An unintended companion piece to yesterday’s post, “Red Lighting in the Films of Martin Scorsese,” Hells Club is a blood-hued mash-up from Antonio Maria Da Silva in which a host of our favorite cinematic characters all boogie down — and draw their weapons — in the same pulsating nightclub. Writes Da Silva: There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, Outside of all logic, This place is known as Hell’S Club, But this club is not safe Terminator Versus Tony Montana Versus Tom Cruise Versus Carlito Brigante Versus Blade Versus John Travolta Versus Al Pacino Versus Pinead […] »

I’m going to let the video do the talking here, but this could be one of the greatest mash-up videos we’ve ever seen.
Titled ‘Hells Club,’ and gloriously edited by YouTuber Antonio Maria Da Silva, and his Amdsfilms, Hell’s Club features a ten-minute dance-off with Heather Graham dancing on down with Mark Renton from Trainspotting, Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars, Cameron Diaz from Charlie’s Angels, Blade, Johnny Castle from Dirty Dancing and John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever. Then there’s an awesome shoot-out showing The Terminator face-off with Robocop, Tom Cruise’s Vincent from Collateral, Scarface and Carlito from Carlito’s Way, and many more. This is just glorious.
Watch it now. Please, just watch it now. Just brilliant.

The sequel to Christopher McQuarrie’s Jack Reacher will be heading to cinemas in October of 2016, according to Deadline. Ed Zwick, who directed Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai many moons ago, will helm the adaptation of Lee Child‘s book ‘Never Go Back,’ which was published in 2013. Cruise will return to play the title character in Jack Reacher 2.
Never Go Back is the 18th book in the ‘Reacher’ series. Here’s the synopsis from Amazon.
After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had.
Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. »

As had been speculated just a few weeks ago, Tom Cruise is indeed returning to the role of Jack Reacher for his next project. Buoyed by the $480m global box office take thus far for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Paramount and Skydance are pressing ahead with the Reacher sequel, which this time is adapted from Lee Child's book Never Go Back.
There's a new director this time around too, with The Last Samurai's Ed Zwick helming the new adventure. And we have a release date, too. Jack Reacher 2 is set to land in cinemas on October 21st 2016. That means it'll arrive before a film Cruise has already shot. He wrapped work on Doug Liman's new movie Mena a few weeks back, but that's not set for release until »
It seems like every single conceivable thing in a movie is part of a supercut or mashup these days. But most of those videos do little more than assemble a roll call of clips culled from YouTube. They're basically just audio-visual listicles. That's not the case with Hell's Club, which is one of the coolest movie mash-ups we have ever seen. Created by editor Antonio Maria Da Silva, Hell's Club imagines a place where countless movie icons all hang, danc together, fight together, drink together, and sometimes die together. It may sound like a weird proposition, but the way he manages to cut together the Terminator, Tom Cruise's hitman from Collateral, Sharon Stone's vixen from Basic Instinct, and many, many, many more pop culture icons into one scene is just...

The Academy has a bad habit of forgetting movies that open early in the year. Of the 17 best picture nominees for the last two Oscars, only one (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) had a release date that was before September. But as the ceremony continues to grasp for new energy, following a ratings slide with this year’s show hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, one big improvement would be if the telecast tried to recognize movies from throughout the year. Here are 13 films—from the both indies and studios—that opened this summer that deserve to be celebrated on the Oscars stage.
1. “Inside Out”
For Your Consideration: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay
With the expanded best picture race, Pixar’s box office juggernaut ($344 million so far) set inside a young girl’s head—amidst a sea of conflicting emotions like Joy, Sadness and Fear—will probably be nominated in the top category, »

“Mission: Impossible” has been captivating audiences with high-octane action sequences ever since the film franchise launched in 1996. From the iconic wire hang in the first film to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge shootout in “M:i 3” to the Burj Khalifa sequence in 2011’s “Ghost Protocol,” there was a long list of thrilling and original set pieces that Christopher McQuarrie had to live up to when he took on the fifth film in the espionage series. The opera house scene was McQuarrie’s answer to that challenge in this year’s “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.” Tom Cruise hanging off the side of a a plane 5,000 feet in the air caught the attention of anybody who watched the film’s trailer, but it’s the elegant and heart-pounding opera sequence that really wowed audiences upon the movie’s release. The scene features Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and Benji (Simon Pegg) searching for a suspect at the Vienna Opera House. »

Still reeling from Tom Cruise’s latest action-packed outing in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation? Ready for another helping of the actor kicking ass and taking names? We have good news for you, as Paramount formally confirmed earlier today that Jack Reacher 2 has been slated for a release on October 21, 2016.
Opening in the crowded corridor on the eve of Halloween, this announcement pits the studio’s sequel against Ouija 2 and the long-gestating Underworld 5. Co-produced by Skydance, the fact that Jack Reacher 2 breached and secured the late October launch date means that Warner Bros.’ Geostorm – also financed by Skydance – has quietly been pushed into 2017 as a result.
Set to be helmed by franchise newcomer Ed Zwick, who supplants Christopher McQuarrie in the director’s chair, the sequel’s screenplay will reportedly be handled by Marshall Herskovitz and Richard Wenk. Working to adapt Never Go Back, the 18th novel in Lee Child’s sprawling literary series, »

In addition to Cruise, Cobie Smulders (The Avengers) was also recently reported to be in talks for a lead role. While initially reluctant to greenlight a sequel, Paramount eventually relented once they saw the original film's strong performance in international markets, where it pulled in over $138 million for a total worldwide gross of $218 million. Cruise was most recently seen in another Paramount production, the critically acclaimed Chris McQuarrie-directed Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which has grossed over $480 million worldwide to date and is opening in China on »

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have locked down an October 21st 2016 release date for the upcoming sequel to 2012's "Jack Reacher," the adaptation of the novel "One Shot" from Lee Child's popular Jack Reacher book series.
Ed Zwick is directing the Tom Cruise-led sequel which begins shooting in November and is based on the novel "Never Go Back". Paramount balked on the idea of a sequel initially, but as people have discovered the film in ancillary markets it has become a quite profitable little movie for them.
At the same time, Paramount has also confirmed that the title of Richard Linklater's next film is set to be "Everybody Wants Some" and has confirmed that it's still set for an April 15th 2016 release date.

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

James Woods in 'Videodrome.' James Woods in $10 million Twitter lawsuit feud: Crassly vocal right-wing actor goes after two crassly vocal users who attacked him In a letter dated Aug. 21, '15, Twitter attorney Ryan Mrazik ridiculed Surf's Up and Scary Movie 2 actor James Woods, while also highlighting the potentially dangerous precedent of a $10 million lawsuit the 68-year-old entertainer filed against a Twitter user last July. The lawsuit was followed by a subpoena demanding that the social media giant reveal the user's identity and that of another user with whom Woods has been embroiled in the (generally) no-holds-barred Twitterverse. In case you're unfamiliar with the name, these days the two-time Oscar-nominated Woods is best known for a supporting role as a right-wing sociopath in Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as a liberal-minded U.S. president despised by Woods' character), and for his relentless, »
