The Gunman Sean Penn

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 »

Gunman trailer

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 »

Bradley Cooper Louis CK Actors Studio

Louis CK is known for telling the truth. Even if it’s painful or offensive, Louis CK will tell people how it is. Now, a recently discovered interview shoves that idea in his face thanks to CK’s American Hustle nemesis, Bradley Cooper.

To explain, in an old interview CK did with fellow comedian, writer and actor Stephen Merchant, he joked about the fact every single actor who asks a question on Inside the Actor’s Studio will never be famous. That sounds like a pretty safe assumption, if only because of the millions of people who want to be actors, only a small handful actually reach recognizable status. But, it’s not 100% true; one young actor who asked a question on Inside the Actor’s Studio did become famous. A young man named Bradley Cooper.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

There have been no shortage of teasers, trailers, and clips for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller‘s latest directorial effort, but for the most part the footage has been revealed in brief one- or two-minute increments. Today, we have a brand-new trailer for the romantic adventure that clocks in at six minutes long.

Based on the 1939 short story by James Thurber and the 1947 movie inspired by same, Stiller’s Walter Mitty follows a timid Life Magazine photo editor who constantly daydreams to escape his dull life. When his job is threatened, however, he sets out on an epic journey every bit as incredible as the elaborate fantasy sequences he’s concocted in his head. Watch the latest promo after the jump.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Most of us lead fantasy lives more “noteworthy and mentionable,” as one might put it, than our real lives, but the protagonist (Ben Stiller) of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty faces a bigger divide than most. In his daydreams, he’s a handsome hero who sweeps his crush (Kristen Wiig) off her feet, whereas in reality he can barely look her in the eye.

But that all starts to change for him when real-life circumstances threaten to put him out of a job. In order to save himself and the woman he loves, he must embark on the kind of wild, colorful adventure he’d previously only imagined. Hit the jump to watch the newest trailer.
