Director David Gordon Green sure likes to keep us guessing. After a string of studio comedies, followed by a microbudget indie and a couple of dramas, he’s back on screens this fall with the political satire Our Brand Is Crisis. Sandra Bullock leads the cast as Jane, an American political strategist hired to work with a lagging Bolivian presidential candidate (Joachim de Almeida).
Billy Bob Thornton plays Jane’s professional rival. Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, and the ubiquitous Scoot McNairy also star. Watch the first Our Brand Is Crisis trailer after the jump.

Despite the recent onslaught of information about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there’s still a lot that’s being kept under wraps. We don’t know, for example, whom Scoot McNairy is playing… or do we? A new rumor — well, an old rumor that’s been dusted off, reinforced, and sent back into circulation — may have the answer. More details on the Scoot McNairy Jimmy Olsen theory after the jump. Read More »
If movies have taught us anything, it’s that money drives people mad. Movie after movie depicts people doing terrible things for money. Killing, kidnapping, and worse. Now take that tension between people desperate for money, shove it into a super-confined space, and push the container deep under the ocean. The result is Black Sea.
Directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), Black Sea stars Jude Law as a submarine captain who is let go from his job. Desperate to make a buck, he agrees to lead a rouge mission into the depths where one of Adolf Hitler’s World War II submarines is sitting at the bottom of the ocean, reportedly filled with gold.
Black Sea, which co-stars Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn and David Threlfall, opens January 23. Check out the Black Sea trailer below. Read More »

The title reveals that Batman and Superman are going to fight in their upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But with two heroes like that in the same movie, they film is gonna need some bad guys, too. We already know about the powerful Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) but if Zack Snyder and David Goyer are bringing in additional members of the Justice League (Cyborg, Aquaman, Wonder Woman) you’d think there might be some other villains, right?
According to Latino Review, that’s exactly the case. They reveal three new villains — smaller, but important ones — will be in Zack Snyder’s 2016 sequel. We’ll reveal their identities after the jump. Read More »

Frank is so great. I want to show it to everyone, but right now I’ll settle for sharing a new Frank trailer. The film is easily in my favorites of 2014 so far, and not because it has Michael Fassbender wearing a giant fake head, or because Maggie Gyllenhaal is a deliciously brittle musician, or because Domhnall Gleeson plays a picture-perfect vision of the wannabe artist.
The film is a fave because, as weird as the movie gets, Frank is totally honest, gleefully odd, and unusually perceptive about the process of making music and art. It feels totally right. And, ok, Fassbender’s performance as Frank is stellar, and the rest of the cast rises to his challenge. The Frank US trailer is out now, and you can see it below. Read More »

AMC has released the Halt and Catch Fire pilot episode online for everyone to preview ahead of the series’ June 1st premiere. This might be my most anticipated new television series of the year, a fictionalized dramatic thriller set in the wild west of the early 1980s PC revolution. The show is set during the expansion of the PC market after IBM rose to prominence. The new series stars Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan, Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark, and Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe, who exploit particular aspects of IBM’s design to create their own personal computer. Find out how to watch the Halt and Catch Fire pilot episode after the jump, and we’ve also included the trailer for the new television series.

The title Halt and Catch Fire makes this new AMC show sound like a strange thriller, but it’s really about the expansion of the PC market after IBM rose to prominence. That said, the show does look like a thriller to some extent, as a set of characters — primarily Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan, Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark, and Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe — exploit particular aspects of IBM’s design to create their own personal computer. Check out a Halt and Catch Fire teaser trailer below.
