Ben Stiller’s latest role is a middle-aged guy reflecting on the missed opportunities and regrets of his youth, mourning the life he could’ve had. No, this isn’t When We’re Young, the Noah Baumbach film where Stiller tapped into nostalgia and new-age hipster-dom with ayahuasca trips alongside Adam Driver. It’s Brad’s Status, the latest from School of Rock, The Good Girl, and Orange Country writer (not to mention one of the scribes behind The Emoji Movie) Mike White.
When you hear the name Sam Raimi, you think of one of two things: 'Evil Dead' or 'Spider-Man.'

Always keep 'em guessing.
