Josh Brolin, Jody Hill, and Danny McBride talk hunting and The Legacy Of A Whitetail Deer Hunter

Jody Hill and Danny McBride have a handful of hilarious collaborations under their belts. First came the off-kilter martial arts movie The Foot Fist Way, which was followed up with a pair of HBO comedies—Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals. Now the pair has teamed up with Josh Brolin for the Netflix comedy, The…

Lifelong friends Danny McBride and Jody Hill put their relationship to the test 

Longtime friends and collaborators Danny McBride and Jody Hill have become one of Hollywood’s most reliably hilarious comedy duos. Having met at the North Carolina School Of The Arts, they first collaborated on the off-kilter martial arts movie The Foot Fist Way, and followed that up with a pair of HBO comedies—…

Emily Blunt isn’t all that’s missing from the needless Sicario sequel Day Of The Soldado

Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 thriller Sicario opens with the discovery of a house of horrors, an apt metaphor for the journey of its heroine, adept FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), and for the film’s view of the Mexican drug cartels as a rhetorical evil. A raid on an Arizona tract home uncovers plastic-wrapped bodies in…

On The Late Show, charming goofball Josh Brolin gives Trump's tweets the Thanos treatment

With his granite face and signature drill sergeant haircut, Josh Brolin has the market cornered at this point in his career (he’s 50, somehow) on grim-voiced, badass action types. Stephen Colbert noted that calling this “the summer of Brolin” wouldn’t be out of line, considering the actor’s villainous, anti-heroic,…

Josh Brolin and Ryan Reynolds are really good at insulting each other

There’s a profane, adolescent energy to the Deadpool franchise, and the forthcoming sequel’s bizarre marketing campaign reflects that juvenile unpredictability. Over the past few weeks, star Ryan Reynolds has danced with Celine Dion, “spoiled” his own movie, and dressed up like a unicorn on South Korean TV, and now…

Between Infinity War and Deadpool 2, Josh Brolin is grateful to be in everything this summer

Josh Brolin is gearing up to have a huge summer. First up, after years of anticipation, he’s finally front and center in Avengers: Infinity War, as the Mad Titan Thanos. A couple weeks after that, he’s starring as fan-favorite Cable in the highly anticipated Deadpool sequel. Most people would stop there, but Brolin…

Final Deadpool 2 trailer takes shots at Cable, Domino, the DCEU, basically everyone

As is increasingly the case, we won’t have to wait long between superhero movies—just three weeks after Avengers: Infinity War fires its opening salvo, Deadpool 2 is poised to hit theaters like Colossus (Stefan Kapicic). Or Cable (Josh Brolin). Or Bedlam (Terry Crews), though, if he sticks to his comic-book origins,…

Deadpool 2 reshoots give the fans what they want, apparently: More Domino and Cable

As is becoming increasingly common in our modern blockbuster era, superhero comedy Deadpool 2 got sent back for reshoots earlier this year. Although the decision to reshoot sometimes gets seen as a last-ditch effort to “save” a film that tested poorly, more often than not, these days, it’s all about specifically…

Josh Brolin suggests Thanos' genocide fetish is just a product of a lousy upbringing

It’s a generally understood truism of storytelling that every villain is a hero of their own tale. Marvel’s films have certainly benefited from this lesson; characters like The Avengers’ Loki and Black Panther’s Killmonger have both thrived mightily from the sympathy with which their characters’ agendas are treated in…

So, that was definitely the X-Force in the Deadpool 2 trailer, right?

The new Deadpool 2 trailer has given fans plenty to talk about. There’s the unveiling of Josh Brolin as the metal-armed, gun-toting Cable, Deadpool’s not-so-subtle jab at Henry Cavill’s poorly edited mustache, and 16-year-old Julian Dennison flipping a double birdie. But the real centerpiece is the shot above, which…

Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro are at war with everyone in the Sicario 2: Soldado trailer

The trailer for Sicario 2: Soldado, featuring Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro reprising their roles as morally compromised DEA agent Matt Graver and his shadowy associate Alejandro Gillick, has arrived. The new film—which sees Italian TV director Stefano Sollima taking over for Denis Villeneuve—has been described by…

Josh Brolin and a bunch of manly men fight fire in the old-fashioned Only The Brave

As wildfires ravage the state of California, moviegoers may not be especially excited to sit down and watch a 130-minute reminder of how dangerous and frightening it can be to see fires tear across the landscape. But in a way, it’s surprisingly easy not to think about current events during Only The Brave, and not…

James Cameron called Josh Brolin “names” for turning down the Avatar sequels

Hollywood is a tough place, full of backstabbing, double-dealing, pile-climbing, and all the other symptoms of a world full of A-listers trying to push everybody else down into the Bs. Sometimes though, people get really nasty, as demonstrated in a new Esquire profile on Josh Brolin, in which he reveals that James…
