Samuel L. Jackson
We're just a few of months away from the release of Spike Lee's 'Oldboy,' a remake of Park Chan-wook's insta-classic South Korean tale of suffering and revenge. FilmDistrict released some new, hi-res photos today to give us a peek at some of the film's major players -- including Samuel L. Jackson with a blonde afro-mohawk.
Can the 'RoboCop' remake possibly live up to the original? That's the question on everyone's mind and what Sony Pictures was trying to prove when they brought the film to Comic-Con. We checked out the brand new 'RoboCop' footage and spoke to the cast of the film - Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson - plus director Jose Padilha to find out what this new 'RoboCop' was bringing to the table.
Among the many offerings presented at the Columbia Pictures/Sony Comic-Con 2013 panel was the much-talked-about 'RoboCop,' the upcoming remake of the 1987 classic. The presentation, which debuted Friday, July 19 on the Hall H stage, featured appearances by director José Padilha, and stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, and Samuel L. Jackson.
The worst thing a remake of Park Chan-Wook's incredible 'Oldboy' can be is generic, which is why a newly released poster for Spike Lee's upcoming remake has, for the first time, filled us with true optimism about the project. The fact that an official one-sheet for the film is this bizarre leads up to believe that (maybe, perhaps, hopefully) the final film will be as insane as the Korean original. Fingers crossed, folks.
For decades, 'Star Wars' fans were secure in the knowledge that lightsabers came in only three colors: red for evil, green for good and blue for Obi-Wan Kenobi. But then, when the new trilogy of prequels was released between 1999 and 2005, Samuel L. Jackson joined the franchise as Jedi warrior Mace Windu and broke the rules by sporting a purple weapon. So how did it happen?
While last night saw AMC's 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston netting himself another Critics' Choice award for his iconic portrayal of chemistry teacher-turned meth kingpin Walter White, last week we saw 'The Avengers' star Samuel L. Jackson reciting one of the character's most famous monologues for charity. So, who best to become the danger next? Why, the dulcet tones of Gilbert Gottfried, of course!
Just this morning we were wondering about how best to get Samuel L. Jackson onto Marvel's upcoming 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, where now it seems the prolific actor has his eye on another TV gig. As part of an ongoing Alzheimer's' charity drive, Jackson recorded himself doing one of Walter White's most famous 'Breaking Bad' monologues, and the results are at least 99% chemically pure.
The first trailer for Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' gave us a clue as to which 'Avengers' stars (beside Coulson) would make the first appearance in ABC's new series. But superheroes aren't the only Marvel characters we'd want to see. Were the man himself, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, to show up in Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' how would Jackson want it to be done?
