Watch: Video Essay Breaks Down The Gina Carano vs. Michael Fassbender Fight In 'Haywire'

10 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Steven Soderbergh has been a busy man these past few years. In addition to directing every episode of one of T.V.’s most electrifying dramas, “The Knick” – which, if you are not watching, you absolutely should be – Mr. Soderbergh had quite the productive run from 2010 until now, churning out fine, challenging films like “Contagion,” his stripper melodrama “Magic Mike,” “Side Effects,” and his dazzling Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” with remarkable efficiency. Read More: Retrospective: The Films of Steven Soderbergh One film from this post-2010 run that I haven’t mentioned is “Haywire," a light, goofy, globetrotting action-adventure flick. “Haywire” isn’t Soderbergh’s best film by a long shot, but it’s still a fun, entertaining and well-made thriller that was unjustly lambasted by many critics. The movie also made a sort-of star out of former Mma fighter Gina Carano, who plays a black-ops specialist trained in kicking »

14 times similar movies went head to head at the box office

14 October 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Deep Impact Vs Armageddon is not the only time similar movies have landed around the same time...

Usually, a competing project is poison for a studio. Especially in the era now where a blockbuster costs the national budget of a small country to get out into the world, you don't want to be up against a film with similar subject matter.

Yet this keeps happening, time and time again. Even now, there are two live action Jungle Book movies in various stages of production, for example. And let us not forget when K-9 and Turner And Hooch once did battle...

But how have the movie showdowns of old turned out? And are there any instances where everyone's a winner?

Er, not many as it happens...

The Haunting Vs The House On Haunted Hill

Let's start with two reasonably budgeted horror films, that both got wide releases. Jan De Bont »

Matt Damon Says His Whitey Bulger Movie Would've Been "Anti-Gangster"; Only Signed Up For 'Bourne 5' For Now

1 October 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Aside from his small role in Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," it has been quite a few years since Matt Damon had a big blockbuster hit at the multiplex. You'd probably have to go back to 2011's "Contagion," which even by the standards of smash hits, was fairly modest. But this weekend he arrives in theaters with Ridley Scott's big piece of sci-fi spectacle, "The Martian," and the actor will follow it up next summer with his yet-to-be-titled fourth adventure as Jason Bourne. But he's playing it cautious with the series that cemented his bankability and proved he could be an action star.  "I don't want to take that for granted," Damon told THR about 'Bourne,' and on the possibility of doing more movies beyond the next one, he remains reserved. "I always just did one at a time. Even on the first one, they suggested me signing up for three, »

Watch Matt Damon Perform All of His Movies in 8 Minutes

30 September 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Late Late Show with James Corden has only been on the air for just over six months, but in that short amount of time, new host James Corden has given movie fans a new reason to tune in, aside from interviews with the biggest stars. The host has a running segment entitled Role Call, where his guests such as Tom Hanks and Arnold Schwarzenegger act out all of their biggest hits (and some of their flops) in a short amount of time. Last night, Matt Damon stopped by the late night program to promote his sci-fi drama The Martian, in theaters October 2, where he became the latest star to act out his entire film career in just eight short minutes.

With the help of some CGI backdrops, props and a string of bizarre costumes, Matt Damon and James Corden played out a number of rapid-fire scenes, starting with Good Will Hunting, »

Everest movie review: peak experience

14 September 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A spectacular, heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock. See it in IMAX 3D for an enrapturing you-are-there feeling. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is the kind of movie movies were invented for: big, visceral, and intense, a heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock as it takes you places most of us will never get to so as to engage in the sort of life-threatening thrills that, paradoxically, remind us that we are alive. That’s an argument that safety-minded homebodies like me scoff at when risk-takers make it, but Everest makes you understand it deep in your gut.

And this is true even though Everest is the story of what had been the deadliest climbing season on the mountain until the 2014 and 2015 avalanches. »

‘Into the Badlands': First Look at AMC’s Martial Arts Drama

11 June 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC has released the first photos for “Into the Badlands,” its upcoming saga that stars Daniel Wu as a well-trained warrior who embarks on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Accompanying him on his journey is a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight).

Into the Badlands” was created by writer-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “Smallville”) and is based on the classic Chinese story “Journey to the West.” It stands as another example of TV’s martial arts-focused drama trend.

“I think there’s a great variety of martial arts that you can call on,” Gough told Variety last year, adding, “Oftentimes, it’s a fight that comes down to two characters, and television has an intimacy that really lends itself to that.”

The six-episode series bows later this year. It is currently filming in New Orleans. Gough and Miller serve as executive producers »

Graham Moore and Marc Forster’s Outbreak Drama Gets Series Order at NBC

28 May 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The outbreak drama from writer-creator Graham Moore (the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind The Imitation Game) and director Marc Forster, formerly known as Patient Zero, has been given a full order at NBC. Per Deadline, series will run for 10 episodes, with Forster slated to direct most if not all of them and Moore set as lead writer for the entire series. Details are vague but the general focus of the series is on a deadly virus that infects a young woman and has the possibility of decimating populations all around the globe if not contained and cured correctly. That plot will interweave with an FBI agent's hunt for terrorist in international territories, the stress and horror of which pushes him to the edge of madness. [caption id="attachment_111662" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] The "deadly outbreak" storyline is a perennial thriller premise and it's one that could work very well on the small screen. »

The CW 2015-16 Schedule: Watch Trailers for Containment and Crazy Ex-girlfriend

14 May 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The upfronts have ceased! They are no more! This morning, The CW finished up the annual ballyhoo and announced their three premiering series for the 2015-2016 fall season, including the highly anticipated Legends of Tomorrow, continuing the channel's newfound reputation as the home for DC Comics characters; you can find the trailer for Legends of Tomorrow and Allison's write-up here. As much as a certain contingency of the television-viewing public would wish it so, however, television cannot only be about costumed white dudes saving the world. So, in addition to Legends of Tomorrow, The CW has also dropped the trailers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a new comedy series, and Containment, a new thriller-drama centered on the international outbreak of an unknown contagion. It's probably too much to ask that it's exactly like Steven Soderbergh's Contagion though, right? Gadnabbit. It's interesting to note that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has a similarly ambitious, bold tone to its comedy, »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »
