Following the first trailer from May and an action-packed preview released last week, Warner Bros. has debuted the second full trailer for their Point Break remake, arriving in theaters Christmas Day. Edgar Ramirez stars as the enigmatic Bodhi, who leads a group of thieves that have a far different agenda than most criminals. Luke Bracey plays FBI agent Johnny Utah, who infiltrates Bodhi's group and learns about their path to enlightenment.
You may recall that the first Point Break poster revealed a group of skydivers watching a huge pallet full of money plummet to the ground. We get to see how this scene unfolds in the new footage, which reveals that Bodhi and his crew need to "give more than they take," as he dumps millions of dollars on an unsuspecting village. In addition to the trailer, we also have even more posters which showcase some of the extreme sports in the remake. »
Ever since the Point Break remake was announced, we learned that this new version of Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 classic will still feature Johnny Utah and Bodhi, only this time the story will be set within the world of extreme sports, not just surfing. The first poster released back in May featured a skydiver chasing after a huge pile of money, but today, Warner Bros. released a new one-sheet that brings the remake back to its roots, showcasing the new Utah (Luke Bracey) and Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) riding a massive wave. The original poster came just one day before the first trailer arrived, so that could mean the second trailer is just around the corner.
In the fast-paced, high-adrenaline Point Break, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes - led by the charismatic Bodhi (Édgar Ramírez). The athletes are suspected of »
Jessica Biel definitely has that new mommy glow. The actress made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth four months ago to her and Justin Timberlake's son Silas last night in Santa Monica. She was on hand at RonRobinson to celebrate the latest collection of Bare, the eco-accessories line she helped launch about two years ago with her brother Justin Biel and designer Grason Ratowsky. The Total Recall star stunned with her hair up in a bun and wearing an embroidered black and blue culottes ensemble that showed off her gorgeous bod. In her first post-baby interview, she talked exclusively to E! News at the fashion event. I asked her what's been the most magical thing »
Colin Farrell’s a great actor, but he’s kind of box-office poison.
Just look at this track record.
Total Recall? Bombed.
Fright Night? Nobody bothered.
Dead Man Down? Yup, I don’t really remember that either.
In fact, aside from his hysterical supporting turn in 2011’s Horrible Bosses, S.W.A.T was the actor’s last legitimate hit. That came out in 2003. Granted, since Miami Vice 9 years ago, he’s not been making particularly commercial choices, but for a man still considered an A-lister that reads pretty alarmingly.
Well that’s likely to change with the news he’s been cast in Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Directed by David Yates and written by original novelist J.K Rowling, Farrell has landed a major role alongside Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice).
Farrell will play Graves, a wizarding accomplice of Redmayne’s protagonist, »

Giovanni Ribisi stars as a conman in deep with a family of bounty hunters in this Amazon pilot, which also features an appearance by the Breaking Bad star. But will that be enough to claim those all-important user ratings?
Spoiler alert: this blog contains details from the pilot episode of Sneaky Pete, which is available to view free on Amazon Prime Instant Video
In Breaking Bad, he was the one who knocks. Then, with his armful of best actor Emmys and a last-gasp Golden Globe, Bryan Cranston knocked TV on the head, cashing in on the sustained critical hoopla surrounding Bb’s lopped-in-half final season to rack up some movie roles. He was a sporadic goodie in the sporadically good Godzilla update, and a roaring baddie in the roaringly bad Total Recall reboot.

Opinions are (rightfully) divided when they come to "True Detective"'s second season, but almost everyone should agree Colin Farrell is doing some fine work. It's far from his best character, and all too often he's reduced to glum dialogue and sullen character traits. But he brings a fine gravitas, if you will, to the character and often makes even his worst lines have a dignity or weight behind them. It's a welcomed presence and, in a world defined by what they deserve, he's owed a better due. So, hopefully, with his next role, he'll get a better rep. Farrell is the latest to join the extensive cast of Warner Bros' Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. He joins the J.K. Rowling-scripted feature as Graves, a New York wizard our lead Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) meets during a visit. The impending film takes place 70 years »

Fox’s upcoming adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic series Lucifer has gone through a bit of a casting shuffle. According to Deadline, the show has lost actor Nicholas Gonzalez, who will be replaced by True Blood and Arrow alum Kevin Alejandro.
The role is that of a gruff homicide detective for the Lapd, who grows wary of the eponymous former Underworld ruler’s burgeoning relationship with his wife and daughter.
More News From The Web
No reason for Gonzalez’s exit was given, and it sounds like his part in the pilot will remain intact despite the role swap. That means there’s going to be a slight bit of confusion for viewers when the show debuts next midseason. Still, Alejandro should be a fine replacement, so I’m excited to see what he does with the role.

