Zach Braff's #GoingInStyle Trailer & Poster

Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff’s comedy “Going in Style.”



Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.

The film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret (“Tommy,” “Carnal Knowledge”) as Annie, a grocery cashier who’s been checking Al out in more ways than one. Joey King (“Wish I Was Here”) stars as Joe’s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn; with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (“Crash”) as FBI Agent Hamer; and Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future” trilogy) as the guys’ lodge buddy, Milton. John Ortiz (“S…

Movie Review: #CollateralBeauty

The wholly unethical Collateral Beauty is a manipulative affront to common decency.
WARNING: Massive Spoilers Ahead Review by Matt Cummings
If you've ever lost a child or experienced the tragic death of someone, Collateral Beauty is supposed to offer a cathartic means for release and reflection. Unfortunately, it also tries to play with our emotions while manipulating its lead through wholly unethical means, only to learn that angels like money too. And for that ultimate of movie sins, it earns my pick as one of the worst movies of the year.

Having endured the death of his 7 year old daughter due to brain cancer, Howard (Will Smith) is now a broken man. His ad agency, one of the most respected in New York, is on the brink of being sold, while Howard writes angry letters to Death, Time, and Love. He mails them, hops on his bike, and then proceeds to his job, only to build complex domino structures while his partners (Kate Winslet, Michael Pena, and Edward Norton) helplessly l…

Movie Review: @RogueOneMovie

Gareth Edwards' sci-fi epic pulls at our Star Wars heartstrings.
Review by Matt Cummings
If the idea of seeing one Star Wars movie every year until time's end was your version of a wet dream, get in line. However, I wouldn't blame you if all the recent news about troubles on the set of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story might have dulled your anticipation. Not to worry: this is a terrific entry into the film franchise, solidly establishing itself above the prequels with a memorable collection of nods, tips-of-the-helmet, and incredible space sequences that should relieve everyone's concerns that characters outside the Skywalker timeline weren't worthy of our attention or hard-earned cash.

As the hand of The Galactic Empire continues to sweep across the galaxy, the Rebellion learns of a new weapons project, code-named The Death Star, a space station that can destroy entire planets. They also learn that its chief builder Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelson) might be sympatheti…

Lin-Manuel Miranda To Work On "Vivo" Animated Film

Lin-Manuel Miranda already has enough on his schedule to keep seven people busy, but he's long since proven he can handle spinning a few creative plates at once. And this latest project is actually an old plan coming back to life. He'll work on an animated movie called Vivo for Sony Pictures Animation.

And this one could be a little easier in terms of workload, because a lot of his creative chores have been done. Vivo, which focuses – or did, in its previous incarnation – on a capuchin monkey with adventure in his heart who travels from Havana to Miami to fulfill his destiny, was set up at DreamWorks Animation about six years ago. That was during Miranda's acclaim for his pre-Hamilton musical In The Heights, but as so often seems to happen, it couldn't quite get moving.

So now the movie, which already has 11 songs from Miranda in place, will get a new script from his Heights collaborator Quiara Alegría Hudes and Kirk De Micco is on board to direct. And it won't hit…

Sebastian Stan Joins Margot Robbie In "I, Tonya"

Put together by Margot Robbie as one of the projects from her production company, Tonya Harding pic I, Tonya is now aiming to shoot soon, with Craig Gillespie in the director's seat. And they've found someone for a key role in the story: Sebastian Stan will be Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly.

Initially viewed as a plucky underdog who'd escaped grinding poverty to rise to the top of the figure-skating world, Harding famously went full Seagal on her closest rival at a championships in Detroit. Her husband of the time, Gillooly hired Shane Stant to attack Nancy Kerrigan with a police baton, leaving her with a badly bruised, but not broken leg.

Riffing on baseball’s 'Shot Heard Around The World', tabloid types immediately dubbed the incident 'The Whack Heard Round The World'.
