Game Night Sneak Peek Takes Jason Bateman on One Wild Ride

During the Afc and Nfc Championship Games yesterday, Warner Bros. released two new TV spots for Game Night with new footage. The first TV spot makes the bold claim that the Warner Bros. comedy is, "defying everything you know about movies," which is followed by the highly-improbable scene where a gun-toting man is literally sucked into the engine of a jet. That scene is followed by another where a couple, played by Lamorne Morris and Kylie Bunbury, try to escape from a windowless room by burning the door down, which isn't exactly safe.

This first TV spot also includes a number of quotes from Twitter users, who have presumably attended an early screening of Game Night, along with footage of the main couple, Max and Annie, played byJason Bateman and Rachel McAdams. The TV spot includes footage of Annie accidentally shooting Max, which leads to Annie trying to extract the bullet from his arm,

It seems like something out of our wildest dreams, and yet it's somehow very real.  The Post tells the strange but true story of how the Washington Post went against protocol (and the law) to publish leaked government documents about the futility of the Vietnam War. Many directors would be wary to take on such heavy material, but it obviously didn't deter Spielberg at all. Rounding up a best-of-the-best cast, he has crafted a thrilling and rather timely movie about the freedom of the press.

Movie Review – The Post (2017)

The Post, 2017.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jesse Plemons, Alison Brie and Matthew Rhys.

Synopsis:

In the early 70s, the Washington Post discovers an extensive cover-up spanning four Us Presidents. The decision to publish what became known as The Pentagon Papers puts it, especially its publisher and editor, on a collision course with the government.

We’ve seen Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee before, but played by a gruff Jason Robards in All The President’s Men (1976). There’s no mention in Steven Spielberg’s The Post of either Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein – at least by name – but by the end of the film we’re in no doubt that one of the many hats worn by the film is that of prequel. To Watergate. And it’s all laced with the delicious irony of

Win Passes To The St. Louis Screening Of Hostiles Starring Christian Bale

Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico, to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike), whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche and vicious outliers that they encounter along the way. Hostiles is directed by Scott Cooper (Black Mass, Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart) and produced by John Lesher (Black Mass, Birdman, Fury) and Ken Kao (The Nice Guys, Knight of Cups). The film stars: Christian Bale (The Big Short, American Hustle, The Dark Knight) Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Jack Reacher), Wes Studi (Avatar, Heat, Geronimo), Adam Beach (Suicide Squad,

Is All of Black Mirror Connected? This Season 4 Episode Changes Everything

Image Source: Netflix Warning: a ton of spoilers for Black Mirror below! If you watched Black Mirror's excellent fourth season in the intended order, then you know it ends with an episode jam-packed with Easter eggs: "Black Museum." The 70-minute dystopian tale follows a young woman (Letitia Wright) whose car runs out of gas outside a museum full of oddities, called "The Black Museum." Once inside, proprietor Rolo Haynes (Douglas Hodge) tells her stories relating to each of the disturbing artifacts - most from previous season four episodes - on display. There's the iPad from "Arkangel," the bloody bathtub from "Crocodile," and the DNA scanner from "USS Callister," among others. What's interesting is that "Black Museum" also has a few references to other seasons of Black Mirror: one of the tiny solar-powered bug robots from season three's "Hated in the Nation," a dummy wearing a mask from season two's "White Bear,

New Featurette Arrives For Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’

20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for The Post highlighting actor Tom Hanks as Ben Bradlee. The featurette includes commentary from director Steven Spielberg, and fellow cast members Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk, and more.

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

The Post marks the first time Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a project. In addition to directing, Spielberg produces

Second Opinion – Hostiles (2017)

Hostiles, 2017.

Directed by Scott Cooper.

Starring Christian Bale, Rosamond Pike, Wes Studi, Ben Foster, Timothée Chalamet, Jesse Plemons, Adam Beach, Q’orianka Kilcher, Rory Cochrane, Bill Camp, John Benjamin Hickey, Tanaya Beatty, Jonathan Majors, Scott Wilson, Peter Mullan, David Midthunder, Paul Anderson, Ryan Bingham, and Stephen Lang.

Synopsis:

In 1892, a legendary Army captain reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory.

Hostiles, like many other westerns, opens with an action sequence. Specifically, a group of Comanche warriors attack a peaceful homestead in a New Mexico valley, murdering all residents except one, Rosamund Pike’s Rosalie Quaid. The slaughter of the family is unflinching and intense, and starts the movie off with a real bang. However, there is far more to this opening sequence that would be expected from your usual, by-the-numbers western.

