Without Remorse cast Bell Turner-Smith

Update: Variety reports that Queen and Slim star Jodie Turner-Smith has also been added to the cast. She’ll play Karen Greer, “a possible love interest to Jordan’s character.” In the Tom Clancy literary universe, Admiral Greer (played by James Earl Jones in three movies and Wendell Pierce in Amazon’s Jack Ryan series) recruited both Jack Ryan and John Clark/John Kelly. Karen Greer could be a relative, although she doesn’t appear in the books or previous movie/TV adaptations. Our original story from September 17 continues below.

While most of us would probably rather forget that Fox’s 2015 Fantastic Four film exists, we’re about to see two of that movie’s cast members reunite. Former Ben Grimm/The Thing actor Jamie Bell is the latest to join the Without Remorse cast, meeting up with former Johnny Storm/The Human Torch actor Michael B. Jordan, who’s leading the new spy thriller for Paramount. Learn about Bell’s role in the upcoming film below. Read More »

the hunt release

Earlier this month, Universal’s decided to indefinitely shelve the The Hunt in lieu of a string of tragic mass shootings and political controversy stirred up by Fox News and Donald Trump. The decision was treated with some derision among critics who argued that the polarizing logline for the satirical action thriller, which follows a group of elite liberals who are hunting down a group of people from conservative red states referred to as “deplorables,” shouldn’t be the sole reason that the movie was scrapped. But The Hunt may have a future in theaters if producer Jason Blum has anything to say about it. The Blumhouse Productions CEO revealed that he thinks a release for The Hunt could happen at some point in the future.

the day shall come trailer

In 2010, filmmaker Chris Morris came out the gate running with his first feature, Four Lions, a film that satirized Islamic terrorism through a group of inept British radicals. For his second long-awaited film, it seems like he’ll stick with that same brand of envelope-pushing comedy. The Day Shall Come takes aim at U.S. extremism, or rather, the farce at the heart of real life FBI sting operations. Watch The Day Shall Come trailer below.

It Must Be Heaven review

There’s something to be said about the blissfulness of ignorance. Festivals are prime places to be able to go into a film cold, often not even knowing the title, let alone the subject and synopsis. Give me a movie and I’ll apprehend, no matter what, and hopefully find something to fall for. This rarefied way of seeing Elia Suleiman’s It Must Be Heaven proved heavenly, and there’s perhaps no better way of seeing this charming, sweet and intelligent film. Read More »

years and years trailer

A powerful political leader who stokes anti-immigrant fears and weaponizes an increasingly polarized community? Where have we heard that before? Years & Years may be a new HBO limited series that depicts a dystopian near-future in which Emma Thompson plays a charming and controversial government leader who threatens to tear Britain apart, but it feels alarmingly relevant to today’s political landscape.
