Thor’s Jaimie Alexander Gets in a Murderous Jam at the Intersection

Somehow “Thor” and “The Last Stand” star Jaimie Alexander ended up in France shooting an action movie called “Intersection”, the trailer for which you can check out below. The film, which appears to be partially in English, finds Alexander playing one half of a freshly married couple who are on their honeymoon in Morocco, when they get into a deadly car accident in the middle of the desert, then guys with guns show up and shenanigans ensue. An earlier synopsis for the film actually spoils a pretty big plot point of the movie, but in case you were interested in tracking this movie down after spying the trailer below, I’m going to let you find out what happens by yourself and be surprised. You’re welcome. The film’s French trailer is below. There are enough English that you can understand what’s happening, but it would definitely help if you could read French,

  • ShadowAndAct
French-Moroccan actor Roschdy Zem (he's starred in a few films directed by French-Algerian filmmaker Rachid Bouchareb, like Outside The Law, a film covered on this site in the past), stars in this Luc Besson-produced actioner set in the Sahara desert, titled Intersection.

'Warrior' Star Frank Grillo Joins The Cast Of Kathryn Bigelow's Bin Laden Movie

  • The Playlist
At this point, we're beginning to suspect that in order to cast her still-untitled film about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden, Kathryn Bigelow incepted us, found out all our favorite actors and actresses, and put them in her movie. First, she cast Australian actor Jason Clarke from "Brotherhood," and "Parks & Recreation" scene stealer Chris Pratt. Then came rising star Joel Edgerton, of "Warrior" not-quite-fame, along with "Carlos" star Edgar Ramirez, 'Tinker Tailor' stand out Mark Strong, and The Playlist's Woman of the Year 2011, Jessica Chastain. And after that? The always-wonderful Jennifer Ehle, and Coach Taylor himself, "Friday Night Lights" and "Super 8" star Kyle Chandler, along with Harold Perrineau Jr, Nash Edgerton and Fares Fares.

But despite filming having been underway for months, it seems that Bigelow isn't quite done hitting our sweet spot, as Variety reports that Frank Grillo, who co-starred with Edgerton in "Warrior," and was

End Of Watch Trailer Spares No Ammo

End of Watch, which isn’t hitting until September 28th, is an interesting, and somewhat strange choice for Jake Gyllenhaal. At least, it seems that way to me. A gritty, police-centric action-drama, the film follows two cops who piss off the wrong people, and find themselves on a drug cartel’s hit list.

The trailer shows some potential, but it’s hard to tell how well this one is going to go over, especially considering the camera stylings this one is going with, which some may find too gimmicky by now. Whatever you may think, you aren’t likely to see many trailers that go through more rounds of ammunition. Take a look and let me know what you think.

End Of Watch stars Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.

Casting Call: Tom Felton Joins Elizabeth Olsen in Therese Raquin; Jaimie Alexander Lands Female Lead in Thriller Intersection

  • Collider.com
We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share with you today. First up, Harry Potter star Tom Felton set to join the cast of Therese Raquin. Based on the 19th century novel and play by Emile Zola, the dark thriller revolves around young Therese (Elizabeth Olsen) in 1867 Paris, whose aunt, Madame Raquin (Glenn Close), is forcing her into an arranged marriage with her rich, but sickly, first cousin. As Therese soon becomes obsessed with Laurent, a friend of her husband, a devastating affair ensues with a very heavy price. Deadline reports that Felton is in talks to play Therese’s sickly cousin whom she marries. Theater director Charlie Stratton is set to helm, and the dramatic role is a nice get for Felton. It’s a wise decision, as the “sickly cousin” plays against the nefarious type that Felton is surely wary of being typecast as. Additionally, Thor
