The Stath has become a cult figure all of his own and it’s basically come from a lot of hard work and non-stop effort from the husky-voiced Brit star. In this geninuely entertaining clip for Spy, the new comedy-action film from Paul Feig.
Opening on 5th June, the movie stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. When her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.
We all know McCarthy has slightly hit the unfunny bone in her last couple of outings but here it looks like she’s back on form, and we’re looking forward to seeing the ridiculous, more natural comedy side return!

Coming off a record-setting $5.5 billion year at the worldwide box office, 20th Century Fox brought an impressive slate of movies and stars to CinemaCon on Thursday — including the quartet of “Fantastic Four” actors.
The studio acknowledged that this version of “Fantastic Four” is being closely watched by its core audience. “The fanboys will let you know if you don’t get it right,” said new studio co-chair Stacey Snider before introducing the quartet comprising Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.
(In 2005, the studio also released a “Fantastic Four,” which grossed $330.6 million worldwide in box office.)
“We’re not supposed to say much about this,” Teller told the audience before the footage played. “Fantastic Four,” which will be released on Aug. 7, is a reimagining of Marvel’s superhero team. It centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, which changes their physical form. The »

Man Up (2015)
Written by Tess Morris
Directed by Ben Palmer
UK, France, 2015
At 34, Nancy (Londoner-accented Lake Bell) is a flakey journalist on the reluctant look for love at the pestering of friends and family. Through a case of mistaken identity hinging on a self-help book, she winds up on a date turned epic day with Jack (Simon Pegg), an online marketing manager. Charming, right? It’s this on-the-nose “charm” which will divide audiences into lovers and haters (with this viewer falling more towards the latter). In spite of a stellar cast, Man Up falls flat on its promising premise of being a rom-com for nonbelievers.
From the very outset, Nancy is the cool-not-cool girl of quirky nonchalance – watching Silence of the Lambs, writing affirmations in her moleskine, chomping on a baguette, flailing in interactions with members of the opposite sex. Everything she does and says denotes a certain out-of-place yet above-it-all persona, »

Heist movies work best when there is a hint of danger involved, so why not put the characters in a scenario like being trapped in a submarine hunting for gold while trying to hide from the Russian Navy? That is the idea that Black Sea works with as well as adding a few more familiar themes to the mix.
When tipped off about a sunken WW2 U-Boat in the depths of the Black Sea still carrying its gold Robinson (Jude Law) brings together a collection of men both British and Russian to man an old submarine to go down and retrieve the gold. Funded by a shadowy backer the plans seem to be going well until tensions between the men lead to an explosion of violence which »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

Director: Kevin Macdonald
From the initial opening sequence and just hearing the words ‘Nazi gold’ and ‘submarine’, I figured we’d be settling down to a war-time underwater drama but Black Sea actually offers up an intense thriller with a sterling cast that’s set in the modern day and it’s refreshingly unique.
After submarine Captain Robinson (Jude Law) is given redundancy by the salvage company he’s worked for 11 years, he learns from a laid-off friend that an old Nazi U-boat is sat at the bottom of the Black Sea with rumoured gold sat inside it’s rusting body. He gathers a team of rag-tag men from across the world – that have a very specific skill set – and then they »

Spy opens on June 5 in the Us and the UK. »
Now, for Europe, it’s the next high-end drama. All over Europe, as Cannes’ Mip TV market will underscore, pay TV operators (Canal Plus and Sky), broadcasters (Italy’s Mediaset, Spain’s Atresmedia), and some of its mightiest film-tv production companies (France’s Studiocanal, Germany’s Constantin) are either moving into English-language drama or amping up production.
Several market factors are at work. “There’s a highly competitive U.S. market for drama in premium and basic cable,” says Tim Westcott, analyst at Ihs Technology. “In international, premium pay TV operators are looking to invest in original series to protect their core business from Svod operators who are offering content more cheaply.”
The result: A near feeding frenzy for the production and acquisition of ambitious, »

It’s all there in that swooning opening music: Gattaca isn’t just another sleek film about the future. The feature debut of New Zealand-born director Andrew Niccol, the smart, elegant, intensely moving Gattaca may just be his finest film to date.
The film introduces us to Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke), who’s in the process of a carrying out a painstaking daily ritual: shaving every stray hair from his body, exfoliating his skin and burning the material left behind - it’s as though Vincent’s treating himself as a crime scene.
Vincent lives in a future where genetic profiling has divided society into Valids - those whose DNA has been fettled to perfection by scientists before birth - and In-valids - those conceived naturally, with all potential genetic flaws it involves. »
