Wrath of Man Review ' It’s entertaining, it’s dark, & it’s typical Guy Ritchie! So I dug the hell out of it!'

THE HUNT Trailer Movie of the year is the one nobody has seen … yet

Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal ( Betty Gilpin , GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank ) at the center of it all.

Watchmen TV Series Heading To HBO

Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen was such a seminal work that no one believed that it could ever be adapted to another medium. Naturally Zack Snyder proved that it could be done (though some might argue that point) with the 2009 movie, and now Damon Lindelof has been given the green light for an HBO TV pilot, with the order including additional scripts. Lindelof himself leaked the news via an Instagram image of a Watchmen statue on the desk of the writers room. A day later, HBO confirmed the news. The Snyder film, like the comic book mini-series that inspired it, was initially viewed as a one off with a beginning, middle and an end. No sequels, no prequels. The story had been told. Apparently not. DC Comics launched a number of mini-series (totaling 37 issues) in 2012 under the umbrella title Before Watchmen, which focused on the title's individual characters. And now there's the potential new series from Lindelof, who had produced The Leftovers for the cable

First Images From Disney's #Tomorrowland Starring George Clooney

EW land the first images from sci-fi/fantasy adventure Tomorrowland starring George Clooney. It never was, but is always near, can never be seen, but will always show up—although it disappears the moment it arrives… The solution to this old riddle is simple: Tomorrow. But for those awaiting a glimpse of Disney’s upcoming sci-fi/fantasy adventure Tomorrowland, the answer is not so elusive. Here’s an exclusive preview of what’s-to-come from the deeply shrouded new Brad Bird film. “We begin our movie asking what did [the future] used to be?” Bird says. “What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way.” A Florida girl who dreams of the future while watching the launchpads of Cape Canaveral being disassembled goes exploring one day and, after landing in a bit of trouble, finds herself in possession of a mysterious pin. Touching it reveals a vision of a place that may not be a different world but simply a bette

TV Review: The Leftovers "The Prodigal Son Returns"

TV Review: The Leftovers "The Prodigal Son Returns" By: Brandon Wolfe From the start, ‘ The Leftovers ’ has struggled with trying to figure out just what it wants to be. Though the series was sold on a humdinger of a premise – 2% of the world’s population vanishes inexplicably into thin air – the meat of the show has dealt with the small town of Mapleton and its mopey, grief-riddled denizens. That tug-of-war between that tantalizingly fantastic high concept and the low-stakes misery of its characters, with the misery handily winning out, has led to an inert, relentlessly unenjoyable viewing experience. The series could just as easily be about the aftermath of a mass shooting or a pipeline explosion to the same effect. It’s a series about sadness and loss, and little else. Its faux-profundity and all-thumbs approach to symbolism do little to assist with the fact that ‘The Leftovers’ is a vehicle running on the wispiest of fumes. In the immediate aftermath of Patti’s sp

Disney's #TOMORROWLAND & #BIGHERO6 Coming To New York Comic Con

Miller ). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a b

TV Review: #TheLeftovers “The Garveys at Their Best”

TV Review: The Leftovers “The Garveys at Their Best” By: Brandon Wolfe Initially, and not a little bit jarringly, “ The Garveys at Their Best ” seems to present us with exactly what its title promises. When we open, on Kevin going for a run, sneaking a smoke from a pack he’s surreptitiously hidden under a mailbox before heading home, nothing seems terribly out of the ordinary. What throws us off is what we find when Kevin arrives home: Laurie, dressed in regular, non-white clothes and speaking. With actual words coming out of her mouth. She even has a pleasant demeanor and is warm to both Kevin and a bubbly, singing Jill as they all shuffle off to their daily routines. For this is a flashback episode to the final days before the Departure changed everything for all of these people. We also peek in on Nora’s previous life to find an encouraging husband and a pair of adorable children. Everyone’s so happy. It’s weird. The kicker of “The Garveys at Their Best” is how it appears a

TV Review: The Leftovers “Cairo”

TV Review: The Leftovers “Cairo” By: Brandon Wolfe It would appear that Kevin Garvey is a bit more messed up in the head than we quite realized. While we had previously been made aware of gaps in his memory, resulting in those lost shirts and the appearance of that irate dog tied to his front porch, we see this week that Kevin’s lost time appears to be more dangerous than anyone thought. Awoken by Dean the dog-shooting mystery man (whose appearances often seem to coincide with Kevin’s forgotten escapades), Kevin finds himself in the middle of the woods. When he asks Dean how he got there, a confused and somewhat hurt Dean fills him in: the two of them kidnapped Patti, the silently snide leader of the Guilty Remnant, the night before, roughed her up and tied her to a chair in a cabin Kevin that visited as a child. Dean wants to know what happens next, but a stunned Kevin is still trying to process what happened before. Kevin implores Patti that he is sorry for what he has don

TV Review: The Leftovers “Solace For Tired Feet”

TV Review: The Leftovers “Solace For Tired Feet” By: Brandon Wolfe Man, is this a hard show to watch. Not in the sense that it’s depressing or challenging, qualities that could make its difficulty to endure commendable in a way (and qualities that the show clearly aspires toward), but in its inertia and frustrating lack of focus. As I’ve stated time and again, ‘The Leftovers’ has a core premise that could make for a fantastic television series, but this is not that series. This series is a flummoxing mass of uncooked dough, a collection of murky, half-formed ideas that aren’t as tantalizing as its creators believe they are. It is, in short, very much a Damon Lindelof show, and I mean that in the worst way. There really isn’t a good way to mean that, but I want it to be clear that of all the possible ways it could be meant, I mean the very worst one. After last week’s surprisingly solid outing, which centered its focus around Nora Durst, who has quickly emerged as the most intere

TV Review: The Leftovers “Gladys”

TV Review: The Leftovers “Gladys” By: Brandon Wolfe For a series so often awash in inertia, “Gladys” opens with a visceral gutpunch. A pair of Guilty Remnant members stop at a gas station so one of the women can use the restroom. The older woman waiting outside, whom we will later learn is the eponymous Gladys, is grabbed by a pair of masked assailants, who take her out to the woods nearby, affix her to a tree with masking tape and proceed to stone her to death with large rocks, blood profusely gushing from the woman’s head. The GR does not speak, but with the life draining out of her, Gladys breaks this vow in order to plead for her life. This falls on deaf ears, as the men chuck the last rock at her head, delivering a fatal blow. This is an ugly scene, unnecessarily so. While the GR have been such a frustrating force, both to the characters within the show and to us out in the viewing audience, seeing this helpless older woman bludgeoned to death is very difficult to watch. I have
