Any perp who spends a dozen years in prison for keeping lips zipped about the operation's head honcho probably anticipates a little reward action to go down once he's ditched that orange jumpsuit. It's only fair that so much loyalty begets a smooth taste of the high life, right? But as the internet hilariously warns us all, expectation and reality are often two very different things, as with Jude Law's titular safecracker in "Dom Hemingway." Get More »
Chances are you're with it enough to race for the spam button with rolled eyes every time Prince Whatshisface writes some jumbled e-mail to you about that $2.5 million he needs your help sneaking into the States, but believe it or not, there are people who actually fall for that crap. People who haven't quite adjusted to present day society and the need to actively protect one's rear end bank accounts from all those who'd happily take advantage if given even an inch of credibility.
A generation ago, it was Ed McMahon and his fancy balloon posse which had people by the greedy bits, just hoping above all hope that they'd be the next one to get that fateful knock at the door if they just ordered one more year's worth of "Field & Stream."
Nicole Kidman's been on the feature film scene for a few decades now, and we can all agree on the fact that girlfriend is regal to the max. The newly unveiled international trailer for "Grace of Monaco" maybe hasn't quite gotten the memo yet, because they're really driving the point home hard. Get More »
Both Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone got early career praise for their turns as big screen pugilists. De Niro nabbed his second Oscar win for portraying the complicated and oft vicious Jake La Motta in the now-classic Martin Scorsese film "Raging Bull" and Sly, well, he's still pumping out those "Rocky" movies, the first one of which earned him his only two Academy noms way back in '77.
So, the story of "Grudge Match" bringing back the aged scamps for another round in the ring thirty-plus years after their heydays isn't too far off the mark, actually. Get More »
Hurry and check the weather report to see if there are pigs flying about today because this is one movie matching you might never ever have expected to see otherwise.
In "Homefront," the first trailer for which has dropped today at Yahoo! Movies, Jason Statham (a.k.a. the dude who does not shift from his butt-kicking on-screen persona ... ever) stars as a former DEA agent who tries to make cozy new digs for himself and his kid in Nowheresville, USA but quickly finds himself smack dab in the middle of a seedy meth ring run by James Franco l'artiste.
To repeat: that's Jason Statham and James Franco together. In a movie. Just wait, it gets better (read: so much worse).
If you've not yet read the story of how noob writer-director Randy Moore pulled a giant one over on the House of Mouse itself by sneakily filming his horror movie "Escape From Tomorrow" within the very unpermissive walls of Walt Disney World and Disneyland, well, it's a doozy alright (and a real wonder that he's not still neck deep in litigation over it, too).
In a nutshell, Moore used his own experience of living, in his words, "a very artificial childhood, brought on by our cultural obsession with these fake, manufactured worlds of so-called fantasy" with his father in Orlando, Fla. — a.k.a. the global hub of all-things-theme park — to create the story of a dad who starts to go a lot berserk at the Magic Kingdom during a family vacay. This first trailer for the film certainly seems to give an adequate preview of the level of mental and emotional chaos we're talking about here. Get More »
The year 2028 doesn't sound that terribly far away, but a lot can happen in 15 years, people (just ask anyone who remembers the '98 film scene what they think about Hollywood's big re-make machine today).
In the case of "RoboCop," an arguably unnecessary re-tooling of the 1987 award-winning original, technology has advanced to the point that a half-dead police officer can be revived by way of machinery and computerized mind control to become an ass-kicking cyborg who/which does the bidding for this big, evil corporation OmniCorp ... that is, until his even more powerful sense of self-governance sets in and starts to glitch up the system.
