We have the world premiere of the first trailer for the film Filth and, like its title, it certainly looks rather filthy.
Michael Bay's Pain And Gain looks like a wild ride. A return to Bay's unhinged, sociopathic Bad Boys 2 days, rather than Bay's unhinged, sociopathic Transformers days, which aren't hugely different but the kid-friendly veneer makes the whole thing considerably more offensive and creepy.
Pain & Gain stars Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a trio of bumbling meatheads who kidnap and extort a businessman for huge amounts of money. It's a Coen Bros movie, by way of Michael Bay. Basically, cause for celebration.
Only God Forgives is Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Drive, so expectations are understandably high, yet the all-new red-band trailer steps out with confidence. Paradoxically understated and aggressive all at once, it's marvelous.
With the recent news of detective chief inspector April Casburn receiving a fifteen-month jail sentence for selling information to the News of the World, it seems that breaking the law has become a favoured past time of some of those charged with upholding it. This new feature from writer and director George Isaac appears to be all the more relevant then as he proffers up possible reasons that could trigger the counter-intuitive actions of those employed in law enforcement.
Martin Scorsese announces a second foray into television with a small screen sequel to Gangs of New York.
The latest collaboration between Nicholas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling is edging closer and to keep its potential audience intrigued, we have been treated to 3 new images from the film. They show a not-afraid-to-fight Gosling, his on-screen mother Jenna (Kristin Scott Thomas) and the film's aptly-named villain Angel of Vengeance (Vithaya Pansringarm).
David Michôd's Animal Kingdom was one of the best movies of 2011; including star-making turns from Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver and Ben Mendelsohn, who have all gone on to big things in Hollywood. Michôd's atmospheric, chilling crime thriller was one of the most exciting directorial debuts to come out of Australia since Andrew Dominik's Chopper. Suffice to say, Michôd's follow-up was always going to get a lot of attention.
How is it possible that I am actively anticipating a Harmony Korine film? After Trash Humpers made me want to hate-fuck the universe in the eye socket, it's remarkable that something carrying Korine's name could inspire anything beyond revulsion and contempt. Yet, here we are, over three weeks away from the release of Spring Breakers and I am counting down the days.
After receiving great reviews at the Sundance Festival, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, Don Jon, was shown at SXSW. Whilst there he spoke to Super Hero Hype about his upcoming role an Jonny in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. As in the first film, it is split into separate stories, though JGL's section, titled The Long Bad Night isn't based on a previous Frank Miller penned story and is all new.
While Derek Cianfrance's new picture may well be heist film it's a far cry from Steven Soderbergh's slick and glossy Oceans 11. Cianfrance has once again teamed up with his Blue Valentine lead Ryan Gosling, this time however (in a role reminiscent of Drive) Gosling is playing a highly skilled motorcycle stunt man who turns his hand to bank robbing. This latest offering gives a small insight into the intense simplicity of Cianfrance's movie.
