“Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.”

    —IMDB

One word: amazing! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 does not disappoint. The film looks at the characters allowing for character growth while also establishing a family unit for the characters. The movie goes back to trace back the origins of Peter/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt). But there’s more to this film than just that. It had heart and focuses on the Guardians not just as a group of heroes or friends, but as a family. And that’s one of the things that makes this film so good because everyone focuses on the characters and their dynamics with one another. They care about each other, they fight with one another and for one another. They are a strong unit and the cast and crew make sure that that resonates off the screen.

Jennifer Lawrence And David O. Russell Reteaming For The Ends Of The Earth


By:  Eric Eisenberg

Jennifer_Lawrence_35853It would seem that Jennifer Lawrence and director David O. Russell got along famously on the set of Silver Linings Playbook. Not only did their collaboration lead to the actress’ second Oscar nomination in the Best Actress category, she also recently signed on to appear in Russell’s next film about the famous Abscam sting, formerly known as American Bullshit. But while that movie is still in pre-production, Lawrence and Russell are already set to go for the hat trick.

The Hollywood Reporter is now saying that the duo are set to reunite onThe Ends of the Earth, the new romantic drama set up over at The Weinstein Company. The project, which won’t be made until after the Abscam film is completed, follows a “a powerful oil tycoon who has everything stripped from him after he is caught in an affair.” Unlike most of Russell’s projects, the writer/director won’t be scripting the project himself, those duties instead falling to Oscar nominated Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio.

Said Russell in a statement about the new project, “Jennifer possesses a self-deprecating humor that made all of the cast and crew feel at ease. She is that kind of person… She is the most dedicated person I know. She is devoted to her family and they have been the true inspiration for her character and integrity. Her acting is effortless and she always makes it look easy.”

Meanwhile, the Abscam film is gearing up to start production next month in New York and Boston and features a cast that includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Louis C.K.

Lena Headey, Anna Friel And Emily Watson Join Dark Comedy The Poisoners

Jon Amiel’s dark comedy The Poisoners has managed to secure itself a strong cast of leading ladies. Joining the film, which is set to begin shooting in Ireland and Germany this summer, are Emily Watson, Anna Friel, and Lena Headey.

Written by Paul Billing, The Poisoners takes place during World War I and follows a group of women who are left behind in an English farming community and find themselves involved with German prisoners of war. The Hollywood Reporter posted word of the casting, stating that Watson, Friel and Headey join German actors Ken Duken, Hanno Koffler and Alexander Scheer.


Emily Watson’s no stranger to dark humor, with films like Punch-Drunk Love, Corpse Bride and Cold Souls among her list of credits. Meanwhile, Lena Heady and Anna Friel have spread their considerable talent between the big and small screens. Friel’s notable roles include a starring part in the unfortunately short-lived dark dramedy Pushing Daisies. More recently, she starred opposite Bradley Cooper in Limitless. As for Headey, she’s been making a name for herself in strong female roles, having starred in 300, Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and currently, as the dark and intimidating Cersei Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Given their varying backgrounds, it should be interesting to see the dynamic between these women in The Poisoners.
