Of the many talents belonging to Paul Thomas Anderson, he's been savvy at casting his films, always finding the right face and actor. This had led to long-term collaborators, such as the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, and short term ones too like Luis Guzman. While we'll have to see where Jillian Bell winds up among the PTA players, clearly he's currently enjoying working with her. The "Workaholics" star played a small role in "The Master," and he's cast her again in his next effort, "Inherent Vice," and the actress talked to Cosmopolitan about her character. "I have such a small part in the movie — I loved doing it, I would do anything for Paul Thomas Anderson because he’s Paul Thomas Anderson — but they just flew me in just to do a small part as this weird waitress. But I got to do a scene with Benicio Del Toro, who »

So HBO is coming to Amazon. This is good news, I think, insofar as anything that makes the great shows of the HBO Renaissance available to more people is good news. I’m a TV obsessive of a certain age — definition of “a certain age” freely covering anyone who remembers when “TV is better than movies” was an argument that you had to make, when TV-on-dvd was the technological forefront, and when the notion of “downloading” a TV show didn’t seem needlessly wasteful of valuable hard drive space.

A review of tonight's "Fargo" coming up just as soon as I find a human foot in a toaster oven... Episode 1 of this strange new Coen-adjacent adventure kept things relatively simple. We got to know the perpetually bullied Lester, got to appreciate Lorne Malvo's role as a homicidal bringer of chaos, got to appreciation the relationship between chief Vern and deputy Molly, then saw how the murder of Sam Hess triggered all sorts of problems and additional violence. It's not the 1996 movie in microcosm, but it's a small enough story that one might wonder how Noah Hawley intends to get 10 episodes out of it. With "The Rooster Prince," Hawley makes very clear that he's got many weeks of material here, as he introduces several major new characters and plot threads. Sam Hess's murder is the inciting incident, but there's an awful lot more going on here. Because the murders of »

Former Mma star Gina Carano, who rose to fame following her starring role in Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 action-thriller film Haywire – although she had previously appeared in low-budget actioner Blood and Bone alongside Michael Jai White – returns to the action genre, and a leading role, with In the Blood, the latest film from actor/director John Stockwell (Cheaters, Crazy/Beautiful).
In the Blood sees Ava (Carano) and Derek (Gigandet), a newly married couple, honeymooning in the Caribbean who are befriended by a local hustler, Manny (Cordova), who talks them into going to a night club where they get into a fight with the locals. The next day, whilst out zip-lining with Manny, Derek gets into an accident and is taken to hospital. However when Ava shows up looking for her husband, »

Forest Whitaker seems to be drifting back into the spotlight. Last year, he led the hit "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and appeared in support in "Out Of The Furnace," and now he has a bonafide arthouse world film with the Berlin International Film Festival-approved “Two Men In Town.” Helmed by “Outside The Law” director Rachid Bouchareb, the film’s French trailer has arrived online ahead of its release in that country and you won’t need to know French to watch it. Despite being an English-language film and being set in New Mexico, the Whitaker-starring film—which includes Harvey Keitel, Ellen Burstyn, Brenda Blethyn and Luis Guzman— will be released by Cohen Media Group later this year. The Bouchareb-helmed film, based on Jose Giovanni’s 1973 film of the same name, falls neatly into the ex-con-trying-to-go-straight subgenre albeit with some stellar cinematography which you can glimpse in the newly released trailer. »

Title: In the Blood Director: John Stockwell Starring: Gina Carano, Cam Gigandet, Treat Williams, Danny Trejo, Luiz Guzman, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Stephen Lang If we’re keeping tabs on the evolving filmography of ex-mixed martial arts fighter and future “The Expendabelles” centerpiece Gina Carano, “In the Blood,” from director John Stockwell, slots considerably below “Haywire,” her at once lithe and bruising collaboration with Stephen Soderbergh. And yet there’s still a certain ramshackle appeal to the film, a starchy, “Taken”-meets-”Turistas” revenge picture which could just as easily be titled “Woman on Fire.” “In the Blood” centers around Ava (Carano) and Derek Grant (Cam Gigandet), a newly married couple who head to the Caribbean [ Read More ]

Pulses are likely to remain level during “In the Blood,” a serviceable vehicle for Mma champ Gina Carano (“Haywire”). In a plot that variously recalls “True Lies,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight” and “Kill Bill,” Carano plays a new bride looking forward to a tranquil domestic life who’s forced to deploy her secret, all-purpose beatdown skills after her husband disappears. Given the limited release (the film is opening simultaneously on VOD), B.O. potency will depend on getting the word out to Carano’s fans, who may already be used to watching her on pay-per-view.
Perhaps inadvertently, the kidnapped-vacationers plot revisits territory director John Stockwell explored in 2006′s organ-trafficking thriller “Turistas,” down to a subplot involving a nonconsensual transfusion. A prologue sets the stage on the mean streets of Bridgeport, Conn., in 2002, when Ava (played as a teenager by Paloma Olympia Louvat) witnesses and avenges the murder of her self-styled »

