Following a Sundance premiere back in January, Jason Lew‘s The Free World is now headed to theaters. Boyd Holbrook and Elisabeth Moss lead the downbeat romantic drama. He plays Mo, fresh out of prison after spending two decades locked away for a crime he didn’t commit. Nowadays he spends his days working at an animal shelter, which is where he meets Doris (Moss), the abused wife of a police officer.
She’s desperate for help and he’s helpless to turn her away, and the two strike up an intensely emotional bond that blossoms into a romance. Octavia Spencer and Sung Kang also star. Watch The Free World trailer below. Read More »

The Alien director’s oldest son, Jake, has made some great music videos (The Cranberries’ “Zombie”) throughout his career, and his last picture was the thoughtful drama Welcome to the Rileys. Ridley Scott’s daughter, Jordan Scott, directed Cracks, which features an often frightening and heartbreaking performance from Eva Green. Luke Scott, who worked as a second-unit director on The Marian and Exodus: Gods and Kings, has his debut feature-length film, Morgan, coming out shortly.

Were Narcos just another crime drama, it could go on indefinitely with the story of DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña chasing after drug kingpin Pablo Escobar . But it’s bound to historical events, and the fact is that Escobar couldn’t keep running forever. As of the end of season one, the clock is running out for Escobar. Season two picks up where season one left off, and promises to take us through to the end of Escobar’s story.
Which isn’t to say it’ll be smooth sailing for our heroes from here on out. Sure, we in 2016 know what becomes of Escobar (played here by Wagner Moura). But our heroes in the show, Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) and Peña (Pedro Pascal) are still in the middle of a very intense situation. As Murphy says, “Pablo is never more dangerous than when you almost have him.” Watch the latest Narcos season 2 trailer below. Read More »

Anya Taylor-Joy came seemingly out of nowhere to wow audiences in The Witch earlier this year. It was the kind of star-making performance that had us dying to see where she’d end up next, and luckily we haven’t had to wait too long for an answer. Taylor-Joy will be seen this fall in Morgan, a sci-fi thriller that marks the directorial debut of Luke Scott (son of Ridley Scott, who gets a producer credit).
As in The Witch, she plays a young woman that arouses fear and suspicion in others. Unlike in The Witch, her character in Morgan seems to know exactly what she’s doing. Taylor-Joy is Morgan, an artificial being created in a lab. Kate Mara stars as a corporate consultant sent to investigate a terrifying incident involving Morgan. The impressive cast also includes Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti. Watch the first Morgan trailer below. Read More »
