The Film Experience does not endorse tattoos. That shit is crazy permanent and who wants to wear the same thing every day of one's life? But tattoos can sometimes look good in a photo shoot, with the right body, or work well in dramatic or comic context. Two current magazine covers remind us of the ink fad which shows no signs of abating. (When I was a wee bairn the only tattoos I ever saw were on bikers and Popeye the Sailor Man. Now every third person on the street is sporting them.)
Ass dimples forever!
You guys. I got the best swag in the mail yesterday. A copy of Veep Season 2 along with Vice President Selena Meyer's book "Some New Beginnings - Our Next American Journey" which I hope is a plot point on Season 3. The jacket is very funny, with choice pull quotes, and a lot of vague meaningless inspirational double speak. »

James Gandolfini's final performance is put on display for the first time in the trailer for The Drop, formerly known as Animal Rescue. The late actor, who passed away in June shortly after wrapping on this crime drame, plays Marv, the employer and cousin of Boston bartender Bob Sacinowski (Tom Hardy), who gets caught in the middle of a robbery gone bad and the investigation that follows which uncovers secrets from the neighborhood's past. Noomi Rapace co-stars in director Michael R. Roskam's adaptation of Dennis Lehane's short story, arriving in theaters September 19.
The Drop is a new crime drama from Michael R. Roskam, the Academy Award-nominated director of Bullhead. Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters - "money drops" - in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. »

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the trailer for the upcoming crime drama “The Drop” starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville. The film will primarily be known for one thing…James Gandolfini’s final film.
The film follows a lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters — “money drops” — in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost. »

Of course, I use the names Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in the headline because it's more eye-grabbing for more people. I could have also used James Gandolfini (in his final film) or Matthias Schoenaerts if I had more space, but the big draw for me with this first trailer for The Drop (previously titled Animal Kingdom) is that it comes from Bullhead director Michael R. Roskam and was written by "Shutter Island" and "Gone Baby Gone" author, Dennis Lehane (based upon his short story "Animal Rescue"). The film takes an inside look at Organized crime's use of local New York City bars as money-laundering 'drops'. When lonely Brooklyn bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) uncovers a drop of a different sort in the form of a battered pit bull puppy that he rescues from certain death, he comes into contact with Nadia (Rapace), a mysterious woman hiding a dark past.

After stills released a few days ago we now have the first trailer for The Drop starring Tom Hardy & James Gandolfini available for your viewing pleasure. The crime drama is based on Hardy’s character who runs a bar where the local criminals hide their money. The bar is robbed and Hardy, along with his Uncle played by Gandolfini, are caught up in an investigation and possible revenge from the criminals whose money has been taken.
From the looks of the trailer we can expect a dark, gritty and intense drama with some powerful performances; we dread to think what cruel fate awaits Hardy’s pet dog and the fact the movie was originally called Animal Rescue doesn’t install much hope into proceedings.

Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for the crime drama The Drop. Tom Hardy plays Bob, a former criminal and current bartender working at a bar that serves as a money “drop” for local gangsters. When the bar gets robbed, Bob and his cousin/employer Marv (James Gandolfini) find themselves in the crosshairs of an investigation and the criminal underworld. Directed by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead) working from a script by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone), who adapted his own short story, I have high hopes for this one, not only because of the talent on board, but because it's Gandolfini's final film, and I want his filmography to go out on a high note. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville. The Drop opens September 19th. Here's the official synopsis for The Drop »

"Tom was intensely inquisitive," screenwriter Dennis Lehane told USA Today about Tom Hardy's turn. "He mined every single piece of marrow out of that character." And those are encouraging words to hear about "The Drop," the forthcoming film that brings together a helluva ensemble for a tale rich with possibility. Co-starring the late James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts, and directed by "Bullhead" filmmaker Michael Roskam, this one follows an ex-con trying to go straight, working a legit job in a bar, whose life gets upended by a robbery gone wrong. It's potent stuff, particularly for this Boston Brooklyn-set tale, and Roskam knew he had a great duo in Hardy and Gandolfini. "I could see there was a bit of a smile between them. It was like, 'We're going to nail this, right?' " Roskam said of the production. "And they did this intense scene and were just spot on. »

