Kevin Durant Thunderstruck Movie

Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder are waiting to see whether they’ll face Miami or Boston in the finals, so in the meantime, Durant is most likely working on emoting and memorizing lines. The forward has pulled an MJ by starring in a new family-friendly movie called Thunderstruck. Instead of the old body-switching model, he (playing himself) faces difficulty because of a talent-transfer which leaves him as terrible as a small child. On the other end of that swap is Brian (Taylor Gray), a kid obsessed with basketball, Durant and making his school team. When he gets Durant’s talent, that last bit comes easy. Why he wants to join a team coached by Jim Belushi is unclear. It sounds low-rent, but the trailer proves that expectation wrong. Produced by Warners, it’s got a sort of Air Bud feel to it (except with a human instead of a Golden Retriever Receiver). It’s probably more than a little cheesy, but imagine you’re 10-years-old and dream of playing in the NBA. This movie is going to be magic for kids. Check out the trailer:

According to a press release, CBS Films has rounded up a fantastic cast for the upcoming movie Get A Job – which taps into the zeitgeist with frightening precision to tell the story of a group of college graduates struggling to find work alongside a father who is, surprise, also trying to find work. Why is it so exciting? For one, Bryan Cranston will be playing that father. For two, it’s being directed by Dylan Kidd – who may not be a household name, but should be after his hip indie flick Roger Dodger which paired a young Jesse Eisenberg with a brilliant Campbell Scott. For three, the rest of the cast features Anna Kendrick, Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole, Project X, How’s that for diversity?), Alison Brie, Brandon T. Jackson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Nick Braun, and comedian Jay Pharaoh. That’s three great reasons to get excited about this project. Some are even multi-partite. That’s how serious this is. Also, Pharaoh’s character is named Skeezy D, so there is clearly genius at work here. Great to see CBS Films pull something excellent out of the hat here.
