Last week on This Is Us, Jack Pearson and his sons and daughter had a rough day. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) went to see Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) band play and jealousy creeped in, especially after Ben (Sam Trammell) revealed they used to date. He told her he didn’t want her to go on tour, and went and spent Valentine’s Day alone. Kate (Chrissy Metz) apologized to Toby (Chris Sullivan) for making him feel bad. Kevin (Justin Hartley) was freaking out about the play’s opening night. But Randall (Sterling K. Brown) had the worst day of all. Willam (Ron Cephas Jones) is worse. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) had to go out of town. He blanked out at his really important work presentation, and has the shakes. He made a strange call to Kevin, who ran out on his play to hold a crying, rocking Randall.
Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Glenn Ficarra and John Requa‘s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot starring Tina Fey as a war correspondent stationed in Afghanistan. Though war can be a bit of a touchy subject, there have been a few satires that have found the balance of making light of it while also bringing it to our attention an informative way. With this movie, though, the film happens is based on Kim Barker‘s wartime memoir The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The trailer does have a rather short runtime, but in all honesty, I think it does get its point across about a journalist’s life in a war-torn country. Check out the trailer below.

While the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise has been a hit for Disney, they haven’t had much luck with some of their other films based on their theme park attractions (Haunted Mansion anyone?). But, it looks like Disney believes they have something good with Jungle Cruise, their upcoming film based on their Adventure Land ride. On the ride, guests board a boat cruise through an African jungle navigated by a (usually obnoxious) tour guide. A couple of weeks back, the film added some major appeal with the casting of Dwayne Johnson and the addition of Focus screenwriting duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra.
Now, Johnson has confirmed the film’s setting and tone in an all new Instagram post. Check it out here below.
Though Disney has found huge success taking their iconic ride Pirates of the Caribbean from theme park to big screen, their recent efforts have not fared well, though a Haunted Mansion reboot from Guillermo Del Toro could change that. But seeing as how that film is still under development, the studio is turning its attention to another original theme park ride. A new report says that Jungle Cruise is still on its way, and that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will having a starring role in the film.
