It's a risky business, filmmaking. Simon looks back at some bold, expensive 1990s movies where the gambles didn't quite pay off...
This summer's blockbuster season has got off to a startling start, with Iron Man 3 being widely praised for its willingness to rip up the rule book a little, as it continues the story of Tony Stark.
In fact, there's a subset of modern blockbusters - Nolan films, some X-Men features for instance - that are garnering increasing praise for taking bold choices with the material. That they're wagering a lot of movie studio money on projects and stories that once upon a time would have struggled to get through the system.
However, we'd argue that the 1990s was rich with such gambles too, it's just most of them never really made quite the levels of cash we're seeing now. So, here's a »
Here's another teaser trailer for the Japanese samurai remake of Clint Eastwood's classic western Unforgiven. The film stars Ken Watanabe (Inception) as a swordsman who takes a job as a bounty killer. It's the same role that Eastwood played in the original film, but he was a retired outlaw gunman.
The story takes place in the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido in the 1880s, during a time when Japanese settlers were displacing the native Ainu people. Watanabe plays a samurai with a fearsome reputation as a swordsman who is living in retirement with his Ainu wife when poverty and a large bounty tempt him into action again.
I'm not sure when the movie will be released in the U.S., but it's set to be released in Japan on September 13th, 2013. The movie was directed by Lee Sang-il (Hula Girls) and also stars Kunimura Jun, Yagira Yuya,Sato Koichi, »

They both may feature some swordplay and are set for a release in Japanese theaters in the fall, but the Ken Watanabe-led remake of Unforgiven and Sono Sion‘s latest twisted work Why Don’t You Play In Hell? couldn’t be more different, as evidence in two new teaser trailers. First up, after working with Clint Eastwood on Letters from [...] »

You ready for another taste of what happens when a key work from one of the most American of all American directors is transposed into another country? Well, here you go with a second teaser for the Lee Sang-il directed Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven with Ken Watanabe in the lead. The action is now set in late 1800's Hokkaido with Watanabe playing a long retired samurai drawn back into action by the combination of poverty and a large bounty. Production values on this look fabulous - as you'd expect, Watanabe is a huge star in Japan and very selective about his projects - and you can feast your eyes below....

Los Angeles, April 29: At 82, actor-filmmaker Clint Eastwood, who rose to fame with TV series "Rawhide" and later won the best director Oscar for his movie "Unforgiven", dreams of making films for two more decades.
At the Tribeca Film Festival, he said that he admires the 104-year-old Portugese filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira.
Calling the thought as "the ultimate optimism", he said: "It would be great to be 105 and still making films."

New York — Clint Eastwood may be 82 years old, but he dreams of making films for two more decades.
In a wide-ranging conversation Saturday about the art of film directing, Eastwood expressed admiration for the 104-year-old Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira.
"It would be great to be 105 and still making films," Eastwood said. Chuckling, he called such a hope "the ultimate optimism."
The "Million Dollar Baby" and "Unforgiven" director joined fellow filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for a staged talk at the Tribeca Film Festival following a screening of Richard Schickel's documentary "Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story." Eastwood regaled the Tribeca Performing Arts Center crowd with the accrued, pragmatic wisdom from his late career as an acclaimed filmmaker.

Clint Eastwood will have lost a few Brownie points for his bizarre and frankly ill-advised conversation with an empty chair at the Republican National Congress last autumn, but he is still much-adored Hollywood royalty – old and craggy, but still directing and acting to a phenomenally high standard and responsible as actor and/or director for some of the greatest and most iconic films ever to have come out of Hollywood.
Most often associated with Westerns and understandably so (the Dollars trilogy, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Pale Rider, Unforgiven), Eastwood also has a sterling track record within the crime genre (Dirty Harry, Mystic River, In the Line of Fire, Play Misty for Me) and with straight dramas too (Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, A Perfect World, Changeling). With Oscar statuettes and nominations coming out of his ears, he is clearly much loved by the Academy, but critics and »

We first heard about the remake last summer, when it was announced that Ken Watanabe, Japan’s internationally best-known actor, would be taking the lead role played by Eastwood just over two decades ago.
With the film’s September release date on the horizon, the studio have debuted a new poster, following on from the promising first teaser trailer which surfaced late last year.
Like the original, the remake is set in 1880, relocating the setting to Hokkaido, Japan, at time when Japanese settlers were displacing the local Ainu people.
Watanabe stars a samurai with a fearsome reputation living in retirement with his Ainu wife, brought out of retirement for one last job.
Watanabe stars alongside Kōichi Satō (When the Last Sword is Drawn) and »

