Going in Style is the rare remake that is better than the original.
That’s because it creates a plausible (if not entirely believable) set of circumstances in which three octogenarians are forced to consider the unlikely remedy of robbing a bank – and are smart enough to do it.
Warner Bros. has released a couple snippets of film to tease the release of the first trailer of Justice League on Saturday – one featuring Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and one featuring Batman (Ben Affleck).
When I first heard that Warner Bros. was turning CHiPs into an action-comedy movie I was a bit leery – but then it occurred to me that they might turn it into a 21 Jump Street kind of update.
The first trailer premiered last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live and it seems like that’s what’s happened. Now I’m not so sure it was a good idea. I laughed at the trailer, but not nearly as much as I was expecting to.
CHiPs stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as Officers Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. It opens on March 24th. The trailer follows the jump.
Collateral Beauty is a story about grief, recovery and redemption – themes also found in Kenneth Lonergan’s brilliant Manchester By Sea. It angered me because it appeared to be an entirely different movie than the one suggested by the trailers – and by being a remarkably treacly film on its own merits.
