Peter Berg directing Patriots Day

Director Peter Berg is not one for wasting time. He says as much, but it’s also evident when you’re on the set of one of his movies, speaking with an actor he’s worked with, or talking to the man himself. Look no further than his filmography the last few years to see the borderline light-speed pace at which he works. He’s made four movies in the last two years, including his latest pic, Mile 22. Nobody could ever call Peter Berg lazy, that’s for certain.

His newest and fourth collaboration with Mark Wahlberg is a significantly lighter film than their past work. It’s Berg, who made a remarkable directorial debut with The Rundown, returning to straight-up action movies. The Kingdom director brings his eye for fast-paced, practical, and point-of-view-driven action to his new lean and mean action movie. Recently, Berg told us about filming Mile 22‘s action, his respect for Wahlberg’s work ethic, when we’ll see his Rihanna documentary, and more.

The ABC Murders

Kenneth Branagh played detective Hercule Poirot in last year’s Murder on the Orient Express and will soon be reprising the role in a sequel, but Branagh isn’t the only actor set to wear the character’s ludicrously large mustache. A new report says that John Malkovich will play the part in a new television adaptation of writer Agatha Christie‘s murder mystery novel The ABC Murders – and a Harry Potter star is set to join him.

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

Spider-Man 4

The cancellation of Spider-Man 4 still feels like a missed opportunity, especially after how The Amazing Spider-Man movies turned out. Sony pulled the plug on what could’ve allowed Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire to send Spider-Man out on a high note. Instead of waiting to get the script right, the studio decided to reboot quickly instead.

You might all recall what went down with the sequel, but ten years after Spider-Man 3 hit theaters, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and remember the Spider-Man sequel we wanted and never got.

Supercon Cast

Deepwater pic

Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have a thing for real-life drama. The pair are just coming off of Lone Survivor, an account of a Navy SEAL mission to kill a Taliban leader, and are about to dive into Patriots Day, about the events leading up to and around the Boston Marathon bombing. In between, they have Deepwater Horizon, about one of the worst manmade disasters in history.

In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded near the coast of Louisiana, springing a leak that would flow for another 87 days (making it the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history). Of the 126 crew members on board at the time, 11 were killed and another 17 were injured. Berg’s film follows the courageous men and women who tried to prevent the disaster, and then, when the worst happened anyway, valiantly worked to save their colleagues. Watch the first Deepwater Horizon trailer below.  Read More »
