Josh Brolin Confirmed To Play Cable In 'Deadpool 2'


Josh Brolin

Deadpool is without a doubt one of the most popular superheroes of the modern day. Lighting up the big screen in 2016 with his first solo movie - where Ryan Reynolds took up the role of the mischievous anti-hero - he's garnered more fans than ever before, and will return to movie theatres next year in a second solo outing.

For months there's been speculation as to who would step into that role, but now it's been confirmed that Josh Brolin has snagged the role.

Corvus Glaive Confirmed As Second Villain In 'Avengers: Infinity War'


Josh Brolin

Rumours have been floating around for some time as to what exactly will go on in upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Though we know the titular crime-fighting team will be taking on Thanos (Josh Brolin) with the help of the Guardians of the Galaxy, what we don't know is whether or not he would be the only villain causing chaos in the movie. That is, until now.

Whilst Thanos is trying to bring together the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet that would give him the ultimate power over reality, space and time, we now know that he'll be helped by none other than second-in-command, the dangerous warrior Corvus Glaive.

Hail, Caesar! Review

Excellent

An intelligent ode to a time when Hollywood made wildly inventive movies without pressure from focus groups, there's a serious edge to what superficially looks like a madcap comical romp. But this isn't one of Joel and Ethan Coen's nutty comedies. It's a pointed exploration of the collision between art and commerce, assembled as a sprawlingly entertaining ensemble movie packed with lively, often hilarious characters.

It's set over 24 hours at Capitol Pictures in 1951 as studio minder Eddie (Josh Brolin) tries to keep several movies in production despite a series of hitches, while twin gossip columnists (two Tilda Swintons) try to get a scoop. Top movie star Baird (George Clooney) has been kidnapped by communist writers from the set of his Roman epic. Water-ballet diva DeeAnna (Scarlett Johansson) is pregnant and unapologetically unmarried. And rising-star Hobie (Alden Ehrenreich) is struggling to make the transition from Western action hero to chamber room drama, clashing with his demanding new director Laurence (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, song-and-dance man Burt (Channing Tatum) is up to something on the set of his sailor musical. With all of this, Eddie begins to think that maybe he should take the offer of a job outside the film industry.

As the movie darts between these various productions, the Coens gleefully reinvent this series of genres that have essentially died out. Yes, the film is a pointed depiction of how Hollywood used to make a wide array of movies for much broader audiences. Each sequence is written and directed with witty details that perfectly catch the way the chaos of a film set can be transformed into a glamorous motion picture in time for the starry red-carpet premiere. And the entire cast rises to the challenge. Clooney is terrific as the dim-witted star who hasn't a clue what's happening around him. Ehrenreich shows real charm as a smart kid struggling in an insane situation. Brolin holds things together in a surprisingly sympathetic role, while Swinton, Johansson and Fiennes add plenty of spark, and the film is stolen by Frances McDormand as a spiky film editor.

Hail, Caesar! Trailer


Ever since his wonderful appearance in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, we've been waiting for Ralph Fiennes to take up a similar role that shows a completely different side to the actor, now it looks like the Coen Brothers have given the actor such a role. Laurence Lorenz is an eccentric film director who finds himself caught up in a fiasco when Hollywood superstar Baird Whitlock is kidnapped.

Joaquin Phoenix Plays A Crooked Cop In The Trailer For Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice"


Joaquin Phoenix Paul Thomas Anderson Reese Witherspoon Josh Brolin

Joaquin Phoenix and Paul Thomas Anderson are back with another team effort. The trailer for Inherent Vice dropped on Monday and, going on that alone, we’ll call this a must-see. It’s an adaptation of Thomas Pichon’s novel of the same name and follows stoner P.I. Larry “Doc” Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend’s (Katherine Waterston) wealthy boyfriend. Besides Phoenix himself, the film stars Josh Brolin as the stuffy LAPD detective Christian “Bigfoot” Bjornson, while Reese Witherspoon plays deputy DA Penny Kimball. Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Joanna Newsom, and Benicio Del Toro round out an all-star cast.

Watch the full trailer here:

"Sin City" Stars Talk A Big Game Of Female Empowerment, But Will The Movie Deliver?


