A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist "Calamity" Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), now coaching the opposition. But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability - both on and off the campaign trail - Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers.
Dramatic, rapid-fire and laced with satire, Our Brand Is Crisis reveals the cynical machinations and private battles of world-class political consultants for whom nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters. The drama also stars Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Joaquim de Almeida (Fast Five), Ann Dowd (Side Effects, HBO's The Leftovers), Scoot McNairy (Gone Girl, Argo) and Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks).Read More

Worldview Entertainment has released the first photo of Al Pacino in the upcoming Manglehorn, directed by David Gordon Green. The actor portrays AJ Manglehorn, a seemingly-normal man in a small town who is hiding from his mysterious past as a criminal, pondering the choice he made to give up the love of his life for a big score.

Take a look at the first image from this indie drama, which co-stars Holly Hunter, Chris Messina and filmmaker Harmony Korine, and you can also take a look at the official synopsis below.
AJ Manglehorn is an aging, ordinary guy in a small town. He nurses his sick cat, squeezes out a conversation with the local bank teller every Friday, and eats at the same place every day. But there is more to Manglehorn than meets the eye: he's an ex-con who, 40 years ago, gave up the woman of his dreams for a big 'job'. He now obsesses daily over the choices he made. After a dramatic effort to start over, Manglehorn faces a terrifying moment and is unmasked as a guy with a very, very dark past.Read More
