First Look at action-thriller ‘Criminal’ starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Ryan Reynolds

13 February 2016 2:41 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m starting to get the impression that Ryan Reynolds likes to get in the minds of his craft-mates…literally.

Not satisfied with ‘shedding’ Ben Kingsley in Self/Less and his delusional self in The Voices (which may help to explain his sojourn as the Green Lantern), Reynolds finds his deceased memories, secrets and skills as a CIA operative implanted into apathetically dangerous death-row inmate Jerry Stewart (Kevin Costner) in hopes that he will complete the deceased operative mission and prevent a diabolical plot.

Scripted by Double Jeopardy writers Douglas Cook and David Weisberg, the Ariel Vromen directed action-thriller with a hint of sci-fi also stars Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones.

This high-concept offering from Summit Entertainment looks promising at first glance so check the clip and poster art out for yourself and let us know what you think:

Criminal opens in UK and Us cinemas on 15th April, »

Watch: First Trailer For Thriller 'Criminal' Starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Alice Eve & Gal Gadot

11 February 2016 9:14 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last year, Ben Kingsley's brain was put into the body of Ryan Reynolds, and the result was the terrible "Self/Less." But if you need your annual quota of brain/body switching movies filled, then the good news is that "Criminal" is on the way, and it boasts a surprisingly deep cast. Read More: Tarsem Singh's 'Self/Less' Starring Ryan Reynolds And Ben Kingsley Directed by Ariel Vroman ("The Iceman"), the movie stars Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Gal Gadot, Alice Eve, and Ryan Reynolds, in a high concept thriller that sounds like a little "Self/Less" meets "Face/Off." Here's the official synopsis:  The story of the right man in the wrong body. In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative’s memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous death-row inmate in hopes the he will complete the operative’s mission. »

Morgan Freeman Discusses the Roles He Isn’t Offered at Aarp’s Movies for Grownups Awards

9 February 2016 5:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aarp hosted its 15th annual Movies for Grownups Awards on Monday night at the Beverly Wilshire — where it honored the performances of actors, actresses and filmmakers that contributed to older audience-centric productions in the past year.

The awards show was launched in 2002 by editors of Aarp the Magazine, who felt that the interests of audiences over age 50 weren’t adequately represented on-screen.

“Aarp drew attention to our demographic; they advocated for us,” said Aarp committee member and former studio exec Sherry Lansing as she introduced the event. “This event will be like no other. There will be no music to play you off during your acceptance speech. There will be no one waving a baton, telling you to wrap it up,” she joked. “You can take all the time you want, because you have earned it.”

The event’s greatest accolade, the career achievement award, was presented to two-time Oscar »

Magical Super Bowl Trailer For The Jungle Book Teases Jon Favreau’s Mighty Animal Kingdom

7 February 2016 4:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Old Mother Nature’s recipes come alive in the special Super Bowl trailer for Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book reboot.

Doing good on the wild teaser clip from earlier in the week, Disney has unleashed a much more comprehensive promo for the director’s family-friendly romp. After establishing Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man as a fan-favorite before slicing and dicing up a cinematic love letter in the form of Chef, Favreau is smack bang in the middle of blockbuster territory once more, and The Jungle Book is shaping up to be a visual delight.

Incorporating a stylish mix of live-action and stunning VFX shots, it is up-and-comer Neel Sethi who will headline the House of Mouse’s feature as Mowgli the man-cub – red loincloth and all – exploring a vivid landscape under the watchful eye of his adoptive wolf-parents Raksha (Lupita Nyong’o) and Rama (Ralph Ineson).

Watch: New ‘Jungle Book’ Trailer Drops During Super Bowl

Disney’s Super Bowl ad roll-out continues. After debuting the new spot for “Captain America: Civil War,” the studio dropped an intense trailer for “The Jungle Book.”

The new trailer, however, didn’t actually air during the Big Game. Instead, a teaser for the trailer did, prompting the millions of viewers to go online to see the full clip — inevitably a money saver for Disney, cutting time in a massively expensive slot.

Jon Favreau is directing the latest adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic books. Newcomer Neel Sethi stars as Mowgli, joining an A-list voice cast that includes Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Bill Murray as Baloo, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Christopher Walken as King Louie, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha and Giancarlo Esposito as Akela.
