Film Review: ‘Gringo’

Film Review: ‘Gringo’
It’s a good thing Joel Edgerton and Charlize Theron are such likable actors to watch on screen, because the characters they play in “Gringo” are downright despicable. That’s the point in this nasty piece of work, which interrupts its darkly comic, south-of-the-border satire — rendered in the outrageous, ultra-colorful style of such Elmore Leonard adaptations as “Get Shorty” and “Jackie Brown” — long enough to ask the provocative question whether Mexico might do better building a wall that keeps Americans out.

As directed by brother Nash Edgerton (helming his second feature, after 2008’s “The Square”), Joel plays Richard Rusk, the sleazy co-founder of a Chicago-based pharmaceutical company called Promethium, first seen zipping up his pants following a mid-afternoon tryst with insatiable colleague Elaine (Theron, clearly relishing the part’s vampy potential). Richard and Elaine are running a scheme that involves mass-producing a chill pill called Cannabax at a facility in Mexico,

‘Seven Seconds’: Clare-Hope Ashitey on a Potential Season 2 and Getting Inspiration From Paul Newman
The 2018 version of Paul Newman in “The Verdict” may be Clare-Hope Ashitey in the new Netlfix drama “Seven Seconds.” At the very least, it was an inspiration for director Gavin O’Connor (“Warrior”), who told the show’s star to watch the 1982 film in preparation for her role as Kj Harper. “It was interesting to look at a film that was about a flawed person and how they dealt with a situation,” she told IndieWire during a recent press event.

In the dense Netflix crime drama created by “The Killing’s” Veena Sud, the character of Kj definitely has no shortage of flaws as a prosecutor whose determination to get justice for a black teenager is held back by her struggles with alcoholism as well as the chaos that is the American legal system. It’s a complicated character that demands a complicated depiction: “If you are watching a fairy tale,

Chinese Blockbuster ‘Wolf Warrior 2’ Impacts Careers, Especially Star Celina Jade

Chinese Blockbuster ‘Wolf Warrior 2’ Impacts Careers, Especially Star Celina Jade
Record-breaking Chinese action film “Wolf Warrior 2” has changed the course of many company and individual careers — none more so than of its female lead Celina Jade, who turns out to be the film’s biggest champion.

While director Wu Jing’s 2015 “Wolf Warrior” was a big hit, making 545 million yuan ($82.4 million), little was expected of the sequel that was released in July 2017. The war/action film genre has been over-exploited in China, and the retread had little word of mouth.

While “WW2” benefited from a release date at the beginning of the summer blackout period in which only Chinese-language pictures can get a wide release, it was going head to head against Andrew Lau’s “The Founding of an Army.” “Army” is the third in a series of big-budget, new era Chinese propaganda movies that employ dozens of stars and get the full backing of the government machine.

Yet “WW2” was a phenomenon from the moment

Margot Robbie Is Planning Her Own Separate Harley Quinn Movie

Given the relatively lackluster reception, both critically and commercially to Justice League so far, the future of the Dceu is very uncertain. But one thing is for sure: It's going to involve Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn one way or another. It's just been revealed that, in addition to the already revealed spin-offs, the actress is also working on a solo Harley Quinn movie. Here's what she had to say about it.

"I've been working on it for two years now. It's hard to kind of talk about it because all this stuff is under lock and key, but no I've been working on a separate spinoff Harley thing for a while now... [Not Sirens], it's a totally separate one. Yeah, there's a lot going on right now and I honestly don't think anyone knows what's gonna be the next thing to happen, but I think everyone's keen to get Harley back

Suicide Squad Director Wishes Joker Was the Main Villain

Suicide Squad Director Wishes Joker Was the Main Villain
More than a year later and people still can't get over what could have been with Suicide Squad. Not even director David Ayer. While he's moved on to other projects and, in all likelihood, won't be making another DC movie again (at least not in the near future), he's still willing to talk to fans about Suicide Squad and get candid about its shortcomings. Like not making The Joker the main villain of the movie.

Recently, a fan shared an image of a toy that features Jared Jeto's Joker in a Batsuit on Twitter. According to Ayer, the toy was inspired by a pickup shot that was never used in a cut of the movie. In the reply to the tweet, a fan made it clear that The Joker should have been the main villain in Suicide Squad and, as it turns out, David Ayer agrees to the point that he agonizes over it.

