Delroy Lindo gives one of the year’s best performances in Da 5 Bloods, so it’s only fitting that Netflix has decided to push for a Best Actor Oscar nomination. The streaming service could’ve hedged their bets and tried to campaign Lindo for Best Supporting Actor, but will instead save that for the rest of the film’s cast: Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., and the late Chadwick Boseman.

Like a blast of dynamite, like a punch to the gut, here comes Da 5 Bloods, the new Spike Lee Joint that arrives during a month when protests against violence aimed at Black lives continue to spread throughout the country. Lee made his film before the current climate, but in many ways, it feels almost prescient as it deals with African-Americans fighting for rights they’ve been denied for centuries. It’s not a preachy film, but it is underscored with the undeniable acknowledgment of that fight. “We been dying for this country from the very get, hoping one day they’d give us our rightful place,” says a character played by Chadwick Boseman. “All they give us is a foot up our ass.”

First ABC decided they wanted an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, and then they decided they didn’t, and then they felt like they weren’t sure, and then, way back in August, they finally gave Marvel’s Most Wanted an official pilot order. Now some more details have been revealed about the new series featuring Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), and it suggests some interesting developments up ahead for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The new Point Break trailer reveals a wrinkle in the film’s plot: the criminals being tracked by young FBI agent Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) may be using a search for enlightenment to as an excuse for their Robin Hood-like crimes. So all the extreme sports stuff in this new movie, which takes the scope of the action way beyond surfing (but also includes insane surfing) is part of a grand quest. Whether or not skateboarding off the bow of a yacht (as seen above) is part of that, I’m not sure.
Point Break also stars Édgar Ramírez as the new version of Bodhi, and also features Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo. Check out the new trailer below. Read More »

Here’s your first Point Break remake trailer, showing off the new version of the 1991 movie that starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. Point Break now features much more than surfing. Indeed, Warner Bros. trumpets that this film has “the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture,” with stunts “performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.”
But wait! There are actors in the film, too. Édgar Ramírez (Zero Dark Thirty, Carlos) stars as the daredevil criminal Bodhi, while Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is young FBI agent Johnny Utah. Ray Winstone (Noah), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo (Gone in Sixty Seconds) are in the film, too. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
I don’t know what to make of the trailer for The Big Bang. The way this thing is cut, it looks like a weird blend of neo noir, Frank Miller and early Guy Ritchie. Is that good, or bad? I really don’t know. What I do know is that Sam Elliott and William Fichtner have supporting roles, and I’ll watch them in almost anything. Check out the trailer after the break. Read More »
