Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox lives the dream as he searches for his next hit record.

With the recent onslaught of haunted house/murderous family movies (I like them, but there’s way too many), The Final Girls will be an interesting, and welcome change.

Max and her friends find themselves in an alternate dimension where they became part of the movie and have to figure out how to survive, using their knowledge of horror movie tropes. Very Scream-esque!

This peak at Straight Outta Compton indicates that the film will do two things—humanize the West Coast rappers in the context of their rise to fame and the environment that created them, and focus on the indisputable cultural impact they had on America. Here, we see the members of N.W.A. being very hands-on with this project, and not to mention Paul Giamatti in a grey wig and some bare ass at the 1:30 mark. Truly, something for everyone! Straight Outta Compton, as if you didn’t know, is in theatres on August 14.

An American Ambassador is killed during an attack at a U.S. compound in Libya as a security team struggles to make sense out of the chaos.
