Watch: TAG Trailer | In Theaters June 15


For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!”

This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready.

Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy TAG shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

TAG is directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s Broad City), with a starring ensemble cast led by Ed Helms (The Hangover movies, We’re the Millers), Jake Johnson (TV’s New Girl), Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy), Rashida Jones (TV’s Parks and Recreation), Isla Fisher (Now You See Me), Leslie Bibb (Iron Man 2), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), with Jon Hamm (Baby Driver, TV’s Mad Men) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Town).

The TAG screenplay was written by Rob McKittrick (Waiting) and Mark Steilen (TV’s Mozart in the Jungle), screen story by Mark Steilen, and based on the Wall Street Journal article entitled It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It, by Russell Adams. The film is produced by Todd Garner and Mark Steilen, with executive producers Hans Ritter, Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter.

The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Larry Blanford, editor Josh Crockett, production designer David Sandefur, and costume designer Denise Wingate.

TAG is set for a June 15, 2018 release.

Forgiven Films, a Division of GVN Releasing, Acquires Its First Film, The Latin Dance-Themed Drama SHINE

Forgiven Films, a Division of GVN Releasing, Acquires Its First Film, The Latin Dance-Themed Drama SHINE
Set to the Soundtracks of Salsa’s Golden Era and Today’s hottest Urban Latino Acts, Anthony Nardolillo’s directorial debut was Kickstarter’s highest-funded Latino narrative film

Forgiven Films, the newly-launched division of GVN Releasing, has acquired the North American rights to Anthony Nardolillo’s “SHINE,” which he directed and independently produced via 13 Paces with producer Sandra Varona and in partnership with Sugar Studios LA and The Exchange.

The drama, starring David Zayas (“Dexter,” “Blue Bloods”), Alysia Reiner (“OITNB”) and world-renowned dancers Gilbert Saldivar (Mexican-American actor and choreographer Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Madonna) and Jorge “Ataca” Burgos (internationally acclaimed Bachata instructor making his acting debut), will open in theaters nationwide in the third quarter of 2018.

“SHINE” is the story of two brothers, once celebrated Salsa dancers, who are reunited years after the death of their father, on opposing ends of a city in full bloom gentrification.

 Set in New York City with a cast that includes a legion of renowned Latin and Pop music dancers, the film reminds audiences about the power of community.

“’SHINE’ is a timely narrative framed by Latin entertainment at its best,” Geno Taylor at GVN Releasing said. “Its multi-platform marketability is the result of a passionate team of creators with a culturally unifying message and we are proud to bring the film to audiences.”

Forgiven Films will look to expand upon GVN’s distribution model to focus on wide market appeal movies with unique voices for underserved audiences, while GVN will continue to release faith-based and family titles.

Steven Belmont, President of Forgiven Films, said, “SHINE is a passionate, vibrant and very timely film. It is the perfect film to launch Forgiven Films, where we will aim to share unique voices and stories and provide quality entertainment to underserved audiences.”

Filmmaker Anthony Nardolillo said, “’SHINE’ is not just a dance film. It speaks to our times both culturally and politically. Forgiven Films and GVN have given us the platform to bring our movie to an audience anxious to see themselves and their lives portrayed on screen, thus opening the doors to future projects for 13 Paces and other U.S. Latino filmmakers. Latin dancing continues to build in popularity each year and is currently featured on several top-rated television shows. The message of taking pride in one’s community and heritage couldn’t be more urgent and timely. ‘SHINE’ fuses these elements with a fire and excitement set to a dynamic soundtrack of Latin music all-stars combined with a powerful storyline. This film is told in our own voice, with a raw, multi-talented, and diverse cast of performers that Hollywood films have not shared enough of, until now.”

“In 2017 Latin music and dance globally dominated record sales, streams and headlines in unprecedented numbers. There is no better time than now for a film like this,”Brian O’Shea, of The Exchange, said. “We are excited to be working with Forgiven Films on their first feature. Their passion is palpable and the theatrical commitment the US release can have a very positive effect on SHINE’s international value.”

