It’s January 2017, the start of a new year full of promising movies and movie news, not the least of which is today’s announcement that Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum are both circling a project from Paramount titled Triple Frontier.
FX and Tom Hardy’s Taboo will need all the trailers and footage it can get for audience to make any sense of its concept, though “sense” is nowhere to be found in the first official clip. Watch Hardy give some good crazy in an effort to reclaim a brothel, as we get closer to the Ridley Scott miniseries’ January 2017 premiere.
If you’ve managed to catch any of Tom Hardy’s straitjacket-worthy Taboo trailers, you know FX has lost a few marbles over the star-studded Ridley Scott miniseries. That said, at least we know when our descent into madness will begin with a January 2017 premiere, and a brand-new trailer at that.
Man, it must be nice to be Josh Trank. OK, so you’ve only ever directed two feature films before. Fine, Fantastic Four was such a bust that it caused studio executives to publicly attack you in the media. And yeah, your short tenure as a Star Wars director ended with you walking away from the franchise in favor of more personal projects. For many filmmakers, any of those three things would be enough to cross your name off the financing shortlist for future projects. But Josh Trank just takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’.
If you thought American Horror Story promos were bats— crazy, Tom Hardy has something seriously Taboo to show you. FX has come up with not one, but four new promos of the star-studded Ridley Scott miniseries, and they’re … uh … well, the word “nightmaresplosion” comes to mind.
The exploits of the great adventurer Ernest Shackleton are already the stuff of legend, myths of a time gone by when fearless men circumnavigated the globe just to see if they could. The Irishman led three expeditions to Antarctica, staving off sub-zero temperatures and general hardship to expand the limits of man’s knowledge of his world. Shackleton was a leader of men, often keeping his charges calm and collected during times of extraordinary peril; his ship, the aptly named Endurance, crashed on an ice floe and Shackleton kept his crew sane and alive through the harrowing ordeal that followed. He’s the sort of historical figure that macho actors line up to play, preferably in a well-financed biopic.
It’s been months since FX offered anything new on Tom Hardy’s upcoming limited series Taboo, but if may have been worth the wait. Get a fresh glimpse of good crazy in the eight-part miniseries venture between FX and the BBC, produced by Ridley Scott.
What happens when you let Christopher Nolan make a World War II drama? That’s more of a rhetorical question than anything, but just in case you need an answer, the first teaser for Dunkirk has arrived. Although brief, Nolan’s latest film looks every bit as gorgeous and intense as we imagined — maybe even more. As if we weren’t already tired of this disappointing summer movie season, Dunkirk just gives us another reason to think that 2017 can’t get here fast enough.
Daniel Craig couldn’t have made it more clear during the Spectre press tour that he was pretty sick of playing James Bond. He even went so far as to suggest he’d pick slashing his wrists over returning as the famous secret agent for a fifth time. And now it looks like the actor is really done as 007, reportedly turning down a ton of money to star in the next Bond film. As big of a bummer as that is, it also means it’s time to speculate!
Could Tom Hardy be following in the Stormtrooper footsteps of Daniel Craig? According to the latest rumor regarding Star Wars: Episode VIII, it would appear that the simple answer is yes. And while it’s easy to believe this report based on similarly fun cameos in The Force Awakens, now would be a good time to remind you of the 40 (yes, 40) rumors about that film that turned out to be totally wrong. As always, approach this report with a bit of skepticism, but it may very well be true.
