Denzel Washington keeps the 'walk away from an explosion' trope alive

hugh-jackman

If an actor has played the hero or villain in an action film in the last few decades, there’s a good chance he or she walked away from an explosion and looked cool while doing it. There’s no shortage of examples—more than enough for Andy Samberg and his Lonely Island bandmates to make a music video about it—and many actors have pulled off the impressive and unrealistic feat multiple times.

Among the repeat walkers-away are Denzel Washington, who even ignored an explosion in the poster for Man on Fire. Washington will look to perfect his explosion walk (walksplosion?) again in The Equalizer, and in honor of the film’s release on Sept. 26, The Guardian has asked readers to prove their knowledge of cool guys not looking at explosions.

The Guardian has put together a quiz pulling from some of the most famous examples—and a few more obscure ones for younger moviegoers—of the time-honored movie trope. It’s best to take the quiz while listening to Samberg’s vocals and J.J. Abrams’ smooth keyboard solo for a little inspiration. READ FULL STORY

Oscar Isaac talks Patricia Highsmith thriller and 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

Oscar Isaac is having a pretty good year. The Juilliard-trained actor has been on a bit of a roll since being cast as the lead in Inside Llewyn Davis; the Coen brothers’ ’60s folk noir may not have gotten the awards traction that could have made Isaac’s breakout a truly golden ride, but it’s not like the lack of an Oscar nomination dimmed his prospects either. Not only did he score a choice role opposite Jessica Chastain in director J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which recently received an awards-season friendly 2014 release datehe was also cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. But you already knew that one.

In his latest, an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1964 novel The Two Faces of January, Isaac plays Rydal, a clean-shaven, fedora-sporting American abroad who’s been leading the life of a quiet, small time scam artist in Greece till he takes up with a beguiling American couple played by Kirsten Dunst (Colette) and Viggo Mortensen (Chester). When a symbol of Chester’s less-than-honest past pays him an unexpected visit, a violent incident tethers the three travelers for the remainder of the slow-burning thriller, directed and adapted by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove).

“He didn’t look, necessarily, like the part was described in the book, but he can do anything. He has this thing that my favorite kind of actors have in that they’re kind of edgy and dangerous, but he has this innocence as well,” said Amini, who met Isaac on Drive, which he wrote the screenplay for. “You can feel it when he’s flirting with Kirsten, and he looks over and sees Viggo and feels guilty and tries to include him in the conversation. He can switch moods so quickly. I don’t know many actors who can go toe-to-toe with Viggo.”

EW spoke to Isaac about The Two Faces of January (available now on VOD and in select theaters on Sept. 26), the game-changing moments of his career and even a bit about Star Wars, which he’s currently filming in London.

Bryan Singer officially signs on to direct 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

Director Bryan Singer will officially return to the X-Men franchise. EW has confirmed that Singer, who directed X-Men, X2, and this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, has just closed a deal to direct the latest installment in the Marvel mutant series, X-Men: Apocalypse. It had been unclear whether or not this would be the case after Singer was accused in April of sexual abuse by former actor Michael Egan; Egan eventually dropped his suit in late August.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016 and Singer told EW in the spring that it would follow younger versions of Xavier (James McAvoy), Erik (Michael Fassbender), and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), and perhaps the additions of Nightcrawler and Gambit (Channing Tatum has been reportedly set as the Cajun hero). Said Singer, “I’m excited because I want to start introducing familiar characters at different ages and also explore the ‘80s.”

Channing Tatum offers fans a chance to appear in 'Magic Mike XXL'

While Magic Mike XXL‘s cast has grown over the last several weeks,there’s still the matter of filling the film with extras. Set to revolve around a few stripper conventions, XXL will include plenty of risqué shows that will require live audiences. And star Channing Tatum is giving one fan a chance to see his and his costars stripping prowess live.

Tatum announced on his Facebook page on Sept. 19 that fans can enter a contest in the hopes of winning a visit to the set and a role as an extra during one of the film’s “crazy” performances. Entrants need to create a photo or video showcasing their love for Magic Mike and why they would want to be in the film.

All of the rules can be found at the contest’s official site, and the contest is open until 12:00 PT on Sept. 29. Tatum promises that the sequel’s dance numbers are “crazy this time,” which makes sense considering stripper conventions are presumably not very tame gatherings.
