I’m going to let the video do the talking here, but this could be one of the greatest mash-up videos we’ve ever seen.
Titled ‘Hells Club,’ and gloriously edited by YouTuber Antonio Maria Da Silva, and his Amdsfilms, Hell’s Club features a ten-minute dance-off with Heather Graham dancing on down with Mark Renton from Trainspotting, Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars, Cameron Diaz from Charlie’s Angels, Blade, Johnny Castle from Dirty Dancing and John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever. Then there’s an awesome shoot-out showing The Terminator face-off with Robocop, Tom Cruise’s Vincent from Collateral, Scarface and Carlito from Carlito’s Way, and many more. This is just glorious.
Watch it now. Please, just watch it now. Just brilliant.

It seems like every single conceivable thing in a movie is part of a supercut or mashup these days. But most of those videos do little more than assemble a roll call of clips culled from YouTube. They're basically just audio-visual listicles. That's not the case with Hell's Club, which is one of the coolest movie mash-ups we have ever seen. Created by editor Antonio Maria Da Silva, Hell's Club imagines a place where countless movie icons all hang, danc together, fight together, drink together, and sometimes die together. It may sound like a weird proposition, but the way he manages to cut together the Terminator, Tom Cruise's hitman from Collateral, Sharon Stone's vixen from Basic Instinct, and many, many, many more pop culture icons into one scene is just...

Christian Bale is to play the legendary Enzo Ferrari in a new biopic based on the Italian car magnate. The film will be directed by Michael Mann (Public Enemies, Collateral), and will be adapted from Brock Yates’ 1991 book “Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races.”
There isn’t an official title for the film as yet, but two scripts are said to have been merged together, both adapted from the book; one by Troy Kennedy Martin (The Italian Job) and another by David Rayfield (Out of Africa).
Deadline, who broke the news say that the film takes place in 1957, a year where passion, failure, success and death and life all collided. They add that Mann and his team »

According to Deadline, Christian Bale has closed a deal to play Enzo Ferrari in a film set to be directed by Michael Mann. Currently going under the title Ferrari, the project is still in the very early stages of being set up and won’t go in front of the camera until next summer. However, Mann has been hard at work on it for a while, close to 15 years, in fact.
The film is set to take place in 1957, “a year where passion, failure, success and death and life all collided.” Deadline also reports that a big part of Ferrari will be the love story, and several high profile actresses are circling the female lead role. With Bale now on board, expect a co-star to join him soon.

First announced at Cannes two years ago, Luc Besson and his EuropaCorp accomplices' Transporter reboot is now almost upon us. Ed Skrein (Ill Manors and, more recently, Deadpool's Ajax) takes over the driving seat from Jason Statham this time in The Transporter Refuelled, directed by Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions). And here's the latest trailer, in which the unusually decent Audi driver hurts a number of fools and wrecks a number of vehicles, as is traditional and required. There's also a snazzy jump over a plane. We do love a good car jump.Should you be wondering, the re-casting of the main role has not also prompted the creation of a new character. This is not, we're to accept, a different transporter, but the very same Frank Martin (although we're possibly in prequel territory, which explains the hair). Martin is, you'll recall, the driver who never changes the deal and »
Tom Cruise has come a very long way since his screen debut in Franc Zeffirelli’s Endless Love (1981). Thirty six movies and a whole lot of stardom later and he’s still the biggest movie star on the planet. He is perhaps, also the biggest film star in movie history. You’d be hard pushed to offer up any other actor that’s sustained that level of popularity and box office pull for that long. There is a good reason for this too. Cruise polarises opinion of course and there are those that would see his downfall, but in large part that’s due to all things that have little if nothing to do with Tom Cruise the filmmaker.
Being Tom Cruise must take a special kind of energy. So special in fact that he has sustained that level of dash for nigh on thirty years without letting up. And if Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, »

Like most talented performers who’ve doubled as quintessential movie stars, Tom Cruise doesn’t always get the chance to demonstrate that he can actually act. There’s often just too much Tom Cruise in the way for people to notice, especially when he lets his erratic personal life take center stage. Putting together an “essential” list for such an actor is a bit of a tightrope act, walking the line between crowd pleasing star turns and performances of real substance. That said, here are ten Tom Cruise films that are not to be missed:
Risky Business (1983) – The early 80s were awash in teen sex comedies, most of which have justifiably faded from memory. Then there’s Risky Business, which not only rose above the pack, but made an indelible mark on pop culture history. It wasn’t Tom Cruise’s first movie, but it might as well have been: »

Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.
This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »

Since 2006, Tom Cruise has been reduced to, for lack of a better phrase, a global joke; a quick source for derision, slander, and mockery among the A-List Hollywood performers for the masses to prod at. There was his Jumping the Couch moment on Oprah, the uncomfortable Scientology interview, his termination with Paramount studios, and M:i:iii underperforming at the box office. In short, 2006 was not a good year for the iconic A-Lister.
Despite such set-backs Cruise still produces and stars in critically and financially successful movies, which proves his presence in Hollywood is unscathed. One needs only to look at 2011’s Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which would become Cruise’s highest grossing film to date, or the last few films that have received critical acclaim i.e. Edge of Tomorrow. Further, when one looks at Cruise’s career, one gets a sense that »

Few A-list movie stars these days have been as durable as Tom Cruise. He can take a licking and keep on ticking, while still showing us something new from time to time. With the release this weekend of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, I wanted to take a look at the career of Cruise and pick out his very best acting jobs. As such, below you can find what I feel to be his top ten performances to date. While he’s focused on action roles of late, I think the next stage of his career will return him to drama, which is exciting, as he’s overdue an Academy Award. As always, this is just my take on things, but I do hope that you enjoy! Here now are what I think are the ten best performances of Cruise’s so far… 10. Lions for Lambs – Not the best film he’s ever been involved in, »

