We may still have more than a year and a half to wait until the release of David Ayer's Suicide Squad, but already fans are so pumped that they are imagining the possibilities. This has led to the creation of two pretty badass fan-made trailers, the first of which is below: Like most fan-made trailers, this clip - created by YouTube user solyentbrak1 - is made up of footage from a whole variety of different films, and this one in particular borrows from all over the place, including television shows (Arrow, How To Get Away With Murder), feature films (everything from Jack Reacher to Dallas Buyers Club) and even other fan-made films (specifically Batman: City of Scars). This second one from YouTube's WhiplashDynamo uses some similar sources, but also creates a very different kind of tone just through music alone. Weirdly, I could see both of these trailers coming »

The Equalizer – a movie that desperately tries to spin Denzel Washington’s role as something wholly new and inventive, yet anyone familiar with one of Hollywood’s most established talents will know exactly the kind of performance Washington brings to Robert McCall. In what could essentially be a prequel to Man On Fire, director Antoine Fuqua creates a “different kind of superhero” by remaking a 1980s television series that originally starred Edward Woodward, finding a hero who lets his actions speak louder than words ever could. Denzel is a tight-lipped badass who knows his way around a home improvement store, but The Equalizer sets out to be something more than another action-centric thriller – an achievement that borders success long enough to hold our attention.
While updating the episodic source material, Fuqua does ensure that a subtle 80s vibe is kept in the sense of McCall’s Terminator-esque attitude. Denzel goes »

One of the nicest surprises from this morning's 2015 Golden Globe nominations was the love the Hollywood Foreign Press Association bestowed upon Ava DuVernay's "Selma." The dramatic story behind the historic 1965 Selma-to-Birmingham march earned four nominations including Best Picture - Drama, Best Original Song ("Glory" by John Legend and Common), Best Actor in a Drama (David Oyelowo) and Best Director (DuVernay). It's somewhat disheartening that DuVernay is only the fifth woman nominated by the HFPA (still more than the Academy Awards for the moment) and the first African-American one, but this sort of love for one of the best pictures of the year? We can only hope Oscar is listening. DuVernay and Oyelowo were in Toronto this morning following a special Tiff screening last night. She jumped on the phone to chat about the big day. *** HitFix: Congratulations Ava! How is Toronto? Where were you when you heard about the nominations? »

Palm Springs, CA (December 7, 2014) . The 26th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival (Psiff) will present David Oyelowo with the Breakthrough Performance Award, Actor for his critically acclaimed performance as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Ava DuVernay.s Selma at its annual Awards Gala. The Gala will also present awards to previously announced honorees Richard Linklater, Julianne Moore, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Redmayne, J.K. Simmons, Reese Witherspoon and the cast of The Imitation Game. Presented by Cartier, and hosted by Mary Hart, the Awards Gala will be held Saturday, January 3 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. The Festival runs January 2-12.
It’s very possible that, by the Oscars in February, every name associated with the awards season will somehow be honored by the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Its winners are all names you know: Julianne Moore for "Still Alice," Rosamund Pike for "Gone Girl," Eddie Redmayne for "Theory of Everything," and J.K. Simmons for "Whiplash" are among the talent set to be honored at the fest’s awards gala. Now we can add two predictable, completely worthy names to the list: Benedict Cumberbatch and David Oyelowo. They'll be honored on Psiff's gala on Jan. 3, 2015. Well, not just Cumberbatch — the entire cast of "The Imitation Game," in fact. Psiff announced that the inevitable Best Actor nominee, Keira Knightly (a Best Actress candidate herself), and the rest of the director Morten Tyldum’s biopic cast will take home the ensemble performance award. "'The Imitation Game' is one of the »

Jai Courtney plays hero Kyle Reese in the fifth Terminator film, Terminator Genisys, whose trailer was released on Thursday, and you may be asking yourself, who is that hottie and where have I seen him before...and where can I see more of him? Yep, the 28-year-old Australian actor portrayed the blond-haired gladiator Varro in Starz's racy series Spartacus: War of the Damned (and had quite a few raunchy sex scenes). Yep, that was him tussling with the Tom Cruise movie Jack Reacher, and he did indeed play Bruce Willis' John McClane's estranged spy son Jack in Die Hard film No. 5, A Good Day to Die Hard. This past March, you may have been »

Rosamund Pike nearly stole the show in David Fincher's "Gone Girl" but he stole the hearts of the Palm Springs International Film Festival's committee members. The actress is getting the Breakthrough Performance Award! Last year, "12 Years A Slave's" Lupita Nyong'o received the same award and walked all the way to Oscar glory!

