It’s been well over a century since Mark Twain first released Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn into the world of American literature, but their youthful spirit rages on in the first trailer for Band of Robbers. Written and directed by Adam and Aaron Nee, the indie film reimagines the classic all-American rascals as grown-up men in the modern day.
Huck (Kyle Gallner), fresh out of prison, is trying to go straight, but Tom (Adam Nee), now a crooked cop, drags him into a plot to find the treasure that eluded them in childhood. Other classic characters like Injun Joe (Stephen Lang) and Becky Thatcher (Supergirl‘s Melissa Benoist) also appear. Watch the Band of Robbers trailer after the jump. Read More »
The last time Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell teamed up, it resulted in the mostly satisfying buddy cop comedy The Other Guys. But this time the two are going head to head in order to win over the love of Linda Cardellini‘s kids.
Daddy’s Home sees Ferrell as the new husband in a family with two kids, eager to win them over as their step-dad. But out of nowhere, their badass biological father (Wahlberg) shows up. And in the new Daddy’s Home trailer, he’s not pulling any punches when it comes to making sure his kids remember who their real father is. But Ferrell doesn’t take it lying down, and the two end up in a good old-fashioned dad-off. There’s no way this will have any impact on the children’s emotional development at all. Read More »
We all know that Hugh Jackman can’t be Wolverine in the X-Men franchise forever, and we’ve heard that the Australian actor is done with the role that made him a star after he completes a starring turn in the third Wolverine film in 2017. But don’t worry, because he’s also slated to pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse and may have a cameo in Deadpool.
Still, someone has to pick up the claws and replace Jackman eventually. So as part of his stream of Comic-Con themed episodes this week, being shot in San Diego, Conan revealed some of the auditions to play Wolverine with names like Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex,) Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and more in the running.
