‘Rambo: Last Blood’ Trailer: Don’t Make A Bloodied Sylvester Stallone This Angry

‘Rambo: Last Blood’ Trailer: Don’t Make A Bloodied Sylvester Stallone This Angry
Sylvester Stallone is back in Rambo’s bloodied shoes in the first trailer for Lionsgate’s “Rambo: Last Blood,” the fifth entry in Stallone’s action franchise that first started in 1982. Stallone found great success reviving his beloved “Rocky” franchise in 2015 with Ryan Coogler’s “Creed,” which grossed over $170 million worldwide, spawned a sequel in last year’s “Creed II,” and earned Stallone an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Can Stallone make the same lightning strike again with the “Rambo” franchise? That’s surely the intention.

“Rambo: Last Blood” centers around Stallone’s troubled Vietnam War veteran and former U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier as he tries to pull off one final mission involving a vicious Mexican drug cartel. Joining Stallone for the fifth “Rambo” movie is a supporting cast that includes Adriana Barraza, Paz Vega, Yvette Montreal, and Sergio Peris-Mencheta as the drug cartel leader. The movie will

Shia Labeouf and Mel Gibson Teaming Up for Dark Satire Rothchild

Shia Labeouf and Mel Gibson have both signed on to star in the dark satire about New York’s super wealthy called Rothchild. Jon S. Baird (Stan and Ollie) is set to direct. Labeouf and Gibson are both fantastic actors who have each given some epic performances in their day, but have both had some issues surrounding their anger struggles and legal difficulties sounding them. Hopefully they can keep it together and pull out great performances for this movie.

Deadline reports that the film will focus on:

“charismatic outcast Becket Rothchild (Labeouf) plots his way back into his family’s riches, setting himself on a collision course with patriarch Whitelaw Rothchild (Gibson). On the way, he must infiltrate the weird and twisted lives of his super-rich kin including frat boys, hipster artists and reality TV stars.”

This sounds like it will be an over-the-top real life description of the excessive

Anthony Bourdain on Asia Argento, His Favorite Movies, and Why Donald Trump Would Be a Terrible Dinner Companion

Anthony Bourdain on Asia Argento, His Favorite Movies, and Why Donald Trump Would Be a Terrible Dinner Companion
Anthony Bourdain watched 30 minutes of “Baby Driver” before he walked out of the movie theater. “It rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning,” he said, looking back on an experience that led him to tweet “Fuck Baby Driver” to his millions of followers. “I felt like right away I knew what was going to happen to everybody in the cast. I just felt it was telegraphed so early and painfully. I had a violent physical reaction. I stumbled out the theater in a pit of depression and fury.”

That’s the thing about Bourdain, who has spent two decades hosting food shows with a unique blend of machismo, travel fever, and cultural inquiry: A television personality who’s a creature of cinema, he devours movies almost as frequently as the cuisines at the center of his show. And in all instances, he’s man of discerning tastes.

From A Very British Coup to Collateral: the best state-of-the-nation dramas

Boys from the Blackstuff was a broadside aimed at Thatcherism, while State of Play skewered Blair’s Britain, but what are the lessons from Britain’s best political dramas?

Collateral review – Carey Mulligan shines in a damaging political drama

From its earnest conversations about immigration to the complicated plot involving cover-up and conspiracy at the highest level, it’s clear that Collateral, David Hare’s latest drama which began on BBC Two last night, has pretensions above your average crime thriller. Set in a world fuelled by the gig economy, Collateral’s central plot follows detective Kip Glaspie’s (Carey Mulligan) as she investigates the murder of a Syrian pizza delivery man. It’s a case which swiftly turns out to have a far wider impact than might initially appear. There are hints of government corruption, a military cover-up, possible media foul play – it can only mean one thing: this is a state-of-the-nation drama,

If you're a fan of Jackie Chan, today is our lucky day! We already posted a trailer for his sci-fi action film Bleeding Steel. Now we have a new trailer and wicked cool clip from his upcoming action revenge thriller The Foreigner. This movie looks incredibly good!

In the clip, we get to see Chan get in an awesome brutal fight with some bad dudes in the woods. As you'd imagine he lays the beat down on them. Then we have the new trailer which offers us some additional new footage from the film.

In the story, Chan takes on the Ira because his daughter was a victim of one of their terrorist attacks. It seems like one of the people who know who is responsible for that attack is Pierce Brosnan, and Chan has to compel him to talk to get the information that he's looking for.

Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder Reunite for Destination Wedding

Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder Reunite for Destination Wedding
It's the reunion we've waited a lifetime for. Well, not really. The usually stellar Keanu Reeves and the always welcome Wynona Ryder first appeared together in one of Revees' most critically derided and divisive movies. One his most hardcore fans find hard to defend. Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula. Now, the pair are ready to give the world another taste of their unique chemistry, and it allows both actors to return to a genre they long ago abandoned, the romantic comedy. This is actually pretty exciting.

