When the trailers, images, posters and basically everything for LIVE BY NIGHT started to pour it immediately got fans and film buffs ready for Ben Affleck ’s rousing return to the directors after a 4-year gap since ARGO.

Review: Live By Night

Natalie Portman owns the room in first Jackie clip & TV spots

As I’ve said in previous articles JACKIE is one of my most anticipated films of the year. A primary reason for this is because, like most sane people, I’m a big fan of historical biopics with terrific performances leading the charge (hence what some may call my “unnatural” love for THE KING’S SPEECH). With what we’ve seen in the first trailer for the...
