‘The Wall’ Trailer: Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena Are Under Enemy Fire in Doug Liman’s New Thriller

by Jack Giroux

The Wall trailer

If you need some good news today, then here’s some for you: two Doug Liman films are coming out next year. Over a year ago the Swingers and Edge of Tomorrow director reunited with Tom Cruise for the delayed American Made, but he also has a thriller starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals) and John Cena (Trainwreck) coming out soon. That movie, The Wall, is set in one location and about two soldiers pinned down by a sniper.

Below, watch The Wall trailer.

If this is the first you’ve heard of Liman’s thriller, that’s maybe because it got made this year relatively quickly and quietly. Taylor-Johnson was cast in the project just back in May, and seven months later, we already have a trailer for the first original film from Amazon Studios. The studio bought Dwain Worrell‘s script, which made the 2014 Black List. The Wall was originally described as the smaller picture Liman was going to shoot before Gambit, which he ended up leaving.

The Wall trailer calls to mind other single location thrillers, but maybe Liman, a director whose work is often fresh and exciting, will bring something new to the table:

The first minute of the trailer builds tension well to the moment where everything goes wrong for Taylor-Johnson and Cena’s characters. When Cena’s character says, “The scope is an extension of my eye, the trigger is an extension of my fist, the rifle is an extension of me, and I strike you down,” is the highlight of the trailer. Cena’s tone intensifying, the music growing louder, and the faster cutting — that’s when The Wall looks like another movie from Liman to see in a theater. Cena showed a new side of himself in Trainwreck, for a performance he maybe should’ve gotten more credit for, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does with a director as talented as Liman.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Wall:

“The Wall” follows two soldiers pinned down by an Iraqi sniper, with nothing but a crumbling wall between them. Their fight becomes as much a battle of will and wits as it is of lethally accurate marksmanship. Directed by Doug Liman (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Edge of Tomorrow”), “The Wall” stars Aaron Taylor Johnson (“Nocturnal Animals,” Kick-Ass,” “Savages” “Godzilla,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”) and WWE star John Cena (“Trainwreck,” “Daddy’s Home”), Written by first-time screenwriter Dwain Worrell, “The Wall,” was produced by Amazon Studios, Big Indie Pictures and Picrow. The film is produced by David Bartis. Executive Producer is Ray Angelic. Associate Producer is Alison Winter. FilmNation is handling international sales.

The Wall opens in theaters March 10th, 2017.

VOTD: This ‘Rogue One’ Commercial Will Make Tears Come Out Of Your Face

by Ethan Anderton

Rogue One Commercial

The brand of Star Wars is slapped on anything and everything you can find in stores. While it’s easy justified to be cynical about all the merchandising and branding of the sci-fi saga for the profit of corporations, sometimes the corporate sponsors who use Star Wars to promote their brand create something truly special and moving at the same time.

Case in point, Globe Telecom, Inc., the top mobile brand in the Philippines, has released a Rogue One commercial that is one of the most touching things you’ll see today. Maybe it’s just because it’s the holidays, or maybe it’s because 2016 was awful, but this commercial will pull tears right out of your eyes.

Sure, this is an advertisement for a massive mobile services company manipulating us into thinking better of them. But this Rogue One commercial also illustrates why something like Star Wars is so important to some people. It’s what makes us feel like we belong. It’s something that we can latch onto when the odds are stacked against us. It can help us cope with tragedy. It can inspire us to live up to our potential.

In the case of this commercial, a young girl uses a Stormtrooper helmet to hide her oxygen mask. Even though this makes her stand out, it makes her feel comfortable. Her brother wears his Stormtrooper hoodie with her in solidarity. And then her peers all wear Stormtrooper helmets so that she doesn’t have to feel embarrassed or alone. That’s just beautiful.

Need something to bring a little smile to your face today? Perhaps this video will do for you.

From last night’s Nintendo packed Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, here is a nice moment where Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto got to play the character’s themesong alongside house band The Roots. He keeps up with everyone too. That’s a lot of talent up on stage.

Now that was a lovely little moment, eh?

Nice!



The ampersand used to be the 27th letter of the alphabet. To avoid confusion with the word ‘and’, people added 'per se’ before its name when reciting the alphabet so that it ended: X, Y, Z, and per se &. Over time, the 'and per se and’ ran together, and the term 'ampersand’ was born. Source

Hang Paintings Perfectly with a Fork

Fuck.

