Chris Pratt in Jurassic World

With the massive success of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and his upcoming role in Jurassic World, Chris Pratt is quite the popular commodity right now. Recently he was offered the role of Nathan Drake in the planned movie adaptation of the Uncharted video game series, but turned down the offer.

Now comes word that Pratt has entered into early negotiations to star in Magnificent Seven, MGM’s remake of the classic 1960 western directed by John Sturges and starring Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, and Eli Wallach. If all works out Pratt would play a character named Farraday, and would join Denzel Washington on the cast.

‘The Equalizer’ Trailer: Denzel Washington Takes Down The Russian Mob In Record Time

The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington

Denzel Washington was one of the best things in Antoine Fuqua‘s Training Day, and the two are reuniting once more for an adaptation of The Equalizer, an 80’s TV show that follows a former special ops who redeems himself for his past sins by performing random acts of kindness for people in desperate need of help. And since this is a film from the guy who brought us Training Day and Olympus Has Fallen, Washington will help with severe brutality.

Sure it’s not completely original, but when Washington reteams with the director who helped him win an Academy Award, and see him pull off killer moves while timing himself, what more do you need?

Hit the jump to see the new trailer.

Denzel Washington Turned Down Role In ‘Fast & Furious 7’

Denzel Washington Turns Down Role In Fast and Furious 7

The headline is no joke. Denzel Washington was offered a role in Fast & Furious 7 and its follow-up, but ended up turning it down. If this is the kind of talent that Universal is aiming for, the confirmed actor for the James Wan-directed film should be in or around the same tier. But don’t be surprised if it’s not.

Those who stuck around for the end of the Fast and Furious 6 (or Furious 6 as it was seen on its title card), saw that Jason Statham had killed a member of Dom Toretto’s crew and was seeking revenge on the rest for what they had done to his brother, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), in the film.

2 Guns Movie Poster2 Guns
Director: Baltasar Kormákur
Screenwriter: Blake Masters
Cast: Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos, Fred Ward
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 109 Minutes
Release Date: August 2, 2013

Had 2 Guns been released in 1997, it would have been directed by Renny Harlin or Sheldon Lettich with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman Wesley Snipes as counter-terrorist operatives framed for a crime they didn’t commit.

The film’s tag line would be something like “They don’t play by the rules,” and the trailer would highlight the unlikely duo as a highly effective tag-team of street smarts and technical precision, dealing out one-liners and helicopter spin-kicks amidst explosions and shoot-outs.

Luckily, it isn’t 1997 – because I would be in middle school – and 2 Guns is an entirely solid, straightforward “Movie for Guys Who Like Movies” directed by Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur (101 Reykjavík, Contraband). Based on a comic book series of the same name published by BOOM! Studios, 2 Guns stars Denzel Washington as DEA Agent Bobby Trench and Mark Wahlberg as NCIS Agent Marcus Stigman, two undercover operatives who are unknowingly investigating each other.

Movie Review: Flight: Robert Zemeckis’ Daring Return To Live-Action

Flight movie posterFlight
Directed by Robert Zemeckis
Starring Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly, Nadine Velazquz, John Goodman, Bruce Greenwood, Garcelle Beauvais and Justin Martin
Release Date: November 2, 2012

A mystical and unflagging perseverance allows airline pilot Captain Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) to crash-land a malfunctioning airline jet in an open field. It is evidenced that he is talented as a pilot. It is his calmness, though, that is most glaring and jarring. Remaining unshaken by the catastrophe he finds himself in, Whitaker is not self-deluding when he projects a demeanor that is reminiscent of a great Greek God. He constantly signals out demands that he needs from his crew, all of whom respond but with immense dread. But he remains calm, almost as if he knows he is not going to die. Each of the 102 people onboard his plane are all thrown into an uncontrolled panic as well. All of them are expecting death and six of them eventually will die. As the plane continues its descent, Whitaker becomes more resilient, more inspired and cockier, almost as if he is scoffing at imminent death.

Flight starring Denzel WashingtonFlight
Directed by Robert Zemeckis
Written by John Gatins
Starring Denzel Washington, Kelly Reilly, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Bruce Greenwood, Melissa Leo
Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 139 Minutes
Release Date: November 2nd, 2012

Airline captain William “Whip” Whitaker (Denzel Washington) wakes up in a hotel room with flight attendant Katerina Marquez (Nadine Velazquez, FX’s The League).

Amidst a landfill of empty glass bottles and crushed aluminum cans, Whip smokes a joint and downs the half-empty bottle of beer on his nightstand.

Katerina navigates the wreckage, casually searching for her clothes. Her perfect nude form tip-toes around the room as Whip gets his bearings. Hungover from a sleepless night of sex, drugs, and reckless room service abuse, the still-drunk Whip opens his bloodshot eyes, rolls up a $100 bill, and snorts a couple lines of coke to shake the cobwebs.

Seconds later, Whitaker is a sharp-dressed man in his pilot uniform, strutting through the airport. Scheduled to commandeer a commercial aircraft from Orlando to Atlanta this morning, the captain takes his seat behind the controls with rookie copilot Ken Evans (Brian Geraghty). Whip chases black coffee and aspirin discreetly with vodka and orange juice and lets Evans fly the plane while he takes a nap.

Near Atlanta, the plane enters a steep dive, jolting Whip awake. After exhausting all other options, the liquored-up Whip rolls the plane into an inverted position (flying upside-down) to bring it out of the nosedive, then maneuvers the plane right-side up just before crash-landing in a field. The media hails Whitaker as a hero (reminiscent of Capt. Sully Sullenberger), but there’s the troubling matter of a toxicology report that, if made public, could ruin Whitaker’s heroic reputation.

Universal Green Lights ‘Safe House’ Follow-Up

Safe House Headed Towards Prequel or Sequel

When you get the kind of numbers that the spy action thriller Safe House grossed, which was near $202 million worldwide, it’s probably a safe bet that a studio would want to move forward with a follow-up. And that’s what Universal is doing. They have already hired the film’s original writer David Guggenheim to write a draft for what will either be a sequel or a prequel.

And why is it unclear whether it will be a sequel or a prequel? Well there are some potential spoilers that explain why, so if you haven’t seen the movie already, don’t hit the jump.
