A great cast doesn’t guarantee a great movie (just look at Black Mass), but it certainly never hurts. And John Hillcoat‘s Triple 9 has got a fantastic one. The director of Lawless and The Road has brought together Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Clifton Collins Jr., Norman Reedus, and Gal Gadot for his new crime drama, about an impossible heist gone very, very badly awry. Watch the latest Triple 9 trailer after the jump. Read More »

Did Juan José Campanella‘s Secret in Their Eyes really need to get remade in English? Eh, probably not. But it happened anyway, so all we can really do now is hope for the best. At least there’s reason to be ever-so-slightly optimistic: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts, and Nicole Kidman head up the new cast, and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass) directs.
That’s a solid lineup, if you can look past how very unnecessary this project seems to be in the first place. So what will the new version have to offer that the old one didn’t? Maybe the new Secret in Their Eyes trailer will have some clues. Watch it after the jump. Read More »
Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind Lawless, The Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red Band Trailer now after the jump.

Even as our current James Bond suits up for his next adventure, fans have started talking about about who could, or should, replace Daniel Craig. In particular, there’s been much speculation about whether the next Bond could be played by a non-white actor for the first time in franchise history.
For his part, former Bond Pierce Brosnan says he sees “no reason” why we couldn’t have a black Bond. Meanwhile, Chiwetel Ejiofor (himself a popular fan pick for the role) suggests Michael Peña should be the next one to pick up 007’s signature Walther PPK. Read the Pierce Brosnan black James Bond comments after the jump. Read More »
There are plenty of people who are already sold on The Martian, the latest sci-fi drama from Ridley Scott. It’s one of our 30 Movies to Be Excited for Before the End of 2015, and the most recent trailer really showed how good it looks.
But 20th Century Fox still has a little over a month to go before the film hits theaters, and they’re continuing their impressive viral marketing campaign with yet another cool video focusing on the crew of the Ares 3, another manned mission to the surface of Mars. This time, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examines the upcoming mission in the style of the recent Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series.

You could argue that Juan José Campanella‘s 2009 Argentinian thriller Secret in Their Eyes didn’t really need an English-language remake, and you’d probably be right. But as far as unnecessary remakes go, this one actually looks pretty promising.
Directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), the new Secret in Their Eyes stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, and Julia Roberts as three FBI colleagues whose lives were torn apart by a brutal murder. Many years later, Ray (Ejiofor) gets a lead that could finally resolve the case, only to uncover something even more destructive. See the Secret in Their Eyes trailer and images after the jump.

Margot Robbie finds herself at the center of her own post-apocalyptic love triangle in the first trailer for Z for Zachariah. But being that she may literally be the last woman on earth, the stakes are a bit higher than your usual Team Peeta vs. Team Gale shenanigans.
The trouble starts when Ann (Robbie) makes the startling discovery that another person (Chiwetel Ejiofor) has survived the mysterious catastrophe that left her alone. The two of them forge a bond, but it’s disrupted when yet another person (Chris Pine) enters the mix. Watch the first Z for Zachariah trailer after the jump. Read More »
When you think post-apocalyptic movies, you probably think about action. You think zombies, or destruction. You probably don’t conjure up water wheels, a turkey dinner, and romance. But that’s what you get with Z for Zachariah. Directed by Craig Zobel (Compliance), the film is almost an anti-post-apocalyptic movie as it’s much more concerned with human relationships than anything else going out around them. With a cast including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and Chris Pine, that’s both a blessing and a curse. Read more of our Z for Zachariah review below. Read More »
