Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trailer Has Tina Fey Set Up Camp In Afghanistan

11 February 2016 12:19 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

30 Rock actress Tina Fey is preparing for some strange days across Afghanistan and Pakistan in the latest trailer for war dramedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Focus and Crazy, Stupid, Love), the feature film lifts inspiration from Kim Barker’s wartime memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan, shipping Fey’s budding Chicago Tribune reporter off to the front lines as a war correspondent.

And so, without a shred of experience to call her own, Fey’s lead finds herself knee deep in Operation Enduring Freedom – Aka the global war on terrorism – as our photojournalist begins capturing the skirmishes across the sun-scorched region. As today’s trailer attests, overseas reporting is by no means her forte, and Ficarra and Requa are doubling down on the fish-out-of-water dynamic for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. There’s an air of Liz Lemon’s slick sense »

Watch: Tina Fey and Margot Robbie in New ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’ Trailer

11 February 2016 11:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tina Fey has to deal with guns, Afghanistan and Margot Robbie as a foreign correspondent in the new red band trailer for Paramount’s war comedy “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”

The trailer begins with Robbie’s British journalist asking Fey for permission to sleep with Fey’s bodyguard —  which Fey gives after only a brief hesitation. It ends with Fey on camera and describing Afghanistan’s first woman driver, who immediately crashes the car.

“That sucks for women,” Fey responds.

Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, Billy Bob Thornton, Stephen Peacocke and Sheila Vand also star. The film is directed by “Crazy Stupid Love” helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Freeman plays a Scottish war photographer and Molina is a local official — who both make advances on Fey’s Kim Barker.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” is based on former Chicago Tribune reporter Barker’s 2011 memoir, “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan. »

11 February 2016 11:05 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A new trailer for Tina Fey's latest movie, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, has arrived, and it looks like it's exactly the kind of darkly funny movie about a foreign correspondent that we'd expect from the Sisters actress. Based on real-life reporter Kim Barker's memoir The Taliban Shuffle, the movie adaptation follows a war journalist throughout her experiences in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where she goes to escape her unsatisfying job and her "mildly depressive boyfriend," finding success, friendship, and possibly love. Fey is producing and starring in the funny film, which has a stellar cast with the likes of Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, and Billy Bob Thornton. Watch the trailers, and catch the movie when it hits theaters on March 4. Here's the first trailer: »

Second Trailer Arrives for 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' Starring Tina Fey

11 February 2016 9:19 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This is an extreme environment. People with actual experience make bad decisions here." Paramount has debuted another new trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, the comedy from Glenn Ficarra & John Requa starring Tina Fey as a TV reporter sent to do coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan for her first time. It's a good story to tell, and they try to have fun with it, but sometimes the jokes in this fall flat and it doesn't look that good, but other times it looks solid. This also stars Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Nicholas Braun, Josh Charles, Alfred Molina, plus Christopher Abbott. This trailer is slightly better than the first one, but it still doesn't really show too much. Opening in theaters next month. Here's the second trailer for Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, direct via YouTube: You can watch the first official trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot here, »

11 February 2016 5:20 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's always a bit delicate when comedies drop American actors into foreign lands and aim for laughs, and in the upcoming "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," the jokes look to be mostly at the expense of Tina Fey, though some stereotypes of Middle Easterners also get dragged out.

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

Our Brand Is Crisis movie review: unearned (and unneeded) sentiment

27 January 2016 1:49 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A protagonist who revels in the sheer cynicism of her job gets a sentimental redemption out of nowhere; Sandra Bullock’s comedic chops are undercut by it. I’m “biast” (pro): love Sandra Bullock

I’m “biast” (con): …though I often hate her movie choices

I have not seen the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

So here’s the thing. Movie protagonists don’t necessarily have to be likable. But they do have to comprehensible. We have to understand what the central character of a story wants. Does she want to rule the world? Does she want to blow up the world? Fine. Just give us a story that takes us along on that journey.

But this Our Brand Is Crisis movie… I never got it. I never understood what is supposed to be motivating political strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock: Minions, »

Our Brand Is Crisis review – dirty political dealings in South America

24 January 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton go head to head as strategists in a patchy satire about the 2002 Bolivian elections

David Gordon Green’s uneven Wag the Dog-style satirical political romp takes both its title and theme from Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary about the role played by the gun-for-hire American consultants in the 2002 Bolivian elections. Sandra Bullock (who shares producer credits with, among others, George Clooney and Grant Heslov) is the reclusive political strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine, who turned her back on her profession after one dirty trick too many.

Reluctantly enlisted to help elect the unlikable bully Castillo (Joaquim de Almeida), Jane gets the bit between her teeth when she discovers that her arch-rival, Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), is running the opposition’s campaign. Screenwriter Peter Straughan’s script originally featured a male protagonist, but Bullock makes the role her own, from vomiting into a wastepaper basket »