Spike is taking film screenwriter Kurt Wimmer into the world of TV. The scribe behind “Salt,” 2012’s “Total Recall” and the upcoming remake of “Point Break” will team up with the network for scripted series “When the Levee Breaks,” Spike announced on Tuesday. In “When the Levee Breaks,” an illegal strike by the Lapd threatens chaos in Los Angeles. An African-American cop, the series’ central character, is the only officer with the courage to cross the picket line to investigate the true motivations behind the murders of the two racist cops whose deaths provoked the strike — and whose murders he himself may. »

Spoiler alert: Interview reveals certain details about the film The Lobster. While Hollywood has piled on a number of reboots on Colin Farrell’s lap (read Fright Night and Total Recall) the Irish actor continues to revolutionize his craft by playing against his swaggering type in such smart titles as Seven Psychopaths, In Bruges and Ondine. In Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster, Farrell portrays a sensitive, single guy, David, adrift in the middle-age relationship world. He… »
Revealed at Las Vegas' CinemaCon are release date changes for upcoming films of the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy varieties, as Universal has pushed back the releases of Pacific Rim 2, The Mummy, and Warcraft. Sony and Screen Gems also recently made a change of their own by slightly bumping up the theatrical debut of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Initially scheduled to come out on February 19th, 2016, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is now slated to hit theaters a few weeks earlier on February 5th, 2016.
In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

The remake nobody asked for is coming this Christmas with Point Break, a new approach to the 1991 action thriller of the same name that was directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. The film has become an action classic, but that's not stopping Hollywood from trying to cash in on its legacy with a new version starring Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil) and Luke Bracey (The November Man). Now the first photos have been unveiled after some footage was shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, and at least now we know that Ramirez surfs and Bracey runs. That's exciting, right? Here's our first look at Ericson Core's remake of Point Break from Warner Bros. Pictures: Point Break is directed by Ericson Core (Invincible), who is also the director of photography on the film written by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Street Kings, Total Recall). A young FBI agent, »

A contemplative film pondering the nature of the difference between reality and fiction, one with resonance beyond the true-crime story it’s kinda sorta about. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Michael Winterbottom’s movies
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Let’s be perfectly clear: The Face of an Angel is most definitely not the story of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, who was killed in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, or the story of her roommate, American student Amanda Knox, who was tried and convicted of the crime along with her then boyfriend. (And then they were acquitted on appeal.)
Well, it is that story. But it isn’t, either. It’s both and neither at the same time.

Fox has committed to more outings of its mystery-adventure series Sleepy Hollow, as today the network announced that the show has been granted a season 3 renewal. The third season has been earmarked for 18 episodes which are set to further explore Ichabod Crane’s relationship with Lieutenant Abbie Mills. It will also mark the introduction of new showrunner Clifton Campbell.
Campbell, creator of The Glades, takes over the position from Mark Groffman. The former showrunner is thought to have exited due to poor ratings during its second season, which saw a staggering 40% drop following a promising debut season.
With a fresh set of eyes serving the tale of Crane and his cohorts, Fox’s President of Entertainment David Madden is confident that the show will continue to break the mould:
‘Sleepy Hollow’ is truly inventive television. The talented producers -led by Alex, Bob, Len and Heather- along with the brilliant cast, »

According to THR, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt (who played Copperhead on Gotham) will replace Lina Esco as Maze on Fox's Lucifer pilot. This character was first introduced in the pages of Neil Gaiman's Sandman as Lucifer's right hand woman, who eventually follows him to Earth. She's described as "a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman" on the show. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with the character getting his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals. Tom Ellis will »
According to Deadline, D.B. Woodside, Rachael Harris, and Nicholas Gonzalez have landed series regular roles in Fox’s comic book drama pilot, Lucifer. Woodside will play Amenadiel, "an angel sent to Los Angeles to persuade Lucifer to return to Hell." Harris has been cast as Linda, "a therapist Lucifer initially encounters when working with Chloe to solve a case", and Gonzalez is Dan, "a gruff Lapd homicide detective, who is wary of Lucifer’s involvement with his wife and daughter." The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman.

When Empire met Bryan Cranston a few years ago on the Total Recall set, he was pleased to explain the importance of the right hair for a character. On the occasion of the sci-fi remake he was rocking a sort of luxuriant, floppy grey-blonde affair, whereas in his most famous role in Breaking Bad he has no hair at all. "A shaved head and facial hair is the most aggressive look you can have," he expained, fixing us with a beady stare. So have a look at his latest piece of head furniture in Brad Fuller's '80s-set thriller The Infiltrator and tell us what you think he's going for here...Adapted by Ellen Brown Furman from customs and excise agent Robert Mazur’s autobiography, the film finds Cranston as Mazur, who must investigate dodgy dealings by going undercover as a man named Bob Musella. There’s still no »
Before Tom Cruise decided to star in Knight & Day for James Mangold he was considering several projects. One was The Tourist, which Johnny Depp ultimately took, another was The Matarese Circle, which would have put him alongside Denzel Washington with David Cronenberg directing and the other was Motorcade, a thriller that was, at the time, to be directed by Len Wiseman, who instead went on to direct the Total Recall reboot. Looking at those options, it seems Cruise made the best choice for the time, but Motorcade never really died and Dreamworks is now ready to bring it back to life. It was just announced Joe Carnahan has been brought aboard to direct the thriller which pits the U.S. president against terrorists who commandeer his motorcade on the streets of Los Angeles and Carnahan is bringing along his Smokin' Aces star Ryan Reynolds to play a disgraced Secret Service »

As Fox's Lucifer adaptation drifts further and further away from its source material, Lauren German (Hostel: Part 2, The Divide) has joined the cast as Chloe Dancer. Deadline describe the character as an "Lapd homicide detective who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. As they work together to solve a murder, Lucifer is struck by Chloe’s inherent goodness. Used to dealing with the absolute worst of humanity, Lucifer begins to wonder if there’s hope yet." The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux.
