My favorite part of the Oscar award season is all the roundtables with the nominees. Thanks to THR you can watch Jared Leto talk about waxing his legs, Julia Roberts discuss the scariest on-set moments and Alfonso Cuaron elaborate on dropping out of film school.
Watch the actors and actresses roundtables below:
Below is the first trailer for director Lee Daniels’ (Precious, The Paperboy) “based on a true story” drama The Butler. The film stars Forrest Whitaker as Cecil Gaines, a butler who served at the White House from 1952 to 1986. The trailer is full of familiar faces and plays as some serious awards bait. It certainly looks interesting and seeing Alan Rickman as Reagan was a pleasant surprise.
The film also stars Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Melissa Leo, James Marsden, Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Redgrave, Liev Schreiber, and Robin Williams.
The Butler opens on October 18th.
Yesterday we showed you the poster and synopsis for Kim Jee-Woon‘s The Last Stand, the movie has a trailer now for you to watch below. I’m not going to lie, this looks awesome. I’m a big fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger and having him back in the movies is great for fans of pointless action everywhere.
Schwarzenegger plays the old sheriff of a small town who’s called in when a drug kingpin flees the FBI and tries to make his way to Mexico. The film also stars Forest Whitaker, Rodrigo Santoro, Zach Gilford, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare, and Genesis Rodriguez.
The Last Stand opens January 18, 2013.
Arnold seems to be all over the place these days, you get see him in The Expendables 2 and not too long after in The Last Stand on January 18th next year. Click the thumbnail on the left to see him in all his glory, I’m getting Walking Tall vibes here guys. Funny thing is, the movie also stars Johnny Knoxville, who was in the remake of Walking Tall with The Rock. My point has been made I think.
Look for a trailer this week, or see it in theaters with The Expendables 2 this weekend.
After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.
Here’s the first picture released for The Tomb starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, awesome isn’t it? In the movie Sylvester Stallone stars as an expert security specialist who gets thrown into a prison he designed when he’s wrongly committed for a murder rap in this prison breakout action thriller from director Mikael Hafstrom. Arnold Schwarzenegger co-stars as an inmate.

The Angelina Jolie 60 Minutes Interview, watch it below:
We have a look at the suspense thriller Catch .44 with Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman, and Forest Whitaker. The film will get a limited release December 9th and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on December 20.
Forest Whitaker, Bruce Willis and Malin Akerman lead an all-star cast in this suspense thriller where everyone has an agenda and a Magnum to back it up! For Tes (Akerman) and her two cohorts Kara (Nikki Reed) and Tara (Deborah Ann Woll), the job sounded simple enough: intercept a double-cross drug shipment for their crime boss Mel (Willis) at an isolated diner. But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition. What started as simple instructions has now turned into a deadly cat-and-mouse game – with large guns pointed at everyone.
Check out the trailer below:
So for the past few months I have been rolling my eyes at this talk about the greatest action movie ever to be created, written, and directed by Sylvester Stallone, but it turns out…this thing is real. The Expendables. Okay I guess we all knew it was a few weeks back but I was too lazy to post anything.
Today comes this following news: Mickey Rourke! The recently resuscitated actor, riding THE WRESTLER (Mayors top pick for 2008? Find out soon), has joined Sly’s flick as “an unscrupulous arms dealer who becomes the go-to guy for a group of mercenaries planning to topple a South American dictator.”
The project already has Stallone Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Forest Whitaker, Robert Knepper, Juliana Paes, and possibly Sir Ben Kingsley. Plus a lead female role remains as yet unfilled.
Stallone brought Rourke on board his 2000 remake of GET CARTER, and Rourke just worked with Statham on the remake of the French thriller 13 TZAMETI. I heard Sandra Bullock turned down a role which would have been some Demolition Man reunion, but I guess shes too busy with better things…Jean-Claude Van Damme reportedly passed on the project too, for JCVD he can be forgiven. Release Date: TBA.
Stop! Or my Mom will rip out your throat!
