Jessica Lange Joins Mark Wahlberg In Remake Of The Gambler
We can expect this remake to be pretty big, as Lange joins box office champion Mark Whalberg as his mother. It will be directed by Rupert Wyatt, who rocked the box office himself with another sorta-remake, 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Lone Survivor Trailer: Bullets And Brotherhood With The SEAL Team 10
As you can tell from the pull-quotes featured in this trailer, from the likes of Bill Simmons and Peter Travers, The Lone Survivor isn't your average war movie, and may serve as a kind of redemption for both its director and one of its stars. No, I don't mean Mark Wahlberg-- he made a masterpiece this year already, remember?-- but Taylor Kitsch, who with director Peter Berg brought upon the world last year's Battleship.

Mark Wahlberg May Be A Convincing College Professor In Rupert Wyatt's The Gambler Remake
With the rumors about him directing Star Trek 3 so strong that even J.J. Abrams has been forced to address them, Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt may be lining up a very different, much more earthbound project. According to The Wrap he's in negotiations to direct The Gambler, a Paramount remake of the 1974 drama, with Mark Wahlberg also in line to take on the role that was originally played by James Caan

Michael Bay Conquers An Alien Pyramid In Transformers 4 Set Photo
What the hell is that thing on which Bay and his cast are posing? It looks alien in nature. At the same time, it could be a spike on the shoulder or back of a massive Transformer. We have no idea, and likely won't know until we see a trailer for the sequel.
Seth McFarlane Reveals A Release Date For Ted 2
It’ll be rather exciting to see if Ted 2 can possibly top the first film’s box office numbers, since it absolutely blew up both domestically and internationally, raking in over $571 million worldwide by the end of its theatrical run. Those kinds of number are usually earned by sequels and comic book adaptations, not R-rated comedies.
Mark Wahlberg Defends Johnny Depp, Says Blockbusters Are Over-Scrutinized
"First and foremost, the media is targeting all these movies.

2 Guns Overtakes The Wolverine For #1 At Friday Box Office
2 Guns, a movie that seems completely indistinguishable from a million other mismatched buddy cop movies, has at least convinced a solid number of moviegoers that it's something worth seeing. According to early numbers at Deadline the Mark Wahlberg-Denzel Washington vehicle brought in $9.8 million on Friday, good enough for first place at that day's box office and for the weekend in general, which should have it bringing in around $27 million
Mark Wahlberg's Navy SEAL Drama Lone Survivor Gets New Poster And Action-Packed Trailer
A bearded and chubby Mark Wahlberg stars as the soldier/author Luttrell, and he’s joined by an all-star squad that also includes Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Alexander Ludwig and Eric Bana.

2 Guns Red-Band Trailer: Wait, This Movie Is Actually Funny?
Last night Mark Wahlberg showed up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and surprised the hell out of me by talking up the comedy of 2 Guns. Wahlberg had the biggest hit of his career last summer with Ted, and he was showing up on a comedian-friendly late night show, so the topic made sense, but nothing I had seen from 2 Guns suggested the slightest possibility of being funny. Now here comes this red-band trailer, via IGN, which actually backs Wahlberg up

Peter Berg Keeps Recovering Perfectly From Battleship, Takes On American Desperado
For years Peter Berg had a fairly strong reputation as a director who took on tough-guy projects in style. He directed the Friday Night Lights movie and eventually directed the TV show, revealing the soul behind all those musclebound high school linebackers. He directed the 2003 crime caper The Rundown, which revealed the greatness of The Rock as a movie star long before most of us noticed
