Tina Fey is tougher than she looks!
In the newly released trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Fey plays Kim Barker, an American reporter who travels to Afghanistan and Pakistan as a war journalist. She’s looking for a total change of pace from her monotonous life in the States, and as she quickly finds out, she’s in for that and much, much more.
Put up with other foreign reporters in what’s referred to as “the funhouse,” Barker (Fey) is quickly embraced by Margot Robbie’s character, Tanya Vanderpoel. “It’s so nice to have another woman in the house,” says Vanderpoel, pulling her in for a hug.
She then proceeds to size up her new female friend, telling Barker, “In Afghanistan, you’re a serious piece of ass…In New York, you’re like 6-7? Here, you’re a 9, borderline 10.”
“What are you here?” asks Barker. “Like a 15?”
“Yeah,” Vanderpoel admits.
Barker is on assignment for work, though, not just making friends, and before long she’s astonished to find enemy forces mean serious business. “These a–holes tried to shot us,” she screams.
But she allies with Vanderpoel, who wants to “go big or go home” in their quest for a story. They encounter plenty of interesting characters along the way and nearly get killed in the process.
This war comedy also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Christopher Abbott, Martin Freeman and Alfred Molina. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot hits theaters March 4, 2016.
While not busy tattooing each other and taking care of pet rats, the Suicide Squad stars try to lead relatively normal lives, as evidenced by a recent CTV News video.
Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney, who were in Toronto for filming on the upcoming DC Comics adaptation, took time to visit 5-year-old Na’ama Uzan’s lemonade stand, which she started in 2014 to help support her brother Nadav. Nadav has been diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome, which, among other medical issues, causes him to have difficulty walking, speaking, and endure seizures.
According to CTV News, Na’ama has raised over $64,000 for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics.
Robbie and Courtney did not show up in costume or character, thankfully saving Na’ama from having to question why Robbie would be carrying a baseball bat or wearing a choker that says “PUDDIN” or why Courtney would need such an oversized coat.
Watch the video below to see the stars prove you don’t need to be a villainous antihero with your life under mortal threat to do something good for the community.
Suicide Squad, which features director David Ayer alongside cast members Karen Fukuhara, Adam Beach, Cara Delevingne, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Margot Robbie and Will Smith. There’s no Q&A, but you do get to see the Skwad assembled and hear Ayer say “shit” numerous times…
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th 2016 and sees David Ayer (Fury) directing a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis (The Help) as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World) as Killer Croc, Ray Olubowale (Resident Evil: Afterlife) as King Shark, Jay Hernandez (Hostel) as El Diablo, Adam Beach (Flags Of Our Fathers) as Slipknot, Jim Parrack (Fury) as Johnny Frost, Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project) as Hugo Strange, newcomer Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Common (Selma) and Scott Eastwood (The Longest Ride) in as-yet-unconfirmed roles.
Imagine Fox’s The Last Man on Earth, but with more danger—hello, radioactive streams—and more drama. That’s what you get with Z for Zachariah, an upcoming film starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, and Chris Pine.
The film is based on Robert C. O’Brien’s 1974 novel of the same name, and follows a female survivor of the apocalypse whose life is made even more complicated when two men arrive at her remote valley farm. Judging from the trailer, Robbie and Ejiofor’s characters get off to a romantic start—but once Pine’s character shows up, the guns (literally) come out. Watch the trailer below:
Will Smith, Margot Robbie and the rest of their crew exit a rolled over truck with Smoke everywhere and the army surrounding them on the set of “Suicide Squad” in Toronto, Canada. Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Scott Eastwood, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach and Karen Fukuhara were all in costume in the scene.
Here is another on set video I found, hope to get photos when I can.
