Let’s throw Orcs and wizards and wands and anything we want in there.” The result is a crazy-looking fantasy-cop-drama starring Will Smith as a regular L.A.P.D. officer with an Orc... Read More »

'Snake Outta Compton' Trailer Is as Ridiculous as It Sounds

16 October 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Hollywood may have hit peak genre mashup with Snake Outta Compton.

Heat Vision is debuting the first trailer for the film, which centers on a rap group about to sign its first big record deal just as a science experiment gone wrong threatens the city of Compton.

A quick look at the trailer reveals a lot going on — there's a little bit of Training Day, Snake on a Plane and Straight Outta Compton — plus a thick-glasses-wearing nerd-turned-monster creator whose style may seem familiar to '90s kids. 

Hank Braxtan directs the project, which he wrote with Tim Johnson and brothers James »

Denzel Washington Fights for Justice in ‘Roman J. Israel, Esq.’ Trailer

5 October 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Denzel Washington is an even-keeled, no-nonsense criminal defense attorney in the trailer for Sony’s legal thriller “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”

“Sorry for taking a nano-second off you assembly line rubber-stamp existence,” he tells off another attorney, without raising his voice.

At another point, an associate discusses a plea bargain with him over the phone, saying, “Voluntary manslaughter. It’s a good deal.” He responds: “It’s an enema of sunshine.”

The trailer, released Thursday, sets up the premise of Washington’s character operating in the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system as a disillusioned defense attorney. He infers that he’s being let go from his job after being told, “This firm has run at a deficit for years.”

So he’s recruited to an upscale film by Colin Farrell, who co-stars as an ambitious lawyer and explains his decision by saying, “I’m tired of doing the impossible for the ungrateful.”

My deal is that a show can get away with a lot if I’m impressed by the plotting. There have been funnier, more moving, and more devastating episodes than The Ricklantis Mixup, but this was an absolute stunner of a storyline. So, yeah, I loved it.

A bait and switch, this episode is not actually about Rick and Morty’s Atlantis adventure. They do go on one; we just don’t get to see it. Instead, we get to see “Tales from the Citadel.” At the beginning of the season, »

Toronto: Denzel Washington's 'Roman J. Israel, Esq.' Sets World Premiere

31 August 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Dan Gilroy’s legal thriller Roman J. Israel, Esq., starring Denzel Washington, is headed to Toronto for a world premiere, completing the lineup for the Special Presentations sidebar, organizers said Thursday.

Tiff debuted Nightcrawler three years ago and also gave a world bow to Training Day, which earned Washington a best actor Oscar. The track record encouraged the return gig in Toronto for Gilroy and Washington, with the world premiere nabbed away from Telluride. 

“We always hoped to premiere at Toronto and couldn't be happier that Tiff audiences will be the first to see the film,” Gilroy said in »

Denzel Washington Thriller ‘Roman J. Israel, Esq.’ Premiering at Toronto Film Festival

31 August 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Denzel Washington will travel to the Toronto International Film Festival for the world premiere of “Roman J. Israel, Esq.

The film’s inclusion in the gathering demonstrates that Sony Pictures believes it has an Oscar contender on its hands. Washington has nabbed two Oscar acting prizes for “Glory” and “Training Day.” He has seven nominations, including one for last year’s “Fences.” He could find himself back in the best actor race this year for his performance as an idealistic defense attorney. It’s also a homecoming of sorts for “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” Sony bought the rights to the film at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival when it was then entitled “Savage City.”

There are number of awards contenders hitting Toronto this year, including Joe Wright’s “The Darkest Hour,” Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father,” and Andy Serkis’ “Breathe.”
