First Look at action-thriller ‘Criminal’ starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Ryan Reynolds

5 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m starting to get the impression that Ryan Reynolds likes to get in the minds of his craft-mates…literally.

Not satisfied with ‘shedding’ Ben Kingsley in Self/Less and his delusional self in The Voices (which may help to explain his sojourn as the Green Lantern), Reynolds finds his deceased memories, secrets and skills as a CIA operative implanted into apathetically dangerous death-row inmate Jerry Stewart (Kevin Costner) in hopes that he will complete the deceased operative mission and prevent a diabolical plot.

Scripted by Double Jeopardy writers Douglas Cook and David Weisberg, the Ariel Vromen directed action-thriller with a hint of sci-fi also stars Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones.

This high-concept offering from Summit Entertainment looks promising at first glance so check the clip and poster art out for yourself and let us know what you think:

Criminal opens in UK and Us cinemas on 15th April, »

Kevin Costner Steals Ryan Reynolds’ Mind in First Trailer For ‘Criminal’

17 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In case The Change-Up and Self/less didn’t fill your quotient of Ryan Reynolds body-swapping movies, this spring brings yet another. While the Deadpool actor is mostly left out of the marketing materials for Criminal, it is his character’s mind and skills that get transplanted into that of Kevin Costner‘s character of a death row inmate.

Ahead of an April release, we now have the first trailer for the film which also features Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Alice Eve, and Gal Gadot. Coming from Ariel Vromen, who gave us The Iceman a few years back, the trailer sells a fairly run-of-the-mill high-concept actioner, but with a strong cast, hopefully it’ll be one that’s worthwhile. Check out the trailer and poster below.

Criminal opens on April 15th, 2016.

Watch: First Trailer for Ariel Vromen's Mind Implant Thriller 'Criminal'

18 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The Mission Is In The Memories. Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for an intriguing high-concept sci-fi film called Criminal, that is indeed about a couple of criminals, but also so much more. Ryan Reynolds plays a deceased CIA operative whose memories and thoughts are implanted into the mind of a criminal, played by Kevin Costner, who is recruited by the head of the CIA, played by Gary Oldman, to finish a mission. The cast includes Gal Gadot, Alice Eve, Scott Adkins, Antje Traue, Michael Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones as the Doc. This is the kind of movie that makes you legitimately wonder if the people who made it have any idea how technology works, or if they just like big ideas that sell and the way it all sounds. Oh well. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ariel Vromen's Criminal, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: The story of »

Criminal is an incoming thriller starring Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones and Gal Gadot. Here's the trailer.

Ryan Reynolds, right now, is riding high off the back of Deadpool, which is playing in cinemas from this weekend. Kevin Costner, meanwhile, is someone we have devoted many thousands of words of this site too, and will continue to do so.

They lead the cast of upcoming thriller Criminal, which also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Oldman and Gal Gadot. That’s comfortably one of our favourite casting line ups of the year.

The movie arrives in cinemas in April, and we’ve got the first trailer and a synopsis right here. So we’d best get to work…

And here's that synopsis...

Ryan Reynolds gets inside of Kevin Costner's head in first trailer for Criminal

11 February 2016 12:55 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ryan Reynolds has a thing for switching bodies.

Criminal marks the third film where he plays a character who for one reason or another is implanted into someone else's body. First there was The Change Up, then last year's Self/Less, and now, in what looks to be the best of the bunch, there's Criminal.

This time around, it's Reynolds character who embodies Kevin Costner's "criminal". A former CIA agent who has been killed, his mind is planted into the body of a dangerous convict, in hopes of revealing information from before his untimely death.

The film boasts an impressive cast. Along with Reynolds and Costner, there's Gary OldmanTommy Lee Jones, and our future Wonder WomanGal Gadot. Though the plot is familiar, Criminal looks like it could take it to new lengths. With this many great actors in one film, and an impressive first trailer, we have »

Wonder Woman Is Deadpool's Widow in First 'Criminal' Trailer

11 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The main star of "Criminal" seems to be Kevin Costner as a convict with "no impulse control" and "a totally lack of empathy" for anyone, but the first trailer also shows what the daughter of Deadpool and Wonder Woman might look like. 'Cause you know you were wondering.

