First photo of Benicio Del Toro as Pablo Escobar in ‘Paradise Lost’

07.2.2013 | By |

And here we have it. The first official photograph of Benicio Del Toro playing Colombian druglord Pablo Escobar in Paradise Lost. 

I had written an article about the news back in November od 2012 about Del Toro taking the gig after his “savage” performance in Oliver Stone’s Savages. He stole all the scenes in that film and word was that he could even be nominated come award season time. Even though he wasn’t, his acting left a mark and producers and directors were alert to him playing a druglord in a leading role in the future.  Read More

Stallone, Schwarzenegger: First trailer for ‘Escape Plan’!

06.29.2013 | By |

Back in the 80’s Escape Plan would have been the movie of the year! Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the same movie going one on one in leading roles!? What!! That’s what I’m talking about. But now both are evidently old, still living off their glory day reputations. Stallone more than Schwarzenegger is in better shape and can still have hand to hand combat battles, but Arnold just looks frail (they were also seen in The Expendables, but that was more a cameo than anything by Arnold). Check out the first trailer above and the new poster, plus pics after the jump.
