Deadwood is one of the many HBO shows that had its life cut too short. Ever since the series was canceled, there have been talks of creator David Milch wrapping the series up with a film.

Below, check out the latest Deadwood movie update from actor Ian McShane.

Martin McDonagh‘s In Bruges pulled out one of the best performances of Colin Farrell’s career, and surrounded him with memorable turns by Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes. His follow-up Seven Psychopaths brought another great turn out of Farrell and then unleashed the likes of Christopher Walken and Michael Stuhlbarg in a slew of colorful roles.
It’s no wonder, then, that top-notch stars seem to be lining up around the block to star in his next film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. But that doesn’t mean it’s not impressive. Frances McDormand was locked in at the lead last fall, and since then Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, and Caleb Landry Jones have also signed on. Now you can add Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, and Lucas Hedges to the growing list of top-notch talents. Read More »
A film with Anton Yelchin, Zooey Deschanel, Aubrey Plaza, John Hawkes, Frank Langella, Alia Shawkat, and Ciarán Hinds shouldn’t be flying so far under the radar. The Driftless Area premiered last spring at the Tribecca Film Festival, where it was met with mixed reviews. Based on the trailer for the surreal crime love story, it’s easy to see why.

Mountain climbing on its own can be quite a dangerous activity, but it gets infinitely worse when you decide to climb the highest mountain on the planet. And that’s made abundantly clear in a new international trailer for Everest.
The mountain-climbing drama takes an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal and hikes them up Mount Everest, which sits at the cruising altitude of a 747 according to the trailer. However, it’s not getting to Everest that proves to be the more dangerous part. It’s getting home.

This fall brings the terrifying elements of the highest mountain on the planet to the big screen in the mountain climbing drama Everest starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal and more.
While it would be easy to shoot an entire film like this on a sound stage and use visual effects to complete the scenery, director Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns, Contraband) wanted the cast to experience the elements firsthand by shooting on location in Nepal on the foothills of Everest, as well as the Italian Alps. Now an Everest featurette shows what that was like for the stars of the film, and you can watch it below. Read More »
Featuring one of the most impressive casts of the year, director Baltasar Kormákur is ready to take audiences to one of the most frightening and mythic places on the globe: Everest. The new film, which stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal, opens September 18.
Based on true events, Everest tells the story two teams attempt to reach the summit of the mountain in one of the most violent snowstorms ever recorded. Kormákur shot the film in real conditions and IMAX 3D to give the viewer an experience almost as harrowing as the real people. Did he succeed? Check out the first Everest trailer below. Read More »

It’s been a bad year for Elle Fanning and cinematic father figures. Her Maleficent dad sent her away as a baby, and her Boxtrolls dad mostly just neglects her. Her streak will continue with Low Down, in which John Hawkes finds himself torn between his love for her, his passion for music, and his addiction to heroin.
Directed by Jeff Preiss, the indie drama debuted at Sundance this year and is now headed for a theatrical release thanks to Oscilloscope. Also starring are Glenn Close, Taryn Manning, Flea, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage — which means we might actually get to see the two Lannister sibs share a scene without trying to kill each other. Watch the first Low Down trailer after the jump.

Before Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, much of the conversation surrounded Joseph Gordon-Levitt being Robin. Rumors said “Yes,” other sources said “No,” and in the end the answer was, kind of, both. His name was Robin, but not the Batman sidekick we all remember.
Those talks are about to begin again thanks to Latino-Review. Their latest report is Batman vs. Superman, directed by Zack Snyder, will feature Dick Grayson, the real identity of Robin/Nightwing. Read More »
