Cast: Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, Wyatt Russell
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 116 Minutes

Written and directed by Richard Linklater (Before Midnight, Boyhood), Everybody Wants Some!! is a spiritual sequel to the filmmaker’s seminal 1993 film, Dazed and Confused.

Set in 1980, the movie follows the lives of college baseball players on the last weekend before Fall semester begins. Blake Jenner (Glee) stars as 18-year-old Jake, a freshman pitcher who arrives at Texas Southern University blasting The Knack’s “My Sharona.” His home for the next four years is the run-down, off-campus baseball house; a place for winners. Upon arriving, he is immediately hazed by McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin), the team’s mustachioed heavy hitter who hates pitchers (especially lefties like Jake).

Air Date: Thursday, November 5th, 2015, 8pm

Last week on Heroes Reborn, we went back to that fateful day, the entire series is based upon, June 13th, 2014, via Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oko) transport. Hiro brings Noah (Jack Coleman) to find out what happened to Claire. And he does. She died in childbirth, birthing twins. Hiro went to try to stop the bomb strapped to the Harris (Clé Bennett) clones. He popped back and forth through time trying to find a scenario that was not horrible if the bomb did not go off, and he couldn’t. So he had to let the bombs detonate. Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose) was at the hospital and told Noah and Hiro of the babies role in saving mankind. Hiro took her and the babies to 1999, so they’d be ready to save the day in 2015. June 13th, 2014 also caught the Collins family, hopeful and happy. So sad.

‘Jem and The Holograms’ Trailer #2: “Showtime Synergy”

Jem and The Holograms header

Well, the first trailer for Jem and the Holograms failed to impress; in fact it got a wave of international negative reaction. The complete opposite of what Universal was looking for in its modern-day reimagining of the ’80s cartoon of the same name. The film will center on a young girl nicknamed Jem (Aubery Peeples) whose amateur music video was uploaded on YouTube and viewed over a million times, turning her and her band (which also happens to be her sisters) into an internet sensation. Having signed on to a major record labor the group goes on tour, but a greedy studio head wants to take Jem on a solo career, which would rip the family apart.

It’s the same old sing-song story about family sticking together kind of film we have seen in the past. But would a pet robot named Synergy who displays holograms of family memories to remind our lead character about the importance of family get you interested in the film? Well if it does, then you might want to check out what director Jon M. Chu had in store for Synergy below.
