Jennifer Beals on Playing the Secretly Biracial Star Margo Taft in ‘The Last Tycoon’

Jennifer Beals on Playing the Secretly Biracial Star Margo Taft in ‘The Last Tycoon’
One of the unexpected joys of Amazon’s “The Last Tycoon,” which debuted in July, is actress Jennifer Beals’ turn as Margo Taft, an ambitious screen siren who is caught between feuding studio heads Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer) and Louis B. Mayer (Saul Rubinek, playing the real-life mogul behind MGM). Margo’s storyline is the liveliest of “The Last Tycoon,” largely due to the vim of Beals herself — after finagling her way into a Brady picture, she demands that the director come to her dressing room and drop his pants, so that she can take the measure of the man who might try to order her around. (Margo doesn’t make the poor sucker go through with it — but the point, as she explains with a sultry air, is that he was willing to.)

But ultimately Margo is nearly undone by a long-buried secret that comes to light mid-season. When her beloved maid Lucille (L. Scott Caldwell) dies

"We all have it coming, kid." Any big fans of this film out there? Clint Eastwood's Best Picture-winning classic western Unforgiven is being re-released with a brand new, restored 4K print. Eastwood was just at the Cannes Film Festival last month, presenting the restored version of film in the Cannes Classics section and talking at a masterclass seminar during the festival.

The film features Eastwood as Bill Munny, with Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman, Richard Harris, Jaimz Woolvett, Saul Rubinek, Frances Fisher, Anna Levine, David Mucci, and Rob Campbell. It was first released in 1992. Hopefully this 4K version will end up in Us theaters after first playing in France this summer. Watch the official trailer below.

Star Trek The Next Generation: 10 great guest performances

Juliette Harrisson Nov 8, 2016

We salute some of the finest guest stars of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Some episodes of television are elevated by the performance of the regular actors, and with a star of the calibre of Patrick Stewart, Star Trek: The Next Generation is not short of such episodes. Equally important, however, are the performances of guest actors brought in for a one-off appearance who elevate any scenes in which they take part and work with the regular actors to create something really memorable. This list celebrates some of those performances.

Movie Review – Gridlocked (2016)

Gridlocked, 2016.

Directed by Allan Ungar.

Starring Dominic Purcell, Cody Hackman, Stephen Lang, Vinnie Jones, Trish Stratus, Danny Glover, Saul Rubinek and Richard Gunn.

Synopsis:

Former Swat leader David Hendrix and hard-partying movie star Brody Walker must cut their ride-along short when a police training facility is attacked by a team of mercenaries.

They say not to judge a book by its cover, and that’s a good piece of advice. But here’s another one: learn to look for the red flags. When staring down a movie like Gridlocked on your Netflix queue, your local Redbox, or wherever else you may come across it, it’s an important skill to be able to read the signs that identify this as something not to be given a second look. Is the cover a generic, unremarkable photoshop job? Is the cast populated by c-action regulars, with perhaps one once-recognizable industry veteran thrown

Gridlocked: Check Out The Red Band Teaser For Indie Action Flick

We were big fans of Allan Ungar's Gridlocked - a deliberate throwback to the pulpy Dtv action films of the 90s starring Dominic Purcell, Stephen Lang, Trish Stratus, Danny Glover, Vinnie Jones and Saul Rubinek - back when it premiered at Fantastic Fest and with the picture due for release on June 14th there's a red band teaser out there that showcases why, exactly, we had such a good time with it. Hint: It has to do with guns, explosions, and people getting punched in the face. It may not be high art but Gridlocked has no pretensions of being anything other than what it is and if what you're looking for is some beefy old school action then you've come to the right place....

Action-Packed Red-Band Trailer for Gridlocked with Stephen Lang, Dominic Purcell, and Vinnie Jones

I had no idea this action film Gridlocked even existed until a Gt reader emailed me this red-band trailer for it. The trailer is insanely action-packed, and it looks like a hell of an entertaining movie that follows a former Swat leader named David Hendrix and hard-partying movie star named Brody Walker who are on a ride-along together. That ride-along is cut short when a police training facility is attacked by a team of mercenaries. The trailer sure does a good job of getting you pumped up! The vibe of the film could be likened to The Raid, only without the insane martial arts. 

The film has got a kickass cast that includes Dominic Purcell (Prison Break), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Vinnie Jones (Snatch) , Cody Hackman (Tapped Out), Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon), WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus, and Saul Rubinek (True Romance).

The movie will be released in the Us on June 14th.

Deadly Pleasures: Santa’S Slay

  • DailyDead
[Originally appeared in the December 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine.] ’Tis the season to be nicer, more forgiving and charitable toward those less fortunate. Keeping these ideals in mind, this month is the perfect opportunity to celebrate my favorite terrible (but so terrible that I can’t help but love it) holiday film of all-time: Santa’s Slay.

Directed by David Steiman (who has yet to helm another film since—poor guy), Santa’s Slay stars Bill Goldberg as a murderous Kris Kringle. He returns to the sleepy town of Hell Township with revenge on his mind, after being forced to be nice to children for a thousand years when he lost a bet with an angel a millennium ago. There’s a bit of Santa-related mythology thrown in, but what makes Santa’s Slay worthwhile is all the over-the-top raucous action and pitch-black humor.

It’s fair to say that the film is about as subtle as a monster truck rally,

Will Phase Three End the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Ant-man hits theaters on Friday, and with its release marks the kick-off for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Depending on how big of a fan you are, this news will come as either exciting, or painfully boring. A surprise appearance by Agent Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Iron Man‘s credits enthralled millions of filmgoers and teased a project geeks only dreamed about. Two box-office-record-breaking Avenger films later and the shared universe has proven itself an unparalleled success in terms of commercial filmmaking, but after the long wait to see Tony, Cap, Thor, and Hulk take on Thanos is realized, the streak of Marvel characters met with open arms and another $100 million weekend may be coming to an end.

12 movies in, and Thanos, the big baddie the movies have been building toward, still has no Infinity Stones (it goes without saying he isn’t very good at this

100 Essential Action Scenes: Shootouts

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Shootouts, unlike any other type of action scenes, put death in the forefront of the audience’s mind. Whereas a car chase draws the attention onto the race, or a fight scene onto the pursuit of victory, shootouts test the mortality of our protagonists and anti-heroes. It’s more than just a hail of bullets that matters on screen, it’s who those bullets are clipping down or propping up. Legends can be made in a flurry of lead. The last man standing after the fray isn’t always the best or

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Phenomenal Allen as Too-Good-to-Be-True U.S. V.P. Candidate in Highly Watchable But Ultimately Coy Political Thriller

'The Contender' movie hero: Joan Allen as the virtuous Sen. Laine Hanson. 'The Contender' movie: Exceptional Joan Allen in intriguing but ultimately wimpy political drama "Principles only mean anything when we stick by them when they're inconvenient," says Senator Laine Hanson, played by Joan Allen in Rod Lurie's The Contender. Senator Hanson should know. In Lurie's political drama, the poor Democratic senator is grilled by a Republican inquisitor with a bad hairdo (Gary Oldman) who wants to prevent at all costs her being confirmed as the next Vice President of the United States. Even if that means destroying Hanson's political career by making public the senator's alleged participation in an orgy during her college days.* Now, why such hatred? Well, the Republican watchdog is certain that the U.S. president (Jeff Bridges) has chosen Sen. Hanson because of her gender instead of her qualifications for the job. Adding insult to injury,