Toronto based outfit Raven Banner Entertainment has acquired the Canadian rights for the action thriller In The Blood, starring Gina Carano. They will release the film in Canadian cinemas on April 24. "Gina Carano is without a doubt, the most badass action heroine in Hollywood today," says Raven Banner's Michael Paszt. "It's a real thrill for us to be releasing the film in Canada." The film also stars Cam Gigandet (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2), Luis Guzmán (We're the Millers, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3), Amaury Nolasco (The Rum Diary, Prison Break), Ismael Cruz Cordoba (The Good Wife), Treat Williams (Chicago Fire), Stephen Lang (Avatar) and Danny Trejo (Machete)....

Gina Carano is the only selling point that In the Blood, a predictable yet enjoyable action flick from Into the Blue helmer John Stockwell, really needs. After all, a hero who’s charismatic, easy on the eyes and capable of kicking some serious ass is hard to come by. Carano fits the bill quite nicely, and she’s the sole reason that action aficionados will (and should) check out In the Blood.
Starring as Ava, a newlywed with a rough past who goes on the hunt for her husband (Cam Giganet) after he disappears following a zip-lining accident on their Caribbean honeymoon, Carano gets her first real opportunity to prove herself as a leading lady (I’d argue that Soderbergh’s touch in Haywire made the film more about him than her). Luckily for In the Blood, there’s more to the actress than just her fists. Though the film’s script, »

Blood Crush: Stockwell Returns to Exotic Paradise for B Movie Thrills
Considering that In the Blood was scripted by James Robert Johnston (The Howling Reborn; Joy Ride 2) and Bennett Yellin (Dumb & Dumber films) plus directed by actor/director John Stockwell, you might be surprised at how competently structured it is, even as it operates solely on the fumes of generic derivatives, plumbing the depths of any number of B action film tropes. Cashing in on Gina Carano’s headlining presence, it can’t quite manage to escape feeling like the poor man’s version of Haywire 2, though an intriguing supporting cast distracts from the silliness of it all as it glides along to a truncated denouement.
Opening with Ava’s (Gina Carano) narration about how her father turned her into a brutal killing machine and how she remembered his death, a scene of brutal violence segues to 12 years later in Arlington, »

The creators of In the Blood seem to hate the Caribbean, depicting it as a cesspool of slums, cockfights, corrupt cops, and ruthless killers -- until, finally, director John Stockwell and company seem to feel so bad about slandering the islands that a villain (Danny Trejo) criticizes his cronies for giving their home a bad name. That he does so immediately before committing even more gruesome crimes is part and parcel of the ridiculousness of this subpar action movie, in which Ava (Gina Carano) must find her husband, Derek (Cam Gigandet), after he suffers a zip-lining accident on their honeymoon and then vanishes. Ava’s search is complicated by the fact that everyone, including a shady police chief (Luis Guzmán) and Derek’s wealthy dad (Treat »

Former mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano spent years beating up her opponents in the ring before finally becoming a bona fide action star in Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 thriller Haywire. The groundwork had been perfectly laid out; her looks, femininity, and physicality along with a built in fanbase made her an attractive candidate for action movies. Haywire was a critical and mild commercial success, but mostly functioned as a (very successful) platform for introducing the world to Gina Carano, action star.
What happens though when Carano is expected to carry the load of a film that doesn’t have the benefit of being directed by someone as gifted as Steven Soderbergh? That’s the question of the day as the first trailer for In the Blood has been released and it’s hard to not be more than a little underwhelmed.
We get to see Carano running around some unnamed »

The first trailer and poster for John Stockwell's In the Blood, starring Gina Carano, are now available for you to enjoy. The actioner finds Carano's character on a violent path to track down the people responsible for kidnapping her husband during a tropical vacation. The interesting thing about this first look at In the Blood isn't so much the plot (we've seen similar stories in decades of male-fronted action films), but the fact that the gender roles have been inverted. You can see for yourself after the jump, but Carano isn't just playing the action star - she's the real deal. Also starring Cam Gigandet, Luis Guzmán, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordoba, Treat Williams, Stephen Lang, and Danny Trejo, In the Blood opens April 4th. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer and poster. A while back, we talked to Carano about In the Blood during her »
