Ten Best Political Thrillers

  • Cinelinx
With politics on our minds for Election Day, we've created this list of the best politically-motivated films. We promise they will cause less anxiety and be more fun than actual politics.

Although ultimately important, politics can lead to conflict and stress. Also, bureaucracy in action can be just plain boring. Thankfully, when Hollywood makes films about politics, they tend to be exciting, thought-provoking, and empowering. Full of juicy conspiracy theories, shedding light on real life events, and empowering the viewer to make a difference in the world around them, political thrillers are an important and entertaining sub-genre.

To help get your mind off of the turmoil that is election day, I put together this list of the best political thrillers. To be considered for this list, I tried to only consider films where the politics are the main motivation for the films’ plot. Here, I define politics as a struggle

New 3D Photo from Pet Sematary (2019) Features a Chilling Funeral Procession

  • DailyDead
One of the creepiest parts about the titular location in the new Pet Sematary (based on Stephen King's novel of the same name) is its backstory. Maintained by grieving children wearing all-too-real animal masks, the Pet Sematary is filled with graves that have the haunting look of being made by young hands. There are tombstones carved out of old milk jugs and weathered wood, and there's a certain kind of dark magic that hangs in the air. It's truly a hair-raising place, and you can get a sense of that spine-tingling atmosphere in a new 3D photo from the film that features a group of children on their way to the Pet Sematary.

Shared on the official Pet Sematary Facebook page on Halloween, the new 3D photo can be viewed below, and the funeral procession seemingly comes to life when you hover your arrow above the photo.

A new UK trailer has arrived online for writer-director Steven Knight’s upcoming thriller Serenity which stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong, and Diane Lane; watch it here…

From the creative mind of Oscar nominee, Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller.

His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead.

6 Movies and TV Shows Inspired by Gangster Whitey Bulger, From ‘The Departed’ to ‘The Blacklist’ (Photos)

  • The Wrap
James “Whitey” Bulger, the notorious Boston crime boss who was serving a life sentence in prison and who also served as an informant with the FBI, died on Tuesday at the age of 89. His story though has inspired a handful of gangster characters across film and TV, including one direct adaptation of his life story.

The Departed” (2006)

Jack Nicholson’s role as mob boss Frank Costello in Martin Scorsese’s Boston gangster drama “The Departed” is very loosely based on Whitey Bulger, though Scorsese’s film is actually a remake of the Hong Kong film “Infernal Affairs” from 2002.

Brotherhood” (2006 – 2008)

Jason Isaacs and Jason Clarke played two Irish-American brothers, one a crime lord and the other a politician, in a drama inspired by the relationship between Whitey Bulger and his brother Billy. “Brotherhood” however is set in Providence, Rhode Island as opposed to Boston.

The Blacklist” (2013-present)

Bo Report: ‘A Star is Born’ wins again as ‘Halloween’ thrills

Jamie Lee Curtis in ‘Halloween.’

John Carpenter’s 40-year-old Halloween franchise traditionally has been much more potent in the Us than in the rest of the world, but Jamie Lee Curtis’ visit to Australia last week helped ensure a sturdy opening for the latest iteration.

However not surprisingly, the Universal/Blumhouse horror movie could not hold a candle to Warner BrosA Star is Born, which reigned supreme in its second weekend.

Sony’s comedy adventure Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween launched well below the predecessor. Transmission’s Beautiful Boy fared Ok at upmarket cinemas but struggled elsewhere while Icon’s Ghost Stories bombed, mirroring its domestic fate.

Catherine Scott’s Backtrack Boys, an alternate content release, and Heath Davis’ Book Week kicked off with respectable figures at some locations on Saturday and Sunday (see separate story).

The top 20 titles harvested $12.9 million, down 6 per cent on the prior weekend according to Numero.

Baltasar Kormakur in Talks to Direct MGM Thriller ‘Deeper’
Everest” filmmaker Baltasar Kormakur is in talks to direct the MGM thriller “Deeper,” sources tell Variety.

“Bright” scribe Max Landis penned the script and will also produce with David Goyer, Kevin Turren, and Addictive Pictures.

The film follows a former astronaut, who was hired to take a submersible to the deepest part of the ocean. Supernatural events transpire as the vehicle gets closer to its destination. Production is expected to start this spring.

MGM landed the project in 2016 when Bradley Cooper was attached to star. At one point, “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot was also in talks to join the cast. That version almost came to fruition with “White God” helmer Kornel Mundruczo, but they both exited the movie after Cooper’s schedule couldn’t come together. The studio shelved the project until they could find the right director to come on board. MGM hopes to add an actor with

Bo Report: Dazzling debut for Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga in ‘A Star is Born’

A Star is Born.’ (Photo: Warner Bros)

While Hollywood films usually open day-and-date in Australia, staggering the release here can a smart tactic, and so it proved last weekend for A Star is Born.

Warner Bros’ musical romance took $42.9 million in its first weekend in the Us three weeks ago, an impressive figure that was dwarfed by Sony’s unforeseen blockbuster Venom, which grabbed $80 million.

Avoiding that head-to-head confrontation in Oz paid off handsomely as the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga movie had a stellar debut, WB’s biggest of the year so far.

Meanwhile romantic comedy Badaai Ho drew plenty of Bollywood fans and Lorna Tucker’s biopic Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist and Ukrainian dark comedy Donbass failed to cut through.

Stephen McCallum’s crime drama 1% had a modest start but is already a big success commercially, with sales to the Us and more than a dozen major markets,

How Claire Foy's Stunning Performance in First Man Helps Tell the
First Man is unquestionably one of award season's buzziest films. Although there's been plenty of glowing words tossed in the direction of both leading man Ryan Gosling and director Damien Chazelle, the lion's share of praise seems to be directed at Claire Foy, who gives a searing performance as Neil Armstrong's outspoken and passionate wife, Janet Armstrong. In order to give us an inside look at just how this tragic, incredible true story came together, The Crown's star hopped on the phone with us and shed light on everything from getting her portrayal of Janet just right to how she perfected her onscreen dynamic with Gosling.

The Aftermath Trailer Throws Keira Knightley Into a Passionate Post-War Affair

Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for The Aftermath. If there is one thing that has seemingly been done to death, yet also seems to find a way to still be interesting much of the time, It's World War II movies. In this case, we're looking at the drama just after the war ends, which is something that isn't explored nearly as often. Especially in the way that it's being explored here, which layers in a scandalous affair to go along with the usual wartime drama.

The trailer kicks off with a couple reunited in the ashes of war and things are clearly a bit uncomfortable for what we assume are complicated reasons that go beyond just trying to recover from the worst war in human history. Things get even more uncomfortable rather quickly as this couple winds up moving into a luxurious house that the British government has
