Remember ten years ago when you would be in HMV looking at a DVD box set of something like The West Wing and then unfolding the twenty pound note in your pocket and wondering whether to part with all that cash for something you had never seen? You had just heard that someone somewhere liked it, but for that £30 you could get two films like Bad Boys 2 and Kill Bill volume 1!
These were difficult times my friends, and more often than not £30 would go down the drain and you would watch three episodes of whatever series it was and decide it wasn’t for you. Well thanks to modern technology and its mission to kill DVD, Blu-Ray and whatever other physical media dinosaur you prefer, this dilemma is a thing of the past.
Nowadays you can go onto Lovefilm, Netflix, BT Vision or whatever else and stream whole seasons of TV for almost nothing. »

Last month, Downey, his producing partner/wife Susan Downey, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Disney Studios boss Alan Horn and "Iron Man 3" director Shane Black sat down to lunch to celebrate their latest box-office bonanza, but also ostensibly to talk about Downey's deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
There's nothing on the books concerning Downey and "Iron Man 4" and he's reportedly still in negotiations about a second and third Avengers movie.
In an interview promoting his Shakespeare passion project, "Much Ado About Nothing," the man who helped carry "The Avengers" to over $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales didn't mince words about Downey's potential return.

Universal has decided to release the upcoming Afghanistan war drama in select cinemas in New York and Los Angeles from December 27, reports Deadline.
It will then be rolled out nationwide from January 10. The move will not only qualify the film for the Academy Awards, but will also gain critical and audience word-of-mouth via other award ceremonies.
Peter Berg will direct the project, which tells the true story of four Navy SEALs who battled with enemy Afghan forces while on a covert mission to stop a Taliban operative.
It is based on the book Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell, the Navy Seal portrayed by Wahlberg.
I wasn't able to get around to another 2014 Oscar prediction update today as a result of the podcast, a movie screening and writing my review of The East, but perhaps that's for the best as I was planning on taking a look at the Best Actor category and we just may have another name to add to the list... Mark Wahlberg. Yes, the star of Contraband, Pain & Gain and the forthcoming Transformers 4. The very actor that was nominated for his role in Martin Scorsese's The Departed and starred in films such as Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights and was part of the nominated producing team that made The Fighter, which he also starred in. This time around we're looking at Wahlberg as the lead actor in Lone Survivor, a true story feature based on the failed mission "Operation Red Wing" which will see Wahlberg as Marcus Luttrell, »

There is something inherently ominous with the aesthetic of all those camera-feeds in security conscious Londontown. Furious 6's London setting failed to properly make use of them, but they seem to be at the heart of the matter for Jon Crowley's (Boy A, Intermission) mature information-technology thriller Closed Circuit. Eric Bana and Ciarán Hinds are aiming to catch urban terrorists (instead of planting the bombs as they did together in Spielberg's Munich) with the help of Rebecca Hall, Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent. Looking to be a smidgen of 24, a hint of Bourne, and a dollop of Page 8, Closed Circuit seems to have a lot on offer with its trailer, hopefully the film with follow through in an appropriate adult fashion.Two ex-lovers find their loyalties tested and their lives at risk...

When Peter Berg's upcoming war drama "Lone Survivor" was recently given a January 10, 2014 release date, we have to admit, we immediately figured it to be another Mark Wahlberg, early winter programmer (see "Contraband" and "Broken City") and we put it in the back of our minds. But now, it looks like we'll have to sit up and pay a bit of attention as this could be mixing it up in the awards season race. Universal has decided to give the movie a New York and Los Angeles run starting on December 27th, before it platforms out to other cities. So does this one have the goods? Well, it has a helluva cast with Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch and Eric Bana joining Wahlberg in the true story tale based on the 2005 incident that found Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell and his team under attack from Taliban forces in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan. »

