The Suicide Squad Cast

For months now, we’ve been slowly hearing about who would be part of the ensemble cast of The Suicide Squad. We don’t know if James Gunn‘s movie is a sequel or a reboot or something in between, but now we officially have the full roster for the cast straight from the director himself. Get the full list of The Suicide Squad cast below. Read More »

Fast Color, the grounded superhero indie movie that starred Gugu Mbatha-Raw and hit theaters earlier this year, is getting its own TV series. Jordan Horowitz (the producer who revealed on stage that Moonlight actually beat La La Land at the Oscars) co-wrote the movie with director Julia Hart, and they’re both on board to return in those capacities for this show, which is in the works at Amazon Prime Video.

the suicide squad cast

Despite reports that James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad is going to be a “total reboot” of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, that seems less and less likely to be the case. Viola Davis, who played the ruthless government agent Amanda Waller in the 2016 comic book movie, will be back in The Suicide Squad, joining Jai Courtney in reprising their roles from the first movie.

Troop Zero review

From its opening shot that travels from the Big Dipper all the way down to the small town of Wiggly, Georgia in 1977, Troop Zero, a Southern-fried comedy from female co-directors Bert & Bertie, seems to constantly walk the line of being too precocious and cute for its own good. But even though its jokes don’t always land, the film is still a pleasant, largely charming diversion and further proof that Viola Davis can elevate any movie she’s in. Read More »

The Steve McQueen heist flick is now available on VOD, and will be hitting Blu-ray early next month, giving you the perfect opportunity to check it out if you missed it in theaters.

(Welcome to Role Call, where we examine two performances from an actor – their first defining role and their most recent/last – to get a sense of who they are.)

What does it mean to be the best actor of a generation? And is it possible that kind of talent can remain hidden for decades?

Those are the questions we need to consider when contemplating Viola Davis‘ explosive, peerless ability to embody another person from root to tip, from birth to death, to their very soul.

And if there were any doubt that she was one of the world’s best at what she does, consider the oldest rule in the book: game recognizes game. That’s why Meryl Streep shouted, “My God, somebody give her a movie!” during her 2009 SAG acceptance speech for Doubt and said, “She is arguably the most immediate, responsive artist I have ever worked with,” when presenting Davis with her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Game recognizes game.

widows featurette

“We’re after the truth. I don’t go to a location with a stencil. I adapt to the environment,” reads a quote by director Steve McQueen at the beginning of the newest Widows featurette about the film’s Chicago location. The gritty heist thriller, penned by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, is set in the Windy City, and couldn’t take place anywhere else. The featurette dives into why that is, and how Chicago helped shape the highly anticipated movie.
