Director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven (which seems to have dropped the “the” because it’s 2015 and no one has time for that) has added another actor you really like to its line-up of stars. Ethan Hawke, fresh off an Oscar nomination for Boyhood, has joined Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Haley Bennett in the remake of the western classic, which follows a team of gunfighters who team up to protect a small Mexican town from bandits.
The first trailer for Regression has arrived, the latest film from Academy Award winning director Alejandro Amenábar (The Others), starring Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. Going off of the international trailer above, the director’s latest horror flick looks just as moody and atmospheric as previous outings, with the added unnerving element of some sinister cult activity.
This week sees the release of ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest sci-fi adventure from Andy and Lana Wachowski. And while in all likelihood ‘Jupiter Ascending’ will not go down in history as one of the great works of its genre, the occasion of a new sci-fi epic from two of the modern masters of the form seemed like a good time to assess and celebrate the recent highlights of science fiction cinema, which has taken audiences from the furthest reaches of the cosmos to the deepest recesses of the human mind.
Not long ago we brought you the trailer for ‘Cymbeline,’ the upcoming dark ‘n gritty contemporary take on the William Shakespeare play of the same name—well, not anymore. ‘Cymbeline’ has been given the new title ‘Anarchy,’ which doesn’t really scream “Shakespeare,” though it does sound like a pretty cool title if you’re living on the edge in high school in 1996.
If there’s one thing the ‘Good Kill’ trailer has going for it, it’s relevancy. Filmmakers have been telling stories about U.S. military actions in Afghanistan for a decade now, but this seems to be the first somewhat major movie to tackle the subject of drones, a topic that has started its fair share of controversy in the media and arguments around dinner tables. Even if it had nothing else going for it, this is a film that is very much of the moment.
A few months back we got our first look at ‘Predestination,’ an upcoming sci-fi film that re-teams Ethan Hawke with the directors of ‘Daybreakers.’ In case you’d forgotten about this intriguing movie, we’ve got a brand new trailer and some good news: the film is finally hitting theaters this January after garnering some positive buzz on the festival circuit this year.
Today brings the first trailer for 'Cymbeline,' yet another modernization of a William Shakespeare play -- though this one is lesser-known. And while we've certainly seen Shakespeare updated plenty of times, and we've seen Shakespeare done with Ethan Hawke and John Leguizamo, we've definitely never seen Shakespeare with a biker gang twist. So at least it has that going for it.
After months of negotiations, Joaquin Phoenix still hasn't accepted the title role in Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' and if you want to believe that latest rumor floating around the internet, Phoenix's hesitation and resistance is Ethan Hawke's gain. Yep, according to at least one source, Hawke is now the new frontrunner to play Marvel's cinematic Sorcerer Supreme.
Although you'd think that starring in Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' -- a film that took twelve years to make -- would be a labor of love, star Ethan Hawke found a way to make the project even more personally appealing. He used it as an audition for the next 'Star Wars' movie. Well, sort of.
The first 'Predestination' trailer shows a film in which Ethan Hawke ('The Purge,' 'Boyhood') seeks to prevent major crimes before they even happen. It sounds just like something out of a Philip K. Dick novel, right? Only here Hawke is traveling through time to stop these events, as opposed to relying on those pesky Precogs of 'Minority Report.'
