‘Spy’ Trailer: Melissa McCarthy Has a License to Kill (And Tell Dirty Jokes)

The spy comedy is a genre almost as venerated and beloved as the spy genre it mocks. There’s Our Man Flint, Casino Royale (the original Woody Allen one), Austin Powers, MacGruber, and now the simply titled Spy. It stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a desk-bound CIA officer who is sent out into the field for her first time after a fabulously well-dressed super-villain (Rose Byrne) learns the identities of every working CIA agent. Now the woman who’s always taken a backseat to her boss (Jude Law, the Bond to her Moneypenny) gets to step into the spotlight.

Post Credits: Watch Mike Sampson and Matt Singer Review ‘Furious 7’

by ScreenCrush Staff March 26, 2015 @ 3:30 PM
Post Credits, ScreenCrush’s new movie review show, returns with an all-new episode about one of the most anticipated movies of the spring: Furious 7, the latest entry in the long-running Fast & Furious franchise. Hosts Mike Sampson and Matt Singer dive deep into the film like precision drives diving out of a plane in cars (which is a thing that happens in Furious 7). Topics up for discussion include new director James Wan, new villain Jason Statham, the outrageous stunts and action, and whether or not either host cried at the film’s emotional send-off for late star Paul Walker. (Or, more accurately, whether or not either host would admit they cried at the film’s emotional send-off for late star Paul Walker.)

If the Super Bowl spot and this morning’s extended trailer just weren’t enough for you ‘Fast and Furious’ fanatics, then we’ve got even more engine-roaring goodness for you. Universal has released a new official poster for ‘Furious 7,’ along with a whole gallery of images featuring some familiar faces (and some new ones) to get you all revved up for the upcoming sequel.

‘Wild Card’ Trailer: Jason Statham Is a Bodyguard With a Dangerous Gambling Problem

by Britt Hayes December 14, 2014 @ 1:31 PM
Hopefully ‘Wild Card’ is better than Jason Statham’s last outing, ‘Homefront.’ The new film is a remake of ‘Heat,’ the 1968 movie starring Burt Reynolds, and is based on a screenplay by Academy Award-winning writer William Goldman (‘All the President’s Men,’ ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’). Can Statham fill the awesome shoes of Reynolds? Not likely, but you can enjoy watching him try his hand in this new trailer.

It's been a few years since the release of Jason Statham's 'The Mechanic,' the remake of the 1972 film starring Charles Bronson, and now the action flick is getting a sequel and Statham is getting some fresh co-stars: Tommy Lee Jones, Jessica Alba, and Michelle Yeoh have joined the cast of 'Mechanic: Resurrection.' And although production has already begun, it'll be a while before you see this one -- 2016 to be exact.

New 'Expendables 3' Pics Show the Cast Having a Pretty Great Time

by Jacob Hall April 16, 2014 @ 12:14 PM
There's no way the set of 'The Expendables 3' wasn't a fascinating place to be. After all, you don't put personalities as varied and eclectic as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford in one place without generating at least a few stories worth sharing. A new batch of images from the set of the upcoming action film makes us wish we could have been a fly on the wall for a few days. What exactly would Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes say to each other?

'The Expendables 3' Trailer: Stallone and the Gang Are Back For More

by Jacob Hall April 3, 2014 @ 2:53 PM
Call us suckers, but going by the new trailer for 'The Expendables 3,' we think this may be the one that finally gets it right. Both 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' were well-meaning but sloppy nostalgia exercises, but we're hoping that the third time is the charm and that this one will be a well-meaning and actually entertaining nostalgia exercise.

'The Expendables 3' Reveals 16 Truly Weird Character Posters

by Jacob Hall April 2, 2014 @ 12:04 PM
The 'Expendables' franchise has one thing going for it: nothing else can top it when it comes to the sheer number of interesting and noteworthy actors on screen. So it's not too surprising when 'The Expendables 3' drops 16 character posters on the same day because of course 'The Expendables 3' would have 16 characters important enough to warrant their own character posters.

'Homefront' Review

A successful Jason Statham film requires a limited amount of cinematic resources: a stunt budget, a cartoon villain, a script with peppered with goons to punch in the face, and a Jason Statham. Hire a director who has streamed at least three Statham action movies off Netflix to cobble together a thin plot and — boom! — entertainment.
Perhaps because Oscar-nominated screenwriter/painter Sylvester Stallone took on writing duties, Statham's latest film, 'Homefront,' dares to opt out of the formula in favor of a character-driven crime story. A novel idea, but unfortunately, this film is a bore. Like Stallone's own' Bullet to the Head,' 'Homefront' believes it's cut from the same cloth as Walter Hill's 'Southern Comfort,' but it can barely muster up the thrills of an episode of 'MacGuyver.'
