Gerard Butler: Amber Heard Exits 'Motor City'

Gerard Butler drops his car off at the valet before heading inside the SLS Hotel on Sunday (June 10) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 42-year-old actor has a handful of movies in the works, including Motor City.

The Albert Hughes-directed drama centers around a recently released felon who seeks revenge against those who framed him and put him in jail.

Amber Heard and Gary Oldman were reportedly set to co-star with Gerard in the flick, but Variety reports both actors are no longer attached to the project.

………..YOU BETTER HIDE……interprete….YELLO……. You Better Hide :
You know I
Have never been honest to you.
I’m sorry.
You know I
Have never been honest to you.
I’m sorry.

You better hide from me.
You better hide from me,
Before I,
Before I,
Tell you the truth.
Hide from me.

I planned on letting you know,
But I always was afraid
Of losing you.
And now my words are gone.
I’ve lost them too.
Hide from me……………………………………………..(屮゜Д゜)屮 OH YEAH! xD

@Disagree: I tend to stick with one or two critics’ choices, the ones that seem to have similar tastes and viewpoints about films as I do. It’s served me pretty well so far. Two of my favs are Rex Reid and Roger Ebert. It’s not always 100% but I trust their appraisals. Also Ben Mankiewicz is another one I trust to give a fair critique.

As far as MGP, Gerry’s performance was great but maybe the overall theme of the movie was more about Sam and turning around his life other then the plight of the kids in the Sudan. That seemed to be a secondary theme but that’s OK. I think it jumped too fast from one thing to another at times. The flashbacks then could make things confusing. Overall I think Sam’s rehabilitation and transformation should have been done quicker and in the first third of the film or just done purely in flashbacks over all and then the rest of it about the kids and his work in the Sudan. I would say it didn’t get a fair shake at the box office and I believe it would have done better had it had a wider distribution.

@justwhatithought: Yes, dormant……at over 2400 posts on one thread!

Dormant? He’s got 2 movies coming out the end of this year and is fiming 2 between now and christmas.

@Jax:

Kind of like The Hurt Locker did. ITAWY.

@Disagree:

But that is where you are wrong. The bad reviews were mostly due to the director and script. The movie was disjointed and blame was laid firmly on Marc Foster’s shoulders in the majority of negative reviews.

@Datcat: 2390 pages of that was a couple of trolls fighting. It’s not like there are 2400 fans.

I meant “posts”, not “pages.”

Hi manny. You know e eryone I’ve seen this movie with from fans to family and friends had no complaints. They thought it was powerful. It made sense to jump around since this is how sams life actually is. No one was confused or disappointed with the pace.

Not sure when this photo was taken. At first I thought maybe it was taken in Shreveport last week, but GB is wearing too much clothing. It’s way too hot there for two shirts and a jacket. Could be an older photo:

I thought Butler did a good job as did all the other actors, but I did feel like it jumped around a lot and quite abruptly. There was a real lack of sense of time to the whole thing IMO. I’m not saying it wasn’t powerful, because I think Sam’s story is one of life’s interesting stories. Butler was amazing in some scenes and overacted in others IMO.
.
The movie would jump from one scene to another and you never had any reference as to how many months/years had gone by. If you were not familiar with Sam and his journey it would seem extremely disjointed and confusing. My hubby enjoyed the movie but kept asking me all through it, “was this years later?” which was telling as to how the timeline was communicated to the audience.
.
Again it is all edited according to the director. So I believe that those critics that didn’t like it had a point to lay the blame on Foster.

@Can’tGetEnough: I believe that guy did work for Playing The Field too.

When they shoot films these days in segments seems they loose some of the continuity and structure editing them back together. They shoot the end first, the beginning last, etc. I would think it would be difficult for the actors as well to keep their emotions intact and in the zone!

I think someone is running around today on their iPhone getting crazy with the thumbs. Why would “Getreal” have six thumbs up for making a correction? Very suspicious!

Oops apparently an honest opinion isn’t appreciated this morning…
.
Okay would it be better if I lied and said Butler deserved an Oscar nom for MGP???

Inside Seth MacFarlane’s Star-Studded All-Night House Party:

.

Also on hand was Gerard Butler, who was surrounded by ladies as usual.

“He was with two unrecognizable girls,” the source says. “He was definitely acting flirty with them.”

I agree with #2460 and thank you #2461 who thinks it a bit dated but good to see something “new”.
~K

Let’s not forget the uber party line…
.
He is so sexy.
He hasn’t aged in years.
He is the true definition of a gentleman.
He is so stylish.
He is so unselfish and humble.
He is devoted to his girlfriends.
He would never cheat on anyone.
He has several pairs of the tan pants.
He never stays out at parties all night.
He is the Phantom incarnate.
He is just like Gerry in PSILY.
He cares so much about Sam Childers’ work.
He always flirts but never touches.
The right woman could straighten him out.
He is a victim of HW.
He doesn’t make any decisions of his own, it is all evil Alan that makes him do it.
He loves and is totally devoted to Lolita and never lets her leave his side.
He is the best actor EVER! *heaves a sigh*
.
Did I miss any???

@Manny:

getting sensitive because of the thumbs?? lol

Have say I saw MGP, and thought GB’s performance wasn’t very good at all. His accent was terrible and his performance lacked nuance. The supporting cast was much stronger. To be honest the movie was badly edited and badly written, and it looked more like slightly above average made for TV film, with a lot more violence. As I have said before, he gives his best performances when he uses his own accent. Most think if you are distracted, in a bad way, by an accent the acting is poor. 

@Whatshedonenow:

Get ready to be uber spanked…

I have to agree that the costars in MGP were exceptional. Butler sometimes in his quest to act earnest can over do it IMO. The scene with the kid on the bed in Africa was one of his better moments IMO, and he didn’t say a word. I cringed during some scenes because he was so over the top. Michelle M stole the show IMO. Her portrayal of Lynn was stunning and I couldn’t see Michelle when watching her.
.
He just needs some acting lessons. He has the talent but doesn’t know how to use it properly IMO.

@Whatshedonenow:

that’s only your opinion, because people around the world also watch films and don’t care about the accents…they are only important to those who make a big deal out of it… In fact, many countries synchronize all films in their language…

@Manny:

for me Michelle was the weakest link…bland

2 unrecognizable girls???? @ 06/25/2012 at 1:04 pm

OK I’ll be the first to say it – MG who???

interesting word choice @ 06/25/2012 at 1:09 pm

unrecognizable as girls or nobodies in other words

was one encased in a bubble?
