Safe Trailer: Jason Statham is Still a Badass

Jason Statham is saving those who need to be saved once again the new trailer for Safe. Statham plays a man who comes upon a 12-year-old girl being pursued by some bad looking folks and intervenes to save her life. The film was originally set to debut in October of last year, but now Statham will save the day April 27.

Safe is from the producing team that brought us Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds.

Statham’s moment of heroism finds him protecting a girl who has a photographic memory. She has seen some sort of code and every mobster and evil doer in New York City seems to want her for that information, or at least kill her before it gets into someone else’s hands.

Will Smith and Peter Berg Hatch Ides for Hancock Sequel

Most superhero movies get a chance at a sequel and news has arrived today that Hancock will be no different. Director Peter Berg and star Will Smith have admitted that they are in the midst of brainstorming ideas for a sequel to the 2008 hit.

Immortal Gods
Berg spoke about his and Smith’s thoughts for a sequel recently and it looks like it will be a go, sooner than later.

“We’re all interested, but we literally just have trouble getting into the same room at the same time,” Berg told Comic Book Movie. “We did have a series of meetings last year and started to hash out an idea for sequel — and Will Smith actually had the idea — so I think it will happen. It’s just a question of timing.”

Stay tuned on this one!

Johnny Depp Tops Poll as America’s Favorite Movie Actor

With his box office success, topping a poll as America’s favorite actor should not be a surprise for Johnny Depp. After having interviewed him several times in locales across the world and knowing how humble he is, Movie Fanatic is sure he is taking the news in stride.

Johnny Depp stars in The Rum Diary
Harris conducted the poll, one they’ve done since 1994, where they ask thousands of Americans who their favorite performers are, male or female, and Depp has landed on top for 2012. After his stellar year in 2011 with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Rango and The Rum Diary, looks like we can’t get enough of the former 21 Jump Street upstart.

Denzel Washington and Clint Eastwood tied for second place, even though Eastwood did not act in a film in 2011, although he did direct J. Edgar. Next on the list is Tom Hanks, who continually lands in the top 10.

The big surprise in this year’s poll is the man who has been on the list since it debuted in 1994… John Wayne. Yes, he hasn’t appeared in a film in decades, but his presence here speaks volumes as to The Duke’s enduring legacy.

We’ll give our Movie Fanatic readers the same list of actors, and let us know: Who is your favorite movie actor?
