There are many things I’m still not over when it comes to the 2011 film Warrior. I’m still not over how freaking good Tom Hardy was. I’m still not over how it did not receive the amount of praise it deserved. I’m still not over the fact that there’s a large number of people who have no idea what film I’m talking about right now. But most of all, I’m still not over the ending of the film.
For those of you who haven’t seen it, I just checked, and it’s on Netflix, »

This is a new photo that has surfaced from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road featuring Tom Hardy in the title role. This is only the second image we've seen of Hardy in the role, the first can be found here. The movie has completed shooting and is now in the post-production phase. So this photo was probably taken awhile ago. Hardy does look pretty badass in the role, but let's be honest... it's going to be hard to fill the shoes of Mel Gibson. Gibson was so awesome in those original films.
The long awaited Mad Max sequel is set to be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015
"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on »

Briefly: Relativity has announced and confirmed a release date for the film Jane Got a Gun, an action-western directed by Gavin O'Connor starring Natalie Portman. The production has been troubled, with big delays and creative issues with the previous director, Lynne Ramsay. Actors walked off of set, everything was temporarily shut down, but eventually they got a crew together to finish and filming wrapped. Despite all the troubles, Relativity Media is still planning to release the film and has officially set an August 29th, 2014 late summer release next year (same day as horrors The Loft & Jessabelle). Synopsis: A woman asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him. Stay tuned for more. The film's main cast, under the direction of Gavin O'Connor (of Miracle, Warrior), includes: Ewan McGregor, Joel Edgerton, Rodrigo Santoro and Noah Emmerich. Originally this had Michael Fassbender, »

After the rather bland and boring Thor: The Dark World, Marvel have a bit of making up to do with their forthcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Thankfully, after witnessing the first trailer and extended footage over at San Diego Comic Con, Steve Rogers’ return is looking damn special. We’re still almost six months away from the film’s release and co-star Frank Grillo, while promoting action-thriller Homefront, has confirmed his villain Brock Rumlow (aka Crossbones) will also return in future Marvel adventures!
“It’s an origin film. You meet people who are going to be around for a while, so they introduce the characters. It’s almost like it’s a series. It’s fun. »

Actor Frank Grillo has been slowly making a name for himself, particularly with 2011's Warrior and The Grey and is next primed to become a household name with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where he'll play Brock Rumlow, who most comic enthusiasts know is the alias for the villain known as Crossbones. Although Grillo has yet to even say the name "Crossbones" in any press (that I've seen, anyway), the actor alludes that there is much more to »

Almost miraculously given its troubled production history, Natalie Portman's "Jane Got a Gun" has been given a release date. The Gavin O'Connor-directed western, which also stars Joel Edgerton, Ewan McGregor and Noah Emmericah, has been slated to hit theaters on August 29, 2014, it was announced today. O'Connor ("Warrior") came aboard the project at the last minute after original director Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") declined to show up for the first day of filming back in March. Early this month the film's producers (a group that includes Portman) filed a lawsuit against Ramsay which alleges, among other »

Fans waiting anxiously for the first Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer don’t have much longer to wait. The film’s official twitter account announced today that the world premiere unveiling of the trailer will take place on December 5. Aside from some footage that made the rounds after Comic Con earlier this year, all we’ve seen so far are still images from the upcoming sequel to Marc Webb’s reboot. Sony clearly has high hopes for the film- with a desire for more sequels and spin-offs- so we can expect a trailer that strives to please the masses.
Will it clarify what the tone of the film will be? Some fans are nervous, having sensed a Joel Schumacher Batman Forever vibe from some of what’s been seen so far. Will it clarify exactly which threats Spidey will be facing? Rumors have circulated about an ever-expanding roster of antagonists making appearances in the film. »

Action western Jane Got a Gun, starring Natalie Portman, has had so many casting and directing change-overs that one feared it would never hit the big screen. Michael Fassbender was originally attached to star as Jane’s ex-lover Dan Frost, but had to leave to film X-Men: Days of Future Past. Joel Edgerton was cast as another character but then replaced Fassbender. Director Lynne Ramsay then cast Jude Law as Edgerton’s replacement.
However, a week later, just as production was about to start, Ramsay left, as did Law and cinematographer Darius Khondji. Director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) replaced Ramsay and Bradley Cooper replaced Law early last spring. One month later, Cooper dropped out to finish American Hustle and Ewan McGregor came onto the project, the fourth actor to take the part of John Bishop.
Oh, and to make matters ever crazier, the film’s producers sued Ramsay, explaining that »

For cinephiles, the behind-the-scenes drama on the revisionist western Jane Got a Gun will overshadow the film until at least the first trailer. Natalie Portman stars as a woman who must call on an ex-lover to help defend her farm and injured outlaw husband from the husband's gang. Michael Fassbender was going to play the ex-lover and Joel Edgerton was to play the gang leader. Then Fassbender left because of a scheduling conflict, Edgerton moved to the ex-lover role, and Jude Law signed on to play the villain. Then matters got crazier when director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk about Kevin) unexpectedly dropped out on the first day of shooting, and the production scrambled for a replacement. They got Gavin O'Connor (Warrior), but then Law left because he wanted to work with Ramsay. Bradley Cooper came on to play the villain, then he left, and finally the production landed on Ewan McGregor. »

“Jane Got a Gun” has endured major cast and director shake-ups, but will finally ride into theaters on Aug. 29, 2014. The revisionist western stars Natalie Portman as a woman in the Old West who is tormented by the ultraviolent Bishop Boys outlaw gang and has to turn to her former fiancee (Joel Edgerton) for help. Ewan McGregor stars as the gang’s leader. Scheduling conflicts led to the departures of original stars Bradley Cooper, Jude Law and Michael Fassbender, while the project’s initial director Lynne Ramsay (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) was replaced by Gavin O’Connor (“Warrior”) after filming was slated. »

