The 9 Best Con Artist Movies to Watch After 'Focus'

1 March 2015 8:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In Focus, Will Smith's first film since 2013, the superstar plays Nicky, a long-time conman who is planning his last big score, but ends up reuniting with a con woman who he trained years before.

The film, which performed mildly at the box office in its debut this weekend, joins the ranks of Hollywood's long love affair with the art of the con.

In celebration of this newest entry in the grifter genre, here are nine of the best conman movies ever made.

10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

Every Day I'm Hustling: Film’s 10 most memorable con artists

25 February 2015 2:17 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Big Willy’s latest big screen outing makes its way to the multiplex this month. In Focus, Smith plays the consummate con man, a smooth operator who liberates people of their wealth with the help of a Margot Robbie-shaped femme fatale.

The duo of tricksters aren’t the first con artists to grace the silver screen however. So from pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers; here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.

 

Fast Eddie Felson – The Hustler (1961)

One of the finest fraudster films to ever grace the multiplex; The Hustler stars Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson, a pool shark intent on toppling legendary cue-man Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). With its smoky sets, stunning black and white cinematography and superb performances from Newman and Gleason; the film is just as good today as it was on its release more than 50 years ago. »

Kingsman Almost Had This Badass Flashback Sequence

25 February 2015 9:05 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Action spy thriller, Kingsman: The Secret Service may very well have proven itself as having one of the more interesting box-office stories in a month overshadowed by Fifty Shades of Grey. The Bond-inspired bonanza of butchery has held rather steadily in its second week, generated some positive word of mouth and looks on track for at least $100 million in its domestic take. However, it seems that moviegoers missed out on a rather noteworthy flashback scene which utilized extensive digital effects technology to make the iconic Michael Caine look younger. Thankfully, the animation studio that worked on the film has just released some images of the scene that could have been. The images come from London-based animation studio, Jellyfish Pictures, who provided the digital effects for much of the high-paced, stylized ultraviolence on display in Kingsman. We.ve seen this kind of digital de-aging done plenty of times in film. However, »

Kevin Spacey's Celebrity Impressions Are Out-of-Control Amazing

25 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

When Kevin Spacey stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in November, he and Jimmy Fallon went back and forth with celebrity impressions, and Kevin's hilarious takes on people like Bill Clinton and Christopher Walken were more than a little impressive. For each turn, they generated a celebrity name and a Halloween-themed topic to talk about while imitating that celebrity. Jimmy, of course, had some awesome impressions up his sleeve, too, channeling stars like Michael Caine and Dr. Phil. Check out Kevin's incredible celebrity impressions, above, and then watch Christina Aguilera's spot-on Britney Spears impression before checking out even more must-see viral videos!

'Kingsman' Deleted Scene Features a Young Michael Caine

24 February 2015 1:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is well on its way to being one of 2015's early box office hits, already taking in more than $155 million worldwide in just over one week in release. We reported last week that director Matthew Vaughn is already formulating ideas for Kingsman 2, but today we have images from one Kingsman: The Secret Service deleted scene that sadly wasn't included in the theatrical cut. U.K. visual effects house Jellyfish Pictures has posted two intriguing photos from a scene involving Michael Caine's Arthur, that made him look 40 years younger through VFX. Here's an excerpt from the Jellyfish website.

"Jellyfish worked on the VFX for the movie including a complex sequence involving Michael Caine looking 40 years younger."

While no specific details were given about the scene, Kingsman: The Secret Service comic book creator Mark Millar confirmed that the scene was set in 1975, and that it was cut because director Matthew Vaughn thought, »

Young Michael Caine Featured In Kingsman: The Secret Service Deleted Scene

24 February 2015 12:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's not clear how the scene you see below would have fit into Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service, but comic book writer Mark Miller has confirmed their legitimacy as you can see below. They come from a VFX site (via Ain't It Cool) who specify that they "worked on the VFX for the movie including a complex sequence involving Michael Caine looking 40 years younger." I'd say they did a great job! The scene was obviously finished and cut from the theatrical version, so it will no doubt be included on the Blu-ray. It should be interesting to see what it involved anyway!  As great as this scene was, like the extra Hit-Girl training in KA1, Matthew felt it pulled the movie's pacing sideways & he was right. — Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) February 24, 2015 »

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" - 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

23 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From "The Good TheBad And TheUgly.Ca, Sneak Peek '...the good, the bad and the ugly..." in director Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service", starring Colin Firth:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good' :

"Based on the 'graphic' graphic novel series by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame, director Matthew Vaughn's amusing take on the spy-film genre, takes delight in adapting the story of a gentlemen-run clandestine organization that recruits a 'Marty McFly'-like son (Taron Egerton) of a top field agent killed in the line of duty...

"...into a "My Fair Lady" transformative, ultra-competitive training program...

"...while a global threat emerges from a lisping, tech criminal named 'Valentine' (Samuel L. Jackson).

"Colin Firth as 'Agent Harry Hart' aka ''Galahad', steals most of the film's thunder...

"... as a slimmer, dapper version of brolly-swinging Brit super spy 'Steed' from the 1960's "Avengers" TV series...

"...with deadly gadgets and expert fighting skills, »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Movie Review

20 February 2015 7:39 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Kingsman: The Secret Service Director: Matthew Vaughn Starring: Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine. ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ is a spy action comedy film based on the comic book ‘The Secret Service’ created by Dave Gibbon and Mark Millar. The story feels like a James Bond parody, starring members of a historical gentleman’s club who recruit an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. The screenplay by Jane Goldman and director Matthew Vaughn is stylish, cheeky, subversive and above all utterly amusing. All acts of intense violence are so  [ Read More ]

Vin Diesel Reveals New Image For The Last Witch Hunter

19 February 2015 12:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Is Vin Diesel going to have to choke a witch? Chances are pretty high with his upcoming century-spanning fantasy film, The Last Witch Hunter, that sees him as the titular hero tracking down the broom-riding bad lasses.

Though there’s nothing in terms of footage that has boiled over from the promotional pot, Mr. Diesel has been keen to keep his fans interested in a film that won’t see him growling like an engine whilst being sat behind one for a change, thanks to a brand new close up of the man himself. He’s intense, he’s thoughtful, he’s hairier than we’ve ever seen him. Look on and tremble at the untrimmed Diesel. Tremble, we say!

Directed by the crazy The Crazies director Breck Eisner, The Last Witch Hunter sounds like Highlander with added warts, as Diesel runs around modern day New York trying to stop »

'Kingsman' Director Defends Controversial Ending Joke

18 February 2015 7:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Be warned, there will be Spoilers below for Kingsman: The Secret Service if you haven't yet seen it in theaters, so read on at your own risk. The adaptation of Mark Millar's comic more than held its own against the blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey, taking second place with a healthy $35.6 million, along with high praise from the nation's critics. There is one point of contention among several fans, a sexual joke at the very end of the movie, that hasn't been received nearly as well as the movie itself. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Matthew Vaughn addressed these criticisms and defended the scene. This is your last chance to avoid spoilers, so don't read any further if you haven't seen Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Towards the very end of the film, young Eggsy (Taron Egerton) approaches Princess Tilde (Hanna Alstr&#246m), who is one of the »
