Mel Gibson and Charlie Hunnam find Waldo, but not the famous Waldo

Mel Gibson’s inexplicable Hollywood forgiveness tour continues, with The Hollywood Reporter saying that he’s teaming up with Charlie Hunnam and Eiza Gonzalez for an “action-packed thriller” called Waldo. The movie will be directed by Tim Kirby, a veteran of Veep and Fleabag, and it’s based on a series of books about a…

Oscar Isaac, Pedro Pascal, and more join Ben Affleck in Triple Frontier 

Last summer, we reported that Ben Affleck had stepped away from Triple Frontier, a Netflix movie about five friends trying to take down a South American drug lord. Affleck said at the time that he needed to “take some time to focus on his wellness and his family,” causing the film’s cast—which was set to include Casey…

Billy Bob Thornton to help pick up A Million Little Pieces: The Movie

Billy Bob Thornton is set to play a guy who may—or may not—exist, with Deadline reporting that the Bad Santa star has signed on to appear in an upcoming adaptation of James Frey’s memoir/novel/Oprah provoker A Million Little Pieces. Thornton will play Leonard, the mysterious mafia boss/mentor who looked after Frey…

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is a dull blockbuster that sends up dull blockbusters

C+

The legendarium of King Arthur and the Knights Of The Round Table is rich in symbolism, mysticism, and visions, and so any attempt to narrowly rewrite it for modern tastes ends up coming across as a failure of imagination. Antoine Fuqua’s King Arthur was the last costly wannabe blockbuster to ask what Arthurian legend…

Chicago, kneel before King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword early and for free

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword checks so many boxes on the blockbuster to-do list: There are big names (Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law), magic and spectacle, and of course, monstrous elephants. Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of the legend sees Hunnam take on the role of Arthur, the real heir to the throne that Vortigern’s…

It took “1,000 punches a day” for Charlie Hunnam to become King Arthur

Though there are variations on the story, the general thrust of Arthurian legend is that the man became king after getting his hands on Excalibur, the sword that made him a great fighter and established his lineage. Lucky for him, Charlie Hunnam didn’t have to track down a fabled weapon to become the ruler of Camelot…

Guy Ritchie somehow thought he’d make a “straightforward” King Arthur movie

Guy Ritchie doesn’t quite have the same “style over everything” reputation of someone like Zack Snyder, but nobody could really accuse of him of making movies that are “classic” or “straightforward.” His Sherlock Holmes movies reshaped the detective into a guy who is so smart that he’s a punching genius, his Man From…

James Gray’s tremendous The Lost City Of Z finds meaning in the unknown

A

Set in Europe and South America in the first decades of the 20th century, James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z is a lyrical epic of madness, mystique, and civilization in rich and almost symphonic dialogue with itself. The eponymous lost city is the ruin of a theorized culture in the Amazon rainforest—but also a symbol of…

Charlie Hunnam’s up a creek in the new Lost City Of Z trailer

We’re still two months out from Charlie Hunnam and James Gray’s new film The Lost City Of Z, weeks that will presumably be spent periodically remembering that the letter in its name is pronounced “zed,” not “zee”. In the meantime, we’ve got a new trailer for the biographical period piece, one that lays out some more…

Charlie Hunnam sets out on a quest for The Lost City Of Z in first teaser

James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z is the true story of Percy Fawcett, an early 20th Century explorer who developed an insatiable fascination with the Amazon, and from the first teaser you can see why. Gray captures the landscape’s enchanting qualities so you view it through Fawcett’s eyes, not those of the naysayers…

Charlie Hunnam, LĂ©a Seydoux to star in love story from Equals director

According to The Hollywood Reporter, apices of human attractiveness Charlie Hunnam (Sons Of Anarchy) and Léa Seydoux (The Lobster) might finally mate in a new film by Equals director Drake Doremus. There are no details about the currently untitled project other than that it’s a “unique love story,” though presumably…

Rami Malek and Charlie Hunnam will break out of jail in the Papillon remake

It’s exceedingly difficult to imagine that any sound-minded person has ever uttered a sentence along the lines of, “That Charlie Hunnam guy, he’s like a modern day Steve McQueen.” He might be a good-looking blonde on a motorcycle, but after nearly two decades in the business, the Sons Of Anarchy star is still far from…

Now that he’s King Arthur, Charlie Hunnam won’t be back for Pacific Rim 2

After Sons Of Anarchy wrapped, Charlie Hunnam went from Prince Hamlet stand-in to King Arthur portrayer for Guy Ritchie. Along with playing that legendary warrior and ruler, Hunnam’s recently wrapped James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z, which is still slated for release later this year. Between replacing Benedict…
