For a reason that is too unacceptable to try to find an excuse for, I missed Ryan Phillippe's directorial debut in Catch Hell. The trailer was released back in July, so let's watch or re-watch it together.
As you can see, Ryan is directing himself in this movie.
"Washed up Hollywood actor Reagon Pearce is kidnapped by thugs on the way to work in Shreveport, Louisiana. Trapped in a swamp hut, his kidnappers torture and blackmail him, hijacking his twitter account and threatening to upload compromising material. How can he escape his predicament?"
This movie premiered in the US on October 10 (limited release) so if you live in Los Angeles you will need to go to the Arena Cinema located on Las Palmas Ave. in Hollywood. When I say you 'will need' I mean it ...
Ryan (the director) kindly asked, Ryan (the actor) to bare his butt - who kindle accepted - for one scene. So basically Ryan made himself stripped butt naked and that is why I believe he would not have any objections for us to highlighting this particular scene.
Even tho Ryan's famous butt scene in Cruel Intentions was a bit more romantic plot-wise, we can all agree that 15 years later, Ryan kept this asset to its best. If you do not remember the Cruel Intention steaming scene you can click here or on the picture below to refresh that delicate memory of yours.
In Catch Fire we are far from the luxurious spa Ryan liked to relax. We end up in a cabin, in the middle of a swamp. That being said let's remove us from the dramatic and traumatic story and let's just enjoy Ryan - the performance - as an actor as we would do in an award ceremony ;-) See the photos in the second part of the post.
