Throughout the course of his career, Bruce Willis has taken roles that have challenged him in different ways. He’s been a comedian (Moonlighting, Blind Date), an action hero (the Die Hard franchise, Armageddon), and a dramatic actor (The Sixth Sense, Twelve Monkeys). And while genre-hopping certainly takes a lot of effort and skill, Willis never thinks of it as being hard work. In fact, he doesn’t think of it as work at all!

The next Bruce Willis movie showcases his action side; Acts of Violence opens in theaters on Friday.

ABC’s comedy Black-ish was very much inspired by the real-life situation of its star, Anthony Anderson. He grew up in Compton, California — yes, the “Straight Outta” hood — but his success as an entertainer has allowed him and his wife to raise their kids in much more lucrative surroundings. So, when the Black-ish kids face issues of cultural identity, they’re often mirroring the cross-cultural experiences Anderson’s kids have faced as they’ve grown up. As an example, Anderson told us the story of how his son, questioning his racial roots, wanted to celebrate his 13th birthday in an unlikely way. (Click on the media bar to hear Anthony Anderson)

Black-ish airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on ABC.

Kickboxer Retaliation is a sequel to 2016’s Kickboxer Vengeance, with MMA champ Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi) now imprisoned in Thailand by a crime lord (Highlander’s Christopher Lambert).

To gain freedom as well as save his wife, Sloane must beat a ruthless, 400lb warrior (Game of Thrones’ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) in a death match.

The interesting aspect of the franchise was it started with Jean-Claude Van Damme but it was eventually rebooted with Kickboxer Vengeance. Van Damme starred in that film as Master Durand, and he’s back once again to mentor Kurt Sloane in the latest installment. The trailer promises a ton of action and features a funny line from co-star Mike Tyson (”You interrupted my meditation”).

Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

Kickboxer Retaliation, co-starring Sara Malakul Lane, opens nationwide January 26.

FOX 2018 Golden Globes After Party

Sam Rockwell gave one of 2017’s best performances as a racist cop in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and he was celebrated for his work with a Golden Globe Award. After delivering his speech, Rockwell went backstage to mention one important aspect he forgot to mention.

“I forgot to thank my fellow nominees up there on the stage so I wanted to thank them and say I am honored and humbled to be in there company,” said Rockwell who will next be seen with Jessica Chastain in Woman Walks Ahead.

On any other year, whether Rockwell will win an Oscar for his supporting role should be the main topic of conversation, but there is a huge sea change in Hollywood when it comes to sexual harassment, and Rockwell chimed in on how men can play an even more important role in the conversation.

After taking the holidays off, This Is Us returns to NBC with its winter premiere tomorrow night at 9/8c. We’ve been impressed with the show’s second season: After its stellar debut last year, it’s been able to maintain the same quality, while keeping us on that emotional roller coaster of laughter and tears. For those of you who haven’t been keeping up — or if you just want a reminder of where things left off — here’s a video recap to help get you caught up.

tc_05689They say that age is just a number; when it comes to Liam Neeson, we believe it! At age 65, when he could easily “settle down” into quiet dramas, Neeson is still happily taking roles in demanding action movies. His latest is The Commuter, which finds his character caught up in a criminal conspiracy aboard the commuter train he rides to and from work each day. As usual, Neeson insisted on doing as much of the stunt work as he could, so that the scenes would look as realistic as possible. (Click on the media bar below to hear Liam Neeson)

The Commuter rolls into theaters this Friday.

With autism now affecting one in every 68 children born in the United States, according to the CDC, ABC’s drama The Good Doctor faced the daunting task of portraying an autistic lead character without making him feel like a stereotype. Freddie Highmore, who portrays the character on the show, told us he’s been extremely impressed with the way the show’s producers — led by creator David Shore (who also created House) — have developed Dr. Shaun Murphy in such a realistic way. (Click on the media bar below to hear Freddie Highmore)

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

basmatiblues4

Oscar winner Brie Larson (Room) continues to expand her creative horizons by not taking the safe and secure route of headlining studio driven projects. Basmati Blues centers on Dr. Linda Watt (Larson), a sheltered scientist who travels to India on a work trip. During her stay she discovers that her company’s plans may harm the livelihood of the local farmers, so she and the villagers band together to stop this destructive agenda. Rajit (Utkarsh Ambudkar), a spirited college student who has instant chemistry with Linda, also helps her along the journey. Scott Bakula and Donald Sutherland co-star in the feature.

The flick contains original songs penned by Pearl Jam, Dave Baerwald, Sonu Nigam, and Sugarland’s Kristian Bush. A love letter to Bollywood cinema, the flick opens in theaters and is available on VOD February 9. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

ladyandthetramp1

Lady and the Tramp, which is a recent addition to the acclaimed Walt Disney Signature Collection, hits Blu-ray February 27 and will be available on Digital and on Movie Anywhere starting February 20.

Fans of the animated classic can watch the original theatrical version, the sing-along mode, or via Walt’s story meetings.

New extras for this edition enables viewers to check out Walt Disney’s original suite on the studio and learn about his passion for pups. Also included is a celebrity hosted and meatballs cooking lesson. Via sing-along mode, fans can warble various tunes from the film, including the signature track “Bella Notte.”

One of Lady and the Tramp’s strengths lies in its visual breadth, and this CinemaScope aesthetic continues to transcend time and weather. Making this flick part of the Walt Disney Signature Collection, in essence, is a total no-brainer!

Previous Walt Disney Signature Collection releases include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast, Pinocchio, The Lion King, and Bambi.
