    wow, already a new thread…I think this movie will fly unless the trailer is all the highlights already…been there w/other movies.

  • “”"Me so good

    Looking forward to the movie!

  • Lala

    The movie looks interesting so far. Anyway for the love of God, let’s thread became postive okay? Keep writing about this upcoming movie and his acting skills, because he’s a good actor!

  • Me so good”"”

    And also looking forward when you, dear Gerry, give up the Clingon!

  • Dan

    No disrespect but looks more on the levels of episode of Homeland series than a Hollywood movie and the CGI sucks.

  • Here we go!

    @Lala: You’re right! He IS a good actor that could be great so let’s hope he’s more then good in OHF! For the sake of the great ones, Angela Bassett, Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd, I hope he turns it on!

  • Concerned Ex fan

    Ive never written on here before but will make an exception today was once upon a time a fan of this guy but he joined the HW bandwagon of cliche of serial modeliser and douc/he he latest GF looks so over rated for no reason pretty but nothing breath taking

  • she

    Trailer looks great

  • Hotness

    Gerald is handsome without the beard.

  • Apple

    Why do you ladies keep saying shes clingy i know she is lol but realistically think about it he prob invites her and takes her to these places what makes you think she just lands there thats another thing she has no life but hes taking her on all these trips and its so unlike GB to have a woman joined to his hip constantly than we ever seen before…maybe his friends dont have time for him as much now and he’s lonely they both suit each other he’s got no class and neither has she…

    I just really feel sorry for the other women he’s had in the past that he had to feel hidden in the shadows. Personally i think thats what i think makes their relationship-liason work travelling here and there roaming around to every possible adventure…real relationships and some celebs too is when she sit at home, go food shopping, cooking a meal etc there is no stability in their relationship, I personally dont think she can get visa regularly to america thats why he meets up with her mostly in European countries just my take

  • Me so good”

    I wonder why some twitter girl so surely said that Gerry WAS READING A SCRIPT and tried to …. (last week in LA), he might well read A PRINT OF COMMENTS FROM JJ TREADS ABOUT HIM! :)

    PS Gerry’s posters leave JJ for another free speaking forum!

  • Stella

    I’ll be there. Love the trailer. My kind of film and my kind of Gerry. Try out for Mitch Rapp????

  • ohmydayswhatamess

    Looks like a poor man’s Homeland. Butler is just playng his character in Gamer, with a few more lines and a crappier accent. The high quality cast will, ONCE AGAIN, carry him and make the film palatable. The guy needs to drop the ego and take more acting and voice coaching lessons. My days, he’s such a lazy actor. It’s time for him to put in the work or make way for harder working actors. Right now he’s just taking up space. It’s annoying.

  • Bows and Arrows

    Sorry to be the one who tosses a cup of cold water on everyone but… the women walking behind him is not G, doesn’t look anything like him. The young mans facebook page applies that she is giving a radio talk of some sort. None of it means she’s there with him. Sorry.

  • January Jones

    OHF will be the only movie for him for the entire 2013 except for the Movie 43. What is he going to do next? Haven’t heard anything of him involved in another movie.

  • SUNKIST

    THANK GOD, THANK GOD! !!!! They ditched the first still of G. This one is a MILLION times better! You gotta get em in the door, right?
    ATA BOY G, proud of ya!

  • hot

    Oh yeah lovin’ the pic of GB! Life size would be the best! The trailer looks really, really good!

  • SUNKIST

    I just hope Mr. Yune doesn’t steal the movie. He is handsome, soft spoken but strong, and always seems to be the real hero. Sexy as all get-out. At least Alan Rickman wasn’t SEXY. This could be an issue.

  • SUNKIST

    Maybe we should all go see the movie, but root for the bad guy! That would show him! (snark,snark) ;)

  • prettyvacant

    @Dan: I agree. Looks cheaply made. All Gerry has to do is frown, growl, and run around pointing a gun. Lazy and immature characterisation. Does not appeal at all to a thinking filmgoer.

    @Hotness: great double entendre!

  • Untamable Shrew

    Aaron Eckhart is hot hot hot.I love that dimple in his chin.Mr.Butler has some competition indeed.

  • Lyla J.

    Looks like a good story I would enjoy and ,judging from the box office takes lately for big action films, one that might help him and Millenium a lot more financially than PFK. Regarding his American accent, maybe he and the tireless Jerry Butler, his dialect coach, should pick a regional accent and stick with it. He might just have the Cary Grant syndrome, though. Cary never got it either. He looks good in the still and the make-up artists should get an award. Just kidding (in Gerard fashion hahaha). He looks good in the trailer. He obviously behaved during filming. So, I missed a lot of reading. Did the barnacle nickname come about because she “helped” him get through the filming of OHF but then she started to grow on him and, well, now….???

  • Untamable Shrew

    @ohmydayswhatamess: Post 13,I have to agree with you about the cast carrying this film.This film will do alright.

  • prettyvacant

    @SUNKIST: Alan rickman was tremendously sexy in Die Hard and RHPOT. Subtle at times, hammy at others. And he can do accents and the Bard. A Cerebral actor who at that time moved like a dancer. What’s not sexy?

  • bonne nuit

    This trailer looks good. I can’t wait to see it. I also love Morgan Freeman . He is an amazing actor!

  • prettyvacant

    This looks generic, hackneyed, unoriginal, corny. The storyline and GBs acting. He doesn’t have an original line, an original expression, or even the hint of a vague understanding what an original plot is in the entire trailer. No subtlety.
    He once was able to show moments of subtle, understated emotion that made you believe he was emotionally intelligent enough to delve deep, but no more. I think he’s lost his ability, as well as his enthusiasm, to act. Ability to chose know a decent script is something he’s never had, without the right guidance. It’s all gone to pot and gone to his head since 300. That film will be his hiatus and his downfall.
    This film looks a like tabloid fodder, aimed the indiscriminating audience.

