The old proverb 'there's no honour among thieves' rings a little too close to home in the plot for Precious Cargo. Karen, and Jack are two of the best thieves in the business but when Karen crosses Eddie, a gangster with a vicious side, he begins hunting Karen down.
Once Eddie captures Karen she is forced to involve her ex-partner Jack and he must carry out a dangerous yet profitable heist in order to pay Eddie back and save Karen's life. As allegiances are broken, everyone is out for themselves in this action packed thriller.
Precious Cargo is written and directed by Max Adams who previously wrote Extraction and Heist.

Claire Forlani and Dougray Scott - A variety of stars were photographed at the EE British Academy of Film and Television Awards 2015 Official After Party which was held at the Grosvenor House hotel in London, United Kingdom - Sunday 8th February 2015
After his wife dies, rising-star chef Rob (Scott) lets his career slide. His celebrity friend Gordon Ramsay urges him to get back in the game, as does his preteen daughter (Gibbs). So he buys the country pub his wife had her eye on and sets out to turn it into a home for honest British cuisine, including his signature trifle. The disgruntled village is also home to snooty-sexy American food critic Kate (Forlani), whose wannabe suitor, swishy landowner James (Hepworth), sets out to sabotage the pub. And then drunken TV critic Guy (Callow) pays a visit.

Romantic movie THE LAKE HOUSE has given Keanu Reeves the impetus to get down on a bended knee and propose to his girlfriend Claire Forlani, according to new US reports. After discovering how much newlywed pal and co-star Sandra Bullock loves married life to TV mechanic Jesse James, Reeves started talking candidly about his own marriage plans - and he means business. According to US tabloid the National Enquirer, Reeves has proposed to Meet Joe Black beauty Forlani after quietly dating the actress for three years. A source says, "Keanu didn't work up the nerve to propose until last week (ends16JUN06)." The actor reportedly flashed his famous smile and asked Forlani to marry him over dinner at celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's new Hollywood restaurant Cut. And insiders claim the wedding venue, tentatively planned for late next year (07), will be the mansion the actor is renovating in the Hollywood Hills - just down the street from the estate Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston called home when they were married.
The smart script for Boys and Girls, written by the humbly-credited "Drews", succeeds in part because Ryan and Jennifer nurture their unique friendship for nearly all of the film. While the inevitable Hollywood ending may be in viewers' minds from the get-go, The Drews and director Robert Iscove keep us guessing if this pair might ever connect with each other, and the sweet performances by Prinze and Forlani keep us interested.. The couple's interplay, and the machinations of their separate, frustrating lovelives, are satisfying enough that a sunshiny ending is not required.

That something is a base level of information about Jean Michel Basquiat, a Haitian artisté in the early '80s who became Andy Warhol's favorite son. (What is it with Warhol movies this year?) Basquiat rose from living in a cardboard box and decorating the streets of New York with cryptic graffiti to a high-profile yet short-lived career in the highest of art circles. All before his not-too-untimely death at the age of 27 from a (take a guess) heroin overdose.

Just about the time the fur was really flying between Microsoft and the Justice Department in 1999, screenwriter Howard Franklin ("The Man Who Knew Too Little") seized the day and scurried over to MGM with the kind of pitch that integrity-free studio execs love to hear: 25 words or less and based on an earlier, successful movie.
It must have gone something like this: What if we ripped off "The Firm," except instead of having a company full of evil lawyers trying to corrupt the hero, we'll feature a monopolizing Microsoft clone? We could get a low-rent, pretty boy matinee idol to play the college grad geek (he'll have no credibility, but what the hell? he'll bring in the teenage girls!) and he'll stumble on to a giant technology conspiracy masterminded by a very thinly veiled Bill Gates surrogate!
And thus was born "Antitrust," a transparent thriller from the recycle bin, transcribed into a laptop computer and retrofitted with an MP3 soundtrack, MTV editing and a cast of beautiful people where the nerds should be.

When Jackie Chan was in his low-budget, Hong Kong action-comedy prime, it was easy to forgive his better movies for simplistic plots and mediocre (sometimes downright bad) acting because enjoying them came down to two things: Chan's comedic charm and the dangerous, awe-inspiring, ingeniously choreographed fights and stunts that he always performed himself.
When Chan started making $60- to $100- million Hollywood films, it was reasonable to begin expecting more, but the star just hasn't lived up to those higher expectations except when sharing the load with ad-libbing, scene-stealing Owen Wilson in the buddy pictures "Shanghai Noon" and "Shanghai Knights."
But "The Medallion," which is a Hong Kong production made with Hollywood money, feels like the return of good ol' cheesy, charismatic, pardonably haphazard Jackie Chan -- even if the daredevil actor has finally begun accepting the inevitable ravages of age and injury.
