A brand new trailer for the upcoming Natalie Portman western Jane Got Gun has just hit the web. Jane Got a Gun centers on Jane Hammond (played by Natalie Portman), who has built a new life with her husband, Ham, after being tormented by the ultra-violent Bishop Boys outlaw gang. She finds herself in the gang’s cross-hairs once again when Ham stumbles home riddled with bullets after dueling with the Boys and their relentless mastermind Colin (played by Ewan McGregor). With the vengeful crew hot on Ham’s trail, Jane has nowhere to turn but to her former fiancé Dan Frost (played by Joel Edgerton) for help in defending her family against certain destruction.
Ever since Daredevil first aired on Nexflix, many fans have wondered if we’ll see him, along with the other Marvel heroes on Netflix, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Infinity War films come to screen. Some say yes, other say no. Now, one of the Infinity War directors, Anthony Russo, makes it sound like we shouldn’t hold our breath. He said the following: “It’s complicated. When we start to serialize the telling of stories it’s difficult. You have to have a lot of control and focus on the course of history. The films are controlled by a group led by Kevin Feige, so they function as a unit. Other products, even if they are from Marvel, are controlled by others. Then there is the possibility of a crossover, but it’s more complicated. It is a smaller scale version of the problem that exists when remembering that Fox holds the rights to some of Marvel’s most popular characters, as does Sony and others.”

In the Heart of the Sea. In 1820, crewmen aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write “Moby-Dick.”MAIL BAG
