Will 'True Detective' Revive Vince Vaughn? Actor Joins Mel Gibson Drama

30 July 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

If you're watching "True Detective," it's hard to buy that Vince Vaughn's performance as crooked Vinci ringleader Frank Semyon could put the defibrillators on his career. The actor, long known for his goofy comic turns, postures a faux-seriousness that whiffs of Matthew McConaughey's brooding season one turn, and a face that says, "I'm thinking about Emmys." (When "Delivery Man" opened in 2013, we called him a "toxic comedian" who "has burned many smart moviegoers over the years.") But Vaughn clearly wants to buff his dramatic chops. After "True Detective," he will usher into Mel Gibson's World War II drama "Hacksaw Ridge," Deadline reports. He's set to star opposite Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington in Gibson's first film since 2006's "Apocalypto." Distributed by Lionsgate, "Hacksaw" will shoot in Australia.

Vince Vaughn Stays Serious, Goes To Mel Gibson's 'Hacksaw Ridge' With Andrew Garfield

30 July 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While it didn't quite become the Matthew McConaughey style career changer for Vince Vaughn, his turn as gangster Frank Semyon in this season of "True Detective" is a reminder to many that, given the opportunity, the actor, best known for his comic roles, can go serious when required. And it would appear that he wants to stay in that mood for now. Deadline reports Vaughn has joined Mel Gibson's next directorial effort, "Hacksaw Ridge," starring Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington. While the trade says Robert Schenkkan ("The Quiet American") and Randall Wallace ("Braveheart") penned the script, Inside Film lists Andrew Knight ("The Water Diviner") and Schenkkan, but not Wallace. I guess the credits are still being worked out. As for the movie, it will tell the true-story tale of Desmond Doss, the only conscientious objector to earn a Congressional Medal Of Honor.

Vince Vaughn Joins Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge WWII Film

Apparently Mel Gibson is out of Hollywood jail, because he's preparing to direct "Hacksaw Ridge," which was just joined by Vince Vaughn. The rest of the cast includes Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington. The movie tells the true WWII story of Corporal Desmond Doss (Garfield), the first conscientious objector to receive the Us congressional Medal of Honor after acts of bravery and sacrifice saving 75 men during the Battle of Okinawa. Vaughn is playing Sgt. Howell, a non-commissioned officer who prepares his soldiers for battle by pushing them to their limits both physically and mentally in order to keep them alive. When Doss refuses to shoot and kill the enemy, it contradicts everything the sergeant knows about war. »

A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Everest brings you to the mountains of Nepal for an incredible adventure.

The upcoming disaster epic tells the true story of 1996's Mount Everest disaster, when eight climbers became trapped in a brutal blizzard.

Universal Pictures' latest profile of Everest follows the actors and filmmakers on set in the snow-covered mountains of Nepal.

"It's a big-scale movie and it's not easy to shoot," star Jason Clarke says. "You've got to go to Nepal. That means you've got to shoot in the mountains. You need real weather and snow."

"[Director Baltasar Kormákur] wanted us to experience the elements," Jake Gyllenhaal adds. "He pushed us in that way."

Everest also features Josh Brolin, Robin Wright, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Sam Worthington in its story of the rescue attempts to save eight trapped climbers.

Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

25 July 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

10 Reasons Tom Hardy Must Be The Next James Bond

20th Century Fox

“The name’s Bond… James Bond” – an iconic line that has graced the lips of a select few screen legends from the debonair highs of Sean Connery and David Niven to the rough and ready depths of Timothy Dalton and Daniel Craig with a dollop of cinema’s finest cheese inbetween ala George Lazenby, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan. But with Daniel Craig’s contract up, everyone is wondering which actor will be next.

There’s no shortage of speculation but if you’re a betting (wo)man you’ll find yourself drawn to some of British film’s finest men of the moment.

In the frame for filling 007’s shoes (and the bookies’ betting cards) include: Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan, The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill, The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne, Avatar’s Sam Worthington, »
