The Gunman | Review

19 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Gun Show: Morel’s Failed Fashioning of Penn Into Unlikely Action Star

If anything, it’s safe to say that The Gunman, the latest film from Luc Besson acolyte Pierre Morel, is hardly as silly as previous action films, such as 2010’s From Paris With Love and the first ‘chapter’ of the Taken (2008) trilogy, which lands the French helmer the distinction of revitalizing the career of Liam Neeson. On the surface, it looks like the director is priming Sean Penn for a similar autumnal invitation to action star status, but while the performer’s hermetic seriousness may downplay the film’s camp value, it also neutralizes any aspect of entertainment.

Not smartly written enough to be a truly intelligent thriller with either a political or activist inclined angle we’re used to seeing from Penn’s increasingly infrequent on-screen performances, the end result is a leathery prune of a film, »

‘Sleepy Hollow’ Star Orlando Jones Joins ‘The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’

4 March 2015 1:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sleepy Hollow” star Orlando Jones has joined the cast of “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Jones joins Jessica Biel, Jason Sudeikis, Maisie Williams and Mary Steenburgen in the drama, which began production in New Orleans this week. Bill Purple will direct the pic from a script he wrote with Robbie Pickering. Justin Timberlake will compose and serve as music supervisor for the soundtrack. Biel is producing with Michelle Purple under their Iron Ocean Films banner.

Jones plays Cornelius Thibadeaux aka “Dumbass,” whose unfortunate moniker was bestowed by his strict and disapproving father. Described as an affable and loyal character, Dumbass takes on the seemingly incomprehensible job of helping introverted architect Henry (Sudeikis) build a raft for a spirited, homeless teen named Millie (Williams) to use to sail to a far away island, after Henry’s wife (Biel) is tragically killed in a car accident. »

The Western Makes A Comeback In New Trailer For The Salvation

4 March 2015 2:24 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Westerns have been very few and far between over the last few years, and with the exception of Django Unchained, they haven't really found a place with modern audiences. That could all change with The Salvation, a tribute to classic westerns of years past, that perfectly captures the classic and mythic nature of this beloved genre. The above trailer does a great job of showing exactly what director Kristian Levring wants to achieve with The Salvation, and couples a strong lead performance from Mads Mikkelsen with an impressive supporting cast, including Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Eric Cantona (yes, really. He's proven himself a competent actor since he gave up football). I have a feeling, years from now, this could be said in the same breath as other classic westerns, like Once Upon a Time in the West, Tombstone, and Unforgiven. Released: 17th April Synopsis: In the 1870s, among new settlers and outlaws, »

2015 The Summer of the Most Famous Dead Guy on TV | Geek Girl Navigating the World

28 February 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

You wouldn’t think a show like “Supernatural” would have anything in common with “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Weeds”. After all, they’re wildly different genres on different networks. Each of these shows did do one thing the same. Every single one of them killed a character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

He’s the dad they love to kill, or, at least that’s what happened to both John Winchester and Judah Botwin. Even as a single guy with a thing for Scrabble, he didn’t fare so well, just ask Denny Duquette. Oh, wait. You can’t. They killed him, too. He became, for all intents and purposes, the best and most memorable Red Shirt on TV.

Foolishly, I thought maybe movies would make a difference. “Watchmen” and “Jonah Hex” both proved me wrong. He did stay alive through “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding”, “Taking Woodstock,” “The Losers,” “P.S. I Love You »

‘The Salvation’ delivers an all too rare successful Western

26 February 2015 9:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Salvation

Written by Anders Thomas Jensen and Kristian Levring

Directed by Kristian Levring

Denmark, 2015

Westerns have never recovered from the oversaturation of the genre that killed off viewer interest decades ago, but every now and then a gem pops up. Recent successes like The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 2007’s 3:10 to Yuma and the Coen brothers adaptation of True Grit all did well because they tweaked the genre slightly, but director Kristian Levring goes with an old school approach. A faithful recreation of those revenge Westerns made so popular in the 1970s, The Salvation envelopes many elements of previous Clint Eastwood classics and wraps it into a tidy package.

