Simon Pegg in Star Trek Into Darkness

Last week brought a major rumor that Idris Elba would be playing a Klingon villain in Star Trek 3. So inevitably, this week brings a stringent denial of said rumor. Star Trek 3 star and writer Simon Pegg says in no uncertain terms that the talk isn’t true — the Klingon part of it, anyway. The Idris Elba part might still be.

Idris Elba star trek 3

In the rebooted Star Trek franchise, it’s all about the villains. Or at least pre-release, it is. Everyone knows who the main characters are but there’s always a question of who they’ll be tangling with. In the second film, the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s character was a particular spot of controversy. So that begs the question: will villain questions continue into part three?

The early answer to that question is “Yes.” Variety reports that Idris Elba is in early talks to play a villain in Star Trek 3. However, there are no details on who – or what – he could be playing. Directed by Justin Lin, the film is scheduled for release July 8, 2016. Read more about the Idris Elba Star Trek 3 news below. Read More »

The Gunman Sean Penn

It’ll be at least a couple years before Taken 4 comes out — if it ever does come out — but while we wait, The Gunman might be able to tide you over. Directed by Pierre Morel (of the first Taken), The Gunman stars Sean Penn as Jim Terrier, a former Special Forces soldier and military contractor suffering from PTSD.

All he wants is to reconnect with his love, but circumstances get in the way. He has information that has certain very dangerous people wanting him dead, and he goes on a globe-trotting mission to clear his name. Watch The Gunman international trailer after the jump. Read More »

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 »
