Even though Sam Worthington is the star of the highest grossing movie of all time, James Cameron’s Avatar, he’ll never quite be the box office draw as an actor like Will Smith. But it looks like he’ll try to follow closely in his footsteps on the dramatic side of things by starring in a movie that is basically his own Collateral Beauty.
The Shack, based on The New York Times bestselling novel of the same name, follows a father (Worthington) who falls into a deep depression after his daughter is abducted on a family vacation and found murdered in a remote cabin in Oregon. But one day, he receives a mysterious letter calling him back to the cabin, and what he finds may be exactly what he needs to get his life back on track.

Sleight was one of my favorite movies of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, which is saying something because Sing Street and Hunt For The Wilderpeople were some of the other movies in Park City this past January. It’s also in my top 10 magic movies of all time.
I’ve described the film as Doug Liman’s Go crossed with Now You See Me, with a side of Chronicle. Smart, fun, and thrilling, JD Dillard‘s feature film that wowed at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival with some great high concept ideas at a micro budget, earning an acquisition by Blumhouse and WWE Studios. Watch the first Sleight teaser trailer now embedded after the jump.

A murder mystery, a buff Archie, and plenty of teen angst are what a new Riverdale promo is selling. The CW’s take on the Archie comics is a present-day, slightly melodramatic look at Archie and the gang in their hometown of Riverdale, a place harboring a lot of dark secrets. The pilot debuted this year at San Diego Comic-Con, but it’ll air early next year on The CW.

It’s been a few years since we last heard from director Wes Anderson, who vanished into thin air following the well-deserved critical and financial success of 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel (which is a masterpiece and very possibly his best movie).
