Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]

What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.

Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and

Patrick Wilson On What Drew Him To Join Aquaman

While doing promo for his upcoming project The Hollow Point, Patrick Wilson was a guest on ABC Radio's Gma After Hours and spoke about why he decided to the play Aquaman’s villainous half-brother, Orm – a.k.a. Ocean Master in the upcoming DC Film.

“What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling, I guess, for Aquaman. Until now. And for me, of course, I’m completely biased with James Wan, who I’ve done four films with — knowing that he’s at the helm and knowing what he … can do and what he will do, I’ll do anything with him.”

Wilson added:

“I think the lure of Aquaman [is] because he hasn’t been overexposed on screen. And I don’t know Jason (Momoa) — I can’t wait to meet him. I was a huge fan even from the first episode of Game of Thrones,

Patrick Wilson excited to work with James Wan and Jason Momoa on Aquaman

Earlier this week, Watchmen actor Patrick Wilson was cast as Ocean Master – the half-brother of Arthur Curry – in the upcoming Aquaman solo film. His casting reunites him not only with the DC Extended Universe (he was the voice of the President of the United States in this year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice), but with The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 director James Wan, something he touched on in a new interview.

When talking to Wbt Radio about his new film The Hollow Point, he talked a bit about his excitement to work with Wan again:

“I’m completely biased with James Wan, who I’ve done four films with – knowing that he’s at the helm and knowing what he… can do and what he will do, I’ll do anything with him. What’s gonna be interesting is there hasn’t been the technology to back up the storytelling,

Border Thriller ‘The Hollow Point’ With Ian McShane & Patrick Wilson Is Tedious And Overcooked [Review]

There has been a renaissance of great B-movie westerns of late; this year gave us Ti West’s genre bender “In A Valley Of Violence,” and last year S. Craig Zahler‘s (side-splittingly?) unforgettable “Bone Tomahawk.” Similarly, the Southwest has served as the setting for a handful of timely border-related thrillers (“Sicario” being the best of them). It’s natural, then, that a film would come along and meld the two together: a modern-day smuggling drama hitched with the dusty small town, the greedy business tycoon, and the tired sheriff of the western.

As Ian McShane fans patiently await word on the rumored “Deadwood” movie, the actor will be giving them plenty to savor until that project (hopefully) arrives, including a role in the upcoming “American Gods.” But McShane devotees shouldn’t let the indie movie “The Hollow Point” slide off their radar as it serves up a gritty-looking thriller.

Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego (“Apollo 18,” “Open Grave“) and co-starring Patrick Wilson, John Leguizamo, James Belushi, and Lynn Collins, the story is set in the back roads of a border town, where a botched Mexican-cartel arms deal leaves several dead and a bag of money missing.

The Hollow Point Review [Monster Fest 2016]

Given all the political chatter about border control in this year’s *historic* Us presidential election, The Hollow Point stays savagely on-topic. Granted, most American citizens aren’t involved with ammo-running across country lines, but cartels are no joke – and neither is Gonzalo López-Gallego’s country-fried thriller. Social struggles tie weapons smuggling to impoverished Southern entrepreneurs, inviting boogeymen of Mexican descent to punish those who choose greed over safety. It’s a western standoff brought upon by evil, wicked men, all in the name of brutal consequence. Thugs living by a corrupt code, who we join just as bullet-slinging chickens come home to roost.

Patrick Wilson stars as the local sheriff of some forgotten U.S./Mexico border town, whose citizens are about to pay for a cartel deal gone wrong. Ken Mercey (David H. Stevens) was supposed to supply his contact with a surplus of ammunition, but his brother

‘Toni Erdmann’ Trailer: Fathers and Daughters Who Joke Together Stay Together in Maren Ade’s Cannes Standout
Vanity Fair has premiered the first trailer for “Toni Erdmann,” one of the standout premieres at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Initially considered a potential frontrunner for the Palme d’Or, Maren Ade’s hilarious (but ultimately quite bittersweet) film eventually left the Croisette empty-handed — other than the near-universal praise with which it was met. Watch the trailer below.

Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller star as a German father and daughter whose cordial relationship comes to a head when he drops in on her in Bucharest for an unannounced extended visit and his affinity for practical jokes wears on her more straitlaced sensibilities. It’s pure slapstick at times, but over the film’s 162-minute runtime (which, imposing as it may sound, doesn’t feel long enough) their strained dynamic comes to the fore.

The Hollow Point trailer: Ian McShane battles smugglers

Joseph Baxter Oct 5, 2016

The Hollow Point trailer has Ian McShane and Patrick Wilson as small town sheriffs under siege from a killer cartel conspiracy.

