Joel Edgerton Plays The Good Cop In Felony Trailer

8 July 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joel Edgerton has begun to carve out an excellent niche for himself the mainstream cinematic world. He’s had bang-up parts in Warrior, The Great Gatsby, and Zero Dark Thirty, and will soon be seen as the Pharaoh in Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings. Now, the actor has returned to his native Australia for his most recent film, the tense cop thriller Felony.

Edgerton plays Mal, a celebrated detective injured in the line of duty who ends up in a struggle between himself and two other detectives (Jai Courtney and Tom Wilkinson) over the truth about an accident that has placed a child in a coma. The trailer tells us everything we need to know – possibly even a little too much, given the nature of the film. Nevertheless, it gives a complete picture of the film and the possible routes that the narrative could take.

First Trailer for 'Felony' Has Arrived

8 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Austrailian crime drama Felony now has a trailer. The film features the talents of Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson, Melissa George, and Jai Courtney. In the film, which has been playing well at various festival screenings, Edgerton plays narcotic detective Malcolm "Mal" Toohey. Injured in the line of duty, but still on the job, Toohey finds himself in a moral dilemma when he accidentally knocks a boy off his bike during a sleepy drive home. Does he report the accident, revealing himself to be the driver, or cover it up in an attempt to save his own career?

Edgerton also co-wrote the script. As of now, the film only has an Australian premiere set- which is August 28- but it's expected to get a wider, international release later on.

Watch: First International Trailer For Police Thriller 'Felony' Starring Joel Edgerton

8 July 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Unlike his “Warrior” co-star Tom Hardy, Australian actor Joel Edgerton has stuck to being part of smaller films and taking smaller roles like his outing as a member of Seal Team Six in “Zero Dark Thirty," Baz Luhrmann’s gaudy adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” notwithstanding. Edgerton’s latest is the Australian film “Felony” which, in addition to starring in, he both wrote and produced. The film’s first trailer and poster have both arrived online for your keen minds to investigate. Co-starring Jai Courtney (in his native accent), Tom Wilkinson and Melissa George, the thriller centers on Edgerton as celebrated detective Mal, who sets off a tense struggle between himself and two other detectives (Courtney and Wilkinson) over the truth of the accident that sent a child into a coma. While the trailer seems to spell things out a little too clearly, it does promise that the four leads »

Indie Trailer Sunday: 'Felony' Starring and Written by Joel Edgerton

22 June 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He didn't mean to do anything bad... I'll get you through this." Today's indie trailer that comes highly recommended is the official trailer for Matthew Saville's Felony, a little indie film written by, produced by and starring Joel Edgerton (last seen in The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty, Odd Life of Timothy Green). He's joined by the always fierce Tom Wilkinson, Melissa George, and Jai Courtney in one of his best roles yet. Edgerton plays a cop who gets into big trouble in a late night accident, creating a troublesome situation at work and at home. I first caught this film at Tiff last year and it's solid, with a few strong performances and great score, hopefully it gets released. The trailer shows a lot, but doesn't ruin everything.

21 May 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Love and war over the power of literature versus painting take center stage in Fred Schepisi’s witty romantic drama, Words and Pictures, opening in theaters May 23rd.  Battle lines are drawn when a prep school English teacher and one-time literary star Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) challenges a new teacher and once celebrated abstract painter Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche) to disprove his conviction that the art of the written word trumps the visual arts in its ability to convey meaning, ideas, and emotion.  The declaration of war galvanizes their students, but as Marcus and Delsanto square off, they suddenly realize they may have met their match. In an exclusive interview, Schepisi talked about the appeal of Gerald Dipego’s complex screenplay, the ways it touches on the impact of today’s technology and our obsession with social media, how he landed Owen and Binoche in the lead roles, the emotional »

It's just one week until the nation's biggest telly stars turn out for the TV BAFTAs, and in between prepping their acceptance speeches and practising their fake laughs for Graham Norton's opening monologue, they've also got to sort out their look for the red carpet.

Digital Spy recently attended a BAFTA showcase featuring the ceremony's official partners - House of Fraser, Mac Cosmetics, Carat* jewellery, celebrity hairdresser Mark Hill and St Tropez - for a sneak peek at this year's styles. What outfits, hairdos and makeup will the stars be rocking on the red carpet next Sunday (May 18)?

Of course, with any red carpet, the focus is on what the celebrity attendees are wearing. Backstage, it's the same story - a star's fashion choice will entirely dictate what direction the rest of the styling team go in.

Frank Khalfoun Reopens Amityville

24 March 2014 2:04 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's nine years since we last experienced an Amityville Horror, in the form of Andrew Douglas's remake with Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George. Since then there's been the brilliant documentary My Amityville Horror, picking up with the real-life Amityville "survivor" Daniel Lutz to genuinely alarming effect, but more familiarly fictionalised versions of the story have been languishing in development hell for years. Hannibal Classics' Amityville Legacy remains there, but the Weinsteins' The Amityville Tapes has just resurfaced and finally been given the green light. Franck Khalfoun (the Maniac remake) is directing, and Bd are also reporting that Jennifer Jason Leigh will star.This Amityville has been in the works since before all the problems at MGM (remember those?), and comes as part of the Weinsteins' / Dimension's Miramax deal to revisit their "library" and produce sequels to established properties.Hannibal's Legacy was going to be based on an elderly Amityville »
