The Guardians (foreign title “Zaschitniki”) is Russia’s attempt at a Marvel Avengers-style superhero blockbuster. Directed by Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan and starring Sebastien Sisak, Anton Pampuchniy, Sanzhar Madiev, Alina Lanina, Valeria Shkirando and Stanislav Shirin, the story follows a secret group of Soviet superheroes named “Patriot” created during the Cold War to defend the homeland from supernatural threats. The team is comprised of representatives of the different nationalities of the Soviet Union. But really all you need to know is the movie features a bear-man shooting a huge Gatling gun. Watch The Guardians trailer now after the jump to see what Russia’s big superhero team-up blockbuster looks like.

Robert Zemeckis‘ last movie, The Walk, sank down and disappeared without a trace, but maybe his next one will have better luck staying afloat. It surely helps that Allied boasts the combined beauty and star power of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, who play spies in World War II. They’re assigned to work together as pretend husband and wife, but as invariably happens with these situations in the movies, they start to fall in love for real. Watch the first

Stand up and cheer, Christopher Nolan is back. While the director’s last few films have seen him grappling with space travel, dream manipulation, and high-tech superheroes, his new film Dunkirk is grounded in gritty history. The title refers to the French seaport of Dunkirk, where 330,000 Allied troops were evacuated in 1940 during World War II.
Today Warner Bros. released the first teaser for the new movie from Nolan — or as One Direction fans might now it, the film that forced Harry Styles to cut his hair. Watch it below. Read More »

We’re only three months away from seeing another Robert Zemeckis film. Allied has an Awards-friendly release date and stars Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, and Jared Harris. Making the WWII drama all the more promising, it’s also written by Steven Knight (Locke), whose new show, Taboo, comes to FX next year.

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Trailer: Andrew Garfield Won’t Fire a Gun, But Will Put on a Really Thick Southern Accent
Posted on Thursday, July 28th, 2016 by Angie Han
War movies are a common sight, and World War II is an especially popular choice of subject matter. But Hacksaw Ridge is one of the few you’ll ever see where a soldier emerges as the hero without firing a single bullet. Mel Gibson‘s first directorial effort in ten years stars Andrew Garfield as Desmond Doss, a real-life American soldier who refused to kill or even carry a gun due to his religious beliefs. Instead, he aided the war effort as a medic and saves the lives of dozens of his comrades. In 1945, Doss became the first-ever conscientious objector to win the Medal of Honor.
Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Hugo Weaving, and Teresa Palmer also star. Watch the Hacksaw Ridge trailer below. Read More »
Michael Sugar, who recently won an Academy Award for producing Spotlight, is attempting to bring EA’s Battlefield to the small screen. The video game franchise, which is very popular for its highly-addictive online multiplayer mode, was created in 2002, starting with Battlefield 1942. Since then, Battlefield has gained a following of 60 million players, and with a fanbase that massive, UTA and Paramount smell an opportunity.

Last year, I embarked on the ridiculous task of ranking every single Quentin Tarantino character and Christoph Waltz‘s Hans Landa, the scheming Nazi villain of Inglourious Basterds, landed in the number two spot. It turns out that Tarantino thinks more highly of this character than I do, since he has revealed that Landa is his personal favorite of every character he has created.

Mel Gibson hasn’t directed a feature film since 2006’s Apocalypto. The somewhat dated digital photography aside, that thrilling and brutal chase movie is arguably his best picture as a director (the film’s biggest fan, Robert Duval, likely agrees), but it’s far from his most successful, once you compare it to Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ‘s box-office numbers. Gibson has had great success as a filmmaker. His most recent performances, however, have failed to connect with audiences. As an actor, he’s not the draw he used to be, but will that stop moviegoers from seeing one of his directorial efforts? We’ll find out this November.
Below, check out the poster for his latest film, Hacksaw Ridge.
