International Star You Should Know: Emmett Scanlan

19 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Irish thesp Emmett Scanlan, 35, is best known for playing bad-boy Brendan Brady in Brit soap “Hollyoaks.” He co-stars in the BBC series “The Fall” with Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, and played the head riot guard in “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

‘Rocky’ Start

Growing up in Dublin, he caught the acting bug when he saw “Rocky” on TV. “I remember being a kid watching the movie by myself in the living room,” he says. “Right then, I knew I wanted to do what Stallone did. I wanted to act.”

Flying Fists

Scanlan got to use some of Rocky’s moves in 2009 Irish drama “Once Upon a Time in Dublin,” where he plays a bare-knuckle fighter who has to come to terms with the murder of his younger brother, and leaves a bloody trail behind him. For a kid who wanted to be the hero, he notes he’s often been cast as the villain. »

The Expendables 3 Blu-ray Review

2 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Expendables movies feel like they shouldn’t exist outside of a fever dream.  Even watching one, they’re just the sugar-fueled stories of a kid who’s brought in all his toys to fight each other.  The first two weren’t great, but had moments of charm, and the third film might be the best of the bunch, even if it often feels like the cast are brought in based on their days available.  Sylvester Stallone leads The Expendables 3 cast that includes Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Ronda Rousey, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer and more and my review of the film on Blu-ray follows after the jump. The film starts as Stallone’s Barney Ross leads a rescue mission to retrieve original expendable Doc (Snipes), who’s been in prison for – as he says – “tax evasion” (wink wink).  After the big opening set piece which »

Sylvester Stallone says The Expendables 3’s PG-13 rating “was a horrible miscalculation”

24 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Expendables 3 didn’t do too well at the box office, saved only by international takings. It didn’t do too well with us here at Flickering Myth either, and you can see why here and here. And it seems that the big man himself, Sylvester Stallone, agreed. In an interview with Crave Online (which you can read here), the action star is asked if future instalments will be R-rated:

“Absolutely unequivocally yes. I believe it was a horrible miscalculation on everyone’s part in trying to reach a wider audience, but in doing such, diminish the violence that the audience expects. I’m quite certain it won’t happen again.”

Phew. Lets hope that he sticks to that when EX4 rolls around. At least he lost that awful moustache.

The Expendables 3 is released on DVD and Blu-Ray on November 25th. Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) directs a cast »

Sylvester Stallone Says The Expendables 4 Will Be More Violent; Admits The PG-13 Rating For The Expendables 3 Was a Mistake

24 November 2014 5:57 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There was a lot of backlash when The Expendables 3 was rated PG-13 in order to garner a wider audience.  Between that move and the unfortunate leak that occurred several weeks before the film's release, the sequel didn't really hit the box office with its best foot forward.  And now franchise creator Sylvester Stallone is weighing in by saying that rating the film for more family friendly audiences was a "horrible miscalculation."  Incidentally, he says this on the eve of the film's Blu-ray release, which will feature an unrated version of the picture.  He also promises that The Expendables 4, should it happen, will be more violent. Hit the jump Stallone's comments on The Expendables 3 rating.  The film (along with the unrated cut) arrives in a Blu-ray combo pack (with Digital HD) on November 25th.  Mel GibsonHarrison FordWesley SnipesArnold SchwarzeneggerKelsey GrammerAntonio BanderasJason Statham, »

20 Fun Facts about Masters Of The Universe

21 November 2014 11:17 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was one of my favorite toys and cartoons back in the 1980s, and a live-action movie was made in 1987 that I was lucky enough to have enjoyed as a kid. I freakin’ loved that flick! As a nine-year-old, I couldn’t have asked for anything more epic. Unfortunately, the older I got the more ridiculous and stupid this movie became. Regardless of the fact that it’s a poorly made adaptation, the kid in me still loves the hell out of it. For this week's Fun Facts list I decided to revisit the movie and list twenty things that you might not know about it. There's a lot of great stuff here that I previously didn't know about.

