Blade Runner 2049 Trailer


Officer K (Ryan Gosling) is an LAPD law enforcer and a new Blade Runner whose job it is to hunt down and destroy any replicants that find their way to Earth. Replicants are genetically engineered people with short lifespans who have been used solely for work on space colonies for the last few decades. However, when Officer K uncovers a terrifying secret about the replicants that threatens the future of the entire planet, he embarks on a search for a Blade Runner named Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who has been missing for 30 years. It's here we uncover the truth behind Deckard's identity, after the original movie left it cloaked in mystery.

It has just been announced that director Denis Villeneuve will be taking on the remake of 'Dune' more than thirty years after David Lynch launched the long process that was the original - an adaptation of the 1965 sci-fi novel of the same name by Frank Herbert.

Ryan Gosling Ridley Scott Harrison Ford Denis Villeneuve

Director Ridley Scott has said he thinks Ryan Gosling will take the lead role in the new Blade Runner film which will also star Harrison Ford. But the follow up to the 1982 sci-fi cult classic will not have Scott behind the camera, as he’s now handed the reigns over to Denis Villeneuve.

Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling could take the lead in new Blade Runner movie.

Speaking to Den of Geek Scott said, “I think Ryan Gosling is probably going to do it, with Harrison.” When then asked if Gosling would play the central character Scott replied, “Yeah, yeah. I can’t really say more than that, because it’ll give away the story. But Harrison’s definitely in it. In an important way.”

Sicario Further Challenges The Action Woman In Emily Blunt


Emily Blunt Denis Villeneuve

After her fierce performance in Edge of Tomorrow, Emily Blunt wanted to take a break from action movies. But Canadian director Denis Villeneuve wanted her to give it another go in the drug cartel thriller Sicario. She wasn't so sure, having just given birth to a baby. "But he's like a quiet assassin," Blunt says. "He lures you in with this smile and this lovely humour, and suddenly you're in Mexico, speeding down the street!"

While working on the film, Blunt was shocked at "the sheer brutality of the imprint that cartels leave on people's lives". But she liked the way Sicario (the word is Mexican slang for "hitman") never shies away from that. "I think it reveals how cheap life has become for everybody," she says.

'Sicario' Star Emily Blunt Doesn't Think Of Gun-Toting Female Roles As 'Tough'


Emily Blunt Denis Villeneuve

The film industry is quickly becoming awash with badass female characters and Emily Blunt is one of those actors who have mastered the art of the 'tough girl'. But with her new film, cop thriller 'Sicario', she believes that 'tough' isn't necessarily the best way to look at it.

Blunt plays FBI agent Kate Macy, who is on board a mission to beat the drug trafficking over the Mexico-US border. However, the male dominated team around her have methods that she's not so sure she wants to be involved in, but when things start to get out of control, she is forced to question her own morality if she wants to live. While her performance might've impressed her co-stars and the crew on the set, the character was very nearly re-written for a guy over fears for its viewability.

Enemy Trailer Hits - Prisoners Director And Gyllenhaal Combine Again [Trailer]


Jake Gyllenhaal Denis Villeneuve

Jake Gyllenhaal and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve combine once more with Enemy, a psychological thriller that sees the 33-year-old actor come face-to-face with a man who bears his physical aesthetic to the nose hair. Adam (Gyllenhaal) is an unassuming, socially awkward quiet professor, who doesn’t really go out much.

On the recommendation of a colleague, he rents a movie and settles down for a watch, only to discover his doppelganger within the picture. Seeking out his lookalike ( called Anthony) doesn’t bode well for Adam.

Why The Hugh Jackman & Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Prisoners' Is This Year's Must See Thriller


Hugh Jackman Jake Gyllenhaal Denis Villeneuve Paul Dano Terrence Howard

Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal star in Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners, a film that might just be one of the best thrillers, if not one of the all-round best films, of the year. The film hits cinemas up and down the US this weekend (arriving in UK cinemas on 4 October) and whilst it may be lacking in the audience pull power of the latest superhero epic, it has all the substance a gritty thriller needs and promises to be one of the year's most thought-provoking watches.

Jackman stars as Keller Dover, who is put into a position no parent ever want to be in when his six-year-old daughter and her friend go missing at Thanksgiving. When Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) is called in to handle the case, he promises to bring back Keller's daughter, and when the creepy, RV-dwelling outsider Alex Jones (Paul Dano) is found near the scene, he immediately becomes the prime suspect. But with police unable to pin him for the crime he may have committed, he is released following a 48-hour hold, enraging Keller, who decided to take matters into his own hand. It is up to Loki to get to the bottom of the case before it's too late for the missing girls, and before Keller does something he might regret.

Critics Agree That 'Prisoners' Is A Stroke Of Excellence: Review Round-Up


Hugh Jackman Jake Gyllenhaal Paul Dano Denis Villeneuve

Prisoners is by no means your average crime thriller, and maybe that's why critics are swooning over the latest project form Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies); a kidnapping-based movie that promises to leave viewers questioning their own morals as to how far they'd go to protect their child. Starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and the massively under-rated Paul Dano, the film has being widely praise since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this month, with critics tipping their hats to the actors, director and everyone else involved for making one of the most memorable thrillers in years.

The film is set in a rural American town and poses the question, 'how far would you go to protect your child?' When the unthinkable happens to Keller Dover (Jackman) when his 6-year-old daughter and her friend go missing, seemingly leaving no trail and no certain answers as to where they could be. There is one possibility as to where they could be though, and that's the dilapidated RV of neighbourhood creepy guy Alex Jones (Dano), which was seen only moments later in the same vicinity as where the two girls went missing. It's a test against time as Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) must get to the bottom of the crime before Dover gets to Jones and makes him pay for what he may have done.
