photo-2When Ben Affleck was named to play the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice many were skeptical of the Academy Winning director/writer on taking over the iconic role from Christian Bale. Even Affleck was wary donning on the mask and cape and after talking with Zack Snyder he still had questions about the role.

It wasn’t until filming that Affleck started to fully appreciate the creative synthesis between Snyder’s visual aesthetic and Frank Miller’s legendary take on the world weary Dark Knight. What also aided in Affleck’s confidence came from a chance encounter he and his son had with Bale at a costume store.

140285_5746For over three decades Don Johnson has been a mainstay on television screens all over the world. The Miami Vice and Nash Bridges star returns to network television with the new ABC nighttime soap Blood & Oil.

Back in 1984, Johnson became a worldwide star starring in the cop drama Miami Vice. When Miami Vice took off, the actor admittedly let the show’s success get the best of his ego and  he may have been a high maintenance actor at times.  With age comes wisdom and humility, and Johnson says he is so happy to be working on what could be another hit series.  (Click on the media bar below to hear Don Johnson)

Blood & Oil premieres Sunday September 27 on ABC.

Break Point

Jeremy Sisto does triple duty on Break Point as a producer, writer (he received story credit), and actor of this disarmingly charming comedy. The plotline centers on Jimmy, a misanthropic tennis player who enlists his estranged brother Darren (About a Boy’s David Walton) to serve as his doubles partner. Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) plays their father.

Sisto’s venture into producing came out of necessity. “Break Point was something I was trying to get made for many years,” says Sisto. “I was on a TV show (Suburgatory) at the time and I was trying to fit it in between hiatuses. It was a small window and maybe there were three years when there was the possibility that it would happen. It was a big letdown when it didn’t. Actually when I had no other producer attached to try to get the money, I had two months left before hiatus happen. I figured it was my last chance and I figured the project would be dead after the next hiatus.”

The film’s biggest trick is making Sisto look like a tennis star. Though Walton is adept at the sport, Sisto had to work much harder to round out into tennis form.

Break Point is now playing in select theaters and is also available on VOD.

124The iconic Walt Disney musical Mary Poppins opened in theatres August 27, 1964. The filmed turned Dame Julie Andrews into one of the most beloved movie stars to ever grace the silver screen. The film won five Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Andrews.

We had the honor to speak to the stage/screen legend over the years and she reflected on the night she won the coveted Oscar. It was definitely a night of surprises for Andrews, who was a fan of fellow nominee Anne Bancroft. (Click on the media bar below to hear Julie Andrews)

Many would be surprised to find out that there was talk of a sequel to Mary Poppins! Andrews wasn’t against the idea, but ultimately the studio decided it wouldn’t be a good idea, and Dame Andrews agrees with their final verdict. (Click on the media bar below to hear Julie Andrews)

Before We GoChris Evans makes is feature directing debut with Before We Go, a New York set comedy headlined by Evans and Alice Eve (Cold Comes The Night).

Nick (Evans) is a trumpeter who’s depressed over the prospect of meeting a former flame at a gathering, but his spirits are temporarily lifted when he comes to the rescue of a stranger (Eve) who has lost her purse. What begins as a chance encounter on a late Manhattan evolves into something entirely more profound for the pair, as they eventually find solace in their newfound friendship.

Though Evans has worked on his share of excellent productions, most notably Sunshine and Snowpiercer, the actor’s most recognized role is his continued work as Captain America in various Marvel films (and before that, he was Johnny Storm in two Fantastic Four movies).

During the Before We Go interviews, Evans talked about the creative advantages of working within the Marvel universe. Click on the media bar below to hear Chris Evans talk about how he’s grown as an actor through his Marvel experience:



Before We Go is now On Demand and opens in theaters September 4.

Miss You Already - Photo Credit: Nick WallDirector Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Thirteen, Red Riding Hood) collaborates with Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore in the new drama Miss You Already.

The narrative centers on Jess (Barrymore) and Milly (Collette), best friends whose lives are profoundly changed after Milly is diagnosed with cancer. The best friendships survive through storm and weather, and with two fine actresses leading the way, expect the film to have its share of tear inducing moments. It’s also great to see Barrymore back on the screen, the three movies she’s shot since 2010 (Going the Distance, Big Miracle, and Blended) haven’t had the dramatic import of 2009’s Grey Gardens.

The project premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival in the World Premiere Category and hits theaters November 6. Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine, Tyson Ritter, and Jacqueline Bisset also star in the Morweena Banks penned project.

Check out the Miss You Already trailer and feel free to comment below!

BREAK POINT

David Walton (About A Boy) is an avid tennis player (he’s been playing since he was three) and that’s one of the elements which drew him to the new comedy Break Point. The narrative centers on Jimmy (Jeremy Sisto), a misanthropic and down on his luck doubles tennis player who enlists his more subdued (and estranged) brother Darren (Walton) to join him on tour. The picture has been a labor of love for Sisto, who also produced and received story credit for the project. Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) also stars in the film as the siblings’ dad.

Though Break Point’s main thrust lies in its humor, Walton wants viewers to feel like the lead actors know their way around a tennis court.

“I just wanted it to look real that we were people that could look like we could qualify for the US Open,” says Walton. “I’m actually friends with Andy Roddick and he watched it before his match in Atlanta with Mardy Fish, and (he said) ‘I approve man, you’re pretty good.’ So that was a huge moment for me - best moment of my life. (laughs)”

Break Point opens September 4, 2015.

maze-runner-scorch-trials-posterSet to hit theaters later this month, THE SCORCH TRIALS is the second installment in the uber-popular young-adult MAZE RUNNER series of sci-fi novels by prolific author JAMES DASHNER. Described as ‘a fusion of LORD OF THE FLIES, THE HUNGER GAMES and LOST, THE MAZE RUNNER has banked sales of over 10 million copies in all formats and has managed to cross over from YA status to appealing to all demographics.

Set in a dystopian future and centered on the continued survival games involving a disparate group of teens, THE SCORCH TRIALS is directed by WES BALL and features a cast that includes DYLAN O’BRIEN, KAYA SCODELARIO, THOMAS BRODIE-SANGSTER, NATHALIE EMMANUEL, KI HONG LEE, GIANCARLO ESPOSITO and ROSA SALAZAR.

A bona fide ‘teen heart-throb’ as a result of his scene-stealing role on the hit MTV series TEEN WOLF, DYLAN O’BRIEN is ostensibly the leader in this tale of teen survival. But, speaking to reporters at a recent press conference, O’BRIEN opted to downplay his participation in favor of making it a team effort. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS opens in theaters September 18.
