The Valachi Papers

15 July 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Charles Bronson plays a real-life Mafiosi in a period picture with a fine script, some good performances and a production so sloppy that the whole thing could be called The Anachronism Papers. Joseph Wiseman and Lino Ventura bring additional tough-guy star-power, and Bronson actually commits himself to the role — quite a change of pace for one of his later pictures.

‘Dunkirk’ to Get Widest 70mm Opening in 25 Years

5 July 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Warner Bros. releases Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic “Dunkirk,” audiences will have a chance to see it in the same format as classics like “Battle of the Bulge” and “Patton”: in 70mm film. In addition to digital and IMAX releases, “Dunkirk” will be given a wide release in traditional 35mm and 70mm film formats, making it the widest 70mm format release in 25 years. Film buffs often champion 70mm for its crisper image and wider presentation, allowing cinematographers to film expansive vistas that give movies a larger-than-life feel. From the late 1950s to the mid-70s, films like “Ben-Hur” and “Lawrence of. »

Win Battle of the Bulge on Blu-ray

26 May 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of The Battle of the Bulge on 5th June, we’ve been given 2 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

Five months after D-Day, most American soldiers think the German army is broken. The Germans think otherwise. In order to buy time to fill the skies with their invincible new jets, they launch one furious offensive.

For this epic recreation of one of World War II’s most crucial confrontations, director Ken Annakin (The Longest Day) captures the explosive action of massive forces squaring off and the individual ingenuity of weary GIs trying to survive a cruel winter. The cast is a starry juggernaut: Henry Fonda, Robert Shaw, Robert Ryan, Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas and more.

Experience the vast panorama of war in all its intensity — and all its heroism.

Please note: This competition is open to UK residents only

Fox Developing World War II Movie ‘Liberty Road’ With Chernin Entertainment (Exclusive)

9 May 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 is developing the World War II action movie “Liberty Road,” based on one of the 1944 battle at Bastogne in Belgium, Variety has learned exclusively.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger of Automatik Entertainment are attached to produce with Chernin Entertainment. Matt Charman, who received an Academy Award nomination for his “Bridge of Spies” screenplay, is also attached to produce and oversee the writers, Gavin James and Neil Widener.

The studio has acquired movie rights to George Koskimaki’s book “The Battered Bastards of Bastogne,” about the contributions of the 530 soldiers who were on the ground or in the air over Bastogne. The attack was part of a surprise Nazi offensive with more than 400,000 soldiers that launched in mid-December of 1944, in which the Allied troops were caught off guard by what turned out to be the final major Nazi offensive of the war. After heavy casualties on both sides, the Nazis withdrew in early January. »

“The Guts, Gags and Glory of a Lot of Wonderful Guys!”

— say, what kind of movie is this, anyway?

Action movies about combat are now mostly about soldiers that fight like killing machines, or stories of battle with a strong political axe to grind. WW2 changed perceptions completely, when a mostly civilian army did the fighting. With the cessation of hostilities combat pictures tapered off quickly, and Hollywood gave the subject a break for several years. »