★★★☆☆ The evocation of a western villain may be a happy coincidence, but with cyber-thriller Blackhat (2014) Michael Mann remains recognisably concerned with the masculine duels around the law's fraying edges. Again, Mann focuses on characters racing along legal blurred lines; in this case, though, they are the kind that carry packets of shimmering data as well as the more traditional cops and criminals. In a bravura opening sequence, Mann reconstitutes the pulsating bird's-eye views of La from Collateral (2010) into a vision of a world ensnared in digital communications, before crash-zooming into a macro-metropolis as a piece of glowing computer code traverses the internal workings of a nuclear plant.

Directed by Michael Mann.
After a Hong Kong nuclear plant and the Mercantile Trade Exchange in Chicago are hacked by unknown perpetrators, a federal agent proposes that the FBI work with China to find the cyber-criminals. The leader of the Chinese team, Chen Dawai, insists that convicted hacker Nick Hathaway be released from prison to help with the investigation. As Nick and his comrades chase their quarry, it becomes evident that the hackers have a sinister motive for their actions.
How can I put this.
I found my discovery that the Blu-ray itself was transparent far more interesting than anything its contents had to offer. That sums it really.

About an hour into my viewing of Blackhat I was struggling to remain conscious from boredom. About an hour later I was glued to my seat, my eyes and ears on full alert for whatever the film was going to throw at me next. So you’ll understand when I say I have considerably mixed feelings about crime maestro Michael Mann’s latest film. It’s his first since 2009′s Public Enemies, a film the subject of which (John Dillinger’s battle against the authorities in the 1920s) I was intrigued by but was severely ill-served by its amateurish and distracting digital handicam cinematography.

Say whatever you want about Jason Statham, but at the end of the day, you know exactly what you are going to get in Stath flick. Action, arse kicking, a couple of lovely dolly birds, his short right off and some kick-ass one liners. To celebrate the release of his new film Spy, which arrives in cinemas on Friday 5th June, we thought we’d count down our favourite Stath moments that have been captured on film over the years since his debut in 1998’s Lock Stock & Two Smokin’ Barrels. We love him. We all love him.
“Protection from what? Ze Germans?” Snatch (2000)
Stath plays… Turkish
Shirt On, or Shirt Off? – Shirt On
Possibly the film that secured Stath as a Hollywood leading man. His turn as Turkish is perhaps my favourite role that Statham has portrayed on screen. The film is full of one liners and fun interactions, particularly »

Read More: Watch: Ava DuVernay In Action Behind the Scenes of 'Selma' Golden Globe-nominated director Ava DuVernay ("Selma") spent years as a Hollywood publicist before making her way into the director's chair. It wasn't until working on the publicity team for the 2004 Tom Cruise-Jamie Foxx thriller "Collateral" that she took the first step. Off the clock, DuVernay wrote "Middle of Nowhere," which went on to win her a Directing Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Just before that, in 2011, DuVernay started the African American Film Festival Releasing Movement with the goals of empowering black, independent filmmakers with theatrical and multi-platform distribution through Array Releasing. Yesterday marked the beginning of the second annual membership drive for Affrm (African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement), which is broadening its reach to include filmmakers of color and women. DuVernay started Affrm with the goal of »

It was not a fun experience watching Michael Mann's Blackhat. Not only was it a terrible film, but it was a terrible film from one of my favorite filmmakers, a filmmaker that seems to be moving closer to the lackluster output of Ridley Scott and farther away from the man that made the likes of Collateral, The Insider and Heat. So, just as my interest in Scott's The Martian isn't too high, I can't say I'm all that intrigued when it comes to Mann's next project, which Variety reports is the long-gestating "Ferrari" biopic, about Italian automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari. We first reported on this project back in May 2011 when word was 20th Century Fox would distribute Go Like Hell, a film based on A.J. Baime's "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans" with a script by Jason Keller »

The two's alleged romance started in August 2013, when the 47-year-old Annie star reportedly wooed the former Dawson's Creek actress, 36, at the 4th annual Apollo in the Hamptons bash. Now, more than a year and a half later, Us Weekly reports that the two have been discreetly hooking up, and has the first photo of the attractive pair holding hands.
In the flirty picture, Jamie is looking at Katie while she appears to be reading something on her phone, the two also playing a little footsie.

Us Weekly says Jamie and Kate's relationship "started as a fling," but "has since become a long-term attraction."

Teresa Wright movies: Actress made Oscar history Teresa Wright, best remembered for her Oscar-winning performance in the World War II melodrama Mrs. Miniver and for her deceptively fragile, small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's mystery-drama Shadow of a Doubt, died at age 86 ten years ago – on March 6, 2005. Throughout her nearly six-decade show business career, Wright was featured in nearly 30 films, dozens of television series and made-for-tv movies, and a whole array of stage productions. On the big screen, she played opposite some of the most important stars of the '40s and '50s. It's a long list, including Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Gary Cooper, Myrna Loy, Ray Milland, Fredric March, Jean Simmons, Marlon Brando, Dana Andrews, Lew Ayres, Cornel Wilde, Robert Mitchum, Spencer Tracy, Joseph Cotten, and David Niven. Also of note, Teresa Wright made Oscar history in the early '40s, when she was nominated for each of her first three movie roles. »
