If you thought All The Money In the World was the only J. Paul Getty-related drama on the horizon, guess again: FX has an entire TV series about the Getty family coming up. The Danny Boyle-directed series, called Trust, features Donald Sutherland in the role of cold-hearted billionaire J. Paul Getty, and the first Trust teaser gives us a look at his sure-to-be-memorable performance.
Ridley Scott’s All The Money In the World made headlines recently when Scott decided to remove scenes involving actor Kevin Spacey and reshoot them with Christopher Plummer. Spacey, and now Plummer, plays J. Paul Getty, an oil tycoon who refused to pay the ransom when his grandson John Paul Getty III was kidnapped. We have yet to see what Plummer’s take on the performance may be, but he apparently has some competition from Donald Sutherland. Sutherland is playing the same role in the FX series Trust, and the first Trust teaser shows us Sutherland’s droll, darkly amusing take on the character. Watch it below. Read More »

As long as people have been making movies, they’ve been telling stories about outlaws returning home, trying to put their dark pasts behind them, and finding their talent for violence coming in handy when bad guys come calling. Nothing about director Jon Cassar‘s Forsaken looks particularly original or unique, but when you’re dealing with a genre as classical as the western, that may not be a bad thing. Sometimes, the same song performed by a fresh band can be mighty pleasing.
The obvious hook here is Kiefer Sutherland and Donald Sutherland playing father and son, but as you can see in the trailer below, the real attraction is the chance to watch an old school western that is seemingly free of pretense.