Jessica Alba Eva Green Rosario Dawson Joseph Gordon-Levitt Josh Brolin Bruce Willis

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For isn’t out until this coming Thursday, August 21, but promotion has been going on for months. Maybe you’ve noticed that this time around, it’s mostly (if not all) focused on the ladies – from Jessica Alba’s no-longer damsel-in-distress Nancy, to Rosario Dawson’s dominatrix with a deadly attitude Gail, to the Dame herself – Eva Green as Ava Lord. These are no-nonsense, cliché-free female characters. Well, technically they’re all cliché, but that’s the point – it’s all very post-modern and ironic and noir-inspired, etc.

Jessica Alba
Yes, ok, the women are still strutting around in their underwear. But this time they are empowered, apparently.

Marvel's "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" Trailer Debuted At SDCC And Looked Awesome, Probably.


Robert Downey Jr Joss Whedon James Spader Scarlett Johansson Josh Brolin

Marvel kicked off promotion for Avengers: Age of Ultron early at SDCC and, as with everything else related to the franchise, they made a massive production of it. The usual suspects were there – all of the primary cast, except for Scarlett Johansson, who is close to giving birth. Director/nerd king Joss Whedon also skipped the convention, since he couldn’t fly out from London after his knee surgery.

Robert Downey Jr.
The stars of The Avengers are basically Comic-Con royalty at this point.

The panel included a short Q&A, Robert Downey Jr. throwing roses to the audience and Josh Brolin walking in as Thanos, as well as heaps of Guardians news, but the main event had to have been the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer – the first of several, if the studio follows its usual model.

The Goonies 2: Can The Original Cast Reunite For Another Adventure?


Sean Astin Josh Brolin

Its been a long, nearly thirty year wait for fans of 1985’s The Goonies, but now it seems a sequel is in the works with director Richard Donner, and what’s more, he wants to reunited the original cast. Donner made the announcement in a rather unspectacular fashion whilst he was filmed by gossip site TMZ signing autographs. Donner was asked if he ever planned to do another comic book movie and he replied, "if you call Goonies a comic book. We’re doing a sequel.” Then, when asked if any of the stars from the 1985 movie were going to return he said "hopefully all of them".

Richard Donner
Goonies director Richard Donner confirmed a sequel to TMZ

Rumors of a Goonies sequel have been floating around for the best part of a decade. Back in 2004 the rumors started but it then seemed Warner Brothers studio just wasn’t interested in giving The Goonies another outing. Next the rumors resurfaced in 2009, but this time things seemed a lot more likely, with talk of Richard Donner being on board. Once again though nothing happened and Goonies fans became used to constant talk of sequels and remakes, with original cast members divided on whether or not the gang would ever hit the big screen again. Sean Astin always seemed positive, but Corey Feldman was less than certain, at one point saying, "NO! There is no Goonies 2! I'm sorry but it's just not gonna happen,” though he did also add, “...course now that I've said that, they'll do it." Director Richard Donner seemed to be the most in favor of a sequel saying it was a “definite thing” back in 2010.

Bradley Cooper Is Out! Could One Of These Actors Replace Harrison Ford As Indiana Jones?


Harrison Ford Joseph Gordon-Levitt Josh Brolin Clive Owen Matt Damon

Chill out internet, Bradley Cooper will not be playing Indiana Jones in a reboot of the movies, we repeat, he will not be playing Indiana Jones! Rumours that the Silver Linings Playbook actor would replace Harrison Ford for a fifth Indiana Jones film have been staunchly denied by all involved. Although we have to admit, we reckon Bradley would make a pretty great Indy. At least think about it, Disney?

It’s nowhere near certain that a new Indiana Jones film is in the works, but if there is, and they are looking to replace veteran star Ford, then we suggest one of these actors instead.

Labor Day Review


Good

With one of Kate Winslet's most layered, resonant performances, this film is definitely worth a look, even though the indulgent filmmaking style pushes it perilously close to Nicholas Sparks-style sappiness. Clearly, writer-director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) is shifting gears as a filmmaker, but the movie is in dire need of just a hint of his usual jagged wit.

