Us ultra-VoD release for Oz thriller

3 March 2015 1:15 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Kriv Stenders. Kill Me Three Times will be released on iTunes and other VoD platforms in the Us on March 26, ahead of the theatrical premiere in around a dozen cities on April 10.

There is no Australian release date yet for the comedy thriller scripted by James McFarland, which stars Simon Pegg as an assassin who encounters a group of increasingly violent locals, together with Alice Braga, Luke Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer and Sullivan Stapleton.

The gap between the Us and Australian release raises the prospect the film will be susceptible to online piracy, which has recently blighted Wyrmwood: Road to the Dead, The Little Death and John Doe: Vigilante.

But producer Tania Chambers tells If, .We are looking forward to as many people as possible seeing our film. We continue to believe that some people understand that piracy doesn't support creative people to get our stories to Aussies and the world. »

Tom Cruise Races Back To Action In New Mission: Impossible 5 Set Photos & Video

2 March 2015 2:30 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

About ten days ago, with rumors circulating about Paramount's Mission: Impossible 5 possibly shutting down production to rework the finale, director Christopher McQuarrie had to come out and quickly debunk the rumor. With that out of the way, McQuarrie and the MI5 team got back to work on the exhilarating finale and over the past week, set photos have surfaced featuring superstar Tom Cruise running back into action as Imf Agent Ethan Hunt alongside franchise newcomer Rebecca Ferguson. The rest of the main cast, which includes Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Alec Baldwin, weren't spotted on the street, but if the finale of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is anything to go by, they should all be involved in the finale in one way or another. Take a look below at a brief set video of Cruise on the street, courtesy of the DailyMail, and photos courtesy of Just Jared and ComingSoon. »

More Evidence That Simon Pegg Is In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

2 March 2015 5:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New comments from a member of the production crew all but guarantee that Simon Pegg has some sort of role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Jedi News found an interview in The National with a pilot responsible for capturing a lot of the film’s aerial shots. “We sat on the next table to Abrams and Simon Pegg,” he said, referring to the shoot in Abu Dhabi, adding, “There were big fairy things, sasquatch, and dwarfs dressed in ragged clothes.”

While it’s hard to say what big fairy things or dwarfs might be, you can be pretty sure Chewbacca was the sasquatch, and Simon Pegg – well, he leaves no ambiguity there.

This isn’t the first report of Pegg being in Abu Dhabi, with IGN saying he was spotted on set, and there was also some circumstantial evidence placing him at Elstree during the UK portion of production. »

Christopher McQuarrie denies report that Paramount wants to reshoot Mission: Impossible 5 finale

21 February 2015 12:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday it was reported by THR that production had been shut down on Mission: Impossible 5 in order to provide time for director Christopher McQuarrie to come up with a “new and improved finale” for the latest chapter of the blockbuster spy series.

According to the initial report, Paramount executives were disappointed with the ending to the film and were demanding reshoots to the finale. Well, it seems that might not be the case after all, as McQuarrie has now taken to Twitter to debunk the story, stating that filming had never wrapped, and the plan was to take “a short break to prep the finale properly”.

Mission: Impossible 5 is set for release on July 31st, with Tom Cruise in joined by fellow franchise veterans eremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames and new additions Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), Sean Harris (Prometheus) and Alec Baldwin (Still Alice).

'Mission: Impossible 5' Resumes Shooting; Photos Revealed

21 February 2015 9:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, it was widely reported that production had halted on the set of Mission: Impossible 5 so that the big climactic finale could be reworked. It seems that report, which generated at The Hollywood Reporter, was a little late in its arrival. Entertainment Weekly has confirmed today that, while shooting did stop, it was just over the course of this past week, and everything was back up and running last night.

