Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage.

Amazon’s 7500 Trailer Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt Released

Amazon Prime Video has released the official 7500 trailer for the upcoming thriller starring Golden Globe nominee Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, 50/50, (500) Days of Summer) as a co-pilot of a plane hijacked by terrorists.

It looks like a routine day at work for Tobias (Gordon-Levitt), a soft-spoken young American co-pilot on a flight from Berlin to Paris as he runs through the preflight checklist with Michael (Carlo Kitzlinger), the pilot, and chats with Gökce (Alyn Tezel), his flight-attendant girlfriend. But shortly after takeoff, terrorists armed with makeshift knives suddenly storm the cockpit, seriously wounding Michael and slashing Tobias’ arm. Temporarily managing to fend off the attackers, a terrified Tobias contacts ground control to plan an emergency landing. But when the hijackers kill a passenger and threaten to murder more innocent people if he doesn’t let them back into the cockpit, this ordinary man faces an excruciating test.

The movie also stars Carlo Kitzlinger (Berlin, I Love You) and Alyn Tezel (X Company). 7500 is directed by Patrick Vollrath (Everything Will Be Okay) who co-wrote the film with Senad Halilbasic (Fatalis).

George Carlin Documentary in the Works

Golden Globe-nominated director Judd Apatow is ready to dive into George Carlin’s 50-year career and the legacy it left in a new documentary.

“I’m about to start work with my partner Michael Bonfiglio on a documentary about George Carlin,” Apatow said. “So I’m looking forward to watching a lot of Carlin interviews and specials. I think his work turned out to be very prophetic.”
