Watch: First Trailer For Spy Thriller 'Our Kind Of Traitor' Starring Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris & Stellan Skarsgard

41 minutes ago

Audiences just can’t get enough of spies, it seems: last year saw a wealth of different super-agents on screen, from long-running heroes James Bond and Ethan Hunt, to fresher faces from “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Spy,” to Oscar nominee “Bridge Of Spies,” and mostly with great success financially. This year is a little quieter, but not by much, with “The Brothers Grimsby” and “Jason Bourne” among those on the way, but we’re also seeing a resurgence of one of the kings of the genre, author John Le Carre. The success of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” a few years ago made the veteran author hot again, and surprisingly strong box office for “A Most Wanted Man” helped to, so we’re soon to get a couple more. First up is Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie in miniseries adaptation “The Night Manager,” and soon to follow is big-screen outing “Our Kind Of Traitor, »

Watch: New Trailer For First-Person Sci-Fi Actioner 'Hardcore Henry' Starring Sharlto Copley

8 hours ago

While shooting an entire movie from a first person Pov might seem like a gimmick, director  Ilya Naishuller is carving out his niche. He's already directed two music videos for Biting Elbows which earned attention for their visceral perspective, and now he's going for full length thrills with "Hardcore Henry."  Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, Andrey Dementyev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova star in the movie about a cybernetic super-soldier who has to save his wife, leading to plenty of action of carnage. Here's the official synopsis:  Strap in. Hardcore Henry is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time:  You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you »

Watch: Futures Get Destroyed In The Venomous New Trailer For ‘House Of Cards’ Season 4

9 hours ago

"Without me, you are nothing.” Is showrunner and creator Beau Willimon going to out with a bang on his last season of “House Of Cards”? The American political drama television on Netflix just got renewed for season five, but in the announcement was the additional news that Willimon was departing to try on new creative endeavors. And so (*spoilers ahead*), as Willimon and his staff roll into season four, it appears the animosities of last season are becoming all the more bilious.  There was mixed reactions to “House Of Cards” season three, but frankly, they were unwarranted. Three jumped back on form from season two that nearly jumped the shark with suspension-of-disbelief strains of credulity. At the end of season three, the Underwood foundation of the show Potus Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and first lady Claire (Robin Wright) had buckled under the weight of the election and years of marital betrayals and hostilities. »

Idris Elba To Lead Long Developing Fox Romance 'The Mountain Between Us'

12 hours ago

For a while now, there has been a mountain of sorts between Fox’s desire to turns Charles Martin's “The Mountain Between Us” into a movie, and getting the job done. Gerardo Naranjo (“Miss Bala") was initially slated to direct Michael Fassbender and Margot Robbie (would've loved to see that), before that version fell apart. And then Charlie Hunnam and Rosamund Pike were attached before they too exited. Now another actor is aboard who can hopefully get this thing done. Read More: Watch: 32-Minute Speech By Idris Elba About Diversity In Media And Films Idris Elba has signed up to star in the movie that tells the story of Ashley, a writer heading east for her wedding who meets Ben, a doctor.

Review: Tobias Lindholm's Controlled, Thought-Provoking, And Oscar Nominated 'A War' Starring Pilou Asbæk

12 hours ago

Company Commander Claus Pedersen is a good man. We know this from practically the first scene in Danish director Tobias Lindholm's "A War," and not just because he is played with characteristic everyman integrity by the preternaturally sympathetic Pilou Asbæk. It's in the way he hovers worriedly over the radio back at base camp as he hears news of a routine patrol of the surrounding Afghan countryside going horribly awry. It's in the way he picks the exact right tone of voice to talk to the shellshocked men who return, some splattered with blood not their own. It's in the way his goodness is mirrored in that of his wife Maria (Tuva Novotny) at home in Denmark, raising three unruly children without him, in wry good humor. We know Claus is a good man for every decision he makes and every motivation he has throughout the course of this »

