What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.
Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and
“What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling, I guess, for Aquaman. Until now. And for me, of course, I’m completely biased with James Wan, who I’ve done four films with — knowing that he’s at the helm and knowing what he … can do and what he will do, I’ll do anything with him.”
“I think the lure of Aquaman [is] because he hasn’t been overexposed on screen. And I don’t know Jason (Momoa) — I can’t wait to meet him. I was a huge fan even from the first episode of Game of Thrones,
When talking to Wbt Radio about his new film The Hollow Point, he talked a bit about his excitement to work with Wan again:

Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller star as a German father and daughter whose cordial relationship comes to a head when he drops in on her in Bucharest for an unannounced extended visit and his affinity for practical jokes wears on her more straitlaced sensibilities. It’s pure slapstick at times, but over the film’s 162-minute runtime (which, imposing as it may sound, doesn’t feel long enough) their strained dynamic comes to the fore.
The Hollow Point trailer has Ian McShane and Patrick Wilson as small town sheriffs under siege from a killer cartel conspiracy.
The trailer for the action thriller The Hollow Point seems to represent a slow, but steady topical trend in entertainment as the U.S.-Mexico border becomes more of an omnipresent subject, especially in the wake of election year politics. However, unlike another upcoming border-centric entry in Desierto, the central conflict of this film – pitting a pair of overwhelmed small town sheriffs against cartel ammo smugglers – seems to be fought on sides more conventionally delineated.
From the outset, the trailer for The Hollow Point showcases a land-scorched scenario in a desert town on the border who find themselves the centre of a clandestine deal with a Mexican drug cartel involving ammunition – namely loads of hollow-point bullets (designed to shred on impact,) to be smuggled into Mexico to arm some not-so-nice folks.
This one arrives on December 16, 2016, going up against Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (good luck with that, guys).

Not quite a bad lieutenant but certainly a compromised sheriff, his character Leland makes an enemy of a Mexican cartel by attempting to prevent it from smuggling guns and other contraband into America. Unlike McShane’s best-known role, for which he won a richly deserved Golden Globe and received an Emmy nomination, this one actually finds him in the present day.

Paolo Sorrentino’s much-hyped HBO series “The Young Pope” stars Jude Law as just that — a young pope, one who has some big ideas about how his unique papacy should look and how the Catholic Church should be run — alternately helped and hurt by various forces surrounding him. Early looks at the series have shown off the scope of Sorrentino’s wild vision and made it plain that the controversial new show is blazing its own path, much like the character it chronicles.

Neil Gaiman said
“When you write a beloved character (beloved with, or despite, or because of all his faults) like Mr. Wednesday, you get to watch the internet trying to cast the role. I've seen a hundred names suggested, but few make me grin like Ian McShane does. I've already been lucky enough to have him in one film (he was bright blue in it, animated, and probably Polish). Now I count myself even luckier: he's made the journey from ‘Lovejoy’ to ‘American Gods.’ Yesterday was Super Tuesday. Today is Wonderful Wednesday.”
Commented Bryan Fuller and Michael Green:
“Actor. Icon. And now god. It is a goddamn delight to
“I’ll give you one hint, I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that.”
Most likely McShane is referring to Sandor Clegane, played by Rory McCann. We assumed that The Hound had died from his wounds he received during his encounter with Brienne, but in the books it is thought that he is still alive and living as a character called the Gravedigger at the monastery on the Quiet Isle. McShane is likely playing the Elder Brother of the monastery,
