With the release of Can You Ever Forgive Me, we will be witness to Melissa McCarthy making a leap to a significant dramatic role. There have been numerous other instances of this comedian turned serious actor formula – so in honour of McCarthy’s new forray, here are my 5 favourite examples of funny actors in serious roles (in no particular order).
If you are unsure about this week’s DVD, Blu-Ray, or digital releases, maybe my site’s reviews can help.
I have just finished attending my first ever film festival in Toronto. I saw 20 movies this year which is a decent number for my first time (hopefully I will see more in subsequent years) so for those wondering what I thought of them, I have ranked them in a list below and included their release dates. I also encourage that you read my individual reviews as well.
This will be one of many reviews during this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. I technically didn’t see it at the festival but since it was originally at the festival and had its theatrical release during the festival, I will include it with the rest of our coverage. If you would like to keep up with our content, click here.
Here is a look at the movies we will be covering this week, time permitting:
Featuring trailers of The Current War, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Jungle, Flatliners, Mudbound, Early Man, Mother!, Daddy’s Home 2, and A Bad Moms Christmas.
Featuring trailers of The Vault, The Only Living Boy in New York, Rememory, Unlocked, 6 Days, Bushwick, It, Mother!, Home Again, and Tulip Fever.
Now that the year is winding down, take a look at my updated list of most anticipated films of 2017 for the Fall and Winter (you can see the old list here). This list features some new additions while some others have new release dates and as always, you can find links to relevant site posts (if applicable). There are a lot of films below but you’ll understand why soon enough. Obviously release dates are subject to change depending on location.
Featuring trailers of The Florida Project, Molly’s Game, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), Rememory, Wonder, The Death of Stalin, The Limehouse Golem, mother!, and Duck Duck Goose.
This movie has been getting a lot of attention and now we finally have a trailer. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer and directed by Darren Aronofsky, mother! is about a couple’s relationship (Lawrence and Bardem) being tested when uninvited guests (Harris and Pfeiffer) arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. Lawrence and Bardem appear to have the perfect life but that would be a boring movie. Out of all the actors they could have cast to be the creepy couple, I would never have guessed Harris and Pfeiffer although it seems like it can work. The trailer was just so darn creepy to watch and I can’t wait to see all the creepiness and these four great actors together. mother! will be released September 15th, 2017.
