A brooding bunch of Brit baddies: the new Jaguar advert

'Strong utilised the persuasive power of a red-hot poker in The Long Firm, before moving with the times by using a giant microwave in Kick-Ass'

Crime doesn't pay. As Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Baron Greenback will attest, you can have all the hidden lairs, ruthless henchmen and tanks full of piranhas in the world, but you'll get your comeuppance in the end. Still, as Jaguar seems to be claiming, at least you can drive a shiny moll-magnet while working your nefarious schemes. As sales pitches go, having Ben Kingsley, Mark Strong and Tom Hiddleston sing the praises of British supervillains and their expensive motors makes a change from the usual mix of soft tops, soft rock and soft porn. But would you buy a flash car from these men? Strong utilised the persuasive power of a red-hot poker in The Long Firm, »

Denzel Washington stands tall in first 'Equalizer' poster

17 April 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Take heed, evildoers -- here comes "The Equalizer." Denzel Washington casts a long shadow in the simple, classy first poster for the upcoming thriller based on the 1980s TV series of the same name.  Reuniting with his "Training Day" director Antoine Fuqua, Washington plays a former intelligence officer who turns to vigilantism after growing frustrated with corrupt law enforcement. When he lends his expert aid to a teen prostitute ("Kick-Ass' star Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself facing down the Russian mob. Check out the poster here: "The Equalizer" is based on the CBS series which starred Edward Woodward and ran from 1985 to 1989. It also had a kick-ass theme song. The new version also stars Marton Csokas, Melissa LeoRobert Wahlberg and Haley Bennett. "The Equalizer" opens September 26. »

Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer Nabs a Poster

16 April 2014 7:42 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Denzel Washington is a bad man in director Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer.” It’s a good thing, then, that there are even badder people in need of having their asses kicked, because that’s exactly what Washington’s character will be doing lots of in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the ’80s TV series of the same name. In the flick, Denzel plays “a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri, and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.” “Kick-Ass’s” Chloe Moretz will play Teri, the girl in need of saving. Which is amusing given that, well, Moretz played Hit-Girl in the “Kick-Ass” movies, and I don’t think anyone is going to confuse Hit-Girl with someone who needs saving. Anyways, the film co-stars Marton Csokas, Bill Pullman, »

Mark Millar’s ‘Superior’ Becoming A Movie

16 April 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Superior, the comic book series that came from the mind of Mark Millar- the man that gave us Kick-Ass and Wanted- is going to be getting the big screen treatment. Hollywood has seen that adapting Millar’s work has paid off in the past, and now 20th Century Fox has chosen Superior to be the next Millar property to make the jump.

The Hollywood Reporter describes Superior like this:

The comic centers on a popular and athletic 12-year-old boy who loses his social life when he is stricken by multiple sclerosis. One night, an alien monkey grants the boy one wish and he chooses to become his favorite superhero, a Superman-like character named Superior.

After relishing his new life as a hero, the boy discovers that the monkey is actually a demon from Hell and he must sell his soul if he is to remain the powerful hero »

Chloe Moretz leaves her body behind in 'If I Stay' trailer

16 April 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After playing social outcasts in "Kick-Ass," "Let Me In" and "Carrie," Chloe Grace Moretz is finally playing a normal teen in "If I Stay." At least, the new trailer for the film starts out that way. Moretz plays a promising young cellist who seems to have it all --  a shot at Julliard, a nice family ("World War Z's" Mireille Enos plays her mom), and a handsome rocker bf played by Jamie Blackley ("Snow White and the Huntsman"). Things take a tragic turn when a car crash sends her into a coma, and triggers an out-of-body experience where she experiences the world from the outside looking in.  Powered by Moretz' perpetually sad-looking face -- and the inclusion of "Say Something" by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera -- the trailer offers the sort of romantic melancholia found in Nicholas Sparks movies, but with a subtly-played supernatural edge.  The »

Should Chloe Grace Moretz Go the Ya Route? Too Late!

16 April 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Rising starlet (or, in this case, “starlette” might be more appropriate – like a little tiny star, just beginning to shine) Chloe Grace Moretz hasn’t always made the most traditional of choices in her film career, though that’s not to say they’ve been bad choices. Yet the next segment of Mortez’s career, one that is now set to include starring in a multi-film Ya adaptation about a girl in some terrible futuristic settings and situations, looks to be going in a direction that’s not just traditional – it’s expected – and that’s not necessarily a good thing. Moretz certainly started off in an expected enough way, as her younger years were spent with small appearances on television shows and a series of horror films (including The Amityville Horror and Wicked Little Things), before turning her charms on for something a little offbeat. Moretz co-starred as the sassy younger sister in (500) Days of Summer »

Matthew Vaughn to Produce Mark Millar’s ‘Superior’ Comic Book Movie

16 April 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Although comic book writer Mark Millar has contributed many times to long-running series about more traditional superheroes like The Fantastic Four and Ultimate X-Men, he’s probably better known by mainstream audiences for putting a spin on the traditional comic book movie in Kick-Ass, the adaptation of his graphic novel about an average teenage boy who one day decides to put on a costume and become a superhero.

Another well-known limited series from Millar is Superior, a seven-issue comic about a 12 year-old boy with multiple sclerosis who is offered one wish by an alien monkey, and opts to take on the form of a superhero that he idolizes. He then finds out that the alien monkey was ...

Chloe Grace Moretz Breaks Our Hearts In Two In The First If I Stay Trailer

16 April 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When we think of Chloe Grace Moretz, we think of a sassy kid with a biting wit, and often a gift for violence as seen in Kick-Ass, Let Me In and Dark Shadows. But Moretz is offering a different side, a more tender side, in the trailer for her new drama If I Stay. Based on the lauded novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay has Moretz playing 17-year-old Mia, who is faced with a major decision. After a brutal car crash kills her parents, Mia is in a coma, but fully aware of the friends and remaining family that come to visit her hospital bed. But is their love enough to convince her to stay in a world filled with such grief? Sharing the screen with Moretz for this film are Mireille Enos, Liana Liberato, Jakob Davies, Jamie Blackley, Joshua Leonard and Aisha Hinds. R.J. Cutler, who has »
