Watch: Margot Robbie & Will Smith In Slick New Trailer For ‘Focus’

7 hours ago

Channeling the uber-cool essence of Steven Soderbergh’s stylistics, this second huge trailer for Focus, bought to us by the Crazy, Stupid, Love team of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, shows us a lot in quick succession but still leaves enough for us to ponder over.

The casting of Margot Robbie after her stunning performance in The Wolf Of Wall Street is inspired and we also get to see Smith continue to carve out those more suave roles, with additional deeper tones. Here, he stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who gets romantically involved with Margot Robbie’s character, novice con-artist Jess Barrett. As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, things get too close for comfort and he breaks it off. Three years later, they meet up again…

Marvel Get Us Square-Eyed With ‘Daredevil’ And ‘Agent Carter’ Picfest

13 hours ago

One of the world’s all-conquering comic brands has a raft of entertainment headed for the small screen and it’s about time they started unwrapping the goods. So with Christmas imminent, now is a good time to yank the bow on a payload of shots from two anticipated offerings – Daredevil starring Charlie Cox, and Agent Carter with Hayley Atwell. The Dd package sees Cox’s heroic alter ego Matt Murdock as he walks amongst an unsuspecting public…

 

As well as another shot of him in the black costume, disappointingly reminiscent of the “sock on his head” approach of 1989’s The Trial Of The Incredible Hulk

 

The good news sartorially is that the definitive red outfit will be donned. Co-starring Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin), the show is released on Netflix via ABC next year. »

Edgar Wright On Remembering Billie Whitelaw: 1932 – 2014

15 hours ago

Thn were sad to hear the news that prolific actress Billie Whitelaw had passed away aged 82 yesterday, and as well as offering our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends, we wanted to share this wonderful memory piece from Edgar Wright, the director who got to work with Billie on her very final film in Hot Fuzz in 2007.

Billie was a star of the stage and screen for 64 years having making her debut treading the boards in 1950, before also sharing her work on the big screen in 1953. Hitchcock directed her in Frenzy (1972), and you’ll also know her in the likes of The Omen (1976), Quills and many, many more titles in television, theatre and cinema. She was also a muse to Samuel Beckett, one of the most important and original writers of all-time, and had a very distinct influence on his work and he loved her work in return.

This first anthology of their season is brought to us by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, based on the book ‘The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson‘ by Jeffrey Toobin. It’ll be a 10-episode run that looks at the case from the perspective of the lawyers and will also explore all the behind-the-scenes happenings from this infamous case.

Schwimmer will play Kardashian, friend and attorney of O.J. Simpson, with Cuba Gooding Jr. taking on the other lead role, alongside American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark. Written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, this one is certainly going to ruffle feathers »

Bradley Cooper Shows The Human Impact Of War In Latest ‘American Sniper’ Trailer

16 hours ago

The haunting memories of war and its emotional impact on family are the focus of the latest trailer for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper.

Looking down the barrel of a sniper’s rifle, the latest clip opens as Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) is asked if he is surprised to learn that he has been credited with 160 kills. As the confronting discussion about his military career continues in voice over, the images oscillate between Kyle’s memories from Iraq and the simple beauty found in his family life. As the clip comes to its conclusion with Kyle returning stateside, Eastwood gives us a momentary glance at the emotional difficulties servicemen and women experience as they acclimatise and transition from one world to another and from their service duty to their family.

Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, the film is shot by cinematographer Tom Stern, here »

Left Behind DVD Review

17 hours ago

Director: Vic Armstrong

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Lea Thompson, Cassi Thomson, Chad Michael Murray, Jordin Sparks

Running time: 110 minutes

Certificate: PG

Left Behind…or try left unsatisfied. The film is absurd, from its cheesy soundtrack and acting to the horrifically obvious preaching. Simply put, it lacks any good qualities and leaves you feeling very disappointed but also un-surprised. The premise of the movie is a tough sell; the apocalyptic theme has been overplayed and seems to pander to expectation, rather than get creative and think outside the box, the film decides to try and sell what it thinks audiences want to see but unfortunately only results in boredom.

The film follows a group of people left behind when millions vanish. While the world around turns to chaos and destruction the group try to survive and make sense of the weird disappearances. The summary alone leaves you wondering what is there to »