.Rosamund Pike perfectly taps into Gillian Flynn.s »
Palm Springs: The place to be during Oscar season. The California town’s annual film festival is a hotbed of potential nominees, actors and actresses wrangled for speciality honors that amplify existing buzz. Currently receiving accolades from Palm Springs International Film Festival: Eddie Redmayne ("The Theory of Everything"), Julianne Moore ("Still Alice"), and J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash"). Time for another name: Rosamund Pike. She costarred in "Die Another Day," "Pride & Prejudice," The Rock's "Doom," "An Education," "Jack Reacher," and "The World's End," but it took "Gone Girl" to finally come into her own. At least according to the Psiff, who will honor the Breakthrough Performance Award, Actress at its annual Awards Gala. "Rosamund Pike perfectly taps into Gillian Flynn’s complex character from the novel 'Gone Girl’bringing to life the privileged, manipulative and calculating Amy Dunne. It’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role,” said Film Festival »

With Gone Girl making a big splash at the box office and having some staying power over the past month and a half, it's time for Rosamund Pike to lock down her next project. Variety reports the star of Jack Reacher and The World's End is now in early talks to star in The Mountain Between Us, an adaptation of Charles Martin's book of the same name name set up at Fox 2000 & Chernin Entertainment. Previously Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was going to star in the film with Pacific Rim's Charlie Hunnam, but she probably fell away since she's likely playing Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad at Warner Bros. next. Ashley (Pike) is a writer catching a flight from Salt Lake City and heading East for her wedding. Ben (Hunnam) is a doctor returning from a medical conference. When their flight is cancelled, the strangers agree to charter a ride. »

Today’s Week in Review takes us to the highly probable rumor mill and some potentially sensational casting.
First up, The Daily Mail is reporting that Christoph Waltz is on board to be the villain in the still untitled, Sam Mendes-helmed Bond 24. The Daily Mail was also the source behind other potential Bond news regarding Lea Seydoux, potentially the next Bond girl or “femme fatale.” And although it would seem obvious that Waltz would be playing the villain, even that seems ambiguous. “It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe, or a bit of both,” said one of the Mail’s anonymous sources. Still though, if you’re going to cast Anton Chigurh in your previous Bond movie, the next logical step is to cast Hans Landa, right?
The next concerns the potential full cast of Suicide Squad, the DC movie full of a team of super villains. »

Terminator: Genisys star Jai Courtney is in talks to join director David Ayer’s DC Entertainment film Suicide Squad. According to Variety, he’s up for the role of the Batman villain known as Deadshot.
The site also confirms that Tom Hardy, Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto are in various stages of discussions to join the film. It was recently rumored that Leto is up for the role of The Joker, and Robbie could be cast as Harley Quinn. As for Hardy, he is looking to play founding team member Rick Flagg, and Smith might be up for the role of Digger Harkness, aka Captain Boomerang, who is a villain of The Flash. Jesse Eisenberg, who co-stars in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as Lex Luthor, may also be joining the project.
These are some pretty spectacular casting choices, and I hope all of the above plays out. »

I don't know what Hollywood sees in Jai Courtney, but I saw all I need to see from the guy in A Good Day to Die Hard and Divergetn to know he isn't exactly someone I would say radiates personality on the big screen. Sure, in Jack Reacher he was fine as a more-or-less mute brute, but even the latest EW covers previewing his role in Terminator: Genisys are cringe worthy. Now, apparently he'll be offered even more millions, this time to play a part in one of the upcoming Warner Bros. and DC Comics comic book features over the next six years. While Deadline says Courtney may end up playing a character in any number of the upcoming DC/WB movies, Variety suggests that character may be Batman villain Deadshot for David Ayer's Suicide Squad. This would add Courtney to a cast that seems closer to being set, »

"Terminator: Genisys" star Jai Courtney may be close to nabbing a role in yet another big-screen franchise. The "A Good Day to Die Hard" actor is in talks for a "major role" in Warner Bros.' forthcoming "Suicide Squad" movie that may be Batman nemesis Deadshot, according to Variety. The David Ayer-directed film is also reportedly eyeing a number of other A-list stars including Tom Hardy (Rick Flag), Will Smith (possibly Captain Boomerang), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Jared Leto (the Joker), though no actors have yet been cast. As depicted in their most recent incarnation, the "Suicide Squad" is a team of supervillains who are given a chance at redemption by embarking on a number of high-risk black-ops missions for the U.S. government. Deadshot is a skilled assassin known for his trademark metallic faceplate and cybernetic eye. Created by Bob Kane, David Vern Reed and Lew Schwartz, »

Update 11/13: Deadline reports Jai Courtney is in the mix for something, but it might be any one of the Warner Bros. DC Comics movies through 2020. Australian actor Jai Courtney is one of those actors that mainstream America probably couldn’t spot in a line-up, but Hollywood has a decided hard-on for the thespian. He was chosen to play Bruce Willis' son in “A Good Day to Die Hard,” had a key villain role in Tom Cruise’s “Jack Reacher” and had big supporting turns in “I, Frankenstein” (2014) and “Divergent.” While the verdict is still out on the 28-year-old actor, Tinseltown has doubled down on the Aussie and this year he was cast in the critical role of Kyle Reese in the “Terminator: Genisys” reboot. In short, Courtney is this year’s Sam Worthington, another Australian actor that Hollywood went ape for after his appearance in the billion-dollar-grossing “Avatar. »

It seemed as though the packed nature of the cast for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a one-time thing, an easy way of introducing a large ensemble of DC Comics characters before focusing on smaller casts in subsequent films. But that may not be the case exactly. Over the past few months, the studio has been putting together the ensemble for Suicide Squad, the supervillain-filled DC Comics adaptation that will arrive in August 2016 after BvS opens the previous March, and it’s looking pretty stacked with talent already. Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie are all in various stages of negotiations, with Robbie poised to play Harley Quinn and Jesse Eisenberg potentially set to appear as Lex Luthor, and we recently learned that Jared Leto is also in talks to play The Joker. Now we know who Warner Bros. is looking at to play the Batman villain Deadshot, »
