Showtime has released a new trailer for The Loudest Voice, the upcoming seven-part limited series starring Russell Crowe as Fox News founder Roger Ailes and Naomi Watts as former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson. The show is set to premiere on the network late next month.
Based on Vanity Fair correspondent Gabriel Sherman’s best-selling book The Loudest Voice in the Room, the limited series centers on Ailes as he arguably becomes the Republican Party’s de facto leader, touching on defining events in his life including his experiences with world leaders that gave birth to his political career and the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought it to an end.
The show, which features several episodes directed by Kari Skogland, also stars Sienna Miller as Ailes’ wife Elizabeth, Seth MacFarlane as former Fox News PR chief Brian Lewis, Simon McBurney as News Corp leader Rupert Murdoch, Annabelle Wallis as former Fox News booker Laurie Luhn, and Aleksa Palladino as Ailes’ longtime assistant Judy Laterza.
Oscar-winning Spotlight screenwriter Tom McCarthy and Sherman wrote the first episode the series, which is a co-production from Showtime and Blumhouse Television. Crowe and McCarthy are executive producers along with Alex Metcalf, Jason Blum, Marci Wiseman, Jeremy Gold, Liza Chasin, Skogland, and Padraic McKinley.
The Loudest Voice will premiere Sunday, June 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
Daniel Craig suspects foul play in the trailer for Rian Johnson’s star-studded whodunnit ‘Knives Out’
There is truly nothing better than a classic whodunit story, a genre which I am a sucker for, and so you could probably imagine my excitement when I saw that the trailer for Knives Out, the new murder mystery film from Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, had dropped this morning.
The absolutely bonkers first trailer for Knives Out gives us a look into the aftermath of the death of renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), who is found dead at his estate after his 85th birthday party.
Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is commissioned to investigate the writer’s mysterious demise, for which he will have to sift “through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.”
As incredible as that sounds, what’s really catching all my love and attention here is Knives Out‘s all-star ensemble cast, which also includes the likes of a foul-mouthed Chris Evans along with Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Michael Shannon, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, and Jaeden Martell.
I don’t know about you, but Knives Out, which hits theaters on November 27, appears to be very much my shit and undoubtedly just skyrocketed to the top of my most anticipated of the year list. (As if it wasn’t already at the top of my most anticipated of the year list.)
The hilarious first ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ trailer is, hands down, the best thing you’ll see today
By the looks of its first trailer, Jumanji: The Next Level, the eagerly awaited sequel to the 2017 box office smash Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, appears to have the same set-up as its predecessor, only this time around the players (and the rules of the game) have been unexpectedly changed.
Spencer (Alex Wolff) decides, for whatever reason, to dive back into the game, leaving it up to his three friends (Martha Kaply, Madison Iseman, Ser’Darius Blain) to follow him and retrace his steps in hopes of finding their missing friend.
But once they’re back inside Jumanji, they discover that Bethany (Iseman) has also now gone missing, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart‘s characters are now being controlled by Danny DeVito (Spencer’s grandfather) and Danny Glover (Spencer’s grandfather’s friend), and Anthony (Blain) is stuck in Jack Black’s body.
Yes, you read that right: Jumanji: The Next Level will see Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart channeling the likes of Danny DeVito and Danny Glover the entire movie and, honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better plot. As the kids say, inject this movie directly into my veins, baby.
Jumanji: The Next Level also stars Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Rhys Darby, Massi Furlan, and Dania Ramirez, and will hit theaters on December 13. You can check out the newly released trailer below.
Kristen Stewart wears many, many different wigs in the first trailer for the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot
As promised, Sony dropped the first trailer for Elizabeth Banks‘ Charlie’s Angels reboot this morning and, uh, I guess it looks fine? I mean, don’t get me wrong: I love everyone involved here and I’m psyched to see Banks back behind (and in front of) the camera, but there’s just something here that seems kinda…off?
Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, and Naomi Scott star here as the titular Angels, a group of highly-trained special agents who work for the mysterious Charles Townsend, a security and investigative agency that has begun to expand into international territories.
Given the circumstances, there are now multiple different teams of Angels guided by multiple different Bosleys (some of which are played by Banks, Patrick Stewart, and Djimon Hounsou) taking on some of the toughest and most dangerous jobs around the world.
While it’s nice to see Kristen Stewart, her many wigs, and everyone else here obviously having a lot of fun in their respective roles, this trailer isn’t really doing a very good job of selling me on this thing quite yet and I’m keeping my fingers crossed the movie itself will be 10 times better than what we got today. Consider me cautiously optimistic for the time being.
Charlie’s Angels will hit theaters on November 15. You can check out the newly released trailer below.
