Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace And Gary Oldman Topline New Posters For Russian Thriller Child 44

26 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa proved he had an eye for the thriller genre with 2012’s Safe House, and now the director has a meaty subject matter on his lap with the upcoming adaptation, Child 44.

Based on Tom Rob Smith’s eponymous novel, the story centers around Soviet Russia circa 1953, a time when the Cold War was beginning to spread its tentacles and corruption was rife. Playing the part of Leo Demidov is Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy, a secret police agent who soon finds himself in political hot war after he refuses to denounce his wife, Rasia (Noomi Rapace).

Thereafter, the pair find themselves exiled from the country and crossing paths with Gary Oldman’s General Mikhail Nesterov, who together must uncover the government conspiracy surrounding a number of child murders in the country.

With a star-studded cast that also encompasses Joel Kinnaman, Paddy Considine, Jason Clarke, »

The script for ‘Child 44,’ which is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Tom Rob Smith, was penned by ‘Freedomland’ scribe, Richard Price.

Child 44 Releases Three New Posters Featuring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and Gary Oldman

25 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has released three new Child 44 posters. Based on the novel by Tom Rob Smith, the film takes place in 1953 Soviet Russia and stars Tom Hardy as Leo Demidov, a secret police agent who is exiled to a provincial outpost when he refuses to denounce his wife, Rasia (Noomi Rapace). While working at the outpost, he and Raisa team up with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman), and must investigate a string of child murderers that are being covered up by the government. I’m not sure why this movie is flying so low under the radar. It’s got a great premise, the trailer looks solid, and it’s got an excellent cast. While I wasn’t a fan of director Daniel Espinosa’s previous movie, Safe House, I’ve got some hope for Child 44, and maybe it will be a nice bit of counterprogramming as we charge into blockbuster season. »

Exclusive New TV Spot For Child 44

25 March 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s Tom Hardy versus the Soviet Union circa 1953 in Child 44 – Bane versus Stalin, if you like - and it could go either way. Hardy’s Soviet police office find himself spun in a web that may have no obvious exit, bar the gulag or cemetery, as the movie’s new TV spot shows. It’s debuting here courtesy of Entertainment One.brightcove.createExperiences();Adapted from the first of a book trilogy by Tom Rob Smith, Child 44 finds Soviet police officer Leo Demidov (Hardy) investigating a serial killer who is targeting children. The twist? Stalinist Russia doesn’t recognise the existence of crime, so Demidov’s enquiries only arouse the suspicions of dangerous apparatchiks. And as he digs deeper into the case, his government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him.Noomi Rapace is playing his conflicted wife, Raisa, and Gary Oldman is the »

'Safe House' Director Heads to Warner Bros. for 'Morningstar' Sci-Fi

24 March 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Next month we'll see how Daniel Espinosa fares with his latest thriller Child 44 starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace (watch the trailer right here). But the director of Safe House is already looking ahead to his next project, and it's going to take him into the realm of sci-fi. The Wrap reports that Espinosa is in talks to be at the helm of Morningstar, a secretive sci-fi flick set up at Warner Bros. Pictures. Details are being kept under tight wraps, but the script from David Birke is said to have the potential for some world-building (which means potential franchise) and has a story in "the tradition of a Cold War thriller." That doesn't give us much to go on, but original science fiction ideas at the studio level are hard to come by, so count us intrigued for the time being. Espinosa hasn't exactly blown me »

Interview: Spring Directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson

24 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I knew I liked the directing team of Moorhead & Benson even before I talked with them. Their new movie Spring blew me away when I saw it at Fantastic Fest in Austin this past September, but when I saw writer and co-director Justin Benson sitting with a coffee mug bearing the face of my long time celebrity crush Eva Green (something he got as a gift from the director of Cockneys Vs. Zombies), I knew this was going to be a good interview. Now with a full cup of coffee in my own mug that sported a silhouette of the Frankenstein creature, Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, and I embarked on a long journey discussing monsters, love, Alan Moore, their upcoming Aleister Crowley film, and riding bikes around Cannes in $25 suits.

Daniel Espinosa Lights The Morningstar

24 March 2015 2:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He flirted with the Assassin's Creed movie for a while, but Daniel Espinosa's desire to move off real-world thrillers and into something with a bit of a sci-fi tinge has ultimately led him in a different direction. He's in talks to direct Warner Bros.' top secret Morningstar project, from a screenplay by David Birke (13 Sins).Espinosa previously made the international hit Snabba Cash, followed by his mainstream debut Safe House, with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington. Most recently he's been at work on Child 44, based on Tom Rob Smith's novel and sporting the pitch-hitting cast of Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace and Vincent Cassel. Ridley Scott is among the producers.In short, his is becoming an increasingly safe pair of hands where real-world thrillers are concerned, so something fantastical that calls for "world building" is a surprising tangent. While nothing is known about Morningstar's story, »

Die Hard, Pulp Fiction: What's your favourite Bruce Willis movie?

19 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Many happy returns to Bruce Willis, who celebrates his 60th birthday today (March 19)!

Ever since finding fame in the '80s thanks to sitcom Moonlighting and explosive action movie Die Hard, Bruce has been a regular on our screens, appearing in films great, good, not-so-good and Cop Out.

With John McClane himself celebrating the big 6-0, Digital Spy staff reminisce about their favourite Bruce Willis movies, while you can vote for your personal favourite in the poll below...

Die Hard - Morgan Jeffery (TV Editor)

There's a million reasons to love 1988's Die Hard - the colourful supporting characters like Al (Reginald VelJohnson), Ellis (Hart Bochner) and Argyle (De'voreaux White), action cinema's greatest ever villain in Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), Michael Kamen's brilliantly '80s score...

But the big reason is Bruce. Sure, New York cop John McClane was a tough guy, but what Willis brought to the part »

Let's Finish Casting Disney's Live-Action 'Beauty and the Beast'

17 March 2015 4:44 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We have a Beauty (that would be Emma Watson). We have a Beast (that’d be Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens). We also have Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.

Can we all agree that whoever is casting Disney’s upcoming live adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is absolutely Nailing it? We don’t want to step on any toes, but we have a few suggestions for the rest of the cast:

Jean Dujardin as Lumiere

Dujardin was born to play the charming French candelabra. We literally cannot think of anyone who is more perfect for this part. And it’d be a good return to U.S. cinema, after mostly French films following his Oscar win for The Artist.

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »
