The Devil's Advocate is being adapted as a television series at NBC

I don't know about you, but I loved THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE. Despite Keanu Reeves awful accent, Taylor Hackford 's horror/legal thriller gave us one of the last great performances from Al Pacino who chews each scene as the perfect big screen Satan.

The trailer for Jason Statham's Parker with Michael Chiklis and Jennifer Lopez is surprisingly cool

Something very strange happened while watching the trailer for director Taylor Hackford's PARKER; I suddenly had the desire to see a Jason Statham movie in the theater.  Sounds crazy, right?  To be fair, Statham is great to watch, but it's a rarity anymore that I'd rush out to see him on the big screen.  However, with PARKER, you have a bang-up cast and a well-versed director spearheading...
