    Interview: Writer & Director Steven Knight On 'Locke,' Tom Hardy & Future Projects Including 'Eastern Promises 2'

    One of the chief pleasures of the Göteborg International Film Festival, aside from the charming Swedishness of it all (particularly fond of the helper whose novel take on the “switch off your f*cking phone” message was to implore us not to forget to turn our phones “back on, the second you leave”), ...

    Venice Review: Steven Knight’s ‘Locke’ Starring Tom Hardy

    Of all the genres, the single location film is perhaps one of the hardest to get right. For one, you need a hell of an actor (or actors) to hold the attention for even the briefest of running times. You also need a story that coherently keeps the actors in place, with enough of a hook to keep you in...

    Review: 'Closed Circuit' Starring Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall

    Focus Features is starting to build their own exclusive tentpole weekend each year. Marvel usually claims the opening May slot of every summer, and different studios trade off the lucrative July 4th period. But Focus has rubber-stamped the under-attended Labor Day weekend as theirs, with middlebrow ...

    Review: 'Redemption' Starring Jason Statham

    In recent years Jason Statham, with his stocky frame, bald head and gravelly voice that makes him sound like he’s always gnawing on broken glass, has become a kind of one-man wrecking crew, and not just because of his appearance in the “Crank,” “Transporter” and “Expendables” franchises. A rough, se...

    Here's a fun fact that you might not realize -- there's a new Jason Statham movie coming to theaters and VOD next week. You might not know that because there doesn't seem to be any marketing campaign at all behind it. Anyway, once titled "Hummingbird" it has been given the far blander name "Redempti...

    Watch: Jason Statham Shows His Acting Chops In Trailer For Steven Knight's 'Hummingbird'

    Jason Statham's known for pretty much one thing: cracking heads. From "The Transporter" to his most recent film "Parker," if you see his big bald mug on the poster, you can be pretty sure that the film's going to involve the actor kicking seven shades of shit out of anyone and everyone that crosses ...

    Tom Hardy To Star In Steven Knight's Shot-In-Real-Time Thriller 'Locke,' Produced By 'Anna Karenina' Director Joe Wright

    It feels like it's been quite a long time since we saw Tom Hardy on screen. But in fact, he's been working consistently, with five films in the last eighteen months, and the actor's such a chameleon that it's hard to draw a line between Ricky Tarr in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and Bane in "The Dark...

    Patrick Wilson Will 'Stretch' In Action Flick For Joe Carnahan; 'Eastern Promises' Scribe Steven Knight Penning Wild Chef Flick

    It's AFM time, which means lots of projects are being announced, but whether or not they actually get made anytime soon continues to be up in the air. In fact, there is such a glut of films being tossed around the sales floor, only the barest scraps of info about some of them are making it out.
