I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Unlocked was originally conceived over a decade ago – the trailer feels like something we’d be seeing in theaters around 2004 or so, at the height of Hollywood’s attempt to come to grips with the events of September 11, 2001. You have a heroic CIA interrogator (which has become something of an oxymoron) battling Islamic terrorists to prevent a biological attack in London. This thing looks like a throwback to the days when Jack Bauer was shooting out kneecaps and beating up ACLU lawyers on Fox’s 24. It feels positively ancient.
But maybe that’s part of the appeal? After all, 24 is back. Maybe it will be fun to watch Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom running around London shooting people while respected character actors furrow their brows in expository scenes where they have to talk about where bombs are located and who sold them out and so on. Maybe?

We last saw Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) almost six years ago in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a fairly bloated, lifeless and forgettable sequel. At the time, though, audiences welcomed the return of Jack Sparrow. The sequel made over a billion dollars worldwide, making Depp’s last legit hit. Now, almost 14 years after first playing the character, the actor is back as the shifty pirate.
Below, watch the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Super Bowl spot.

This past December marked the 15th anniversary of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first chapter in one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. Since that’s not exactly a celebratory, milestone anniversary, there wasn’t much pomp and circumstance. But a little over a month later, a mini-reunion of some of the members of the fellowship has taken place.
In what appears to be an impromptu reunion, Aragon (Viggo Mortensen), Frodo (Elijah Wood), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) all got together for a meal, and they took some time to snap a few pictures of the occasion as well. Check out the Lord of the Rings reunion photo after the jump. Read More »
Production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth film in the multi-billion dollar franchise, has been done for awhile now.

However, revealing who this returning cast member might be is a bit of a spoiler for those wanting to stay in the dark regarding any surprises, so you’ll have to find out who it is after the jump. Read More »

After finding success with low-key, naturalistic indies like Drinking Buddies and Happy Christmas, Joe Swanberg is back with what appears to be his biggest film yet. But because he’s Joe Swanberg, it’s still a pretty low-key, naturalistic indie. Digging for Fire stars Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt as an L.A. couple still getting used to parenthood.
While housesitting for a friend one weekend, the husband digs up a bone and a gun, sending him on a quest for answers. Meanwhile, the wife sets off on her own adventure involving a handsome stranger played by Orlando Bloom. Watch the Digging for Fire trailer after the jump. Read More »
