Another Trailer for That Ethan Hawke Action Movie '24 Hours to Live'

"These guys don't play nice." Get locked and loaded. Saban Films debuted another new official trailer for the adrenaline-fueled action indie movie 24 Hours to Live, yet another assassin story if you're up for another one. Ethan Hawke stars as a career assassin who is given a chance at redemption after his employer brings him back to life temporarily after being killed on the job. This trailer is a bit more action heavy again, making this seem like some Taken meets Bourne meets Shoot 'Em Up meets Crank movie. The rest of the main cast includes Xu Qing, Liam Cunningham, Rutger Hauer, and Paul Anderson. This is worth a watch just to see what it's about, but damn it seems like a weird film with angry Hawke. Have fun. Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Brian Smrz's 24 Hours to Live, direct from Vimeo: You can still watch the first

Shoot 'Em Up: revisiting a brilliantly daft action film

Andrew Blair Apr 25, 2017

Looking for a film to pair in a double bill with Crank? Then Shoot 'Em Up, starring Clive Owen, is wonderfully bonkers...

Light spoilers for Shoot 'Em Up lie ahead.

See related Westworld episode 10 review: The Bicameral Mind Westworld episode 9 review: The Well-Tempered Clavier

Shoot ‘Em Up is a very silly film. It’s at its best when it is being very silly, and not when it attempts to be serious or apply something as clichéd and boring as a plot to all the bits between shootings.

Made during a period in Clive Owen’s career when he was making quite a few awards-troubling, critically acclaimed movies, Shoot ‘Em Up stands out quite distinctly as a knowingly trashy and cheerfully ludicrous series of set pieces. The plot that connects all these stunts comes with a pithy Team America-light philosophy on gun use, and could be a parody

Robert Pattinson Shelters in His Limo in New Cosmopolis Trailer

A fresh new trailer for David Cronenberg's new surreal adventure 'Cosmopolis' has landed. Robert Pattinson ('Twilight') leads in this twisted futuristic vision where he plays Eric Packer a young financial genius whose recent risk puts him in the line of fire. The trailer previewed by those wondrous horror lads Arrow in the Head is a trippy little experience full of solid acting and bizareness that we've come to expect from a Cronenberg project such as this. The iconic director helms his project from a self adapted script based on the novel by author Don DeLillo. Samantha Morton ('Minority Report'), Jay Baruchel ('The Apocalypse'), Paul Giamatti ('Shoot 'Em Up', 'John Dies at the End'), Kevin Durand ('Lost'), Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon, Mathieu Amalric and Emily Hampshire all co-star. Check out the new trailer below....

Variety reports that Japanese advertising agency Dentsu and Hayakawa Publishing Corp. have entered into a live-action feature rights deal for Japanese sci-fi novels that have attracted the interest of Transformers producer Don Murphy and Shoot 'Em Up helmer Michael Davis.

AngryFilms principal Murphy plans to develop an adaptation of sci-fi author Issui Ogawa's novel Tokisuna no Ou (The Lord of the Sands of Time), which Hayakawa published in 2007. The time-travel war novel takes place in the 26th century after human life on Earth has been annihilated by alien invaders. The story follows a messenger who is sent back to the past to battle the aliens.

Possible future films for Clive Owen

If actor Clive Owen ever finds himself at a loose end, Andrew has a few film pitches which he thinks will be a perfect fit…

Described as potentially “one note” in Empire Magazine (with the qualifying comment of “it's a bloody good note and nobody else could play it better”), Clive Owen is more versatile than many give him credit for.

After a varied career in film, stage and television with appearances of note in Chancer, Close My Eyes, the original theatrical version of Closer, and 1997's double-header of Croupier and Bent, he reached the big time in with a very strong run of films (from Sin City in 2005 through to Shoot 'Em Up in 2007). Since then he has alternated between more obviously commercial work such as Duplicity and Killer Elite with more personal, human dramas such as Intruders and The Boys are Back.

The full trailer for Oliver Stone's Savages with Kitsch, Hayek, Travolta, and Del Toro

The full-length trailer for Oliver Stone's Savages has arrived and it looks like the director may finally be having some fun, delivering what looks to be a straight action-crime flick with a stellar cast, including Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro, and Blake Lively. Shoot 'em up: I've been hoping that Stone would tackle the action genre for a while.  He's got some serious technical skill that doesn't get much use in the films he's been...

