Jean Dujardin in Crime Thriller 'The Connection' or 'La French' Trailer

26 August 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Whoa - this looks cool! Oscar winner Jean Dujardin stars in what might be best described as a "reboot" of The French Connection, titled just The Connection in America, but known as La French back in France. Set in Marseille, the same place as French Connection, the film tells an action-heavy story about a French police magistrate who spends six years trying to take down one of the country's most powerful drug rings. Sound familiar? At least it doesn't look so bad, seriously. I like the music choices, I like the intense action, it doesn't look too cheesy or comical. I'm interested - what about you? No subtitles included but none needed. Here's the first trailer for Cédric Jimenez's The Connection, or La French, on YouTube (via SlashFilm): From the Tiff 2014 guide: "Academy Award-winning actor Jean Dujardin (The Artist, The Wolf of Wall Street) stars in this high-octane »

Jean Dujardin Takes On The Connection In New Trailer

26 August 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Artist star Jean Dujardin did have a career before his Oscar-winning turn as a silent film star fallen upon hard times, and his post-Oscar triumphs have been nothing to sneeze at. He appeared briefly but memorably in Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, and then again in The Monuments Men. He’s also been hard at work in his native France, and will next be seen in Cedric Jimenez’s true-story crime thriller The Connection, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Connection has Dujardin in the role of Pierre Michel, a young magistrate recently transferred to Marseilles.

Tiff Trailer: Jean Dujardin Goes After Drug Dealers In 'The Connection'

26 August 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are few films about the battle between Johnny Law and drug dealers that can measure up to "The French Connection," so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. That seems to be Cédric Jimenez's operating principle, as his forthcoming "The Connection" is a Euro flavored take on William Friedkin's classic. The movie is headed to the Toronto International Film Festival for its world premiere, and the first international teaser trailer is here. Jean Dujardin ("The Artist"), Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette and Benoît Magimel star in the action thriller, which looks pretty confidently put together. Here's the official synopsis: Newly transferred to the bustling port city of Marseille to assist with a crackdown on organized crime, energetic young magistrate Pierre Michel (Dujardin) is given a rapid-fire tutorial on the ins and outs of an out-of-control drug trade. Pierre's wildly ambitious mission is to take on the French »

Which former Oscar winners were nominated for 2014 Emmys?

10 July 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning was like Christmas for TV and Emmy fanatics, and among the nominees this year, as usual, were a slew of former Oscar winners. In the acting categories this year, it was no surprise to see Matthew McConaughey chalked up for his work in HBO's "True Detective" just four months after completing a near run of the movie awards season table that culminated in a Best Actor Oscar win for "Dallas Buyers Club." Will HBO's decision to put the show in the drama series category rather than miniseries hold him back from an Emmy, given the potential bounty of goodwill for Bryan Cranston and the final season of "Breaking Bad?" We'll soon find out. Joining McConaughey in the category was "Usual Suspects" and "American Beauty" star Kevin Spacey, nominated a second-straight year for Netflix's "House of Cards. In the supporting actor ranks, Jon Voight, Oscar winner for 1978's "Coming Home, »
