A first trailer has been released for action thriller Safe House, in which a not-so-cuddly Denzel Washington goes on the rampage as rogue CIA assassin Tobin Frost.
Brought in to the titular safe house for questioning (read torture) by the agency, he finds himself in the charge of Ryan Reynolds’ rookie agent, although just who is in charge of the situation is up for debate.
Eco-terrorism drama The East looks to be collecting some of the hottest young stars in Hollywood for its leading roles. With Brit Marling already in the bag, Heat Vision reports that Alexander Skarsgård is in talks to take the male lead.
Hitman Jay (Neil Maskell)hasn’t lifted a trigger finger in eight months. Money’s low, his wife’s (MyAnna Buring) spirits are lower.
Then best buddy/co-killer Gal (Michael Smiley) comes round for a roast and a chat in the basement. He’s been offered a lucrative assignment: kill some people, on a list.
Moral salve? They’re bad people, probably. Besides, it’s time Jay “got back on the horse.”
Anyone who saw jobbing TV director Ben Wheatley’s 2009 feature debut Down Terrace - a galvanising mix of kitchen sink, soap, crime drama, Shakespearean tragedy and piss-taking comedy shot in eight days for £6,000 - will go into his slippery sophomore effort with a toehold on what to expect.
Just don’t be surprised if that toe is then hacked off and sent to you in the mail…
Based on the true story of serial killer John Bunting, who along with coerced associates, murdered 12 people in South Australia between 1992 and 1999.
Known as the ‘Bodies in the Barrels’ murders, Bunting and his associates killed victims at various locations over South Australia, storing them in barrels filled with hydrochloric acid.
In early 1999, Bunting moved the barrels to a disused bank vault in Snowtown, a small quiet town 145km outside Adelaide.
Attracting the attention of police, the vault was raided, and shortly after the horrific discovery of 8 bodies in 6 barrels in Snowtown became one of Australia’s worst serial murder cases in history.
Taking the point of view of young, impressionable Bunting associate Jamie Vlassakis, who later turned star witness for the prosecution, the film focuses on several of the murders, as Bunting charms and intimidates his way into the lives of future associates, and future victims.
- This looks amazing! Interviewing the director on Tuesday! Dan :)
