Adding Possible 2016 Oscar Contenders in 'Trumbo', 'Splash', 'Grind' and 'Face'

27 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know, I know... it's early in the year and the Oscars just ended and Oh my God what are you doingc Yet, the wheels keep turning and I like to be ahead of the game rather than playing catch up at the end of the year so I'm trying to make sure the database is locked and loaded for Oscar 2016 and I just got done adding a few contenders, contenders such as... Luca Guadagnino's A Bigger Splash, which Fox Searchlight just acquired for distribution starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson and Aurore Clement. The pic centers on a high profile couple, a famous rock star and a filmmaker (Schoenaerts and Swinton), vacationing and recovering on the idyllic sun-drenched and remote Italian island of Pantelleria are disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter (Fiennes and Johnson) - creating a whirlwind of jealousy, »

The Gunman: first look at new poster

27 February 2015 2:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Penn stars in The Gunman, from the director of the good Taken movie. Here's an exclusive look at the new poster...

We're looking forward to this one. Sean Penn is taking the lead in a new movie from the director of the original - and best - Taken movie. That'd be the first one, of course, and the director concerned is Pierre Morel.

The movie is called The Gunman, and it stars Penn as a former Special Forces soldier and military contractor, who is trying to clear his name. Idris Elba, Javier Bardem, Ray Winstone and Mark Rylance co-star in the film, which arrives in UK cinemas on March 20th 2015.

And we've got our paws on the new poster for the film. It's exclusive too, although given this is the internet, it will not be exclusive for very long. But we'll enjoy our moment in the sun.

Over to Mr Penn, »

One Shot Changes Everything for Sean Penn in The Gunman

The Gunman is an upcoming action thriller from the director of Taken, Pierre Morel, starring Sean Penn and Javier Bardem. This is the latest Us trailer for the film. As much as the last two Taken films have sucked, the first one is still pretty decent if not a bit dated. What I’m trying to […]

New Trailer For The Gunman Loads Up

24 February 2015 2:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Still not satisfied with his fill of one-man army action films, Taken director Pierre Morel is loading what could be a brand new franchise led by Sean Penn.

Rarely stepping into such dangerous territory, the Academy Award winning actor looks to be handling it just fine as he’s running around, shooting in all directions and maybe even making Bryan Mills to shiver in his steel-toed boots in The Gunman.

Based on the book of the same name, The Gunman sees Penn as an ex-special ops fella, Jim Terrier, who is trying to live the quiet life but unable to shake the horrors of his past. In a quest for redemption, Terrier tries to unveil the errors of one particular mission leading to all those involved to set their sights on our hero. Naturally being the henchman-dispatching badass that he is, Terrier won’t go down without a fight, and »

If You Love This Year's Oscar Winners, Watch These Four Similar Nominees Next

23 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's only one rule as far as the kinds of performance that get nominated for Oscars go: Someone has already been nominated for a role just like it. While it was thrilling to watch Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette, and Jk Simmons pick up expected Oscars for their work this year, it cannot be denied that many of their roles have obvious Oscar forebears. Here are four performances you should watch next if you loved "Still Alice," "The Theory of Everything," "Boyhood," and "Whiplash."  If you liked Julianne Moore in "Still Alice," watch Bette Davis in "Dark Victory" Julianne Moore copes with the inevitability of a devastating condition in "Still Alice," and her decline is both grim and undeniably cinematic. Her emotional and physical transformations serve as the movie's entire plot, and her family's shifting response to her progressing Alzheimer's is just as compelling. In Oscar history, we actually »

Latest Trailer For The Gunman

23 February 2015 12:42 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There have already been a couple of trailers for Sean Penn’s swerve into Liam-Neeson-in-Taken-style action thrillers with The Gunman, courtesy of the franchise’s own Pierre Morel. Here comes the third example ahead of the movie’s arrival in March.Penn plays Jim Terrier, a former special forces-type still haunted by the things he did when he was on active duty. And one particular mission is itching at his conscience, a job that was supposed to help people, but ended up more in tragedy than triumph.So when he decides to find out what really happened, he becomes the target of his former fellow shooters and bosses, with the likes of Mark Rylance, Idris Elba and Javier Bardem clouding the picture with different degrees of sinisterness. Ray Winstone, his old mucker, and his girlfriend Jasmine Trinca are probably going to regret getting involved.With a script by »

Sean Penn Is Trigger Happy In New Trailer For The Gunman

23 February 2015 12:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following on from Sean Penn’s frankly bizarre Oscars comments last night, Open Road Films has dropped a new trailer for his upcoming action thriller, The Gunman. Was the decision to unleash the preview to perhaps capitalize on the actor’s oddball antics, or simply because it opens in theaters next month? Whatever the reason, an exciting new preview is now online for your viewing pleasure.

As previous teasers have pointed out – the film is directed by Taken‘s Pierre Morel. That admission appears to serve as a badge of merit, to prove that the director’s latest venture will be equally as badass. And by the looks of things, that statement is entirely accurate. Running at just over a minute, it’s a fast-paced tease with a booming score and plenty of explosions.

Starring Penn as James Terrier, a former military specialist plagued by Ptsd, the movie chronicles his »

Watch: Sean Penn Returns From The Oscars With A New Trailer For 'The Gunman'

23 February 2015 10:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a night filled with oddball decisions, we're not sure who decided to lug out a comatose Sean Penn to close off the Oscars with a misjudged green card joke, coupled with an attitude that he'd rather be anywhere else, but Open Road is hoping to get some post-awards show leverage. They've just dropped a new trailer for Penn's next flick "The Gunman." So let's take a look, shall we? Co-starring heavyweights Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and Ray Winstone, but don't get too excited. This is from the director of "Taken," and tells a story worthy of Liam Neeson, involving an operative who is drawn back into a dangerous game because of something or other yadda yadda yadda growl grunt explosion. You know the drill. Frankly, I woulda figured this was beneath Penn's paygrade, but I guess not. "The Gunman" unloads on March 20th. Watch below. »

Oscars 2015: Best Director Winner Is Alejandro González Iñárritu

22 February 2015 3:43 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The winner of the Oscar for Best Director is Alejandro González Iñárritu for "Birdman."

This year, five filmmakers competed for the honor of Best Director at the 2015 Oscars: Wes Anderson for "The Grand Budapest Hotel," Richard Linklater for "Boyhood," Morten Tyldum for "The Imitation Game," Bennett Miller for "Foxcatcher," and Alejandro González Iñárritu for "Birdman."

Pundits have narrowed the race down to "Birdman" and "Boyhood," with the possibility of the two films splitting the top awards for Best Picture and Best Director. The dust has settled and the winner of the Oscar for Best Director is... Alejandro González Iñárritu for "Birdman."

The Mexico-born Iñárritu broke out onto the international scene with the heavy "21 Grams" (2003), before filming "Babel" (2006) and the Javier Bardem-starring "Biutiful" (2010). "Birdman" has been praised for its standout performances all around, earning both Michael Keaton and Edward Norton acting nominations, but the film's most impressive feat is its technically innovative directing. »
