The role of a dad has traditionally been to work outside of the home and bring home the steady paycheck in order to support his family so that he can be respected as a man, a husband, and a father. That role has been changing as of late and has taken on a new dimension in real life as well as in films.

Michael Keaton’s ‘American Assassin’ Gets September Release Date

20 March 2017 4:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate and CBS Films have set a Sept. 15 release date for “American Assassin,” starring Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, and Taylor Kitsch.

Kill the Messenger” helmer Michael Cuesta directed the thriller from a screenplay by Stephen Schiff. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler are producing the film. Based on Vince Flynn’s novel, the movie follows Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Keaton), who would be the most feared training officer in the CIA if more than a handful of people at the agency actually knew of his existence.

As the story begins, Hurley’s deputy director (Lathan) tasks him with training a black ops recruit devastated by the loss of his fiancée to a terrorist attack. The pair is eventually dispatched on a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent — played by actress Shiva Negar — to stop a mysterious operative (played by Kitsch) from starting World War III in the Middle East. »

The Founder – Review

19 January 2017 10:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a most unusual entry in a genre that’s now becoming a cinema staple: the origin story. Now that term may be most associated with comic books, and many of the superhero blockbusters are just that, the story of how he, she, or they came to get their powers, whip up a costume, and so on (the recent Doctor Strange is an excellent example). Ah, but this is a true tale, almost an autobiography. There have been many “bio-origins”, from Young Mr. Lincoln to Southside With You (hmm.. both about future presidents). Yes, there’s the individual’s journey, but this flick is also about a product. The Social Network concerned Mark Zuckerberg and the creation of that website, and Steve Jobs was as much about the man as it was about the personal computer. This new movie focuses on Ray Kroc and chronicles the evolution of the fast food restaurant industry, »
