Will Smith Battles His Younger Self In New ‘Gemini Man’ Trailer

Ang Lee’s love for visual effects is on display with his films Hulk, Life of Pi and most recently Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. With Gemini Man, Lee teams up with Will Smith in an ambitious thriller that employs the de-aging visual effects process (which was used this year for Samuel L. Jackson in Captain Marvel).

Smith plays Henry Brogan, an elite assassin who is being targeted by younger operative (also Smith) who knows his very move. The flick co-stars Clive Owen and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. As much as I am excited about the Smith and Lee pairing, the picture slightly reminds me of Looper (sans the time travel element). Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Gemini Man hits theaters October 11.

‘Abby’s’ Actress Natalie Morales Takes “Action” With Creative Journey

One of the many strong aspects of Abby’s lies in its diverse (and most importantly funny) ensemble. Actress Natalie Morales headlines the series as the titular character, a Marine vet turned bartender to her friends.

With diversity being a part of Abby’s, Morales, the actress was asked about her thoughts on affirmative action. “When you give an opportunity to someone who is hungry, who may not have had as much experience as someone else, you can push them forward and to me that is what the idea of affirmative action is,” said Morales. “You’re giving an opportunity to someone who might not have it otherwise. It doesn’t mean that you’re choosing them just because of their color or just because it’s a woman, (It’s because) you’re going ‘I need to balance these scales out.’ And then hopefully it will all work itself out.”

Morales’ drive to expand her career horizons has also led her down the directing path. Click on the media bar to hear Morales talk about her passion for filmmaking (co-star Neil Flynn is also heard in the clip):

Abby’s airs Thursday nights on NBC (9:30 pm et/pt).

Brenton Thwaites Covers Up Brother’s Crime In ‘A Violent Separation’ Trailer

Brenton Thwaites (Titans, An Interview With God) stars in A Violent Separation as Norman Young, a deputy who is torn between a bond with his brother Ray (Animal Kingdom’s Ben Robson) and his duty as an officer.

When Ray commits a criminal act, the right thing to do would be to put him behind bars. Norman, however, believes in the blood is thicker than water rule and covers up the crime. To further complicate matters, Norman is romancing Frances (Alycia Debnam-Carey), the sister of the victim (Claire Holt).

The brotherly dynamic of A Violent Separation should be covered with an insightful touch, as the midwestern town thriller is directed by siblings Michael and Kevin Goetz (Scenic Route, Martyrs).

A Violent Separation hits theaters and On Demand May 17 via Screen Media Films. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Mark Hamill Bids “Goodnight” As Chucky In New ‘Child’s Play’ Trailer

Child’s Play is not a remake of the 1988 horror classic, but rather it’s dubbed as a “re-imagining” of the tale. Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) is single mom Karen who gifts her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll. As well all know, this doll is not as lovable as can be and actually is all about mayhem and murder!

The big draw for folks who are not diehard fans of the Chucky franchise may be Mark Hamill (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) who is the voice of Chucky. In preparation for the flick, Hamill saw all seven of the previous films and since he’s one of the entertainment industry’s most beloved voice actors (he voiced Joker in Batman: The Killing Joke), he should knock this role out of the park. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think of Hamill’s interpretation of Chucky (his voice is teased at the end of the clip)!
