Michael Caine Orchestrates London Jewelry Heist In “King of Thieves’ Trailer

Michael Caine, still an acting workhorse at 85, headlines King of Thieves, the true story of a group of retired crooks who pulled off a jewelry raid at London’s diamond district. Caine plays Brian Reader, the mastermind behind the operation, with Ray Winstone, Charlie Cox (Daredevil) and Jim Broadbent rounding out the ensemble. James Marsh, best known for his work in The Theory of Everything, directed the project.

Though the obvious situation was a serious one, the trailer suggests that King of Thieves will have its ample share of laughs, and much of the humor comes from Caine’s obvious displeasure over his colleague’s lack of discretion.

King of Thieves hits theaters, On Demand, and Digital HD on January 25. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Saoirse Ronan Cites ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ As A “Massive Part” Of Acting Career

Three time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan is the titular character in Mary Queen of Scots, a look at Mary’s stab at securing an alliance with cousin and rival queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). The project is the feature filmmaking debut of revered theatre director Josie Rourke.

“I knew a little bit about Mary separately,” said Ronan. “When I was a child we had been taught a little bit about Tudor history and obviously Elizabeth is a massive part of that. I knew a little bit growing up but I actually signed on to the job when I was 18. So for the last five years I’ve sort of grown up learning more and more about Mary in particular and Elizabeth and the English Court as well. I’ve sort of grown with that story over the last five years. It’s been a massive part of my life.”

In the clip below, Ronan discusses why the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth continues to transcend time and weather:

Steve Carell’s Movie Youth Impacted By ‘Welcome to Marwen’ Director Robert Zemeckis

Director Robert Zemeckis’ career has included a healthy share of excellent films (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump, Flight), and now he’s back with Welcome to Marwen. The project, penned by Zemeckis and Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands), centers on the true story of Mark Hogancamp’s (Steve Carell) intriguing manner of dealing with a nearly soul crushing attack.

Creating a town via miniatures, Hogancamp builds an art installation where he can be the hero of his own story. Hogancamp was the subject of the 2010 documentary Marwencol.

In the clip below, Carell talks about how Zemeckis, whom he describes as a “legend,” impacted him as a moviegoer.

Welcome to Marwen, co-starring Diane Kruger and Carell’s The 40-Year-Old Virgin co-star Leslie Mann, opens nationwide December 21.
