With production looming closer, we’re starting to get word regarding the final confirmed cast for director Robert Rodriguez’s long-in-the-works sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Back in April we heard that Rosario Dawson was planning on reprising her role as Gail in the follow-up, but subsequent press releases for the film left her name off the cast list.  Now the actress herself has confirmed her involvement to E! Online:

“It’s in! It’s happening! Can’t tell you nothing.”

If I remember correctly, prostitute dominatrix Gail shows up about halfway through Frank Miller’s graphic novel , but the protagonist of A Dame to Kill For is Dwight.  That character was played by Clive Owen in the first film, but in A Dame to Kill For he has a different face.  We still haven’t heard if Owen will be back or who (if anyone) is taking on the character in the sequel, but Dawson is a welcome addition to the cast.  Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on October 4th, 2013.

In 1995, Will Smith starred in the first of three back-to-back films that would rocket his career into superstardom and solidify his status as a box office king.  He kicked things off with Michael Bay’s feature directorial debut, Bad Boys, followed by the large-scale sci-fi actioner Independence Day, and rounded things off with the franchise-starter Men in Black.  The third installment in the sci-fi comedy series, Men in Black 3, just opened in theaters and now Men in Black and Men in Black II have been released on Blu-ray to mark the occasion.  Hit the jump for our review of both films on Blu-ray.

Production has completed on the neo noir caper Hotel Noir, and the first image from the film has been released.  Snakes on a Plane screenwriter Sebastián Gutiérrez tries his hand as a director at the noir genre in the 1950s-set film that centers on a detective holed up in a downtown hotel waiting for assassins to kill him.  We follow the detective through the night as he meets and converses with various characters who have haunted pasts of their own.  This being a Gutiérrez film, it’s described as a “sexually charged” crime film.  The cast is fairly impressive and includes Rufus Sewell, Carla Gugino, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Malin Akerman, and Robert Forster.  The pic is currently without distribution, but it will be shopped to international buyers in Cannes.

Michael Pena to Play Labor Activist Cesar Chavez in CHAVEZ; Rosario Dawson Cast as Dolores Huerta, America Ferrera Co-Stars

by     Posted 2 years, 42 days ago

michael-pena-cesar-chavez

Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Pablo Cruz started developing a Cesar Chavez biopic at their Canana Films nearly two years ago.  Chavez is a legendary activist and Latino icon, revered for his efforts in the American labor movement, so his portrayer must be chosen with care.  Two years later, Canana came up with an inspired choice: Michael Pena.  I’ve noticed Pena most visibly in recent years creating distinct comic characters in lighter fare like Observe and Report or 30 Minutes or Less.  But the actor made is name in heavier dramas like Crash and World Trade Center.  Pena is versatile, and you need an actor who can tap into both sides of the craft to play an iconic figure who is a true leader of men.

Luna stepped behind the camera in 2010 to direct Abel, and has decided to make the biopic Chavez his second narrative feature.  Luna cast Rosario Dawson as Dolores Huerta, Chavez’s partner in activism and co-founder of what eventually became the United Farm Workers.  America Ferrera will play Chavez’s wife Helen.  Hit the jump for more, including comments from Luna on the importance of Chavez’s message.

New Images from FIRE WITH FIRE Starring Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson, and Bruce Willis

New images have been released for the likely-direct-to-DVD movie Fire with Fire.  The film stars Josh Duhamel as a fireman who has to take matters into his own hands when he’s threatened by a man he’s going to testify against.  So how do I know this movie is going direct-to-DVD?  For starters, the movie stars Bruce Willis and lately his small-budget thrillers are going to stores instead of theaters (Setup and Catch .44).  Second, it co-stars 50 Cent whose last seven movies haven’t made it into theaters (as well they shouldn’t).

But hey, maybe the movie will make it to the big screen, in which case the world can once again be reminded that 50 Cent should never be in movies.  Hit the jump to check out the images.  Fire with Fire also stars Rosario Dawson, Richard Schiff, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

TIFF 2011: TEN YEAR Review

by     Posted 2 years, 217 days ago

Ten-year-movie-image-slice

People tend to freak out a little when it comes to their ten year high school reunion.  They see it as a chance to make up for past regrets, prove how well they’re doing (even if they’re not), and regress a bit to the meaningless drama of our teenage years.  Jamie Linden’s Ten Year gets the meaningless drama part.  Following a group of male friends and their female appendages, Ten Year features redundant storylines, a dearth of humor, an almost total lack of creativity, and a waste of a perfectly good cast.

