Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones to receive Santa Barbara's Cinema Vanguard Award

15 December 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Santa Barbara Film Festival's Cinema Vanguard Award was created in recognition of actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film. It's makes for as subjective a reading as anything, I suppose, but this year's honorees are a fair enough choice: "The Theory of Everything" stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. "These two actors continue to impress," Sbiff Roger Durling said. "Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones's performances together in 'The Theory of Everything' are nothing short of an astonishing collaboration, recalling the alchemy of Daniel Day-Lewis and Brenda Fricker in 'My Left Foot.'" The accolade will be awarded during a tribute presentation on Thursday, Jan. 29.

New Trailer for Jason Statham's Action Thriller - Wild Card

12 December 2014 12:12 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got another action-packed trailer for Jason Statham's upcoming Las Vegas gambling thriller Wild Card. I'm a big fan of the films that Statham makes. Basically, every movie he stars in manages to entertain me. This latest film of his is a remake of a 1987 movie called Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds. I vaguely remember watching that movie, but this one looks like a lot of fun. It was directed by Simon West (The Mechanic and The Expendables 2), and here's the synopsis: 

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem.

Watch: Jason Statham Gambles With Danger In U.S. Trailer For 'Wild Card'

12 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hey, your bi-annual (or so) dose of Jason Statham is just around the corner! We just saw the actor in "The Expendables 3" a few months ago, and next summer he'll be back for a double whammy of "Furious 7" and "Spy." But beforehand, he's hitting the tables in "Wild Card," and  the U.S. version of the trailer has dropped today.  Based on a book by that name, a remake of a 1986 Burt Reynolds movie no one remembers, directed by Simon West (forever chasing career high "Con Air"), and featuring a pretty eclectic cast including Michael Angarano (killing it on "The Knick"), Milo Ventimiglia, Dominik García-Lorido, Anne Heche, Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander (Costanza!), Hope Davis and Stanley Tucci (the latter two deserving so much better), the movie is your basic Statham-cracks-skulls action thingy. Here's the official synopsis:  Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional. »

New Wild Card Trailer a Vast Improvement; Looks Like Jason Statham’s Best Movie In Years

12 December 2014 10:44 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I like Jason Statham.  I especially like him in other people's movies because, as a rule, the sub-genre that's basically come to be known as "Jason Statham movies" isn't really my thing.  I get the appeal, it's just not for me.  But Wild Card (while still not exactly in my wheelhouse) looks like it has more personality than your standard Statham fare.  For one, it's got a better cast.  And, with a script by the legendary William Goldman (who, to be fair, had seen better years prior to writing Dreamcatcher with Lawrence Kasdan), it looks like it has a lot more personality than some of his other films.  This new trailer is also light years better than the international one released a few weeks ago. Hit the jump to check out the Wild Card trailer.  The film, directed by Simon West, also stars Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Dominik García-Lorido, Anne Heche, »

Full Trailer: Jason Statham In "Wild Card"

12 December 2014 10:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following the first photo last week, the U.S. trailer is now out for the Jason Statham action thriller "Wild Card". Helmed by Simon West and penned by the legendary William Goldman, this one seems quirkier and more stylised than the typical "Statham movie".

Statham plays a Las Vegas bodyguard who helps a friend get revenge on a sadistic thug. Trouble is, said thug is the son of a powerful mob boss and the bodyguard soon finds himself on the run from the mob. Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Anne Heche, Sofia Vergara, Jason Alexander, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci and Dominik García-Lorido also star.

Watch Dwayne Johnson and Jimmy Fallon’s Intense Staredown

11 December 2014 10:44 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jimmy Fallon was able to convince Dwayne Johnson to put on a wig and (kind of) sing for another intense staredown on The Tonight Show. Of course, there are some subtler gems here, too: a legendary duck face, a classic eyebrow raise, some unintentionally glittery eyes, and a rhyme that's unfortunately missing Stanley Tucci. (Also, Johnson made Fallon an action figure, in honor of the host's recent life development.) »

‘Transformers’ At the Oscars Isn’t the Joke You Think it Is

11 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What’s the easiest target in Hollywood? Simple. Transformers: Age of Extinction for Best Picture of the Year. Awards season is upon us, and like every other studio in existence, Paramount has been sending out a bevy of “For Your Considerations” — polite requests that you consider their year’s fare for a crop of Oscars. Among that crop is Age of Extinction, a film with a sickly 18% on Rotten Tomatoes, that managed the unconscionable sin of having a giant robot wielding a sword and riding on an even giant-er robot that’s also a T-Rex that can breathe fire…and still being a thick grey slab of dullness. Check out the “For Your Consideration” here if you’d like — it’s probably worth a look, if just for Stanley Tucci’s “running in slow-mo” face. And, as you can expect, this move is the current laughingstock of the Internet, prompting a stream of pointing, giggling »
