It was amazing night celebrating Amazon Prime Video’s gritty new Series, HUNTERS. The gripping Series produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) is set late ’70s in New York City. We are taken to a violent underworld where Holocaust survivors and Nazis are out for blood, settling unfinished business. As a once-again brilliant Al Pacino‘s character Meyer Offerman says, “The best revenge is revenge” and the Series sets-out to do that, exacting catharsis through bloody, gory revenge.
The Series feels authentic to the era and we meet several fascinating characters including Jonah played beautifully by Logan Lerman, out to avenge the loss of his grandmother. We meet also Detective Millie Morris (Jerrika Hinton) who is hot on the trail of a murder spree, ready to uncover some dark secrets she might not be prepared for.
Hunters is a must-watch and applause was loud after a screening at The Danforth Music Hall tonight. Kudos to Aamazon Prime Video for outdoing themselves on a great bash, inspired by the surroundings where HUNTERS is set. The fun, festive ’70s bash took us right into the streets of New York, complete with graffiti, cops, break dancers, pretzels, candied nuts and hot dogs. ET Canada’s Morgan Hoffman hosted the evening which saw guests leaving with collectible puzzles from the Series.
In case you haven’t seen it, here is a Trailer to HUNTERS:

The Washington D.C. Premiere of FURY took place last night at the Newseum and the Stars were out in full force indeed! Writer/Director David Ayer and the Cast including Star Brad Pitt walked the Star-Spangled Banner-lined Carpet, talking in-depth about their respective experiences filming the new World War II Drama.
On preparing for his exhausting role as Don “Wardaddy” Collier, Brad Pitt says “Listen, with five guys shoved in a tin can you get tired pretty fast, you don’t have a choice.”. He adds, “You know, we had to work the tank – and were fortunate enough to get to use live ammunition.”. We also learn about his preparation speaking to several War Veterans in understanding their tired psyches.
Listen to Pitt talk about his role below:
Director/Writer David Ayer also talks about his experience working with his brilliant Ensemble of Actors, stating “You think of World War II as a ‘clean war’ because the outcome was so positive, but for the guy inside the tank, it was incredibly murky and difficult.”. He sings Pitt’s praises proclaiming, “I think this is the best work Brad has ever done!”. In describing the Film, he feels “It isn’t your Dad’s World War II Movie”.
See Ayer‘s thoughts below:
Rising Star Logan Lerman who stars as Norman Ellison, also has great praise for his Co-Stars. He says, “We became brothers in pre-production. Our relationship getting to know each other so well made the Movie what it is.”.
See Lerman‘s thoughts below:

Already having won tons of praise for his work in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which premiered also at Ryerson Theatre the night prior, Logan Lerman is bound for big things. The Actor who stars in The Writers, was v. generous with Fans leaving the venue after disappointing them on his way in without so much as an Autograph or a Photo. Although legitimately a Star already based on his work in the successful Percy Jackson adaptation, Lerman is one of the most promising Stars to come out of TIFF 2012.
Apologies in advance for my ten chins seen in this Photo. Horrible angle. LOL
Based on the Novel of the same name, The Perk of Being a Wallflower comes with high expectations and made its debut at Ryerson Theatre tonight. Stars Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller drew a huge crowd, although several Fans were left disappointed as they left the venue without as much as a wave. Lerman and Miller did appear chummy, leaving side-by-side.
Fox Searchlight is scheduling a limited release for the Coming of Age Story beginning later this month.
