'RED 2' trailer: Yes, Helen Mirren kicking ass still looks awesome -- VIDEO

A glibly violent lark about retired government secret agents — played by, among others, Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren — who find themselves thrust back on the job, the first RED had a great deal of fun staging action sequences with “older” actors at the center of them. Which is to say, they gave Helen Mirren a giant machine gun, and it was kinda amazing.

The sequel has a new director (GalaxyQuest‘s Dean Parisot), the same screenwriters (Jon and Erich Hoeber, based loosely on the graphic novel by Warren Ellis), and, as the new trailer makes clear, the same basic plot: Bruce Willis is retired (this time with his younger, thrill-seeking girlfriend played by Mary-Louise Parker), and finds himself the target of another seeming conspiracy to kill him. This time, it appears to involve Catherine Zeta-Jones (as an old flame) and Anthony Hopkins (as, well, the trailer barely features him, but we know he’s a missing Cold War scientist). And, yet again, Helen Mirren looks awesome kicking ass.

A Brother Goes it Alone: Allen Hughes on directing his first solo feature, 'Broken City'

Twin-brother directors Albert and Allen Hughes have been making movies together ever since their mother bought them a video camera when they were 12 years old. For as long as they can remember, they split everything down the middle: “My mom raised us as communists in the best sense of the word,” says Allen Hughes, 40. “We had the same amount of Kool-Aid, the same number of Cheerios.” But being part of a directing team is like being in a band; no matter how much success you may have together – and over the past two decades, the Hughes brothers have had plenty, from their breakout 1993 debut Menace II Society to their 2001 thriller From Hell to their 2010 postapocalyptic action film The Book of Eli – there comes a time when you feel the itch to go solo. “As you get older, you get on different pages,” says Allen, who acknowledges that working with Albert had its stormy moments. “Just ask Fleetwood Mac about that.”

'Side Effects' trailer: Steven Soderbergh takes on love and other drugs

Could this moody, pulpy thriller about a depressed woman (Rooney Mara) and her possibly murder-inducing anxiety medication be the last feature Steven Soderbergh ever directs? Possibly — which is why it’s fitting that Side Effects, formerly known as Bitter Pill, functions sort of like a reunion film for Soderbergh vets. Look, it’s Contagion‘s Jude Law, Traffic‘s Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Channing Tatum — a.k.a. Magic Mike himself! (Bonus points: Tatum also starred in Soderbergh’s Haywire.) Too bad it seems like things aren’t going so well for any of their characters this time around.

'Lay the Favorite': Catherine Zeta-Jones circles Rebecca Hall -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Catherine Zeta-Jones is the kind of actress who can throw a dagger stare better than most, and she does — with her hair fluffed up, her cleavage bared like a trashy Amazon — as Tulip, a gambler’s wife, in this exclusive clip from Stephen Frears’ new film Lay the Favorite, co-starring Bruce Willis, Vince Vaughn, Joshua Jackson, and Rebecca Hall. The movie comes out on VOD Nov. 2, and in theaters Dec. 7.

The object of Zeta-Jones’ competitive evil eye? Hall (The Town), playing pretty and bright-eyed Las Vegas gal Beth, taken under the wing of Tulip’s gambler hubby Dink, played by Willis. “Hi, I’m Beth,” says Hall, innocently plunging out her hand for a handshake. “You’re Beth?” bemuses Zeta-Jones, circling her like a shark wearing lipstick. “Uh-huh,” says Hall, to which Zeta-Jones only replies with a one-word “Oh.”  READ FULL STORY

'Broken City' trailer: Russell Crowe 'owns' Mark Wahlberg as Kanye West's 'Power' booms

Kanye West’s raw tune “Power” takes on new, darker meaning in the new trailer for Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones’ upcoming New York City-set political thriller Broken City, out Jan. 18. There’s power, and then there’s POWER, the kind that wiggles into your soul and rips it apart.

“There are some wars you fight, and some wars you walk away from. This is the fighting kind,” boasts Wahlberg as an ex-NY cop hired by Crowe, an ever-smiling, scheming mayor, to track down the guy sleeping with his wife, played by buxom, beautiful Zeta-Jones. There are twists and turns, illicit photos and violent car chases, and Crowe snarling to Wahlberg “I own you” as the thumping beats of West’s song pound out the cry to war.

'Playing for Keeps' trailer: Gerard Butler gets adorable kids to yell 'wankers,' adorably

In Playing for Keeps, Gerard Butler plays a former pro soccer player who’s fallen out with the mother (Jessica Biel) of his young son and is trying to make good by coaching the young tyke’s soccer team. The new trailer for the film is clearly aiming for the “heartwarming family dramedy of the holiday season” slot, so it kinda ignores the fact that all those hot soccer moms start throwing themselves at Butler’s character. As hot soccer moms are wont to do.

'RED 2' gets greenlight, Catherine Zeta-Jones joining cast, including Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren

The geriatric gang is getting back together — and getting some new (i.e. young) blood. Summit Entertainment announced today that Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, and Mary-Louise Parker have all signed on for RED 2, a sequel to the studio’s modest 2010 hit. (It grossed $199 million worldwide according to Box Office Mojo.)

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-Hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) have joined the cast, and Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) will take over directing reins from the first film’s director, Robert Schwentke. (SPOILER ALERT: RED co-star Morgan Freeman isn’t returning due to the vexing fact that his character died in the first film.) Screenwriters Erich and Jon Hoeber are officially returning for the second installment; they began penning the script last year.

As is often the case with franchise sequels, RED 2 will take place largely in Europe. It’s set for release on Aug. 2, 2013.
