Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren Take The Odd Contract In 'Red' Trailer

Robert Schwentke's film adaptation of the Warren Ellis graphic novel Red looks like The Losers recast for a CBS audience. It stars Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich (going full-Nugent), and Mary-Louise Parker as former CIA assassins forced into retirement. But old habits die hard and the boredom of retired life sets in, causing them to venture out on their own to murder-for-hire. And then when their old bosses try to have them killed, they reunite to take the fight to the CIA's front door. Why is the CIA always trying to kill its former employees? That hardly happens with any other profession. Better off safe than sorry though. That's why I've been systematically eliminating the customers from my boyhood paper route. That, and because of their ethnicities. HELEN MIRREN POPS A CAP AFTER THE JUMP...

Helen Mirren Shows Off the Merchandise in 'Love Ranch' Trailer

Pick a whore, any whore! The trailer for Taylor Hackford's Love Ranch has scratched, tickled, and hit the web. In it, Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci portray the real life couple that started the first legal brothel in Nevada. Needless to say, there are prostitutes in this film, gentlemen, and you better believe at some point Pesci teaches them some respect. Will it be Gina Gershon, Bai Ling, Scout Taylor-Compton, or Taryn Manning who is subject to the little man's wrath? Considering Manning has already done the whole "lady of the night thing" before in Hustle & Flow she's probably the most resilient. But don't get too cocky, Taryn. Pesci lays down pimp law a lot harder than Terrence Howard. I have the bruises to prove it. Check out the trailer after the jump. Love Ranch propositions its way into theaters June 30.


'Red 2' Trailer: I'm Getting Too Old For This Schtick

At this point they should cast Betty White and call it a day. I'm not sure how it came to fruition but here's a trailer for Red 2 -- the follow up to Red, a movie that exists. All of your favorite things about the original are back: John Malkovich pretends to be insane, Bruce Willis throws bad guys through furniture, and Helen Mirren acts like Jason Statham. Now, with the added elderly star power of Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones (mid-40's = Hollywood elderly) and the karate of Byung-hun Lee, who has aged incredibly well. But back to Mirren, can we get her to star in a straight-up action vehicle without any winks? She'd be great as Jason Bourne.


50 Cent And Bruce Willis Are In A Movie Together (For Some Reason)

I can't tell you what rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is doing sharing the screen with famous and reasonably talented actor Bruce Willis, but I know this: it ain't dancin'. Don't look at me for answers, I'm just a reporter. That's right, I can't tell you what rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is doing sharing the screen with famous and reasonably talented actor Bruce Willis. It looks like acting, but that's not really sufficient explanation, is it? Well, there aren't many more clues in the trailer to the new crime thriller Setup. There's a heist, I think, and there's Ryan Phillippe, and it's all being directed/written by a stunt coordinator. It doesn't really add up, but here it is. It's got a lot of the staples of a Bruce Willis OR 50 Cent movie: people getting shot, things being stolen, bad guys riding in the back of limos and saying vague and evil things, and someone possibly being a ghost. Who knows, it might even be good! It most likely will not, but stranger things have happened. You know, like that time 50 Cent lost all that weight for a movie that looks like it was shot on a flip phone. (Vulture)


Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel, And Bruce Willis Get Together To 'Rock The Kasbah'

Whatever the hell that means. It's hard to tell what kind of film Rock the Kasbah is going to be from its trailer. But that probably won't stop you from seeing the likes of Bill Murray sing Deep Purple to a group of Afghan residents. Wouldn't you agree? The premise of the film revolves around a manager (Murray) taking his singer (Deschanel) to do a USO show in Afghanistan, when she leaves him without a wallet or passport. He wanders around Afghanistan, as US music managers so often due, until he finds a girl that needs to get to Kabul to sing. It's wacky, it's probably heartfelt, and it even has Danny McBride.


Bruce Willis And Some Guy Team Up In 'A Good Day To Die Hard' Teaser

What if 007 went through the Plainfield NJ school system? While there is still some debate about which day would be the best to Die Hard (I say Thursday, because then you still have the entire weekend), we do know which day would be a good one for Die Harding. To find out, watch this teaser trailer for A Good Day To Die-Hard. It chronicles John McClane and his son as they go global and take on Russian terrorists. No offense to John McClane but if he were my dad, we wouldn't hang out much. Just safer that way.


You'll Probably Want To Watch This 'Red Tails' Trailer

Did George Lucas make a good movie? He made an awesome trailer at the very least. The trailer for the  George Lucas-produced Red Tails opens with World War II fighter pilots getting shredded. Which looks pretty spectacular, I have to say. That's where Terrence Howard and the Tuskegee Airmen come in. The legendary group of African-American combat pilots fight through red tape in order to escort bombers to their targets. The real star of the trailer are the visual effects, but it seems like they did the Airmen's story justice as well. It's directed by Anthony Hamilton (The Wire, Treme) and stars Howard, NeYo, Andre Royo, Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Bryan Cranston, and Method Man to name a few. If only they had cast Chris Rock to humorously point out the different ways in which white people and black people fly.


Bruce Jenner Is So Lonely In 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians Without The Kardashians'

This version is far more engaging. If you groan and roll your eyes every time the Kardashians are on your TV, now you can finally enjoy Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Well, enjoy it more than its original state. By deleting Kim and her immediate family from the show, Bruce Jenner is permitted to wander around and converse with the open air. To be fair, the actual show probably has more than enough B-roll of that to warrant a spin-off.
