From Crust To ‘Creed’ – Stallone Delivers Michael B. Jordan Sucker Punch

15 April 2015 4:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Viewers in the UK who woke up thinking “Did I really see Sylvester Stallone in an ad for Warburtons bread last night?” may be reassured to know Sly is still working the day job. His Instagram account has played host to a production still of him in action with Michael B. Jordan for upcoming Rocky spin-off Creed. Here’s the pic:

The plot sees Jordan as the son – named Adonis! – of Carl Weathers’ legendary opponent track down his late father’s old sparring partner Rocky Balboa (Stallone) so he can be trained up as slugger par excellence. As you may remember Weathers exited the franchise during part IV back in the mid-Eighties, when a fledgling Dolph Lundgren beat him to a fatal pulp.

Ryan Coogler is directing from his and Aaron Covington’s script. Stallone is also back on production duties with Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff. The movie is set for release in November. »

Sylvester Stallone Shows Up In A New Creed Image

14 April 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There have been a couple of pictures out in the world from Ryan Coogler’s Rocky spin-off Creed, but this must be considered the... um... money shot? Point your eyes towards the image above of Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan training in the boxing ring.Written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, Creed follows the exploits of Adonis Creed (Jordan), the grandson of Apollo, who met a bloody, fist-driven death at the hands of Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. While Adonis never knew his grandfather, he feels the fire of the boxer coursing through his veins and heads to Philadelphia to seek out Rocky Balboa (Stallone).Hoping that Rocky will train him, Adonis battles through the older fighter’s insistence that he’s out of the game, and Rocky sees the strength and determination of his fierce rival and, later, closet friend in the young man. Reluctantly agreeing to help him out, »

Creed: First Look at Michael B. Jordan Sparring with Sylvester Stallone

13 April 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Among the upper echelons of great, ridiculous deaths in film, there is the passing of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), and then there's anything else. When last we saw Apollo breathing, he was getting bashed into oblivion by Dolph Lundgren's merciless Ivan Drago, following one of the most gratuitous pageants of Americana ever to be put to celluloid. For crying out loud, the man came into the ring being announced by James Brown and wore a bejeweled Uncle Sam hat to mark the occasion. One can expect far less glitz and glamour in Creed, the film which unspools the story of Creed's grandson, Adonis (Michael B. Jordan), getting trained by the one and only Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), and Sly took to Instagram today to debut the first photo from the film, showing him and Jordan getting ready to spar in the ring.

John Wick movie review: deadly dancing

10 April 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Funky-elegant, weirdly funny, visually intoxicating. I love this movie so much for how it’s different about being more of the same old stuff we always love. I’m “biast” (pro): love Keanu Reeves more than is probably healthy

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

And then sometimes a movie comes completely outta nowhere to wow you. John Wick has no right — no right at all — to be as good as it is. As funky-elegant and as weirdly funny as it is. As smart about being fresh and cool with hoary clichés as it is. As visually intoxicating as it is. This is written by Derek Kolstad, whose only previous credits are a couple of cheesy direct-to-dvd Dolph Lundgren vehicles. It’s directed by stuntman turned director Chad Stahelski, with an apparently uncredited assist from David Leitch… who is another stuntman turned director. »

Ryan Gosling, Nicolas Winding Refn documentary: 9 things we learned

5 April 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"You know you have made great cinema when

half love it and half hate it."

Only God Forgives fittingly split opinion quite violently upon its release in 2013, but its production process was similarly turbulent during six months on location in Bangkok. Absorbing new documentary My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, filmed by the director's wife Liv Corfixen, captures both the logistical turmoil and artistic ingenuity behind the scenes by offering intimate access to the personal environment and headspace of the Danish auteur along with the movie's star Ryan Gosling.

Here are some of the things we learnt...

1. Directors should avoid Tarot card readings from fellow directors

Nicolas Winding Refn receives a tarot card reading from his idol and legendary Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky, who issues a warning about the dangers of success. With the Danish director buoyed by the commercial performance of Drive, Jodorowsky advises that "this can change »

‘Furious 7′ Release Goes Ahead in Thailand After Injunction Overturned

1 April 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Commercial screenings of “Furious 7” went ahead Wednesday (April 1) in Thailand after the overturn of a court injunction which had blocked the film’s release in the country.

On Thursday last week Shamongkolfilm International, one of Thailand’s major film producers and distributors called on Thai courts to halt the film’s release, arguing that local star Tony Jaa had breached his talent management contract by appearing in the movie. It claimed damages of $49 million and obtained an injunction halting the film’s release in Thailand ahead of a June court hearing.

However, on Monday a Bangkok Civil Court threw out the injunction, arguing that other interested parties would be damaged by the film’s non-release.

