Open Road Films has released the first trailer for director David Ayer‘s (End of Watch) new film Sabotage. Previously referred to as Ten, the film is loosely based on Agatha Christie’s classic mystery Ten Little Indians, as it centers on a DEA task force who heists a drug cartel safe house, only to start getting picked off one-by-one by an unknown assassin. The film actually looks pretty great, as the fantastic ensemble makes for an excitingly hardened team led by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who actually feels like a natural fit for the role of the group’s boss/father figure. Intriguing story, talented director, varied and charming ensemble—Sabotage is looking mighty promising.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars Joe Manganiello, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Max Martini, Josh Holloway, Olivia Williams, and Mireille Enos. Sabotage opens on April 11, 2014.
We have a new trailer today for Sexy Evil Genius, the feature debut from TV series director Shawn Piller (Haven). Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) stars as Nikki, the ex-girlfriend with severe abandonment issues who invites all of her former lovers out to a bar and lures them into a sadistic game of revenge. If nothing else, this trailer is worth a watch for Sackhoff’s fantastic evil laugh.
Also starring Seth Green, William Baldwin, Michelle Trachtenberg and Harold Perrineau, Sexy Evil Genius will be available on DVD and Digital Download on April 9th. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and check out some stills from the movie.
Director David Ayer’s (End of Watch) upcoming action thriller Ten just nabbed a release date, but those itching to get a look at the film anytime soon will be sorely disappointed. Open Road Films announced today that Ten will be released on January 24, 2014, which for you mathematicians out there is about 13 months away. The film is loosely based on Agatha Christie’s classic mystery Ten Little Indians, as it centers on a DEA task force who heists a drug cartel safe house, only to start getting picked off one-by-one by an unknown assassin. The impressive ensemble cast is lead by Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway, Max Martini (Revenge), Olivia Williams (Anna Karenina), and Mireille Enos (The Killing) rounding things out.
Currently no other film is slated for that same weekend in January 2014, but Open Road has also released a slightly new image from the film. It’s incredibly similar to the first image of Schwarzenegger that was previously released, but this photo shows the actor striking a different (though no less intimidating) pose. Hit the jump to read the press release and to take a look at the new image.
Judging by the trailer for Snitch, mandatory minimums are a great law-enforcement strategy as long as you force Dwayne Johnson to be an untrained undercover informant. Johnson plays a father who, in order to keep his son from going to jail, is forced to work with the feds to take down a drug kingpin (Benjamin Bratt). Snitch could end up being a bunch of goofy, B-movie fun especially with a strong supporting cast that includes Michael Kenneth Williams, Barry Pepper, Harold Perrineau, and Susan Sarandon. Or, it could be Faster. I’m hoping it’s the former.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Snitch opens February 22, 2013.
Thanks to social networking, we now have the first image of Arnold Schwarzenegger in director David Ayer’s new film, Ten. Schwarzenegger tweeted the image earlier today, one that shows off a new look for the former Governor as he’s sporting a new haircut and a variety of new tattoos. He’s also armed to the teeth and ready for battle in a police-issue bullet-proof vest, complete with knives, ammo and at least three guns. Back when it was titled Breacher, Ayer said he wanted to “reinvent Arnold” during an interview with Steve. You’ll have to decide for yourself whether or not he succeeded. Hit the jump to check out the first image and for more on Schwarzenegger’s character.
With only two more seasons left, following this current one, to tell the show’s story, things are getting very, very real on the hit FX drama series Sons of Anarchy. Never one to shy away from going there when the story calls for it, show creator Kurt Sutter did just that, in the game-changing episode “Laying Pipe,” opening up emotional ramifications for the rest of the season.
During this recent interview to discuss the events of that episode, executive producer Kurt Sutter talked about when he knew the character’s fate and how the actor found out, the motivations for the character’s actions, the mood on set while shooting that scene, how it will affect Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) leadership and the emotional relationships of the club going forward, what’s to come for Juice (Theo Rossi), whether audiences will ever soften to Damon Pope (Harold Perrineau), whether a confrontation between Jax and Clay (Ron Perlman) is inevitable, and why seven seasons is the right amount of time to tell this story. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are spoilers.
Having seen the first two episodes of the new season of Sons of Anarchy, I can say that I will never look at actor Harold Perrineau the same again. As ex-drug lord gone legit businessman Damon Pope, his restrained performance is equal parts menacing and chilling, and gives every indication that he will be one of the most terrifying antagonists SAMCRO has ever seen. The show stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Ryan Hurst, Theo Rossi and Dayton Callie, among others.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, to promote Season 5 of the hit FX drama series, Harold Perrineau (Lost, Oz) talked about how he came to be playing this brutal new role, how he was able to understand who Damon Pope is, that the tight-knit cast has been very welcoming, how it takes a little bit of time to shake such an intense character when they’re done shooting, and who he’d love to see Damon Pope have a confrontation with. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
As this is Easter weekend, it’s only appropriate (or possibly wildly inappropriate) to bring you a trailer for a film with Jim Caviezel, a man who once played Jesus (The Passion of the Christ). In the Antonio Negret (Seconds Apart) film, Transit, Caviezel must rise up (sorry) and protect his family from a group of armored car robbers. The premise is based around Caviezel’s character, Nate Sidwell, a man just released from prison who is taking his family on vacation and attempting to regain their trust. His plan goes awry when the aforementioned criminals covertly stash their stolen loot atop the Sidwell’s car in order to sneak it past a roadblock. Transit, also starring James Frain, Harold Perrineau and Elisabeth Rohm, opens in limited release May 11th. Hit the jump to check out the trailer, which features a great look at the ever-lovely Diora Baird.
We’ve already seen a few images and a teaser trailer for the forthcoming animated series adaptation of Blade, but now the January 13th premiere of the new anime is right around the corner, and now there’s a new teaser trailer to get you psyched. While it takes a lot for me to truly get excited for an anime product (it’s just not my style), the action does look like it’s going to be pretty killer, and since it’s following everyone’s favorite vampire hunter (sorely needed in these Twilight Saga clogged days), it could very well be worth checking out.
Check out the new teaser trailer after the jump. Blade premieres January 13th.
We’ve got quite a few casting stories for you today. First up, Susan Sarandon has joined the cast of the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg comedy I Hate You Dad.

The film stars Will Sasso as Curly, Sean Hayes as Larry, Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, Jane Lynch, Larry David, Stephen Collins and Craig Bierko. Deadline reports that Hudson will play Sister Rosmary at the orphanage that the Stooges are raised. Lynch and David play two other (presumably evil) nuns at the orphanage.

Jim Caviezel and James Frain have joined Elisabeth Rohm, Harold Perrineau, and Diora Baird in the cast of the Antonio Negret thriller Transit. THR provides a brief outline for Michael Gilvary’s script: “Thieves on the run from a bank robbery come across a suburban family on its way to a camping trip. When the criminals stash their stolen money in the family’s SUV at a rest stop, the road trippers, with Caviezel as the protective father, unwittingly draw the murderous band of outlaws on their trail.” Courtney Solomon and Joel Silver are producers on the project, housed at After Dark Films.
The most recent work of both Caviezel and Frain has been relegated to the small screen: Caviezel headlined AMC’s 2009 miniseries remake of The Prisoner, while Frain has been chewing the scenery on the current third season of the HBO vampire soap True Blood.
