Film Review: ‘The Squad’

21 August 2015 4:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The police outnumber the bad guys seven-to-three in “The Squad,” a suspense-challenged genre programmer whose original French title (“Antigang,” derived from the division tasked with combatting organized crime) suggests a much more exciting dynamic, had the odds been stacked in the villains’ favor. Instead, this old-school American-style cop movie — a loose remake of “The Sweeney” featuring Gallic action-movie icon Jean Reno as the unit’s all-but-bulletproof leader — demonstrates how the aggressors might be steamrolled if, say, Luxembourg suddenly declared war on the United States. Though nothing special, there’s enough police brutality here to drive audience interest in French-speaking markets.

Considering that “The Sweeney” earned a modest $7 million in 2012 — and less than $27,000 in the U.S. — it’s not quite clear why anyone would want a French remake that adds little, unless you count all the cigarettes (even the pregnant lady smokes). Director Benjamin Rocher clearly saw the project as »

What did we learn from the Spectre teaser trailer?

28 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The first teaser trailer for James Bond 24 has been released, but what did it tell us about the upcoming movie, Spectre?

After letting the sky fall when it crum-balled to the tune of a billion dollars at the global box office, Spectre may be the most anticipated James Bond movie since the last one. Daniel Craig's fourth feature as 007 won't arrive in UK cinemas until October, but the response to the teaser trailer released over the weekend has been very positive.

Four is hardly a magic number for Bond actors. Sean Connery's fourth outing was the less-than-stellar Thunderball, Roger Moore's was the all-too-interstellar Moonraker and Pierce Brosnan closed out his four-movie tenure with the infamously poor Die Another Day.

That makes Craig the fourth actor to rack up four turns as Bond, and if you're superstitious about this sort of thing, maybe that's why this looks to be the combo breaker. »

Miss Bala’s Stephanie Sigman Is Spectre’s Third Bond Girl

10 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daniel Craig’s 007 is one lucky guy. In this November’s Spectre, the British spy will be trying out his terrible yet seductive one-liners on the likes of Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux, but today brings news that a third Bond girl has entered the picture: Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman.

The star, who previously toplined Mexico’s 2011 Oscars foreign language submission, Miss Bala, and Norwegian thriller Pioneer, was announced to be playing the role of Estrella via the James Bond 007 Facebook page.

Though Sigman, who’ll appear in Netflix’s upcoming Narcos and also had a role of FX’s departed The Bridge, is on the rise, she’s still less known than Bellucci or Seydoux, leading to speculation that her character is a dead woman walking. One Facebook commenter was quick to question whether she’ll be a “sacrificial lamb,” in the spirit of Shirley Easton’s Jill Masterston »

Adapted from the book “La Voce Della Pietra” by Silvio Raffo by screenwriter Andrew Shaw, the film is directed by Eric D. Howell and co-stars Marton Csokas (The Equalizer) and Caterina Murino (Casino Royale).

Voice From The Stone is the haunting story of Verena (Clarke), a solemn nurse drawn to aid a young boy named Jakob who has fallen silent since the untimely death of his mother nearly a year ago. Living with his father (Csokas) in a massive stone manor in Tuscany, Jakob not only refuses to speak, »

France’s Snd Acquires Jose Skaf’s Sci-fi Thriller- Drama ‘Vulcania’

29 January 2015 5:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Making its first-ever Spanish pick-up, France’s Snd-M6 Group has pounced on world sales rights to “Vulcania,” a sci-fi thriller-drama produced by two associate production companies of Peter Aalbaek Jensen and Lars von Trier’s Zentropa: Zentropa Spain and Zentropa Sweden. Ran Ent. co-produces out of France.

Snd has also taken French distribution rights to “Vulacania.” Nordisk has tied down rights to Scandinavia. Alfa Pictures will release “Vulcania” in Spain.

The feature debut of Jose Skaf, part of Spain’s seemingly bottomless auteur genre talent pool, “Vulcania” is set in a small place lost in space and time, where there is no other option but to obey the village leaders.

It stars two of Spain’s fastest-rising thesps, Miquel Fernandez (“The End”) as Jonas, who always played by the rules, and Aura Garrido as Marta, a young woman who makes him question the system and realize they have been fed a lie. »
