Do you remember Triple Frontier? The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Zero Dark Thirty director Katherine Bigelow. Then it jumped to Netflix with Margin Call director J.C. Chandor at the helm, co-writing the script with Mark Boal, but it had a hard time holding onto a cast. Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg were both slated to lead the movie, and then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum were part of the cast before they all fell away.
Odds be damned, Triple Frontier finally made it in front of cameras. It still has an impressive cast, with Ben Affleck leading a team of Special Forces operatives played by Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal, and the first trailer makes it look like one of the best Netflix original movies yet.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine came this close to death when FOX canceled the cop comedy series starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller and Dirk Blocker.

Now the first Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 trailer has arrived, and it finally gives Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) the John McClane moment he’s always dreamed of. Plus, it looks like NBC has given Brooklyn Nine-Nine a much bigger budget to play with. Check it out below. Read More »

All the world was a stage for William Shakespeare — but what happens when the curtains drop and the stage burns down? He uneasily retires to a life in the country with a neglected family and broken relationships — at least, that’s what Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming period drama All Is True assumes about the legendary playwright’s mysterious twilight years.
Not much is known about the Shakespeare’s uncertain final years, a topic that has long intrigued Branagh, who has always wanted to explore the playwright’s forgotten period. And he does as both the star and director of All Is True, which also stars Judi Dench and Ian McKellen. Watch the All Is True trailer below.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?
This week we take a hike, buy overpriced art, find our dad’s secret stash, get reminded how troubled our healthcare system is in America, and question the price of internet fame. Read More »
