Rupert Friend Plays an Elite Assassin in 'Hitman: Agent 47' Co-Starring Zachary Quinto

“Hitman: Agent 47,” based on the popular video game, centers on an elite assassin, played by Rupert Friend (“Homeland), engineered to be the perfect killing machine.

Xavier Dolan adapted a play for his sixth feature film. I’m guessing the reason why is to lighten his load of work. Though Dolan’s Tom at the Farm is successful as a film, it’s lousy as an adaptation. I haven…

Straight Outta Oscars: Why the Academy Won't, But Should Consider Compton

 

Catching the Hollywood ‘powers that be’ off-guard, “Straight Outta Compton” became the not-so-surprise sleeper summer hit, grossing $60 million over the weekend. I wasn’t expecting that high of an opening weekend, but the initial projections seemed too low. Universal Studios’ hip-hop “Compton” out-performed its predicted gross and sur…
