If you’re a fan of Jim Morrison, you might want to keep an eye on the indie drama, The Last Beat. The film is loosely based on his last days in Paris, and it’s always interesting to see how a movie does a biopic without being a straight biopic (Todd Haynes pulled this off brilliantly with the I’m Not There, which was based on the life of Bob Dylan). Today, we have samples of two songs from the film, and I’ll leave it to the Morrison fans to decide how well they evoke the deceased musician. Hit the jump to listen to the songs and an exclusive new image, and click here to keep up with the movie on Facebook. The Last Beat stars Shawn Andrews (Dazed & Confused), Cameron Richardson (Entourage) Martha Higareda (Street Kings), Kevin Corrigan (Pineapple Express), and Seymour Cassell (Rushmore). Here’s the »

Arnold Schwarzenegger continues his journey back into the good graces of action fandom with his next entry, Sabotage, and it may be just the vehicle to get him over the hump. Directed by David Ayer, who is known for his gritty, violent style with such films as Harsh Times, Street Kings, and End Of Watch, the film has a nice ensemble cast to plus up Arnold's considerable clout, including Joe Manganiello, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Olivia Williams, Max Martini, Josh Holloway, and »

After a few years of making tepidly-received cop dramas like Harsh Times and Street Kings, director David Ayer turned a lot of heads last year with the release of End of Watch - a surprisingly powerful, small-scale Lapd story featuring powerful performances from stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. One potentially dangerous side effect of that success, though, is raised expectations for the filmmaker's next work - and today, thanks to Yahoo! we are getting a first glimpse at what that feature will look like. Based on a screenplay by Skip Woods, whose track record includes worrisome titles like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and A Good Day To Die Hard, Sabotage follows the team members of a elite DEA task force. The group works like a family and as a result they have had a great deal of success together. Things start getting really dangerous, however, when the team takes out »
“Some of us are getting paid and some of us are getting dead.” The new trailer for David Ayer’s “Sabotage” has hit the Internet and it looks action-packed! While the new film will not hit theaters until April 2014, anticipation and exciting are quickly building for the new action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. This movie looks nuts! Check out images from the film here. David Ayer is best known as the writer of the Academy Award winning film “Training Day” in 2001. He later started a career in directing with the film “Street Kings” and “End of Watch.” Whether Ayer has written or directed it, his films are fierce and [ Read More ]

Over a year ago, we got a first look at Arnold Schwarzenegger in the action thriller Ten from director David Ayer (End of Watch, Street Kings), but now the film is called Sabotage and we have some more photos from the film. The film follows an elite DEA task force who find themselves being taken out one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house. The first photo only featured Schwarzenegger, but now some new photos show us some of his team, though the only ones we can pick out seem to be Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) and Mireille Enos (World War Z), but Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway and more are also in the movie. It looks like there's going to be some kick-ass action in this one. Here are the new photos from David Ayer's Sabotage from USA Today: Sabotage is directed by David Ayer »

Yesterday I briefly mentioned David Ayer’s upcoming film, “Sabotage,” and today we’re treated to a few images from the film- courtesy of USA Today. The “End of Watch“ and “Street Kings” director is returning, once again, to the world of law enforcement and its dealings with organized crime. The IMDb synopsis of the film reads like this: “Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.”
The rest of the images can be seen here.
The film is set to be released on April 11th, and will probably be the most “serious” of the movies that Schwarzenegger has made since returning to Hollywood. His return to pure action, outside of the “Expendables” movies, has been met with general apathy. »

Filmmaker David Ayer grew in the ranks in Hollywood, first as a screenwriter with the film “Training Day,” “S.W.A.T.,” and the original “The Fast and The Furious.” Since the early 2000s, Ayer transitioned into directing with the movies “Street Kings” and “End of Watch.” Ayer’s latest film “Sabotage” is positioned to be another hard-hitting action movie from the 45-year-old writer/director. Open Road Films released new images (via USA Today) from the movie “Sabotage” that features Arnold Schwarzenegger and co-star Sam Worthington. The images showcase the films heavy action and Schwarzenegger’s bad haircut, as the Austrian-born action star says, “It’s the most stupid haircut I have ever had. Look at the [ Read More ]

L.A. County chief coroner investigator Craig Harvey has been providing forensic advice to Hollywood for TV shows ranging from “Jag” and “Boomtown” to “Southland” and “NCIS,” as well as films like “Pathology,” “Deja Vu” and “Street Kings.”
In The Beginning
Harvey’s stint as coroner consultant began when producer Donald Bellisario reached out to him in the early 2000s for the series “Jag.” When Bellisario moved to “NCIS,” Harvey was asked to brief thesp David McCallum for his role as a coroner investigator. Today, Harvey and the writer-producers of “NCIS” know each other so well that he can call in his advice by phone.
Accuracy, Accuracy, Accuracy
“Just about every show that has a forensic aspect, I probably have talked to a writer, talked to a production set decorator,” Harvey says. His advice covers things like signage, lighting, tools and what’s in the autopsy room. “I make it as real as possible, »

