You won’t know what hit you in first TV spot for Hitman: Agent 47

30 June 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We saw a new trailer and a couple of posters last week [see here and here], and now we have the first action-packed TV spot for the upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which you can watch right here…

Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins »

Hitman: Agent 47 TV Spot and Poster Hit You Where You Least Expect It

29 June 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first full trailer for Aleksander Bach's Hitman: Agent 47 left no doubt that it would be an insane, over-the-top action flick on par with the film's videogame origins. It did, however, reveal quite a bit more of the plot than I would have liked, even if most of the film's twists and turns remain unspoiled. That being said, I much prefer seeing short snippets of the assassin at work, like those seen in this newly released TV spot. We also have a new international poster for you to feast your eyes on. Starring Rupert Friend in the title role, with Zachary Quinto, Hannah WareCiarán Hinds, and Thomas Kretschmann, Hitman: Agent 47 opens in theaters August 21st. Watch the new TV spot below: Here’s the official synopsis from 20th Century Fox: Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, »

Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer Unleashes The World’s Deadliest Assassin

23 June 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s August action flick Hitman: Agent 47 doesn’t make any excuses for what the film is: an exceptionally slick and kinetic video game adaptation packed with brutal fights and ridiculous gymnastics. If you could use some escapism while taking refuge from the hot summer sun, this movie is certainly looking like a good option.

Rupert Friend, of Homeland fame, stars in the action pic as the titular agent, a genetically engineered assassin who rejects his programming in order to track down his creators and earn his freedom. He’s joined in that pursuit by Hannah Ware, who’s seemingly playing another agent unaware of her conditioning. Zachary Quinto co-stars as a well-dressed baddie, and Ciaran Hinds also has a key role.

The real star of this show appears to be director Aleksander Bach, who has packed Agent 47 with some absolutely ridiculous, wildly entertaining stunts, »

Watch: New Trailer for ‘Hitman: Agent 47′ Finds Its Heroine

23 June 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rupert Friend’s Agent 47 is a riddle to everyone around him.

Fox has released the action-laden second trailer for “Hitman: Agent 47,” its upcoming video game adaptation starring “Homeland” actor Friend as a genetically engineered assassin. It’s a sequel to 2007’s “Hitman,” which starred Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott and Olga Kurylenko.

High-speed car chases, gunplay and helicopters dominate the trailer, which reveals that the killer agent is protecting a woman named Katia (Hannah Ware) from a corporation that wants to use her DNA to create more assassins.

Zachary Quinto, Thomas Kretschmann and Ciaran Hinds also star in the film, directed by Aleksander Bach.

The movie hits theaters on August 21.

Will You Turn Out to See 'Hitman: Agent 47'c

23 June 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fox has released a new Hitman: Agent 47 trailer, the movie based on the Io Interactive video game first released in 2000 and the most recent sequel version of which was released in 2012, unless you count the mobile version, "Hitman: Sniper", which was released just this month on iOS and Android. But how many really carec Especially when the latest movie version, directed by Aleksander Bach and starring Rupert Friend in the title role, really doesn't look much better than the 2007 installment, which was unable to crack $100 million worldwide upon release. Not many video game adaptations are able to succeed, most often because they are poor adaptations. The Resident Evil franchise did well by keeping the budget down and scoring big internationally and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider did well thanks in large part to Angelina Jolie. Otherwise you have the $122 million worldwide success of Mortal Kombat back in 1995 and Dreamworks is »

Game Of Thrones, TV, and where's the line?

12 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Game Of Thrones continues to shock, does there come a point where the balance just seems to be a little off?

This article contains spoilers for Utopia series one, and Game Of Thrones season 5.

I'm turning into my father. When I was younger, my dad was wary of TV shows that would turn my clearly pure mind. His particular ire was when he caught me taping Prisoner Cell Block H of all things, arguing to teenage me that if it was meant for people my age, they'd have put it on during the day, rather than half one in the morning.

That argument did not pan out well, as you can imagine.

