Written and directed by S. Craig Zahler, Bone Tomahawk is a measured, macabre mash-up that’s equal parts The Searchers and The Hills Have Eyes.

When a tribe of cannibalistic cave dwellers kidnaps settlers from the town of Bright Hope, a team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), sets out to bring them home. Accompanying the sheriff are “backup deputy” Chicory (Richard Jenkins), haughty Indian-hunter Brooder (Matthew Fox), and Arthur O’Dwyer (Patrick Wilson), whose wife (Lili Simmons) was abducted in the raid.

The Movie God   |  

Bone Tomahawk

A trailer was released recently for a movie titled Bone Tomahawk, which is all you really need to know because that’s a pretty bad ass title.

If you require more than just a title, the movie is a horror western about a band of gunslingers from a small town who set out on a mission to rescue captives from the cannibals that kidnapped them. It stars Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Sid Haig, and Sean Young.

‘White House Down’ Trailer: Destroying U.S. Landmarks Is A Habit For Roland Emmerich

White House Down Header

One can’t walk out of a Roland Emmerich film without seeing the White House being annihilated. Sure we’ve seen aliens fire upon it, colossal waves wash over it, and climate changes freeze it, but White House Down will be director’s first film that is directly set in the historic landmark.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx play Secret Service agent John Cale and the President of the United States, respectively, who must work together to find out why international terrorists brought the White House down, what their true intentions are, and to save Cale’s daughter Emily (Joey King). A new four-minute trailer has popped up online, and it appropriately shows how the White House is brought down in a way that only Emmerich could think of, which is massive.

Check out the new trailer for White House Down below.

‘White House Down’ Trailer: Like ‘Die Hard’ In The White House But With Channing Tatum
eelyajekiM   |  

White House Down Poster Header

Don’t adjust your computer screen or think you are suffering from déjà vu: White House Down is like another Die Hard in the White House kind of film, only thing is, it looks like the production budget for the film is a lot higher than the $80 million that was spend to make Olympus Has Fallen, Antoine Fuqua’s recently released political action film starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman.

Watch the trailer here below.

The plot is pretty much the same, too: A secret service agent’s knowledge of the Presidential detail and White House will aid him in his mission to save the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx) from certain death. The opening quote about the country’s dark secrets bringing about our nation’s downfall could also be a possible plot twist in the film, but for now, let’s just go with the fact that White House Down is Die Hard in the White House, except with younger and sexier faces.

Tom Cruise’s ‘Jack Reacher’ Might Not Get A Sequel Due To Low Grosses
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Jack Reacher and Old One Eye

Okay folks, it’s confession time. I thought Jack Reacher, the Christopher McQuarrie-directed adaptation of Lee Child‘s novel One Shot that courted major controversy among fans of Child’s books when Tom Cruise was cast as Reacher even though he hardly fit the character’s description as a blonde, hulking bruiser who spoke softly and carried a big stick called himself, was one of the finest and most undervalued movies of 2012.

McQuarrie turned the novel into a classical, old school action thriller that would not be out of place in the filmographies of directors like John Frankenheimer and Don Siegel. The fist fights, shootouts, and car chases were executed and filmed with lean, professional precision and edited with fewer cuts than you would find in most modern action scenes. I wasn’t a fan of the Reacher books but nevertheless I thought Cruise gave a cool, forceful, and at times hilarious performance as a human killing machine with far more brains, wit, and soul than you would expect. He had able support from Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Robert Duvall, and famed German filmmaker Werner Herzog as the movie’s villain, the Zec.

‘Turbo’ Trailer: Ryan Reynolds Is Going The Distance, He’s Going For Speed

Turbo Header

A snail that dreams of being as fast as a NASCAR race car is perhaps the most clique thing ever. Obviously it can work as some sort of inspiration/motivational story for a younger audience, and thankfully DreamWorks Animation saw the potential in that and created Turbo.

The film centers on a snail (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) who dreams of racing in the big leagues. And the trailer leads you to believe he can do it up until the end that is. Of course this being a teaser, there isn’t a whole lot to get into. Check out the first trailer and synopsis for Turbo below.

Movie Review: Killing Them Softly
Adam Frazier   |  

Killing Them Softly PosterKilling Them Softly
Directed by Andrew Dominik
Written by Andrew Dominik
Starring: Brad Pitt, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta
The Weinstein Company
Rated R | 97 Minutes
Release Date: November 30, 2012

Written and directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Killing Them Softly is an adaptation of George V. Higgins‘ 1974 crime novel, Cogan’s Trade.

When South Boston low-lifes Frankie (Scoot McNairy) and Russell (Ben Mendelsohn) break into an illegal card game and steal the cash, they attract the attention of contract killer Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt).

The underground poker circuit is run by low-level mobster Markie Trattman (Ray Liotta), who becomes an immediate suspect because he robbed his own card game a few years back. The two thugs assume the blame will fall on Trattman, leaving them free from mob retaliation. As you might imagine, they assume wrong.

The South Boston mob sends a representative (Richard Jenkins) to sit down with Cogan to work out the details of Frankie and Russell’s demise, and what to do with Markie – who is living on borrowed time after his previous stunt.

Killing Them Softly is set in the months leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, where writer/director Andrew Dominik repeatedly hits us over the head with comparisons between a financial crisis, a corrupt political system, and the violent circumstances of Higgins’ crime-drama.

Watch Now: First Trailer For Andrew Dominik’s ‘Killing Them Softly’ Starring Brad Pitt
eelyajekiM   |  

Brad Pitt in Killing Them Softly

Brad Pitt is a man going around taking names, and he decides who to free and who to blame. The first trailer for Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly, which makes excellent use of Johnny Cash’s “When A Man Comes Around,” has been released. The crime flick follows Pitt and James Gandolfini as professional hit men trying to recover money that was lost in a raid made by two low-life crooks. Check it out below.

The film marks Dominik’s return as a director after an eight-year absence, so there really isn’t much to say after watching the trailer, because it speaks for itself. Killing Them Softly made its official debut over at Cannes where critics praised it. It certainly has earned my attention.
