If you pick movies based on their freshness on Rotten Tomatoes, then Hell Or High Water is for you. Currently, the film has a 100% rating from 15 counted reviews. Looks a little suspicious, but it definitely has me intrigued.

Chris Pine and Ben Foster play brothers on a bank robbing spree, specifically the branches of the financial institution that is foreclosing on their family land. Standing in their way is a West Texas Ranger, played by Jeff Bridges, determined to take them down. I love a good cat and mouse flick.

Hell Or High Water Movie Synopsis

A story about the collision of the Old and New West, two brothers — Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger — come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement. As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest law man and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide.

Hell Or High Water breaks into theaters on August 19. Check out the trailer below.

The Devil Wears Prada Celebrates 10th Anniversary

devil-wears-prada-10th-anniversary

Believe it or not, 10 years ago today, The Devil Wears Prada hit theaters. Honestly, it feels like it was just yesterday. Perhaps, it’s due to the fact I watch the film at least twice a year. What can I say? I love me some cerulean sweaters 😉

The film based on Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel of the same name, not only was a commercial success but a critical favorite as well. It earned two Oscar nominations. One for Meryl Streep for Best Actress and another for Best Costume Design for Patricia Field.

Speaking of costumes, the film earns the distinction of being the most expensively costumed film in history. Not really that surprising given all the high couture labels worn by the cast. That epic coat montage scene alone must’ve cost a half a million.

In honor of the highly-quotable flick’s anniversary, check out some memorable clips below. If you think you know everything about the movie, test your knowledge with a couple of quizzes over at Entertainment Weekly and Buzzfeed. I’m embarrassed to say I got one question wrong on each. Guess, I’ll have to watch it again.

On January 15, 2009, shortly after taking off from New York’s LaGuardia Airport, US Airways Flight 1549 struck a flock of geese. The world then watched Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger guide his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers aboard.

As Sully was celebrated by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career. The upcoming drama, Sully, tells the untold story behind the “Miracle on The Hudson.”

Tom Hanks plays the titular character with Laura Linney taking on the role of Sully’s wife, Lorraine Sullenberger. Aaron Eckhart portrays Sully’s co-pilot, Jeff Skiles. Anna Gunn and Jerry Ferrara also star in the Clint Eastwood-directed film.

Sully lands into theaters on September 9. Check out the dramatic first trailer below.

2016-academy-awards-members

For two straight years #OscarsSoWhite became a trending topic after the Academy Awards announced their nominations featuring all-white performers in the acting categories. The Academy vowed to address the situation and implement a series of changes to the Academy’s voting membership to double the number of diverse members by 2020. It appears they’re putting their money where their mouth is.

The 2016 class, consisting of 683 invited new members, is the most diverse yet. The new class, an Academy record in size, is 46% female and 41% people of color. Should all the invitees accept the honor, the number of women members moves from 25% to 27%, while the members of color jumps from 8% to 11%.

“This class continues our long-term commitment to welcoming extraordinary talent reflective of those working in film today,” wrote Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “We encourage the larger creative community to open its doors wider, and create opportunities for anyone interested in working in this incredible and storied industry.”

Check out all the potential new members below.

trolls-movie-trailer

Trolls is the latest beloved toy brand to head to the silver screen. If the adaptation does half as well as its catchy theme song, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” courtesy of Justin Timberlake, the animated film should do quite well at the box office.

Not only did Timberlake curate the accompanying soundtrack, he’s also voicing one of the characters. In addition to JT, Dreamworks enlisted an all-star cast to bring the Trolls to life in the animated film. Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Russell Brand, Kunal Nayaar and Icona Pop are just some of the names involved.

Trolls Movie Synopsis

From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks’ Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comedicly pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.

Trolls arrives in theaters on November 4. Check out the first trailer below. Justin’s hit single really sells the film.

bridget-joness-baby-trailer

Keeping it real, the first trailer for Bridget Jones’s Baby, released a couple of months ago, was a bit of a letdown. The magic and charm from the first couple of films were nowhere to be found. Thankfully, the powers-that-be returned back to the drawing board and pieced together a much better trailer. This one has much more amusing bits.

It’s been over a decade since the last film, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, hit theaters. Apparently, it wasn’t happily ever after for our heroine. Once again, she’s single but this around, she’s also knocked up. Problem is, she doesn’t know who the baby daddy is. Oh, Bridge!

Bridget Jones’s Baby reunites Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth for the third installment. Joining the franchise is Patrick Dempsey who fills in for a missing Hugh Grant. Emma Thompson, who plays Bridget’s doctor, appears to be the scene-stealer in the film.

Bridget Jones’s Baby Movie Synopsis

After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones’s (Zellweger) “happily ever after” hasn’t quite gone according to plan. Fortysomething and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong?

Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.

Bridget Jones’s Baby arrives in theaters on September 16. Check out the new trailer below.

the-9th-life-of-louis-drax

Fans anxiously waiting for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, can get their Jamie Dornan shirtless fix in the upcoming film, The 9th Life of Louis Drax. The 34-year-old Irish stud gets a little steamy with his co-star, Sarah Gadon. I’m assuming there’s no S&M, but you never know 😉

The upcoming supernatural thriller, directed by Alexandre Aja, is based on Liz Jensen’s best-selling novel of the same title. It centers on the life of an unlucky boy, Louis Drax, who experiences numerous accidents throughout his young life. On his 9th birthday, he is a victim of a near-fatal fall. Naturally, the suspicious events leads to a police investigation.

The 9th Life of Louis Drax Movie Synopsis

After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax [Aiden Longworth] plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of Louis’ near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father Peter [Aaron Paul], acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal [Jamie Dornan] uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’ seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’ mother, Natalie [Sarah Gadon]. As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.

Aaron Paul, Oliver Platt and Barbara Hershey round out the cast. The 9th Life of Louis Drax spooks moviegoers on September 2. Check out the suspenseful trailer below.

rihanna-sledgehammer

The last time Rihanna teamed up with Sia, the massive hit “Diamonds” was born. The two singers reunite for the potential new smash, “Sledgehammer.” And no, it’s not a cover of Fifth Harmony’s underrated single. Instead, it’s an original composition for the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack.

Reportedly, the track will play during the credits of the Justin Lin-directed film. It’s absolutely perfect for the sequel. It’s epic, dramatic and soaring. If this doesn’t do damage on radio and on the charts, I’ll be utterly shocked.

You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer…”, RiRi sings in the chorus. And that lyric couldn’t be more true. With “Work,” “Needed Me” and the Calvin Harris and Drake collabos “This Is What You Came For” and “Too Good” respectively, Rihanna is certainly having a sensational year.

Check out her latest below and share your thoughts after. Be sure to also watch the newly-released Star Trek: Beyond trailer which features the RiRi track.
