With Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as his parents, it's no surprise Maddox Jolie-Pitt has caught the acting bug. On Monday, Pitt and the 11-year-old celebrated the U.S. premiere of World War Z - Maddox makes a cameo in his dad's film as a zombie. After Pitt walked the red carpet, the pair attended the Samsung sponsored after-party at Catch restaurant, a Meatpacking district hotspot. At the soiree, Pitt was visibly in a great mood. The actor held a drink in his hand, happily talked to everyone that approached him and posed for countless photos. He greeted actress and »

TV: The Killing
Poorly received in its first two seasons, this Us remake of everyone's favourite Scandicrime saga was cancelled by network AMC. However, a cash injection by Netflix meant that the show was able to return for a third outing, and what's more, critical response suggests the show has undergone a massive improvement. »

Have sword, will travel. The summer blockbuster season is choking on sequels, from Iron Man extensions to the further adventures of The Wolverine. Yet, parents with adventurous kids probably have circled a sequel that isn.t getting as much attention as your usual comic-book superhero, despite the fact that he starred in a pretty faithful adaptation of a literary hit. That would be Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, which dropped its latest poster on Moviefone in an effort to drum up more awareness as we drift closer to the film.s August release date. Logan Lerman returns to the screen as Percy, the son of Poseidon who learned about his demi-god heritage in the underrated Percy Jackson movie from 2010, The Lightning Thief. That movie did a fine job of establishing the character.s mystical back story, and leaned on solid performers like Sean Bean, Steve Coogan, Rosario Dawson, Catherine Keener, »
We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
Beginning with this trailer back in February, I’ve hated the marketing for The Internship. It looks like an unfunny Google ad that hopes everybody still really likes the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson pairing. To be fair, this film does have an appealing cast on paper. I like Vaughn and Wilson, and there’s a funny film to be made with them, John Goodman, Rose Byrne, Josh Gad, Aasif Mandvi, and the rest. I’m just not feeling good about this being it.
Still, maybe The Internship will be much better than the trailers and TV spots have made it seem. That’s something we can find out this weekend. Right now I want to stop with the speculation and instead look back on some of my favorite recent comedies and their awesome casts. I stuck to films whose main goal is »

Review by Sam Moffitt
Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of the best actors working today. He is part of a group of actors who are so good, make such good choices in projects and are so dependable you want to see everything they are involved in.
Within that group I would include, in no particular order, William H Macy, Catherine Keener, Steve Carell, Jessica Chastain, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Taylor and Steve Buscemi. You probably have your own favorites and can add a dozen more names to that list.
Mr. Hoffman seems to specialize in likeable but flawed characters, people who are in pain, emotional, psychological or even physical pain. consider Love Liza for instance. But he can also play egotistical control freaks. I don’t know if I could ever consider him a “movie star”, I think of him, and you probably do to, as a top notch actor, more »

Directed by: Paul Greengrass
Rating: Not Yet Rated
Release Date: October 11, 2013
Trailer Score: 8/10
Thoughts by Tsr: “Good movie” is the impression this trailer gives off. Nothing in the trailer suggests to me that this will be the best film of 2013 – though a slew of Oscar nominations wouldn’t surprise me regardless of if I’m right or wrong on that – but it looks like a solid, well-acted, well-made drama. Sort of like Argo from last year (cue the screams that Argo was the best film of 2012).
Speaking of best films of 2012, Cloud Atlas was very high on my personal list. I loved all of Tom Hanks’ performances in that film and he looks to be continuing his hot streak here. Sure, I don’t love that he’s using his Carl Hanratty voice from Catch Me If You Can, but other »

Columbia Pictures has released the first trailer for Captain Phillips, director Paul Greengrass' (The Bourne Supremacy, Green Zone) adaptation of Richard Phillips' A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea by Richard Phillips, which tells the true story of the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the Us-flagged Mv Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.

