‘Scandal’ Season Finale Buckles Under Dizzying Absurdities

17 April 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scandal” often brings to mind Stephen J. Cannell’s story about pitching “The A-Team” to Brandon Tartikoff. The legendary producer fondly recalled that the wilder the pitch became (until they were essentially just winging it with whatever crazy thing they could think of), the more the NBC executive liked it.

Viewers have largely responded the same way to Shonda Rhimes’ political drama, which wrapped up its third season Thursday night, punctuated at frequent intervals by the by-now customary dramatic pyrotechnics and insanity.

To be fair, this comes from someone who had little regard for the ABC show when it premiered and doesn’t like it much better now.

Yet it’s hard not to admire how the series became a genuine hit (and thus worthy of attention on those terms) by simply going nuts – embracing a simple-minded view of politics and ridiculous elements of espionage, including the family of political »

Sabotage - Movie Review

28 March 2014 | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

High-tension action with an even higher body count.

Arnold Schwarzenegger takes top billing for only the second time since ending his political career, and finally seems to be comfortable in front of the camera. Arnold is joined by a great ensemble cast, with the likes of Sam Worthington (Avatar, Wrath of the Titans), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow, Iron Man), and Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike). They all have great on-screen chemistry and are very convincing as a tight-knit group of DEA task force agents that have worked together for a long time.

David Ayer takes the reigns as director of this action thriller.  Sabotage only marks Ayer’s fourth time directing a feature film, but it has the similar raw and visceral look of his previous two movies, End of Watch and Street Kings.  Ayer, who is mostly known for his writing (The Fast and the Furious, Training Day, »

Movie Review: Sabotage

27 March 2014 10:22 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Sabotage won’t be loved by many, except die-hard Arnold Schwarzenegger fans. Fair warning, it’s not Shakespeare. You probably knew that already, but in case you didn’t, I have done my job by warning you. Sabotage is a cops gone bad flick, directed by David Ayer, who helped write the penultimate bad cop flick, Training Day (2001). This movie definitely has gritty street cop in its DNA. Ayer co-wrote the film with Skip Woods whose credits include: A Good Day to Die Hard (2013), The A-Team (2010), Hitman (2007), and Swordfish (2001). Woods is an action movie writer who gets to play with an action movie icon so let the bullets fly where they may.

The plot revolves around a DEA Special Operations Group that infiltrates and arrests/eliminates the drug cartels that proliferate around the globe. These specialists are great at what they do, just ask them, but their fortunes fade when »

Film Review: ‘Sabotage’

27 March 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In writer-director David Ayer’s last law-enforcement drama, the remarkable “End of Watch,” there wasn’t a moment that didn’t feel lived-in and true. The same cannot be said of Ayer’s “Sabotage,” a gruesome and frequently preposterous B-grade actioner about an elite team of DEA agents who run afoul of a ruthless Mexican cartel — and each other. That the team’s battle-scarred leader is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the best and most substantial of his post-Governator comeback roles, gives a mild kick to this otherwise strained attempt at a latter-day “Wild Bunch” or “Treasure of the Sierra Madre” updated to the mean streets of metro Atlanta. Likely to repel even some of the hard-r action crowd with its intentionally scuzzy milieu and lack of a rooting interest, this $35 million Open Road release will be hard-pressed to top sleeper hit “End of Watch’s” $41 million domestic haul.

25 March 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Right now Arnold Schwarzenegger is making the publicity rounds for this week's release of Sabotage, and that means "The Tonight Show" got to have some fun with the action star. We already know the Terminator himself isn't shy about pleasing his fans by repeating some of his most iconic lines, but Jimmy Fallon wanted to have a bit more fun by highlighting an appearance Schwarzenegger made on QVC to hype some interesting food dicing devices. For anyone who might be working on a new Arnold Schwarzenegger soundboard online, you're going to want all these versions of this one particular fan favorite line. Watch! Here's Arnold Schwarzenegger on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon (via Vulture): And if you haven't seen the most recent trailer for Sabotage, check it out right here.

