trailer has arrived. Don’t give Netflix too much credit, though – this is still very much a teaser. They know they have a built-in audience for this show no matter what they show off in previews.

the program trailer

A few weeks ago it was announced The Program will premiere on DirecTV this month. The Lance Armstrong biopic was shot almost two and a half years ago, but The Program has taken its time getting to the big screen, for unknown reasons. The former potential awards contender is directed by Stephen Frears (High Fidelity) and, in the starring role as the disgraced cyclist, is Ben Foster.

Below, watch The Program trailer.

Aaron Sorkin‘s tremendous screenplay for Steve Jobs may have been snubbed at the 2016 Academy Awards, but the acclaimed screenwriter and playwright isn’t taking any time to lick his wounds. While Sorkin will not visit the Oscar stage this year, he will be returning to Broadway for a new stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s iconic novel To Kill a Mockingbird that is set to debut in 2017.

The Invitation Drafthouse

I had to include Karyn Kusama‘s The Invitation on my most anticipated movies of 2016 list. Even though I have already seen the film, I had to give it a shout-out. Kusama’s dramatic thriller is an excellent movie, a story that’s bound to grow richer on repeat viewings. With The Invitation opening in theaters next month, Drafthouse Films is kindly letting us debut the poster for the film.

Check out The Invitation poster below.

The Leftovers renewed

Season three will be the last for HBO’s The Leftovers. The drama, based on Tom Perrotta‘s book, recently concluded its stellar second season. Despite the show gaining more passionate fans, showrunner Damon Lindelof decided to end on the program on its own terms. Actor Justin Theroux, for the right (creative) reasons, is pleased the show is coming to an end.

Below, Justin Theroux sits down with us to discuss The Leftovers‘ final season and that big moment from season two.

GoldenEye

Two decades after GoldenEye, star Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are looking to team up again, albeit for a very different kind of movie. They’re joining forces for Across the River and Into the Trees, based on Ernest Hemingway‘s 1950 novel about an older man who travels to an exotic location and strikes up a romance with a much younger woman. So on second thought, maybe Across the River and Into the Trees has something in common with James Bond after all.  Read More »

the clapper cast

There is something eminently watchable about Ed Helms, who has spent a significant portion of his career suffering onscreen for our amusement. With his role as a regular correspondent on The Daily Show, her perfected the act of playing a buffoon lacking any and all self-awareness. In The Office, he elevated his oblivious blowhard persona to the next level, often facing all sorts of painful repercussions for his actions. And then he appeared in the new Vacation and the Hangover sequels, which is punishment enough for ten comedians.

Now, he’s looking to play another sad-sack punching bag in The Clapper, which will team him up with Amanda Seyfried and writer/director Dito Montiel.

hail caesar review

With Hail, Caesar!, Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted a movie that’s amusing but baffling, challenging but easygoing, and frivolous but about everything. It’s a film that wears its frustration on its sleeve like a badge of honor, inviting you to engage with it even as it tries to hard to keep you at a distance. It’s funny and sad, silly and serious. In other words, it’s a Coen brothers movie. We’re all probably going to like it a lot more in five years if we’re unsure about it now.

Now that Hail, Caesar! has been out for an entire weekend and you’ve had a chance to see it (because you definitely went out and saw the new Coen brothers film on its opening weekend, right?), let’s take this opportunity to explore how this Hollywood farce fits into the larger Coen canon. Like all of their films, this film reflects their larger worldview and shares ideas with some of their best work. Hail, Caesar!, halfway between Barton Fink and A Serious Man, a cousin of Inside Llewyn Davis and Miller’s Crossing, feels like it fills a specific gap in their overall filmography.

Naturally, spoilers lurk ahead.
