all the money in the world

In a highly surprising move, Ridley Scott has decided to remove all of Kevin Spacey‘s scenes in the upcoming All the Money In the World and reshoot them with actor Christopher Plummer. The decision comes as a result of multiple sexual assault allegations levied against Spacey in recent weeks. This is an unprecedented decision: All the Money In the World was already finished, had released a trailer, and was set for release in a month. Even more surprising is news that Scott and the producers still plan to adhere to the film’s original release date.

daddy's home 2 trailer

The new Daddy’s Home 2 trailer makes two things immediately clear. First, this is very much a holiday movie, a comedy that leans heavily into its Christmas iconography and looks to attract families who want to sit in silence and not talk to each other for a few hours. Second, this movie looks loud. Seriously. Like Transformers loud. Everything in this trailer is pitched to 11 and I’m pretty sure it broke my old man ear drums.

Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg, actor and the patron saint of Boston, has had a wild career, careening from some truly great movies to outright junk. But surprisingly, the role he’s most ashamed of is one of his most acclaimed. In a recent interview, Wahlberg confessed that he asked God to forgive him for his work in Paul Thomas Anderson’s porn opus Boogie Nights.

all the money in the world trailer

Ridley Scott has been hard at work, with two high-profile films released this year. While Alien: Covenant met with mixed reactions from fans of the beloved sci-fi franchise that he begat, All the Money in the World arrives with virtually no expectations from movie goers.

It’s a wonder that this film wasn’t on our radar sooner. Starring award-winning actors like Kevin Spacey, Michelle Williams, and Mark Wahlberg, and based on the real-life kidnapping of billionaire J. Paul Getty’s grandson, it’s the type of buzzy fare that will immediately get audience attention, if not awards attention. That’s likely what the recently released trailer is aiming for.

Daddy's Home 2 Trailer

A couple years ago, Paramount Pictures tried to corner the market on family comedy during the holiday season by releasing Daddy’s Home in theaters just a couple weeks before Christmas. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg going head-to-head was enough to rake in over $150 million at the domestic box office, so the studio fast-tracked the sequel for release this fall, and they’re really leaning into the holiday comedy angle hard this time.

Daddy’s Home 2 finds Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg friendlier than ever as they decide to bring both of their families together for Christmas for the first time ever rather than house-hopping like they usually do. That plan gets a little more complicated when Dusty (Wahlberg) finds out that his father (Mel Gibson) will be joining in the holiday fun this year, and he’s a far cry from Brad’s (Ferrell) lighthearted dad (John Lithgow). Plus, a new Daddy’s Home 2 trailer reveals that John Cena is getting in on the Christmas clashing with a much bigger role than he had in the first movie. Read More »

triple frontier movie

Maybe third time’s the charm for the embattled Netflix thriller Triple Frontier.

The Netflix production recently lost star Ben Affleck but is currently negotiating with Mark Wahlberg to replace him. The long-gestating production has gone through numerous rounds of casting, with Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum once attached to star, as well as a revolving door of directors, including Kathryn Bigelow. Now J.C. Chandor is set to direct, with possibly Wahlberg and a few other notable actors in supporting roles.

transformers: the last knight box-office

Michael Bay‘s Transformers: The Last Knight had the lowest grossing opening day for any film in the 10-year-old franchise. The massive sequel, which has received terrible reviews but a fine Cinemascore, is still on track to make $65 million over the next five days. According to box-office analysts, it’ll fall short of expectations.

Meanwhile, the film’s star, Mark Wahlberg, believes Bay might come back to the franchise. Below, read his comments on the filmmaker and learn about the lower Transformers: The Last Knight box office numbers.

Mark Wahlberg Leaving Transformers

Earlier this year, Michael Bay indicated that Transformers: The Last Knight would be his farewell to the franchise based on the Hasbro toy sensation. This is something that he’s said several times before, only to get behind the camera again for another sequel, but this time it feels like he’s telling the truth, unless someone comes up with a cool spin-off idea that he can’t resist.

Following in Michael Bay’s footsteps, it appears that one franchise star may also be stepping away from the action spectacle film series. In a recent interview, Mark Wahlberg seems to reveal that he will also be done with Transformers after The Last Knight, though his wording makes it difficult to be definitive on the matter.

Thankfully, a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight reminds us of that fact when he’s introduced to a character played by Laura Haddock, an Oxford Professor who just had her first personal experience with a Transformer. Wahlberg gives her a little attitude when he’s forced to explain what he’s invented, and then…we’ll just let you see what happens after that.
