If you and your mates are ever pounding pints down at the local pub and decide it'd be a good idea to harass the right-posh Colin Firth-looking chap 'round the bar, just don't.

In this clip from Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service, Mr. Darcy shows off his action chops, knocking out teeth and crushing bone against five inebriates without losing his dapper British cool for even a second.

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man may swing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after all.

Last month brought confirmation of an earlier rumor that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had haggled about including the wall-crawler in Captain America: Civil War, but those talks never bore super-fruit.

Now, according to a new rumor, the two studios have worked out a deal that would find Spider-Man joining the MCU in Avengers: Infinity War - Part I come 2018.

Michael Mann has stylishly chronicled crime on film like few modern filmmakers, from the tommy gun-toting bank robbers of Public Enemies to the high-pressure LA heists of Heat.

With his latest film, Blackhat, the director tackles the new frontier of crime, creating an unsettling portrait of global cyber-criminality.

Hacking has been ubiquitous in the news as of late, and Blackhat couldn't be timelier, examining the perils of this plugged-in, turned-on digital age, but doing so through a thriller that takes audiences on a breakneck adventure from Chicago to Los Angeles to Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong.

Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Age of Ultron) leads an international cast that includes Viola Davis (The Help), John Ortiz (Silver Linings Playbook), Tang Wei (Lust, Caution), and Wang Leehom (My Lucky Star).  Hemsworth stars as Nicholas Hathaway, a world-class hacker furloughed convict recruited to help American and Chinese authorities bust a shadowy cyber-crime network with the ability to shift massive sums of money instantaneously and, more importantly, destabilize nuclear reactors.

At the Los Angeles press day for Blackhat, both Michael Mann and Chris Hemsworth talked to IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick, along with other entertainment journalists from around the globe, about their new film, which hits theaters this Friday.  The director and star enthusiastically and thoughtfully discussed what they learned about cyber-crime in the course of making the film, as well as the project's origins, playing a hacker, reinventing the crime genre, and filming around the world rather than relying on green screens.

Much like Snake Plissken himself, the Escape From New York remake is never dead, no matter how certain its demise may seem.

After a competitive bidding war, 20th Century Fox has won the rights to John Carpenter's action classic.  The studio will now start over, abandoning several years of development in the hopes of kickstarting a franchise from scratch (or as much from scratch as a reboot can possibly be).

The return trip to Pandora's going to take longer than expected.

James Cameron's Avatar sequel trilogy has been pushed back by a full year.

Awards season, the longest season of the year, continues on. 

Today, the Directors Guild of America announced the five nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2014, meaning that statistically, one of these five people is very, very likely to win the Best Director Oscar when the Academy Awards put an end to this season of pomp and circumstance.

The nominees for the 67th Annual DGA Award are: Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Clint Eastwood for American Sniper, Alejandro González Iñárritu for Birdman, Richard Linklater for Boyhood, and Morten Tyldum for The Imitation Game.

David Fincher and Ben Affleck faced a bit of a pressure adapting Gone Girl, a popular bestseller.

Their reunion makes that look like a cakewalk, however.  The director and star are working with Gone Girl novelist/screenwriter Gillian Flynn to remake Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.

There's an alternate universe where a Star Wars sequel is hitting theaters this May, but not the one directed by JJ Abrams.

George Lucas has revealed that he initially planned on directing Star Wars: Episode VII for release in May 2015, then selling Lucasfilm to Disney.

Caesar has stormed the Visual Effects Society: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes leads the nominees for the 13th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards, racking up a whopping five nominations.

20th Century Fox just released both a red and green band trailer for the action-comedy that once again pairs the director and star who've proven they're great tastes that taste great together.
