HBO Max(NOTE LANGUAGE) HBO Max has released a new trailer to its upcoming spin-off of The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker, and in it, John Cena's over-the-top anti-hero shows off a vulnerable side.  Not only is Cena's titular character apparently having second thoughts about his peace-through-violence mantra, hesitating when ordered to fire on innocent people so that he can kill a target, but he's also having issues with his dad.  Terminator 2 and Sons of Anarchy veteran Robert Patrick plays his father, and he's tough to impress. When Cena's character mentions that he survived being shot -- and had a building fall on top of him, referring to the close of The Suicide Squad -- Patrick's character replies, "You let somebody shoot you?!" Despite his reservations, however, Peacemaker isn't afraid of the action: In one scene   ... Read More

Amazon Studios/Shane MahoodUndeniably, Tom Cruise is a big star. However, fans of author's Lee Child's Jack Reacher groused when Cruise, at 5' 7", played the character, who's described in the books as well over six feet tall and massively built.  However, the new trailer for Amazon Prime's upcoming Reacher series proves this time, they got a star who is literally bigger than Cruise: Alan Ritchson. The footage shows that Reacher's trademark pre-beatdown swagger sounds much more convincing coming from the hulking 6' 2" Titans actor than it did the Top Gun star.  According to Amazon, the new series will center on Child's first Reacher book, Killing Floor, and will see the retired military investigator finding himself in a small town, accused of murder.  "While he   ...
