Watch Michael B. Jordan grapple with his mission in first-look teaser of 'Without Remorse'

No Comments

Marvel Studios(LOS ANGELES) — Michael B. Jordan has unveiled a short teaser for his upcoming action drama Without Remorse.

The film, based on the Tom Clancy novel, follows Jordan as John Clark, aka John Terrence Kelly, a former Navy SEAL who goes to work for the CIA.

Black Panther star Jordan stars alongside Queen and Slim star Jodie Turner-Smith, who will play Karen Greer, the daughter of CIA Deputy Director James Greer, who’s a character in many of Clancy’s Jack Ryan novels and movies.

“Something ain’t adding up,” Jordan ponders to himself in the promo, where he’s dressed in his Navy SEAL fatigues. “I want to get some answers.”

As previously reported, Without Remorse will detail the backstory of how John Clark came to work for the CIA.  The character has appeared in 17 Tom Clancy novels, and Paramount intends to build a franchise around Jordan’s portrayal of Clark. This is the first time that the character will be played by an black actor. Willem Dafoe and Liev Schreiber previously played the character in the Jack Ryan films Clear and Present Danger and The Sum of All Fears, respectively.

Jordan is also expected to star in the adaptation of the Clancy novel Rainbow Six, with production scheduled for this year. 

Without Remorse, also starring Jamie Bell, Luke Mitchell, Jacob Scipio, Cam Gigandet and Brett Gelman, comes to theaters in 2020.

Check out a sneak peek of the latest adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Emma'

No Comments

Focus Features(LOS ANGELES) — Focus Features has released a teaser of director Autumn de Wilde’s take on Jane Austen’s classic comedy Emma.

And a tease it is.  The period comedy about rich, restless Emma Woodhouse — this time played by Anya Taylor-Joy — is shown in a series of quick cuts, showing off some stunning costumes and settings and the film’s impressive cast, including Bill Nighy, Mia Goth, Miranda Hart, Rupert Graves, and Johnny Flynn.

First published in 1815, Austen’s coming of age story has been adapted several times, the most recent being a BBC miniseries serial in 2009 starring Romola Garai in the title role. 

In 1996, Gwyneth Paltrow played the lead role in a big screen bow of the film, while actual British person Kate Beckinsale did so in a made-for-TV movie a year later. 

This version of Emma premieres in theaters February 21, 2020.

Jamie Foxx parties hard, tips harder in NYC

No Comments

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — For a guy who cut his teeth in the entertainment industry throwing get-togethers for the likes of P. Diddy and other stars, it should be no surprise that Jamie Foxx knows how to have a good time.

Page Six reports he did just that Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning in New York City. The Oscar-winning actor and musician started the night with a performance at a benefit for the Prostate Cancer Foundation, entertaining a well-heeled crowd that reportedly included music mogul David Geffen, producer David Foster and his wife, singer Katharine McPhee.

After killing it there, Foxx reportedly left with “an entourage of 30 friends” and headed south, to the Brooklyn Chop House. He performed there, too — apparently impromptu — and stayed long after closing time, but not before leaving a $2,000 tip when he departed at 5 a.m.

Boo! Humbug! Check out FX's haunting take on 'A Christmas Carol'

No Comments

FX/BBC(LOS ANGELES) — From the network that’s brought you American Horror Story and other spooky tales, perhaps it’s not surprising that FX’s take on A Christmas Carol really plays up the beloved classic’s full title: “…Being a Ghost Story of Christmas.”

The BBC co-produced project boasts a stellar cast: Guy Pearce plays Ebenezer Scrooge; Andy Serkis is the Ghost of Christmas Past; Jason Flemyng is the Ghost of Christmas Future; Charlotte Riley plays the Ghost of Christmas Present, Rocket Man‘s Stephen Graham plays Jacob Marley, Joe Alwyn plays Bob Cratchit, and Vinette Robinson his wife Mary.

The sneak peek leans into the frights, with Marley and Scrooge cursed to be tormented by ghosts and the sins of their past…and Scrooge’s present. 

The film premieres December 19 at 7:30 pm Eastern on FX, and replays on December 22 at 7:30pm Eastern; December 24 at 8 p.m. and December 25 at 4 p.m.
