Jack Ryan TV series: air date revealed, new trailer arrives

Kirsten Howard Rob Leane Jan 31, 2018

Amazon has released a new trailer for its young Jack Ryan series, and we now know when we'll finally be able to check it out...

Amazon has been keeping its attempt at a Jack Ryan TV series away from public scrutiny until very recently. Announced ages ago, the show - based on precisely zero of the actual books and starring The Office's John Krasinski - will focus on Ryan's early years as a CIA analyst wading into the murky waters of his first field assignment.

Best film and TV thrillers on Netflix

Best film and TV thrillers on Netflix
Thrillers come in all shapes and sizes, from sophisticated legal dramas to high-octane and shocking action features.

With the atmospheric and absorbing Netflix original series Bloodline arriving this week, here are some of the best TV and movie thrillers on Netflix:

Oldboy

Not for the faint of heart, South Korean director Park Chan-wook's Oldboy tells the story of a man who is locked away for 15 years without knowing the identity of his captor or the reason for his punishment.

When he is released just as inexplicably, he finds himself with only five days to unravel the mystery, save the woman he loves and seek vengeance against the people who destroyed his life.

Damages

The amazing Glenn Close and Rose Byrne star as two dysfunctional lawyers in the show that combines legal drama with psychological thriller.

With non-linear storytelling and a powerful atmosphere of paranoia over five seasons, you'll learn to suspect everyone,

5 less obvious alternatives to Mark Strong as Lex Luthor

With Mark Strong rumoured to be director Zack Snyder’s choice to take on the role of Lex Luthor in Man of Steel 2 (now probably to be known as Batman vs Superman or Superman vs Batman), is it too early to call this one – or could there yet be other, perhaps less obvious options for Snyder to choose from?

Having been one of the most anticipated films of 2013, Superman reboot Man of Steel lived up to the billing and is still taking the global box-office by storm; so much so that the production trio of Zack Snyder, David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan have already hinted that a sequel could possibly be fast-tracked by Warner Brothers and in post-production as early as late 2014. This leaves a key casting decision to be made as far as the widely predicted return of classic Superman villain Lex Luthor is concerned; with seemingly only

DVD Review: 'Jackpot'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Over the last few years Norwegian author Jo Nesbø has shot to fame on the back of a series of successful crime novels - principally involving Oslo detective, Harry Hole. Last year saw the first two films based on his stories arrive in the UK; slick thriller Headhunters (Hodejegerne, 2011) was based on one of his novels and Jackpot (Arme Riderre, 2011) on an original idea for the screen. The latter, directed by Magnus Martens, now arrives on DVD from Metrodome Distribution. Retaining the crime elements for which the author is known, this blackly comic effort is something of a damp squib.

Ricky D’s 50 Favourite Films of 2012 (Part One)

2012 wasn’t a bad year for movies. It was actually a great year. The problem is, the movies we were most anticipating, specifically the Hollywood blockbusters like Prometheus and The Hobbit, didn’t live up to our expectations. With that said I still managed to make a list of 50 films I loved. Maybe I just have bad taste or maybe I just love movies but the most time consuming factor when making this list was sitting down and deciding what makes the cut and what doesn’t. Even with 50 films listed below, I found it hard to not include movies like Frankenweenie, The Loneliest Planet, Footnote, Compliance, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, and Searching For Sugar Man. Come to think of it, every film featured on our list of best documentaries could have easily snuck into this list. I haven’t seen everything of course. Below is

Film Review: 'Jackpot'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Magnus Martens' Jackpot (Arme Riddere, 2011) marks the latest cinematic excursion of Norwegian novelist Jo Nesbø. Based on an original story penned purposely for the screen, yet similar in both tone and texture to Morten Tyldum's Headhunters (Hodejegerne, 2011), Martens' dark comedy of errors is yet another example of the Scandinavian film industry's strong ongoing relationship with the crime genre.

