Cowboys and Aliens – Sam Rockwell saddles up

Posted by LiveFor on May 4, 2010

Sam Rockwell working with Jon Favreau again in the adaptation of the comic book, Cowboys and Aliens

It starts shooting in June and Rockwell, who can currently be seen in Iron Man 2 as Justin Hammer, will be joining Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford.

Rockwell will play a bar owner named Doc who joins in the pursuit of the aliens. Once Favreau and the writers — Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof — learned that Rockwell was interested in the movie, they reconceived and expanded the role, which initially called for a heavy-set man.

Rockwell’s previous experience with Westerns was in 2007’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

I’m made up Rockwell will be in this sci-fi Western as I think he is a brilliant actor. From Lawn Dogs, Galaxy Quest through Charlie’s Angels Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Moon and more he is always great to watch.

Jonah Hex – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2010

This trailer has its moments but seems to be a bit all over the place. Hex is a great character yet I’m not sure whether the film will do him justice. I could be wrong although I do get a whiff of Wild, Wild West about it. We shall have to wait and see.

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.

Jonah Hex – A clear look at Josh Brolin’s scarred face

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

It has been an age since we saw anything of the Jonah Hex movie. Adapted from the comic book character this is the first proper look of Josh Brolin as the bounty hunter. I must say he looks a lot like the comic version which is very cool. No sign of Megan Fox though.

We will finally get a trailer for Jonah Hex that will premiere on the SyFy channel the night of April 29th. Then it will be attached to A Nightmare on Elm Street screenings.

What do you think of Brolin’s look?

Blu-Ray News – Tombstone and Darkman going blu

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2010

Tombstone

“I’ll be your Huckleberry” – The classic line from Val Kilmer’s Doc Holliday. Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp. Stephen Lang as a cowardly Ike Clanton, Michael Biehn as Johnny Ringo and Powers Booth as Curly Bill and so much more plus Billy Zane. That’s all you need to know. Finally it gets on Blu-Ray and I can’t wait to watch it again.

Due out in April.
Tombstone [Blu-ray] – Amazon.com

Darkman

The cult classic directed by Sam Raimi and starring Liam Neeson and the bloke who played the janitor from LA Law.

The film stars Liam Neeson as Peyton Westlake, a scientist who is attacked and left for dead by a ruthless mobster, Durant (played by Larry Drake) after his girlfriend, an attorney (played by Frances McDormand) runs afoul of a corrupt developer (played by Colin Friels). Westlake survives, but is left with burns over most of his body. While hospitalized as a comatose John Doe, he is unwittingly subjected to a radical treatment that destroys the nerve endings connected to his skin, neutralizing his ability to sense physical pain but increasing his brain’s emotional output to compensate. Now half-crazed, Westlake escapes the hospital and decides to get revenge on the criminals who took his life away, but now as a masked vigilante, known as Darkman.

Due out on 15 June.
Darkman [Blu-ray] – Amazon.com