Costner's criminal gets an implant in his head containing the memories and skills of a dead CIA intelligence officer. That dead agent is played by Ryan Reynolds. The dead agent's wife is played by Gal Gadot. Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones appear in the trailer as government bigshots of some kind -- bad guys? -- who want the information that is now in Costner's head.

The trailer shows us that the events of the film give Costner's criminal the sense of empathy he previously lacked, including a connection to the widow and daughter left behind.

We bet you can’t watch Ewan McGregor’s tribute to David Bowie without melting

9 February 2016 2:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Didn’t get enough “Heroes” in Moulin Rouge!? Ewan McGregor only sang a few bars of the David Bowie song for a medley in the Baz Luhrmann’s sparkling, stylish musical. But he belted out the whole song in a for-charity tribute to the late singer at Los Angeles venue the Roxy on Monday night. A video of his performance has hit the web, and it’s clear he’s got just as glorious a set of pipes as he did when Moulin Rouge! was made 15 years ago (and when he sang for the Bowie- and Iggy Pop-inspired Velvet Goldmine). Watch McGregor’s performance of “Heroes” below. If this results in you in a puddle on the floor, though, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Also at the tribute: Gary Oldman singing “The Man Who Sold the World” and Seal, who performed “Bring Me the Disco King »

David Bowie fans gathered together last night for a tribute celebrating the late music veteran at a benefit concert duteously dubbed, "Celebrating David Bowie" at L.A.'s '70s-born, and now tenably certified rock venue, The Roxy.  Seal, Ewan McGregor, Gary Oldman, and Spiders From Mars keyboardist Mike Garson united for the tribute in a series of performances that paid earnest and effusive homage to the late musician. The impeccably—and diversely—talented bunch brought a collection of performances that impressed without distracting from the evening's intent: to remember Bowie's iconic stature as one of the industry's leading performers and pop culture's »

Get a Little Emotional Listening to Ewan McGregor Performing David Bowie’s ‘Heroes.’ It’s Okay.

9 February 2016 9:27 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ewan McGregor sang David Bowie’s “Heroes” last night at the Roxy's Celebrating David Bowie tribute concert in Hollywood, alongside other performers, like Seal and Gary Oldman. As you might know based on your age and/or love of musical movies, McGregor sang “Heroes” as part of the "Elephant Love Medley" in Moulin Rouge. But don’t worry! You don’t have to publicly identify yourself as a former or current Moulin Rouge fan here. This is a safe space, designated solely for getting misty over the excellence of David Bowie. And that is a fact. »

Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried join comedy The Clapper

7 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Ed Helms (Vacation) and Amanda Seyfried (Ted 2) have signed on to appear in The Clapper, which is being directed by Dito Montiel (Empire State) from his own book of the same name.

The site reports that the film revolves around ” professional clapper for infomercials who gets plucked by a late night talk show host to be on his TV show. The notoriety that his 15 minutes of fame brings ends up costing him his job as well as a budding relationship with a girl who works at a gas station. The project is a testament to how easily fame is achieved in today’s reality-program driven society and how it can complicate ordinary people’s lives.”

Montiel’s latest film, the post-apocalyptic thriller Man Down starring Kate Mara, Jai Courtney, Shia Labeouf and Gary Oldman, premiered at the Venice Film Festival back in September, but is currently without a release date. »

Gary Oldman Takes The Plunge For Submarine Drama Hunter Killer

5 February 2016 9:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Emerging from the inky blackness of development hell, submarine thriller Hunter Killer appears to be back on track over at Millennium Films, with Gary Oldman joining the cast in a key role.

Word comes by way of Screen Daily, revealing that the Oscar-nominated actor will star opposite fellow Briton Gerard Butler in the studio’s long-gestating feature, which is set to be offered to buyers at next week’s Berlin Film Festival. Adapted from George Wallace and Don Keith’s acclaimed novel Firing Point, Hunter Killer centers on a rogue Russian general who, upon kidnapping the country’s president, looks to spark a global conflict on the scale of the Cold War.

Despite developing a tendency of portraying Russians on screen (see Air Force One and Child 44), Oldman has boarded the thriller to oversee the efforts of a Navy Seal unit – Gerard Butler’s Joe Glass included – to scupper those aforementioned terrorist plans. »
