'Homeland' - 'The Vest': It's not easy seein' green

11 December 2011 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Homeland" coming up just as soon as I write a 45-page manifesto declaring that I've reinvented music... "You understand!" -Carrie Though Henry Bromell didn't write this episode of "Homeland" (the script was by Meredith Stiehm and Chip Johannessen), it carried the show's strongest "Rubicon" overtones yet. "The Vest" was all about the thin line between madness and the dedication required to be a great intelligence analyst, and it spent a lot of time showing an all-American Muslim terrorist preparing to say goodbye to the life he knew before sacrificing it for the greater cause. Now, "Homeland" has »

'The Grey' Trailer: Liam Neeson Fights Nature, Wolves in Alaskan Wilderness Adventure

2 December 2011 12:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News

Liam Neeson has disposed of his fair share of enemies over the last five years, but perhaps none more vicious than the twosome of foes he faces in 'The Grey': Mother Nature and a pack of vicious wolves. Neeson reunites with his 'A-Team' director Joe Carnahan for the new action drama, which focuses on a group of Alaskan pipeline workers who survive a deadly plane crash -- only to wind up stranded in the wilderness during the dead of winter. Can Neeson and his team -- played by Frank Grillo ('Warrior'), Dermot Mulroney, Dallas Roberts ('Rubicon') and James Badge Dale ('Shame') among others -- survive long enough to fend off the wolves and the plummeting temperatures? As long as Neeson can construct glass-shard knuckles out of minibar bottles of alcohol, probably!

James Bond Film Skyfall Nabs 'The Hour' Star Ben Whishaw

James Bond Film Skyfall Nabs 'The Hour' Star Ben Whishaw

It always brings a warm feeling to my heart when a television star makes the leap into a highly-publicized film. That's the case with actor Ben Whishaw, whose biggest role to date has arguably been the lead role of the BBC drama The Hour. Whishaw, who has a "sizeable female following" according to The Hollywood Reporter, has been cast as Q in next year's James Bond film Skyfall.

In my review of The Hour, I described Whishaw as "a blend of James Badge Dale (Rubicon) with Matt Smith (Doctor Who)." While I haven't seen him in anything outside The Hour, his performance still sticks out to me as a series highlight -- I'm already looking forward to the show's announced second series because of his great performance as the investigative journalist Freddie Lyon.

‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ Narrows Down Search for John McClane Jr. to Four Actors

4 November 2011 5:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Ever since it was revealed that the fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise, A Good Day to Die Hard, would include one new major character in the form of John McClane's son, rumors have been circulating about who might be up for the gig. Now a new report has surfaced claiming that the studio and director John Moore are getting closer to casting the role. They've apparently narrowed down their options to just four actors: Aaron Paul, James Badge Dale, D.J. Cotrona, and (because no casting search is complete without him, apparently) Liam Hemsworth. More details after the jump. The news comes courtesy of Deadline [2], who notes that Fox has not commented on the story. As we recently learned [3], A Good Day to Die Hard will see John McClane (Bruce Willis) trekking to Moscow to convince some cops to let his "apparently wayward" son John McClane Jr., out of prison. »

Casting Bits: Melissa Leo and James Badge Dale in Talks for ‘Flight’, Kylie Minogue Joins ‘Holly Motors’, ‘Footloose’ Star Rumored for ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake

3 October 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Robert Zemeckis is collecting quite a cast for Flight, his return to live-action filmmaking. Oscar winner Melissa Leo and Rubicon star James Badge Dale are the latest additions to the project, which stars Denzel Washington as an alcoholic, drug-addicted pilot who becomes a public hero when he rescues a troubled flight. However, his own issues may have contributed to the flight's problems to begin with. Bruce Greenwood and John Goodman [2] are also set to appear, while Don Cheadle [3], Brian Geraghty [4] and Kelly Reilly [5] are in negotiations to board the project as well. Leo would play the role of an investigator who believes the pilot is guilty of negligence, and wants to expose the truth about him. Dale is negotiating to play a dying cancer patient. [The Hollywood Reporter [6]] After the jump, Kylie Minogue makes a movie with Juliette Binoche and Footloose remake star Kenny Wormald may be up for another '80s classic. »

The Grey Trailer Starring Liam Neeson

22 September 2011 7:43 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

The wild success of Taken continues to dictate the direction of Liam Neeson's career as he steps into another action role with The Grey. This time around he is reteaming with The A-Team director Joe Carnahan for an original story that finds him crash landing in the Alaskan wilderness with a team of oil drillers and struggling to survive. However, it's not just the elements that they have to worry about... they are also being hunted by a pack of hungry wolves. Yikes. While normally I'm a fan of man vs. nature stories, the one thing that has me a little bit worried in this trailer is the CG wolves. If they're going to be such an important part of the film, I think you really need to make them as convincing as possible, otherwise the movie will just fall apart. The cast also includes Dallas Roberts (Rubicon), James Badge Dale »

Tiff 2011: Steve McQueen’s ‘Shame’ takes aim at modern manhood

9 September 2011 5:35 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Shame

Written by Abi Morgan and Steve McQueen

Directed by Steve McQueen

UK, 2011

It seems almost paradoxical that there appear to be so few films that successfully probe into the life of the contemporary male. That is to say: the great majority of filmmakers are male; male actors topline most movies; most successful screenwriters are male. Yet there is a distinct shortfall in the number of movies that directly tackle the question of manhood in the new century. Steve McQueen’s stunning follow-up to Hunger, which reunites him with that film’s star, Michael Fassbender, exploits what seems at first to be a straightforward – if unconventional – story of addiction in the ultimate service of exploring just what it is to be a man.

