New Biographical Drama ‘Truth’ Opening In Theaters This Friday

The new biographical drama Truth, which details the 60 Minutes episode in 2004 that investigated President George W. Bush’s military service, and the subsequent criticism that led to news anchor Dan Rather and his producer Mary Mapes loosing their jobs and effectively ending their careers, is opening in theaters this Friday, October 16th. Screenwriter James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) will be making his directorial debut with Truth, which he also adapted from Mary Mapes book. Starring in the two title roles are Oscar winners Robert Redford (All The President’s Men, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and Cate Blanchett (The Aviator, Blue Jasmine), with Topher Grace (In Good Company, Interstellar), Dennis Quaid (Vantage Point, The Day After Tomorrow), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, Get Him To The Greek), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, I Robot), and Dermont Mulroney (About Schmidt, The Grey). The trailer is available here on MADE. Given the talent backing up this screenplay I would expect that this will definitely be worth seeing. Enjoy!

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill Hitting Theaters Again This Summer With ’22 Jump Street’

22

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will be back in theaters this summer as the undercover cop-duo Jenko and Schmidt in the sequel to 2012’s 21 Jump Street, appropriately titled 22 Jump Street. The movie is once again being directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and the script was written by Michael Bacall (who wrote the screenplay for the first film) and Oren Uziel. The first film was an action-comedy adventure that followed two young cops who are assigned to the precinct at 21, Jump Street and are sent undercover to a high school in order to bust up a narcotics ring. The movie is based on the late 80’s TV hit 21 Jump Street, which starred Johnny Depp and Dustin Nguyen as cops working out of the same precinct. The film adaptation also featured Dave Franco, Ice Cube, and Nick Offerman, who will all reprise their roles for the sequel. The movie is scheduled for release on June 13. You can check out the trailer below. Enjoy!
