Trailer: Kevin Costner Gets ‘Criminal’ With Ryan Reynolds

costner11

Kevin Costner proved in 3 Days To Kill that he can still pull of an action film, and the trailer to his upcoming thriller Criminal offers up a thrilling twist to the genre.

The story centers on a violent convict (Costner) who is implanted with the memories of a dead CIA operative (Ryan Reynolds). Movies like 3000 Miles to Graceland and Mr.Brooks prove that Costner is also adept at playing bad guys with a razor sharp edge, and it should be entertaining to watch him juggle two personalities this time around.

Criminal is directed by Ariel Vroman, who helmed the overlooked 2012 feature The Iceman, and the feature also boasts an A-list supporting cast (Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Alice Eve, Gal
Gadot).

Are you excited for another Kevin Costner action flick or are you skipping this flick altogether? Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!!


Criminal opens in theaters April 15.

Ethan Hawke Sings On Rhino’s ‘Born To Be Blue’ Soundtrack

borntobeblue2

Ethan Hawke does a great job with channel jazz musician Chet Baker in the upcoming film Born To Be Blue, and in celebration of the trumpeter’s music Rhino is releasing the soundtrack on March 18. Grammy winning writer Rob Bowman penned the 14-track collection’s liner notes.

The music on the soundtrack will feature standards popularized by Baker but recorded by a jazz combo assembled by pianist/composer David Braid. “We decided early on not to use any master recordings from Chet Baker because we wanted Ethan to do all his own singing,” said Born To Be Blue director Robert Budreau. “And we needed to tailor the arrangements for the narrative since the film re-imagines Chet’s life in the late 60s when he was mounting a musical comeback.”

Hawke performs the standards “My Funny Valentine” and “I’ve Never Been In Love Before” with The David Braid Quartet. The Charlie Mingus tune “Haitian Fight Song” and Odetta’s “Go Down Sunshine” are also featured in the soundtrack.

Born To Be Blue, co-starring Carmen Ejogo and Callum Keith Rennie, hits theaters March 25 and will be available on VOD March 31.

Week seven of the movie podcast CinemAddicts is here, as Anderson Cowan and I review the nail biting and atmospheric horror film The Witch. The project, which marks the feature directing debut of promising filmmaker Robert Eggers, centers on a family whose banished by their community and force to survive in a remote forest. Set in New England circa 1630, the project gained momentum at the Sundance Film Festival where Eggers was honored with the Directing Award (U.S. Dramatic).

The Other Side of the Door centers on Maria (Sarah Wayne Callies), a grief stricken woman who is still haunted by her son’s tragic death. When Maria travels to ancient temple which reportedly holds a supernatural connection between life and death, she makes contact with her son and ultimately brings a new level of tragedy to her family. Jeremy Sisto co-stars in the feature as her husband, a man who’s desperately trying to help Maria through her crisis.

“When I heard they were offering me a horror movie, I was expecting to be running around away from goblins or whatever,” said Sisto, who starred last year in the comedy Break Point and the TV series Wicked City. “The fact that this movie has a very dramatic foundation about parents losing their child and (with) the entry point of the story being such an emotionally catastrophic event was intriguing to me.”

Click on the media bar and listen to Jeremy Sisto talk about his experience with bats during his travels to India (part of the production was shot at Rudyard Kipling’s home (producer Alexandre Aja is also heard in the clip).

Jason Ralph & Stella Maeve Forge New Path With ‘The Magicians’

NUP_170408_0840.JPG

Airing Monday evenings on SyFy, The Magicians centers on Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), a grad student who joins Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy to cultivate his magic skills. Co-starring Stella Maeve, Arjun Gupta, and Olivia Taylor Dudley, The Magicians is based on Lev Grossman’s bestselling fantasy trilogy.

For Ralph, The Magicians offers more than just the visceral thrill of seeing something out of the ordinary. “The show and the books are sort of a second coming of age story,” says Ralph. “It’s about this post grad voice that a lot of people find themselves in where the world expects you to have your s**t together – and you don’t. I think that’s something this generation particularly is experiencing right now. There’s not a set place for people to enter the job market or anything really. So there’s a lot of people trying to forge their own way through the world and I think this series explores that.”

In the following video below, Stella Maeve talks about the joys of acting in The Magicians:
