Spy Clip: Rose Byrne Introduces Melissa McCarthy to Her Doppelganger

I thought I had grown tired of Melissa McCarthy's shtick, but Spy proved to be quite the surprise. (Click here to read my full review from SXSW.) Rather than deliver a dimwitted, bumbling main character who makes a complete turnaround in the third act, Susan Cooper is a smart, capable and very likable lead from start to finish.

‘Killing Bono’ Trailer – A Story About the Guys Who Didn’t Make It

‘Killing Bono’ Trailer – A Story About the Guys Who Didn’t Make It
[1] We all know the beats of the typical rock star origin story -- a talented, passionate young person finds his calling in life and overcomes adversity to achieve fame and success, etc. But what about the guy who didn't make it? The guy who put in the same sweat and blood and tears but never quite managed to scrape together enough talent or luck to actually break into the big time? We first showed you the trailer [2] for Killing Bono back in December, but now a new, very similar trailer has been released for its U.S. premiere this fall. The reality-based tale follows two brothers, Neil and Ivan McCormick (Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan) who start a band to rival their school friend Paul's (Martin McCann) group The Hype.
