A new independent drama starring Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, A History of Violence) is seeing a limited theatrical release this Friday. Written and directed by Matt Ross (The Aviator, Silicon Valley), Captain Fantastic tells the story of a man who raises and home schools his six children in the countryside. After his wife commits suicide, however, they are forced to move into the city, and he soon discovers the children are not prepared for the realities of life in the city. The film won Un Certain Regard Award for directing at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and also took home the Golden Space Needle Award at the Seattle International Film Festival. Starring in the film are actors George McKay (Defiance, Pride), Samantha Isler (Sean Saves the World, Dig Two Graves), Annalise Besso (Standing Up, Oculus), Nicholas Hamilton (Long Shadows, Strangerland), Shree Crooks (Ray Donovan, American Horror Story), Charlie Shotwell (The Comedians, Shot Down), and comedic vets Steve Zahn (Saving Silverman, Sahara) and Kathryn Hahn (Step Brothers, Parks and Recreation).

Coming off of a 14-year hiatus, the beloved Portokalos family getting back together on the big screen for another Greek wedding celebration in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Writer/actress Nia Vardalos (Connie and Carla, I Hate Valentine’s Day) returned to write the new film and reprise her role of Toula under the direction of Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee, Everybody’s Fine). Carrying over from the original film are actors John Corbett (Raising Helen, Street Kings), Michael Constantine (The Hustler, Room 222), Lainie Kazan (You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Pixels), Andrea Martin (Wholly Moses, Soup for One), Gia Carides (The Spy Who Shagged Me, Year One), and Joey Fatone (Long Shot, The Opposite Sex). The original film received high praise from fans and critics, but didn’t really end in a way that would merit a sequel. Then again, Zoolander didn’t really merit a sequel after 15 years either, but we just suffered through the unimpressive Zoolander 2 last month, so all we can say for Greek Wedding 2 is that it doesn’t ruin a good thing like Zoolander did. The trailer is available here on MADE. Be sure to see all the big family theatrics on the big screen this weekend. Enjoy!
Logan, one of Chicago’s brightest up and coming MCs; recently survived a very close brush with death while driving on the Dan Ryan in Chicago. For those that don’t know, the Dan Ryan is the name of the southern corridor of Interstate 94 in Chicago, the shooting is said to have taken place between 43rd street & 55th street. Supposedly the assailants pulled up alongside of Logan’s white Impala letting off around 10 shots (8 shells found) directly into his driver side doors/windows, luckily the young artist managed to escape with just a graze wound to the head. Logan promptly released the above visual, to us it serves as a reminder, this video could just have easily been locked in the vault forever if he hadn’t been so lucky. Check out “Far Away” above and be on the look out for more from Logan.
The guys from How Ridiculous traveled all the way to Tasmania to complete what is now the world’s longest basketball shot. The Gordon Dam sits 126.5 meters tall, who knows how long it took them to make the shot but it’s impressive none the less. Check out the video below and stay tuned for more.
In the light of the shooting death of unarmed Michael Brown, Anonymous has taken to the web to warn the Ferguson Police department. If you don’t know, Michael Brown was an 18 year old kid (black kid) who was shot multiple times by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. The details surrounding what lead to his death are all over the place. Police reports and statements contradict one another as if they couldn’t get the “story” to everyone, some say he was wrestling the cops weapon away from him, others are saying he had his hands up surrendering, some reports even state that Brown was over 25 feet away from the shooting officer. Whatever the case, an 18 year old is now dead and was left soaking in a puddle of his own blood for hours. We will not forgive…..We will not forget.
