Antoine Fuqua is on a roll right now. Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven remake opened strong at the box office this past weekend. The western may be another hit from Fuqua, whose three previous movies — Southpaw, The Equalizer, and Olympus Has Fallen — also performed well. After a few hit-or-miss movies post-Training Day, the director has been connecting with moviegoers again and again lately. We’ll soon see if audiences embrace his next project, Ice. The TV series is executive produced by Fuqua, who also directed the pilot.
Below, watch a quick Ice teaser trailer.

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 »
Hey, did you hear the one about the ugly sex addict who can’t get laid? Of course you didn’t. We’ve got plenty of films and stories about sex addicts, with star-quality guys in the lead roles. (See: Sam Rockwell in Choke; Michael Fassbender in Shame; David Duchovny in Californication.) Now, in Zipper, Patrick Wilson plays a politician who can’t quit his escort habit, even when it threatens to derail his family and career.
Wilson’s co-stars include Lena Headey, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ray Winstone, and that trio may be enough to demand a viewing. Check out the Zipper 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 »

It’ll be at least a couple years before Taken 4 comes out — if it ever does come out — but while we wait, The Gunman might be able to tide you over. Directed by Pierre Morel (of the first Taken), The Gunman stars Sean Penn as Jim Terrier, a former Special Forces soldier and military contractor suffering from PTSD.
All he wants is to reconnect with his love, but circumstances get in the way. He has information that has certain very dangerous people wanting him dead, and he goes on a globe-trotting mission to clear his name. Watch The Gunman international trailer after the jump. Read More »
Taken director Pierre Morel has recruited a pretty amazing roster of dudes for his latest film The Gunman: Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone and Mark Rylance all feature in the movie. The story, despite being based on a well-regarded novel, looks like boilerplate stuff, as Penn is a special ops sniper who is targeted by his own group and, as a defense, threatens to expose all their covert actions. In this Gunman trailer there’s some real serious face from Penn, some grandstanding by Bardem, and Winstone and Elba playing the wise and maybe-helpful voices. Oh, and of course there’s (sigh) a kidnapped woman (Jasmine Trinca) to add some extra urgency. Check out The Gunman trailer after the break. Read More »
20,000 Days on Earth is a magnificent film. Mostly a documentary, the movie is a profile of Australian singer/songwriter/film composer/author Nick Cave. But the film is really about creativity, and songwriting, and memory. It’s a mold-breaking doc that willfully does away with the rigors of hardcore doc filmmaking by staging scenarios in which Cave can be provoked to reveal things about himself and his work. We see Cave in a therapy session, and driving around with people such as Kylie Minogue (above), Ray Winstone, and, crucially, former bandmate Blixa Bargeld. The setups may be artificial, but what comes out of them has a ring of real truth.
For your first look at 20,000 Days on Earth, check out the Nick Cave documentary trailer below, via the Australian distributor Madman. Read More »

Compared to the world-ending waves in Noah, we can’t imagine 50-year storms seem all that impressive. Nevertheless, Ray Winstone has boarded the Point Break remake in the role of Johnny Utah’s older partner, played in Kathryn Bigelow‘s 1991 original by Gary Busey.
Winstone joins Luke Bracey and Gerard Butler in the actioner, which is being directed by Ericson Core. Read more about the reboot, including producer Broderick Johnson‘s comments on what has and hasn’t changed in the new version, after the jump.
