It’s a big day for Josh Brolin. Not only was he revealed as the actor voicing Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and future Marvel films, he’s booked a gig in one of the next films from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve. The movie in question is Sicario, a “dark, morally complex thriller about a Tucson cop (Emily Blunt) who teams up with two men to head into Mexico and capture a drug lord” scripted by Taylor Sheridan.

We saw a tease of Marvel’s big bad Thanos at the end of The Avengers, but the purple-skinned alien has been absent from the screen since then. What we do know is he’s in Guardians of the Galaxy, and there is reason to believe he plays a part in the eventual third Avengers film as well. (He is not a big part of Age of Ultron, according to Joss Whedon.) We also know the actor who played Thanos in that Avengers post-credits stinger won’t play him in upcoming movies. So who will?
Latino Review reporst Oscar-nominated actor Josh Brolin, star of The Goonies, W., No Country For Old Men, Oldboy and more is playing the baddest man in the galaxy. Read more about Thanos Guardians of the Galaxy below. Read More »

Nearly a decade has passed since the last time we dropped in on Sin City, but it doesn’t look like a whole lot has changed since then. Life looks as grim and brutal as ever in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which follows four noirish storylines as they unfold across the city.
Today, we have five new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For character posters to (re)introduce you the town’s gun-toting, knife-wielding residents, including Nancy (Jessica Alba), Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson), Dwight (Josh Brolin) and Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Check ’em out after the jump.

To fans, there are certain aspects of Spike Lee‘s Oldboy that have to be consistent with Chan-wook Park’s original. One of those is the hallway scene. In the original, Oh Dae-su wreaks havoc on a bunch of thugs in a hallway with nothing but a hammer. And it’s breathtaking sequence. Having seen trailers for the new film, you know the fight is in there; having seen the entire movie, I’ll say it takes the idea up a level. Literally.
In fact, Josh Brolin, who stars in the film, said the scene was so crucial and physically demanding, his personal physical preparation for just that scene (which is presented in one long take) informed his entire performance. Lee and crew prepped the scene for five weeks and they got it on the seventh take. Read Brolin’s story about the scene below. Read More »

I got a press release earlier today that describes the new Spike Lee film, Oldboy, as “a unique reinterpretation of the 2003 Korean film,” with that ’03 movie being the Park Chan-wook effort that turned the director into a globally-popular filmmaker. That’s a slightly new way to position a remake.
We’ve seen so many clips, violent glimpses, and featurettes for the film that a new trailer feels like it is coming in very late. And, in fact, this “new” trailer is basically the red-band one that landed over the summer, with a few changes to make it suitable for all audiences. A couple bits of explicit violence are gone, as are two or three butt shots. In fact, one butt shot from the original trailer has been digitally altered for this one. Look for it below! Read More »

Spike Lee‘s remake of Oldboy is quickly approaching, and with it come answers to innumerable questions. Paramount among those questions is “Will American audiences want to see such a brutal, visceral story after eating their Thanksgiving dinners?” Based on this violent clip, it seems like a hard sell.
Josh Brolin stars as Joe Doucett, an unlikeable salesman who is mysteriously imprisoned for twenty years. He’s then just as mysteriously released, and hellbent on finding out who could do such a horrible thing. Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Imperioli are along for the ride.
We’ve seen plenty of images, trailers and much more but this latest video – not a trailer, but not quite a full scene – shows a bit of what Doucett does in captivity for twenty years, and the hammer filled rage he has upon release. Check it out below. Read More »

We’re very happy to exclusively premiere a special online trailer for director Jason Reitman‘s latest film Labor Day. The theatrical trailer will premiere later today, but first take a look at this alternate online trailer — You may remember that Jason also let us premiere that amazing Up in the Air “bag” online-exclusive teaser — still one of my favorite trailers of recent years.
In Labor Day, Kate Winslet delivers an award-worthy performance as a depressed single mother, who along with her young teenage son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) have their lives changed forever when they offer a wounded man a ride. The man (played by Josh Brolin) turns out to be an escaped convict, who takes the family hostage during Labor Day weekend. Watch the whole trailer embedded after the jump.
Update: We’ve added the theatrical trailer below, too.

Jason Reitman‘s new film, Labor Day, opens on Christmas Day, and it will be promoted via a new trailer on Halloween. That trailer hits at 9am PST tomorrow, and as a precursor we have a new poster. The film features Josh Brolin as an escaped convict who is taken into the home of a reclusive woman (Kate Winslet) and her son.
While the first poster and image (above) featured Brolin and Winslet in an ambiguous pose — is he protecting or threatening her? — this new poster uses a similar pose to communicate a more specific connection between the characters. Read More »

At the risk of limiting the audience for this article, I’d say that the featurette below is really best for those who have seen Park Chan-wook’s original Oldboy. Fortunately, that’s probably most of our readers.
This piece is about the stuff Josh Brolin went through to play the role — rapid weight gain and weight loss, and the physical work — but it also shows some footage we haven’t seen before, of the prison in which his character is held captive for 20 years, and of the film’s violence. This is one for the people who continue to wonder just how close Spike Lee‘s film is to the original. Read More »
