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.
The first teaser has been released for Jason Bourne. Yes, that's the title so audiences apparently don't go in thinking Jeremy Renner is starring in it. Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass return as star and director and this time Bourne appears to be bored with his new job as a cage fighter so he decides to resurface and cause more havoc. Julia Stiles returns and new blood includes Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones. Jason Bourne opens July 29.
Miles Ahead Trailer
Sony Pictures Classics has released the first trailer for Miles Ahead. Directed and starring Don Cheadle as Miles Davis, the film centers around a couple of days in Davis' life as a music reporter, Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor), follows Davis as he attempts to recover a stolen tape of the musician's latest compositions. We've seen a recent trend in biopics where filmmakers focus on a specific time period rather than a life story and it's worked very well. Selma and Steve Jobs are two great examples. Here Cheadle appears to be following a similar pattern and I like the rawness and humor of this trailer. This is Cheadle's directorial debut and he appears to have made a passion project. Miles Ahead opens April 1.
Green Room Trailer
A24 has released a red-band trailer for Green Room. Directed by Jeremy Saulnier who made the underrated gem Blue Ruin, Green Room follows a punk rock band playing at a dive bar. After finishing their set to make some quick cash, they attempt to leave but witness something they shouldn't have leading them to barricade themselves inside the green room with lots and lots of racist psychos right outside. This looks like a conventional slasher movie, but the film scored rave reviews at last year's festivals and Saulnier has a fresh perspective on the thriller genre after Blue Ruin. Green Room opens April 29.