If recent spy thrillers (and, ahem, Fast Six) have taught us anything, it’s that nefarious people in positions of power are always able to access government-run closed circuit videos for their own means. But what if it’s the actual government that’s collecting tape like a geeky collector at a neighborhood flea market? That’s the question (sort of, not really at all) at the heart of John Crowley‘s Closed Circuit. The film sounds like a relatively straightforward thriller (albeit one with a stellar cast that includes Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Julia Stiles, and Jim Broadbent) with some added sex appeal. Oh, and also this closed circuit thing. Bana and Hall star as lawyers (and ex-lovers) who get tasked with defending a man accused of a terrorist act that left many dead (he allegedly rigged a bus with explosives and set it off in a crowded area). It seems like a relatively thankless gig »

Focus Features has premiered the new trailer for "Closed Circuit," a crime thriller from director John Crowley ("Boy A") with a script penned by Steve Knight ("Eastern Promises"). The drama stars Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall as lawyers and ex-lovers tasked with defending a man accused of setting off a bomb in London in a treacherous terrorist case. Rounding out the action is Julia Stiles, who plays a hard-hitting New York Times journalist who is more knowledgeable about the case than she lets on at first. The film rounds out the crop of summer thrillers and action movies with an August 28 release, and will hopefully inject some smart drama into the otherwise notoriously lifeless summer movie season. Watch trailer below: »

While we all hear the title Closed Circuit and hope it means that we’re finally getting a Short Circuit threequel, alas we’re not. Nope, Johnny 5 won’t be taking on terrorists in this upcoming thriller from director John Crawley. Luckily, Eric Bana is on the case and you can check out his mixed accent and broodiness in the latest trailer, below.
Bana plays a high profile lawyer who together with his ex-girlfriend, played by Rebecca Hall, finds himself on the defense team for a terrorism suspect. With a starry cast in tow the trailer points towards the flick being an intelligent alternative to the usual popcorn fare offered up during the summer season. Joining Bana and Hall are Ciaran Hinds, Jim Broadbent, Anne-Marie Duff, Julia Stiles, Riz Ahmed, Kenneth Cranham and Denis Moschitto.
The preview is a smidgen spoilery. Littered with shady encounters on park benches Closed Circuit »

Steve Knight is a man who enjoys taking concerns such as immigration, cultural differences and whether Robert Powell and Jasper Carrott can be an efficient law-keeping team and turning them into effective dramas and thrillers (okay, not the Powell and Carrott bit, but he did co-create silly sitcom The Detectives). His latest script is Closed Circuit, which John Crowley has now brought to the screen. Check out the trailer over at Apple’s site.Circuit finds lawyers Martin (Eric Bana) and Claudia (Rebecca Hall) thrown together when they’re assigned to be the defence team for an accused terrorist following a bombing in a London market.As if the high-profile case weren’t enough, the pair also used to be a couple, which creates an extra layer of tension.

I don.t know how it directly ties into my film obsessions exactly, but I love movies based in any way on cameras being used to film things. It.s why I.m a found footage apologist and what keeps films like David Lynch.s Lost Highway and Michael Haneke.s Caché and Benny.s Video stuck in my head so many years after I.ve seen them. While those films. thrills are in no way related to what I assume John Crowley.s Closed Circuit will offer, they set the precedent that gets me in the front door for a terrorism-fueled thriller, a genre of film that hits me in a different way than it used to. But even without the titular closed circuit cameras. involvement, this looks like multi-layered piece that won.t rely on any one element to excite audiences. Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall play ex-lovers »
For fans waiting on the return of Homeland or The Americans, the new trailer for the film Closed Circuit is sure to prove intriguing.

But, as tends to happen, they soon discover nothing is as it seems and their client may be a terrorist. Or maybe he’s working for the U.K. government to help catch other terrorists? Fans will be able to get the full story when the movie, which also stars Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent, »

Closed Circut is the new film by Boy A director John Crowley, and it looks fantastic! The movie boasts an impressive cast that includes Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Riz Ahmed, Jim Broadbent, Kenneth Cranham, Anne-Marie Duff, Ciarán Hinds, and Julia Stiles.
This international terrorist thriller follows "two ex-lovers, Martin (Bana) and Claudia (Hall), who find their loyalties tested and their lives at risk when they are joined together on the defense team in a terrorism trial." I really like Crowley's detailed and meticulous filmmaking style. The guy knows how to make great international thrillers and build suspense.
The movie comes out on August 28th.
