Hardcore Henry premiered at TIFF last fall under the title Hardcore, and swiftly inspired a bidding war over distribution rights for the innovative first-person POV action flick. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and executive-produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Hardcore takes the concept of first-person shooter video games and transforms it into one relentless, action-packed and gnarly film that’s sure to draw comparisons to RoboCop.
Rumors have persisted for years that Lionsgate wasn’t quite done with the Saw franchise — even though the last sequel was titled Saw 3D: The Final Chapter. But titles are meaningless as long as there’s money to be made, and with that pesky Paranormal Activity franchise out of the way (for now), it looks like Lionsgate is reviving the franchise that introduced us to James Wan, Jigsaw and a multi-film timeline so convoluted it would give Quentin Tarantino the spins.
Fox has yet to officially green light the X-Force film, but if Deadpool does as well as early tracking suggests (promo screening buzz has been pretty positive from general audiences) and if Ryan Reynolds has his way, it won’t be long before we see the Merc With a Mouth team up with the X-Force for his own superhero team movie. Given Reynolds’ success in getting a proper Deadpool adaptation off the ground, this seems fairly likely.
Presidents: they’re just like us. And by that I mean that they also enjoy settling in to relax and watch a movie after a long day of signing bills and organizing our nation’s taxes. Like Presidents Nixon, Carter and Reagan before him, we now have a list of every film Bill Clinton watched while he was in office, from the good to the obvious to the enjoyably bad and everything in between.
The trailer for the remake of Eli Roth’s campy horror classic Cabin Fever is less of a trailer, and more of an existential exercise in futility. To wit: what is the point of remaking a film if you’re just re-using the shooting script from the original? Perhaps Travis Zariwny’s remake isn’t an earnest attempt to re-adapt Roth’s original film, but instead to hold a mirror up to the Hollywood factory-culture of remakes that ultimately feel pointless and achieve far less than their superior predecessors. Or maybe this is just another dumb remake.
In news that will make some of you very happy (looking at you, Matt Singer), Arnold Schwarzenegger says that he’s actively meeting with directors for his long-developing Conan the Barbarian sequel. Previously known as The Legend of Conan, the screenplay for the project is now complete and it may have a shiny new title.
Terminator Genisys left audiences baffled — hardly the return to form for the franchise we’d hoped for after Terminator: Salvation (remember that movie?), and while there were some interesting / wacky ideas within, Genisys was mostly miscast and about as bland as Jai Courtney. Last we heard, the franchise’s producers assured fans that the series would continue after some “recalibrating,” but today’s update isn’t a very optimistic one for anyone who was hoping for another sequel.
If you didn't tune into DC's big Dawn of the Justice League special tonight on The CW, then you missed the official debut of the new trailer for Suicide Squad. Lucky for you, the trailer has arrived online and the Worst Heroes Ever have assembled, joining forces to take down a threat much worse than all their villainous powers combined.
When Len Wiseman first teased Die Hard: Year One, fans immediately assumed that the prequel / sequel story would feature Bruce Willis’ John McClane in a limited capacity — the plot sure made it sound as though Willis would only bookend the film as the modern iteration of the character, while a younger actor would take the majority of screentime as a younger version of McClane. Not so fast, says Wiseman, who promises that Willis will be given much more to do than merely introducing and wrapping up the story.
The CW is airing a big DC special this Tuesday, January 19, hosted by professed comic book nerd / director Kevin Smith and DC’s own Geoff Johns. In anticipation of the Dawn of the Justice League event, David Ayer and his Suicide Squad cast have dropped some colorful new character posters to prepare you for Tuesday night’s sneak peek.
Earlier this week, George Miller was quoted as saying that he was done with the Mad Max franchise, which came as a shock to many, especially since Miller has done nothing but talk up Mad Max sequels since before Fury Road even hit theaters. But as several suspected, Page Six had their story wrong, which just goes to show that you should always take their reports with a GIANT boulder of salt.
Reports began to surface this evening via social media that a trailer for Bad Robot’s upcoming mystery project is attached to screenings of Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The film is titled 10 Cloverfield Lane, and while many suspect it’s a secret Cloverfield sequel, there is some evidence to support that this not quite true, including a statement from J.J. Abrams himself. So what is 10 Cloverfield Lane, exactly?