The movie, the seventh in the “Fast & Furious” action franchise, opens in North America tomorrow (April 3).

Jaa was star of several movies produced or distributed by Sahamongkol – including “Ong Bak” and “Tom Yum Goong »

There would be no Hollywood movie ending if Ivan Drago were to fight Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao ... so says Dolph Lundgren who claims the "Rocky IV" villain would Crush both dudes.  Dolph was out in Hollywood -- signing some pretty cool pieces of memorabilia from the 1985 classic -- when he told us Ivan would have a simple message for the real life boxers -- "You will lose."

Thailand Release of ‘Furious 7′ Halted by Tony Jaa Contract Dispute

27 March 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The release of “Furious 7” has been halted in Thailand, home country of one of the film’s stars — martial arts ace Tony Jaa.

Sahamongkolfilm International, one of Thailand’s leading film groups, obtained a court injunction halting the scheduled release of “F7,” which had been set for April 1.

The injunction names Jaa, Universal Pictures and distributor United International Pictures (Fareast) and alleges that Jaa is in breach of a management contract with Sahamongkol that runs until 2023.

Jaa was star of several movies produced or distributed by Sahamongkol – including “Ong Bak” and “Tom Yum Goong” (aka “The Protector” in North America) – while under a long term contract with Sahamongkol as his exclusive talent agent.

Sahamongkol is reported to be seeking $49 million (THB1.6 billion) in compensation, a sum it calculates as the sum of previous investments in launching the star, lost future earnings, and 7.5% interest.

Jaa and Sahamonglol have been in »

Interview: Director Rob Baard talks The Ninja Immovable Heart

24 March 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with The Ninja Immovable Heart director and star Rob Baard

The endurance of the ninja genre is evident in 2015 with Rob Baard’s debut feature film The Ninja Immovable Heart, currently out on DVD across the Us (and out in the UK as Ninja on April 20). Baard, a 4th degree black belt in ninjutsu, has worked for years building up a ninja-based online universe. With his extensive knowledge of the art of ninjutsu serving as a foundation for his direct-to-video action superhero film, Baard is featured as a captured ninja named Reeve, struggling to unlock his dormant powers. The low budget picture features an extending cameo by top-billed Danny Glover (from the Lethal Weapon franchise), but it is Baard (who serves as writer, director, and producer) who emerges as the real star of the film.

After several years in development, Sony Pictures is finally moving forward with their Masters of the Universe. Sony executive DeVon Franklin revealed through his Twitter account in January that the script by Jeff Wadlow is now complete. During the week, the executive revealed what appears to be our first look at Battlecat in the movie.

Masters of the Universe is based on the animated TV series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which also spawned the 1987 live action feature Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor. No story details have been confirmed at this time and it isn't known if casting is currently under way.

Jeff Wadlow signed on to rewrite the script, which was previously worked on by Alex Litvak & Michael Finch (Predators), Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger) and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer). Are you excited to see Battlecat in action »

It’s Guns & Golden Oldies On The Small Screen As ‘The Expendables’ TV Series Announced

6 March 2015 5:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As Expendables 3 star Harrison Ford survives an eye-popping plane crash, more surprise news emerges that the Sylvester Stallone-created brand is TV-bound.

It was thought a female-led movie – The Expendabelles – would be the next chapter for the franchise, but now Fox are putting an “event series” on the slate which will do for small screen icons of old what the films did for the likes of Stallone and Dolph Lundgren.

The definitive Hollywood resurrection man is on producing duties, whilst Shane Brennan, Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward script the concept, which doesn’t sound a million miles away from the tried and tested formula.

Speculation will be rife on who’ll take part, but it’s safe to say Richard Dean Anderson (Macgyver), Mr T (The A-Team) and Lorenzo Lamas (Renegade) might soon be getting a call. I also see Fred Dryer (Hunter) and Dirk “The Face” Benedict being in the mix somewhere. »

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

The Expendables Take Aim At TV

5 March 2015 4:08 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With three movies of varying quality and box-office success out there (and more in development), you'd think that Sylvester Stallone would be quite happy with the amount of Expendables in the world. Yet he, along with producer Avi Lerner and Lionsgate have made a deal with the Us Fox network to craft an “event” series (read: along the lines of 24: Live Another Day) based on the gun-toting franchise to hit small screens. But with the change in venue comes a scaled-down line-up: gone are the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren and here come... Well, we don’t exactly know, as no actors have been so much as wishlisted yet, but Deadline reports that the project will likely be stocked with a Who’s Who of older, iconic telly action types and possibly some of the current crop (the Strike Back team, »
