Christian Gudegast is the writer behind some pretty good action films like London Has Fallen and A Man Apart. Now in his directorial debut he brings us Den Of Thieves, the action thriller that pits two crews on both sides of the law against each other in modern day Los Angeles. Gerard Butler and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson co-star in this action-packed heist film, but is it just another mediocre movie?
The new theatrical incarnation of Hellboy, starring David Harbour is going to be a lot different from what fans have become accustomed to with Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman's initial films. The new one is set to have a hard-R rating and will be jam-packed full of witches and demons. But we're now learning that the changes don't stop there.
Actor Ian McShane was cast in the reboot as Hellboy's adopted father, Professor Broom. McShane recently spoke with Fandom and revealed that Broom and Hellboy will have a much different relationship than in the previous films, and a lot of that comes from where the movie chooses to begin their story.
“You don’t start with the birth of Hellboy… but the relationship between [Hellboy and Broom] is quite crusty. Does he trust his father? [Hellboy asks], ‘Why didn’t you kill me? I’m a monster.’ It’s a little bit of a psychological battle against Hellboy.
"There’s one important moment in [the film] when [Hellboy] sort of thinks he’s fighting his own people, the outsiders. So, he’s being used by the insiders, which is me, if you like.”
Even though the relationship between the two might go in a different direction, McShane says he will take a similar approach to the role as the late John Hurt did in the previous films.
“I’m sort of playing this part as a slight homage to John [Hurt]. I mean, I’m not playing it like him, obviously… but the relationship [with Hellboy] is very much the same.”
The Neil Marshall directed film will be released on January 11th, 2019.
We're learning more and more about Quentin Tarantino‘s highly anticipated Manson Family movie. The movie still doesn't have an official title but the Pulp Fiction director recently cast Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role, and there are signs that point to Margot Robbie joining the production next. But now we're learning some possible info about DiCaprio’s character.
Since Tarantino walked away from long-time producers The Weinstein Company, Sony eventually landed the film. We then learned that DiCaprio will play “a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business.” Now, we have even more potential details about DiCaprio’s character.
Deadline recently reported a whole bunch of new info about DiCaprio’s role, and the movie in general:
What he plays, more specifically, is an actor who had his own Western show, Bounty Law, that ran on the air from 1958 to 1963. His attempt to transition to movies didn’t work out and in 1969 — the film is set at the height of hippy Hollywood movement– he’s guesting on other people’s shows while contemplating going to Italy which has become a hotbed for low-budget Westerns.
DiCaprio playing an aging Western actor could be considered a call-back to the previous film Leo worked with Tarantino on Django Unchained. It’ll also be interesting to see DiCaprio playing a character who is considered past-his-prime.
The report describes the film as a “Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry of Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders,” and that Tarantino is about to “get busy with casting.”
Tom Cruise has also been rumored as another possible cast member for the film, and there’s also a rumor floating around that Tarantino wants Al Pacino in the film as well. Wow, could you imagine DiCaprio, Cruise and Pacino all in the same movie?
For years, the internet has famously mashed together some of our favorite cinematic universes, characters, etc. But finally, someone has put two of my personal favorite things together. Bruce Lee and Star Wars.
Youtuber Patrick Nan has created what could be the deadliest combination in cinema. Bruce Lee armed with Lightsaber Nunchucks.
Nan re-edited a fight scene from Fist of Furywith some awesome laser sword action added in. Clearly, those chucks are a weapon for only the most talented Jedi masters. I mean they look awesome, but they can't be safe to handle. Enjoy the video!
Liam Neeson teams once again with Non-Stop director, Jaume Collet-Serra for the action-thriller The Commuter. This time Neeson takes his very special set of skills on a New York commuter train in a race against time. But does is this action film a nice addition to Neeson's action resume?
If there is one thing movie fans like to do its relive moments from their favorite movies in a video game, even if that means modding an existing game for the full effect.
