American Made: first trailer for new Tom Cruise film

5 June 2017 10:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 6, 2017

Tom Cruise isn't just appearing in The Mummy this year. There's the very different American Made, too. Here's the trailer...

With The Mummy landing in cinemas this week, Universal has taken the opportunity to launch the trailer for its next Tom Cruise project. Once known as Mena, it’s now called American Made, and sees Cruise reuniting with director Doug Liman, following their work on Edge Of Tomorrow.

It also looks like Cruise’s most interesting acting role in some time.

The film tells the story of a hustler by the name of Barry Seal – the character is based on a real person, even if the adventures around him use creative licence – who finds himself recruited by the CIA.

Here’s the trailer…

(Apparently, the Us version of the trailer doesn’t have drugs in it, fact fans).

And here’s the full synopsis for the movie… »

Tom Cruise puts away his running shoes and takes to the skies in trailer for American Made

5 June 2017 8:16 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Tom Cruise may be hitting the big screens at the end of the week in The Mummy, but today marks the release of the International trailer for the real-life story, American Made.

The trailer gives Cruise a time to shine in the role as Seal with comedic aplomb from the very outset as he crash lands a plane full of cocaine, which also covers his face and bad 80’s haircut, into a suburban neighbourhood but before legging it before he can get caught hands a youngster bags of cocaine to keep quiet – You never saw me. We glimpse Domhnall Gleason as CIA agent Monty Shafer recruiting Seal in a bar before proceeding to get his groove on, on the bonnet of a car as the men’s deal goes from strength. Typical male bravado, womanising and deals galore commence in what promises to be a refreshing role for Cruise, »

FBI Director James Comey Compares Twitter to ‘A Dive Bar’ Full Of Screaming People

8 May 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s hard to get a super fix on James Comey but here’s my overall take on him.  He seems like a guy who knows he’s done something unbelievably bad and will spend the rest of his life trying to do the right thing.  But despite all of that, he still screwed up in a major way and more than likely did something he truly regretted.   It’s like in the movie The Inside Man.  The character Christopher Plummer played initially made a deal with Nazis to get his bank started.  Over the next 50 years or so he became wealthy and

Study Ranks American Actors’ British Accents, and Vice Versa

27 February 2017 4:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who’s seen “Mary Poppins” knows what a bad Cockney accent sounds like. But for the first time, British actors have ranked Dick Van Dyke’s “mockney” as the worst attempt at a U.K. accent in a pool of the highest grossing films’ leads.

Language-learning app Babbel commissioned ex-pat professional actors from both the U.K. and U.S. to vote on a five-point scale on how convincing the accents were for leading parts in blockbusters grossing over $100 million.

For the United States accent, American Actors UK awarded British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor a 4.5/5 for his work as Solomon Northup in “12 Years a Slave.” Tied for second are the DC superheros; Christian Bale as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman both garnered 4.2/5 scores.

Best in show for the Americans attempting the over-the-pond accents, awarded by British Actors in La, are Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger. Streep’s »

Denzel Washington Interview: The Director Reveals How He Opened Up ‘Fences’

11 January 2017 8:56 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ever since I first met Denzel Washington on the set of Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X,” I’ve felt comfortable with him. Maybe it’s because he and my mother grew up in the same working-class New York suburb, Mount Vernon. Fact is, I grew up in the film industry with Washington, along with Mel Gibson, Debra Winger, Bruce Willis, Kevin Costner, and John Travolta; we’re all close to the same age.

I know the way he swings his tall body into that loping, cocky walk. And it’s fun to watch him, in the green room at the Writers Guild, enthusiastically wave his hands around when he talks about directing. He’s in a good mood: His August Wilson film adaptation of “Fences” has been enthusiastically received, by critics, audiences and — perhaps most crucially for its Oscar chances — actors, landing the coveted SAG Ensemble nomination.
