Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for the thriller Captive. Based on true events, the film has Kate Mara as Ashley Smith, a struggling mother and recovering drug addict whose bad day takes a turn for the much, much worse when she’s taken hostage by accused rapist Brian Nichols (played by David Oyelowo).

There’s no denying the impressive talent behind the new movie The Gambler. It is directed by Rupert Wyatt, the man behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes, directing his first film since that hit. William Monahan, the Oscar-winning writer of The Departed, scripted The Gambler based on a 1974 starring James Caan, originally written by James Toback. This time, Mark Wahlberg is the lead character, acting opposite Brie Larson, John Goodman, Michael K. Williams and Jessica Lange.
So yeah, that’s an impressive line up, would you agree? The Gambler is about a college professor (Wahlberg) with a deep-seated gambling problem who, instead of fighting his debt, seemingly has a death wish to go deeper and deeper. It opens December 25. Below, we’ll tell you more about it and premiere some brand new stills from the movie. Read More »
