While some actors seem to rely on being shirtless (yes, I’m talking to you Ryan Reynolds, and you True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten) others utilize it a little more sparingly. Popscorn favorite Jake Gyllenhaal definitely falls into the latter category thus far, but Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time could be a game changer. While the film’s actual quality remains to be judged – and it will be judged – stills from the filming give hope for some shirtless gems to be found in the desert. Until then, here are a couple of movies that will take you back in time to see Jake all over again.
Tarsem Singh is one of my favorite directors, and a guy that seems woefully under-appreciated in Hollywood. His last film, The Fall, is just breathtaking. Despite that film’s harried trip to the big screen and small viewership, it apparently got him enough juice to head his first project that one would consider “big budget,” Immortals (aka War of the Gods).
I guess I can no longer call myself a die-hard Alien fan, since when news broke that Ridley Scott would helm a prequel to the series surrounding the “Space Jockey,” I drew a total blank. Perhaps I saw the first film just too long ago, or simply forgot about the early events of the film. After all, everything that follows the first 15 minutes is the real interesting part.
Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds, looks to be one of the more anticipated films of the fall. Lionsgate gobbled it up shortly after the film’s premiere at Sundance, and seemingly for good reason. The trailer, which we’ve included here as well (since we were remiss in featuring it earlier), is quiet and creepy in the most uncomfortable of ways. Today, thanks to our friends at FirstShowing.net, we have the first teaser poster for the film, and damn is it well-done.
Perhaps in Iron Man 2, that is. Good ole Onion News Network is on their toes and picked up a rather unassuming rumor from Ain’t It Cool News that Gwyneth Paltrow gets socked in her upcoming film. AICN took the original article down for fear that it glorified violence (really!?). But ONN picked up the topic and ran with it. Good for them.
With the summer movie season fast approaching, Tim and I racked our brains about which upcoming releases might blow up our skirt and which probably just blow. Here are 10 films that fall into each category, which are slated for release between May and August.
Well, not specifically the Green Lantern, himself, but rather superhero Abin Sur a popular figure in the Green Lantern mythology. As most are familiar, the feature film is underway and stars Ryan Reynolds as the lead. Not much about the film has surfaced to date, but some wily character in Madisonville, LA, where filming is underway, snapped the photo and emailed it to ComicBookMovie.com. We’d obviously like to see Reynolds in the signature tights (fan-made art may not be that far off), but I suppose a shiny spaceship will have to do for now.
