Christmas came and went last week in the real world, but in the first Everly trailer the holiday has just arrived. And it’s not looking very merry or bright for the poor title character.
Salma Hayek leads the Joe Lynch-directed actioner as a call girl who’s become a police informant. Needless to say, this doesn’t sit well with her mob boss ex (Hiroyuki Watanabe). He sends a string of killers to her apartment in order to finish off her and her family, forcing Everly to defend herself in any way she can. The film hits VOD in January then theaters in February but you can watch the Everly trailer after the jump. Read More »
With Everly, director Joe Lynch answers the age old question, just how much action can you stage in a single room? The answer, not surprising, is a lot. Salma Hayek is the title character, a hooker turned informant who has just been discovered by her employer. Her mission is to stay alive over the next few hours in hopes she can save her family. And over that time, she’ll be forced to stay in the apartment because of the seemingly non-stop barrage of people coming to kill her.
Written by Yale Hannon, from a story by he and Lynch, Everly sounds like a pretty simple movie and it is. It’s also a Christmas movie, giving this one woman vs. the world, in a confined space, film a decidedly and deliberate Die Hard vibe. The film never reaches the heights of that classic, but it keeps us suitably engaged because we never ever know what’s going to come through that door next. Read the rest of our Everly review below.

The Hall H lineup tends to consist of movies that are already getting a lot of hype, but every year there are a few under-the-radar projects that get their moment in the sun as well. One of the latter this year was Everly, described by director Joe Lynch as “Die Hard in a room.” Which I suppose makes Salma Hayek Bruce WIllis.
The action-packed thriller follows a woman who’s stuck in her apartment as her mob boss ex sends thugs to torment and kill her. The Everly Comic-Con panel included the first footage from the film, involving gangsters, grenades, and guns a-plenty. Hit the jump for our Everly footage description and Everly Comic-Con panel highlights.

Could romcom queen Kate Hudson be branching out at last? Earlier this week, she signed on for her first animated feature in DreamWorks’ Me & My Shadow, and she’s now gunning for action stardom with Everly. Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom) will direct from a 2010 Black List script by Yale Hannon. Hudson will play a woman trapped in her apartment as she fends off attacks from assassins hired by her ex, a ruthless mob boss.
Hudson is best known for her romantic comedy roles, like last year’s Little Bit of Heaven and Something Borrowed, but her upcoming slate shows a little more variety. In addition to Me & My Shadow and Everly, she also has Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist due out next year.
After the jump, Piper Perabo fights a bear and Common does magic.
