    'Safe' Producer Lawrence Bender Talks Jason Statham's Appeal & Why He Didn't Produce 'Django Unchained'

    Lawrence Bender is mostly known (by film fanatics anyway) as Quentin Tarantino’s producer. Starting with “Reservoir Dogs,” Bender has faithfully produced just about everything Tarantino has been involved with (minus “Grindhouse”). And, while he has produced other projects outside the sphere of Taran...

    Jason Statham Talks About Being Part Of A Legacy of Bad-Asses, 'Safe' & The Remake Of 'Heat' With Brian De Palma

    Jason Statham has joked that the reason he gets hired is because he's cheap and he does all of his own stunts. But this is devaluing his many strengths as an actor – he's an amazing physical performer and has a fair amount of screen presence with a kind of old school macho charm that isn't seen on t...

    Review: Twisty, Action-Packed NYC Noir 'Safe' Is The Finest Jason Statham Actioner Yet

    The de-evolution of the modern b-action movie is disheartening. The genre has been bisected by traditionalists and new-school practitioners. The old-school, red meat types like Sylvester Stallone and their ilk believe that real men doing real stunts and delivering brutal blows is the way to go, big ...

    Even Jason Statham Has His Limits, Turns Down 'Fast Six'

    Way back last fall, right around the time there was rumors that Paramount wanted him for their inevitable "Transformers" sequel(s), it was revealed that Jason Statham was the latest piece of man meat being sought to join the sweaty, armpit-stained cast of "Fast Six." But for fans...

    Jason Statham & Jennifer Lopez's 'Parker' Bumped To January 25, 2013

    You know, this was going to be a snarkier post but then we dug up this set photo of Jason Statham wearing a goddamn cowboy hat, and "Parker" is now our most anticipated movie of 2013. Jason Statham has done a lot things in his career -- most of them variations on the same theme -- but we h...

    Theft Of Nicolas Cage's Action Comics #1 Will Now Be Turned Into A Movie That Doesn't Star Nicolas Cage

    "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," "Season of the Witch," "Drive Angry," "Seeking Justice," "Trespass," "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." Is that it? Is Nicolas Cage finally done paying that tax bill? Can he go back to making interesti...

    Brian DePalma, Jason Statham And William Goldman Team Up To Remake Burt Reynolds Vehicle 'Heat'

    There's something curiously old-fashioned about Jason Statham as a movie star. He rarely, if ever, toplines tentpoles or mega-hits, plenty of his films tank badly, and he basically plays the same role every time. But he knocks out two, three, even four movies a year, bringing in a steady, reliab...

    Watch: Beverly Hills Retirement Home Holds Paintball Contest In Teaser Trailer For 'The Expendables 2'

    Listen. Carefully. On the wind. Can you hear something? A creak of bone. A distant cough. Someone complaining that they haven't taken their pills, asking if you remembered to record "NCIS," and saying how their grandkids are going to show them how to use the Google. That's right, S...

    SIMON SAYS: Géla Babluani’s 13 is pure bone-headed bliss

    Géla Babluani’s 13, a remake of his own 13 Tzameti, is arty, self-serious macho bullshit, and it’s also a lot of fun. The director still takes his original premise too seriously, but it’s a problem that only really becomes apparent during 13’s last 20 minutes, so until then, you easily get lost watc...
