In the last couple of years Bruce Willis has made about a half-a-dozen films that could be considered B-movies – most of which were fair-to-awful.
Once Upon a Time in Venice – the Blu-ray is in stores now – leans into the better than average zone. It’s a slight bit of noir-ish fun that finds the only licensed detective in Venice Beach trying to get his dog back – which is much harder (and more convoluted than you’d think).
On a trip to his hometown to show his son where he came from, Will (Hayden Christensen)and Danny (Ty Shelton) witness a murder while out hunting – which leads to Will being forced to help the survivors of a bank heist gone wrong to evade the local sheriff (Bruce Willis).
First Kill will be in theaters and on demand on July 21st.
If you need a thief, Jack is the best. Crime boss Eddie needs a thief, but isn’t one to ask politely – so he kidnaps Karen, Eddie’s still much beloved ex. Jack is not cool with that, so he plans to save Karen and keep Eddie’s loot for himself and his crew.
Probably not the best idea.
Precious Cargo stars Bruce Willis (Eddie), Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Jack) and Claire Forlani (Karen). Check out the trailer after the break. Precious Cargo will be in theaters and On Demond on April 22nd.

Extraction is a short but not quite sweet spy tale in which a super-hacking device called the Condor is the McGuffin. Basically, it can hack any government’s communications and/or anything that relies on computers – which is pretty much everything these days.
The Condor is actually a device to allow an over the hill CIA agent to extract vengeance for the betrayal that cost his wife’s death.
When Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City came out, it was hailed as innovative, a work of genius. For the follow-up, the two have collaborated to adapt the Sin City graphic novel, A Dame To Kill For – and Miller’s name has been added to the title, hence: Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The trailer has the same black-and-white-with-splashes-of-color noir look of the original film and is cool as all get out.
Loosely based on a grim graphic novel by Warren Ellis, RED was both critically acclaimed and popular. The second trailer for the sequel – imaginatively entitled RED 2 – suggests the movie will be considerably more fun than its title.
Check it out following the jump. RED 2 will be in theaters on July 19th.
