Kevin Hart is mistaken for a killer in The Man From Toronto

Have you ever booked a stay at an Airbnb only to find that it’s not what you expected? In The Man From Toronto, that’s what happens to Kevin Hart’s Teddy. But instead of dirty sheets and foul smells coming from the fridge, Teddy’s problems are a little more pressing. Because he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, some very bad people believe that Teddy is the infamous enforcer/assassin known as The Man From Toronto. And if Teddy wants to keep breathing, then he had better make sure that the criminals believe his deception.

Netflix has released the first trailer for The Man From Toronto, which introduces both Teddy and the guy he is subbing in for: Randy (Woody Harrelson). As you might expect, Randy is less than pleased that someone has been trading upon his name and reputation. Unfortunately for Teddy, Randy doesn’t see any other option than to make sure that his clients keep thinking that Teddy is the man they hired.

If the trailer is any indication, it looks like the story will become an odd buddy comedy between the pair. Teddy clearly seems to feel some connection to Randy, which doesn’t appear to be shared. But that’s part of the fun because they’re in this together now.

Kaley Cuoco also stars in the film as Maggie, with Jasmine Mathews as Ruth, Pierson Fodé as the “Man from Miami,” and Tomohisa Yamashita as the “Man from Tokyo.” Ellen Barkin, Lela Loren, and Kate Drummond will fill out the rest of the supporting cast.

Patrick Hughes directed The Man From Toronto from a screenplay by Robbie Fox and Chris Bremner, which was adapted from a story by Fox and Jason Blumenthal. It will premiere on Netflix on June 24.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. review
Yes it's a spy flick, but The Man From U.N.C.L.E. has this summer's best romance
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Everyone has their trigger words. "Fiancé" is mine.
Don't get me wrong; I love my wife, and I love being married, but we did not enjoy being engaged. We are not patient people, and engagement is all about patience — a waiting game, a high-stress period between one phase and the next, filled with frustrating politics, unnecessary bickering, and — worst of all — the label of "fiancé," among the most pretentious words in the world. Say that word around my wife and I, and witness the twitch of despair as we return to the dark time.

Dead Ringers trailer has twice the Rachel Weisz
dead ringers trailer rachel weisz prime video

Rachel Weisz (Black Widow) is in double the trouble as the Oscar winner plays twins in Prime Video's upcoming series Dead Ringers, which released its official trailer on Wednesday morning. The psychological thriller is a gender-flipped adaption of David Cronenberg's 1988 film of the same name starring Jeremy Irons (House of Gucci).

Weisz plays Elliot and Beverly Mantle, twin gynecologists looking to push the limits of medical ethics and revolutionize women's health care. As one of the twins says in the trailer, they do work that is "groundbreaking, but hopeful." The twins are disturbingly codependent, as the women share everything from drugs to lovers and ideals. Set to the Soft Cell's Tainted Love, the trailer shows how the twins seek to change how women give birth, even if it involves radical measures.
