Geostorm Trailer

In the future, technology has been developed to control the Earth's climate; weather forecasts have never been more accurate because it's all being controlled from a massive satellite in space. Like any piece of technology, however, it can fail which is very bad news for mankind. When the satellite manages to launch a series of major disasters all over the world - including sky high tidal waves, tornadoes in their hundreds, fire vortices from the ground, violent thunderstorms, hail stones as big as boulders and deadly arctic blasts - it's all experts can do to stop the satellite from creating a geostorm; that is, a storm so powerful and expansive that it could destroy the world in a matter of hours.

Gods Of Egypt Review


With a massive scale and a digital cast of thousands, this ancient Egyptian romp tries to be both a new version of those 1950s Biblical toga epics and a generous dose of camp silliness. The result will be a guilty pleasure for some in the audience, especially those who enjoy watching grown men leap around in short skirts. The actors are sometimes lost in the overwhelming animation, and the casting of Westerners as North Africans is more than a little dubious. But the script is smarter than it looks, and director Alex Proyas is clearly in a playful mood.

The premise conflates the golden age of the Pharaohs with the ancient world of Egyptian gods. And things kick off when the bitter god Set (Gerard Butler) launches a reign of terror by killing his brother, blinding his nephew Horus (Nokolaj Coster-Waldau) and taking over the mortal world, enslaving all humans. Horus' greatest fan is the muscly slave Bek (Brenton Thwaites) who, encouraged by his glamorous girlfriend Zaya (Courtney Eaton), sneaks into Set's palace and steals one of Horus' eyes. He then strikes a deal to help Horus assume his rightful throne. But this means travelling into the sky to confront his grandfather Ra (Geoffrey Rush), then teaming up with sneering god of wisdom Thoth (Chadwick Boseman) and duplicitous Hathor (Yung) to take on Set.

All of this is so ridiculous that it's difficult to stop giggling. And that seems to be part of the idea, as Proyas merrily cranks up the snarky wit in every scene, especially as he indulges in a series of ludicrous set-pieces that feel like videogames populated by toy action figures. The digital effects continually engulf the characters, transforming the gods inexplicably into animal-headed metallic robots. But they also create some genuinely gorgeous moments of spectacle, with sprawling landscapes and whooshing action. Basically, the actors have little choice but to hang on for the ride along with the audience.

The Croods

This week's big global release is the DreamWorks animated prehistoric comedy-adventure The Croods, led by an all-star vocal cast including Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds. Look for a huge push for must-have spin-off merchandise for this one, as it's packed with cuddly creatures. And hope it does well at the box office, because it would make a great franchise too.

Doing the publicity rounds this week, Gerard Butler has been out promoting his new White House thriller Olympus Has Fallen. Flitting between New York and Los Angeles to appear on every chat show possible, it's no wonder that he was somewhat fed-up by the time he reached David Letterman's Manhattan studio. Of course, the paparazzi caught it on camera as he lost his patience with a fan trying to get multiple autographs. But he manages to recovers his usual charm.

Bieber Blues: What is happening to Justin Bieber? The former loveable scamp appears to have become a target for the tabloids, especially the British ones. He endured a torrid time in London before cancelling a show in Portugal, apparently owing to poor ticket sales. Is this a crisis?

Credit Check: Ever wondered how much Ashton Kutcher has in the bank? How about Jay-Z, Mel Gibson, Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger or even Joe Biden. Well, one hacker - seemingly based in Russia - has posted the financial details of the world's biggest stars onto a hastily made website. Some of the numbers are big. Huge, in fact.

Brandi Glanville's Night Of Passion With Gerard Butler Turns Out To Be True!

Brandi Glanville Gerard Butler

Brandi Glanville is not necessarily a name that sticks with you, something that is especially true when the person trying to recall her name is Scottish actor Gerard Butler, who admitted that he had slept with the reality star before, he just couldn't remember her name afterwards. Butler confirmed that the pair got down to business during Howard Stern's Sirius XM show last night (March 11), saying that the liaison happened over 'one afternoon,' rather than the week-long love fest described by Glanville during the Jan. 24 episode of Watch What Happens Live.

