The action-adventure flick Big Game sees the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) escaping from a crashing Air Force One into the rugged countryside of Finland. There, he comes across a young 13-year-old (Onni Tommila) on a traditional quest to prove he can survive 24 hours alone in the wild, and the unlikely duo must escape a group of kidnappers who are hot on their trail and looking to take the President. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Victor Garber talked about playing the Vice President to Samuel L. Jackson’s President, what attracted him to Big Game, how he approaches his roles, and his fondest memories from this shoot. He also talked about why Alias was such a turning point in his career, being a part of the DC comic book universe, playing Dr. Martin Stein on The CW’s The Flash and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow, »

When The CW debuted the first poster and first trailer for their epic ensemble DC Comics superhero show Legends of Tomorrow, they confirmed that the show will premiere in January 2016. Now, an official Tweet from the show's writers' room claims that we won't see the anticipated adventure series until spring 2016. There is no reason given for the delay. And there is no further information at this time. What this means is that Legends of Tomorrow may debut after both The Flash Season 2 and Arrow Season 4 have wrapped things up, offering fans another superhero alternative that will take them into summer.
In Legends of Tomorrow, when heroes alone are not enough... The world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat - one »

Rules of the Game: Helander’s Schlocky English Language Debut
Even though the film seems perfectly well aware of its own silliness as it recapitulates formulaic American action cinema tropes of days past, Finnish director Jalmari Helander’s Big Game never manages to elevate itself beyond a mere dose of basic mimicry. A follow-up to his cult audience courting debut, the strange evil Santa Claus movie Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, it would appear the filmmaker prizes his own amusement over his audience’s, at least judging from the inescapable hokiness tinging the film.
Where his first film displayed playfulness with its dark humor and memorable action sequences, he’s returned with a different set of vintage inspirations. At times entertaining, especially concerning its unique blend of cultures, and with surprisingly adept special effects sequences, this is goofy fun as long as you can keep your expectations in check. »

Focus Features has released a new featurette and clip for Tarsem Singh‘s latest, Self/less, a psychological science fiction thriller about a man dying from cancer (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” I'm intrigued by Self/less. The ramifications a man faces when he tries to beat god always makes for solid ground to build a riveting science fiction premise on, and Tarsem is a compelling director with an eccentric track record, so I'm always intrigued to see what he'll do next. Stylistically, Self/less looks quite restrained for the director, who can occasionally get so immersed in his visuals that narrative falls by the wayside. When he's at his best we get The Fall, at his worst, Immortals (which I actually »

Next year, The CW will debut DC's Legends of Tomorrow, a spinoff series that features Arrow and The Flash. Along with Arrow's Caity Lotz (White Canary), Brandon Routh (Atom) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein), and The Flash's Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold) and Dominic Purcell (Heat Wave), the spinoff will feature new characters such as Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter) and Ciara Renee (Hawkgirl). While we have to wait for next January to see these heroes and villains come together, Spoiler TV reports that The CW is developing a Hawkgirl spinoff series.
The show is reportedly in very early stages of development, but it would likely get a straight-to-series order, with Ciara Renee set to star as Hawkgirl. If this show does go forward, it seems that her stint on DC's Legends of Tomorrow could be a short one, but, given how often Arrow and The Flash cross over, »

After receiving rave reviews out of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the latest trailer, as well as a new poster and three new images for Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated cartel thriller, Sicario.
When Arizona FBI agent and kidnap-response-team leader Kate Macer (Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find leads to profound consequences on both a personal and global level. Kate is recruited to join a covert black-ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000) along with special agent Matt Graver (Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin, Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008).
Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, clandestine American spies and thousands of innocents. »

We've seen Emily Blunt in many different roles since her breakout in The Devil Wears Prada, but her latest film might finally earn her some Oscar attention. She stars as an FBI agent who get in over her head in Sicario (Spanish for "hitman"), a cartel thriller from director Denis Villeneuve. Benicio Del Toro plays opposite her as the mysterious leader of the task force for which she's been recruited. Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, and Jon Bernthal all costar, along with a lot of violence and many bags of illegal narcotics. Give the trailer a watch above, and stay tuned for the Sept. 18 release date. »
In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent [Emily Blunt] is enlisted by an elite government task force official [Josh Brolin] to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past [Benicio Del Toro], the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive. A Lionsgate presentation, a Black Label Media presentation, a Thunder Road production, a Denis Villeneuve film. Cast: Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, Jon Bernthal Directed by: Denis Villeneuve Written by: Taylor Sheridan Produced by: Basil Iwanyk, Edward L. McDonnell, Molly Smith, Thad Luckinbill, Trent Luckinbill Sicario Official Socials Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SicarioMovie Twitter: https://twitter.com/SicarioMovie Instagram: http://instagram.com/sicariomovie »
We assume Sicario is already on your radar because we also assume you remember it being on our list of 2015 Movies That Need to Be on Your Radar. If, however, it isn't, we're guessing it will be after watching the first trailer for it, which just hit online. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy, and the upcoming Blade Runner sequel), Sicario stars the always impressive Emily Blunt as a rising FBI agent who is sent to Mexico to help the CIA take down a drug cartel. As is often the case with trying to topple drug-fueled empires, things don't go so well, and our bushy tailed agent finds herself caught up in a war that seems to have enemies on all sides. Sicario also stars Josh Brolin, Benecio Del Toro, Victor Garber, and Jon Bernthal. It hits...
