Star Rachelle Lefevre discusses working with two of her fellow cast members, Ryan Phillippe and eight-year-old Briana Roy in an exclusive clip from the special features included with Reclaim, on Blu-ray and DVD November 18.

Rachelle Lefevre plays Shannon, an American who travels abroad with her husband Steven (Ryan Phillippe) to adopt their daughter Nina (Briana Roy), although things go awry quickly when Nina turns up missing. They quickly discover that all is not what it seems with the adoption agency - and find themselves in a fight for their lives when they encounter Benjamin (John Cusack) and Reigert (Jacki Weaver), the culprits behind a high-stakes human-trafficking ring. To expose the truth and save their daughter, Steven and Shannon will have to risk everything... including their lives.

Rachelle Lefevre reveals that working with Ryan Phillippe helped her see aspects of her performance that she normally wouldn't have, since her co-star is also a filmmaker himself, »

The long planned project, which will focus on the grandson of the legendary [fictional] boxer Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers in the classic movies) who will be played by ‘Fruitvale’ and upcoming Fantastic Four star Michael B.

The word on the street is that we’ll be seeing Creed towards the end of next year.

The Nostalgia Files: ‘The Hard Way’ (1991)

6 November 2014 5:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Hard Way

Written by Daniel Pyne and Lem Dobbs

Directed by John Badham

USA, 1991

Thanks to the popularity of Lethan Weapon, the action comedy genre thrived in the 1980s and 1990s. The genre combines fast paced thrills and violence with witty one-liners and often ridiculous comedic scenarios. For some reason, the 80s were a veritable breeding ground for many of these types of films and the trend continued well into the 90s. For instance, 1991 saw the release of a movie that pretty much turned the genre on its head. That film is the buddy cop adventure The Hard Way and it is not only a smart action thrill ride with buckets of fresh humor but also a smart commentary on real life police work and method acting.

Directed by John Badham (WarGames, Saturday Night Fever, Short Circuit), The Hard Way pretty much has it all. It focuses on two »

‘The Lookalike’ Review: Everyone Has a Price In This Ridiculous But Not Quite Ridiculous Enough Thriller

6 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A cast can go a long way towards making a mediocre movie watchable, and while it’s always best to have a script and direction to match sometimes the best you can hope for is a parade of familiar, engaging and talented faces. Several such faces appear in the overly busy and cluttered new film, The Lookalike, and — wait for it — they make this mediocre movie watchable. A pair of drug dealing/club owning crime bosses (Steven Bauer, John Corbett) have a deal with a major supplier (John Savage) to provide him with a particular girl (Gillian Jacobs) for a night of expensive fornication in exchange for his drug business. When she dies in a freak chandelier accident they’re forced to find a passable substitute, and through a series of convenient coincidences involving their bartender Joe (Jerry O’Connell) and his brother Holt (Justin Long) they settle on a young woman named Lacey (Jacobs).

Watch Gillian Jacobs Land The Role Of A Lifetime In The Lookalike Trailer

14 October 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After donning tusks for Kevin Smith, Justin Long is back in the saddle – but this time he won’t be morphing into anyone or anything else. For Robert Gray’s indie thriller The Lookalike, that responsibility lands firmly on Gillian Jacobs’ shoulders.

In what sounds like a brilliant matrix of character, plot and nuttiness, the story follows a couple of gangsters (Jerry O’Connell and John Corbett) who are keen for a deal to go through with crime boss, William Spinks. When the object of his desire, Sadie, is killed, his goons enlist an aspiring actress (Jacobs) via an addict (Long) to fool Spinks and ensure the masterplan goes off without a hitch. Also along for the ride are Scottie Thompson, Gina Gershon, Luiz Guzman and Steven Bauer.

Judging by that synopsis alone, the flick has all the makings of a cult classic right off the bat. As is often »

Gillian Jacobs is a femme fatale in the trailer for The Lookalike

14 October 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Movies tend to get labeled as unworthy of your viewing time unless they are either big budget studio affairs or film festival entries. But, there are a good deal of movies that don't fit into either category that are enjoyable and well made movies. The Lookalike looks like one of those movies. Starring a pretty impressive cast including Justin Long, Jerry O'Connell, Gillian Jacobs, John Corbett, Luis Guzman, and Gina Gershon, The Lookalike is one of those movies you will likely encounter »

Denzel Washington Proves as Elusive as His Character at ‘The Equalizer’ Premiere

23 September 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A veritable who’s-who of cinema’s tough guys in 2014 – including Ethan Hawke, Luis Guzman, Michael K. Williams and filmmaker J.C. Chandor – came out to the Lincoln Square Regal Imax for the premiere of Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer” on Monday night.

