When considering my favourite Christmas film, my thoughts weren’t first cast to movies about Santa, or Christmas spirit, or a kid left alone by unfit parents to protect the house against Joe Pesci, my first thoughts drifted to action classics which just happened to be set over the yuletide holidays. Crimbo was incidental, but my mind went firstly to Die Hard and Lethal Weapon. Let’s face it, they’re the bee’s knees when it comes to action cinema, and they just happened to feature the odd Christmas tree in the mise-en-scene. I’ve never been a huge fan of Xmas movie schmaltz. I do like a dose of It’s A Wonderful Life as much as the next guy, but equally I love to »

The Marvel-Netflix deal to adapt a quartet of second-tier characters as series highlights the super-sized challenge these companies face when it comes to mining their libraries — something DC has learned, at times the hard way.
Or, put another way, if you can’t name your favorite Luke Cage-Iron Fist story — or don’t even know they once teamed up in the same comic — it might take a little bit of salesmanship to convince you to give a damn about their migration to the screen, TV, computer or otherwise.
In a sense, the original “Iron Man” was something of a fluke — a visually arresting character enhanced by the perfect casting of Robert Downey Jr. Since then, however, there have been plenty of cautionary tales, including big-screen adaptations of “Green Lantern” and “Jonah Hex” on the DC side of the ledger, or before that Marvel’s multiple stabs over the last quarter-century »

Los Angeles, CA--Singer/actor Robert Davi will be releasing his forthcoming “New York City Christmas” single for the upcoming holiday season. The song was recorded at the iconic Capitol Records’ Studio A, where Frank Sinatra, Nat “King” Cole and The Beatles once laid down some of their most memorable work.

Dolph Lundgren, playing a hard case lawman, lays down the law to fellow hard case lawman Randy Couture in an Exclusive clip from director Giorgio Serafini’s “Ambushed”. Check it out below. I still contend that Sylvester Stallone and his “Expendables” buddies should get together one evening and come up with a coherent Expendables Movie Universe, where characters from the movie team-up. You could do prequels before they became Expendables, or jump ahead in time, or do side stories. I’m telling you, it would work. Call me, Sly! Ambushed charts the dark, seductive underbelly of Los Angeles, told from the point of view of two of its seedier denizens, mid-level drug pushers Eddie (Gianni Capaldi) and Frank (Daniel Bonjour). They want a chance to hit the big time. Unfortunately, they decide to achieve their goal by ripping off their middleman in a murderous bid for greatness, setting off a »
A bit of a delay since the last instalment, it's been a hectic few days, but here we are. We started last time by talking about a vastly underrated superhero film, The Punisher (2004). Funnily enough, Marvel's gone to the bank on that intellectual property three times in hopes of a successful and popular adaptation, with it failing financially on every count. So it only seems suiting we follow that trend with a look at another adaptation of the skull-wearing vigilante with a glance at The Punisher (1989) starring Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables, Rocky IV)
The Punisher (1989)
There's a certain irony in looking at the cinematic landscape of the 70's-80's compared to now, in regards to DC's and Marvel's battle for supremacy over the cinematic market. The Superman films were highly acclaimed, »
While Harrison Ford continues to remain tight-lipped about his return as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII, he doesn't mind spilling the beans about his role in next year's action epic The Expendables 3, where he joins an ensemble cast that includes Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes and Mel Gibson. In our exclusive sit down chat with the actor to promote Ender's Game, he told us more about Leader Max Drummer, who is essentially on hand to give Stallone's Barney Ross orders. Watch as he explains his role to Ryan J. Downey for this upcoming thriller.
I'm playing a character that is an authority figure. He creates an assignment. He manages the Expendables, and he has an interesting relationship to the character sly plays. While I am involved a little bit in the action, not so much. Its an interesting character, and I didn't know Sly before. It was fun. »

'Never send a boy to do a man's job', proclaims the first The Expendables 3 poster...
Director Patrick Hughes is a man set to be found in an editing suite for the next couple of months, as he looks to assemble the final cut of The Expendables 3. Shooting has finished on the testosterone-fuelled franchise's latest instalment. It's led by returnees Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li. Meanwhile, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas and Mel Gibson are amongst the new faces this time around.
Collider, meanwhile, has got its hands on a low resolution version of the film's first teaser poster (which we've, er, blown up a bit), which you can see below. You get a tagline and the title for your money, and not much else for the time being.
Still, we've got until August 15th 2014 to wait for the movie anyway. »
With director Patrick Hughes' The Expendables 3 due August 15, 2014, I'd imagine we're getting close to seeing the first trailer/footage from the film. As most of you know, the next installment has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson. Returning for the sequel are Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford joining the all-star cast along with Kellan Lutz, Mma star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell. No matter what you think of The Expendables franchise, you have to admit it's a hell of a cast, and one I can't wait to see kicking ass next summer. So while we wait for the first footage to hit, we were sent a promo poster which you can check out after the jump. »

Call Girl, 2012.
Directed by Mikael Marcimain.
A young girl is recruited from the bottom rung of society into a ruthless world where power can get you anything.
Sweden has exported a number of excellent films in recent years. Most notably among these were Let the Right One In and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo adaptation (and subsequent sequels). They’ve both received the Hollywood remake treatment since of course. With that in mind the prospect of reviewing another film from the home of Abba, meatballs and let’s face it, most impressively of all, Dolph Lundgren, seemed like a winner.
Call Girl, set in 1970’s Sweden, tells the story of troubled young teenage girl, Iris. Her mother is unable to control her so Iris lives in care institutions, but struggling to fit in where-ever she goes, »

The Expendables producer Avi Lerner has been speaking to the press in Bulgaria about The ExpendaBelles, during which he's claimed that Millennium Films is currently in negotiations with Meryl Streep (The River Wild), Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day) and Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) about joining the cast of the all-female action spin-off. The script for the laughably-named movie has been written by Legally Blonde scribes Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, and Lerner is apparently looking to add a female director before presumably reaching out to any actress with even a smidgen of action experience.
Before The ExpendaBelles comes The Expendables 3, which is currently shooting in Bulgaria under director Patrick Hughes (Red Hill), with returning stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews joined by Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Kelsey Grammer, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, Mma star »

Photographer and production designer Chad Michael Ward marks his feature directorial debut on the story about a doctor whose research into a panacea goes out of control.
Pearry Teo will produce through his Pearry Teo Presents label aimed at discovering emerging genre talent. Rosie Zwaduk and Elissa Eve are also producing while Ehud Bleiberg and Nicholas Donnermeyer serve as executive producers for Compound B.
“I cut my teeth on dark and morbid imagery in the early days of my photography, so I couldn’t ask for a more exciting or more appropriate return to horror than with this unapologetic bloodbath of a story,” said Ward.
“We are very fortunate to collaborate once again with Compound B on this project »
