Kill The Irishman Trailer

10 December 2010 4:21 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

An interesting little trailer popped up online tonight over at SlashFilm. Kill The Irishman, directed by The Punisher's Jonathan Hensleigh, is an account of the real life mob war that took place between the 'La Cosa Nostra' Italian Mafia and the Irish American enforcer, Danny Greene. After watching the trailer and catching the 'true story' tag, I had to check it out on Wikipedia...and yes folks, as crazy as it all seems, this is apparently all true. I'm actually digging the trailer, personally. Loud music, explosions, gangsters, shootouts and a great cast (Ray Stevenson, Christopher Walken, Vincent D'Onofrio, Val Kilmer and Paul Sorvino!). Catch the trailer below with the poster. Kill The Irishman is set for a 2011 release in cinemas.

‘Kill the Irishman’ Trailer

10 December 2010 3:48 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Jonathan Hensleigh made a career writing films and then directed Thomas Jane in The Punisher (2004). Now he's done a feature with another Punisher actor: Ray Stevenson. Kill the Irishman adapts Rick Porrello's book To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia. It stars Mr. Stevenson and his wig as the Irishman of the title, who starts out working for the mob and then feels the mob's wrath when he strikes out on his own. Watch the trailer after the break. I can't help but think of similar period gangster movies like Donnie Brasco and American Gangster when I see this trailer. (Not so much Goodfellas, despite the mobbed-up cast.) I like Ray Stevenson quite a lot, and it's nice to see Christopher Walken taking things seriously for a minute. Take away the very out of place song from the middle of this trailer and it might »

Kill The Irishman Trailer Online

9 December 2010 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Here's a trailer for Kill the Irishman, Jonathan Hensleigh's gangster epic starring Ray Stevenson in a series of frightwigs and unflattering tracksuits. There aren't any shamrocks, there are some shenanigans, and there's a lot of boom shalock lock boom.It's the "true" story of Irish-American Danny Greene, who rose from nothing on the streets of Cleveland, Ohio to become a feared Mafia enforcer, and provoked a certain degree of internal mob controversy when he decided to abandon the Italians and go freelance. He survived a ridiculous number of assassination attempts, earning himself the moniker of "the man the mob couldn't kill". And he always retaliated, steady bustin' suckers in bunches like grapes. Or something.Jonathan Hensleigh's film has "70s throwback" written all over it, but it looks like fun, and he's assembled an impressive cast who seem to be having a good time. Alongside Stevenson we've got Vincent D'Onofrio, »

Trailer and Poster for Kill The Irishman Starring Ray Stevenson

9 December 2010 11:17 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Anchor Bay has released a trailer and poster for their new crime thriller Kill the Irishman.  The film centers on real-life Irish mobster Danny Greene (played by Ray Stevenson) who decided to stop being a loan shark for the Italian mob and go into business for himself.  Not surprisingly, the mafia didn’t take too kindly to that career change and they tried to blow him up.  A lot.  There are about 14 explosions over the course of this two-and-a-half minute trailer.  However, the film does look like a nice showcase for Stevenson and Stevenson’s mustache.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster.  Kill the Irishman also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Val Kilmer, and Christopher Walken.  It opens March 11, 2011.

Lifechangers: Mira and Dad Paul Sorvino on Diabetes

30 November 2010 10:20 AM, PST | Extra | See recent Extra news »

Actress Mira Sorvino and her father, "Goodfellas" actor Paul Sorvino, visited "Extra" Lifechanger Dr. Drew Pinksy at The Grove to talk about a new campaign to bring awareness to diabetes.

Paul was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes but didn't know how to control it. "I would have a piece of pie and say, 'I'll take six pills, that will be fine,'" he explained. Now, with Mira's help, he's on a better diet and exercise plan. »

Sorvino Helps Diabetic Dad

26 November 2010 8:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Paul Sorvino has his Oscar-winning daughter Mira to thank for keeping his diabetes under control - she helps to cook his meals.

The Goodfellas star was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2006, and he quickly adapted his traditional Italian diet to include low-sugar, low-carbohydrate food.

And after witnessing her father suffer a terrifying hyperglycaemic attack, Mira decided to help him manage the condition by lending a hand in the kitchen.

She says, "After witnessing an episode of extremely high blood sugar and feeling like I didn't know what to do, I quickly realised I needed to learn as much as possible about diabetes and what I could do to support him."

