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.

Not Very 'Friendly'! Rupert Friend Means Serious Business In 'Hitman: Agent 47' [Trailer]


Rupert Friend Zachary Quinto Skip Woods

Agent 47 returns in a glossy re-boot of 2007 movie 'Hitman', with first time director Aleksander Bach at the helm and 'Homeland' star Rupert Friend taking over as the shaven-headed assassin intent on uncovering the mysteries of his past.

Rupert Friend is looking mean in 'Hitman: Agent 47'

From the producers of the original film, 'Hitman: Agent 47' is another high-octane action thriller with plenty of rapid fire gun fights, massive explosions, kooky gadgets and infeasible escapes, and while it is marketed as a re-make in the literal sense, there appears to be little in the way of re-hashed material from the original movie, which is just as well given the poor ratings following its release. After its first appearance at San Diego's Comic-Con last year, the first trailer has finally been unveiled to the public.

'Homeland' Season 4 Trailer Shows Carrie Back In The Field But Is The Series Out Of The Woods?


Claire Danes Rupert Friend Mandy Patinkin

Homeland, when it was first on our screen in 2011, became an instant hit. But after its third season, the reviews were becoming more mixed and less reliably in favour of the Showtime series. The nominations and awards followed suit and this year Homeland wasn't even nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the Primetime Emmys.

Starred Up Review


Very Good

Rising star Jack O'Connell delivers a ripping performance as a young convict with more baggage than you'd think humanly possible. And he's ably supported by Ben Mendelsohn and Rupert Friend in career-best performances. So even if the film indulges in just about every prison-movie cliche imaginable, the focus on intensely realistic characters makes it stand out from other movies.

O'Connell plays Eric, who at 19 is so violent that he has been "starred up" from his young-offenders prison to the big house. The hitch is that he's now on the same wing as Neville (Mendelsohn), the father he's never known. Eric is such a brute that the harsh governor (Sam Spruell) wants to keep him in a hole, but concerned therapist Oliver (Friend) thinks he can help Eric channel his anger in more positive directions. On the other hand, by attending therapy sessions Eric is putting himself right in the middle of his father's rival prison gang.

The demands of the plot are obvious from the start, as the film makes it clear that prison is a hopeless place where violence rules. So while director David Mackenzie (Young Adam) lets the usual vicious nastiness swirl through each scene, he also tries to keep the focus on Eric's more internal struggle against his lifetime of abuse and abandonment. This is of course far more interesting than the prison-life plot, giving O'Connell a chance to deliver a strikingly involving turn as a young guy who's outwardly terrifying but also thoughtful and intelligent.

'Starred Up': Jack O'Connell And Rupert Friend Star In Gritty British Prison Drama [Trailer]


Jack O'Connell Rupert Friend Ben Mendelsohn

Starred Up will be released tomorrow (21st March) when Jonathan Asser's brutal new drama will be unleashed on UK audiences. The prison therapist-turned-writer lends his unique personal perspective to this gritty and unrelenting snapshot of the British prison system. Asser used to struggle with his extreme rage until he learned to master it - and discovered a skill for calming violent prisoners; a job that gave him plenty of experiences to make his first screen play as raw as possible.

Jack O'Connell
Jack O'Connell Takes Centre-Stage In New British Independent Film, 'Starred Up.'

Jack O'Connell and Ben Mendelsohn are father and son, Eric and Neville, who find themselves locked up in the same prison after Eric (O'Connell) is deemed too dangerous for a Young Offenders Institution and is upgraded, or "starred up," to an adult prison two years early.

The Zero Theorem - Trailer And Feaurette


In a flamboyant, futuristic universe, Qohen Leth works as a computer hacker desperate to uncover the meaning of life. He appears to suffer from a range of conflicting phobias and his eccentricity forces him to stand out to the formidable Management who enlist him to try and crack the most fundamental formula of mankind history, the Zero Theorem. Meanwhile, he is waiting desperately for an important phone call that will reveal to him the purpose of human existence. But as he absorbs himself deeply with his own work at the dilapidated chapel he calls home, he finds himself repeatedly distracted by Management's teenager son Bob and a stunning blonde seductress named Bainsley who was specifically hired by the dictatorial authority. Qohen's sanity is frequently tested as it becomes more and more clear that the Zero Theorem is trying to tell him that all is for nothing.

'The Zero Theorem' is a vibrant sci-fi drama set in an almost Orwellian dystopian future. It has been directed by the Oscar nominated Terry Gilliam ('Twelve Monkeys', 'Brazil', 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail') and written by Pat Rushin ('No Ordinary Sun' short) in his full-length screenplay debut. It has already caused a stir having won the Future Film Festival Digital Award at the Venice Film Festival and it is set to be released in the UK on March 14th 2014.

'Homeland' Actor May Be Replacing Paul Walker In Film


Paul Walker Rupert Friend

Paul Walker's death was a shock to the world and his fans, but it also left many filmmakers scrambling to figure out what to do with his roles.

Homeland Season 3 Episode 6: Still Positive


Claire Danes Mandy Patinkin Rupert Friend Damian Lewis Morena Baccarin

It's taken six episodes but finally Homeland is back on its feet and back to its old ways, sending blistering plot twists, confusing u-turns and stunning revelations our way. Last night's episode in the UK, 'Still Positive,' saw Saul at an all-time low, Javadi's true ways exposed and Carrie turn the tables on her abduction.

Claire Danes Homeland
Carrie's Role As Double Agent Has Worked Well So Far.

The acting director of the CIA was still reeling after last episode's revelation that the gung-ho Senator Lockhart was in line for the permanent CIA role despite weeks of praise for keeping the organisation steady after the Langley bombing. He also resigned himself to accepting that his wife was still seeing the lover that she met in India. Another man may have stormed out or shouted; Saul had bigger fish to fry as Majid "The Magician" Javadi had captured undercover agent Carrie.
