20. Dead Man Walking

Directed by: Tim Robbins

Susan Sarandon earned herself an Oscar for her work in “Dead Man Walking,” a film directed by her then husband, Tim Robbins. She plays Sister Prejean, a nun who befriends a death row inmate named Matthew (Oscar nominated Sean Penn) as they confide in one another and build a convincing relationship as the days and hours tick down until his execution. Robbins intercuts the scenes with Sarandon and Penn with moments of the actual crime taking place, creating a storytelling rift that both supports and contradicts moments within the film, creating two very carefully drawn and developed characters. In addition to visiting him regularly, Prejean begins the crusade to find him a lawyer to make an appeal, doing all she can to delay his sentence being carried out. But, as she meets the families of the victims, she finds herself torn between right »

M. Night Shyamalan Thinks It's Time to Make 'Unbreakable 2'

30 January 2015 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It's been almost 15 years since the release of Unbreakable, and you'd think the window of opportunity for a sequel has long since passed. But now more than ever, writer-director M. Night Shyamalan seems to believe it's finally the perfect time to revisit superpowered security guard David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis) and his arch nemesis Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson).  Collider caught up with the filmmaker while he promoted his upcoming show Wayward Pines and took a moment to discuss the possibility of the follow-up. "Of course, the whole world makes comic book movies now," Shyamalan notes. "At the time, it was completely novel. I remember when I made it, Disney was literally like, 'Comic books?!  There’s no...

37 Movies That Share Their Name With A Michael Jackson Song

30 January 2015 4:23 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

You wouldn't know it from the film's lack of marketing, but a new movie called Black or White debuted in theaters today. Despite the presence of stars Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer, I've never seen a trailer or TV spot for the movie, which BoxOfficeMojo says is in over 1,000 theaters right now. (Apparently the film played at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and didn't receive very favorable reviews.) I don't ever plan on watching this film, but that doesn't mean that I can't come up with a tangentially-related article about it. Black or White got me thinking: what other movies share a title with a Michael Jackson song?

As far as ground rules go, there's really only one major one: the title of the movie and the song have to match exactly - if a word is possessive, I'm not making an exception. Exact matches or Gtfo. I'll embed »

M. Night Shyamalan on the Possibility of Unbreakable 2

30 January 2015 9:47 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If there’s one M. Night Shyamalan movie I would kind of be excited about, it would be a sequel to his comic book inspired film, Unbreakable. I loved that movie, and I’m surprised that we still have yet to see a sequel. During an interview with Collider, the director was asked if he ever thinks about continuing the adventures of David Dunn (Bruce Willis), who becomes an unlikely superhero when he discovers that he’s virtually indestructible. This is what he said:

“Yeah, I do sometimes. I love those characters and I love that world. Of course, the whole world makes comic book movies now. At the time, it was completely novel.”

I have to say that as much as I don’t like most of the films that Shyamalan has made over the years, he did bring us one of the first grounded, reality-based superhero movies, which »

29 January 2015 6:44 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Like most of the titles in M. Night Shyamalan.s filmography, the end of his 2000 film Unbreakable comes with an interesting twist. Not only does Bruce Willis. David Dunn finally come to terms with the fact that he is something a touch more than human, but Samuel L. Jackson's Elijah Price is revealed to be a supervillain . truly David.s opposite in every way. The way the movie let.s this turn hang in the air as the credits roll has long had fans wondering about the prospects of an Unbreakable 2 - and apparently it.s an idea that Shyamalan is still interested in as well. The Sixth Sense filmmaker is currently promoting his television series Wayward Pines - on which he serves as both producer and director . and it was while talking with Collider that he revealed that he still has thoughts about making an Unbreakable 2.

M. Night Shyamalan Touches Base With The Possibility Of Unbreakable 2

29 January 2015 1:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether you love or loathe him, before M. Night Shyamalan began dividing audiences in a way that marmite could only dream, the eclectic director released The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable within the space of two years, justifying his reputation as one of the promising up-and-comers in the industry. As two standalone science fiction movies, each was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews and in a recent interview with Collider, the filmmaker touched base on the possibility of an Unbreakable 2.

