Shot Caller doesn’t hit the screens until August 18th, but was released on DirecTV on July 20th. Ric Roman Waugh’s latest film was actually completed in 2015, but the release was postponed to 2017 due to Relativity Media filing for bankruptcy in July 2015. Thankfully, everyone gets a chance to see Nikol Coster-Waldau turn from family man to ruthless gang leader this August.

Pilgrimage recently released in the UK July 3rd, available in select theaters, as well as DVD/Blu-Ray and digital HD. For us US viewers, we will have to wait until August 11th to get our turn to view the Irish film. Admittedly, I streamed this movie online, because I absolutely did not want to wait. Don’t worry though, I fully plan on purchasing Pilgrimage once it becomes available in the Google Play Store in August.

2016 gave us one of Ben Affleck’s best performance in a movie. No, I’m not talking about Batman vs Superman. Starring as Christian Wolff, Affleck was nothing short of superb in 2016’s The Accountant. The action movie revolves around a literal accountant, who keeps less than reputable people as clients and also happens to have a high-functioning form of autism.
We already know Ben Affleck will return for the sequel to the action-packed film. The real question is, will Jon Bernthal? If you haven’t seen The Accountant, there are spoilers up ahead. If you’ve read a few of my articles, you know I’m a big Bernthal fan. And he’s really the reason why I saw this great movie; which I’m glad about, as it’s probably one of the best movies of 2016 and gets so little recognition.

Sweet Virginia was just one of two Jon Bernthal films to premiere at the Tribeca Film festival. Unlike Pilgrimage, Bernthal’s suspense thriller had not yet been picked up by a major film studio. Which, was terrible news considering those who went to the film festival gave the movie rave reviews. Who doesn’t want to see more Jon Bernthal on their screens?

If you loved Get Out (how could you not?), you’ll want to watch some of Daniel Kaluuya’s past work. The twenty-seven English actor is just starting his career, but he’s been involved in some big named projects already. He’s been in the well-known series Skins and Black Mirror and I can imagine that Get Out is going to catapult him into being a household name; especially since he also will be in the highly anticipated upcoming Black Panther movie.
My introduction to Kaluuya was in the 2015 film Sicario. The drama stars Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt, and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent who gets recruited to join the CIA on a mission to take down a well-known drug cartel leader. Kaluuya plays her partner/only friend/mother figure.

The Walking Dead and The Punisher star Jon Bernthal is known for playing badass characters. From Shane Walsh, to Frank Castle and his roles in other films such as Fury and The Accountant, Bernthal usually is the guy with the less than reputable morals. Yesterday, the trailer for his latest project Pilgrimage dropped and Bernthal has gone Medieval.

If you’ve been on Twitter or Instagram recently, you’ve probably seen a Punisher poster that was so bad-ass it had to be real. The Punisher costars Ben Barnes and Deborah Ann Woll even promoted the bullet-riddled poster, which led many to speculate it was legitimate.
As awesome as that poster is, it’s in fact, fan-made. Giuseppe Spinelli is a digital artist from Italy and is the genius behind this awesome gift. Regardless if it’s real or not, it’s more than appropriate for Frank Castle and definitely hyped up the fan-base. We aren’t sure when The Punisher will exactly be released on Netflix, but at least we know it’s going to premiere in 2017.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s that awesome poster I keep talking about. Make sure to check out Giuseppe Spinelli’s Twitter page. Hopefully, Marvel/The Punisher sees because it’s definitely the perfect artwork for the show.
