'Wolf Warrior' Clip Has Scott Adkins Fighting an Army | Exclusive

28 August 2015 6:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Action icon Scott Adkins is a one-man wrecking machine, taking out numerous enemies in our exclusive clip from Wolf Warrior. There is certainly no shortage of fighting scenes in this action-thriller, as you can see in our clip where Scott Adkins' Tom Cat uses his extensive martial arts skills, even as he's out-numbered. This new film debuts on Blu-ray and DVD September 1 from Well Go USA.

The top 25 secret agents in film

27 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

Movie Review – Nil by Mouth (1997)

25 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Nil by Mouth, 1997.

Directed by Gary Oldman.

Starring Ray WinstoneKathy Burke, Laila Morse and Charlie Creed-Miles.

Synopsis:

Depicting the lives of a dysfunctional, South London family. Aggressive Ray and junkie Billy are central roles as we see how their flaws bleed into their home lives and affect others.

There is a moment, on the tube, as Billy (Charlie Creed-Miles) begs for change. A girl, with her friends, cannot assist and as Billy continues down the train we see the roll of her eyes. In 2015, nearly 20 years after Gary Oldman’s directorial debut, Nil by Mouth, we still see this poverty and desperation on the trains. The eternal conflict as we choose not to support, against our instincts, as “we know where the money will go”. What is so effective in Oldman’s brutal film, is how we know intimately the family, friends and background of Billy. We also see his sister, »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' TV Spot Spoofs 'Star Wars'

24 August 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Kung Fu Panda 3 debuts next January, the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens will most likely still be in theaters. Today, DreamWorks Animation debuted a new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3, which pokes some fun at the Star Wars franchise, mocking the iconic villain Darth Vader. This sequel features Po, voiced by Jack Black, meeting his long-lost father Li, voiced by Bryan Cranston, but as we can see in this trailer, Li isn't in the best physical shape.

In 2016, one of the most successful animated franchises in the world returns with its biggest comedy adventure yet, Kung Fu Panda 3. When Po's long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters.

Starring: Sean Penn, Gary Oldman, Ed Harris, Robin Wright, John Turturro, R.D. Call, John C. Reilly, Burgess Meredith

Cert: 18

Running Time: 134 mins approx.

Special Features: Directing A Bunch Of Gangsters: Making State Of GraceEd Harris on State Of Grace

Sean Penn and Gary Oldman are long-established in the movie firmament, but they were once young guys who fired on all cylinders in edgier fare. An opportunity to remind viewers of this has presented itself with the release of State Of Grace on Blu-ray. A well-made crime thriller set in Hell’s Kitchen, it caught a few actors on their way up the ladder, from Ed Harris to John Turturro.

Penn plays Terry Noonan, who returns to the New York neighbourhood he grew up in looking for employment. This means rekindling his relationship with the Flannerys, an Irish family with whom he was intimately involved. Best »

And just like that new Tom Hiddleston and Sandra Bullock flicks are headed to Toronto

18 August 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins.  While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening.  Especially when it's your 40th anniversary.  Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »

Tdkr Murderer Gets Life for One of Worst Mass Shootings in U.S. History

7 August 2015 7:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

James Holmes: 'The Dark Knight Rises' shooter 'The Dark Knight Rises' mass shooter James Holmes gets life in prison James Holmes, the man who killed 12 people and injured 70 others at a July 2012 screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, in the Greater Denver area, has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole. Some had been expecting that Holmes would get the death penalty. According to Mother Jones, the jury deliberated for less than seven hours. The Aurora tragedy is one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history. As of Feb. '15, pre-trial expenses in the case against James Holmes cost state taxpayers $5.5 million. The trial itself was expected to cost several million dollars more. Following the verdict, Colorado Democratic Rep. Jovan Melton tweeted about the jury's decision and the death penalty in his state: Today's verdict proves again that the Death Penalty is arbitrary. »

4 August 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Links: Blu-rays Under $10 | Today's Deals | Release Dates | Reviews

First off, I want to apologize for this column's absence this past couple of weeks. When It Follows and Ex Machina arrived on Blu-ray back on July 14 I honestly completely spaced and forgot all about this column, which is a shame considering those are two of my top three movies of 2015 so far. That said, if you weren't aware they were released you can click on either title and purchase them now. Otherwise, here are this week's new DVD and Blu-ray releases along with a boatload of new release dates including Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Duke of Burgundy (another one of this year's best films), Mad Max: Fury Road (probably my favorite film of 2015 so far) and Furious 7.