It's set in 1980s New Hampshire, as the agoraphobic Adele (Kate Winslet) is struggling to raise her sensitive teen son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) on her own after her husband (Clark Gregg) left. Then one night escaped convict Frank (Josh Brolin) arrives at their house in need of a place to hide. The next day, Frank offers to help with some repairs on the house. He also notices that Henry needs to learn how to throw a baseball. And that Adele needs some affection. So over the long Labor Day Weekend, he becomes the badly needed man of the house. Then when a neighbour (J.K. Simmons) and a cop (James Van Der Beek) start snooping, they make a plan to run for the Canadian border.

Instead of a dark, menacing edge, Reitman washes the film in sun-dappled earnestness, ramping up the soapy emotions rather than the grittier issues these people so badly need to deal with. This reaches a low point when Frank teaches Adele how to bake a peach pie in a scene reminiscent of the lusty pot-spinning sequence in Ghost: laughably ridiculous. Fortunately, Winslet and Brolin generate some uneasy chemistry, and Griffith is a fine young actor in a very difficult role. Together, they pull the film back from the sudsy brink just in time for a genuinely tense final sequence.

Josh Brolin Reveals Past Substance Abuse Issues: "I Tried Heroin"


Josh Brolin

Josh Brolin has had a documented struggle with alcohol in the past, and was admitted into rehab late last year (2013).

But the 46 year-old recently revealed he also has suffered from substance abuse, and was even a heroin user.

In a candid interview with The Guardian, Brolin stated, "I tried heroin, that sounds so horrible when you put it like that. But yeah, I tried heroin."

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Trailer


The everlasting trail of violence, death and deceit continues with the return of several characters from the original ‘Sin City’ movie. Dwight McCarthy is back, this time running to the rescue of his ex-girlfriend Ava Lord who claims she is being abused by her wealthy husband Damien; he has his own reasons for wanting to help her, but he could be in for a nasty surprise. The framed and punished Marv wakes up after supposed execution by electric chair only to find that he is lying amongst several dead bodies and can’t remember how he ended up there. Following, her near miss at the hands of serial child-killer Roark Junior, Nancy struggles to deal with the painful death of her rescuer, police officer John Hartigan. Plus, a new face shows up in Sin City, a gambler named Johnny who lands himself in mortal danger when he tries to take on the town’s most formidable villain.

Kate Winslet Shines As A Pie-Baking Tortured Soul In "Labor Day"


Kate Winslet Josh Brolin

The Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin starrer Labor Day made the rounds at festivals last year and now that it’s finally making it to the cinema, critics have a lot to say – unfortunately, the reviews aren’t all glowing. The film centers on a pregnant divorced mother (it gets complicated from the beginning) who gets taken hostage (more or less) by an escaped criminal (Josh Brolin). As they live and bake pies together for three whole days, both Adele (Winslet) and her 13-year-old son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) gradually develop different kinds of affection for Frank, at one point even making plans to flee to Canada.

Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road Premiere
Winslet has emerged as the obvious star in Labor Day.

Most critics find the movie’s unlikely romance highly unbelievable, like the NY Times’ Stephen Holden describes it as “designed for the crowd that devours Nicholas Sparks’s romantic daydreams. If it’s a hit, it could generate an uptick in prison correspondence from lonely women to roughnecks behind bars.”

Review Round-Up: 'Labor Day' Is Oversentimental But Hugely Enjoyable If One Suspends Disbelief


Kate Winslet Josh Brolin Tobey Maguire

Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet star in Labor Day, an unconventional romance in which Adele (Winslet) a lonely single mother, and her son Henry (Gattlin Griffith), give a wounded man a lift. The man, Frank, is in fact an escaped convict who places Adele in a difficult position when the police begin to ransack her small southern town in order to find him. Jason Reitman (Juno) has directed and adapted Labor Day from Joyce Maynard's 2013 novel of the same name.

Labor Day
Labor Day stars Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet.

Critical response to the film has been mixed with some critics finding the film underwhelming whilst others highly praise its subtleties. Most reviews comment on the oversentimental focus of the film, as embodied by Stephen Holden's comments in The New York Times, in which he states: "Labor Day seems designed for the crowd that devours Nicholas Sparks' romantic daydreams."

Oldboy Review


Good

Moviegoers who know nothing about the iconic 2003 Korean thriller will perhaps enjoy this half-hearted remake. It lacks the subtlety and irony of Park Chan-wook's deranged masterpiece, but Spike Lee brings a certain technical sleekness that holds our interest. Especially as the complex plot begins to twist and turn, gleefully pulling the rug out from under us.

