Kristen Stewart in Personal Shopper trailer

Kristen Stewart has moved on from romancing vampires to communicating with ghosts. In Olivier Assayas‘ Personal Shopper, she plays a young woman who lives in Paris and works as a professional shopper for a celebrity. Her real preoccupation, though, is waiting for a supernatural message from her deceased twin brother. She hangs out in his home and keeps her eyes and ears peeled for signs from beyond. Watch the Personal Shopper trailer below.  Read More »

Aftermath trailer

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been doing some good work these past few years not enough people are seeing. The projects he’s been in — Escape PlanMaggie, and The Last Stand — have problems, but he’s rarely one of them. He gives one of his most natural performances to date in Maggie, but the movie, like some of Schwarzenegger’s other recent projects, was overlooked. Let’s hope that won’t be the case for his new Darren Aronofsky-produced drama/thriller, Aftermath.

Below, watch the Aftermath trailer.

A Cure for wellness super bowl spot

Director Gore Verbinski‘s last four films are gigantic popcorn movies. Rango, the Pirates of the Carribean sequels, and The Lone Ranger are enormous in scope. With A Cure for Wellness, the director is scaling things back a bit, sticking with mostly one location: one messed up, horrific, and beautifully designed spa.

Below, watch A Cure for Wellness Super Bowl spot.

dragged across concrete cast

Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn are reteaming for S. Craig Zahler‘s (Bone Tomahawk) new thriller, Dragged Across Concrete. Gibson directed Vaughn in Hacksaw Ridge, which has been nominated for Best Picture and Best Director at this year’s Academy Awards. Since Gibson’s acclaimed World War II drama received some awards love, we also heard that he might star in the Daddy’s Home sequel, so we may start to see more and more of the controversial actor in front of the camera.

Below, learn more about the Dragged Across Concrete cast.

michael fassbender

Nothing can stop Michael Fassbender. Assassin’s Creed is a box office bomb? He’ll still headline major movies. Steve Jobs becomes one of the most criminally overlooked movies of the past few years? He’ll get an Oscar nomination. X-Men: Apocalypse is an incredible disappointment? He’ll still make each and every one of his scenes sing because he’s pretty darn great at that acting thing. So yeah, I’ll take a look at Michael Fassbender as Norwegian detective Harry Hole in Tomas Alfredson‘s upcoming film adaptation of the novel, The Snowman.

Hard Powder - Liam Neeson

Ever since Liam Neeson fought through a long line of bad guys to get his daughter back in Taken, he’s starred in more than enough action thrillers where he’s out for revenge or trying to save someone he loves. We thought we may have finally seen the last of them with Taken 3 in 2014 and Run All Night in 2015. But we were mistaken.

At the Berlin Film Market next month, an action thriller called Hard Powder will be shopped around that has Liam Neeson seeking vengeance in the Rocky Mountains. So it’s not unlike The Grey meets any other Liam Neeson thriller from the past decade. Find out more about Hard Powder after the jump. Read More »

Bates Motel Rihanna

Bates Motel returns for its fifth season on February 20th. The show, which more than a few people were initially skeptical about, went on to become a success for A&E. While the series began to lose some steam around season two or three, it’s now coming to a close with season five, which creators Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) had always envisioned. Actor, singer and artist Rihanna is a part of the final season, and she’s co-starring as Marion Crane, famously played by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock‘s Psycho.

Below, get your first look at Rihanna in Bates Motel.

sicario sequel

Filming wraps on the Sicario sequel, titled Soldado, in a couple of days in Mexico City. Just the other day, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) gave an update on the project, saying, “If Sicario is a film about the militarization of police and that blending over, this is removing the policing aspect from it.” Soldado deals heavily with immigration, so Sheridan and producer Basil Iwanyk (John Wick: Chapter Two) believe the sequel is relevant in more than a few ways. Iwanyk is also confident the sequel is bigger, has more “bells and whistles,” and digs deeper into the characters. Below, learn more about the Sicario sequel. Read More »