Watch: New U.S. Trailer For Lance Armstrong Drama 'The Program' Starring Ben Foster, Jesse Plemons, Dustin Hoffman, More

13 hours ago

There a few sports stories like that surrounding Lance Armstrong, the formerly beloved and inspiration cycling champion, who soon become the poster boy for disgrace and duplicity. It's rich dramatic material, and it's no surprise the story has made it to film, but it's a bit of a bummer there hasn't been that much excitement about Stephen Frears' "The Program." Read More: Watch: Three New Clips From 'The Program' With Ben Foster The always reliable Ben Foster leads the adaptation of David Walsh's book "Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong," that tracks the downfall of Armstrong as the controversy about his alleged doping began to swirl. And there's a solid supporting cast in place including Chris O'Dowd, Jesse Plemons, Dustin Hoffman, and Guillaume Canet taking roles. And while the picture didn't quite work for our critic at Tiff, I'm nonetheless curious to check it out. »

Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen Goes Undercover In New Red Band Trailer For 'The Brothers Grimsby'

13 hours ago

Sometimes, marketing a movie means getting a bit shameless, and that's what Sony has done with their latest red band spot for "The Brothers Grimsby." In case you didn't know who Sacha Baron Cohen was, this new spot reminds you he's the guy who was Ali G and Borat, before diving into his upcoming comedy. While direct and effective, it maybe doesn't give the audience enough credit... But hey, whatever works. Read More: Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen Is An Empty Headed Hooligan In Trailer For 'The Brothers Grimsby' As you likely know by now, the comedy co-stars Mark StrongRebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe and Isla Fisher, and follows estranged brothers, who are reunited, but of course they couldn't be more different. One is a soccer loving doofus, and the other is super serious secret spy. What could go wrong? Here's the synopsis:  Nobby has »

Watch: 2-Minute Supercut Of Coen Brothers Pov Shots

13 hours ago

It’s only been two years since "Inside Llewyn Davis", the last film by Joel and Ethan Coen, hit screens, but for some diehard fans that’s far too long. Last week though finally brought some respite with the release of the highly anticipated “Hail, Caesar!,” an energetic and often grand peeling back of the curtain on the golden age of Hollywood (our review). The film, like all of the Coens’ lighter fare is packed with oddball comedy and A-list actors having lots of fun, often at their own expense (see: George Clooney, a movie star who can be a movie star and make fun of movie stars). Basically, it's a Coen brothers film, complete with their distinct narrative flair, gorgeous cinematography from long time collaborator Roger Deakins, and music from Carter Burwell. It’s a film that’s well worth braving the February cold to see. Read More: Ranked: »

Kate Winslet Joins Star-Studded Cast Of Will Smith's 'Collateral Beauty,' To Help Battle 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

14 hours ago

It's funny to remember that at one time, "Collateral Beauty" was in dire straights. Originally, it was set to star Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara, with "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon behind the camera. But first Jackman left, only to be replaced by Will Smith. Then Mara and Gomez-Rejon both exited, and the project seemed to be in peril. But man, has it ever bounced back. Read More: Watch 15-Minute Talk With Will Smith And 'Concussion' Filmmakers Kate Winslet has joined the ensemble which now includes Keira KnightleyHelen MirrenEdward Norton, Michael Peña and Naomie Harris.

Samuel L. Jackson Eyes Stephen King's 'Revival,' Josh Boone To Direct Before Making 'The Stand'

14 hours ago

For those of you anticipating the big screen version of "The Stand," you're going to have to wait. Last week, Deadline reported that Warner Bros. option on the film rights has expired, and the project is now back in the hands of CBS Films, who can either go it alone, or find a studio to collaborate with. But director Josh Boone isn't going to wait around, and he's got another Stephen King project brewing. He'll be writing and directing an adaptation of "Revival," which is currently looking for a studio home. That process might be helped along by Samuel L. Jackson, who EW says is circling the lead role of Charles Jacobs, a preacher who loses faith when his wife and child are killed in a tragic accident. Here's the book synopsis:  In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. »