It centres on Joe (Brolin), a drunken loser who blows his last chance at his job by coming on to a client's wife. The next morning he wakes up in a sleazy hotel room that turns out to be a locked cell where he'll be held for the next 20 years. He's shown news updates on how he's the prime suspect in his wife's violent murder, and he watches his daughter grow up in an adoptive family's home. Suddenly focussed on revenge, he plots his escape and then is caught off guard when he's inexplicably released. With the help of his old friend Chucky (Imperioli) and helpful nurse Marie (Olsen), Joe tracks down his flamboyant jailer (Jackson) and then the creepy man (Copley) who paid the bills and now demands that Joe understands why he did it.

Yes, the plot is a big puzzle, and watching the various pieces fall into place keeps us riveted to the screen, even if nothing is particularly involving. Lee's mistake is to play everything dead straight, with only the odd hint of black humour or underlying madness. Instead, we get bigger action fight scenes (cool but choreographed) and a variety of surprises and revelations that often make us gasp. And all of this is played with razor-sharp intensity by Brolin, who gives us just enough emotion to keep us engaged with his journey.

'Oldboy' Claws Back Respectability, But Critics Remain Unconvinced


Josh Brolin Spike Lee

Spike Lee's Oldboy - a visceral thriller based on Park Chan-wook's classic 2004 movie - will have to do solid box-office business to justify itself after a wave of middling reviews from critics.

Oldboy Josh brolinJosh Brolin in Spike Lee's 'Oldboy'

Lee's remake follows the story of Joe Doucette - played here by Josh Brolin - a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement for no apparent reason. When he is suddenly released without explanation, he begins an obsessive mission to find out who imprisoned him. The remake co-stars Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, though despite the impressive cast, Oldboy appears to fall short of even the most basic of expectations.

'Oldboy' Remake: Did Spike Lee Just Mess Up A Brilliant Movie?


Spike Lee Josh Brolin

Spike Lee was always treading on glass with cheap shoes when he decided to take on the Oldboy project. The original, 2003 film was a cult classic; adored by international audiences and famed for its unerring approach to violence and a twisted plot.

Oldboy 2013Josh Brolin and Samuel L. Jackson in Oldboy, the remake

It would be fair to say that Lee had a pretty solid canvas on which to build, but would appear – according to the critics at least – that he missed the opportunity to provide a good western remake of a brilliant foreign movie.

Jennifer's on fire! Ok so we always knew The Hunger Games: Catching Fire would probably outdo the original at the box-office, though what we didn't expect was that the teen franchise flick would be critically acclaimed. Of course, it could have all been very different - check out the alternative Hunger Games cast here.

Josh Brolin Spent His Weekend Screaming At Cab Drivers & Assaulting Bouncers


Josh Brolin

Josh Brolin was involved in a drunken bar fight on Friday (1st November). The Gangster Squad actor was spotted by patrons of O'Brien's Irish Pub in Santa Monica. He was captured on film and is clearly drunk, almost unable to stand independently.

Brolin appears to have been irritated at the bouncers for closing up the bar, at the unreasonable time of 2am. One bouncer attempted to point the American Gangster actor away from the bars but refused to be moved. A fight ensues with Brolin flailing his arms around and bouncing on the balls of his feet to the amusement of onlookers.

'Superman: Man Of Steel' Sequel: Who Will Play Batman?


Zack Snyder Ryan Gosling Josh Brolin Joe Manganiello Max Martini Matthew Goode Superman Batman

The question on every DC fans lips since director Zack Snyder announced plans for the next Superman film, which will feature Batman, is who will play the caped crusader? Christian Bale, who starred in the Dark Knight trilogy, is definitely out of the running as he has no interest in reprising the role.

Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling at a special screening of Only God Forgives at the BAM Harvey Theatre, New York.

Here's what we know about the film so far: Snyder announced at last month's San Diego Comic-Con that a sequel is in the works and will star Henry Cavill as Superman. The script is currently being written by David Goyer, who wrote Man of Steel. The film is due to be released in cinemas in 2015, with filming scheduled to begin next year. Owing to the film's tight schedule, reports are suggesting Snyder's casting decisions will be revealed in the next few weeks.

