Seven Psychopaths, directed by In Bruges writer/director and playwright Martin McDonagh, is one of my most-anticipated movies of 2012. (A list which, as predicated, is already completely in need of an update or revamp after Sundance.) The reason is simple: McDonagh has a unique and compelling voice, and the film features a killer cast: Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Tom Waits, Gabourey Sidibe, Abbie Cornish, and Olga Kurylenko.
We haven’t yet seen any footage from the movie, but here are the first images. And for those who haven’t tracked down the screenplay we’ve got some new details as well, which might do a little bit to enhance interest in the movie. Read More »
All’s been quiet on the Total Recall front as of late. The last post we put up regarding the Len Wiseman-directed reboot starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho, was a few set videos of hover crafts from the film. That was September. Now it’s January, the film is eight months away and Sony has released an official plot synopsis. Though we knew many of these details – i.e. There’s no Mars – it’s still pretty revealing. Read More »
Just a day ago I talked about Seven Psychopaths, the new movie from In Bruges director Martin McDonagh, because Mickey Rourke had proclaimed McDonagh to be a ‘jerkoff’ and refused to be in the film. McDonagh “wanted a whole lot for nothing,” the actor said, so he bailed.
Everything has worked out fine, as long as I’m concerned, however. Rourke is gone, but now Woody Harrelson has taken his role, and Olga Kurylenko and Tom Waits have also signed on to the film that already featured Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken. Read More »
Here’s another project announced at the American Film Market this week: Dead Man Down is an action thriller that will see Noomi Rapace working again with her The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev. Colin Farrell is signing on as well, for a film that is being sold as a “thrilling tale of vengeance.” Read More »
William Monahan, screenwriter of Kingdom of Heaven and Oscar-winning writer of The Departed, directed his first film back in 2009. London Boulevard opened quietly in the UK last year and is opening even more quietly in the States this fall.
The movie is an adaptation of a novel by Ken Bruen (who also wrote the books on which The Guard and Blitz were based) and stars Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley and Ray Winstone in a London-based gangster movie. Reviews haven’t been particularly good — hence the quiet opening — but the cast is top-notch and the material looks fun and difficult to resist despite the tepid reviews. Check out a new US trailer below and get a taste of the action. Read More »
So many set videos have surfaced from The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel it almost feels like they’re the only three movies currently in production. Obviously, that’s far from the case and another major 2012 event film has just been forced into the set video ring. That movie is Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho. Several photos popped online last month of robots walking around the set and now videos have surfaced that show a bunch of different hovercars on impressive rigs.
These videos, of course, should be considered minor spoilers. Click on the jump to check them out. Read More »
The new Fright Night, which remakes and updates Tom Holland’s enduring and entertaining 1985 film about a high school kid who finds that a vampire has moved into the house next door, is about vampires and feelings, but not vampires with feelings. That’s something that’s clear right off in conversations with the cast and crew of the film on location in New Mexico. Or, in other words, this isn’t Twilight.
We’re in the local Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, which doubles for the chain’s larger Vegas location. In the film, that’s the domain of stage magician and presumed vampire expert Peter Vincent (David Tennant). Tennant isn’t in the house, but most of the film’s major players are: Anton Yelchin, playing the hero Charley Brewster; Colin Farrell as Jerry Dandridge, the vampire next door; Imogen Poots as Charley’s new girlfriend Amy; and director Craig Gillespie, screenwriter Marti Noxon and effects guru Howard Berger. We only got to see a small bit of the film being shot, so after the break I’ll let the cast and crew give you the lowdown on this new version of Fright Night, in their own words. Read More »
