Jason Statham Gets Gnarly In New Spy Clip

8 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Jason Statham has destroyed more villainous goons than we’ve had hot (and cold) dinners - and we're greedy buggers. He’s back repeating the trick in Paul Feig/Melissa McCarthy espionage action-comedy, Spy. This time, however, he’s playing things for laughs. A new clip from the film showcases his rather insecure agent and comes off like Alan Partridge channelling Daniel Craig's 007. Job done.brightcove.createExperiences();“This arm has been ripped off completely and reattached with this fucking arm,” he barks, desperately asserting his badass credentials in a way that would raise at least one Chev Chelios eyebrow.Statham, who plays a temper-fuelled spy called Rick Ford, has been on Feig’s wishlist since Lock, Stock and more specifically, those two Crank movies. “When people read the Statham role they assumed I’d go for someone like Will Ferrell, but I felt that it had to be the real guy, »

Jason Statham shares his Real Spy credentials in Nsfw Clip from ‘Spy’

12 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Stath has become a cult figure all of his own and it’s basically come from a lot of hard work and non-stop effort from the husky-voiced Brit star. In this geninuely entertaining clip for Spy, the new comedy-action film from Paul Feig.

Opening on 5th June, the movie stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. When her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

We all know McCarthy has slightly hit the unfunny bone in her last couple of outings but here it looks like she’s back on form, and we’re looking forward to seeing the ridiculous, more natural comedy side return!

Jason Statham Tells Us Why He's A Real Spy In New Clip From Spy

23 April 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Melissa McCarthy's latest team up, Spy, with her Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig may be more of the same from the actress, but she does have a great cast of straight men, and women, around her that you wouldn't necessarily peg as having comedy chops. Case in point is Jason Statham, who in the clip below plays up his hard man persona to hilarious effect. Released: June 5th Synopsis: A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster. »

‘Fantastic Four’ Footage, Cast Impress Exhibitors at CinemaCon

23 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Coming off a record-setting $5.5 billion year at the worldwide box office, 20th Century Fox brought an impressive slate of movies and stars to CinemaCon on Thursday — including the quartet of “Fantastic Four” actors.

The studio acknowledged that this version of “Fantastic Four” is being closely watched by its core audience. “The fanboys will let you know if you don’t get it right,” said new studio co-chair Stacey Snider before introducing the quartet comprising Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.

(In 2005, the studio also released a “Fantastic Four,” which grossed $330.6 million worldwide in box office.)

“We’re not supposed to say much about this,” Teller told the audience before the footage played. “Fantastic Four,” which will be released on Aug. 7, is a reimagining of Marvel’s superhero team. It centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate universe, which changes their physical form. The »

Joss Whedon interview: Avengers, Marvel, Titan A.E.

22 April 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joss Whedon chats to us about Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Jason Statham, what he's up to next, and more...

Joss Whedon: assembler of Avengers, slayer of vampires, houser of dolls, vlogger of Doctor Horrible, and now, um, ageist of Ultron. To be fair, Joss Whedon is geek royalty, and needs no introduction. So hopefully, he won’t mind that we gave him such a naff one.

We got to chat with the man himself at the Avengers: Age Of Ultron press event, and here’s what happened...

From what we’ve heard about this one, it sounds like you had to trim down a lot in the editing room. Was there any particular favourite scene you wish you could have saved?

Well, there was more shirtless Thor. The DVD extras are going to be enormously popular. But no, for me, it’s really a couple of little exchanges that »

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's diet a little tough to stick with

21 April 2015 5:13 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Rosie Huntington-Whitely struggles to live a ''balanced life''. The 28-year-old model has confessed she sometimes finds it difficult to maintain her svelte figure while refusing to deprive herself of her favorite treats as she still wants to ''enjoy [her] life''. She explained: ''I work out. I have a balanced life in terms of what I put into my body. But I'm not somebody who is calorie-counting and stressed about the way I look. I want to enjoy my life; I want to eat beautiful food. But I also want to feel great. ''My life is all over the place, so it is hard to find a balance. But that's what everyone's trying to figure out in life, right?'' The Devon-born beauty - who is in a long-term relationship with fellow Brit Jason Statham - now resides in La with her actor beau but often finds she misses her family and English home comforts. »

Fast & Furious 7 becomes seventh biggest movie of all time

20 April 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Friday, Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furous 7 became the fastest movie to gross $1 billion at the global box office, reaching the milestone in just 17 days, and now the latest instalment in the action franchise has climbed to seventh in the list of the highest-grossing releases of all-time.

Having pushed its total to $1.153 billion over the weekend, Furious 7 has overtaken last year’s top earner Transformers: Age of Extinction ($1.091 billion) is fast approaching 2013’s Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion) and Frozen ($1.274 billion).

At this point, it looks likely that the James Wan-directed sequel will surpass Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($1.342 billion) and perhaps even The Avengers ($1.519 billion), although its international takings will take a big hit this week as Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron begins rolling out around the globe.

Caroline Moran interview: writing Raised By Wolves

20 April 2015 12:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Raised By Wolves' co-writer chats about mining her childhood for comedy and why The Imperial Death March is the perfect writing motivator...

Tonight, the first series of Caitlin and Caroline Moran's sitcom, Raised By Wolves, comes to an end. Heavily inspired and based on their own adventures growing up in the West Midlands - although this particular writer veers geographically more towards Dudley than Wolverhampton - the six episodes have also given Rebekah Staton in particular a standout role as the kind of mum telly doesn't get very often.

Ahead of the series finale tonight, Caroline put down her pen/quill/word processor/Game Of Thrones boxset to spare us some time to talk about it...

It's a basic question, perhaps, but I'm interested in the answer. How has it been having your own sitcom on the television for the past month? How closely are you monitoring feedback and reaction to it? »

'Furious 7' Crosses $1 Billion at Worldwide Box Office

17 April 2015 5:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Furious 7 is poised to take the box office crown for the third week in row this weekend, but the action-packed sequel has just passed an incredible milestone, earning over $1 billion worldwide in just 17 days of release. The action-thriller has become the first Universal Pictures movie in history to earn over $1 billion during its initial theatrical release. Jurassic Park is currently the studio's highest-grossing movie ever, grossing $1.044 billion, but it only crossed $1 billion after its 3D re-release back in 2013. Furious 7's global haul now stands at $1.009 billion through today, and it will surely surpass Jurassic Park as the studio's highest-grossing movie of all time over the next few days. The sequel opened two days early in certain international markets, taking in $735.2 million internationally over 17 days, and taking in $273.7 million in North America in 15 days. Here's what Nick Carpou, Universal's president of domestic distribution, had to say in a statement. »

Week in Review: Steve Carell joins Robert Zemeckis’s ‘Marwencol’ movie

17 April 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Steve Carell has officially completed his transformation from comedic actor to a dramatic one. No one is left doubting his talents as a versatile performer. Thus, whatever he does next is highly anticipated, and this latest project might just be the perfect fit for him to show both sides of his acting range.

The Wrap is reporting that Carell is now set to star in Marwencol, a movie based on a 2010 documentary planned over two years ago by Robert Zemeckis. Carell will presumably portray Mark Hogancamp, who as seen in the documentary is a man who was beaten brutally by teenagers to the point that he suffered brain damage and amnesia. He now spends his time creating miniature figurines of a scale, World War II era town. Here’s the full synopsis for the documentary:
