First Look At Ben Affleck In Gone Girl

As marriages go, David Fincher and Gone Girl is shaping up to be a whole lot more auspicious than that of the two characters at the story’s heart. Empire and 20th Century Fox is proud to give you a first-look pic from the film which also features in our new issue, showing Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck), shortly after the disappearance of his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) early in the piece. Note those badges as Nick attempts to galvanise the people of North Carthage, Missouri in his quest to find his missing wife.

Gillian Flynn, the ex-journo behind the bestseller and its adaptation, has conjured a story that oscillates neatly from taut domestic drama and thriller and back again - often in the same beat. It’s perfect Fincher terrain, as anyone who’s seen The Game and Panic Room recently will testify. The central mystery powers the plot, but it’s the cracks in their relationship, deeper than a Perth batting wicket from the get-go, that will make the fallout so scarily relatable.

47 Ronin Could Be One Of The Biggest Hollywood's Bombs

The samurai tentpole, starring Keanu Reeves, opened Christmas Day and is projected to earn under $20 million through Sunday — the worst debut for a $150 million-plus movie in 2013.

The film finished sixth on Thursday with a meager $3.4 million.

Internationally, “47 Ronin” has opened in 14 territories for a total of $10 million through Wednesday. Though the film’s opening two weeks ago in Japan was dire, it finished first in its Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan openings.

Universal, a unit of Comcast Corp., issued a statement confirming the writedown but did not disclose its size.

“Universal Pictures regularly evaluates its film slate for potential adjustment,” the studio said. “In the case of ’47 Ronin,’ we adjusted film costs in previous quarters and as a result our financial performance will not be negatively impacted this quarter by its theatrical performance.”

Universal saw solid performances this year from “Fast and Furious 6″ and “Despicable Me 2.” It’s finishing third in…

Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home toAmerica to train.

The Wolf Of Wall Street Review. Electric Performance By Leonardo DiCaprio

The Wolf Of Wall Street Review By: MattInRC 
An electric performance by Leonardo DiCaprio saves The Wolf of Wall Street from becoming a coked-up hot mess.


As the Oscar season and 2013 concludes, we're treated a rather raucous submission: Martin Scorsese's epic The Wolf of Wall Street, a big, overbearing, coked-up, sexed-up delight of bacchanalia proportions that it almost OD's on itself. This is Gordon Gecko's Wall Street tuned up about 50 notches; the question is, does that make for an Oscar-winning experience? The answer is decidedly yes and no.


Based on the Jordan Belfort autobiography, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the man behind the curtain, an investor and swindler with few morals who rides a wave of drugs, sex, and booze to financial ruin. At film's beginning, he's a wide-eyed stock lapdog looking for a break when a chance lunch meeting with an insane senior broker (Matthew McConaughey) opens Jordan's eyes to real world. Unfortunately Black …

Grudge Match Review. Predictable & Disappointing

Grudge Match Review By: MattInRC
The predictable and disappointing boxing dilemma Grudge Match leaves us down for the count.


The boxing comedy Grudge Match wants to be a warm and upbeat exclamation point on the role of the elderly in today's 24-hour news cycle society, ready to thump their chests in defiance of any preconceived notions. But a movie must be good for that statement to hold water, and sadly this one isn't.


The film features the washed up boxer Henry 'Razor' Sharp (Sylvester Stallone) who fought in two of the greatest boxing matches in history against Billy 'The Kid' McDonnen (Robert DeNiro). But that was in 1983, and when Sharp suddenly retires, McDonnen is denied a chance to break the tie and beat his nemesis. Fast forward to the present, where Sharp has just lost his job at a steel plant, when promoter Dante Slate, Jr. (Kevin Hart) approaches him to lend his voice to a video game. What Sharp doesn't know is that his old enemy McDonnen is…

Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray Review. Looks & Sounds Great

Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC
The sweet-natured Despicable Me 2 is fun family entertainment on Blu-ray, but nothing more.

In 2010, a year dominated by the creepy Toy Story 3 and the predictable Shrek 3, a little animated film called Despicable Me was missed by the Oscar nominating fools over at AMPAS. It wouldn't be long before their error was revealed: heart-warming and downright hilarious, the comedy about an evil madman and his Minions has seen its popularity almost eclipse that of all the animated Oscar candidates of the same year. Its sequel, the likeable but superficial Despicable Me 2, looks and sounds amazing in its home release.


The Movie - 3.5/5
When we left Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell), he had renounced his evil path to raise three loveable adopted girls, but not before stealing the Moon and then returning it. Now, the former madman is busy with soccer games, grilling up meats during Agnes's birthday party, and fending off eligible neighborhood wome…

Fast & Furious 6 Blu-ray Review. One Of The Best Of The Year

Fast & Furious 6  Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC
Fast and Furious 6 is absolutely devilish entertainment on Blu-ray. And we're OK with that.

Before I get into this review, let's get one thing straight: The Fast and The Furious films are not exactly The Italian Job, nor do they try to be. When you pay the big bucks to sit in a film like this, you know what you're going to get - implausible car chases that defy the laws of physics, bro-mance humor, and badass chicks driving fast cars while extras in skimpy clothes and knee-high boots dance behind them. And while it's not the smart, highly-detailed action/drama of a Skyfall, the franchise has matured over the years, settling in on fun action with enough story to keep things moving. As Fast and Furious 6 arrives on Blu-ray, the boys (and girls) are back with enough stunts and twists to satiate anyone's appetite, while every aspect of the Bu-ray release is nothing short of spectacular.
