The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means.

London Has Fallen And Gerard Butler Is Up Against It In New Images For Action Sequel

21 January 2016 7:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bloody hell, governor! London Has Fallen and Gerard Butler’s hardboiled secret agent Mike Banning knows all about it in today’s new poster and teaser image for Babak Najafi’s action-packed sequel.

Arriving by way of Entertainment Weekly, the poster embraces the film’s new British setting with arms wide open. Thrusting Aaron Eckhart’s President of the United States into jeopardy once more, London Has Fallen opens on the eve of the British Prime Minister’s funeral. Attracting the top brass from nations around the globe, the event becomes a hotbed for terrorist activity, thereby calling Butler’s semi-retired Banning back from his all-too-brief holiday for another mission that involves, well, kicking ass and taking names.

Picking up the reins from Antoine Fuqua’s sleeper hit, which emerged victorious in its own box office battle with like-minded actioner White House Down, Najafi’s sequel has attracted quite the ensemble cast. »

Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman Take Matters into Their Own Hands with HBO's 'Big Little Lies'

6 January 2016 9:41 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The idea of performers becoming producers to find creative fulfillment is far from new—see Jane Fonda, George Clooney, Brad Pitt to name a few—but Witherspoon and Kidman's collaboration on HBO's star-studded limited series "Big Little Lies" may be the most overt expression yet of Hollywood's top actresses demanding complex leading roles for women. Teaming up to option Liane Moriarty's 2014 novel, under the aegis of their respective Pacific Standard Films and Blossom Films labels, Witherspoon and Kidman are taking matters into their own hands. Neither shingle is without prior experience in this realm—Pacific Standard brought us both "Gone Girl" and "Wild," starring Witherspoon and directed by "Big Little Lies" helmer Jean-Marc Vallée, in 2014, and Blossom produced the challenging "Rabbit Hole," with Kidman, Dianne Wiest, and Aaron Eckhart, in 2010—but the HBO project has something of a "perfect storm" quality to it,...
