Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer


Agent 47 is a genetically engineered person trained from childhood to be among the greatest assassins on the planet. Nameless, parentless and with virtually nothing to lose, he poses the perfect person to eliminate whoever needs to be eliminated. He's almost impossible to defeat, with agility and co-ordination most acute, a powerful sense of logic and being fiercely strong; this is a man that no ordinary person can kill or - indeed - capture. His unique abilities become a target for a massive corporation hellbent on forming the most powerful army in the world, by unlocking the genetic code of Agent 47 - and the other Agents if they can find them. When they discover a woman with little knowledge of her past and ignorant of her superhuman powers, they think they've hit the jackpot. But Agent 47 has jumped into action to protect his kind, and help her unveil her genetic secrets.

Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer


Agent 47 is no normal human being. Having been born into The Agent Program with a barcode tattooed on the back of his head, he was trained up to be among the greatest hitmen in the world. With astonishing strength, infinite intelligence and the superhuman agility, he is impossible to kill - and ever harder to detain, with his incredible ability to tactically undo any situation in which he finds himself trapped (though that's not a word in this guy's vocabulary). Predictably, he is much desirable as a soldier and there's one organisation that will to everything within their power to understand the genetic engineering of Agent 47 in a bid to form an army to rival all others. Along the way he meets another agent with the same abilities, though she has no idea where she comes from and is desperate to uncover the secrets of her past.

Frozen Review


Excellent

Disney learns a lesson from Pixar's Brave, giving these orphaned princesses some feisty purpose that doesn't depend on a man. Everything else about this movie is fairly formulaic, including the requisite goofy sidekick character. But the frosty animation adds a stately, dramatic tone that's picked up by Broadway-style songs and just a hint of moral complexity in the story, which is based on Hans Christian Andersen's story The Snow Queen.

With her ability to freeze anything at a touch, young Queen Elsa (voiced by Menzel) has spent her life hidden away in the castle. No one can know her secret, including her restless little sister Anna (Bell), who meets her dream man in Hans (Fontana) on the day of Elsa's coronation. But Elsa's startled reaction to this news triggers an ice age in the kingdom, which sends Elsa fleeing to hide in the mountains. So Anna decides to track her down. She enlists help from local delivery boy Kristoff (Groff) and his pet reindeer, and as they head into the hills they encounter one of Elsa's newest creations: a singing, dancing, scatterbrained snowman named Olaf (Gad).

The winter wonderland setting gives the animators a lot to work with, and the imagery is spectacular. We actually shiver at the gleaming ice and snowy landscapes, which are so detailed that they make us want to see the film again. The characters are also sharply rendered, although they're designed without much subtlety, including the usual Disney physicality in the girls' big-eyed Barbie-like figures. But the plot keeps us off balance by, for example, giving Anna two eligible men to choose between. And also by making Elsa so internally conflicted about her unwanted powers.

Cory Monteith David Morse Mike Vogel Zoe Bell Glee Rachel Nichols Ciaran Hinds

Cory Monteith's final film McCanick is due to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th. In one of his final roles, Monteith plays Simon Weeks a drug addict and recently released prisoner. According to reports by MTV, Weeks is suspected of a murder he committed whilst in his teens, he is tracked down by two detectives: Eugene 'Mack' McCanick (David Morse) and Floyd Intrator (Mike Vogel).

The trailer suggests Monteith's character is likely innocent of the suspected crime. One character warns the irritable McCanick "he's done bad things but he is not a killer", whilst the detective retorts "you don't know him as well as you think." This could be a red herring in itself, but we shall have to wait and see!

Why Cory Monteith's Final Role as 'Lost Soul' Was His Very Best


Cory Monteith Glee David Morse Ciaran Hinds

Cory Monteith's final role before his untimely death was as a "lost soul on the streets of Philadelphia," in Josh Waller's drama McCanick. The Glee star - who was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room over the weekend - convinced the filmmaker to give him a chance at the gritty role.


Simon Weeks. by @wallerjoshc

"He said he wanted the role so badly because he had a very jaded past and he'd never been able to tap into that as an actor and kind of purge his system," the McCanick director told Entertainment Tonight Canada this week, adding, "the character Simon Weeks was the perfect vessel for him to get it all out."