Her father adds, "Living with diabetes, I know how important it is to have a support system in place. As part of our Italian family heritage, we love cooking meals together and Mira joins me in preparing low-carbohydrate pasta and salads full of diabetes-friendly ingredients, such as fresh vegetables and lean meats." »

Repo! The Genetic Opera and A Constant Tempo: A Movie Review

23 November 2010 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

by Ed Sum

Director: Darren Lynn Bousman.

Writer: Darren Smith (screenplay) and Terrance Zdunich.

Rating: 3.5/5.

From the director of the Saw movie saga comes an imaginative tale of splatter-punk. Originally a stage play, the film adaptation of Repo! The Genetic Opera takes viewers onto a roller-coaster ride in what is simply one huge music video. Forget about the 2010 reworking of the tale in Repo Men. Here, one can delve into a film with a darker edge, set in a post-apocalyptic future.

In the year 2056, an epidemic is killing people and organ transplants can stop this disease for a price. A mega-corporation, GeneCo, emerges as an organization that mortgages out body parts for those people intent on living. But when a client misses a payment or can't pay the bills, the Repoman will come to claim what is owed. Nobody knows who this person is, but Rotti Largo (Paul Sorvino) does. »

[DVD Review] Romeo + Juliet

7 November 2010 10:23 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Made for a relatively low budget, Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, cheekily titled Romeo + Juliet for whatever reason, became an international box office and cultural hit. I remember when this movie took the kids I knew by storm. Most probably didn't quite grasp the language, but they definitely understood the (admittedly simplistic) emotions behind it, which is as successful as you can hope to achieve with a Shakespeare adaptation.

There've been many modern takes on Shakespeare's classics. When they fail to work, it's often because they try to force the original premise into a context that might fit logically, but not emotionally. What makes Romeo + Juliet an easy transplant is that the source is ready-made for an MTV-style makeover.

Shakespeare wrote a play about the romantic foolishness of impulsive teenage love and envisioned it as a bunch of passionate Italians fighting and bedding and declaring ridiculous orations of great love. »

All-action Chaneac Reveals Transformers 4 Interest

5 November 2010 6:26 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

French star Delphine Chaneac is set for an all-action role in the fourth Transformers film, if online gossip is to be believed.

The Splice star is rumoured to be in the running to play a villain in the sequel and she couldn't be happier.

She tells WENN, "I want to do more physical movies, like the X-Men or Transformers... and somebody sent me an email a few days ago, saying you're going to be in Transformers 4.

"That's great because I want to work more with the body, because, in France, there aren't a lot of action films... and I don't want to be the prettiest girl in the film, or anything like that. I'd like to challenge myself.

"I think my look and my physical abilities could fit in those kind of projects."

Chaneac is currently working alongside former Terminator star Edward Furlong, James Caan and Paul Sorvino in a real-life tale about the Jewish Mafia, entitled For The Love of Money.

But she admits her passions lie with vampire movies and James Bond: "I am as well a big fan of vampire movies and it would be fantastic to play a James Bond Girl. It would be more of an honour than an actual goal." »

Martin Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi to Create Goodfellas TV Series

27 October 2010 10:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sharpen your knives, load your guns, and get your fuckin’ shinebox because more Goodfellas is on the way. While rumors regarding a television series based on the mobster classic have circulated the internet for a while now, nothing was ever set in stone. But now, Digital Spy reports the TV series has not only been confirmed, but that it is in the early planning stages, and that Goodfellas’ director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi are on board.

Said Pileggi: “I want to do it, Marty wants to do it, Warner Bros wants to do it. Of course, you can’t pick up from Goodfellas, since we murdered everybody, or rather, everybody was murdered! There’s nobody left. But I think we’re going to figure out a way to do the early years – sort of a prequel.” Hit the jump for more.

A prequel to Scorsese’s mobster classic is certainly intriguing, »

Comedy Central Orders Pilot for Waiting… TV Series; NBC Picks Up Life Is Good and Tommy’S Little Girl from Jamie Foxx

25 October 2010 2:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in May, Comedy Central’s future slate revealed script development for a TV series adaptation of the 2005 indie comedy Waiting… starring Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris and Justin Long. The Office Space in a chain restaurant mentality of the show seemed perfect for a half-hour comedy series, and now Deadline reports Comedy Central has finally greenlit a pilot for the potential series. Much like the film, the proposed series will follow the young and not so young employees at Shenaniganz restaurant as they gossip, make fun of customers, taint food and avert boredom and adulthood with their antics.  Each of the employees can’t seem to keep their personal life away from work as they grapple with sex, booze, and whether they are temporary or permanent fixtures in the restaurant world. No cast has been announced yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
