Sometimes fiction can be a reflection of reality. Lately, national news anchors losing their jobs over accusations of sexual harassment have been making headlines. As such, it has become the basis for Apple TV+’s newest series The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell. In it, Carell plays Mitch Kessler, a major news anchor who has been fired off from a national broadcast morning show, leaving his co-host Alex Levy (played by Aniston) to run the show on her own. But when Bradley Jackson, a new younger news reporter (played by Witherspoon), is chosen to be a co-anchor, Alex views the new addition as someone who could take her job. Soon, it becomes a battle of egos and doing whatever it takes to protect their standing or advance in the world of morning news television. Check out the full trailer here below.

For some, parenthood is easy and comes almost naturally. For others, it can be a bit of a challenge. And I cannot say that I am an authority figure on motherhood, given my clear lack of experience, but Jason Reitman‘s Tully, a comedy-drama starring Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davis, is probably one of the most honest depictions of what it is like to be a mother in a contemporary age. Check out my full review of the film here below.
Focus Features has released an official trailer for Tully, the latest from the team behind Juno, director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody.
The movie stars Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster, Mad Max: Fury Road) as a burnt out mother who gets a night nanny played by Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire, The Martian) to help her out and ends up forming a bond with her. Also starring is Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, Creep) and Ron Livingston (Office Space, Adaptation).

Creep 2 Directed by Patrick Brice
Written by Patrick Brice & Mark Duplass
Starring Desiree Akhavan, Mark Duplass, Karan Soni
Distributor: Orchard Entertainment
Release date: October 24, 2017 Video On Demand
In 2014, Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass co-wrote and starred in a low-budget indie horror film called Creep. It lived up to its name it spades as both Duplass was a creep and the film was creepy as hell. Brice and Duplass crafted a near-perfect example of minimalist filmmaking. It featured two actors, essentially one large set, and a “script” full of improv. The plot: a videographer answers a Craigslist ad to film the last day of a dying man’s life, leading to a one-camera feel light on editing and cuts, and putting the audience right there amongst the uncomfortableness. And Mark Duplass upped the “creep” factor to 11, creating what just might become a new horror icon. Now, Brice and Duplass return with Creep 2.
The Orchard recently released an official trailer for Creep 2, a follow-up to the 2014 indie horror favorite Creep.
The sequel follows a video artist, who enjoys creating intimacy with lonely men, answering an ad posted by a man claiming to be a serial killer. She hopes in doing this she’ll be able to create some fascinating and shocking material, but of course it may just end up being a little more than she anticipated.
