It's been five years since Eli Roth's 'Hostel: Part II' hit the screen, which is a mighty long absence for an up and coming director. That's not to say he hasn't kept busy, with such projects as a lead role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' and co-writing 'The Man with the Iron Fists,' which stars Russell Crowe. Crowe and Roth may work together again with 'Harker.'
When the RZA announced that he was going to direct his own kung fu movie, we knew that he was the right man for the job. The Wu-Tang Clan and many of his other projects would reference a number of classic samurai and kung fu films, and watching the red-band trailer for his 'The Man With The Iron Fists,' it's clear he knows his genre.
RZA’s a fixture in the hip-hop community, though film nerds know him from his performances in films like 'American Gangster' and 'Repo Men.' He’s making the move to the director’s chair later this year with 'The Man with the Iron Fists,' and the first promotional image from the historical thriller is eye-catching, to say the least.
Yesterday you got to see some photos of the 'Les Miserables' cast so you know how they look as your favorite characters, but what do Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe sound like when they're singing your favorite 'Les Mis' songs? The 'Les Miserables' trailer is here and you can find out.
Tom Hooper caught a lot of grief as his ‘The King’s Speech’ rode the Oscar campaign trail two years ago, primarily because his excellent film was deemed “not as excellent” as David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’ by vocal film columnists. But in the process of arguing for ‘Network’ (which is great), most overlooked the fact that ‘Speech’ is deftly directed and superbly acted. Hooper’s the real deal, and he’s the perfect fit for ‘Les Miserables,’ which we get a good look at today.
After the Success of 'Black Swan' it's nice to see that Darren Aronofsky is allowed to make a big budget film of his own choosing - especially after the numerous compromises that went into his still-pretty-great film 'The Fountain'. Now we've got word that his next film has locked down its star and shooting date.
