Adapting the works of essential American novelist Ernst Hemingway is no slight task; his spartan prose and deep undercurrent of melancholy demands a light directorial touch and a sensitivity from the actors giving life to his carefully selected words...
His first four words are perhaps the most unnecessary introduction in the history of human civilization:
The No Escape trailer shows us a side of Owen Wilson we haven’t seen in a long time. In 2001, before he was officially typecast as an offbeat goofball, he tried to prove himself as an action hero in Behind Enemy Lines. He did not succeed, to put it mildly. So when we see an older, wiser Wilson attempt to rescue his family in the midst of a violent rebel uprising, we almost have flashbacks to that film (almost because that would require remembering that movie at all).
Pierce Brosnan is back in the spy game, baby! Although the former Bond, James Bond isn't jumping back into 007's shoes (hey, Daniel Craig is pretty good at that, okay?), Brosnan hasn't yet abandoned his action hero status, and he'll next appear in this month's 'The November Man,' where he will play -- shock! -- a spy.
'The November Man' very much wants to remind you that its star once played James Bond. Yes, Pierce Brosnan is back, once again playing the action hero in a spy movie. The casting seems compelling enough, and the 'November Man' trailer sees Brosnan straddling an interesting line between 007 and Liam Neeson in 'Taken,' very much looking his age but making it work for him.
'The Simpsons' once put it best by implying that the world remembers Pierce Brosnan for his iconic take on James Bond, not his five-season stint as NBC's similarly-tuxedoed 'Remington Steele,' but the past may come back to haunt him in a big way. NBC has revealed plans to reboot the classic conman series with a sequel adaptation from 'Zombieland' director Ruben Fleischer, but with one notable twist: turning it into a half-hour comedy!
What did you do this weekend? Catch up on 'Breaking Bad,' or watch the James Bond saga before 'Skyfall' hits theaters? Well, Aaron Paul and Pierce Brosnan sure weren't. Both of them were out partying at the Radiohead concert in London, where they almost got kicked out and an awesomely hilarious photo (shown above) was created.
