‘Heist’ Trailer: Robert De Niro Is a Gangster Casino Boss, Again

by Britt Hayes September 18, 2015 @ 5:44 PM
Robert De Niro has occasionally dipped his toe in the serene waters of “out of professional f—s to give,” but with the trailer for his latest film it would appear that he’s fully submerged himself for this one. Heist looks like a bland ripoff of Casino and Ocean’s 11, with De Niro once again playing a gangster who runs a casino, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Dave Bautista playing the guys who attempt to rob him.

Dave Bautista Wants To Make a ‘Star Wars’ Movie

by Matt Singer July 23, 2015 @ 12:56 PM
You probably know Dave Bautista as Drax, the knife-wielding, overly literal member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Or maybe you know Bautista from his days in WWE, where he was a frequent world champion and last left the company with maybe the funniest wave goodbye ever. Perhaps you’re a huge fan of The Man with the Iron Fists (but I kind of doubt it). However you know Bautista, you probably think of him as an intense, brooding badass. But apparently there’s a Dave Bautista we don’t know, Bautista who’s ... a huge Star Wars nerd?

While we very, very patiently await the full trailer for Spectre, the production has been keeping us occupied with photos and video blogs from the set, for which we should all be very, very grateful. The latest video update focuses on the classy, shiny (and very expensive) cars from the film, as well as the exciting chase sequences — because what is a Bond film without a good ol’ fashioned chase?

There have been plenty of rumors swirling around the upcoming (and long-gestating) Highlander reboot. As you’ll recall, a while back it was rumored that Summit was gunning for Tom Cruise to play the mentor role originated by Sean Connery in the 1986 film. Today’s rumor is a bit more reliable: Guardians of the Galaxy actor and wrestling superstar Dave Bautista has been cast as the villainous Kurgan. And you know, that sounds about right.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Star Dave Bautista Cast as 'Bond 24' Villain

by Mike Sampson October 13, 2014 @ 8:37 AM
We'd previously heard that the 'Bond 24' filmmakers wanted the villain for the upcoming sequel to be unlike the modern day villains and instead a throwback to the big hulking henchmen like Jaws or Oddjob. The casting call was looking for "an imposing, extremely physically fit actor" over 6'2" tall. Not a ton of guys like that around, but the director Sam Mendes didn't have to look further than the biggest movie of the year.

Does 'Avengers 3' Include a Big Part for Drax and the 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

by Jacob Hall September 10, 2014 @ 12:33 PM
Dave Bautista's Drax the Destroyer turned out to be a highlight in a film with many highlights, with the wrestler-turned-thespian selling the character's physicality and dry humor with a grace that you wouldn't suspect from a WWE superstar. So, it's not that surprising that new internet buzz suggests that his Marvel deal is currently being restructured to ensure his involvement in future films, specifically 'The Avengers 3.'
