Rogue Nation clip

Any franchise could be forgiven for growing a bit stale after twenty years and five installments, but against all odds the Mission: Impossible series is still going strong. While the new entry directed by Chris McQuarrie may not be an all-time high, it’s another solid entry that equals its predecessors in the stunt department, and features the most engaging new character since Simon Pegg and Philip Seymour Hoffman in III. Read our full Mission Impossible Rogue Nation review after the jump.  Read More »

The Knick S2 teaser

Here’s a gorgeous teaser for The Knick season two, which comes complete with an announcement that Steven Soderbergh‘s excellent series returns to Cinemax on October 16. Clive Owen and most of the rest of the S1 cast returns, but this time at least part of the story goes to San Francisco along with Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance). We still don’t know much about the thrust of this season, though we can expect it to deal with heroin, further competition over medical advances, and gangsters and loan sharking, for starters.

Not that you’ll see too much of all that in The Knick S2 teaser below, which is mostly lovely atmospheric shots, albeit ones that have a quiet beauty and sometimes even a grand sense of oppressiveness to them.  Read More »

Chris Farley in Mission Impossible

Unfortunately, in the winter of 1997, we lost comedy star Chris Farley. The Saturday Night Live veteran was overcome by fame and glory, letting drugs and alcohol rule a life that brought laughter and joy to millions. We’ll never know just how much more comedy Farley could have brought to the masses in future film and television projects.

Thankfully though, Farley is still able to bring us a good laugh from the footage that we already have of the actor hamming it up in films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. And friend of the site Todd Spence decided to use Farley’s signature comedies to lighten up this weekend’s latest blockbuster, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Chris Farley takes the role of Tom Cruise with footage of the actor intercut with the trailer for the action sequel to humorous effect. It’s amusing throughout, but it’s the payoff at the end that makes it all worth it. See Chris Farley in Mission Impossible after the jump! Read More »

Elders React to Batman v Superman

When the new trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego, you could feel the excitement from fans. But how does the trailer play to more general audiences? Or more specifically, how does it play to the elderly?

That’s what Fine Brothers Entertainment, the folks behind those adorable Kids React videos (we recently featured some youngsters learning that Transformers existed before 2007), found out when they sat down some lovely old people to watch the most recent trailer for the DC Comics match-up for the first time. Their reactions might be more adorable than the kids.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh and written by Max Landis, the action-comedy stars Eisenberg as an aimless stoner who’s secretly a highly trained operative.
