If you want to know how strong the goodwill that Wes Anderson carries around is, all you have to do is look at the absolutely great and kinda bonkers cast for his new movie, “Isle Of Dogs.” In no particular order, F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood, all lend their voices to what is hopefully another winning picture from the filmmaker.

Oh right, “The Mummy.” I honestly keep forgetting this movie is coming, and perhaps Universal senses they need to kick up the awareness, because with just a few weeks to go until it hits cinemas, a new trailer has landed. Tom Cruise plays Ethan Hunt Nick Morton who opens up a tomb he shouldn’t have, gets cursed, and now has to save the world from an ancient evil.

Tom Cruise already has one bread and butter franchise with “Mission: Impossible,” but it looks like he might have another, taking the lead in Universal’s first monster movie universe movie with “The Mummy.” And a new trailer highlights its blockbuster ambitions.

Like most corporate holiday parties, “Office Christmas Party” reeks of desperation and an incessant need to have fun at every turn. Sure, there are some generally reliable players (T.J. Miller, Jason Bateman, Kate McKinnon), which keeps things from getting deathly dull, but the newest film from directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck (“Blades of Glory”) is mostly uninspired and bland.

So, like it or not, we’re getting a monster movie universe now courtesy of Universal. The studio is bringing their well of classic cinematic monsters back to the big screen, with Marvel-style connectivity. And they’re not holding on back on hiring big guns to get asses in the seats, with Tom Cruise still somewhat unbelievably starring in “The Mummy.” Clearly, the ambition is high for this picture which sees “Kingsman: The Secret Service” star Sofia Boutella playing the titular creature, with Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B.

It’s that time of year, when the will to get wasted and blow off the steam of the past 12 months has to be measured against maintaining your composure at the office Christmas party. Many have fallen prey to too much eggnog when hanging out with their co-workers and wind up carrying some real regret into January. And for the characters in Universal‘s plainly titled “Office Christmas Party,” things are going to get — as the kids say — lit af.

The holiday party at work is the one time of year where you get the chance to see your co-workers for who they really are. Sometimes, all it takes is a couple glasses of eggnog to loosen ties, and suddenly Chad from Accounting is saying what he really thinks of the boss, right to his face. And in it’s that spirit that “Office Christmas Party” is headed to the big screen.
