Antonio Banderas & Olga Kurylenko in Trailer for 'Gun Shy' Comedy

"Rock out with your glock out." Saban Films has debuted the first official trailer for an action comedy called Gun Shy, formerly known as Salty (which is the title that appears on the very early poster art seen below the trailer). The movie stars Antonio Banderas as an over-the-top rockstar named Turk Henry, with a wife played by Olga Kurylenko. She gets kidnapped while the two are vacationing in Chile, and Banderas recruits some wacky people to help him find and free her. Sounds like a fun straight-to-vhs concept for an action movie, why not. The full cast includes Ben Cura, Mark Valley, Aisling Loftus, David Mitchell, Jeremy Swift, and Jesse Johnson. This really looks ridiculous, but it may be a fun beer-and-pizza rental. Here's the first official trailer (+ new poster) for Simon West's Gun Shy, direct from YouTube: When vacationing in Chile, an aging and pampered rock star

Anna Friel and Paula Malcomson have joined the cast of Jimmy McGovern’s six-part BBC drama “Broken,” starring “Lord of the Rings” actor Sean Bean.

The prime-time drama for flagship channel BBC One starts filming this week in Liverpool and stars Bean as a modern, maverick Catholic priest presiding over a Northern English urban parish who is confidant, counsellor and confessor to a congregation struggling to reconcile its beliefs with the challenges of daily life in contemporary Britain.

Friel, who worked with McGovern on the third season of “The Street” in 2009, will play a single mother living with her three children and mother in the heart of the community.

“‘The Street’ gave me one of my most rewarding roles, and afterwards I promised myself that I would collaborate with Jimmy McGovern again,” said Friel. “When the chance came up to work on ‘Broken,’ I jumped at it. It’s a typically brave and truthful script from Jimmy

War and Peace recap episode four: doom with a view

Opportunity knocks for Boris, Anatole makes a play for Natasha and Nikolai tries to do the right thing as Tolstoy’s epic continues

Oh dear, oh dear. It’s all taken a very wrong turn. Emotionally, I mean. (Poor Prince Andrei and his forever opening-and-closing Austerlitz wound!) Narratively, directorially and aesthetically everything is still on top form. The strands are slowing coming together and it’s all rising to fever pitch.

Aisling Loftus: 'Tolstoy is quite cruel about women'

As the orphaned and penniless ward Sonya in the BBC’s adaptation of War and Peace, Loftus has captured her character’s journey from little kitten to sterile flower. But has she read the book? Of course she has

In a shadowy corner of the restaurant, Aisling Loftus and I are discussing the strange business of interviews. Loftus isn’t a fan. “As soon as you start talking about acting, you sound like a wanker,” she sighs. “Also, there’s this presumption that if you’re an actor, you like the heightened visibility.”

She rubs her forehead worriedly. “I’m not sure I do.”

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Character Posters Are Ready for War

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Character Posters Are Ready for War
When Jane Austen came up with the idea for her literary classic Pride & Prejudice, it seems unlikely that she would have thought about throwing zombies into the mix, way back in 1813. Thankfully, author Seth Grahame-Smith did, tweaking this beloved story and turning it into Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. While we wait for the movie adaptation to hit theaters on February 5, 2016, Imp Awards has debuted eight new character posters, which come just a few weeks after the first trailer arrived.

These one-sheets feature Jack Huston as Mr. Wickham, Lena Headey as Lady Catherine De Bourgh, Douglas Booth as Mr. Bingley, Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, Suki Waterhouse as Kitty Bennet, Matt Smith as Mr. Collins and Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet. If you're familiar with Jane Austen's original novel, these characters will all seem like old friends, but they certainly don't carry swords and firearms in the book, like

If you're already rolling your eyes at another "zombies + wacky setting" movie, it might be worth it to pause for a moment. "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" once had none other than David O. Russell attached to direct. So perhaps there's a bit more substance between the ears of this one?

Mr. Selfridge: TV Show Ending; No Season Five?

It looks like there won't be a fifth season for the Mr. Selfridge TV series. "It's the last series," co-star Amanda Abbington reportedly told What's On TV, "We won't be doing any more, which will be really sad because it's been a part of my life for four years." While ITV hasn't confirmed or denied Abbington's statement, last year series creator Andrew Davies said, "It was always conceived of as four series."

Mr. Selfridge follows flamboyant businessman Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) who decides to build the biggest and finest department store in the world at the "dead end" of Oxford Street in London. In addition to Piven and Abbington, the series stars Frances O'Connor, Katherine Kelly, Gregory Fitoussi, Aisling Loftus, and Trystan Gravelle.

Mr Selfridge stars talk exit: "It's a satisfying ending"

Mr Selfridge stars Aisling Loftus and Gregory Fitoussi have spoken to Digital Spy about their characters' exit from the show.

Agnes (Loftus) and Henri (Fitoussi) departed the ITV series in tonight's (February 15) episode, following troubles in their marriage caused by Henri's war trauma.

"At the end of the second series, separately we both decided to leave the show," Fitoussi told DS. "...and we agreed to make a few episodes to have the characters leave."

Fitoussi called the couple's exit "satisfying", while Loftus also described it as "a really natural ending [that] makes sense".

" I think if people are fans of Henri and Agnes, they would feel it's a satisfying ending," she said. "Ultimately, as much as its been difficult, they love each other and that's the end note.

"It's a huge ensemble cast - there's a lot of characters so I think it makes sense, as a viewer, [to say] 'Let's look at

Dano will play Pierre Bezukhov, James is Natasha Rostova and Norton is Prince Andrei Bolkonsky. These three are described by Davies as “Pierre, the bumbling, chaotic idealist; Prince Andrei, whose cool Darcy-like exterior conceals huge emotional conflict; and Natasha Rostova, possibly the most appealing heroine in literature.”

Also in the cast are Stephen Rea (“The Shadow Line”) as Prince Vassily Kuragin, Ade Edmondson (“Blood”) and Greta Scacchi (“Brideshead Revisited”) as Count and Countess Rostov; as well as Jack Lowden (“The Tunnel”) as Nikolai Rostov, Tom Burke (“The Musketeers,” “The Hour”) as Dolokhov and Aisling Loftus (“Mr. Selfridge”) as Sonya.
