As expected, this excessive lifestyle catches up with her forcing her to face the consequences, and face them, she does,Read More

Zac Efron is in way over his head in the first trailer released for John F. Kennedy assassination drama “Parkland”, which will be released just in time for the 50th anniversary of the President’s death.

The cast also features newcomer Jeremy Strong as gunman Lee Harvey Oswald, James Badge Dale Lee’s brotherRead More

We expect during promo rounds for this movie, Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth will spend a great amount of time speaking of their admiration for Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 version of Shakespeare’s classic “Romeo and Juliet” and how they’re in no way trying to top it, and judging from the first trailer for Carlo Carlei’s new take on the tragic romance, they’d be wise to make that clear up front. Forget Luhrmann’s modern twist on the tale, Carlei’s vision clearly takes much more after Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 traditionally set film, whichRead More
