Halle Berry is pulling no punches when it comes to Bruised. Not only will the actress star as the lead of the MMA story, but the upcoming sports drama will mark her directorial debut. The movie had its grand premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last year — finally, we get to see Berry in action. She’ll star as a washed-up MMA fighter who returns to the ring for one final, major fight against a star player. But while she’s prepping for the big battle, a son she gave up for adoption years ago shows up at her doorstep.

Netflix’s Selling Sunset is back for another luxurious and drama-packed season of reality TV about a group of real estate brokers who thrive at selling the sunny lifestyle to affluent buyers in Los Angeles. The real entertainment factor of the show, however, lies in the dramatic, interpersonal relationships between the brokers themselves. In Season 4, that could not be more true. Big deals will be closed both on the housing market and in The Oppenheim Group members’ personal lives through weddings, career decisions and, of course, the main story being Chrishell Stause’s very public divorce from This Is Us star Justin Hartley.

'Red Notice'

RED NOTICE NETFLIX REVIEW

What happens when you put hilarious action stars Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Gal Gadot together in one movie? You get Red Notice, the heart-pounding and hilarious action-drama. In this film, a disgraced FBI profiler (Johnson) enlists the help of the second-best art thief in the world (Reynolds) to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted thief (Gadot). With Johnson’s action-man mastery, Reynolds’ sarcastic quips and Gadot’s femme-fatale energy combined, Red Notice is best described as “chaotic-good” on the alignment chart.
