The Boys Season 2 Trailer

The Boys are returning to Amazon Prime this fall, but they’re not going to have an easy go of it from the looks of the trailer for the second season. Even though Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) returns after disappearing at the end of the first season finale, he and his teammates, including Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), have pissed off the powerful superheroes that the world blindly loves. That means they’re fugitives from the law, and they’ll be threatened at every turn. Watch The Boys season 2 trailer below. Read More »

Final The Boys Trailer

In a few days, Amazon will bring a new group of superheroes to streaming, except this crew of superpowered individuals don’t seem anything like good guys. In fact, Amazon’s The Boys may be bringing us the most morally questionable group of superheroes since the Watchmen. Irresponsible with their powers, driven by greed and fame, and generally too cocky for their own good, these superheroes need to be put in their place. That’s exactly what Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the titular group of vigilantes aim to do, and their endeavor gets rather bloody, as you can see in the final The Boys trailer before the show’s premiere.

Plus One trailer

After a huge boom in the 1990s, the steady stream of Hollywood romantic comedies has trickled down to a slow drip. That scarcity makes each new entry into the genre feel more significant than it may have before, and such is the case with Plus One, a delightful-looking rom-com starring Maya Erskine (Pen15) and Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games) about two friends who agree to be each other’s plus ones during wedding season. Check out the trailer below.

plus one review

Thirty years ago, When Harry Met Sally posed the question: Can men and women really be friends? While it never quite provided an answer, it did prove one satisfying thing — friendship may be forever, but watching friends fall in love is timeless.

Plus One, which follows two jaded college buddies Ben and Alice (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) who make a pact to be each other’s plus ones during a summer of endless weddings, pays appropriate homage to its lauded predecessor, but takes that delightful push-pull dynamic that When Harry Met Sally perfected to another level. Pen15 writers Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer unite with Erskine, the star and co-creator of the acclaimed Hulu series, to make their feature debut with this sharp, raunchy, and altogether winning film that is poised to be the rom-com of the summer.

the boys cast simon pegg

The character of Wee Hughie in Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic The Boys was visually modeled on actor Simon Pegg. This fact lead many fans to hope and pray that the Shaun of the Dead actor would inevitably play the character should The Boys ever be adapted to the big screen. That never came to pass, and now The Boys is an Amazon TV series instead. But here’s a twist! Pegg is in the show after all, but not as Wee Hughie. Instead, he’s playing Hughie’s dad. See? It all worked out in the end.

Ithaca trailer

Throughout the 1990s, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan were the romcom golden couple. They kicked off the decade with Joe Versus the Volcano, reunited for the all-time classic Sleepless in Seattle, and finished up with 1998’s You’ve Got Mail. Now, nearly 20 years later, they’re teaming up again for a very different kind of movie.

Ithaca is Ryan’s directorial debut, and it’s a far cry from the fizzy love stories that were once her bread and butter. The drama stars Alex Neustaedter (USA’s Colony) as a young bicycle messenger coming of age during World War II. Jack Quaid plays his older brother, who’s off fighting the war, and Hanks and Ryan play their parents. Hamish Linklater and Sam Shepard also star. John Mellencamp provided original music. Watch the first Ithaca trailer below.  Read More »
