Like the seasonal return of locusts, Nicolas Sparks is back. It would be unfair to call Sparks movies a plague — there’s an audience for every movie — but films based on Sparks novels are certainly numerous, and now there’s one more that you can struggle to distinguish from the rest. The new film is The Choice, which features Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, and Tom Welling in the story of a romance that spans years and tries to overcome tragedy.
The Choice trailer showcases so many of the elements we’ve come to take as given in a Sparks movie: pretty young leads, a romantic triangle, golden North Carolina landscapes, and that one horrible event that changes everything. Check out the footage below. Read More »

The new Point Break trailer reveals a wrinkle in the film’s plot: the criminals being tracked by young FBI agent Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) may be using a search for enlightenment to as an excuse for their Robin Hood-like crimes. So all the extreme sports stuff in this new movie, which takes the scope of the action way beyond surfing (but also includes insane surfing) is part of a grand quest. Whether or not skateboarding off the bow of a yacht (as seen above) is part of that, I’m not sure.
Point Break also stars Édgar Ramírez as the new version of Bodhi, and also features Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo. Check out the new trailer below. Read More »
Here’s your first Point Break remake trailer, showing off the new version of the 1991 movie that starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. Point Break now features much more than surfing. Indeed, Warner Bros. trumpets that this film has “the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture,” with stunts “performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.”
But wait! There are actors in the film, too. Édgar Ramírez (Zero Dark Thirty, Carlos) stars as the daredevil criminal Bodhi, while Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is young FBI agent Johnny Utah. Ray Winstone (Noah), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo (Gone in Sixty Seconds) are in the film, too. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
In the thriller Cut Bank, Liam Hemsworth plays a guy living in the so-called coldest spot in the United States. Naturally, he wants out. When he captures video of a murder, he gets the idea to use that video as his ticket out of town. And naturally, that doesn’t go so well. If that all sounds like it has the potential for a real Coen Brothers sort of vibe, the trailer will sell that idea even further. This Cut Bank trailer is great — it’s cut with a catchy, rhythmic and percussive attitude.
We don’t know if the film is also good, but the cast is hard to argue with (Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, seen above, and Oliver Platt) and having A24 as the film’s distributor suggests good things. This could all be taking place just down the road from Fargo; have a look. Read More »
Kill Me Three Times stars Simon Pegg as an assassin. Already, you’re probably interested. But Kill Me Three Times apparently has much, much more to offer than just that. Directed by Kriv Stenders, the film stars Pegg as an assassin hired by a husband (Callan Mulvey) to kill his wife (Alice Braga). The problem is, Pegg isn’t the only assassin on the lady’s tail. An assassin team, Sullivan Stapleton and Teresa Palmer, are also trying to kill her and that seems like the first of a multitude of escalating issues for everyone involved.
The film hits iTunes and on demand March 26 before going to theaters April 10. Now, the first Kill Me Three Times trailer has been released. Check out the hilarious, NSFW trailer below. Read More »

The remake of Point Break may have been delayed slightly when Gerard Butler dropped out, but it is quickly gathering steam once more. And the cast, at least, is shaping up to be interesting. Édgar Ramírez, Luke Bracey and Ray Winstone have been announced in the past few weeks. Now Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) has signed on to play the lead female role. Read More »
Briefly: John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Proposition) can dredge whatever material he wants up out of the depths of his mind and it probably won’t generate the ridiculous controversy set in motion by his thoroughly non-controversial Super Bowl Coke ad. So the film Triple Nine, about “a group of crooked cops who plan to kill one of their own so they can cover up a major heist,” probably won’t move the needle in a way even vaguely like the Coke ad did.
But it will have a great cast: Kate Winslet has signed on for the long-gestating picture. She joins a cast that still includes Casey Affleck and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who have been attached to the film for a while. Matt Cook scripted, and as far as we know his draft remains the basis for the film. [Variety]
Update: Michael B. Jordan, who had been linked to the film last year, has also been confirmed as being in talks, and Deadline reports that Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Gal Gadot, and Michael Pena are also in talks to join.
Most of us know Simon Pegg as a goofball. Even when he’s being serious and kicking ass, he still has incredible comic timing. His latest role, though, sounds like it’ll go against that. He’s headlining an ensemble cast in the Australian crime drama Kill Me Three Times, directed by Kriv Stenders and written by James McFarland. Pegg plays an assassin trying to kill a singer, with the story told from three different points of view.
Among the actors who’ll fill out the other stories are Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Luke Hemsworth (brother of Liam and Chris), Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire), Alice Braga (Elysium), Bryan Brown (Cocktail) and Callan Mulvey (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Read More »
