First Harrowing Trailer For WACO Staring Taylor Kitsch and Michael Shannon

Earlier today we got our first look at Taylor Kitsch (Lone Survivor, John Carter) in the role of David Koresh rocking one crazy mullet. Now the first trailer for the six-part series has been released and this looks like a great series that is going to be an intense ride. 

The trailer also gives us our first look at several of the other stars in the series, which also include Michael Shannon, John Leguizamo, Andrea Riseborough, Rory Culkin, Melissa Benoist, Paul Sparks, Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim, and Julia Garner

The series will tell the true story of the standoff between the FBI, ATF, and Texas state law enforcement and the Branch Davidians cult. The siege lasted 51 days and by the time it was over, 76 people were killed including the cult's leader David Koresh. The whole thing started when the group was suspected of weapons violations. When the ATF attempted to raid the ranch, all hell broke loose.

In February, 1993, the eyes of the world converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community located just outside Waco, TX. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) had just conducted a massive raid on David Koresh and his followers, known as the Branch Davidians. After what became the longest gun battle in U.S. law enforcement history, four ATF agents and six civilians were dead and dozens more were wounded. A 51-day standoff ensued, and the conflict ended after an FBI assault led to a fire that engulfed Mount Carmel, killing 76 men, women, and children.
What precipitated the ATF raid, and what transpired over the ensuing standoff, remains one of the most misunderstood stories in American history. Waco is based on two biographies, “A Place Called Waco,” by Branch Davidian David Thibodeau, one of the nine survivors of the final fire on April 19, 1993, and “Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator,” written by the FBI’s Head of Crisis Negotiation Unit Gary Noesner.

The series will premiere in January 2018 on Paramount Network. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think.

Just a few weeks ago, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson was in Japan doing promotions for the upcoming eighth episode of the Star Wars saga. During that visit, Johnson made an appearance at a historic temple near the ancient capital of Kyoto. As StarWars-jp.com and The Kyoto Shimbun reported, he was there as part of the unveiling of a Star-Wars-themed Japanese folding screen, a piece done in black ink by artist Masayuki Kojo.

With Sonic Mania being such a big success and created by third-party developers, one can't help but get a little excited for the Sonic Amateur Game Expo this year. After all, anyone who thinks Sega is going to walk away from the most successful Sonic game they've had in the past decade in a half is crazy and I wouldn't be surprised if a few executives have their eye on this year's event.

Check out a preview of some of the games on deck for the expo this year, and let us know what you think!

 Phil Lord and Chris Miller Will Direct ARTEMIS a Sci-Fi Heist Film Set on The Moon

phil-lordandchris-miller-will-direct-artemis-a-sci-fi-heist-film-set-on-the-moon-social.jpg

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to direct their first film project since being let go from the Han Solo movie. The film is called Artemis, and it's based on an upcoming book from Andy Weir, the author of The Martian.

This seriously sounds like a great project for them! It's a sci-fi "adrenaline-charged crime caper" film that's set on the moon! It's also said to feature "smart, detailed world-building based on real science." Here's the story description from Deadline:

It centers on Jasmine Bashara, aka Jazz, just another too-smart, directionless twentysomething chafing at the constraints of her small town and dreaming of a better life. Except the small town happens to be named Artemis—and it’s the first and only city on the moon. She’s got debts to pay, her job as a porter barely covers the rent, and her budding career as a smuggler isn’t exactly setting her up as a kingpin, much to her disappointment. So when the chance at a life-changing score drops in her lap, Jazz can’t say no, and she finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.

This is the kind of story that has the makings of a really cool movie, and I'm looking forward to seeing what Lord and Miller and up doing with it. Seems like a project that they could have a lot of fun with. 

The movie is set up at Fox and New Regency and it's being produced by X-Men franchise producer Simon Kinberg. According to the report, this is a big priority for the studio.  Does it sound like a movie that you would want to see?

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese Team Up Again For a Teddy Roosevelt Film Project

leonardo-dicaprio-and-martin-scorsese-team-up-again-for-a-teddy-roosevelt-film-project-social.jpg

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are teaming up for another film project together. They will be making a drama about Teddy Roosevelt. Dicaprio will talk on the lead role and Scorsese will direct. Deadline offers the following breakdown of Roosevelt's life and what made DiCaprio want to get back involved with the project. 

Roosevelt had an eventful life filled with military exploits, and a political track where he moved from New York Governor to vice president to become at 42 the youngest president when President William Mckinley was assassinated in 1901. His most enduring achievements though came in the area of conservation, including his work around reserves, preserves, national parks and forests. That is of particular interest for DiCaprio and why he is resurrecting playing the subject after a previous attempt at the film years ago didn’t pan out.

Roosevelt is the like the definition of an all-American hero. He just lived such an incredible life and did so much in helping shape our nation. On top of that and his political career, he was quite and adventurer. There are so many great stories that surround him and I think it's awesome that DiCaprio and Scorsese are going to make a movie based on certain aspects of his life. It's about time! 

Scorsese and DiCaprio have worked together on multiple films including Gangs of New York, The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Departed and The Wolf Of Wall Street. They are also developing The Devil In The White City and Killers of The Flower Moon and to do together. They also might end up working together on the Joker Origin film, if Warner Bros. gets their way.

Intense Trailer For John Travolta’s True Crime Drama GOTTI

intense-trailer-for-john-travoltas-true-crime-drama-gotti-social.jpg

John Travolta takes on the role of crime boss John Gotti in the upcoming film Gotti. It looks like he gives an incredible performance in the movie. It's good to see the actor taking on good projects again. This is probably one of the best movie roles he's taken on in a long time. This looks like it could be a great film and I'll definitely be checking it out. 

Gotti follows infamous crime boss John Gotti’s (Travolta) rise to become the “Teflon Don” of the Gambino Crime Family in New York City. Spanning three decades and recounted by his son John Jr. (Spencer Lofranco), GOTTI examines Gotti’s tumultuous life as he and his wife (Kelly Preston) attempt to hold the family together amongst tragedy and multiple prison sentences.

Travolta is also joined in the film by Pruitt Taylor Vince (Monster, Heroes Reborn), Stacy Keach (American History X, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), Chris Mulkey (Captain Phillips, First Blood), and William DeMeo. Travolta’s real-life wife, Kelly Preston, and their daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta, are also in the movie.

Gotti was directed by Kevin Connolly, who played ‘E’ on Entourage, and it was written by Leo Rossi and Lem Dobbs (Dark City, Haywire).

Lionsgate will release the film in theaters and On Demand on December 15th, 2017.
