Any movie should consider itself lucky to have an ensemble as good as the one anchoring Mudbound, which includes Jason Mitchell, Garrett Hedlund, and, most unexpectedly, Mary J. Blige. Directed by Dee Rees (whose debut feature Pariah was a breakout favorite at Sundance 2011), the drama follows two families — one black, one white — living on the same farm in the Mississippi Delta around the time of World War II.
The white McAllans own the property, despite the fact that household head Henry (Jason Clarke) is a Memphis gentleman who knows little about the land, and seemingly moved his family to the country on a whim. The Jacksons, on the other hand, have worked these acres for generations, for one white owner after another. Both clans are forever changed when World War II hits, and then again when the war ends and brings their loved ones back home. Read More »
A new adventure featuring the classic movie monster King Kong is just a couple months away. Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is bringing the massive ape to the big screen in his largest form yet in Kong: Skull Island, but he’s not the only monster that a group of explorers have to contend with.
Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and more all encounter an endless array of giant creatures, from creepy spiders to gargantuan lizards and much more. Now a new Kong Skull Island trailer makes it hard to tell whether King Kong or these other monsters will be a larger threat to our human protagonists.

Following a revival of Godzilla back in 2014, another one of most menacing monsters of the movies is returning to theaters. Kong: Skull Island brings back the King of the Apes known as King Kong. And while we know that this new take on Kong will have ties to the same world that the new Godzilla exists in, eventually leading to a head-to-head battle between the two monsters in 2020, first we must have a proper introduction to the giant ape.

Ever since the first teaser trailer for Kong: Skull Island debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, the buzz about the action adventure reboot of the classic 1933 movie monster has been fairly non-existent. There was a little peak of excitement when a poster popped up at New York Comic-Con with some ties to the 2014 reboot of Godzilla, but then things quieted down again. However, we’re going to hear Kong roar again soon enough.
A new trailer for Kong: Skull Island was recently classified, and it should be arriving next week with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (both are Warner Bros. movies). But in the meantime, a new photo from the movie finally gives us our first good look at the new King Kong.

This first Straight Outta Compton trailer, which dramatizes the rise of the rap group N.W.A, comes complete with a long intro featuring founding members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
In the film, Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. plays his father, while Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell are Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E respectively. The film follows the late-’80s rise of the group, set against the conservative climate that was freaked out by the vivid portrayal of urban life, and goes at least up to the 1992 riots that were sparked by the beating of Rodney King. This Straight Outta Compton trailer is a full-on red-band edit, with some nudity and the hint of violence, but all the language necessary to represent N.W.A in their prime. It’s a great trailer, watch below. Read More »

See that pic below. Read More »
