Rating: R Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare, Hiroyuki Sanada Writers: Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick Director: Daniel Espinosa Distributor: Columbia/Sony Release Date: March 24, 2017 The new movie LIFE has a very obvious ancestor.

LIFE indeed is done pretty well, though it’s got a couple of confusing action sequences and, surprisingly, no jump scares. Director […]Read On »
