Trailer

Starring: Charlize, Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Toby Jones, Sofia Boutella




Stuntman turned director David Leitch, makes his feature directorial debut with an adaptation of Antony Johnston and Sam Hart's 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City. It’s about an undercover MI6 agent working in Berlin during the Cold War. Many are calling it a female James Bond series with action choreography inspired by John Wick. Charlize Theron is, of course, the natural pick to take on the role. She’s one of the foremost action heroines working today.

 Leitch may be a director to keep an eye on, he’s currently filming Deadpool 2. With so much experience in stunt work, he may just be the next big action movie director.

The Emoji Movie

Runtime: 1hr, 26mins  
Animation, Adventure, Comedy
PG
Trailer

Starring: T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Patrick Stewart, Maya Rudolph




This is the sort of movie that's just ridiculous enough to intrigue younger audiences to come out for it. It has a likable enough cast, but why does it exist? No, seriously, how did this movie ever get made?
