The Americans Recap: “Martial Eagle”

1 hour ago

All season long, The Americans has addressed issues of loyalty and consequence.  What has made this season so powerful is the emotional connection Philip and Elizabeth have had to their work, and how deeply it has affected them.  Starting the season off with the gruesome deaths of their fellow spies set the stage and tone for what would follow, and the season's tight focus on just a few stories (which are now connecting) have made for an incredible arc of episodes.  No hour has been so dedicated to consequence as "Martial Eagle" though, a dark and difficult walk with Philip as he goes through crisis.  Hit the jump for why "I know this is war.  It's just easier for you." The long-planned mission to the military base finally took place in "Martial Eagle," but it couldn't have been more of a letdown for the Jennings.  As things went sideways, Philip »

Arrow Recap: “Seeing Red”

2 hours ago

This week's Arrow took a bit of a detour from what we're used to, as the gang went out in search of one of their own rather than spending the hour tracking down a typical baddie.  It seems that Roy (Colton Haynes) is not handling his injection of mirakuru well (or subsequent hook-up to a blood transfusion machine), and that has him tripping out on a mindless rage-filled bender.  Not good for the citizens of Starling City, and much worse for Arrow & Co.  Despite Roy's behavior forming the bulk of this episode's conflict, it was a real blindside of an ending that took viewers by surprise.  Hit the jump for my recap. No "Island Time" this week, but we do get to spend a bit of time with mopey, dopey, pre-island Oliver.  We'll save that sequence until the recap's end since it ties in well with the episode's final shocker. »

New Sex Tape Trailer Starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel

3 hours ago

Following up on the debut red band Sex Tape trailer, Sony has released a comparatively more chaste green band trailer.  Still raunchy enough, given the premise centers on a married couple (Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel) who films a sex tape to spice up their love life.  Their video is accidentally uploaded to "the cloud," which sends the couple through a series of hijinks to prevent everyone they know---their son, her boss, the mailman, Rob Corddry---from seeing the video. Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe co-star in director Jake Kasdan's follow-up to Bad Teacher.  Sex Tape opens July 25.  Check out the Sex Tape trailer after the jump for a few new jokes. Official synopsis: When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark.  To kick things up a notch, »

Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Showrunner David Wilcox, and More Talk New TNT Spy Series Legends, Deviations from the Books, and More at WonderCon

3 hours ago

This August, TNT will premiere an intense new series from the producers of Homeland, centered around the FBI’s elite Deep Cover Operations (Dco) division.  Based on the book by spy novelist Robert Little, Legends stars Sean Bean as FBI agent Martin Odum, a specialist who can transform himself into anyone he needs to be.  His alternate identities, called “legends,” are so complex and thoroughly established that they almost take on lives of their own.  The show also stars Ali Larter as a fellow operative who has a history with Martin, Tina Majorino as technical expert Maggie Pool, and Morris Chestnut as another agent investigating Martin’s involvement in a murder case. The cast made an appearance at WonderCon last weekend, along with showrunner David Wilcox (Fringe), to talk about what audiences can expect from the show and, naturally, whether the infamously death-prone (on screen, at least) Bean will actually »

Trailer and Teaser Poster for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood Starring Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, and Patricia Arquette

5 hours ago

IFC Films has released the trailer and teaser poster for BoyhoodRichard Linklater's remarkable film follows the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane) over the course of 12 years, dropping in to view pivotal scenes in his life from the age of 6 to 18.  Viewers also see his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), their mother Olivia (Patricia Arquette), and father Mason Sr. (Ethan Hawke) age alongside him.  No matter how the film is eventually received by critics and audiences alike, the idea behind Boyhood is a commendable one that eschews traditional schedules, casting age-appropriate actors to fill in the gaps, and even cutting-edge aging make-up.  Linklater has chosen, instead, to let the natural path of life carve its way forward for each of his actors; that alone makes this a film worth watching. Hit the jump to check out the Boyhood trailer and poster, and click here to read Matt's review from Sundance. »

Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o in Talks to Join Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book

5 hours ago

Director Jon Favreau continues to firm up the cast for his live-action/CG hybrid take on The Jungle Book.  We learned last month that Idris Elba will provide the voice of Shere Khan in the Disney adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic, and now Heat Vision reports that Scarlett Johansson and Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o are in negotiations to join the pic as well.  Hit the jump for more on the nature of their roles. Johansson and Nyong’o should make for excellent additions to the Jungle Book cast, though it appears that the two will only appear in voice form.  Heat Vision reports that Johansson is in early talks to voice Kaa, the python that lures its prey through hypnotization (spot on casting there, Favreau), while Nyong’o is in final negotiations to play Rakcha, the mother wolf who adopts Mowgli.  It’s unclear if »

Want to See a High-Quality Blu-ray Release for The Iron Giant? Brad Bird Says You Should Ask Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

7 hours ago

The Iron Giant is one of my all-time favorite movies.  I have two Iron Giant Mondo posters.  I have a little Iron Giant toy on my desk.  What I don't have is the movie on Blu-ray because it's not available in that format.  The special edition DVD is nice, but writer-director Brad Bird made a visually impressive movie, and it's worth a high-end Blu-ray release that not only looks good, but also has plenty of great extras. Earlier today, Bird was asked on Twitter about when we might see the movie on Blu-ray.  Bird explained that he's spoken with Warner Bros. about it, but he wants more than a bare bones release.  I couldn't agree more.  I know it's kind of a cult film, but plenty of cult movies get excellent Blu-ray releases, and I think WB might be surprised at how many people want The Iron Giant to get the same treatment. »