Fifteen years after the release of the original, Shyamalan revealed that he does contemplate the feasibility of a sequel to this day.

Yeah, I do sometimes. I love those characters and I love that world. Of course, the whole world makes comic book movies now. At the time, it was completely novel. I remember when I made it, Disney was literally like, “Comic books?! There’s no market for comic books!” That’s all they make now! »

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'Gryzzlbox/Save JJs'

27 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's two "Parks and Recreation" episodes coming up just as soon as James Woods follows my niece on Twitter... In part because we're getting two episodes a week, this final season sure doesn't seem like it's wasting time, does it? Leslie and Ron's personal feud ended by the fourth episode, he joined her in the fight against Gryzzyl by the end of the fifth, and the matter of the Newport land and the national park was resolved by the end of the sixth, less than halfway to go into the season. It's a pretty abrupt narrative shift from the show that took nearly six seasons to break ground on the park Leslie proposed in the first episode, but I appreciate this newfound speed for a couple of reasons. First, it helps illustrate the bigger stakes and the greater power Leslie has as a high-ranking federal official (though, »

The Gambler Review

22 January 2015 2:06 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Mark Wahlberg has described his role of gambler Jim Bennett as the most challenging role of his career (battling giant robots aside..ahem) Besides the fact that Wahlberg attended numerous college lectures to nail down professor mannerisms and style, he lost a whopping 61lbs on a diet that consisted of vegetables, liquids, cardio and probably some left over oil from the last Transformers outing. With a slightly withdrawn and gaunt looking Jim Bennett, it’s easy to see where Wahlberg put in the physical work for this role. However, his performance of a gambler who borrows money from his mother and a loan shark, in a quest for a second chance at life, while good is not exactly outstanding. At this stage of his career, Mark Wahlberg is playing more of himself than any other character, in the same way that Bruce Willis or Arnie does. However, that’s not »

Bruce Willis to star in Extraction

21 January 2015 11:33 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Bruce Willis is to star in 'Extraction'. The 'Die Hard' star has signed up to take on the lead role in the upcoming thriller directed by Steven C. Miller, Deadline reports. The 59-year-old actor will play a former CIA operative whose wife has been murdered and whose son is following in his career footsteps. His character is to be kidnapped by a terrorist group while he's working with his son on the development of a super-weapon called the Condor. Upon learning there is no plan to save his father, Harry decides to launch his own rescue operation which leads to a conspiracy that will change his life forever. The script was written by Umair Aleem and the movie - which begins shooting in Alabama next month - will be produced by Emmet/Furla/Oasis Films' Randall Emmett and George Furla and Aperture's Adam Goldworm with Tim Sullivan, Brandon Grimes and Gus Furla onboard as co-producers. »

Bruce Willis Set for Two New Action Thrillers 'Extraction' and 'Wake'

21 January 2015 9:36 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back towards the end of the summer of 2013, you may remember Bruce Willis saying that he was bored with starring in action movies again. It's happened before for the actor, and we though this might mean some more thoughtful, substantial performances from the actor. Instead, he's just churning out more of the same action thrillers we've seen time and time again, and now he's just signed on for two more. Deadline reports Willis is set to star in Extraction where he plays a former CIA operative, and a press release reveals the Die Hard franchise star will also lead Wake, from John Pogue, the director of The Quiet Ones. With Extraction, Willis no longer works for the CIA, and he just hasn't been the same since his wife was murdered (we've all been there, right?). Meanwhile, his son is set to follow in his footsteps as a young CIA operative, »

