CHILD 44

Tom Hardy has never met an accent he didn’t like, whether it’s Bostonian in The Drop, Welsh in Locke, or whatever the hell he’s doing in The Dark Knight Rises. In his new movie Child 44, he gets to take midcentury Russian out for a spin.

Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), the thriller follows police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy) in Soviet-era Russia. When he begins investigating a serial killer who targets young boys, he attracts the wrath of the state, which refuses to acknowledge the crimes at all.

Noomi Rapace plays Leo’s wife Raisa, Gary Oldman is General Mikhail Nesterov, and Joel Kinnaman is Leo’s rival. Jason ClarkePaddy Considine, and Vincent Cassel also star. Watch the Child 44 trailer after the jump. Read More »

Robert Downey Jr captain america

The Last of Us

We’re still not sure quite what to expect from The Last of Us movie, announced by Screen Gems last year. But fans of the original video game should be glad to hear screenwriter Neil Druckmann say he’ll stay “pretty faithful” to the source material — albeit with a few “big changes.”

Druckmann also offered a more general status update on the script, which he says has already gone through a table read with actors. No word yet on whether a certain fan-favorite actress was among them. Hit the jump for more on The Last of Us movie changes.  Read More »

best hacking movies

Bad hacking is everywhere in movies, but there are a handful of films that actually get it right. The problem is that the good stuff isn’t very interesting to look at. Real hackers don’t use virtual reality setups, and they don’t act like Hugh Jackman in Swordfish. Val Kilmer’s line in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is pretty perfect, even though he’s describing being a private detective: “This business, in real life? It’s boring.”

So we don’t see a lot of good hacking on the big screen. Basic terminal windows and UNIX command-line prompts aren’t much to look at. But real (or real enough) stuff shows up on occasion, along with other techniques that work in the real world. They include something as simple as guessing passwords (check out the list of the most commonly-used passwords to realize how easy that can be) and go all the way through various forms of social engineering.

After the break you’ll find not a ranked list of good hackers, but a chronological exploration of movies that show hacking as it is in real life. (Kind of.) What you’ll see is that the good film hackers are pretty consistent, and haven’t changed much through a few decades of filmmaking. Read More »
