Two of England’s best acting exports are joining forces for a survival romance about two people who escape the wreckage of a plane crash. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet star in The Mountain Between Us as a surgeon and photojournalist, respectively, who are injured in a crash and must rely on each other to survive in the freezing Colorado mountains. Naturally, they fall in love in the process. I mean, have you seen those two? They’re two of the hottest people on the planet. Of course they fall for each other.
USA Today has our first look at some photos from the movie, as well as some quotes from the director that make me think this is the beginning of a Revenant-style campaign to make sure everyone knows how tough it was to shoot out in the elements.

Even though Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will undoubtedly dominate the box office when it hits theaters in December, there’s at least one film that’s bold enough to go up against the franchise spin-off on opening weekend.
Collateral Beauty stars Will Smith as a dejected man named Howard who has lost the flare of life he used to have before his daughter died. As a form of therapy, Smith begins writing letters to Time, Love and Death, and one day he gets a surprise when one of them actually shows up to talk to him.

John Hillcoat is drawn to extreme worlds. How his characters embrace, reject or accept their brutal environments is a running idea throughout much of the director’s work. The filmmaker’s latest picture, Triple 9, is definitely a John Hillcoat film, filled with pain and violence. He’s never one to shy away from reality. In fact, he fights for it.
After the jump, read our John Hillcoat interview.

On paper, Triple 9 sounds like familiar territory, another story of corrupt cops butting heads with police officers and crooks alike. But if you place John Hillcoat in the director’s chair, I’m suddenly very interested. And if you then place Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, Gal Gadot, and Aaron Paul in front of the camera, you’ve just sold a ticket.
A new batch of Triple 9 clips have arrived on the the heels of those very intense trailers and posters, just in case you need some additional convincing that a crime film with that line-up deserves to be on your radar. Whether it’s ultimately good or bad remains to be seen, but there’s no way this movie is boring.

What do you get when you combine John Hillcoat, the talented director of Lawless and The Road; an A-list ensemble cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Kate Winslet; and more dirty-cop tropes than you can shake a stick at? The answer is Triple 9, a gritty crime thriller that lands in theaters next weekend. The Black List script by Matt Cook centers on a group of corrupt officers blackmailed by the mob into pulling off an insane heist. They decide the only way to pull it off is to kill one of their own, but suffice it to say things don’t go as planned.
Open Road Films has come in just under the wire with one last Triple 9 trailer, just as the first Triple 9 reviews have hit the web. Watch the latest promo, and find out what the critics are saying about Hillcoat’s caper, after the jump. Read More »

Casey Affleck plays a rookie cop joining a crew of dirty cops who have blackmailed to pull off a heist for the Russian mob. No one can be trusted, and someone is probably going to die. Watch below!
