Do you remember Triple Frontier? The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Zero Dark Thirty director Katherine Bigelow. Then it jumped to Netflix with Margin Call director J.C. Chandor at the helm, co-writing the script with Mark Boal, but it had a hard time holding onto a cast. Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg were both slated to lead the movie, and then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum were part of the cast before they all fell away.
Odds be damned, Triple Frontier finally made it in front of cameras. It still has an impressive cast, with Ben Affleck leading a team of Special Forces operatives played by Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal, and the first trailer makes it look like one of the best Netflix original movies yet.

Right now we’re in a bit of a dead zone for theatrical release,s with most movies released this month being neither good enough for a summer blockbuster release or hopeful enough for a debut during awards season. But plenty more of the latter movies are just around the corner, and Netflix has just debuted the first teaser trailer for what could turn out to be a major contender for Academy Awards.
Mudbound is an adaptation of Hillary Jordan’s prize-winning 2008 novel of the same name, which tells the story of two families both at odds and tied together while struggling to get by in the racially divided Deep South during World War II. The film features an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Carey Mulligan, Rob Morgan, Mary J. Blige, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell and Jonathan Banks, all turning in award worthy performances. Get a look at the movie with the Mudbound trailer below. Read More »
TRON 3, which had the working title TRON: Ascension, isn’t dead, according to director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion).

Any movie should consider itself lucky to have an ensemble as good as the one anchoring Mudbound, which includes Jason Mitchell, Garrett Hedlund, and, most unexpectedly, Mary J. Blige. Directed by Dee Rees (whose debut feature Pariah was a breakout favorite at Sundance 2011), the drama follows two families — one black, one white — living on the same farm in the Mississippi Delta around the time of World War II.
The white McAllans own the property, despite the fact that household head Henry (Jason Clarke) is a Memphis gentleman who knows little about the land, and seemingly moved his family to the country on a whim. The Jacksons, on the other hand, have worked these acres for generations, for one white owner after another. Both clans are forever changed when World War II hits, and then again when the war ends and brings their loved ones back home. Read More »

It doesn’t sound like any number of clapping hands will save Joe Wright‘s latest adaptation of Pan from being a huge failure for Warner Bros. Pictures, after a dismal performance at the box office this past weekend.
The adaptation of J.M. Barrie‘s classic fairy tale cost about $150 million to make, and that’s not including the hefty marketing costs. However, when Pan hit theaters this weekend, it opened at #3 with just over $15 million in the United States and only around $25 million from 54 international markets. It’s safe to say the Pan box office is a disaster. So what does this mean for the studio? Read More »
