kylo ren redemption

Kylo Ren is one of the most interesting villains in the Star Wars franchise. Adam Driver‘s character was introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as a conflicted antagonist torn between his birth family and his chosen identity as commander of the First Order, a master of the Knights of Ren, and protege of the Supreme Leader Snoke. He was a character deeply embedded in the Dark Side of the Force, and yet, Driver’s ungainly performance and his shifting emotions made him a character that earned our sympathy, whether we liked it or not. But does a little sympathy mean that Kylo Ren is deserving of redemption in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? Not according to Driver.

Reylo in The Rise of Skywalker

The “will they, won’t they” aspect between Daisy Ridley‘s Rey and Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren is a hotbed of divisiveness in the Star Wars fan community, and everyone is waiting to see how that relationship plays out in this month’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which may be the final time these characters share the screen together.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Movie

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck became Hollywood superstars after the success of Good Will Hunting. Not only did the longtime friends star in the movie, but they won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay that year. But that was 22 years ago, and despite taking home one of the most prestigious awards Hollywood has to offer, they haven’t written together again. That’s about to change

Not too long ago, we learned Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were finally reteaming as writers for a movie called The Last Duel, a movie they co-wrote with Nicole Holofcener that will be directed by Ridley Scott. With Matt Damon making the publicity rounds for the release of Ford vs Ferrari this weekend, the actor and writer got a chance to explain why it took so long to reteam with his old Boston buddy for this forthcoming project.

the last duel cast

Adam Driver is 35 years old, and he’s already worked with filmmakers like Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg, Jim Jarmusch, Terry Gilliam, and the Coen Brothers, just to name a few. And very soon, he may add Sir Ridley Scott to his impressive list of collaborators.

Driver is currently in early talks to join the cast of The Last Duel, Scott’s upcoming period piece that has Matt Damon set to star in one of the lead roles. And while Damon was originally said to be facing off against his old pal Ben Affleck in this movie, it now appears that Driver will be taking the role that was seemingly intended for Affleck, while Affleck himself shifts into a supporting role instead.

The film follows a couple as their marriage disintegrates and distance comes between them, both figuratively and literally. Watch the new Marriage Story trailer for more. Read More »

the report trailer new

I saw The Report more than half-a-year ago at Sundance, and yet the movie has lingered with me ever since. It’s a powerful political drama/thriller, and it features what might just be the best performance of Adam Driver‘s career. Driver has quickly risen to be an actor worth paying attention to, and his work in this year’s Marriage Story is phenomenal.

But his performance in The Report is even better. And he still has Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the way. In short, Adam Driver is having a good year. The Report tells the true story of an investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program following 9/11, and all the dark facts dredged up in the process. Watch the latest The Report trailer below.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver are bringing “he said, she said” to a whole new level in Noah Baumbach‘s upcoming drama film Marriage Story. The two actors star as a husband and wife whose marriage slowly disintegrates until they decide to divorce — but the Netflix film offers a new twist on this sadly familiar story. At least, the trailers do: Two separate trailers titled “What I Love About Nicole” and “What I Love About Charlie” offer Johansson and Driver’s differing perspectives, from falling in love to falling out of love. Watch the Marriage Story trailers below.
