A Marine unit stationed in the hostile province of Helmand Afghanistan wilderness faces a harrowing mission as they try to help a fugitive woman reach safety from the Taliban in Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire. Packed with intense action, thrills and the gritty reality of war, the all-new movie Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire is inspired by Jarhead, the highly praised feature film that follows a naïve young recruit and his platoon mates from the intensity of boot camp to being deployed to a lonely outpost in a surreal desert setting. Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire transports the action to the brutal battlefields and dusty villages of Afghanistan, where a band of Marines risk their lives to save a woman fleeing certain death at the hands of her Taliban pursuers.

Somewhere in the executive offices over at Universal, someone said something along these lines: "You know what property we really need to maximize? 'Jarhead.' " And so they did just that, deciding to make a follow-up to the 2005 movie, that isn't a sequel, so much as a movie "inspired" by the Sam Mendes film. And though this trailer dropped a while ago, it's just caught our attention now and we can't be the only ones to bear witness to this. Directed by Don Michael Paul ("Sniper: Legacy," "Lake Placid: The Final Chapter") and starring Josh Kelly, Cole Hauser, Bookeem Woodbine, Esai Morales, Stephen Lang and a bunch of other people, this one combines cheap locations and alt-rawk rhythmz for one testosterone-fueled experience. Here's the synopsis: Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merriman is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of. »

In 2005, Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directed a war film called "Jarhead," starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx and Peter Sarsgaard. And now, we have a trailer for the direct to Blu-ray sequel, called "Jarhead 2: Field of Fire." Check it out below. Plot: Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merriman is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy Seal flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman famous for her defiance of the Taliban escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merriman and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety.

Surely one of the more anticipated American films of the year for a lot of cineastes, Transcendence is the directorial debut of the wonderfully named Wally Pfister, a man who up until this film was predominantly known for being one of Christopher Nolan’s key collaborators, shooting all of his films since Memento and in the process heightening Nolan’s cerebral work with a look that is pretty much as polished as you can ever hope for, while also being a vocal proponent of non-digital film formats and keeping the 35mm dream alive. Armed with $100 million for a budget, the ability to use 35mm and a rather starry ensemble cast, critics have been lining up to take a swing at Transcendence and audiences haven’t been lining »

It was way better than I thought it would be. The storyline was highly intriguing and unique. It also delivered plenty of drama,along with a little bit action thrown in there towards the end. It stars: Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, and Cillian Murphy. In the new flick, character, Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp), who is an artificial intelligence researcher and part of a team of scientists, strives to develop a machine that possesses sentience and collective intelligence, an event which Will referred to as "Transcendence." Eventually, Will gets shot by an anti-ai extremist, and survives. However, doctors eventually discover that the bullet was laced with radioactive material, which will eventually shut down Will's vital organs, causing him to die. »
