Cardboard Boxer Review

17 September 2016 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whenever there’s a new drama with Academy Award-nominated actors debasing themselves to play homeless, lowly or generally impoverished people, you come with certain preset expectations. Something almost along the lines of 30 Rock‘s Hard to Watch: Based on the Novel “Stone Cold Bummer” by Manipulate. You expect the worst, but you can’t help it. You’ve been burnt too many times before.

Thankfully and surprisingly, however, Cardboard Boxer, producer Knate Lee’s directorial debut, is not quite that. Sure, it’s cliched, manipulative and kinda indulgent, but it’s not completely awful. In fact, there’s a powerful film in here, just waiting to come out. And it sometimes does. But either through the filmmaker’s inexperience or his lack of narrative constraint, Lee only earns part of his unexpected potential. Knowing what he could have achieved, in spite of the odds, ultimately makes the uneven final product all the more disappointing. »

HBO Comedy Divorce Unveils First Trailer Starring Sarah Jessica Parker

14 September 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All eyes on the interwebs may be mesmerized by the alluring draw of HBO’s Westworld series, but the network is cooking up another freshman show that hails from the opposite end of the dramatic spectrum.

Forget artificial consciousness and billionaires playing God, Divorce is a new, half-hour comedy series that centers on Frances, an everyday wife and mother who longs to bring an end to her stifling marriage, but quickly begins to realize that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Played here by Sarah Jessica Parker – also on board as executive producer – it’s really Thomas Haden Church’s unsuspecting hubby Robert that is the source for much of the comedy in this early promo. Also starring Molly Shannon (The Year of the Dog), Talia Balsam (Mad Men), and Tracy Letts (Homeland) Divorce is, according to Parker, about mining the comedic aspects of an otherwise ridiculous situation. »

The Weekend Warrior 9/16/16: Blair Witch, Bridget Jones’s Baby, Snowden, Hillsong: Let Hope Rise

14 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:

Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood’s real-life drama about airline pilot Sully (Warner Bros.) far surpassed all expectations, making nearly $10 million more than my prediction with an opening weekend of $35 million in 3,525 theaters, also making it one of the biggest openings for a movie opening the weekend after Labor Day. The Screen Gems thriller When the Bough Breaks disappointed compared to some of their similar releases, taking second place with around where we predicted with around $14 million. The lower profile animated film The Wild Life (Summit/Lionsgate) did end up in fifth place behind Don’t Breathe and Suicide Squad, but with a measly $3.3 million in 2,493 theaters. As expected, Relativity’s theatrical return with its own horror/thriller The Disappointments Room »

Sarah Jessica Parker Misses Carrie Bradshaw but Is Leaving Her in the Past

12 September 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

More than 10 years after ending her role as the iconic Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to HBO. This time, Parker almost seems to embody the exact opposite of Carrie; in the new show, called Divorce, she's navigating her way through the other side of love: when you fall out of it and when everything unravels. Divorce seems to be more than just a meditation on love, though. In a new interview with Glamour, Parker discusses how the show is working against modern assumptions about marriage. Not only will it push against gender stereotypes, but it will offer a more complete portrait of marriage, and, from the sound of it, will leave Carrie Bradshaw in the past for good. On missing Carrie Bradshaw: "I miss it like the way I miss the birth of my son - you miss a wonderful moment, but you don't have any regrets. »

Legends of the Fall: 12 TV Actors We’re Happy to See Back on the Small Screen

7 September 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pamela Adlon, “Better Things

Compared to Adlon’s “Louie” character, the actress’ new role as single mom Sam is just as blunt and borderline provocative but far less intimidating. In fact, she’s kind of adorable in a painfully put-upon but unapologetic way. The semi-autobiographical story has us cringing alongside every embarrassing audition, parental freakout and unfair setback, and yet, Sam’s integrity and backhanded optimism is apparent in that she doesn’t give up, but instead copes (with vodka, but copes nonetheless). Sam is the promise of “Louie’s” Pamela fully realized.

Fall TV Preview: The 17 Most Anticipated Comedies of 2016

6 September 2016 7:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Mary + Jane”

September 5 on MTV 

What Is It? From the writer/directors behind the cult favorite “Josie and the Pussycats” adaptation, this series follows two “ganjapeneurs” who run a weed delivery service in Los Angeles.

I’ll Like It If I Like… The “Broad City” influence is pretty clear, as the show is focused on the tight friendship between Jordan (Scout Durwood) and Paige (Jessica Rothe) and their stoner antics.

Why Should I Care? Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont’s unique approach to satirizing La hipster culture really help this show stand out from the pack of other female-led comedies, while also promising a more surreal touch. Durwood and Rothe also make for an enjoyable pairing. For fans of the pot comedy genre, it’s an easy sell.

Atlanta

31 August 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Naomi Watts hasn’t made a horror movie in many moons, but she’s hardly a stranger to the genre. “The Ring” solidified her as a star after she made her breakthrough with David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive,” and the two-time Oscar nominee will soon reconnect to her genre roots with “Shut In.” The upcoming thriller just debuted its first trailer via USA Today, and thanks to the wonders of the internet you can watch it below.

Thomas Haden Church & Terrence Howard in 'Cardboard Boxer' Trailer

30 August 2016 8:55 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I wish someone would see me, just to know I am here..." Well Go USA has debuted a trailer for an indie drama titled Cardboard Boxer, starring Thomas Haden Church as a homeless man struggling to make ends meet. He's coerced by two teens to fight other men for cash, but obviously doesn't like doing so, and just wants to get away from his life on the streets. The cast includes Terrence Howard, Boyd Holbrook, and Macy Gray. The official description calls the film an "unflinching look at the lives of the displaced and forgotten members of society." This looks very powerful and heartbreaking, and even though Thomas Haden Church is almost hard to look at, he seems to be giving an earnest performance. This is worth a quick watch. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Knate Lee's Cardboard Boxer, in high def from Apple: Willie (Thomas Haden Church »

‘Cardboard Boxer’ Trailer: Thomas Haden Church Struggles To Escape Dark World of Fighting Homeless Men for Pay

30 August 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Knate Lee, known for producing the Johnny Knoxville-led “Jackass 3D” and “Bad Grandpa,” has stepped behind the camera to direct his first feature film “Cardboard Boxer,” starring Thomas Haden Church.

The drama – which appears to have skipped the festival circuit – centers on Willie (Church), a homeless man who is paid by two rich teens to fight other men for cash and then struggles to escape the dark world he’s gotten himself into. With the help of a new pen-pal and a trusting new friend (Terrence Howard), he hopes to turn his life around. 

Written by Lee, “Cardboard Boxer” also co-stars “Narcos’s” Boyd Holbrook, Rhys Wakefield, and musician Macy Gray. Check out the first trailer below.

‘Riverdale’ Trailer: Archie Comics Meets ‘Twin Peaks’ in Sexy & Twisted Mystery Series

30 August 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“From a distance it presents itself like so many other small towns all over the the world, safe, decent, innocent. Get closer though, and you start seeing the shadows underneath.” Those are the first words audiences hear from the dark and twisted trailer for the CW’s new show, “Riverdale.”

Set in present day and based on the iconic Archie Comics characters, the drama is a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small-town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.

In the first trailer, fans get introduced to a handful of its characters and a murder that has recently taken place. You can watch it by clicking here.
