“Witness the hostage situation that shocked the world.”
After a successful awards run last year, Ethan Hawk returns in a film based on 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis that occurred at the Norrmalmstorg square in Stockholm, Sweden.
Based on the title and plot, many may recall the phrase “Stockholm syndrome,””the psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with his or her captor.” The film tells the story that inspired the term.
The film is from Canadian writer/director Robert Budreau, who collaborated with Hawke in the highly underrated 2015 musical drama “Born to Be Blue,” where the actor played the role of jazz musician Chet Baker.
Hawk recently appeared in the critically acclaimed Paul Schraeder directed drama “First Reformed,” which gave the actor multiple best actor recognition last year and some of the best acclaim in his career.
“Stockholm” premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and co-stars Noomi Rapace and Mark Strong. The film is set for release on April 12, 2019.
MPI Media Group has officially released the trailer and announced the release date for it the highly anticipated MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS, a comprehensive celebration of the legendary Gothic daytime series Dark Shadows and its visionary creator, Dan Curtis.

The feature documentary, which was shot in New York, LA and London, includes interviews with key actors and filmmakers involved in the undyingly popular story of vampire Barnabas Collins and all the eerie goings-on at the gloomy Maine mansion Collinwood. The documentary was directed by David Gregory(Lost Soul, Godfathers of Mondo)and is set to be released this spring.
Narrated by Ian McShane (Deadwood), MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS offers insights from Curtis himself in addition to Oscar-winning writer-producer Alan Ball (True Blood), screenwriter William F. Nolan (Trilogy of Terror), author Herman Wouk (The Winds Of War), veteran actors Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday)and Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire), Dark Shadows stars Jonathan Frid, David Selby, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, John Karlen, Nancy Barrett, Jerry Lacy, Roger Davis, Marie Wallace, Chris Pennock and James Storm, plus other colleagues and family members.
In 1966, a phenomenon was launched when Dark Shadows debuted on ABC-TV as a daily Gothic suspense series. Airing in the late afternoon, the show attracted a massive youth audience as it shifted to the supernatural with the introduction of vulnerable vampire Barnabas Collins. Witches, ghosts and scary story lines turned Dark Shadows into a TV classic that led to motion pictures, remakes, reunions and legions of devoted fans who have kept the legend alive for five decades.
The feature-length documentary MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS reveals the fascinating history, far-reaching impact and lasting appeal of Dark Shadows with a compelling blend of rare footage and behind-the-scenes stories while also exploring the dramatic talents of creator-producer-director Dan Curtis. Known as the “King of TV Horror,” the Emmy-winning filmmaker followed Dark Shadows with other iconic genre favorites including The Night Stalker, Trilogy of Terror and Burnt Offerings before earning accolades for the epic miniseries The Winds of War and War and Remembrance.

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for “Hobbs & Shaw”, a spin-off from The Fast and the Furious series which reunites Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s franchise characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw respectively.
The trailer is full of over-the-top action, some of which veering into superhero territory, with Hobbs and Shaw’s reluctant partnership resulting in comedic conflict while they chase the villain.
That self proclaimed bad guy here is Idris Elba’s Brixton, a criminal mastermind with destructive super human strength. “I’m dealing with the future of the planet. I’m the necessary shock to the system. I am human evolutionary change, bulletproof, superhuman,” says a menacing Brixton.
