Kate McKinnon as “Morgan” and Mila Kunis as “Aubrey” in THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME.
The just released trailer for The Spy Who Dumped Meis definitely amusing, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a bonafide hit when it hits theaters August 3.
Best friends Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) are thrust into a world of espionage and danger after Audrey’s ex-boyfriend (Justin Theroux) arrives to her apartment attempting to escape a group of assassins. After this life threatening incident, the ladies are on the run in Europe, with only a charming British agent (Sam Heughan) possibly serving as their best chance of survival.
Both Kunis and McKinnon have proven to be quality comedic actresses, and their mutual love for self-deprecating humor should lend itself well with this comedy. The James Bond opening credits homage is also a wonderful touch to the trailer, and hopefully this film will just be as good, if not better, than this clip.

Bryan Cranstongoes the stop motion animation route withIsle of Dogs, the latest film of filmmaker Wes Anderson. The actor is the voice of Chief, a homeless dog who is relegated along with other canines to Trash Island. It is in this wasteland where a boy named Atari (Koyu Rankin) searches for his lost dog Spots (Liev Schreiber).
To prepare for the role, Cranston didn’t exactly have to place himself in the mind of a dog, but instead he journeyed to a more personal space. “A dog is capable of love and anger and fear and all those things that humans can feel,” said the actor. “So just bring those human traits to the surface and then whatever note that you’re bringing the other actors are bringing (their) notes and it’s up to Wes Anderson to be the conductor of this orchestra.”

Now in Steam Early Access, the visually arresting 2D brawler Fantasy Strike will be released this summer (exact date tbd). This debut will coincide with its debut on the PlayStation 4 console and PC.
“Fantasy Strike is the perfect fighting game for Switch,” said David Sirlin, lead designer of the title. “The Switch is a take-anywhere console, so fighting games would be great on it if not for how notoriously difficult they are to control Usually, playing a fighting game on a JoyCon would be tough, but Fantasy Strike is designed specifically for that. Detach the JoyCons, give one to a friend, and you can play a deep, strategic fighting game anywhere.”
During the latest patch, professional voice acting and facial animation for all 10 characters, along with a new Team Battle mode, have been added. Sirlin Games has also combined its own network tech with GGPO networking to give players a more seamless gaming experience. We’ll be reviewing the game in the coming months (possibly on the PlayStation 4) so stay tuned for our coverage!
Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert will be headlined by John Legend as Jesus Christ, with the production airing live April 1 at the Marcy Armory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Sara Bareilles will co-star as Mary Magdalene and rocker Alice Cooperwill be featured as King Herod.
“What an incredible honor to be cast as Jesus but also to be a part of this production,” said Legend who grew up in a Christian family and sang selections from the musical as a youth in show choir. “It’s such a classic musical. It’s such a classic set of songs and such an important story to tell. For me to get to play Jesus Christ is pretty incredible.”
Based on the final week of Jesus Christ’s life, the musical debuted in 1975 and was nominated for five Tonys. Click on the media bar to hear Legend explain why he’s a pretty solid fit for Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert:

It will be hard to top Sicario, but with Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro back in the mix, the sequel is an extremely intriguing proposition.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado reteams federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) and the laser focused Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) in a new conflict. With drug trafficking terrorists traveling across the US Border, the pair attempt to figure out a plan to escalate the fight by kidnapping a kingpin’s daughter.
The twist is she is seen as collateral damage, and now Alejandro and Matt are turning that conflict towards each other. Taylor Sheridan (Wind River), who penned Sicario, also wrote the sequel’s screenplay, with Stefano Sollima (Suburra) taking on the directing duties (Dennis Villeneuve helmed the original).
