A Berlin-based ad exec whose thirst for games puts her at odds with her assistant.
A few titters wafted through the screening of 'Dead Man Down' as the WWE Studios logo came up on the screen. “Prejudice!” I thought. “Who is to say that Vince McMahon's new(ish) venture can't produce a quality piece of filmed entertainment?” Turns out all skepticism was justified.
'Dead Man Down,' a tiresome, predictable slog through every “in too deep” crime story cliché you've ever seen has as much subtlety as the average Face or Heel shouting into the mic during a Monday Night Raw. This is a dull movie that only perks up when it veers into the laughable, as when Noomi Rapace's character intentionally spikes Colin Farrell's character's two-years-in-the-making vengeance plot because she “had a moment,” but then bounces back into plan five minutes later anyway. Yes, I'm getting ahead of myself.
'Prometheus 2' was announced shortly after the original film hit theaters. Since then we've been left to wonder whether 'Prometheus 2' would happen (or should happen). The film's original writers - Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts - won't be left to return but star Noomi Rapace is eager to come back for a 'Prometheus 2' and said the script they're working on for the sequel is "incredible."
When we last left Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus,' the film had grossed a weak $126 million domestically but a slightly more promising $400 million worldwide. Those numbers didn't suggest that a sequel was going to be coming any time soon, while writer Damon Lindelof announced he wouldn't be involved with the follow up, which suggested that a sequel was never going to happen. But there's hope for a sequel yet as star Noomi Rapace has reported that the script is being worked on right now.
The Colin Farrell-Noomi Rapace revenge film 'Dead Man Down' opens in a few weeks, so we're going to see more and more about this movie, which reunites Rapace with her 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' director Niels Arden Oplev. Did they both make the transition to working in Hollywood? We'll know shortly, but here's a brief clip and featurette.
Revenge. It's a theme that always seems to make for an entertaining movie. And it's revenge that's at the center of 'Dead Man Down,' an upcoming action-thriller starring Colin Farrell. Today we've got some exclusive 'Dead Man Down' photos in advance of the film's release plus details on how you can win some cash.
Director Niels Arden Oplev made an international name for himself with the original Swedish adaptation of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' sending star Noomi Rapace to the Hollywood A-list and opening countless doors for himself. Three years later, his first American film is just about to arrive. Check out the trailer for 'Dead Man Down' below.
Viggo Mortensen's name isn't mentioned enough in movie news. He's one of the best actors we have in the business today and any role he's attached to is guaranteed to make us buy a movie ticket. And with this new role he's been offered, we'd be more than happy to sink our teeth into watching him play a part in a new vampire tale.
Noomi Rapace headlines "Quiet Eye," the latest viral video released in service of Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ as 20th Century Fox prepares fans for the film’s June 8 release. And like most of the marketing material surrounding Scott’s feature, it’s vague enough to enhance the mystery surrounding this film … which only makes us more intrigued.
