Great Double Features I’Ve Seen #1: Smokey And The Bandit (1977) And Convoy (1978)

12 March 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

(This is the first in an occasional series in which I remember some of the best double features I’ve been lucky enough to see projected in a theater.)

The New Beverly Cinema, the oldest surviving revival theater in Los Angeles, has this week dished up a time-capsule glimpse into America’s popular obsession with Cb, or citizen’s band, radio and the largely mythological outlaw trucker culture through which it crackled.

Untitled Robert Zemeckis Thriller Adds Lizzy Caplan Opposite Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard

8 March 2016 2:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh from inducing moviegoers with vertigo in The Walk, director Robert Zemeckis is quietly assembling the cast of his new, yet-to-be-titled feature.

Last summer, we learned that Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard had closed a deal to headline the drama as a lovestruck pair of assassins, and now Deadline is reporting that Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan has boarded Zemeckis’ latest in an unknown role.

Attracting the support of Paramount Pictures, Gk Films and New Regency, there’s no official word from either party about the plot underpinning the director’s mystery project, nor how Caplan fits into the puzzle. That said, Deadline claims the Now You See Me 2 actress will play the sister of Brad Pitt’s character, but we await official confirmation.

Behind the lens, Robert Zemeckis will be directing from a script produced by Steven Knight (Locke, Peaky Blinders). On the producing end of things, »
