On the new A&E drama series Those Who Kill, homicide detective Catherine Jensen (Chloë Sevigny) tracks down serial killers while attempting to come to terms with her own dark past. To help her with both, she enlists the help of forensic psychologist Thomas Schaeffer (James D’Arcy), who also has his own demons to work through. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor James D’Arcy talked about how he came to be a part of Those Who Kill, what made him want to get involved with the project, how much he loved working with Chloë Sevigny, the research he did in figuring out what kind of man this would be, how both Catherine and Thomas are manipulating each other, the bigger mystery that’s at the heart of the story, whether their relationship might cross a line, making sure to keep things light on set, what »

Although I doubt that many of you are clamouring for another instalment in the Resident Evil series, the franchise is seemingly as undefeatable as its undead antagonists. The fifth and most recent film in the franchise Resident Evil: Retribution, was a hit at the worldwide box office and made $240 Million on a $65 Million budget. This quickly lead to Sony green lighting a sixth film in the incredibly lucrative series based on the video games from Capcom.
With an official release date of September 12th 2014 and virtually no updates since its announcement, it was beginning to look very very unlikely that Milla Jovovich would be back to the zombie-killing action so soon. Now series writer and director Paul W.S. Anderson (Death Race, The Three Musketeers) has given an update on the currently untitled Resident Evil 6 whilst promoting his new film Pompeii. You can read what Anderson had to say below: »

Milla Jovovich's apocalyptic she-warrior Alice reaches level four of the game-based sci-fi action saga. As the all-powerful Umbrella Corporation's T-virus continues to turn humans into the walking dead, Alice's search for survivors leads her to a prison fortress in La. But while those inside are desperate to get out, there are a million undead cannibals hungry to get in. »
History suggests that it took about six hours for Mt. Vesuvius to bury Pompeii in a thick coat of lava and ash. It took most critics even less time to bury “Pompeii” the movie in volcanic invective, resulting in a woeful 28% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an only slightly more encouraging 41 on Metacritic. Meanwhile, the vox populi has spoken, leading to a dismal $10 million opening weekend (against a reported $100 million budget). But look closer and, like those flailing limbs jutting out from the real Pompeii’s petrified in-situ corpses, a few persuasive dissenters can be heard amid the dismissive din. They douse the violent inferno with enthusiastic praise for the movie’s action sequences, for its use of 3D, and above all for its director, Paul W.S. Anderson. And they are not wrong to do so. Welcome to the cult of the vulgar auteur.
Of course, one can scarcely »

Washington, February 24: Milla Jovovich has opened up about the civil strife in her homeland Ukraine and insisted that she wants to help the helpless people there.
The Ukrainian model said that she has been following the events that culminated in the collapse of President Viktor Yanukovych's government and she wants to help out in raising funds to benefit hospitals and aid workers in the city, Contactmusic reported.
The 'Resident Evil' star said that she has no taste for politics, but she will do everything in her power to help the helpless and she has always "put her money where her mouth is" when it comes to helping. »

There are certain events from history that inherently lend themselves to being depicted on the movie screen. One such event is the destruction of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii following the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in 79 Ad. Pompeii has already been used as the setting of no less than nine films, many of them based on or inspired by Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s 1834 novel The Last Days of Pompeii. Now, the famous disaster is being brought to the screen again in a new film by director/writer/producer Paul W. S. Anderson, simply titled Pompeii. While Pompeii manages to be kind of fun, it remains pretty dumb, definitely cheesy, and not something you should rush out to see.
In the year 79 Ad, Milo (Kit Harington) is a Celtic slave who has been gaining fame for his prowess as a gladiator. When Milo and his fellow slaves are taken »

Kiev, Ukraine -- Ukrainian born actress and model, Milla Jovovich, has thrown her weight behind efforts to raise money to help the victims of violence in Kiev. Jovovich, the daughter of a Serbian pediatrician and a Russian actress, was born in the city and has been following the tumultuous events that culminated this weekend in the collapse of President Viktor Yanukovych's control and the takeover of the capital by protestors. The Hollywood-based actress, who has recently been shooting night scenes on location in London for James McTeigue's Survivor, has been using what she terms "downtime" to lament the lack of

Pompeii, so-called vulgar auteurist Paul W. S. Anderson’s latest extravaganza, is a love story and a disaster movie, a prison film and a paean to a certain kind of tried-and-true action pic many directors attempt but few make as involving and effortlessly enjoyable as “the other” Paul Anderson. Since his 1994 debut, Shopping, he has, with moxie and aplomb, uncorked one high-concept genre thrill ride after another. In his first film since 2008 without his wife, the actress and model Milla Jovovich, the British veteran deftly takes on the sword-and-sandals adventure epic. After opening with an odd epigraph about the […] »