Director of Warrior Gavin O'Connor has signed up to direct the remake of French thriller Tell No One. Based on Guillame Canet's Ne Le Dis a Personne, the film centres on David Beck, a man who has rebuilt his life following his wife's murder. However, an email he receives hints towards his wife still being alive.
Previously attached to Tell No One was Ben Affleck who was rumoured to both star and direct, but O'Connor is a safe and credible choice whose career has flourished since Warrior, a film that genuinely surprised critics alike.
Next up for O'Connor is the much troubled Jane Got a Gun in which he took over from Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) who dropped out on the first day of filming. The film stars Natalie Portman (Thor: The Dark World), Ewan McGregor (The Impossible) and Warrior's Joel Edgerton. »

Over two years ago, before Argo became all the rage on the awards circuit, Ben Affleck was attached to Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures' co-produced remake of Harlan Coben's thriller Tell No One. Though the novel comes from an American novelist, the book actually first received the feature film treatment back in 2006 when French director Guillaume Canet took a crack at adapting the book. However, it won't be Affleck in the director's chair anymore as Variety reports Warrior director Gavin O'Connor (fresh off taking over the western Jane Got a Gun starring Natalie Portman), is now in talks to helm the adaptation. The story follows a doctor who was suspected of his wife's murder eight years ago and finds himself the suspect of murder again when two bodies are found near where his wife's body was found. However, the real twist comes when an e-mail arrives with a photo of his wife, »

‘Tell No One’ thriller to get Hollywood remake (photo: ‘Tell No One’ 2006, with François Cluzet and Marie-Josée Croze) Gavin O’Connor, among whose credits are Tumbleweeds, Warrior, and the upcoming Natalie Portman action drama Jane Got a Gun, "is in negotiations" to direct Universal and Warner Bros.’ thriller Tell No One, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Whether the film will be a direct remake of Guillaume Canet’s Ne le dis à personne (2006), starring François Cluzet and Marie-Josée Croze, or be based on the original source — Harlan Coben’s novel Tell No One — is unclear. Canet and Philippe Lefebvre were credited for the screenplay of the French movie. Frequent Steven Spielberg collaborator Frank Marshall (The Color Purple, War Horse, Jurassic World) is producing the new Tell No One. Academy Award winner Chris Terrio (Argo) will be writing the adaptation. Curiously, Argo director Ben Affleck had been previously attached to this »

It seems that "Warrior" and "Pride & Glory" director Gavin O'Connor is being a bit of a directorial hero these days. Earlier this year, he stepped into the fray of "Jane Got A Gun" after Lynne Ramsay's abrupt departure, and got the thing made. And now he's taking the helm of a long developing remake that recently lost Ben Affleck as its director. O'Connor has climbed aboard the remake/redo of the thriller "Tell No One." Based on the book by best-selling author Harlan Coben, and brought already to the big screen in Guillaume Canet's very well received 2008 adaptation, the story revolves around a doctor who, after is wife vanishes, is at first suspected of having murdered her, but then begins to receive clues that she may in fact still be alive. It's crackling stuff, and with a script by "Argo" writer Chris Terrio, we have no doubt the »

The story is based on a novel from Harlan Coben, and was made into a film in 2008 by Guillaume Canet. It centers on "a doctor who was a suspected of foul play when his wife disappeared and finds himself under scrutiny once again when two new bodies »

The long-gestating, troubled "Max Mad" reboot has finally gotten a release date: "Mad Max: Fury Road" will be released on May 15, 2015.
"Fury Road" is an apt title for the film, since the road to getting it made has been anything but smooth. Movies.com has a timeline of the movie's journey, and it's full of stops and starts and even more stops.
The project was first conceived way back in 2003 by the franchise's original director, George Miller, and went from getting a $100 million budget to being re-imagined as a 3D animated film to beginning production in Australia in 2011 then having to relocate to Africa due to heavy flooding interrupting the shoot. So yeah, it's been a wild ride.
But it seems that the production finally has a clear direction, and with a definite release date ahead, it seems like "Fury Road" will finally become a reality. Shooting started back in »

Warner Bros. has announced that George Miller's long-awaited sequel Mad Max: Fury Road will be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015. It's pretty incredible to see all of the films being released in 2015. It might just be the best year of movies ever.
Miller is done shooting the film and is currently in post-production. The director previously described the story of the movie as follows,
"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."
The movie stars Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky, Charlize Theron (Monster, Prometheus) as Imperator Furiosa; Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max, Sleeping Beauty) as Immortan Joe; and »

Frank Grillo (Captain America) is set to star in DirecTV’s original series Navy St., from Byron Balasco and Endemol Studios. Written on spec by Balasco, Navy St. is a gritty family drama set against the backdrop of Navy Street, a mixed martial arts (Mma) gym based in Venice, CA. Grillo, repped by CAA and Management 360, will play the gym’s owner, Alvey Henderson, a former fighter who never made it big due to a drug addiction but is now sober. Grillo has the perfect background for the role – in addition to his long acting career, he is a lifelong wrestler-turned-boxer-turned-mma-er who trained with Greg Jackson, one of the top Mma trainers in the world, for his role as the trainer in the 2011 Mma feature Warrior. Grillo and Warrior star Joel Edgerton bunked together at Jackson’s Mma gym in Albuquerque for four months while he was training. Rosemarie DeWitt »
