The script is written by Rogen together with his comedy partner Evan Goldberg, and Kyle Hunter. Dreamworks alumni Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon

Independence Day: Resurgence Trailer

Independence-Day-Resurgence

The sequel to this film is coming. It builds on the struggle for survival story as profoundly as ever, giving us a full fledged scientific action drama, packed in about two hours of pure fun. So, where and how did the events

‘The Giver’ Review

Jeff Bridges as 'The Giver', and Brenton Thwaites as 'Jonas'

Dystopia themed works have come to rival the wizarding world of Harry Potter, and the vampiric machinations of Stephanie Meyers as the current trend in young adult literature and films.
