Escape Plan Header

A trailer has a tendency to reveal either the best parts of the film or too much of it. So after watching this first trailer for Escape Plan, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, there is a sense that it’s both of that.

The film is about two prisoners who try to break out of the world’s most inescapable prison. One prisoner actually makes a living on breaking out of prison (Stallone) and the other an aged criminal who will help him break out (Schwarzenegger).

While the premise sounds like the basis of a good old fashioned action movie, this trailer just gives too much of the plot away. Check it out below.

Larry David

When it was announced that Superbad‘s Greg Mottola would be directing Larry David‘s improv comedy, the film’s only cast members were Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton. Now we are learning that the film has a new title, and that the cast has grown immensely.

THR reports that the comedy now titled, Clear History, will center on a marketing executive (David) who makes the terrible decision of getting into a petty argument with his boss and abruptly quits his job at a new electric car company. Ten years later he realizes the mistake he made when he sees the same company he worked for is now worth billions, so he changes his name and his reputation and rewards himself by purchasing a summer cottage on a private island. However, he bumps into the same boss he quit working for and from there he decides he wants to get revenge.

The Tomb Header

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are reuniting again for The Expendables 2, but if you’re worried that you’ll never get to see them share the same screen, then it’s time to put that aside, because they’ll be back for The Tomb. The film features Stallone as a man who designs heavily fortified prisons, only to be be wrongly put in one of his own. Schwarzenegger, a member of the prison, will help Stallone’s character bail out. The Mikael HÃ¥fström-directed film also stars Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Vinnie Jones, Amy Ryan, and 50 Cent. So before you watch The Expendables 2 this weekend, be sure to check out the first photo from The Tomb. Click below to see a full version of the photo.

There’s not a whole lot to get into about the photo itself, it is after all a teaser photo. Just Schwarzenegger and Stallone just hanging around in a prison. But the synopsis below gives some added anticipation to The Tomb, which does not have a release date at this time.

Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Production for Mikael HÃ¥fström‘s The Tomb, starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, has begun. Stallone stars as Ray Breslin, the world’s foremost authority on structural security. Breslin is framed and imprisoned in a prison of his own design, and together with fellow inmate (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) must find out how to break out. The film also stars Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Jim Caviezel, Amy Ryan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, and new addition Sam Neill.

Caviezel plays Hobbes, the warden of the Tomb, and Jones will play as Drake, the lead guard of the maximum-security prison. D’Onofrio plays Lester Clark, Breslin’s business partner and CEO of B&C Security, their independent security company hired by the Federal Bureau of Prisons to test the integrity of their maximum-security facilities nationwide. Ryan plays Abigail Ross, jack-of-all trades and one of Beslin’s closest confidants at B&C Security. Neil is cast as Dr. Emil Kaikev, the prison doctor embedded within the Tomb, who is sympathetic to Breslin’s plight.

Movie Review: Win Win

Win WinWin Win
Directed by Tom McCarthy
Starring: Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Bobby Cannavale, Jeffrey Tambor, Burt Young, Melanie Lynskey, Alex Shaffer
Release: March 18, 2011

Reciprocity is what we find in all of director Tom McCarthy‘s films and very rarely found in others’ films. He is a filmmaker who recognizes and spotlights individuals who are of two molds: caretakers and people who need taken care of. What defines a film by McCarthy, though, is his ability to make a character both caretaker and one who needs to be taken care of. His two previous films, The Station Agent and The Visitor, displayed individuals who were emotionally destroyed and in shameful situations. But yet there still remained in them a spark of life that has the ability to make the necessary preparations for getting themselves and others whose lives have been stifling out of a grievous situation. Win Win is no different. The film doesn’t see the human spirit as triumphant, and while that may sound bleak it is the foundation in which McCarthy constructs his films on. He evaluates his characters in a burdensome state only to find in them qualities that may allow them to rise against adversity.

Win Win, a comedy-drama that takes into consideration the fragility of the human spirit, is a small film with, sad to say, small ambitions. It plays it safe with the material it has while room for expansion is evident and much encouraged. McCarthy doesn’t magnify his material but rather keeps it subdued while we want more emotion, especially when we have actors capable of exploiting their internal and external frustrations.
