The Hitman’s Bodyguard was already a throwback to action comedies of the past with a team-up of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson as an unlikely duo constantly at each other’s throats. But when it comes to the upcoming sequel, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, they’re throwing it back to the 1990s even harder with an old school voiceover in the latest trailer. I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard a movie use a deep, rich trailer voice like this. It’s rather soothing, even if it’s totally cheesy. So hop in a time machine ,and check out the new trailer below. Read More »
Serial killer Jigsaw is long dead but his lust for Rube Goldberg-like torture devices lives on in Spiral: From the Book of Saw, the ninth installment in the seemingly never-ending Saw series. But in many respects, Spiral feels like a sequel in name only.

But those hoping their star power will lend Spiral weight are in for a rude awakening.

Jackson, Denzel Washington, and more.

And the latest additions are absolutely perfect.
Larry David calls out some of “the idiots out there” who aren’t staying home, and by association, putting old old, grumpy guys like the Curb Your Enthusiasm star at risk. Meanwhile, Samuel L.
