SON OF A GUN: First Trailer For The Gritty Ewan McGregor Heist Picture Looks Flat Out Fantastic

Given the early success of Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave it's really somewhat surprising that star Ewan McGregor has largely stayed away from like minded criminal fare through his career. There have been blips here and there, sure, but it's a...

AnarchyVision: Jason Gorber Talks AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, LONE SURVIVOR And Woody

Talking this week about John Wells' August: Osage County, a film with a tour-de-force cast but a (slightly) watered down take on the usual Tracey Letts madness. The box office winner this week was Peter "Battleship" Berg's Lone Survivor, a...
