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, »
Despite the fact that seeing a cast containing Brad Pitt, Michael Caine, Charlize Theron and Kevin Spacey would usually have you immediately buying tickets, big names do not necessarily a good movie make. But it’s a natural reaction to get tempted into the cinema by a good cast list; after all the script, director and plot are all important, but none are as simple a sale to audiences as putting in a few famous actors.
That said, how many times have your expectations been raised by a star-studded cast only for the film to be another turkey?
Sadly, it’s an unfortunate fact of Hollywood that sometimes studios throw money at big names to try and guarantee big bucks, even if it’s to the products detriment artistically. Even worse, there are plenty of examples of a studio choosing the most recognisable talent over the best person for the role. »

Paolo Sorrentino's follow-up to Oscar-winning The Great Beauty got a killer standing ovation in competition in Cannes and was quickly snapped up by Fox Searchlight, which has set a December 4 U.S. bow. The trailer for Youth that dropped today shows what all that French fuss was about: The pic follows Fred (Michael Caine) and Mick (Harvey Keitel) as they vacation in a luxury Swiss Alps lodge. Fred is a retired composer who has no plans to resume his career despite the… »
Michael Caine's upcoming slate includes Vin Diesel's The Last Witch Hunter and the sequel to Now You See Me, but while he's keeping busy in elder-statesman roles, it looked as if 2009's Harry Brown was his final film as the lead. Happily that turned out not to be the case, since he couldn't resist Paolo Sorrentino's Youth. You can get a taste of the results in this just-released new trailer."I've retired about 30 times," Caine told Empire recently. "I always retire and then someone comes along with an offer you can't refuse. I wasn't going to play any more leading roles. I don't like it because you've got to get up early in the morning for eight weeks. But I just had to do Youth. It was wonderful." Sorrentino (This Must Be The Place, The Great Beauty) wrote and directed the film, which involves Caine's retired orchestra »
Paolo Sorrentino’s latest film “Youth” is finally taking taking the ace out of its sleeve: Jane Fonda in full campy glory. The film tells of artists and best friends Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel in their twilight years, visiting a health resort in hills of Switzerland. While youngsters Rachel Weisz and Paul Dano help illicit tales of the loves and regrets of the two men — Fonda is a showstopper rocking a loud blond wig, costume jewelry and animal prints in the movie’s official trailer, released Wednesday..

The movie previously screened in May at the Cannes Film Festival where it received a standing ovation. Jay Weissberg (Variety) wrote, “Shot in English, with leads Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel bringing lifetimes of depth to their roles, the film could become Sorrentino’s biggest box office hit yet.”
From Paolo Sorrentino, the internationally renowned writer and director of Italy’s Oscar-winning foreign language film The Great Beauty, comes Youth – a poignant tale of how we each find our own passion in life.
Starring Academy Award winner Michael Caine as Fred and Academy Award nominee Harvey Keitel as Mick, Youth explores the lifelong bond between two friends vacationing in a luxury Swiss Alps lodge as they ponder retirement.

A retired music composer and conductor and a film director at the end of his career spend the summer at an elegant hotel in the trailer for Youth. “A retired orchestra conductor is on holiday with his daughter and film director best friend in the Alps when he receives an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II […]
You may have heard of Paolo Sorrrentino when The Great Beauty won the Foreign Language Oscar, but it’s no surprise that winning, or being nominated for, foreign language awards doesn’t mean people are rushing out to see a film.
If you missed it, you should make sure you check it out, and one of the best pushes for that movie might be this trailer for Youth, Sorrentino’s latest. With the Oscar win, there’s automatically a bigger marketing effort, and this one hopefully has the stars to pull in some viewers. But, the trailer will hopefully get people to both movies, because it manages a wonderful look at not only Sorrentino’s style, but the ways in which he maneuvers his films through their emotions. That’s a pretty good trick for a trailer, and if this one looks even remotely interesting to you, you’re going »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...
A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.
As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »
Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for Youth, arriving in theaters December 4, which could give us an early look at a potential Academy Award contender. Rachel Weisz, Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel lead an all-star cast in this drama, which will go up against the horror-comedy Krampus when it hits theaters at the end of this year. The story centers on Fred and Mick, two old friends on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps.
Fred (Michael Caine), a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick (Harvey Keitel), a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Fred has no plans to resume his musical career despite the urging of his loving daughter Lena (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz), Mick is intent on finishing the screenplay »
"Who were you? 'Who?' - that's what I always ask myself..." Fox Searchlight has debuted their new official Us trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, starring Michael Caine as an aging composer who retreats with his filmmaker friend, played by Harvey Keitel, to a spa in the Alps. There they encounter some interesting characters and discuss life, and youth, and beauty, and more. Rachel Weisz also stars as Caine's daughter, who also joins him on the trip. The cast includes Paul Dano, Jane Fonda and Ed Stoppard. This trailer starts out looking like a fun indie comedy, then becomes something very poetic in the second half. The best trailer yet, very moving - I can't wait to see this. "I don't owe anybody anything, I did it myself!" Enjoy it. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, from Fox Searchlight's YouTube: Fred (Caine) and Mick (Dano), two old friends, »

The two men reflect on their past, each finding that some of the most important experiences can come later in life.

There are a number of films from the 2015 Cannes Film Festival that have stuck with me over the past few months. Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" (which will hit theaters in September), Jia Zhangke's "Mountains May Depart," Gaspar Noé's "Love" and Todd Haynes' "Carol" immediately come to mind for one reason or another. The one film that I've actually been dying to see again, however, is Paolo Sorrentino's "Youth." Fox Searchlight picked up the drama before Cannes and clearly has high hopes it can make a dent during the upcoming awards season. They are leading that charge with a Best Actor campaign for Michael Caine who, no surprise, is quite superb as a retired maestro whose annual summer treat contains a number of unexpected surprises. You can watch Searchlight's first trailer for "Youth" (which is very Caine-centric) embedded at the bottom of this post. Now, just in case »
