First Trailer For The Numbers Station
John Cusack And Malin Akerman Race Against The Clock In First Trailer For The Numbers Station
Watch A Good Day To Die Hard Online As the years pass it gets harder and harder to get a beat on John Cusack. While he has certainly played his part in some modern classics, from Say Anything... to The Grifters, Grosse Pointe Blank to High Fidelity, but the last few years of his career have been marked by distinctly not classic - or even good - films like The Raven, 2012, and War Inc. With each new title the gamble seems to get riskier and riskier, but you hold on hope that Cusack's next will turn it all around. Perhaps The Numbers Station could be the film to change the tide. The new thriller, which is the first American effort from Danish filmmaker Kasper Barfoed and co-stars Watchmen's Malin Akerman, has launched its first trailer online in advance of its approaching April release date. Check out the preview below, courtesy of Yahoo!
Watch Die Hard 5 Online Based on a script by first time writer F. Scott Frazier, The Numbers Station stars Cuscak as Emerson, a skilled-yet-disgraced black-ops agent who is put on simple bodyguard duty for a woman named Katherine (Akerman) working at a secret CIA broadcast base known as a Numbers Station - a location where top secret codes are issued to agents to take out wet work tasks. When the secret establishment is infiltrated, Emerson is able to protect his charge, but suddenly finds himself in a race against time trying to stop a series of assassinations that could end up changing the entire world. Image Entertainment has picked up the movie for release and will have it in theaters on April 26th.
Watch Die Hard 5 Online When it comes to horrors and thrillers,sometimes you don't need to look beyond the film's music to judge the quality, as almost every classic horror that comes to mind brings with it a memorable score; or at least a few striking notes, as Bernard Hermann's orchestral stabs from Psycho well prove. The themes from Jaws, Halloween and The Exorcist are as easily recognizable as any pop song from the last fifty years, and even Friday the 13's iconic breathy notes are unforgettable. Not that the work of South Korean director Chan-wook Park can be forgotten any easier. His latest film, Stoker is a psycho-sexual mystery hinging on secrecy and mistrust, and has the talented and frequent Darren Aronofsky-collaborator Clint Mansell doing the composing. But Spin has released a solo piano track from the film performed by the near-legendary Philip Glass. While Mansell uses frequent aural motifs that build upon each other until its peak is wildly intoxicating, as seen Requiem for a Dream, Glass’ “Duet” packs a handful of emotions into less than three minutes.
Watch A Good Day To Die Hard Online Spin reports the track plays “a pivotal role in the film’s agonizing pas de deux of lust and cruelty.” And one would expect no less from Park, whose Vengeance Trilogy, including Lady Vengeance and Oldboy, reinvigorated the revenge flick while also making other titles in the genre pale in comparison. No doubt Stoker will contain a handful of scenes that may make casual filmgoers shade their eyes. But at least the beautiful music will be there to accompany them. Stoker, Park’s first U.S. feature, stars Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre) as a girl whose father dies on her 18th birthday, leaving her and deranged mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman) on their own - at least until a previously unheard of Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) arrives to care for them. Mia doesn’t trust her “uncle,” and slowly becomes obsessed with discovering the truth about him. If this film doesn’t end with three majorly violent deaths, I’ll be as surprised as anyone. Stoker hits theaters across the country on March 1, 2013.
Watch MAMA Online After earning a strong reputation with his Swedish film Snabba cash, director Daniel Espinosa arrived in Hollywood with a solid bang. Last year saw the release of his first American feature, Safe House with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington, and the movie was a bona fide hit, managing to make over $200 million at the global box office, and he has been in demand since. He is currently attached to direct both the World War II Yakuza thriller The Outsider and the Russian-set crime drama Child 44, but now he's added another film to his upcoming slate. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Espinosa is now developing an adaptation of John Grisham's The Racketeer as a directing vehicle at Fox 2000 and New Regency. Featuring similar themes to the best selling author's other works, the story begins when a federal judge is murdered at his lakeside cabin. Unfortunately, the only person who has any information regarding the crime is an imprisoned former attorney who plans to use his new position of power to get revenge on those that sent him to prison.
Watch Breaking Dawn Part 2 Online The book is Grisham's latest, having hit bookshelves last October, and the movie will be the first feature adaptation of one of his works since 2004's Christmas With The Kranks (though a short-lived television series based on The Firm was on NBC last year). How fast the project will come together remains up in the air. They are currently looking for a writer to adapt the story and the trade doesn't mention a production start date. Given that Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace both recently signed on for Child 44, there's a fair chance that Espinosa will make that his next project. Director Bryan Singer has been very vocal about the actors he will be reuniting with on the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. Thanks to the film's time travel plotline, having part of the story set in the distant future and others set in the 1970s with the First Class crew, the project has allowed Singer to bring back actors like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin and Sean Ashmore from the original X-Men trilogy to reprise their roles as Professor X, Magneto, Wolverine, Kitty Pryde, Rogue and Iceman, respectively.
Watch Bullet to the Head Online Similarly, Singer's quotes to MTV are keeping question marks around Halle Berry's potential involvement as well. In December it was rumored that the production was approaching the actress about coming back as the weather-powered mutant Storm, but nothing has ever been confirmed. When asked for a status update, Singer told the network, ""I can’t say. I don’t know yet. And it’s not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it’ll make sense. But I love working with her." As exciting as it would be to see a lot of the old mutants from the original trilogy in X-Men: Days of Future Past, I appreciate that Singer doesn't want to go the X-Men: The Last Stand route and over-fill the screen with characters. Production is scheduled to start in the next couple months, so perhaps we'll have a final headcount by then.
Watch The Hobbit Online I’m not sure there could be a better day for Blu-ray news. Not only does Skyfall hit shelves today, but earlier this morning, Universal announced Les Miserables is coming to Blu-ray and DVD, and will do so sooner than fans may have guessed. The hit musical will be available on March 22, and to tide fans over in the interim, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has put together a special clip for the release. The Blu-ray and DVD clip is not a trailer for the home entertainment release, exactly, although it does offer plenty of pretty shots and magnificent footage from the film. The segment also focuses on some of the film’s biggest actors, including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, and Anne Hathaway, as well as director Tom Hooper and explains the excitement and feelings of epic-ness the cast and crew felt about bringing a musical like Les Miserable to the big screen. It does help that the segment is supplemented with music from the film and provides shots of some of the out of this world sets used during filming.
Watch Gangster Squad Online Exciting as all of those announcements have been, however, the nagging question that always comes back is, "Who else?" Nobody stays dead in the world of comics, so could James Marsden and Famke Janssen potentially come back as Cyclops and Jean Grey? What about Aaron Stanford as Pyro or Daniel Cudmore as Colossus? Singer is undoubtedly fielding those questions regularly as he powers through pre-production on the movie, but for today he's responded to questions about two specific characters: Nightcrawler and Storm. Let's start with the blue teleporter, shall we? A couple months back Alan Cumming, who played the role to acclaim in 2003's X2, went on the record saying that he would be interested in reprising the role should there be a spot for him in the cast.
