Fall 2015 Movie Preview

We’re well past the midpoint of the year, and we’ve already delivered our list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far. And as we reach the end of the summer, the movie business starts slowing down, giving a little calm before the storm that is awards season. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still tons of movies to look forward to before the end of the year.

That’s why we’ve collected a list of 30 Movies to Be Excited for Before the End of 2015. And since there are so many great movies coming up before the end of the year, this is the Blockbuster and Studio Edition of the list, and next week we’ll deliver a completely different list for independent movies. But until then, here’s a list of movies we think you won’t want to miss over the next four months. Read More »

new Legend trailer

It’s impossible to resist the idea of seeing Tom Hardy playing twins, and so we’re going to indulge our affinity for that idea with a new trailer for Legend, the UK gangster film in which Hardy plays Ron and Reggie Kray, the twins who became infamous as rulers of London’s underworld in the 1960s. The film comes from Brian Helgeland (who se credits include, among other things, being co-screenwriter of LA Confidential, and director of A Knight’s Tale and 42), who writes and directs based on the true story of the brothers’ wild lives. Check out the new Legend trailer after the break.  Read More »

Legend UK trailer

There’s a new Legend UK trailer, showing off the film featuring the dual performance from Tom Hardy that should satisfy even the most rabid fan of the actor.

And if you’ve not seen a prior trailer for Legend, Tom Hardy plays both Reggie and Ronnie Kray, the gangster twins who took over parts of London’s rackets in the ’60s. Hardy is smooth as the ambitious Reggie, and adopts a bit of the old Marlon Brando “cotton in the mouth” technique to play the violent Ronnie. This trailer has more story than the teaser, and new footage not seen in the last US trailer; have a look below. Read More »

Blade Runner 2

We frequently think of Ridley Scott as a master, a filmmaker with huge ambition and bigger talent who can bring any vision to the big screen. His resume certainly seems to confirm that. Space opera, war movies, period pieces, spy thrillers, Best Picture winners — he’s pretty much done them all. Still, out of the 22 films Scott has directed, including this week’s release Exodus: Gods and Kings, how many of them are actually good? What about great? It’s a pretty high percentage. Below, we rank the top 15 best Ridley Scott movies. Read More »

Brian Helgeland adapted a story of famed American gang dealings in L.A. Confidential, and now he’s going to chronicle an unusual and notorious pair of London mobsters. He’s set to write and direct Legend (title subject to change), in which Tom Hardy may end up playing identical twin brothers Ronald and Reginald Kray, who dominated the London crime scene in the ’60s before being sentenced to life in prison in 1968.

No, the guy who directed The Wackness and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is not remaking the Ridley Scott movie starring Tom Cruise and a unicorn. Too bad about that. He is, however, working with Twilight producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey to adapt Marie Lu‘s novel Legend to film. Read More »
