Antonio Banderas Thinks He's Made The Cut Of Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups,' Barely Remembers Shooting It

18 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember back in 2011, when Terrence Malick released the literally indescribably powerful film “The Tree of Life” and let it be known that he had no less than three more films on their way? For a man whose entire, near-40 year career had so far yielded only four movies, it was thrilling to learn that it might take just four years to get as many again...…and then everything got strange. Malick's next release, “To The Wonder,” was poorly reviewed (though not by us), his mysterious documentary “Voyage of Time” met legal roadblocks that have since been resolved, and his next drama, “Knight of Cups,” continued shooting with its extraordinary cast—Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O'Neal, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman—but appeared to get no nearer to completion.Increasingly, it has become clear that “Knight of Cups”, as is standard practice for Malick's work, »

22 April 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Los Angeles, April 22: Actress Olivia Munn, who is dating "RoboCop" actor Joel Kinnaman, says she doesn't want to share everything with her man.

Munn, who has graced the cover of Allure's May 2014 issue, says she likes to keep some things private, reports eonline.com.

"I would never let my man see me shave. I just don't think that you ever look like you're in a nice position," she said.

While she might want to keep shaving a private activity, "The Newsroom" star likes to hear the truth when it comes to maintaining a good body.

"I remember reading these articles when I was younger, and I just felt like,. »

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur Receives A July 2016 Release Date

10 April 2014 8:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s currently still working on his upcoming spy caper, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., director Guy Ritchie is already looking ahead at his next project. We heard not too long ago that he had attached himself to King Arthur, which is being set up at Warner Bros. as a “tentpole fantasy epic that’s set to span six feature films.”

At the time, we weren’t sure when Ritchie would get around to the extremely ambitious project, but now it appears that he’ll tackle it next as the studio has just given the first film in the franchise a July 22nd, 2016 release date (in 2D and 3D).

Both Warner Bros. and Ritchie have been trying to make a movie based on the classic tale for years now. If you recall, the project was originally set to have David Dobkin at the helm, with Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman being eyed to star. »

Warner Bros. to Release Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur in 3D on July 22, 2016

10 April 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It appears that filmmaker Guy Ritchie has firmed up King Arthur as his next project.  We learned a few months ago that Ritchie was looking to direct a new version of the King Arthur tale at Warner Bros., envisioned as a tentpole fantasy epic that would span six feature films.  There’s no telling if the franchise will indeed stretch to six films, but today Warner Bros. announced a July 22, 2016 release date (in 2D and 3D, naturally) for the first step, the Ritchie-helmed King Arthur.  Hit the jump for more on the project. Warner Bros. has been developing a King Arthur epic for some time, and the studio came extremely close a couple of years ago with David Dobkin (The Change-Up) at the helm and Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman in the leads.  Just as production was looking to gear up, however, the studio pulled the plug over budget concerns, »

‘Easy Money 2′ DVD Review

9 April 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Joel KinnamanMatias Varela, Dragomir Mrsic, Fares Fares, Madeleine Martin | Written by Maria Karlsson | Directed by Babak Najafi

Let me start by saying “Nordic Noir” has a lot to answer for… Desperate to ride the popularity of Norwegian dramas such The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge, UK distributors are seemingly snatching up any and all crime dramas that emanate from the region; and obviously not all can be the next The Killing… Just look at Easy Money 2 (aka Snabba Cash II in it’s original Swedish).

Foregoing rich storytelling and an engrossing plot, director Babak Najafi instead ups the violence and action for this sequel to the 2010 original. Once again starring Joel Kinnaman (Robocop) and based upon the novels by Jens Lapidus, Easy Money 2 follows Jw (Kinnaman), the promising business student who became an organized coke smuggler in Easy Money, is serving hard time in prison and struggling to »

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 94 – RoboCop Review

3 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Robocop didn’t do what we wanted, and we couldn’t quite get to an average rating, but there were some fun moments. A lot of what went wrong had to do with overshooting, over-thinking, and abandoning the see-through layers of the original. It tried to push the themes, and forgot to have fun.

It liked the idea that the way to make a movie better is to throw more money at it, and it didn’t temper that attitude with enough actual storytelling, or workable action.

Nevertheless, there were bits here and there that we liked. If nothing else, it made us envision the way things should have been, which potentially means that the slew of other remakes that are bound to come along have some chance at legitimacy. On the other hand, we won’t be making those either.

Joel Kinnaman was actually better than I’d predicted, »

Nine years after the box-office smash Sin City, the stories of the notorious city dwellers resume in the hugely anticipated sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.

Recommission: The Making of RoboCop

12 March 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with production visual effects supervisor Jamie Price and visual effects supervisor Nordin Rahhali about bringing a robotic enhanced law enforcement officer to the futuristic streets of Detroit once again...

“I saw the original in the theatre when it came out in 1987,” recalls Jamie Price (The A-Team) who was chosen by filmmaker José Padilha (Bus 174) to supervise the visual effects for RoboCop (2014).  “I watched it and the sequels again before we made this movie to re-familiarize myself because sometimes your recollections don’t always match the reality of it.  One of my first questions to José was, ‘What approach are you thinking for the movie?’  In a lot of ways the original is untouchable.  He had the same feeling and was clear that we weren’t remaking RoboCop.  We were making our version of it.”  The subject matter would be the same though the tone shifted away from »

Jai Courtney Talks Taking ‘Terminator: Genesis’ Job

10 March 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sharing in the skepticism that many actors feel- and $omehow overcome- regarding appearing in a reboot, Jai Courtney told IGN that he wasn’t sure about taking the role of Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis. Echoing statements made by other actors in recent updates of older properties- like Joel Kinnaman in RoboCop & Miles Teller in Fantastic Four- Courtney implies that it took the inclusion of other great talent involved to make him feel like Terminator: Genesis was a worthy project. He also points out how this won’t be the first time he’s done something like this.