The opening shot says it all: a lone house, dwarfed by the valley from which the Comanches emerge.

Black Mirror Season 4 Review – ‘USS Callister’

Martin Carr reviews Black Mirror’s USS Callister…

Some have called this the flagship episode of season four and it has many of the hallmarks you might expect. In Jesse Plemons and Jimmi Simpson we have Breaking Bad and House of Cards alumni doing the dramatic heavy lifting. Production wise Brooker’s world never looked so expansive, tangible and technically deviant as it does for ‘USS Callister’. However what separates this from its counterparts in episodes two through six comes down to the savage relevance of those topics under discussion.

Never one for backing away from a topically loaded gun Brooker tackles dubious on-line behaviours, our subsequent disconnect from reality as well as issues surrounding DNA cloning. This is heavy hitting material wrapped up in nostalgia laced Star Trek flashbacks. Certain character elements remind me of John Cusack in Spike Jonze’s Being John Malkovich, such is the radical change

Performer of the Week: Cristin Milioti

Performer of the Week: Cristin Milioti
The Performer | Cristin Milioti

The Show | Black Mirror

The Episode | “USS Callister” (Dec. 29, 2017)

The Performance | To be clear, the entire crew of Black Mirror‘s terrifically twisty sci-fi adventure deserves a commendation, including Jesse Plemons for his vengeful-nerd fury and Westworld‘s Jimmi Simpson for deftly balancing humor and heartbreak. But even in the midst of a loaded cast, Milioti stood out as “USS Callister’s” plucky heroine, armed with equal parts guts and grace.

Playing new hire Nanette, Milioti was innocent and flirty at first, with Nanette marveling at her boss Robert Daley’s high-tech wizardry. But that innocence

It's a familiar image: a strapping, confident young white guy seated in the captain's chair of a spaceship, blaster at his hip, hair coifed just so, one elbow on the armrest, legs spread wide as if to say, "Mine is no tiny penis you are dealing with."

‘Black Mirror’s “USS Callister” Is a Searing and Surprising Indictment of Toxic Masculinity

Spoilers for the Black Mirror Season 4 episode “USS Callister” follow below. If “San Junipero” was the Black Mirror Season 3 episode that everyone was talking about, its buzzworthy equivalent in Season 4 is certainly “USS Callister.” The installment already had high interest as it marked the first Black Mirror episode set in space, teasing some sort of Star Trek-esque homage led by Jesse Plemons. But in practice, “USS Callister” is much more than a Star Trek riff. It’s a wildly entertaining and surprisingly insightful sci-fi tale that also happens to be a searing indictment of toxic …

The Star Trek Inspired Black Mirror Episode "USS Callister" Could Get a Spinoff Series

One of my favorite Black Mirror episodes in Season four was the Star Trek-inspired episode "USS Callister". It was so good and it went into a crazy awesome direction that I didn't see coming at all! If you haven't seen it yet, I won't ruin it for you, but I will say that Jesse Plemons gives an incredible performance as a James T. Kirk-like character named Captain Daly, who fearlessly leads his crew on adventures to help protect the galaxy. If you haven't seen the episode yet, there's a huge surprising twist to this story that I think you'll love.

If you have seen the episode, you'll be happy to hear that there's potential for a spin-off series! While talking to THR in a recent interview, director Toby Haynes was asked about a possible sequel, and this was his reply:

Kirsten Dunst's Brief Black Mirror Cameo Has Some Layers

The inaugural episode for Black Mirror's newest season on Netflix - the Star Trek fandemonium-inspired mind trip, "USS Callister" - offers up not one but two major celeb cameos with a connection to the episode's space star, Jesse Plemons. Breaking Bad fans will no doubt sling a few B-words to celebrate the fact that Jesse Pinkman himself, Aaron Paul, lends his unmistakable vocals to the closing moments of the season's lengthiest sci-fi adventure. Considering how things shake out between their characters in the AMC series, well, there's a bit of paralleling here in how this episode's landing sticks for each as well (hint: one's still on the move, and the other . . . isn't). But it's the other big surprise guest that earns all the emotional points because, yes, that is Kirsten Dunst herself that's briefly shown walking through a shot at Callister HQ near the beginning.
