Watch The British Capital Descend Into Chaos In First London Has Fallen TV Spot

5 February 2016 8:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The British capital descends into chaos in today’s first TV spot for Babak Najafi’s action-packed sequel, London Has Fallen.

That’s right, London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady, and there’s only one man that can prevent all-out chaos: Gerard Butler’s hardboiled secret agent Mike Banning. Just when Banning though he had brought an end to global chaos in 2013 sleeper hit Olympus Has Fallen, Najafi’s follow-up shifts gears to take the threat of terrorism across the pond and, specifically, into the heart of England.

While there’s not much in the way of story included in today’s brief spot, London Has Fallen opens at a time when world leaders descend on the British capital to attend the funeral of the late British prime minister.

A new Hollywood hookup on the horizon? Not so fast... Despite reports claiming that Rita Ora and Gerard Butler got hot and heavy after a dinner at a West Hollywood restaurant last month, E! News learns that the relationship between the two stars is completely platonic, and there's no love affair going on here. "They are just friends and there is nothing romantic going on," a source close to the twosome tells us. "They have known each other for a while. They had dinner and nothing more."

Clive Owen Is Perfectly Cast In First Trailer For The Confirmation

28 January 2016 3:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the face of it, it’s a simple story of a boy bonding with his father. But, like all good writing, there is a great deal more to be found, just below the surface – as the new trailer for The Confirmation corroborates. Divorce, past misdeeds, the perception of others, the quest for redemption – this film, that stars Clive Owen, would seem to encompass everything about moving forward in life, and embracing uncertainty. All of that adds up to something that has the potential to be a wonderfully life-affirming experience.

Written and directed by Bob Nelson – whose screenplay for 2013’s Nebraska earned him an Academy Award nomination – The Confirmation sees Jordan Lieberher (Aloha), Matthew Modine (Proof), Robert Forster (Olympus Has Fallen), Stephen Tobolowsky (The Goldbergs) and Tim Blake Nelson (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) join Clive Owen (The Knick), Maria Bello (Prisoners) and Patton Oswalt (Young Adult) in the cast. This is the directorial debut of Nelson, »

London Has Fallen And Gerard Butler Is Up Against It In New Images For Action Sequel

21 January 2016 7:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bloody hell, governor! London Has Fallen and Gerard Butler’s hardboiled secret agent Mike Banning knows all about it in today’s new poster and teaser image for Babak Najafi’s action-packed sequel.

Arriving by way of Entertainment Weekly, the poster embraces the film’s new British setting with arms wide open. Thrusting Aaron Eckhart’s President of the United States into jeopardy once more, London Has Fallen opens on the eve of the British Prime Minister’s funeral. Attracting the top brass from nations around the globe, the event becomes a hotbed for terrorist activity, thereby calling Butler’s semi-retired Banning back from his all-too-brief holiday for another mission that involves, well, kicking ass and taking names.

Picking up the reins from Antoine Fuqua’s sleeper hit, which emerged victorious in its own box office battle with like-minded actioner White House Down, Najafi’s sequel has attracted quite the ensemble cast. »

10 Disappointing Action Movies You Should Die Before You See

8 January 2016 12:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New Line Cinema

In a perfect world, every action movie would be Die Hard. However, since you’re more likely to get Olympus Has Fallen, the genre’s hype machine always goes into overdrive in an attempt to sucker in unsuspecting viewers.

Even if you don’t buy the tenuous connections in the trailer (“From the producers of Die Hard 4.0”), or the nonsensical idea of having a famous name “present” a movie, there are still ways of reeling in the unwary.

Not that Hollywood would ever condone the practice of posting fake reviews, but check out all the glowing notices John Carter received on IMDb after its L.A. premiere. A week before Disney’s $250 million epic fail opened in American multiplexes, it was being hailed as a “must see” by would-be viewers who called it “lean and compact” and “complex and nuanced.”

Somewhat less impressed was USA Today’s critic, »
