Sylvester Stallone can be seen in The Expendables 2 starting this weekend, but Stallone fans would have already received a spring fix had Warner Bros. not decided to delay the action flick Bullet to the Head from its April 13th release date. Now we may have an idea why it was pushed back to 2013 with the arrival of the movie's first trailer.
Based on the French graphic novel Du Plomb dans la Tête (or Bullet to the Head), the movie stars Stallone as a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York cop (Fast Five's Sung Kang) to get revenge on the men who killed their respective partners. While the plotline sounds appropriate enough for a Stallone flick, particularly one of his earlier works, that could be the problem. The trailer appears to be in sync with one of Stallone's previous works — which may not be a problem for those devoted to Stallone's (ahem) body of work — only Bullet to the Head seems less First Blood and more Tango & Cash (which may not be a problem depending on your feelings about the latter). watch the trailer >> Posted 08.19.12 by Ryan
Melissa McCarthy is going from the Judd Apatow-produced Bridesmaids to the Apatow-directed, untitled spin-off of 2007's Knocked Up, THR reports.
The movie, at one point called This is Forty, won't follow the characters played by Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen but will instead focus on Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, who played Heigl's sister and brother-in-law in the 2007 comedy. McCarthy has been cast as the mother of another new cast member, Super 8's fireworks-obsessed Ryan Lee, who attends school with Rudd and Mann's children, played by Mann and Apatow's real-life children Iris and Maude Apatow. The two Apatow kids are likely working on this movie as well, though their names were not included in the report.
Production on the spin-off has already begun, with Apatow (Judd) using his Twitter account to release a photo from the set that showed Rudd on his cell phone. No sign of cast members Albert Brooks, who plays Rudd's dad, or Megan Fox, whose role is unknown. The untitled comedy opens June 1, 2012, giving Apatow plenty of time to figure out the title. stallone getting some company >> Posted 07.09.11 by Ryan
Several projects are lining up new cast members, including The Dictator, the latest comedy from actor Sacha Baron Cohen and director Larry Charles, who previously collaborated on Borat and Bruno.
THR reports that Megan Fox and John C. Reilly are making cameos in the movie, though what roles they will be playing are being kept secret.
The Dictator stars Cohen in dual roles as, clearly, a dictator, one that is deposed and ends up in the U.S., and also the goat herder who replaces him. The first official photo showed Cohen in his Dictator outfit, while new set photos see Cohen cheat during a Olympic-style running event by pulling out a gun, and another sees Cohen possibly as the goat herder character running down a New York street with a plate of food.
The Dictator is reportedly based on the novel Zabibah and the King, written by the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, and opens on May 11, 2012. Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas co-star. Momoa gets a Headshot, a new romeo is found >> Posted 06.22.11 by Ryan
Fast Five is the fifth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, so for those that haven't bothered to watch the previous movies, or only caught one or two along the way, the latest viral video tries to prepare audiences by taking them back through the series one movie at a time.
Starting with 2001's The Fast And The Furious, the video shows Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in the early days of their association, when Walker was an undercover cop trailing Diesel while simultaneously falling for his sister (Jordana Brewster).
In the first sequel, 2003's 2 Fast 2 Furious, Walker returned, but Diesel did not, opening the door for the introduction of Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pierce. Only a brief portion of 2006's The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift is shown, including Sung Kang's introduction as Han and almost all of Diesel's brief cameo.
2009's Fast and Furious reunited Walker and Diesel and its success has brought fans Fast Five, which reunites all the characters from the previous movies as they elude Dwayne (we still want to call him "The Rock") Johnson as a federal agent looking to bring Diesel and Walker into custody. watch the video >> Posted 04.15.11 by Ryan
Director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan are raising the stakes for Fast Five, the fifth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise. Besides re-teaming Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in Brazil—and bringing back franchise favorites Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Sung Kang, and Gal Gadot—Dwayne (we still want to call him "The Rock") Johnson joins the cast as federal agent Luke Hobbs, who is tasked with bringing Diesel and Walker to justice. Johnson told ComingSoon that he has planned on joining Diesel in a movie for a while.

I've known Vin for a long time an we've always talked about doing something together, but as long as it was right and wasn't forced. This felt like the right opportunity to create a formidable adversary for him and one that was believable and that we could get on screen and rumble and dance and have some fun... [Hobbs is] not only efficient in his skills and having that animalistic, visceral way where I can rip your f**king throat out — excuse my language — but I also have the backing of the U.S. government. He's a fun, fun character.
Some may argue that all Fast and the Furious movies are the same, focusing solely on cars, girls, and more cars, but closer inspection reveals some slight differences. The first, 2001's The Fast and the Furious, saw Paul Walker as an undercover cop who infiltrates the L.A. street racing world and meets anti-hero Vin Diesel, forging a partnership that ended for the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, which saw Walker and Tyrese Gibson investigating a money launderer in Miami. Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift took the action to Japan, where Lucas Black filled in for Walker and Diesel in a storyline that was ignored for the 2009 sequel, Fast and Furious, which reunited Walker and Diesel in Los Angeles and reignited the franchise.
Have you found the difference? Location! Where will Walker and Diesel end up in the fifth installment, Fast Five? ComingSoon revealed a synopsis that has the duo teaming up with old friends in a race around the globe. see the full synopsis >> Posted 09.16.10 by Ryan
