Kim Basinger Joins Shane Black’s NICE GUYS; Patrick Stewart to Play White Supremacist Leader in GREEN ROOM

by     Posted 61 days ago


An L.A. Confidential reunion of sorts is in the works.  THR reports that Kim Basinger is set to join the cast of director Shane Black’s 1970s noir film The Nice Guys, reuniting her with her L.A. Confidential co-star Russell Crowe, who plays a hired leg breaker that teams up with a private eye (Ryan Gosling) in order to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star.  Basinger will play the chief justice in the film, a character who is in bed with criminals.  The film returns Black to noir territory after co-writing and directing one of the best Marvel films yet, Iron Man 3.  The cast is filling out quite nicely, with Matt Bomer, Cara Delevingne, Keith David, and Beau Knapp all onboard.  The film is slated for release on June 17, 2016.

First Trailer for GRUDGE MATCH Starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro

by     Posted 1 year, 100 days ago


Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for director Peter Segal’s (The Longest Yard) upcoming comedy Grudge Match. Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro star as two retired professional boxers who used to be boxers.  When they end up getting into a fight while filming mo-cap for a boxing video game, an official rematch is planned and the older gentlemen now have to get into shape.  While a boxing movie starring Stallone and De Niro could have easily been a straight drama, this trailer shows that Grudge Match is very much a comedy—complete with a Rocky gag and plenty of “you’re so old that ___” jokes.  There’s also a bit with a creepy CGI’d version of Stallone’s younger self retiring from acting, but overall the chemistry between the two and their trainers (played by Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin) looks fairly promising.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Jon Bernthal, Kim Basinger, and Camden GreyGrudge Match opens on Christmas Day.

Charlie St. Cloud movie image Zac Efron slice

I like Zac Efron. I think the guy’s genuinely talented and unfairly gets a bad wrap. He’s more than likely got a very successful film career ahead of him, full of deep and thought provoking films. Charlie St. Cloud is not one of those films.  St. Cloud is, of course, one of Efron’s first forays into straight dramatic fare and unfortunately it’s a bit of a misfire. Films like this come out of Hollywood all the time: great-looking small town star is subject to a tragic event, gets ostracized from said town and becomes great-looking emotionally damaged outcast in whom great-looking female takes an interest, much to great-looking female’s friends and family’s dismay.  Charlie St. Cloud is no exception to this cliché and, for the most part, plays like one. My review after the jump.

Trailer for CHARLIE ST. CLOUD Starring Zac Efron; Plus 10 New Images

by     Posted 4 years, 174 days ago

The trailer for the drama Charlie St. Cloud has gone online.  The movie stars Zac Efron as a young man who gives up sailing after his kid brother is killed in a car accident.  However, Charlie is able to see his dead brother and play catch with him every day.  This is all well and good until he falls in love with a girl who reignites his passion for sailing and his need to move on with his life.

It seems like this would be a more powerful story if it were about the relationship between a father and his deceased son rather than between two brothers.  Then again, that could also be too heavy for today’s delicate audiences.  It doesn’t really matter since this is one of those trailers that takes you through the entire plot of the movie.  Hit the jump and watch it at your own risk.  Charlie St. Cloud opens on July 30th.

Charlie St. Cloud movie image Zac Efron slice

Today we get our first look at the romantic drama Charlie St. Cloud, which stars Zac Efron.  Based on the novel by Ben Sherwood, the film centers around a “young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way.”  Alongside Efron, the cast includes Amanda Crew, Donal Logue, Charlie Tahan, Kim Basinger, and Ray Liotta.  Burr Steers (17 Again) directs from a script by Craig Pearce (Moulin Rouge!) and Lewis Colick (Ladder 49).

The film doesn’t look like my cup of tea, but I hope for big things from Efron, and this seems to represent a step in the right direction away from teen stardom.  The beginning of his career his not all too dissimilar from that of Leonardo DiCaprio, if I may make a bold comparison.  Check out new images and a full plot synopsis after the break.

Exclusive: THE BURNING PLAIN Movie Poster – Starring Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger

Magnolia Pictures just sent over a beautiful poster for their new film “The Burning Plain”, starring Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger.  The film is described as a “romantic mystery” but – because it was written and directed by Guillermo Arriaga (“21 Grams”, “Babel”) – I think it’s safe to assume that those two adjectives could not possibly sum up all of the complexity and nuance that Arriaga is able to pack into two hours.  “The Burning Plain” will be available on VOD beginning August 21st and in a limited theatrical run on September 18th.   Follow the jump to read the film’s synopsis and to get a better look at the lovely back of Ms. Theron…
