"Let's go get our money back." Warner Bros has released the first trailer for Zach Braff's new comedy, titled Going in Style, starring three very talented actors: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine & Alan Arkin. These three decide to team up for a heist to knock over a bank that absconded with their money, so they can retire "in style". The full cast includes Joey King, Ann-Margret, Matt Dillon, Peter Serafinowicz, John Ortiz and Josh Pais. I'm surprised Zach Braff isn't in this film as well, considering he's appeared in every other movie he has directed so far, but all for the better. This looks funnier than expected, probably because these three actors are always so much fun to watch, but I'm still not sure how enjoyable this will be. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Zach Braff's Going in Style, direct from WB's YouTube: Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, »

A few years back, Jason Bateman made his directorial debut with the amusing yet filthy comedy Bad Words. This year, he has a sophomore feature that just hit screens in The Family Fang. I saw this movie a couple of weeks ago at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and found it to be only decent, but regardless of my thoughts, it shows off an interesting direction for Bateman as a filmmaker. He seems to be moving towards prestige fare, which is not exactly where you’d initially peg his projects to go. For that, I can’t help but show admiration for his choices so far. The movie is an adaptation of Kevin Wilson’s novel. The plot centers on the adult lives of the children of noted performance art mavericks Caleb Fang (Christopher Walken) and Camille Fang (Maryann Plunkett). As kids, Baxter Fang (Bateman) and Annie Fang (Nicole Kidman) enjoyed »

Stars: Jason Bateman, Nicole Kidman, Kathryn Hahn, Christopher Walken, Marin Ireland, Harris Yulin, Eugenia Kuzmina, Michael Chernus, Josh Pais, Maryann Plunkett | Written by David Lindsay-Abaire | Directed by Jason Bateman
Performance artists. What good are they anyhow? It’s not like they put their lives on the line, or make a strong statement about anything going on in current events. It’s not like they tend to become wildly notorious for their acts, nor do they leave a mark on younger generations.
But the question is, what happens to their kids? That’s what The Family Fang sets out to solve…
The second directorial feature from Jason Bateman after 2013′s Bad Words, The Family Fang sees Bateman star as Baxter Fang, the brother of Annie Fang, played by Nicole Kidman. They are affectionately called “Child A” and “Child B” by their parents Caleb and Camille, played by the one and only »

"We can't fix them, we can only fix ourselves." Starz Digital Media has debuted a trailer for the indie drama The Family Fang, directed by actor Jason Bateman, who also stars in the film which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Nicole Kidman also stars with Bateman as brother & sister who go home looking for their prankster parents, played by Christopher Walken & Maryann Plunkett. The cast includes Marin Ireland, Josh Pais, Michael Chernus and others. This looks interesting, not what you'll be expecting at first, and potentially like it may be worth seeing if you're wondering what's really happening. Here's the first official trailer for Jason Bateman's The Family Fang, originally from EW.com: Jason Bateman and Nicole Kidman are a brother-and-sister duo who return to their family home but can't seem to figure out if their eccentric parents have faked their deaths. The Family Fang is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Jason Bateman, »

Chicago – The legacy of country music singer Hank Williams is embraced in every lonesome twang you hear in any song. The actor Tom Hiddleston (“Thor”) transcends his Loki roots to embody the 1950s songster in a way that is otherworldly, working from the script and direction of Marc Abraham.
Hank Williams was a bright wattage bulb that burned like a thousand suns, and was extinguished instantly at the tender age of 29. The influence of his short time within the country music scene, from about 1946 through to his death in 1953, was through the music chart statistic that Williams had an astounding 35 singles reach the country and western Top Ten (five after his death). His signature style and easy-going hit making continues to be heard in the heart of C&W (and all pop) music, and he can easily qualify as one of the Olympus-like gods of that particular brand of musical faith. »

Back in the midst of 2015, it seemed like the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light was all set to be a big Academy Award player. Considering how small this week’s platform release of the film is, as well as its middling festival circuit reception, that seems less than likely, but it is somewhat interesting to take note of. The main point of consideration was going to be Tom Hiddleston as Williams, as well as potentially Elizabeth Olsen as wife Audrey Williams, though now I suspect they’re fringe players at best. I’ll return to their Oscar hopes later on in this article, but I just wanted to cite this film today since it’s one of a ton hoping to be a biopic contender in 2016. The movie is a fairly standard biopic. Of course, the subject is legendary country-western singer Hank Williams and his life that was cut short. »
