A film that starts at its end. It only could be a Blood Trap ending. In Blood Trap’s Universe nobody’s good, nobody is bad. It’s just people trapped like fish in a barrel; a bloody nightmare of a barrel. Passengers in a wonderful world with a one way ticket to a Fairy-Punk-Tale called Blood Trap. A darkly funny, disarmingly sensitive horror-comedy.
Through a brilliant mixture of violence, lunacy, and a touch of melancholy, the film follows the story of Five ex-cons – amongst there number a certain Vinnie Jones as Big Jones – and one disillusioned retired screw – Costas Mandylor plays Roman – blast their way into a mansion house to kidnap a rich young woman, Nika – starring the International Martini Girl, Elena Mirela. »

It’s almost the end of April, dear readers, and that means the start of the summer movie season is nearly upon us. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ examines the teaser trailer for director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Once those dusty first images emerged, blinking into the sunlight, just yesterday, we knew it was only a matter of time before Sony and MGM premiered the first trailer for The Magnificent Seven remake.
And sure enough, today brings forth our first peek at Antoine Fuqua’s (The Equalizer) western in motion, showcasing stand-offs, tense camaraderie and a collection of dastardly gunslingers all fighting for the same cause. Upon crossing paths with Haley Bennett’s distressed villager, Denzel Washington’s Sam Chisolm catches wind of unhinged industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, spurring him into action to protect the denizens of Rose Creek.
He can’t do it alone, however, and in his plight he assembles half a dozen vigilantes – a so-called “bunch of strays” – to ward off the oncoming threat of Bogue and his men on horseback. Among that crack team are Chris Pratt as wisecracking gunslinger Josh Farraday, Ethan Hawke, a bearded Vincent D’Onofrio, »

The original, itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic "Seven Samurai," followed seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns who are brought together by a group of desperate townspeople to protect them from a nasty group of bandits.
The new take, which boasts a script by Nic Pizzolatto ("True Detective") and Richard Wenk ("The Equalizer"), changes it up a bit with the villain being an industrialist named Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard) who has the townspeople under his deadly control.
Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ethan Hawke, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier play the titular seven while Haley Bennett, Matt Bomer, Billy Slaughter and Vinnie Jones also star. The film opens September 23rd.

When it comes to tired, hackneyed British cop dramas, our tolerance is somewhat limited. But when you transpose the same beats and tropes into a foreign language affair, there’s an illusion that makes the endeavour seem almost exciting, and exotic.

Movie fans will be seeing a bunch of bad ass cowboys coming together to help a woman wronged when “Magnificent Seven” debuts for Sony in September. Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution for Sony, told a CinemaCon audience Tuesday that audiences should be drawn to the film because it is “cool, it’s contemporary, it’s stylish.”
Director Antoine Fuqua told the film exhibitors assembled for Sony’s presentation of its 2016 slate that the film attracted him and an all-star cast including Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke because “it’s about redemption and the pursuit of justice,” adding, “that resonated with all of us.” Whether style or substance, the CinemaCon crowd seemed to be buying: There were whoops of approval and applause for the film.
