Normally, movies that don’t make $100 million worldwide don’t get sequels. And they definitely don’t get TV shows. But Mark Wahlberg isn’t your typical actor/producer. He’s now teamed up with Paramount TV to bring his 2007 film, Shooter, to TNT as a regular series.
The film, which itself was based on the novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter, follows a decorated but retired military sniper who takes one last job. However, he’s framed for murder on the job and goes on the run. Read more about the Shooter TV show below. Read More »

Jason Reitman‘s latest film Men, Women & Children has screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, and we have compiled the tweets coming out of the first Press & Industry screening. Its a mix of mostly positive (18 people) but also negative (10 people), with some critics like Owen Gleiberman and Ed Douglas touting it as a complex return to form while others like Jeff Wells calling it “soulless” and Ben Lyons leaving the screening tweeting that the film made him “very, very angry…”. The public premiere happens at the Ryerson theatre tonight, and I expect we’ll see a more positive response from the non critic/industry audience.
Many didn’t respond to Reitman’s last film Labor Day, which I enjoyed – connecting with the coming of age stuff, which was filmed near my hometown and set in the period of my upbringing. But unlike Jason’s previous films, Labor Day didn’t have a lot to say about us. I’m excited for Men, Women & Children because it looks like its more in line with what I connected to in his previous films. You can read all of the compiled tweets and reviews after the jump.

At the moment, Paramount and Skydance are offering the bad guy role to Sean Harris, known for Prometheus, The Borgias, and other films such as the Red Riding series. We don’t know much about the new film, much less the Mission: Impossible 5 villain, but the details we have are below. Read More »
Its no secret, I’m a huge Jason Reitman fan. I’ve been following his career since his short films were released by Atom Films (remember that site?). His movies have dramatically changed my life, the amazing effect of powerful storytelling. I’m sadly not taking the trip to the Toronto International Film Festival this year, and will likely be missing the debut of his newest movie Men, Women & Children. The film, again, looks fantastic. I love how Reitman’s teaser trailers almost feel like their own short films/mood pieces, spotlighting characters, ideas and situations that resonate within all of us (you can watch the teaser trailer for Men, Women & Children here).
Jason’s teaser posters have also been some of the most artful marketing from big studios. Unfortunately it seems like the home video art and or theatrical one-sheet are more under the tight control of the marketing departments. The Men, Women & Children teaser poster is another great illustration. Hit the jump to check out the Men, Women & Children teaser poster.
