2014 in film preview: thrillers

30 December 2013 3:36 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Thrills, spills and – hopefully – not too much bellyaching about our pick of 2014's upcoming thrillers

• 2014 preview: comedy

• 2014 preview: Oscar hopefuls

• 2014 preview: science fiction

• 2014 preview: romance

• 2014 preview: drama

Monuments Men

George Clooney gets the gang (Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray) back together for the greatest of capers – protecting works of art from the Nazis. Based loosely on Robert Edsel's book about the real life Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives programme, the trailer suggests the director/star has gone all Boys' Own on this one. Funny old gang of recruits mind – we can buy Clooney and Damon as rogues on a mission, but Murray and Goodman look more Dad's Army than Dirty Dozen. 1 January

Gone Girl

Gillian Flynn's best-seller gets a big-screen adaptation. Ben Affleck plays Nick Dunne, a struggling journalist implicated in the disappearance of his wife (Rosamund Pike), who went missing on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary. »

Denzel Washington For Green Lantern?

29 December 2013 1:34 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s more than a few rumours going around regarding the Man Of Steel sequel Batman Vs. Superman at the moment, so why not add another to them. Sources are speculating this weekend that none other than one Denzel Washington is being considered to play the role of John Stewart (aka Green Lantern) in the planned sequel.

Now, if this is true then the Batman Vs. Superman movie would be the first sequel that Washington has ever appeared in. Take a look at his back catalogue, and you will not find a sequel of any sorts. There are tons of remakes and/or adaptations, but not one sequel.

Nuke The Fridge says:

‘According to our source, the Training Day actor is being considered for the role of Green Lantern John Stewart. If this proves to be true, Green Lantern will join an ever growing list of members from DC’s »

Denzel Washington Considered For Green Lantern In Batman Vs. Superman?

27 December 2013 10:16 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Over the past several weeks, professional movie scoopers have been warning of misinformation being leaked out from Warner Bros. in the hopes of finding their mole(s). Perhaps this latest rumor from Nuke The Fridge is just that. Or, perhaps it's real. Who knows. According to our source, the “Training Day” actor is being considered for the role of Green Lantern John Stewart instead. If this proves to be true, Green Lantern will join an ever growing list of members from DC’s Justice League of America that also include Superman, Batman and Wonder Women. What's interesting, is that Denzel was involved in another Batman Vs. Superman rumor just several weeks ago. Think McFly Think reported that Denzel was up for the role of Lex Luthor. If Denzel does sign on, he'll be joined by Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Gal Gadot »

Watch: Arnold Schwarzenegger Gets Armed In New Trailer For 'Sabotage'

23 December 2013 8:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Few can match the intensity with which David Ayer captures the lives of cops doing their job on some very tough streets, delivering a handful of efforts either as a writer ("Training Day," "Dark Blue") or director ("End Of Watch," "Harsh Times") that seem to get more documentary-like with each movie. And that focus on realism is very much on display in the latest trailer for "Sabotage," though the tale is pure B-movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger (with a slick haircut) leads the movie as the head of an elite DEA crew who make a major drug bust, scoring a major load of drug cartel cash. But when $10 million goes missing from the stash, one of his own members of the team seems to be the culprit, and on his tale is a determined, hard-edged Olivia Williams (that accent!). Yes, there will be explosions, but also all kinds of facial hair and grimy clothes too. »

Arnold and Co. Are Loaded and Ready in New Sabotage Poster

19 December 2013 5:52 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

From the guy who gave us “Training Day” and “End of Watch”, for some reason I expected director David Ayer’s “Sabotage” to be a bit more complicated than just an old-fashioned shoot’em-up, which it looks like it is. I could be wrong, of course, but the trailer seems to back up my initial impression. Mind you, I’m a fan of old-fashioned shoot’em-ups, but not a lot of people are, if box office receipts for Arnold’s past few movies not including the word “Expendables” in the title are any indication. Anyways, take a look at a new poster for “Sabotage”. That’s such a generic title. They mind as well call it “Blow’em Up Good”, or some such. In “Sabotage”, Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, »

New Poster For Schwarzenegger's Sabotage

19 December 2013 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We had a trailer exactly a month ago showing that Sabotage might not be the kind of Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle we're used to. Now here's a new poster with the same message: this is a gritty ensemble piece. Listen up 'cause you can't say nothin', they'll shut you down with a push of your button. Or something.If you only glanced at it quickly, we reckon you'd be hard pressed to recognise Arnold here (is it just us, or is there more than a touch of Malkovich about that facial expression?). Notice also that the top of the image doesn't bear a giant "Schwarzenegger", but trumpets the stars as "the writer of Training Day and the director of End Of Watch". Skip Woods and David Ayer are being sold much harder here than the recent star of The Last Stand and Escape Plan...Neverthless, Arnold it is that's front and centre, »

The top 25 underrated films of 2003

18 December 2013 5:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 19 Dec 2013 - 06:30

Our journey through the lesser-known films of the 2000s continues. This week, it's 2003...

