Kingsman The Secret Service

After the success of Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar are teaming up again for another action-packed comic book movie. Kingsman: The Secret Service stars Colin Firth as an ultra-competent spy who recruits a troubled but talented street kid (Taron Egerton) for his top-secret organization.

Like Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service takes on familiar genre tropes with wit and verve. We’ve seen well-dressed, well-mannered James Bond figures before, but probably never quite like this. Hit the jump to watch the new Kingsman The Secret Service trailer. It also features a new Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding track, if that’s your thing.

Pauly Shore Stands Alone trailer
Showtime has acquired the independent documentary feature Pauly Shore Stands Alone about the life of a struggling and aging comedian. The Pauly Shore film was produced by a /Film reader and recently won Best Documentary Feature at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival, and is now set to premiere on the premium cable channel on December 4th 2014. Unlike some of Shore’s recent efforts, Pauly Shore Stands Alone is not a fake documentary or mockumentary and actually seems to be an interesting look at a comic trying to run back into the spotlight after his 15 minutes of fame had ended. The Pauly Shore Stands Alone trailer can be watched after the jump.

Tokyo Tribe

I want you to go get a piece or paper or open the Notes program on your phone and write down two words: Tokyo Tribe. You’re going to want tangible proof you knew about one of the craziest, most surprising, surreal fun films of the year well before anyone else.

Tokyo Tribe is directed by Shion Sono, a director whose films (Love Exposure, Cold Fish) are usually pretty brutal. For the most part, this one isn’t. In fact, it’s the opposite. Tokyo Tribe is a hip hop musical about gang wars in Tokyo filled with sex, action, rapping and more rapping. Think Les Miserables if it were populated by The Warriors, who acted like they were in a kung-fu version of Beat Street, with the visual aesthetic of Spring Breakers. Set in an Eighties. That almost describes Tokyo Tribe, a film I loved to no end. Read More »

Legendary Pictures has been trying to mount The Great Wall for sometime and now they might just have the two men to do it. Matt Damon and Bryan Cranston are in talks to star in the Zhang Yimou directed period epic which will “reveal the legend behind a great mystery of our age: why this magnificent structure came to be.”

Edward Zwick was originally going to direct the film with Henry Cavill, but it never quite came together. A new script by Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) seems to have put thing back in motion though. Read more about The Great Wall movie below. Read More »
