Gunman trailer

Taken director Pierre Morel has recruited a pretty amazing roster of dudes for his latest film The Gunman: Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone and Mark Rylance all feature in the movie. The story, despite being based on a well-regarded novel, looks like boilerplate stuff, as Penn is a special ops sniper who is targeted by his own group and, as a defense, threatens to expose all their covert actions. In this Gunman trailer there’s some real serious face from Penn, some grandstanding by Bardem, and Winstone and Elba playing the wise and maybe-helpful voices. Oh, and of course there’s (sigh) a kidnapped woman (Jasmine Trinca) to add some extra urgency. Check out The Gunman trailer after the break. Read More »

Avengers: Age of Ultron: Thor goes after Tony Stark

Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be big. Very big. Even the first teaser trailer hints at things we weren’t quite sure we’d see in a Marvel movie. Captain America’s shield broken, Steve Rogers somehow in the past, Iron Man fighting The Hulk, Black Panther references, etc. And, of course, some of that stuff can be explained when you look at the Phase 3 plans. Others can’t though and now a few more seemingly inexplicable, but awesome, news has been revealed.

Keeping it vague, a very popular actor who has previously appeared in the MCU did an interview and revealed that he (or she) has a role in Avengers: Age of Ultron and he (or she) is joined by another popular actor who has previously appeared in the MCU. If these Avengers Age of Ultron cameos are true, it’s a spoiler, so be aware. Read More »

Idris Elba Beasts of No Nation

That shot above pictures Idris Elba in Luther, but below we have the first image of the actor in Beasts of No Nation, the new film from Cary Fukunaga. The director has a couple of features under his belt, the great Sin Nombre and a worth-watching adaptation of Jane Eyre. But it was HBO’s True Detective that made a lot more people aware of Fukunaga. Regardless, we’re excited to see his next effort, and this first shot only enhances our anticipation.  Read More »

No Good Deed trailer

Idris Elba was quite the big screen hero last year. He battled kaiju in Pacific Rim, defended Asgard in Thor: The Dark World, and inspired a nation in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. But he’s taking a villainous turn with his next film, No Good Deed.

Directed by Sam Miller (Elba’s Luther), the thriller stars Elba as escaped convict Colin. He winds up at the home of a stranger named Terri (Taraji P. Henson), pleading for help, but then terrorizes her family once she lets him in. Sort of like Labor Day, only twisted and violent instead of sensual and romantic. Watch the No Good Deed trailer after the jump.
