‘Hangman’ Trailer: Al Pacino Plays Deadly Game With Serial Killer

‘Hangman’ Trailer: Al Pacino Plays Deadly Game With Serial Killer
“I don’t want to see them die for what I did,” growls Al Pacino as the grizzled homicide detective in Johnny Martin’s upcoming crime thriller Hangman. This new trailer doesn’t make clear exactly what Pacino did – whether he missed a vowel or consonant in the child’s game of the title, or maybe something worse – but victims are hanging around all over town. Set to the tune of “House of the Rising Sun,” the trailer introduces us to Pacino’s homicide detective Ray Archer and…

British Soul Great Eric Burdon Debuts His Electrifying Take on a ’60s Protest Anthem

British Soul Great Eric Burdon Debuts His Electrifying Take on a ’60s Protest Anthem
Eric Burdon’s soulful, heart-stopping wail made him one of the most unforgettable voices of the ’60s. As the lead singer for British Invasion heroes the Animals, he injected a dose of gritty reality into the pop charts with hits like “House of the Rising Sun” and “We Gotta Get Out of This Place,” and by decade’s end he had moved on to front the barrier-breaking funk group, War.

Today, the music legend remains an active advocate for peace, producing music aimed squarely at the status quo. In honor of his 76th birthday, Burdon is treating fans to a

Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson on Creating the World of ‘The Endless’

As someone who loved Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson‘s Spring to the point of seeking out everything else they had done before that point, hearing about a new work debuting at Tribeca got me excited to see what they would deliver. My assumption was that it was the Aleister Crowley picture they spoke about when I interviewed them last year — I was wrong. While that discovery wasn’t surprising considering how long projects gestate, it was shocking to discover The Endless proved to be a sequel to their first feature collaboration Resolution.

They have created a film around the characters they played themselves: Aaron and Justin, UFO cult members. Would this new tale ten years later be only tangentially related through these characters or would the mythos be the same? If the latter, would it bring back the “monster,” locale, and supporting cast? These are important questions to ask,

Exclusive: ‘Moana’ Star Auli'i Cravalho Says Bump on Her Head Is a Reminder That the Oscars Wasn’t a Dream
Auli'i Cravalho is taking a cue from her portrayal of Moana these days. “I think I’ve become a little more adventurous through her character,” the 16-year-old explains to Et. “I’ve traveled across the world and am able to meet all these wonderful people.” Like the Disney-animated princess who voyages across the ocean in search of a demigod named Maui, Cravalho, who voiced the title role in the film (now available on Blu-ray and Digital HD), is venturing all over New York City for the next three weeks as she tapes a live-action pilot for a new NBC show called Drama High.

“I am very excited. I get to wear scarves and coats because it's cold,” the Hawaiian native exclaims. The show centers on talented students from a working-class town in a standout high school drama department, who are enriched by their impassioned teacher. The project, which Cravalho says is more realistic than Glee, is the latest

One thing that was so often overlooked in Westworld‘s blistering rise to prominence is the official soundtrack. Orchestrated by musical maestro Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Pacific Rim), the score was crafted with a blend of classical orchestra and electronica, peppered with dark, jarring covers of pop music from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Soundgarden and The Pixies.

Available to purchase and stream across all the usual platforms (read: Apple Music and Spotify), the Westworld soundtrack bundles together 34 tracks in total. From “House of the Rising Sun” to “Paint It Black,” those of you fully up-to-date with HBO’s sci-fi Western will appreciate how Djawadi’s score is able to transport you back to specific moments from the source material. That, and it will make the wait for Westworld‘s second season that little bit more bearable.

We dive right into the repercussions of last week’s episode, as Bernard deals with the anguish of Theresa’s death, while Ford marvels at the depths of emotion Bernard is feeling — before he turns them off, and instructs Bernard to cover up Theresa’s death and erase any record of their relationship beyond colleagues.