Nick Nolte Reflects on What Acting’s Meant for Him Ahead of Walk of Fame Honor

Nick Nolte Reflects on What Acting’s Meant for Him Ahead of Walk of Fame Honor
Nick Nolte lives in a treehouse in Malibu. It’s an actual house. In a tree. A tree runs through the bedroom. He built it on the property he owns, a rustic 2.5-acre lot on which there are several small houses and an organic fruit and vegetable garden and dogs and cats running around. And every morning the first thing Nolte does when he wakes up is reach out and put his hand on the tree. And he feels the tree’s pulse. And he says to himself, “This is so cool. It’s alive.”

Nolte, who is receiving a star Nov. 20 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, bought the property, within faint earshot of the Pacific Ocean, about 40 years ago, 10 years after he moved to L.A. to become a star. The semi-remote location (Kevin Dillon is a neighbor) is something that Nolte relishes; the fresh smell of dirt and grass, the cool shade

Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam Will Reportedly Show Up in Suicide Squad 2

According to The Wrap, Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam will make his big screen debut in Suicide Squad 2. That's not the movie that I would have expected him to show up in, but that news comes from two inside sources. The report says:

The insiders told TheWrap that the current plan for the sequel is for the members of Suicide Squad to be tasked with tracking down a weapon of mass destruction. That weapon? Black Adam himself. The villain is best known in DC Comics as the main nemesis of superhero Shazam.

That would certainly make for a fun and interesting story for the Suicide Squad! We know that Black Adam was not going to be a part of the Shazam! movie, but Johnson previously teased that there was going to be a big Black Adam surprise. He told Fandango:

“We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal,

Warner Bros.' upcoming Dceu sequel Suicide Squad 2 is getting on the right track, with director Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) coming aboard to take the helm, and today we have word that the sequel may be planning quite the big surprise. A new report claims that the sequel will serve as the Dceu introduction for Dwayne Johnson's long-awaited character Black Adam, who was originally supposed to star in the Shazam! movie before that project was reworked and Black Adam was given his own stand-alone adventure. This report also claims that production won't begin until October 2018, to accommodate The Rock's busy schedule.

The Rock already has two film projects lined up to shoot next year, Disney's Jungle Cruise movie and his controversial Fast & Furious spin-off that is in the works with Jason Statham, along with a possible fifth season of HBO's Ballers as well. Still, insiders state that Dwayne Johnson

Lionsgate Launches India Office, Appoints Rohit Jain as MD
Lionsgate has set up an office in Mumbai while announcing the appointment of Rohit Jain as MD for India.

The move builds on the company’s growing plans in the country, which included a 2015 Bollywood remake of the Tom Hardy-starrer Warrior, titled Brothers, with top actor Akshay Kumar in the lead role.

“If you can imagine Warrior with an erotic, booze-soaked dance number and double the love scenes, then you'll be able to wrap your head around the Indian version of the film,” said THR in its review, which also praised Brothers for adding local tweaks to the original.

What May Have Caused the Las Vegas Shooter to Kill? An Expert’s Analysis
Nearly two weeks later, investigators have yet to announce a potential motive behind the Las Vegas massacre, which killed 58 concertgoers and left hundreds more wounded. It may never be known what drove Stephen Paddock to shoot innocent people enjoying a country music festival from 32 stories up. But criminal profiler John Kelly tells People he believes Paddock was born a killer.

“What would drive somebody that is so methodical and structured in life to go insane in a very structured and methodical way?” Kelly, who acknowledges he never met the shooter, wonders. “Paddock was a pathological gambler, psychopath and a sociopath.

‘Wheelman’ Trailer: Frank Grillo Gets An Adrenaline Rush

You might not realize it, but Frank Grillo is kind of a huge deal. Well, certainly in China, where he’s the co-star of “Wolf Warrior 2,” the fifth highest grossing film of the year globally, earning $870 million. And that’s mostly in part due to China’s box office. That’s pretty crazy, and although the actor’s time might be about to arrive, he’s keeping it lean and mean for his next film.

Gavin O’Connor to write and direct Suicide Squad 2

It seems Warner Bros. and DC’s search for a director to Suicide Squad 2 may be over. Deadline has reported that the studio has chosen Warrior and The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor to write and direct the supervillain sequel.

He will write the script with Anthony Tambakis. There’s no word on when the pair will begin development, but it probably won’t be for a while. O’Connor is currently attached to direct a sequel to The Accountant with Ben Affleck for WB, so presumably Suicide Squad 2 will come after.

Other directors WB previously looked at include Mel Gibson and Jaume Collet-Serra. While original Suicide Squad writer and director David Ayer is not returning, he will be moving onto Gotham City Sirens, led by Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

Suicide Squad went on to earn WB over $745 million worldwide, despite a mixed reception from critics. Other films WB
