Jack Reacher – the rare modern action hero who will threaten to drink a bad guy's blood from a boot – is coming back to punch more crotches, kick more asses, and wear more leather jackets.
Tom Cruise, Paramount Pictures, and Skydance Productions are developing a sequel to last year's Jack Reacher, continuing the cinematic adventures of the paperback hero.
"Got a problem? Odds against you? Call The Equalizer."
Your first look at Denzel Washington as the title character in The Equalizer is now online. In this first glimpse of his reunion with Antoine Fuqua, Washington is so calm, cool, collected, and commanding that you almost don't notice he's holding a big gun.
Synopsis: After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai—a half-breed they once rejected—as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors. As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires this band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
Seven new official images from Transformers: Age of Extinction offer up a little something for everyone.
Well, maybe not everyone, but certainly everyone who dreams of riding shotgun in Bumblebee.
Say what you will about Sylvester Stallone but never forget … he IS an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter!
After penning Rocky, as well as its sequels, the Rambo series, Staying Alive (the sequel to Saturday Night Fever), Cliffhanger, and most recently The Expendables series, not to mention several other successful films, Stallone returns to the big screen as a writer and producer with Homefront, which opens in theaters on November 27th. Homefront is based on the novel of the same name by Chuck Logan, and was directed by Gary Fleder (Kiss the Girls, Runaway Jury). The film features an impressive cast of talented actors including Jason Statham (Parker), Kate Bosworth (Black Rock), Frank Grillo (The Grey), Clancy Brown (Hellbenders), Academy Award-nominees Winona Ryder (The Iceman) and James Franco (Oz the Great and Powerful), and newcomer Izabela Vidovic.
In Homefront, retired DEA agent Phil Broker (Statham) moves with his daughter (Vidovic) to a small town in hopes of a fresh start and a chance to escape the demons of his former career. But his quiet life is quickly turned upside down when his path crosses with a band of drug traffickers, led by meth kingpin Gator Bodine (Franco). Cassie Bodine (Bosworth), Gator’s meth-addicted sister, starts a family feud with Broker after his daughter punches her bully son on the school playground. Meanwhile, Gator enlists his girlfriend (Ryder) to help him make a major drug deal with a local biker gang led by Grillo’s character. Wanting nothing but to be left alone, Broker is soon pulled into the Bodine family drama and threatens Gator’s business when his true identity is discovered.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with director Gary Fleder about his work on Homefront. The accomplished filmmaker discussed his new movie, first reading Sylvester Stallone’s screenplay, working with Stallone on the film, Jason Statham’s dramatic turn in the project, collaborating with the action star on the fight sequences, the unusual choice of casting Oscar-nominee James Franco as the villain, Kate Bosworth’s transformative performance, Winona Ryder’s character, young actress Izabela Vidovic, reuniting with actor Frank Grillo, Hollywood’s fascination with meth, and shooting in New Orleans.
There's a lot of testosterone running through the first trailer for David Ayer's Sabotage.
It's so manly that unless you're chomping on a cigar and lubing up an automatic weapon while watching, you might feel like a pansy by the end.
One of IAR's most anticipated films of next year now has a teaser trailer.
Our first real look at The Raid 2: Berandal promises that the sequel is doubling down on The Raid in virtually every way, upping the ante on the most high-impact action movie to grace American screens in years.
The Fast and the Furious film series is the most successful franchise in Universal Studios history having grossed over $2 billion worldwide, and the most recent installment, Fast & Furious 6, is the highest-grossing of the films so far having earned $788 million at the box office. So it only makes sense that the studio would fast track a seventh installment that is currently filming and is entitled Fast & Furious 7, which is scheduled to drive into theaters on July 11th, 2014.
Due to the film's quick turnaround, director Justin Lin, who has helmed the series ever since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, had to step down, while Insidious: Chapter 2 director James Wan has taken over. Returning franchise stars include Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and Lucas Black, who finally reprises his role from Tokyo Drift. They are joined by series newcomers Kurt Russell, Tony Jaa, Djimon Hounsou, Ronda Rousey, and Jason Statham, who's villainous character was teased in the previous movie's end credit scene.
Earlier today I had the pleasure of speaking with actor Tyrese Gibson about his work on Fast & Furious 7, while he was promoting his upcoming holiday film Black Nativity, which hits theaters on November 27th. The talented hip-hop star turned actor discussed filming Fast & Furious 7, what the franchise means to him, new addition Jason Statham, Statham and Dwayne Johnson's fight scene, the quick production turnaround, and working with director James Wan.
"The Road Warrior meets Kill Bill."
So describes IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick of Bounty Killer, which hits Blu-ray, DVD, and iTunes today, October 29th.
One of several new peeks behind the scenes of Fast & Furious 7 is a little misleading.
