Deadpool review by Paul Heath, February, 2016. There’s no denying it, Deadpool has had one of the best PR and marketing campaigns we’ve ever seen. It was so good that we were all starting to worry that the film may not live up to the same standard. Not only must it have been a concern for the millions of fans across the planet, but the film’s star too. Ryan Reynolds already has one dud behind him, the Martin Campbell-directed Green Lantern, and he cannot afford another. We needn’t have worried. He certainly wasn’t. Deadpool is awesome in every way.

Two decades after GoldenEye, star Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are looking to team up again, albeit for a very different kind of movie. They’re joining forces for Across the River and Into the Trees, based on Ernest Hemingway‘s 1950 novel about an older man who travels to an exotic location and strikes up a romance with a much […]

Delivering one of the best James Bond films with "Goldeneye" twenty years ago, actor Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are now reportedly re-teaming to tackle a film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's 1950 last full-length novel "Across the River and Into the Trees".
BAFTA winner Peter Flannery ("The Devil's Whore") and Oscar-nominee Michael Radford ("Il Postino") penned the adaptation of this story of an American officer (Brosnan) serving in Italy just after WW2.
Facing news of his terminal illness with stoicism, he commandeers a military driver to help visit his old haunts in Venice. As his plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a young countess begins to kindle hope of renewal.
Robert MacLean, John Smallcombe, Kirstin Roegner and Claudia Bluemhuber will produce. Filming aims to begin in Italy in October. Brosnan and Campbell are currently working together on the Jackie Chan-led action thriller "The Foreigner" which is currently filming in London. »

Star Ryan Reynolds is making his move into the more fitting role of Deadpool this week, but in case you want to revisit the better-off-forgotten first attempt at a major superhero role, we take a pass at 2011's Green Lantern in this month's Movie CliffsNotes. Director Martin Campbell took a swing with this superhero adaptation that failed to connect with audiences, due largely to some fairly ho-hum... Read More »

What do you get when you team up James Bond with director Martin Campbell? Only some of the best installments of the 007 franchise, namely Goldeneye and Casino Royale. But what about when it's James Bond without the franchise? Campbell and Goldeneye's Bond, Pierce Brosnan, are set to reteam for two movies, one of them a newly announced Ernest Hemingway adaptation. First, though, they're currently in the midst of shooting The Foreigner. The action thriller, based on Stephen Leather's 1992 novel The Chinaman, also stars Jackie Chan as a London restaurant owner who takes revenge on the Irish Republican Army, having lost his daughter to the terrorist organization. Brosnan plays a lawyer with ties to the Ira whom Chan's character hounds for...

Word comes by way of Screen Daily, revealing that the Oscar-nominated actor will star opposite fellow Briton Gerard Butler in the studio’s long-gestating feature, which is set to be offered to buyers at next week’s Berlin Film Festival. Adapted from George Wallace and Don Keith’s acclaimed novel Firing Point, Hunter Killer centers on a rogue Russian general who, upon kidnapping the country’s president, looks to spark a global conflict on the scale of the Cold War.
Despite developing a tendency of portraying Russians on screen (see Air Force One and Child 44), Oldman has boarded the thriller to oversee the efforts of a Navy Seal unit – Gerard Butler’s Joe Glass included – to scupper those aforementioned terrorist plans. »
