"You sure you can trust this guy?"
Comic books have become an increasingly popular resource for movies and TV these days, even the ones that lack superhumans dressed in tights. Such is the case for Universal's adaptation of 2 Guns, which is based on the Boom! Studios graphic novel by writer Steven Grant and artist Mat Santolouco. 2 Guns stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as two undercover agents from competing bureaus working to bring down a drug cartel. The only problem is, neither agent knows the other is undercover. In the movie's first trailer, once the two agents discover the others' identity, the pair's real problems begin. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.30.13 by Ryan

Which of this year's actors are worthy of the industry's highest honor?
If the screenplay is the backbone of a movie and the director its eyes, the actors and actresses who bring the characters to life on screen are its heart and soul. A bad script in the hands of wonderful actors can still make for a pretty decent movie, but give a wonderful script to bad actors and you're gonna get a bad movie every time. This year, there were a considerable number of exceptionally well written movies starring talented actors and actresses released by both independent studios and the majors so there are almost too many eligible candidates to consider for Academy Award nominations. We already asked you to tell us which actresses deserve consideration come Oscar time — so far, you've chosen Jennifer Lawrence for her leading role in Silver Linings Playbook and Anne Hathaway for her supporting role in Les Miserables — now tell us which actors are worthy of the movie industry's highest honors, whether Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor.

Washington saves lives after a bender, lines up for an Oscar.
When flying, one hopes the airplane will hold up and that the pilot of said plane is sober enough to handle any problems. That's more or less the crux of the plot to the upcoming drama Flight, which sees Denzel Washington play commercial airline pilot Whip Whitaker, who saves almost an entire flight of passengers despite having to perform an emergency crash landing, but does so with a high level of alcohol in his system.saving all the latest trailers

"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.

The entertainment world is still reeling from the loss of one of the true icons of modern cinema, Tony Scott, who died on Sunday after jumping off of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, CA. Though Scott received few accolades for the movies he directed, he consistently turned out entertaining hits and his kinetic visual style has been influencing other action movie directors since his sophomore effort, Top Gun, became an instant classic in 1986.
In addition to sending Tom "Maverick" Cruise's career into the stratosphere, Scott helped advance fledgling filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's career when he directed the Tarantino-scripted neo-noir crime-romance movie True Romance, which is arguably Scott's best work. Scott was also Denzel Washington's director-of-choice, with five collaborations between the two, starting with Crimson Tide in 1995 and ending with Scott's last movie as a director, Unstoppable, in 2010. more about Tony Scott >> Posted 08.22.12 by BrentJS
The first trailer for Flight has arrived online, offering a look at Denzel Washington's most dramatic role since, arguably, 2007's The Great Debaters. Flight sees Washington play commercial airline pilot Whip Whitaker, whose miraculous crash landing that saved nearly an entire flight of passengers is questioned when alcohol is found to have been in his system. Once his alcoholism is discovered, the entire episode is questioned, with questions arising over what really happened to the plane.
Flight is also a change-of-pace for director Robert Zemeckis, who has been working primarily on motion-capture animation movies like Beowulf and Polar Express for the past decade-plus since 2000's Castaway and What Lies Beneath. watch the trailer >> Posted 06.07.12 by Ryan
Like the title suggests, there needs to be two guns for Universal's comic book adaptation of 2 Guns, and it looks like the studio has picked Denzel Washington to join Mark Wahlberg as the second shootist.
Deadline reports that Washington is in discussions to join the movie, which follows a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer who are unwittingly investigating each other while both are trying to steal mob money. And neither of them know that they are both being set up to steal money from the CIA, and not the mob. It's unknown which of the two roles the actors will play.
2 Guns is based on the Boom! Studios graphic novel by writer Steven Grant and artist Mat Santolouco and was adapted by TV writer Blake Masters. Wahlberg will reunite with his Contraband director Baltasar Kormákur for 2 Guns. Kormákur replaced director David O. Russell (The Fighter) last October, months before Contraband opened at the top spot at the box office. Russell also worked on the script, but it isn't clear if the studio plans to use any of his work or if they will strictly use Masters' script instead.
No production start has been announced for 2 Guns as financing is still being settled. It will be the first pairing of Wahlberg and Washington in a movie. Posted 02.08.12 by Ryan