The deal was negotiated by Steven Belmont for GVN Releasing/Forgiven Films and Brian O’Shea from The Exchange on behalf of the filmmakers.

Set in a Puerto Rican neighborhood of New York City, where most of the actors hail from, SHINE debuted on the festival circuit two days after Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico and a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged Houston, the hometown of Mexican-American co-star, Gilbert Saldivar.

The film was crowned with the Audience Award for “Best Feature” at the HBO-sponsored and Ava DuVernay-supported 2017 Urbanworld Film Festival in September and the screening sold out in 48 hours, which was the fastest in festival history.

In October 2017, a private Beverly Hills benefit screening of “SHINE” was held in support of the cast and longtime friend and tour dancer Gilbert Saldivar who was raising funds for hurricane relief efforts with the non-profit organization Voices for Puerto Rico.
Other celebrities such as Christina Aguilera were also in attendance to support the cause.Passionate and vibrant, “SHINE” transmits the pulse of the barrio with scores from the golden era of Salsa, by way of a partnership with Fania Records and hits by Sony Music Latin titans Marc Anthony and Romeo Santos, to New York hip-hop flavor by the late GRAMMY Award- winning Puerto Rican rapper, Big Pun and rap-producer duo, The Beat Nuts.

World Series Viewers Were Treated To A Special Look At STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Dodger and Astro fans were anxiously watching Game 7 of the World Series as a special “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” aired.

In Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. 

The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is written and directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman. J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski and Jason McGatlin are the executive producers.

The dark trailer shows some much anticipated scenes, such as more lightsabers and flight battles.

As this spot is called “Awake,” it was expected to see some Force powers awaken and still there’s more questions brought up from the way the trailer leans to a dark training by Luke Skywalker.

Where does this trailer want the fans to think the story is going?

Will this cut of the trailer be the most accurate to the mood of the new film?

Final JUSTICE LEAGUE Trailer Is Out

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

This new trailer shows much more of the “Justice League” story, with major action from all key components of the Justice League.

Although Clark Kent makes an appearance, it seems to be in a dream sequence, is that all audiences will see of the man of steel?

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

With character posters released on Oct.3, a final trailer with each of the members battling it out will have fans looking forward to the movie, out in theaters Nov. 17.

LEATHERFACE (2017) | Trailer Review

Hey there, everyone! I’m excited to announce a new writer for According to Kristin! Andrew is a HUGE fan of horror movies and will be reviewing trailers & movies for you all to enjoy!

You can find him on Facebook HERE.

Here is his review of the trailer for LEATHERFACE, which will be released exclusively on DirecT on September 21, 2017. The film will also have a limited theatrical run and full VOD release on October 20, 2017.

leatherface_xlgSteely-eyed, perspiration running down his big bald head, and chomping at the bit for a long-sought victory, Charlie Brown grinds his foot into the mud and starts barreling down.  He’s staring down that pigskin like a bull who’s just seen every shade of red imaginable.  Moving like a freight train, the laces are now in his crosshairs, and with each passing step, his worry fades, his confidence grows, and he thinks to himself, “Maybe, just maybe this time, I’m gonna kick that freakin’ thing a mile long”.

…annnnnnd then Lucy yanks the football away again, leaving poor schmuck Chuck flat on his back.

If you’re a fan of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, that’s pretty much been your last decade-and-a-half.  We’ve been treated to a remake no one particularly asked for, a prequel to a remake that no one particularly asked for, and let’s not forget Texas “Do Your Thing, Cuz” Chainsaw 3D, the plot-hole ridden follow-up to the original no one particularly asked for.  Despite the cynicism, each time that rusty old chainsaw revved itself up in the trailer, you couldn’t help but get excited.  Perhaps the movie ended up being actually pretty fun (2003’s Chainsaw), or a giant Lone Star mess (2013’s 3D), but trailers are made to entice, they’re made to rouse expectations, and if they draw you in to plunk down some cash, they’ve done their job.

