Viggo Mortensen brings gravitas to The Two Faces of January trailer

Viggo Mortensen inherits a role like a few actors do. Sometimes he'll go a little method (a la Daniel Day Lewis) but I have no complaints. Even the most run-of-the-mill flicks (HIDALGO) command some attention due to his acting prowess. The latest of his films, THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY, looks to feature a love triangle and some crime to link them all together. Check it out:...

Four new clips from 47 Ronin showcase a whole bunch of supernatural samurai action

When the trailer for 47 RONIN first dropped, I was somewhat disappointed to see the overabundance of CGI on display. The story and cast seemed like they would make for a really cool action movie that somehow turned into a visual replica of THE HOBBIT set in feudal Japan. I wrote the movie off at that point and haven't looked back. But, now some clips have been released for the...
