Movie Review: #AmericanMade

Tom Cruise is at his best in American Made. And he never throws a punch.
Review by Matt Cummings
If many elements behind the biopic American Made feel way too familiar (title cards at the end, news footage, doctored photos showing our hero rubbing elbows), you might also find yourself doing the unthinkable: forgiving Director Doug Liman and Actor Tom Cruise. This is easily one of the best biopic films of the year, fueled by an all-out performance by Cruise, bolstered by a highly stylized feel, and filled with just enough levity to offset what soon becomes a very nasty and gripping affair.

Starting in the late 1970's, American Made follows the story of former TWA pilot Barry Seal (Tom Cruise) who decides the drudgery of commercial airlines is less appealing that he imagined, especially when he's courted by the CIA agent Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson) to take low-flying pictures of South American drug lords. Initially very successful, Seal is also recruited by the up-and-coming…

Movie Review: #BattleOfTheSexes

Battle of the Sexes is solid, well-acted, but misses the bigger - and perhaps Oscar-winning - point.
Review by Matt Cummings
When tennis players Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs took to the floor of the Houston Astrodome in 1973, it did far more than bring home the ratings. The moment apparently electrified the country, spawning deep discussions about women's roles in the household and at the workplace. It lead to an eventual melting of barriers between the sexes in a way that no single event had done before. And while Battle of the Sexes relishes in this moment, it centers too much of its story around the match itself, keeping the better story - that one player struggling with much more than beating the other - on the sidelines.

Professional tennis player Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) is at the top of her sport, a dominant presence on the court who detests male players earning more money at tournaments and receiving more accolades. Her boss Jack Kramer (Bill Pullman) doesn&#…

Dr. Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljian) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly taken under his wing.

New Poster For The #DarkestHour

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.

Director: Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Hanna,” “Pride & Prejudice,” “Anna Karenina”)

Writer: Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”)

Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald…

Underworld TV Series In The Works

After 14 years of either directing or producing the Underworld movies, you might think Len Wiseman would be ready to move on from the universe where vampires battle werewolves and their own internal struggles. Wrongo! He's planning to bring the idea to the small screen.

The movies, of course, saw Kate Beckinsale squeeze into a variety of seemingly uncomfortable rubber suits and run around shooting/fighting like a badass as Selene, a vampire who works as a Death Dealer. She started off by killing the lycans who allegedly slaughtered her family, but things got more complicated when she fell for a man who showed lycan traits. According to Wiseman, the show's tone will be very different – and he's hoping to place it with a premium cable channel stateside or one of the streaming services to allow for the changes. "The series will be a pretty big departure from the films," Wiseman tells Deadline. "I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comi…

It Sequel Arrives In 2019

Given the success of It, we're half expecting Pennywise the clown to show up with some shiny new gold teeth and maybe a more luxurious balloon. But regardless of what the central terror does in the intervening years, the follow-up to the first film will hit theaters in 2019.

Andy Muschietti will be back to direct the adaptation of the second half of Stephen King's book, which follows the heroic Loser's Club as they return to Derry, Maine after 27 years. They thought they'd escaped the place and its nightmare creature, but a devastating phone call brings them all back. The new movie will also feature flashbacks to the kids' story too.

It has been scaring away the competition at the box office for weeks (it was finally unseated by Kingsman: The Golden Circle this weekend) and snatched a host of records, including the largest opening for a horror film in the States, largest opening for a movie based on a book, and is the most successful cinematic scare ever in the US…

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Roosevelt

Though Martin Scorsese is currently gathering a team of his former collaborators for The Irishman, Leonardo DiCaprio is not among them. Fear not, though; the pair has several films in development and is adding another, a drama of former US President Theodore Roosevelt, called, to little surprise, Roosevelt.

DiCaprio has been interested in playing the man for a few years now, but a previous attempt stalled in limbo. Now, though, Scott Bloom is writing a new draft, with Scorsese adding it to his directorial to-do list and Paramount has snapped up the chance to make the movie through its first-look deal with DiCaprio's Appian Way company.

Roosevelt's life is certainly interesting enough to be worth movi-fication, given his military exploits, and a political track that saw him rocket through the New York governorship and then to vice president under William McKinley, rising to the top job after McKinley was assassinated in 1901. He became known for his conservation work, setting …

NEW CLIP From #Marshallmovie

A leader of men. A man of justice. A Supreme Court legend. On October 13, 2017, Chadwick BosemanChadwick Boseman (Black Panther) is Thurgood Marshall.

In this BRAND NEW CLIP featuring Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, and Josh Gad, see why Marshall went down in history books as a man who changed America.



Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, MARSHALL, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.

RELEASE DATE: October 13, 2017
