The Riot Club

Every generation needs its preppy boy drama filled with up-and-coming faces. For the late ’80s and ’90s, it was Dead Poets Society. In the aughts, it was The Skulls. Now, in the twenty-teens, it might be The Riot Club.

Max Irons and Sam Claflin play the two newest members of Oxford University’s most exclusive fraternity. Though the upper-crust clique lives for debauchery, things take an ugly turn when one particular evening veers out of control. Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) directed. Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, and Jessica Brown Findlay also star. Watch The Riot Club trailer after the jump.  Read More »

House of Cards video recap

There are less than 24 hours to go until Netflix premieres the third season of House of Cards, meaning you’re running out of time if you still need to catch up or brush up on the first two seasons. Luckily, the Fine Bros. are here to help.

The fast-talking duo have put together a nine-minute House of Cards video recap that covers the past 26 episodes. You’ll have a hard time finding a more efficient way to get yourself up to speed. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

Love & Mercy

Brian Wilson wasn’t a conventional person, so why should he get a conventional biopic? Love & Mercy casts not one but two actors as the Beach Boys musician. Paul Dano plays him in the 1960s, when he was a young man on track for greatness; John Cusack plays him in the 1980s, as he’s struggling to get out from under an abusive relationship with his doctor Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).

Leaving aside the fact that Dano, Cusack, and Wilson don’t really look alike at all, Love & Mercy seems like an artful exploration of an American music icon. Elizabeth Banks also stars as Melinda Ledbetter, the woman who would become Wilson’s second wife. Watch the Love and Mercy trailer after the jump.

new linklater film

A new Richard Linklater film is a prospect we’ll happily look forward to. When it is a collaboration with Annapurna Pictures, the company run by Megan Ellison, we’re really going to perk up. The director is in talks to direct a film adaptation of Where’d You Go Bernadette, the 2012 novel by Maria Semple that features an architect who goes missing, and is narrated by the missing woman’s 15-year old daughter. We’ve got more info on the potential new Linklater film below. Read More »

Creed Synopsis

Creed sounds like a great way to structure a new chapter in the very long-running Rocky saga. For this film, Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky, but he’s not the central figure. Rather, Rocky is working as trainer to Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan, above), the son of his old rival Apollo Creed. In other words, Rocky is stepping into the shoes of his old trainer, Mickey. Now a Creed synopsis has surfaced, giving us a few new details about the story, including one which suggests the end of Rocky’s own path could be near. Read More »

Boyhood BTS - Richard Linklater and Ellar Coltrane

When we last saw Mason Jr., he was contemplating a future full of possibility on the first day of college. Now Boyhood director Richard Linklater says we may yet get a chance to see what comes of that future.

The filmmaker reveals he’s considering a sequel to Boyhood which would follow Mason Jr. through his 20s. Unlike Boyhood, though, it probably won’t take 12 years to shoot. Read Linklater’s comments on a possible Boyhood sequel after the jump.  Read More »

A family quietly disintegrates when a stay at home dad (Chris Messina, who also directs) decides to take a break, leaving his workaholic wife (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to keep her son’s development on track, and deal with her father (Don Johnson) as she tries to move forward with her own personal life.

Game of Thrones Season 4

Game of Thrones the show is all gloom and doom. If you’re unlucky, you’re poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death. If you’re really unlucky, you’re suffering a torment worse than death itself. And even if you are kinda lucky, all it means is that you can look forward to getting poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death on a different day.

Game of Thrones the set, however, is a different story. As a new blooper reel reveals, the actors are having a much better time than the characters they’re portraying, whether they’re giggling over flubbed lines or dealing with an unruly cat. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel after the jump.  Read More »