The Salvation starts in on the central dilemma, joining Jon (Hannibal‘s Mad Mikkelsen) at the train station where he awaits the arrival of his wife and son. Jon and his brother, Peter (Mikael Persbrandt »

The Salvation With Mads Mikkelsen: A New, Old-Fashioned Western

26 February 2015 5:13 PM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

I’m always ready to watch a Western—even if it comes from Denmark and was shot in South Africa! That’s the pedigree for The Salvation, which stars Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jonathan Pryce. This handsome, widescreen movie doesn’t try to reinvent the genre; in fact, quite the opposite. It’s a ritualistic morality tale that foreshadows its conclusion in the opening scenes. Some might call it a parade of genre clichés, but the film is less about the destination than the journey. Were it not for good performances and visual flair it would be easier to dismiss. The year is 1871. Mikkelsen and his brother (Mikael Persbrandt), having fought for their...

The Salvation Review

26 February 2015 3:48 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With his tough, chiseled face, Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen has one of world cinema’s best mugs. The actor carries so much of the weight of his many characters in his face, whether it be Hannibal Lecter’s suave cunning on television or anguished despair in his triumphant role in Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt. Naturally, as a stoic settler trying to get retribution on a bloodthirsty baddie in The Salvation, a pastiche to the westerns of John Ford and Sergio Leone, Mikkelsen is magnetic, expressing deep hurt and pain with just a glower or grimace.

As recent Danish immigrant Jon, Mikkelsen’s bloodied and blistered face is a wall to show just how resolute he can be. Jon crossed the Atlantic with his brother (Mikael Persbrandt) in the 1860s with the hopes of making a living in a frontier town. He learned the customs and language, as did the »

History Channel’s ‘Texas Rising’ May Have Little to Do With History

26 February 2015 8:51 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Bill Paxton is featured in a new trailer for the History Channel’s eight-part miniseries “Texas Rising.” The show, however, looks like it has more to do with entertainment and less to do with, you know… actual history. The show is about Texas’s revolt against Mexican rule in the 1800s. Joining Paxton, who plays Texas hero Sam Houston, are Olivier Martinez, Chad Michael Murray, Brendan Fraser, Trevor Donovan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Ray Liotta. [...] »

However Compelling, Western The Salvation Fails to Break New Ground

24 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Two Bond villains and Eva Green walk into a western, and they emerge with a rugged — if far from revolutionary — old-school horse-opera throwback. Having long since ditched the Dogme 95 precepts that guided his breakout 2000 feature, The King Is Alive, Danish director Kristian Levring employs a bounty of CG-enhanced Sergio Leone–isms for The Salvation, the story of a Danish soldier-turned-settler named Jon (Casino Royale's Mads Mikkelsen) who's reunited with his wife and child in 1871 America, only to have them raped and murdered. Jon exacts bloody revenge for this crime, which in turn makes him the target of a bandit leader (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in league with a mayor (Tomorrow Never Dies' Jonathan Pryce) and in love with »

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first image from The History Channel’s upcoming 8-hour miniseries Texas Rising, which you can check it out below, along with the official trailer…

The Alamo was not the end of the story, it was only the beginning, and Texas Rising details what followed in the fight for an independent Texas. In 1836, west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West and the Texas frontier was viewed as hell on earth. With colliding cultures all fighting for stakes to this territory, no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the fierce Mexican General Santa Anna. General Sam Houston (Paxton), the rag tag Rangers and the legendary “Yellow Rose of Texas,” lead this story of the human will to fight for freedom despite insurmountable odds and to »

First Image From Texas Rising Surfaces Online

20 February 2015 5:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The History Channel did so well with Hatfields And McCoys in 2012, that they are re-teaming with star of that series, Bill Paxton, for Texas Rising – and it is Paxton that features in the first image from the production, from Entertainment Weekly. The eight hour miniseries details the rise of the Texas Rangers after the events at the Alamo, and also numbers Brendan Fraser among its all-star cast.

Paxton stars as Sam Houston – namesake of the Texas city, and the American politician and soldier that helped bring Texas into the United States. During his career, in addition to being the first and third President of the Republic of Texas, he was instrumental in the victory that secured the independence of Texas from Mexico at the Battle of San Jacinto. The Texas Rangers – about whom this miniseries is made – were technically founded by Stephen F. Austin in 1823, when he employed ten men »
