The Debt – Opens August 31

August 15th, 2011 geekstar Posted in Uncategorized 3 Comments »

Even the best secret agents carry a debt from a past mission. Rachel Singer must now face up to hers.

Filmed on location in Tel Aviv, the U.K., and Budapest, the espionage thriller THE DEBT is directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (Shakespeare in Love). The screenplay, by Matthew Vaughn & Jane Goldman and Peter Straughan, is adapted from the 2007 Israeli film Ha-Hov [The Debt]. At the 2011 Beaune International Thriller Film Festival, THE DEBT was honored with the Special Police [Jury] Prize.

The story begins in 1997, as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (played by Academy Award winner Helen Mirren) and Stephan (two-time Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds of the upcoming Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy). All three have been venerated for decades by Israel because of the secret mission that they embarked on for their country back in 1965-1966, when the trio (portrayed, respectively, by Jessica Chastain [The Tree of LifeThe Help], Marton Csokas [The Lord of the RingsDream House], and Sam Worthington [AvatarClash of the Titans]) tracked down Nazi war criminal Dieter Vogel (Jesper Christensen of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace), the feared Surgeon of Birkenau, in East Berlin. While Rachel found herself grappling with romantic feelings during the mission, the net around Vogel was tightened by using her as bait.

At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team’s mission was accomplished – or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations that compel Rachel to take matters into her own hands.

Fast Five: Movie Sneak Preview Passes

April 15th, 2011 geekstar Posted in Uncategorized 21 Comments »

Sneak Preview Screening Fast Five
When: Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 PM
Where: AMC Loews Waterfront, Pittsburgh

www.FastFivemovie.com

If you would like to win a free pass (each admits 2 people) to the SNEAK PREVIEW screening of Fast Five, leave a comment on this post. Express your admiration for Vin Diesel, the Fast and the Furious movie franchise, Ludacris, and cars with nitrous oxide boosters! I have a limited number of passes. Passes will be mailed Thursday April 21, no exceptions. Thanks for participating!

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in “Fast Five.” In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.

Since Ludacris is in Fast Five, I had to give him a shout out with some sweet rides!
