This post is brought to you in association with Casino Tropez…
The USA does gambling films like nowhere else. Movies such as Casino (1995), set in the bright lights of Las Vegas, or The Sting (1973), set in an atmospheric Chicago, are testament to this dominance. Yet, there are numerous gambling flicks from UK directors and many that are set in Britain. Here are five of the very best.
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)
This effervescent gambling flick’s humorous script catapulted Jason Statham to international stardom, and revamped the careers of a number of other talents. A disastrous London card game triggers a series of preposterous but highly entertaining events that see four friends get into serious trouble over a mammoth batch of weed, a stack of money and two antique shotguns. Lock, Stock gave director Guy Ritchie an international name that saw him direct many subsequent features – and come to the attention of Madonna, »

The first big PlayStation 4 exclusive of 2015, The Order 1886 is a treat in some ways, not in others...
It’s probably somewhere around the first on-rails ‘stealth’ section (complete with super fun insta-death cutscenes if you get spotted) that we started lowering our expectations of The Order 1886. The second time round, just a few chapters later, all hopes for true greatness are abandoned. It’s a shame because this PS4 exclusive takes a pinch of werewolf, a smattering of steampunk and big dollop of the Knights of the Round Table to create an atmospheric alternate history of Victorian London.
A third-person shooter, The Order 1886 liberally borrows ideas from previous games to the point where it can feel like a checklist of conventions from the last decade or so. Lock-picking mini game – check! Sticky cover – check! Slow-mo shooting – check! You can even collect phonograph cylinders to uncover more of the back story! »
With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...
It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.
This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman star in this action movie about a band of warrior seeking revenge for the death of their master. This is a trailer, possibly the first, for Last Knights. So this was shot more than two years ago and I doubt they spent most of that time in post-production because Last […]
Today we have the trailer for the upcoming "Last Knights" action adventure, starring Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman. Check it out below. Plot: A fallen warrior (Owen) rises against a corrupt and sadistic ruler to avenge his dishonored master (Freeman) in this epic, sword-clashing adventure of loyalty, honor, and vengeance.

The first exciting footage from the action thriller Last Knights has arrived. Kazuaki Kiriya, known for cult hits Goemon and Casshern, returns to direct Clive Owen, Morgan Freeman and an ensemble of up and coming actors in this tale that follows a group of warriors out to avenge their master.
Academy Award Nominee Clive Owen delivers an electrifying performance in Last Knights. He stars as a fallen warrior who rises against a corrupt and sadistic ruler to avenge his dishonored master, Academy Award Winner Morgan Freeman. This is an epic, sword-clashing adventure full of loyalty, honor, and vengeance.
Take a look at the first footage from Last Knights, which comes to select theaters and On Demand April 3. Will these fallen soldiers be able to rally and get revenge against this evil, all-ruling emperor? If you love a good swashbuckling tale full of swords and swinging fists, you won't want to miss this epic! »
When you have a film boasting the likes of Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman in the leads and it comes out straight to VOD and home video with a handful of theatrical dates thrown in to sweeten the pot ... well, something's gone badly wrong. So let's not have any illusions about the upcoming Last Knights being a particularly good film because the likelihood of that being the case is quite small. But, that said, the film is the English language debut of Casshern and Goemon director Kaz Kiriya, who very much knows his way around a pretty picture so there should at least be some quality visuals to enjoy.Academy Award® Nominee Clive Owen (Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Closer, 2004)...

Once every decade or so, a dashing white guy warrior fights his way through a "Last" movie. In 1992, it was"Last of the Mohicans." 11 years later, "The Last Samurai." 12 years after that, we come to "Last Knights," a new action-fantasy-adventure epic starring Clive Owen as a fallen warrior and Morgan Freeman as either the sadistic ruler he is fighting or the master he is avenging. The trailer isn't too clear on that point, but does include the phrase "the wounds of honor are self-inflicted," which is undeniably awesome. (Side note: if some intelligent person would like to leave a comment verifying whether or not the word "cancer" existed in the Dark Ages, I'd kind of like to know!) "Last Knights" opens in select theaters and on demand April 3. Watch the castle-tastic trailer below: Read More: Watch: 'Whiplash' Gets Hilariously Parodied in 'Steel Whiplash' Short »

Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen star in Japanese photographer-turned-filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya's "Last Knights," which centers on a band of warriors who seek to avenge the loss of their master at the hands of a corrupt emperor. Owen plays Raiden, a hero who rises up with his men on a mission of revenge for their dishonored master, played by Freeman, and take on a corrupt ruler in Aksel Hennie. It's a project that's actually been sitting around for a few years (it was initially announced, and shot in 2012). Director Kiriya's last 2 films - "Goemon" (based on a Japanese folk legend that echoes the story of Robin Hood) and »

Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman are two of my favorite actors. While Freeman has garnered the critical acclaim and trophies to make any number of bad movies, Clive Owen has yet to maintain the A-list status deserving of his acting talents. Last Knights doesn't look like it will do much to turn that around for either of them. Directed by Kazuaki Kiriya (Casshern), Last Knights looks like a cross between King Arthur and the recent Nicolas Cage movie Outcast. Clive Owen plays Raiden, a »

A trailer has been released for the medieval actioner Last Knights which sees Clive Owen as a knight leading a band of warriors looking to avenge the loss of their dishonoured master (Morgan Freeman); check it out below after the official synopsis…
A knight seeks vengeance when his lord is unjustly executed by a tyrannical emperor. Knight’s commander Raiden (Clive Owen) receives an honor above all else when Bartok (Morgan Freeman), his childless lord, names him as his heir. But his happiness is destroyed when the emperor’s evil emissary Mott (Aksel Hennie) forces him to behead his surrogate father, and casts him and his men out of their castle divested of all titles and livelihood. But even as the paranoid Mott seeks to erase any trace of the Bartok’s clan and legacy, Raiden secretly conspires an audacious plan to infiltrate Mott’s impenetrable fortes and exact revenge. »

Though filmed two years ago, the Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman-led "Last Knights" looks to be finally arriving on screens. Set in a medieval fantasy-land, Owen plays a swordsman hired by a dishonoured Lord (Freeman) to lead a band of warriors against corrupt ruler (Aksel Hennie). Kazuaki Kiriya ("Casshern," "Goemen") directed the project which will get a day-and-day limited theatrical and VOD release in the United States on April 3rd.

Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman join forces for Kazuaki Kiriya's (the Japanese language Casshern and Geomon) medieval action movie Last Knights, following Owen's fierce warrior as he leads a small force to avenge his dishonoured master (Freeman, sporting some fantastic facial hair). The trailer, via USA Today, may have the feeling of low rent Game of Thrones about it, but you do get the feeling there is fun action movie hidden in there. Check it out below. Released: April 3rd (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) »

Game of Thrones might be one of the most popular medieval-esque epics ever, as it counts the likes of Diana Rigg, Charles Dance, Natalie Dormer, and Peter Dinklage among its cast. But does it have Morgan Freeman? No? Well, Last Knights does, so you should watch it instead.
Last Knights features Morgan Freeman as…someone with a very deep and pleasant voice, who may or may not be the antagonist. It also has Clive Owen brandishing a sword and looking very dark and grimy. The plot consists of a tale of a warrior (Owen) who leads a band to avenge their dishonored master. It looks somewhat like a medieval English version of a samurai flick, which makes sense when we realize that the director is Kazuaki Kiriya, who did Goemon, based on a Japanese folk legend that sounds a lot like Robin Hood.

Filmed a full two years ago, Last Knights has been inhabiting a misty limbo-land waiting for release. It seems it's finally emerging, blinking into the sunlight of 2015, however, and to prove it here's a trailer to show us what we've been missing while we watched Game Of Thrones instead. Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman are the stars, both upstaged by Freeman's moustache.Shot in and around Prague but set in a medieval fantasy-land, Last Knights is the story of Owen's Raiden, a swordsman employed by Freeman's dishonoured Lord Bartok to lead a band of warriors against corrupt ruler Gezza Mott (Headhunters' Aksel Hennie).Kazuaki Kiriya is the director, making his first film on actual sets and locations, following the entirely green-screen antics of Casshern and Goemon. Michael Konyves (Barney's Version) and Dove Sussman worked on the screenplay, and Last Knights gets an online and limited theatrical release in the Us »
It's been 11 years since Clive Owen strapped on some armor as King Arthur in the 2004 medieval action drama of the same name, and now he's picking up the sword again in The Last Knights. The film was shot in 2012 by Japanese filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya (The Legend of Goemon), but it's been sitting on a shelf waiting for release since then. And now that the first trailer has arrived, it's easy to see why no one has been clamoring to get this movie on the big screen. The epic follows Owen as a fallen warrior who rises against a corrupt and sadistic ruler (Aksel Hennie) to avenge his dishonored master (Morgan Freeman). Watch? Here's the first trailer for Kazuaki Kiriya's The Last Knights from USA Today: The Last Knights is directed by Kazuaki Kiriya (The Legend of Goemon) with a script from Michael Konyves (Barney’s Version). The film follows Clive Owen (Sin City, »

If it wasn't for Steven Soderbergh's "The Knick" what would Clive Owen have to cling toc For now he has Last Knights in which he plays Raiden, a fallen warrior who rises against a corrupt and sadistic ruler to avenge his dishonored master. Morgan Freeman co-stars and Kazuaki Kiriya directs a script by Michael Konyves (Barney's Version). Lionsgate will release the film, which began production in 2012, in theaters and On Demand on April 3. Man, I remember the days when it seemed a sure thing Clive Owen would become the next James Bond. Back in 2005, Owen was said to be in the running alongside Daniel Craig and "nip/tuck" star Julian McMahon. As we all know, the role went to Craig and now look what has happened to the two other contenders... though Owen does contend we was never offered the part. »
