Hailee Steinfeld Interview for “3 Days to Kill” 

Oscar-nominated actress, Hailee Steinfeld, teams up with Kevin Costner for the upcoming action-thriller, “3 Days to Kill.” The young actress, who received her first Academy Award nomination for “True Grit” at the tender age of 13, plays Costner’s estranged daughter in the McG-directed and Luc Besson-produced (he co-wrote the movie too) flick opening in theaters on Feb. 21.

I interviewed Steinfeld via satellite this morning to talk about her movie. And yes, the Filipino in me is so proud of her Filipino heritage!

We talked about:

*** Her interest in making the movie
*** Her character that provides emotional center to “3 Days to Kill”
*** Working with Costner
*** Shooting in Paris
*** When I interviewed Steinfeld last year for “Ender’s Game,” I told her she should visit the Philippines, so I asked her again if she will be shooting in our homeland soon
*** Why you have to see “3 Days to Kill”

Have fun!

New "22 Jump Street" Trailer 

Fresh from the super-success of "The Lego Movie," directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have unleashed a brand new trailer for Sony's "22 Jump Street." I enjoyed the first one, I enjoyed Channing Tatum (don't we all?), and I enjoyed Jonah Hill. So we should all enjoy the sequel!

By the way, the sequel is not opening until June 12 but Sony already is noting that there's an alternate ending. Hhmmmm....

See Fantastic "Guardians of the Galaxy" Trailer 

Ladies and gentlemen, the first official trailer for Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy!" From director James Gunn (yes, he directed a segment to the most loathed movie of 2013 "Movie 43" so pray that this one is much, much better), the sci-fi super-hero adventure stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, John C. Reilly and the voices of Bradley Cooper (as Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (as Groot, an alien tree).

We'll see if it's worth all the fanboy and fangirl adulations when "Guardians of the Galaxy" flies into theaters on August 1st! For now, here's the trailer via "Jimmy Kimmel":

Happy Valentine’s Day! Watch “Winter’s Tale” and “Endless Love” (2014) Romantic Movie Reviews 

Two romantic films just in time for Valentine’s! First we have “Winter’s Tale” starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay as a couple whose love transcends time. The movie also stars Russell Crowe, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint, and a cameo by Will Smith as…gasp…Lucifer! This is from writer-director Akiva Goldsman based on the 1983 book by Mark Helprin.

We also have “Endless Love,” the remake of the ultra-schmaltzy 1981 original of the same name starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt from director Franco Zeffirelli. The 2014 remake is pretty much the same Romeo and Juliet rehash but this one stars Alex Pettyfer (“Magic Mike”) and Gabrielle Wilde (“The Three Musketeers”) with Shana Feste at the helm.

Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:
