Currently in theaters, THE DROP is a gritty crime drama that centers on what happens when a clumsy armed robbery goes haywire at a money-laundering bar known as Cousin Marv’s and an investigation leads to a succession of secrets and lies being revealed. Directed by MICHAEL R. ROSKAM from a screenplay by DENNIS LEHANE, the film stars TOM HARDY, NOOMI RAPACE, JAMES GANDOLFINI, MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS and ELIZABETH RODRIGUEZ.

For better or worse, THE DROP will always hold a place in movie history as being the final big screen performance of JAMES GANDOLFINI (who died at the age of 52 on 6/19/13).

During a recent interview to promote the film, director ROSKHAM talked about how GANDOLFINI’S unexpected death affected the end result of THE DROP.

THE DROP is in theaters now.

_rbdave73dj1_hires23To call TUSK ‘quirky’ or ‘off-beat’ just wouldn’t do it justice. In a nutshell, the film is a dark horror dramedy that centers on a podcaster who disappears into the Canadian wilderness where he was conducting an interview with an old man with an incredible past. A mysterious seafarer, the old man has a fetish for walruses and decides to take his guest hostage and turn him into one.

Written and directed by notorious indie filmmaker KEVIN SMITH, the cast features JUSTIN LONG, GENESIS RODRIGUEZ, HALEY JOEL OSMENT and MICHAEL PARKS (as well as a swell cameo by JOHNNY DEPP).

Said to be the first in what SMITH is calling his TRUE NORTH TRILOGY, TUSK is a throwback to the kind of independent features he cut his teeth on. We sat down with SMITH a few days ago and he admitted this is the kind of project he’s most interested in. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO — WARNING: NSFW)


TUSK is in select theaters now.

Directed by SCOTT FRANK, the film stars LIAM NEESON, DAN STEVENS, BOYD HOLBROOK, DAVID HARBOUR and ADAM DAVID THOMPSON.

_rbdave73dj1_hires2In the just released feature THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, a hugely dysfunctional family is forced to live together in the same house for a week per the last wishes of the recently deceased patriarch. A dark comedy based on the book by JONATHAN TROPPER, the film is directed by SHAWN LEVY and features a stellar cast that includes JANE FONDA, JASON BATEMAN, TINA FEY, CONNIE BRITTON, ROSE BYRNE, TIMOTHY OLYPHANT, ADAM DRIVER and COREY STOLL.

Equally at ease with both drama and comedy, Academy Award-winning actress JANE FONDA plays the embarrassing matriarch with a penchant for oversharing to the hilt. Sitting down with reporters last week to promote the film, FONDA talked about how, while some of the cast improvised dialog, she felt much more comfortable sticking to the script.

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU opens in theaters today.

13Bringing its first season to a close tonight on FX, MARRIED is a half-hour sitcom detailing the lengths an unhappily married couple will go to stay together. Despite the constant bickering, debt and declining sex life, they realize they’re best friends and continue to hash it out. Created by ANDREW GURLAND, the series stars Academy Award-winner NAT FAXON, JUDY GREER, BRETT GELMAN, JENNY SLATE and recurring players PAUL REISER, JOHN HODGEMAN and REGINA HALL.

We recently sat down with FAXON and GREER to talk about the season finale and, while they didn’t want to spoil anything, they were able to give the episode a tease.


The season finale of MARRIED airs tonight on FX.

11Premiering tonight on NBC, THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA is based on a Spanish series adapted for an American audience and centers on NYPD Homicide Detective Laura Diamond (DEBRA MESSING), who balances her day job with her off-duty hours spent as a single mom raising ridiculously rambunctious twin sons. Her life is even more complicated in trying to get her ex-husband (who also happens to be her new boss) (JOSH LUCAS) to sign their divorce papers. Unfortunately, the attempt to balance a dramatic police procedural with a broad domestic sitcom is less than successful and, if the pilot is any indication, the show is kind of a mess.

We sat down recently with DEBRA MESSING and JOSH LUCAS to talk about the show and they explained their characters.

THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA debuts tonight on NBC.
