Tom Hardy is coming to FX next week with a new series called Taboo that sees him inheriting what’s left of his father’s shipping empire in 1814, bringing with him a ruthless attitude for dealing with his competitors and anyone who stands in his way. It appears merging deadly, strong lead characters with business from centuries ago is a popular trend in TV right now, because Jason Momoa is venturing even further back in time for a new series on Netflix.
Frontier sees Jason Momoa as Declan Harp, a fur trader who is driven by lust and revenge, basically a Khal Drogo for the late 1700s. Harp finds himself warring with various factions for control of the North American fur trade, and all the power, money and glory that goes with it. In the first Frontier trailer, you can see that Jason Momoa is all business. Watch it below. Read More »
Follow me through this inter-dimensional gateway. Trust me. It’ll only take a few minutes. Welcome to Universe 6418, one of infinite dimensions in the sprawling multiverse that makes up creation. No, no. We’re not here to see who’s in the White House. You don’t want to know who’s in there. We’re just here to take a peek at the posters at the local movie theater. Yep, this is the universe where Armie Hammer became a massive movie star, where Diego Luna was a household name long before Star Wars, and where Katee Sackhoff parlayed the success of Battlestar Galactica into a Scarlett Johansson-esque career as an all-purpose cinematic badass.
Now let’s go home, back to the universe where Sackhoff is doing perfectly fine, starring in TV’s Longmire and lending her talents to occasional horror movies like Don’t Knock Twice, which finds the former Starbuck facing off against a witch.

They save the day and get to go home, leaving behind plenty of arduous work behind for the average joes.

I missed seeing The Girl With All the Gifts at last year’s Fantastic Fest and came to regret it as many friends and colleagues kept on telling my how much they enjoyed it, with director Colm McCarthy taking home a directing prize at the festival’s awards. More than a few people compared it to The Last of Us, the incredible post-apocalyptic video game whose movie adaptation is currently mired in development hell, which is the kind of praise that would put anything on my radar.
It’s been six months since we’ve seen a trailer for the film, so this new preview is a nice reminder that yes, this movie still exists and we’ll all be able to watch it fairly soon.

Before this sad news even transpired, HBO already had a documentary about the mother/daughter relationship between the two Hollywood stars planned for a premiere in March, following a debut at the Cannes Film Festival last year. But following the deaths of both subjects, they’ve bumped up the premiere in their memory.
Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds takes a look at the lives of these strong, wonderful women, their work in front of the camera, their relationship off-screen, and all the Hollywood tabloid headlines that came from both of their lives.

Technically, The Founder has already hit in theaters, but with a limited run so small and so haphazard you likely didn’t even know it happened. Fortunately, it’s about to get a much wider release in the coming weeks. And this time, there’s a trailer and everything so you can get ready to dig in.
Directed by John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks) from a script by Robert Siegel (The Wrestler), The Founder chronicles the dizzying rise of Ray Kroc — a struggling salesman who transformed McDonald’s from a tiny burger operation in Southern California into the gazillion-dollar global empire that it is today. It will probably not surprise you to learn that he pissed a lot of people off and made a lot of enemies and maybe lost his soul along the way. Watch the latest The Founder trailer below. Read More »
Sequels to romances are few and far between, but Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t your average romance. Based on E.L. James‘ erotic thriller of the same name, the film adaptation was a box office sensation pulling in over $571 million on a budget of just $41 million. However, the sequel Fifty Shades Darker isn’t just a result of the big box office, because there was a whole trilogy of books before the first movie even got off the ground.
Now a new Fifty Shades Darker trailer has arrived, playing to its prime target audience during the premiere of The Bachelor last night. The new trailer shows the next chapter of the romance between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson), and it appears things are not only going to get kinky again, but also deadly.