Among the stars, the mood was jubilant, a celebration in and of itself of Fuqua’s first collaboration with Denzel Washington since their vaunted “Training Day.” On the red carpet, Washington winced playfully as “Saturday Night Live’s” Jay Pharoah teasingly hollered out: “King Kong Ain’T Got S— On Me!” – an unmistakable reference to Washington’s 2001 performance (which won him the Academy Award for Best Actor.)

The Equalizer” is Fuqua’s first formal test run into Imax, according to Imax’s Greg Foster. “We’re pitching him actively to shoot his next movie with our cameras. His style of filmmaking very much aligns itself to who and »

Film Review: ‘Reclaim’

19 September 2014 12:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Yet another thriller preying on Americans’ travel xenophobia and audience fears of losing a child — two of the genre’s more pervasive, exploitative hooks in recent years — “Reclaim” casts Ryan Phillippe and Rachelle Lefevre as Chicago yuppies who travel to Puerto Rico to adopt a Haitian orphan. Little do they realize until it’s too late that the operation is a scam, of which their vaguely sleazy hotel neighbor (John Cusack) is one malevolent part. . Opening on 10 scattered U.S. screens Sept. 19, simultaneous with VOD release, this looks to be a blip on the theatrical horizon, but should score decent home-format sales as a passable name-cast time killer.

Having suffered a car accident that cost her a pregnancy and the ability to conceive again, Shannon Mayers (Lefevre) is in Puerto Rico with her husband, Steven (Phillippe), to pick up the earthquake-orphaned Haitian girl they’ve arranged to adopt through Intl. »

Reclaim Trailer With John Cusack, Ryan Phillippe and Rachelle Lefevre

6 August 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

And just like that, there’s a new John Cusack movie.  Technically, Reclaim seems to focus more on the beleaguered would-be parent characters of Ryan Phillippe and Rachelle Lefevre, but there’s do denying the fact that Cusack is now a prolific master of the surprise attack.  The film, which I hadn’t heard of before today, also boasts Luis Guzman and Jacki Weaver among its cast. Reclaim was directed by Alan White from a script by Luke Davies and Carmine Gaeta and I can’t say I’m terribly blown away.  It looks serviceable, but flat.  The kind of movie that pretty much defines the mid-level tier of the annual Afm market.  Still, it could end up being something of an ironic classic if it contains a few more lines in the vein of, “you bought our daughter on the black market?”  Hit the jump for the Reclaim trailer! »

John Cusack To ‘Reclaim’ You In Latest Trailer

6 August 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

John Cusack was once the oddball star of such classics as High Fidelity, Being John Malkovich and Grosse Pointe Blank, but 2014 has seen the actor knock out 4 films already with more to come by the end of the year. These aren’t the wonderful films Cusack used to put out but are instead a range of straight to DVD films, or films that share a limited theatrical run with an on demand release date. Reclaim is no different, with Cusack being a sinister guy who adopts out children for high prices, and then reclaims them in order to continue the scame. Ryan Phillippe plays an unsuspecting American who, along with his wife played by Rachelle Lefevre, become victims to the menacing Cusack, but will stop at nothing to get their recently adopted daughter back. It looks like a decent bit of action fluff, but surely Cusack must be running on empty by now. »

New Trailers: "Left Behind," "Reclaim"

5 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack have been less than discerning with their film gigs in recent years, picking a lot of modestly budgeted thrillers that get poor reviews and barely go theatrical. How many remember the likes of "The Bag Man," "Drive Hard," "The Frozen Ground," "The Factory," "Seeking Justice," "Stolen," "Trespass," "Rage," or "The Numbers Station"?

Today comes trailers for two more. First up is "Left Behind," the film version of the popular book series by Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins which deals with what would happen if the Christian Rapture and Apocalypse took place today. The focus here though isn't on wider society, but rather a family lead by Cage's pilot character.

The second is for Cusack's "Reclaim" which co-stars Ryan PhillippeRachelle LefevreJacki Weaver and Luis Guzman. That follows an American couple who travel to Puerto Rico to finalize an adoption, only to learn it was a scam. »
