Three-day weekends are an excuse to be lazy, kick back with a glass of wine (or five), and meander around the home in a constant state of bliss. Then again, that’s the life of a Real Housewife everyday of the week.
For the plebes of the world with a few days off from toil, this Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to catch up on the marathon of shows playing on television, that range from gross (Botched) to fecund (19 Kids and Counting) to a marathon that’s finally coming to an end (The Simpsons).

Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm focuses on J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a floundering sports agent who is in desperate need of a big signing. Late night channel-flipping between a cricket match and Susan Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ brings inspiration (as it so often does) and soon Bernstein is journeying to India to host a talent competition that will determine which would-be cricketers have the best chance at being groomed into baseball players. Returning to America with the contest winners Rinku Singh (Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) in tow, the two prospects soon begin training under unorthodox coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), but have »

Director: Craig Gillespie.
Running Time: 124 minutes.
Synopsis: A twenty-something comedienne’s unplanned pregnancy forces her to confront the realities of independent womanhood for the first time.
Jon Hamm continues an incredibly lingering transition to the big screen with Disney’s American hit Million Dollar Arm, part sports drama, part romance, part fish-out-of-water comedy which combines to make up what is essentially a biographical rags-to-riches tale.
Tracking the story of sports agent Jb Bernstein (Hamm) and an innovative idea which takes him to India (via a path of self-enlightenment and Britain’s Got Talent), we are introduced to his tough-to-like cynic who, whilst residing in a pristine apartment decorated with a flash car on the drive, spends his days dating models, soullessly shunning hellos from Lake Bell’s kooky tenant, Brenda.

The first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ended with quite the twist as Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was shown carving strange symbols into a wall meaning he may have been significantly affected by the alien blood that helped bring him back to the land of the living. The new billboard, which you can see below, shows Coulson with a much more complete drawing. We saw what the unnamed alien blood did to Agent John Garrett (Bill Paxton), what do you guys think it'll do to Coulson? Sound off with your thoughts below!

This new thriller that stars Jake Gyllenhaal looks really freakin' good, and kind of disturbing. The actor seems to have taken his intensity of acting to a new level here, and I don't know if it's just me, but he has a very different and creepy look.
Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom in the story, "an ambitious young man desperate for work." While trying to find his calling in life he discovers the world of L.A. crime journalism. "When Lou learns of a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles his way into the dangerous realm of night crawling, where a police siren wail means a possible windfall, and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Nina, a local TV news veteran, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant."

Ahead of its Toronto International Film Festival screening next month, Open Road Films has dropped a new trailer for Nightcrawler, the upcoming thriller from writer-director Dan Gilroy, which sees Jake Gyllenhaal leading a cast that also includes Rene Russo (Thor 2: The Dark World), Bill Paxton (Twister) and Riz Ahmed (Four Lions); take a look after the official synopsis…
Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.

The Conjuring kicked off with a very effective (and very frightening) scene which featured a doll called Annabelle. In it we saw the sinister doll terrorise two nursing students, and after a pretty vague first teaser for a movie focusing on her, this new trailer sheds some light on what we should expect from the spin-off.
Based on what we see here, director John R. Leonetti (who served as a Dp on The Conjuring) appears to have brought a similar aesthetic to Annabelle, not to mention the same type of scares and tension fraught moments. The cast meanwhile is made up of lesser known actors like Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, and Alfre Woodard.

Jake Gyllenhaal is at his creepiest for Nightcrawler, the upcoming thriller in which he plays a nighttime news reporter trolling for carnage on the streets of Los Angeles. The first trailer debuted a few weeks ago, and now we have an even longer look at the movie. This new trailer gives a better look at Gyllenhaal, who lost a lot of weight for the role, as Lou Bloom, a journalist who becomes unhinged while working the crime circuit. If this movie wasn't on your radar before, it should be. It looks pretty crazy, and Bill Paxton and Rene Russo are costarring. The film will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and be released on Oct. 31. Check out the first trailer, as well: Front Page Image Source: Open Road Films »
