The top 25 secret agents in film

27 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

‘The Transporter: Refueled’ Celebrates Reboot With Rocking Party at Playboy Mansion

26 August 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

EuropaCorp celebrated the reboot of “The Transporter” franchise in style Tuesday night with a premiere and party at the Playboy Mansion, replete with dancers and Playboy bunnies. Despite stepping into the shoes of an iconic action hero, Ed Skrein said he wasn’t nervous and approached his role in “The Transporter: Refueled” like he does any other.

“I approached it the same way I approach my independent movies for $300,000,” Skrein said. “I try to be as honest as I can in each situation and live each moment how the script dictates, not how previous movies have been, not how anybody else would have done it, not with the thought of it being a franchise.”

Skrein assumed the role of Frank Martin, played famously in three films by Jason Statham (Chris Vance also plays Frank Martin in the TV series), a former special-ops mercenary who is now living a “less »

Official Fast and Furious theme park ride coming to Universal Orlando

26 August 2015 5:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A ride based on Vin Diesel's blockbuster driving-fighting-stealing franchise is coming to Universal Orlando, Florida.

Based on the attraction of the same name in sister theme park Universal Studios Hollywood, Fast & Furious: Supercharged will arrive on the east coast in 2017.

Also featuring the likes of Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) and Tyrese Gibson (Roman), it promises to make you feel part of the "Fast family".

It also boasts an original storyline, and for what it lacks in Fast and Furious 7's big bad Jason Statham, it more than makes up for in big bad's brother Luke Evans.

The sad news is that to make space for Vin Diesel and company, resort stalwarts Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue and Disaster: A Major Motion Picture Starring You! will close later this year.

Are you ready for every Jason Statham punch ever?

26 August 2015 2:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A hero by the name of "Burger Fiction" has compiled every single punch Jason Statham has ever thrown into a supercut that will knock your block off.

Be warned, however: if you don't like the sight of stuntmen getting their jaws dislocated, you may want to click away now.

The YouTube channel in question previously gave the world the "Improbable weapon" supercut, which also has to be seen to be believed.

Think forks, or in Jason Statham's case, spoons.

As well as appearing in Fast and Furious 8, due out April 14, 2017, Statham will also return in Mechanic: Resurrection, out at some point in 2016.

Earlier this year, another Stath-related video went viral - essentially a '90s Shamen video where he played an oiled-up go-go dancer, see below - so he'll be pleased that this one is distinctly more flattering. »

A Whole Host Of New The Transporter Refuelled Clips

26 August 2015 1:15 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We’re little over a week until Ed Skrein takes over from Jason Statham with The Transporter Refuelled, and we have a shedload of new clips for you showing off the action this new instalment has in store for us, including Frank Martin trading in his car for a jet ski. Released: 4th SeptemberSynopsis: The producers of Lucy and the Taken trilogy bring you the next adrenaline-fueled installment of The Transporter series starring newcomer Ed Skrein (“Game of Thrones”) as Frank Martin, the most highly-skilled transporter money can buy. The stakes are greater and technology better, but the same three simple rules apply: never change the deal, no names and never open the package. When Frank is hired by cunning femme fatale Anna and her three stunning sidekicks, he quickly discovers he’s been played. Anna and her cohorts have kidnapped his father (Ray Stevenson) in order to coerce Frank into helping them take down. »

Rupert Friend interview: Hitman, computer games and more

26 August 2015 12:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The star of the new Hitman movie, Rupert Friend, chats to us about the movie, and videogames...

Rupert Friend is stepping into the shoes once trodden by Timothy Olyphant by starring in Hitman: Agent 47, that lands in UK cinemas this weekend. He took some time out from plotting our downfall to chat to us about the movie...

I've wanted to talk to you for quite a long time because I saw a short film that you wrote and thought it was fantastic, and wondered why you haven't made more of them.

Oh thank you, which one was it?

The Continuing and Lamentable Saga of the Suicide Brothers.

I did make one after that, called Steve.

After seeing Suicide Brothers, I wondered why you don't write features.

I have. Basically after the Suicide Brothers I wrote and directed a short called Steve starring Colin Firth, which you can find, I »

Jason Statham: every one of his punches, in one video

25 August 2015 10:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The mighty Jason Statham has hit a lot of people in his films. And someone's edited every punch into one not very family friendly video...

Appreciating this has popped up elsewhere on the internet too, you nonetheless didn't really expect us not to post this, right? The mighty Statham has long been the unofficial mayor of Den Of Geek (and if you're reading Mr Chelios, we're happy to make it official), and across the 41 films he's made since 1998, he's hit an awful lot of people on screen.

So many in fact, that one YouTube user - step forward 'Burger Fiction' - has compiled a video entitled Every Jason Statham Punch Ever. Already, Burger Fiction is on our Christmas card list, whoever she or he actually is.

There's not much more we can add, other than: here's the mighty Statham at work....

