The Independent, a new political journalism thriller, arrives on Peacock days before Americans go to the polls for the midterm election. The real October surprise? Peacock’s announcement of this thriller! There are so many options this week and that’s not an understatement. If you have election anxiety right now, the film probably is not the best option. Otherwise, I do recommend watching. Hey, it’s got Jodie Turner-Smith and Brian Cox in leading roles. You cannot…"The Independent: A Political Journalism Thriller"

During a roundtable interview in Toronto for Prisoner’s Daughter, Brian Cox discussed how he tackles projects during the Succession hiatus. Cox stars in the film alongside Kate Beckinsale. The actor plays an aging prisoner who is dying of cancer and needs to convince his estranged daughter to let him move in with her family. Whichever distributor acquires the film has an award-worthy performance from the Succession star. I had hoped to ask more than one…"Brian Cox On Choosing Projects During The Hiatus"
A dying father seeks a second chance with his daughter in the newest film from director Catherine Hardwicke, Prisoner’s Daughter.

The main problem with the film’s opening quote is that Perot didn’t run for president in 1988. This is something that should have been fixed for the home video release. Instead, it is still there ten years later! Cam…"The Campaign: Election Satire Brings The Laughs"
When Succession actor Brian Cox accepted the Drama Series Ensemble win at the SAG Awards, he spoke about both Ukraine and Russia.

It’s truly,…"Brian Cox: Succession Star Talks Ukraine and Russia"
X2: X-Men United is the comic book adaptation that set the benchmark for all comic book films until The Dark Knight came calling five years later. After Alkali Lake was teased at the end of X-Men, the setting plays a larger focus in the sequel. It’s the base for Col. William Stryker (Brian Cox), who happens to take on a more villainous role than Magneto (Ian McKelllan). Stryker is no fan of mutants and lets…"X2: X-Men United – The Road to Dark Phoenix"
The best thing that one can say about the new HBO drama, Succession, is that it is the dramatic version of Arrested Development. After that, it gets tricky. The series follows around the family of Logan Roy (Brian Cox), the CEO of Waystar Royco. As the series starts, it’s assumed that Logan Roy would be retiring from the company. After all, he’s 80 years old and can’t keep doing the job forever. He’s married to his…"Succession: The Dramatic Arrested Development"
