It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' is getting a sequel. The 2014 spy action comedy film directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth just topped $400 million at the global box office, and a sequel is now in the works at Fox, although there is no release date as of yet, TheWrap reports. Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton co-starred in 'Kingsman', which had an $80 million production budget. Matthew also co-wrote the film with Jane Goldman and produced the movie, which was based on the comic book 'The Secret Service', created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. It was previously reported that Colin could star in a sequel for 'Kingsman', despite having been killed off in the first film. The 54-year-old star appeared unlikely to return for the much-anticipated sequel after his on-screen character, Harry, was shot by Valentine - played by Samuel L Jackson - in the first movie. »
Since 1962, the James Bond franchise has come to define the spy genre, for good or ill. More broadly, every thriller and action film that comes out now either uses them as inspiration, or attempts to ignore or re-work the tropes that have come to be associated with the series.
Coming off the release of Kingsman: The Secret Service, and with the release of a new Bond film this year, now seems like the perfect time to take a look at a sample of the films which have been inspired by James Bond — either as homages, parodies or reactions.
The Ipcress File (1965)
Produced by James Bond producer Harry Saltzman as a more grounded alternative to the largesse of Bond, The Ipcress File is more concerned with the intricacies of real spy-work — the endless paperwork, »
According to reports, a sequel to director Matthew Vaughn's R-rated $80 million budgeted comic book feature "Kingsman: The Secret Service", has been greenlit by Fox for a big budget sequel, following the original film's $400 million dollar world-wide box office gross:
"...the world's greatest secret agent is on the most exciting case of his career.
"But will the end of the world as know it take a back seat to training his street-punk nephew to be the next 'James Bond'?
"What's the secret link between a series of kidnapped sci-fi stars, the murder of an entire town, and a dark secret from inside 'Mount Everest'?
"Under the supervision of 'Uncle Jack', the spy skills of 'Gary' blossom--
"...but when the duo learn what's behind the celebrity kidnappings. »

Vin Diesel (Pitch Black) stars in The Last Witch Hunter. A trailer for the film was released recently. The clip shows Diesel as the character Kaulder. He battles a giant tree and a coven of witches, in New York City. The film also stars Michael Caine, Elijah Wood and Rose Leslie. The full trailer is hosted here. The longer synopsis talks of a Queen Witch. She is intent on releasing a Black Death, upon the modern world. Kaulder is more intent on taking revenge, on those who have killed his loved ones. The trailer for the film looks slightly disappointing. The film focuses on modern times and settings, which are easier to shoot, rather than medieval ones. And, the clip laughably shows the central character squaring off against a far off tree. These silly scenes are repeated, in a ridiculous fashion. Though, other film fans might find something of value here. »

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process.
In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaul [Continued ...] »
With Cannes just a few weeks away, another stunning new trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's In-Competition film Youth has debuted. Starring Michael Caine and Paul Dano as old friends on vacation at a hotel in the Alps, along with Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz. This new trailer is unfortunately all in Italian (see the teaser for English) but provides us with a glimpse at some of the visual imagery, including the scene where Caine conducts on the side of a hill. I'm looking forward to this especially because Caine seems to be at his best with a moving performance. Fox Searchlight will likely end up distributing in the Us, but for now it's set to premiere in Cannes soon. This may be one everyone is talking about during the festival, so take a look. Here's the latest trailer + poster (beneath) for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, found via The Film Stage: »

There's a lot of weird stuff in the trailer for The Last Witch Hunter: Michael Caine and Elijah Wood dressed like priests, butterflies flying rampant in a laboratory, some kind of gigantic tree on fire, snow inside a library, and, of course, Vin Diesel handling a big sword. He stars as Kaulder, the last remaining witch hunter tasked with taking out an uprising of witches in modern-day New York, opposite Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie (aka Ygritte). It's hard to get a sense of the plot in this teaser, but at least there's a bunch of cool stuff to look at. It's hitting theaters on Oct. 23 - stay tuned for more trailers! »
Paolo Sorrentino is heading to Cannes with his newest film Youth (La giovinezza) and it certainly is getting its fair share of marketing along the way thanks in large part to a May 21 release date in Italy as a second trailer has arrived today. The film has yet to be picked up for domestic release, but I expect all that to change after its Cannes premiere. The film 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 (Paul Dano), 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 Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. »

While you never know which way a jury will swing, it'd be safe to say that Paolo Sorrentino is a strong contender for the Palme d'Or with his upcoming "Youth." While the film does see him work with Hollywood stars, the authorial stamp seems to be intact, and after a great first trailer captured attention, a new one has arrived and it certainly bears out a promising picture. Starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, and Paul Dano, the story follows a retired conductor holidaying in the Alps who reflects on a life-long friendship after receiving an invitation to perform for the Queen of England. And this latest look is suffused with great imagery and a lovely, palpable sense of mood. It's those qualities that made "The Great Beauty" such an arthouse hit, and it looks like Sorrentino has once again put together something special. Check out the new trailer below. »

Youth, starring Michael Caine, Rachel Weisz, Harvey Keitel and Paul Dano, has been announced as part of the competition line-up at the Cannes Film Festival, and Fox Searchlight is closing a deal to […] »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is getting a sequel.
Fox is reportedly developing the follow-up to this year's spy movie starring Colin Firth, according to TheWrap.
The movie made more than $400 million worldwide.
Director Matthew Vaughn previously suggested that he would look for ways to bring Firth back, if production for a sequel goes ahead.
"A lot of people are very upset that Colin might not be in the sequel," he said. "But I'm coming up with ideas at the moment."
Watch the cast of Kingsman: The Secret Service reveal the secrets of the spy movie below: »
The Breck Eisner-directed film centres around Kaulder (Diesel), a witch hunter cursed with immortality.
He is called upon to help protect New York City when a plot to resurrect a powerful witch queen is put into motion.
Vin Diesel was pictured with what was thought to be a fake beard on the set of the movie last year.
The actor was recently cast in Ang Lee's new war film Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk.
The Last Witch Hunter will be released in the Us on October 23. »
The star of the fifth biggest film of all time, Mr Vin Diesel, is back in cinemas later this year with his new project, The Last Witch Hunter. And whilst we don't think we're going out on a limb to say it's unlikely to do Fast & Furious 7 numbers, Lionsgate will still be hoping that it brings in a decent chunk of change.
Arriving in cinemas in October, The Last Witch Hunter is directed by Breck Eisner, who made the genuinely impressive remake of The Crazies. And it co-stars Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood and Michael Caine. Diesel takes on the role of Kaulder in the movie, who spends centuries hunting down rogue witches.
Here, then, is the first trailer for the movie....
.... and here's the first poster too.

This movie kind of looks like Vin Diesel's just decided to drive a nice car through Westeros. On the way, maybe he picks up some sharp metal objects, Michael Caine, a beard, and a badass catchphrase. And then, you know, lights his sword on fire and Vin Diesels his way back to the real world. Okay. Take my money now, Witch Hunter. »
