Second Trailer For Wild Card Online

15 December 2014 1:16 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A French trailer for Jason Statham's latest Wild Card emerged online a few weeks ago, and it's followed now by a slightly more subdued affair for the rest of us. There are still plenty of glimpses of crunchy action, but the latest clip chooses to emphasise the dramatic elements in Vegas, with veteran screenwriter William Goldman's name given almost as much prominence as the Stath's. Nobody gets their nose broken with a backwards headbutt this time...Statham's third film with Simon West following The Expendables 2 and The Mechanic, Wild Card was originally called The Heat, and had Brian De Palma attached to direct at one point. Goldman's screenplay is based on his 1985 novel of that latter name (published in the UK as Edged Weapons), and was filmed once before to disappointing results. The 1986 version starring Burt Reynolds went through an incredible five directors, including Robert Altman, who only stayed for a day. »

Watch: First Trailer for Jason Statham’s ‘Wild Card’

13 December 2014 10:42 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“One way or another, this is my last night in Vegas,” Jason Statham says in the first U.S. trailer for “Wild Card.” It’s no holds barred from that point on.

The trailer, released by Lionsgate via iTunes Movie Trailers, promises that the upcoming action-thriller — a remake of the 1986 Burt Reynolds-starrer “Heat” — will be a wild ride.

Statham stars as a Sin City bodyguard with a gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug (Milo Ventimiglia), Statham helps her get revenge, only to find out that the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Statham continues playing blackjack to win enough cash to leave Vegas for good, but his plans go awry, as expected.

Sofia Vergara, Stanley Tucci, Jason Alexander and Anne Heche also star in the Simon West-directed crime drama.

New Trailer for Jason Statham's Action Thriller - Wild Card

12 December 2014 12:12 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got another action-packed trailer for Jason Statham's upcoming Las Vegas gambling thriller Wild Card. I'm a big fan of the films that Statham makes. Basically, every movie he stars in manages to entertain me. This latest film of his is a remake of a 1987 movie called Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds. I vaguely remember watching that movie, but this one looks like a lot of fun. It was directed by Simon West (The Mechanic and The Expendables 2), and here's the synopsis: 

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss.

Watch: Jason Statham Gambles With Danger In U.S. Trailer For 'Wild Card'

12 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hey, your bi-annual (or so) dose of Jason Statham is just around the corner! We just saw the actor in "The Expendables 3" a few months ago, and next summer he'll be back for a double whammy of "Furious 7" and "Spy." But beforehand, he's hitting the tables in "Wild Card," and  the U.S. version of the trailer has dropped today.  Based on a book by that name, a remake of a 1986 Burt Reynolds movie no one remembers, directed by Simon West (forever chasing career high "Con Air"), and featuring a pretty eclectic cast including Michael Angarano (killing it on "The Knick"), Milo Ventimiglia, Dominik García-Lorido, Anne Heche, Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander (Costanza!), Hope Davis and Stanley Tucci (the latter two deserving so much better), the movie is your basic Statham-cracks-skulls action thingy. Here's the official synopsis:  Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional. »

White Lightning – The Blu Review

7 December 2014 7:30 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“The good, they die young!”

White Lightning from 1973 is my favorite Burt Reynolds flick. Sure, Deliverance and Boogie Nights may be better movies, but White Lightning is the film that best showcases that special Burt magic. I saw it at the theater at least twice when it was new and it was a TV perennial for a while but a couple years back, I got the hankering to watch White Lightning again and was disappointed to find it had never had a DVD release. Now Kino-Lorber has rectified that with a fantastic new Blu-ray release – but with one major caveat.

White Lightning is full of booze, broads, car chases, corruption and revenge — all the things that make life worthwhile! The moonshiner has been a staple of the movies since Robert Mitchum made ‘em eat dust in Thuder Road in 1958. White Lightning was a tough country melodrama in which hard-driving Bogen County, »

Burt Reynolds' Ex-Wife Reveals Why She's Selling Everything He Gave Her

2 December 2014 5:22 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds had one of the nastiest splits in Hollywood history, and now they're both selling off some very personal items. Loni told Et why she's auctioning off all the stuff Burt gave her.

"About a year ago we were having dinner with our son," said Loni, who adopted a 26-year-old son with Burt. "Jon Voight was at the dinner with us, and we were all talking about all the stuff that you accumulate over the years. We'd been thinking about scaling back: 'What are we gonna do with all this stuff? Do you have a museum for yourself? No.' And so what are you gonna do with it? Share it."

Before their split in 1994, Burt spent millions showering Loni with gifts, including diamonds, paintings and furs, but Loni's most cherished item from the collection is her 1988 wedding dress.
