And she isn’t the only Mission: Impossible veteran on the list, either! Read More »

Okay so my card carrying membership card to the legion of modern board gamers is probably going to be revoked by featuring a Monopoly game on /Film, but my fandom for Back to the Future trumps all.

But do I really need to buy another version of Monopoly? See the photos of the Back to the Future Monopoly set after the jump!

Hey, did you hear the one about the ugly sex addict who can’t get laid? Of course you didn’t. We’ve got plenty of films and stories about sex addicts, with star-quality guys in the lead roles.

Wilson’s co-stars include Lena Headey, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ray Winstone, and that trio may be enough to demand a viewing. Check out the Zipper trailer below. Read More »
