russell crowe thriller

Russell Crowe has had his brush with horror with the critical and commercial catastrophe that was The Mummy (RIP Dark Universe), and is now teaming up with Scream writer and producer Kevin Williamson to star in a very meta supernatural thriller. Crowe will star in a new movie as a troubled actor who begins to experience real-life horrors while shooting a horror film — a fun meta twist on the genre that appropriately comes from the screenwriter that created one of the most meta horror franchises ever.

Boy Erased Trailer

Even though it’s 2018, there are still religious zealots out there who believe it is their duty to help so-called sinful homosexuals pray their gay away. In fact, according to a new trailer for the harrowing drama Boy Erased, there are currently 77,000 people being held in conversion therapy centers by religious figures forcing people to question their identity and bury who they really are. And as you can see from this new trailer, these places are not welcoming or helpful in the least. Read More »

Writer/director Joel Edgerton’s Boy Erased starts off resembling a prison drama. Lucas Hedges’ Jared Eamons shows up to Love in Action, a conversion therapy program designed to “cure” gay people, and must surrender his possessions. An orderly tells him they will call random numbers in his cell phone during the day. In addition, the original stories in his notebook might be subject to confiscation if they reflect any of the desires that the center attempts to purge.

Even as imposing as Love in Action is, the real prison in Boy Erased is Jared’s own thoughts. In a remarkably subdued performance, Hedges shows that his character’s mind, racked with guilt and shame his community has told him to feel, will be the site of the most important reckoning in the film. Jared is uncertain in how to navigate the cruelness of conversion therapy, either by giving in or resisting full stop. The hesitancy in responding externally plunges him deeper into his own mind and memory.

Dundee Trailer

Even though Dundee has been confirmed to be nothing more than a Super Bowl commercial stunt promoting Australian tourism, that doesn’t mean we’re not interested in seeing every bit of footage shot for this fake movie starring Danny McBride as the estranged American son of the one and only Crocodile Dundee.

Bad Times at the El Royale cast

It’s been almost six years since filmmaker Drew Goddard made his directorial debut with the unexpectedly brilliant horror comedy The Cabin in the Woods, and while he’s worked consistently since then as a writer, he has yet to step behind the camera to direct another feature film. That changes this year with Bad Times at the El Royale, a mysterious thriller that stars Chris Hemsworth and Jeff Bridges.

As if that cast weren’t already intriguing enough, Goddard has just added two more top notch actors to his new film’s roster. Learn about the newest additions to the Bad Times at the El Royale cast below.

master and commander sequel
Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
is one of the best films of the 21st century, but not a lot of people saw it. Which is a shame, because the film was an adaptation based on Patrick O’Brian‘s 20-novel Aubrey-Maturin series, meaning it was ripe to launch an entire series of films. Due to shoddy box office, those follow-up films never came to pass, but now Master and Commander star Russell Crowe has given fans of the film hope. While this seems to be more wishful thinking than a sure thing, any news of a possible Master and Commander sequel is worth paying attention to.
