An official trailer has been released for Killing Gunther, an action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie is written and directed by Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam, who is making his directorial debut.
The story follows a group of assassins who have grown sick and tired of Gunther (Schwarzenegger), the greatest hitman alive. To fix this problem, they join forces in hopes of simply making him not alive anymore. An easy enough plan on paper, but one which proves to be a tad bit more challenging than anticipated.

If you know me or if you read the site, you probably wouldn’t think of me as someone who was into the lovey-dovey romance movies. Truth is, while I really get sickened by the ridiculously cheesy and unrealistic “rom-coms” that are mass produced to steal the incomes of a multitude of tissue-wielding women, I can admit that I enjoy a well-done romance movie from time to time. I’ve never been much of a relationship kind of person, but have still been considered something of a romantic at times, and so long as the movie is entertaining and doesn’t get out of hand, I’m down for a viewing!
Enter The Good Guy: a new film from Roadside Attractions and director Julio DePietro about a young, seemingly-perfect couple living the big city life. The movie debuted last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and follows Beth (Alexis Bledel), a sweet and beautiful young woman with a good job and a great group of friends in New York City. Beth has been seeing Tommy (Scott Porter), a Wall Street hot shot, for a few months now, and all seems to be going very well with the couple who are preparing to head to Italy on a business/vacation trip. At first the pair appear to be living the modern day fairy tale life, but when Beth meets Daniel (Bryan Greenberg) — who just happens to be the new member of Tommy’s team at work — she begins wondering if she’s where she wants to be. Tommy has all those good looks females desire and a big money job, while Daniel shows her a new, much more sensitive side to the male species. This of course creates that age-old dilemma for women: do you go for all the looks and financial security, or do you want someone who “gets you”?
