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.
