White House Down Review. Senseless Action Stupidity That's Missing Any Semblance Of Heart

White House Down Review By: MattInRC Does the second White House invasion flick this year demonstrate its necessity, or should Hollywood stop sleeping with itself? Read more to find out. Hollywood is in the business of making entertainment that sometimes finds itself in bed with mirror images of itself. Think Tombstone and Wyatt Earp , both featuring the famous Texas lawman and released in 1993, or 1998's Deep Impact and Armaggedon , neither of which was worth the time. Apparently, Hollywood didn't think we had experienced enough White House invasion films in 2013 with Olympus Has Fallen , as another one in White House Down is about to be released. Unfortunately, one was definitely enough. Low-man on the Capitol Police totem pole John Cale ( Channing Tatum , GI Joe: Rise of Cobra) visits the White House to interview for a job as a Secret Service agent, only to be rebuffed by Agent Finnerty ( Maggie Gyllenhaal , The Dark Knight) for being too working class.

Teaser Trailer For The Counsellor Starring An All Star Cast

As Walter White can tell you, dabbling in drug dealing can be bad for your health. It’s a lesson that cocky lawyer Michael Fassbender clearly hasn’t learned in this first teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counsellor . With Scott directing Cormac McCarthy’s script, the film also comes laden with acting goodness as Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem , Goran Visnjic, Bruno Ganz, Natalie Dormer and even Breaking Bad’s Hank, Dean Norris , show up in a tale of crime, corruption and one man getting into very deep doo-doo. Despite his belief that he can get involved with narco-trading, make a mint and pull the escape cord any time he likes, Fassbender’s main man soon ends up in real trouble, on the run from seriously nasty people. As Bardem says, “You won’t see it coming.” Oh, and because we're nice, here's a bonus look at the first pic of Fassbender from the film... With Scott on slick form and Bardem adding to the series titled Javier’s Mad Hair

Liam Neeson Is Getting Paid For TAKEN 3

Get ready for a third installment of Taken , the franchise launched by EuropaCorp’s Luc Besson and released by 20th Century Fox. I’m told that Liam Neeson is closing a deal in the vicinity of $20 million to reprise his role as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent who used his brutal skills after his daughter was kidnapped in France to be sold into sex slavery. Neeson was a reluctant participant in the first sequel but got paid in the $15 million neighborhood. Now I hear he’s getting another raise, and that EuropaCorp is planning to start production in February. Next will come the effort to make deals with Maggie Grace , who played his daughter in the first two films, and Famke Janssen , who played his ex-wife. They have a script well in the works from Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, who teamed for the first two films. No director has yet been set, but don’t be surprised if Olivier Megaton comes back. He’s the Besson protege who directed the last film, which cost around $45 million and g

A BAND CALLED DEATH Signed Poster Giveaway

Thanks to Draft House Films and their upcoming film A BAND CALLED DEATH , we have th opportunity for one fan to win a signed mini poster for the film. “ Before Bad Brains , the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early '70s formed a band in their spare bedroom, began playing a few local gigs and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed. But this was the era of Motown and emerging disco. Record companies found Death’s music— and band name—too intimidating, and the group were never given a fair shot, disbanding before they even completed one album. Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family love story, A Band Called Death chronicles the incredible fairy-tale journey of what happened almost three decades later, when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger. Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now
