bloodline trailer

How much worse can things get for the Rayburn family? Based on the footage for the next season of Bloodline, apparently much, much worse, which is saying a lot, considering what these characters experienced in season 1. What the Rayburn family did last year isn’t going to go away quietly. In season 2, they’re going to have to face the decisions they’ve made.

Below, watch the Bloodline season 2 trailer (spoilers for season 1 follow).

Rogue One Ben Mendelsohn

The star of last week’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer was undoubtedly Jyn Erso, the “reckless, aggressive, undisciplined” rebel fighter played by Felicity Jones. But surrounding her is a cast that looks positively stuffed with potential scene-stealers, like the imposing figure played by Ben Mendelsohn. There’s not much we know for sure about the character at this point, other than that he’s some sort of high-ranking Imperial officer with an uncanny talent for keeping his white cape clean even as he drags it through the mud.

Which, of course, just means there’s lots and lots of room for theories and speculation. After the jump, let’s run down some guesses about who this mysterious Ben Mendelsohn Rogue One character might be.  Read More »

Ben Mendelsohn in Slow West

We have no reason to believe Ben Mendelsohn is anything but lovely in real life, but “menacing” is definitely his default mode in the movies. And Steven Spielberg will not be the one to change that. Spielberg is reportedly eyeing Mendelsohn for his ’80s nostalgia-fest Ready Player One, in which Mendelsohn would play (of course) the villain. If a deal closes, he’ll be the second actor cast after Olivia Cooke, who plays the female lead. More about the Ready Player One Ben Mendelsohn casting after the jump.  Read More »

Mississippi Grind trailer

Half Nelson duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are back this year with Mississippi Grind, an indie drama starring Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds as unlikely companions on a gambling road trip.

Along the way, the two men learn all about themselves and each other, and meet all sorts of characters, and reckon with the pasts that haunt them, and all of that usual stuff. But between Boden and Fleck’s eye for detail and Mendelsohn and Reynolds’ appealing chemistry, this one looks a cut above your average road trip flick. Watch the Mississippi Grind trailer after the jump.
