Bruce Lee Brought Back To Life By Joseph Kahn

  Director Joseph Kahn has managed to do the slightly impossible. He brought back Bruce Lee. Well, sort of. In the chinese Johnny Walker commercial below you’ll witness a fully CG Bruce Lee that is just shy of indistinguishable from the living breathing man. The obvious question that comes into play is how would Mr Lee feel about his likeness being used to sell alcohol? Well, Joseph Kahn has an […]

Filth Starring James McAvoy

James McAvoy’s new film looks insane. It looks bonkers in the best way possible. The film appears to be Bad Lieutenant meets Trainspotting. The official synopsis is : Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray […]

Sequelized: A Nightmare On Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street might be my favorite film franchise ever. I know that they got pretty shitty at the end but Freddy Vs Jason was great. Why is Nightmare a dead franchise? Why did New Line Cinema sell the rights to Platinum Dunes? Why isn’t there another Nightmare sequel that could be be both a new jumping on point for newbie fans and a continuation for older fans? […]

The Jungle Book Being Rebooted By Disney

Disney is attempting to get the ball rolling on developing a live action franchise based on one of their famous animated adatations. They’ve had rough luck of establishing franchises that weren’t related to Marvel Comics. They tried with John Carter and Lone Ranger. We all know how well those efforts went. The Jungle Book got a live action make over almost 20 years ago. I guess that’s enough time. It’d […]

Dev Patel In Talks To Star In Neil Blomkamp’s Chappie

Dev Patel is one of those actors that seems to be charting a course for the A-list. He’s already starred in Slumdog Millionaire, The Last Airbender, and he’s a series regular on The Newsroom. That’s a lot of A-list all up in that resume. Well, it looks as though Neil Blomkamp is attempting to get Dev Patel a starring role in his South African Robocopish movie Chappie. Chappie is based […]

Dear Mr Snyder

Dear Zach Snyder, I’m not fond of the person you’ve become. When I first met you there was an air of great potential about you. I thought  you’d become a really interesting and important director. Oh, how I was wrong. I first encountered your work on you first feature film, the remake of Dawn of the Dead. Initially, I was shocked and disgusted by the very idea of remaking arguably […]

Spike Lee’s American Remake of Oldboy Gets A Poster

Park Chan-Wook is one of my favorite directors. His sense of drama, his pacing, the subjects that he chooses. I love his work. I particularly enjoy his Vengeance Trillogy. They’re Comprised of Sympathy for Mr Vengeance, Old Boy, and Lady Vengeance. Oldboy, his adaptation of an acclaimed manga of the same title, follows a man who is imprisoned for two years for no reason and then inexplicably set free. A […]

Check Out This Extended Sequence From The Wolverine

The Wolverine looks like it has the potential to be good. I say ‘potential’ because I’m very guy shy about this film. The first wolverine was downright terrible. It was so bad, it was almost laughable. The film was so muddled I couldn’t even begin to know where to start. Well, the Wolverine is almost here and it looks like it COULD be better. The first step in the right […]

In Defense Of The Baby Blue Tracksuit

As the Lone Ranger has officially failed at the box office there have been numerous article floating around the Internet that are analyzing the various impacts that it will have on the film market, disney’s bottom line, and the future of Armie Hammer and Westerns in general. Those are all interesting topics but they haven’t been rattling around my head all weekend. The burning questions that appears to be inescapable […]

Abe Sapien Spinoff Movie Or TV Show?

People have been clamoring for Hellboy 3 for quite some time now. Last week it looked like we were inching closer when Guillermo del Toro said this: I hate giving pieces about it, but last night, we were at dinner and Ron [Perlman] said, ‘I would be very happy to do Hellboy again, when are we doing Hellboy 3?’ Thomas [Tull of Legendary Pictures] said, ‘I would love to see […]

The Way Way Back Trailer

The screenwriters that brought you The Descendants are now branching out into directing. Jim Rash and Nat Faxon have concocted a coming of age film called The Way Way Back. It centers around an introverted teen, his overbearing pseudo step-father and his lack of confidence. Inevitably our young protagonist meets a kindly theme park manager who helps bring him our of this shell. The film appears boilerplate and faily standard […]

Boxtrolls Trailer

The studio that brought you ParaNorman and Coraline is delivering another equalally delightfully looking piece of entertainment called Boxtrolls. The trailer is absolutely perfect. I’ll be first in line to see the film when it opens. I was sold as soon as the narrator said ‘sometimes there are two daddies and sometimes there are two mommies’. I’m on board. Bravo, Laika Studios. Bravo.

Niel Blomkamp Talks Star Trek 3

Neil Blomkamp is one of those directors that everyone loves. He’s talented, he’s got a distinct point of view, and he seems like a nice dude. It seems like only a matter of time until he gets snapped up by a franchise. The rumor mill was swirling around left and right just before JJ Abbrams was officially attached to direct Star Wars Episode VII that Blomkamp was in heavy contension. […]

I Won’t Be Going To See The Lone Ranger

I’m a huge Lone Ranger fan. I grew up listening to the Lone Ranger radio show. Then, with my parents indulging in this new-fangled technology called VHS, I eventually watched and memorized the 1950’s TV show. Since then, I’ve seen just about every incarnation of the Lone Ranger. However, this new Jerry Bruckhiemer/Johnny Depp/Gore Verbinski incarnation appears to have missed what makes the character so iconic. As a bit of […]
