TYREL Official Trailer

TYREL follows Tyler, who joins his friend on a trip to the Catskills for a weekend birthday party with several people he doesn’t know. As soon as they get there, it’s clear that (1) he’s the only black guy, and (2) it’s going to be a weekend of heavy drinking. Although Tyler is welcomed, he can’t help but feel uneasy in “Whitesville.” The combination of all the testosterone and alcohol starts to get out of hand, and Tyler’s precarious situation starts to feel like a nightmare.

Starring Jason Mitchell, Christopher Abbott, Michael Cera, Caleb Landry Jones, Michael Zegan, Philip Ettinger, Ann Dowd,  Reg E. Cathey

Magnolia Pictures will release TYREL in theaters December 5, 2018

First Look: Images of First Man

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost—on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (SpotlightThe Post), the epic drama of leading under the pressure of grace and tragedy is produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight SagaThe Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Isaac Klausner (Love, Simon) and Chazelle. Steven Spielberg, Adam Merims and Singer executive produce, while DreamWorks Pictures co-finances the film. http://www.firstman.com

“If Beale Street Could Talk” Official Poster and Trailer Released

Based on the James Baldwin novel, If Beale Street Could Talk tells of the joys and struggles of life in 1970s Harlem.  Kiki Layne makes her theatrical debate in the role of  Tish Rivers. Only 19 years old, Rivers is soon to be a mother.  The father is artist  Alonzo Hunt (Stephan James).  In love since childhood, the couple dream of a life together.  Tragedy strikes when Hunt is imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit.

Academy Award Winner Barry Jenkins wrote and directed the film.  If Beale Street Could Talk is the first film Jenkins has worked on since he won an Oscar for his film, “Moonlight.” Jenkins worked magic in bringing to life Baldwin’s eloquent and poignant story telling.

Now more than ever, we need Baldwin and James to bring us hope that, in the end, love and humanity will win.

The official movie poster and trailer have been released to the public. If Beale Street Could Talk will be in theaters November 30th.

Entertainment Studios has released a new teaser for 47 METERS DOWN: THE NEXT CHAPTER, the sequel to the monster hit from last year that took a bite out of the independent box office. Johannes Roberts returns to the shark-infested waters as director.

Trailer: Active Measures, Film Reveals Putin’s Long Game with Trump

ACTIVE MEASURES, a film from director Jack Bryan that details a decades long connection between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, including shocking new reporting on Trump’s dealings with Russian mob figures, and expert analysis on the largest and most effectively executed espionage operation in history—Russia’s meddling in the 2016 US Presidential Election. The film made its world premiere at this year’s Hot Docs, and will be released on August 31, day and date with exclusive theatrical engagements in New York and Los Angeles and on digital platforms.

In ACTIVE MEASURES, Bryan exposes a 30-year history of covert political warfare devised by Vladmir Putin to disrupt, influence, and ultimately control world events, democratic nations through cyber attacks, propaganda campaigns, and corruption. In the process, the filmmakers follow a trail of money, real estate, mob connections, and on the record confessions to expose an insidious plot that leads directly back to The White House. Unravelling the true depth and scope of “the Russia story,” as we have come to know it, it is a jarring reminder that some conspiracies hide in plain sight. ACTIVE MEASURES is essential viewing in today’s world.

The film features original interviews with experts on Russia and Putin, including: Senator John McCain, Hillary Clinton, former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Steven Hall (former CIA Chief of Russia Operations), author Michael Isikoff, John Podesta (Chair, Hillary for America, Founder, Center for American Progress), Jeremy Bash (former CIA Chief of Staff and Pentagon Chief of Staff), James Woolsey (former CIA director), Evan McMullin (2016 Presidential candidate), and many more. Produced by Shooting Films’ Bryan, Laura DuBois, and Marley Clements, ACTIVE MEASURES was co-written by Bryan and Clements.

“When we embarked on this project we thought we’d find a scandal but what we uncovered was the greatest threat to democracy in almost a century. It is impossible to understand what is happening today unless you know how it started and why. Once you do the news becomes terrifyingly predictable,” said director Jack Bryan.

 

Sacha Baron Cohen Trumps the Country in New Showtime Series

When it comes to comedian and actor Sacha Baron Cohen, you never truly know what you’re going to get.

You might get Borat, the Golden Globe winning Turkish character fresh off the boat. You could get Brüno, the shameless, flamboyant gay Austrian in a cheetah-print thong. Maybe you’ll be lucky if Admiral General Aladeen shows up and dumps an urn full of ashes onto you. If all else fails, maybe white rapper Ali G will make an appearance.

Cohen is known for pulling off these fictitious characters with extreme dedication and commitment to the roles. In his newest venture, “Who is America?” for SHOWTIME, Cohen takes a satirical yet hysterical investigation on America and the loudest voices in it.

The first episode was released on July 15 and saw Cohen playing Erran Morad, a Freddie Mercury-looking Israeli anti-terrorism expert with a plan to arm kindergarteners with loaded guns as a means to combat gun violence. His proposed program, ‘Kinderguardians,” aims to put guns in the hands of kindergarten children.

“Who is America?” is television that capitalizes the climate of fear in the current political environment and turns real life conflicts over hotbed issues like gun control into comedic sketches with its participants not in on the joke. The series will also see Cohen, in character, interview O.J. Simpson and Sarah Palin in future episodes.

“A Simple Favor” Releases Trailer

“A Simple Favor” sees Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect”) as Stephanie who befriends Emily (Blake Lively), a mysterious mother with a secretive past. When she goes missing, Kendrick must try to find out what secrets she was hiding from her.

Darcey Bell wrote the book for which the film is based and 20th Century Fox Film Corporation bought the screen rights to develop it before the book was even published. With a premise like massively popular “Gone Girl” and “The Girl on the Train,” it’s no surprise Fox jumped in on this project.

Aside from Kendrick and Lively (“Gossip Girl”), other actors in the lineup include Henry Golding (“The Travel Show”), Andrew Rannells (“Girls”), Linda Cardellini (“Freaks and Geeks”), and industry veteran Jean Smart (“Frasier”).

The trailer poses the question, “What happened to Emily?”

“A Simple Favor” is out September 14.
