There is nothing more shocking and revealing than the truth. Scott Z. Burn‘s The Report is based on the true story of Daniel Jones’ investigation into the infamous Torture Report that followed after the September 11 attacks. The film takes a deep dive to uncover the heinous torture crimes committed by the CIA, and how they and the White House tried to cover it all up. While it is a slow and tedious political thriller, it is something that is filled with fast-paced dialogue, outstanding performances from Adam Driver and Annette Benning, and shocking revelations that will surely evoke anger and frustration.
Above all, The Report highlights the absolute necessity for investigative reporting. My full review here below.
Warner Brothers Pictures has released a teaser trailer for New Line Cinema’s Game Night, an action-comedy starring Rachel McAdams, Jason Bateman, Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston, Michael C. Hall, and Kyle Chandler.
The movie follows a group of couples getting together for their weekly game night, which this night has a murder mystery theme that turns out to be a little more intense than they’re prepared for. It’s directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who were writers on Horrible Bosses, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and Spider-Man: Homecoming. They made their feature directorial debut with Vacation. Mark Perez (Accepted) wrote the screenplay.

James Purefoy revels in the bit as he tells Dean how he is going to sic his following on him.
