Playing with Fire Trailer

John Cena has been on the rise as an actor ever since he showed a completely different side to his talents with a supporting role in Amy Schumer’s romantic comedy Trainwreck. Since then, he led the animated film Ferdinand, starred in the surprisingly great Blockers, tracked down Transformers in Bumblebee, and he’s joining the squad in Fast and Furious 9. But not all of his choices are going to be winners, as evidenced by the trailer for his next movie.

Playing with Fire is a new family comedy that finds John Cena playing a firefighter who takes a trio of kids under his wing after rescuing them from a fire. For some reason, he’s legally bound to take care of these kids until their parents get back from…somewhere. It doesn’t matter, because this looks absolutely atrocious. Read More »

Driven trailer

Hollywood suddenly seems interested in John DeLorean, the charismatic creator of the DeLorean Motor Company and the car that became iconic after appearing in Back to the Future. Earlier this year we saw the release of Framing John DeLorean, a blend of fact and fiction that cast Alec Baldwin in the lead role. Now we have a trailer for Driven, which puts actor Lee Pace in the shoes of the infamous auto magnate. But this isn’t a traditional biopic – it’s a story of how DeLorean’s career basically came to an end during a drug sting orchestrated by the FBI through DeLorean’s neighbor (Jason Sudeikis). Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Zoey Deutch is poised to be the next movie star. The actress showed signs of potential in the workplace rom-com Set It Up, but in Buffaloed, her natural breezy charisma is put on full blast. With director Tanya Wexler lending the crime dramedy a zippy, irreverent flair, Buffaloed becomes the vehicle for which Deutch can finally show off her chops.

Room 104 season 2

The first season of HBO’s anthology series Room 104 was uneven, but showed a lot of promise. Each episode takes place inside the same motel room, but that’s essentially the only requirement: genres, characters, styles, and tones are all up for grabs depending on the episode’s individual story, and season one served up a varied meal of period pieces, Mormon missionaries, an MMA-style brawl, and a pants-less Santa Claus, just to name a few.

Room 104 season 2 will hit HBO on November 9, 2018, and the full cast and list of writers and directors has been revealed, and things are about to get very interesting behind the door of that motel room.
