Watch Matt Damon And Jason Sudeikis Star In The Full Trailer For ‘Downsizing’

Are you ready to get weird? ‘Cause we’re about to get weird. The first full trailer for ‘Downsizing‘ was released this week, and we don’t know what to think. Are we intrigued by it? Or are we just confused and slightly bored?

Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig star in the film, which premiered to mostly positive reviews at last month’s Venice Film Festival. Basically, thanks to climate change and overpopulation, resources around the world are starting to dwindle. The solution to this? Scientists shrinking people down to five inches tall.

The process is irreversible, but the good news is you get to live like kings and queens because everything is cheaper when you’re super small. A $52,000 nest egg turns into $12.5 million once you shrink.

In addition to Damon and Wiig, you’ll also find Jason Sudeikis, Hong Chau and Christoph Waltz. It’s scheduled to hit theaters December 22, 2017. Check out the trailer below…

Official Cast, Movie Poster, Synopsis, And Title Revealed For ‘James Bond 24’


The wait is over, Bond fans. We now have the official title for the 24th James Bond film: Spectre. For those of you who don’t remember the significance of Spectre, allow us to refresh your memory real quick. It’s an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. It’s a worldwide terrorist organization, which made its first appearance in the 1961 novel, Thunderball.

In addition to revealing the title, director Sam Mendes also announced the official Bond car (seen down below), and the official cast for the film.

Sam Mendes failed to mention the name of his character during the press conference; however, the official Twitter account revealed that he will be playing Oberhauser.

Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color) will also join the cast as Madeleine Swann. David Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) will play the villainous henchman, Mr. Hinx, and Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded) will play Lucia Sciarra.

Filming for Spectre is expected to begin tomorrow. It is expected to be released worldwide November 6th, 2015. You can check out the official synopsis and movie poster down below.

“A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”


Movie Review: Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

hr_Muppets_Most_Wanted_11The Muppets have a formula that works for all ages

3.5 stars

The Muppets have always had a place in my heart. I grew up with the Muppets, back when Jim Henson was still alive and the Muppets had their own weekly show. While the Muppet franchise isn’t as strong as it once was, it might be possible to breathe new life into it.

Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” has an all star cast including Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon. The movie takes place across several places including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. The Muppets are entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine – the World’s Number One Criminal. Complicating matters is that Constantine is a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog.

The Muppets still have their magic. Fast paced songs and kid friendly humor dominate, but the movie is sure to please anyone who loved the Muppets when they were growing up.

The movie makes fun of spy movies, prison break movies and a plan to steal the Crown Jewels. None of the jokes are child inappropriate, but parents will see the humor as well.


Of course, it’s Disney, so there is the to be expected money grab. What surprised me is that it wasn’t ridiculous. A few product placements were thrown in, but it wasn’t over the top. What advertisements were done were more tongue in cheek style advertisements.

One thing missing from this installment was Jason Segal and Amy Adams. They truly made the Muppets shine. While Tina Fey was good, she really couldn’t compete and didn’t seem to have the same level of chemistry as the child-like Segal.

The puppeteers are still working their magic, and the script itself carries off three different stories equally well. One is Kermit in a Siberian Gulag. Another is his evil look-a-like touring with the Muppets. In the third, Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell) partners with Muppet Sam the Eagle (voiced by Eric Jacobson) to hunt down the international jewel thief. Eventually, all three intersect and everything gets resolved.



The musical numbers are upbeat and fun, though a bit generic and not that memorable. However, the Muppets have been rocking since the 70s. There’s only so much they can do with them.

The Muppets feels like a kids movie aimed at grownups and fans of the Muppets will not be disappointed. All of the old favorites are there. The franchise is going on 35 years, but still manages to feel fresh.

Currently performing at number 2 at the box office, the Muppets prove they have a formula that works for all ages, from children all the way through adults. Muppet’s Most Wanted is worth the watch, due to an entertaining cast and an adherence to the style that made the Muppets famous.  Watch the official Trailer below!
