A Surprisingly Awesome Fight Scene from the Movie “The Bodyguard”

16 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ve never considered The Bodyguard to be that great of a movie.   The reality of it is that it’s not a particularly good movie but to some people it’s kind of turned into a cult classic.  Perhaps because it starred Whitney Houston or perhaps because it’s got that early 90s feel that Showgirls had?  Ok that was harsh but truth be told even though it’s not great, it’s definitely entertaining.  When I look back on the film there’s one scene in this movie that most directors and film buffs would actually consider quite impressive by cinematic standards. In this fight

Whitney: Can I Be Me review – sex and drugs and a family at war

15 June 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Nick Broomfield’s Whitney Houston documentary is an engrossing and compassionate portrait of a supremely talented singer racked by self doubt

Nick Broomfield’s documentary portrait of Whitney Houston shows once again that her climactic “I” in I Will Always Love You is one of the most amazing moments in pop music: a sustained blazing siren of euphoric self-affirmation. That song became the keynote of her smash-hit movie The Bodyguard in 1992 with Kevin Costner, and sealed her global megastar triumph. (Much stronger, for me, than Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On from Titanic.)

Whitney’s hurricane-force “I” all but blitzes the song’s meaning, which I only fully appreciated on listening to Dolly Parton’s considerably more muted and melancholy self-penned original from 1973. The singer is of course renouncing her claim on the loved one. But the way Houston belts it out, she is owning everything and anything. »

Movie Review – Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017)

15 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whitney: Can I Be Me, 2017.

Directed by Nick Broomfield and Rudy Dolezal.

Featuring Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown and Robyn Crawford, David Roberts and Cissy Houston.

Synopsis:

A documentary tracing the life of Whitney Houston, one of the most successful singers of the late 20th century.  Catapulted into stardom in her early 20s, her career skyrocketed, with a debut album that sold in its millions.  But her personal life became increasingly turbulent and an addiction to drugs precipitated her death in mid-forties.

It’s just over five years since Whitney Houston died.  We’re regularly reminded of the date on-screen in Nick Broomfield’s latest documentary, Whitney: Can I Be Me.  11th February 2012, location the Beverly Hilton, and the film starts with the telephone call to the emergency services.  No name mentioned, just a woman in her forties found in the bath and not breathing.

From there, Broomfield goes back to »

Action packed new trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson

30 May 2017 3:54 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Summit Entertainment and Millenium Films has today unveiled a brand new trailer for their anticipated action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which you can view in the player below!

The new film stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, Life) and Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island, Avengers: Infinity War) and thus far the marketing has been making a few loving pokes at the classic 1992 film The Bodyguard including utilising the poster and Whitney Houston’s famous song “I Will Always Love You” to add to the “fun” aspect of the film.

The second trailer, however, goes all out on the action front as well as a whole host of R-rated humour for which Reynolds and Jackson are dab hands at. In the film, Reynolds plays the world’s leading bodyguard and is offered a new job: guarding one of the world’s leading hitmen (Jackson) – but, as you would have expected, »

Hitman's Bodyguard Trailer #2: Reynolds and Jackson Get Triggered

26 May 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the first teaser surfaced in April, Lionsgate has now unveiled a second trailer for the upcoming action-comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard, which brings Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson together for one wild ride. Lionsgate has also released the final poster, along with two character posters featuring both the Hitman, Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) and his reluctant Bodyguard, Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds). The studio has also unveiled new photos, which give us a new look at Salma Hayek's Sonia Kincaid, Darius' wife.

The world's top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world's most notorious hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson). The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. During their raucous and hilarious adventure from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, »

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson Attempt Not to Kill Each Other in Their New Movie

26 May 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Imagine being hired to protect Samuel L. Jackson. Now imagine he's a hitman, and has various other hitmen coming to kill him while you're trying to protect him. That's the task Ryan Reynolds takes on in the upcoming comedy, The Hitman's Bodyguard. The film's marketing campaign is really hyping up the parallels to 1992's The Bodyguard, so don't be surprised if Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" plays at some point. Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek are costarring in the film, which is out Aug. 18. Check out the trailer, and take a look at the rest of this Summer's biggest titles! »

Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L. Jackson Get Triggered In New Trailer For ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’

26 May 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The early marketing for “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” really leaned heavily on parodying “The Bodyguard,” with first poster showing star Ryan Reynolds carrying his co-star Samuel L. Jackson similar to how Kevin Costner held Whitney Houston. The first trailer used the famous Whitney Houston song, “I Will Always Love You,” to really drive home the message that this movie was just like that one, but with laughs.

