"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.
If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.
Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.
Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »

Chicago – Opening this weekend at Chicago’s Facets Cinematheque after a week on VOD is “Starred Up,” a bloody-knuckles British prison drama that was also a favorite at the most recent Chicago Critics Film Festival. This is an at-times beastly movie that follows in the line of previous character-driven jail films like “Chopper” (starring Eric Bana), or Tom Hardy’s raging breakout movie “Bronson”.
While this movie may not have the narrative muscle of these references, this odyssey into a hidden world does feature two actors well on their way to becoming global obsessions, Jack O’Connell and Ben Mendelsohn.
O’Connell plays Eric Love, a raging teenager dumped into an adult prison to carry out a drug-related sentence. After asserting his power to his fellow inmates with an act of violence (and nearly killing someone albeit unintentionally), he makes a connection with his father Neville (Ben Mendelsohn) who »

In the space of a week I've finally caught up to David Mackenzie's "Starred Up," which premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival and made its way to theaters and VOD via Tribeca Film last weekend, and Yann Demange's "'71," which premiered at the Berlinale in February and finally resurfaced again in Telluride last week. The common denominator is actor Jack O'Connell, and with his major break-out project "Unbroken" set for release this December, the question becomes clear: what trajectory will this promising new career take? The entertainment industry is always on the lookout for the next big thing. Actors like Sam Worthington, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Russell Crowe, Eric Bana and Tom Hardy have found themselves at this crossroads in the past (funny they always seem to be imports), boasting a few strong foreign indies and a huge Hollywood production on the horizon meant to send a career soaring. »

Following the well-deserved critical and financial success of her feature-length directorial debut In A World…, it seems that multi-hyphenate Lake Bell has joined the ranks of in-demand directors. She will next step behind the camera for The Emperor’s Children – an adaptation of the 2006 novel of the same name, by American author Claire Messud.
The book, which was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2006, follows three privileged and educated friends living in Manhattan in the months before the devastating terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Despite their advantageous positions, each of them struggles to achieve in the face of the excessive expectations placed upon them. The book is being adapted for the screen by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha) and, though Baumbach was once rumoured to be taking the director’s chair as well, that seat will now be filled by Bell.
The adaptation will be produced by Brian Grazer and »

Three young boys plan to start a revolution, with a little help from Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara, in the new international trailer for Stephen Daldry‘s “Trash.” Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), Gardo (Eduardo Luis) and Raphael (Rickson Tevez) are three young boys living in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who scour their city's massive garbage dumps for anything salvageable that would allow them to survive another day. Going through a discarded wallet looking for money, they find some mysterious documents instead.

This is dream team stuff, people. The Wrap reports that actress/writer/director Lake Bell has been tapped to direct the big screen adaptation of Claire Messud‘s Man Booker Prize listed bestselling novel “The Emperor’s Children.” Bell will direct from Noah Baumbach‘s script, which has basically just been sitting around for whole years waiting for someone to make it into a real movie. Set in New York City just before and after 9/11, the novel centers on a trio of Brown University pals (who maybe don’t like each other as much as they should) who are just trying to make their way (often, their very misguided way) around life in the big city. The events of 9/11 change that, of course, and the novel is an unsentimental look at how we experience tragedy, especially the wide-ranging and extremely unexpected kind (as the pages tick by and the days move forward and the inevitability of what »

Lake Bell broke out in a big way last year with her directorial debut “In A World…” in which she dealt with Hollywood sexism via the very small world of voiceover artists. It was very funny and we were big fans, calling it “a low key charmer” in our review. Now, Bell has chosen a followup that involves some serious pedigree. THR reports the actor-turned-director will direct an adaptation of Claire Messud’s “The Emperor’s Children.” If Messud’s novel, which focuses on “three entitled but unsuccessful late twentysomethings who orbit the life of a famous journalist in the months before and after the events of 9/11,” sounds familiar, it’s because Noah Baumbach had penned a draft and was planning on directing an adaptation in the summer of 2010 with Keira Knightley, Eric Bana and Richard Gere attached to star. Unfortunately, financing didn't come through and in 2011, “Crazy Heart” director Scott Cooper jumped. »

