Tom McCarthy’s solid newsroom drama gets behind the headlines of the child abuse scandal that rocked Boston’s Catholic community in 2002
Actor-turned-filmmaker Tom McCarthy has always been a low-key champion of the outsider. His first film as writer/director, 2003’s The Station Agent, starred Peter Dinklage as a Hoboken exile who moves into an abandoned train depot seeking solitude and becomes an unexpected catalyst for change. In 2007’s The Visitor, Richard Jenkins’s widowed college professor strikes up a life-changing bond with the family of a Syrian immigrant who has unexpectedly moved into his Manhattan apartment. Now, in the Oscar-nominated Spotlight, McCarthy and co-writer Josh Singer give us the true story of how the Boston Globe, under its first Jewish editor, out-of-towner Marty Baron, took on the entrenched abusive institutions of the church in a city where Catholicism is a way of life and police and priests are thick as thieves. »

Frank Underwood's 2016 is starting off right. House of Cards' Kevin Spacey won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, his second win in the category for his work as the Netflix series' anti-hero. Spacey beat out Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, Mad Men's Jon Hamm, Mr. Robot's Rami Malek, and Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk to take home the award. But it was a bittersweet moment for Spacey, who used his time on stage to thank and say goodbye to exiting showrunner, Beau Willimon, who created the acclaimed drama.

Anything is a movie these days, so yes, a forgotten '90s toy and a mobile app are all fair game. And both of those examples are getting the big screen treatment, so sit back, and watch corporate synergy at work. Read More: The Animated 'The Angry Birds Movie' Will Cost $185 Million First up is "Trolls," with those freakishly haired dolls now getting a movie. Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick are voice leads for this one that follows Poppy and Branch, as they embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond the only world they’ve ever known. Meanwhile, "The Angry Birds Movie" has brought together Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader, Peter Dinklage, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks, Romeo Santos, and Smosh for the adventure that sees the titular avian heroes facing off against mysterious green piggies. »

"Can anyone see what's going on here?" Sony has unveiled a second trailer for their upcoming animated The Angry Birds Movie, which even features a Michael Jackson song, because what better way to sell this junk than connect it with Michael Jackson. This animated movie is based on the popular video game series and it seems about as completely brainless as the games, without much of an interesting story. The voice cast includes Jason Sudeikis, Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Josh Gad, Danny McBride and Peter Dinklage as the voice of Mighty Eagle. This doesn't look like it's worth seeing unless you have kids, but give it a look anyway in case anyone is curious to see how they turned this into a movie. Here's the second official trailer for Clay Kaytis & Fergal Reilly's Angry Birds movie, direct from YouTube: The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, »

When the Angry Birds movie was first announced, it was hard to imagine the cast list would be such a who's who (that's not an owl joke) of Hollywood comedians. Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Danny McBride, Keegan-Michael Key, Ike Barinholtz, and Peter Dinklage are all lending their voices to the movie, based on the wildly popular mobile game. This trailer introduces the birds and their piggish foes, and it's a good look at how this movie is actually going to function as a standalone film, rather than just being a big way to capitalize on the success of the game - though it's definitely that, too. The movie is due out on May 20. Here's the first teaser: »

Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses) has a temper problem in the first full-length trailer for Sony’s upcoming Angry Birds animation, which seeds the origins story behind the seemingly never-ending conflict between those dastardly pigs and the titular avians that has captured the imagination of an entire generation.
Leaping from touch screen to silver screen in May of this year, animation newcomers Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis are the directors tasked with lending personality to those temperamental – and, crucially, flightless – birds, who have grown into an undisputed global phenomenon with close to 2 billion downloads of the title game across numerous platforms.
But success in one medium doesn’t necessarily guarantee a sure-fire hit in another; outside of the relatively popular Angry Birds Toons, this is the first time that Rovio’s mobile juggernaut will be moulded into a tangible story, replete with narrative and an impressive voice cast.

Yep, there's an "Angry Birds" movie coming this May -- taking the birds vs. pigs game, giving it a loose plot, and selling it to kids, their parents, and any other adults who like underdog stories and pee jokes.
A teaser trailer came out last September, but the first official trailer just dropped, focusing on a bird with anger issues named Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis). Red is the only one who recognizes that the new pigs in town are up to no good. And Red seems to be angry because he's bullied for his eyebrows and treated like an outcast -- like Rudolph if Rudolph just snapped one day.
The trailer takes us through the basics of the story, as Red and his fellow outsider buddies Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb (Danny McBride) try to figure out what the green pigs are up to. Along the way, they visit »

The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

While Assassin's Creed and Warcraft attempt to buck the trend when it comes to video game to movie adaptions, lets not forget that Angry Birds is making the jump from the mobile phone screen to the big screen. To remind us, Sony have unveiled a new trailer for The Angry Birds Movie, which takes us back to the beginning and reveals what made these colourful little birds so pissed off at the pigs, with Jason Sudekis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, and Peter Dinklage all lending their voices to the animated feature.. This is well and truly aimed at kids, and with that demographic in mind, it certainly seems to tick all the boxes. Released: 13th May (Irl/U.K.)/20th May (U.S.) »

Jason Sudeikis, Danny McBride, Josh Gad, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, and YouTube stars Smosh lend their voices to the film which opens in May.
