The technological fast action thriller, Paranoia comes to us from the director of….errr…Legally Blonde? There’s nothing off the table now in Hollywood. Gone are the days when directors were auteurs, steadfast to upholding their authority over work. There’s a definite shifting in the ranks as filmmakers are swapping genres and even languages to carve out new niches. You can scope out a taster of that with the latest trailer for Paranoia.
One such director is Robert Luketic, who also brought us Monster-In-Law, The Ugly Truth and Killers….hang on, surely this cannot be the same director. No, a double check confirms that it is. Fair play to him for finally getting a stab at a meatier topic. From the sounds of the premise and the look of this trailer, it plays like a technologically-enhanced male version of Working Girl.

The unholy bastard child of a low budget after school drama and the limpest, most derivative romantic comedy imaginable, Crazy Kind of Love attempts to exist as both a frothy coming of age story and a more sombre drama, and it completely fails at both. So little feels genuine that it begs the question if those involved are in actuality idiot savants and have crafted one of the most subtle parodies of all time.
The most genuine compliment I can pay to this wreck is that everything at play is mostly harmless, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s not still insulting to the viewer. If the on-the-nose musical cues and the atrociously contrived meet-cute between our young leads aren’t enough to drive you stir crazy early on, Crazy Kind of Love will soon use up its third, fourth and umpteenth strike as it continues to show absolutely »

Gerard Butler hits rock bottom – even after the execrable The Ugly Truth – as a Scottish former footballer who is divorced from his soppy wife (Jessica Biel) and longs to connect with his son. So he agrees to coach his child's soccer (it's set in small-town USA) team, whereupon a legion of mothers (Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones) hit on the smirking lunk. Quite possibly the worst film of the decade thus far. »
Exclusive: Wme has signed the screenwriting team of Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah, whose breakout came off the spec 10 Things I Hate About You and whose other credits include Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth, The House Bunny and She’s The Man.

Katherine Heigl hasn't always been her own best advocate. A lead role in Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" is mostly remembered by the fallout that came when she complained about the supposed sexist elements of the hit film. Then there's the saga with "Gray's Anatomy," with the actress battling with the creatives on the show and even withdrawing her name from Emmy contention one year because she didn't feel the material was up to snuff. While one could scoff at the irony of someone who went on star in movies like "27 Dresses" and "The Ugly Truth," Heigl had the last laugh because they were hits. And then suddenly, her choices were no longer so sound. "Killers," "One For The Money" and "The Big Wedding" were all bombs, with the Apatow-clone "Life As We Know It" as the lone outlier, a modest hit that you still probably forgot existed. So perhaps »

Veteran actor and all around badass Clive Owen (Sin City, Children Of Men) is set to co-star opposite Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, The Ugly Truth) in Survivor for director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta, The Raven).
The film follows a State Department employee (Heigl) working at the American Embassy in London who loses her team in a bombing attack. After she is framed for a series of crimes for which she is innocent, she embarks on a desperate journey to clear her name and prevent an attack on New Year’s Eve. Production company Nu Image will present the film to prospective financiers at the Cannes Film Festival. Legendary producer/director Irwin Winkler (Rocky, Goodfellas) will produce the project.
Something about the pairing of Clive Owen and Katherine Heigl is very bothersome to me. In her relatively short career, Heigl’s reputation as something of an unappreciative and arrogant diva precedes her. »

The White House is destroyed, the President is captured, and only one man can save him. That man is John Patterson. Hang on, that's not right …
I was on an Antoine Fuqua set once, The Replacement Killers, to meet Chow Yun-Fat, a delightful man. Even then, in the late 90s, back when it looked as if Hong Kong cinema might yet save the American action movie, I knew in my bones that Antoine Fuqua (whom I didn't meet) surely wasn't the man to import Chow Yun-Fat or the Hong Kong action aesthetic to Hollywood. Well, a lot I know. John Woo has been to Hollywood and done his thing and long since gone home, and Fuqua continues, against logic or reason or merit, to thrive. The man who gave us Bait, Shooter and King Arthur – mongrel dogs one and all – is often associated with the Oscar that Denzel Washington won for Training Day but, »

Los Angeles, April 10: Scottish actor Gerard Butler says his fans wish he does more action films, but he admits he enjoys working in all types of movies.
"More people tend to say, 'Why the **** don't you stop doing love stories? If I see you in another love story I'm going to put a knife through your brain,'" femalefirst.co.uk quoted Butler as saying.
"I have done a few romantic comedies until they're coming out of my ****. But I really enjoy making them. I really enjoy making all types of movies," he added.
In his latest movie, "Olympus Has Fallen",. »

