The 31 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now

11 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When you're in the mood for an action movie, Netflix has plenty to stream. Great, except that so many of their action titles are no-name, forgettable schlock. So we've done some of the heavy lifting by highlighting the best of the best currently available in the genre. Who do you want to see duke it out? Take your pick, from gangsters to gladiators, robots to ninjas, schoolkids to superheroes.

Cue that suiting-up pre-battle montage and start streaming, because here are some of the best action movies Netflix has to offer. (Availability subject to change.)

1. "13 Assassins" (2010) R

From director Takashi Miike ("Audition," "Ichi the Killer") comes this action-packed, samurai spectacular about 13 assassins on a suicide mission. Dig that 45-minute battle scene!

2. "48 Hrs."(1982) R

A cop (Nick Nolte) and a criminal (Eddie Murphy) have 48 hours to round up two cop-killers in this fast-paced action comedy classic.

Coens' 'Hail, Caesar!' gets a release date, Roger Deakins talks going back to film

29 October 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Universal Pictures has announced that the Coen brothers' "Hail, Caesar!," starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes and Scarlett Johansson, among others, will be released on Feb. 5, 2016. That effectively removes it from much awards season discussion that year, but you could sort of gather that, given the subject matter and apparent tone of the film. Like "The Hudsucker Proxy," "The Big Lebowski" and "Burn After Reading" — romps that came after heady prestige pics like "Barton Fink," "Fargo" and "No Country for Old Men" — "Hail, Caesar!" looks like the boys just having a bit of fun. What's interesting about the film, which begins shooting in Los Angeles next month, is that it marks cinematographer Roger Deakins' first trip back to the world of celluloid since his last collaboration with the filmmaker siblings, "True Grit." That was four years ago. He has since embraced digital photography, preferring the Arri Alexa camera on films like "In Time, »

Ben Whishaw’s Bear Wreaks Havoc In International Trailer For Paddington

28 October 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With his battered suitcase and iconic red hat in tow, Paddington bear is back in action, as the new trailer for Paul King’s big-screen adaptation attests.

The footage offers us our first taste of Ben Whishaw in the title role, after the Skyfall actor replaced Colin Firth — who “consciously uncoupled” from the part and subsequently left the role — back in June. Charting the bear’s globetrotting trip from the jungles of Peru to the congested streets of London, Paddington will follow the adventures of Michael Bond’s creation as he adjusts to life in the England capital — or, at the very least, tries to.

Soon, though, the whimsical character attracts the attention of Nicole Kidman’s museum taxidermist, who has her eyes set on Paddington from the get-go.

Joining Whishaw and Kidman for the film are Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Michael Gambon and Imelda Staunton. »

The new trailer for Paddington has Nicole Kidman in Cruella de Vil mode

28 October 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I don't know if you were aware of this, but the David Heyman produced adaptation of the beloved children's book series Paddington was pushed from a Christmas Day release to January 16, 2015. Could it be due to Colin Firth dropping out as the voice of the lead character at the last minute to be replaced by Skyfall's Ben Whishaw? Or maybe it is because the movie looks awful? Probably neither. It looks most likely that the movie is, well, too British for American audiences and so it will »

Ben Whishaw Finally Gives a Voice to 'Paddington' in New UK Trailer

28 October 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The Weinstein Company just recently pulled their family film Paddington from the original Christmas Day release date to arrive in the middle of January 2015 instead. But since the film is still on track for release around Thanksgiving in the United Kingdom, a new trailer form across the pond has just arrived. And what makes this trailer much better than the first is that Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) can finally be heard as the voice of the title bear (he replaced Colin Firth after a "conscious uncoupling" occurred). This still looks pretty silly and childish, but movies like this always pop up around the holidays for the kids, so there ya go. Here's the new UK trailer for Paul King's Paddington from Studio Canal UK: And as a bonus, here's a featurette about bringing the bear to life from Studio Canal UK too: If you haven't yet, you can still watch »

Paddington has premiered its new trailer online.

The promo offers up a fresh look at Ben Whishaw's iconic bear, who journeys from the jungles of Peru to London's Paddington Station on an epic adventure.

Skyfall star Whishaw stepped in to replace Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington after the King's Speech star "consciously uncoupled" from the part.

Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Michael Gambon, Imelda Staunton and Nicole Kidman all feature in the supporting cast for the picture.

Paul King is directing the film based on Michael Bond's illustrated story books.

The X Factor: What did the judges say on Movie Week?

25 October 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Week Three saw The X Factor contestants perform famous songs from the long and glorious history of the movies.

Digital Spy rounds up what Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Mel B and Louis Walsh had to say about Saturday night's (October 25) acts - and if you missed the show, you can catch up with all the performances below, too:

1. Jake Quickenden: 'She's Like The Wind' by Patrick Swayze (from Dirty Dancing)

Louis: "You probably should have spent more time in the studio than the gym."

Simon: "If you do last another week, and I think that's unlikely after that, you need to get better at singing. I'm disappointed for you."

2. Only The Young: 'Boom Clap' by Charli Xcx (from The Fault In Our Stars)

Mel B: "I really really like that song. I thought you did a great job. I would have liked to have heard a few more harmonies, »

The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death - Scary New Us Trailer

24 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hammer has released an official U.S. trailer for their new horror film The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. This latest trailer is a lot different than the U.K. one we posted a couple of days ago. It's got a good amount of new footage, and I personally think that it's a better and scarier trailer. 

This is a sequel to the Daniel Radcliffe movie, The Woman in Black, but he's not joining us for the sequel. This next chapter in the story features a new group of characters, and the cast includes Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall), and Phoebe Fox (Switch). The creepy ghost story is set in 1941 in the same haunted house as the first film. In the story "two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location. »

X Factor 2014: Movies week - original versions playlist

24 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

After the debacle of last week's "1980s" hits, The X Factor is playing a little closer to the rules for Movies Week.

