Watch An Extended Clip From ‘The Equalizer’

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

I saw Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer a couple of days ago now (read my review here), and I was literally blown away by it. The film bears little resemblance to its 1980s TV series original, but it certainly brings back Denzel Washington to the forefront of kick-ass action entertainment. Brutal as hell too.

Anyway, Sony Pictures have today released a brand new, extended look clip from the movie, which clocks in at nearly 5 minutes long.

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, »

Denzel Washington Fights Back in 'Equalizer' Extended Clip

15 September 2014 7:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After serving as a black ops commando for a number of years, McCall (Denzel Washington) does not fear a group of Russian mobsters in an extended clip from The Equalizer. Justified star David Meunier is featured in this scene as gangster Slavi, who is offered a large sum of money to let a young girl go. When Slavi refuses to accept the deal, McCall springs into action, although he falls quite short of his "15 second" goal for neutralizing these treacherous bad guys.

Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua introduce the extended four-minute scene from this upcoming remake, arriving in theaters September 26.

Watch a Crazy Action-Packed 4 Minute Clip from The Equalizer

15 September 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It goes without saying that Denzel Washington kicks some major ass in Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming “The Equalizer.” But just how much ass? Well, if this new 4-minute clip is any indication, it’s quite a lot. You know what I like most about this clip, though? I like that they’re not trying to make Denzel’s character, who I guess is in his fifties, into this superhero guy who is faster than a speeding bullet and can leap tall buildings in a single bound. He’s just smarter than the guys he’s fighting, that’s all, which make sense to me. Check out the clip below, check it outers. In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young »

Idris Elba’s 10 Sexiest Roles

13 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

Idris Elba is one of the world’s hottest men. As we head to theaters to see his new movie, No Good Deed, we’re looking back on the sexiest parts he’s ever played.

Before he was chasing serial killers on Luther, Elba was one of the bad guys, first wowing us as Stringer Bell in HBO’s The Wire in 2002. He went on to other major film and TV roles, including 2013′s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor. Fighting for equality never looked so sexy.

So what other roles are among Elba’s most appealing?

Elba also made bad look good in 2007’s American Gangster alongside Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, and T.I. In the clip below, watch him describe how his swagger helped him blend in on set.

12 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

James Gandolfini‘s final film opens this weekend. Written by Dennis Lehane, The Drop, is a crime drama starring Tom Hardy and multiple pitbulls, and has been getting strong reviews after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival.

Below are eight films you can stream from the comfort of your home, office, or park bench (bearing said park has WiFi) this weekend. And why not? The weather’s probably going to be crummy anyway.

The Equalizer Review

12 September 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Antoine Fuqua.

Starring:  Denzel Washington, Marton Csokas, Chloë Grace Moretz.

Running Time:  128 Minutes.

Synopsis: McCall is a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri, he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer.

There are a few things that stick in ones mind as we look back at the great 1980s TV series that was The Equalizer. A juddering, memorable theme tune, sweeping vistas of the New York skyline, scenes of reprobates lurking on the subway/ random lifts, and a silhouetted Edward Woodward stood, »

‘No Good Deed’ is undeserving of Idris Elba and Henson

12 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

No Good Deed

Written by Aimee Lagos and Directed by Sam Miller

U.S., 2014

At times while watching No Good Deed it feels like the film is a test to see just how much of a creeper Idris Elba can be while still being popular with audiences. He plays ex-con Colin Evans, a violent man who loves nothing more than to toy with women. If at first it seems odd that Idris Elba is playing the typical B-movie criminal, it’s because he isn’t just going through the motions. The man who stole the show in Pacific Rim and recreated an icon in Mandela deserves a little more credit than that.

No Good Deed was directed by Sam Miller of BBC’s Luther and he knows how to take typical archetypes and work them around his leading man. Memorable villains like Hannibal Lector and Patrick Bateman are all too common for white actors, »

Viggo Mortensen: Career Retrospective

12 September 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With a career spanning thirty years, Viggo Mortensen is one of Hollywood’s most experienced actors. To celebrate the release of his recent film The Two Faces Of January on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD from Monday 15th September, we are taking a look at some of the roles that have made him one of the finest contemporary actors on the planet.

Crimson Tide (1995)

Though Mortensen had enjoyed several roles prior to Crimson Tide this was one of his first truly major roles. Starring alongside Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman, Mortensen, as nuclear-submarine weapons lieutenant Peter Ince, adopted the quiet restraint needed to portray an average man who finds himself in a less than average situation. Caught in the power struggle between Captain Frank Ramsey (Hackman) and Lieutenant Commander Ron Hunter (Washington), one would forgive any actor for letting the two Hollywood heavyweights overshadow him but Mortensen holds his own, delivering »

Actors Fill Toronto Lineup With Multiple Projects

11 September 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

As films make the festival circuit this fall, some of the cast and crew members are busy traveling with the movies, attending premieres and promoting their work. A number of actors visiting Toronto this year are there with multiple films, and this isn’t an uncommon occurrence.

Reese Witherspoon is promoting both Wild and The Good Lie, two roles that are far removed from her rom-com days. Both films have launched an awards discussion for the actress.

Where Al Pacino’s Manglehorn has been met with mixed reviews, The Humbling has propelled Pacino to a potential Oscar nomination.

Thanks to Still Alice, Julianne Moore could score an Oscar nomination, but she also has another film in Toronto. Maps to the Stars premiered in Cannes and scored Moore the best actress award.

Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington Saddle Up for the Magnificent Seven Remake

11 September 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It seems like that “Magnificent Seven” remake has been gestating all over Hollywood for years now, first with Tom Cruise as a potential star, then not. Now it looks like it’s Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington’s turn to take a crack at the remake. The duo is coming off “The Equalizer” remake, which is currently visiting Canadaland up north for a festival shindig. Fuqua confirms the re-teaming (which would make it the third collaboration between the duo) to Variety: Their next teaming won’t be as long in coming. Fuqua confirmed that he will be partnering with Washington on a remake of “The Magnificent Seven.” Fuqua said part of his attraction to working together is Washington’s aversion to the trappings of stardom. So there you have it. It looks like the “Magnificent Remake” will ride again, with Denzel in the saddle and Fuqua calling the shots behind the camera. »

A number of television series have recently been adapted for the big screen in some incarnation or the other, from 2005′s Starsky & Hutch to 2010′s The A-Team.