  • kelly

    omg this movie looks like it could go either way good or bad but does anyone think it kinda of reminds you of “diehard”think gerry will have a saying like bruce did in the movie? but our boy looking good so i will go see this movie …..

  • doctor

    @prettyvacant:

    You know that adult sound in the peanuts cartoon. That’s how you sound. Take a pill. It was a 90 second trailer. Idiot!!!

  • Crapola

    I still think this one will be better than Channing Tatum’s White House Fallen. Channing may have a cleaner image than Gerry but Channing is not really that good an actor to carry a movie on his shoulder.

  • justsayin’too

    Lainey is givig the trailer hell. She has hated GB since the incident at some party where he was being a misogynist pig according to her. She started calling him spittle after that. I think he looks great, the effects look cool but I am worried that the forced accent is going to hurt the movie. Anytime he does an American accent it just doesn’t work at all. I hope the movie does well for his sake though.

  • HeGrewUpLastNight

    @Crapola: Gerard is unique in his own rite. He has more Necessary Roughness than Tatum. Gerard is more closer to hardcore than Tatum. As Bruce Willis would, Gerard could Tatum…move over little boy…..

    Go get’em G!

  • Juicy Lucy

    After watching ten seconds of the trailer, this is definately a film I would pay to see. I hope it’s a big success for GB.

  • doctor

    I stand correcte; the trailer is over 2 minutes. It looks good; a good old action flick. And I agree Gerry could kick Tatem’s arse from here to Highlandtown. Channing is a horrible actor to boot. Good to look at, don’t get me wrong, but a monotoned drone actor. I’ve read both scripts and OHF is far better. All action, baby.

  • doctor

    I guess JJ won’t let me post some pics from another site. Gerry and Madeleine at a Roger Dubuis event. They both look good.

  • Here we go!

    @doctor: Yeah, she’s still “flashing” that ring on her left hand! So when’s the announcement?

  • There it is.

    http://en.mediamass.net/people/gerard-butler/engaged.html

    The farce relationship is reality. Get used to it.

  • There it is.

    @There it is.: I know the article says it is false. But it is leak for future to come.

  • cupcake

    Hi ladies. How is everyone. Yep. She does look good she actually looks entertained for once. Now as for engaged thats an old article. As for the pics of that ring on her ring finger. You noticed no close ups of that ring. I honestly don’t think thats an engagement ring. Sorry just the way I see it.

  • j

    ok that just might be a good one of his to see….

  • cupcake

    Btw, no other major mag is running with that story right now.

  • Here we go!

    @There it is.: Yeah, some of the fans will be in “morning”! LMAO! They can’t even spell! The only one perpetuating rumor here is MG herself, right under Gerry’s nose!

  • Hahaha

    I  knew he’d marry  her. Let’s hope he ties the knot with it  and does what he’s always hinting at- disappears.  He talents – or lack thereof- would be not be missed. Good  luck and good riddance I say. He’s such an awful actor. It’s getting painful to watch him on and off screen. He should just go away with his Romanian creepy crawlie clingon chick and not inflict his amateur dramatics on the cinema going public anymore.

  • Sami

    Just saw the trailer. Pretty one dimensional. Die hard type. Again, like his other movies, he can only save the day. Special Ops?!

    Boring.

  • Here we go!

    Will Gerry ever tire of people, especially other men, complimenting him on his lovely girlfriend? I guess a Ferrari would have been too difficult to drag around while globe trotting.

  • What now?
  • bonne nuit

    @There it is.: No, I don’t think any of the rumors are true. He won’t marry her or any other woman in the near future …. in my opinion he is not capable of a relationship of any kind until he gets his issues under control. Just my opinion as always…

  • TeaCakes

    @bonne nuit: I used to think that way but I believe he WILL marry her because he’s not getting any younger. He’s also not hiding her any longer. Remember he hid all his other relationships and no one knew a thing for sure. But he and Maddie have been seen everywhere together for almost a year now. He’s probably trying to work out the details so they can be together.

    Look at David Letterman. He was old when he fathered his son out of wedlock and then later married the mother. He said something about wanting to leave his money to someone worthy. I bet Gerry is wondering about that, too. Maybe he’d like to leave what he has left to a child of his. He’s said he doesn’t want to be an old father, either. I think he’s definitely thinking about marrying Maddie.

    I bet anything that they marry secretly, away from the media. Then he’ll drop the bomb to them later on.

  • sigh

    When will you idiots learn that media mass is a satire site?
    Every article on their site is deliberately bogus.
    It’s a S-A-T-I-R-E site.

  • Hahaha

    @ Teacakes

    Totally agree. Ladies he will marry her. It’s a very sad ending to what could have been a really good career. He could have chosen to work at his craft and he could have chosen to be with a lovely decent woman of any age.  He chose neither. The real Gerard Butler has stood up and shown his true colours and it’s a pitiful sight. He will marry her. The guy’s pretty shifty shittty like he’s soon to be fiancee. Accept it.

  • shill shill shill

    @HeGrewUpLastNight: Bruce Willis has a wiley charm which is why he is such a successful action star or has been for most of his career. I adored him in Moonlighting and I think he is underrated as an actor sometimes. He was brilliant in Pulp Fiction IMO.

    Gerry had his own charm on screen but it seems to be missing from recent movies. Even in a movie where he got to use his own accent. And as I hope I am wrong, I see the critical pile on has already begun, in terms of the entertainment media I mean. doctor, you can’t be a real doctor because educated people would allow other people their own opinions without lecturing in my experience.