Brandon (Fassbender) is, by all possible metrics afforded by men’s magazines and popular culture, an exemplary creature. He’s tall, striking, handsomely framed, wealthy (and steadily employed), lives in New York, »

Telluride 2011, Day 4: ‘Shame’, ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’, Tilda, and the future of film history

7 September 2011 11:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Telluride 2011, Day 4

Tilda Swinton is the ideal Telluride guest. She’s just famous enough to provide the fest with a bit of an exclusive sheen, but she has more than enough credibility as an artist to suit the fest’s reputation of catering to people who are serious about film. At the public tribute and Q&A that accompanied the screening of We Need to Talk About Kevin, another good reason for her selection emerged: the line of questioning trended towards both the film festivals she has been organizing back in Scotland, and her sense of family. The Telluride fest crew often give the impression of being one hyper-extended global family connected by their love of film and their belief in it as a sacred place to gather in and around – and of the town of Telluride itself as an ideal vessel for that love.

That feeling was only reinforced »

Check Out The Undead Of 'World War Z'

19 August 2011 11:53 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's not too often that you see a bunch of corpses with hooks right through their heads in a PG-13 feature, but come late 2012, you will have in when 'World War Z' hits theaters. After all, boundaries are being pushed these days, and with an estimated budget of $125 million -- making it the most expensive zombie film of all time -- the upcoming film doesn't need an R rating turning away some of those dreaded theater dwellers known as "teenagers."Thanks to a loyal reader of Ain't It Cool News, posted below are a couple of photos of some artificial zombies who were just camping out in the back of a truck on the set of the film in Glasgow, Scotland. You know there are going to be a lot of zombies in a film when they have fake ones being used as background pieces. Glasgow was standing »

Watch Action On The 'World War Z' Set Live

18 August 2011 12:15 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The big-budget zombie production, 'World War Z' is currently filming in Glasgow, Scotland. Like 'The Avengers' is transforming a portion of the city of Cleveland into New York City, 'World War Z' is transforming Glasgow into Philadelphia. On Cam Vista, there is a live stream of the action on set via one of the cameras of the city. It gives you a really good angle of what's going on. If you happen to come across this story too late, and the film is no longer shooting, don't lose your mind. Actor, Brad Pitt stars in the film as Gerry Lane, a representative of the United Nations who begins writing up a large report on a war between the humans and the undead dubbed the "Great Zombie War." He embarks on a journey to interview several people about their harrowing ordeals during the war that brought the human race to its knees. »

Review: BBC America's The Hour Is Mad Men Meets Rubicon

12 August 2011 11:17 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The Hour is the show you would get if you put Mad Men and Rubicon in a martini shaker and gave them a good blending. The series, which premieres Wednesday, August 17 on BBC America, is equal parts office period drama and conspiracy thriller, centering upon the creation of a new current affairs show on the BBC in June 1956. There are lots of men in suits with slicked-down hair, but there's also a strange conspiracy subplot that seems rather disconnected from the rest of the series, despite the presence of the main character in both storylines.

That main character is Freddie Lyon, played wonderfully by Ben Whishaw (Layer Cake). He's really a blend of James Badge Dale with Matt Smith; he's a frizzy-haired sleuth with a sharp wit and unpredictable antics. Don't be mistaken by Dominic West's prominence in promotional material; the show's pilot really centers on Freddie, with West's »

TV Review: True Blood 4.6 – “I Wish I Was The Moon”

12 August 2011 7:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

It’s Full Moon – and we know that’s the time when all the freaks come out … So how can we expect Full Moon in Bon Temps to be anything other than the night when it all kicks off.

Firstly, you’ll recall that the crumbling remains of Pam grassed Eric up, just as he was snuggling up to Snookie. I’ve lost track of just how many days and nights he’s been doing his puppy routine now, enough, it seems, for Sook to have gone from ‘get out of my house’ to ‘get into my knickers’.  And stylish skimpies they are too! She and Eric are about to enjoin in a little coitus when Bill inevitably arrives to interruptus. Not a scenario that is likely to improve his gradually worsening demeanour.

She does live dangerously, that Sookie. I can’t see how this is »

Brad Pitt fights 'World War Z' for Christmas 2012

10 August 2011 12:38 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

If you've always wanted a zombie apocalypse for Christmas, 2012 will be your year.

Paramount has set a Dec. 21, 2012 release date for "World War Z," Deadline reports. The film, based on Max Brooks' novel (subtitled "An Oral History of the Zombie War"), stars Brad Pitt as a United Nations worker who travels around the globe collecting stories of those who survived a worldwide zombie pandemic.

The film, which Pitt is also producing, co-stars Mireille Enos ("The Killing") and James Badge Dale ("Rubicon"); Marc Forster ("Quantum of Solace," "Stranger Than Fiction") is directing it.

"World War Z" will face quite a bit of competition on the pre-Christmas weekend next year, Deadline notes. The first "Hobbit" movie is set to open the week before that, while "The Lone Ranger" (starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer), literary adaptation "Life of Pi" and the submarine thriller "Hunter Killer" are all set to debut on Dec. »

Bryan Cranston Off To Fight World War Z

7 August 2011 9:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since the Us government passed the Bryan Cranston Employment Act a few months ago, it has been decided that not a week must pass without news of the talented thesp getting another gig. So now, a short time after we were disappointed to learn that scheduling conflicts would keep him out of crime drama The Gangster Squad, there’s word that he’s scored a “small but flashy” role in zombie conflict epic World War Z. The Hollywood Reporter has it that Cranston is on board the film in an unspecified part, which will find him appearing alongside Brad Pitt.And besides the fact that he’s brilliant and deserves every job he gets, there might just be another reason that director Marc Forster has nabbed Cranston. World War Z has taken talent from three of Us TV network AMC’s shows, with Mireille Enos (The Killing) and James Badge Dale (Rubicon) already aboard. »
