'Point Break' Remake First Pictures, Bracey and Ramirez are Utah and Bodhi

22 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »

Point Break remake: first pictures, official synopsis

21 April 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez star in the new Point Break movie. And here are the first pics to prove it...

Like it or not - and 'not' appears to be the consensus thus far - the remake of Point Break is edging ever closer. The movie is set for release in cinemas later this year, with Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez leading the cast. Ericson Core is directing this time, and also in the ensemble are Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo.

The plan with Point Break is to have it in cinemas this December, and Warner Bros has released the first two images from the movie. Inevitably, these don't tell you much more than the fact that extreme sports remain involved. They're also a reminder that Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze aren't in it.

Here are the pics...

Point Break Remake Images Feature Surfing, Running, But No Keanu

21 April 2015 6:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have released the first Point Break images from director Ericson Core’s (Invincible) upcoming remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 film of the same name. The redo stars Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, a young FBI agent who infiltrates a team of thrill-seeking athletes led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). These images don’t reveal much, but they do seem to confirm that Core’s film leans heavily on the “extreme sports” world to bring the thrills to the big screen. Indeed, Core not only serves as the film’s director, but also the director of photography. Check out the photos below, via Warner Bros., and look for Steve’s reaction to seeing the first footage from the pic later on Collider. The film also stars Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo. Point Break opens in 2D and 3D on December 25th.

Flickering Myth Podcast Review – The Gunman (2015)

23 March 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth Podcast grabs some guns…

On today’s episode of the Flickering Myth Podcast, Luke Owen, Scott Davis and Rohan Morbey sit down to give their thoughts on Sean Penn’s attempt at “doing a Liam Neeson” with The Gunman, from the director of Taken. The trilogy also discuss the idea of having older action stars and whether this fad is over before its started in the wake of The Gunman bombing at the box office.

Sean Penn’s The Gunman bombs at the box office

23 March 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since the release of Taken in 2009, it seems that older actors are trying to jump on board the action train. Sean Penn’s The Gunman is the next stop, but his first attempt has not been overly successful.

Opening to very middling reviews (the film currently holds 14% on Rotten Tomatoes and 39 on Metacritic), The Gunman has opened to just $5 million domestically with no word yet on how it did internationally. The reported budget for the film is $40 million, so this is undoubtedly unfortunate news for the various production companies who financed the movie.

This puts The Gunman on par with other 2015 box office flops Mortdecai, Blackhat, Unfinished Business and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and is a fraction of what 3 Days to Kill made last year on its opening weekend – perhaps showing that the popularity of this subgenre has started to fall already. »

Weekend Box Office: Insurgent Commands Top Spot, Gunman Misfires

22 March 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Divergent Series returned to theaters this weekend with the second of four movies in the film franchise. One year after Divergent opened at number one with $54 million, its sequel did exactly the same thing. Insurgent debuted in the box office top spot with $54 million, neither improving on or falling behind its predecessor. That's good news for Lionsgate given that the first and second parts of the third book which will make up the third and fourth movies (after all, it wouldn't be a young adult book-to-movie franchise if the last installation wasn't split to be mined for every penny it was worth) are set to hit theaters in March of the next two years. Sean Penn's latest, The Gunman, which has an international leading man appeal with a cast that include Jaiver Barden, Idris Alba and Ray Winstone, flopped hard.

Film Review: Lack of Cohesiveness, Intrigue Stymies ‘The Gunman’

20 March 2015 9:03 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If you’re going to see a Sean Penn action movie, I guess “The Gunman” would be appropriate. As he and the filmmakers inject some reality in the usual motivations, the puzzle pieces don’t connect well and in the end are not that interesting. That is not to say that the film is bad.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Sporting a body that he doesn’t mind exposing as shirtless while in his fiftysomething status, Penn is a thinking man’s action hero, part assassin and part humanitarian. It’s rather interesting that he kills someone Lee Harvey Oswald style, but after that the story devolves into a vague revenge on that hit, seemingly seven years later, yet with the same ripples over Sean’s muscly form. There are some good moments, including a booby trap that needs to be reactivated, but overall the movie almost dares you not to care, and the female lead follows suit. »

Interview: Director Pierre Morel on Sean Penn, Liam Neeson & His Latest ‘The Gunman’

20 March 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – There were basically two careers for Pierre Morel, before he directed the mega-hit “Taken,” starring Liam Neeson, and afterward. The French-born cinematographer, camera operator and now director is releasing “The Gunman,” an action film that stars Sean Penn. Like “Taken,” the motivations for the action are based in the real world, and “The Gunman” travels to Africa, London and Barcelona on his way to redeeming his soul.

Morel has had an adventurous career, in both European cinema and in notable films, beginning with his days as a camera operator on “The Truth about Charlie” (2002), “The Dreamers” (2003) and “Before Sunset” (2004). He was the cinematographer on “The Transporter” (2002) and Director of Photography on “Love and Other Disasters” (2006). His breakthrough came in 2008, when he directed “Taken.” The film resonated with audiences, and allowed his career to move into a new direction.

Keanu Classic: Point Break

20 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.

John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. He might not be known as being the most heavyweight of actors but you have to admit the man knows how to make an entertaining movie, and he’s not bad to look at. Even if everything else about the film is terrible or ridiculously over the top, Keanu is always awesome – Jonnhy Mnemonic and Chain Reaction would be nothing without him.

Every Friday between now and the release of John Wick on 10th April, »

Movie Review – The Gunman (2015)

20 March 2015 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Gunman, 2015.

Directed by Pierre Morel.

Starring Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone and Javier Bardem.

Synopsis:

A sniper on a mercenary assassination team, kills the minister of mines of the Congo. Terrier’s successful kill shot forces him into hiding. Returning to the Congo years later, he becomes the target of a hit squad himself.

In 2009 director Pierre Morel resurrected Liam Neeson’s career while simultaneously transforming him into an action star that as of late, is simply allergic to playing hard-boiled, down on their luck bad-asses that have a score to settle or someone to protect. You can’t go two months without Liam Neeson invading your local cinema, which makes the accomplishment of Morel’s Taken franchise that much more remarkable. So here we have The Gunman, which doesn’t star Liam Neeson but rather Sean Penn. Why? Maybe they thought lightning would strike twice, »

The Gunman – The Review

19 March 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Aloha, Mr. Hand! The grades are in and Sean Penn has not passed his ‘Basic Action Hero’ class. As Penn sneers and scowls his way through the routine globe-hopping hitman adventure The Gunman, his angry, sour puss sucks all of the joy out of every scene. Penn plays Martin Terrier (Martin Pitbull would be more badass!), an ex-special forces operative turned hired hitman working for one of those unnamed outfits that hires ex-special forces operatives turned hired hitmen. He’s good at his job, but he’s one miserable guy and his heart really isn’t into killing. All he wants is some tasty waves, a cool buzz and to settle down with his sweetheart, the French doctor Annie played by Jasmine Trica. Terrier is introduced doing mercenary work in the Democratic Republic of Congo. His local connection Felix (Javier Bardem) is the go-between when Terrier is contracted to assassinate »