Cool Videos: A supercut of every Jason Statham punch...so far

25 August 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

If you've ever seen a Jason Statham film, chances are good that that film contained a scene (or scenes) of Statham pummeling someone in face repeatedly; perhaps you've even wondered just how many times Jason Statham has doled out punishment with his fists. Well the folks over at Burger Fiction have put together this handy supercut which features every single time Jason Statham has engaged in... Read More »

Watch Every Punch Jason Statham Has Ever Thrown On-Screen In One Badass Video

25 August 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you’re anything like us, then you’ve spent hours wondering just how many punches Jason Statham has thrown over his long career. Well wonder no longer, as YouTube channel Burger Fiction has compiled a super cut of every punch ever administered by the British action star. Proceeding roughly in chronological order through Statham’s long career (although some scenes are presented out of order), the supercut starts with Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; showcases the numerous franchises he headlines such as The Transporter, and The Expendables; and culminates in his more recent villainous appearance in Furious 7. Obviously not all of his roles are featured, such as his Handsome Rob character from The Italian Job – who mostly stayed behind the wheel and never laid a hand on anybody – but most of his career is represented in some capacity. The video has everything: dramatic »

The top 10 blockbusters of summer 2015

25 August 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Minions to Mad Max, and Ant-Man to Inside Out - our look at the finest ten blockbusters of summer 2015...

Summer blockbuster season finally draws to a close, with us mortal Brits gettings Hitman: Agent 47 this weekend. Then we're into September, and before you know it, those pesky Oscar prediction articles will have begun infecting the internet. So let's send off what's been a fairly decent summer season, with a countdown of our favourite films. Of course, feel free to tell us how wrong we are in the comments....

The Least Best

We don't really want to spend too many words digging over the corpses of films that have already been readily kicked to death, so we'll just nominate one film for the most disappointing of the summer.

With the proviso that we haven't seen Entourage, it'd have to be Terminator: Genisys. We appreciate many would opt for Fantastic Four here, »

Zachary Quinto interview: Star Trek, Hitman: Agent 47

23 August 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chat to Zachary Quinto about his role in Hitman: Agent 47, Star Trek and lots more...

Zachary Quinto will be reprising the role of Spock next summer, but before that, there’s the small matter of his pivotal role in the videogame to movie project, Hitman: Agent 47.

He spared us some time to talk about that, and the mighty Jason Statham

You’re on the press tour to promote Hitman: Agent 47 at the moment, does the process of talking through the film so much, analysing it with people, change the way you look at it?  

Sometimes. We were just having this conversation, Rupert and I. Is it more stimulating, valuable, to try to engage and come up with new ways to talk about it every time or is it more self-preserving to just stop and maintain a position and a relationship to talk about it?

'Daredevil' Season 2 Photo Boxes Up the Red Suit

20 August 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The suit makes the man. That's the statement boldly declared on an official photo from Marvel's Daredevil as it prepares for Season 2 in Spring 2016. Netflix sent out the promo via the show's official Twitter, which finds Matt Murdock's iconic red costume boxed up, sitting next to his walking cane.

Charlie Cox, who plays blind lawyer-turned-Hell's Kitchen vigilante, spent most of Marvel's Daredevil Season 1 fighting crime in a black bandana and matching tactical wear that cloaked him in the shadows of the night. That look was inspired by Frank Miller's iconic Marvel comic book run. It wasn't until the very end of the last episodes that we got to see Daredevil slip into his more recognizable, and certainly more iconic, red costume. As this latest sneak peek indicates, Marvel's Daredevil Season 2 is picking up right where we left off. And the new suit will be seen on the streets of Hell's Kitchen in full-effect. »

Vin Diesel says next Fast & Furious movie is titled Fast 8

17 August 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Sunday, Vin Diesel may have let the title of the next Fast & Furious movie slip while accepting a Teen Choice Award for Furious 7 in the Choice Movie Action/Adventure category.

At the end of his acceptance speech on behalf of the film’s cast, Diesel said, “I love all of you. I love all of you! And… until Fast 8.”

If the film does wind up being titled Fast 8, it will be the second title in the franchise to have only the word “Fast” come before the number, following 2011’s Fast Five

In his speech, Diesel also spoke about the passing of his friend and franchise star Paul Walker. “I can’t stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about somebody very, very, very important to us. One of the best blessings in our lives is the fact that we had the opportunity to call Pablo our brother. »

Everything we know so far about Fast & Furious 8: The cast, the plot and latest spoilers

17 August 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fast & Furious 7 surprised everyone when it became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time earlier this year, which obviously means an eighth instalment is on its way.

The world can't get enough of Dominic Toretto and his gang, who have grown from simple street racers to heist kings in a Mission: Impossible-Ocean's Eleven hybrid.

Fast 8 will be released worldwide on April 14, 2017, but fans are already searching for the latest updates. So here's everything we know so far, with the newest information right at the top...

It's called Fast 8

Just to make things more confusing, Vin Diesel has confirmed that the latest film will be called Fast 8. This follows Furious 7, Fast & Furious 6, Fast Five and so on. Vin clearly can't stick to a single title for this franchise.

However, the UK release for 7 was titled Fast & Furious 7, so expect the same in 2017.
