Last Days in the Desert: Ewan McGregor plays both Jesus and the Devil in Last Days in the Desert, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

Patrick Radden Keefe's New Yorker story "The Hunt for El Chapo" is a terrifying, bizarre, and occasionally funny look at modern drug trafficking. Delving into the lavish world of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, Keefe finds a quirky character pulling strings for a murderous bunch who love their Instagram. The DEA manhunt for Loera, that ended this past February, lasted a decade. The best kingpins can live a life of luxury and still avert paramilitary. Loera was the best of the best. Those are the types that get movies made about their lives. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Universal has picked up the rights to "El Chapo," for its "Lone Survivor" director Peter Berg to helm. After that gritty military war film earned more than franchise wannabe "Battleship," the studio is in a position to let Berg do whatever the heck he wants. He’ll »

The big screen take on The Six Million Dollar Man - which has been upgraded to The Six Billion Dollar Man - is pressing ahead, and it's now been revealed that Mark Wahlberg is set to take the title role.
Using the 1970s TV show as its inspiration, The Six Billion Dollar Man will see Wahlberg taking on the role of Steve Austin, a former astronaut who is seriously injured in a plane crash. Yet he's saved by doctors, who give him new bionic legs, a bionic arm, and a bionic eye. From there, he becomes an agent at the Office Of Scientific Intelligence.
The things you have to do to get a job.
While I wasn't the biggest fan of "Lone Survivor," I was impressed with the way they managed to turn it into a genuine hit. It's a pretty stark and brutal story, but Mark Wahlberg worked overtime to help sell the movie, and it's obvious that it came from a place of real passion for him. Peter Berg has such a strange filmography at this point that I've basically given up trying to guess what he'll do next. I always walk in hoping for him to put it all together as well as he does in films like "Friday Night Lights" or "The Rundown," because I think he's got the chops. I like that he's done some of everything at this point. Looking at how he shoots action in "Hancock," for example, or even in "Lone Survivor," he's got a sense for how to build a sequence. I just think he's »

Peter Berg and Taylor Kitsch have enlisted for another tour of duty in the latest commercial for Activision’s video game juggernaut Call of Duty. The duo, who previously collaborated on Battleship and Lone Survivor, are back in battle in this new commercial for the game. As expected, it’s jam-packed with action and spectacle as Kitsch’s character leads the new game’s protagonist through a series of harrowing fights in a futuristic Lagos designed to show off what players can expect when Advanced Warfare hits the local GameStop next week. Kitsch isn’t the only star featured in the new advertisement – Gone Girl’s Emily Ratajkowski also makes an appearance in one of the clip’s funnier moments. Activision has a “go...

Fox is putting some kinetic energy into a new Gambit movie, with Channing Tatum set to star as the card-slinging mutant, sources confirm to EW. The 21 Jump Street star has long been linked to the character, who has the power to imbue any object with a dose of explosive power. (His weapon of choice is a deck of playing cards.) He gave an interview to MTV stating, “Gambit’s the only X-Man I ever loved. He’s the most un-x-Man X-Man that’s ever been an X-Man … he loves women and drinkin’ and smokin’.” The actor and the character also »

It's in Apocalypse that we'll first get to see Gambit as played by Channing Tatum on the big screen. And that appearance is set to be a springboard for a Gambit standalone movie, that will reintroduce the character first played in the movies by Taylor Kitsch (in X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Fox is moving the Gambit standalone project forward too, and it's now hired a screenwriter to put a draft of the film together. The writer in question is Josh Zetumer, who co-penned the script for the RoboCop reboot that was released earlier this year.
Peter Berg and Taylor Kitsch have stuck by one another for years, beginning with Friday Night Lights and carrying through Battleship and last year’s Lone Survivor. Now they’ve teamed up for an entirely different sort of combat engagement. Kitsch stars in Berg’s first-person Call of Duty ad — a live-action affair that, like the game […]

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The 33-year-old Canadian actor first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. Most recently, he appeared in The Normal Heart, and he's rumored to be returning to the small screen with a buzzed-about role on True Detective. In any case, now seems like the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. Source: Entertainment Weekly »

It was directed by Peter Berg and stars Taylor Kitsch. The two have previously collaborated together on Lone Survivor, Battleship, and Friday Night Lights. It also stars Gone Girl's Emily Ratajkowski.
I've always been a huge fan of the Call of Duty franchise, and this next game looks incredible. After watching this action-packed commercial for it, though, now I just want to see Berg and Kitsch adapt it into a movie. This video is an adrenaline-fueled fun ride that does a spectacular job bringing the game to life. Here are some details on the game:

Kitsch said that was so elated to be involved with the series, in fact, that he had been turning down roles in anticipation of joining the other actors. »

Noteworthy: We’ve included the grosses for the Bollywood heist film Happy New Yea from our own sources as Rentrak did not report for it.