Ryan Gosling Or Josh Brolin - Who Should Be The Next Batman?


Ryan Gosling Josh Brolin

So it would appear as though Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin have ascended to the top of the list for the next Batman. The moody pair are apparently both deemed grumpy and good looking enough to play the mega-rich benefactor-cum-superhero when he next appears, probably in Man of Steel 2 when they’ll be fighting Henry Cavill’s Superman.

But who should it be?

Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake is finally gathering the momentum it deserves with a brand new trailer following the harrowing poster we were treated to not so long ago. Following what felt like years of stuttering, possible Will Smith and Steven Spielberg partnerships and even the dreaded kibosh, the American reboot of this Korean cult classic has a trailer.

The first red-band trailer for Spike Lee's remake of Park Chan-wook's classic and disturbing movie Oldboy has rolled out online, featuring all the hammer-centric bloody revenge of the original. Josh Brolin plays a man abducted and held in captivity for 20 years before being mysteriously set free by his captor.

Though many fans of the original remain wary of Lee's remake, the movie - written by I Am Legend scribe Mark Protosevich - is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Park's cult film - which makes up part of the director's Vengeance Trilogy - features one particularly unsettling scene, though it's unclear whether Spike Lee has retained it. Bloggers who saw an early screening in April said the remake maintains the shocking key plot twist, according to The Guardian.

Gangster Squad Review


Very Good

This may be based on a true story, but the filmmakers never bother exploring the complexities of historical events, instead opting for a comic book-style approach that's entertaining but somewhat unsatisfying. Still, this style-over-substance approach at least produces a rollicking police thriller that's often a lot of fun to watch, packed with gifted actors who gleefully chomp through the scenery.

The setting is 1949 Los Angeles, where the notorious gangster Mickey Cohen (Penn) is launching a Chicago-style mob takeover of the city. The police chief (Nolte) is determined to stop him, but feels surrounded by corruption, so he hires straight-arrow detective John (Brolin) to head up a secret squad that will operate off the books to stop Cohen, whatever it takes. John's pregnant wife (Enos) isn't thrilled by this, but she helps him select his team: techie Conway (Ribisi), gunslinger Max (Patrick), hot-shot Coleman (Mackie) and quick-learning rookie Navidad (Pena). And then there's pretty-boy detective Jerry (Gosling), who courts danger by launching a fling with Mickey's moll Grace (Stone). Understandably, their task doesn't go smoothly.

Billed as the untold story of what really happened, the film ignores quite a few key facts while indulging in implausible plotting and overly colourful characterisations. In other words, it's impossible to believe anything we're watching, which eliminates all of the relevance and resonance that could have filled this story of police corruption, out-of-control capitalism and especially the use of illegal methods to do the right thing. Instead, the film is all shiny surfaces, with flashy production design, too-immaculate costumes and haircuts, and a plot that reduces a complex situation into a simplistic action movie narrative.

Video - One Direction Take Aim And Fire At Photographers At 'Men In Black III' Premiere - Arrivals Part 3


Tommy Lee Jones arrives on the red carpet at the 'Men in Black III' premiere held at New York's Ziegfeld Theater alongside film co-star Josh Brolin and Josh's wife and 'Unfaithful' actress Diane Lane. Pussycat Dolls lead singer and former 'X Factor' judge Nicole Scherzinger makes an appearance, daring to go braless in a crimson gown with a loose front.

Cheeky Brit award winning boyband One Direction also made an appearance toting plastic Nerf guns and subsequently firing at the disgruntled photographers - one of which branded them 'f***ing idiots' as they were shot in the shoulder by one of the flying green plastic discs that serve as ammo for the popular toy

Men In Black 3 Review


Good
A decade after Men in Black II, the cast and crew attempt to rekindle that blend of dry humour and outrageous silliness. But instead of ramping up the hilarity, as in part 2, this movie is weighed down with a messy plot and jokes that are amusing if not actually funny.

One day Agent J (Smith) wakes up to find that his partner Agent K (Jones) has been dead for more than 40 years. It turns out that evil alien Boris (Clement) has travelled back to 1969 to stop K from capturing him so he can conquer Earth. So J has little choice but to follow him. First, he must convince new boss O (Thompson) to let him go, and then he has to explain everything to the younger K (Brolin) and work with another alien (Stuhlbarg) who can see multiple futures.