2012: The Best Movies of May

2012 promises to be a fantastic year in cinema. Not too long ago, we posted a list of thirty of our most anticipated films of 2012, and so I decided I would keep track of my favourite films released each month. Here are my three favorite films released in May.

1- Laurence Anyways

Directed by Xavier Dolan

Screenplay by Xavier Dolan

Xavier Dolan reveals a romantic, albeit tragic side, in Laurence Anyways, a highly unconventional romance that shows the young filmmaker has matured since his sophomore effort, Les Amours Imaginaire. Putting aside the last hour of the pic, a gargantuan mess that stretches what seems like a lifetime – the first 90 minutes is by far his best work yet, proving that confidence and ambition are not something Dolan lacks.

Dolan’s imagery and dialogue is strong, with a soundtrack of handpicked 80′s and 90′s hits that service many of the film’s best

Exclusive Headhunters Poster

Exclusive Headhunters Poster
As any die-hard thriller lover will tell you, Jo Nesbo is a pretty big deal. Heralded as the next Stieg Larsson years ago, only now are his novels being turned into films, notably 2008's Headhunters, or to use its original name, Hodejegerne.Released in his homeland of Norway and bought up by 50 different countries, Headhunters is now set to hit British shores, with a release date set for April 6.Starring Aksel Hennie in the lead role of Roger Brown, the film tells the tale of a successful headhunter / art thief who meets his match when he steals a painting from a former mercenary, Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) - a man he's also seeking to set up as the head of a firm.Today we've got a poster for you to enjoy, and without any further ado, here it is.And before you ask, yes, yes indeed, it's already being lined up for a Hollywood remake.

St. Louis International Film Festival 2011: Gripping thriller ‘Headhunters’ is the surprise of the fest

Headhunters (Hodejegerne)

Directed by Morten Tyldum

Written by Lars Gudmestad, Jo Nesbø, and Ulf Ryberg

Norway, 2011

Adapted from a novel by the acclaimed Norwegian writer Jo Nesbø, Headhunters is an original thriller filled with surprises. Initially disguised as a heist film, the story quickly transforms into a brutal test of wills that pushes the lead beyond his breaking point. Director Morten Tyldum (Fallen Angels) introduces a fairly despicable lead character but makes him identifiable because his actions are understandable. Once the chaos begins, his will to live is stronger than anyone expects and makes even the most talented killer underestimate his resolve.

Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) stars as Roger Brown, a diminutive headhunter for large corporations who has built a reputable business. He’s earned decent money but can’t keep up with the financial expectations of his gorgeous wife Diana (SynnøveMacody Lund). To supplement his income, he learns about

Headhunters / Hodejegerne (2011) Movie Trailer: Morten Tyldum, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Headhunters / Hodejegerne Trailer. Morten Tyldum‘s Headhunters / Hodejegerne (2011) movie trailer stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aksel Hennie, Julie R. Olgaard, Joachim Rafaelsen, and Baard Owe. Hodejegerne‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Jo Nesbo, Headhunter “chronicles the escapades of a high-living corporate headhunter who steals artwork from his rich clients to finance his expensive lifestyle. When a heist unexpectedly goes south, he discovers he’s in way over his head in a murderous scheme.”

Great movie trailer. I am looking forward to seeing this. The Headhunter certainly gets more than he pardon for towards the mid-point of this trailer. Looks gritty. The Us rights to this film have already been acquired, written about here: Headhunters: Summit Entertainment acquires Jo Nesbø Crime Thriller.

Tiff 2011: Films We Are Most Looking Forward To: Trailer For The Norwegian Thriller ‘Headhunters’

If you loved Steig Larsson’s Millenimum Trilogy and you need your fix of a dark Scandanavian thriller, you could maybe use Morten Tyldum’s The Headhunters (Hodejegerne), which is an adaptation of the Jo Nesbo’s book. Regardless if Variety call is a “by-the-numbers Norwegian thriller”, Headhunters boasts a pretty exciting trailer. Headhunters stars Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as an elite headhunter who finances his lavish lifestyle by stealing art from his own clients.
