Few sports are as inherently cinematic as boxing. Whether you care for it or not, two men entering a ring armed only with their strength, their speed, and their raw determination is just plain dramatic. It’s a game of stunning comebacks and upsets. It’s a world of dizzying highs and painful lows. Boxing stories, whether they’re […]

This week saw a bunch of films getting second, third and final trailers, making us that much more hyped for their release!
San Diego Comic-Con kicked off this week, which is probably the biggest time of year for movie news, announcements, trailers, and all of our favourite things. It's still early in the week, but so far we've seen a new poster for Wonder Woman, a clip from Trolls, a new red band trailer for Sausage Party and a new trailer for Oliver Stone's biopic Snowden. That's just the tip of the iceberg, however, as we have tons of new movie footage from this week to tide us over, until, »

The film follows down-and-out modern-day prospector Kenny Wells (McConaughey) as he teams up with eager geologist Michael Acosta (Edgar Ramirez) to search for gold in the uncharted jungles of Indonesia. As Deadline puts it, “Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street.”
Along with McConaughey, Gold co-stars the above-mentioned Ramirez and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will portray Wells’ longtime girlfriend in the movie. Gold also features performances by Corey Stoll, Stacey Keach, Bruce Greenwood, Toby Kebbell, Timothy Simons and more.
Gold is currently the only film set to open on Christmas Day with Disney’s Star Wars stand-alone film Rogue One, Warner Bros.’ Will Smith-driven drama Collateral Beauty and Paramount’s Denzel Washington-led Fences all opening December 16. Opening a »

The life of Roberto Durán gets a stirring and thrilling big-screen adaptation with “Hands of Stone,” a new awards season-friendly film from writer-director Jonathan Jakubowicz. As the trailer below indicates, this is a movie that pulls no punches. Starring up-and-coming actor Édgar Ramírez as the famous Panamanian boxer, “Hands of Stone” traces Durán’s journey from the slums of his hometown, to his professional boxing debut in 1968 at age 16, to his world-renowned Wbc welterweight fight in 1980 with Sugar Ray Leonard (played by musician Usher Raymond IV). Two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro plays Ray Arcel, the trainer who led 18 boxers, including Durán, to world championships. To be released Aug. 26, “Hands of Stone” comes to theaters before another 2016 awards season movie about professional boxing: “Bleed for This,” starring Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart. Will the two films take each other on in the Oscar ring? Watch the trailer below. Want to compete for an Oscar? »

While the sport of boxing may not be as popular as mixed martial arts (Mma) these days, boxing movies are still quite popular. Sylvester Stallone teamed up with Michael B. Jordan and director Ryan Coogler to breathe new life into the Rocky franchise with last year's critical and box office hit Creed, and this year fans will be treated to a biopic of one of the sport's all-time greats, Roberto Duran. Today we have the first trailer for The Weinstein Company's Hands of Stone, which brings this boxer's epic journey to life.
Hands of Stone follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year‐old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the Wbc welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, »
I’m seeing a strange pattern here. Both Robert De Niro And Sylvester Stallone took up the boxing gloves again for Grudge Match, then Sly took on the trainer role in Creed. Now the one time Jake La Motta is following suit with Hands of Stone, playing the real life boxing trainer Ray Arcel as he trains Panamanian fighter Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), telling the story of Duran’s 1980 title bout with Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) Written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz (Secuestro Express), Hands of Stone promises to be everything a good boxing movie should be: tense, exciting, nail biting, and above all else, a compelling under dog story. On top of that, De Niro appears to be on top form, and after the dire Dirty Grandpa, we need to believe in him again. Released: 26th August (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) »

"This is inexplicable!" The Weinstein Company has unveiled the full-length, official trailer for Hands of Stone, one of the two major boxing movies this year (the other being Miles Teller's Bleed For This). The film tells the true story of professional boxer Roberto Durán, played by Edgar Ramirez, who hails from Panama. Durán fought predominantly during the 80s and is still considered one of the greatest boxers of all-time, earning the nickname "Hands of Stone" during his career. The cast includes Robert De Niro as trainer Ray Arcel, plus Usher Raymond IV as Sugar Ray Leonard, Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin, and John Turturro. The first teaser didn't show much, but this one gives us a good look at what to expect in this story about a legendary boxer. It seems as much about Durán as it does about Sugar Ray Leonard, too.

Last year, it was Southpaw and the rather excellent Creed that enthralled the moviegoing masses, but 2016 is cooking up a one-two punch of its own. Before Miles Teller learns to Bleed For This in November, it is Edgar Ramirez who will step into the ring for Hands of Stone, The Weinstein Company’s starry biopic that finds Robert De Niro in the role of accomplished trainer, Ray Arcel.
De Niro, who so brilliantly captured the imagination of a generation in Raging Bull, will find himself on the other side of the ropes in Jonathan Jakubowicz’s feature. It’s one he wrote and directed, too, chronicling the inspired journey of Panamanian boxer, Roberto Durån.
Celebrated as one of the finest fighters the sport has ever produced, Edgar Ramirez will don the boxing gloves in TWC’s feature film, as it charts Durån’s rise and rise to the tip-top of the boxing hierarchy, »

Usher co-stars as Duran’s rival Sugar Ray Leonard, and Ellen Barkin, Ruben Blades and Ana de Armas co-star. Duran became an hero in his native Panama as he rose through the ranks behind trainer Ray Arcel (De Niro), winning titles in four different weight classes. But it was… »

Coming from writer-director Jonathan Jakubowicz, Carlos star Edgar Ramirez is portraying the famous Panamanian professional boxer Roberto Duran, while Robert De Niro takes on the role of trainer Ray Arcel.

Also starring Usher Raymond, Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin, and John Turturro, check out the new trailer below.

But it’s perhaps indicative of the response that we’re about a month away from release and most people probably don’t know or realize the movie is coming. But The Weinstein Company […]

Isn’t it about time we had another buzzy thriller novel adapted for the big screen? Particularly one starring the sensational Emily Blunt? After the success of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl,” directed by David Fincher and starring Ben Affleck and an Oscar-nominated Rosamund Pike, audiences are surely thirsting for another bone-chilling story of adultery, deceit, and unreliable narrators. Enter “The Girl on the Train,” Paula Hawkins’ best-selling erotic mystery novel about an alcoholic commuter who becomes obsessed with a couple she sees every day through a train window—and then embroiled in their affairs after a mysterious disappearance. With a screenplay adaptation by Erin Cressida Wilson (“Secretary”) and direction from Tate Taylor (“The Help”), “The Girl on the Train” stars Blunt as Rachel, the alcohol-abusing divorcée struggling to come to grips with her husband Tom’s (Justin Theroux) new life with Anna (Rebecca Ferguson).
