Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.
Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.
Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.
I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

Following yesterday's report that Bridesmaids star Rebel Wilson has met with director Paul Feig for a role in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, Jennifer Lawrence has also revealed that she met with the filmmaker. The actress said during an interview for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 that she had dinner with the filmmaker, but it isn't known if an official offer has been made to join the cast. Very little is known about the story, except that it will feature an all-female cast and that it won't be connected to the original Ghostbusters movies.
Jennifer Lawrence's revelation is just a small part of MTV UK's video compilation of several stars being asked who they want to see star in the new Ghostbusters reboot. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Emma Stone are among the names mentioned by a bevy of actors. Bill Murray himself endorsed this line-up for the project back in September. »

After so long working on the big screen it seems Martin Scorsese has really been bitten by the TV bug. Following an hour long pilot from the Boardwalk Empire team of Scorsese and writer Terence Winter, HBO have opted to make a full series from the as-yet untitled project, co-produced by no less a luminary than Mick Jagger. Starring Empire‘s Bobby Cannavale (pictured) as a washed-up record exec in the 1970s, the drama is sure to be packed to the rafters with quality tunes of the kind we’ve come to associate with the legendary director. And it’s surely a given that the sounds of sex, violence and snorting nostrils will feature as backing tracks.
Winter is showrunner and George Mastras (Breaking Bad) is on also on scripting duties. An impressive supporting cast includes Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple and Cannavale’s Blue Jasmine co-star/comedian Andrew Dice Clay. »

Premium cable network, HBO, is securing its future with two of their previous collaborators set to reunite for an as-yet untitled rock n’ roll drama series. Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter will be heading up the project as executive producers alongside Mick Jagger and Breaking Bad‘s George Mastras. Scorsese will take to the director’s chair for the pilot, while Winter and Mastras will both pen the series.
Based in New York, the 1970s period drama will “explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.” The hour-long show has been in development since 2011, but has only recently gathered steam – and a huge, starry cast. Despite the fact there’s no premiere date, or any indication about when production is expected to start, the powers »

The series will revolve in and around the fictional American Century Records.

HBO is getting back into business with Martin Scorsese. It was announced today that the network has ordered a new rock ‘n’ roll drama, which comes from the director, Breaking Bad‘s George Mastras, and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, to series. The still untitled 1970s drama focuses on “the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.” Bobby Cannavale (the infamous Gyp Rosetti from Season 3 of Boardwalk Empire) stars as Richie, “the founder and president of American Century Records, who has a great ear for discovering talent and who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.” Olivia Wilde (whose most recent TV appearances include BoJack Horseman and Portlandia) stars as Richie’s wife, with Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Parenthood) set as one of Richie’s partners. »

Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's drama about the '70s New York rock scene still doesn't have a title, but today it got something even better: a series order from HBO. Untitled Rock 'n' Roll Project will star Bobby Cannavale as the head of a floundering record label, Olivia Wilde as his bohemian wife, and Ray Romano as his rough-and-tumble business partner. Juno Temple, Andrew "Dice" Clay, and that guy from Wolf of Wall Street round out the cast. Terence Winter will serve as showrunner, bringing Boardwalk Empire's trademark blend of period flare and sad naked women to a new generation. Until this thing gets a title, we're just going to call it Punk-Rock Mad Men. »

Given Martin Scorsese’s attachment as executive producer and pilot director for his currently untitled rock and roll drama —Mick Jagger is also an executive producer— and his relationship with HBO, which ran “Boardwalk Empire” for five seasons (which Scorsese also exec-produced), it’s little surprise that the cable behemoth has picked up the show for a full series run. 'Boardwalk' showrunner and writer Terence Winter (who also wrote “The Wolf Of Wall Street”) will resume the same duties on this show. Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label with the next new sound. The show stars Bobby Cannavale (another “Boardwalk Empire” alum), Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Ray Romano among others. HBO has released the names of the entire cast, »

HBO is finally moving forward with the much talked about rock 'n' roll show from Martin Scorsese.

Better late than never I suppose, HBO just put in a series order for the drama, which stars Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, and Juno Temple just to name a few. The show is set in 1970s New York and »

Sneak Peek the first trailer revealing new footage from director Thomas Vinterberg's upcoming film adaptation of author Thomas Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd", starring Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple:
"...'Gabriel Oak' is a young shepherd. With the savings of a frugal life, and a loan, he has leased and stocked a sheep farm. He falls in love with a newcomer six years his junior, 'Bathsheba Everdene', a proud beauty who arrives to live with her aunt, 'Mrs Hurst'. She comes to like him well enough, and even saves his life once, but when he makes her an unadorned offer of marriage, she refuses; she values her independence too much and him too little.
