Oh, hitmen in the movies, when will you stop getting in trouble? Well, probably never, because seeing an assassin shopping for the best deal on wine in Tesco probably wouldn’t be all that exciting. Case in point: Keanu Reeves’ wronged killer in John Wick.

While Keanu Reeves’ filmography spans a number of genres, from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures to My Own Private Idaho to A Scanner Darkly, he is no stranger to the action genre, with his more notable forays including Point Break, Speed, and The Matrix. For his next feature, Reeves is set to step back into action mode. Titled John Wick, the film sees Reeves play the titular character, a retired hitman who moves to take revenge for the death of his dog at the hands of burglars, finding himself drawn back into his old life. The film marks the directorial debut of stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski, working from a script by Derek Kolstad, and co-starring alongside Reeves is Ian McShane, Willem Dafoe, and Adrianne Palicki. The first trailer for the film, which is set to open in American theatres on October 24th, has now been released, and can be seen below. »

This is going to be awesome!!
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is a fresh and stylized take on the “assassin genre”.

The film’s score is from Joel Richard and Tyler Bates (Guardians Of The Galaxy). During my interview with him over the summer, Bates said, “I just finished on a movie with Keanu Reeves and Willem Dafoe called John Wick. That was very cool. As with Guardians, there are songs interspersed in this film as well. There »

If I’m watching this trailer for Keanu Reeves’ hitman thriller “John Wick” correctly, he was a retired hitman living a peaceful existence, but is forced out of retirement after some scumbags led by the “Game of Thrones” guy that got his wiener cut off shot his dog and stole his car. Or as the official synopsis puts it: “An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.” That “everything” being his dog and his car. I’m pretty sure that’s the whole premise of the movie. Of course, once you see the trailer you sort of get that director Chad Stahelski is going for a sort of humor/black comedy/action movie here. I could be wrong, of course. Who knows these days with a Keanu Reeves movie? The film co-stars Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, »

A few things that I have learned from action movies in recent years: don’t take Liam Neeson’s daughter, don’t pick on Jason Statham’s kids, and, apparently, don’t kill Keanu Reeves’ dog. That last discovery comes to us courtesy of the trailer for John Wick, an action movie coming out at the end of October that has received next to no publicity until right now.
John Wick stars Reeves as the titular character, a retired hitman who is pursued by an old friend contracted by a crime boss to kill him. This apparently involves killing off Wick’s dog, the last gift his wife gave to him. Predictably, Wick is not pleased about the loss of the puppy (it’s a cute dog) and sets out to take everyone down with as many guns and one-liners as possible.
Watching the trailer for this film is perplexing. »

Summit Entertainment has released the first John Wick trailer for the upcoming revenge actioner, and it’s actually kind of great. The film marks the directorial debut of veteran stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski and stars Keanu Reeves as a former hit man who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters who took everything from him. This trailer is incredibly promising, as the film looks to have the right balance of absurdity and action. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it’s not overly campy either. And Reeves looks to be having a blast as he’s surrounded by a diverse, impressive supporting cast. Add in the fact that John Wick has been chosen to screen at Fantastic Fest next month, and this could prove to be one of the fall’s bigger pleasant surprises. Watch the John Wick trailer after the jump. The film also stars Adrianne Palicki, »

Will Deadwood return to HBO sometime in the near future? Sons of Anarchy star Dayton Callie doesn't think so, and at the recent Sons of Anarchy Season 7 red carpet premiere, he enthusiastically rattled off all his reasons for believing so.
Deadwood abruptly ended with Season 3 in 2006, its ballooning budget one of the reasons HBO canceled the popular Western series. Even though Season 4 was planned out by creator, writer and executive producer David Milch, it never happened. And the show's epic ensemble went onto other projects, making it impossible to regroup them in the following years. Figuring out their schedules became a logistical nightmare.
Now, with leads Ian McShane not tied to a TV contract any longer, and Timothy Olyphant's run on Justified coming to a close, it started to sound like Deadwood might return after all. actress Kim Dickens, who played Joanie Stubbs, Cy Tolliver's former madam at the Bella Union, »
As Laika prepares to release The Boxtrolls, we look back at its earlier stop-motion masterpiece, the horror-tinged Coraline...
When it comes to the “behind the sofa” entertainment of their youth, older readers will have plenty to talk about, from the Child Catcher to the Daleks. For kids, the splashes of horror in otherwise family friendly films are what teach them how not to be scared. In recent years, we've seen an even greater resurgence of the horror genre in animated movies.
Features like Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania evoked the tropes of classic horror to either pastiche or parody expectations, but we'd go so far as to say that Laika has been stridently leading the charge for horror movies aimed explicitly at a family audience. The Boxtrolls is the third stop-motion feature from the studio, following 2012's zombie movie ParaNorman and 2009's Coraline, which is probably the scariest family film of this century. »
