Trailer Watch: Noomi Rapace Tries to Prevent Biological Warfare in “Unlocked”

19 July 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Unlocked

“We need you for an emergency assignment in London. We’ve got a prisoner waiting,” a CIA analyst tells expert interrogator Alice Racine (Noomi Rapace) over the phone. “I’m already on it,” a confused Alice replies. “What the hell are you talking about? We haven’t informed London station,” the analyst says. Alice’s face falls in horror — she’s been tricked into giving information to a terrorist cell.

There is the threat of a biological attack in the action flick “Unlocked,” but an unwitting Alice was brought in to interrogate a patsy and accidentally helped terrorists penetrate the CIA and the UK’s Mi-5. Suffice to say, this doesn’t make her very popular with her superior (John Malkovich), her mentor (Michael Douglas), or Mi-5 boss Emily Knowles (Toni Collette).

“I’m thinking I’m the only friend you got,” Mi-5 asset Jack Alcott (Orlando Bloom) tells Alice. And in true buddy cop movie fashion, they don’t really like each other all that much. But Alice will have to learn to work with Jack if she’s ever going to stop the attack, avoid biological warfare, and earn back the CIA’s trust.

Best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” films, Rapace’s credits also include “Prometheus,” “Rupture,” and “Passion.” You can catch her next in “What Happened to Monday?” a sci-fi dystopian thriller in which she plays septuplets. The film will premiere on Netflix sometime in August.

If you’re interested in “Unlocked,” you might want to check out the Charlize Theron vehicle “Atomic Blonde,” out July 28. Also a female-led action film, it sees protagonist Lorraine Broughton working against the clock to find out who is targeting and killing her colleagues in the Mi-6.

Directed by Michael Apted (“Enough,” the “7 Up” documentary series), “Unlocked” hits theaters September 1.

"What's your status?" "In danger, someone is hunting me." Lionsgate has unveiled a brand new official Us trailer for the CIA action thriller titled Unlocked, from veteran English director Michael Apted (the same filmmaker behind the "Up" documentary series). We featured the original UK trailer for this earlier in the year.

Orlando Bloom also co-stars as an MI5 agent she works with to help figure out what's going on. The cast includes Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, Akshay Kumar, and John Malkovich. I like how mysterious and tricky the plot seems, I'm very intrigued to find out what's up. Here's the new official Us trailer (+ poster) for Michael Apted's Unlocked, direct from YouTube: Noomi Rapace stars as a CIA operative who finds her mission compromised. »

Glenne Headly Remembered: ‘She Was a Total Perfectionist’

9 June 2017 2:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Glenne Headly was a very serious actress with a gift for comedy. That’s how Anna D. Shapiro, artistic director of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Co., remembered the theater’s longtime ensemble member, who died Friday at the age of 62.

“Glenne was a very, very serious actor and one of the hardest-working people I’ve ever worked with,” Shapiro told Variety. “She was a total perfectionist and she was obsessed with the science of acting comedy…She would focus on what it was that made something true, and by that uncovering why it was funny.”

Headly joined the famed Chicago theater company in 1979, five years after it was founded by Gary Sinise, Terry Kinney and Jeff Perry. Even after Headly moved to the West Coast to work in movies and TV, she maintained a regular presence in Steppenwolf productions through 2005.

'Con Air': THR's 1997 Review

6 June 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On June 6, 1997, Buena Vista unveiled the R-rated Nicolas Cage actioner Con Air in theaters, where it would become a summer hit. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

A dirty dozen wad of cons hijack a prison transport plane in Con Air, a high-flying actioner fueled by equal parts schmaltz and high explosives that is likely to pack high-altitude grosses for Buena Vista among younger viewers and action fans. 

Starring Nicolas Cage and John Malkovich as respective white hat and black hat, Con Air carries a first-class load of hardened con players — Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, M.C. Gainey, Danny »

Muscles, mullets and Malkovich: has Con Air got even weirder with age?

6 June 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

When Hollywood strapped Nicolas Cage, John Malkovich and a host of bad guys into a plane and crashed it on Vegas, what was the result? An action hit that was half prison flick, half rock video – and is, 20 years on, still dangerous

A ridiculous movie when it was released in June 1997, Nicolas Cage’s bumpy flight Con Air only seems more absurd 20 years later. The debut of UK director Simon West, it is a thundering action blowout so loud, haywire and sentimental that – in perhaps the ultimate backhanded compliment – it is often misidentified as a Michael Bay movie. Certainly it feels like a natural bridge between two of Bay’s pre-Transformers hits: 1996’s The Rock, where Cage first seemed to get a real taste for being an action star, and 1998’s Armageddon, another high-concept blockbuster hip to the benefits of recruiting an overqualified ensemble. All three movies bear the glossy, »
