Show You Suck LIVE @ Empty Bottle

Show You Suck

Location: 1035 N Western Avenue, Chicago

The Empty Bottle is one of the venues in Chicago that has a special place in my heart, whether it’s their Windy City Soul nights or some of the Red Bull Sound Select events they’ve thrown; these guys are awesome. Tonight, Chicago’s own Show You Suck will headline a show with opening performances from DethBeds, Black Matt and Blunt, a solid lineup especially for FREE.99.

New Dramas ‘Black Mass’ and ‘Sicario’ Now Playing In Theaters

At last the day has come for Johnny Depp fans that have been dying to see him return to some more gritty and adult-oriented work to jump for joy! The new drama Black Mass from director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace), which chronicles the relationship between notorious Boston-mobster Whitey Bulger and FBI special agent John Connolly that saw much of Bulger’s competition taken off the streets, is now playing in theaters across the country. Reviews, thus far, have been somewhat surprising: Depp’s performance has been praised as a triumphant return to more in-depth characters, but the film, itself, plays out more like a gangster-parody movie. Either way it remains one of the year’s most highly anticipated films. Also appearing in the supporting cast are actors Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Exodus: Gods and Kings), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Fifth Estate, The Imitation Game), Dakota Johnson (The Social Network, 21 Jump Street), Kevin Bacon (Apollo 13, Mystic River), Peter Sarsgaard (Flightplan, Jarhead), and Adam Scott (Step Brothers, Parks & Recreation). Also playing in theaters is the new drama Sicario from director Denis Villeneuve (Enemy, Prisoners), with actors Emily Blunt (The Five-Year Engagement, Edge of Tomorrow), Josh Brolin (American Gangster, No Country For Old Men), and Benicio Del Toro (The Usual Suspects, Traffic), which revolves around the War on Drugs along the US-Mexican border. I think it’s a fair bet that your money will be well spent seeing either of these, so put both titles on your ‘Must-See’ list and enjoy the weekend!

Director Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Sicario’ Opening In Theaters This September 18th

Stepping away from the overdone comic-book genre that seems to be dominating big screens these days, a new film titled Sicario from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve will be opening in theaters this fall. The script comes from actor-turned-screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (White Rush, Sons of Anarchy) and centers upon an FBI agent who is recruited by a government task force to aid in the ongoing drug war happening at the US/Mexican border. Starring in the leading roles are actors Emily Blunt (The Adjustment Bureau, Edge of Tomorrow), Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, Men In Black 3), and Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Traffic), with Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, The Wolf of Wall Street), Jeffery Donovan (Burn Notice, Changeling) and Victor Garber (Titanic, Argo) also appearing in the supporting cast. The film received very positive reviews and an Official Selection nod at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will be open in theaters nationwide this September 18th, a pretty solid contender for Scott Cooper’s Black Mass with Johnny Depp, which opens the same weekend, so mark your calendars! The trailer is available here on MADE.

James Lapine adapted the screenplay for the film from the musical by himself and Stephen Sondheim, which opened on Broadway in 1987.

Director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) helmed the project for Walt Disney Pictures. You can watch the trailer here on MADE, then add it to your list of movies to choose from on Christmas Day.
