Former indie auteur David Gordon Green‘s jump to the big time started off with such promise. Let’s take a little time travel trip! 2008′s Pineapple Express caught Seth Rogen and James Franco just as the weirdo lovefest that is their comedic team-up was really taking off (with Freaks & Geeks behind them and The Interview way out in the future, it was kind of the perfect opportunity to see what these two could do — which is be weird and lovable and funny with the best of them). The follow-up wasn’t quite as glorious, as 2011 marked a low point in Green’s humorous output (this is a sentiment expressed with admiration and respect, as my Dgg fandom has been well-documented in this space), with both Your Highness and The Sitter performing poorly in the domestic market and, uh, also just not being very good. Things have been looking up, however »

(Cbr) Nicolas Cage films bring with them a certain level of excitement. Not so much because fans expect Oscar-worthy material, but because the actor offers performance that range from “intense” to “completely bonkers.” It’s too early to tell where "Outcast" falls, but the trailer certainly shows him doing his thing while wielding a sword and playing the reluctant teacher for Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu. Cage plays a former Crusader living in the woods who winds up helping Christensen to protect Liu’s young brother, who’s supposed to be the next emperor. "Outcast" is directed by Nick Powell based on a script by James Dormer (Strike Back). This marks Powell’s directorial debut after working for years in stunts. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 27, 2015. »

Robert Hansen, the serial killer who went on a murderous spree in the 70s and early 80s, died at Alaska Regional Hospital on Thursday. He was 75.
Hansen, who had a “do not resuscitate” order, had been in failing health for the last year leading up to his death, reported Ktuu. He’d served the majority of his 461-years plus life sentence at a state prison in Seward, but was transferred to Anchorage Correctional Center in May of this year to receive medical attention.
Hansen infamously confessed to killing 17 women during a 12-year span. He was ultimately convicted for four of the murders in 1984. Hansen, who had worked as a baker in Anchorage and was known as “The Butcher Baker” during the height of his infamy, also confessed to raping an additional 30 women.
During the time in which Hansen, who was married with children, committed his crimes, »
DreamWorks Animation has made a few slight release date changes today, moving The Croods 2 from November 3, 2017 to December 22, 2017 while Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves shifts from November 2, 2018 to December 21, 2018.
The Croods 2 currently has its new December 22, 2017 date to itself, but it comes just two days after an untitled animated project from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Animation. If it would have stayed in its old November 3, 2017, it would have had to face an untitled Marvel Studios adventure. It should also be noted that 20th Century Fox's Avatar 3 is also slated to be released in December 2017, although an exact release date has not been given yet.

Oh man, this doesn’t look very good, which never really stopped me before from watching a Nic Cage flick before, and probably won’t stop me now either. Nicholas Cage has done enough good by me in the 90′s (The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off) that I can forgive most of his misses. Even in the absolute […]

Ever wonder what Hayden Christensen is up to these days? I mean, probably not, because like most people, you probably forgot he existed in the first place. But today we have an answer for you anyway. According to the first Outcast trailer, he’s gallivanting around ancient China with none other than Nic Cage, trying to […]

Have you been wondering what happened to Hayden Christensen? No, neither have we but apparently he's been hiding out somewhere, growing up a little and signing up for mediocre looking movies co-starring Nicholas Cage.
From the first trailer for Outcast, that's definitely not the case here and this looks just as mediocre as you might expect from a direct to home video offering. Christensen stars as a "mysterious warrior" who teams up with a 14 year old kid and his sister, children of a deposed Chinese Emperor, as they fight their uncle who i [Continued ...] »
Ostensibly, Outcast is an historical drama set during the Crusades about two disillusioned Knights Templar who decide to protect the children of an assassinated Chinese emperor from their uncle who desires the throne. But it also has Nicolas Cage in it, so it’s probably best to prepare for anything.
The film also stars Hayden Christensen as Cage’s former brother-in-arms. But to be fair, it’s hard to get anyone to notice you when you’re next to a Nicolas Cage who has grown a beard, taken on a vaguely British accent, and begun calling himself “The White Ghost. »

While the appearance on the surface might be that Hollywood hasn't been paying attention to David Gordon Green, he's quietly been putting himself back on the right radar screens by knuckling down with a string of indie flicks. The out of nowhere "Prince Avalanche" was a pleasant surprise, "Joe" earned terrific reviews and notices for Nicolas Cage's performance even if audiences didn't care, and we can only imagine his forthcoming "Manglehorn" with Al Pacino is earning the right buzz, in the right places. And by that we mean, Green and George Clooney now roll hard together. Green has been tapped to direct Sandra Bullock in "Our Brand Is Crisis," a long brewing project over at Clooney and Grant Heslov's Smokehouse Pictures shingle. And it's easy to see why the pair have stuck with this movie for so long. The dark comedy is based on some great material, Rachel Boynton »

