Shia LeBeouf is taking to the court as legendary tennis player John McEnroe in the first teaser trailer for Borg/McEnroe. LaBeouf has experienced his share of highs and lows during his nearly 20-year career, from his success as Louis Stevens on the Disney Channel hit Even Stevens, to playing Sam Witwicky in the first three Transformers movies and the son of Harrison Ford’s iconic explorer in Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. Unfortunately, LaBeouf’s off-screen troubles have marred his life on- and off-screen in the past few years, and his only high-profile role in feature films came in 2014 opposite Brad Pitt in the World War II drama Fury.
Now it appears that LaBeouf is looking to literally get back into the swing of things with his next role as one half of professional tennis’ greatest rivalries in Borg/McEnroe; and fans are finally getting their first look at the actor as the sports great.

That the fanbase’s response is pretty harmonious is surprising given how, over the past weeks, there’s been a lot of internet ink spent dissecting the original run of Twin Peaks and prequel movie Fire Walk With Me. In ...

Warning: SPOILERS ahead for Twin Peaks season 3
Twin Peaks has returned to our screens, perhaps even more weird and wonderful than ever. Creator and director David Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have had twenty-five years to perfect their craft, and with Lynch directing every episode, his influence is very keenly felt. Long, intense silences, trippy, surrealist scenes and plenty of backwards talk pushes an audience to the limits of their comfort, but stick with Twin Peaks and you will be richly rewarded.
