‘Borg/McEnroe’ Trailer: Anyone for Tennis and Shia LaBeouf?
Shia LaBeouf would not be my first choice to play tennis pro John McEnroe; but hey, I’m not the guy making a movie about the rivalry between him and Björn Borg. The movie, the appropriately titled Borg/McEnroe, is actually a Swedish production (Borg’s from Sweden), with Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason as Borg. And, yes, as you can see in the trailer above, that is Mr. LaBeouf as Mr. McEnroe.
Only Three People in Britain Saw Shia LaBeouf‘s New Movie
While he‘s made more headlines recently as an avant-garde political performance artist — and even more headlines as a guy who gets arrested at political performance art installations — it falls to Shia LaBeouf to intermittently remind the people of America that he is an actor, first and foremost. He’ll win our love (tennis pun!) later this year as John McEnroe in the double biopic Borg vs. McEnroe, but presently, his war drama Man Down has tromped into theaters after its 2015 festival debut. The bad news for The Beef is that not a whole lot of people saw the critically derided, low-profile indie. And in Britain, they’re prepared to put a number on just how hard Man Down flopped. And that number is three.
Shia LaBeouf Unveils Four-Year Trump Protest Performance Art
Donald Trump is the President of the United States now. Wily performance-art prankster Shia LaBeouf does not intend on taking that sitting down. The daring mind behind #ALLMYMOVIES (that time the Beef watched every single one of his movies back-to-back in reverse order at New York’s Angelika Film Center) and I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE (that other time when he put a paper bag over his head before walking the red carpet at the Berlinale) has unveiled his latest work of highly conceptual living art. And if you live in the New York metropolitan area and are willing to go to Queens, you could be part of it.
Shia LaBeouf Comes Home From War in ‘Man Down’ Trailer
It’s hardly a secret that the American military has no idea what to do with its veterans, often leaving the traumatized men to fall through the cracks due to a lack of support. As the newly released trailer for the upcoming action-drama Man Down amply shows, soldier Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf, mercifully free of his American Honey rat-tail) has more than his fair share of baggage when he returns home from an extended tour of duty in an unidentified conflict. But he’ll have to contend with more than poverty and the guilt over watching his brother-in-arms (Jai Courtney) die; turns out that while he was away fighting to protect it, America went right to hell anyway.
‘American Honey’ Review: An Intimate Trip Through the Wild Midwest
Imagine if Larry Clark was a woman, capable of depicting the inner lives of disenfranchised youth with all the psychic nuance and sensitivity estrogen could provide. Imagine a road trip through Middle America as presented by Claire Denis; now imagine that the brutal emotional intensity and distinct feeling of dread remain intact, while the threat of grotesque acts of violence lurk on the periphery, merely imagined and never realized. If you can imagine that, you might come close to approximating the experience of watching American Honey, the latest stumbling-of-age drama from Fish Tank director Andrea Arnold.
Shia LaBeouf Says WB Vetoed His ‘Suicide Squad’ Casting
In a really fascinating profile published by Variety today, actor and occasional performance artist Shia LaBeouf addresses a few of the more controversial aspects of his career (his arrest, drinking problems, etc.) and discusses working with some of the biggest directors in Hollywood (Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg). But one of the most intriguing revelations from the article is that LaBeouf almost starred in Suicide Squad — until the studio (and some script changes) got in the way.
David Ayer On the ‘Polarizing’ Fury and That Time He Was Thrown Under the Bus
David Ayer knows that, with ‘Fury,’ he’s made a polarizing movie. It’s fascinating when not a director not only reads the reviews, but is openly talking about those reviews before a movie has even opened. Ayer is exaggerating when he says “the knives are out,” (‘Fury’ currently sits at 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and has its fair share of support to counter those that don’t – but Ayer is right when he calls it polarizing in the fact that the people who like it, really like it, and the same can be said for its detractors. ‘Fury’ sure does cause a reaction.
