Crime Drama News

John Hillcoat's 'Triple Nine' Sets Fall 2015 Release Date 2015 may be over-saturated with costly tentpoles, but we have release date news of at least two films that appear to be aiming at an older crowd: we suspect each will be worlds apart in tone once all is said and done, First up, THR reports that John Hillcoat’s followup to “Lawless” will hit theaters next year on September 11th. Titled “Triple Nine,” the Matt Cook-scripted heist thriller will follow “a crew of dirty cops that [are] blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist.

James Gandolfini doesn't think very highly of Tom Hardy in a new clip from “The Drop,” an upcoming crime drama that features the late actor's final performance on the big screen. “I'm not the guy that wasted his entire life waiting for it to start,” Gandolfini tells Hardy's character in the clip (above). “At least I had something once. I was respected, I was feared.” See video: James Gandolfini Is Respected, Feared in Trailer for Final Film ‘The Drop’ The Sept. 12 release was directed by Michaël R.

Video: The Rover Isn't That Depressing, Y'all Dan Deevy talks to Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, and director David Michod about flies in your eyes, and how The Rover really isn't as bleak as everyone thinks.

Dennis Lehane has been behind some of the best mysteries and thrillers of the past several years, as the author of Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, and Shutter Island. But this fall’s The Drop marks his first time actually adapting his own work for the screen. Based on Lehane’s short story “Animal Rescue,” the crime drama follows two cousins (Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini) who run a Brooklyn bar that functions as a drop point for local gangsters. When the place is robbed, the pair find themselves at the center of events which spin out of their control.

Watch: New Featurette For ‘The Rover’ Plus New Photos & Quentin Tarantino Praises The Film One of our favorite films of the summer is David Michod’s “The Rover” starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. It’s a completely stark and austere tale of a man hell bent on retrieving what is his, by any means necessary. But remember, it’s not quite post-apocalyptic. “It’s post-catastrophic economic collapse!” Michod stressed in a recent Reddit AMA. Got that?

‘The Rover’ Review: Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce Both Need a Shower After the Apocalypse Unlikely to win an endorsement from the Australian Tourism Board, “The Rover” presents an unrelentingly bleak view of the land Down Under in the near future. There's nary a koala bear in sight and no jocular offers to throw another shrimp on the barbie in writer-director David Michôd's downbeat road movie, set in the hot and dusty Outback 10 years after an undefined collapse.

Review: David Michod's 'The Rover' Starring Robert Pattinson & Guy Pearce Is A Bleak & Compelling Apocalypse Tale Having proven, with the terrific “Animal Kingdom,” that he could take a potentially small story of desperate men and blow it up into something much grander, David Michod attempts something like the opposite with “The Rover,” taking the epic, sweeping backdrop of a post-apocalyptic, dusty Australian desert, and turning in a tiny two-hander road movie, that is as spartan as its predecessor was operatic. It’s a mark of just what a talent the director is, then, that he can, on the evidence of this morning’s Cannes press screening, turn in such distinctive and compelling work in either register.

'The Rover' Featurette with Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce The Rover stars Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce are joined by director David Mich&#244d in a new featurette, which takes fans behind-the-scenes of this upcoming drama. David Mich&#244d reveals that he wrote the character of Eric specifically for Guy Pearce, who is relentlessly angry at how the world has evolved after the collapse of modern society 10 years prior. Robert Pattinson plays Rey, who is forced by Eric to help track down his former gang, with the actor revealing that his character has never had to think for himself before meeting Eric.
