It’s been nearly five years since Keanu Reeves has been spotted in a studio film, but this year will bring him back with the long-delayed 47 Ronin. In the meantime he’s been hard at work crafting his directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi, entirely shot in China with living legend Yuen Woo-Ping and actors Tiger Hu Chen (Kung Fu Hero), Karen Mok (Shaolin Soccer, The Law of Attraction), Iko Uwais (The Raid, The Raid 2), alongside the film’s helmer.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
