‘Gringo’ Trailer: David Oyelowo Gets Caught Up in a Mexican Drug Deal

After watching the newest Gringo trailer, I only have one question: what kind of dirt does the casting director have on David Oyelowo and Charlize Theron? I’m joking, but once you see the antics on display in this corporate drug “comedy,” you might understand that line of thinking. How did such a solid cast – […]

‘Gringo’ Trailer: David Oyelowo and Charlize Theron Blaze a Trail Across Mexico

Titling your movie after a slur is always a gamble, but casting award-winning actors in your marijuana black comedy may be even more so.

Now, the screenwriter behind The Martian is getting ready for his sophomore effort behind the camera: Bad Times at the El Royale, which is a great, distinctive title. For his next movie, he’ll reunite with one of his stars from his debut film, Chris Hemsworth, who will star […]

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Star Storm Reid Joins David Oyelowo in Thriller ‘Only You’

A Wrinkle in Time hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but young star Storm Reid is already booking exciting new projects. Having shouldered an anticipated Disney sci-fi blockbuster that boasts a slate of Oscar-nominated stars and directors, Reid’s next choice is understandably a little more low-key. Storm Reid has joined David Oyelowo in the Blumhouse Productions time […]
