We get the chance to interview famous people every now and them. We ask them their favourite Statham movie. Here's what happens...
With The Statham heading back to UK cinemas this week with Homefront, we finally got the chance to ask the man himself the question we've been asking lots of people for years: 'what's your favourite Jason Statham movie?'
Now that he's answered it, we've gathered together lots of the responses we've had in one document. And so here it is:
Evan Goldberg: "It was him in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, right? That’s the best one."
Alice Lowe: "I've never seen any of his films. »
Interview Simon Brew 29 Nov 2013 - 06:03
Out now on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK is the final part of the Cornetto trilogy, The World's End. We spoke to Simon Pegg about the film earlier in the way, but we've since also sat down with its director and co-writer, Edgar Wright. And here's how the chat went...
The interesting thing about the response to The World's End, and I've seen this with Hot Fuzz to an extent too, is that the second reaction to the film tends to be different to the first. That the first watch is quite a broad one, but the second uncovers what's under the surface. Themes such as lonliness, and the destructiveness of Gary.
So how closely do you follow that? Does the first reaction bother you per se, »
To mark the release of Homefront out in UK cinemas 6th December, we’ve been given a rather fantastic Jason Statham movie bundle to give away! As well as Statham, Homefront stars James Franco, Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth na di you’ve not seen the trailer for the movie you can watch it embedded below.
Homefront stars Jason Statham as former drug enforcement agent, Phil Broker, a family man who moves off the grid with his daughter, to a seemingly quiet bayou backwater to escape his troubled past. However, Broker’s world soon becomes anything but quiet once he discovers that an underbelly of drugs and violence riddles the small town. Soon, a sociopathic methamphetamine kingpin, Gator Bodine »
The world of porn and Hollywood have frequently intertwined over the last few decades - Deep Throat became a genuine crossover success, Boogie Nights took inspiration from the '70s' 'Golden Age of Porn' and adult stars have frequently crossed over into mainstream movies.
Digital Spy takes a look at 9 porn stars who went "legit"...
The Los Angeles-born actor gained porn prominence for his boy next door looks and prolific output. Before long he'd shot to the attention of American Psycho's Bret Easton Ellis, who championed him for the role of Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey before casting him opposite Lindsay Lohan in his own movie The Canyons.

Caroline sits down for a chat with the writers and directors of apocalyptic comedy This Is The End
Please note: there's a spoiler for Fast & Furious 6 in the second to last question.
After working together on some of the most celebrated and iconic comedies of the last decade, comedy giants Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are taking the leap into directing on apocalyptic meta comedy This is the End. Based on their short, Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse, the film focuses on six of their friends – who just happen to be A-list comedy stars themselves - as they try to survive a full-scale apocalypse from James Franco’s house in L.A.

For a small yet significant number of people, Joss Whedon isn’t just a writer, director and sometime performer of the Dance of Joy, he’s – what was it Quentin Travers said about Glory in the Checkpoint cliff-hanger? – “a god”.
As such, staring directly into his face was problematic. For fifteen minutes in a room in Soho this February, the struggle between my desire to appear professional, worldly and urbane, and urge to leap into Whedon’s lap sobbing ‘You made the horror of being a teenage girl okay’ was fierce. Angel’s battle between good and evil? A picnic compared to having to compose myself, sit nicely, and ask Joss Whedon sensible, grown-up questions about Shakespeare.
Professional and urbane then. Did I manage it? Er, no. But »

Hot off the successes of Crank and Crank: High Voltage, the frenetic, hyperactive commentaries on brutal, ultra-violent video games like Grand Theft Auto, the directing and writing team of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor tackled the social implications gaming with a much more blunt touch in their follow-up film Gamer. In the case of Gamer, Neveldine and Taylor were a little late to the conversation and had little new to say that films like The Running Man and Battle Royale hadn't already said with more panache and heart. Like the avatars it depicted, Gamer was an empty shell that moved predictably to the typical themes of escapism through violence, deniability of responsibility, and the potential evils of indulging too much in technology. Four years after the initial Blu-ray release and with the intent of capitalizing on the current 3D craze, Lionsgate has re-released Gamer with post-conversion 3D as a spectacle »

At age 31, Cinematographer Brandon Trost is still considered a youngster in a racket that consists mostly of older men with flowing gray hair and/or unkempt artistic temperaments.
With over 70 titles on IMDb, the young cinematographer has paid more than his share of dues, working on gonzo film sets with gonzo talent (Crank: High Voltage, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance). On each film, or at least once he climbed out of the indie trenches with the Crank sequel, Trost has added his own distinctive look to each film he has touched, regardless of the quality of source material. With the upcoming Townies and This Is the End, Trost is quickly becoming the go-to guy in Hollywood for cream of the crop talent in multiple genres, forging lasting friendships with directors and actors alike. One of the more fruitful relationships he’s forged is with writer/director Rob Zombie, a dream »

Discussion of Jawbreaker (1999) seems near impossible without some reference to Heathers (1988). The two films sit together along with their peers Carrie (1975), Mean Girls (2004), Clueless (1995) and others, in the film-genre high school lunch room. Jawbreaker holds only a critical 7% and audience 52% on rotten tomatoes to Heathers’ critical 95% and audience 81%. It would seem that, in the words of their lunch-mate Mean Girls “people are saying [Jawbreaker] is a less hot version of [Heathers].” Critics often lambast the ’99 comedy for ripping too directly from its ’88 counterpart, for being less intelligent, less humorous and unoriginal. But what are these types of comparative criticisms of these films appealing to? While the two certainly hold similar subjects there is a clear distinction in style and intention. Where Heathers discusses the structure of society Jawbreaker focuses on the spectacle that hides the sour intentions.

This Friday, Jules Stewart's edgy and challenging directorial debut K-11 arrives in limited theaters courtesy of Breaking Glass Pictures. Featuring an eclectic cast of characters, the indie prison-centric thriller is a bold introduction from the seasoned script supervisor.
Through the years Stewart has overseen over 80 projects throughout her 30+ years in Hollywood.
Considering that K-11 is by far one of the most blisteringly raw debuts we've seen in some time, we knew we'd have a ton of questions for Stewart when we recently caught up with her on the phone. During our interview, we spoke to Stewart about working outside 'the system,' her thoughts on what attracted her to co-writer Jared Kurt's original story that's based on a real portion of the La County Jail system, the challenges of managing 46 distinct characters and personalities inside one location while shooting K-11 and much more.

Since making his feature film debut in the 1985 flick Runaway Train, Tommy "Tiny" Lister has worked on over 160 projects, quickly becoming one of the most recognizable character actors of modern cinema.
This Friday, March 8th, Lister's latest film, K-11, will be arriving at limited theaters nationwide. Helmed by first-time director Jules Stewart (Crank: High Voltage, XXX), K-11 also stars Goran Visnjic ("ER," The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Kate del Castillo ("Weeds"), D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge, Fire in the Sky), Jason Mewes (Clerks I & II) and Portia Doubleday (the upcoming Carrie) and follows what happens inside a troubled portion of a Los Angeles correctional facility reserved for the homosexual and transgender inmates. In the film Lister plays Detroit, and while it's certainly not the first time we've ever seen the seasoned actor as a convict, it's perhaps his most nuanced performance to date.
