Anchor Bay has sent us an exclusive poster and clip for the upcoming comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles. Directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), the film is three short stories connected by items from a Southern small-town pawn shop. The twisted tales involve "a man searching for his kidnapped wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads, and a sad-sack Elvis impersonator." It sounds like the fun insanity that permeated Kramer's underseen 2006 film Running Scared. This clip doesn't show any of that movie's electric cinematography and pacing, but that doesn't mean those aspects will be absent from the rest of the picture. As you can see from the trailer, the potential is certainly there. Hit the jump to check out the exclusive poster and clip. The film stars Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Vincent D'Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Norman Reedus, Chi McBride, Matt Dillon, and Paul Walker. Pawn Shop Chronicles opens in »

With a rather strange assembly of talent that includes Paul Walker, Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Vincent D'Onofrio, Chi McBride, Lukas Haas and "The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus, this first trailer for the dark comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles is all over the place. There are three interconnected stories centered around a missing wedding ring which leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator (which Fraser makes the most entertaining part of the trailer). This feels like a straight-to-dvd kind of title, but maybe there's some fun to be had here? Watch! Here's the first trailer for Wayne Kramer's Pawn Shop Chronicles from Entertainment Tonight: Pawn Shop Chronicles is directed by Wayne Kramer (Running Scared, The Cooler) and written by Adam Minarovich. The story revolves around a small town pawn shop that attracts big-time mayhem when a missing wedding ring leads to »

I’ve always felt South African writer/director Wayne Kramer is more than a little under appreciated in Hollywood. His films tend to have a Grimm fairytale-like quality to them despite their modern settings. The Cooler is a magical film set during the end of the Mob-run Vegas casinos, while the twisted thriller Running Scared is possibly Paul Walker’s finest hour in a seedy violent story that literally has everything and is as dark as films can get without crossing a certain line.
Speaking of Walker, he’s also onboard Kramer’s all-star ensemble Pawn Shop Chronicles, which from the look of this hilarious first trailer is another unique ‘adventure’. However, it’s literally a mind-blowing assault on the senses that I’ve no clue what’s going on – but it sure looks fun!

Twelve years ago, HBO put to screen a miniseries that was one part Television event, one part historical drama, which had the considerable backing of executive producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks and the hype of being something of a spiritual successor to their highly acclaimed war film Saving Private Ryan. Through ten one hour long episodes, essentially using TV as a medium to explore a vast and epic journey through the Second World War that would simply be impossible to map on the big screen, and with Stephen E Ambrose’s critically acclaimed non-fiction book as source material and a huge cast representing a collective of real world heroes, one of the most ambitious storytelling exercises the small screen has ever mounted was brought to life. The result was much fanfare, both critically and among the masses, a recurring trope that continues to this day, and the fledgling start »

Chicago – As the stars, presenters and award recipients gathered at the Chicago Film Critics Awards on February 9th, they took some time out to mix with the media at a pre-show press conference. Jane Lynch, Paul Sorvino, Joe Piscopo, Nadine Velazquez, Regina Taylor and the other award winners offered their perspectives.
HollywoodChicago.com’s Brian Tallerico, Patrick McDonald and Matt Fagerholm covered the presser, and contributed several questions asked to the awards show participants. Photographer Joe Arce captured his stellar portraits at the event. Below is a summary of the afternoon’s best.
Jane Lynch, Recipient of “Comedia Extrarodinaire”
Accepting this year’s award for Comedia Extraordinaire was the incomparable Jane Lynch, the Chicago-bred actress who achieved mega-stardom with her portrayal of Sue Sylvester, the bullying high school coach on “Glee.” It was a role impeccably designed for Lynch’s uproarious wit and deadpan timing, which she cultivated in a »

Emergency: We're less than two weeks from the Oscars, and I still have an entire Academy history to lament. Let's give props to the ten actors who've deserved an Academy Award most, yet have found themselves empty-handed. I've ranked them according to how much I've wept rethinking each slight.
10. Alec Baldwin
Yes, I'm trying to fix the gaping hole in my heart where 30 Rock once lived, but I also bring up the name of Jack Donaghy's maker for a pertinent reason -- he is a dynamite screen presence. If his chilling "Always be closing" monologue in Glengarry Glen Ross weren't scary and bad-ass enough, he's proved himself capable And cuddly in Working Girl, The Aviator, The Departed, and The Cooler, where he notched his first and only Oscar nomination. Surely the man who racked up six straight Emmy nominations for lovingly patronizing Liz Lemon should win one damn Oscar for bringing the heat onscreen. »
This weekend, the skull-shredding new Sylvester Stallone opus, "Bullet to the Head," explodes across theaters nationwide. A mismatched buddy movie that also happens to be incredibly violent, it pairs Sly (as a troubled hitman) with "Fast and the Furious" franchise breakout Sung Kang (as a troubled policeman) as they track down gangsters and crooked cops...or something. The plot is pretty minimal and what's there is sort of incomprehensible. But it's not about plot anyway, it's about breaking people's faces open. After the failure of "The Last Stand" earlier this month, which starred fellow old-timer action star Arnold Schwarzenegger (Planet Hollywood compatriots Sly and Arnold were recently paired in the disappointing "Expendables 2," playing wrinkled dudes who fire machine guns), will "Bullet to the Head" suffer a similar fate? Above-average genre filmmakers were responsible for both projects (South Korean director Kim Jee-woon did "The Last Stand" and American action auteur Walter Hill »
