Blood Ties is an epic 70′s crime drama starring Clive Owen and Billy Crudup as two brothers on either side of the law, who face off over organized crime in Brooklyn.

David O. Russell is an actor’s director. Just take a look at his current film American Hustle. The cast includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. It’s huge. Why? Because most of the time, his films do very well at the box office and his actors get critically recognized. Usually resulting in an award or two. His next film, however, might have A-listers already attached. It’s being reported that Russell will write and direct Legacy of Secrets for Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.

Well, it’s a week before Todd Phillips‘ The Hangover Part III hits theaters. And rule of thumb dictates that this is the time to release a red band trailer, to remind audiences everywhere of just how ridiculously funny the movie will be.

Bradly Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, John Goodman and Melissa McCarthy star. The Hangover Part III hits theaters next week, May 23, 2013. Check out the red band trailer below.
Inherent Vice, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s upcoming film, is filling out quite nicely. Just recently, Benicio Del Toro and OwenWilson joined Joaquin Phoenix in the cast. And now, it’s being reported that Reese Witherspoon will take a role. Based on Thomas Pynchon‘s novel of the same name, the story follows the inept, pot-smoking private detective Doc Sportello (Phoenix) who is hired by his ex-girlfriend to investigate the disappearance of her wealthy lover.
James Franco‘s turn from acting to actor/director is a bold one. His most recent might be his boldest. Based on William Faulkner‘s classic novel, As I Lay Dying charts a family’s attempt to transport the body of its late matriarch to her preferred burial place, miles away. To put it simply, it doesn’t go well. James Franco wrote the script, directed and stars in the film, which is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. As I Lay Dying also stars Logan Marshall-Green, Danny McBride, Tim BlakeNelson, Ahna O’Reilly, Beth Grant, and Jesse Heiman. Check out the trailer below.
Marvel has officially begun Phase Two with the recent release of Iron Man 3. So naturally, they’ll continue marketing the the crap out it, which includes the upcoming NBC series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Led by Joss Whedon himself, the new Avengers-based television series certainly has the pedigree, with Clark Gregg‘s Agent Coulson at the helm leading the super-spy organization’s members week-to-week. The show also features Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge and Chloe Bennet. Check out the trailer below.
Rumors of the 24 movie have been circulating for years. At some point, it was happening, but then it turned into the TV movie that acted as a tie-in to the last season. As a die-hard 24 fan (not kidding, I have a Jack Bauer messenger bag), I was beginning to wonder if I was ever going to see my idol ever again. I didn’t care if it was on the big screen of the on TV. Often times, however, the best solution turns out to be the easiest. Fox is planning on bringing the man who once knocked out Walker Texas Ranger and lived to tell about it. Jack Bauer will return as the world’s preeminent anti-terrorist, water-boarding machine in 24: Live Another Day.
