3:10 to Yuma | Play Trailer - Strangely enough (or maybe not so strangely), two of our picks feature tough guy Russell Crowe. First up is this remake of the cult 1957 western, in which the new millennium’s latest action hero Christian Bale (Batman Begins) takes on baddie Crowe and his evil minions. The winner? Who knows, but it'll be fun to watch these action/acting titans go pistolero a pistolero.
American Gangster | Play Trailer - After last year's The Departed, Fall is now a prime time season for action flicks that feature bravura performances, A-list screenplays and stellar production credits. Thus, we have Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (good cop) vs. Academy Award winner Denzel Washington (bad gangster) in a crime thriller epic directed by Blade Runner's Ridley Scott. Ka-pow, and, cha-ching!
Vantage Point | Play Trailer - A new action hero -- from the small screen? Maybe it's just us, but Lost's Matthew Fox stands out in this one...and that's quite the group to stand out from. Highly decorated thesps Sigourney Weaver, Forest Whitaker, William Hurt and Dennis Quaid round out a classy ensemble in a political thriller that, from the looks of the preview, will have heart rates racing, pounding and doing double kick somersault back flips. Yes, it's that crazy-looking.