Apparently, Butler became aware that his run-in with the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star was common knowledge when a paparazzo reportedly told him 'Brandi Glanville says you're great in bed.' Butler then responded by asking 'who's Brandi Glanville?' (he isn't the only person asking this in the world we're sure) because apparently the hunky Scot never found out Brandi's surname nor did he know she was famous in the first place, nor did he know that she 'was going to f--king tell people about it!'

Gerard Butler Admits Sleeping With Brandi Glanville: "She Is Wild"

Gerard Butler Brandi Glanville

Gerard Butler has admitting to hooking up with 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Brandi Glanville, but says he forgot her name. The actor, star of Olympus Has Fallen, confirmed the tryst on The Howard Stern Show on Monday, saying, "It was a one-afternooner, but it was fun.She is wild."

Glanville, 40, made the whole thing sound like a much bigger deal when she went public during the January 24 episode of 'Watch What Happens Live' saying she and Butler "had a little week of fun" and giving him an "11" out of ten rating. The 300 star was later informed of the comments by a paparazzo, who said, "Brandi Glanville says you're great in bed." Gerard's response? "Who's Brandi Glanville?" Ouch.

The actor recalled the incident to Stern, "And you know what I said: 'Who's Brandi Glanville?" Butler laughed, "Because one, I didn't know her last name and two, I didn't know she was a celebrity and I didn't know she was going to f--king tell people about it!" Once the actor figured out who she was, he called Glanville up, "I said one, 'I'm not very happy you did that because there are certain things you keep a little private.' And two, 'I'm sorry I said I didn't know who you were!"

Jimmy Kimmel Live! Oscars Shows See Much-Anticipated Movie The Movie 2V Trailer

Jimmy Kimmel Rachel Weisz Gerard Butler

It’s become the case that as sure as night follows day, so the Jimmy Kimmel Live Show will run a bang up program post-Oscars awards show.

The show followed the immediate aftermath of the 2013 Oscars, which saw the likes of Argo and Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence, Ang Li and Bradley Cooper walk off with the main honors, and Kimmel was once again quick to mock the Hollywood film industry with a show brimming with satire. MTV reports that Kimmel opened with a lively monologue which saw him throw barbs at E!’s Ryan Seacrest, saying that he “took home the award for Best Animated Short” as well as poke fun at John Travolta, who’d struggled to pronounce film name Les Miserables at the event itself.

Then there was the sequel to Movie the Movie, the fake movie trailer that has since gone on to become a Youtube favorite after its debut at last year’s Oscar post-show. The sequel was called Move the Movie V2 and switched between a multiple of genres and featured the likes of Rachel Weisz and Armie Hammer which most notably mocked The Twilight Saga. A zombie apocalypse meanwhile takes care of the likes of Jude Law, whilst Gerard Butler also appears for a cameo. Yet inspite of the undoubted hi-jinks, there was something lacking in Kimmel’s show last night, and it wasn’t his fault – more over it just seemed that the material he had to work with, the Oscars themselves, was a little dull this year.

Being Valentine's Day week, cinemas are flooded with romantic movies like the new teen franchise-launcher Beautiful Creatures. US audiences can also weep their way through the new Nicholas Sparks drama Safe Haven, while in the UK couples instead can laugh at Judd Apatow's epic rom-com This Is 40 and the clunky British farce Run For Your Wife. And for alternative viewing, there's the ultimate date movie A Good Day to Die Hard, Bruce Willis' fifth instalment in the crashing, exploding franchise.

And this kind of action dominates the week's new selection of trailers, starting with the very explosive-looking Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler as a Secret Service agent trying to retake the White House after a terrorist invasion. The muscly cast includes Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo. It opens in March.

Trapped in the building as it becomes under siege by Kang's cohorts is Mike Banning; a former Secret Service agent who was discredited after making a mistake at the expense of a life while acting as a Presidential guard.

Movie 43 Review


A collection of random shorts that focus mainly on idiotic male behaviour, this portmanteau comedy is only occasionally amusing, never making anything of its astonishing cast. Frankly, we spend most of the time wondering how the filmmakers lured these A-listers to appear in these pointless, nasty little films. And while the premises have potential, not a single one has a decent punchline.