First Images from THE EXPATRIATE Starring Aaron Eckhart and FIRE WITH FIRE Starring Josh Duhamel

New images have gone online for the upcoming action flicks The Expatriate and Fire with FireThe Expatriate stars Aaron Eckhart as a former CIA agent who moves to Belgium with his estranged 15-year-old daughter (Liana Liberato) and takes a job as a security consultant at a multinational corporation.  But then he discovers that his co-workers are gone, the corporation no longer exists and his assistant is actually a trained operative trying to kill him.  Upside: great dental program.  Olga Kurylenko co-stars as Eckhart’s former lover/CIA partner tasked with tracking him down.

As for Fire with Fire, the film stars Josh Duhamel as a fireman who has to take matters into his own hands when he’s threatened by a man he’s going to testify against.  Hint: he does it with fire.  The film also stars Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, 50 Cent, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.  It could end up in theaters, but my gut tells me this is headed straight to DVD with maybe a cursory stint on VOD.  Hit the jump to check out the images.  No release dates have been announced for The Expatriate or Fire with Fire.

Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson Join James McAvoy in Danny Boyle’s TRANCE

by     Posted 2 years, 265 days ago

vincent-cassel-rosario-dawson-slice-01

Danny Boyle has found two more leads for his heist-thriller TranceDeadline reports that Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel will join James McAvoy in the film which centers on an art heist that goes sideways when its mastermind (McAvoy) gets amnesia and can’t remember where he stashed the loot.  Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson were previously rumored for the other lead roles, but now it looks like Cassel will play the leader of the heist team while Dawson will play the hypnotist tasked with recovering the mastermind’s memories.  The modestly-budgeted and harder-edged picture will be more in line with Boyle’s earlier films Trainspotting and Shallow Grave.

Filming on Trance is set to begin in September and then will be put on a shelf while Boyle directs the summer Olympics.  He’ll pick it back up again in August 2012 for editing and then release it in March 2013.  Both Dawson and Cassel will next be seen at the Toronto International Film Festival with Ten Year and A Dangerous Method, respectively.

6 Clips from Kevin James ZOOKEEPER

by     Posted 2 years, 297 days ago

zookeeper-movie-poster-slice

With director Frank Coraci’s (Click, The Wedding Singer) Zookeeper opening July 8, we’ve been sent six clips from the film.  Starring Kevin James in a remix of Night at the Museum (instead of a museum, he’s at a zoo), the pic is probably going to make a boat load of cash for Sony if James’ track record is any indication.  In case you don’t pay attention to box office numbers, James is pretty close to a sure thing.  While many thought Paul Blart: Mall Cop was a joke, it went on to make $183 at the worldwide box office.  Even Grown Ups, which got beaten with a club by critics, went on to make $271 million worldwide.  So, even though you couldn’t pay me to watch Zookeeper, I know kids are going to love it and it’s going to make a lot of coin.  Hit the jump for the clips and full synopsis.  Zookeeper also stars Rosario Dawson and Leslie Bibb and it features the voices of Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, and Sylvester Stallone.

ZOOKEEPER Trailer Looks as Terrible as You’d Expect

by     Posted 2 years, 336 days ago

zookeeper-movie-poster-slice

There are lots of movies I’m looking forward to and I’m happy when I get to report on films like Rampart or The Wettest County in the World.  But the site isn’t simply about the films I like.  Sometimes I have to report on films that crumple up my soul and chuck it in a waste bin of sadness.  With that in mind, the trailer for Zookeeper has gone online.  The “family film” stars Kevin James as a zookeeper who discovers that animals can talk and that they’ll help him win back the girl of his dreams (Leslie Bibb) even though he’s clearly going to end up with a fellow zookeeper played by Rosario Dawson.  Oh, and the animals are voiced by celebrities like Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, and Sylvester Stallone because of course they are.

Hit the jump to see the trailer filled with slapstick and uncomfortable production placement for TGI Friday’s.  Zookeeper opens July 8th, but maybe go see something else instead, like paint drying.

Kate Beckinsale Offered Lori in TOTAL RECALL; Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson Up for Melina

by     Posted 2 years, 363 days ago

kate-beckinsale-total-recall-slice

Sony Pictures has offered Kate Beckinsale  the role of Lori opposite Colin Farrell in their Total Recall remake.  Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, and Jessica Biel have each read for the part of Lori.  This is the first time Beckinsale has been linked to the film, though her involvement is no surprise: Beckinsale is slightly married to the director, Len Wiseman.  They previously collaborated on the Underworld movies.

If Beckinsale accepts, Biel has a backup; early reports suggested the actress is after the role of Melina.  Yet that may prove yet another dead end for Ms. Biel.  Deadline hears Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson are “the serious contenders” for the role.  Bryan Cranston is confirmed to play villain Vilos Cohaagen in the remake.  Read more on the story after the jump.