Bruce Willis Will Be Taken in Extraction

21 January 2015 8:17 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

On the heels of the theatrical and VOD debut of Vice last Friday, Bruce Willis is re-teaming with the producers of that sci-fi thriller for another movie called Extraction. This one will similarly shoot in Alabama and similarly sounds like another cheap genre flick suited for a direct-to-video release coupled by good box office overseas. According to Deadline, Willis will play a CIA agent who is kidnapped and has to be rescued by his son, who is also a CIA agent, when the government passes on mounting a mission themselves. Is it just a role-reversed remake of A Good Day to Die Hard? Should they just cast Jai Courtney as the younger spy and some foreign markets can actually retitle it A Good Day to Die Hard 2 on their DVD covers? Extraction will be directed by Steven C. Miller, helmer of the 2012 Silent Night, Deadly Night remake, and is written by someone named Umair Aleem, who »

Bruce Willis Joins Action Thriller 'Extraction'

21 January 2015 6:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bruce Willis is in talks to star in the Lionsgate action-thriller Extraction, which is being directed by Steven C. Miller (Submerged). The story centers on Bruce Willis' character, a CIA operative who is still tormented over his wife's murder. His son joins the spy agency to follow in his father's footsteps, as they both begin work on a top secret weapons project known as Condor.

The plot thickens when the father is kidnapped by a terrorist group. After learning that the CIA isn't planning a rescue mission, the son tries to save his dad on his own, which plunges him into a conspiracy that he is nowhere near ready for. Umair Aleem wrote the screenplay, with Emmett/Furla/Oasis' Randall Emmett and George Furla producing alongside Aperture's Adam Goldworm. Tim Sullivan, Brandon Grimes and Gus Furla are serving as co-producers. Efo is providing the financing along with Ingenious and Odyssey Media Releasing. »

Bruce Willis continues his descent into Nic Cage type movies with Extraction

21 January 2015 5:11 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Nicolas Cage has, unfortunately, become a joke in recent years. For every great performance he gives (Joe) there are a dozen more that are painfully bad (Left Behind, for example). It has also become apparent that former Die Hard superstar Bruce Willis is nearing that same level of bad. In the past decade, while Willis has starred in big studio fare like A Good Day To Die Hard, Red 2, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, he has had a half dozen films go direct to Redbox/On Demand.

Bruce Willis Gets Taken in CIA Thriller 'Extraction'

21 January 2015 2:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Where's Liam Neeson when you need him? Bruce Willis has joined the upcoming thriller "Extraction," but this time around, he's the one who needs saving. Willis will play a retired Secret Service man who's hard at work developing a secret weapon with his CIA operative son when he's kidnapped by terrorists - Willis, that is. When the government won't step in to help, his son goes rogue to rescues his pops himself.

"Extraction," which will begin filming in February, will be directed by Steven C. Miller, who recently directed the Santa-centric horror flick "Silent Night" in 2012. The real question is just how much screen time Willis will have in the film.

Willis already has a few more projects lined up, like John Pogue's "Wake" and an adaptation of Elmore Leonard's "Bandits." No matter what Sylvester Stallone has to stay about Bruce's work ethic, you can't deny the guy stays busy! »

Bruce Willis Signs Up For Extraction

21 January 2015 2:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember when Bruce Willis used to make interesting, original movies, like Pulp Fiction, Twelve Monkeys and The Fifth Element? An air of excitement would surround each announcement detailing which project the actor would get involved with next. It’s been some time since that excitement has been felt, however, because Willis has essentially been making the same movie, repeatedly, for years. The next product from that assembly line will be Extraction, directed by Steven C. Miller (Silent Night).

The plot focuses on a father and son duo of – wait for it – CIA agents, with Willis as the seasoned elder operative who is traumatized by the – you guessed it – murder of his wife. His less-experienced CIA operative son is working with him on the manufacture of a super-weapon known as the Condor, but is thrust into the driving seat when his father, Willis, is kidnapped by terrorists. As he realizes that »

Bruce Willis Will Star in Extraction

Bruce Willis will star in Steven C. Miller's forthcoming conspiracy thriller, Extraction, according to Deadline. The actor is going out of his comfort zone here — just kidding — by playing a former CIA operative in what definitely doesn't sound like a comedy. Willis's character works with his son, an active CIA operative, to create a super weapon, but is reportedly kidnapped by a terrorist group in the movie. Production begins February 9 in Alabama, because why not? »