Game Of Thrones, though, is on throughout the day via on-demand, and is shown at 9pm in the UK. That's not my beef, though. Instead, in season 5 in particular, I'm wondering why we're being shown things I'm »

Eddie Redmayne wins another award for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything

26 May 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Eddie Redmayne has won yet another award for his portrayal of acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Redmayne scooped the Irish Film and Television Awards' prize for Best International Actor, adding to his Oscar, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe awards.

Oscar winner Julianne Moore was also honoured with the Best International Actress prize for Still Alice at this weekend's awards ceremony.

Meanwhile, children's animated film Song of the Sea scooped the Best Irish Film prize.

Tomm Moore's feature is based on Celtic myth of the Selkie and follows brother and sister Ben and Saoirse, who have to figure out a mystery about their late mother. Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan and Moone Boy's David Rawle lend their voices to the movie.

Song of the Sea was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year, but ultimately lost out to Big Hero 6.

Miles Teller Boxing Biopic 'Bleed for This' Picked Up by Open Road

18 May 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When I think of Miles Teller, the first thing I think of is definitely not world-champion, Italian-American boxer Vinny Pazienza, or more commonly known as Vinny Paz. I am not saying he is wrong for the part. It just makes me do a double take at my computer screen when I read it. However, the guy is extremely talented, so I look forward to seeing it. And I will see it because Bleed for This, the Ben Younger directed film that features this performance, was picked up by Open Road for a whopping $4 million. That's a lot of doughnuts. You might have to freeze some so they don't go bad. This purchase comes after studios were shown a mere twelve minute sizzle reel at Cannes, as the film is still in post-production. Open Road's big pickup at last year's Cannes was Nightcrawler, so here's hoping they are two-for-two with quality. »

Cannes: Miles Teller Will 'Bleed' Again as Fighter Vinny Paz in Martin Scorsese-Produced Biopic

18 May 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After a dramatic all-night bidding war, Tom Ortenberg confirms, Open Road sealed the deal for writer/director Ben Younger's market title "Bleed for This," starring Miles Teller as world champion fighter Vinny Pazienza and Aaron Eckhart's trainer who brought him back to the ring after a nearly fatal car wreck. Cannes buyers were shown a 12-minute promo reel for the film, now in post-production, before Open Road threw down a reported $4 million. The distributor scooped "Nightcrawler" out of the market last year and successfully netted a writing Oscar nomination. Pazienza suffered a broken neck shortly after winning the 1991 Jr Middleweight World title and resumed training soon after, despite doctors' orders. This could be a "Rocky" style comeback story and a juicy follow-up for "Whiplash" star Teller, who had to get in fighting shape. Kate Sagal will play his mother. Ciaran Hinds co-stars. "Bleed for This" is produced by Bruce Cohen. »

Hitman: Agent 47 Takes Its Shot at Mad Men

15 May 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Will the Mad Men finale answer the question of the falling man in the opening credits, or is that imagery purely symbolic (I believe it’s the latter)? The upcoming film Hitman: Agent 47 has decided to provide its own answer by releasing a viral video. Personally, I think it would be pretty funny if we got a series of videos that kept playing off TV shows with Agent 47 randomly popping up. Check out the Hitman: Agent 47 viral video below. The film opens August 21th, and stars Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, and Ciaran Hinds.  For all of our Hitman: Agent 47 coverage, click here. Via Nerdist.

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

The first official photo has been released from Martin Scorsese's "Silence," his long in the works adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel which has almost finished production and recently wrapped the Taiwan-based leg of the shoot.

The story chronicles two Portuguese Jesuit priests (one played by Andrew Garfield) as they journey to Japan in the 17th century, a time when Christians were suffering persecution and had been driven underground. The pair arrive to investigate reports that their mentor has become an apostate.

Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano, Adam Driver, and Ciaran Hinds also star in the film and video has emerged from a press event for the film which Garfield describes as "deep and difficult material, timeless, and huge in scope, huge in emotion."