Milk Review


Good
Thirty years before Sen. Barack Obama broke through a significant political color barrier, Harvey Milk tore down a similar wall that was obstructing America's gay community from holding political office.

Milk finds experimental auteur Gus Van Sant taking cautious steps back toward the mainstream to celebrate Harvey's accomplishments. Van Sant's tender human-interest story, which showcases Sean Penn's considerable talents, is a closer relative to earlier efforts such as Finding Forrester or Good Will Hunting than to recent, abstruse features like Elephant, the spare Gerry, or the haunting Last Days.

American Gangster Review


OK
There's something dead in Denzel Washington's eyes nearly all of the way through Ridley Scott's American Gangster, which takes what should have been a mesmerizing slice of urban historical grit and grinds it into roughly two hours of standard issue cinema. Washington is playing Frank Lucas, a real-life crime boss who for a period lasting from the late 1960s into the following decade, ran Manhattan "from 110th to 155th, river to river." A real slick character who doesn't need to strut his worth on the street, Lucas hates flash like a junkie hates rehab: It reminds him of all he truly is but doesn't want to be. Facing off against him is New Jersey narc Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe), a womanizing tough guy with a short fuse but a heart of gold (aren't they all), who's so clean that when he and his partner come across $1 million in untraceable cash he had the bad manners to turn it all in without taking a single bill for himself. In a big-city police department in the 1970s, boy scout behavior like that will just plain get you killed -- the guy who's not on the take is the guy who could very well sell you down the river when the grand jury comes sniffing around for who is on the take.

Ridley Scott has a good thing going here, tossing these two Hollywood bigshots into the ring and letting them play cops and robbers while he slathers on the period detail with a trowel. There's some serious Superfly outfits (including a godawful $50,000 chinchilla coat that plays a surprisingly key part in a plot twist), a generous helping of soul music, enough fantastic character actors to choke a horse (Idris Elba, Jon Polito, Kevin Corrigan, an incredibly sleazy Josh Brolin, and so on), the specter of Vietnam playing on every television in sight, and the odd enjoyment one gets from watching cops in the pre-militarized, pre-SWAT days take down an apartment with just revolvers, the occasional shotgun, and a sledgehammer to whack down the door. Scott's smart enough to let the story cohere organically and without rush, keeping his main contenders apart for as long as could possibly be borne, making them fully developed characters in their own right and not just developed in opposition to the other. But there's something in this broad and expansive tale that can't quite come together, and it seems to start in Denzel's eyes.

Grindhouse Review


Excellent
Longtime buddies Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez have worked together before (Four Rooms, Sin City), but this takes it to the next level. Grindhouse is their shared B-movie fantasy: a three-hour, bare-knuckled double feature epic, an unapologetic celebration of '70s-era hardcore schlock that's authentic, witty beyond expectation, and unerringly crowd-pleasing.

In a recent TV interview, Tarantino said he and Rodriguez had always wished those low-budget flicks were as good as their posters -- and they set out to achieve that, decades after the movies' heyday. With an obvious passion for the genre, the pair has recreated the experience of being at some cheap Texas drive-in with two features, fake coming attractions, missing reels, local ads, and announcements from theater management. Even if you don't catch on to everything, just watching the package is a complete thrill.

It's The Rage Review


Bad
Quite a cast has been assembled for this Altman-esque tale of interlocked lives, all clamoring around the "serious social problem" of gun control. While there's no denying that the USA has over fifty million gun owners and it's a subject worthy of address and debate, this movie thuddingly hits the same numb point over and over again: guns are bad, guns can kill. That's about as resonant as It's the Rage will get.

Jeff Daniels and Joan Allen play a miserable suburban couple whose marriage is disrupted by an accidental shooting in their living room at midnight. As it turns out, the guy was Daniels' business partner. Allen moves out in disgust and, through a process of self-discovery, figures out that her happy little life was nothing more than a middle class prison. She hides away at her new workplace, in the employ of eccentric millionaire and computer guru Gary Sinise. Daniels sits at home fuming, renting pornography and playing with his gun.
