The ‘Child 44’ trailer confirms something that has been a long time coming: 2015 is going to be the year of Tom Hardy. Sure, he’s been steadily rising through the ranks of Hollywood stardom for nearly a decade now, but he has five films coming out within the next 12 months, playing everything from post-apocalyptic action heroes to 19th century American cowboys. In the case of ‘Child 44,’ he’s taking on the role of a military police officer in the Soviet Union during the 1950s who finds himself embroiled in the hunt for a prolific child murderer.

'The Drop' may well be known as the late James Gandolfini's last film, but that's not all it should be known for. It also features Tom Hardy cuddling with puppies. Okay, okay, it's actually an effective and intense crime drama, which features yet...

There's a lot to admire in the new trailer for 'The Drop.' The first thing you'll notice is the presence of the late, great James Gandolfini is his final role. The second thing you'll notice is that Tom Hardy just plain smolders, even with a Brooklyn accent. The third thing you'll notice is that this is the American debut of director Michaël Roskam, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker behind the fantastic and truly unique crime film 'Bullhead.' Yeah, this is a movie you should keep your eye on.

'Dead Man Down' Review

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.
