Now that the action movie Olympus Has Fallen, has opened (in second place, we'll note), promotion has begun on the next "Die Hard in the White House" movie, namely Columbia's White House Down. This time, the actor playing the secret service agent who must protect the President from a terrorist or paramilitary group won't be Gerard Butler but Channing Tatum, who is on a roll after having three hits last year: The Vow, 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike.
In fact, the marketing for White House Down heavily features Tatum, who is the lone actor on the movie's poster, however, the movie's first trailer also features Jamie Foxx, who plays the President. Starting with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln, the trailer reveals that the "common man put into an impossible situation" scenario that begged the "Die Hard in the White House" synopsis is even more at work here than Olympus Has Fallen. In fact, Tatum is not even a secret service agent, but a man who doesn't get the secret service job and is caught in a tour of the building with his daughter when the takeover happens. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.27.13 by Ryan
"Say, what is your name, boy?"
At this point, it's quite possible that many are familiar with writer-director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Southern" Django Unchained. The upcoming movie's many TV spots, trailers and international trailers have offered the essence of the movie's plot: former slave Django (Jamie Foxx) joins German dentist King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) in the bounty hunting business so he can search for his wife (Kerry Washington), who is now the property of lecherous slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The latest (and last) theatrical trailer for Django Unchained doesn't reveal any secrets, but getting fresh looks at DiCaprio's portrayal of Candie and more shots of Foxx shooting or whipping enemies into submission only offers further proof of why we're so excited to see the movie next month.all the latest trailers

After deciding to reboot following Sam Raimi's exit from his Spider-Man franchise, Sony/Columbia successfully reignited the series with The Amazing Spider-Man, which arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray today.
Critics cited the reboot's lack of an "untold story" that was promoted to be the movie's significant change from the previous trilogy, but there's one category where the reboot has been able to separate itself from its predecessors: villains. While Raimi's movies hinted at the inevitable arrival of the Lizard, The Amazing Spider-Man delivered, and it would appear that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also bring a new villain to the big screen: Electro.
Jamie Foxx (Ray) is rumored to be up for the role, with Foxx tweeting a not-so-subtle hint that's he's accepted the part, and director Marc Webb quickly following suit. Even though Amazing Spider-Man 2 is about a year and a half away, we thought the time was right to see which of the two villains is a better foe for your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). And there's only one place for the two villains to face off: the Character Cagematch! review their strengths and weaknesses before voting in our poll >> Posted 11.06.12 by Ryan
Who should play Peter Parker's best frienemy?
Even though director Marc Webb has expressed some reluctance about leaping right back into the swing of things (pardon the pun) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 so soon after The Amazing Spider-Man, plans for the sequel are moving right along. We recently learned that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) has been offered the role of Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker's college girlfriend and eventual wife in the Marvel comic books and his paramour in the Sam Raimi-directed trilogy. And, only days ago, Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx (Ray) teased fans by tweeting that he had "dressed up as Electro for Halloween," the villain known to be menacing Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) in the sequel, a bold casting move that Webb seemed to confirm when he later called Foxx an "electrifying" actor.
The only other new character that is known to be appearing in the sequel and that does not yet have an actor's name attached is Harry Osborn, son of Norman Osborn, whose company was directly responsible for the creation of both Spider-Man and the Lizard (Rhys Ifans). In the comic books, as in Raimi's movies, Harry was Peter's friend until his father, wearing the guise of the Green Goblin, is killed during a battle with Spider-Man. Harry then takes up the mantle of the Goblin and sets out to destroy Spider-Man. James Franco got his big break by landing the role of Harry in Raimi's trilogy. Who do you think has what it takes to fill Franco's shoes and go tit for tat with Garfield in the sequel?

