28 October 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Can you believe the holiday movie season is almost here? More importantly than that, can you believe some of Hollywood's most anticipated new flicks for 2015 are just mere months away?  One movie that a lot of moviegoers are waiting for is "Insurgent," the sequel to last year's blockbuster, "Divergent." The second installment of Veronica Roth's "Divergent" novels, "Insurgent" finds our future heroes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) doing their best to stop different factions from destroying the balance in their society. The first movie helped transform Woodley into a legitimate movie star and her co-stars Angel Elgort ("The Fault in Our Stars") and Miles Tellar ("Whiplash") have only become more popular in the months following its release. Adding to the excitement are the additions of Octavia Spencer (playing Johanna), Ray Stevenson (as Marcus Eaton) and Naomi Watts (portraying Everlyn) to the cast. Lionsgate is slowly beginning to »

Photo: Ed Skrein Is The New "Transporter"

15 September 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first photo has arrived of former "Game of Thrones" actor Ed Skrein starring as the new Frank Martin in Camille Delamarre's "The Transporter Legacy".

IGN premiered the pic of Skrein, who takes over the role previously played by Jason Statham in the previous three "The Transporter" films and Chris Vance in the EuropaCorp TV series.

In this take, Frank still has his usual three rules and will deliver anything for a price. He soon draws the attention of the lethal Anna (Loan Chabanol), a woman who takes Frank's father (Ray Stevenson) hostage to ensure Frank will help her take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers she has been pursuing.

This new version of the "Transporter" is scheduled to park itself in cinemas on March 6th 2015.

Ed Skrein Replaces Jason Statham in First Image From The Transporter Reboot

12 September 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We all complain about reboots and remakes, but when Hollywood decides that now is the time to reboot The Transporter franchise, you can’t help but bring out the clichéd “They’re running out of new ideas!” argument.

Jason Statham won’t be back, and replacing him is sorta-lookalike Ed Skrein, an actor you may remember (albeit with a bit more hair) as playing Daario Naharis in season three of Game of Thrones. The cast is rounded out by Ray Stevenson, Radivoje Bukvic, Gabriella Wright, Anatole Taubman and Tatiana Pajkovic.

Bill Collage and Adam Cooper (Accepted and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie) penned the screenplay and Camille Delamarre directs. The Transporter Legacy is set to be released on March 6th, 2015.

The first few movies were met with a mixed/mostly negative response from critics, but this reboot could potentially be an improvement on the previous instalments. If nothing else, »

Big Game Review | Tiff 2014

12 September 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A good thirty minutes into Jalmari Helander’s Big Game, a thought arises that never ceases to fade: “Shouldn’t I be having more fun considering the goofy premise?”  It’s a kid in the wilderness who’s forced to protect the President of the United States.  Then you cast Samuel L. Jackson—a man whose ubiquity and longevity in spite of some seriously questionable choice in projects is a testament to his enduring popularity—as the President. Unfortunately, while Helander and co-writer Petri Jokiranta have a promising set-up, they’re never certain if they should let the comedy come from playing it straight or if they should go broad and silly, so the film ends up falling into bland ambivalence. Oskari (Onni Tommila) is a 13-year-old Finnish boy who must go into the woods and kill an animal as a right of passage into his community.  It’s particularly »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Big Game’

12 September 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine a movie of the “Only one man can save the President” ilk, change that to “Only one boy…” and you’ve got the gist of “Big Game.” This , where he has only a local 13-year-old to keep him alive — and one step ahead of his assassins. Where writer-helmet Jalmari Helander’s prior Xmas nightmare, “Rare Exports,” was a distinctively Finnish product (albeit one with high gloss), this sophomore feature is very much in the style of a big, bombastic Hollywood action pic. Whether it will be swallowed by the wider offshore audience desired is uncertain, since despite a tongue at least partly in cheek, it may well seem too ridiculous for subtitle-averse mainstream viewers.

On his 13th birthday, Oskari (“Export’s” Onni Tommila) is taken by his famed-hunter father (Jorma Tomilla) high into the mountains. There he’ill undergo a traditional rite of passage by spending 24 hours in the wilderness alone, »

Tiff Review: 'Big Game' Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent And More

12 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Early on in "Big Game," someone is spectacularly blown up by a surface-to-air missile. It's a key moment, with Jalmari Helander's ("Rare Exports") exceedingly dumb film seemingly taking the position that for the next (barely) ninety minutes it's going to be a knowingly insipid and campy genre throwback. Unfortunately, that's only the case in fits and starts. Blending a variety of tropes—from Spielberg-ian coming-of-age films, to lunkheaded shoot-me-ups of the '80s and '90s, to the ridiculous loglines of the Cannon Films catalog—"Big Game" attempts to both replicate those styles while also sending them up, but doesn't have assured grasp on tone to make it work. The film—which surprisingly managed to get a decent cast for this kind of thing—finds Samuel L. Jackson playing the unpopular President of the United States, William Moore. His poll numbers are tanking, and he's earned the resentment of »

Big Game Review [Tiff 2014]

9 September 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Big Game may be the most unlikely film to earn a premiere berth at the Toronto International Film Festival this year. Fortunately, its inclusion – as part of the Midnight Madness programme – is not a total waste. The sophomore feature from Rare Exports director Jalmari Helander is just not your typical film festival fare. It is a farfetched, sub-90 minute, action-packed adventure, smothered with cheese and featuring some of the most gleefully lunatic dialogue you can expect from a title where Samuel L. Jackson plays the President of the United States. Despite its silliness and reliance on genre tropes, you can’t deny that it is unabashed fun from the first frame.

Jackson plays President William Moore, who is considered a “lame duck” by the presses and has such little notoriety that a bunch of Finnish hunters don’t even recognize him. He is en route to Helsinki for a pre-G »

Toronto: EuropaCorp Jumps Into ‘Big Game’ With Sam Jackson

9 September 2014 5:26 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Another long night of deal-making will lead to a big $4 million EuropaCorp deal for Big Game, the Jalmari Helander-directed and -scripted film that stars Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States, who finds himself in the most unusual position. When Air Force One is downed by terrorists, the fate of the most powerful man on the planet lies in the hands of a 13-year-old boy. EuropaCorp makes this its first big acquisition since joint-venturing in the distribution pipeline Red, as Luc Besson and Christophe Lambert plan to control the release and marketing of its prolific volume of action films.

The deal is for U.S. rights, and it comes days after the film premiered to high praise in the Midnight Madness section. Multiple suitors have been chasing the film since its premiere, and EuropaCorp was particularly aggressive. The intriguing thing is that unlike most of Jackson’s films, »