According to the song list from our friends at ITV, all of these songs have been in the films. And they're more or less right.

We still inevitably have a few quibbles. Yes, it's on the soundtrack, but why opt for the Demi Lovato version of 'Let It Go' from Frozen's closing credits, rather than the proper Idina Menzel take from the film itself?

If you're going to attribute 'Try A Little Tenderness' to Otis Redding, then choose John Hughes classic Pretty in Pink as your movie, where Duckie famously lip-synched to the radical soul reworking of Jimmy Campbell, Reg Connelly and Harry M Woods's jazzy standard.

On The Commitments, it was the cast themselves who implored us to squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave her. »

The X Factor: Week 3's Movie Night song choices revealed

And The X Factor title goes to...

Nope, we've not got that far yet. Still another couple of months to go - but Saturday night is Movie Night on ITV's primetime reality TV juggernaut.

So dust off your gladrags, order in the popcorn and stop trying to work out which member of Stereo Kicks is which for a moment - because tomorrow night's song choices are in. There's power ballads aplenty, so expect more key changes than a Westlife album.

Which young hopeful will be hoping to meet the challenge of his rivals, who wants you to 'Listen' to them and which soloist has the unenviable task of singing a track originally performed by four artists? Find out below...

The new Bond movies are "impossibly obscure", says John Cleese

23 October 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The man who was Q, John Cleese, reckons that money has ruined the James Bond series...

John Cleese has form in the James Bond movies. He ascended to the role of Q in Die Another Day, and was originally expected to return to the part. However, Pierce Brosnan departed the world of Bond, the reboot came in, Daniel Craig got the role, and things went back to the start for Bond. Only now has Ben Whishaw been introduced as the new Q.

In a new interview to promote his autobiography, Cleese was asked what he thought of Whishaw's take on Q. But as it turns out, he's not seen it. Cleese said that he didn't watch Skyfall "because I have criticisms of the new Bond movies".

He continued, telling Shortlist that "two things went wrong: the plots became so impossibly obscure that even professional writers couldn’t figure out what »

'Transformers' sound mixers reveal how they kept your ears from caving in

23 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Greg. P Russell and Scott Millan are masters of an art that can be difficult to appreciate. Great sound mixers take essential tracks — dialogue, score, and effects, all crafted and fighting for ear space — and meld them together to match, or enhance, the visuals on screen. In a film like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” the balancing act is like a Philippe Petit tightrope walk, one rogue robo-braam tipping the controlled chaos soundscape into cacophony. In a new installment of Variety’s Artisans series, senior VP Tim Grey talks to Russell and Millan about the fourth “Transformers” and Michael Bay’s increasingly difficult audio challenge. “As Michael would testify, sound is 50 percent of his films,” says Russell in the video. A 16-time Oscar-nominated sound mixer, Russell has fit each of Bay’s “Transformers” films between work like “Skyfall” and “Alice in Wonderland.” “Age of Extinction” marked Millan’s first brush with Optimus Prime. »

Creepy New Trailer for The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death

22 October 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We have a new full trailer for Hammer's upcoming haunted house horror film, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death for you to check out. The movie features a whole new cast that includes Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall), and Phoebe Fox (Switch). It also tells a new story that is set in the same creepy haunted house from the first film that starred Daniel Radcliffe. The trailer has a nice and scary tone, and this sequel looks like it's going to be a great horror flick. Like the first film, this one seems like a supernatural thriller that is going to mess with your head. I love watching horror films like this that have the old-school feel, where they don't rely heavily on special effects and blood to scare audiences. Here's a description of the story:

Watch Out Behind You, It's a New 'Woman in Black 2' Trailer

22 October 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We've had a couple teaser trailers for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, but today comes the first full trailer for the upcoming UK release while I have to assume the first domestic trailer will arrive sometimes this week as well if not later today as it will probably show in front of Ouija this weekend. Set for release on January 2, 2015, The Woman in Black 2 is the sequel to the 2012 release which starred Daniel Radcliffe, who isn't returning for this one. Instead it will be Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall) and Phoebe Fox (Switch) leading the charge in the 1941-set story, beginning as London is in the midst of the blitz, and two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening »

Enid Blyton's The Magic Faraway Tree heading to the movies

22 October 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sam Mendes' production company has snapped up the film rights to Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree books...

So this is going to be interested. Enid Blyton's four terrific Magic Faraway Tree books have been snapped up for a trip to the movies. The film rights to them have been acquired by Neal Street Productions, the company owned by Skyfall and American Beauty director Sam Mendes.

At this stage, it's just an option that's been taken, but it seems clear that Neal Street Productions wants to get the Magic Faraway Tree on the big screen. We wouldn't be British, of course, if we didn't question whether character names such as Moon Face and Fanny will make the translation. Saucepan Man and Silky the Fairy are on safer ground, we'd wager.

It's still early stages for the project, and there's no writer or direct attached that we know of right now. »

A Whale of a Poster for 'In the Heart of the Sea'

People seemed to go pretty ga-ga for the In the Heart of the Sea trailer that premiered last week. The new film from Ron Howard stars Chris Hemsworth and tells the story of a whaling ship and the real-life maritime disaster that would inspire Herman Melville's "Moby Dick" and after just one trailer it would seem a lot of you are already in the bag, well, how does this new poster satisfy youc In the Heart of the Sea co-stars Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight Rises) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) and is set to hit theaters on March 15, 2015. I've included both the trailer and poster below. sb id="1058859" height="360" width="640" In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.
