City of Films

Here is the first trailer for director Peter Segal’s (The Longest Yard) upcoming comedy Grudge Match.  It’s Sylvester Stallone vs. Robert De Niro, Rocky Balboa vs. Jake La Motta, or movie reference vs. movie reference.  I wish this was a drama, Stallone and De Niro could have easily pulled it off.  Now we are getting

KILLING SEASON Trailer – Why De Niro, Why?

City of Films

Robert De Niro as an American war veteran.  John Travolta as a Serbian war veteran with a funny beard.  Both alone in the woods as they try to kill each other and settle old scores.  Sold, or so you’d think.  This trailer for Killing Season unfortunately doesn’t do much to sell the film.  In fact

THE FAMILY Has a Trailer – Why’d You Kill The Plumber?

City of Films

Robert De Niro is a great actor and has appeared in some of the greatest films ever.  I think we can all agree on that.  Unfortunately, we can also agree that his output of the last 15 years (with a few exceptions) has been pretty lackluster.  It seems as though he’s just coasting along, acting

Pardon? RAGING BULL 2 Is Filming Right Now, For True You Guys

City of Films

The Internet Movie Database says it’s real, Variety says it’s real – but I don’t want to believe it.  Raging Bull II is being directed by Martin Guigui, who seems to works with a lot of talent in movies that seem to disappear overnight (Beneath the Darkness, Changing Hearts).  It’s a prequel/sequel to Martin Scorsese’s

RED LIGHTS Trailer Starring Cillian Murphy and Robert De Niro

City of Films

Director Rodrigo Cortes (Buried) is back with Red Lights starring Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver and Robert De Niro.  It looks promising enough, although De Niro could be phoning it in again, it’s hard to tell as he’s hardly in the trailer.
