How Can You Get a 3D Printed Jason Statham Mask?

22 May 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If you’ve ever watched The Transporter, Crank, or The Expendables and wished you were Jason Statham, then we have some good news. Thanks to a pretty odd promotion from 20th Century Fox for next month’s action comedy Spy, you can get plans for a 3D printed Jason Statham mask. Disclaimer: Whatever you decide to do once […]

Box Office Democracy: Mad Max: Fury Road

22 May 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In 2009 my parents visited me in Los Angeles for the first time and I needed to show them a movie as the Arclight chain of theaters because I wouldn’t shut up about how great they were. There wasn’t anything out that we were dying to see so we saw the latest movie from Jason Statham more because we liked him than because we thought we would see a fantastic movie. That was the first time I saw Crank: High Voltage and it changed what I wanted from an action movie: pace above all other things. I want a movie to move as fast and damn the audience if they can’t keep up. Mad Max: Fury Road is the first movie since that feels like it is genuinely pushing at the limits of the genre and it makes for a truly impactful filmgoing experience.

Movie Review – Spy (2015)

22 May 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.

Synopsis:

A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.

Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »

Spy: Jason Statham Steals the Show in 5 New Clips

20 May 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released five new Spy clips for Paul Feig's (Bridesmaids, The Heat) upcoming espionage comedy. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as a desk-bound CIA agent who must go into the field for the first time when the identity of the agency's premiere assets are compromised. Jason Statham, who co-stars in the film as rugged top agent Rick Ford, is a consistently underrated performer who's long been relegated to shoot 'em up action films. Don't get me wrong, I love those movies, but I'm excited to see Statham finally get a chance to flex his comedy skills. If these clips are any indication, he's going to kill it. While he's definitely still playing to type as the brawny badass, Statham's bringing a self-awareness and utterly crass delivery to the character. Perri singled Statham out as a one of Spy's highlights in her SXSW review, and early »

Jason Statham: our last action hero (50 million Facebook fans can't be wrong)

20 May 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Rock is too big, Sly Stallone is too old and Steven Seagal looks too much like a sea lion. When you need a man who can chop off a gunman’s hand and use it to shoot someone else in the face, there’s only one person who fits the bill

In Homefront, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising DEA agent. In Crank, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising hit man. In Hummingbird, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising homeless man. In In the Name of the King, Jason Statham is a tough, uncompromising farmer.

Jason Statham is nothing if not consistent. Consistent and tough and uncompromising. But that consistency has won him legions of fans – almost 50 million on Facebook alone. You know what you’re getting with a Jason Statham film. He will beat people up. He will crash cars. He will do an unconvincing American accent. And »

Keoni Waxman interview: directing Steven Seagal

20 May 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of Mercenary: Absolution talks to us about international appeal, tough guys, and all things Seagal...

I’m Den of Geek’s go to guy for Steven Seagal movies and, as such, was very excited when the opportunity to interview Keoni Waxman arose. He’s directed six movies that have starred Seagal and worked on the TV series True Justice with the big man.

Not only was I excited to speak to Waxman because I like his films, I thought he’d be an interesting interview subject. While I understand that interviews with big Hollywood stars are more popular, I felt like I would have a chance to speak to someone that many Den of Geek readers wouldn’t know much about, and that he’d be able to offer us an interesting perspective on a part of the film industry that we don’t have much access to. »

Here's How You Can Become Jason Statham In Honor of 'Spy'

20 May 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

You know how in spy movies they always have impeccably realistic rubber masks of real people, or at least other characters? You've seen them in the Mission: Impossible movies and more recently on TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But they've never been totally believable, right? At least in the movie Face/Off the disguises were the real faces of two men who swapped identities. Jason Statham knows what's up, as his character in Spy doesn't simply ask for a mask in the below...