While there are certain aspects of film-making they can’t always control, ultimately it is the skill of the director that determines whether a movie is good or bad. To make this list of the greatest modern directors, a director must still be actively making movies and only movies from the last 15 years are considered in the ranking of the directors.
The factors in the rankings obviously include the general quality of the directors films but also takes into account the number of films made in the given time period as well, the impact of the director on the filmmaking scene as a whole, and the potential they have for making more great movies in the future. The sheer number of quality directors ensures that a good number were excluded from the list as many excellent filmmakers such as Ang Lee, Kathryn Bigelow, Edgar Wright, Danny Boyle, Nicolas Winding Refn, »

The west is going to get a little wilder when They Die By Dawn hits the big screen! The action flick starring Nate Parker, Michael K. Williams, Erykah Badu and Rosario Dawson tells the stories of real life African American cowboys from the past, teaming up, kickin’ ass and taking names!
Our very own Meghan O’Keefe was lucky enough to attend a screening last night, and asked the stars which African American rough riders from history were their biggest inspirations. Michael K. Williams had to go with Ben Hodges, whereas Jeymes Samuel went with Rufus Buck and Cherokee Bill. “When Cherokee Bill was getting executed they said to him, ‘Any last words?’,” he shared. “And he said, ‘I came here to die, not to talk.’” Ok, it’s pretty hard to top that for badass-ness. But we’re sure as hell going to try with our very own list »

"Get busy living, or get busy dying."
With his velvety smooth voice, wise eyes and confident, reassuring demeanor, Morgan Freeman has become one of the most popular and respected actors working today, imbuing any movie he appears in with class and gravitas. Freeman struggled to find steady work as an actor for decades before his breakout performance in the 1987 movie Street Smart earned him an Academy Award nomination, but he has appeared in one or more movies every year since then, save for 1999. This year will be one of his most prolific yet, with major roles in four movies — Oblivion, Now You See Me, Olympus Has Fallen and Last Vegas. In his career, he's played a pimp, a principal, a prisoner, a president, a procurer of Bat-gadgets and even God, but what is his best movie role? Help us rank the movies of Morgan Freeman.

Steve Buscemi is a Golden Globe-winning thespian responsible for such indelible characters as Nucky Thompson on "Boardwalk Empire," Carl Showalter in "Fargo" and Mr. Pink in "Reservoir Dogs." He's a serious man who makes serious films. And so it's only natural that this week he's about to co-star in his latest gritty drama: "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone"?
Okay, so Buscemi isn't exactly a complete stranger to comedy, either. After all, he was one of the main characters in the legendary 1998 cult classic "The Big Lebowski." But it's still jarring to see someone like Buscemi get dolled up as a Vegas magician and go toe to toe with the likes of Jim Carrey and Steve Carell in an all-out farce.
And that got us thinking: What other "serious" actors have taken a stab at comedy? Sure, funny folks like Carrey and Bill Murray have long transitioned to serious roles, but it's »

When these artists started working, Wolverine was one of Marvel’s biggest stars. He got his own solo book in 1988 and was prominently featured in Fox’s long-running X-Men cartoon. Wolverine also appeared in his first solo video games Wolverine and Wolverine: Adamantium Rage in 1991 and 1994. In comics, this was a time of experimentation and changes for the character. He lost his adamantium skeleton to Magneto in X-Men 25 (1993), left the X-Men and became feral. His appearance changed to look more like Hugh Jackman from the X-Men films, his origin and true name James Howlett were revealed in Origin (2001-2), and he joined the Avengers and X-Force. He also began to randomly guest star in various titles leading to what is called “Wolverine Publicity” by TV Tropes.

Million Dollar Baby director one of 80 Republicans to sign legal brief calling for legalisation of same-sex unions
Clint Eastwood lent his support to the fight for gay marriage, adding his name to a legal brief that calls on the Us supreme court to legalise same-sex unions. The Oscar-winning film-maker and actor made an eccentric appearance at last year's Republican national convention, berating an empty chair to the various amusement and bemusement of the gathered dignitaries. He now joins a breakaway group of moderate Republicans that threatens to expose a split within the party.
Eastwood is a resident of the state of California, where a constitutional amendment, Proposition 8, currently limits marriage to a man and a woman. Next month the supreme court is due to hear arguments about the legality of the ban. The arguments could eventually lead to the proposition being overturned and gay marriage being legalised.
