In 1980, six armed men stormed the Iranian Embassy in London, taking 26 people hostage at the diplomatic building in south Kensington. The SAS raid to rescue the hostages was broadcast live on British television, and became one of the most well-known sieges in recent British history. Now, the story will be shared with the rest of the world in the film adaptation 6 Days.

In 2015, Jonathan Perera‘s script for Miss Sloane made the 2015 Blacklist (a list of the best-unproduced screenplays). Not too long after making the list, it drew interest from director John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) and actress Jessica Chastain (The Martian). Chastain stars as a lobbyist in Madden’s latest film, which also features Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jon Lithgow (Love Is Strange), Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire), and more.
Below, watch the Miss Sloane trailer.

Last year, director 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott found plenty of success and critical acclaim with their sci-fi survival drama The Martian. The film ended up landing a Best Picture nomination as well as a Best Actor nod for Matt Damon. Now a little more drama is coming to the red planet with Approaching the Unknown, a new sci-fi thriller that sends Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Kick-Ass) on a one-man, one-way mission to Mars. In the trailer, he says he’s going to Mars to live, but he might also be going there to chill until the bad taste from The Brothers Grimsby has washed away.

If you paid attention to the press tour for last year’s latest James Bond mission in Spectre, then you know that Daniel Craig wasn’t exactly eager to return to work as 007 anytime soon. During one interview, Craig said that he would rather slit his wrists then go make another James Bond movie at that point. He pulled back on those comments a bit later on The Today Show:
If you’re 200 yards from the end of a marathon and someone comes running up to you and says, ‘Are you going to run another marathon?’ there’s two words you use, and not on a morning show.
However, if Daniel Craig’s close, personal friend and fellow actor Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Kingsman: The Secret Service), who just happens to be the godfather to Craig’s eldest son, is going to be believed, then the British actor may actually be done with his time on Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Find out more about whether or not Daniel Craig is quitting James Bond below. Read More »

Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes is a perfectly enjoyable movie. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law make for a charming Sherlock and Watson, Hans Zimmer‘s playful score is an immense pleasure, and Ritchie’s eye is energetic and stylish enough. While Avatar was killing it at the box-office back in 2009, Sherlock Holmes was also winning over audiences.
How does the film holdup since its release? Just fine, but this “Everything Wrong With Sherlock Holmes in 13 Minutes or Less” points out a few of the conveniences, noticeable leaps in logic, and more.

After making a huge splash by bringing his small screen character Borat to the big screen in one of the most unique and hilarious comedies of the past 20 years (despite endless quotes from everyone nearly ruining it), Sacha Baron Cohen hasn’t exactly captured the magic of that feature film outing, but he’s not giving up.
The latest comedy from the creator and star of Da Ali G Show is The Brothers Grimsby, a conventional action comedy starring Mark Strong as one of the greatest spies working today, who suddenly finds his career and life in jeopardy when his estranged, screw-up of a brother shows up to reconnect with him. A new Brothers Grimsby red band trailer has just surfaced, taking full advantage of the roster of characters Cohen has played before in order to help audiences get interested in this new one.

The Brothers Grimsby, or Grimsby, depending on which side of the Atlantic you call home, certainly sounds amusing enough. Mark Strong is England’s top spy, an unstoppable James Bond type with all of the skills you’d find in a movie action hero. Sacha Baron Cohen is his loser brother, a disgusting soccer hooligan. Naturally, the two of them are thrust together to save the world from a villainous plot of some kind. But in terms of execution… Well, let’s just say that the marketing hasn’t been particularly inspiring.
Sony has released a batch of new clips from the film, as well as a few “red band TV spots” (how is that a thing?), to promote the film’s U.K. release. Hence the Grimsby instead of The Brothers Grimsby. You can check them out below, if that sounds like your kind of thing.

By the time The Brothers Grimsby opens up next spring, it will have been six years since Sacha Baron Cohen starred in a movie, though he did have a cameo in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. And this time, he’s bringing Mark Strong with him for the extremely British action comedy.
A new The Brothers Grimsby trailer has just arrived, and this time it doesn’t just show how Cohen screws everything up for his previously estranged government assassin brother, but also how he tries to help him by giving him a place to hide out. Beware that although this isn’t a red band trailer, you do see Cohen’s bare butt with a firework sticking out of it. Read More »

A few weeks ago, Marvel Studios hit Jimmy Kimmel Live with the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Shortly afterward, Warner Bros. followed suit with the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now it’s Sony’s turn, and they’ve brought… The Brothers Grimsby?
The action-comedy directed by Louis Leterrier stars Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong as brothers separated at childhood. Sebastian (Strong) grew to be an elite MI6 agent, while Nobby (Baron Cohen) became a small-town soccer hooligan. When Nobby finally tracks down Sebastian, he accidentally sets off a chain of events that send the brothers on the run. Watch The Brothers Grimsby trailer after the jump. Read More »
