Paterno is a Barry Levinson directed drama / biography about Joe Paterno, the most successful coach in college football history and how he became embroiled in Penn State’s Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal.
Riley Keough and Tess Frazer co-star…
I’ve been ready for a great Al Pacino performance. I’ve been waiting (for far too long in my opinion) and finally, it looks like this movie may just be what I’ve been waiting for. The scenes where Paterno is forced to face tough questions about institutional failure should be a highlight…. fingers crossed.
The Pirates Of Somalia is based on the true story of rookie journalist Jay Bahadur’s time with Somali pirates. Bahadur spent time with the pirates for the purpose of providing the first close-up look into who they are, the way they live and the forces that drive them. Directed by Bryan Buckley; Evan Peters, Al Pacino and Barkhad Abdi star..
This could be interesting. Though, at the same time this trailer could have done a better job of selling the movie. I’m not in love with the way it ends. On a separate note, it’s good to see Abdi of Captain Philips (2013) playing a non-pirate role, as far as I can tell.
Al Pacino, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow are the stars of Hangman, a Johnny Martin directed thriller about a homicide detective and a criminal profiler on the hunt for a serial killer…
Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman’s Se7en (1995) has me believing that in every serial killer movie, a member of the investigative team is going to die, or at the very least be targeted by the serial killer. I’m tuning in because of Pacino and the story. I actually haven’t watched a good serial killer drama since the earlier seasons of The Mentalist. I live in hope.
