Jason Statham shares his Real Spy credentials in Nsfw Clip from ‘Spy’

24 April 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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!

‘Fantastic Four’ Footage, Cast Impress Exhibitors at CinemaCon

23 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »

Tribeca 2015: ‘Man Up’ Fails to Woman Up

23 April 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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, »

John Ford's Stagecoach and The Searchers, Howard Hawks's Rio Bravo and Red River, and Clint Eastwood's The Outlaw Josey Wales and Unforgiven come to mind for Ben Mendelsohn, who stars with Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee in John Maclean's untamed Slow West. He has recently been seen in David Mackenzie's prison drama Starred Up with Jack O'Connell, Kevin Macdonald's treasure-hunting tale Black Sea with Jude Law, Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly with Ray Liotta, Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy and James Gandolfini and Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines with Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes.

Michael Fassbender (Silas) and Ben Mendelsohn (Payne): "At that stage, he is starting to make a move towards taking the boy."

Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a mysterious young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern, who stole his crown and murdered his parents, and become King.

‘Black Sea’ Blu-ray Review

14 April 2015 5:51 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jude Law, Michael Smiley, David Threlfall, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Tobias Menzies, Jodie Whittaker | Written by Dennis Kelly | Directed by Kevin Macdonald

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 »

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! »

Black Sea Blu-ray Review

13 April 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kevin Macdonald

Starring: Jude LawScoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, David Threlfall, Michael Smiley, Grigory DobryginJodie Whittaker

Certificate: 15

Extras: A Dive into the Black Sea, Feature commentary with 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 »

Mip 2015: High-End Dramas Replace Reality TV

8 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the 1990s, after “Survivor,” “Pop Idol” and “Big Brother” galvanized Europe’s TV biz, the Next Big Thing was assumed to be a juggernaut reality format.

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, »

Gattaca: looking back at Andrew Niccol’s Sf masterpiece

8 April 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Good Kill in UK cinemas this week, Ryan looks back at writer-director Andrew Niccol’s classic sci-fi debut, 1997's Gattaca...

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. »
