Son of a Gun review: Ewan McGregor fires up heist thriller

30 January 2015 7:46 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Julius Avery; Screenwriter: Julius Avery; Starring: Ewan McGregor, Brenton Thwaites, Alicia Vikander; Running time: 108 mins; Certificate: 15

A reasonably engaging thriller, Son of a Gun is most notable for reminding us of that Ewan McGregor still possesses that irresistibly dangerous and edgy quality that propelled him to stardom in Shallow Grave and Trainspotting. It also serves as a calling card for the talents of Australian writer-director Julius Avery, who orchestrates several tense sequences that help to sustain our involvement in events.

Son of a Gun never quite capitalises on a bold beginning that's bathed in brutality and intrigue, as we enter the menacing confines of a prison through the eyes of 19-year-old Jr (Brenton Thwaites). Avery's tight framing and Jed Kurzel's suitably oppressive score amplify the intimidating environment for us alongside Jr, who soon comes under the protection of fellow inmate and Australia's most notorious criminal Brendan Lynch (McGregor »

Colin Farrell Says ‘Well-Hung’ Ewan McGregor 'Should Be Proud'

29 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Colin Farrell isn't ashamed to talk about his co-star Ewan McGregor's private parts.

In a new interview with Nylon Guys, the 38-year-old True Detective star -- who worked with Ewan in 2007's Cassandra's Dream -- is making it clear that the Scottish actor's not lacking down there.

"I don't think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well-hung would -- or should -- or could be," Farrell jokes to the magazine. "I think that's the greatest demonstration of his innate humility, that he doesn't wear it like a badge of honor."

Photos: Stars In Their Underwear

Ewan, 43, is looking as handsome as ever on the cover of Nylon Guys, in which he also opens up about hanging with A-listers Angelina Jolie and Jude Law in the late '90s in London, when the actors were all on the brink of hitting the big time.

Colin Farrell: Ewan McGregor Isn't ''Proud'' Enough of His ''Hung'' Penis!

28 January 2015 1:05 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's no secret that Ewan McGregor isn't afraid to bare all on the big screen. In fact, his penis has appeared in films such as Young Adam, Trainspotting, The Pillow Book and I Love You Philip Morris, to name a few.   And if you've seen one of the aforementioned full-frontal scenes, then you're well aware that the 43-year-old is well-endowed—a fact which Colin Farrell had no trouble pointing out in a recent interview with Nylon magazine.  "I don't think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well hung would—or should—or could be," he joked of his Cassandra's Dream co-star. "I think that's the greatest demonstration of his innate »

"Trainspotting 2" In The Works

20 January 2015 11:38 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, a sequel to "Trainspotting" is on track for development, with a new screenplay by Oscar-nominated writer John Hodge

Boyle intends to reunite the first film's original cast of Ewan McGregor, Ewan Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2', if John can produce a decent enough script. I don’t think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. 

"I think they’ll want to know that the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down. The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to »

'Babylon' react: Strike while police publicity's hot

8 January 2015 8:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In the last couple years SundanceTV has made a name for itself among the elite spelunkers who can find it on their cable package with its gallery of slow-moving, high-minded crime mysteries such as Top of the Lake and The Red Road. It's like if CBS went to the museum. The boutique network's latest import, Babylon, breaks the mold. It's a brash, wired urban police drama whose pilot was directed by executive producer Danny Boyle, the colorful, kinetic hand behind Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, and most recently Trance, a pixelated thriller that imagines total surveillance. That's the main preoccupation of Babylon, »
