Directed by Peter Landesman.
John F. Kennedy’s assassination is a moment in history shrouded in conspiracy theories. Parkland aims to recreate the three days – beginning with the day the President was shot – through to the immediate aftermath and death of JFK shooter Lee Harvey Oswald. Well-documented and thoroughly researched, Parkland is the directorial-debut of Peter Landesman - a journalist himself seeking to ignore the myth and focus on the reality. ‘Parkland’ itself is the hospital Kennedy died within – and where, days later, Oswald was rushed to. Clearly capitalising on an intriguing and important story, Parkland fails to match the cinematic scale of the event. »

I'll never pretend to be any kind of expert on the subject of racial diversity in Hollywood. However, there's been a slew of comments recently from director Lee Daniels about his new film that I found so obtuse and baffling that I thought it warranted examination.
Entertainment Weekly ran a series of eight stills from movie to promote the upcoming release of what is now referred to as Lee Daniels' The Butler. This film is fast becoming a sideshow. First there was the battle over the title of the movie between The Weinstein Company and Warner Bros. which fast became the most ludicrous tango in recent memory. The solution was to tack the director's name on the front of the film and make it look that much more pretentious on Oscar ballot cards. »

A first look at Sean Penn in the upcoming actioner The Gunman from director Pierre Morel has been released and while you may want to say, "Hey, look! Sean Penn is doing a fun action flick from the director of Taken," he tells USA Today it's much more than that. "Here's the funny thing, calling it an 'action film' is kind of like calling Meryl Streep a sexy blonde chick. She is. But that really doesn't tell the story of what she is at all," he said. "I don't separate this in my mind from anything else I have done. It's a very human story that deals with the same things exploited in action films, like warfare." The film co-stars an impressive list of names including Idris Elba, Javier Bardem and Sam Riley and centers on an international spy (Penn) who must clear his name in order to save himself »

Sean Penn has starred in an array of films with some excellent, memorable performances, but we’ve yet to see him as a full-blown action star. The first opportunity to see him take on such a role will be The Gunman, which is currently filming in Europe.
The film is based on a novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and was adapted by Pete Travis (who directed Dredd and Vantage Point.) Directed by Pierre Morel (Taken), the story revolves around Martin Terrier (Penn), a hitman who had planned to get out of the game and escape with his love (Jasmine Trinca), but is unable to when his company betrays him. He’s sent on a European-spanning journey filled with a whole lot of bloody deaths.
While this sounds like a very action-focused film, Penn says it’s much more complex than that. Check out what he had to say about the genre below. »

We saw a promising first trailer for the dramatic thriller arrive last week, giving us our first good look at the summer release. And now Relativity have released the first poster, and whilst the artwork is a little less than inspiring, I’m still looking forward to seeing the film itself.

But after one costly mistake, Adam is blackmailed by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) to turn corporate spy by going to work for the firm’s top competitor, which is run by Wyatt’s old mentor, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford). Adam soon finds himself delivered into prepackaged success, »

Just over a week ago, one of two new projects landing the talents of Spanish actor Javier Bardem was The Gunman, a new thriller from Taken director Pierre Morel. The film is based on Jean-Patrick Macnhette's novel Prone Gunman with a script by Dredd and Vantage Point director Pete Travis and Sean Penn in the lead role as international hitman Martin Terrier, who is betrayed by the organization he works for and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat-and-mouse across all of Europe. Now THR has word that Thor and The Losers star Idris Elba is in talks to take a role in the European cat-and-mouse thriller. More below! Elba will be playing a mysterious operative named Dupont, and it's not clear how he gets involved with the story. Will he end up working with Penn or joining Bardem in bringing him down?

After taking on James Bond in last year's Skyfall, the intimidating Javier Bardem will be taking a couple more interesting roles. Deadline has word on two new deals for the Spanish actor including A Most Violent Year, the next film from Margin Call writer and director J.C. Chandor, and The Gunman (formerly known as Prone Gunman) from Taken director Pierre Morel. Details on A Most Violent Year are unknown since the title was just announced when Chandor premiered his newest film All is Lost, starring Robert Redford, at Cannes (read Alex's review right here), but in this film Bardem will play the good guy. As for The Gunman, the film is based on Jean-Patrick Macnhette's novel Prone Gunman with a script by Dredd and Vantage Point director Pete Travis. Sean Penn joined the project earlier this year in the stry of an international hitman Martin Terrier, who is betrayed by »

Gamers have been singing the praises of the Gears of War series since the first epic installment broke out to major acclaim. That first entry featured a tough, muscular score by the talented Kevin Riepl (Aliens: Colonial Marines) which helped set the gritty, ultra-violent tone of the series and remains one of my personal favorite game scores. Since then, the following two Gow editions went for a more sweeping, grandiose landscape, accompanied by uplifting themes by another celebrated composer, Steve Jablonsky – whose primary credits began in feature films (including the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and its prequel), and whose work in those games took on an appropriately cinematic quality. Jablonsky is joined by Jacob Shea (a frequent collaborator with Hans Zimmer, including The Dark Knight) to accompany the latest chapter in the hit saga, which fuses the heavy, adrenaline-pumping elements of part 1 with the broader canvas of 2 and 3.

From attempted assassinations, to an overrun White House, it’s safe to say that cinematic Presidents don’t exactly have it easy, especially when their lives are quite literally in the hands of their friend-or-foe secret service agents. In Olympus Has Fallen Gerard Butler plays Mike Banning, a disgraced former Presidential guard trapped in the White House when it falls under terrorist attack. It is then up to him to retake Olympus (secret service lingo for the White House), and save the President from his captors. With all the action and saving of a distressed President, Butler’s Mike Banning easily joins our list of actors who have stepped into the line of fire to valiantly protect the President. On a scale of success rates from Nicholas Cage in Guarding Tess to Dennis Quaid in Vantage Point, we’d say Olympus Has Fallen belongs somewhere near the top. Some secret »

Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has finally come to a completion. A well-thought out, well-orchestrated, and generally well done story arc, spread across three movies, and one which not only single-handedly changed not only comic books movies, but all of cinema.
And now we get to sit back and let the Batman legacy rest for a while as we ponder how awesome it’s b….. wait, what’s that? They’re already planning to reboot the Batman series?! But, didn’t they just reboot it, like literally less than 10 years ago?
Aw, well… looks as though Hollywood wants to dig up the still-warm corpse of the franchise and send it back to us. I suppose we should embrace it, and take this opportunity to discuss who we’d like to see as the villain in the next movie (the only rule: We will not use villains who have appeared »
