Every year, celebrities, filmmakers, journalists and movie fans flock to the Tribeca neighborhood in lower Manhattan for the Tribeca Film Festival, an illustrious celebration of film and television that features some of the most exciting projects and panel discussions of any media festival in the country.
Founded by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the festival has helped revitalize the city and remind both filmmakers and fans alike of New York City’s valued place in film and TV while becoming a welcoming community for voices and perspectives from all over the world. “It’s also a fabric of our city. So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.”
The 2017 festival, which runs April 19-30, continues to expand beyond film and TV with »
The real Rocky Balboa takes center stage in the first trailer for Philippe Falardeau’s Chuck. Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) steps into the ring to portray Chuck Wepner, the once “heavyweight champ in New Jersey,” who Sylvester Stallone used for inspiration when writing Rocky, the quintessential boxing movie. Wepner earned notoriety and attention in 1975 after almost going 15 rounds with “The Greatest” himself, Muhammad Ali. Check out the trailer here…
A Wepner movie has been long in the works, with Schreiber and his co-star (and wife) Naomi Watts (Demolition) being attached since 2011 when the movie was titled The Bleeder. The film wrapped principal photography in December 2015 and was screened at the 2016 Venice Film Festival in September, so its theatrical release is a long time coming.
The few critics who were able to catch the film at Venice welcomed it with mostly positive reception, calling it familiar yet enjoyable and commending a no-punches-pulled performance from Schreiber. »

This weekend in theatres we've got some amazing movies!
Disney's Beauty and the Beast is back on the big screen in live action with Emma Watson playing Belle and Dan Stevens playing the Beast! Super excited for this one because the original animated movie is hands down my favourite Disney movie. Bring the entire family to this one and see it in IMAX!
Another classic returning is T2: Trainspotting! 20 years after the original that blew audiences away. The best part about this is that Ewan McGregor and his motley crew are back, along with director Danny Boyle. Choose life, choose Trainspotting 2!

Hockey movies generally aren’t great, with the exception of something like Slap Shot. Yet, defying all expectations, Michael Dowse’s Goon emerged to become a genuine cult classic and one of the best hockey flicks ever made. And so, a sequel has been made and is on the verge of being released in Canada (March 17th, but American fans will have to wait a bit longer – as explained below).... Read More »

Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Michael Kennedy3/15/2017 10:02:00 Am
A few years ago, an eclectic team of American and Canadian filmmakers teamed up for Goon. The Canadian comedy told the story of Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott), a bouncer turned minor league hockey enforcer, and the bruised and bloodied ice warriors that fought with and against him.
Canadian hockey fan Jay Baruchel co-wrote the script and played Doug’s friend Pat, while other Canucks like Alison Pill, Eugene Levy and Marc-André Grondin rounded out the cast. Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque even had a cameo. But one of the most unexpected cast members may have been American Liev Schreiber (Spotlight, TV’s Ray Donovan) as enforcer Ross “The Boss” Rhea. »

"You do what you need to do with the time you've got." Who doesn't love hockey fights? eOne has released another new trailer for the hockey comedy sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, this time a red band trailer full of blood and violence and foul language galore. Seann William Scott returns as Doug Glatt, the hockey player who just loves to fight, picking up where the story left off in Goon. He plans to retire from hockey (and fighting) but ends up back on the ice again, being trained for left-handed fighting by none other than Ross Rhea himself - Liev Schreiber. The cast includes Elisha Cuthbert, Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, T.J. Miller, Wyatt Russell, Marc-André Grondin, Jason Jones, Kim Coates. I like this trailer.