19 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ever wanted to be someone else? Now you can. Specifically, you can be Jason Statham. Sort of.  You know how in spy movies they always have impeccably realistic rubber masks of real people, or at least other characters? You've seen them in the Mission: Impossible movies and more recently on TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But they've never been totally believable, right? At least in the movie Face/Off the disguises were the real faces of two men who swapped identities. Jason Statham knows what's up, as his character in Spy doesn't simply ask for a mask in the below scene. He asks to use "the Face/Off machine." And now you can, too!   In the movie, the tough guy is told that such a machine does not exist. At least it didn't at...

Spend Saturday With These Two New ‘Spy’ Clips

16 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Feig’s Bridesmaids did wonders for American female comedians. The comedy let a group of funny women take the lead and showed the likes of The Hangover that sisters really could do it for themselves. The breakout star of the piece was Melissa McCarthy who, up until that point, was more well know as the sickly sweet best friend in The Gilmore Girls.

Capitalising on her success in Bridesmaids the last few years have seen McCarthy throw herself into every and any comedy film going. Her latest venture is Spy, a comedy film about an intelligence agent who finds herself playing spy alongside big names like Jason Statham and Jude Law.

Ahead of it’s imminent release we have two snippets to share with you, our loyal Thn followers. The first clip showcases British funny lady Miranda Hart’s Hollywood debut. The second sees an expletive laden Jason Staham »

Enter Our Giveaway and Win Jason Statham’s Face

15 May 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my favorite films from this year’s SXSW was director Paul Feig’s action-comedy Spy. The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason StathamRose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale,  Allison JanneyPeter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. During the premiere, the crowd was laughing so loud I missed lines of dialogue between Statham and McCarthy. Trust me, this is a very funny movie that you should definitely see in a theater when it’s released June 5th. For more on Spy, read Perri’s review or watch the trailers. »

Uma Thurman Will Lead Comedy The Brits Are Coming

14 May 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When she’s not providing inspiration to aging boy bands everywhere, Uma Thurman is actually still making movies in Hollywood, and today brings word that the Pulp Fiction actress has signed on to topline a very promising comedy project called The Brits Are Coming.

James Oakley (The Devil You Know) will direct from a script he co-wrote with Alex Michaelides. Intriguingly, the lineup of producers includes Cassian Elwes, A Most Violent Year helmer J.C. Chandor (a mentor to Oakley), Robert Ogden Barnum and Will Clevinger, giving The Brits Are Coming a distinct air of importance behind the scenes. Adding to anticipation for the pic is news that Kristen Chenoweth, currently appearing in a Tony-nominated role on Broadway in On the Twentieth Century, has joined the supporting cast.

The story centers on a pair of nutty Brits, Harriet Fox (Thurman) and her husband Peter, who travel to L.A. in order »

Samuel L Jackson joins Simon West's remake of The Blob

14 May 2015 5:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As a new remake of 50s monster flick The Blob moves ahead, reports are circulating that Samuel L Jackson is to star...

Earlier this year, we heard that Con Air director Simon West is set to head up a remake of 50s monster flick, The Blob - the first since the underrated  1988 iteration directed by Chuck Russell.

Hollywood's trade papers are now reporting that Samuel L Jackson is set to play the lead in West's oozing remake.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson will play "a biochemistry professor attempting to thwart the other-worldly predator discovered deep within the earth."

This sounds like a change of pace from the 1958 film, where the blob was delivered by meteorite, or the more paranoid 80s version, where it turned out to be manmade.

In an interview with Den Of Geek earlier this year, West described his Blob movie as "more sci-fi" and "more sophisticated" than its predecessors, »

Movie Review – Spy (2015)

13 May 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.

Synopsis:

A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Melissa McCarthy has really blown up over the past few years after her hilarious performance in Bridesmaids. Since then she’s gone on to headline a ton of different films and has started to make herself a household name. Of course, not all of these films have been winners. Last year’s Tammy was a dreadful outing and 2013’s Identity Thief where she starred alongside Jason Bateman was pretty rough as well. It seems that when she’s paired up with the right people it can be a comedic success, which was the case with The Heat which also starred Sandra Bullock and was directed by Paul Feig, »