In fact, a number of photos have come in from the set, as Tom Cruise filmed a late night action sequence as Ethan Hunt, running through the streets of London. Entertainment Weekly reports that the ending of the film only needed to be slightly tweaked, and what we see in these images is the revised finale as it comes together. The initial THR report claims that director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise were working with a third unidentified writer »

Trailer For Kill Me Three Times Is Very Nsfw

21 February 2015 2:20 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The red band trailer for Simon Pegg's latest, Kill Me Three Times looks like a whole load of fun. the only drawback is, it's quite spoilery, so avoid if you want to go into this with no clue what to expect. Kill Me Three Times stars Pegg as a hitman for hire who gets embroiled in three separate plots of murder, blackmail and revenge, all intertwined by the same group of people. Its a black comedy that picked up rave reviews from the handful of critics that have seen it. »

Bloody great red band trailer for Kill Me Three Times starring Simon Pegg

20 February 2015 11:03 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Back in December we shared a pretty fun trailer for the action comedy Kill Me Three Times starring the one and only Simon Pegg. It’s with great pleasure that we now provide you with an even better that has the always acceptable red band around it. It’s a black comedy in a lot of ways and looks to offer a lot of great, albeit somewhat ridiculous, action. I don't think Pegg could hold a bigger gun do you? Here’s the official synopsis and trailer - Nsfw, »

'Mission: Impossible 5' Stops Shooting to Find New Ending

20 February 2015 9:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Paramount Pictures made the surprising move to shift their upcoming action sequel Mission: Impossible 5 from December 25, 2015 to July 31, 2015. However, with the release just over five months away, production has halted for "a week or so" after the ending was deemed "unsatisfactory." Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie is currently working on a new ending with an unidentified "writer friend" who will not be paid or credited for his or her work. Here's what an anonymous source told The Hollywood Reporter about the shutdown.

"Chris, Tom [Cruise] and a third person wanted to take a minute to get from what they thought was a good place to a more perfect place."

The source added that the July 31 release date is still intact, and if the studio was really worried about the status of Mission: Impossible 5, they would have pushed the release date. This isn't the first time that Paramount has had third-act story issues. »

Watch: No One is Safe in 'Kill Me Three Times' Red Band Trailer (Nsfw)

19 February 2015 3:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Simon Pegg stars as a professional hitman in the upcoming action-comedy "Kill Me Three Times." After mucking up a job, Pegg's character is forced to do for himself what he typically does for other people: clean up the ensuing mess. Based on the red band trailer that dropped today, it's unclear whether Pegg's character is any good at his job. What we do know, however, is that the magnificent handlebar mustache he sports throughout the film should have received top billing alongside Pegg. "Kill Me Three Times" will be available on VOD and for digital download March 26. A theatrical release will follow on April 10.

Red Band Trailer Lands For Simon Pegg Hitman Comedy Kill Me Three Times

19 February 2015 1:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Magnet Releasing has dropped a new trailer for its upcoming comedy actioner, Kill Me Three Times. The film bowed last year on the festival circuit and has since garnered favorable reviews. Most of that accompanying praise has been directed at the movie’s leading man, Simon Pegg, whose inherent charm and likeability could transform this into a brilliant lil’ indie caper.

Directed by Kriv Stenders from a script by newcomer James McFarland, Kill Me Three Times focuses on Pegg’s morally-bankrupt assassin, Charlie Wolfe, who quickly agrees to a job promising him a 50 grand payday. He soon hightails it to the Aussie surfing town of Eagle’s Nest, where things get interesting. Not only is the hit on a rather attractive woman, but there’s also several other professionals after the loot. Things proceed to twist and turn from there as various secrets come to light.

Watch: Everybody Wants The Money In Red Band Trailer For 'Kill Me Three Times' With Simon Pegg

19 February 2015 12:12 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Movies are as complicated or as simple as you want them to be, and crime flicks don't need to be cluttered with narrative. Toss in a bag money, a bunch of characters who want the money, and you're off the races. It's the green stuff that's the center of attention in the red band trailer for "Kill Me Three Times." Simon Pegg leads an ensemble that includes Sullivan Stapleton, Alice Braga, Teresa Palmer, Callan Mulvey, Luke Hemsworth, and Bryan Brown in the tale of a hit man hired to kill a man's wife. Simple enough, but it seems there are more than few people who want her dead, there's the subject of that aforementioned cash, and more than a few twists along the way before this situation is resolved. There will be blood. "Kill Me Three Times" arrives on VOD on March 26th and in cinemas on April 10th. Watch below. »
