Before The Looming Tower even begins, you know where it’s going to end. Yet that doesn’t make the series any less engrossing, or addictive.
Based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer-winning book, The Looming Tower is the story of how we ended up here – seemingly trapped in wars with no end in sight. It is the story of the individuals who tried, and failed, to prevent the events that would ultimately lead to 9/11. And it unfolds with all the heart-pounding intensity of a potboiler thriller. The end result is something that may ultimately prove to be the first truly great new TV series of 2018.

Director Alexander Payne has brought us plenty of outstanding quirky dramatic comedies, ranging from the dark laughs in Election to the family struggles of Nebraska with a little bit of cynical romance in-between with Sideways. Now he’s heading into sci-fi territory with his latest film, and the first teaser has arrived online.
Downsizing takes place in a future where scientists have figured out how to shrink humans down to about five inches tall as a way to deal with the overpopulation of the planet. Smaller societies mean less space required, and Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig are ready to embark on a new life as tiny people. Get your first look at the little civilization and the rest of the cast in the Downsizing teaser below. Read More »
In the future, Matt Damon can become five-inches tall thanks to Norwegian scientists. That’s the premise of Alexander Payne‘s (Nebraska) next film, Downsizing, in which overpopulation has led to people shrinking themselves to live a “bigger” life in a “bigger” home and help the environment while they’re at it. After Sideways, Payne wrote the script with Jim Taylor, but due to its ambition and required visual effects shots, it took a long time to get made. According to Payne, though, it got made at the right time.
Below, check out the Downsizing first look.

Back in the spring, while Saturday Night Live was still in the middle of its 42nd season, Alec Baldwin indicated that he might not keep playing Donald Trump much longer on the late night sketch series. Though his portrayal of the unqualified President of the United States of America resulted in some of the most consistently high ratings SNL had received in recent years, Baldwin said:
“I think the maliciousness of this White House has people very worried, which is why I might not do it much longer, by the way, that whole impersonation. I don’t know how much more people can take it.”
Because the reality of any given situation at the White House can be too hard to swallow and thus difficult to effectively parody, the actor was right to question whether it was something he could viably keep doing. But it turns out he either feels a responsibility to keep pissing off reality-show-host-in-chief, or he’s getting paid handsomely to keep playing the role, because we’ll keep seeing Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live this fall.
