First Look at action-thriller ‘Criminal’ starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Ryan Reynolds

21 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m starting to get the impression that Ryan Reynolds likes to get in the minds of his craft-mates…literally.

Not satisfied with ‘shedding’ Ben Kingsley in Self/Less and his delusional self in The Voices (which may help to explain his sojourn as the Green Lantern), Reynolds finds his deceased memories, secrets and skills as a CIA operative implanted into apathetically dangerous death-row inmate Jerry Stewart (Kevin Costner) in hopes that he will complete the deceased operative mission and prevent a diabolical plot.

Scripted by Double Jeopardy writers Douglas Cook and David Weisberg, the Ariel Vromen directed action-thriller with a hint of sci-fi also stars Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones.

This high-concept offering from Summit Entertainment looks promising at first glance so check the clip and poster art out for yourself and let us know what you think:

Criminal opens in UK and Us cinemas on 15th April, »

Kevin Costner Steals Ryan Reynolds’ Mind in First Trailer For ‘Criminal’

12 February 2016 2:20 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In case The Change-Up and Self/less didn’t fill your quotient of Ryan Reynolds body-swapping movies, this spring brings yet another. While the Deadpool actor is mostly left out of the marketing materials for Criminal, it is his character’s mind and skills that get transplanted into that of Kevin Costner‘s character of a death row inmate.

Ahead of an April release, we now have the first trailer for the film which also features Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Alice Eve, and Gal Gadot. Coming from Ariel Vromen, who gave us The Iceman a few years back, the trailer sells a fairly run-of-the-mill high-concept actioner, but with a strong cast, hopefully it’ll be one that’s worthwhile. Check out the trailer and poster below.

Criminal opens on April 15th, 2016.

Watch: First Trailer for Ariel Vromen's Mind Implant Thriller 'Criminal'

12 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The Mission Is In The Memories. Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for an intriguing high-concept sci-fi film called Criminal, that is indeed about a couple of criminals, but also so much more. Ryan Reynolds plays a deceased CIA operative whose memories and thoughts are implanted into the mind of a criminal, played by Kevin Costner, who is recruited by the head of the CIA, played by Gary Oldman, to finish a mission. The cast includes Gal Gadot, Alice Eve, Scott Adkins, Antje Traue, Michael Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones as the Doc. This is the kind of movie that makes you legitimately wonder if the people who made it have any idea how technology works, or if they just like big ideas that sell and the way it all sounds. Oh well. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ariel Vromen's Criminal, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: The story of »

‘Criminal’ Trailer: Kevin Costner Has Ryan Reynolds on His Mind, Literally

12 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The first trailer for director Ariel Vromen‘s Criminal looks familiar, but in an oddly comforting way. After watching this footage, you can assemble the entire plot of the film in your head, predict every character arc, and call every twist, but it still feels perfectly fine. This is the kind of mid-range, slightly predictable thriller that we […]

Criminal is an incoming thriller starring Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones and Gal Gadot. Here's the trailer.

Ryan Reynolds, right now, is riding high off the back of Deadpool, which is playing in cinemas from this weekend. Kevin Costner, meanwhile, is someone we have devoted many thousands of words of this site too, and will continue to do so.

They lead the cast of upcoming thriller Criminal, which also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Oldman and Gal Gadot. That’s comfortably one of our favourite casting line ups of the year.

The movie arrives in cinemas in April, and we’ve got the first trailer and a synopsis right here. So we’d best get to work…

And here's that synopsis...

Criminal Trailer: Watch Ryan Reynolds Body Swap, Again

11 February 2016 6:52 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If there's an award for "Best Body Swapped Performance" in Hollywood, Ryan Reynolds is clearly trying to win it. While this weekend is clearly all about Deadpool, a trailer for Reynolds' latest round of out of body action, Criminal, has been released in anticipation of the main event. You can watch the trailer for yourself below. For as big of a part Ryan Reynolds' character plays in the events of Criminal, it's not his role as a crucial CIA analyst that's going to be front and center to the film's plot. If anything, this recently released trailer by Lionsgate shows us that Kevin Costner's Jericho Stewart is the physical lead of the film. A loose cannon with a checkered past, Stewart is about to undergo an experimental procedure where said analyst is, for lack of a better term, "uploaded," into his mind. The purpose of this exercise is »

Ryan Reynolds gets inside of Kevin Costner's head in first trailer for Criminal

11 February 2016 12:55 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ryan Reynolds has a thing for switching bodies.