As a prank, two teens make up a banned online film called Movie 43. While their brainly little brother searches for it, he runs across a series of clips that mainly focus on awkward vulgarity between the sexes. Bitter exes (Culkin and Stone) have a rude exchange that's broadcast on a supermarket sound system. Pratt is shocked when his girlfriend (Faris) asks him to "poop" on her, and agrees because he loves her. Parents (Watts and Schreiber) homeschool their teen son (White) with the goal of showing him how excruciating life will be. Two pals (Scott and Knoxville) kidnap a leprechaun (Butler) who's reluctant to give them his gold. And a 1950s basketball coach (Howard) tries to convince his players that they're winners because they're black.

Others are dating scenarios: Winslet goes on a blind date with a guy (Jackman) who has testicles on his neck; Berry and Merchant play an increasingly deranged game of Truth or Dare in a Mexican restaurant; a pre-teen (Bennett) can't cope when his young date (Moretz) has her first period; Batman (Sudeikis) messes up Robin's (Long) attempt at speed-dating; Banks struggles to cope with her new boyfriend's (Duhamel) obsessive cartoon cat. There are also a few random advert spoofs, including one for the naked-woman shaped iBabe, which leads to trouble for the company CEO (Gere).

Movie 43 Trailer

If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.

With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.

Directed by : Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner, Jonathan van Tulleken

Box Office Round Up: Argo Takes The Top Spot After Sluggish Weekend

Ben Affleck Gerard Butler James Bond

There was another new face atop the Box Office charts at the end of this weekend (26-28 October), with Ben Affleck’s newest project, Argo, taking the top spot on it’s third week in the chart.

Argo made the leap from second to first;after an impressive weekend saw it take $12,355,000, estimates report, taking its overall domestic earnings to just over $60 million. Meanwhile, last weeks number one, Paranormal Activity 4, slid right down to number four as audiences decided they would prefer political thrills to supernatural frights over Halloween weekend. Hotel Transylvania and Taken 2 were the other non-debutants in the top five, with newbie Cloud Atlas taking third spot in the Box Office with a rather meagre $9,400,000.

Three other debutants marked a strangely slow start to their Box Office careers, with Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Fun Size and Chasing Mavericks all collectively taking only slightly more than Argo pulled in by itself. Silent Hill, which tied with Taken 2 for the fifth spot on the movie chart, pulled a reasonable $8 million, whilst the high school comedy Fun Size took a little over £4 million and Gerard Butler’s surfing movie Chasing Mavericks took a scanty $2.2 million.

Hot Tickets! This Weekend's Movie Releases: Cloud Atlas, Chasing Mavericks, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Pusher

Tom Hanks Gerard Butler Agyness Deyn

Can Paranormal Activity 4 and Argo be shifted from the top of the US Box Office? It's slim pickings this week, in terms of big money releases but if any movie is going to do it, it will be Cloud Atlas, the sprawling adaptation of David Mitchell's novel. We'll also look at the rest of this week's main releases: Chasing Mavericks, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and Pusher.

Cloud Atlas has been getting some heavy promotion over the last few weeks, so curiosity, at the very least, should get movie fans into the theaters this week. The movie's producers will be hoping that this is the case, because the film is on thin ice with the critics, having scored a shaky 60% on the Rotten Tomatoes site. The general consensus seems to be that although the movie is well made, it could have done with a firmer editorial hand. Claudia Puig summed it up by saying "The cumulative effect is one of spectacle over substance."

At The Movies: Chasing Mavericks Review Roundup

Gerard Butler

It's a big few weeks for movies, but a little surfer flick has floated in under the radar; we've taken a look at some Chasing Maverick reviews, and promise to ride the waves of surfing puns for a long as we can stay on our board.

Refusing to wax up and hit the waves is Alonso Duralde, who gives the film a wholly negative review. He writes, "With a storyline as by-the-numbers as a square dance, the movie's one surprise comes with the closing credits -- namely, that this trite "inspirational" movie is the product of two world-class filmmakers, Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted." And this review is endemic amongst the multiple negative pieces out there. Kathleen Murphy sounds like she wants to bail: " see what 'Chasing Mavericks' missed entirely: the transfiguring energy that animated this remarkable child of the sea." And Rafer Guzman of Newsday can't wait to get the wetsuit off, writing: "Chasing Mavericks" invents minor conflicts but avoids major problems, coming off less like a biographical drama than a visit from a guest lecturer during Sunday school."

