Oscar Isaac

Ever heard of a movie called Revenge for Jolly!? If you have seen it, you’d probably remember, not only because it’s about a man trying to find out who’s behind his dog’s mysterious death, but mainly because the film stars Oscar IsaacKristen WiigElijah WoodKevin CorriganRyan Phillippe, Garrett DillahuntAmy SeimetzBobby MonyihanAdam BrodyGillian Jacobsand the film’s screenwriter, Brian Petsos. Great cast, right? Who wouldn’t want to see all of those actors come together in the same movie?

Well, despite such an impressive ensemble, Revenge for Jolly! flew way under the radar back in 2012, and it wasn’t reviewed very kindly, either. Four years later, actor/screenwriter Brian Petsos and Oscar Isaac have reunited for a new short film, Lightningface.

Watch the Lighningface trailer below.

Oscar Isaac in Ex Machina

Poe Dameron may have been Oscar Isaac‘s most famous movie role of 2015, but arguably his best role was as tech genius Nathan in Alex Garland‘s Ex Machina. The character allowed Isaac to be both mysterious and ordinary, seductive and repulsive, and above all, mesmerizing. No wonder, then, that he’s apparently eager to team up with Garland again, this time for Annihilation. Isaac joins an already incredible cast that includes Natalie PortmanGina RodriguezTessa Thompson, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

The Force Awakens deleted scenes

Over 20 minutes worth of scenes were removed from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An early cut of the sequel was two hours and forty minutes, but considering the film moves like a bullet, as director J.J. Abrams‘ movies tend to, they were probably all wise cuts.

Below, Abrams explains why these scenes didn’t make the final cut, and reveals some first look photos at some of the deleted scenes we’ll see on the home video release. (Spoilers ahead, obviously.)

X-Men Apocalypse

20th Century Fox has dropped the new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, the first time we’ll see the core X-Men team since X-Men: Days of Future Past wiped the slate clean and rebooted the timeline. Not that turning time off and on again seems to have helped much: the X-Men, as usual, find themselves faced with chaos and devastation and possibly the end of the world as we know it, this time thanks to an ancient, godlike mutant known as Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac).

Professor X (James McAvoy) continues fighting the good fight with his team of fledgling superheroes, including the young Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), while Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is enlisted as one of Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen. Watch the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer after the jump. Read More »

poe dameron comic

Poe Dameron is the man. The Resistance soldier is the best damn fighter pilot in the sky, and he’s nothing but a big ball of drive, kindness and charisma. Oscar Isaac is incredibly charismatic in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making you invest in a character you really don’t know that much about. Maybe we’ll learn more about the character in Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is currently filming, but until then, we can go on a few other adventures with the fighter pilot thanks to a new Poe Dameron comic. Learn all about it below.

“I need the truck,” is the first line in the script for Mojave. It comes on page five, and not until page 17 does a real conversation emerge. There are a few lines here and there in the opening, but screenwriter William Monahan introduces Thomas (Garrett Hedlund) purely through action. The artist, struggling with success, drives out to the desert to reflect, which Monahan once did himself.

What if someone like Thomas or Mr. Monahan, but far worse, was also in the desert? That’s when Jack (Oscar Isaac) appears, a highly educated and highly dangerous drifter. Thomas and Jack’s war begins with a conversation about the politics, the human condition, and Ahab’s missing leg.

And we dive into the details of Mojave during our conversation with Monahan, which begins after the jump.