Criminal marks the third film where he plays a character who for one reason or another is implanted into someone else's body. First there was The Change Up, then last year's Self/Less, and now, in what looks to be the best of the bunch, there's Criminal.

This time around, it's Reynolds character who embodies Kevin Costner's "criminal". A former CIA agent who has been killed, his mind is planted into the body of a dangerous convict, in hopes of revealing information from before his untimely death.

The film boasts an impressive cast. Along with Reynolds and Costner, there's Gary OldmanTommy Lee Jones, and our future Wonder WomanGal Gadot. Though the plot is familiar, Criminal looks like it could take it to new lengths. With this many great actors in one film, and an impressive first trailer, we have »

Criminal follows a dangerous convict (Kevin Costner) who's implanted with the memories & skills of a deceased CIA agent (Ryan Reynolds) in a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot.

How’s this for a high-concept thriller? A dead CIA operative's memories, secrets and skills are implanted into a former death row inmate in hopes that he can complete a mission to foil a diabolical plot. Kevin Costner is your implantee: in and out of prison half his life, no impulse control and “unable to calculate the consequences of his actions.” The result is a series of violent car crashes, huge explosions, intense gunplay — and a little spark with the wife of the… »

Wonder Woman Is Deadpool's Widow in First 'Criminal' Trailer

11 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The main star of "Criminal" seems to be Kevin Costner as a convict with "no impulse control" and "a totally lack of empathy" for anyone, but the first trailer also shows what the daughter of Deadpool and Wonder Woman might look like. 'Cause you know you were wondering.

Costner's criminal gets an implant in his head containing the memories and skills of a dead CIA intelligence officer. That dead agent is played by Ryan Reynolds. The dead agent's wife is played by Gal Gadot. Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones appear in the trailer as government bigshots of some kind -- bad guys? -- who want the information that is now in Costner's head.

The trailer shows us that the events of the film give Costner's criminal the sense of empathy he previously lacked, including a connection to the widow and daughter left behind.

12 of cinema's biggest and most expensive film sets

facebook

google+

We celebrate a century of huge and expensive film sets, from historical epics to sprawling fantasies and sci-fi action movies...

The advent of cinema saw the art of set design gradually spread its wings from the relative confines of the theatre. As movies established their own language and became ever more ambitious in the early part of the 20th century, so set designers were called on to create increasingly expansive and more detailed backdrops.

As the list of movies below proves, the construction of huge sets has been a  major part of cinema for the past century. And with scale comes expense, as the recreation of ancient landmarks, futuristic cities or doomed ocean liners takes hundreds of artists, designers and crafty types months of labour to plan and construct. Often, these sets are on the screen for a few scant minutes before they're torn down and largely »

Michael Douglas Just Getting Started with Career Achievement Honor

8 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following in the footsteps of such previous career achievement honorees as Robert De Niro, Robert Redford, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas is being recognized “for the longevity of his career, the quality of his achievements, and his overall striving for excellence,” says Aarp’s Robert Love. “He’s also a great activist and well-known as an all-around good guy.”

Ironically, in a career spanning more than 50 years, the actor-producer and Oscar winner has enjoyed his biggest successes embodying bad guys, anti-heroes and jerks. And even a short list of his greatest hits — “Wall Street,” for which he won the lead actor Oscar, “Fatal Attraction,” “Basic Instinct,” “The War of the Roses” and “Disclosure” — reveals just how good he’s been at it.

The actor, who’s always had a gift for playing ethically challenged and morally ambiguous characters, fully inhabited the reptilian Gordon Gekko — his most iconic role, »

Film Review: ‘Misconduct’

4 February 2016 11:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Faint echoes of decades-old thrillers as diverse as “Fatal Attraction” and “Presumed Innocent” abound through “Misconduct,” a flagrantly derivative but modestly diverting drama of the sort that once claimed acres of shelf space at Blockbuster outlets. Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino saunter through the proceedings while picking up easy paychecks and providing marquee allure, but it’s up to the top-billed Josh Duhamel to do most of the heavy lifting in this neo-noir scenario about an ambitious lawyer who bends the rules during litigation against a corrupt pharmaceutical tycoon, only to become entangled in at least two conspiracies.  Limited theatrical play will be a mere formality, as is usually the case for such VOD-ready fare.

Duhamel plays Ben Cahill, a corner-cutting up-and-comer at a New Orleans law firm who’s worried about his wife, Charlotte (Alice Eve), a registered nurse who recently suffered a miscarriage, and now appears to be channeling her grief into workaholism. »