"Adult supervision is required."
Not since July's extended TV spot have we seen new footage from Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Southern" Django Unchained, but a new trailer has arrived online and we couldn't be happier about it.
The first half plays like the other trailers that have arrived so far, showing the partnership between freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and German bounty hunter King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), as they work on their respective missions of vengeance. Schultz is looking to bring down the hood-wearing Brittle Brothers, while Django is looking to free his wife (Kerry Washington) from the villainous slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The second half is where more new footage arrives, with more footage of Django, who reveals he's getting "dirty" to take care of his business, and more of DiCaprio, who's Candie is the kind of charming villain audiences will love to hate, perhaps not unlike Waltz's Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds. There's also more of Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Candie's loyal house slave Stephen, and warns Candie of the dubious intentions of Schultz and Django, while the very first footage of Jonah Hill is also revealed (surprise, his role looks comedic). the latest trailers, unchained

The unveiling of the first trailer for the upcoming Django Unchained last week was a cause for celebration, particularly for fans of writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Now there's more to celebrate: New footage has been revealed in the international trailer.
Described as a "Southern" — combining the Western genre with a pre-Civil War American South setting — Django Unchained follows the unlikely partnership of freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and German bounty hunter King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) as they travel the countryside, each needing the other to achieve his individual revenge. While the international trailer offers more footage of Django and Schultz, there's also more of Leonardo DiCaprio relishing his role as the villainous slave owner Calvin Candie, as well as a (very brief) first look at Samuel L. Jackson, who was all but ignored in the first trailer. watch the trailer >> Posted 06.13.12 by Ryan
Forget the photos. Forget the teaser poster, the additional photos, and the trailer teaser. The first full trailer for director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained is now online and it delivers.
Described as a "Southern," Django Unchained seems less a mix of Spaghetti Western set in the pre-Civil War South and more a vengeful action movie on par with Tarantino's previous effort, Inglourious Basterds. Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz pair as a freed slave and a German bounty hunter, respectively, and Leonardo DiCaprio looks like he's relishing his chance to play an evil slave-owning villain and object of Foxx's vengeance. watch the trailer >> Posted 06.07.12 by Ryan
Despite the somewhat troubling number of actors who accepted roles in Quentin Tarantino's latest movie, Django Unchained, only to drop out at the last minute — Kevin Costner, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sacha Baron Cohen and Kurt Russell all exited due to "scheduling conflicts" — producer Harvey Weinstein last week promised that Tarantino's revenge-driven "Southern" (a "Spaghetti Western" set in the Deep South) may yet be "adding a couple of 'surprise' co-stars." Who those co-stars might be was anyone's guess until a new batch of images from the movie revealed that one of them is none other than the original "Django" himself, Italian actor Franco Nero, who starred in Sergio Corbucci's 1966 Spaghetti Western Django, which served, among other movies, as inspiration for Django Unchained. see the new images >> Posted 05.29.12 by BrentJS
Without the benefit of a trailer, the first peek audiences have had of director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained was with its recently released teaser poster, which merely showed the silhouettes of the characters played by Academy Award–winning actors Jamie Foxx (Ray) and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds). Finally, The Weinstein Company has revealed a first look photo of the two actors in costume, as well as a photo of Leonardo DiCaprio as the movie's villain.
Set two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained follows Foxx as the slave Django, who is freed by German bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Waltz) on the condition that they work together to kill the murderous Brittle Brothers. Thus begins an unlikely partnership as Django works towards freeing his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the slave trade. see the photos >> Posted 04.26.12 by Ryan
The first teaser poster has arrived for writer-director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained and it looks, well, pretty familiar. Just as Tarantino's Spaghetti Western-inspired movie started to take off last year, a fan-made poster of a silhouetted gunman on a horse shooting the chains of a shackled man appeared. The new teaser poster, released by The Weinstein Company, uses a similar red background and chain, and features two silhouetted figures at the bottom, presumably the freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz).
The studio has also released an official synopsis, which offers a detailed description of the movie, to the point of seeming spoilerish. While the movie was known to be about Django and his attempts to rescue his wife from a sadistic slave owner (Leonardo DiCaprio), Tarantino has plenty more in store for audiences, which should come as no surprise after having to split Kill Bill into two movies. read the synopsis and see the full poster >> Posted 04.13.12 by Ryan
