Written and directed by Marti Noxon, To the Bone is an occasionally harrowing drama geared towards the Ya crowd from a filmmaker that knows the terrain well, having written Fright Night and I Am Number Four, as well as TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Glee, and Angel. Exploring eating disorders, the film is fronted by a strong performance by Lilly Collins as Ellen, a 20-year old artist from an upper middle-class household living with this battle. While the script is occasionally quite frank and knows the territory it’s exploring well, it falls back on the same tropes you’d expect from a network TV series, creating artificial drama and an attempt at a loveably quirky character that derails the entire picture.

After a 15 year hiatus, the iconic Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) returns in Paramount's highly-anticipated sequel XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. While we still have two more weeks until this hits theaters, the studio has debuted a new clip chocked full of action, featuring one of presumably many death-defying stunts by Xander Cage. And it proves that one does not need snow in order to ski.
Paramount Pictures debuted this clip on the studio's YouTube page, which shows a number of security guards trying to talk Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) down from a massive tower. Naturally, Xander comes down, in his own way, leaping from the top wearing skis, proving that Xander Cage can pretty much do anything. This is just one of numerous fascinating stunts that will be featured in this action-packed epic.
