The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.
… Or so she thought. This is still Homeland we’re talking about, after all. It’s not long before Carrie gets sucked back into a web of international intrigue involving shady government organizations, hackers, black-ops agents, and a rather pissed off Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). Watch the Homeland Season 5 trailer after the jump. Read More »

With just a little over a couple weeks until 20th Century Fox brings the video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47 to theaters, a new global trailer has surfaced online, showing more of the wild action that Rupert Friend has taken over from the franchise’s previous star Timothy Olyphant.
This trailer shows a little more of the villainy that Zachary Quinto has in store after initially misleading a targeted woman (Hannah Ware) into thinking that Agent 47 wants to kill. But Quinto doesn’t want to protect her, he wants to use her, because she has a secret that she’s completely unaware of. Watch the Hitman Agent 47 trailer after the jump! Read More »

For years the enigmatic opening credits to Mad Men have provoked viewers into many entertaining questions. How literal is the opening animation meant to be? What does it mean for Don Draper, and by implication the rest of the characters? While the metaphoric thrust of the credits is evident to anyone who watches the show, it’s still fun to talk about.
Now a teaser for the new film Hitman: Agent 47 shows us the truth behind the Mad Men credits, just in time for the AMC show to broadcast its final leap into the sky. No surprise: in this conception, it isn’t a leap, but a violent fall. Read More »

Fox brought the new Hitman movie, Hitman: Agent 47, to Comic Con today via an understated panel that featured actors Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware. Rupert Friend, who plays the title character, an assassin introduced in the video game series from Eidos and Square Enix, was unable to attend Comic Con thanks to the shooting schedule for his primary gig, Homeland. Friend offered up a brief intro to the panel via a video message, and the panelists premiered a trailer that showed this new cinematic adaptation of the Hitman games. We can’t yet embed the trailer, but we can give you the panel rundown after the break. Read More »

Jack O’Connell is one of those young actors who’s right on the verge of breaking out. He’s not too well known in the U.S. yet (except maybe to U.K. Skins enthusiasts), but he’s on his way there, having come close to some high-profile projects like The Secret Service and Beautiful Creatures. And he should be much more famous by the end of this year, once 300: Rise of an Empire and Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken are through with him.
The film that marks the turning point in his career is Starred Up, a gritty British drama that earned raves upon its Telluride premiere last year. O’Connell plays young Eric Love, a 19-year-old who winds up incarcerated in the same prison that holds his dad, Neville (Ben Mendelsohn). David Mackenzie (Perfect Sense, Young Adam) directed, and Rupert Friend also stars. Watch the intriguing first trailer after the jump.

Before his death, Paul Walker was planning on going from Fast and Furious 7 to Agent 47. That film, originally thought to be a reboot of the video game adaptation Hitman, is in fact a sequel. Sequel or reboot though, Walker’s death left commercial director Aleksander Bach without a star.
Enter Rupert Friend, who has been seen on the last two seasons of Homeland as CIA Agent Peter Quinn. He’s now signed to replace Walker in the title role of a bald, elite assassin. Read More »

“The first casualty of war is innocence. Oops, the truth. I meant the first casualty of war is always the truth.”
Here’s the first trailer for Renny Harlin‘s 5 Days of War, which covers people trying to cover the war that broke out between Russia and Georgia in 2008. Serious topics aren’t exactly in the director’s wheelhouse; he’s best known for sequels (Die Hard 2, Nightmare on Elm St. 4) and the occasionally effective action movie (The Long Kiss Goodnight, Cliffhanger).
So I’ve been interested to see what comes of this slightly more serious project since it was announced in 2009. Harlin’s facility with action is certainly on display in this trailer, and I can’t really tell whether or not to have any expectations beyond that. Check it out below and make your own call.
