Jason Statham Kicks Ass in Las Vegas in Trailer for Wild Card

8 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Jason Statham is back and getting violent with a bunch of Las Vegas thugs in his latest action thriller Wild Card, which is called Joker in the the UK. The movie is a remake of the 1987 film Heat with Burt Reynolds, and it was supposed to be directed by Brian De Palma before The Mechanic and The Expendables 2 director Simon West took it over. 

It looks like an awesome action flick, and I imagine Statham fans won't be disappointed in what they see in this trailer. He just goes on a Vegas rampage kicking all kinds of ass! Here's the synopsis:

Nick Wild, an ex-marine and gambling addict, goes into the protection business but plans to leave Las Vegas for a better life. When his last girlfriend, Holly, is found beaten and left for dead, he agrees to help revenge her. He will soon discover that the guilty man is Danny DeMarco, »

First Trailer For Wild Card Has Jason Statham Kicking Ass And Taking Names

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to a film starring Jason Statham, you almost always know what you’re getting into before the opening credits even begin rolling. The British actor is about as bankable as they come, and following a string of  balls-to-the-wall performances in The Expendables, Crank and The Transporter, Statham — or “The Stath,” if you prefer — has grown into a bona fide action star, and his latest role is no different.

Starring as an ex-marine with a crippling gambling addiction, Statham is set to topline Simon West’s Wild Card, a revenge tale situated within Sin City itself. In essence, the film is a remake William Goldman’s novel Heat — no, not that Heat — which originally arrived back in 1986, but thanks to a number of production issues that included director changeovers, the thriller was never given a chance in the limelight.

And so, with West and Statham both on board »

Movie Review – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014)

27 November 2014 12:09 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, 2014.

Directed by Francis Lawrence.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Natalie Dormer, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks

Synopsis:

After defying the capital at the end of Catching Fire, Katniss joins the rebels of District 13 to take on President Snow.

The phenomena of The Hunger Games has been interesting to watch and as we come to the penultimate film it’s been a pleasure to see the franchise develop and for its star Jennifer Lawrence to flourish in the box office and indie scene. Saying that Mockingjay –  Part 1 is the weakest so far and has fallen into the commercial trap of splitting the final book into two films.

Part 1 follows the aftermath of Katniss’ destruction of the force field at the end of Catching Fire. Peeta (Hutcherson) has been kidnapped by the Capitol, District 12 lies »

Watch: Bing Crosby on PBS' American Masters (Videos)

24 November 2014 12:03 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

But almost 40 years since he left us, it's easy to forget that Crosby recorded nearly 400 hit singles over his long career--more than either Elvis Presley or the Beatles. He was also the owner of Pittsburgh Pirates as well as thoroughbred race horses, and played a fab game of golf. In fact, he died on a Madrid golf course at age 73 in 1977. PBS's season finale of "American Masters," "Bing Crosby Rediscovered," aims to dig a little deeper behind the Hollywood persona. The show debuts Tuesday, December 2 at 8 pm, the same day as the DVD, with an encore airing on Friday, December 26 at 9 pm. Narrated by Stanley Tucci, the documentary boasts new interviews the Crosby family, his record producer Ken Barnes, his biographer Gary Giddins and more. In the videos below, crooners Tony Bennett and Michael Feinstein talk about Crosby's singing and "Moonlight Becomes You" from "Road to Morocco" (1942), on one Tonight Show. »

Film Review: ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’ Shouldn’t Have Been Split in Two

23 November 2014 5:46 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – My issue with the “one movie split into two parts” debate isn’t even about money, which is clearly the main reason why we’ve seen blockbuster films do it like the two-part “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and now the two-part “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay”.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

My beef is the resulting two-hour film that doesn’t have nearly enough meat to even make it to the end of part one because it’s unnaturally stretched out. The film even awkwardly ends in a splice that should wrap itself up now without making fans pay again a year from now.

Anyone who has read these best-selling books by Suzanne Collins knows the source material for this film is weak. A instant complaint with this film is that “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” no longer has, you know, The Hunger Games going on. Sure, there’s a new story to take its place, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has biggest Friday opening of 2014; although the lowest of the franchise

23 November 2014 6:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be the lowest of the franchise thus far, but The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has smashed records for 2014 with the biggest opening Friday of the year.

Taking a whopping $55 million across 4,151 screens, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has eclipsed Transformers: Age of Extinction, which had a Friday total of $41.8 million. With an extra foreign gross, the movie currently sits on $122 million worldwide. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 should take around $125 million over the weekend in the Us alone.

