A Quiet Place Mondo poster

People weren’t expecting much from A Quiet Place when it was first announced, but John Krasinski‘s high concept horror film took Hollywood by storm when it debuted earlier this year.

The Office Jack Ryan Trailer Mash-Up

One of the greatest friendly rivalries in the history of television is undoubtedly that of Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), two of the top salespeople from the Dunder-Mifflin Paper Company followed closely in the mockumentary series The Office. However, that rivalry is about to be taken to a new level.

Mixing footage from Amazon’s Jack Ryan series with The Office makes for a trailer mash-up that is better than it has any right to be. Watch below! Read More »

Amazon hopes to strike streaming gold with Jack Ryan, their new espionage thriller based on the work of Tom Clancy. Does this Jack Ryan succeed where recent attempts like The Sum of All Fears and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit failed?