“I’ve always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when [A Good Day to] Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, ‘Really? They’re gonna make another one?’ and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it’s healthy to have »

Daniel Espinosa Will Direct Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Blood on Snow'

5 March 2014 4:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) has signed on to direct Blood on Snow for Warner Bros. Leonardo DiCaprio became attached to star in and produce the adaptation back in October.

No screenwriter is attached to the project yet, but it is based on the novel of the same name written by Jo Nesb&#248 (Headhunters). The story follows a hitman who is hired to kill the wife of his boss, but he falls in love with her, causing them to both go on the run from the mob together. The book is the first in a planned trilogy, with Blood on Snow 2: More Blood arriving in 2015 and The Kidnapping closing out the series in 2016. Jo Nesb&#248 wrote the book under the pseudonym Tom Buchanan, who will become a victim in The Kidnapping.

Leonardo DiCaprio is producing with his Appian Way Productions partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Langley Park's Jennifer Davisson Killoran. »

Daniel Espinosa Will Direct Leonardo DiCaprio In Blood On Snow

5 March 2014 12:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daniel Espinosa is kind of a big deal these days, but I’m not exactly sure why. He first put himself on the map with the enjoyable Swedish flick Easy Money, starring Joel Kinnaman, but followed that up with the horrible Safe House, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Despite the fact that the film was mostly panned by critics, it did turn a healthy profit at the box office for Warner Bros., so naturally, the studio wants to hop back into bed with the red-hot director once more.

According to Deadline, Espinosa is in talks to direct Blood On Snow (though I’ve seen it referred to as Blood on the Snow as well) for Warner Bros., which has Leonardo DiCaprio eyeing the lead role. Based on crime novelist Jo Nesbo’s novel of the same name, we first heard about the project back in the fall, at which »

Daniel Espinosa To Direct Thriller ‘Blood On Snow’ For Leonardo DiCaprio

5 March 2014 12:28 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Leonardo DiCaprio gets involved with lots of things, so you may have forgotten that last fall the actor inked a deal to produce and possibly star in the big screen adaptation of bestselling author Jo Nesbø's forthcoming two-part book series "Blood On Snow" (written under the pseudonym Tom Johansson, which seems a bit pointless since everyone knows who wrote it, but whatever). Well, DiCaprio is still deciding whether or to star in the thing, but has lined up a pretty great director to take it on. Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House," "Easy Money") is in talks to take the reins on this story that follows an assassin who falls for his boss' wife after being assigned to kill her. Oops. No word yet on who will adapt the books, or when this might roll. Espinosa is currently busy in post on "Child 44" starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman and Joel Kinnaman, »

Daniel Espinosa In Talks To Helm Leonardo DiCaprio In Jo Nesbo’s ‘Blood On Snow’ For Warner Bros

5 March 2014 12:06 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa is in talks with Warner Bros to develop to direct Blood On Snow, which Leonardo DiCaprio is eyeing as a potential star vehicle. This is a two-book series that Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbo has written under the pseudonym Tom Johansson. The books, which Knopf will publish in two installments this fall and the following spring, will be produced by Kevin McCormick’s Langley Park (which is bringing Charlie And The Chocolate Factory to Broadway) and DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran’s Appian Way, which is coming off Best Picture nominee The Wolf Of Wall Street. They will now go out to scribes to draft the tale of a hit man who’s forced to go into hiding after he fails on a job and finds himself on the run with his intended target, who unfortunately happens to be his boss’s wife. Landing Espinosa is a coup. »

Interview: Director Jaume Collet-Serra Creates Non-Stop Action

27 February 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Commercial helmer Jaume Collet-Serra cut his feature filmmaking teeth on the horror programmers House of Wax and Orphan , but he is slowly working his way into the big leagues with the help of our favorite Irish brawler, Liam Neeson. Their first teaming on 2011's Unknown proved so fruitful they've re-teamed for this week's airline thriller/mystery Non-Stop , where Neeson plays an air marshal with a troubled past trying to save an intercontinental flight from terrorists. Later this year they'll drop another actioner called Run All Night alongside RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman, so we can infer that Neeson is officially De Niro to Serra's Scorsese. We sat down with Collet-Sera to discuss smoking, not cutting to an exterior shot, his long-gestating live-action version of »

Adam Driver, the indie film actor who shot to fame and critical acclaim on HBO’s Girls, may have landed the role of the main villain in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Adam Driver Cast In 'Star Wars'?

Driver reportedly won the coveted role against the Oscar-nominated Michael Fassbender and The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Although sources say the actor is all but confirmed for the role, Disney and Lucasfilm have remained silent amidst the speculation.

Driver’s Girls costar Lena Dunham congratulated him on his casting, then walked back the congratulations – not wanting to be accused of confirming the news – before making a crack about “Arm Rest Wars.”

We're Very proud of Adam Driver re: Star Wars. He's about to rip a hole in da force. Is that a thing? I guess I should see those movies?