Tom Hanks is a man in uniform for the titular role of real-life survivor Captain Richard Phillips who was held hostage for three days in 2009 during the Maersk Alabama hijacking where his ship was besieged by Somali pirates and we've got the Exclusive first trailer of Captain Phillips.
Along for the tense ride is Catherine Keener as his wife Andrea Phillips and at the helm, Paul Greengrass whose previous efforts, high-paced actioners The Bourne Ultimatum, The Bourne Supremacy, United 93, hint at a style and skill set that's well-suited to tell this tale of survival during the first American cargo ship hijacking in 200 years.
And we know what happened the last time Hanks had a role that brought him to the high seas - an Oscar nomination for Cast Away in 2000 - and from the footage here it seems that Captain Phillips should be a powerful biopic with plenty of heart. »
- Andrea Miller
Would it surprise you to learn that Tom Hanks hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar in more than a decade? I mention it only for two reasons. One, there was a historic stretch between Philadelphia and Cast Away where a Hanks Oscar nomination was simply taken for granted. Two, Captain Phillips, Hanks’ real-life tale about one man’s heroic actions after his giant cargo ship is hijacked by Somali pirates, feels like one of those classic, sure-thing Hanks movies. It seems to mix the best character traits of Cast Away’s Chuck Noland and Saving Private Ryan’s Captain Miller. »

Pirates have made a big comeback in recent years thanks to the lawless activities happening off the coast of Somalia, but while we hear of multiple hijackings and kidnappings from the region they rarely involve American citizens. One of the exceptions though occurred in 2009 when the American cargo ship Mv Maersk Alabama was attacked and boarded by pirates. Paul Greengrass is bringing the story to the big screen as his first film since 2010′s Green Zone, and the first trailer promises a thrilling real-life drama happily free of politics. Having Tom Hanks in your title role never hurts either. Check out the first trailer for Captain Phillips below. Greengrass knows action and suspense as evidenced by his two Bourne films, but he’s also shown the ability to mix the thrills with sensitive real life events (United 93). The film is based on Captain Richard Phillips’ account of the hijacking, “A »

Tom Hanks has had some success with real-life stories, and, along with director Paul Greengrass (also no stranger to truth-based filmmaking), will be hoping for great things from his latest, Captain Phillips. Take a look at the first trailer over at Apple.When Somali pirates hijacked his ship, the Maersk Alabama, in 2009, Captain Richard Phillips and some of his crew were taken hostage and faced real peril on the sea.How Phillips and co dealt with their captivity became the subject of national headlines and made the captain something of a hero, landing a book deal and plenty of TV appearances.Now, Greengrass, working with writer Billy Ray, has turned that story into his next taut, based-on-reality thriller. After some false starts, filming kicked off last year in several Us locations, in the Mediterranean, Malta, Morocco and here in the UK, with newcomers playing the pirates and Catherine Keener, Max Martini »
Paul Greengrass has proven himself time and again to be a very good director when it comes to taut action-thrillers. Between The Bourne Supremacy, United 93 and the underrated (in my opinion) Green Zone, Greengrass definitely has a recognizable style. Now he’s taken to the high seas for the true story of a cargo ship attacked by Somali pirates in Captain Phillips.
The story is a truly exciting one, even without fictional embellishment. Captain Phillips is a dramatization of the Maersk Alabama hijacking that had Somali pirates trying to take over a massive cargo ship. Tom Hanks plays the titular captain who tried to fight off the pirates, then gave himself up in return for the safety of his crew. The whole standoff, which brought in the Navy SEALs and played something like an old-school pirate drama, is really tailor-made for a big actioner. Which, based on the new trailer for Captain Phillips, »

After an unsuccessful escape attempt, he was subsequently rescued when Us Navy Seal snipers shot and killed three of the pirates.

Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, and United 93, has another exciting epic on the horizon. Captain Phillips, based on the true story of Richard Phillips, sees Tom Hanks in the eponymous role as a man that allows himself to be taken hostage by Somali pirates, in return for his crew’s safety. The trailer certainly highlights the action present in the film, and it also seems as though Greengrass has tuned down his shaky-cam preferences. If United 93 is anything to go by, then we know just how powerful and traumatic Greengrass can make these true life action films.

The first riveting trailer for Paul Greengrass' new film Captain Phillips has been released. The movie tells the true story of the 2009 Somali pirates hijacking of the Mv Maersk Alabama. This was the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. Tom Hanks plays the title character in the movie, and he is going to be awesome in it. The movie itself looks fantastic, and I can't wait to see it!
Captain Phillips comes out on October 11th, 2013.
