Watch: Trailer For Tennis Comedy 'Break Point' Starring Jeremy Sisto, J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart, And More

12 June 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sports as metaphor and conduit for personal change is not a new thing in cinema, but it's not too often we see tennis courts used for this thematic backdrop, nor for the setting of a comedy. But "Break Point" just does that. And after spending some time on the festival circuit last year, including a debut at SXSW, the movie is now headed to theaters and a new trailer has arrived. TV comedy veteran Jay Karas directs Jeremy Sisto, David Walton, Joshua Rush, J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart, Vincent Ventresca and Adam Devine in this film about a fading tennis champ who teams up with estranged brother for one last run at glory. Here's the official synopsis:  Jimmy Price is a reckless man-child on the last leg of his career as a doubles tennis player. When his latest partner drops him, he realizes he’s officially burned all of his bridges on the pro circuit. »

Shirt On, Or Shirt Off? Thn’s Top Jason Statham Screen Moments

29 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Say whatever you want about Jason Statham, but at the end of the day, you know exactly what you are going to get in Stath flick. Action, arse kicking, a couple of lovely dolly birds, his short right off and some kick-ass one liners. To celebrate the release of his new film Spy, which arrives in cinemas on Friday 5th June, we thought we’d count down our favourite Stath moments that have been captured on film over the years since his debut in 1998’s Lock Stock & Two Smokin’ Barrels. We love him. We all love him.

“Protection from what? Ze Germans?” Snatch (2000)

Stath plays… Turkish

Shirt On, or Shirt Off? – Shirt On

Possibly the film that secured Stath as a Hollywood leading man. His turn as Turkish is perhaps my favourite role that Statham has portrayed on screen. The film is full of one liners and fun interactions, particularly »

Pucker up, because the 2015 MTV Movie Awards are just a few days away. And what the Best Picture Oscar is to the Academy Awards, the coveted Best Kiss popcorn trophy is to the MTV Movie Awards.

Making Their Next Moves: Broad Green Pictures Up for the Challenge with “The Dark Horse”

9 April 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Their Tiff purchasing blitz wasn’t exactly over and done with. After Samba, 99 Homes and Eden, Broad Green Pictures have now added a touch of New Zealand in James Napier Robertson’s The Dark Horse. Yesterday, the distrib released their inaugural release slate with Mia Hansen-Løve’s latest being pushed out of the nest first — you can view the half dozen releases after the jump.

Gist: Starring Cliff Curtis, this is a true story based on the life of a charismatic, brilliant but little-known New Zealand Hero and chess champion – Genesis Potini, aka Gen.

Worth Noting: Robertson’s little known directorial debut is 2009′s I’m Not Harry Jenson.

Do We Care?: We’d normally not be inclined to see anything that groups feel-good, underdogs, chess and biopic elements, but Variety’s Peter Debruge appears to be a solid supporter calling this, “a stunning yet subtle Cliff Curtis performance, »