Watch: 8-Minute Video Essay Investigates The Morality Of Denis Villeneuve's 'Sicario'

15 hours ago

One of the more purely visceral filmgoing experiences of last year was the hard-hitting “Sicario,” which was the rarest of things: a corpse-littered cartel land thriller that didn’t inevitably resort to dopey action movie clichés to get its points across. The film was also another shattering work from the ever-exciting Denis Villeneuve, whose artistic preoccupations clearly gravitate toward the murky intersection of what it means to be moral and what it means to survive. The director’s last few films, including “Incendies,” “Prisoners,” and “Enemy,” all have their own unique and respective vibe. And yet all are also fundamentally concerned with the duplicitous nature of surfaces and the emotional cost of violence. In “Sicario,” FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) learns very quickly that she can’t trust anyone or anything she’s being told: the truth is but an illusion in this bleak world, shifting randomly and without »

The 25 Best TV Dramas Since 'The Sopranos'

15 hours ago

This coming Sunday sees what might be one of the biggest event's of the early 2016 TV season — the arrival of HBO’s big new drama “Vinyl.” The show, which focuses on the record industry in the early 1970s and stars Bobby Cannavale, Juno Temple, Ray Romano and more, marks the cable network’s second collaboration with director Martin Scorsese (who produces the show with Mick Jagger, and who directs the two-hour pilot), after “Boardwalk Empire.” The show was co-created with Terence Winter, who was one of the key writers on “The Sopranos,” which reinvented television drama. Others paved the way for it — “NYPD Blue,” “Homicide: Life On The Street,” and HBO’s first drama series “Oz.” But “The Sopranos” was the one that changed everything, dominating pop culture, drawing huge ratings and massive critical acclaim, and helping to prove that the small screen could be home for truly groundbreaking work »

Watch: The BFFs Are Back In New Trailer For 'Broad City' Season 3

15 hours ago

There are few voices on the television comedy landscape at the moment that are as bright as Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. The duo behind "Broad City" have quickly ascended to the top ranks of small screen laughs, with their Comedy Central becoming a big fave, and I can only imagine it's just a matter of time until the feature film world comes knocking down their down, as it did for their network pals, "Key & Peele." But first, they've got another season of "Broad City" to deliver, and the latest trailer is here. Read More: 'Broad City' Girls Ilana Glazer & Abbi Jacobson Are Making A New Comedy Film With Paul Feig One of the things that many treasure about "Broad City" is how it mixes observations on gender, sex, and more, in between the laughter. Chatting with Ellen Page for Interview, the duo explain their approach at balancing all those elements. »

Interview: Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki Talks ‘The Revenant’, Working With Terrence Malick, Muting The Ego & Much More

16 hours ago

The ascent of cinematographer Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubzeki into a household name (or nickname) can be traced to his stunning work over a 30-year career, but also the enticing narratives behind the scenes on each project. First there come the whispers of what’s happening on a particular set — All natural light! Shot in one unbroken take! Set entirely in space with one character! — and then quickly from there, anticipation mounts around exactly how the hell Lubezki will be able to pull the feat off. The incredible thing is how few missteps have resulted from Lubezki constantly pushing technology and storytelling forward. A lifetime collaboration of over six films with director Alfonso Cuarón has cemented an intimate style coupled with technical prowess, starting with “Sólo Con Tu Pareja” up through 2013’s Oscar-winning “Gravity.” That ambition has only increased in his partnerships with Terrence Malick and Alejandro González Iñárritu, both of which. »

Watch: New U.S. Trailer For 'A Bigger Splash' With Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts & Tilda Swinton

16 hours ago

Sometimes, all you want from a movie is to watch a bunch of beautiful people doing their thing in a beautiful location, and Luca Guadagnino's "A Bigger Splash" does just that. Our review out of Venice last year called it "an enjoyable slice of sunshine noir," and now you can feel a bit of that heat, with this new trailer.  Read More: The 30 Most Anticipated Films From 2016 We've Already Seen Inspired by Jacques Deray's 1969 flim "La Piscine," Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Tilda Swinton star in the story about a rock legend whose idyll is interrupted when her old flame comes back on the scene.

