The upcoming R-rated reboot of Hellboy (Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen) is moving along. This time, instead of Del Toro, director Neil Marshall will take the reins of the film with Stranger Things’ David Harbour filling in Ron Pearlman’s big red shoes. Recently, Ian McShane was also cast as Professor Broom as well, so the movie’s coming along. The one thing missing so far was who was going to be Hellboy’s main big baddie. From the comics, one of Hellboy’s enemies was the Blood Queen, AKA Nimue the Lady of the Lake. But who could play the role with perfection, terror, and be able to be a conceivable threat against such a towering figure of Harbour? Lucky for us, it looks like we have found our Blood Queen…
Damn things are moving fast today as Ryan Reynolds tweeted out a first head shot look at Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2. Brolin decided to up the ante though when he posted an Instagram shot that shows the full body costume of Cable. Holy Crap that looks fantastic. Check it out below. (more…)
If there’s one thing James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies have going for them, it’s a love and appreciation for some amazing music from the ’70s and ’80s… Ok, there are also some amazing characters, story structures, CGI effects, and a hell of a lot more, but those Awesome Mixes are, well, AWESOME! Fans who purchase a copy of the second film for their home collections will be treated to an additional feature that music lovers and fans of the film will absolutely die for: a special music video made just for the fans and it stars David Hasselhoff because… well, he’s the Hof!
Hot on the heels of last week’s first look at Domino (Zazie Beetz) Ryan Reynolds has just tweeted out a first look at Josh Brolin as Cable and it is glorious. Deadpool 2 is shaping up nicely and while some may have had issue with Beetz’s look for Domino, there isn’t a comic book fan alive that can argue that Brolin’s Cable isn’t straight from the comic book pages. Check it out below. (more…)
One of the most repeated criticisms of the DC Extended Universe series of movies so far has been their bleakness, their negativity, and their general sense of nihilism. There’s literally a line in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice where Superman says, “No one stays good in this world.” Great message from the man who stands for truth, justice and the American way, right? Well, an antidote may be coming in the form of a man who’s very much like Superman in terms of super-powers, but now Shazam! will have to find the fun and light-heartedness of the being a superhero in the DCEU.

After a very successful theatrical run ($860.6 million USD!) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to household screens (legally) later this month. Of course this means that the James Gunn directed smarmy spaceman/talking tree/angry trash panda sequel will hit digital and physical video packed with bonus features and deleted scenes, right? Of course! and you can check out one of those features, the gag reel, here, Now! BELOW! (more…)
With the summer movie season winding down, many of the heavy hitters have already hit theaters. While such movies like Beauty and the Beast ($504 Million), Wonder Woman ($396 Million), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 ($387 Million) have been making serious bank, these films also had massive budgets for film production and marketing costs. Sure, they’re making a large amount of money through box office receipts and merchandising, but they don’t have the biggest Return on Investment (ROI) for their massive budgets. Turns out the most successful film of 2017 so far did not involve talking silverware, Amazonians, or superhero raccoons, but instead were small budget horror films.
If you hadn’t noticed, Disney has been doing a few live-action remakes of some of their greatest films. So far, we have seen a live-action (with some hefty CGI) version of The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. Disney has been working on future releases of The Little Mermaid and other hit animated films, but it seems we might get to see The Lion King with Chiwetel Ejiofor potentially playing Scar in the near future.
Looking back at the original Death Wish in 1974, Michael Winner‘s film starring a then-53-year-old Charles Bronson is a time capsule. The 70s saw ever escalating crime rates in America, and the population felt powerless before a rising tide of particularly urban violence where random shootings, muggings and other attacks were becoming a daily reality. Understandably, people thought that one man with gun and the guts to dispense rough justice might have been the answer, hence the popularity of Winner’s Death Wish, even though several cultural commentators felt that Winner’s film was feeding America negative reinforcement of easy justice at the end of a gun held in the right hands.

After what can charitably be described as “a carreer lull” (and can uncharitably be described as “The Crappening”), M. Night Shyamalan is enjoying an impressive resurgence, with many seeing his recent work, particularly, this year’s Split, as a remarkable return to form. Fans are excited then that his next project, Glass, will combine the universes of two of his most beloved films: Unbreakable and Split. According to reports, the much-anticipated project could start shooting as early as next month. (more…)
