Annapurna Television is partnering with the Coen brothers on a limited series Western called “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” Sources tell Variety that Annapurna intends to pursue an innovative approach that could combine television and theatrical.
The Coens will produce “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” through their Mike Zoss Productions label. Megan Ellison and Annapurna Television’s president of television, Sue Naegle, will serve as executive producers.
“We are very excited to be working with Megan and Sue on this project,” the Coen brothers said in a statement to Variety.
It’s still unclear how theatrical distribution could play a part in the project, but the intent is to shoot “Buster Scruggs” as a miniseries. »

The Weinstein Company has released a new red band trailer for its upcoming drama Gold, which was initially slated to hit theaters on Christmas Day, before the studio pushed it to January 27. The film still did receive a limited awards-season qualifying run, with the film's title song "Gold," by Iggy Pop and Danger Mouse, receiving a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song. While we'll have to wait and see if it's nominated for any other awards at the Oscars or any other awards ceremonies, this age-restrictive trailer gives us a frenetic look inside this fast-paced world of gold prospecting.
Gold is the epic tale of one man's pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Starring Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. »

Check out Cineplex Magazine's 2017 movie preview!
In some ways, Trainspotting is not the type of movie that begs a sequel. The frenetic, scatological story of heroine addicts Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) was hailed as an indie gem when it was released in 1996, and needed no follow-up. But on the other hand, who better to catch up with than those chemical-addled misfits? Have they cleaned themselves up? Have they built enjoyable lives? Director Danny Boyle »

A long time ago in a completely different galaxy far, far away, lovable hemp enthusiast and Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey was the preferred name to join Star-Lord and the gang on their second interstellar adventure, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. But in a surprise move, the actor passed on James Gunn's highly anticipated Marvel sequel to join a brand new franchise alongside Idris Elba in Stephen King's The Dark Tower instead.
If it seemed like the riskier move for McConaughey at the time, it still might be considered so. Joining an already-established blockbuster series »
For a while, Matthew McConaughey was one of the top contenders for the lead role in Marvel’s sequel “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.” However, the Academy Award winner turned down the offer to be part of Marvel Cinematic Universe ensemble.

It came down to a choice between doing “Guardians” or the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower,” which he stars in alongside Idris Alba.

This review contains spoilers.
4.14 In The Uncertain Hour Before The Morning & 4.15 All His Angels
Of all the weeks to get ill, I—or the gods—picked the one that would require me to combine reviews on two episodes which are better talked about together than separately: In The Uncertain Hour Before The Morning and All His Angels.
This week and last week, we got to watch the last days of Ragnar Lothbrok. And if he did not die sword in hand, that does not mean that he not go out as a Viking should—especially this Viking. After all, Fimmel »