Keanu Reeves (The Matrix trilogy, John Wick, John Wick: Chapter Two) and Academy Award Nominee and Golden Globe Winner Winona Ryder (Girl Interrupted, Stranger Things) will star in Victor Levin's (5 to 7) comedy Destination Wedding, from Levin's original script. Sunshine Pictures' Gail Lyon is producing with Two Camel Films' Elizabeth Dell. Robert Jones is producing for The Fyzz Facility, which is fully financing the film.

Keanu Reeves (The Matrix trilogy, John Wick, John Wick: Chapter Two) and Academy Award® Nominee and Golden Globe® Winner Winona Ryder (Girl Interrupted, Stranger Things) will star in Victor Levin’s (5 to 7) comedy Destination Wedding, from Levin’s original script. Sunshine PicturesGail Lyon is producing with Two Camel Films’ Elizabeth Dell. Robert Jones is producing for The Fyzz Facility, which is fully financing the film. Elevated’s Cassian Elwes and The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey are executive producing. Principal photography recently wrapped in central California.

Destination Wedding tells the story of two miserable and unpleasant wedding guests, both pariahs at this affair, who develop a mutual affection despite themselves. But to act on those feelings would be to trust hope over experience, a foolish choice indeed.

The Best War Movies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Howard Hawks’ “The Dawn Patrol,” from 1930, shows soldiers and officers cracking up from the cruelty of their missions — and shows the ones who manage not to, singing and clowning with an exuberance that suggests the rictus of a death mask. There’s courage and heroism, virtue and honor — at a price that makes the words themselves seem foul. John Ford’s “The Lost Patrol,

First Trailer for Martin Campbell's 'The Foreigner' Starring Jackie Chan

"Never push a good man too far." A trailer has debuted for the action film The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan in a serious role as a man who goes for revenge when the police do nothing to help him. This is the latest film from Martin Campbell, director of GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness, and Green Lantern; adapted from a book called "The Chinaman".

The full cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Charlie Murphy, Katie Leung, Simon Kunz, Rory Fleck Byrne, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Stephen Hogan, and Dermot Crowley. This seems like an quietly intense story of a man who goes to war against everyone when no one else will do anything. Footage looks great, I'm totally in for this. Here's the first official trailer

Fearless recap: episode one – sex, lies and Syrian refugees

The new crime thriller from the Homeland creator has murder, corruption, cover-ups and a crusading human rights lawyer at its heart. Yes, it’s the Helen McCrory show … and it’s all the better for it

ITV has been making heroic attempts to try something different with its dramas of late. Some results have been very successful (Unforgotten) and some less so (Marcella). On the basis of this intriguing yet occasionally infuriating opener, I’d say Fearless falls somewhere between the two. It’s not quite the Edge of Darkness or State of Play I was hoping for – the script (from Homeland creator Patrick Harbinson) is occasionally clunky – but it’s very well acted and the closing minutes hinted at enthralling things to come.

Michael Wearing obituary

Television producer whose work included landmark dramas such as Boys from the Blackstuff and Edge of Darkness

Michael Wearing, who has died aged 78, was a television producer and executive behind some of the most socially and politically charged dramas of the late 20th century. He successfully steered the medium through a period when single plays were dropped in favour of series. It was his work as script editor on The Black Stuff, the writer Alan Bleasdale’s 1980 Play for Today, that led him two years later to produce the landmark five-part drama Boys from the Blackstuff, which became a battle cry for the unemployed in Thatcher’s Britain after their numbers soared to more than three million. Bernard Hill’s cry of “Gissa job” in his role as Yosser Hughes became a national catchphrase.

However, Wearing continued to use the single-play format by presenting each episode as the story of

  • DailyDead

Mel Gibson Dishes Out Fatherly Punishment in New Trailer For ‘Blood Father’

Mel Gibson has been (very) slowly but (somewhat) surely reshaping his career after a long downhill spiral. Edge of Darkness reminded the world of his screen presence, then in The Beaver, he was a meek, shy loner, contrasting his performance in Get the Gringo, where he was a gruff, hard-edged con. Now, he continues the latter approach with the second trailer for Blood Father, directed by Mesrine helmer Jean-François Richet.

After years alone in the desert running a tattoo shop and always on the lookout for his wayward daughter, ex-con John Link (Gibson) puts both feet back into murky waters when she shows up at his door in need of help. It is scripted by author Peter Craig who, alongside Andrea Berloff (co-writer of Straight Outta Compton), looks to have chiseled a mean and enjoyable, if somewhat formulaic ride.