After making a successful move into directing with voice-over comedy In A World… Lake Bell has tracked down a follow-up. She’s now on board to make the adaptation of Claire Messud’s novel The Emperor’s Children for Imagine.Messud’s book, unusually for a title in development, hit shelves way back in 2007. The story follows three Brown College graduates in their late 20s looking ahead to their lives with no little trepidation. The story takes place a few months before and then a few months after 9/11 in New York.Noah Baumbach was attached back in 2010, wrote a script and was in the process of looking for a cast, with Keira Knightley, Richard Gere and Eric Bana all mooted. Bell may give the screenplay her own spin, or she may decide to direct it as is, but it remains to be seen if she’ll push it closer to the screen than Baumbach managed. »
It's Bank Holiday Monday, and that can mean only one thing... parking yourself on the sofa for an epic movie marathon. There really is something for everyone, from shaggy dogs to sorcerers and space adventures.
Digital Spy rounds up nine films worth watching on TV today.
1. Beethoven - 9.25am, ITV2
Charles Grodin and Bonnie Hunt head up the Newton family, who find their lives flipped upside down with the arrival of a puppy who swiftly grows into a slobbering, troublemaking St Bernard. This is just about the best way to kick off Bank Holiday Monday!
2. Flash Gordon - 11.15am, More4
Arriving hot on the heels of Star Wars, this sci-fi adventure got panned by critics on initial release but has since acquired cult status thanks to some booming performances from thesps like Timothy Dalton and Brian Blessed, and Queen's thundering soundtrack.
Proclaiming your newest horror movie is based on true life events isn't anything new for movie studios, to my mind it reaches back to 1979's The Amityville Horror, but with the recent run of 'based on real life events' horror movies, including The Conjuring and The Quiet Ones, I for one am getting sick of getting hit over the head with this trend. The latest movie to proudly proclaim the spooky goings on you see are rooted in the real life is Deliver Us From Evil, based on New York police officer Ralph Sarchie's (played here by Eric Bana) account of a case where he came face to face with demonic possession. Coming from director Scott Derrickson, who brought us the similary 'based on a true story' The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister (one of the finest horror movies in recent memory in my opinion), Deliver Us From Evil »

Justin Lin's directorial future continues to pile up with new projects, but it looks like the follow-up to The Bourne Legacy will still be his next film. And now what comes after that 2015 film has been decided as Lin will helm the 3D remake of Jet Li's film debut, Shaolin Temple. Deadline reports that Lin will direct the film from a screenplay by Andrew Dominik. Dominik is best known for scripting and directing the Eric Bana crime flick Chopper and the Brad Pitt sleeper Killing Me Softly. »

Deliver Us from Evil is an unholy mishmash of hardboiled cop thriller, Exorcist/Omen-style horror hokum and, most bizarrely, Jim Morrison-inspired psychedelia. The redoubtable Eric Bana plays New York cop Ralph Sarchie with an intensity that rekindles memories of the Sidney Lumet films of the 1970s. The film itself may be silly in the extreme but his performance is in deadly earnest. »
Currently on the set of Sinister 2, before he heads off to direct Marvel's Doctor Strange (and you won't be surprised to hear that's a movie that we couldn't explore in this interview), he spared us time for a chat about what he's done, and what he's up to. Without further ado...
Welcome to the world of international staggered release dates! We get Deliver Us From Evil this week in the UK, whereas it had a July 4th weekend release in the Us. It seems to me that it's a more natural fit over here than there.

8.1 Deep Breath
Well, Peter Capaldi is really rather great. It seems logical to start there, as he's top of the list of big, beaming positives in Deep Breath, the starting point for Doctor Who series 8. From the moment he utters the word "shush" to a typically militaristic Strax, there's little doubt that the newly redesigned Tardis - now with books and dinosaur slobber - is in safe hands.
It's too early to call definitely, of course, but on the evidence of the (surprisingly) limited screen time he's given in Deep Breath, Capaldi is the Doctor we wanted him to be. Steeped in the tradition of the older Doctors, from his costume to his demeanour - noting himself that he's not got a »
A rote police procedural conducted by a cardboard movie cop investigating a supposedly demonic evil that simply cannot compete with nonsupernatural reality. I’m “biast” (pro): love Eric Bana
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Somebody please get Eric Bana (Lone Survivor) a nice juicy TV role where he can actually create a character worthy of his talent and intense presence, rather than being forced to shuffle — yet again — through another underwritten genre pawn. This time out he’s NYPD sergeant Ralph Sarchie, who falls into teaming up with “undercover” Jesuit priest Mendoza (Édgar Ramírez: The Counsellor) to investigate some weird demonic-possession shit going down in the South Bronx. (This sidelines Sarchie’s goofy partner, Butler [Joel McHale: Blended], though not so much that Butler cannot ultimately fulfill his own genre-pawn purpose.) Talk to any actual »