Enter the freshly-released red-band trailer for Leatherface, Lionsgate and Millennium Films’ upcoming prequel to a 43 year-old horror legend… that yet again, no one particularly asked for.  Years of teasing would have you be right to feel cynical.  Let’s use use the Oreo theory:  1974’s classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre would be the delicious center cream portion, with 2013’s Texas Chainsaw 3D and this year’s Leatherface representing the chocolate wafers that surround it on the outside– and there’s probably more movies in this franchise than there are people who prefer the chocolate in an Oreo.

As the title would suggest, Leatherface is an origin story surrounding the mystery of the titular character, who until now, has always remained a silent, brooding force.  In the events prior to 1974’s original, four young inmates kidnap a nurse while escaping from a mental institution, and go on a bloodbath of a road trip, while being pursued by a revenge-striken lawman (Stephen Dorff).  An intriguing setup to the classic story, it sounds like it will mix some of the best elements of The Devil’s Rejects into the recipe.

Even with recent history doing everything in its power to pour cold water all over this trailer- it does deliver all the Texas Chainsaw goodies in oh-so delicious spades- a creepy lullaby soundtrack, skin mask-sewing, old decrepit barns, hanging decorative animal bones, screaming chases in the woods, that unmistakable guttural rattle of the saw, buckets of blood, and of course, a derriere-angled walk through the fields.  Leatherface’s trailer doesn’t give too much away as far as plot, but we do get some intriguing new treats– the youngest member of the Sawyer family given his first chainsaw as a birthday present, a brutal diner massacre, and a child sporting a giant pig head.  If all of that didn’t begin to win you back, there’s also the heading on the trailer that this film is directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the duo behind 2007’s blood-drenched masterpiece, Inside (À l’intérieur).

You know what?  I’m sold.  Oreos and cynicism can take a hike.  Maybe there’s the chance it’ll all end up like the recent questionable Chainsaw entries when Leatherface greets us this fall, but hike Lucy the ball for another round cause maybe, just maybe this time we’ll kick it a mile long.

PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN | NEW Trailer released! | #MarstonMovie


Annapurna Pictures has just released the first trailer for PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN! In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. The film is directed by Angela Robinson and stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton.

SYNOPSIS: In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

THE GLASS CASTLE | Movie Trailer | Find Beauty In the Struggle | #theglasscastle


What’s up, peeps?

I’m stoked for this movie because, as a book nerd, I read the memoir by Jeannette Walls and was captivated from the very first page. To see it being brought to fruition as a film is only a testament to its greatness. This story is heartbreaking, it’s imaginative, it’s dysfunctional, it’s beautiful and tragic all rolled up into one big ball of emotions. Definitely worth your time!

So read the memoir and check out the trailer below! Let me know if you’ll be checking it out in theaters like I will be!

SYNOPSIS: A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who’s an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty. 



THE GLASS CASTLE will be released in theaters August 11!

AMERICAN ASSASSIN | Red Band Trailer! | #AmericanAssassin


Ooooooh … I’m excited for this one!! This movie has a great cast, a fantastic storyline and the trailer certainly evokes a strong interest in checking out the rest of the film. It looks like the perfect balance of action, drama and edge-of-your-seat craziness!

The story centers around Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a man who is no stranger to loss.  After losing his girlfriend/fiancé in a terrorist attack, he’s hell bent on seeking revenge. He’s sent to train with a Cold War veteran named Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton … yes, you heard correctly!) and together they’re led on an action-packed mission.

Based on the #1 Bestseller by the late Vince Flynn, AMERICAN ASSASSIN looks like it’ll be a strong contender among recent action films. What do you think? Are you as excited as I am??
