We haven’t seen too much from Fast & Furious 6 yet, but Universal has apparently chosen Super Bowl weekend to get the marketing push started in earnest. A few days ago, they revealed the full synopsis, and earlier this weekend they unveiled the first poster. Now, in the middle of the big game, we’ve finally gotten our first look at some footage in the form of a 60-second TV spot. Check it out after the jump.

It was announced earlier this week that Ben Affleck and longtime pal Matt Damon would reunite for a biopic about Whitey Bulger, with Casey Affleck set to co-star. We now have a more information about the younger Affleck’s part. He’ll be playing Bill Bugler, little brother of Whitey Bugler (Damon’s role). Unlike notorious gangster Whitey, Billy was an upstanding member of society — Korean war vet, lawyer, politician, and educator. He lost his post as the president of the University of Massachusetts in 2003 when he was found to have spoken with his fugitive brother in secret.
In addition to starring, Damon will also script the film; Affleck the Elder will direct and co-star. It’s unclear when exactly the picture will get off the ground, as both brothers and Damon have plenty of other projects on their plates. But they’ll have to get moving if they want to beat the two other Whitey Bulger movies in the works — there’s one in development with producer Graham King, who produced The Departed, and another titled Black Mass, which was scripted by Russell Gerwitz.

Howard Marks is the most famous and possibly most successful drug dealer in British history. His autobiography, Mr. Nice, has been turned into a film starring Rhys Ifans, and now there’s a new trailer that shows the film’s free-wheeling ’80s recreation in all its be-wigged glory. Read More »
Dario Argento‘s latest is Giallo, named for the mystery-horror genre that he is, or at least was, the undisputed master of. It stars Adrien Br0dy, Emmanuelle Seigner and Elsa Pataky. The film premiered at the Edinburgh Festival last month and is next scheduled to screen at Frightfest in August. I’ve been somewhat concerned about the film for a while now, with word bubbling up from even the most Argento-faithful that perhaps it doesn’t really work. Having said that, the trailer looks just the way it should. Check it out for yourself after the break.