When Charlotte learns that Theresa is dead, she seems to accept (wih suspicion) Ford’s story about her having slipped and fallen; however, she then enlists Sizemore to help her smuggle “35 years worth of data” out of the park using retired host Peter Abernathy. Initially, it seemed like the board was prepared to take its time getting rid of Dr. Ford — now, it looks like the timetable has sped up.

How Suicide Squad’s soundtrack reveals studio interference, what David Ayer’s original cut was, and the reported ‘Trailer Park’ version…

Over the last decade, trailers have become an art form all by themselves. They’re music videos for movie fanatics; a quick fix for film junkies. And Suicide Squad had several of the last year’s best. But great trailers do not make a great movie. Especially when they comprise the entire first act.

That’s what happens in Suicide Squad. Not David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, but the studio-molested cut released in cinemas. The first half of the movie is mini-film trailer after mini-film trailer; character introduced via musical montage, followed by snippets of a scene via musical montage. It’s like a kid with Adhd channel-flicking through music videos, and it sabotages vital character development and relationships.

This might be because Suicide Squad was reportedly recut by Trailer Park, the company that edited those initial teasers, at Warner Bros’ request. People didn’t much like Batman v Superman,

‘The Magnificent Seven’ New Trailer: Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt Take On an Army

‘The Magnificent Seven’ New Trailer: Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt Take On an Army
The new trailer for “The Magnificent Seven” proves it was high time Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt starred in a movie together. Their on-screen chemistry in director Antoine Fuqua’s remake of John Sturges’ 1960 Western is palpable, and the movie looks like one hell of a ride.

Here’s the official synopsis: With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Washington), Josh Farraday (Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

"The Magnificent Seven" Starring Denzel Washington: Teaser Trailer Is Released

  • CinemaRetro
By Lee Pfeiffer

For fans of "The Magnificent Seven", the sands in the hourglass have finally run out. Since the mid-1990s, there have been attempts by studio executives to bring director John Sturges' classic 1960 Western back to the big screen. There was a reasonably popular TV series based on the film that aired in the 1990s but no big screen feature film ever went into production- until now. We realize it is irresponsible to judge a film simply on the basis of its trailer. However, it is appropriate to judge the trailer on its own merits. Suffice it to say that the trailer for the new big screen version of "The Magnificent Seven" stinks-- on ice.  First, it's cut in the same style that virtually every action movie trailer now follows. It's as though the creators of these trailers are in arrested development from the era of  when

Watch The First Trailer For The Magnificent Seven

  • TheMovieBit
Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington ride once more together with this remake of The Magnificent Seven, and while it feels like a more different beast than the original or the classic Japanese movie that inspired it, it still promises one hell of an entertaining time. Set to a pretty sweet cover of House of the Rising Sun, it feels like Fuqua has taken the most enduring elements of big action blockbusters and laid it over the skeleton of classic Western tropes. And y’know what, it might just work, with an incredibly game cast, including Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio, seemingly having an absolute blast. Released: September 23rd Synopsis: With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack.

‘Magnificent Seven’ trailer shows off gunslinging Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington
Seven men on horseback will again ride through the Old West to save the day, and this time, they’re led by Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. The two actors saddled up for The Magnificent Seven remake opening in theaters later this year. Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), the film’s first trailer hit the web today. You can watch it below: Based on the 1960 Western The Magnificent Seven, which itself was based on Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, the new film also stars Peter Sarsgaard as industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, who’s ruthlessly taken control of the small town of Rose Creek.

First Trailer: "The Magnificent Seven"

Antoine Fuqua's remake of the classic western "The Magnificent Seven" hits cinemas on September 23rd and Sony Pictures have today unveiled the first trailer for the film.

Though seemingly an ensemble piece in concept, the trailer plays up Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt as the leads - other members like Vincent D'Onofrio, Ethan Hawke and Byung-hun Lee are all given short shrift.

Also a point of contention is the music, a solid cover of "House of the Rising Sun" but inexplicably dubstepped - something we might get in the film itself which is said to boast a "hip hop inflected western score".
