The Good, the Bad and the Spook
• A film that seems like a more subtle version of "The Lord of the Rings" universe.
• Based on a book called "The Spook's Apprentice" which has a strong following, but with the additional sub-plot added in the film, it turns the whole movie into a rushed experience.
• Even with A-list cast like Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore, the film does not make a strong impact when compared to other fantasy/epic movies out there.
• Dianna Agron, Imogen Poots and Felicity Jones tested for the lead role after Jennifer Lawrence dropped out.
