With Game of Thrones approaching its final season, its stars are soon going to be moving on to other projects. But here’s a follow-up I don’t think any of us foresaw: actress Lena Headey, who plays the fierce and cunning Cersei Lannister in the HBO fantasy series, is in talks to star in …

“I am a survivor. But I am not alone.” Voltage Pictures has released an official trailer for a super weird, out-of-nowhere sci-fi film called Singularity, in reference to the theoretical “singularity” moment within computing / technology. John Cusack stars as the CEO of a company that is about to released a “super computer designed to end all wars.” Surprise! The computer determines humans must be eradicated, and unleashes an army of robots upon the world. This is less like Transcendence, much more of a Terminator rip-off meets Transformers meets Divergent, or something like that. The cast includes Julian Schaffner, Jeannine Wacker, Eileen Grubba, and Carmen Argenziano. It can also be filed under why-is-John-Cusack-making-such-terrible-movies, since it looks as bad as they come. This is one trailer worth skipping. Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Robert Kouba’s Singularity, direct from Voltage’s YouTube: In 2020, Elias van Dorne (John Cusack), CEO of VA Industries, the world’s largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention–Kronos, …

“These guys are coming after you…!” Cinedigm has released an official trailer for a new crime thriller titled Gangster Land, from director Timothy Woodward Jr., of the western film Hickok also being released this year. Not quite Gangster Squad, not quite The Godfather, this indie mob film follows Al Capone’s second in command, “Machine Gun” Jack McGurn, as played by Sean Faris. It tells the story of Capone’s rise, but through the the eyes of McGurn. Milo Gibson (one of Mel’s sons) plays Capone, and the full cast includes Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Peter Facinelli, Michael Paré, Jason Patric, Don Harvey, Mark Rolston, and Al Sapienza. This actually looks better than expected, but doesn’t look like a knock out either. Take a look. Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Timothy Woodward Jr.’s Gangster Land, direct from YouTube: The story of America’s most famous mobsters and their rise to power, Gangster Land examines Al Capone’s ascension through the eyes of his second in command, …
