The first 24: Live Another Day trailer was released during the Super Bowl last month. But the first 24: Live Another Day trailer featuring actual footage from the series was revealed this weekend.
In it, CIA head Steve Harris (Benjamin Bratt) spots Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) for the first time in years. Like us in the audience, he seems excited to see Jack; unlike us, it’s because he thinks Jack is a bad guy.
But that’s not even the biggest of Jack’s worries. As he warns Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), “If the American president is assassinated on foreign soil, you’re looking at a world war.” And the only man who can stop such a cataclysmic event is… well, you can probably guess. Watch the pulse-pounding promo after the jump.

“This is the best bad idea we have, sir, by far.”
Here’s the trailer for Argo, Ben Affleck‘s third film as director. The film follows the efforts of an operation to rescue six diplomats hiding in Tehran during the Iranian revolution in 1979. The trailer begins in serious political thriller mode before the real plan is revealed and it moves into an Oceans Eleven tone for a moment. But it swings back as the real importance of the mission becomes clear.
This trailer demonstrates that the material could really put Affleck to the test as he has to balance a tricky combination of tones and situations. But his cast is excellent: Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Zeljko Ivanek, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Chris Messina, Michael Parks, Kerry Bishe, Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, and Taylor Schilling. The footage looks great, and keeps this locked as one of our most anticipated movies of the year. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
Warner Bros has sent out the obligatory press release to announce the commencement of filming on Ben Affleck‘s third film as director, Argo. We’ve known most of the cast for a while: Affleck, Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, and John Goodman, with more recent additions Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan, Rory Cochrane and Taylor Schilling.
Now we’ve got an official synopsis for the film, which adapts the true story of a CIA team that posed as a film crew in order to extract diplomats from Tehran in 1979. But perhaps of more interest to some who already know the story is the confirmation of cast additions that include the great Michael Parks (above), as well as Clea Duvall and Richard Kind.

The smaller casting for Ben Affleck‘s third directorial effort, Argo, is falling into place. The movie already has a great topline cast: Affleck, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Bryan Cranston and Scott McNairy are part of the true story about a CIA team that attempted to extract diplomats from Tehran in 1979 by posing as a film crew scouting locations to make a sci-fi film called Argo.
Now Tate Donovan (Good Night, and Good Luck), Nelson Franklin (The Office) and Taylor Schilling (Atlas Shrugged, Mercy, The Lucky One) have been added to the cast. Read More »
Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Anna Kendrick, Milo Ventimiglia and a few other actors were photographed leaving the Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip on Tuesday morning. The restaurant is famous for its karaoke, crazy parties and a mechanical bull. Some gossip sites were quick to report that it was a four-hour Scientology event, since a good selection of the actors involved are Scientologists. But it was later confirmed to be a table read for a movie called Paper Wings, which is being developed at Smith’s company Overbrook Entertainment.