Overall, Chasing Mavericks, which gains little from the rugged good looks of Gerard Butler, who plays Frosty Hesson, got a low average score of 42% on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. And we've run out of surfing metaphors because we don't really know anything about it. Bye.

Gerard Butler Explains His Near Death Experience

Gerard Butler Jonny Weston

Gerard Butler’s latest film Chasing Mavericks hits cinemas on October 26th. The movie tells the tale of an adventurous boy, his surfing teacher and a mammoth wave, and filming it wasn’t the safest thing to do, recalls Butler.

Talking to ABC News, the Scottish born star said “That’s crazy!” while watching a clip of an accident that occurred amidst a giant wave. “Even when I see that it brings back memories. I was down and I just didn’t come back up, really, I was down for that wave and I was down for a long time. I started to think ‘wow I’m going to die making a movie,’” explained Butler, before going on to highlight some of the perils of become a surfer. He did express his desire to get out there and surf, though, so it looks like the incident didn’t put him off the sport for life, in fact the whole experience seems to have given him a zest for life, and encouraged him to take on new challenges. Sounds like a empty new years resolution to us.

Gerard Butler Opens Up About ‘Chasing Maverick’ Surfing Accident

Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler has opened up about the ordeal of being pulled under the waves after a surfing trip went badly wrong last December. Butler stars in ‘Chasing Maverick’ as real-life surfer Jay Moriaty, who in 1994 as a 16 year-old drew notoriety and acclaim from the surfing fraternity in 1994 after being wiped out by a 30-foot wave only to continue surfing almost instantly.

Butler though faced his own wipeout moment last year when filming and didn’t handle it quite as well, nearly drowning. Talking to USA Today, the Scottish actor said that underwater "all of those things were going around my head, going 'This is it. If I panic now…" Things got even worse as a second wave hit him and he found himself submerged again. “I felt very present” he reflected. “There was something that felt very normal about it. But by the time I got to the point I got to thinking, 'I'm in big trouble now,' that was only a about a quarter of the way through it. It went on and on and on. And then I started thinking, I just wanted to scream. And I was so deep underwater. I wanted to scream 'Help, somebody!' Or 'Mom!' Or something. And yet I knew the second I did that I was done."

Thankfully a crew member was nearby and Butler managed to grab onto his hand and was pulled out of the water. It was a near scare that only gave the Hollywood A-lister an increased respect for the surfer he portrays in ‘Chasing Maverick’, out this Friday.

When surfing legend Frosty Hesson pulled a drowning 8-year-old boy out of the water while he was surfing, he was unaware that their bond would develop and change their lives forever. Seven years later, Jay Moriarty is a teenager and an enthusiastic surfing amateur. Jay is estranged from his father and sees the aloof Frosty as his idol who first inspired him to ride the waves. One day, he discovers that the mythological surf break, Mavericks, is more than just a story; it's real and a matter of miles away from where he lives in Santa Cruz, California. He is determined to ride the massive waves at Half Moon Bay to the extreme worry of Frosty who cannot bear to see Jay at risk again. When Jay's mother tells Frosty that nothing he says will stop Jay riding the wave, he decides that he will instead train him to survive it with a variety of intense exercises. They soon come to release that their journey is no longer about surfing, but about freedom and believing in yourself.

Coriolanus Review

Actor-director Fiennes sets Shakespeare's military tragedy in a modern-day war setting, which gives it a meaty kick of recognition. But it's such a bombastic film that it's difficult to find much emotional resonance in it.

Amid political and social turmoil, Martius (Fiennes) is a blunt Roman soldier, subduing insurrections in the surrounding kingdoms, making an enemy of Volscian leader Tullus (Butler) but returning home a war hero and crowned Coriolanus.

Despite the help of his military-leader mother (Redgrave), his loyal wife Virgilia (Chastain) and a respected senator (Cox), Martius is unable - and unwilling - to play the political game, insulting both the senate and the public. Banished from public life, he joins with Tullus and sets about conquering Rome his own way.

Machine Gun Preacher Review

This remarkable true story resists being forced into a standard movie structure, which makes the film feel overlong as events seem to go in circles.

But the worthy story is packed with scenes that are suspenseful and inspiring.

