LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Eva Mendes Rumored For Return in Eighth Fast and Furious

Dom’s family might get another member. By Brandon Wolfe The Fast and Furious franchise has made a wonderful habit of taking the characters from its largely disconnected initial trio of films and banding them all together as a unit, but one notable exception from Team Toretto has been Eva Mendes’ customs agent, Monica Fuentes, who played a major role in 2 Fast 2 Furious and popped up in a mid-credits bit in Fast Five , but has been MIA otherwise. That may change for the upcoming eighth film, according to an Instgram post from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe. "FAST & FURIOUS 8 #RUMOR With #fast7 now in the record books, the upcoming NY based #Fast8 story will depend on whether they can bring back Eva Mendes' character: US Customs Agent Monica Fuentes." The proposed idea for the currently-untitled Fast 8 is to take the team to the congested streets of New York City, and if this rumor pans out, it sounds like Mendes will be playing a crucial role in whatever Do

Ryan Gosling Directorial Film "Lost River" To Hit Theaters

Ryan Gosling 's directorial debut Lost River will hit theaters after all. Lost River , which Gosling also wrote, centers on a single mother ( Hendricks ) who enters a dream-like world while her son struggles to make ends meet and survive. The film was met with mixed reactions at Cannes. THR's film critic Todd McCarthy wrote: "As beautifully presented as the imagery is, however, none of it registers deeply because it all seems like borrowed goods. It’s flashy enough to engage the eye, but the experience is akin to flipping through a gorgeous art photography book featuring an assortment of artists rather than one." Warner Bros. has confirmed plans for a limited release for the film, which stars Christina Hendricks and Saoirse Ronan . Variety incorrectly reported on Monday that the film would be released only on VOD. Warner Bros., which acquired Lost River at the Cannes Film Festival in May, will release the film in theaters in New York and L.A. in the secon

The Place Beyond The Pines Review. Missed Opportunities

The Place Beyond The Pines Review By: MattInRC Overly long and honestly dull, Pines violates a cardinal rule of film-making.  Warning: major spoilers ahead. On paper, the character drama The Place Beyond The Pines seems to have a lot going for it: a deep and very talented excellent cast with a sharp director whose 2010 Blue Valentine was a critical success. But that's where this overly ambitious film about fathers, sons, and the strange path of life runs off the rails, while violating a cardinal rule of film-making along the way. When motorcycle daredevil Luke ( Ryan Gosling , Drive) learns that a one-night stand with fan Romina ( Eva Mendes , Training Day) has produced a son,. he quits the carnival and tries to make a normal life. Unfortunately, he soon realizes that his only option is to partner up for a series of bank heists with his boss. But a deadly meeting between he and newbie police officer Avery Cross ( Bradley Cooper , Limitless) ends with Luke in

GIRL IN PROGRESS Movie Review By: RAMA

GIRL IN PROGRESS Movie Review By: RAMA What did RAMA this of GIRL IN PROGRESS ? GIRL IN PROGRESS is the perfect mother’s day movie, not because it’s lovey dovey and all warmhearted, but because it’s a wake up call to parents who may not have been ready when they became parents but now they have to step up, wear the role, and take on the responsibilities for their children’s sake. Eva Mendes and Cierra Ramirez are terrific, their chemistry is convincing and even though parts of the story may be a bit touchy for younger viewers, especially its depiction and explanation of a girl’s rite of passage, GIRL IN PROGRESS is there to remind us what’s truly important in our lives and it can only be achieved when self-centered mindset is put aside… Grace ( Eva Mendes ) is a single mom. She is too busy juggling work, bills, and the very married Dr. Harford ( Matthew Modine ), to give her daughter, Ansiedad ( Cierra Ramirez ) the attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad’s English te

Colin Farrell As Quaid In Total Recall

Are you ready for your first official look at Colin Farrell as the new Doug Quaid ? He's a little thinner than Arnold Schwarzenegger's version, but Farrell's got the "what the hell's going on" stare down to a science! The new Total Recall is directed by Len Wiseman (of the Underworld series) and takes place in an area of nation-states that include Euromerica and New Shanghai. It's here that factory worker Douglas Quaid (Farrell) begins to believe that he's a spy but doesn't know which side has hired him. The first official photo from Total Recall appears in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, where Farrell describes the movie as "much less jokey" than the 1990 version. He claims that the tone will be completely different than what we saw in the past. "There's not as much tongue-in-cheek," he says. Judging from this photo, Total Recall has plenty of dark moments. It looks as if Quaid has been caught red-handed tryin

John Cho AKA Harold To Star In Total Recall

John Cho (Star Trek) has joined Total Recall , Sony’s remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi action film that begins shooting Monday in Toronto. Cho will play McClane, the smooth-talking rep for the mind-messing company that tempts Colin Farrell’s Douglas Quaid to implant fantastic memories into his brain. Bob McClane  was originally played by Ray Barker in the " Total Recall " “ Bob McClane ,” a Rekall manager and sales agent who convinces Quaid to buy an “Ego Trip” memory implant. Bryan Cranston has been cast as the futuristic villain played by Ronny Cox in the original film, and Ethan Hawke will have a small role as well. Bill Nighy , who worked with Recall‘s director Len Wiseman on the Underworld franchise, remains in talks, reportedly to play the revolutionary hero, Kuato . Please Leave A Comment- Source- EW

