IMAX Ad Astra Trailer

Even though The Walt Disney Company seems to be mostly disappointed with the movies they picked up for release this year from 20th Century Fox, there’s one that seems like it might really have the goods: the mysterious sci-fi drama Ad Astra.

Directed by James Gray (We Own the Night, The Immigrant), Ad Astra follows astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) who is sent on a mission to find his missing father (Tommy Lee Jones). Up until now we didn’t know why it was necessary to track down a man who is believed to be lost somewhere in the outer solar system, but a new IMAX Ad Astra trailer lays out the plot a little more clearly, and it also shows off some stunning visuals that make it mandatory to see this on the biggest screen possible.

Ad Astra Trailer

When a peculiar cataclysmic event creates chaos on Earth, astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) is tasked with trying to figure out what went wrong. That’s the set-up for the new movie Ad Astra, in which NASA and the military thinks this Earth-shattering event is somehow tied to a secret mission that Roy’s father (Tommy Lee Jones) embarked on 20 years ago. What follows is a psychological mystery that looks like it will warp our minds and give us a sci-fi drama on par with the likes of Arrival and Interstellar. Watch a new Ad Astra trailer below to see for yourself. Read More »

Tommy Lee Jones Coffee Commercials

All my life, I was never a coffee-drinker. I envied the coffee-drinkers. They always seemed so bright and alert. But it was not until I came to Japan and started seeing the weather-beaten face of Tommy Lee Jones everywhere that I suddenly found myself, rather uncharacteristically, having the compulsion to drink coffee every day. Specifically: Boss Coffee.

In Japan, canned coffee is ubiquitous and there are vending machines on seemingly every street corner, so it is fairly common to see ads with Jones’ face plastered across them. This is because Jones is known here for reasons having less to do with his film career and more to do with his appearance as a character called “Alien Jones” in a series of Boss Coffee commercials.

In 2011, a source in Japanese television production supplied The Hollywood Reporter with the information that the actor makes a million dollars for every six-month run of Boss Coffee ads. Talk about U.S. stars cashing in overseas. It’s sort of the real-life version of Bill Murray’s Lost in Translation character filming that commercial where he says, “For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.” Read More »

Jim Carrey Tommy Lee Jones Story

Tommy Lee Jones is not a big fan of Jim Carrey. The two actors worked together on Joel Schumacher’s neon-lit live-action cartoon Batman Forever, and ever since then, Carrey has been telling a now-famous story about how Jones simply could not stand him. You may have heard this story before, but now you can see the story come to life as Jim Carrey acts it out! Watch Jim Carrey’s Tommy Lee Jones story below.

Just Getting Started trailer 2

Director Ron Shelton built his career making sports movies like Bull DurhamWhite Men Can’t Jump, Tin Cup, and Play It To The Bone, but now his most recent feature was 2003’s Hollywood Homicide, a quasi-buddy comedy that featured the main characters butting heads but ultimately working together to achieve a goal. Now, 14 years later, he’s back with Just Getting Started, yet another film in which the leads squabble and eventually join forces. But this time, the gimmick is that he’s directing old guys: Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones star in this goofy-looking comedy, and you can watch the new trailer right here.
