Nicolas Cage is back yet again with his third VOD classic of 2016 – Dog Eat Dog, a crime drama also featuring his one-time rival for Green Goblin, Willem Dafoe.
Miles Teller returns from the dregs of Marvel-less Fantastic Four adaptations to prove he has a decent track record with dramatic fare as he reunites with Aaron Eckhart (Rabbit Hole) for boxing biopic Bleed For This.
Hailee Steinfeld re-emerges from her own VOD career by emulating Juno and Olive (Easy A) in a coming-of-age dramedy The Edge of Seventeen that features a stellar sarcastic turn by Woody Harrelson as her pseudo mentor.
James Franco attempts to legitimize Hulu’s original fare by adapting Stephen King’s very interesting what-if alternate history 11-22-63, where he travels back in time and takes his sweet time deciding whether or not to save John F Kennedy from assassination.
All this and several older films highlighting the careers of Dustin Hoffman (Straight Time) and James Caan (Hide in Plain Sight, Slither) in their 1970’s primes.