Watch: One Final Red Band Trailer for Schwarzenegger's 'Sabotage'

12 March 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've already seen at least one red band trailer for the latest action thriller Sabotage starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but now one more restricted trailer has arrived to get fans excited before the film's release in just a couple weeks. There's f-bombs and blood splatters, some girls kissing, and a new part of the plot that makes things personal. We're not sure if Schwarzenegger's best action years are definitively behind him, but this particular attempt doesn't look like anything spectacular. It's certainly not better than Schwarzenegger crushing stuff with his own personal tank, but it could be an entertaining action thriller. Here's the new red band trailer for David Ayer's Sabotage, originally from Yahoo: Sabotage is directed by David Ayer (End of Watch) and written by Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard, The A-Team). The film follows Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of an elite DEA task force »

Recommission: The Making of RoboCop

12 March 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with production visual effects supervisor Jamie Price and visual effects supervisor Nordin Rahhali about bringing a robotic enhanced law enforcement officer to the futuristic streets of Detroit once again...

“I saw the original in the theatre when it came out in 1987,” recalls Jamie Price (The A-Team) who was chosen by filmmaker José Padilha (Bus 174) to supervise the visual effects for RoboCop (2014).  “I watched it and the sequels again before we made this movie to re-familiarize myself because sometimes your recollections don’t always match the reality of it.  One of my first questions to José was, ‘What approach are you thinking for the movie?’  In a lot of ways the original is untouchable.  He had the same feeling and was clear that we weren’t remaking RoboCop.  We were making our version of it.”  The subject matter would be the same though the tone shifted away from »

Special Features - Dodging Bullets: Why Liam Neeson would have made a terrible 007

11 March 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on why Liam Neeson would have made a terrible 007....

Like a lot of you, I get way too caught up with speculative casting and thinking about 'what might have been' when it comes to certain actors taking over the most iconic cinematic characters.  The entire school of thought is practically a sub-genre.  Half the articles I see on Zergnet are devoted to articles about movie casting revealing little kernels of info like Tom Cruise was originally slated to play Iron Man.  People seem to have an endless appetite for this kind of stuff. 

So I was hardly surprised this week when I saw a lot of web space devoted to Liam Neeson discussing his flirtation with the role of James Bond.  While I can understand why they were interested in Neeson for the role, I'm extremely grateful he was never cast.  Why?

Because Liam Neeson would have been a terrible James Bond. »

We love you, now change: What other actors are due for a McConaissance?

6 March 2014 2:50 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Matthew McConaughey’s journey from rom-com stud muffin to Oscar-winning actor is officially complete. Six years ago, he starred in Fool’s Gold and Surfer, Dude. At Sunday night’s Oscars, he took home the Best Actor prize for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, the culmination of a string of career-rehabilitating roles that included Magic Mike and Mud. McConaughey was always a popular star, and his frivolous, formulaic romantic comedies likely served as golden handcuffs for several years of his career that left him in a creative rut. Give him credit for recognizing that and then actually doing something about it. »

Box office report: 'Non-Stop' stops 'The Lego Movie' in its tracks with $30 million debut, edging out 'Son of God'

2 March 2014 12:36 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Liam Neeson may not have become a full-fledged action star until he was in his mid-50s, but the man is proving downright unstoppable at the box office. Neeson’s latest action outing, Non-Stop, bested the competition this Oscar weekend with a stronger-than-expected $30 million opening, knocking The Lego Movie out of the No. 1 spot it had held for three straight weeks and topping the weekend’s other major debut, Son of God, which took second place with $26.5 million.

While Non-Stop’s opening fell well short of the $49.5 opening weekend haul of Neeson’s last action flick, 2012′s Taken 2, the »

'Ant-Man' casting: Who is Patrick Wilson playing? -- Theories

28 February 2014 9:30 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

News broke yesterday that Conjuring star Patrick Wilson is in talks to join Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man, Marvel’s summer 2015 blockbuster about the little superhero with the big heart or whatever. Wilson has been on a bit of a roll lately, playing James Wan’s go-to horror guy in Conjuring and the Insidiouses, but a role in Ant-Man would be a return to the blockbuster-action milieu of Watchmen (where he played a good guy) and The A-Team (where he played a bad guy). There’s no official word on who Wilson would be playing, but let’s make a few »

Liam Neeson's Career Reinvention Rages Onward "Non-Stop"

28 February 2014 2:45 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Once upon a time, Liam Neeson would have been spending the week leading up to the Oscars preparing to attend as a nominee. Today, he is preparing for the release of Non-Stop, the latest installment in a bizarre but awesome career renaissance that began with 2008’s Taken and has continued with films including The A-Team, Unknown and The Grey. At the age of 61, Neeson has succeeding in doing the reverse of what many actors struggle to do: he has made the transition from serious actor to action star. He is clearly having fun in the autumn of his career, and one cannot blame him when the results are as entertaining as Non-Stop, an energetic thriller elevated out of mediocrity by his presence.

