Jackie Chan Vs. Pierce Brosnan in The Foreigner Trailer

13 September 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Stx Entertainment has released a new trailer and photos from The Foreigner, the latest film from the ageless big screen icon Jackie Chan. This action-packed thrill ride is very much in the same vein as the action classic Taken, with Jackie Chan playing a father with a very "special set of skills" that he uses to go after a group of terrorists. This timely action thriller also stars Pierce Brosnan and comes from the director of Casino Royale.

The Foreigner tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love -- his teenage daughter -- is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may »

Russell Simmons, We Didn't Honor Hitler So Why Honor Robert E. Lee?

20 August 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_hh81f8rr"]] Russell Simmons is clear as a bell ... we wouldn't think about erecting a statue honoring Adolf Hitler, so what's the argument for doing the same with Robert E. Lee? We got Russell out Saturday at Tao in Hollywood and didn't hesitate ... honoring people with bad intentions is simply wrong. Russell was into honoring someone ... Dick Gregory, who passed Saturday. Russell says Gregory inspired Def Comedy Jam which helped launch the careers of a number of African American comedians, »

The Hitman’S Bodyguard – Review

17 August 2017 11:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Ah, it’s almost that quiet (well quieter) time at the old multiplex, as Summer mayhem winds down and the end-of-the-year award bait anxiously awaits. You know… what with Labor Day here in just a couple of weeks. But what’s that rumbling in the distance? Why, it’s another car-smashin’ action flick, charging in with guns ablazin’! Is it another comics-based thriller, or the exciting newest installment of a spy franchise? No, but it’s pretty familiar, as it’s another adrenalin-fueled fable concerning two really different guys, who’ve got to team up to start a huge threat. And, in the tradition of Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours and Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the Rush Hour trilogy (oops, maybe another’s on the way), these fellas, besides their personalities, are, well, of different ethnicities. Perhaps this film will start a dialogue and help this divided nation. »

Josh Brolin is almost unrecognisable in first images of Cable in Deadpool 2

8 August 2017 2:52 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Ryan Reynolds took it upon himself yesterday to reveal the first two images of Josh Brolin as Cable directly from the set of Deadpool 2 which is currently in production in Vancouver.

Taking to social media, Reynolds, in true Reynolds fashion, posted one of the images stating “We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future”.

We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future. #PremiumCABLE #JoshBrolin pic.twitter.com/JV3yBIIPQH

Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) August 7, 2017

As we can see from the images, Brolin has gone through an amazing, almost unrecognisable transformation to play Cable. After spending months in the gym working out, Brolin is looking ripped and extremely menacing for his role as Deadpool’s nemesis, he certainly gives Reynolds ever so slight six pack a run for his money.

Deadpool Creator Compares Deadpool 2 To A Buddy Cop Film

31 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

What will keep Deadpool 2 from simply becoming another repetitive sequel that leeches off the original film's success? The likely answer is Cable, also known as Nathan Summers, the time traveling mutant played by Josh Brolin in the upcoming second chapter. Done lazily and without thought, Cable could end up being a flat Colossus wannabe, but with the right handling of the character, his stark contrast to the witty and talkative Deadpool makes him the perfect foil, and partner. Cable's serious, Deadpool's sweet, making for a very "buddy cop" sounding situation. At least, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld thinks so.

Leonardo DiCaprio, David Beckham, Will Smith Steal the Show at Cannes amfAR Gala

26 May 2017 6:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leo and David! Leo and David! Everybody was trying to get near this year’s power duo at the Cannes amfAR gala. At around 8 p.m., at the Hotel du Cap in Antibes, the world’s biggest movie star was chatting with the famous soccer player, as bodyguards flicked away photographers. Leonardo DiCaprio looked animated, using his fingers to count down talking points, as David Beckham nodded politely.

Then it was time to go inside the dinner, held in a massive tent with a 1920s Hollywood vibe and dancing showgirls. As Beckham strode through the grass, a fan managed to sneak by him to ask for a selfie. Beckham hesitated, before reluctantly agreeing.

“David, you should charge money for that picture, man,” one of his handlers cracked. “$10,000 a shot!”

Ice Cube confirms Last Friday is in the works

21 May 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Ice Cube has revealed that development is underway on a fourth instalment of the Friday series, and while it doesn’t have a release date yet, there is a title:

““We’re working on one right now,” said the rapper turned actor and writer. “We’re gonna call it Last Friday.”

Ice Cube didn’t have any other details to offer, but one would assume that he will be starring in the film and writing the screenplay, as he has done with the previous three instalments.

We’ll also presumably see the return of several franchise veterans such as John Witherspoon (Willie Jones) and Mike Epps (Day-Day), although it remains to be seen whether Chris Tucker could be tempted back to the series for the first time since the original.

The first Friday was released back in 1995, and was followed by »

12 May 2017 3:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Sylvester Stallone backed out of the fourth and final Expendables sequel back in March, the actor had a big hole in his schedule, which has now been fillled.
