Sony’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo didn’t exactly set cinema screens alight with its box office performance earlier in the year. It did enough, $232 million in global box office, to have people working on the follow-up The Girl Who Played With Fire (writer Steven Zallian is busy typing away) but Sony seem in no rush to get it made.
I’ve been on a bit of an action movie bender lately. Among the more forgettable, throwaway titles, I watched The Expendables, the movie that brings together an entire generation of action movie stars, and Taken, where Liam Neeson plays and ex-CIA agent who’ll go through anybody and anything to rescue his kidnapped daughter. These two titles got me thinking – Exactly how many people have these walking holocausts killed altogether? Read more »
Hey, do you remember that update I did a couple of days ago on Brian De Palma’s Passion? Those super high quality pics? Well, we’ve gone one better – now we have the trailer.
The last update we had on Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly we watched the fantastic trailer. Here we have the poster and, well, it’s less than inspiring.
Last time we talked about Daredevil Fox Studios were in talks with director Joe Carnahan. They wanted to get the film into production now in order to retain the rights to the character and not have them revert to Marvel. The Grey director produced some sizzle reels for his vision of The Man Without Fear, but Fox didn’t really like what they saw and decided to pass. With it now looking impossible to get the film into production by the October deadline, it seems Fox have given up and decided to let the rights go back to Marvel.
Rockstar, with these two updates in the space of a week, you are really spoiling us! Yup, just the other day we saw some of the vehicles we’ll be able to use in Grand Theft Auto V, today we’re getting a brief peek at the fun leisure activities we can get up to in Los Santos/San Andreas.
I talked about Brian De Palma’s Passion a few months back. I said that my only interest in this was due to the involvement of Noomi Rapace. That pretty much still stands. I mean, when was the last time De Palma made a really watchable movie? Mission Impossible? Carlito’s Way? Still, it might all come good with Passion, it’s not as if the synopsis describes it as an erotic thriller… Oh. Anyway, let’s take a look at these high quality pics, shall we? They are super clickable. CLICK THEM.
