Hugh Jackman has consistently made interesting choices about what films he wants to star in. Obviously, most people know him as the superhero Wolverine in the multiple “X-Men” films he starred in, but when he’s not slashing people with metal claws, he’s taken roles in “Eddie the Eagle,” “Les Miserables,” and “Australia.” Now, according to Variety, he’s moving even further away from his superhero roots in a new film called “The Frontrunner.” In “The Frontrunner,” Jackman plays the infamous Senator Gary Hart.

Ansel Elgort looks to be ready to make his departure from the YA-drama genre in a big way with Edgar Wright’sBaby Driver.” Now, according to Deadline, the actor is taking more steps away from being everyone’s favorite teen heartthrob by signing up to play President John. F. Kennedy in the upcoming, “Mayday 109.” If you’re thinking that Elgort is a bit on the young side to portray a President, you’d be right.

We’re only halfway through the year, but one film that’s certain to land on many Worst Films Of 2017 lists this year will be Colin Trevorrow‘s “The Book Of Henry.” Following the blockbuster success of “Jurassic World,” the “Safety Not Guaranteed” director returned to his indie roots with ‘Henry’ but unfortunately, the results did not impress. Critics were ruthless in their reviews of the film, which mixed sexual abuse, a precocious leading kid, and dramedy tropes in a movie that was wildly uneven, and for many, just plain bizarre.

While “Deadpool” made big piles of money, and was declared the proof of concept that you could step well outside the superhero sandbox, take a risk, and have it pay off handsomely, let’s just say the movie wasn’t for me. I have very little interest in the follow-up, but now Ryan Reynolds and co. have provided one reason I might watch the sequel one day, even if it’s on an airplane.

An unlikely smash hit last summer, STX Entertainment has wasted little time in going franchise with “Bad Moms.” After an ill-advised flirtation with knocking out a “Bad Dads” movie, the studio wisely realized audiences wanted more ‘Moms,’ and this holiday season, the gang is back. Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn have returned for this holiday-themed sequel, which keeps the R-rated approach intact.  Continue reading First NSFW Trailer For ‘A Bad Moms Christmas’ Gets Raunchy For The Holidays at The Playlist.

While there’s been speculation that Ben Affleck might walk from his role as Batman in the DCEU, director Matt Reeves, who is slated to helm the solo outing “The Batman,” has put those fears to rest. In an interview with Getty, he said development on the movie is moving forward with Affleck very much as the lead, but perhaps even more exciting is what the filmmaker plans to do with the property.

There’s a lot of excitement this week about Edgar Wright‘s “Baby Driver,” not only because it’s a pure blast of popcorn entertainment, but because it’s the rare original film in a season of franchises. And before the summer is out, another movie is coming from an auteur director working with a great cast, and promising to deliver a wild ride: Steven Soderbergh‘s “Logan Lucky.” Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterson, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, Hilary Swank, and Daniel Craig star in the heist flick, that centers around two brothers who attempt to pull off a robbery during the Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
