It’s been over a year since the first season of Narcos: Mexico debuted, taking us back to the 1980s when the Guadalajara drug cartel was just taking off, making way for a Mexican drug war. Now the Netflix series returns with a second season, and this time, Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) is having some trouble keeping his drug empire under control. Making this even more difficult is the Americans in pursuit, including Scoot McNairy as DEA agent Walt Breslin, who was revealed to be the narrator of season one. Watch the Narcos: Mexico season 2 trailer below to see how the drug war is escalating. Read More »
It was only a few days ago when Netflix announced that Narcos: Mexico was renewed for a second season, but a new report says the show is already filming in Mexico City – and its cast has been officially announced. Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will return to reprise his role of a cartel boss, and Scoot McNairy (Argo) is coming back in a larger role after being teased at the end of the newest season.

Jeff Nichols‘ very first music video is both new and familiar for the filmmaker. The director behind Mud, Take Shelter, and Loving reunited with a slew of his frequent collaborators, including actor Michael Shannon and cinematographer Adam Stone, to create a music video/short film for Lucero’s new album, “Among the Ghosts.” It isn’t Nichols’ first collaboration with his brother (and Lucero frontman) Ben Nichols, but him directing a short based on a Lucero song was always an inevitability.
The song “The Long Way Back Home,” which is about a criminal on the run, immediately struck a chord with Nichols. It’s not the first time the Mud director has shown a criminal fleeing the law, or told a story about bad blood between brothers. In Long Way Back Home, a man (Shannon) searches for his two brothers (played by Garret Hedlund and Scott McNairy) in a story reminiscent of At Close Range and Nichols’ debut film, Shotgun Stories.
We recently spoke with the director at great length about the short film, his career, and what’s next for him. In part one of our three-part Jeff Nichols interview, you can read what he had to say about the making of Long Way Back Home.

The third season of HBO’s True Detective has added another solid character actor to its ranks. A new report says that Scoot McNairy, a modern “that guy” who you’ve likely seen in a dozen things over the past few years, has joined Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali, Selma star Carmen Ejogo, and e-cigarette salesman Stephen Dorff for the newest season of the divisive crime drama.

The season 3 premiere of Fargo doesn’t disappoint. After two acclaimed seasons, creator Noah Hawley introduces a new ensemble in an intimate and very contained season 3 premiere. Hawley, who wrote and directed the episode, focuses on a small group at the start: Emmitt and Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor), Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and to a lesser extent, Police Chief Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon).
Long before the premiere even concludes, Hawley establishes all of their personalities and troubles. Like the two previous seasons of Fargo, every one of them is compelling enough to star in their own series. And just like the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film, there remains no such thing as small parts in Fargo.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been doing some good work these past few years not enough people are seeing. The projects he’s been in — Escape Plan, Maggie, and The Last Stand — have problems, but he’s rarely one of them. He gives one of his most natural performances to date in Maggie, but the movie, like some of Schwarzenegger’s other recent projects, was overlooked. Let’s hope that won’t be the case for his new Darren Aronofsky-produced drama/thriller, Aftermath.
Below, watch the Aftermath trailer.

The last time Jamie Foxx got into action mode it was as an electric Smurf in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now it looks like he’s made a potentially better choice to get back into tough guy mode with a new action thriller called Sleepless. This one appears to be full of double crossing since it features Foxx playing an undercover detective named Vincent Downs, posing as a corrupt cop, who gets the raw end of a bad deal when his son is kidnapped by one of the gangsters (Scoot McNairy) Downs has been working with.
