A stunning opening weekend for the gangster biopic confirms Tom Hardy’s star power as he plays both the notorious twins

Until a year ago, Tom Hardy had mostly juggled supporting roles in major films, including Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, with lead roles in smaller movies, such as Bronson and Locke. He’d also starred alongside Shia Labeouf in ensemble drama Lawless, with Joel Edgerton in Warrior, and alongside Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine in action romcom This Means War. Over the past year, his lead roles became increasingly high profile with The Drop, Child 44 and Mad Max: Fury Road.

Everest movie review: peak experience

14 September 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A spectacular, heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock. See it in IMAX 3D for an enrapturing you-are-there feeling. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is the kind of movie movies were invented for: big, visceral, and intense, a heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock as it takes you places most of us will never get to so as to engage in the sort of life-threatening thrills that, paradoxically, remind us that we are alive. That’s an argument that safety-minded homebodies like me scoff at when risk-takers make it, but Everest makes you understand it deep in your gut.

And this is true even though Everest is the story of what had been the deadliest climbing season on the mountain until the 2014 and 2015 avalanches. »

"Child 44" Is The Cure For Feeling Good

6 September 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

What’s more bleak than Stalin’s Soviet Union? How about a series of child murders in Stalin’s Soviet Union? Such is the premise of Child 44, an excessively long, incredibly dour but well-acted thriller starring Mad Max himself, Tom Hardy, alongside Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman and a host of other talented European (though, not Russian) thespians. Based on the award-winning novel by Tom Rob Smith, it follows Hardy’s Ministry of State Security (Mgb) investigator Leo Demidov as he attempts to solve that aforementioned series of murders, despite the Soviet Union’s refusal to acknowledge the the acts are murder at all. Murder is a disease of the West, we are told, and “cannot happen in paradise.”

'Bourne 5' Gets Vincent Cassel as the Villain

1 September 2015 4:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures' Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel has found its villain, with Variety reporting that Vincent Cassel has signed on to play Jason Bourne's (Matt Damon) main enemy. The site reveals that Vincent Cassel is playing an assassin who is tracking Jason Bourne. On Friday, Matt Damon himself revealed that shooting begins sometime this week, but this report claims that production will start "later this summer."

No specific plot details have been given, but Matt Damon revealed last week that the story is set in a "post-Snowden world," with the main action taking place in a "austerity-riddled Europe." Edward Snowden was the CIA analyst who leaked confidential documents outlining the U.S. government's tactics for spying on the American public. The actor also confirmed that filming will begin in Greece, ending in Las Vegas. The main themes of this plot will revolve around spying on the public, civil liberties and democracy in general. »

Lionsgate Profits, Revenue Down on Weaker Film Slate

6 August 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A weaker film slate and softer home entertainment sales took a bite out of Lionsgate’s revenue and earnings during the most recent fiscal quarter.

Revenue for the studio topped out at $408.9 million for the three months ending in June, down 9% from year-earlier revenue of $449.4 million. Diluted earnings of 26 cents a share and profits of $40.7 million were also down from the year-earlier numbers of 30 cents and $43.3 million, respectively.

Earnings did beat analyst estimates of 7 cents, but revenues fell short of projections, failing to hit the $430 million that Wall Street expected. The studio’s stock slid nearly 6% in after-market trading amid widespread losses in the media sector. Investors are concerned that the cable business is losing subscribers, potentially threatening a major source of income for television and film creators.

Lionsgate’s motion picture arm saw revenue hit $275.4 million, compared to $331.9 million in the prior year quarter, as the studio fielded only one new wide release, »

First off, I want to apologize for this column's absence this past couple of weeks. When It Follows and Ex Machina arrived on Blu-ray back on July 14 I honestly completely spaced and forgot all about this column, which is a shame considering those are two of my top three movies of 2015 so far. That said, if you weren't aware they were released you can click on either title and purchase them now. Otherwise, here are this week's new DVD and Blu-ray releases along with a boatload of new release dates including Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Duke of Burgundy (another one of this year's best films), Mad Max: Fury Road (probably my favorite film of 2015 so far) and Furious 7.

The Worst Movies Of 2015 (So Far…)

25 June 2015 8:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week, us Wgtc critics counted off some of our favorite films of 2015 so far, but all in all, it hasn’t been a terrific first half of the year. Avengers: Age of Ultron arrived as a bloated, messy sequel with far less charm than the first McU phase-capper, talented sci-fi filmmakers like the Wachowskis and Neill Blomkamp delivered some of their worst work to date in Jupiter Ascending and Chappie, Johnny Depp eliminates any residual good-will in Mortdecai, and strong actors like Tom Hardy and Jonah Hill ended up mired in slogfests Child 44 and True Story. It’s been a depressing season for cinephiles punctuated by some occasional pleasant surprises.

But amid all the mediocre-to-bad entries from Hollywood so far this year, there were some titles that triumphed above all else to cement their place on the list of the year’s worst, most atrocious and irredeemable films. »

2015 has been a year of opposites for Tom Hardy. He starred in the critically slammed box office bomb "Child 44," and in the universally adored smash hit "Mad Max: Fury Road." But if anything, Hardy is a man who likes to push his limits and he pulls double duty in the upcoming gangster drama "Legend."
