Manhunt movies have taken a shift over the years. Gone are the days of prohibition gangster heroism, liberating the common folk from the great depression with free flowing liquor. Times have changed and as Patriots Day shows us, heroes come in many forms and are often right under our noses.
Patriots Day exposes the stories of the everyday heroes involved in the manhunt for the Tsarnaev brothers following the devastating Boston Marathon attack in 2013. To celebrate the release of Peter Berg’s latest ‘based on true events’ film we’ve pulled together a list of the best manhunt movies currently at large.
The exhausting hunt for Osama bin Laden was something the world was certainly aware of, but the cloak and dagger operation kept things under wraps until the evening of 1st May 2011 when in a seemingly sudden move, at least to the general population, bin Laden »

It's time to hit the high seas once again with Captain Jack Sparrow! The elusive pirate returns this summer in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. To celebrate, Disney has release three new posters which show off the main cast, both old and new, including Johnny Depp front and center along with Kaya Scodelario and Benton Thwaites.

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The rip-roaring story finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea, notably Jack.

After a swashbuckling new promo for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales landed online during the Super Bowl, it seems that Disney is ready to step up the marketing campaign for the next film in their action/adventure franchise. If we’re being completely honest, this is one property that’s far past its heyday, but that hasn’t stopped the studio from churning out sequel after sequel and now, as we get ready to welcome the fifth entry, one’s got to wonder: did anyone even ask for another outing for Jack Sparrow?
In Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg’s upcoming flick, Depp’s character will find himself “between the crosshairs of Captain Salazer, a ghastly pirate who breaks free from the Devil’s Triangle – a sort of supernatural prison on the high seas. With an undead army in tow, Javier Bardem’s ruthless and downright »

The deal is understood to be in the region of $10m, making it one of the biggest deals of the Efm.
The deal, understood to be in the region of $10m, sees Hishow take all Chinese rights to the two titles.
Previous Nu Image/Millennium Films titles such as The Mechanic, The Expendables franchise and London Has Fallen have all been decent hits at the China box office. The second and third installments in the Expendables series were co-financed by China’s Le Vision Pictures.
Directed by Donovan Marsh from a screenplay by Peter Craig, Hunter Killer stars Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman in the story of an American submarine captain who teams with Us Navy Seals to rescue the Russian president.

China’s Hishow Entertainment has boarded a pair of upcoming movies from Nu Image/Millennium Films: “Hunter Killer” and “Escobar.” The deal is one of the biggest completed so far at the European Film Market, alongside the Berlin Film Festival, and also one of the biggest by a Chinese indie in recent months.
The Chinese distributor-investor has paid more than $10 million to buy into the two films. In both cases it is co-financing the movies and acquiring distribution rights for China. Nu Image/Millennium produces the “Expendables” series, which also has Chinese co-producers.
Directed by Donovan Marsh, “Hunter Killer” features Gerard Butler as an untested American captain who teams with Navy Seals for a mission to rescue the Russian president. Butler has significant name-recognition in China after the success there of “London Has Fallen.” Gary Oldman and Billy Bob Thornton also star in the action thriller, which was previously »

Darren Aronofsky’s new film Mother! has been scheduled for an October release date. The film, which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Pfeiffer, will be released on October 27th via Paramount Pictures as reported by Deadline Hollywood.
Mother!’s synopsis simply reads:
A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.
An Aronofsky film is always an event for film lovers, and with the cast and premise for Mother! fans of his work should be in for quite the treat. With his visual flair and off the beaten path sensibilities, this flick will likely be high on many a person’s radar come awards season. »

Following his producing work on last year’s Jackie, Darren Aronofsky will be back this fall with his Noah follow-up, the highly-anticipated mother! (yes, that’s how to actually write the title), which was just set for an October 13, 2017 release. However, before that drama starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Domhnall Gleeson, he’s produced another film and the first trailer has landed today.
Originally titled 478 (but now going by Aftermath), the thriller, directed by Elliott Lester (Nightingale) and written by Javier Gullón (Enemy), stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a man whose family dies in a plane crash. Caused by an error from an air traffic controller, Schwarzenegger is out for revenge. Rather than an old-fashioned beat-em-up that the actor might have taken on in his heyday, this looks to path some genuine emotional pathos.

The Super Bowl is always a prime platform for movie studios to launch teaser trailers for their upcoming summer blockbusters and Super Bowl Li was no different. One such teaser seen on the broadcast was for Disney’s upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth movie in the franchise. An extended look online gives us an idea of what the long-delayed return to the Caribbean has to offer and honestly, it pretty much looks like more of the same. The teaser gives us glimpses of Geoffrey Rush’s Barbossa, the returning Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner, newcomer Javier Bardem’s

The up-and-coming Brenton Thwaites has developed a taste for supernatural action.
On May 26th, the Aussie actor will be part of the star-studded crew to feature in Disney’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, a suitably swashbuckling sequel that finds Captian Jack Sparrow hunted to within an inch of his life by Salazar, an undead pirate played with great menace by the great Javier Bardem. Thwaites is attached to the part of Henry, a young man traversing the high seas in search of his missing father.
Looking further afield and Variety is reporting that Brenton Thwaites has come attached to decidedly different breed of supernatural action. It’s called Ghosts of War, and follows “five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French chateau near the end of World War II. Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this respite quickly descends into madness when they »

Jason Voorhees is renown for being a relentless, seemingly unkillable force of nature that stalks the poor souls in and around Camp Crystal Lake. But in film, bringing back the masked horror icon has proven more difficult than anyone could imagine. Not for the first time, Paramount has delayed its Friday the 13th revival, with The Wrap reporting that the long-in-development reboot and World War Z 2 have officially been removed from the studio’s slate. Neither film was given a new release date.
Bearing in mind that World War Z 2 was clutching on to June 9th, 2017 without so much as a director at the helm, news that Paramount has postponed its apocalyptic sequel isn’t all that surprising. Last we checked, David Fincher was reportedly in the mix to replace J.A. Bayona at the helm, potentially teeing up a reunion with lead star Brad Pitt, but there’s »
