Congressman Stephen Collins is a rising star in Washington; handsome, unflappable and seemingly honorable, he's seen as his party's next presidential nominee. Until, however, his research assistant/mistress is found murdered and damaging secrets come pouring out. Journalist Cal McAffrey, Collins' old friend, must investigate the murder, and walks headlong into a massive cover-up involving some of the nation's most promising political and corporate figures.

He sends his henchman Frank to scare the land's owner, McBain, but Frank kills him instead and pins it on a known bandit, Cheyenne. Meanwhile, a mysterious gunslinger with a score to settle and McBain's new wife, Jill, arrives in town.

   Tulsa  Let's try that again. Gram's comment was not there when I wrote mine. Must have been in the ethers. Give her the win.

Also this looks like a very bad Mt. Rushmore promo with people looking up.

2015 Title/Actors?
It's been three years since Mike Lane's retirement from stripping, but the former dancer misses the excitement and feeling of being on stage. Most of all, though, he misses the best friends that he ever had, the crew known as the Kings of Tampa. Opportunity comes knocking when the guys look him up as they travel to Myrtle Beach, S.C., for a stripper convention. With the promise of outrageous fun, a reinvigorated Mike can't resist the chance to join in and take it off again.

   Richdet  None of the ladies willing to toss these boys a dollar? I guess I will solve this one. This would be "Magic Mike" and friends. Channing Tatum center stage (of course ). Matthew McConaughey (also of course; spelling may actually be correct ) to the left of CT. Now for the less obvious. To the extreme left we have Joe Manganiello (am I winning the spelling ribbon? ), one of my favorite characters on "True Blood," who played the werewolf on that show.

Shifting to the right of CT, we have Matt Bomer, who was also on a tv show but I forget the title, and I am afraid I don't recall the name of the guy on the very right -- ironically, because he was sort of a central character in the story. I think he is a Brit, if that helps.

Sweet movie, as it turned out. The first one, that is. The sequel, not so much.
Yesterday at 16:36 EST .

   Richdet  By the way. The quiz is describing the sequel. But the picture is from the original. How do I know? McConaughey is only in the first one. And the guy whose name I don't know, ditto.
Yesterday at 16:38 EST .

   MeiDei  This one is "Magic Mike XXL" (Must be the sequel you speak of ) starring Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer (liked him in the TV series "White Collar" ), Kevin Nash and Joe Manganiello (spelling applause ). I didn't see this one, I - (Chose the picture with the most people hoping at least one or more would be recognized & named for a solve - good catch Rich! )
Yesterday at 17:29 EST .

   Richdet  I looked up the young actor whose name escaped me. He is Alex Pettyfer, the one on the rear right in the above pic.

When the American wife of a wealthy London-based financier starts receiving frightening phone calls, she believes her life is in danger, but when she protests to her family following a near-fatal accident, they and the police doubt her claims and even her sanity.

   Gram77  I sort of remember this movie. Think Doris' husband or someone listening on her phone was after her. When it gets serious and she is under attack, a workman from construction next to her building hears all the commotion he rescues her.
Monday at 19:08 EST .

   MeiDei  Your thinking is good - an you add the names of the other 3 main actors - or the title?
Monday at 19:18 EST .

   Richdet  Movie is "Midnight Lace." Doris Day of course is the heroine shown in the above pictures. John Gavin (good guy ) is at top right. Myrna Loy (Doris' chic auntie ) is in middle-right picture. Roddy McDowall (as Doris' housekeeper's ne'er-do-well son ) is at bottom left, with Rex Harrison (as Doris' husband ) at bottom right.

Entertaining "woman in peril" movie. Doris Day does hysteria well.

In April 1945, the Allies are making their final push in the European theater. A battle-hardened Army sergeant named Don "Wardaddy" Collier, leading a Sherman tank and a five-man crew, undertakes a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Hopelessly outnumbered, outgunned and saddled with an inexperienced soldier in their midst, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds as they move to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

   StormCnter  The film is "Fury" and I recognize Brad Pitt in the foreground. This was a film that got excellent reviews, but war movies depress me. I've never seen "Saving Private Ryan", either. However, I am a big fan of "The Longest Day". Go figure.
Yesterday at 08:03 EST .

   MeiDei  Your aim was good on this one! It was a good movie, different from the usual war film. Brad is not charming in this one but his heart is in the right place and you warm up to his character. In the end I felt the movie revolved around the youngest soldier.

Everett Stone wants to bring his girlfriend, Meredith Morton, to meet his bohemian Connecticut family at Christmas. Straitlaced Meredith, feeling she needs backup, asks her sister Julie to come along. Hoping to win the approval of her boyfriend's parents Sybil and Kelly and the rest of the family, instead Meredith succeeds only in highlighting her uptight personality and making Everett doubt his intentions.

   Gram77  This rolls around every Christmas and I try to watch it no matter what I am doing. The Family Stone. It's a really great story about a truly wonderful family. It's the only thing Sarah Jessica Parker has done (in my opinion ) that I have liked. I don't know how many names I can remember, but, not in any order, Parker, McAdam, Keaton,Mulroney, Dane, Wlson Nelson and that's all I've got.

   StormCnter  "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean". Langtry, where Judge Bean presided is about 25 miles south of our old ranch. It's a tourist stop, but not a very big one.
