There’s a new Transporter series in production. The picture being made now is called Transporter Legacy and stars Ed Skrein as the character originated by Jason Statham in 2002. Game of Thrones fans will recognize Skrein as the original actor who played the mercenary Daario Naharis in the series’ third season. In fact, this new Transporter series is the reason Skrein dropped out of Game of Thrones.
The new film is planned as the first chapter in a new trilogy. Luc Besson’s company EuropaCorp is behind the new series (the company also made the original films) and a deal is in place with Relativity Media to release the film and theoretical sequels in the US. Read More »

Even though Pierce Brosnan only did four James Bond movies, and maybe only one great one, he’ll forever be connected to the character. Whenever he plays a role with any kind of Bond connotation, it almost feels like another adventure of 007. The Thomas Crowne Affair and After the Sunset are two examples and now there’s a third: The November Man.
Directed by Roger Donaldson (Species, Cocktail), it tells the story of a retired CIA man (Brosnan) forced back into action when an important asset (Olga Kurylenko) is threatened. The hunt makes him the target of the people he was once sworn to protect.
Based on the November Man book series by Bill Granger, The November Man opens August 27. Watch the second, and full, November Man trailer below. Read More »

A dozen years after his last outing as Bond, Pierce Brosnan is getting back into the spy game in The November Man. He even has a former Bond Girl accompanying him, Quantum of Solace‘s Olga Kurylenko.
But the first trailer for the Roger Donaldson-directed thriller feels a bit more melancholy than your average 007 adventure. There are lots of shots of men coolly walking away from big explosions, sure, but there’s also a sad little speech about how “love has no place in this life.” Watch the November Man trailer and see some images after the jump.

Death is a staple of Nicholas Sparks romances, and that’s as true as ever in his latest movie adaptation The Best of Me. This time, the Grim Reaper conveniently provides an excuse to bring two high school sweethearts back together.
Rich girl Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks boy Dawson (James Marsden) haven’t seen each other in twenty years when they reunite at the funeral of a mutual friend. Sparks fly, but lots of obstacles stand in their way because there would be no movie otherwise. Hit the jump to watch the first The Best of Me trailer.

These days it feels like every horror movie can be easily categorized. Either it’s a possession movie, a found footage movie, a slasher movie or some inane combination. Finding something different is rare. Mike Flanagan‘s Oculus, at the very least, strives to be different. Combining elements from several subgenre columns into something that feels new and fresh, Oculus is the story of a brother and sister who try to destroy a haunted mirror that drives people to wild hallucinations, blurring lines between what’s real and what’s not.
Flanagan’s script is a psychological jumping bean as it hops wildly between multiple timelines, putting the audiences in the shoes of the characters, everyone totally unaware of precisely what’s going on. The whole thing has a fluid feeling that’s not exactly innovative, but exciting enough to potentially kick off a new franchise. Read more of our Oculus movie review below. Read More »
