The Mauritanian trailer

In Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, Tom Hanks plays a lawyer tasked with defending a man accused of being an enemy of the United States. In The Mauritanian, it’s Jodie Foster‘s turn to do the same thing – but her client is actually innocent. The film tells the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim), who was detained at the Guantánamo Bay detention camp for 14 years without being charged. Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars) co-stars as Foster’s character’s assistant, while Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Doctor Strange) is doing another one of his unnerving accents. Check out the latest The Mauritanian trailer below. Read More »

violence of action

After frequently popping up in blockbusters and critical darlings in the 2010s, Chris Pine has slowed down his workload following his scene-stealing role in the Wonder Woman films. The Wonder Woman 1984 actor has only appeared in a handful of feature films since 2019, instead appearing to pick and choose his roles with more discretion, executive producing and starring in the Patty Jenkins-directed limited series I Am the Night, for example.

So it feels like it’s about time for Pine to show his handsome mug again and re-establish the dramatic acting chops that he gave us a glimpse of in Hell or High Water. And what better way to do that than with a reunion with his Hell or High Water co-star Ben Foster, in a thriller directed by Tarik Saleh (The Nile Hilton Incident) which had been put up at the Virtual Cannes Market late last year? Pine and Foster will co-star in the thriller Violence of Action, which has now landed at STXfilms.

New Guy Ritchie Movie Aubrey Plaza

I, for one, think Aubrey Plaza should be in every movie, all the time. So I can’t complain about the news that she’s joining the cast of the new, currently untitled, Guy Ritchie movie. The action flick will see Ritchie reunite with Jason Statham, with Statham playing an MI6 agent trying to stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology. There’s no word on what character Plaza is playing, but here’s hoping Ritchie is smart enough to give her a big, substantial part and not just sideline her in some thankless role.

Songbird movie photos

Producer Michael Bay‘s pandemic thriller Songbird made headlines for being the first major film to be made during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Los Angeles. Then it made headlines again with reports that the production was not following COVID safety protocols. And yet again, Songbird made headlines for the negative online buzz around its trailer, which showed the films — let’s say ill-advised — apocalyptic vision of the pandemic. But in perhaps the most positive piece of news, and for those nervous about going to see movies amid surging COVID-19 cases, Songbird has set its VOD release for this December.

the miserable adventures of burt squire

It sounds like a dream to be stuck at sea with Harrison Ford, but it’s more of a comic nightmare for Ed Helms in the new STXfilms movie The Miserable Adventures of Burt Squire Abord the Horn High Yo. That mouthful of a title is for a new seafaring comedy pairing together the unlikely duo of Helms and Ford, as a family man who gets shipwrecked in the Atlantic Ocean, and the unhinged sea captain he is stuck with, respectively.

Here’s the interesting part: McAvoy won’t be given a script or any lines of dialogue, so he’ll essentially be blindly making his way through the narrative in real time on the set. Read More »
