ava trailer

If you ever wanted to see Jessica Chastain beat the crap out of Colin Farrell and get yelled at by John Malkovich, today is your lucky day. In Ava, Chastain plays a deadly assassin who has to fight for her own survival when a job goes wrong. This isn’t exactly ground-breaking in terms of plotting, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all have fun watching Jessica Chastain pummel people who get in her way. Watch the Ava trailer below.

Space Force Review

The last time actor Steve Carell and writer/producer Greg Daniels teamed up, it resulted in The Office on NBC, a show that initially stumbled in the shadow of its British predecessor but became one of the greatest television comedies of the 21st century.  Now Carell and Daniels have ventured out on their own with Space Force, an original workplace comedy coming to Netflix that takes a cue from the real life creation of a space warfare branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. Unfortunately, while the series literally shoots for the moon, it has a hard time staying focused in a number of ways, from a fluctuating, inconsistent comedic tone to meandering, insignificant sideplots. It’s not a complete mess, but it certainly doesn’t feel ready for launch. Read More »

the new pope trailer new

It’s Pope Season! Not only do we have The Two Popes arriving on Netflix this month, we also have The New Pope headed to HBO a month later. That’s enough popes for everyone, I think. The New Pope is the second season of The Young Pope, in which Jude Law wore sunglasess, smoked cigarettes, and also became the leader of the Catholic Church. This new season has a new pope (thus the title), played by John Malkovich. But Law’s pope isn’t out of the picture just yet. Watch The New Pope trailer below.

the new pope trailer

You can’t teach a new pope old tricks, and John Malkovich‘s John Paul III is certainly more of a stickler for tradition than Jude Law‘s flashy Pope Pius XIII of Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope. But thankfully, in the follow-up season of the HBO series The New Pope, this successor seems to have just as much of an ego.

“Everyone in the world should know who the pope is,” John Paul III tells his staff. “It’s not vanity; it’s necessity.” But despite enjoying the fruits of his new role, the new pope does harbor a paranoia that that mischievous young pope may wake from his coma after all. Watch The New Pope trailer.

the new pope trailer

HBO’s trailer for The New Pope may not have you losing your religion, but it may just change your avenue of worship. I’m talking of course, about the trailer being mostly comprised of a slow-motion shot of Jude Law, dressed solely in a white Speedo, walking down a beach in front of bikini-clad girls playing volleyball. It’s heavenly. It’s bliss. It’s the next step in the meme-ification of The Young PopePaolo Sorrentino‘s wildly self-aware papal drama. The follow-up season to the acclaimed 2016 limited series, The New Pope introduces Lenny Belardo’s (Law) apparent successor, played by John Malkovich, who is much more buttoned up than his Speedo-clad predecessor. Watch The New Pope trailer below.

velvet buzzsaw trailer

Five years ago we saw how truly weird and dark Jake Gyllenhaal could get when he teamed up with writer-director Dan Gilroy for the twisted 2014 thriller Nightcrawler, which gave a thought-provoking condemnation of the ambulance-chasing tabloid industry.

Now, Gyllenhaal, Gilroy, and Nightcrawler co-star Rene Russo reunite for what looks to be a darkly satirical indictment of yet another niche field: the contemporary art world. Velvet Buzzsaw is a horror-thriller starring Gyllenhaal as a pretentious art critic who soon becomes targeted by killer art pieces. Yes, you read that right. See the first Velvet Buzzsaw trailer below.

The ABC Murders Trailer

Kenneth Branagh brought Agatha Christie’s iconic detective Hercule Poirot to life on the big screen again in a new adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express last year, and he had an eye towards creating an Agatha Christie universe. But in 2019, another Agatha Christie adaptation puts John Malkovich in the detective’s shoes, this time for a series based on the classic novel The ABC Murders, and the first trailer has just arrived.

bird box early buzz

Netflix recently made the unprecedented decision to release three of its Oscar contender films in theaters before they hit streaming. Two of which were expected — Alfonso Cuaron’s Oscar frontrunner Roma, the Coen Brothers’ anthology Western The Ballad of Buster Scruggs — but the third was something of a question mark: Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock and directed by Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier (The Night Manager). Right off the bat, Bird Box doesn’t seem like an Oscar movie, but the theatrical release of the film kind of makes sense: it stars an Oscar winner, is directed by a foreign film Oscar winner, and is a apocalyptic horror film that recalls this year’s smash hit, A Quiet Place.

But is the Bird Box early buzz actually good? Here is what critics who saw the film at its world premiere at the AFI Film Fest have to say about the film.

Peter Berg directing Patriots Day

Director Peter Berg is not one for wasting time. He says as much, but it’s also evident when you’re on the set of one of his movies, speaking with an actor he’s worked with, or talking to the man himself. Look no further than his filmography the last few years to see the borderline light-speed pace at which he works. He’s made four movies in the last two years, including his latest pic, Mile 22. Nobody could ever call Peter Berg lazy, that’s for certain.

His newest and fourth collaboration with Mark Wahlberg is a significantly lighter film than their past work. It’s Berg, who made a remarkable directorial debut with The Rundown, returning to straight-up action movies. The Kingdom director brings his eye for fast-paced, practical, and point-of-view-driven action to his new lean and mean action movie. Recently, Berg told us about filming Mile 22‘s action, his respect for Wahlberg’s work ethic, when we’ll see his Rihanna documentary, and more.