Check out Youtuber Hin Nya's epic and impressive vision of what the movie Aliens would be like in roller coaster form. Using the game Planet Coaster they created this 15-minute virtual ride that follows just about the entire story of James Cameron's iconic sci-fi action thriller.
It takes some time to watch, but it is well worth it, especially if you're a fan of Aliens!
Mark Hamill has been very vocal on social media about his part in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and because of that, we continue to learn more about what happened behind the scenes of Episode VIII. His latest revelation came last night after Hamill sent a congratulatory tweet to his The Last Jedi co-star Laura Dern who won a Golden Globe for her role in HBO's Big Little Lies.
In the tweet, Hamill mentioned that he and Dern's Admiral Holdo shared a deleted scene in TheLast Jedi and he hopes that it'll be included on the film's DVD release.
But how is that even possible? If you think your way through the entire film, there is no point where Holdo and Luke could have been together. By the time Luke "meets" with the rebels on Crait, Holdo has already blasted her way through Snoke's ship. Unless there is some sort of flashback I just don't see how its possible. But then again, Hamill who has trolled fans online before could just be playing with us all.
Fans will have to wait for The Last Jedi DVD release to know for sure.
Last summer we learned that Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stephen Daldry was in talks to direct Disney and Lucasfilm's Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff. Since then the internet has been abuzz over the fact that no one but Ewan McGregor, who played Kenobi in all three prequel films, should be considered for the job.
Now thanks to his Golden Globe win recently, McGregor talked about his possibility of returning to the Star Wars galaxy as Obi-Wan Kenobi saying, "There’s a lot of talk, and I’d be happy to play him again, but I don’t know anything more than you do." McGregor told reporters backstage at the Golden Globes, after he won a best actor award for his role in FX's Fargo. This isn't the first time he's mentioned that he is interested in reprising the role.
McGregor played the Jedi master in the Star Wars prequels from 1999-2005, and his voice was featured briefly used in a scene in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens when Rey (Daisy Ridley) had a vision after touching Luke Skywalker's lightsaber.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now in theaters and McGregor gave a glowing approval:
"I saw the new one over Christmas and I thought it was really, really beautiful."
Showtime has released a trailer for their new limited series Patrick Melrose which stars Benedict Cumberbatch. Patrick Melrose is based on a series of novels written by Edward St. Aubyn. This five-part limited series follows the main character’s journey from a very troubled childhood through adult substance abuse and, ultimately, toward recovery.
Cumberbatch's character struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by an abusive father and the mother. He is joined by Academy Award nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh and Hugo Weaving, who playthe parents of Patrick Melrose.
Each episode is based on one of the five novels and is written by David Nicholls and directed by Edward Berger (Deutchland 83, Jack).
No release date as of yet, but you can check out the trailer below:
Chris Hemsworth has been playing the mighty Thor for nearly a decade, but in the span of seven years, he's donned the red cape and hammer just as many times.
The upcoming Avengers 4 will mark the official end of Hemsworth's original deal with Marvel (same as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner). But there is hope we may see Hemsworth return as Thor in films beyond that dead. During an interview with IGN Hemsworth revealed that he's in no hurry to hang up the God of Thunder's cape, if Marvel wants more.
"I’ve just, literally two days ago, finished Avengers 4 and that’s my contract -- my preexisting contract is done now, so it’s kind of like, 'wow, that’s it.' Two or three films ago I was like, 'okay, a couple more.' I was enjoying it but I was like... I felt a little restricted. And after this last experience with Taika, and actually these last two Avengers, I feel like we’ve reinvented the character a number of times -- even in these next two, he evolves again, and you don’t get that opportunity often in a franchise. So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think."
Hemsworth also pointed out that for now, the focus is on the Avengers and the storyline about those characters.
"If I had the opportunity to do it again, I think I’d love to. I also think there’s an appetite for it now, or there’s a far greater range of possibilities of where he can go now, what he can do, just because we’ve kind of broken the mold a bit."
Infinity War is set to hit theaters on May 4, and Avengers 4 slated for release a year later
