Best known for his stumbling car salesman and poor choice of a husband in the Coen Bros’s Fargo, in his almost four decade career William H. Macy has seen his share of Park City red carpet treatment, including his directorial debut in 2014. While Rudderless might have been true to the film’s title, the filmmaker got right back into the saddle this past May for his sophomore project. What is being referred to as an American road trip sex comedy, despite some noteworthy comedic folk within this set of players (Alexandra Daddario, Kate Upton, Matt Barr, Matt L. Jones, Rob Corddry, Kal Penn, Molly Shannon) this doesn’t feel as Sundance-y as his previous effort.

Nothing like getting the gang back together after a successful entry. That seems to be the case for the Mission: Impossible franchise, and that includes doing something they’ve never done before.
Variety reports Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed this year’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is in talks to return in both capacities for the sixth entry. If McQuarrie agrees, he would be the first director in the franchise to return for a second entry.
On top of bringing McQuarrie back, Variety adds that stand-out Rebecca Ferguson could also be coming back for the next movie after the studio signed her for an option. Paramount is looking to turn around the next Mi film after Rogue Nation was such a runaway hit.

Writer Scott Snyder has created a name for himself in the comic book world with his Batman series and, lately, the ongoing horror comics, Wytches. Another series his fans adore is American Vampire, a genre bending reimagination of vampire folklore, mainly surrounding Skinner Sweet, a new breed of the species who leaves a mark in various stages of American history. In one of the earlier issues, he saves an aspiring actress Pearl Jones during the 1920s silent film era after she is attacked by Hollywood vampires. She becomes a vampire herself, which leads to a life of revenge.
Episode seven of American Horror Story focused its energy on The Countess (Lady Gaga) and her journey to what made her the woman she is today. The Countess, it turns out, was an extra during the 1920s in Hollywood, lusting after Rudolph Valentino (Finn Wittrock, returning as a different, yet much more »

Rarely has American Horror Story sustained its current level of momentum, quality and sheer entertainment...
This review contains spoilers.
I absolutely love it when American Horror Story uses film-making style to help tell their story. It's not a question of the way the characters dress or the way the sets are displayed, but a question of actual technical techniques. A significant portion of Flicker is devoted to the life and times of a very young Countess—long before she was the Countess—as a fresh-faced Italian girl from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn who made her way out to Hollywood to become a star on the silver screen. A chance appearance as a harem girl leads to a meeting that will change young Countess's life forever as she finds herself wooed by the most famous lover in history, Rudolph Valentino (Finn Wittrock, playing a new role) and his glamorous wife, »

Not too long ago, a shortlist of actresses eyed for the lead female role in the upcoming Baywatch reboot surfaced, but one name stood out from them all, and that was of course True Detective and San Andreas star Alexandra Daddario. The studio clearly realised that she was a fan-favourite choice as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Get ready for muscles, boobs, and sharks! According to the Rock’s Instagram, he’s damn good at lip-syncing “All I Want For Christmas Is You” while driving. But more importantly (and more relevant to this post, some might argue), he also reports that Alexandra Daddario is joining the cast of Seth Gordon’s new Baywatch movie, alongside Dwayne himself and fellow Baywatch-y style smooth-bodied (I'm guessing) hunk Zac Efron. The Rock previously worked with Daddario in the movie San Andreas, where she played his daughter, so hopefully he won’t feel too icky seeing her boobs move around in slow-mo. And vice versa. »

Although plot details are currently vague, sources close to the project reveal that the studio is taking a comedic route with the movie. Production is expected to commence in early 2016.