Justin Lin Attached to Direct Acclaimed Manga 'Lone Wolf and Cub'

If you have even a cursory interest in Japanese manga, you've probably heard of Lone Wolf and Cub. Considered by many to be a landmark of the medium, Kazuo Koike's 1970's work has been adapted into films before and influenced everything from the work of Frank Miller to the film Shoot 'Em Up. The story follows a disgraced executioner-turned-assassin who travels the country with his three-year-old son and seeks revenge on those who betrayed him. Today, Deadline reports that Kamala Films has acquired rights and plans on bringing the series to new audiences with Fast Five helmer Justin Lin attached to direct. The screenplay will be written by David & Janet Peoples, a husband-wife duo who had a hand in writing Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, and Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys. That's a pretty damn impressive list of credits, and with a property like this,

Clive Owen Believes in Ernest Hemingway, But Not in Judd Apatow

Clive Owen Believes in Ernest Hemingway, But Not in Judd Apatow
Maybe it just comes with age, but as of late Clive Owen has taken to playing protective fathers ("Making the Boys," "Trust" are two recent examples). Even in the gonzo action film, "Shoot 'Em Up," he spent most of the film fiercely protecting a newborn from an army of gunmen, despite not being the kid's father. His latest, "Intruders," finds Owen exploring similar paternal terrain, albeit in a horror genre picture. In the film, helmed by Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("28 Weeks Later"), Owen plays John Farrow, a father of a 12-year-old girl (Ella Purnell), forced into action when his daughter is assaulted at night by a faceless being. A parallel story concerns a little boy in Spain visited by a similar mysterious figure. "Intruders" opens in limited release this Friday. Following that, audiences can catch him as author Ernest Hemingway in the upcoming HBO film "Hemingway &...

Cronenbergs Cosmopolis Scores Poster and Robert Pattinson Naked in New Teaser

Visionary filmmaker David Cronenberg ('eXistenZ', 'A History of Violence') will be returning to his surreal and visceral best for his newly adapted project 'Cosmopolis'. The new drama from Cronenberg is based on the novel of the same name by American author Don DeLillo and stars 'Twilight' teenage crush Robert Pattinson as a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. Pattinson, who thankfully appears to be breaking away finally from his popular teenie bopper vampire role, features in the newly released teaser trailer naked along with nude co-star Patricia McKenzie and it looks fantastic! In spite of 'Cosmopolis' gaining a variety of international releases thus far which spread throughout 2012 there is no current word of a Us or UK release date. But hopefully that'll change real soon. Pattinson is joined by Samantha Morton ('Minority Report'), Jay Baruchel ('The Apocalypse'), Paul Giamatti ('Shoot 'Em Up',

A Look At New Graphic Novel Last Mortal

In graphic novel news, here's a little look at the supernatural noir Last Mortal, which you can get your grubby little hands on right now at comic retailers everywhere. Looks like an interesting premise that has me curious about the rest.

Our friends at Bloody Disgusting had a chat with series creators Filip Sablik and John Mahoney about the kind of thought and detail that undoubtedly goes into each and every panel. Dig on a little bit of that chat below, but make sure you head on over to Bloody for the whole conversation and a look at a few more sketches.

New Teaser One-Sheet And Stills Revealed For New John Dies at the End Feature

One of the projects I'm excited about seeing next year is the feature adaption of David Wong's novel 'John Dies at the End'. Perhaps because its so fantastical or maybe just because I've finished reading the book. Either way the Don Coscarelli ('Bubba Ho-Tep') helmed feature has started ramping up the assets over at its official Facebook page and released a new poster and a couple of new stills. The new stills feature stars Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes who play David and John, a couple of college dropouts who get caught up in an unworldy adventure. The stills also feature co-stars Paul Giamatti ('Shoot 'Em Up') and Fabianne Therese. Check out all the new assets below....

Justified Season 3: Raylan and Boyd Shoot 'Em Up in New Teaser

Justified Season 3: Raylan and Boyd Shoot 'Em Up in New Teaser

It hardly feels like any time has passed since Justified season 2 went off the air. Maybe that's because the season finale, "Bloody Harlan," was just so insanely memorable. It was probably the best episode of Justified yet, featuring a pretty intense shootout (in which we saw Tim's sniper work in action once again), an even more intense standoff between Loretta (Kaitlyn Dever) and Mags (Margo Martindale), and a sadly satisfying final scene.

But while the season 2 finale seems like it only happened a few months ago, we're already approaching the Justified season 3 premiere. It seems soon partially because of "Bloody Harlan," but also because it's been pushed up a month: while Justified premiered its second season back in February, season 3 is going to hit in January. As such, FX is already pumping out a few trailers for the show.

Clive Owen Set to 'Recall' Some More Action from 'Taxi Driver' Writer

Since the British actor didn't land the job of Agent 007 with Daniel Craig taking the iconic role instead, apparently Clive Owen thought it would be appropriate to take on action all over the board to make up for it. Films like King Arthur, Sin City, Inside Man, Shoot 'Em Up and Killer Elite earlier this year have let Own cut loose as an action star, and it doesn't sound like he's done taking names and kicking ass anytime soon. Variety reports the actor is attached to star in the new action film Recall. Normally I wouldn't be interested in another action venture with Owen, writer Paul Schrader, the man behind Taxi Driver, wrote the script. The veteran writer also wrote Raging Bull,  The Last Temptation of the Christ, and Bringing Out the Dead for director Martin Scorsese, so we're not just dealing with another generic action writer handing in a
