Stars: Orlando Bloom, Simon Yam, Lynn Hung, Xing Yu, Hannah Quinlivan, Thomas Price, Lei Wu, Jing Liang, Da Ying, Rong Chang, Lyon Zhang, Ruoxi Wang | Written by Kevin Bernhardt | Directed by Charles Martin

Hey everybody, its Britain’s sweetheart Orlando Bloom… You remember Orlando Bloom, the bow and arrow fella from The Lord of the Rings or the lovable simpleton boxer from The Calcium Kid. No?. I’m just Kidding! I know we all know who Orlando Bloom is but I can assure you we have not seen him like this before.

An ultra badass..!

That’s right Orlando Bloom has completely reinvented himself as a punchy, kicky, ready for business, bonafide action star! Sure we have seen him firing arrows or swinging swords but The Shanghai Job sees him swinging fists and sweeping legs in director Charles Martin’s (Skins, Marcella) debut feature, set in the stunning locales of Shanghai.

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

Get Out Easily Wins the Weekend Box Office with $30.5M

Get Out Easily Wins the Weekend Box Office with $30.5M
While the animated spin-off The Lego Batman Movie has had no trouble winning in its first two box office weekends, it was largely expected to cede its box office crown to Get Out this weekend. While Get Out did take the top spot this weekend, it did so with a larger total than expected, earning an impressive $30.5 million in its opening weekend. What's even more impressive is that total represents more than six times its meager budget of $4.5 million. The winner for the last two weekends, The Lego Batman Movie, dropped to second place with $19 million, which was just a 41.8% drop from last weekend, while the other two new releases, Collide and Rock Dog, failed to even crack the top 10.

None of this weekend's new releases had anywhere near the type of wide release of The Lego Batman Movie, which is currently playing in 4,088 theaters. Box Office Mojo reports that Get Out debuted in 2,781 theaters,

‘Get Out’ Star Daniel Kaluuya Joins Viola Davis in Steve McQueen Heist Movie ‘Widows’

‘Get Out’ Star Daniel Kaluuya Joins Viola Davis in Steve McQueen Heist Movie ‘Widows’
Daniel Kaluuya, the star of Jordan Peele’s “Get Out,” has joined the cast of Steve McQueen’s heist movie “Widows,” opposite Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, and Cynthia Erivo.

McQueen is directing from a script he’s co-writing with “Gone Girl” screenwriter and novelist Gillian Flynn. Emile Sherman and Iain Canning of See-Saw Films, which produced “Lion,” are producing along with McQueen. Film4 is co-financing.

“Widows” is based on the 1983 British mini-series about a caper terribly gone wrong. The story follows four armed robbers who are killed in a failed heist attempt, leaving their widows to finish the job.

Canning and Sherman teamed with McQueen on “Shame,” and also produced the best picture Oscar winner “The King’s Speech.” The movie marks McQueen’s first feature since he won the best picture Academy Award for “12 Years a Slave” in 2014.

Get Out” has been over-performing at the box office

Movie Review: The car-chase thriller Collide runs on fumes

Collide stars Nicholas Hoult as an American car thief and ex-drug dealer who gets involved in a cockamamie German cocaine heist in order to pay for a kidney transplant for his girlfriend (Felicity Jones) and ends up on the wrong side of a psycho trafficker (Anthony Hopkins) in a powder-blue suit. That’s more melodrama than the film needs, because Collide (titled Autobahn outside the States) has been put on this Earth for one purpose: solid, wholesome car-on-road, car-on-car action. Its English director, Eran Creevy (Welcome To The Punch), handles this with due competence—screeching tires, growling engines, grips tightening on steering wheels, and windshields shattering into glass confetti, cut from the usual surfeit of angles. The rest is unexceptional, a hodgepodge of corny voice-over and repetitive, anticlimactic plotting, with Hoult and Jones miscast as a couple of party-hardy American expats. But it isn’t unpleasant to look at.

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop. Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days.

Will Get Out Scare Lego Batman Away from the Box Office?

Will Get Out Scare Lego Batman Away from the Box Office?
Warner Bros.' animated spin-off The Lego Batman Movie has had no trouble taking down a other high-profile competitors in its first two weeks in theaters, beating Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick Chapter 2 in its opening weekend, while handily defeating The Great Wall, Fist Fight and A Cure For Wellness last weekend. This Friday, it may face its greatest challenge yet, with the critically-acclaimed thriller Get Out debuting alongside the action film Collide and the animated family comedy Rock Dog. We're predicting that Get Out will just barely win over The Lego Batman Movie, with the thriller opening to the tune of $23.4 million, as The Lego Batman Movie drops to second place with $19.8 million.

None of this weekend's new releases will have anywhere near the type of wide release of The Lego Batman Movie, which is currently playing in 4,088 theaters. Box Office Mojo reports that Get Out will open in an estimated 2,700 theaters,

Nicholas Hoult in action in new clip from ‘Collide’

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Ben Kingsley and Anthony Hopkins, Collide is a new action thriller from director Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch). Well, I say new, but Creevy’s film is one of handful of movies trapped in release limbo following the bankruptcy issues faced by Relativity Media.

After a heist goes terribly wrong, Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen (Anthony Hopkins). Now Casey has precious cargo that belongs to Hagen, who will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Left with no choice, Casey calls his former employer and drug smuggler Geran (Ben Kingsley) to protect his long-time girlfriend Juliette before Hagen gets his hands on her. Casey sets out on an adrenaline-fueled car chase on the German highways to save the love of his life before it’s too late.

Nicholas Hoult & Felicity Jones Drive For Love In New Trailer For ‘Collide’

Geez, Open Road are really kicking off 2017 by getting their garbage out of the way. Last weekend they opened the Jamie Foxx vehicle “Sleepless” without screening it for press, and watched it tank hard over the holiday weekend. And next month comes the frequently delayed “Collide,” and I also won’t be surprised if it also opens without being shown to critics.

Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, a zany Ben Kingsley, and Anthony Hopkins, all collect paydays for the the Eran Creevy (“Welcome To The Punch“) directed movie about a dude who has to go to some crazy lengths to protect his girlfriend from some very bad dudes.

Collide Trailer And Poster Send Nicholas Hoult Careering Toward A Dark Past

How far would you go for the one you love? That’s a tagline that’s been tethered to umpteen drama/thriller/crime flicks over the years, where a character is thrust into such a perilous situation that it leaves their significant other with little choice but to maneuver around a series of obstacles – both literal and figurative – to ensure their safety.

Another movie to hew close those hackneyed conventions is this summer’s heist movie Collide, an action-packed romp that finds Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men: Apocalypse) in the role of Casey Stein, an Average Joe who is ready to risk life and limb to save his ailing girlfriend, Juliette (Felicity Jones).

In order to afford those astronomical medical bills for a kidney transplant, Hoult’s protagonist returns to a life he thought was far behind him – smuggling precious cargo for a group of powerful mob bosses.

‘Collide’ Trailer: “Who Could This Foolish Man Possibly Be?”
In Collide, Casey (Nicholas Hoult) must revisit his dark past to save the one he loves. That set up is very familiar, but Eran Creevy is a director capable of transcending tropes. Creevy’s sophomore effort as a filmmaker, Welcome to the Punch, is a story of hero and foe uniting, a potentially trite set up that makes for a […]
