Well, I’ve finally seen The Interview and, let me just tell you, it’s a pretty decent little comedy. Cause for international furor? Not really. More like a modern Rat Pack kind of thing where a bunch of guys get together and make a movie for the hell of it.
Annie is a reimagining of the Broadway musical-turned-movie based on the classic comic strip Little Orphan Annie. It’s the story of an orphan who becomes the adopted daughter of an unscrupulous, wealthy man who straightens up and flies right because of her.
In the comic strip and musical, the wealthy man was billionaire Daddy Warbucks – so named because he made his fortune selling arms to all buyers. While war profiteers will always be with us, here he’s a telecommunications mogul named Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx). Annie is played by Oscar®-nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild).
Sony Pictures Entertainment is showing its admiration and respect for veterans and military personnel by providing free admission the its film Fury at select theaters.
Veterans and military personnel with appropriate identification will be given free admission to Fury all day tomorrow, November 11th. Follow the jump for details.
Fury ratchets up the intensity from the opening moments and maintains it for over two hours through the introduction of characters that initially feel stock but become something else – and escalating violence and hints at the erosion of decency that war can cause.
When a former special ops expert comes out of retirement to help a teen prostitute, things get violent.
Based on the ‘80s TV series, Antoine Fuqua directs The Equalizer as a modern combination of ‘70s thriller and contemporary action flick – to devastating results.
There’s a new trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer. Denzel Washington makes a pretty good action hero. Check it out after the jump.
The Equalizer opens September 26th.
Annie writes a ‘mommy blog’ and her latest entry is bemoaning the lack of opportunities to have sex with her husband and recalling the way they screwed like bunnies when they were first together. One night she gets the kids off to Grandma’s place for a sleepover, but she and Jay can’t quite get things going until she comes up with the idea of making a private sex tape.
The first trailer has been released for Fury, starring Brad Pitt. Set in 1945, it’s the story of a tank crew that finds itself alone against a horde of German soldiers during the final push to end World War II.
Fury premieres on October 24th. The trailer follows the jump.
For all its flaws, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 was committed. By comparison, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 a paint-by-numbers version of the comic. If not for the chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, TASM2 would be a complete bust – their on-again/off-again romance is the only part of the movie that feels at all real.
Take a leap (follow the jump) to the new (and final) trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man. It’s all in the wrist.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens on May 2nd.
Stalingrad is an outstanding war movie because it takes one isolated group of people in the middle of the most epic battle of World War II and tells their story. In that way it is kind of the Russian Saving Private Ryan.
