‘Jungleland’ Trailer: Charlie Hunnam and Jack O’Connell Are in for the Fight of Their Lives

Published

In JunglelandCharlie Hunnam and Jack O’Connell are brothers who travel across the country for a high-stakes fighting tournament. This premise sounds similar to Warrior, the Tom Hardy-Joel Edgerton flick, but based on the trailer below, Jungleland has new things to offer. The film played at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and is headed to Premium Video-On-Demand and for Digital in November.

Jungleland Trailer

In Jungleland, “Stanley (Charlie Hunnam) and Lion (Jack O’Connell) are two brothers struggling to stay relevant in the underground world of bare-knuckle boxing. When Stanley fails to pay back a dangerous crime boss (Jonathan Majors), they’re forced to deliver an unexpected traveler as they journey across the country for a high-stakes fighting tournament. While Stanley trains Lion for the fight of his life, a series of events threaten to tear the brothers apart, but their love for one another and belief in a better life keep them going in this gripping drama that proves family pulls no punches.”

I missed Jungleland at TIFF last year, but I will say this is an effective trailer. It’s well put together and does a good job selling a melancholy tone for the flick, which is not what I was expecting from the synopsis.

“I’d always wanted to write sort of an unconventional love story,” director Max Winkler said in an interview with Deadline, “and this one is about brothers. It’s sort of like the male dramas of American film in the ’70s—Bob Rafelson movies like The King of Marvin Gardens and Five Easy Pieces, and Hal Ashby’s The Last Detail. I love Paul Newman in Hud. I just loved these movies about masculinity, and how we mask our true emotion with these sort of faux facades of toughness, and that, paired with how much I love John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, was the early starting point for me, when I started writing this. I knew I wanted to make a movie about toxic masculinity and brotherhood, [because] this type of love story is not something you see a lot. We sent it to Charlie with our fingers crossed, and it was then that we really started kicking in gear.”

Name dropping all those titles sure goes a long way toward making me interested in seeing this thing. The screenplay comes from Winkler, Theodore B. Bressman, and David Branson Smith, and in addition to Charlie Hunnam and Jack O’Connell, the cast includes Jessica Barden and Jonathan Majors. Jungleland arrives on VOD and digital purchase on November 11.

Daisy Edgar-Jones Joins Drama ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ With Producer Reese Witherspoon

Published

By

“Normal People” star Daisy Edgar-Jones has boarded the drama “Where the Crawdads Sing” with Reese Witherspoon producing through her Hello Sunshine banner.

The project is based on Delia Owens’ debut novel, which has sold nearly 8.5 million copies worldwide. The story is set against the backdrop of the mid-20th century South and centers on a young woman named Kya, who is abandoned by her family and raises herself all alone in the marshes outside of her small town. However, when her former boyfriend is found dead, Kya is thrust into the spotlight, instantly branded by the local townspeople and law enforcement as the prime suspect for his murder.

The script is written by Academy Award-nominated writer Lucy Alibar with Olivia Newman directing. Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter are producing for Hello Sunshine. Elizabeth Gabler, Erin Siminoff and Aislinn Dunster are overseeing the project for 3000 Pictures. Alibar received a Humantitas Prize and Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay with Benh Zeitlin for “Beasts of the Southern Wild.”

In September, Edgar-Jones signed on for the lead role in Legendary’s social thriller “Fresh.” “Normal People,” based on Sally Rooney’s best-selling novel, broke a streaming record for BBC Three. Edgar-Jones stars in the series as Marianne Sheridan, opposite Paul Mescal’s Connell Waldron, as they become romantically involved during their final days in secondary school and during their undergraduate years at Trinity College Dublin.

Other credits for the British actor include the mini-series “War of the Worlds” and the independent coming-of-age feature film “Pond Life.” She is repped by UTA, Hamilton Hodell and Public Eye Communications.

Jennifer Garner discusses the paparazzi’s intrusion on their family life

Published

By

Jennifer Garner has shed some insight into the paparazzi’s impact on her daily life and how it has hurt her children’s wellbeing.

Garner, 48, who shares children Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, Samuel, eight, with her ex-husband Ben Affleck, discussed their lack of privacy during an appearance on PBS’ Tell Me More With Kelly Corrigan.

“For 10 years,” Garner said, “there were at the very least six cars and often 20 outside of our house, and outside of school, and at the pediatrician’s. And you’re begging them, ‘Please step aside from the pediatrician’s door. I have a sick kid. Please.'”

The actress appreciated that it’s the “cost of doing business” but that it got completely out of hand.

She said the paparazzi were “causing car accidents all the time.” Garner added, “I’d go through a yellow light and there would be 15 cars that would go through the red light without compunction.”

In 2013, Garner and fellow actress Halle Berry testified in court in support of a bill to criminalise this level of harassment. The bill intended to make it a crime to photograph someone’s children without their legal guardian’s consent.

She detailed how her daughter, who was five years old at the time, felt “scared” of the photographers.

“‘I’m scared of them,'” she recalled her daughter words. “‘They look like guns.'”

Later that year, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill into law.

The actress also discussed how her 2015 separation from Affleck was a “self-fulfilling prophecy.”

“I think there’s something about seeing yourselves reflected in news of some kind — and whether it’s true or not,” she explained.

“If it’s true and you are starting to be serious with someone and they start saying, ‘Well, when are they gonna be engaged?’ It’s almost like you just want to get there so that you can complete that and just maybe it will die down for a second.”
