Though we aren't yet into August, the summer movie season is winding down. '2 Guns' opens this Friday, and it stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, but it's hard to compare it to the big event films like 'Iron Man 3' or 'Man of Steel.' Maybe that's why there's a brand new trailer for the film to help get people excited for its release in four days.
Denzel Washington starring in a film version of the '80s TV series 'The Equalizer' had our curiosity, but the casting of Chloe Moretz ensures that it has our attention. The young 'Kick-Ass' and 'Let Me In' star will a play a young prostitute in the film who crosses paths with Washington's spy-turned-investigator.
Do you like Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg cracking jokes with each other while watching them shoot things and blow stuff up? Well then, you're probably gonna love '2 Guns.'
There's been word of Denzel Washington starring in a big screen version of 'The Equalizer' for a while now, which suggests that this project will eventually hit the big screen. For a while 'Drive' director Nicolas Winding Refn was attached, but that didn't work out, so now they're going for 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' helmer Rupert Wyatt.
Insert your own "the prodigal son has returned" joke here, but there's no denying how exciting it is that director Robert Zemeckis has finally released himself from his experimental motion capture prison and is back to making real movies. His first live action film since 'Cast Away' in 2000, 'Flight' premiered to positive reviews at the New York Film Festival and looks like it may be a big player in the upcoming awards season. But you're here because a new clip has been released from the film, so scroll on down!
Universal has seen plenty of misfires and almost-hits this year, between 'Battleship' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' they didn't have a great summer (though 'Ted' managed to save them a little), while fall picture '47 Ronin' was bumped into 2013. But studios are all about franchises these days, and one of the few films that worked for them in 2012 was 'Safe House.' Big surprise, they want a sequel.
Though he's already won an Oscar for 'Traffic' and was nominated for 'Syriana,' Stephen Gaghan has been relatively quiet recently. But he's looking to get back into writing and directing with 'Candy Store,' which has lined up a powerhouse cast with Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt both in talks to join the film.
Those hoping that Denzel Washington would make a return to more serious, challenging roles will have to wait a little longer. He's set to star in 'The Equalizer,' an adaptation of a semi-forgotten '80s television series, a role that will surely allow him to stare quietly at bad guys before pounding the stuffing out of them (which has become something of his acting modus operandi these days). In typical Hollywood fashion, the film doesn't have a director yet, but it officially has a release date.
