“He's the best there is, but he's a loose cannon.” With that impeccably delivered line, Guy Pearce was built up for sci-fi action hero status in the trailer for the Luc Besson-produced “Lockout.” Europacorp has now followed that statement up with proof, in the form of the film's first five minutes, and they're completely implausible, nonsensically plotted, and oh yeah -- pretty damned entertaining as well.

Lumet was never fancy. He never needed to be, as a master of blocking, economic camera movements and framing that empowered the emotion and or exact punctuation of a particular scene. First and foremost, as you’ve likely heard ad nauseum -- but hell, it’s true -- Lumet was a storyteller, and one that preferred his beloved New York to soundstages (though let's not romanticize it too much, he did his fair share of work on studio film sets too as most TV journeyman and early studio filmmakers did).

Jake and Elwood may have been on a mission from God, but Dan Aykroyd is on a mission to milk anything he's ever been associated with death for cash. Last summer it was reported that Aykroyd and co. were developing a "Glee"-style TV series based on the "The Blues Brothers" but it appears that's just the tip of the iceberg. At MIPTV it has been announced that Blues Brothers Approved Ventures LLC has teamed with Panacea Entertainment in an effort to whore out the fedora wearing duo in a variety of avenues that will include: an animated series, a Broadway show, a Vegas show, a radio network, social networking (?) and more. Comparing the brand to Coca-Cola and Nike (LOL), Panacea hopes to bring the characters to an audience "around the globe." Remember "Blues Brothers 2000"? That's all we're going to say about this....

And this fall, she'll once again be festival circuit bound as well.

The MPAA warns viewers the movie contains "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." In other news, the sky is blue and grass in green.
