The “Star Wars” universe has really gone through a big shake up in the last six months: directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller fired from the “Han Solo” movies, and filmmaker Colin Trevorrow parting ways with Lucasfilm on “Star Wars: Episode XI,” both re…

Everybody wants to be “Goodfellas.” It’s the coolest, slickest kid in school. Ever since Martin Scorsese‘s influential mobster epic first came onto the scene in 1990, many directors and producers have tried to replicate that iconic film’s free-wheeling, high-rolling style. Whether it’s “Lord Of War,” “American Hustle,” or “War Dogs,” to name a mere few, Hollywood isn’t shy about trying to recreate that smooth criminal classic’s singular success.

As Tom Cruise heals up from his “Mission: Impossible 6” injury, the ever busy actor has another big movie on the horizon with “American Made.” Early notices have been very positive about the Doug Liman joint (the film currently stands at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after 8 reviews), and now you can get a taste for the action drama with four clips. Based on a true story, the film follows an ordinary pilot who is recruited by the CIA to run one of their covert operations, and of course, nothing goes as smooth as it should.
