Actor Scott Shepherd may not have too many film credits to his name, but he seems to have everything required to become a great modern “that guy.” You know, an actor whose name you may not necessarily know, but whose presence is unmistakable. You watch him hold his own against Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies and you’re convinced that you’ve seen him in a dozen other movies. In reality, his biggest film role prior to that was “NYPD Detective” in Side Effects.
But showcasing your chops in a new Steven Spielberg thriller is a great way to shoot a massive syringe of adrenaline into your film career. Now, Shepherd is set to appear in the new Jason Bourne movie. That feels like the next natural step. Getting annoyed by an amateur spy played by Tom Hanks surely must lead to getting punched in the face by a master spy played by Matt Damon.

Gremlins director Joe Dante is plenty busy, but he’s not one of those filmmakers who seems to put out a new movie every year. Burying the Ex came about five years after The Hole, which arrived six years after Looney Tunes: Back in Action, and so on. So it’s exciting to hear he’s wasting no time getting started on his next project, Labirintus. Read about the Joe Dante Labirintus movie after the jump. Read More »

Nicholas Hoult has spent the past few years playing zombies and furry blue superheroes and sympathetic post-apocalyptic henchmen, so it’s only natural that he’d eventually end up in a movie that doesn’t require him to be slathered in prosthetics. That movie is Kill Your Friends, a darkly comedic thriller based on the novel by John Niven. A new trailer for the film has arrived and it presents a side of Hoult we haven’t been getting recently. Namely, the obsessive, unhinged, murder-y side.
Watch the new Kill Your Friends trailer after the jump.

If you haven’t ventured out to theaters to see the drug trafficking action thriller Sicario, allow me to recommend that you stop dragging your feet and take a chance on what may be one of the best films of the year. It’s an intense, white knuckle flick featuring a bad ass performance from Emily Blunt, and a scene-stealing turn from Benicio del Toro.
And when you see the film, you probably won’t realize there are actually a bunch of impressive, unnoticeable visual effects in the movie. But a Sicario visual effects reel from Oblique FX shows just what was real and what was digitally created. Having just seen the movie recently, I was floored after learning just how many visual effects were employed. However, if you haven’t seen Sicario, beware of minor spoilers. Read More »

We’re drowning in fall TV as it is — this week alone marks the premieres of The Leftovers, Homeland, The Flash, iZombie, Arrow, American Horror Story, and more — but don’t expect the deluge to let up anytime soon. Case in point: This November brings the premiere of The Man in the High Castle, Amazon’s Ridley Scott-produced adaptation on the Philip K. Dick novel.
The drama is set in an alternate 1962 where the Axis powers won World War II. A San Francisco woman (Alexa Davalos) comes into possession of a film reel depicting a world where the Allied powers were victorious, which inspires some very dangerous ideas. Luke Kleintank and Rufus Sewell also star. Watch The Man in the High Castle trailer after the jump. Read More »
