New Holiday Clip For Wild Card Embraces A Bloody Good Christmas

23 December 2014 4:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seeing as we’re in the thick of the holiday festivities, Lionsgate have delivered their season’s greetings via a special promo clip for their upcoming actioner, Wild Card. Don’t be fooled, though. While the video has a holiday-themed edge – soundtracked by White Christmas – it’s not pulling any punches. If anything, it’s dishing out more as Jason Statham wipes the floor with a bar-load of baddies. It’s a cheeky teaser for the film as a whole, which arrives early next year.

Storywise, Wild Card revolves around Jason Statham’s badass Vegas bodyguard, Nick Wild. His deadly prowess comes to the fore after one of his best friends is killed by a local thug, and he commits to tracking down the assailant, who turns out to be the son of a mafia kingpin. It hits all the pertinent points required for a kick-ass Stath-fest, and with a script from William Goldman, »

Few Original Song Nominees Come From Best Picture Nominees

22 December 2014 7:28 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

On Dec. 12, the Academy released a shortlist of 79 songs in contention for best original song at the 87th Academy Awards, but it’s not so easy to predict which songs will be announced as nominees on Jan. 15. You can’t turn to potential best picture nominees — or best animated features, for that matter — to predict which songs make the final cut. Though a number of best picture nominees have also been nominated for best original song, there’s not much correlation between the two.

The original song category was first introduced at the 7th Annual Academy Awards, and the winner was “The Continental” from 1934’s The Gay Divorcee, also nominated for best picture.

Nineteen of the 80 Oscar-winning songs have come from best picture nominees. They are as follows:

“The Continental” — The Gay Divorcee (1934) “Over the Rainbow” — The Wizard of Oz (1939) “Swinging on a Star” — Going My Way »

Nick Wild sets out to prove his loyalty in a domestic trailer for the new action thriller Wild Card, which comes on the heels of two posters and an international trailer.

New Trailer for Jason Statham's Action Thriller - Wild Card

12 December 2014 12:12 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got another action-packed trailer for Jason Statham's upcoming Las Vegas gambling thriller Wild Card. I'm a big fan of the films that Statham makes. Basically, every movie he stars in manages to entertain me. This latest film of his is a remake of a 1987 movie called Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds. I vaguely remember watching that movie, but this one looks like a lot of fun. It was directed by Simon West (The Mechanic and The Expendables 2), and here's the synopsis: 

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss.

Jason Statham is ready to bash skulls in the first official poster for the Lionsgate action thriller Wild Card. Opening in theaters this January, William Goldman adapts his own book for this hard-hitting drama. The story was originally told in the 1987 movie Heat, starring Burt Reynolds, but as you can see, its definitely gotten an upgrade.

Watch: International Trailer for 'Wild Card' Starring Jason Statham

2 December 2014 8:54 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jason Statham is back doing his Jason Statham thing again. Not that I am complaining. I love Statham. He is a dying breed of action star, and even if the movies he is in are terrible, he brings his brand of charisma, toughness, and cool to every role. His latest film is Wild Card (called Joker in other territories), which has a new international trailer for you to watch below. The film, set to be released in theaters and On Demand on January 30th, also stars Stanley Tucci with hair and Sofia Vergara, though she only shows up at the very end of the trailer so I wonder how much she is actually in the film. From the looks of it, Tucci is the villain and Vergara is someone sexy that Statham is drawn towards, not surprising. No, the film does not look very interesting. The January release date leaves a lot to be desired. »

First Wild Card Image, Poster, and International Trailer for Simon West’s New Action-Thriller Starring Jason Statham and from Screenwriter William Goldman

1 December 2014 11:42 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with a U.K. poster and French trailer, Lionsgate has released the first Wild Card image online, and it could easily be from just about any other Jason Statham action-thriller.  That's how much his movies blend together, although this one is particularly amusing in that his character's name is Nick Wild.  That puts it one step above his previous action films that could have been improved by naming the characters Jerry Mechanic, Howard Homefront, Billy Safe, Jack Blitz, and so forth.  In Wild Card, Nick Wild (hoo-boy) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with a gambling addiction and lethal skills, but when he beats a mob boss' son in an act of revenge, he must fight against the criminal underworld. That sounds painfully generic, but here's where it gets interesting: the film pairs Simon West—director of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic, and Stolen among other crappy movies (excluding Con Air)—and William Goldman, »

Watch: Saddle Up With 30 Minute Documentary On The Making Of 'Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid'

29 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

45 years after its release, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” remains just as vibrant and warm as it was in its original theatrical run. To celebrate its anniversary, here’s a superb half-hour documentary on the making of the film. These days, most behind-the-scenes documentaries have more in common with electronic press kits in which filmmakers and actors diplomatically praise one another via PR speak, hoping to sell their film instead of actually giving a realistic view of filmmaking. What a revelation then that “Butch Cassidy” director George Roy Hill gives an unvarnished look at the making of the classic western. Hill talks about how he approached scheduling the shoot —setting aside an entire week for half a week’s work because he tends to “fuck it up the first week”— and how his star Paul Newman had trouble playing Butch Cassidy the first few days. Newman himself reveals what »
