The Gift (STX Entertainment)

Bryan Cranston is just the best. That’s not opinion. It’s fact. That’s why it’s great that he stars in the trailer for the biopic Trumbo. We also watch trailers for Bradley Cooper as a really dramatic chef in Burnt and Julia Roberts as an FBI agent who has to take the law into her own hands (cliche intended) in Secret in Their Eyes. Plus we review The Gift starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, and Joel Edgerton, and we talk about What We’re Watching.

Episode 164 – 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, The Night Before, The Last Witch Hunter; review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Michael Bay directing a movie about Benghazi? What could be bad about that? We watch the trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret of Soldiers of Benghazi, plus trailers for the holiday movie The Night Before with Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and action horror The Last Witch Hunter with Vin Diesel. All that plus a review of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and What We’re Watching.

One note: At one point Dustin makes the claim that Rupert Friend, star of the new Hitman: Agent 47, was the first actor to play Daario Naharis in Game of Thrones. He was wrong. That was Ed Skrein, who went on to star in the rebooted Transporter franchise. And you know what? No one cares.
