Exclusive: Sean Penn is an elite badass in this TV spot for The Gunman

16 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Sean Penn is trying his hand at the action genre this month with The Gunman, which comes from director Pierre Morel, who kicked off Liam Neeson's action career with Taken. Not a bad way to start if that's your aim. The flick also stars Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, and Javier Bardem, making this a bit more high profile than you'd expect from a glitzy actioner. Today, we have an exclusive TV spot for the film, which shows that Penn may well have a shot at a new career path »

The Gunman: first look at new poster

27 February 2015 2:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Penn stars in The Gunman, from the director of the good Taken movie. Here's an exclusive look at the new poster...

We're looking forward to this one. Sean Penn is taking the lead in a new movie from the director of the original - and best - Taken movie. That'd be the first one, of course, and the director concerned is Pierre Morel.

The movie is called The Gunman, and it stars Penn as a former Special Forces soldier and military contractor, who is trying to clear his name. Idris Elba, Javier Bardem, Ray Winstone and Mark Rylance co-star in the film, which arrives in UK cinemas on March 20th 2015.

And we've got our paws on the new poster for the film. It's exclusive too, although given this is the internet, it will not be exclusive for very long. But we'll enjoy our moment in the sun.

Over to Mr Penn, »

The Gunman is an upcoming action thriller from the director of Taken, Pierre Morel, starring Sean Penn and Javier Bardem. This is the latest Us trailer for the film. As much as the last two Taken films have sucked, the first one is still pretty decent if not a bit dated. What I’m trying to […]

'Magic Mike Xxl', 'Insidious 3', 'Self/less' and More in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

24 February 2015 2:35 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week's batch of MPAA ratings include the upcoming Sean Penn actioner The Gunman receiving an R-rating, which I guess means Taken director Pierre Morel was given a little bit of a longer leash than he was on Taken when it comes to violence. How will Penn stack up to Liam Neesonc Another R-rating goes to Magic Mike Xxl as the stripper sequel will see Channing Tatum and the boys getting inappropriate with strong sexual content, pervasive language, some nudity and a little bit o' drug use. All in a day's work amiritec Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos is the other R-rated feature on the board as the Kate Winslet starrer is still looking for a release date. Otherwise we have a large group of PG-13s for the likes of Insidious: Chapter 3, the new Nicolas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride and Tarsem Singh's Self/less, which was »

New Trailer For The Gunman Loads Up

24 February 2015 2:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Still not satisfied with his fill of one-man army action films, Taken director Pierre Morel is loading what could be a brand new franchise led by Sean Penn.

Rarely stepping into such dangerous territory, the Academy Award winning actor looks to be handling it just fine as he’s running around, shooting in all directions and maybe even making Bryan Mills to shiver in his steel-toed boots in The Gunman.

Based on the book of the same name, The Gunman sees Penn as an ex-special ops fella, Jim Terrier, who is trying to live the quiet life but unable to shake the horrors of his past. In a quest for redemption, Terrier tries to unveil the errors of one particular mission leading to all those involved to set their sights on our hero. Naturally being the henchman-dispatching badass that he is, Terrier won’t go down without a fight, and »

Latest Trailer For The Gunman

23 February 2015 12:42 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There have already been a couple of trailers for Sean Penn’s swerve into Liam-Neeson-in-Taken-style action thrillers with The Gunman, courtesy of the franchise’s own Pierre Morel. Here comes the third example ahead of the movie’s arrival in March.Penn plays Jim Terrier, a former special forces-type still haunted by the things he did when he was on active duty. And one particular mission is itching at his conscience, a job that was supposed to help people, but ended up more in tragedy than triumph.So when he decides to find out what really happened, he becomes the target of his former fellow shooters and bosses, with the likes of Mark Rylance, Idris Elba and Javier Bardem clouding the picture with different degrees of sinisterness. Ray Winstone, his old mucker, and his girlfriend Jasmine Trinca are probably going to regret getting involved.With a script by »

Sean Penn Is Trigger Happy In New Trailer For The Gunman

23 February 2015 12:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following on from Sean Penn’s frankly bizarre Oscars comments last night, Open Road Films has dropped a new trailer for his upcoming action thriller, The Gunman. Was the decision to unleash the preview to perhaps capitalize on the actor’s oddball antics, or simply because it opens in theaters next month? Whatever the reason, an exciting new preview is now online for your viewing pleasure.

As previous teasers have pointed out – the film is directed by Taken‘s Pierre Morel. That admission appears to serve as a badge of merit, to prove that the director’s latest venture will be equally as badass. And by the looks of things, that statement is entirely accurate. Running at just over a minute, it’s a fast-paced tease with a booming score and plenty of explosions.

Starring Penn as James Terrier, a former military specialist plagued by Ptsd, the movie chronicles his »

Sean Penn is Armed and on the Run in the Second 'Gunman' Trailer

23 February 2015 11:45 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After handing out the award for Best Picture last night, Sean Penn is back today in the secondm quick trailer for The Gunman, the latest thriller from Taken director Pierre Morel. Penn just happens to be getting some flack today for saying "Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?" when he handed an Oscar to Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, but the filmmaker knew it was a harmless joke. However, Penn certainly isn't messing around in what could be a whole new phase to his career. However, not every aging actor can follow the same trajectory as Liam Neeson did, though it's sometimes entertaining to see them try. Watch? Here's the quick new trailer for Pierre Morel's The Gunman from YouTube: You can still watch the first Us trailer for The Gunman right here. The Gunman is directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, From Paris with Love, District B13 »

John Travolta Gets His Own Taken-Esque Action Movie

11 February 2015 10:02 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Chuck Russell might seem to be the very model of a Hollywood director for hire, but that’s not to say his movies are washouts. His 80s remake of The Blob is much more interesting than the original, and The Mask proved to be one of the best Jim Carrey vehicles in decades of work. Indeed, he’s actually only directed a handful of pictures, and there’s something appealing about almost all of them. By which I mean “apart from The Scorpion King.”

Russell’s next picture is likely to be the vigilante action film I am Wrath, and it looks like he might be getting John Travolta as his star. That doesn’t sound like a bad way to spend a few months.

According to The Wrap, Travolta will play “a man out for vigilante justice after a group of corrupt cops are unable to catch his wife’s killer. »
