GRACE AND FRANKIE Key Art | ©2015 Netflix

In Netflix’s GRACE AND FRANKIE, now streaming its full thirteen-episode first season and preparing for its second, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as the title characters.

The two have baffled and tolerated each other for decades because their husbands, Grace’s Robert (Martin Sheen) and Frankie’s Sol (Sam Waterston), are law partners. It would be an understatement to say that Grace and Frankie – and their grown children – are thrown for a loop when Robert and Sol announce that they’ve been in love with each other for twenty years and […]Read On »

Stars: Richard Gere, Topher Grace, Odette Yustman, Stephen Moyer, Stana Katic, Martin Sheen Writers: Michael Brandt & Derek Haas Director: Michael Brandt Distributor: Image Entertainment Release Date: October 28, 2011 THE DOUBLE is a thriller set in Washington, D.C. that involves both the CIA and the FBI, yet is virtually apolitical.

It’s taken some time, but the title of SPIDER-MAN 4 aka the SPIDER-MAN reboot movie is finally here and it is … THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. That’s not surprising, considering the title is also shared with one of the longest running SPIDER-MAN comic book series. Also released is a photo of Garfield in full costume  – hopefully to quell fears that the behind-the-scenes footage of the Spidey-costume will look better when properly lit (it does). THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN opens July 3, 2012 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. […]Read On »