I am not sure anything makes sense anymore after seeing the trailer for Outcast. First off, it stars Anakin Skywalker himself, Hayden Christensen, and Nicolas Cage as warriors during the Crusades. Secondly, it somehow appears that Christensen has surpassed Cage to gain top billing in the film. Thirdly, the movie appears to have the warrior heroes coming to the aid of Chinese royalty in what could be the most insane and all over the place film I have seen in a long time. Outcast was »

The action film sees Cage attempt a British accent as Gallain, a rebellious outlaw during the Crusades.
Cage's character teams up with Arken, played by Hayden Christensen, who is seeking redemption by protecting the rightful owner of the Chinese throne.
It's almost hard to believe Nicolas Cage only has 71 films to his credit (not including those in pre-production) on IMDb. It seems like every time I turn around there's a new one to discuss and this trailer for Outcast boy do I have a doozy of a storyline for you. Here Nicolas Cage plays Arken, a mysterious warrior -- "I am the White Ghost!" -- who teams up with the daughter and son of a deposed Chinese Emperor to defeat their cruel Uncle, who seeks their deaths. Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu co-star with stuntman-turned-director Nick Powell at the helm and a screenplay from James Dormer ("Strike Back"). The accent Cage is putting on here is hilarious and I guess this one also answers that age old question: "Whatever happened to Hayden Christensenc" Come to think of it, wouldn't it have been better if this was set in present day »

Is there any rhyme or reason to the filmography of Nicolas Cage? We know the actor is talented, but some of the projects he’s been appearing in lately are just such bizarre choices that it almost makes you forget he has an Oscar stashed away somewhere. Case in point: Outcast, a battle epic set in ancient China that seems notable only in that it will give the actor more material to add to the next clip reel of him losing his shit.
The first trailer for Outcast is supremely confusing, and the plot is too convoluted for me to sum up here, so just read the synopsis (below) if you want a better idea of what to expect. But honestly, all you need to know is that Cage gets lines like “I am the white ghost,” giggles like a little girl and manages to conjure up one of the »

In Nicolas Cage's long, glorious, and bizarre filmography, Outcast could be more than a minor curiosity. The directorial debut of Nick Powell (stunt coordinator on Resident Evil: Retribution), Outcast takes place during the Crusades, and Cage plays Gallain, a rebellious outlaw who teams up with Arken (Hayden Christensen, who, to my surprise, is still in the acting business), a young man looking for redemption by protecting the rightful heir to the Chinese throne. If you needed more proof of China's growing power in the global film market, look to Outcast. First Cage; tomorrow: The World. But in the meantime, they only have Cage, or, more specifically, Cage trying to do a British accent, which is about as wonderful as you'd expect. Hit the jump to check out the Outcast trailer. The film will be released on February 27, 2015, and also stars Yifei Liu, Fernando Chien, Andy On, and Byron Lawson. »

A filmmaker can have all the production value in the world, but it's not worth a damn if your actors think they're starring in a high school play. That's exactly what seems to be happening in this trailer for Outcast from Arclight Films. In the film Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen are thrown back into 12th century China, which is already a hilarious premise in itself, as ex-Crusades warriors who team up to help the children of a deposed Chinese Emperor battle their murderous uncle. Honestly, despite how pretty this film looks, Cage and Christensen make it look laughably bad, especially with whatever accents they're poorly trying to pull off (Cage saying "lad" puts it over the top). But for that reason, it ay be worth seeing. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Nick Powell's Outcast from Deadline: Ancient China - Princess Lian and her younger brother, Zhao, flee »

Trying to outdo Nicolas Cage in the number of mediocre movies he can appear in, John Cusack is in yet another movie we didn't know existed (or possibly forgot about). It's called "The Factory," and apparently it's been on DVD since February. Huh. In any case, the U.K. trailer is here, and the folks who cut it really want to make sure a voiceover holds your hand, explaining everything every step of the way. Co-starring Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter"), Mae Whitman ("Arrested Development") and Katherine Waterston (one of our 2014 Actresses On The Rise), the generic story follows a cop hunting a serial killer who gets more than he bargained for when his own daughter goes missing. Morgan O'Neill (Sam Worthington surf movie "Drift") co-wrote and directed this wintery procedural, which doesn't seem to shake up the genre too much. But hey, if this kind of mediocrity helps Cusack keep his lights on, »

The trailer for Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen's upcoming fantasy action film Outcast has been released, and it actually looks good, which is something I haven't said about a Cage film in a very long time. On top of that, it seems like I haven't seen Christensen in a movie forever, so it's good to see that he found something to do. It doesn't look like the greatest movie in history, but it should provide some solid entertainment.
The film is set in 12th century China, and it follows a mysterious warrior who teams up with the daughter and son of a deposed Chinese emperor to defeat their cruel uncle, who wants them dead.
The movie was directed by stunt pro Nick Powell, who worked on films such as The Bourne Identity and Resident Evil: Retribution. There are a few really cool-looking shots in the trailer, and it looks »
