    There aren't many actors we'd say this about, but we'd pretty much pay to watch Idris Elba read anything. The phone book. The most embarrassing entries from our teenage diaries. Dialogue from "Pacific Rim." Anything. Since breaking through with "The Wire" a decade ago, Elba's gone from strength to s...

Both filmmakers ran cameras simultaneously in certain shots, Taylor held on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades as he filmed the action, and the two of them generally disregarded their personal safety as they shot some fairly epic action sequences. When asked whether they’ve ever been hurt, Neveldine knocked on...