Watch: First Trailer For 'Mr. Right' Starring Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Tim Roth & The RZA

16 hours ago

Max Landis had his pen all over a couple of 2015's biggest stinkers and commercial flops — "American Ultra" and "Victor Frankenstein." And there was another movie that bore his name, "Mr. Right," which premiered last fall without much fanfare at the Toronto International Film Festival. But now you can see if it's a missing gem or another miss for the writer as the first trailer has arrived. Starring Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Tim Roth, and The RZA, the film tracks the romance that blooms between a young woman and a hitman, and the complications that follow when he's called into action. Love ain't easy, right? Here's the synopsis:  Read More: Tiff Review: 'Mr. Right' Starring Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Tm Roth & The RZA Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Kendrick) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup.

Jennifer Jason Leigh To Join Alex Garland's 'Annihilation' With Natalie Portman

17 hours ago

Are we headed into a Jennifer Jason Leigh-aissance? Granted, the actress has never really went away, but she seems to be having a real moment. Arguably the best part of Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight," while serving as the beautiful heart of Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson's "Anomalisa," Leigh has been blessed of late with some terrific, complex roles to play. And it looks like she's lining up another one. Read More: Review: Quentin Tarantino's Gleefully Nasty 'The Hateful Eight' With Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Says Filming Has Commenced On Star Wars: Episode VIII,' And Production Started On 'Episode IX'

17 hours ago

While there's no doubt that Disney's $4 billion investment in Lucasfilm will be paid back and then some, Disney CEO Bob Iger is more involved than most studio heads would be in the day-to-day business of "Star Wars." In a recent Vanity Fair profile of Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, she revealed that during the filming of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Iger watched footage from very early on.  “My phone would ring in London, and he’d be giving me his notes on the dailies he just looked at,” she said. “My involvement in ['The Force Awakens'] is unusual, but it’s unusual for a very obvious reason,” Iger noted. Of course, he's doing his job of making sure that Disney is spending their money wisely, and that the final product is shaped to be both creatively and financially successful. But he's also a fan, too. And it's a safe bet he'll be just »

Review: ‘Zoolander 2’ Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penélope Cruz & Will Ferrell

18 hours ago

The bend/break rules of comedic malleability are well established, but do not forget the dictum that schtick barely expands. If cinema has taught us anything, it’s that there's nearly a zero-tolerance policy for the comedy sequel, one of the most difficult nuts to crack. And while comedy follow-ups are something Paramount Pictures have been curiously invested in of late ("Hot Tub Time Machine 2," “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”), “Zoolander 2,” Ben Stiller’s largely tiresome, predictable and belated sequel to his 2001 fashion-world comedy, is not a wise bet. Mostly uninspired, overcooked, over-plotted, and cobbled together by a string of warmed-over jokes — credited to four writers, no less — “Zoolander 2” at least has the good sense to begin by killing Justin Bieber. But the goodwill earned in assassinating the world’s smuggest pop star is short-lived.  It's revealed that Bieber has been gunned down by a secret cabal that is mysteriously terminating the. »

Watch: First Trailer For 'The Purge: Election Year' Starring Frank Grillo

18 hours ago

Trying to predict what will turn into a horror franchise is a fool's errand, and no one could've guessed that three years ago, Universal's $3-million cheapie "The Purge" would've turned into a nearly $90-million worldwide hit. A year later, "The Purge: Anarchy" did even better, with $111 million globally. And now, the studio is hoping audiences are up for a third with "The Purge: Election Year." Read More: Review: 'The Purge' Starring Ethan Hawke & Lena Headey That's quite the title for the movie, which finds Frank Grillo back in action in a story that finds a United States Senator campaigning to end The Purge once and for all.