Ethan Hawke To Make A Cameo In Total Recall Remake

Ethan Hawke is boarding Total Recall , Columbia’s Colin Farrell-starring remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie. The original movie, based on the Philip K. Dick story, We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, followed a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air. The new story ditches the Martian storyline and instead involves nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai, with Douglas Quaid (Farrell) a factory worker in the latter who begins to believe he is a spy, although he doesn't know for which side. The movie has been casting up ahead of its June start in Toronto with Bryan Cranston playing the villain. Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are in negotiations for the female leads. Hawke’s role i

Kate Beckinsale Offered Role Of Lori In Total Recall

Kate Beckinsale has been offered one of the female lead roles alongside Colin Farrell in the Sony Pictures remake Total Recall .  She's been offered to play Lori , who was portrayed in the 1990 Paul Verhoeven-directed actioner by Sharon Stone . In fact, that role really launched Stone's star after she transformed from the happy spouse of Douglas Quaid ( Arnold Schwarzenegger ) into someone completely different. Both that role and the role of Melina (played in the original by Rachel Ticotin) has drawn high interest from actresses. I've heard that Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson are the serious contenders for the latter role. Beckinsale wasn't among the names most often mentioned among actresses who read for Lori. But she certainly has a track record with the film's director, Len Wiseman . They're married, and before that, worked together on the Underworld films. Beckinsale, who just wrapped Contraband with Mark Wahlberg, is also attached to star in The Tri

Bryan Cranston Cast As Cohaagen In Total Recall Reboot

Colin Farrell is toplining the action movie, which is being directed by Len Wiseman and produced by Neal Moritz and his Original Film banner. The original 1990 movie was based on a Philip K. Dick story, "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale." The film followed a man haunted by a recurring dream of journeying to Mars who buys a literal dream vacation from a company called Rekall Inc., which sells implanted memories. The man comes to believe he is a secret agent and ends up on a Martian colony, where he fights to overthrow a despotic ruler controlling the production of air.

Total Recall Female Lead. Who Is It Going To Be?

Sony Pictures is casting up its Total Recall remake, which Len Wiseman will direct with Colin Farrell starring in the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger . There are two major female roles in the film, and several top actresses are vying for them. First, there is the role of Lori , who started out the 1990 Paul Verhoeven-directed original as the happy homemaker wife of Douglas Quaid, only to transform into the bride from hell. That's the role that really launched the star of Sharon Stone (who would star in Verhoeven's Basic Instinct) and I'm told that Kate Bosworth and Inglourious Basterds' Diane Kruger [UPDATE: Kruger's reps said she opted out of the reading] are reading this week for that role. Those readings began yesterday. There is also the role of Melina , which was originated by Rachel Ticotin , playing the woman who helps the protagonist get to the bottom of the futuristic scandal on Mars. I'm told that Eva Mendes and Paula Patton are re

THE OTHER GUYS Autotuna Remix

Danson drives it after the criminals and meticulously slingshots the trapped car out the other side of the bus (with Highsmith firing the whole time) and crashing into the Trump T

Ghost Rider 2: Spirt Of Vengeance Update

GHOST RIDER 2: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE Update. As you can tell by looking over his resume, De Luca has produced over 50 films and he’s got tons of projects in development. While I’ll be posting updates on Metal Gear Solid, Butter, Fright Night, Dracula Year Zero and tons of other things in the coming days, tonight is all about Ghost Rider 2. For those who don’t know, the sequel to Ghost Rider is moving ahead full steam with a script by David Goyer. According to De Luca, “We have an outline that David wrote that kind of adapts his 2001 script into today’s times with incorporating kind of an original idea of Nic’s.” We talked about whether or not Mark Steven Johnson will be back directing and if Eva Mendes would return as Roxanne Simpson. Oh, and he told me the tentative title is Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. So much more after the jump: Here’s the thing, if you’re a fan of Ghost Rider, the interview you’re about to read should make you extremely excited for a sequel. Everything

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans From the moment it was announced, there was something a tad loony about the idea of remaking -- or revisiting or reinventing or whatever they want to call it -- Abel Ferrara's 1992 "Bad Lieutenant," with Werner Herzog , no less, directing. Well, lo and behold, there's also something rather loony about the finished film itself. But there's also a sort of deadpan zaniness, stemming from a steadfast conviction in its own absurdity, that gives " Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans " a strange distinction all its own. Not at all an art film, the picture lacks sufficient action to sate the appetites of sensation seekers, but star Nicolas Cage 's name means enough to offer some short-run B.O. traction and good home-viewing market returns. Already on Vicodin for back pain, Cage's Lt. Terence McDonaugh pursues the case of five Senegalese illegals rubbed out in an obvious drug-world hit. The search for their
