Passionate about movies, sports and writing, Ryan hails from Bend but lives in Springfield now. He earned his college degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and hopes to one day write a novel. He also enjoys sunsets and long walks on the beach.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Creed. Directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), the film follows Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), the son of world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who befriends Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) to help him train. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this trailer. Instead of being another Rocky sequel, it appears Stallone has officially handed the reigns over to a talented filmmaker and a rising star in Jordan. Creed opens November 25.
I Am Chris Farley Trailer
A trailer for I Am Chris Farley has hit the web. This documentary follows the rise and tragic fall of Chris Farley, one of the funniest and gifted SNL performers. Featuring interviews with former cast members and archival footage, the film celebrates Farley as well as shines a light on his struggle with drugs and alcohol that ultimately lead to his sudden death at 33. Tommy Boy is my all time favorite comedy so this is one I will definitely be checking out. I Am Chris Farley opens in limited release on July 31 and on VOD and DVD August 11.
Masterminds Trailer #2
A new trailer for Masterminds has hit the web. Zach Galifianakis stars as an armored truck driver who is lured into a heist scheme that makes him the scapegoat. Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) directs and it certainly has his eccentric comedic style. The cast which also features Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, is stellar and there's some funny moments in the trailer. Masterminds opens August 19.
