Christopher’s Top 10 Trailers of 2011

30 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? I'll get this out of the way now: Harry Potter is not on this list. I only mention this as I was excoriated back in »

I Saw The Devil: Austin Film Critics Biggest Surprise Winner

29 December 2011 7:44 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lee Byung-hun, I Saw the Devil This year, the Austin Film Critics went for some unusual — though not exactly "surprising" — choices. Well, with one exception: Jee-woon Kim's revenge thriller I Saw the Devil, their Best Foreign Language Film. To date, Us-based critics have gone instead for Pedro Almodóvar's The Skin I Live In, Asghar Farhadi's A Separation, or Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins. Earlier this year, I Saw the Devil, about a young man (Lee Byung-hun) out to avenge the murder of his pregnant wife, won an Asian Film Award for Best Editing. [Full list of Austin Film Critics winners.] Martin Scorsese's 3D ode to the magic of movies, Hugo, was selected as the Best Film of 2011. Elsewhere, Us critics have been leaning more heavily toward another ode to the magic movies, Michel Hazanavicius' black-and-white silent comedy-drama The Artist, which, curiously, failed to top any of the Austin Critics' categories.

The Top Five Horror/Thriller Films of 2011!

29 December 2011 4:00 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

In no particular order, these are the stand out films that are worth adding to any video library. The set of criteria is simple: a standout performance by one or more of the first billed actors that can be re-watched time and time again. Their complexity is what defines the film. Also important is the type of chills or thrills the movie offers, and the story being told.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Dir.: Eli Craig.

Cast: Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk and Katrina Bowden.

Although this film is technically a 2010 product, it did not reach distribution until the following year. This one, like how some of the victims died in film, skips under the gun by being exceptionally funny with an adorable, luggable, teddy bear performance by Tyler Labine. This product is a better answer to a theatrical version of the Beverly Hillbillies. The clash of cultures is perfectly played up for laughs. »

The directors who should tackle a Marvel movie

12 December 2011 4:10 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With one eye on the currently empty director's chair for Thor 2, we've got a few ideas for people who should tackle a Marvel movie...

With the directorial job for Thor 2 currently up in the air and a number of other Marvel properties without directors, I thought I’d have a look at some of the projects currently in progress, and suggest a suitable director for each.

A couple of the films below aren’t Marvel Studios productions, but are based on Marvel comics, so they still count...

Thor 2: Werner Herzog

I appreciate this is a bit of a leftfield choice and highly unlikely to happen, but imagine Werner in charge of Thor 2 – it would be magnificent. As Branagh brought Shakespearian elements to Thor, the themes and eccentricities explored in Herzog’s movies, such as Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre, Wrath Of God, would be interesting in the follow up. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Banged Up on The Last Stand Set

19 November 2011 8:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently tweeted from the set of The Last Stand, claiming that he got banged up on the set. I think it's safe to say we expect the same adrenaline fueled dose of action we always get from the biggest action star on the planet.

"Got a little banged up on set today. Thanks to the medical staff who got me back in action an hour later!"

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his Lapd post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with »

Arnie Signs For New Action Film “Black Sands”

3 November 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Now that he is done being all Governor-y, Arnie is getting back into the swing of making action films quite nicely. As we’ve posted recently, he has been on set with The Expendables 2 and is also already shooting The Last Stand, which is being directed by Jee-Woon Kim.

Now we have news that Arnie has lined up another action flick for once The Last Stand is finished. Working from a script by Skip Woods (who wrote the screenplay for the recently green-lit Die Hard 5), Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy will direct the Austrian Oak in Black Sands, a film being pitched as High Plains Drifter meets Man on Fire. Frankly, if the finished product can come even vaguely close to the quality of either of those films, I will be a happy man indeed. Arnie will play a loner (no doubt armed to the teeth and with some »

First Look At Arnold Schwarzenegger On 'The Last Stand' Set

3 November 2011 1:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

'I Saw the Devil' director, Jee-woon Kim's 'The Last Stand' officially got into production late last month. The star of the film is none other than action veteran, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who posted a photo from the set. It's with him, Jaimie Alexander, Johnny Knoxville, and Luis Guzmán. You can check that out below thanks to the actor's TwitPic. But first, a little back-story on what the former politician is returning to the big screen for:  "Schwarzenegger stars as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his Lapd post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled.

