With two months to go before fans can gaze upon the series premiere, The CW has put out yet another trailer for Arrow to remind them that the new adventures of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will be gracing the airwaves come this fall. At this point most would rather just see the show, but this spiffy promo is still a welcome sight.
The new trailer is heavy on action and metal guitar riffs – but it also plays up the series’ emphasis on the nature of vigilantism, by asking what kind of person it takes to become a hero and clean up the crime-laden streets of Starling City.
The trailer also does a nice job of quickly and efficiently teasing the dichotomy between young, spoiled Oliver Queen and the hardened, discontented man who returned home after spending five years alone (?) on an island ...

Deadfall is a neo-Noir drama/thriller from Austrian filmmaker Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) that features several Hollywood stars and readily-recognized faces, but no one bankable enough to anchor a big hit on their own (on their own yet, in some cases). This includes Eric Bana (Munich), Olivia Wilde (TRON Legacy), Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), and Kate Mara (American Horror Story), as well as Oscar-nominee Kris Kristofferson (Blade) and Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek (most recently seen in The Help).
The film begins a theatrical release in the U.S. this December, nearly a month after it becomes available On Demand. It’s easier to understand the reason for that, once you’ve watched the official Deadfall trailer (more on that later).
In Deadfall, Bana and Wilde adapt Southern accents to play siblings Addison and Liza, on the run after a successful ...

The moment that fans have been waiting for has finally arrived: Arrested Development season 4 has started filming! And if 2013 is too long to wait to see your favorite Bluths, you’re in luck, as the first set of photos from the premiere have been revealed.
Keeping the Bluth love alive on twitter, Jason Bateman followed up his previous photos of the Bluth sets under construction with the first photo from the Arrested Development season 4 premiere (below). The episode, titled “Michael,” is likely going to feel familiar to fans of the series. Always wanting to run away from (or towards) his chaotic family, it’s only appropriate that we find Michael standing at the airport.
Kenneth Branagh is moving full-steam ahead on his Jack Ryan franchiser restart, wherein he’ll portray a malevolent financial strategist whose attempts to lay ruin to the U.S. economy are complicated by a pre-CIA Ryan (Chris Pine). Branagh is, of course, also directing the project – taking over from long-attached helmer Jack Bender – and working from David Koepp’s script draft.
The actor/filmmaker is searching for an actress to portray Ryan’s (future?) wife, and Keira Knightley is said to be the frontrunner for the role. Knightley strayed into new territory this summer with the indie dramedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, but she’s back to working on lavishing period drama fare this fall with Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina adaptation.
Deadline reports that Felicity Jones ...

The trailer for the long-delayed Red Dawn remake is here, and it immediately establishes a different tone from that of the 1984 original. Outlined with some young faces that have since risen to stardom – Chris Hemsworth (Thor 2/Avengers), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe 2), Isabel Lucas (Transformers 2) – and others about to break into stardom – Josh Peck (ATM), and Tom Cruise’s adopted son, Connor Cruise – Red Dawn (2012) looks like a gritty, high-octane, action-over-substance re-imagining of the ’80s version.
For those unfamiliar, Red Dawn (1984) told the story of high school teens living in a small Colorado town that is, without warning, overrun by an invading army. With their parents and guardians all trapped in internment camps (or worse), a group of teens (led by Pactrick Swayze’s character, Jed Eckert) abscond into the woods and form ...
