There's nothing like a good old fashioned action flick about cops who push the envelope of legality by employing criminal methods to catch crooks; the dirtier the good guys get, the better, as a half dozen "Dirty Harry" blockbusters can attest. Which is why the new trailer for "The Sweeney" is so sweet. Just how rough and tumble are these cops?
Well, Ray Winstone is the star — and the title is a reference to the infamous demon barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd.
Yeah. That damn rough. Get More »
You've heard of reboots and remakes. But how often have you heard of a guy remaking his own movie?
Well, that's just what director Géla Babluani has done -- and the new trailer for "13" shows that remaking your own movies is a bit like Russian roulette. Even if you win, you probably crapped yourself. Get More »
Do you want to have an adventure?
Martin Scorsese, director of such decidedly non-family-friendly flicks such as "Shutter Island" and "The Departed," tries his hand at his first children's tale with "Hugo," the film adaptation of Brian Selznick's novel, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret."
The first trailer features a bunch of stuff you never thought you'd see in a Scorsese movie: little scamps (Asa Butterfield and Chloe Moretz) running about, sprawling CGI sets and doggie reaction shots, to name but a few. Oh, and no sign of Leonardo DiCaprio! Get More »
"Snow White and the Huntsman" has cast its final Dwarf -- and he's a scrapper!
Universal isn't pulling any punches in their attempt to pummel the competition in the bout for the best "Snow White."
The studio has already locked in a dedicated audience with Kristen Stewart as the long-suffering Snow, "Thor"'s Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman (please say he will be shirtless the entire movie this time, too) and the entire male male population in the known Universe with Charlize Theron as the Queen of hotness, er, Evil Queen.
But Universal isn't done delivering liver-punches to Relativity's "Snow White" effort. They have succinctly knocked them down with the left-right-left casting on the warrior -- yes, warrior - Dwarfs this week. And now we've got the final three (out of seven, duh!). Get More »
A sci-fi movie based on a Shakespeare play?
Hey, it's been done before -- remember "Forbidden Planet," the 1956 take on "The Tempest?" That was back when Leslie Nielsen was actually trying to be taken seriously as an actor.
Serious thespian types are certainly lined up for "Henry 5," a post-apocalyptic take on the Bard's "Henry V," including Michael Caine, Ray Winstone and Gerard Depardieu. Get More »
Now this is what we're talking about!
Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley have teamed up for a new action flick by the name of "London Boulevard" and, judging by the trailer, it looks to be a real rip-snorter.
Here's the skinny: Farrell plays a lowlife British gangster type who, just released from prison, decides he doesn't want to be a lowlife any more. In order to get out of the game, he gets a straight job as a personal bodyguard for Knightley's put-upon movie star. Needeless to say, she falls for the brooding bad boy. Get More »
