It solidified a long relationship that Willis has had with Emmett/Furla/Oasis. He has made 14 films with them, with 10 Minutes Gone in post-production and past efforts that include the Richard Donner-directed 16 Blocks and the Stephen Frears-helmed Lay the Favorite.
The first in the new three-pic pact will be Trauma Center, written by Paul da Silva. It will begin shooting in February in Miami. Additional casting is underway on the film. Emmett, Furla and Lydia Hull will produce Trauma Center, while Ted Farnsworth, Tim Sullivan and Alex Eckert will executive produce.
Speaking on the relationship between the company and Willis, Emmett said: “We consider Bruce a part of the MoviePass family at this point. Bruce is not only one of the biggest worldwide movie stars but is also a force to be reckoned with, and we look forward to the future with him.”
Said Willis, “After 15 years, I look forward to continuing to work with Randall and George in the coming year.”
EFO is in post-production on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman along with Willis’ 10 Minutes Gone. The Michael Polish-helmed WWII drama Axis Sally starring Al Pacino is currently in pre-production.
A recent poll by the Hollywood Reporter/ Morning Consult found 62% of American adults thought “Die Hard” was not a Christmas film. And even Bruce Willis joined in the debate.
“Die Hard” sits at number 11 on ranking site Rotten Tomatoes’ 50 Best Christmas Movies. It also features on best Christmas lists by Time Out, and tops movie magazine Empire’s list.
The most successful Christmas movie of all time is Home Alone, with a lifetime gross $476,684,675. “Die Hard” has made box office totals of around $141, 278, 197, according to boxofficemojo. This year the British Film Institute includes contemporary comedies in its Christmas line-up, including “Gremlins” and “Home Alone”.
We take a look at different criteria: soundtrack, the time frame the film is set in, viewing habits, music, anti-Christmas element and overcoming of greed. We can prove it IS a Christmas movie. Sort of.
The indie action thriller, from high-octane director and regular Willis collaborator Brian A. Miller, sees the ‘Die Hard’ star playing a man trying to piece together his missing memory during a bank heist gone wrong.
In a deal that shows there’s still an international market for old-fashioned action, distributor Tiberius has picked up 10 Minutes Gone, Bruce Willis’ latest indie action thriller, for the German market.
The crime drama, from high-octane director and regular Willis collaborator Brian A. Miller (Officer Down, The Prince), sees the Die Hard star playing a man trying to piece together a missing 10 minutes lost from his memory during a bank heist gone wrong in order to find out who sabotaged him. Michael Chiklis and Meadow Williams co-star in the feature from EFO Films and MoviePass.
Tiberius also snatched up German rights to the action thriller Last Rampage, starring Robert Patrick as real-life convicted murderer Gary Tison, who staged a bloody escape from Arizona State Prison in 1978. Heather Graham co-stars in the film from Halloween 4 director Dwight H. Little.
Tiberius made it an AFM action three-peat with the pickup of T-34, a Russian war epic from director Aleksey Sidorov that follows a group of Russian soldiers during World War II who escape from German captivity in a wreck of tank.

Hey guys! I’ve updated the gallery with screen captures from the movie Air Strike a.k.a The Bombing. The film was released yesterday; I hope you enjoy the screen captures as well as the other photos that were already added.
During World War II, five different Chinese people fight their way through Japanese Air Force attacks to protect an important military machine in Chongqing, 1940.
Hey guys! In preparation for Bruce’s new movie coming out in January, I’ve updated the gallery with HQ promotional art, stills and screen captures from the 2000 movie Unbreakable. The new movie, Glass, is the 3rd movie in what has been referred to as the “Eastrail 177 Trilogy” (Unbreakable is the 1st part!). Hope you guys enjoy!
This suspense thriller unfolds as the audience is introduced to David Dunn. Not only is he the sole survivor of a horrific train-crash that killed 131 people he doesn’t have a scratch on him. Elijah Price is an obscure character who approaches Dunn with a seemingly far fetched theory behind it all.
Hey guys! In preparation for Halloween, I’ve updated the gallery with HQ promotional art, stills and screen captures of Bruce in the 1999 movie The Sixth Sense. Hope you guys enjoy!
Malcolm Crowe is a successful child psychiatrist who takes on the task to help a terrified boy who seems to be plagued by visions of ghosts. But as his relationship with the boy deepens, he learns some very disturbing truths about the boy’s visions.
Even though M. Night Shyamalan made his name with The Sixth Sense’s memorable twist ending, the big reveal at the end of 2017’s Split — namely, that it was a covert sequel to 2000’s Unbreakable — nonetheless took audiences by thrilled surprise. We’ll have to wait until January to see if the filmmaker is capable of once again blindsiding fans with what will be the third entry in his superhero series, Glass. But a new trailer for the film certainly indicates that the sequel is hiding a bombshell or two.
Taking place in the recent aftermath of Split, Glass will focus on indestructible empath David Dunn (Bruce Willis), now dubbed “the Overseer,” and his fragile nemesis Elijah Price, aka “Mr. Glass” (Samuel L. Jackson), as well as multiple-personality-plagued Kevin Wendall Crumb (James McAvoy), aka “the Horde,” who has the ability to transform into the monstrous Beast.
Even more than its initial trailer, this latest promo indicates that Mr. Glass is the one deviously orchestrating events, manipulating his incarceration at a psychiatric hospital alongside Dunn and Crumb to initiate a battle between good and evil. That conflict will rage both inside and outside the facility run by Sarah Paulson’s Dr. Ellie Staple and will eventually involve Anya Taylor-Joy’s Casey Cooke, the only female survivor from Split. It’ll also feature Mr. Glass’s mom, played by Charlayne Woodard — or so the filmmakers promise.
Glass arrives in theaters on Jan. 18, 2019.

“We want you to take this training very seriously,” utters Bruce Willis’ character in The Bombing (A.K.A. Air Strike) trailer, which has just graced the Internet. The film will arrive on DVD and Digital on 29th October, and also stars Adrien Brody. It is set World War II and focusses upon five Chinese people who fight their way through Japanese air attacks to protect a military machine.
The Bombing is known as Air Strike in other territories, but the UK market will get the different title when it releases at the end of the month on the home formats. According to some sources, it is the 10th-most expensive non-English-language film by production cost. The film’s Wikipedia page states that it cost a staggering $65 million to make.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Thrilling airborne dogfights set the sky on fire in an epic untold tale from WWII…
Inspired by the heroic, untold true story of Chongqing, The Bombing stars screen legends Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Expendables) and Adrien Brody (The Pianist) in an incredible tale of honor and immense bravery.
This pulse-pounding war epic centres around the courage of China’s citizens during WWII. As U.S. Air Force commander Jack Johnson (Willis) trains the Chinese aviators to battle Japanese fighters, a hot-headed pilot begs to fly a powerful bomber that could stop the attacks. Meanwhile, a team of spies and refugees must carry a game-changing decoder device through the war-torn countryside. The Bombing portrays this historic conflict in a thrilling new light.
