The gender gap in Hollywood may be something that is only now being openly discussed, but it has never really been much of a secret. While progress can be seen, slowly creeping into many genres, it is perhaps the biopic that seems to be desperately clinging on to an unconscious love of white men. Every year, we are bombarded with tales of heroic, interesting and complex men – towering historical figures that have shaped and influenced the world we live in. In fact, if you drew your information from cinema only, you could be forgiven for believing that women have contributed very little – such is the extent of erasure on display. You might even get quite excited about the latest film from writer-director Werner Herzog, titled Queen Of The Desert.
Starring Nicole Kidman, the film tells the story of Gertrude Bell, and her fascinating life spent travelling and working as a »

Back in October, Weeds and Homeland alum Martin Donovan jumped aboard Marvel’s Ant-Man, in a role “pivotal” to the size-changing superhero story. In the months since, a shroud of secrecy has surrounded Donovan’s role. Now, thanks to Bleeding Cool, the mystery has been solved at last.
At the Ant-Man red carpet world premiere in Hollywood this week, it was revealed that Donovan is playing none other than Marvel Comics character Mitchell Carson. If you have no idea who that is, fret not, because you aren’t alone. Donovan himself told reporters that they’d have to Google him once they found out who he was playing, and we’ve gone ahead and done that for you. Be warned, some minor spoilers may follow.

Bullets spray like rain in the brand new trailer for action thriller Hitman: Agent 47.
Having trained Agent 47 to become a killing machine, the non-governmental International Contracts Agency is now on a worldwide manhunt to bring him down.
This fresh trailer for the big screen adventure was released shortly after a brand new Hitman video game was announced by Sony at E3 2015.
"Homeland" has never been a show lacking courage. From its addictive, conspiracy-based first season, to its lead character's concealed bipolar disorder, the Showtime drama isn't afraid to take on the biggest stories and make them feel small, relatable and grounded. Season 4 took a special kind of courage, basically rebooting as one of the show's co-leads was gone and the other shipped off to a new overseas posting. Steering the ship on set was director and executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter, who helmed four episodes of the latest season, including the premiere and the finale. An Oscar and Emmys nominee, Linka Glatter won two DGA awards for directing "Homeland" in 2015 and "Mad Men" in 2010. Now, she's left for an eight-month trip to Germany to shoot the fifth season of the reinvigorated CIA drama. Before she took off, Linka Glatter sat down with Indiewire in Los Angeles for an open discussion about »

The new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s August action flick Hitman: Agent 47 doesn’t make any excuses for what the film is: an exceptionally slick and kinetic video game adaptation packed with brutal fights and ridiculous gymnastics. If you could use some escapism while taking refuge from the hot summer sun, this movie is certainly looking like a good option.
Rupert Friend, of Homeland fame, stars in the action pic as the titular agent, a genetically engineered assassin who rejects his programming in order to track down his creators and earn his freedom. He’s joined in that pursuit by Hannah Ware, who’s seemingly playing another agent unaware of her conditioning. Zachary Quinto co-stars as a well-dressed baddie, and Ciaran Hinds also has a key role.
The real star of this show appears to be director Aleksander Bach, who has packed Agent 47 with some absolutely ridiculous, wildly entertaining stunts, »

Rupert Friend’s Agent 47 is a riddle to everyone around him.
Fox has released the action-laden second trailer for “Hitman: Agent 47,” its upcoming video game adaptation starring “Homeland” actor Friend as a genetically engineered assassin. It’s a sequel to 2007’s “Hitman,” which starred Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott and Olga Kurylenko.
High-speed car chases, gunplay and helicopters dominate the trailer, which reveals that the killer agent is protecting a woman named Katia (Hannah Ware) from a corporation that wants to use her DNA to create more assassins.
The movie hits theaters on August 21.

Callan McAuliffe (“Homeland”) will lead the supernatural drama from the “Heroes” creator, starring as Holden, a young man who wakes up in a hospital not realizing he’s been in a coma for 12 years, emotionally still a teenager, physically an adult, and possibly in possession of supernatural powers.
Jordan Calloway, who’s no stranger to ABC Family with credits including “Switched at Birth” and upcoming addiction drama “Recovery Road,” will play Holden’s childhood best friend; Dilan Gwyn (“DaVinci’s Demons”) will star as Holden’s love interest; Romy Rosemont, best known for playing Cory Monteith’s onscreen “Glee” mom, has been cast as Holden’s mother; Michael McGrady (“Ray Donovan,” “American Crime Story”) will play Holden’s father; and Burkely Duffield (“The Tomorrow People”) will play Holden’s younger brother. »

Soon to be released around the world, we’ve got a new trailer and poster for the big screen adaptation of video game series Hitman: Agent 47 (via IGN). This is the second attempt to turn the game into a movie following the 2007 effort, which grossed over $100 million domestically.

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. Hollywood sure loves that maxim. “Hitman” featuring “Justified” star Timothy Olymphant didn’t work? No mind, just start over. That’s 20th Century Fox’s approach and they’ve restarted their would-be franchise as “Hitman: Agent 47.” The movie stars Rupert Friend, who’s done some really terrific work on “Homeland.” In “Agent 47” he is a genetically engineered hitman tasked with killing Katia (Hannah Ware), the daughter of the head of a mega corporation. Why would he do that? Because the company is building an army of assassins even deadlier than he is. It sounds not unlike “The Terminator” given that the Agent eventually teams up with Katia. “He’s not prepared for the human emotion,” Aleksander Bach, who’s making his directorial debut with this adaptation of the Hitman videogame told EW. “When you’re a cold assassin, how much humanity is still there? »

Fox just released the first full trailer an a new poster for Hitman: Agent 47, the second attempt at a proper adaptation of the popular video game property. Whereas the teaser simply gave us a look at a few set-pieces, to say nothing of our first glance at Rupert Friend as the titular genetically-engineered killer, the full trailer gives us a sense of how the story will unfold. The basic set-up seems to have its roots in something like the Bourne series, with Friend's destructive cue-ball seemingly striking vengeance against corporate and governmental forces who want his talents to create an all-powerful army. In his charge would be Hannah Ware's Katia, a fellow agent who has yet to unlock her training as of yet and who is nearly taken in by Zachary Quinto's nefarious John Smith. The trailer boasts a series of eye-grabbing action sequences, from Friend's anti-hero »

Fox released another trailer for the action flick based on the popular "Hitman" video game franchise, which explains the plot a bit more. "Homeland" star Friend plays 47, a genetically-engineered killing machine who is assigned to protect Katia (Hannah Ware). She turns out to be an assassin just like him, and evil corporate overlord Zachary Quinto wants her DNA to create the perfect army for himself.
This is the second movie adapted off the video games; Timothy Olyphant starred in 2007's "Hitman." The new one looks exactly like what you'd expect - lots of action, car chases, and slo-mo explosions. And it seems to be the perfect first leading role for Friend, who's proven he can play stoic killer on "Homeland."
"Hitman: Agent 47" opens in theaters August 21.
