GEOSTORMOn one level, Gerard Butler’s new film, Geostorm, is your standard big-budget, action-heavy disaster movie. But the movie, in which Butler tries to save the world when climate-controlling satellites go awry, is also a cautionary tale about the dangers Earth is facing from global warming. Butler says the movie’s No. 1 goal is to entertain you, but he also hopes it makes you think, too.

Geostorm is now in theaters.

147520_6133-400x0One of this fall’s most intriguing new shows is ABC’s The Good Doctor, which stars Freddie Highmore as a brilliant doctor who happens to be autistic. With more than 3.5 million Americans dealing with some form of autism, it’s a condition that has some kind of impact on most people’s daily lives. Since the autism spectrum is so broad, it’s also a complex condition that needs to be addressed in a knowledgeable, compassionate way. Highmore told us he thinks the show’s writers and producers are doing a great job of writing his character from an accurate and humane perspective. (Click on the media bar below to hear Freddie Highmore)

The Good Doctor airs Monday nights at 10/9c on ABC.

1_b2_d04_02388_r2_rgbTyler Perry knows a thing or two about costumes: He’s spent many hours in makeup chairs and wardrobe rooms, transforming himself into characters for the movies and plays he’s done. Of course, Madea is the most famous, but he’s played several different characters, often in the same movie. (He plays three roles in his latest film, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween.) Given his expertise and access to costume experts, you’d think Perry would go all-out for Halloween, but he told us it’s exactly the opposite! (Click on the media bar below to hear Tyler Perry)

24hours

Ethan Hawke proved his action mettle last year with two Westerns (The Magnificent Seven, In A Valley of Violence), and now he’s stepping into the present with 24 Hours To Live.

Will this assassin get revenge on the person who took his life, and will he actually live longer than just one day if he completes the mission.

Co-starring Game of Thrones’ Liam Cunningham and Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), 24 Hours To Live opens in limited release December 1st in Los Angeles and New York. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Based on Jo Nesbø’s bestselling novel, the Oslo set thriller The Snowman is director Tomas Alfredson’s first film since 2011’s acclaimed Tinker Tailor Solder Spy. The story centers on Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender), a hard drinking detective who’s on the trail of a serial killer and Oscar winning actor J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) plays a wealthy industrialist who may be a central figure into the investigations.

“This film will be very involving for an audience and be full of surprises and shockingly gruesome surprises in some cases” said Simmons, who also starred opposite Ben Affleck in the twist-driven thriller The Accountant. “But intelligent, interesting surprises as well. Certainly it’s not a movie for the faint of heart.”

Click on the media bar to hear Simmons discuss how he got involved with The Snowman.


The Snowman, co-starring Rebecca Ferguson, opens nationwide today.

When it began, Will & Grace was based around a simple premise: Can a man and a woman living completely different lifestyles coexist as best friends? Over the course of its original run, people fell in love with the dynamic between Will Truman (Eric McCormack) and Grace Adler (Debra Messing) because they were able to share everything about their lives with each other without the possibility of becoming physically intimate. For TV at the time, it was a revolutionary concept, since it seemed like every male/female relationship was built around the “will they or won’t they?” sexual tension. But with Will being a gay man and Grace a straight woman, that was never on the table, and Debra Messing feels their emotional closeness made the relationship much deeper than any sexual tension could have. (Click on the media bar below to hear Debra Messing)

Will & Grace, of course, is back and airing Thursday nights at 9/8c on NBC.

otb_lapremiere_43_rgbOver the last few years, Miles Teller has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors, with roles in movies as diverse as Whiplash, Footloose, War Dogs and, of course, the Divergent series. Now, he has two new movies coming out this month: the firefighter drama Only The Brave and the military drama Thank You For Your Service. With so much success coming so quickly, you’d think it might go to his head. But Teller told us the relationships he developed before he became famous have helped keep him grounded now that he has. (Click on the media bar below to hear Miles Teller)

Only The Brave opens on Friday, and Thank You For Your Service opens the following Friday.

The show may be called Arrow, but that doesn’t mean that Arrow — along with his alter ego, Oliver Quinn — is the only important part of the show. If fact, Stephen Amell, who plays the title character on The CW’s hit series, says that as time’s gone on, the members of his supporting team have become more and more important to the show’s success. (Click on the media bar below to hear Stephen Amell)

Arrow airs Thursday nights at 9/8c, following Supernatural on The CW.

Same Kind of Different As Me is true story based on the unlikely friendship of Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear) and Denver Moore. Hall, a successful art dealer, attempted to appease his wife (Renée Zellweger) after his infidelity by joining her volunteering efforts at  a local homeless shelter. Hall’s friendship with Moore (Djimon Hounsou), a homeless man, is urged on by his wife, and the two eventually authored the book that serves as the film’s source material.

“(Homelessness) a powerful subject across the board,” said Kinnear. “That said, the job is to make a movie. We can talk about all of the things in the world but we’re also trying to make a film that is going to touch people, inspire them, affect them, and the only way to do that is to find the reality of the story. To truthfully try and tell something and there was a very strong story from the get go that Ron and Denver had outlined in the book.”

Click on the media bar to hear Kinnear talk about playing a real life character in the film and the importance of staying truthful and honest to the story behind Same Kind of Different As Me.



Same Kind of Different As Me opens nationwide October 20.

Throughout his illustrious career Bill Pullman has genre hopped with the best of them, and though he played Ed Masterson in Lawrence Kasdan’s vastly underrated Wyatt Earp, he’s not exactly known as a Western guy.

That may change with the impending release of The Ballad of Lefty Brown, as Pullman is getting great word of mouth as the titular protagonist. After his friend, newly elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda), is killed, Lefty Brown (Pullman) travels the Montana plains to catch the outlaws. Helping him on his mission is a novice gunslinger (Diego Josef) and a worn down U.S. Marshall (Sons of Anarchy’s Tommy Flanagan) who is unfortunately more proficient with the bottle than a six shooter. Jim Caviezel, Kathy Baker, and Joe Anderson round out the cast.

The picture is the second feature of writer-director Jared Moshe (his 2012 cinematic debut was another Western titled Dead Man’s Burden). Check out the trailer below and leave us a comment!

The Ballad of Lefty Brown hits DirecTV November 9 and has a theatrical run starting December 15.
