Brian Cox’s Churchill film gets a sumptuous trailer and a June release date

21 March 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

As with Deep Impact and Armageddon, White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen there are to be two films released in 2017 focusing on Winston Churchill. Joe Wright is following up his gaze into the Black Mirror with Darkest Hour, which looks at the fight against Hitler in the early days of World War II. An almost unrecognisable Gary Oldman is our Churchill in Wright’s film, alongside Lily James, Rogue One’s Ben Mendelsohn and the late John Hurt in his last filmed role.

Lionsgate have Brian Cox as their Prime Minister in the new film from The Railway Man director Jonathan Teplitzky. Unambiguously titled Churchill, the film sees Cox lead a cast which includes Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, Ella Purnell, Richard Durden, Julian Wadham and James Purefoy.

In contrast to Darkest Hour this take on Churchill’s life finds its feet on the days approaching the D-Day landings. »

A Family Man Trailer: Gerard Butler Trades Action For Heartfelt Drama

17 March 2017 7:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gerard Butler has done it all. He’s saved Aaron Eckhart’s President of the United States not once, but twice thanks to Olympus Has Fallen and its bombastic follow-up, London Has Fallen – turns out he won’t be completing the hat-trick, though, as Eckhart has passed up the planned action threequel – battled Persians, and will soon go up against a storm straight out of the Old Testament in this year’s Geostorm.

But with A Family Man, Mark Williams’ (The Accountant) directorial debut revolving around one man’s struggle to reconnect with his nearest and dearest, Gerard Butler is set to trade action for heartfelt drama. Pegged for a release in May, we now have the overly revealing first trailer to peruse, which introduces us to Butler’s career-driven headhunter, Dane Jensen. He’s a man that places work first and family second, but as is often the case, »

I've long been a sucker for disaster/weather movies.  The idea of contending with an unstoppable force (nature) and the havoc it can cause is an interesting one and can make for some exciting set pieces.  As such, I can't help but feel excited based off this Geostorm trailer: 

 

 

Let's be honest here...the story, as with Most disaster films, probably isn't going to be all that great, but that's not why I'm going to end up seeing this film.  I'm going for the ridiculous amount of awesome destruction on display.  What do you guys think?

Gerard Butler joins Snow Ponies

5 February 2017 10:11 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 6, 2017

Gerard Butler is to headline a new action movie by the name of Snow Ponies...

Whilst work continues developing a third film in the Olympus Has Fallen series, Gerard Butler is set to busy himself in a new action movie, Snow Ponies. This one’s written by Pat Healy, and the script for it made the 2006 Blacklist of the best unproduced screenplays. The movie is now set to press ahead, with Darrin Prescott directing. It’ll be his directorial debut, following lots of second unit work on the likes of Captain America: Civil War, John Wick and Drive.

Snow Ponies tells the story of seven hardened men (it says here), as they travel across an unpleasant terrain to deliver a package. No idea what the package is, and seemingly, neither do they. Their journey is punctuated by encounters with bandits and assorted obstacles. And they must choose between loyalty to each other, »

4 January 2017 6:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Competing films in Hollywood are nothing new. We’ve seen it many times before, whether it be Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down, Mirror, Mirror and Snow White and the HuntsmanNo Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits or countless others. It’s a common trend and one that looks to continue in the near future. That’s because the iconic story of Robin Hood is gearing up for the big screen treatment once again and will be arriving from a couple of different studios.

First up, we’ve got Lionsgate’s Robin Hood which, from what we’ve heard, will be a mature origin story for the character.
