Showtime’s Sports Documentary 'RINGSIDE' Trailer & Poster

Scarlett Johansson To Star In Rub & Tug

The last time they worked together, Scarlett Johansson and director Rupert Sanders made Ghost In The Shell. Their new collaboration could hardly be more different, as it'll tell the fascinating true-life tale of a woman who became a crime kingpin through owning massage parlors and more. And the title will raise more eyebrows than just the story alone: Rub & Tug.

Whether that name survives to cinema marquees is a question for another day, but for now, New Regency is happy to put up the money for Johansson to star and Sanders to direct Gary Spinelli's script. It'll follow the experiences of Jean Marie Gill, a larger-than-life character in 1970s Pittsburgh who took on the mob and ran a chain of illicit massage parlors offering prostitution, plus an anabolic steroid ring that helped power NFL team the Pittsburgh Steelers. And she did it all with the help of her allies in the gay community, often dressing as a man to help her cause. In addition to her criminal activities, the film will also chart her fiery romance with girlfriend Cynthia.

Johansson has been working on Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit and will be back as Natasha Romanoff in the next Avengers film, while Marvel also develops a stand-alone film for the character.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. A new trailer, images and poster are now available. The trailer features Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Finley Hobbins and Nico Parker.



Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.

Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland.

Who Is Pete Davidson 'The King of Staten Island' Featurette

Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow, HBO’s Euphoria) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar® winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys—Oscar (Ricky Velez, Master of None), Igor (Moises Arias, Five Feet Apart) and Richie (Lou Wilson, TV’s The Guest Book)—and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley, Apple TV+’s The Morning Show).



But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr, Netflix’s F Is for Family), it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.

The film also stars Steve Buscemi as Papa, a veteran firefi…