Patrick Wilson Joins Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man,' Marvel Plans 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Teaser In March

27 February 2014 12:54 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Patrick Wilson doesn't do the blockbuster thing very often, and when he has—"Watchmen," "The A-Team"—the results have been mixed to say the least. But he's going to give it another shot, because when Marvel comes calling, you pick up the phone. The actor has joined Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man," according to Deadline, getting set up alongside a cast that includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michael Pena. His role? It's not being revealed just yet, and in fact, not much is known about the plot except that it will be a "heist movie" (though we'd advise not to take that phrase too literally). But with the movie just over a year away, set for July 17, 2015, and filming to begin soon, we'd wager more intel will be coming soon. And speaking of 2015, Marvel is getting ready to tease their big sequel "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" next month. Joss Whedon »

Watch: Arnold Schwarzengger Gets Betrayed in UK 'Sabotage' Trailer

27 February 2014 10:48 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm not telling you it's gonna be okay. Because it's not." The most recent red band trailer for Sabotage showed off plenty of blood and action in the latest action thriller starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and now a new trailer from the UK dives a little more into the plot. This time we get the hint that someone on Schwarzenegger's skilled DEA team might be responsible for some of them being hunted down and killed after a pivotal drug cartel bust. Could Joe Manganiello, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard or Mireille Enos be the bad guy here? We'll find out when the film hits theaters early this spring. Watch it! Here's the UK trailer for David Ayer's Sabotage, originally from Yahoo UK: Sabotage is directed by David Ayer (End of Watch) and written by Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard, The A-Team).

Ben Kingsley talks 'All Hail The King' before fans gets sneak peek at 'The Winter Soldier'

25 February 2014 3:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Fans and members of the press entered the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood for a special screening of Marvel Studios' newest One-Shot short, "All Hail The King," in advance of its official release as an extra on the "Thor: The Dark World" Blu-ray and DVD.   The evening's event kicked off immediately with the short film, written and directed by "Iron Man 3" scribe Drew Pearce and starring Sir Ben Kingsley. For 15 minutes, viewers get a glimpse into the life of fake Mandarin, Trevor Slattery (Kingsley), after the events of the third "Iron Man" film. In lock up at a high security prison due to his part in the Aldrich Killian/Mandarin plot, the story unfolds as a documentarian with access to Trevor attempts to dig deeper into the apparently shallow actor, digging up footage of Trevor's first big acting break on a CBS '80s TV show called "Caged Heat »

Marvel Previews 'Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King'

25 February 2014 6:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the numerous special features attached to the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release of Thor: The Dark World, is the latest Marvel short film, Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King. Last night, I headed down to the Arclight Hollywood for a screening of this short, which features Ben Kingsley reprising his Iron Man 3 role as Trevor Slattery, the British actor who tricked the world into thinking he was a dangerous terrorist known as The Mandarin. These shorts have become big hits with the fans, but All Hail the King is by far the biggest one yet, that you surely won't want to miss.

The 15-minute short opens with Jackson Norris (Scoot McNairy) a documentary filmmaker who arrives at Seagate Prison for his final interview with Trevor Slattery, as he tries to figure out who, exactly, this mysterious man really is. However, before the interview itself, we see »

‘Sabotage’ Red Band Trailer: Guns, Guts, People Screaming F*@k

7 February 2014 6:15 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger continues the post-gubernatorial Hollywood comeback that started with 2012′s The Expendables 2, with the one-liner laden Sabotage, which appears not to be content until it has checked the box of damn near every action flick standard. I have zero problem with this. Co-written with screenwriter Skip Woods (Hitman, The A-Team) and directed by David Ayers (Training Day, End of Watch) the film features Schwarzenegger as John “Breacher” Wharton, the hard-ass leader of an equally hard-ass crew of elite DEA operatives. When Breacher and his team stash a 10 million dollar haul after being sent to take down the safe house of a drug cartel, they’re slowly picked off one by one for their dirty deed. The premise is interesting, because they’re definitely not straight up good folks. Still, audiences will be rooting for them plenty all the same.
