SABOTAGE Review

by     Posted 240 days ago

sabotage-review

I have no problem with machismo in movies.  Machismo can be a lot of fun.  Arnold Schwarzenegger is machismo personified.  He’s macho to the point where he becomes an easy caricature.  He’s the violent badass we can all enjoy guilt-free.  But not everyone can handle that attitude, and as his co-stars demonstrate in David Ayer‘s Sabotage, the line between machismo and outright misogyny is a thin one.  The movie puts a lot of effort into its action and professional tactics, but the supporting characters aren’t just an afterthought.  They’re completely misguided weapons who earn our disdain rather than our sympathy.

For more than 30 years, PaleyFest has held panel sessions and screenings that connect the worldwide community of television fans with the casts and creators of their favorite TV shows.  One very special evening included a reunion with some of the cast and creative team behind Lost, one of the most talked about shows to ever be on television, which also currently happens to be celebrating its 10-year anniversary since it debuted.  Collider was there to attend the panel, and we’ve compiled some of the highlights.

During the evening, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, as well as actors Josh Holloway (“Sawyer”), Yunjin Kim (“Sun”), Jorge Garcia (“Hurley”), Henry Ian Cusick (“Desmond”), Ian Somerhalder (“Boone”), Maggie Grace (“Shannon”) and Malcolm David Kelley (“Walt”), talked about what they took from the set, their favorite fan theories, what the auditioning process for the pilot was like, why they decided to withhold information from even the actors, why they decided not to kill Jack in the pilot, that the characters were not dead the entire time, how doing a limited-run series now would have changed the show, what their intention with the outrigger was, their favorite Easter eggs, an aspect of the show they wish had turned out differently, and how they decided on the afterlife in the finale.  Check out what they had to say at the Lost PaleyFest panel after the jump.

New Red-Band Trailer for SABOTAGE Gets Personal

The recent footage for David Ayer’s Sabotage has certainly shown off the bloody violence prevalent in the R-rated actioner, but this new red-band trailer surprisingly shows us the reason that audiences should become invested in the film’s characters.  This new cut goes beyond the violent action and compelling mystery that are central to the plot in order to show the heart behind Arnold Schwazenegger’s character’s journey.  Though he fronts a DEA task force combating a ruthless drug cartel, the danger sets in on him from both sides as the criminals kidnap his family and his partners start disappearing one by one.

Also starring Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Mireille Enos, Josh Holloway, Olivia WilliamsHarold PerrineauTerrence HowardMax Martini, and Kevin VanceSabotage opens March 28th.  Hit the jump to watch the new red-band trailer.

A new international trailer for director David Ayer’s (writer of Training Day/director of End of Watch) Sabotage has just been released.  Based on Agatha Christie’s classic mystery novel And Then There Were None, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and 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.  While I was already excited for the project due to Ayer directing, all the footage I’ve seen makes the film look even better than I expected.  It’s also a lot bloodier than anything Schwarzenegger has done in many years.  It’s a great surprise.

INTELLIGENCE Series Premiere Recap – “Pilot”

by     Posted 319 days ago

intelligence-slice

There are some new shows where you don’t expect much, and then get a pleasant surprise (like Almost Human), and others you expect a lot from, and are disappointed by (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).  Then there are shows you don’t expect to be great, but have enough promising elements that you figure, how bad could it be?  This is where Intelligence seemed to fall for most.  Like many, the big draw was Josh Holloway (Lost), as well as a subversion of the intelligent computer formula with that of a computerized human.  While expectations might not have been really high for the series, the reality fell short of the mark.  But it’s only a pilot … hit the jump for more.

First Trailer for David Ayer’s SABOTAGE Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, and Terrence Howard

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.

First Trailer for PARANOIA Starring Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, and Gary Oldman

The first trailer for Robert Luketic’s thriller Paranoia is now available.  It does a nice job at setting up the premise of the film but, as is the current vogue, gives an awful lot of the plot away.  Liam Hemsworth stars as a blue-collar pawn caught in a game of espionage between two kings of industry, played by Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford.  The plot thickens when the long arm of the law reaches out for him, forcing him to play by his own set of rules to survive the game.  This one should be on your radar if only to watch Oldman and Ford battle it out and to see how Hemsworth handles the lead.

Also starring Lucas Till, Amber Heard, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Domenick LombardozziParanoia opens August 16th.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

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.
