There are few people in the film industry who are better liked or more respected than the actor-writer-director Ethan Hawke. For this reason, many are surprised to learn that the 43-year-old, who is celebrating his 30th year in the business, and who will receive a career tribute at the New York Film Festival on Tuesday night, has received only one Oscar nomination for acting, 13 years ago for Training Day, despite giving a litany of great performances in memorable films over the years.

A new trailer for Predestination has been released.

Predestination follows Hawke as a temporal agent using time travel in an attempt to stop a murderous bomber, while posing undercover as a bartender.
Sarah Snook also stars as a bar customer who gets involved with Hawke's character and his scheme to bring the bomber to justice.
The film sees Hawke once again teaming up with the Spierig Brothers, who previously directed Daybreakers.
A two-time Academy Award-winner (with a further four nominations under his belt), Washington has achieved just about all there is to achieve in his glittering Hollywood career. Picking out his five best movies is a tricky job, but we've attempted to do it anyway. Read on to find out which Denzel movies we think are the absolute essentials...
Edward Zwick's American Civil War drama starred Washington as Private Silas Trip, a soldier in the first Union Army unit to be made up entirely of African-American men. Washington stole the movie from its leading man Matthew Broderick, and bagged a Supporting Actor Oscar win for his troubles. He was nominated two years prior for playing activist Steve Biko in Cry Freedom, but this was the movie that »

The sci-fi thriller Predestination teams Ethan Hawke back up with directors Michael and Peter Spierig. They all worked together on the vampire movie Daybreakers. Predestination is kind of like Steven Spielberg's Minority Report as Hawke plays a law-enforcement agent who stops crimes before they happen. He is pursuing a criminal who has escaped capture from him over and over again for years. It looks like a decently entertaining flick, so I'll give it a shot.
The film chronicles the life of a Temporal Agent (Hawke) sent on an intricate series of time-travel journeys designed to ensure the continuation of his law enforcement career for all eternity. Now, on his final assignment, the Agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.
The movie is set to be released in the U.S. something in 2015.

Predestination chronicles the life of a Temporal Agent (Ethan Hawke) sent on an intricate series of time-travel journeys designed to ensure the continuation of his law enforcement career for all eternity. Now, on his final assignment, the Agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.
When he’s not collaborating with Richard Linklater on beautifully understated indies about the passage of time, Ethan Hawke can often be found heading up thrillers. His recent genre successes include Sinister and The Purge, and now he’s reteaming with his Daybreakers directors Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig for Predestination. The time-traveling pic is based on […]

"Ethan Hawke, who has made a very lovely portrait of virtuoso pianist and teacher Seymour Bernstein, is going to be his own worst enemy in terms of getting people to actually see the damn thing," predicts Michael Sicinski in Cinema Scope. Seymour: An Introduction has screened at Telluride and Toronto and now arrives at the New York Film Festival. And so far, nearly all critics agree that, as Flavorwire's Jason Bailey puts it, it's "a lovely film, thoughtful and modest (in the best possible sense: brief, intimate, and true). Hawke shows real skill as a documentarian: He’s got a good eye and a crisp style, his archival footage is well-chosen and sparingly used, he moves between scenes and ideas gracefully and seamlessly, and there’s a real elegance to the film, one which seems to key off its subject." » - David Hudson »
Through the course of his career, Ethan Hawke has tried his hand at a number of genres, with 2013 alone seeing him appear in a horror film in The Purge, a drama in Before Midnight, and an action film in Getaway. His newest feature sees Hawke dive back into science fiction, reteaming with the Spierig Brothers for the first time since 2009′s Daybreakers. Titled Predestination, the film is based on a short story by Robert A. Heinlein, and follows a time travelling temporal agent tasked with jumping in time to apprehend killers before they commit their crimes whose last assignment involves him pursuing the one criminal that has always managed to elude him. Hawke stars alongside Sarah Snook and Noah Taylor, and the movie has yet to announce an American release date. A new trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Eighteen Films. One legend. Gravitas Ventures has revealed poster art for their upcoming documentary 21 Years: Richard Linklater, telling the story of Linklater's filmmaker career so far. Co-directed by Michael Dunaway and Tara Wood, the doc features (some of these guys are seen on the poster) Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Billy Bob Thornton, Jack Black, Kevin Smith, Parker Posey and many others. It's already set to premiere in theaters and VOD starting this November, so there's not too much longer of a wait for this one. I'm looking forward to delving deeper into Linklater's fascinating and invigorating career. Here's the first poster for Michael Dunaway & Tara Wood's documentary 21 Years: Richard Linklater: Description from publicity: "It's been said that the first 21 years defines the career of an artist.

A couple of months ago, we posted the first trailer for Michael and Peter Spierig's upcoming sci-fi film, Predestination, and through the power of time travel, another trailer is now upon us! Ethan Hawke, who previously collaborated with the brother directors in the 2009 vampiric horror film Daybreakers, stars as the enigmatic lead in this mind-bending picture. It's inspired by Robert Heinlein's short story "All You Zombies", so if you're familiar with the source material then you should have a fair idea of where this picture is going. Possible spoilers aside, it's still got potential to be a taut character-driven thriller, as this new trailer suggests. Also starring Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook, Predestination opens in theaters on January 9th. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. Take a look at the new international trailer for Predestination below (courtesy of Geek Nation): Here’s the official synopsis: In mid-’70s New York, »

The first promo for the Spieirg Brothers' time-travelling sci-fi Predestination arrived a couple of months ago, and now here's a second to pique your paradoxical interest. Appropriately the marketing campaign seems to be running backwards, since this new clip is a far more teaser-ish affair than the longer first glimpse.Not much there that wasn't revealed first time around, but interestingly there's far less footage of Australian actress Sarah Snook, who takes much of the acting weight as Ethan Hawke's new partner. There's a bigger emphasis on a surgical procedure too.If you've read Robert Heinlein's short story All You Zombies, on which Predestination is based, you might glean some of what might be going on, and why some things are better kept secret before a full viewing. Nothing to do with lumbering undead (the title is lifted from a quote towards the end of the story), it's »
It's Richard Linklater's world, and indie American filmmakers are just living in it. With candid testimonies from his favorite collaborators Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, along with Jack Black, Keanu Reeves, Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Mark Duplass, Billy Bob Thornton, Parker Posey and his contemporary Kevin Smith, "21 Years" reveals how Linklater became the modern-day indie film godfather. The doc traces Linklater from the days of pop cultural touchstones "Dazed and Confused" and debut film "Slacker" to the "Before" series and "Boyhood," two bar-setting, of-the-moment arthouse masterpieces. And with Linklater now a top pick for the Best Director Oscar, "21 Years" offers a well-timed toast to his legacy. Gravitas Ventures takes the film to theaters and VOD on November 7. Check out the new poster below. »

“I’m a temporal agent. We prevent crime before it takes place.” So says Ethan Hawke in the new international trailer for sci-fi actioner, Predestination. If you’re wondering why that one utterance sounds so familiar, that’s probably because it sounds similar to Steven Spielberg’s 2002 precog-hit Minority Report. Regardless of the similarities, this one looks kinda neat. It reunites Daybreakers directors Michael and Peter Spierig with Hawke for a tale that’s actually an intriguing proposition.
Part-Looper, part-Minority Report, the story of Hawke’s “Temporal Agent” follows him as he ventures off into the streams of time to stop future murderers from doing any killing. His final day on the job has him tasked with catching one more bad guy – but can he do it?
There’s some pretty cool material in the new trailer that elevates the done-before premise above the usual sci-fi machinations. The very »
