Escape at Dannemora trailer

In 2015, two men broke out of a prison in upstate New York. They were helped by an employee who was having affairs with both of them, and a 20-day manhunt captured the nation’s imagination. Now, the incredible true story is getting the limited series treatment at Showtime with some heavy hitters on board to star. Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) plays the prison employee at the center of the controversy, Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) plays one of the convicts, and Benicio Del Toro (Sicario) plays the mastermind of the prison break. And Ben Stiller (yes, that Ben Stiller) is directing.

Check out the Escape at Dannemora trailer below.

Did you remember to send a card to your parents for The Day of the Soldado? Did you take advantage of Amazon’s Day of the Soldado Cyber Monday Sale? I sure hope so, because Sicario: The Day of the Soldado has come and gone. And now we have to talk about it. For reasons beyond mortal comprehension, someone, somewhere, said, “What if we made a sequel to 2015’s Sicario, but got rid of all the good stuff?”

sicario day of the soldado early buzz

The announcement of a Sicario sequel was met with some raised eyebrows. How do you follow up Denis Villeneuve‘s powerful, gripping drama about the escalating war on drugs – and do so without the return of Villeneuve, cinematographer Roger Deakins, or star Emily Blunt? Early marketing for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was a bit confused as well, with some trailers suggesting that it was a morally gray prestige thriller in the vein of the first film while others showcased a bombastic action movie.

Fans were understandably skeptical about the sequel directed by Stefano Sollima, but the Sicario Day of the Soldado early buzz proves that their worries were unfounded. Here are what critics have to say about the new movie.

Grandmaster Collector

Thor: Ragnarok bestowed many gifts upon the world: Cate Blanchett vamping it up as a villain, that priceless “get help” gag, the hilarity of Korg, and a Chris Hemsworth superhero performance that finally capitalizes on his comedic talents. But one of my personal favorite contributions was The Grandmaster, played by the always-entertaining Jeff Goldblum. The character’s fate is left hanging in the balance when the film comes to a close, but if Goldblum has his way, he’d love to see a Grandmaster Collector spin-off that teams him with Benicio del Toro‘s wonderfully weird character from Guardians of the Galaxy.

sicario 2 soldado trailer

Sicario was one of 2015’s best films, a tense thriller that turned a ruthless and critical eye at the drug war between the United States and Mexico, grounded by Emily Blunt’s idealistic young FBI agent, Kate Macy. Sicario 2: Soldado moves to tell a continuation of that story, but without the defining features that made Sicario so great. But hey, at least Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro are back.

The first trailer for the Sicario sequel, clunkily titled Sicario 2: Soldado, reintroduces Brolin’s compromised FBI agent Matt Graver and his wary ally Alejandro, the revenge-driven former cartel member, as they are tasked with kidnapping a kingpin’s daughter.
