In this weekend's "Flight," Denzel Washington attempts to pilot his airplane to a soft landing. There's early talk of a Best Actor nomination, and the film is certainly worth a watch. But what other things has Denzel saved during his long and distinguished career?
From his Academy Award wins in "Glory" and "Training Day" to his Academy Award nominations in "The Hurricane," "Malcom X," and "Cry Freedom," Denzel Washington has gone out of his way, on a number of occasions, to save our bacon. So what makes up a proper Denzel save situation, and what what exactly was he saving with his heroic actions? Look no further, we've got the definitive list! Get More »
UPDATE: Earlier reports that claimed Tony Scott was suffering from inoperable brain cancer are currently unconfirmed, with Deadline reporting — via Scott's widow, Donna — that this was not the case at all. A full investigation is underway and an autopsy is pending.
Tony Scott, director of such hit films as "Top Gun," "Crimson Tide" and "Man on Fire," has died after jumping off a bridge in San Pedro, Calif., on Sunday afternoon, Los Angeles police tell the Los Angeles Times. He was 68. Get More »
Tony Scott (1944-2012) got started in show biz by calling the shots on commercials before making his feature directorial debut in 1983 with the pop art vampire drama, "The Hunger," starring Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie and Susan Sarandon. Three years later he would make a little movie called "Top Gun" and the rest is Hollywood history.
Check out our collection of pics from the late, great director's filmography, from "The Hunger" to "Unstoppable."
Chris Pine may have begun his career supporting such famous leading ladies as Anne Hathaway and Lindsay Lohan, but it didn't take long for us to notice those piercing blue eyes and bold brows. We wanted more of Pine, and we certainly got it with his roles in the super macho action flicks "Star Trek," "Unstoppable" and "This Means War."
Chris shows that side in the upcoming dramedy "People Like Us" where he plays Sam, a down on his luck salesman who discovers he has a 30-year-old sister after his father passes away. In the movie, Pine's character reconsiders his family, his life and the choices he's made, but we're certain after flipping through this Hot People Looking Hot Gallery, you'll never reevaluate Chris' hotness again.
"Star Trek"'s Chris Pine simply cannot be stopped.
The dastardly-handsome Captain Kirk is one of Hollywood's hottest young stars and his recent turn as Will in the action-packed "Unstoppable," where he must stop a runaway train from demolishing a city, left us on the edge of our seats thirsting for more.
Because we pine for Pine (get it?) and his non-stop locomotive action movies (get it?), we wanted to share the Trekkie and train love with all of you, so we're giving away three copies of "Unstoppable" on DVD. Get More »
It's a great week to be nostalgic, with several classic movies being released for the first time on Blue-ray including "Network," "Last Tango in Paris," "The Stranger," "All the President's Men," and "Rainman."
Also new this week: check out "Unstoppable" and a magical "Waiting for Superman" release that pays for itself and makes you a philanthropist!
In the middle of the 2000s, director Tony Scott must have gone through a serious mid-life crisis, since his films transformed from slick action vehicles ("Top Gun," "Enemy of the State") into strange, double-exposed, borderline experimental visual exercises on mescaline. Those exhausting entries in Scott's flairy "cubist" period ("Man on Fire," "Domino") have been blessedly left behind for his new thriller entry "Unstoppable," and, after his excesses are peeled away, what we're left with is an old pro doing what he does best: SPEED.
Yes, this is one of those well-oiled cinematic machines with a simple enough premise of a runaway freight train carrying deadly chemicals (why is it never the train with Beanie Babies?) and two blue-collar railroad men who heroically risk their hides to stop it. Get More »
The thin plot of the recently released "Unstoppable," starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine as engineers who must stop a runaway train, is admittedly a little easy to poke fun at.
But after watching this "Saturday Night Live" spoof starring Jay Pharoah as Washington and Taran Killam as Pine, we're convinced 'SNL' is just looking for any excuse to showcase Pharaoah's pitch-perfect Denzel imitation. Get More »
Chris Pine is ditching the next generation for the American railways.
The erstwhile Captain Kirk is set for massive disaster in November's "Unstoppable," in which he plays train operator Will Colson set on a collision course with co-star Denzel Washington. But even with so much excitement, he doesn't put the breaks on his geek-out sesh with MTV.
In the fresh interview, he spills about how grateful he is to have worked with his idols, Washington and director Tony Scott, dishes on how this role may translate to his "Star Trek" fans and answers the inevitable question of the film's commonality with "Speed."
