Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Vince Vaughn Joins Fighting With My Family

With shooting set to kick off shortly, Dwayne Johnson is continuing to play main cheerleader and PR rep for the new based-on-truth wrestling film he's producing and cameoing in. He's announced that Vince Vaughn will appear in Fighting With My Family.

Stephen Merchant is on script and directorial duty, basing the film on the real-life experiences of WWE star Paige (AKA Saraya-Jade Bevis Miller) and her family of professional wrestlers. The movie will see Nick Frost as her father a reformed gangster and former wrestler, his wife (Lena Headey) and their children, who make a living performing in tiny venues across the country. The parents want a better life for their children, and when the siblings get the chance to audition for the WWE, it seems the family dream is coming true and all their troubles will be solved. However, the brother and sister are about to learn that becoming a WWE superstar demands more than they ever imagined possible. Florence Pugh is playing Paige, with Jack Lowden as her brother Zak.

According to Johnson's Instagram post on the casting, Vaughn will be "playing a man who I know all too well and those of you who follow wrestling history know well too. The 80's wrestling star who squandered his money and opportunities because he didn't have the capacity to handle his fame. One bad decision after another, but these days he owns his past actions and does everything he can to give back to the wrestling business he loves." Start your specularisation now!

Inspired by the Channel 4 documentary on Paige and her family, The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family (which Johnson watched early one morning while shooting Fast 6 in London), this one comes from Film4 and MGM.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