Brilliant.

Hanging items on a nail isn’t hard, but it’s always tough to hang something you can’t see. You need the string to thread the nail, but not the wooden frame itself. You could photocopy a template, but your poster or painting might be too big. A simple fork can make the job easier.

Very excited for this.

lightbox_submissions_2f20160727c62fb813c69cc979130d49f39d7096c1_2flegion_promo

All we’d really had in the way of visuals so far around the Noah Hawley (Fargo) helmed Legion was the trailer that had debuted back at the San Diego Comic-Con. Now that’s changed, and not only do we have a shiny new trailer from FX, but we also have confirmation of it’s premiere date.

Slated to air on February 8th at 10 p.m., the show stars Dan Stevens as the titular character. In the original Marvel comic universe, he is the mutant son of Professor Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller and suffers from a severe mental illness, including a form of dissociative identity disorder, with each of his personas controlling one of his many superpowers.

In the FX adaptation, which is being set in an alternate universe from the rest of the Marvel television and film universe, he is a schizophrenic being afflicted with auditory and visual hallucinations. Being in and out of hospitals for most of his life, but another new patient reveals that what’s been happing might be more than what’s just been in his head.

legionfx Legion also stars Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Fargo alum Jean Smart, Katie Aselton, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin and Amber Midthunder.

FX Orders Pilot for ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Spinoff ‘Mayans MC’

by Bill Watters
the-mayans_samcro_soa_fx-670x447

After FX first got fan’s hopes up when it ordered a script for development back in May, it looks like the network is ready to take the next step with creation of the pilot for Mayans MC. Sons of Anarchy’s original writer, director, and producer Kurt Sutter will coming back in again which should help keep the original feel and vibe going strong.

With SoA being FX’s highest rated series to day, it’d been a foregone conclusion that it wasn’t so much of if a spin-off would happen, but when. After SoA’s completion, Sutter had moved on to the historical drama series The Bastard Executioner, but when FX nixed that after one season, he found he had time back on his hands again to start mulling on how to kick-start back into the SoA universe.

Set after the end of SoA’s season seven finale, Mayans MC will focus on EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC character along the California/Mexico border.

This time, Sutter won’t be writing alone, back when the script had been ordered, he teamed up with Elgin James, which will continue to co-write and co-executive produce on Mayans. In speaking with Deadline, Sutter said, I wanted to find a strong, unique Latino voice. I didn’t think a white guy from Jersey should be writing about Latin culture and traditions.”

da7c11bb3bdee76579730346c82e746a

Well with production slated to begin in Spring of ’17, we could see it as early as the Fall. A lot will depend if FX proceeds with a season order directly, if they make it a one shot to gauge interest, or if they film it and then sit on it until the need a series to fill a programming slot.

James Gunn’s Trailer For The Belko Experiment Just Hit And It’s Intense

by Bill Watters
the-belko-experiment-image-john-c-mcginley

Well we’ve been waiting for this to hit ever since the micro-teaser appeared online a few days ago, but the new thriller written by Guardian of the Galaxy’s James Gunn has finally arrived. While we thought he’d been completely heads down last year working on Guardians 2, it turns out that he’d had a burst of inspiration from a dream he’d had and came up with The Belko Experiment.

Over a span of two weeks he pounded out the script. In March, Australian director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) came aboard to direct, with production taking place last summer but then it’d largely fallen off the radar. That is until the teaser appeared, and now we’ve got the full red-band trailer.

The gist of the story pretty much this:

On what appears to be a normal day at Belko Industries, Belko employees are horrified when they find out that they’ve become guinea pigs in a company-wide experiment which will lead them to either kill their fellow employees or be murdered themselves. The experiment is masterminded by a mysterious voice which is controlling the loud speaker and instructing the employees to slaughter each other by any means necessary.

The film stars 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s John Gallagher Jr. , Guardian’s  Sean Gunn and Michael RookerAdria ArjonaJohn C. McGinleyTony GoldwynDavid DastmalchianMelonie Diaz, and Josh Brener.

So think a cross of Die Hard and Hunger Games and put it through Gunns creative mind. I don’t know about you but I’m really hoping for something along the lines of something spontaneous and inspired out of left field like Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods.
