Since defining themselves as not only a platform for great programming but also a formidable creator, Netflix has found space for its output in almost every genre of television, film and various other forms of broadcast specials. Now dropping the new trailer for its latest venture, Ultimate Beastmaster, it has broached the territory of the obstacle and assault course physical challenge shows. While it might sound niche, there are plenty of these getting great ratings on channels around the world, from the original Japanese Sasuke – or Ninja Warrior in the English speaking countries it has reached – to the downright silly British Total Wipeout.(more…)
There are three new names in the mix for Netflix and Marvel‘s Luke Cagerole. Cage will first be appearing in six or seven of the Jessica Jones episodes before taking the lead in his own 13 episode series. Who’s in the mix? (more…)
Terry Crews is nothing if not persistent. He’s been throwing his hat into the Luke Cage ring for a while now. There was a lot of speculation about a Luke Cage movie when Marvel was just setting up its Cinematic Universe. Now that Marvel has committed to a Luke Cage series on Netflix, many of those same actors that expressed a desire to wrap chains around their waist and knock criminal heads as one of Marvel’s greatest black superheros are vying for attention from the Marvel casting crew. (more…)
Just when he thought he was out, he decides to throw himself right back in. Now that the Marvel/Netflix Luke Cage series has been green lite, Terry Crews says he wouldn’t say no if offered the role. Why did he publicly take himself out of the running in the first place? (more…)

The most hardcore cast in movie history is officially back and ready for action! Can’t wait until next summer? Meet the gang NOW in the brand-new teaser trailer.
Today has been heavy with TV spots. Instead of rifling off of a bunch of short posts, we thought it would be much more reader friendly to compile them into a compendium. OK, I admit it. We were just too goddamn lazy. Anyhow, scroll on down to see some new spots for Expendable 2, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises.
Lionsgate has released a third TV spot for The Expendables 2. Much like the first two spots, you can expect explosions and geriatric acting.
In the August 17 release, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road ()Randy Couture and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job.
Here it is, the trailer for Expendables II. This NerdBastard has to say that it is kind of refreshing to have a movie that promises simple things and delivers.
You want old action stars, you gott’um.
The Expendables II have all the bells and wistles that any 80’s action movie could want. One liners, crazy explosions, silent guys that shoot shit, inside jokes galore, The Expendables II has it.
But now we’ve got an actual trailer, with actual footage showing some of what happens when you put Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham,Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the same movie.
Sylvester Stallone and his muscle-throbbing, old-man action-star crew is back in the testosterone filled sausage-fest known as The Expendables 2. The film, directed by Simon West and written by Sylvester Stallone, David Agosto, Ken Kaufman and Richard Wenk (apparently it takes four guys to decide what blows up, who lives who dies…etc), is set for a August 17th, 2012 release. Lionsgate has released a new teaser trailer. Instead of showing off any actual action, it’s more like a roll call of who’s who in the action world. You know… in case you forgot Van Damme, Norris, Stallone, Arnold, Lundgreen, Willis… are in a single movie. You’re gonna have to stock up on HGH come time of release, because there is just too much macho for you’re puny ass to witness.
The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal…
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time – six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.
That is done the Expendables way….
The Expendables 2 will be released in theaters everywhere August 17th, 2012.
Because our dream of muscle-throbbing, old-man action-stars just won’t die…here’s a number brand-new set photos from the production of The Expendables 2; featuring shots of Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Bruce Wills, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme. The perfect complement to Stallone’s steroids.
Regardless off all the machismo, explosions and mindless action, I thought the first Expendables failed to live up to expectations. A squandered opportunity, in my opinion. Unless the sequel has any small hope of being better then the first mess, I really have no interest in it. Even with Chuck Norris. On a side note, Terry Crews officially has my vote for Power Man (Luke Cage), should Marvel ever get around to making it.
