irresistible trailer

For the past four years, we’ve been desperately missing Jon Stewart‘s voice. The former host of The Daily Show stepped down right before the 2016 elections and we’ve been deprived of Stewart’s acerbic jokes over the current political climate. But Stewart is finally back — though not in front of the camera. Stewart writes and directs the political satire Irresistible, which stars Steve Carell and Rose Byrne as two rival political consultants battling it out in America’s heartland over a race for mayor of a small Wisconsin town. Watch the Irresistible trailer below.

Emma Trailer

Jane Austen’s classic comedy Emma has been adapted several times in a variety of different ways. Gwyneth Paltrow starred in a film adaptation back in 1996, BBC turned it into a miniseries in 2009, and the classic teen comedy Clueless gave us a modern spin on the tale that may as well be the definitive adaptation of the story. But director Autumn de Wilde may have offered some competition in a new adaptation that keeps the period setting but seems to have a quirky, contemporary comedic sensibility. Watch the Emma trailer below. Read More »

harriet review

Cynthia Erivo was a star the moment she opened her mouth and released a honeyed run of notes in Bad Times at the El Royale. Stealing 2018 in two back-to-back performances of El Royale and the critically acclaimed Widows, it was clear that the Tony-winning British actress was going to conquer the silver screen as well. And she’s got a role worthy of her star power in the rousing biopic Harriet, which follows the life of the slave-turned-abolitionist. Erivo is magnificent in the Kasi Lemmons-directed film, channeling a fiery rage and raw vulnerability in a performance that soars above the generic biopic formula that Harriet unfortunately cannot escape.