New Images from Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer Starring Denzel Washington

7 hours ago

Fresh off the debut images that were released the other day, Sony Pictures has now released a few more The Equalizer images ahead of the film’s trailer debut.  Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua as he plays a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).  Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent Russian gangsters.  The pic scored incredibly high during its first test screening, and Sony is already prepping a sequel in the hopes that this film hits big with audiences.  We’ll get a look at Washington in action when the trailer is released in the coming days. Hit the jump to check out the new The Equalizer images.  The film also stars Marton Csokas, »

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See The Amazing Spider-man 2

8 hours ago

You can't keep a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man down.  While Sony has certainly gone overboard in their marketing for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, that's an issue to take up with the studio's marketing department.  When it comes to the actual movie, I have hope.  There seems to be a greater emphasis on the comedy, and it's got an undeniably strong cast.  Plus, it's Spider-Man.  He's going to keep on swinging, and I hope that his latest adventure will do the character justice. I'm please to announce we're giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The film stars Andrew GarfieldEmma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaanPaul GiamattiSally FieldChris Cooper, B.J. Novak, and Felicity Jones.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd. To enter for a chance to win a pass for you and a guest, »

Director Luc Besson Talks Lucy, a Possible Sequel, His Approach to Female Characters, and More; Says Taken 3 Has Nothing to Do with Liam Neeson’s Family

8 hours ago

From writer/director Luc Besson, the action-thriller Lucy is about a woman (Scarlett Johansson) who is accidentally caught in a dark deal, and then turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.  For more on the film, watch the trailer and read our WonderCon panel recap. While at WonderCon to promote the film’s August 8th release, filmmaker Luc Besson spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about who Lucy is, how he’d been thinking about and working on this project for 10 years, that he doesn’t like to cut a lot of scenes, but he likes to allow himself a bit of room during editing, and how, if the film is huge, he would think about a possible sequel.  He also talked about the sci-fi trilogy he will probably do next, how no one will actually get taken in Taken 3, »

Andy Serkis, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and Director Matt Reeves Talk Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the Original Film, the Sequel, and More at WonderCon

9 hours ago

Out in theaters on July 11th, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues the story of a growing nation of genetically evolved apes, led by Caesar (brought to life by Andy Serkis) and now threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus that was unleashed a decade earlier. While at WonderCon to hype the upcoming release of the film, co-stars Andy Serkis, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman were joined by director Matt Reeves to talk about the first time they saw the original Planet of the Apes movie with Charlton Heston, why performance capture needs to be understood as just another form of acting, the challenges of taking this film on, the human colony, shooting in New Orleans, and how the third film will be expanded even further.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

New Trailer for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Featuring Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Jessica Alba

9 hours ago

Dimension Films has released a new trailer for co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  This trailer doesn’t really get into the plot all that much, as it’s more of a flashy, aesthetic teaser than anything.  Frankly, the visuals for Sin City 2 look quite cheap compared to the first film, even though technology has advanced almost a decade since Rodriguez made Sin City.  The cast is promisingly eclectic, though, but right now that’s the only thing holding my interest here. Hit the jump to watch the new Sin City 2 trailer and sound off with your thoughts in the comments. »

Jared Harris, Sam Claflin and Olivia Cooke Talk The Quiet Ones, Hammer Films, Script Changes, Deleted Scenes, and More

9 hours ago

Opening this weekend is director John Pogue’s supernatural horror film The Quiet Ones.  The period pic stars Jared Harris as an unorthodox professor who sets up a series of dangerous experiments in order to explore the dark energy manifested by the damaged psyche of a young girl.  Naturally, things don’t go well.  The film also stars Sam Claflin, and Olivia Cooke.  Erin Richards and Rory Fleck-Byrne.  For more on The Quiet Ones, check out some creepy motion posters, the trailer, and all our previous coverage. At yesterday's Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Harris, Claflin and Cooke.  They talked about whether the script changed during production, if they added anything to their characters, if they shot an alternate ending, deleted scenes, making a film for Hammer Films and the history of the company, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Ender’S Game Blu-ray Review

9 hours ago

If you’re looking for a film that deserves a second chance, Ender’s Game will certainly fit the bill. It came and went without much fanfare last fall, another adaptation of a beloved teen novel that failed to catch fire the way the producers clearly hoped it would. It was further burdened by homophobic comments made by the novel’s author Orson Scott Card, which the filmmakers were quick to disavow to no avail. Ender’s Game came and went with nary a hiccup, which sadly overshadowed the fact that – in and of itself – it’s actually rather terrific. Hit the jump for my full Ender's Game Blu-ray review. It thrives in part because it has a lot to say about being different, and the ways in which the world tests and bullies outsiders who dare to be themselves. Director Gavin Hood has shown flashes of such insight in his previous work. »

First Images from Jurassic World Reveal Bryce Dallas Howard and Dinosaur Destruction

10 hours ago

Earlier today, director Colin Trevorrow dropped a few fascinating nuggets of information about the upcoming sequel Jurassic World by discussing his desire to helm further installments in the franchise, the nature of Omar Sy’s character, and revealing that they are using animatronic dinosaurs for the production.  Now, just a few hours later, the first official Jurassic World images have landed online as filming is underway in Hawaii.  They’re not incredibly revealing, but we do get a first look at Bryce Dallas Howard’s character as well as a couple of environment shots.  Trevorrow previously described Howard’s role as “very corporate, very controlled,” and that is certainly reflected in this debut image. Hit the jump to check out the first Jurassic World images.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D'Onofrio, B.D. Wong, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, and Irrfan KhanJurassic World opens »