For reasons unbeknownst to most logical human beings, moviegoers will soon be “treated” to Pompeii, a historical epic from Paul W.S. Anderson, the man who delivered such modern masterpieces as Resident Evil and The Three Musketeers. For fans of Kit Harington’s chiseled abs, the film may prove to be well-worth shelling out a extra few dollars for 3D, but for the rest of us, Pompeii will likely hold little more than a few eye-catching explosions and a heaping of laughable moments instantly questionable by any of us who can point Italy out on a map. Even die-hard Anderson fans may be turned off once they realize that Milla Jovovich is nowhere to be found and, even if she was, it would be really, really hard for her to punch, kick and shoot her way through millions of tons of volcanic ash.
And so, there’s no better time to »

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...
The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.
Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

Unlike 2012, The Day After Tomorrow or other similar disaster movies, what you see here actually happened. You can read […]

It's been 1 1/2 years since the announcement of an all-women Expendables movie was made, and about the same amount of time has passed since our last update on the proposed project. Expendables 2 director Simon West got the ball rolling in 2012 when he expressed interest in an all-female spin-off of the The Expendables franchise, telling E! Online, "I like the idea of the Expenda-Belles where it's seven or eight women mercenaries. It would be Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Milla Jovovich, the list goes on. Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis would be great... It would be running parallel. They would meet up and then they would fight and they would join up and save »

It seems that Millennium Films is very serious about creating an all-female version of "The Expendables," because the company just hired Robert Luketic (Killers, 21) to direct the upcoming film, called "The ExpendaBelles," from a script by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith (Legally Blonde). Plot: When America's Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world's top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it. The only way in: some of the world's deadliest female operatives must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator . and instead save the scientist and the day. Casting is currently underway, with Meryl Streep, Milla Jovovich and Cameron Diaz previously mentioned to be in talks. »
The story follows an elite group of highly trained female mercenaries brought together for a covert hostage rescue mission. Once behind enemy lines, they discover that they will also need to topple an evil dictator bent on world domination.
This re-teams Luketic with his "Legally Blonde" scribes Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah who've penned the female action comedy spinoff. Sylvester Stallone and Kevin King will produce and shooting is slated to begin this Summer.

The Sylvester Stallone-produced The ExpendaBelles has been in the works for a while now, but the movie (which has been described as the “estrogen-powered equivalent of the testosterone-fuelled The Expendables franchise”) finally has a director attached.
21 and Monster in Law helmer Robert Luketic will direct, re-teaming with Legally Blonde writers Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah. Shooting is expected to start this summer, while casting should also begin soon.
Various names have been linked to The ExpendaBelles since it was first announced, with one report last year claiming that Meryl Streep, Cameron Diaz, and Milla Jovovich were all in talks. Deadline meanwhile say that nobody is set as of yet, and a short list is only just now being put together.
Here’s the logline for the movie. It certainly sounds like a unique(?) premise!

Today marks the opening of New York Fashion Week and a Throwback Thursday, which means we must celebrate this stylish tradition in the most vintage way possible. Once upon a time, Kimye had no meaning and NFL running back Reggie Bush was considered the brightest star Kris Jenner had managed to sink her teeth into. And in 2009, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were simply two of the front row guests admiring the Y-3 fall collection. Separately. As in, they were not yet romantically linked but were sitting so close! Do you think Reggie felt the endless love oozing out from Yeezy’s pores? Did Milla Jovovich feel awkward or really awkward?
Any casual fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians knows that Kim and Kanye have known each other for years, and took their time before moving from friends to lovers. (A recent Instagram photo from sister Kourtney speaks to this point. »

The all-female Expendables spin-off The ExpendaBelles has secured a director, with Deadline reporting that Robert Luketic has signed on to the project, which reunites him with Legally Blonde screenwriters Kristen Smith and Karen McCullah. Sylvester Stallone is producing, while Avi Lerner will serve as executive producer. Here's the official synopsis:
When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it.

As most of you already know, The Expendabelles is a female take on Sylvester Stallone's action franchise The Expendables. The movie is being developed over at Millennium Films, and they've hired Robert Luketic to direct the film, which Stallone is also producing. Just so you know, this is the same guy that directed Legally Blonde, 21, The Ugly Truth, Killers, and the incredibly awful film Paranoia. Once you read the ridiculous plot synopsis (via: Deadline) you'll understand why they ended up with this director,
When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it.

Robert Luketic is now signed on to direct the female version of The Expendables, known as The ExpendaBelles. Several actresses have been rumored for the film in the past (Milla Jovovich, Cameron Diaz, Kate Beckinsale) but apparently, no one has been officially cast and the producers are working on their shortlist of who they want to have star.
Penning the script will be Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah, who wrote Luketic’s Legally Blonde, and producing will be Avi Lerner. The story is set to revolve around a group of deadly female operatives who “must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator” after “America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists.” Sounds pretty crazy and it could turn out to be a lot of fun. »