Remember those photos from last year of Tom Hardy snuggling an adorable pit bull puppy on the set of an upcoming movie? Now you can check out the fruits of his fuzzy labor in this trailer for "The Drop," which was previously known as "Animal Rescue."
Hardy co-stars with the late James Gandolfini as Bob and Marv, two Brooklyn guys on the periphery of the underworld. Bob's trying to keep his nose clean, what with the aforementioned puppy and a girlfriend (Noomi Rapace) and a regular gig as a bartender, but he happens to be working at a bar that's used as a money drop for local criminals. He and his cousin Marv get in the middle of a big old mess when their bar is held up and some local guys (led by Matthias Schoenaerts) make off with all the cash.
It won't be easy to watch Gandolfini in »

2013 was a pretty awful year for Hollywood in terms of the actors we lost, and perhaps no death was as shocking and unexpected as that of The Sopranos star James Gandolfini, who passed away from a heart attack at age 51 last June. However, filmgoers have still not seen the last of the prolific actor, who posthumously touched our hearts with the bittersweet romantic comedy Enough Said and is also set to star in an upcoming drama titled The Drop.
Today, the first images from The Drop, which also stars Tom Hardy as a bartender whose life takes an unusual turn after he rescues a wounded dog, have surfaced online, and you can check them out below. Of course, while seeing images of Gandolfini is a melancholy experience, I’m also looking forward to seeing his final performance. The actor was such an indomitable presence on screen, as any watchers of The Sopranos surely know, »

It was only last summer that we heard the very sad news of James Gandolfini’s passing but we’re all very interested to see him back on the big screen for the final time, alongside Tom Hardy in The Drop, formerly titled Animal Rescue.
Based on the short story by Dennis Lehane, you’ll know Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River as some of his other work, it’s directed by Michaël R. Roskam who’s only previous feature was the compelling Bullhead. At a very basic level, we know the film is most definitely an underground crime-drama that’s centered around a lost pit bull that Tom Hardy’s character Bob Saginowski rescues, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing.

The English-language debut of Michael R. Roskam ("Bullhead"), Tom Hardy stars as a New York bartender who comes upon a wounded dog which leads to his life being turned upside down.

A belated festival premiere for Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” and a powerhouse showing for British filmmakers including Mike Leigh and Ken Loach — plus appearances by other usual suspects such as David Cronenberg, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nuri Bilge Ceylan and the Dardenne brothers — are among the strong possibilities hovering over the lineup of the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival.
In recent years, festival topper Thierry Fremaux and his selection committee have tended to push their final decisions to the very last minute under a nearly impenetrable veil of secrecy, defying the intense media scrutiny and endless speculation that always swirl around the Cannes lineup at this time of year. Although anything could change between now and April 17, when the official selection is unveiled — there are still enough hotly anticipated titles in the mix to warrant some educated guesswork about what is shaping up to be a promisingly diverse slate of auteurs. »

Nicole Holofcener's "Enough Said" was routinely referred to as the late James Gandolfini's final film last year, but luckily we do actually have one more big screen appearance from the actor in Michaël Roskam's "The Drop," which hits theaters in September. A few images from the film dropped today over at USA Today with thoughts from Roskam and others on the director's "Bullhead" follow-up. Much of the interview details how well Gandolfini and co-star Tom Hardy got on while shooting the film, formerly called "Animal Rescue." The film tells the story of a former criminal (Hardy) looking to pull his life back together as a bartender at a dive that serves as a money drop for local gangsters. You can imagine from whence the drama will spring: former con trying to make right surrounded by cons. Yeah. "Bullhead" star Matthias Schoenaerts also plays a key role. The film »

Here are the first images from the final James Gandolfini film, The Drop. Once called Animal Rescue, the tense Brooklyn-set drama also features Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts, under the direction of Bullhead helmer Michael Roskam. Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone) scripted the crime drama, which features Gandolfini as a former criminal whose cousin, played by Tom Hardy, […]

Last year we lost one of the greats, with the sudden passing of James Gandolfini. But lucky for us, he still had a couple movies coming that demonstrated he was an actor who had so much more to explore. Last fall he showed a charmingly softer, gentler side in the underrated "Enough Said" and this fall he hits the hard streets of Boston in "The Drop." If you haven't heard of it, you may remember it under its former title "Animal Rescue," but either way, it's coming and a batch of new stills has arrived to give a bit of taste. The cast and talent for this one are great, with Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts all featuring in the Michael Roskam ("Bullhead") directed movie about an ex-con, working at a bar and trying to go straight with a girlfriend and a rescued pit bull, only to have »