The year's first White House movie ahead of early estimates, but is it a bona fide box-office hit? Olympus Has Fallen, featuring Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart (neither of whom has been terribly lucky at the domestic box office of late), will be this March 22-24 weekend's no. 2 movie, behind only the 3D animated feature The Croods and easily surpassing early predictions. Antoine Fuqua, probably best known for Ethan Hawke / Denzel Washington's Training Day (which earned Washington a Best Actor Academy Award), directed the R-rated thriller should earn around $28 million on its debut weekend -- it opened with $10.4 million at 3,098 sites this past Friday as per studio estimates found on the web site Box Office Mojo -- thus boasting this year's second highest R-rated debut and providing relatively new distributing company FilmDistrict with its most impressive opening weekend to date. Early predictions by various pundits had the year's "first »

Our selected star to be included in our “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week Photo Gallery” is Gerard Butler. Gerard James Butler (born 13 November 1969) is a Scottish actor who has appeared on film, stage, and television. A trained lawyer, Butler turned to acting in the mid-1990s with small roles in productions such as the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), which he followed with steady work on television, most notably in the American miniseries Attila (2001). In 2003, he played André Marek in the adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Timeline. He garnered critical acclaim for his work as the lead in Joel Schumacher’s 2004 film adaptation of the musical The Phantom of the Opera. In 2007, Butler gained recognition through his portrayal of King Leonidas in the film 300. Since then, he has appeared in projects including P.S.

All around Hollywood, the movie industry’s best and brightest are preparing for the year’s biggest awards bonanza — a starry, starry night of designer dresses, well-deserved wins, and touching acceptance speeches.
But as exciting as the Independent Spirit Awards may be, they can’t hold a candle to the Golden Raspberry Awards. Since 1980, this off-brand ceremony has rewarded the best in bad film, giving cinematic trainwrecks like Mommie Dearest, Howard the Duck, Showgirls, and Battlefield Earth the dishonor they deserve. The films in contention this year may not be quite as terrible as those that have won in years »

It's a Herculean task: how to make Gerard Butler acceptable in a romcom. How about if it's disguised as a save-the-prez thriller?
Gerard Butler has a romcom problem. Whenever he tries to make a romantic comedy – which he does with alarming regularity – it always ends up stinking. Perhaps it's because he's always typecast as the lovable douchebag. Take The Bounty Hunter, for example, where he kidnapped women for a living. Or The Ugly Truth, where he essentially allowed a child to use a sex toy on Katherine Heigl. No romcom is sweet enough to make Gerard Butler seem in any way likable, it seems.
But perhaps his new film will change this. It's called Olympus Has Fallen and, while that title makes it seem more like a lunkheaded action movie than a romantic comedy, I'm convinced that it represents Butler's big shot at romcom redemption. The Olympus Has Fallen trailer went online last week, »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: March 5, 2013

The romantic comedy movie follows Butler as former soccer star George who has fallen on hard times. In an effort to get his life together, George returns home and starts coaching his son’s (Noah Lomax, TV’s The Walking Dead) soccer team, hoping it will help him build a relationship with his son and ex-wife (Biel).
But the film scored lower than Butler’s other romantic comedies in theaters. Playing for Keeps grossed $12.9 million, but 2010′s The Bounty Hunter took in $67 million and 2009′s The Ugly Truth earned $88.9 million. »
A much longer look at what's in store for "Grimm" fans during the second half of the show's sophomore season (which includes a pretty great recap as well) has come in along with TV Guide's list of five things we should know before the series returns with Episode 2.13 on March 18th.
1. Rosalee is back: When actress Bree Turner gave birth to her son last fall, her character, Rosalee, took a break from the spice shop to take care of a sick aunt. "My aunt is fine now. She's healed up," Turner said.
2. The captain unmasked: Isn't it enough that Nick (David Giuntoli) found out that Renard (Sasha Roiz) was romancing his girl, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch)? Our hero will also learn about the captain's royal background. "It's going to be a powder keg," Roiz told critics at "Grimm"'s winter TV previews on Sunday. Giuntoli added that in the "big, angry kerfuffle. »

Gerard Butler's filmography is a strange one. Action movies and thrillers like 300, Law Abiding Citizen, and Gamer sit oddly alongside romantic comedy such as P.S. I Love You, The Bounty Hunter, and The Ugly Truth. Personally, I think he is strong leading man, with a great presence, but I prefer him him when he firing off guns with abandon, or shouting the name of the place he's currently in. Which makes the fact that I really enjoyed Playing For Keeps, his latest journey down the romantic comedy route, all the more puzzling. Butler plays George Dryer, a former professional football (soccer, for those of you in America) player who has fallen on hard times. Unemployed, trying to have a meaningful relationship with his son (Noah Lomax), and dealing with the fact that his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) is getting remarried, his life takes a turn for the better when he »