But it’s not all good news for Lionsgate, as despite the good takings, it’s the lowest opening for The Hunger Games series. The original movie opened to $67.3 million while its sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had a Friday opening of $71 million. Experts have theorised that the dip could be due to series fatigue and the fact this is the first part of a two-part movie. »

22 November 2014 6:30 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Lionsgate released their new action/drama flick, "Hunger Games 3: Mockingjay Part 1" into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was great and extremely entertaining with tons of drama,action and a great storyline. It stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson, Evan Ross, Lily Rabe, Patina Miller, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Jena Malone. In the new movie, Plutarch Heavensbee and District 13 President Alma Coin eventually convince Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) to join their crew as their Mockingjay leader by agreeing to rescue Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and the other tributes that were captured by the evil Panem capitol and giving them full pardons for any crimes they committed in battle. Meanwhile, President Snow kills anyone who associates themselves with the Mockingjay symbol in any way. Katniss »

Review: Monkey Shines (Blu-ray)

22 November 2014 11:15 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Oh my, how the mighty had fallen! I had vague memories of Monkey Shines when I watched it over twenty years ago and, after revisiting this, it all makes sense why this film doesn’t spring to mind when I think of Romero’s great early body of work. George A. Romero’s first studio film ideally should have been the perfect opportunity for him to showcase his talent in a direction that nobody would expect and on paper it would seem that was his intention.

The story itself isn’t exactly straight horror. In fact, the first hour of the film plays off of a tragedy and is meant to create empathy for Jason Beghe’s character in a way that Christy Brown earns empathy in My Left Foot, but Beghe’s character isn’t developed enough to forgive or understand his selfish demeanor. He’s portrayed as simply »

Critical Mass: 'Mockingjay' reviews hung up on two-part finale

21 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The biggest clash at the movies in this year might not be Katniss against the Capitol, but Katniss against Guardians of the Galaxy. In 2013, Catching Fire was the year's top grossing movie, and now, with Mockingjay—Part 1, Jennifer Lawrence has a chance to make it two years in a row. Industry analysts are expecting the biggest opening weekend of the year, one that could approach $150 million (though Thursday-night business was soft). The sequel—the first of two films based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling finale, Mockingjay—picks up right after where Catching Fire concluded. In the end of the previous installment, »

Box Office: The Hunger Games Opens Big With $17 Million On Thursday Night

21 November 2014 6:59 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has been met with a mostly very positive response, and while some have argued that the movie should not have been split into two, you can't blame Lionsgate in the least based on these box office numbers! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Francis Lawrence's big screen adaptation of the Suzanne Collins penned novel had the best Thursday night debut of 2015, earning $17 million. That's quite a bit less than The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's $25.3 million, but that one was in IMAX theaters as well. Mockingjay is expected to easily pass the $100 million mark this weekend, topping the debuts of both Transformers: Age of Extinction and Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore and Natalie Dormer. Part 1 and Part 2 were apparently shot back to »

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Review: A Dull, Dark Exercise

21 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1." Not exactly the kind of pithy title that's the stuff of poetry, but it should do fine alerting audiences to the fact that this is part of the immensely popular young adult series penned by Suzanne Collins, that we've reached the culmination of the trilogy, and, naturally, we're only getting half of it in this 123-minute epic.

The film starts immediately after the last one left off, with a harried Katniss Everdeen trying to make sense of her new situation in her new home (alas, for fans of French action flicks, there's no parkour taking place in this "District 13").

Should I have seen the other films before this one?

Oh, yeah, and not just because none of it will make sense otherwise. Naturally films in a series shouldn't necessarily be judged on how they stand alone, but in this case it's even »

Film Review: Moving On in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’

20 November 2014 8:53 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The über popular “The Hunger Games” series is back, splitting the final novel into two movie parts, Harry Potter style. Subtitled “Mockingjay - Part 1,” this is the beginning of the end of the story, setting up rather than knocking down.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

But “The Hunger Games” has its own distinct feel and source, plus a once-in-a-lifetime cast that deliver the rather soap operish ramifications with a seriousness that edges on parody – there are parts of the film where it wouldn’t be surprising if the actors burst out in laughter. The battle against the evil district of Panem is Dystopia 101, but there is a style to it, and a sly wit, that gives this series an edge in the teenager-fighting-the-man-in-the-future genre of books and films. Jennifer Lawrence as the heroine Katniss adds a depth of feeling that maintains a rooting interest, and old pros like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman »

The Games They Play: Collins’ Ya Dystopia Trudges On and On

As is now customary in the designed business model of franchise movie making, the last novel of dystopic Ya trilogy The Hunger Games has been divided into two installments, spread a year apart in order to keep interest alive. If the second film of the series, Catching Fire (2013), felt like a bigger budget rehash of basically everything that already happened in the first film, Mockingjay: Part 1 is at least interesting for its drifting away from the formulaic model already established, yet it feels something like a misnomer of a film, more of an extended prologue to a finale rather an actual ‘part’ deserving of its own distinction.

Languishing in the bowels of the underground District 13, long thought extinct, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is now being recruited by this district’s leader, President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore) and surprise »
