Pacino gets out of prison just in time to enjoy the last night of his life.
Catching up with an old friend is great, except when you know you're going to have to kill them or you'll die too. This is the dilemma that Christopher Walken faces in Stand Up Guys. Walken plays Doc, who reunites with his best friend Val (Al Pacino), who has spent the past 28 years in prison for being a "stand up guy" and not ratting out his friends. Unfortunately, Doc is also on the hook with an old mob boss (Breaking Bad's Mark Margolis), who is forcing him to kill Val before the day is up. But will he do it or is the bond between the two friends too strong? The movie's first trailer thankfully leaves the question unanswered, preferring to show snippets of the evening the two men share together, all of which sends Val to confession at one point.trailers that will put you away

Sure, Despicable Me 2 is not due in theaters until Summer 2013 — and hasn't even finished filming yet — but that hasn't stopped the studio from releasing a teaser trailer. Not surprisingly, all we get to see are the minions... a quartet of them rocking out to The Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann" in their trademark minion-speak.
In the sequel to 2010's Despicable Me, Gru (Steve Carell) is set to face a new villain. Javier Bardem was originally cast but had to drop out of the production. Al Pacino stepped in as the villain — a change that sent producer Chris Meledandri over the moon Gru wanted to steal and left him telling Collider: "So exciting! That's a highlight of one's career. That's crazy, wonderful, and incredible." Watch the Teaser Trailer >> Posted 03.02.12 by reelz
Fans of the 1983 classic Scarface likely weren't too pleased to hear in September that Universal Pictures was planning a "new version" of the movie, probably in the same way fans of the 1932 version of Scarface were upset in 1983. No script was in place for the new Scarface, though, reportedly, the latest version will again follow an immigrant who comes to the United States and falls from grace during his search for the American dream.
Universal has finally settled on a screenwriter. Deadline reports that David Ayer (Training Day) has been hired to write the script which won't exactly be about an Italian immigrant named Tony who becomes a crime boss in Chicago or a Cuban immigrant named Tony who becomes a drug kingpin in Miami, but likely will be about an immigrant from somewhere named Tony. For his part, Ayer is pleased with the job, which, he admits, he "sought out". ayer talks about his plans for Scarface >> Posted 12.01.11 by Ryan
There's something comforting about the consistency of Adam Sandler movies. Chances are Sandler will probably do a silly voice, some of Sandler's Saturday Night Live buddies will show up (Rob Schneider, mostly), and, most important to the studio, the movie will make an obscene amount of money.
There's no telling how Sandler's latest, Jack and Jill, will perform at the box office until it opens on Friday, but the other prerequisites seem to be in order. While Schneider is nowhere to be found, SNL alumni Tim Meadows, David Spade, Dana Carvey, and Norm MacDonald appear in the movie and Sandler does a silly voice as Jill, the obnoxious twin sister of family man Jack (also played by Sandler).
Knowing pretty much what you're gonna get can be a good thing, though Sandler movies do have a rather hit or miss quality. Four new preview clips have arrive online for Jack and Jill, which will help audiences figure out where Jack and Jill is a hit, like Happy Gilmore, or a miss, like Little Nicky. watch the clips >> Posted 11.07.11 by Ryan
After initially debuting at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, writer-director Dito Montiel's new crime drama, The Son of No One, finally has a theatrical poster and full-length trailer. The movie stars Montiel's go-to guy, Channing Tatum, who appeared in Montiel's 2006 directorial debut, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, and headlined his 2009 feature, Fighting.
The story revolves around a hard working young cop (Tatum) whose stable life is threatened when an anonymous source reveals new information about the unsolved murder of two boys, information that might reveal a police cover-up. Tatum may still be proving himself as a leading man, but Montiel has surrounded him with a stellar cast that incluces Ray Liotta, Katie Holmes, Tracy Morgan and Academy Award-winners Juliette Binoche and Al Pacino. watch the theatrical trailer >> Posted 09.17.11 by BrentJS
Scarface, one of the true modern classics, is finally making its way to Blu-ray on Sept. 6. But you can watch it the night before that release on ReelzChannel, where the movie is part of our Labor Day Action Movie Marathon.
In looking back on the movie's influence, let's just say the fandom for Scarface has reached some... unusual places. Sure, most successful movies have some sort of paraphernalia associated with them, from posters to stickers to really bad stories written about them on Fanfiction.net. But Scarface's tie-ins have generally gone beyond the point of sanity — or more frequently, good taste.
Behold the 10 tie-ins we found >> Posted 08.31.11 by reelz
Adam Sandler has worked with a variety of co-stars over the years, but his latest co-star might be his greatest challenge, himself.
Jack and Jill is not an adaptation of the nursery rhyme, but instead stars Sandler as twins, playing both Jack, a family man, and his obnoxious sister Jill, who comes out to Los Angeles from the Bronx during Thanksgiving. A new theatrical trailer for the movie has just been released, likely to coincide with the release of The Zookeeper, which Sandler produced.
The movie's cast is filled with Sandler regulars like Allen Covert and Dan Patrick as well as Sandler-movie newcomers like Katie Holmes, who will play Sandler's wife, and Al Pacino, who will play himself. watch the trailer >> Posted 07.08.11 by Ryan
Last week, we reported that Al Pacino may portray an aging rock star in Imagine. Now, it seems Pacino's schedule is continuing to fill with future projects — great news, since the 71-year-old star hasn't been in a theatrical release since 2008. Deadline reports that Pacino will team with director Barry Levinson (The Natural, Rain Man, Wag the Dog) in adapting Philip Roth's 2009 novel The Humbling. more about The Humbling >> Posted 06.13.11 by reelz
The premise: Al Pacino and Lindsay Lohan play father and daughter and through a comedic mishap, they switch bodies.
No, not really, but wouldn't you pay $10.50 to see that?
It was announced today that Pacino was the latest to join the biopic Gotti: Three Generations. Pacino will play Gambino crime family underboss Neil Dellacroce.
Despite Lohan being in the movie, there is a lot of gravitas in the project. In addition to Pacino, Joe Pesci is set to star, along with Kelly Preston and John Travolta. Pesci is said to be playing a "deputy" mobster while Travolta will play Gotti during the 1980s. Preston will play Gotti's wife, Victoria Gotti. Lohan is set to play daughter-in-law Kim Gotti, wife of Gotti Jr. Still need to be cast is the role of Gotti Jr.
The movie will also mark the first time Pacino and Pesci will appear in a movie together (let's cross our fingers and hope they actually share a scene). The two will also appear together in The Irishman, another mob movie that will be directed by Martin Scorsese.The real Gotti Sr. died in 2002 of throat cancer while serving a life sentence.
The movie will be directed by Barry Levinson, who won an Oscar for directing Rain Man. Posted 05.10.11 by Chris
