Peter Berg’s Patriots Day earned solid reviews when it hit theaters last year, but the way that movie invented a single character who appeared at all of the major turning points of the 2013 Boston bombing struck me as disingenuous.
Now, director David Gordon Green is here with Stronger, a film that tells the true story of one of the bombing’s survivors, Jeff Bauman, played here by Jake Gyllenhaal. To me, this looks like a much better way of approaching the topic, and it looks like an emotional, inspiring story about overcoming adversity and personifying the term “Boston Strong.” Check out the first Stronger trailer below.

For a lot of actors, starring in an intense romantic drama set in the Arctic would seem like hard work. For Tatiana Maslany, it probably feels like a vacation since she gets to play just the one character. Two Lovers and a Bear stars the Orphan Black actress as one of the lovers and Dane DeHaan as the other. There is an actual, literal bear in this movie, too, but this might be one of those situations where the real bear is their troubled past or something like that.
Two Lovers and a Bear is the new movie by Kim Nguyen, the Canadian director of War Witch. Check out the Two Lovers and a Bear trailer after the jump. Read More »

After a couple of cryptic teasers, BBC America’s Orphan Black has finally served up a proper trailer for season 4. Tatiana Maslany, Tatiana Maslany, and Tatiana Maslany return to lead the sci-fi drama, which also stars Tatiana Maslany, Tatiana Maslany, Tatiana Maslany, and Tatiana Maslany.

BBC America’s Orphan Black has quite the sprawling cast. There’s Sarah and her countless clone sisters, each of whom brings her own entourage of supporting characters; there are various antagonists and allies who weave in and out of the show; and as of this past season, there’s even a whole line of boy clones with all the extra baggage that entails. But the first Orphan Black Season 4 keeps the focus very, very tight, zeroing in on just one character with a curious accessory. Watch the first Orphan Black Season 4 teaser after the jump.
