If you’re lucky, this weekend brings the action shoot’em up flick Free Fire to a theater near you. It’s the latest film from High Rise and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley. But don’t worry if you think the filmmaker’s work is a little too weird or twisted for your tastes, because this is easily his most accessible film yet.
Free Fire follows a black market arms deal gone wrong in 1970s Boston as an IRA buyer (Cillian Murphy) and a South African gun runner (Sharlto Copley) end up in a gun fight in the middle of an abandoned warehouse, with both their sides exchanging shots, trying to get the money and attempting to make it out alive. It’s relentlessly brutal, but it’s also extremely funny, as evidenced by a new clip from the movie that will probably make District 9 fans grin a bit.

Ask anyone you know and they could probably pull out an Arnold Schwarzenegger impression for you. The star of The Terminator, Predator, and Conan the Barbarian has one of the most distinct voices in Hollywood, but he’s rarely done voice over work and has never narrated a documentary film before. That changes with Wonders of the Sea 3D, a doc about ocean conservation that’s co-directed by the son of famed explorer Jacques Cousteau.
See what Arnold Schwarzenegger narrating a doc looks like in the promo reel below. (Spoiler alert: it’s pretty fantastic.) Read More »
In case it wasn’t clear in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, the teaser trailer for this summer’s sequel affirmed that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) has some romantic feelings for Gamora (Zoe Saldana). The new character Mantis (Pom Klementieff) revealed as much by way of her psychic empathy, allowing her to feel the emotions of others just by touching them. Now it looks like the romance continues to blossom ever-so-slightly as Star-Lord and Gamora share a quick dance to a tune by Sam Cooke.

Two Brits don American — and in Henry Cavill‘s case, heavily Southern — accents to portray soldiers in the upcoming Netflix war drama, Sand Castle.
Set in 2003 during the occupation of Iraq, a group of American soldiers are tasked to repair a water pumping station in a dangerous rural village, but things don’t go quite as planned. Nicholas Hoult is the naive American private at the center of this drama, based on the experiences of screenwriter Chris Roessner, who “learns the true cost of war.”