Sam Childers (Butler) is at the end of his rope: just out of prison, still caught up in a wasted criminal life with pal Donnie (Shannon), and neglecting his wife Lynn (Monaghan) and their daughter Paige (Campos, then Carroll). Then at rock-bottom, Lynn's faith gets through to him, and he changes his life.

The Bounty Hunter Review

Aniston and Butler mysteriously rustle up just enough chemistry in this simplistic rom-com to make it enjoyable. We never really like their characters, but some of the film's contrived situations are genuinely funny.

Nicole (Aniston) is a New York journalist who's so busy with a breaking story that she neglects to turn up for a court date and ends up on the bail-jumper list of bounty hunter Milo (Butler), her ex-husband. Their stormy marriage didn't last long, and Milo is happy for the chance to get some revenge. But he's being chased by the goons (Coster and Garland) of an Atlantic City loan shark (Moriarty). Meanwhile, Nicole also has a lovelorn colleague (Sudeikis) and a vicious henchman (Greene) after her.

RocknRolla Review

Here's some good news for Guy Ritchie fans. RocknRolla gives off the impression that the once-heralded filmmaker isn't trying so hard any more to jolt, confuse, stimulate, and entertain his demanding followers. As a result, he delivers his most jolting, confusing, stimulating, and flat-out entertaining picture since Snatch in 2000.

RocknRolla is sexy, fast, loose, smart, and extremely funny. It's crammed with colorful criminals, which Ritchie and cinematographer David Higgs backlight to great effect. It chokes on delightfully screwy schemes, which the director and his editor James Herbert slice, tape, and test drive at breakneck speeds. And that's the key. It keeps moving, hardly caring if you are keeping up.

300 Review

Everything old is new again in 300, director Zack Snyder's account of the barbaric Battle of Thermopylae, a film that is ridiculously stylish and commendably substantive. I expected the former (Snyder's source material is a graphic novel from cult hero Frank Miller) and was delighted by the latter, as 300 winds up being far more original than I thought possible.

Like Robert Rodriguez in Sin City, Snyder employs cutting-edge visual technology and green-screen effects to essentially photocopy Miller's acclaimed work of the same name. Because Miller's graphic novels have been fountains of inspiration for a handful of recent directors, his style has become overly identifiable. Splotches of crimson (usually blood) stain sun-dried backdrops as impossibly chiseled warriors fight long past their dying breath. That's 300 in a nutshell, though Snyder's tight epic additionally bathes in every tired cliché of the warrior genre, yet somehow makes it all seem fresh.

Attila Review

It's been rumored in some history books that Attila the Hun died of an exploding blood clot while in the throes of sexual ecstasy -- what a way to go, huh?

Unfortunately, that's a scene you won't find in the USA Network's made-for-television Attila, the latest attempt to cash in on the success of Gladiator. A boy becomes a warrior who becomes a king powerful enough to challenge an empire. Are you not entertained?

The Phantom Of The Opera (2004) Review

Criticism toward Joel Schumacher's attempted enactment of Andrew Lloyd Webber's cherished stage musical The Phantom of the Opera likely will fall on deaf ears. If you love the source material (I don't), the chances are high you'll thoroughly enjoy the latest film to pay tribute, even though Schumacher is functionally talentless.

Schumacher and his financial backers certainly spare no expense, though the bulk of their budget apparently went to candles. Their Phantom (the not-so-hideously-disfigured Gerard Butler) hides beneath opulent and gaudy-yet-dimly-lit theatrical set pieces that turn the normally regal Opera Populaire into the west wing of the Moulin Rogue. The Phantom's water-logged lair resembles exactly what it is - a poorly constructed, artificial set dropped into the corner of a vast soundstage. Hire the man who put nipples on the Bat suit, and you're going to get what you pay for. The masquerade ball, which occurs late in the story, starts to explore methods of filling the artistic canvas, but by then, it's too little, too late.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom Of The Opera Review


Andrew Lloyd Webber's musicals are garish, puerile melodramas with all the elegance and sincerity of a Super Bowl halftime show -- and his brash, brassy songs have the depth and nuance of action-movie explosions.

Director Joel Schumacher was responsible for one of the most tawdry, terribly cliché-riddled action-movie bombs in Hollywood history -- 1997's "Batman and Robin."

When this pair teamed up to bring Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" to the big screen, it was a match made in hell.
