"We're not a hugging family."
Earlier this month, the teaser trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise, was released online and, while brief on story, showed that the return of John McClane (Bruce Willis) was going to be filled with action.
The latest, international trailer borrows most of the teaser, but begins by slowing down the proceedings to show that A Good Day to Die Hard is a Die Hard movie after all. Starting with the use of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the trailer is filled with homages to the first movie: McClane going to a new place for the first time, chatting with his driver about being a cop, and a group of European men causing explosions. There's also the inclusion of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who played McClane's daughter in 2007's Live Free or Die Hard, though, this time around, it's McClane's son Jack (Spartacus: Blood and Sand actor Jai Courtney) that needs saving. Or does he? trailers that will knock your shoes off

"It's not the years...it's the mileage."
Though the novelty of The Expendables' all-star cast of '80s and '90s action heroes wore off somewhat by the time The Expendables 2 hit theaters, the resurgence of aging tough-guy actors continues with the success of Liam Neeson's Taken 2, which beat down the competition this past weekend. And there's more to come. Ah-nuld's getting back in the game with The Last Stand and Bruce Willis is dusting off John McClane for a fifth go-round in A Good Day to Die Hard. But, not all aging actors can continue to pull off the kind of tough-guy roles they played in their youth. Tell us which over-50 actors still have what it takes to beat up the bad guys and come back for more.

John McClane is back. And so is John McClane.
In the world of television, sitcoms are often granted a longer life by introducing more children to the family unit or a new character to the workplace. The Die Hard franchise seems to be no different, with more children being added in each new sequel. John McClane (Bruce Willis) was tasked with saving his estranged daughter (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) from cyber-terrorists in 2007's Live Free or Die Hard and, in the fifth installment, A Good Day to Die Hard, Willis has to travel to Russia to get his son, John "Jack" McClane Jr. (Spartacus: Blood and Sand actor Jai Courtney), out of jail only to become involved in an effort to stop international terrorists or thieves of an European nature. The sequel won't be out until next year, but there's already a teaser trailer online that shows the McClane boys are going to see their fair share of action.yippie ki-yay trailers

In Looper, writer-director Rian Johnson's (Brick) new time-tripping action thriller opening this Friday, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL) plays a hitman ("looper") tasked with terminating his own future self (Bruce Willis), who is sent back in time so that there will be no trace of the crime in the future. Talk about a head trip! This plot has "time paradox" written all over it. If JGL kills Willis, wouldn't he remember that happening and try to prevent it from happening when he grows up to be Willis? And, if Willis kills JGL, wouldn't he simply cease to exist?
Looper isn't the first movie to delve into the complex moral and metaphysical conundrums inherent in time travel. In The Terminator, Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) is sent back in time by John Connor, the future leader of the resistance against the machines, and ends up becoming Connor's dad. And in Back to the Future, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) goes back in time to save his friend and is almost erased from history when his mother (Lea Thompson) starts crushing on him.

Rian Johnson's (Brick) new movie, Looper, opened the currently ongoing Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last week, making it the first sci-fi movie to kick off the festival. The time-tripping action thriller stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a hitman who disposes of victims sent to him from the future who finds himself tasked with terminating his own future self, played by action legend Bruce Willis. The stars hit the red carpet at TIFF for the movie's world premiere and ReelzChannel was on hand to chat with Gordon-Levitt, Willis and Emily Blunt about what attracted them to the movie and why time travel is really just a "springboard" for the more complex and "emotional" themes of movie.

One of the hallmarks of he-man action movies of the '80s and '90s is the one-liner, that sometimes cheesy, often awesome, but definitely memorable signature line, typically delivered just before or immediately after a knock-down, drag-out fight between the hero and the villain (or one of the villain's many henchmen). It's hard to say exactly when the one-liner became a necessary fixture of action movies, but we'll give the credit (or blame, depending upon your point of view) to Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose movies have generated so many classic zingers that they're too numerous to mention. The practice was so common by 1991, in fact, that the Bruce Willis-led action movie The Last Boy Scout ends with Willis' character telling his new sidekick (Damon Wayans), "This is the '90s. You can't just walk up and slap a guy, you have to say something cool first."
With so many veteran action stars appearing in The Expendables 2 — exploding onto movie screens nationwide today! — we thought it would be fun to look back at some of the awesome one-liners delivered by various cast members in some of their more iconic roles.

During the Sony press conference for Looper held this past weekend during the San Diego Comic-Con, actress Emily Blunt said that when she was first introduced to Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL) on the set of the movie, the makeup and prosthetics he was wearing to look more like Bruce Willis were so convincing that she thought she was talking to a body double and not the actor himself. That has to be comforting news for Rian Johnson (Brick), the writer and director of the time-tripping thriller about hitmen ("loopers") who kill victims sent to the them from the future, but for JGL looking like Willis wasn't enough — he wanted to talk like him, as well.

The thing I focused on most was his voice. Why? The voice is what I look for first and foremost with just about every character I play. I don’t have an answer why. And Bruce was really accommodating and open and collaborative in helping me do that. He recorded himself reading some of my voice-over lines so that I could hear how he would sound saying them, which I thought was really cool. But mostly it was just hanging out with him, getting to know him, having dinner, talking about music or anything else was probably what was the most useful in trying to get a sense in what I was then going to portray.
Only one day after being treated to new footage from writer-director Rian Johnson's (Brick) upcoming time-tripping sci-fi gangster thriller, Looper, with the online debut of the international trailer for the movie, Sony Pictures has released a new domestic theatrical trailer containing even more new footage.
Looper is set in a near future world in which highly-specialized hitmen called "loopers" earn vast amounts of money by disposing of victims sent to them from gangsters living thirty years in the future. One such looper is Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who has the shock of his life when his latest victim turns out to be his own future self (Bruce Willis). Despite the urgings of his future self, young Joe aims to carry out the contract, which puts the two Joes at odds with one another. Will youth triumph over experience? We won't know the answer to that until Looper hits theaters, but from the looks of the new trailer it appears that elder Joe's knowledge of his younger self gives him the edge. That, and the geezer fights dirty. watch the new trailer >> Posted 06.29.12 by BrentJS