The trailer for the action thriller The Hollow Point seems to represent a slow, but steady topical trend in entertainment as the U.S.-Mexico border becomes more of an omnipresent subject, especially in the wake of election year politics. However, unlike another upcoming border-centric entry in Desierto, the central conflict of this film – pitting a pair of overwhelmed small town sheriffs against cartel ammo smugglers – seems to be fought on sides more conventionally delineated.

From the outset, the trailer for The Hollow Point showcases a land-scorched scenario in a desert town on the border who find themselves the centre of a clandestine deal with a Mexican drug cartel involving ammunition – namely loads of hollow-point bullets (designed to shred on impact,) to be smuggled into Mexico to arm some not-so-nice folks.

Watch: Ian McShane and Patrick Wilson Fight Gun Runners in Modern Western The Hollow Point

Patrick Wilson isn't known for starring in westerns, but with last year's Bone Tomahawk and now a new film coming out called The Hollow Point, maybe he should continue to explore those kinds of roles. This movie puts him at odds with Deadwood star Ian McShane in a story of gun running over the border between the U.S. and Mexico, and there's also some kind of badass mega assassin played by John Leguizamo who's out to kill them. This looks like an excellent VOD rental to me.

This one arrives on December 16, 2016, going up against Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (good luck with that, guys).

Patrick Wilson & Ian McShane in Crime Film 'The Hollow Point' Trailer

"The real concern here is - what's going to happen if this bullet don't make its destination." Vertical Ent. has debuted an official trailer for a crime thriller titled The Hollow Point, set in a small town along the U.S. & Mexico border. Patrick Wilson plays a new sheriff in the town, but things get go from bad to worse when the cartel starts hitting back. The cast includes Ian McShane, Lynn Collins, John Leguizamo, Jim Belushi, Michael Flynn and Derek Boone. This looks gritty and violent, hopefully with some good twists in it. Leguizamo looks gnarly as a bad guy, but the fight between Wilson and McShane seems the most interesting. This looks like a much more violent, totally brutal version of Sicario focused on the local cops. Here's the first official trailer for Gonzalo López-Gallego's The Hollow Point, originally from Yahoo: After being involved in fatal run-in with a gun smuggler,

The criminally underused English actor stars in “The Hollow Point,” an upcoming thriller out later this year. Watch the first trailer, which first premiered on Yahoo Movies, below.

Not quite a bad lieutenant but certainly a compromised sheriff, his character Leland makes an enemy of a Mexican cartel by attempting to prevent it from smuggling guns and other contraband into America. Unlike McShane’s best-known role, for which he won a richly deserved Golden Globe and received an Emmy nomination, this one actually finds him in the present day.

Ian McShane & Patrick Wilson Face Hell On The Border In First Trailer ‘The Hollow Point’

This election season is certainly making movies set along the U.S./Mexico border resonate a little more loudly. Later this month, Gael Garcia Bernal will fight for his life in “Desierto,” and toward the end of the year, there will be more thrills along the line where Donald Trump wants to build a wall in “The Hollow Point.”

Paolo Sorrentino’s much-hyped HBO series “The Young Pope” stars Jude Law as just that — a young pope, one who has some big ideas about how his unique papacy should look and how the Catholic Church should be run — alternately helped and hurt by various forces surrounding him. Early looks at the series have shown off the scope of Sorrentino’s wild vision and made it plain that the controversial new show is blazing its own path, much like the character it chronicles.

Ian McShane To Play Mr. Wednesday in 'American Gods'

Starz and FremantleMedia North America announced today that Ian McShane (“Deadwood,” “Ray Donovan”) has been cast as Mr. Wednesday in the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods. The series will begin shooting in April.

Neil Gaiman said

“When you write a beloved character (beloved with, or despite, or because of all his faults) like Mr. Wednesday, you get to watch the internet trying to cast the role. I've seen a hundred names suggested, but few make me grin like Ian McShane does. I've already been lucky enough to have him in one film (he was bright blue in it, animated, and probably Polish). Now I count myself even luckier: he's made the journey from ‘Lovejoy’ to ‘American Gods.’ Yesterday was Super Tuesday. Today is Wonderful Wednesday.”

Ian McShane teases his Game of Thrones role

In August it was revealed that Ian McShane had joined the cast of season 6 of Game of Thrones, and while his role remains undisclosed there has been much speculation from fans. Now the actor has given a hint at who he will be playing in the upcoming season, speaking to PopGoesTheNews whilst promoting his latest film The Hollow Point.

“I’ll give you one hint, I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that.”

***Spoilers***

Most likely McShane is referring to Sandor Clegane, played by Rory McCann. We assumed that The Hound had died from his wounds he received during his encounter with Brienne, but in the books it is thought that he is still alive and living as a character called the Gravedigger at the monastery on the Quiet Isle. McShane is likely playing the Elder Brother of the monastery,
