Speaking about the movie, Kwanten told us that it's not your typical Taken-style action film: "It really had some interesting existential throwbacks to the 1970s-style films, which I really like.
"I obviously grew up in the '70s, I remember my dad showing me High Plains Drifter when I was way too young! There was some nice allusions to that, »

Blunt Force Trauma follows the journey of John (Kwanten) and Colt (Pinto), gunfighters and sometimes lovers, on parallel but very different journeys through an underground dueling culture. From cockfighting rings and train yards, to basements and barns across South America, modern-day warriors put on bulletproof vests and duel one another in underground gunfights to gain riches and respect. It’s known only as the Game, and Zorringer (Rourke) is its elusive champion. John is looking for the ultimate duel with Zorringer while Colt is seeking revenge for the death of her brother. The two gunslingers travel from one shootout to another on a dangerous journey of love, violence, and clandestine battles.

In a festival noteworthy for a pair of high-profile transgender-themed movies, an action film with a gender-reassigned protagonist quietly is being packaged and shopped to buyers. Called Tomboy, the project, which The Solution is selling, has veteran action helmer Walter Hill (48 Hrs., Last Man Standing) attached to direct and Sigourney Weaver and Freida Pinto in various stages of negotiations to co-star. However, the project, being produced by Said Ben Said (Map to the Stars) of Sbs Productions, still lacks a headliner who will play a male hitman who becomes a woman against his will. A

A BBC2 documentary highlights an alternative view of the bustling country, focusing on its flora and fauna – and Channel 5 reinforces wedding stereotypes with bridezillas and uninterested grooms
You will not be surprised to hear India described as “a vibrant, bustling world, home to over a billion people”. It’s like a national motto imposed by outsiders. Shame it’s too long to fit on a licence plate.
India: Nature’s Wonderland (BBC2) may have opened with these words, but it was trying to highlight an alternative view of the country as one of the most biodiverse places on earth. A tag team of presenters – Liz Bonnin in the west, Freida Pinto in the northeast and Jon Gupta in the Himalayas – sought to demonstrate the immense scope of India’s landscape and its wildlife.

Blunt Force Trauma trailer
The Blunt Force Trauma trailer has just landed. The film stars Mickey Rourke, Ryan Kwanten and Freida Pinto, and has quite the interesting plot. Revolving around underground gun-fights, the movie echoes the likes of 13 Tzameti from a few years back. This film, directed by Ken Sanzel will be going straight to DVD and the VOD channels, but we thought it was worth a look.
From cockfighting rings and train yards, to basements and barns across South America, modern-day warriors put on bulletproof vests and battle one another in underground gunfights to gain riches and respect. It’s known only as “The Game” and Zorringer (Rourke) is its elusive champion.

"This one feels different." The official UK trailer has debuted for a new film called Blunt Force Trauma, starring Mickey Rourke, Ryan Kwanten and Freida Pinto. Despite that rather interesting cast, this is actually going straight-to-dvd and looks a bit like a low budget clunker with some very underlit scenes. The film is about gunfighters, or modern day gun-slingers who actually fight with pistols and bulletproof vests. You know what, that is a cool idea I'll give them that, but this has other problems. Anyway, the cast includes Jon Mack, Jason Gibson, Carolina Gómez and Maruia Shelton. Check it out below if you're curious. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Ken Sanzel's Blunt Force Trauma, direct from YouTube: From cockfighting rings and train yards, to basements and barns across South America, modern-day warriors put on bulletproof vests and battle one another in underground gunfights to gain riches and respect. »

Bringing together Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto and Ryan Kwanten as John, the film opens with the latter character, a dueller disillusioned after he no longer feels the adrenaline rush from his daring sport of choice. That leaves Kwanten’s protagonist with one choice: to seek out and find the elusive Zorringer (Mickey Rourke) and challenge who many consider to be the true expert in the field. Along this journey he’ll cross paths with Pinto’s Colt, and the pair have been described as “gunfighters and sometimes lovers, on parallel but very different journeys through an underground dueling culture.”
Though the plot doesn’t exactly leap off the page, the international trailer harbors enough gritty action and stylized set-pieces to hold our interest. »

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, »

Sneak Peek leaked set footage from writer/director Terrence Malick's upcoming romantic fantasy drama "Knight of Cups" starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley and Imogen Poots:
"...a screenwriter living in Los Angeles tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him..."
The title of the film refers to the 'tarot' card of the same name, where 'Knight' is the face card, similar to a 'Jack', 'Queen', or 'King' and 'Cups' is the suit, roughly equating with the traditional suit, 'Hearts.
