The 50 Best Action Movies of the 21st Century Thus Far

7 February 2017 10:18 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since the dawn of the 21st century, action cinema has undergone a bigger change than perhaps any other genre. As the tools with which filmmakers craft their works have continually advanced, a sort of renaissance has begun wherein action films stepped firmly into their own. Often put in the same category as horror — not taken seriously as a form of artistic expression outside of its core fanbase — action has had to boldly announce itself as a viable medium through which big set pieces, but also big ideas, can be presented and explored.

With the highly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 2 arriving in theaters this Friday, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s action films that have most excelled. To pick our top 50, we’ve reached out to all corners of the globe, choosing an array of films ranging from grand to gritty, brutal to beautiful. The result »

Roulette in the movies

5 February 2017 10:58 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The game of roulette is a simple one, and indeed a complex one at the same time. The game itself was invented in 18th century France. The name roulette actually means little wheel in its native language, obviously referring to the spinning device at the heart of the game. Its origins of the game in its current form can be traced back to a 1700s novel named La Roulette, ou le Jour by Jaques Lablee. While the game hails from 1796 Paris, roulette has, of course, made it to Hollywood and has been featured in countless movies over the years. Here we take a look at some of our favourites.

First on the list is a little known, but outstanding little independent movie name The Cooler from director Wayne Kramer, which was released all of the way back in 2003. The film is led by the brilliant William H. Macy who plays »

Luc Besson chats about casting Dane DeHaan in Valerian

30 January 2017 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jan 30, 2017

We've noticed that directors tend to get a bit wibbly when talking about actor Dane DeHaan, and Mr. Besson is no exception...

2017 looks set to finally be Dane DeHaan's time to shine.

27 January 2017 11:09 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Paolo Sorrentino has been making buzz with his HBO series “The Young Pope,” a provocative yet satisfyingly rich drama like no other. Now, the filmmaker returns behind the camera in the noir short film “Killer in Red.”

Starting Clive Owen, the project is an extended ad for the alcoholic liqueur Campari, written by Sorrentino and based on an original story by J. Walter Thompson.

Killer in Red” begins with a bartender making a cocktail when Owen, who is always late and “looks like a lot of people,” walks into the empty bar looking for a woman. While he waits for her, the man pours him a drink and tells him a story about his old bartender teacher, Floyd (Owen), who used to craft cocktails explicitly for people.

Clive Owen Serves Up Campari In New Short Film Directed By Paolo Sorrentino

27 January 2017 8:53 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When directors turn to commercials, the contained parameters of promotional materials means their trademark aesthetics can sometimes be heightened. And certainly for Paolo Sorrentino, his penchant for decadence is very much on display in this short film for Campari.

Clive Owen stars as the world’s sexiest bartender, who serves up drinks and stories to a variety of attractive women, leading to the creation of the titular drink. It’s a nifty premise that’s played out in high style, with plenty of ’80s costuming, a sprawling cast, and visual pizzazz.

Casinos and their influence on the movies

13 January 2017 1:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cinema is now over a hundred years old, the very first movie cameras being invented all of the way back in the 1890s. With the invention of this new tool and the decades since, film has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry and is constantly changing. One may say that today’s audiences are happier sat in front of a comic book or superhero movies, or being transported to a galaxy far, far away, but in fact there are many influences to the modern film, none more popular than the casino-themed motion picture.

Casinos have influenced film in many ways over the years, and can be traced way back to the very early days of cinema, but you have to look back at the year 1965 for one of the first proper casino movies to hit cinema screens. That film was The Cincinnati Kid, a picture that saw Hollywood hot property »

Oscars 2017: Does Aaron Taylor-Johnson Stand a Chance at Best Supporting Actor After Winning the Golden Globe?

While last night’s Golden Globes unequivocally belonged to La La Land, it started out with one of the biggest shocks of this awards season: Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals. Does this surprise upset mean the British thespian is gearing up for winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars?

It’s important to first note that even Taylor-Johnson’s Golden Globes nomination wasn’t expected by most awards season prognosticators and, if someone from Tom Ford’s latest flick were to have a shot at the trophy, their money was placed on co-star Michael Shannon. And when it came to winning most had their money on Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Dev Patel (Lion), or even Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins) — not Taylor-Johnson. »

New Valerian Pic Unveils A High-Ranking Alien; Luc Besson Teases “Rich World”

4 January 2017 6:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After dabbling with cerebral science fiction in 2014’s Lucy, writer-director Luc Besson is set to introduce moviegoers to a brand new, and wildly ambitious space opera later this year.

It’s called Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, an effects-laden blockbuster that has already drawn comparisons to Jupiter Ascending and, perhaps most exciting of all, The Fifth Element, Besson’s cult sci-fi that’s set to ring in its 20th anniversary in 2017 – how very apropos. But in tapping into the French graphic novel by Pierre Christin, Luc Besson is engineering a fairly different cinematic experience with Valerian, which can essentially be pitched as an intergalactic road trip movie concerning two cops (Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan) who fight to protect a utopian 28th century Earth and its neighboring planets from the baddies.

Expect themes of time travel and other sci-fi conventions to rear their head in Valerian, one »
