The November Man trailer

Even though Pierce Brosnan only did four James Bond movies, and maybe only one great one, he’ll forever be connected to the character. Whenever he plays a role with any kind of Bond connotation, it almost feels like another adventure of 007. The Thomas Crowne Affair and After the Sunset are two examples and now there’s a third: The November Man.

Directed by Roger Donaldson (Species, Cocktail), it tells the story of a retired CIA man (Brosnan) forced back into action when an important asset (Olga Kurylenko) is threatened. The hunt makes him the target of the people he was once sworn to protect.

Based on the November Man book series by Bill Granger, The November Man opens August 27. Watch the second, and full, November Man trailer below. Read More »

A dozen years after his last outing as Bond, Pierce Brosnan is getting back into the spy game in The November Man. He even has a former Bond Girl accompanying him, Quantum of Solace‘s Olga Kurylenko.

But the first trailer for the Roger Donaldson-directed thriller feels a bit more melancholy than your average 007 adventure. There are lots of shots of men coolly walking away from big explosions, sure, but there’s also a sad little speech about how “love has no place in this life.” Watch the November Man trailer and see some images after the jump.

The Best of Me

Death is a staple of Nicholas Sparks romances, and that’s as true as ever in his latest movie adaptation The Best of Me. This time, the Grim Reaper conveniently provides an excuse to bring two high school sweethearts back together.

Rich girl Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks boy Dawson (James Marsden) haven’t seen each other in twenty years when they reunite at the funeral of a mutual friend. Sparks fly, but lots of obstacles stand in their way because there would be no movie otherwise. Hit the jump to watch the first The Best of Me trailer.

‘Point Break’ Remake Casts Its New Keanu Reeves

Luke Bracey

Briefly: Yes, that Point Break remake is actually moving forward. Ericson Core (Invincible) is directing the film, which currently has Gerard Butler attached as bank robbing surfer Bodhi, a role originally played by Patrick Swayze.

Bodhi’s nemesis/partner Johnny Utah, a role originated by Keanu Reeves, will now be played by relative newcomer Luke Bracey. Bracey played the masked role of Cobra Commander in last year’s G.I. Joe Retaliation. The film will retain the same basic premise as the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow original, but except just surfing, it’s set in the world of extreme sports. [Variety]
