"How well do you really know Julia?" Warner Bros has released the trailer for a romantic thriller titled Unforgettable, about a woman who sets out to make life hell for her ex-husband's new wife. The man-in-the-middle is played by Geoff Stults, and the two women are played by Katherine Heigl (with some seriously wicked blonde hair that makes her look like Monica Bellucci) and Rosario Dawson. The film is also a reunion for Heigl and Di Novi, who previously collaborated on Life as We Know It. The main cast also includes young actress Isabella Rice, Simon Kassianides, Whitney Cummings, Robert Wisdom and Cheryl Ladd. From the description, this seems like a comedy but it's actually a crazy twisted thriller. Here's the first official trailer for Denise Di Novi's Unforgettable, direct from WB's YouTube: Heigl stars as Tessa Connover, who is barely coping with the end of her marriage when her ex-husband, »

Though Logan Sandler’s film “Live Cargo” is set in the Bahamas, it doesn’t reflect the archetypal tropical paradise, but instead a sharp look at the daily machinations of the island community. Filmed in black-and-white, the film stars Dree Hemingway (“Starlet”) and Keith Stanfield (“Atlanta”) as Nadine and Lewis, a couple who has recently experienced a devastating loss and travels to the island in order to restore their relationship. But when they arrive, they find that the island community is unraveling, with the island’s mayor squaring off against a human trafficker who manipulates an impressionable homeless teenager into assisting with his smuggling operation. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

In “Live Cargo,” Nadine (Dree Hemingway) and Lewis (Keith Stanfield) have suffered a horrible loss — the worst thing that a young couple could experience; a loss too large to comprehend. The film doesn’t make an attempt to comprehend it — the loss is seen only in the eyes of Nadine and Lewis, staring at the fluorescent lights of a hospital corridor, in flashes of hands and small feet. It’s not spoken because it can’t be. They escape to the Bahamas, a place where Nadine grew up vacationing. She finds comfort in the the steadfast company of Roy (Robert Wisdom), the man who tends to her father’s property, the man who taught her to swim and dive, deep under clear water with a spear gun. She finds calm below the ocean’s surface, stalking sharks. She drowns her thoughts in rum and beer and music and salt water, »

Will Arnett stars in Netflix’s newest comedy, Flaked, which charts the laid-back problems of a former alcoholic as he wanders the streets of Venice Beach on a bicycle. If that description doesn’t do much for you, don’t worry, you aren’t in the minority – the show is neither a comedy, nor a drama, nor much of a TV show. Sure, characters fight, love triangles form and season-ending twists aim to shock, but Flaked never escapes a feeling of falsity.
It’s a show that feels like a textbook’s idea of a show: each character has the perfectly redeemable flaw, episode structure grows repetitive by the half-way point, and attempts at unfolding the mystery around certain characters universally end in a brick wall. It’s a dull addict drama, a humorless buddy comedy, and an unromantic romantic comedy all bundled »

The first wave of films screening at the 15th Tribeca Film Festival have been announced and this year, the Narrative program has been split into two separate sections: the Us Narrative competition which celebrates the works of American filmmakers and the International Narrative competition which will showcase cinematic works spanning five continents.

“In our 15th year we wanted to deepen our support of American narrative filmmakers and have opened our competition to separately showcase the Us and International films,” said Genna Terranova, Festival Director. “We are very impressed by the films this year and inspired to see new voices transcending traditions and taking risks by telling their stories their own way. We are excited to share with audiences how »
