The Wall: Aaron Taylor-Johnson On Being The Focus Of Doug Liman’s Military Thriller

Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson has played his fair share of superheroes from the title character in Kick-Ass to Quicksilver in Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron, but in Doug Liman’s The Wall, he gets to play a real superhero; Sergeant Allen Isaac, a soldier in Iraq trapped behind the title wall and pinned down by a sniper. Said sniper finds a way to tap into Isaac’s earpiece, and he begins to play mind games with the young soldier while trying to find out more about his life, and his past.

It’s a fantastic role for Taylor-Johnson with Liman’s camera trained on him for much of the film, creating the same kind of tension Liman brought to his earlier films, Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity.

Lrm got on the phone with Taylor-Johnson from the L.A. junket last week:

Kristanna Loken On The Crime Thriller Black Rose, Uwe Boll And More

Actress Kristanna Loken has established herself as one to call when you need a tough woman who can kick ass, something she established in the 1999 TV series Mortal Kombat: Conquest, followed with playing the T-x in 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. After making a couple movies with the infamous Uwe Boll including Bloodrayne, Loken got the role to play Painkiller Jane in the 2007 Sci-Fi Channel show based on the comics.

While she seemingly hasn’t been as visible in recent years, she can now be seen in the crime-thriller Black Rose, a Russian-American collaborative film that’s finally hitting these shores. It’s directed by, and stars, Russian bodybuilder Alexander Nevsky as a Russian super-cop who is brought to L.A. to help solve the murders of a few Russian women there. He’s partnered with profiler Emily Smith (Loken) as they try to find clues to find the ruthless killer.

Chuck: Director Philippe Falardeau On The Liev Schreiber Boxing Drama

French-Canadian filmmaker Philippe Falardeau has actually been making movies for almost twenty years, but it wasn’t until about 2011 when he first started getting attention for his drama Monsieur Lazhar, which was nominated for a foreign language Oscar. Falardeau’s 2014 movie The Good Lie, didn’t get much notice despite starring Reese Witherspoon and being released by Warner Bros. Therefore, he hasn’t quite made the waves into Hollywood as his country-mates Denis Villeneuve or Jean-Marc Vallée (Wild).

Undaunted, Falardeau decided to take on the story of Bayonne, New Jersey boxer Chuck Wepner, who famously went up against Ali at the height of his success in the ‘70s and managed to go 15 rounds before the fight was called due to Wepner’s famed “bleeding” during fights. Wepner was alternately known as “The Bayonne Brawler” and “The Bayonne Bleeder.”

The movie Chuck stars Liev Schreiber as the famed boxer who would

Exclusive: Doug Liman On Why He Left Channing Tatum's Gambit

Doug Liman continues to be an in-demand director after hits like Edge of Tomorrow and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. In November 2015, Liman was named as the director on Channing Tatum’s anticipated Gambit movie, then it was pushed back for him to do The Wall, a smaller film that’s coming out this Friday, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena. (Liman also reunited with Tom Cruise for American Made coming out in late September, as well.)

Last August, it was reported that LIman had walked away from Gambit to focus on other movies. It definitely seems like Liman is well-qualified to take on a superhero movie, and he might still do so, having attached himself to DC Entertainment/Warner Bros’ Dark Universe aka Justice League Dark around the same time as leaving Gambit.

When Lrm spoke with Liman over the weekend, we asked him about his decision to leave Gambit

Emma Watson’s The Circle Ends The Lame Spring Movie Season -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Even Emma Watson and Tom Hanks May Not Be Enough to Make a Mark As April Ends

The last weekend of April, and the “slower” spring movie season is ending this weekend, leading directly into the start of the lucrative summer box office next week. As has been the case in past years, the last couple weekends in April see a couple movies hoping to bring in any amount of money before the first big summer blockbuster, and other movies that will steal away their theaters. Last weekend was pretty sad, but hopefully a few of this weekend’s movies will fare better.

The movie that stands the best chance at finding an audience this weekend is the tech industry thriller The Circle

Exclusive interview with Black Rose star Alexander Nevsky

david j. moore chats with Black Rose star Alexander Nevsky

Western Audiences may not be familiar with bodybuilder-turned action star Alexander Nevsky, but in Russia he’s a bona fide star. Nevsky has been quietly creating his own projects to star in, starting with the surprisingly earnest and stellar film Moscow Heat, which emulated the Walter Hill actioner Red Heat, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Speaking of Schwarzenegger, Nevsky’s build, voice, and demeanor are a striking ringer for Arnold, and Nevsky knows this and plays it to his benefit. Nevsky’s other films include the also quite entertaining genre hybrid mashup Treasure Raiders, which combined the best ingredients of The Fast and the Furious and National Treasure, and he’s back with this year’s serial killer thriller/action film Black Rose, co-starring Kristanna Loken, and a little later in the year with the Expendables-type action flick Showdown in Manila, which

As someone who grew up reading The Dark Side magazine I was privileged to be made aware of a myriad of genre films that, had I just stuck to the shelves of my local video store, I would never have heard of. Of course this was during a turbulent period in UK cinema history that, much like the video nasties era before it, saw horror films treated with disdain. Which meant that unlike today – where you can walk into HMV and buy former video nasty Anthropophagus on Blu-ray or order films from around the world online – it was a struggle to find a lot of the movies I read about. It’s not that I didn’t try, and thankfully
