Joel Kinnaman has nailed the tortured ex-military man niche, and he brings it to a new Aviron Pictures crime thriller co-starring Rosamund Pike, Clive Owen, and Common. Kinnaman plays the titular character in The Informer, a crime thriller based on the book Three Seconds by Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström, which follows one man caught in the crosshairs of a battle between the mob, the NYPD, and the FBI as he seeks to escape to save his family. Watch the first The Informer trailer below.

all about nina review

Movies about comedians are usually a gamble. Often they’re too self-indulgent, or mawkish, or overly mean-spirited. Rarely do they balance the high drama of comedians’ inherent insecurities and the, you know, comedy. But the few that do succeed because they strike a personal chord — one that mirrors the self-deprecating performance and painfully real revelations of a good stand-up set.

All About Nina is as personal as you can get. Written and directed by Eva VivesAll About Nina is a searing, semi-autobiographical portrait of a troubled young woman trying to make her big break in the comedy scene. Played with an intoxicating swagger by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Nina is an abrasive stand-up comedian who never shies away from provoking people on and off-stage, but hides a dark past of her own.

Smallfoot Trailer

Hello, everyone. I’d like to introduce you to the family film Smallfoot. It’s about a Yeti who goes on a quest to discover if humans really exist. Sounds cute, right? Also, it stars Channing Tatum. But don’t get too excited: you won’t be seeing his abs and dancing skills. Because this film is animated. Sorry, you’ll just have to use your imagination. The Smallfoot trailer is below.

Black Samurai TV show

Starz isn’t on the same level as a powerhouse premium service like HBO, but they’re still one of the big players in that space, and they’ve recently made waves by catering to underserved audiences with shows like Power and Outlander (not to mention the splash they made this year with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods). Now they’re looking to get into the blaxploitation genre with a TV adaptation of Black Samuari, and they’ve found the perfect person to star: Common, who kicked some serious ass in John Wick: Chapter 2.

‘John Wick 3’: Everything We Know So Far

John Wick 2 Shoot Date

Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014. I went into John Wick: Chapter 2 expecting to be amazed with the fight scenes (which I was), but I has not anticipated that I would walk out of the theater talking about the worldbuilding of this new film. John Wick 3 is already in development, and I’m very excited to see more chapters in this world.

Lets take a look at what may await us in John Wick: Chapter 3, pieced together from interview comments from director Chad Stahelski, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, actor Keanu Reeves, and more.

Derek Kolstad interview

In 2012, screenwriter Derek Kolstad was working on a spec script called Scorn. Soon after he finished it, three offers came in. Kolstad took the lowest offer from Thunder Road Pictures because they were adamant about making the movie as soon as possible. Within a few months, the title was changed to John Wick and Keanu Reeves was onboard to star as the unstoppable dog-friendly assassin.

It was Reeves, by the way, whose idea it was to call the movie John Wick.

Two and a half years later, we’re getting its sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2, which has a slightly different tone and pace but is still pure John Wick. It’s bigger, more stylish, and more personal. There’s still a dilemma for the titular character that isn’t half-baked. Can a guy like that ever truly leave behind his past? It’s a question Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski take the time to explore in the visual splendor of John Wick: Chapter 2.

At the press day for the sequel, Kolstad discussed world building, his favorite action movies, writing for Keanu Reeves, and more with us. Below, check out our Derek Kolstad interview.

Chad Stahelski interview

John Wick: Chapter 2 isn’t a sequel that delivers more of the same. There are familiarities, but it’s more like the same engine in a slightly bigger, more stylish, and more aggressive car. The simplicity of the first movie remains, but the titular character finds himself in a larger and more dangerous world this time. The world, which takes a few ideas from Arthurian mythology, grows along with John Wick in the sequel.

Director Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first movie with the uncredited David Leitch (Deadpool 2), shows audiences a different side of the character, while also delivering on the quality action sequences audiences now expect from a John Wick film. The director ups the stakes and increases the scale in the sequel without ever abandoning the titular character’s arc during all the beautifully orchestrated madness.

We recently spoke with the 87eleven co-founder at the press day for the sequel. We discussed finding the right story to tell, the film’s opening and closing action scenes, the influence of Buster Keaton, workshopping scenes with Keanu Reeves, and more with the filmmaker. Below, read our Chad Stahelski interview.

John Wick: Chapter 2 images

We’re counting the days until John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns. Right now, we only have 25 days to go, or less than 600 hours, until we get to see the character back in action.

We’ve already seen a decent amount from the marketing for the sequel, but if you want to see more of John Wick before the movie opens in theaters, then check out some new John Wick: Chapter 2 images below.
