Goat trailer

It’s no secret that fraternity hazing can be an nasty and demeaning experience. Even films and TV series that show Greek life in an affectionate light feature at least a few scenes of pledges undertaking painful or humiliating tasks. But Andrew Neel‘s Goat, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year, reveals just how ugly it can get.

Based on a memoir by Brad Land, the drama stars Ben Schnetzer as a 19-year-old college student recovering from a brutal assault. He decides to rush a frat that his slightly older brother (Nick Jonas) already belongs to, and soon finds himself surrounded by a toxic stew of violence, aggression, and abuse even more traumatizing than the earlier attack. David Gordon Green helped with the script, James Franco has a cameo as an alum who can’t let go of his frat boy days, because it’s not a real indie drama unless James Franco is rattling around in there somewhere.

Five Nights in Maine trailer

What happens when a first time feature filmmaker throws two powerhouse performers at each other? You might get something like Maris Curran‘s Five Nights in Maine, starring David Oyelowo as a grieving widower who visits his estranged mother-in-law (Dianne Wiest). Their relationship is chilly to begin with, and they aren’t exactly quick to warm to each other once they’re face-to-face. But the visit sets both on a difficult journey of healing.

Five Nights in Maine hit the festival circuit last year, and is now headed for release in the U.S. next month. Rosie Perez co-stars as Wiest’s nurse, and Teyonah Parris plays Oyelowo’s sister. Watch the Five Nights in Maine trailer below.  Read More »

The Winds of Winter

For six seasons, the Starks have been warning us: “winter is coming.” In the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, winter finally, officially arrived. That’s bad news for the people of Westeros, because their winters last for years and also because there are a bunch of ice zombies eager to take over the continent. But it turns out the arrival of winter is not so great for us here in the real world, either.

Although HBO has yet to announce an official premiere date for Game of Thrones season 7, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have revealed that the production schedule is getting delayed so they can actually shoot in cold and gloomy weather. And since Game of Thrones season 7 is starting late, it’ll probably premiere late as well.  Read More »

If you are a slightly older actor from the United Kingdom capable of growing a fine beard and wearing a convincing scowl, there is a strong chance you have appeared on HBO’s Game of Thrones at some point. And if you haven’t appeared on Game of Thrones, it may be your fault for turning it down in the early days, before it was a gigantic hit that would put you in front of an audience of millions and millions of rabid fans who obsess over every episode.

Every so often, one of the actors who turned the show down speaks up, offering a glimpse at what could have been. Today, that slightly older actor from the United Kingdom capable of growing a fine beard and wearing a convincing scowl who turned down the show in its infancy is the great Brian Cox.

The Intervention Trailer

Several titles that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year are making their way to limited releases and VOD this summer. One of the more charming offerings is The Intervention, a relationship dramedy fueled by an incredible cast, some sharp writing, and one intervention that turns into multiple cries for help among a group of four couples on a weekend getaway.

Imperium trailer

You’ve gotta hand it to Daniel Radcliffe. While he’ll probably always best be known for playing the Boy Who Lived, he’s made some really interesting and eclectic choices post-Harry Potter. You can currently see him playing a tech whiz in Now You See Me 2 and a farting corpse in Swiss Army Man, and next we’ll see him as a fake white supremacist in Imperium.

Based on a true story, Imperium stars Radcliffe as an idealistic FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a radical right-wing terrorist group. It’s a darker, grittier role than we’ve seen Radcliffe tackle in the past, and it requires him to bust out his American accent. Is he up for the challenge? Find out with the Imperium trailer below.  Read More »

game of thrones fan theories

Game of Thrones season 6 concluded with a bang last week, killing off a significant portion of the cast and radically shifting the power structure of the entire show. With season seven set to begin filming soon and with George R.R. Martin’s sixth novel nowhere in sight, fans can only do one thing: wait. Oh, and talk. And speculate. And argue about fan theories. We’ve actually reached peak fan theory – my mother-in-law was grilling me about a few of the wackier ones this past week.

So let’s take a moment to look over the main fan theories currently buzzing around the internet following the conclusion of season 6. Some of these are plausible and others are infuriating, but we wouldn’t be Game of Thrones fans unless we were arguing about something.
