Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday when families gather to feast and enjoy fellowship with each other. It’s also a time when you can’t help but get into an argument about politics with your extended family, creating tension in the household as you aggressively eat your pumpkin pie. Well, that dreaded conversation is about to get a whole lot worse thanks to a new comedy.

The Oath, a new film starring Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish from the producers of Get Out and BlacKkKlansman, unfolds at Thanksgiving in the wake of an unprecedented decision by the government asking citizens to sign a loyalty oath to the President of the United States of America. What the hell does that mean? We’re not sure, but The Oath teaser trailer will certainly make you feel like you’re home for the holidays. Read More »

whitney trailer

For a long time, Whitney Houston was simply “The Voice,” the uber-talented diva who could hit any note, who could pull off any run — and dominated the music charts for it. Then, she became the face of the tabloids, of washed up singers who struggled with a life of drugs, erratic behavior, and scandals. It was a bittersweet, beautifully transient career for the legendary singer that was cut short by her tragic death at the age of 48. Now, a documentary approved by the singer’s estate, will remind us of why we’ll always love Whitney Houston. See the Whitney trailer below.

I can only imagine box office

I Can Only Imagine, a faith-based film from Roadside Attractions, is a surprise box office hit. The film ended up in third place over the weekend, just below reigning box office king Black Panther and new release Tomb Raider, and above Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time. How did this happen?

Wonderstruck trailer

It’s been too long since director Todd Haynes and Julianne Moore have collaborated.

Haynes’ latest picture is Wonderstruck, based on screenwriter Brian Selznick‘s (“Hugo“) book of the same name.

Stronger trailer

Peter Berg’s Patriots Day earned solid reviews when it hit theaters last year, but the way that movie invented a single character who appeared at all of the major turning points of the 2013 Boston bombing struck me as disingenuous.

Now, director David Gordon Green is here with Stronger, a film that tells the true story of one of the bombing’s survivors, Jeff Bauman, played here by Jake Gyllenhaal. To me, this looks like a much better way of approaching the topic, and it looks like an emotional, inspiring story about overcoming adversity and personifying the term “Boston Strong.” Check out the first Stronger trailer below.

Beatriz at Dinner trailer

Director Miguel Arteta and screenwriter Mike White sounds like a dynamite combo. The Good Girl director and Enlightened creator linked up for Beatriz at the Dinner, which stars Salma Hayek and Jon Lithgow. Arteta and White tend to make heartfelt and sincere comedies, so their sensibilities should align nicely with Beatriz at Dinner.

manchester by the sea trailer

When Manchester by the Sea premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it was met with near universal acclaim from all who saw it. Many attendees declared it an early frontrunner for the best film of 2016. It started the 2017 Oscar conversation before the 2016 awards could even occur. The film was quickly purchased by Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions. Director Kenneth Lonergan, whose Margaret famously endured all kinds of hell on its way to release, was now responsible for a movie that looked like it could play far beyond an audience of faithful cineastes and critics.

The first Manchester by the Sea trailer has arrived and it’s full of drama and bittersweet laughs and glimpses at complex performances from the likes of Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. Oh, and there are Massachusetts accents. Oh boy, are there Massachusetts accents.