Next year’s full of potentially great films, so to help, here’s a list of 25 movies we're most looking forward to in 2014...
These lists of anticipated forthcoming movies have become an annual fixture by now, and as ever, our selection has been tricky to whittle down. In restricting our list to just 25, we've tried to create a mix of the high-profile and the less obvious. Movies such as Non-Stop, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Big Hero Six and Edge Of Tomorrow came close but didn't quite make the cut, even though they have much to offer for their own reasons.
Furthermore, given the number of films competing for space, we've left the latest chapters of The Hunger Games and The Hobbit off the list. We're keen to see both, but we're wary of taking up slots with movies »
Harry Potter’s villainous Lucius Malfoy, Jason Isaacs, has joined the impressive ensemble cast of David Ayer’s Fury. Starring Brad Pitt as Wardaddy, he and a group of soldiers find themselves behind enemy lines along with their tank. Isaacs will reportedly play a captain whom Wardaddy turns to in a time of need. Isaacs has always been an actor to stand out in his roles, and I still remember seeing him in the cinema for the first time back in 1997 when Dragonheart came out.
For Ayer, who is writing and directing, this will be his first foray into the war genre since 2001′s U-571. Since then, his films have revolved around cops and criminals with both his directorial efforts; Street Kings, End Of Watch, and Harsh Times as well as the films he scripted; The Fast And The Furious, Training Day, Dark Blue, and S.W.A.T. I’ve absolutely loved some of Ayer’s work, »

World War II is familiar territory for Brad Pitt after his Nazi-killing heyday in Inglorious Basterds, but now he gets to fight the war with a tank!
This is the first picture of the cast, and the tank, from the upcoming David Ayer's new film Fury, starring Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal and Michael Pena. Ayer debuted the photo on twitter yesterday.
Pics: Star Sightings
The story will follow this tank crew as they lead one last offensive against the waning Nazi forces in 1945. Also, Brad Pitt's character is named Wardaddy, so you have to be excited for that!

Fury is currently scheduled to be released November 14, 2014. »
Awesome! With shooting just about to start on David Ayer's new WWII tank movie Fury, the director has debuted a first look at the cast (and their tank) in a photo on Twitter. The shot shows the entire impressive cast, which includes Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal. It's obviously more of a promo shot, but there's still a gritty feel to it. I don't even know much about the story yet, but I'm very excited for a WWII movie set around one tank boasting this kind of fantastic cast. Sony is excited too, because it has a November 2014 release set. I hope we see more photos once they start shooting. Ayer: "@thecampaignbook @LoganLerman @realmichaelpena @jonnybernthal... The Crew of the Fury" Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows a crew of Americans who embark on a brave mission. Ayer »

Villains are an essential part of genre cinema. Though scores of filmmakers have attempted to create truly great villains throughout the history of film, only a few have succeeded in achieving this difficult goal.
This article will take a look at the great film villains of the 2000’s.
The criteria for this article is the same as my previous articles Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1970’s, Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1980’s and Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1990’s: the villains must be from live-action films only, and must pose some type of direct or indirect lethal threat. The villains can be either individuals or small groups that act as one unit. The villains must be human or human in appearance. Also, individuals who are the central protagonists/antiheroes of their respective films were excluded.

Music and fashion mogul Russell Simmons says he has October’s New York Comic-Con circled on his calendar for the first big reveal of The Harlem Shadow, a new animated online superhero series that will be set in the Jazz Age and features hip-hop star Common in the title voice role.
The series is an adaptation of the indie small-press series of the same name from RavenHammer Comics and the creative team of Brian Williams and Christian Colbert. (That version of the hero is shown in the poster image above.) After the Javitts Center debut, some early content will be »

Back in November of 2011, news surfaced that Universal Pictures was developing a new Scarface that was neither a sequel nor a remake of the 1983 Brian De Palma film, or the controversial black and white gangster film in 1932. At the time, it was said that the film would take common elements of those films to follow an outsider immigrant making his way into organized crime as he tries to achieve the American dream. Street Kings and End of Watch writer and director David Ayer was hired to script the film in the fall of 2011, and now Deadline reports Harry Potter franchise director David Yates is in talks to direct. Details on the story this time around are still scarce, though there are rumblings that the main character will be Mexican. Ayer previously talked about his approach to the film: "I see it as the story of the American dream, with a »

Liam Hemsworth will star in Aurora Rising.
The Hunger Games actor will play a surfer turned fighter pilot in the action drama.
After performing well in a challenging first mission, Hemsworth's character is recruited by an elite team whose task is to test a new generation of military aircraft, just as an international conflict is brewing.
McG has signed on to direct the languishing action adaptation Hunter Killer for Relativity Media. Antoine Fuqua and Gerard Butler were previously attached to direct and star, before they went on to make Olympus Has Fallen together.
The project is based on the novel Firing Point by Don Keith and George Wallace, which follows a new submarine captain who must work with a Navy Seal unit to rescue the Russian president, and stop a rogue Russian general from starting World War III.
Hunter Killer is in development . »
While Brad Pitt has spoken in the past about his retirement from acting (maybe as early as 2014), you wouldn’t guess it from his recent workload. This year alone, the A-lister is headlining the much-debated zombie blockbuster adaptation World War Z, playing an important supporting role in director Ridley Scott and writer Cormac McCarthy’s The Counselor, and making an appearance in Shame director Steve McQueen’s true-story drama 12 Years a Slave, which opens just in time for an Oscar qualifying run during 2013.
If that’s not enough, Pitt has now lined up his next starring role in Fury, a Ww II-set thriller written and directed by David Ayer – the screenwriter on Training Day and Fast and the Furious, as well as the filmmaker responsible for Street Kings and End of Watch.

Apparently World War Z just isn’t enough world war for Brad Pitt. He’s just been announced as taking on the lead in David Ayer’s World War II film Fury. Fury will follow a tank-crew made of five Americans during the final days of the war in Europe. Ayer, best known for writing Training Day and one of the greatest films of 2003, S.W.A.T., has had a pretty steady directing career so far, with films such as Harsh Times, Street Kings, and End Of Watch taking up space on his CV. 2014 will see the release of Ayer’s next film Ten, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Fury will be the first time that Ayer steps out of the cop/crime genre as a director. In fact, Ayer has stayed with the genre ever since 2001′s The Fast And The Furious, despite starting his career a year earlier with U-571. Let »
