Clive Owen Plays MI5 Agent in 'Shadow Dancer'

clive owen shadow dancer

British actor Clive Owen admits he was exhausted after playing literary lion Ernest Hemingway in the HBO movie "Hemingway & Gellhorn." However, he said he put off a much-needed break after it was done because the Northern Ireland-set thriller "Shadow Dancer" was simply too good a project to pass up. "I didn't do that much research [for 'Shadow Dancer'] because I was finishing the Hemingway project I did and I was very tired," the 48-year-old actor told United Press International in New York recently. "I wasn't really going to work and then I was sent the script and because James Marsh's name came with it and I loved 'Man on Wire,' I was... more

Movie Review: 'The Purge'

the purge movie

LOS ANGELES - Characters are frequently urged to "release the beast" in "The Purge," a high-concept home-invasion shocker set in a future where one night a year, all crime is legal. But what should be a clammy exercise in claustrophobic, queasy tension becomes, in the hands of writer/director James DeMonaco, an underpowered compendium of over-familiar scare tactics and sledgehammer-subtle social satire. The intriguingly nightmarish premise may well rustle up a decent opening weekend for a picture that comes with the imprimatur of producer Michael Bay before the lukewarm word of mouth hastens its trip to DVD and VOD. The hostiles-in-the-ho... more

Movie Review: 'The Internship'

the internship movie

There are really three movie stars headlining "The Internship": Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Google. Actually, it's a surprise Google doesn't get top billing over the humans, so adoringly is the company displayed. But if you can get past this Mother of All Product Placements, you'll likely find yourself chuckling a lot during this silly but warm-hearted film, directed by Shawn Levy. Sure, it could be shorter, the script less predictable, the action (much) more believable. But hey, this is Vaughn and Wilson, and if their onscreen banter doesn't quite live up to the riotous 2005 "Wedding Crashers," it's still pretty darned funny. These t... more

WASHINGTON - The Newseum in Washington is poking some fun at TV anchors with a new exhibit about the 2004 comedy "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" starring Will Ferrell. The Newseum announced plans Tuesday for "Anchorman: The Exhibit" to be created with Paramount Pictures. It's scheduled to open Nov. 14 with props, costumes and footage from the film, including Burgundy's jazz flute and a mock anchor desk. The exhibit would open just before the release of the sequel "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" in December. Newseum Vice President of Exhibits Cathy Trost says news anchors represent the authority of TV news but also have been ... more

Russia Wants Seagal to Be Face of Weapons Industry

MOSCOW - Russia is looking at Steven Seagal to be the face of its weapons industry as it guns for first place on the world arms market. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said the action movie star may head up an international marketing campaign to promote the Degtarev arms plant, Russian news agencies reported. He accompanied Seagal on a visit there Tuesday. "You're ready to fight American (manufacturers) with your teeth and your intellect, and if Americans are prepared to promote and support you, that says we're learning new ways to work on corporate warfare markets," Rogozin said. Russian officials are big fans of Seagal, who met P... more
