After turning up in 2016 with South African western, Five Fingers For Marseilles, director Michael Matthews returns with Love and Monsters with Dylan O’Brien and Jessica Henwick. Paramount Pictures is rolling out the film to home theaters beginning October 16.
Cameras will roll this summer in New Orleans, Louisiana, sitting Homefront (2013) helmer Gary Fleder in the director’s chair. Executive producer and Point Break (1991) scribe W. Peter Iliff penned the script with Avi Lerner (The Expendables), Natalie Burn (The Expendables 3) and Rob Van Norden (Olympus Has Fallen) producing, and Jeffrey Greenberg, Jonathan Yunger and Doug Urbanski also executive producing.
While I myself haven’t been hugely familiar with James Dashner’s books and as saturated as some PG-13 actioners tend to leave me feeling from time to time, the Maze Runner trilogy gets my respect. The first two films were very pretty enjoyable on top of terrific cast performances with some stimulating action and director Wes Ball’s third and final offering, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, looks to be no different whilst taking the saga further to its rightful end.
YA novel action adventure comes full circle next year on January 26 with 20th Century Fox’s new release, Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Wes Ball returns to the helm for the latest ensemble cast reprisal led by American Assassin star Dylan O’Bryan who shepherds our heroes on screen based on author James Dashner’s dystopian sci-fi novels.
Michael Cuesta’s new movie, American Assassin, is ready to flesh out more of its A-game this week in a brand new red-band trailer from CBS Films. Front and center is actor Dylan O’Brien starring as the on-screen iteration of popular literary protagonist, Mitch Rapp, a CIA black ops recruit who sets out to take matters in his own hands, training in record excel and killing as many terrorists as possible in the wake of a deadly attack that saw his girlfriend as collateral.
Joining O’Brien are actress Sanaa Lathan as CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy, and Shiva Negar as the lethal Turkish agent who aids Rapp on his mission, and actor Michael Keaton who plays Rapp’s handler, Cold War veteran Stan Hurley who doles out some cold, hard hand-to-hand advice in more ways than one in this latest trailer. The villain, of course, is played by Taylor Kitsch who gets named as “The Ghost” – an apparent yesteryear pupil of Hurley’s who has since applied his own training for some clearly notorious means.
The new restricted trailer is a great package for this title almost summing it up a battle between ‘bests of the bests’, priming what looks to be an exciting thriller ahead of its September 15 release. Check it out below!
AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
