Digital Spy rounds up the 5 must-see movies for September below...

Venice Film Festival’s U.S. Presence Subdued, Art Pics Dominate

31 August 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Venice — The absence of hefty U.S. fare is beginning to be felt as the Venice Festival enters its second stretch.

Many of this year’s really big guns — the Weinstein Co.’s Oscar hopeful “The Imitation Game,” Denzel Washington starrer “The Equalizer,” David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice” — are now firing off at Telluride, Toronto and even, in Anderson and Fincher’s case, the New York Film Festival.

Ethan Hawke starrer “Good Kill,” sold by Voltage Pictures and on paper Hollywood’s biggest indie commercial play at Venice, has still to world preem on the Lido. Given the high costs of opening a film on the Lido, especially for star-studded U.S. movies, however, Venice’s 71st edition raises the question of whether the balance of fest power is shifting to North America.

In the past two decades, Venice has held world premieres for several hundreds of U. »

New Photos: Jeremy Renner In ‘Kill The Messenger,’ Mia Hansen-Løve's ‘Eden’ & More

19 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Toronto International Film Festival made its final announcement this morning and so the fall film festival circuit geography is basically set, other than waiting for the day-of Telluride announcement, which has already been largely telegraphed by the status of Tiff and the New York Film Festival and whatever Fantastic Fest has left to offer, of course.  It's a remarkably vast playing field, with hundreds of films to choose from. With that in mind, there's lots of smaller films that aren't as name brand as say, “The Equalizer” starring Denzel Washington. So a few first looks and new photos have arrived from such films. But first, note a movie that surprisingly isn't at Tiff: "Kill The Messenger" starting Jeremy Renner. Directed by Michael Cuesta (a producer and director on “Homeland”), the dramatic thriller boasts quite a cast, including Rosemarie DeWitt, Ray Liotta, Tim Blake Nelson, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, »

Eminem And Sia Back New Spot For The Equalizer

18 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are multiple reasons to start getting excited for September’s The Equalizer. The thriller teams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua and finds the actor taking on another badass action hero role. Its supporting cast boasts Melissa LeoChloë Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas and Haley Bennett, and the film also features an original song by rapper Eminem with a chorus by Chandelier chanteuse Sia.

The latest TV spot not only really reminds us of what we already knew about The Equalizer‘s story, but it also highlights Eminem and Sia’s track, titled “Guts Over Fear.” Though we heard snippets of the song in a previous trailer, Eminem’s rapping is more center stage this time around – and Slim Shady sounds like he’s at the top of his game here.

Here’s the synopsis for The Equalizer:

Feisty TV Spot For Denzel Washington In ‘The Equalizer’

18 August 2014 3:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

No, The Equalizer isn’t about the long drawn-out process of fighting back after being a goal down for 89 minutes (Football joke!) but instead about former black ops commando Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) who fakes his own death for a quiet life in Boston.

However, he can’t resist the action and ends up coming out of his retirement to rescue young girl Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters – as you do on a Tuesday night. It’s directed by Antoine Fuqua who you’ll know for Training Day, Shooter and the rather surprisingly good Olympus Has Fallen with co-starring roles for Bill Pullman, and Melissa Leo.

It doesn’t exactly seem to be in the same vein as the highly successful TV Series from the 1980s, or feel much like Edward Woodward’s private eye, so let’s assume they’re using »

The Equalizer TV Spot: Denzel Washington Is a Gladys Knight & the Pips Fan

15 August 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a new The Equalizer TV spot for director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming thriller, and it showcases a new song from Eminem and Sia.  Denzel Washington leads the dramatic action-thriller as 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.  Sony has been quite bullish on the film, putting a sequel into development well in advance of its release, but aside from hints at a more introspective piece, the first trailer didn’t really strike me as anything particularly noteworthy beyond a riff on Washington’s role in Man on Fire.  However, this new TV spot highlights a few bits of solid humor from Washington’s character, making the pic a bit more attractive from my perspective.

15 August 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Bette Davis coined the phrase “Old age is no place for sissies,” she may as well have been describing the plot of “The Expendables 3.” Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the ensemble film features a cast of mature action vets who aren’t about to trade in their bullets for bifocals just yet. As the third entry in the popular franchise explodes into theaters on August 15, here’s a look at 12 films starring some of the toughest seniors in cinema.

Continuing his late-career reinvention as a post-middle aged action hero, Liam Neeson plays a federal air marshal who receives a series of threatening texts during a transatlantic flight. Trapping the 62-year old star in a confined location proved a wise decision as the modestly-budgeted thriller opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and earned over $200 million worldwide.