The film, by documentarians Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal (the latter documented the superstar throughout her legendary career), premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday night.

Whitney Houston‘s long-rumored secret romance with her best friend and assistant Robyn Crawford has been detailed in the new documentary Whitney: Can I Be Me, which had its world premiere on Wednesday at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Among never-before-seen footage taken throughout the legendary singer’s tumultuous life both on stage and behind the scenes, the film offers a sensitive, trenchant examination of the star’s relationship with Crawford, long a topic of innuendo.

While it appears Crawford herself was not directly involved with the new documentary, the work features new and archival in-depth interviews from family members, friends »

18 actors whose characters were cut out of movies in post-production

24 April 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 28, 2017

The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...

Yep, I know. I’ve read lists like this too, and I know that Eric Stoltz was cut out of Back To The Future. If it’s all well and good, I’ll leave that example out.

See related  Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection Alien 5: will it ever happen?

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.

Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. For the side effect »

See Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds' Meta 'Hitman's Bodyguard' Trailer

13 April 2017 7:50 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"This guy single-handedly ruined the word 'Motherfucker,'" Ryan Reynolds' protection agent character says about Samuel L. Jackson's hitman character in a new trailer for Lionsgate's The Hitman's Bodyguard. Judging from the clip, the meta statement alluding to Jackson's infamous Mf-wielding status hints at a film that likely pokes fun at itself while delivering action-packed scenes.

The plot involves a "Triple A-rated executive protection agent" (Reynolds) being assigned the task of guarding a notorious hitman (Jackson). The pair clearly dislike each other. While sitting in a car, the hitman threatens, »

Warning: This news bulletin contains a trailer with a suggested parental guidance notice, should be the words uttered when witnessing the brand new red band trailer for Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson’s hilarious profanity-laden The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

Reynolds and Jackson team us as a formidable pair in the trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which is set to Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You (a tongue in cheek nod to her film The Bodyguard), see’s Reynolds as the world’s top protection agent, looking slick in his grey suit, good looks and vanity-fuelled personality getting more than he bargains for when he is called upon to guard the life of notorious hitman played by an angry potty-mouthed Jackson.

The First Trailer For The Hitman’s Bodyguard Delivers Action And Laughs

13 April 2017 3:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Imagine if Pulp Fiction’s Jules Winnfield got older, and grumpier, and had to get to a specific location while under fire from potential assassins. Then imagine that any pre-Deadpool Ryan Reynolds character had to get him there. That’s basically what we have in The Hitman’s Bodyguard and, to great surprise, it looks to be exactly the film you’ll need to give your summer a boost.

Directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3), The Hitman’s Bodyguard is the second script from Tom O’Connor (Fire With Fire), and boasts a wider cast that includes Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung (Daredevil), Gary Oldman, and Joaquim de Almeida (Our Brand Is Crisis). The premise is simple – the world’s greatest hitman (Samuel L. Jackson) needs to get to the International Court Of Justice alive, and the world’s greatest bodyguard (Ryan Reynolds) has to get him there. Complications »

Oscars 2017: 'Moonlight,' Warren Beatty and the Perfect Hollywood Ending

Forget it, Jake – it's La La Land.

No wait, sorry, there's been a mistake. it's Moonlight! Our bad.

What a glorious only-in-Hollywood fiasco, and what a sublimely insane ending to an Oscar night for the ages. It was just like the end of Bonnie and Clyde: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway bask in each others' glow, there's suddenly an awkward silence, they share a moment of doomed erotic eye contact ... and then oh, the carnage.

Exclusive: Mick Jackson on returning to cinema with Denial

26 January 2017 6:56 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Mick Jackson, the director behind films such as The Bodyguard and L.A. Story, is returning to the silver screen for the first time in 14 years, with courtroom drama Denial.

Telling the true story of Deborah Lipstadt – played here by Rachel Weisz, who is sued by British historian, and notorious Holocaust denier David Irving (Timothy Spall), Denial is a riveting, pertinent tale, and we asked Jackson what it was about this story that lured him back.

He discusses the relevance of the title, and how these days it’s become dangerously accepted for opinion to masquerade as fact, he also tells us about his first visit to Auschwitz, as well as the importance in not giving people like Irving a platform.

Synopsis

When university professor Deborah E. Lipstadt includes World War II historian David Irving in a book about Holocaust deniers, Irving accuses her of libel and sparks »