It was the year that Arnold Schwarzenegger went from Terminator actor to Governor of California, and when The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King dominated the global box office with a gross of more than $1bn. 2003 was also the year the Wachowskis' Matrix trilogy thundered to a close, the year Freddy Krueger clashed with Jason Voorhees in, er, Freddy Vs Jason, and the year Pixar scored another hit with Finding Nemo.

But as you've probably gathered by now, 2003 was also a year of quite brilliant, less lucrative films. The movies we've included in this week's list were chosen for a variety of reasons - some were ignored in cinemas, while others were harshly treated by critics. Some were modestly popular or given awards on release, »

Olympic Hero Jesse Owens Getting A Biopic

17 December 2013 9:14 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In 1936, Jesse Owens represented the United States in a competition against Nazi Germany. The stage for his legendary performance was set at the Olympics in Berlin, where he won four gold medals- destroying Adolf Hitler’s myth of about “Aryan athletic supremacy.” Hitler had tried to prevent blacks and Jews from participating in the games altogether, but eventually gave in after threats of a boycott. Prior to the games, Owens was the son of an Alabama sharecropper, but after winning the gold in 100 meter dash, the 200 meter dash, the 400 relay, and the long jump, he cemented his place as an American hero.

Now his story will be told on the big screen, with Disney backing the production. The screenplay is being written by Academy Award-winner David Seidler (The King’s Speech), based off the book “Triumph” by Espn’s Jeremy Schaap. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) is attached to direct the film. »

Antoine Fuqua To Direct Jesse Owens Biopic ‘Triumph’

17 December 2013 7:29 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s been talked about for years but it now appears a biopic of American track and field star Jesse Owens is off the blocks. Training Day director and the helmer of next years The Equalizer, Antoine Fuqua, has been tapped by Disney to direct the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling book ‘Triumph: The Untold Story of Jesse Owens and Hitler’s Olympics‘ by Jeremy Schaap. It tells of the legendary athlete who bravely walked away with four gold medals during the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, in the face of racial prejudice from Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

Triumph will have screenplay by Oscar-winning screenwriter David Seidler (The King’S Speech) and is expected to begin shooting early next year. Below is official plot synopsis of Schaap’s book.

At the 1936 Olympics, against a backdrop of swastikas and goose-stepping storm troopers, an African-American son of sharecroppers won a »

Jesse Owens Movie: Antoine Fuqua Set to Direct Biopic About Legendary Athlete

17 December 2013 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

African-American athlete Jesse Owens cleared many literal and metaphorical hurdles as a record-setting, barrier-breaking track and field star in the 1930s. Now, the late legend is set to clear another: he's getting a biopic.

Disney is developing the film, which is set to be directed by Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day," "Olympus Has Fallen"). Screenwriter David Seidler, who wrote the Oscar-winning script for "The King's Speech," will pen the untitled project.

The biopic will be based on the biography "Triumph," by Jeremy Schaap, which tells the story of Owens's rise from a poor sharecropper's son to an Olympic star. Owens won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, in the shadow of Adolph Hitler's rise to power.

Hitler had insisted that Jews and blacks not be allowed to participate in the games, but relented when threatened with a boycott. He skipped all non-German medal presentations and refused to shake any non-German victor's hand. »

Why has Grand Theft Auto shunned Hollywood?

12 December 2013 11:48 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Aaron Birch 13 Dec 2013 - 07:24

As one of the most successful and high profile franchises around, why hasn't Hollywood snapped up Rockstar's GTA?

Regardless of which side of the controversial fence you sit when it comes to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series, there's one undeniable fact - it's hugely successful. Even before the record-shattering sales of latest entry, Grand Theft Auto V, which is reportedly the fastest-selling entertainment title ever, generating over $1 billion in only three days, the series always managed to make its owners a mint. GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas and GTA IV have all sold impressive numbers, and with each iteration Rockstar pushes the boundaries, expanding and improving on the sandbox title.

Grand Theft Auto V is arguably the pinnacle of the series, and with such a hefty fan base and massive sales figures, not to mention a firm place in popular culture and movie »

Denzel Washington is Armed and Dangerous in First The Equalizer Image

10 December 2013 7:30 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Casting Denzel Washington as a retired spook who comes out of retirement when some bad guys get into his grill is such a no-brainer. So it’s a good thing the folks behind the upcoming big-screen adaptation of “The Equalizer” managed to rope ol Denzel into the role. Dude is going to slay this thing like something that’s never been slayed before. Mark my words. In “The Equalizer”, Washington re-teams with his “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua, fresh from blowing up the White House in “Olympus Has Fallen”. There probably won’t be that kind of mayhem in “The Equalizer”, though if the film is a hit, you can probably expect a sequel or two. This is a movie with definite franchise potential. So, here’s your first look at Denzel from the movie, looking, er, very un-retired it that machine pistol in his hand is any indication. “The Equalizer” co-stars Chloë Grace Moretz, »
