Morgan Freeman Shares His Love For Tom Cruise



2013 looks to be Morgan Freeman’s year.

The Oscar winning actor received the Cinema Icon award Thursday evening at Cinema Con, and is slated to appear in four films this year, including the recently released Olympus Has Fallen and the upcoming caper film, Now You See Me.

But, if there’s one thing that Freeman is most excited about this year, it’s finally getting the chance to work with Tom Cruise.

Freeman stars alongside Cruise in the sci-fi thriller Oblivion and gushed to HipHollywood at the film’s junket about his longstanding love for Mr. Cruise. “For many years I’ve wanted the opportunity to work with him and then I get this terrific script and get to play this terrific part with him,” revealed Freeman.

Freeman also expressed his excitement about donning nothing but leather for the film, and how he’s staying fit and healthy at 75. Check it out!

Oblivion is in theaters Friday April 19th.


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