If there's one underrated genre of film - or completely unknown - it would be movies set on ice!
Whether it comes in the form of body-checking into the boards, or turning your worst enemies into ice sculptures, movies on ice are actually more exciting than you'd think. And with Goon: Last of the Enforcers coming to Cineplex theatres, movies on ice are getting even better.
Check out our favourite movies on ice below:
Not going to beat around the bush, Doug (Sean William Scott) is - for lack of better words - the family disappointment. With a brother and father in the medical field and Doug in the 'nothing-going-on-in-life' field, it's safe to say he's »

Strap those hockey pads back on because the final Canadian trailer has landed for Goon: Last of the Enforcers, the follow-up to, you guessed it, Goon. After the hardest hitter in the game, Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott) is told by a doctor he should never play hockey again, he enters the real world of — *shudders* — the 9-to-5. However, when Doug stumbles upon an old rival (Liev Shcreiber), he begins training to reclaim his team and his glory. Be careful, though, this trailer contains swear words, so slap some ear muffs over the kids before you put this one on ice.
This time, Jay Baruchel (a side character in the first), takes a bigger role as co-writer, director, and actor. The rest of the cast is rounded off by Elisha Cuthbert, Alison Pill, T.J. Miller, Kim Coates, and Wyatt Russell. While we’re still waiting a U.S. release date for this one, »

I’m not one for any kind of sport, really, so when I watch hockey it’s really just to see any potential fighting—like when I watch Nascar for the crashes and football for all the exciting clock stoppages. It's for this reason I enjoyed the first Goon with Seann William Scott so much, as it highlighted the most thrilling aspect: Canadians punching each other. The cult favorite has a... Read More »

Four months after the first Goon 2 trailer debuted, the second trailer has finally arrived with even more footage from this bloody hockey sequel. Seann William Scott returns to reprise his role as Doug Glatt from the 2012 cult classic comedy Goon, with Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, Kim Coates and Marc-Andre Grondin reprising their roles from the original as well. This trailer shows that Doug Glatt will have to make a major change if he wants to survive as a hockey player.
A lockout has brought a crew of new players to the Halifax Highlanders, but there's a notable omission from the line-up, and that's none other than Doug "The Thug" Glatt. The enforcer has been sidelined by one too many hits, is married with a baby on the way, and has a new job as an insurance salesman. But when rival Anders Cain becomes the Highlanders captain, and new ownership threatens to tear the team apart, »
Seann William Scott was once quite the popular comedic actor, but in recent years, he hasn’t been as in demand as he once was. Thankfully for him, fans of the 2011 hockey comedy Goon have been wanting to see him return to the ice for years, and how the American Pie franchise star finally has […]

"You smell like hot dogs." "Thank you." eOne in Canada has debuted a new full-length trailer for the hockey comedy sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, bringing back another unkillable hitman for more non-stop action - Doug Glatt.

The full cast includes Elisha Cuthbert, Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, T.J. Miller, Wyatt Russell, Marc-André Grondin, Jason Jones and Kim Coates.

Sean William Scott may be forever associated with the role of Steve Stifler from the American Pie saga, but the actor delivered a surprisingly scrappy and heartfelt performance in Goon, Michael Dowse’s sports comedy that went on to become something of a cult favorite six years ago.
And though it’s box office performance wasn’t enough to inspire confidence, fans have been quietly campaigning for the next chapter in Doug ‘The Thug’ Glatt’s story ever since. Well, it won’t be long before the Halifax Highlanders return to the silver screen – for those in Canada, at least – with Goon: Last Of The Enforcers now teetering on the verge of release. Things aren’t looking too good for hockey’s hardest hitter, who is sidelined following a gnarly injury. In his wake, Wyatt Russell’s boisterous newcomer Anders Cain threatens to take the Halifax Highlanders in a new direction, »

Today, hockey is a much faster sport than it was two decades ago. Goal scoring has taken the lead over bone-crunching body checks and ice-based throwdowns. But if you’re longing for the day when big burly guys on skates punched each other, “Goon: Last Of The Enforcers” will bring back that rock ’em, sock ’em feeling.
Jay Baruchel directs this sequel to the surprise hit “Goon,” bringing together Sean William Scott, Alison Pill, Liev Schreiber, Elisha Cuthbert, and Wyatt Russell for the latest chapter in the saga of Doug Glatt who gets back on the ice to face his greatest foe yet.
