After delivering the acclaimed HBO series The Wire, David Simon is headed back to the cable network with the six-part miniseries Show Me a Hero.
Set in Yonkers, New York in the 1960s, the story follows the struggles of a young mayor (Oscar Isaac) trying to balance politics and justice. There’s quite the cast on display in the latest trailer for the miniseries, including Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina and Winona Ryder. Looks like another future Emmy nominee for HBO.

Just in case this month’s The Stanford Prison Experiment failed to satisfy your craving for fact-based Sundance dramas about messed-up psychological experiments, Magnolia Pictures has just dropped the new trailer for Experimenter.
Peter Sarsgaard stars as Stanely Milgram, whose name has become synonymous with his most famous experiment. In the early 1960s, with the horrors of Nazi Germany still a recent memory, he demonstrated the willingness of ordinary people to follow orders.
Also starring are Winona Ryder as Milgram’s wife, Jim Gaffigan as his colleague, and Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, Taryn Manning, and Anthony Edwards as some of their subjects. Watch the Experimenter trailer after the jump. Read More »
This December will mark the official 25th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands, easily one of the best films director Tim Burton has ever made. It represents a fond memory of a time when the filmmaker was still cooking up original stories for the big screen.
To honor this milestone anniversary, Fox Home Entertainment has a restored, special edition Blu-Ray hitting shelves in October. That’s a few months away, but it will be available for pre-order at Comic-Con this week, along with a limited edition lithograph created by Gallery 1988 artist Mark Englert. It’s a pretty wonderfil piece of work that you can see in full after the jump along with details on the Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary Blu-Ray. Read More »

James Franco got pretty weird in Spring Breakers earlier this year, but Alien is a big old teddy bear compared to the unhinged meth kingpin he plays in Homefront. He’s so scary, in fact, that Jason Statham may be the only man who can take him down.
The Gary Fleder-directed, Sylvester Stallone-scripted thriller follows a former DEA agent who retires to a quiet rural community to start a new life with his daughter. But the peace is soon disturbed when he discovers the town’s secret, and the town discovers one of his. A new red-band trailer has hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

In most respects, Gary Fleder‘s Homefront sounds like a pretty typical action thriller. Jason Statham stars as a retired DEA agent, who moves to a small, quiet town for the sake of his young daughter. Once there, however, he quickly gets entangled with the local villain, a drug lord played by… James Franco. Wait, what?
It’s an oddball combination for sure, but it’s also an effective one in that it got our attention right away. In addition to those two, Kate Bosworth, Winona Ryder, and Rachelle Lefevre also star. Oh, and Sylvester Stallone wrote the script based on book by Chuck Logan. Watch the trailer after the jump.

After the dual disappointments of Killing Me Softly and Gangster Squad, I’m feeling a little burned out on mob movies at the moment. So maybe it’s just my mood that has me unimpressed with the new trailer for The Iceman. On the one hand, director Ariel Vromen seems to have a flair for visuals, the cast looks strong, and the fact-based premise is intriguing. On the other, it all looks so tiresomely familiar.
Michael Shannon stars as real-life hitman Richard Kuklinski, who allegedly racked up over 100 kills over a four-decade career. He makes good money whacking people for gangster Roy Demeo (genre staple Ray Liotta), until an incident involving Demeo’s underling (David Schwimmer) forces Kuklinski out of their operation. He then teams up with freelance killer Robert Pronge (Chris Evans), which comes with its own complications. Winona Ryder also stars, as Kuklinski’s oblivious wife. Watch the new trailer after the jump.