Genesis Rodriguez To Partner Rodrigo Santoro In The Last Stand

1 November 2011 6:40 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Production has commenced already for Jee-woon Kim.s The Last Stand, but it looks like they.re putting the finishing touches to what has shaped up to be a pretty great looking cast. Joining The Last Stand is Genesis Rodriguez, whose recent roles included a part on Entourage, and the upcoming Asger Leth film Man on a Ledge. The Last Stand follows a drug cartel leader who escapes police custody and makes a break for the border, heading straight for Mexico. Standing in his way is a sleepy town, which is guarded by a sheriff and a staff of people who may not be the most experience with stopping a fugitive. With a cast that includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jaimie Alexander, Forest Whitaker, Rodrigo Santoro, Johnny Knoxville, Harry Dean Stanton, and Friday Night Lights Zach Gilford, there are plenty of reasons to hope this film turns out to be a winner. »

Sylvester Stallone enters The Tomb

27 October 2011 11:15 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

This is funny! Originally, prison action film The Tomb had Bruce Willis attached to star with his Tears Of The Sun director Antoine Fuqua at the helm. Bruno wound up leaving the project, but then Arnold Schwarzenegger began considering the gig as his big post-politics comeback vehicle. Of course, that didn't happen, as Arnie ultimately turned his attention to Jee-woon Kim and The Last Stand instead. So naturally, as the Law of Action Veterans dictates, Sylvester Stallone has stepped in »

John Cusack and Johnny Knoxville Team For Soccer Comedy ‘Carnaval’

20 October 2011 3:57 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Both John Cusack and Johnny Knoxville are no strangers to the comedy world. The duo, however unlikely or odd, will star in Josh Stern’s new film, Carnaval. Stone Village is set to produce and finance the comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cusack will portray a sports scout determined to find the best soccer player the world has ever seen, all the while dealing with the infamous Rio de Janerio Carnival, which happens annually. In order to obtain the agency, Cusack’s character has to sign said amazing soccer player. Knoxville will play his friend, who inevitably screws up Cusack’s chances of obtaining the agency, by sleeping with the soccer player’s girlfriend.

Stern has re-written the script, originally authored by former agent, David Styne. Among the other three, Scott Steindorff, Dylan Russell and Scott Lastaiti, Styne will also be billed as a producer.

The film is set »

Schwarzenegger On Set For The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand

19 October 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Schwarzenegger’s appearance alongside Stallone and Willis in the first Expendables film was a glorified cameo and didn’t have nearly as much impact as they all seemed to think it did. Frankly, I felt robbed and it is therefore with some gratitude that I hear that there may be a bit more of him this time around.

Yes, it’s sequel time and along with the rest of the returning cast, we should get a whole host of other action stars as well. So far, we know to expect Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Sly, Scott Adkins, Chuck Norris (who apparently can win Connect 4 in three moves), Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and possibly The Rock, Vin Diesel, John Travolta and Nic Cage. Crikey.

Rumour-mongering aside, we know that Sly, Willis and Arnie are on set, because we have this lovely photo to prove it. »

Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville Among the Friendly Faces Joining Schwarzenegger in ‘Last Stand’

17 October 2011 1:35 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Jee-Woon Kim’s Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring story about a western sheriff running afoul of a Mexican drug cartel leader seems to be getting closer to shooting, because a bunch of names have been added to the cast list. We already found out that Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford would be joining the cast as Schwarzenegger’s young deputy, but now a whole host of pretty diverse, kind of interesting actors have been added to support that duo. The biggest of the new names on the Lionsgate cast list are probably Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville; one man who is famous for acting in a bunch of movies over the last three decades and another for getting hit in his balls a lot. Okay, that’s not fair, Knoxville has been fine in the few films I’ve seen him in, and I’m sure he’ll be fine with whatever they give him here. And »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's western 'The Last Stand' starts filming today. Check out that supporting cast!

17 October 2011 12:03 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Arnold Schwarzenegger Comeback Express continues chugging along. First came last week’s sneak peek at Expendables 2, which reunites the actor with fellow ’80s action icons (and Planet Hollywood investors) Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone for more male-menopausal buttkicking. And today marks the the first day of filming for Schwarzenegger’s first starring vehicle since he began his political career. Earlier this summer, it was announced that Schwarzenegger would star in The Last Stand, a western from director Jee-woon Kim (The Good, The Bad, The Weird). Somewhere along the way, the project accrued an intriguing amount of interesting supporting players: »
