The Drop review

18 November 2014 6:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A crime thriller starring Tom Hardy and a scene-stealing puppy. What more could you want?

It's not without reason that The Drop has so quickly become known as “that movie with Tom Hardy and the puppy.” Based on screenwriter Dennis Lehane's own short story Animal Rescue, the blue collar crime drama aspect of the film is somewhat overshadowed by the metaphors and sweetness of the dog adoption sub-plot.

Overall though, it's still about Hardy as Bob Saginowski, a nice guy in a rough neighbourhood, who tends a friendly local bar owned by his elder cousin Marv (James Gandolfini). But after hours, Cousin Marv's Bar is a drop bar, one of a number of Brooklyn bars that serves as a place of safekeeping for the Chechen mob's ill-gotten funds.

When a pair of young chancers hold up Bob and Marv at closing time one night and only make off with the contents of the till, »

An Evening with Arnold Schwarzenegger: 8 highlights from London Q&A

16 November 2014 6:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger treated fans to a very special Q&A session in London last night (November 15).

The true Hollywood heavyweight answered questions from Jonathan Ross at the Lancaster London Hotel for 'An Evening With...', in which he discussed his careers in bodybuilding, movies and politics.

Arnie was on top form as he spoke passionately about Terminator, his unsupportive father, crashing tanks and Nicolas Cage nicking his roles. Digital Spy presents just eight of the evening's highlights.

1. He was quite clumsy in the military

"I was 18 years old and suddenly I was responsible for this 15-tonne tank. I was checking my gauges, and all of a sudden the tank was shaking, and I thought, 'What the hell is going on? This engine isn't running very well'. I totally forgot that the gear was in reverse and the tank was slowly going backwards, through the walls, and pipes were bursting and people were running! »

Ryan Coogler is directing, with his Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan taking the lead and Sylvester Stallone returning as Rocky Balboa. Champion boxers Andre Ward and Tony Bellew are also in negotiations to get in the ring.The story, from what we know so far, centres on Apollo Creed’s grandson Adonis (Jordan), a young man whose family has tried to keep him away from the ring but whose natural talents as a pugilist draw him there anyway.

New Rocky spin-off movie, Creed, shoots in January

11 November 2014 10:36 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sylvester Stallone takes on a supporting role in Rocky spin-off movie Creed, which is set to star Michael B Jordan...

Sylvester Stallone will be returning to the big screen to portray Rocky Balboa for the seventh time - but this time only in a supporting role. Instead, the focus will be on the grandson of Apollo Creed, in a movie by the name of, well, Creed.

For a while, this was earmarked as a TV series, but somewhere along the line it seems to have been upgraded to a movie. Michael B Jordan, who will be seen in next year's Fantastic Four reboot, has been earmarked to take the title role in Creed. It's set to be directed by Ryan Coogler, who helmed Jordan in the acclaimed Fruitvale Station.

Furthermore, we're hearing that boxers Andre Ward and Tony Bellow are now in negotiations to join the film.

It feels like it's been a while since we mentioned Ryan Coogler's name on this blog; Remember his feature directorial debut "Fruitvale Station," and all the great press that the film, the filmmaker, and its star received?

Ryan Coogler’s Rocky Spinoff Creed Moving Forward; Boxers Andre Ward and Tony Bellew in Negotiations to Join the Cast

11 November 2014 11:52 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s been loads of buzz about Creed ever since Ryan Coogler hit it big with his feature directorial debut Fruitvale Station last year, but until now, it’s really just amounted to a whole bunch of talk with no sign of the project actually moving forward.  However, that’s just changed courtesy of a report claiming that World Boxing Association champion Andre Ward and British champion boxer Tony Bellew are both in negations to join the cast of the film. Should their deals go through, they’ll join Michael B. Jordan who’s set to play the grandson of Apollo Creed.  Even though his family would rather not see him box, he’s got loads of potential and winds up being mentored by Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa.  Hit the jump for more. According to THR, should Bellew commit, he’ll play Creed’s primary opponent, “Pretty Ricky Porter, »

Interview: Jason Schwartzman Hears All in ‘Listen Up Philip’

29 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Jason Schwartzman likes to portray writers – he was one in his HBO series “Bored to Death” – and he portrays one in his latest film, “Listen Up Philip.” He also has played many characters in director Wes Anderson’s universe, and did a fantastic turn as composer Richard M. Sherman in last year’s “Saving Mr. Banks.”

The laconic and dryly witty Schwartzman was born in Los Angeles, the son of actress Talia Shire (Adrian in “Rocky” and director Francis Ford Coppola’s sister) and producer Jack Schwartzman. He was discovered at age 17 by director Anderson, when he starred in the cult epic, “Rushmore” (1998). He has continued in the Anderson acting company, also starring in “The Darjeeling Limited,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “Moonrise Kingdom” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” for the director. He’s also done memorable work in “I Heart Huckabees,” “Funny People” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

When Jean-Claude Van Damme played Predator

21 October 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In 1986, Jean-Claude Van Damme was the title alien in Predator before he was hurriedly recast. Ryan looks back at what happened...

In the mid-1980s, Belgian martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme arrived in America with dreams of stardom. Possessing a finely-honed physique, thanks to years of training in (among other things) karate, kickboxing and ballet, he was ambitious and brimming with self-belief.

The acting bug bit Van Damme while he was still in his teens: he played “a bad guy with all the knives” in the 1984 French gangster movie Rue Barbare and, determined to further his goal of becoming an actor, hopped on a plane to Los Angeles. His first few years in America were, however, tough. He slept in a rental car for two weeks, and made money money by teaching aerobics and martial arts, delivering pizzas, and working as a doorman at a restaurant belonging to Chuck Norris. »

24 September 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Guys, Sylvester Stallone is ready to touch your heart....again (don't forget about "Rocky"). He's just one of many actors in the crowdfunded "Reach Me," an inspirational drama about confronting your fears and becoming a better, more positive person. We just wish this trailer were more, uh, inspiring.... The particularly ragtag cast of Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Cary Elwes, Thomas Jane, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten and Tom Sizemore (wowsers) star in this thing about a book, written by a mysterious man, that suddenly goes viral and changes the lives of a bunch of a people who have problems. So, "The Secret: The Movie"? John Herzfeld ("15 Minutes," "2 Days In The Valley") wrote and directed this, and its his first feature in seven years. "Reach Me" arrives on VOD and in limited release on November 21st. Watch below.  »

Keanu Reeves Is Willing to Return for Speed 3

24 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Nerdist recently sat down with Keanu Reeves, and during the interview they brought up the possibility of Speed 3, and it seems like they got him to verbally commit to a third film. This is what Reeves had to say when asked about it:

"Oh my gosh, 'Speed 3: Redemption'! Sure. You know what I mean? Jack Traven just dusting it off."

It looks and sounds like it was all in jest, but you never know! After all, this is Hollywood and anything is possible. Sylvester Stallone was able to bring back Rambo and Rocky, why couldn't Reeves bring back Jack? 

1994s Speed pulled in $350 million worldwide. Reeves passed on Speed 2: Cruise Control, which turned out to be a disaster anyway, so it was a smart move for the actor not to do it. 

Yahoo! asked Reeves a year ago if if he would be interested in returning for »
