What happens when you spend four years of high school studying hard to make sure you get into a great college, only for your senior year to come to an end with the realization that everyone who spent all of high school partying also got into great colleges?
That’s the set-up of Booksmart, a new raunchy comedy which stars Kaitlyn Dever (Justified) and Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird). It marks the directorial debut of actress Olivia Wilde, and from all of the positive buzz this is getting from its premiere at this year’s South By Southwest, it seems like we might have a new classic on our hands. Check out the red-band trailer below. Read More »
When all the craziness of blockbuster summer has come to an end, it’ll be time to catch our breath with some quieter movies in fall. One of those movies is coming from This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman, and it looks like quite the charming romance that will make for a good date movie when the leaves start to turn.
Life Itself follows Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde as a couple who started dating in college and go on to get married, start a family and live through all the trials and tribulations of life and everything it has to offer. A new trailer has just arrived, and the movie certainly has flares of Fogelman’s previous big screen effort Crazy, Stupid, Love, but it seems to have a little more drama instead of comedy this time around.

Dan Fogelman has been making audiences cry all the time with his NBC family drama series This Is Us. Now he’s bringing that same level of tearjerking to the big screen with his sophomore directing effort.
Life Itself (not to be confused with the Roger Ebert documentary of the same name) stars Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Olivia Wilde (TRON Legacy) in a multi-generational love story that spans decades, not unlike This Is Us. But this one even spans across the globe with every story we see connected by a single event. And if the Life Itself trailer that debuted during the most recent episode of the aforementioned Emmy-nominated show is any indicator, Dan Fogelman will likely yank tears straight from your face.

After spending the first portion of her career acting in front of the camera, Olivia Wilde is shifting gears. She was bitten by the producing bug back in 2010, and has since shepherded movies like 2013’s Drinking Buddies (which features one of her best performances to date) and 2015’s Meadowland into existence. Now Wilde is making her feature directorial debut with Booksmart, which will star Kaitlyn Dever (Short Term 12) and Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird) as a pair of straight-laced high schoolers who decide to party like crazy before they graduate.

TRON 3, which had the working title TRON: Ascension, isn’t dead, according to director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion). Every once in a while somebody involved in TRON 3 says never say never, but two years ago was when Disney pulled the plug on the project. During a recent Q & A for TRON: Legacy, Kosinski said the sequel is in a “cryogenic freeze” in addition to sharing some new plot details.
Below, learn more about the Tron 3 plot.

It’s almost impossible to imagine anyone else but Margot Robbie in the role of Naomi Lapaglia in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street, but Olivia Wilde may have been an interesting alternate choice. However, the Tron: Legacy actress was apparently turned down for the part. Why? Because at 28, she was deemed “too old for the role.” Learn the whole story, after the jump.

HBO is airing a couple of new shows next year worth getting incredibly excited about: a remake of Michael Crichton‘s 1973 sci-fi film, Westworld, and Vinyl. The latter is created by Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire) and produced by Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas) and Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones, duh). The last time Winter and Scorsese collaborated we got the unrelentingly giddy The Wolf of Wall Street, so these two working together again is one of the many, many reasons to watch Vinyl.
After the jump, watch the new Vinyl trail.

“Sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll” isn’t just an expression when it comes to HBO’s Vinyl — they’re literally what the show is about. Set at the dawn of punk, hip-hop, and disco in 1970s New York, the drama stars Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record label president trying to save his company without destroying everyone around him.
Vinyl reunites the Boardwalk Empire executive producer of Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter. Mick Jagger is along for the ride as well, because if you’re making a drama about the 1970s music scene of course you want Mick Jagger involved. Watch the Vinyl trailer after the jump. Read More »
