The Accountant Trailer


Ben Affleck is cast as Christian Wolff in this new action thriller film The Accountant. An extraordinary man with highly advanced cognitive skills that allow him to think on a different level to that of a standard human, more in line with the likes of Picasso and Einstein. He works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organisations from the cover of a CPA office in a small town. He has two sides to his job one being an accountant and the other being a sleeping assassin, a job that when required to do so will see him perform extraordinary measures.

Jane Got A Gun Trailer


Jane Hammond has always been an independent woman, but living in the developing West is precarious even for her. After a treacherous few years and constant aggravation from a nasty gang called The Bishop Boys, Jane marries a man by the name of Bill 'Ham' Hammond and things settle down.

However, when Hamm returns home badly injured after running into The Bishop Boys, Jane decides there's no other option but to face her past and take on the Colin McCann and the rest of the infamous gang. Jane contacts the only person she knows who she thinks will be able to help her, her ex-fiance and gunslinger Dan Frost. Recruiting Frost and returning to the family home, the three await the arrival of the gang. One way or another score will be settled.

Jane Got A Gun will be released in the UK from Spring 2016.

Cowgirl-in-training Natalie Portman


Natalie Portman Fred Zinnemann John Ford Ewan McGregor Jude Law Gavin O'Connor

Natalie Portman has been watching Westerns as research for 'Jane Got a Gun'.

The 32-year-old actress - who stars as lead Jane Hammond - is excited that the new American movie will star a female protagonist and has been immersing herself in old Westerns to make sure she gets a feel for cowboy culture.

She explained: ''I love Westerns and you don't often get one with a great female protagonist, so this is very exciting. Plus I had a great excuse to watch a lot of old Westerns as research.''

Gavin O'Connor Natalie Portman Lynne Ramsay

Warrior filmmaker Gavin O'Connor has reportedly signed on to direct Natalie Portman's new western Jane Got A Gun after Lynne Ramsay abruptly dropped out of the project on the first day of production.

The cast and crew of the film were shocked on Monday (18Mar13) when Ramsay failed to show up to the shoot in Santa Fe, New Mexico, leaving producers scrambling to find a last-minute replacement.

Now O'Connor has been called in to rescue the movie, about a woman forced to defend her farm when her outlaw husband is injured in a shoot-out. Filming is due to recommence on Thursday (21Mar13), according to Deadline.com.

Warrior Review


Very Good
This film may be a real crowd-pleaser, but it's also a shameless string of movie cliches from start to finish. Thankfully, the excellent cast keeps it afloat, holding our interest and getting us to cheer even though we don't really care how it ends.

After running away from home with his mother some 15 years earlier, ex-soldier Tommy (Hardy) drops in on his drunken dad Paddy (Nolte). Tommy isn't impressed that Pop has found God and remained sober for three years, but he agrees to let Pop coach him again as a mixed martial arts fighter. Meanwhile, Tommy's brother Brendan (Edgerton) is estranged from both his brother and his dad. A family man teaching physics at a Philadelphia high school, he's in trouble with the bank over a dodgy mortgage, so returns to his Ultimate Fighter roots.

Eden Review


Very Good
Few things are tougher to watch, in real life or in the movies, than someone's heart slowly breaking. Such is the case with Eden, in which Billy and Breda Farrell's marriage lies in a state of quiet and deepening crisis. As the couple's tenth wedding anniversary approaches, Breda (Eileen Walsh) finds herself increasingly alienated from Billy (Aidan Kelly), and Eden sets out charting the trajectory of her despair. It's as if producer David Collins, of 2006's Irish sleeper hit Once, director Declan Recks, and screenwriter Eugene O'Brien (adapting his own play) were channeling Mike Leigh or John Cassavetes in bringing their marital drama to the screen.

Billy works as a repairman for the local phone company, and when he isn't shunting around town in his van, he's downing pints at the local pub, often alone, sometimes in the company of one of his drinking buddies, all single or divorced. Billy says cordial things to his wife, a word of flattery about her cooking or her new hairdo, but it's dawning on him, through the veil of his own denial, that he's a deeply unhappy man. Breda's in denial too, afraid to confront Billy about the widening rift between them, and the consequences of letting dark truths out in the open. Over bottles of wine, she confides her disappointments and loneliness to her best friend, Eilish (Lesley Conroy), and entertains fantasies, sexual and otherwise, that offer her escape.

Pride And Glory Review


Excellent
Police thrillers these days aspire to replicate the CSI formula on the big screen. Not Pride and Glory. It wants to be this generation's Serpico.

Director Gavin O'Connor certainly understands the difference between the two. Though Glory lays out a complex yet solvable mystery, it's far more interested in loyalty and the familial bonds that exist among lifetime police officers. It also wears its adoration for the badge -- and those who wear it -- on its sleeve.
