Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig steal the show in ‘Logan Lucky’ trailer

LOGAN LUCKY | Official HD Trailer
Any new movie from Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is worth keeping an eye on, but the first trailer for his upcoming film Logan Lucky indicates it could be something particularly special.

A heist comedy with an all-star cast that includes Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Daniel Craig (Skyfall), Logan Lucky is the three-time Oscar nominee’s first directorial project since 2013’s Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra. The film follows a pair of dimwitted brothers (played by Tatum and Driver) who attempt to pull off a massive robbery at the Charlotte Motor Speedway with some help from a bank robber (Craig) they break out of prison.

As with many of Soderbergh’s films, Logan Lucky has an impressive supporting cast of familiar faces, including Seth MacFarlane (A Million Ways to Die in the West), Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road), Katie Holmes (Batman Begins), Katherine Waterston (Alien: Covenant), and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank also stars as a law-enforcement agent on the brothers’ case.

The film is the first screenwriting credit for Rebecca Blunt, and tells the story of a pair of unlucky brothers who hope to break their lifelong streak of misfortune by pulling off a heist at the Coca-Cola 600 race at North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway during Memorial Day weekend. Soderbergh, who won an Oscar for directing 2000’s Traffic and was nominated two other times for Erin Brockovich that same year and in 1990 for penning the screenplay for Sex, Lies, and Videotape, came out of a highly publicized retirement from directing to get behind the camera for Logan Lucky.

Logan Lucky will also be the first credited role for Craig since his back-to-back James Bond portrayals in 2012’s Skyfall and 2015’s Spectre. The film is scheduled to hit theaters August 18.

All the Saw movies, ranked from worst to best
Billy the Puppet from the Saw franchise.

This weekend, Saw X is out in theaters and the latest sequel is keeping the legacy of Jigsaw alive. Or we could call it a "midquel" if you prefer, because the film's story is set between Saw and Saw II. Since the first movie's debut in 2004, Saw has proven to be one of the most resilient and best franchises in horror alongside The Conjuring and Insidious. Not even killing off the main character has prevented Lionsgate from revisiting Jigsaw and his apprentices again and again. The movies have even made Jigsaw's puppet, Billy (pictured above), into one of the franchise's most iconic creations.

Now that Saw X has arrived, this is the perfect opportunity to rank all 10 of the movies in the Saw franchise. There's definitely a dramatic drop in quality from the worst film to the very best. But it's also worth saying that Saw X offers some promising signs that the filmmakers may have finally recognized why the franchise was floundering and come up with some ideas as to how it might continue beyond its 20th anniversary next year.

The 10 most popular shows on Max right now
A promotional image from HBO's Savior Complex.

The latest update of the 10 most popular shows on Max has arrived, and for the third week in a row, the original animated series Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake is No. 1 on the list, thanks in large part to a fresh episode of the show. However, this week marks the first time that three of the AMC+ shows on loan to Max have dropped out of the top 10. So Killing Eve, Interview with the Vampire, and Gangs of London are out, while TLC reality shows like Welcome to Plathville and Sister Wives are in. That really puts the Discovery in Warner Bros. Discovery.

This week's biggest addition is the HBO documentary Savior Complex, which debuted at No. 3. Meanwhile, the racy British dating show Naked Attraction remains near the top spot at No. 2. Never say that sex doesn't sell, because it clearly does. As of September 29, these are the 10 most popular shows on Max right now.
