    First Look: Woody Harrelson Proves NWA Had A Point In New Clips From 'Rampart'

    Tonight is the world premiere of "Rampart," currently showing without a distributor at the Toronto International Film Festival. Anticipation is high for Oren Moverman's highly-anticipated follow-up to the excellent "The Messenger," and while Woody Harrelson nabbed a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for that role, three new clips courtesy of THR showcase Harrelson as the lead in what we figured was an intriguing ensemble piece. The film is a period piece that showcases the repercussions of the L.A. Riots on an embattled former Vietnam vet struggling with the responsibilities of the badge, and trying to balance his sanity and questionable...

    Is Ben Foster Part Of The Cast For Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus'?

    Regardless of whether that plot synopsis from last night is legit or not (and Fox have denied it), we're more excited for "Prometheus," the sci-fi tale that seems to be set in the same universe as the "Alien" films, and that marks director Ridley Scott's first science fiction movie since "Blade Runner," than we thought we'd be, considering it started off as that most redundant of movie phenomenons, a prequel. Scott and writer Damon Lindelof have been talking a good talk about the originality of the film, and they've assembled quite the cast, with Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Sp...

    First Synopsis For The Film; Ned Beatty Also Part Of The Ensemble CastEven though producer/star Ben Foster has said a 2012 festival unveiling is the likely plan, we're still kinda hoping Oren Moverman's sophomore directorial effort, L.A. cop-drama "Rampart," will sneak onto 2011 calendars somehow.

    Review: ‘Mechanic’ Remake Is Exactly What You’d Expect From A Jason Statham Movie In January

    "The Mechanic" is the prototypical early year action movie -- nothing more and nothing less. Star Jason Statham, who again plays an infallible, lethal bad-ass, seems to have carved his niche as the current go-to guy for B-movie action flicks. The beefy Brit once seemed like a promising heir to the ‘...

    How Ben Foster Was Lured Into 'The Mechanic': Do You Want To Blow Up Stuff With Jason Statham?

    When "The Mechanic" was released in 1972, starring Charles Bronson as a professional hitman named Arthur Bishop and Jan-Michael Vincent as his protégé, Steve McKenna, the world of professional killers hadn’t yet become a staple of American cinema. In the almost four decades since, that is far from t...

He's going to be starring in the upcoming Jason Statham thing "The Mechanic" and he recently signed on to the pretty average-sounding thriller "Contraband" with Mark Wahlberg -- we were beginning to wonder if the Foster we knew from "The Messenge...
