'Beirut' Review: Jon Hamm Adds Class, Movie-Star Charisma to Spy Thriller

Espionage thrillers have it rough these days, what with contemporary headlines beating anything Hollywood can cook up. Still, Beirut has an undeniable retro appeal: It's 1982 in Lebanon, the eve of Israel's invasion. A hostage situation is pulling Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), a former U.S. diplomat in Beirut, back into a spycraft shitstorm he'd practically kill to avoid. He's been mediating low-level labor disputes in Boston, spending his spare time in bars using booze to blast away memories of what happened to him on the job a decade before.

Murder, monsters and massage: seven Mother's Day films to avoid at all costs

Planning some light viewing on Sunday? If so, beware: not all movies tagged with ‘mother’ on streaming sites are entirely family-friendly

We’ve all been there: you type “Transsiberian” into a streaming service once and spend the next three weeks fighting off the Transformers franchise. Botched film recommendations have been a thing since the VHS era. Remember the episode of One Foot in the Grave when Victor Meldrew discovers Mrs Warboys is a Mork & Mindy fan and accidentally rents Alien? Given the prevalence of the “because you watched …” algorithm, here are seven films tagged “mother” that should be avoided at all costs this Sunday. Do not add to basket, and be prepared to lunge for the remote should mum’s thumb hover over play. Caution: spoilers.

Session 9 Director Brad Anderson Set to Direct Fate From Rogue One Writer Gary Whitta

Brad Anderson (Session 9) has a new film project lined up called Fate, which he will direct from a script by Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).

According to Deadline, the story follows a character named Virgil who is described as "a man on the edge, all too familiar with the back alleys of Hong Kong." They go on to reveal that, "His life, or what’s left of it, is turned upside down when he is approached by a mysterious woman seeking his help. "

That's all we have to share about the film so far, and the story could go in any direction from there. I'm a fan of Anderson. He really impressed me with his psychological horror thriller Session 9, and since then he's made films such as The Machinist, Transsiberian, The Call, and Stonehearst Asylum.

I really hope that this next film of his is good.

Werewolves, Vampires, Witches, A Giant Pig And An Even Gianter Gun In New Guardians Of The Night Trailer

There aint nothing undead that can't be made undeader. That appears to be the guiding principal behind Emilis Velyvis' Guardians Of The Night, a bit of Underworld meets Night Watch action-horror out of Russia. The story is familiar enough - a courier stumbles across the reality of supernatural creatures hidden in plain sight in Moscow and is recruited by the organization tasked with keeping them under control - so it's really all about execution. And Velyvis - who, as an interesting side note, actually had a bit part as an actor in Brad Anderson's Transsiberian - seems pretty solid on that front. We ran a first teaser for this one back in April and it has now been followed by a full trailer, with English...

The Man in the High Castle Recap: A Known Subversive

The Man in the High Castle Recap: A Known Subversive
It doesn't seem coincidental that The Man in the High Castle's best episode yet was shot by James Hawkinson, the visual artist who turned Hannibal into one of television's most striking shows, and directed by Brad Anderson, the filmmaker behind Session 9, Transsiberian and The Machinist. The writing and performances were top-notch in this episode, but I don't think it would be as much of a success without Hawkinson's visual fluency and Anderson's confident hand."Truth" begins where the last episode left off: Smith (Rufus Sewell) has caught Joe (Luke Kleintank) rifling through the folders in his home office. As Smith stands in the doorway, he expresses his disappointment in a deeply menacing way. He orders Joe to tell him everything that happened in Canon City: "Truth time. Tell me about the girl." Meanwhile, Juliana (Alexa Davalos) has discovered that her stepfather Arnold (Daniel Roebuck) works in a surveillance
