The Homesman Trailer


George Briggs is a claim jumper who has only ever known a dishonest life. When he finds himself in serious trouble (sat astride an impatient horse with his hands bound behind his back and a noose around his neck tied to a branch), he starts to think this could finally be the end for him. That is until he is found by a lone woman with a wagon named Mary Bee Cuddy who agrees to free him from his plight in exchange for a favour. Living alone, she is struggling to carry out an important personal mission; she wants to take three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa now that their husbands can now longer cope with them. Thus, she asks Briggs to help her on the dangerous five week journey and, despite his serious reservations, he agrees to act as her aide and protector against the brutalities they may face along the way.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer


Some years ago, four baby turtles were discovered in a puddle of radioactive ooze in a sewer by a rat named Splinter. Adopting them as his own, he gave them the names of the four most influential Italian painters: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael, and the humanoid reptiles grew up learning the art of ninjitsu from their rodentine sensei. Defiant defenders of New York City, they must band together to fight against the merciless Foot Clan; a gang of vicious criminals led by city samurai The Shredder. Meanwhile, an aspiring reporter named April is following the turtles, but with no-one likely to believe her story the city residents have little hope left for peace in their crime ravaged home. Determined to restore humanity to the town, April joines the turtles in their fight - though not even Splinter is strong enough to take on their latest enemy.

'The Homesman': Cannes 2014 Reviews Are Mostly Positive


Tommy Lee Jones Hilary Swank Meryl Streep Hailee Steinfeld William Fichtner

‘The Homesman’ is the latest film to face the critics at Cannes 2014, which has thrown out some modern classics (like ‘Mr Turner) and some true stinkers (like ‘Grace of Monaco).

The Homesman

Starring Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, William Fichtner and Meryl Streep and helmed by Lee Jones in his fourth directorial effort, ‘The Homesman’ hasn’t reached one end of the critical spectrum or another, pleasing most critics but failing to excite others. This reaction has accumulated a fairly healthy 67% aggregate score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Extended Teaser Trailer

The law enforcers of the city are unequipped to deal with the level of power that the top villains of the streets wield, those being The Shredder and his brutal Foot Clan. There is still one last hope for the town though with the arrival of four mutant brothers (Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello); laboratory guinea pigs (well, turtles) that found themselves living in their sewer for most of their lives while being trained in the art of ninjitsu by their rodentine sensei Splinter. They have now surfaced to defend the human race against The Shredder and April is determined to gain the exclusive story on their existence alongside her trusty cameraman Vernon Fenwick. Question is, is she ready to face such formidable creatures?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Teaser Trailer


In a city rife with crime and destruction, there's danger at every turn and suffering in every corner. The real authority of New York is The Shredder and his violent Foot Clan, whose power supersedes both police and politics. The only hope for restoring safety to the streets comes in the form of four mutant brothers, created in a laboratory many years ago and who have now found their way out of the sewers. A plucky newspaper reporter named April O'Neil is determined to land an exclusive story on the arrival of these martial art heroes alongside her cameraman Vernon Fenwick, but on being faced directly with these teenage mutant ninja turtles, she doesn't feel as brave as she first appears. However, if she wants to save the city from total obliteration, she and the masked mutants (Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello) must team up and fight against Shredder and his formidable Clan.

Elysium Review


Excellent

As he did with District 9, South African filmmaker Blomkamp grounds this sci-fi thriller in present-day society, telling a story that resonates with a strong political kick. He also again uses effects in a off-handed way that never steals focus from the actors. On the other hand,he fails to build much of an emotional impact, even though the script continually tries to ramp up the personal drama. But the actors are all very watchable, and the film's urgent vibe keeps us gripped.

It's set in 2154 Los Angeles, a sprawling shantytown where people struggle to survive without adequate resources or health care. In orbit above the earth, Elysium is an idyllic refuge for the very wealthy. Protected by the fierce Secretary Rhodes (Foster), Elysium's only threat is illegal immigration from the surface. And that's what factory worker Max (Damon) wants to attempt after severe radiation poisoning. Even having a nurse (Braga) for a friend doesn't help him get proper care: he needs the high tech medicine on Elysium to survive. He turns to black-marketeer Spider (Moura) for help, and Spider fits Max with a devise that gives him physical strength plus technology to steal vital information from an Elysium contractor (Fichtner). So Rhodes unleashes sleeper agent Kruger (Copley) to stop Max.

Yes, the plot is somewhat convoluted, but the chaos makes it feel much more realistic than the more simplistic thrillers we usually see. It also helps that the digital effects feel so seamlessly integrated into the shaky-cam mayhem of the favelas, while even the more grandly photographed Elysium leaves the effects in the background. This allows Blomkamp to keep the focus on the characters, even if the splintering plot never draws us in emotionally. Braga's plotline is clearly designed to tug at the heart-strings, but her tentative romance with Max never goes anywhere. Max's friendship with Julio (Luna) is much more interesting.

The Lone Ranger Review


Good

Everything about this film screams excess, from the ludicrous two-and-a-half hour running time to the whopping scale of the action sequences to Johnny Depp's bizarro costume. But this reunion between Depp and his original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy director Verbinski is a solidly made romp that actually has some genuine laughs and thrills. There's certainly never a dull moment.

It's set in late-1860s Texas, where John Reid (Hammer) arrives to visit his brother Dan (Dale), whose wife Rebecca (Wilson) is John's former flame. After an elaborate prison break, John is deputised and joins the posse of rangers hunting down the escapee. When they're ambushed, John is the lone survivor, nursed back to health by quirky outsider Tonto (Depp), a Native American who knows how to get to the bottom of what's going on here. So they go undercover to find the truth, which involves a secret silver mine, construction on the first transcontinental American railway, and tensions between European settlers and the native Comanche community.

The script is a complex riot of details that resolutely refuse to gel into a coherent picture until the screenwriters are good and ready to fill in the gaps. In the mean time, they throw the characters into a series of madcap action set-pieces that are wildly cartoonish in the way everyone just dusts themselves off afterwards and carries on. From train crashes to horseback chases, this is non-stop action. And Verbinski is an expert at staging these massive sequences, so they're a lot of fun to watch, especially when the film is populated with such energetic characters.

Johnny Depp's Lone Ranger Make-Up Made The Actor Almost Unrecognisable


Johnny Depp Armie Hammer Jerry Bruckheimer William Fichtner

He's one of the most recognisable faces in the world and quite possibly the biggest movie-star of the moment, but when he put on his face-covering make-up for his role as Tonto in The Lone Ranger Johnny Depp was rendered unrecognisable to a number of people on the set of his new film, including some he's known for years.

The actor was speaking to MTV this week when he remembered that the first time make-up artist Joel Harlow transformed him into his next on-screen character that Jerry Bruckheimer, the movie's producer and the man who has worked with Depp throughout the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, didn't have the faintest idea that it was him behind all that make-up.

"Joel Harlow built the makeup and he came over and took some pictures," Depp said in his featurette for MTV, with Harlow adding, "I took those photographs to Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny showed it to Jerry and Jerry said, 'This is great; who is this?'"
