‘The Finest Hours’ Review: Solid Historical Drama Amidst Stormy Seas

For decades, there’s been a clear delineation of roles in the Affleck clan: Ben’s the leading man, Casey’s the character actor. Ben has the perfect chin and lustrous hair, not to mention the major height advantage. (He’s almost half a foot taller than Casey, according to IMDb.) Even when Casey Affleck takes a central role in a film, it’s almost always in material that explores the unlikelihood of a guy like him becoming a hero (think The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford or Gone Baby Gone). But that’s not the case with the new historical adventure The Finest Hours. There’s nothing quirky or unconventional about Affleck’s charisma here. Even with a more traditional leading man co-anchoring the story and serving as its de facto protagonist, Affleck commands the screen with quiet, steely resolve and intense eyes. At 40 years old, he’s blossomed into a full-fledged movie star.

Until then, WB has debuted the official logo for Diana’s upcoming film, and it looks very…metal. Like, literally metal, but also maybe sort of figuratively metal?

Although we’ve already seen the first official trailer for Star Trek Beyond, there’s still plenty we don’t know about the upcoming sequel, directed by Justin Lin and co-written by star Simon Pegg. We know Idris Elba is the villain, that Kingsman’s Sofia Boutella plays an awesome-looking alien, and…that’s about it. A new set video with the cast sheds a little more light on what we can expect from Beyond, including some new weapons and uniforms and one very intriguing secret regarding John Cho’s Sulu.

Not that we exactly needed someone to confirm the World War I setting of Wonder Woman, given the leaked set photos and the persistent rumors that the film divides its time between WWI-era and modern-day, but just in case you wanted something more official, Chris Pine has confirmed the movie's time period and — as a bonus — is teasing a possible cameo from iconic Wonder Woman TV star Lynda Carter.

Chris Pine has been confirmed in the role of Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince in the upcoming Wonder Woman solo movie, but the set photo that appeared over the weekend featured Pine in period attire, leading to a few raised eyebrows. Rumors have consistently suggested that at least some of Wonder Woman takes place during World War I, but surely Pine isn’t appearing in only part of the film, right?