Exclusive: Expendables 3 Gag Reel

18 November 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Arriving on Blu-ray/DVD next week is director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3.  Like I said when the movie came out, The Expendables 3 is a lot of fun and my favorite of the series due in large part to Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas.  All three are awesome and Banderas steals every scene he’s in.  In addition to the new cast, The Expendables 3 has a crazy third act that’s easily the best action scene of the franchise.  I think the team kills over a thousand people.  The film also stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer,  Antonio BanderasJason StathamJet LiDolph LundgrenRandy CoutureTerry CrewsKellan LutzRonda RouseyVictor Ortiz, and Glen Powell. To help promote the upcoming release, we've been provided with an exclusive gag reel from the Blu-ray.  It's about two minutes and features a lot of the »

Zachary Leeman talks with Derek Kolstad, screenwriter of John Wick

Derek Kolstad is a name you may want to keep on your radar. He’s the hot screenwriter of the moment right now with his new revenge flick, John Wick, opening and getting fan-boys and filmgoers excited about its violent throwback nature and fresh feeling.

Kolstad decided to kindly take a few moments to speak with us about Wick, his process and screenwriting in general. Check out what the man had to say about his dog loving protagonist and his own long in development movie career.

Let’s bring this story full circle. How did the screenwriter of John Wick start out?

I’ve been writing since the age of 13, but having grown up in the mid-west, I never really saw it as a career. I went to school, started a career in business, but over time grew desperate to »

Lff 2014: Electric Boogaloo – The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films Review

18 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Damien Chazelle.

Running Time: 106 Minutes

Synopsis: A new love letter to exploitation cinema from the maker of Masters of the Universe and the Delta Force with Chuck Norris.

If you like your films brilliantly awful, then you would have seen some of Cannon’s work. They did the Death Wish sequels with Charles Bronson, the legendary He-Man movie Masters Of The Universe and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, a film so cheap that they used an office block next to Milton Keynes train station as the Un headquarters. That’s absolutely true and anyone from Milton Keynes will tell you so. When they’re not too busy crying.

They also made America 3000, for which the trailer includes the line, ‘It is nine hundred years after the great nuke, and the role of women in society has changed, much to the displeasure of men. And mutants.’ It is »

How a He-Man sequel and a Spider-Man movie became Cyborg

16 October 2014 3:38 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How did an 80s Van Damme action flick emerge from a failed Spider-Man movie and Masters Of The Universe sequel? Ryan takes a look...

Cannon Films was in deep trouble by 1987. Its boom years, between the late 70s to the mid-80s, were largely thanks to an eclectic and hurriedly-made collection of B-movies: Chuck Norris action pictures, Charles Bronson revenge flicks and lots of things with the word ‘ninja’ in the title.

Thanks to its outsider status and anything-for-a-buck approach to filmmaking, Cannon Films became a major name in Hollywood, the grinning faces of its brusque founders - producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus - frequently appearing in TV news reports and tinseltown trade papers.

But in the mid-80s, Golan and Globus began to change their strategy. While they would still make Death Wish sequels and Chuck Norris pics, they began to dabble in making more expensive films, such »

Hellboy, Robocop, The Punisher and Jaa ply Skin Trade

13 October 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director Ekachai Uekrongtham (The Coffin) changes direction with his latest movie, a collaboration with Thai superstar Tony Jaa. It's been a long time since Jaa had a bona fide hit on his hands, and there's little chance of this one breaking the mould, however, he is joined by some awesome talent. Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) shares top-billing with the pintsized wonder, but he's not the only big Hollywood star to make an appearance. Sons of Anarchy regulars are currently seeking new employment, which means the likes of Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Peter Weller (Robocop) have some free time on their hands. Michael Jai White, fresh from Arrow duties, more than makes up the numbers in this decent looking action movie. Set in and around Bangkok, we'll bring you more information when we have it. For now though, check out the impressive trailer. Guilty pleasures don't come around that often these days. »

Negotiations Over! First official trailer for Skin Trade with Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa

11 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a host of films in the pipeline involving sharks, War Pigs, and other purveyors of carnage, Dolph Lundgren has a lot on his plate, but before that there’s the small matter of Skin Trade, the pet project that’s taken him over six years to get off the ground. An early 2015 release date is expected and the first official trailer has just gone live.

Lundgren stars as Nick Cassidy, whose family is killed by Serbian Gangster Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman). Cassidy tracks Viktor to Bangkok where he teams up with local police detective Tony (Tony Jaa). The pair set about bringing an end to Viktor’s sex trafficking operation once and for all. Judging by the trailer a lot of cans of whoop-ass will get opened.

Co-starring with Lundgren will be Tony Jaa (who will also be seen in Fast & Furious 7), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Peter Weller (RoboCop), Michael Jai White »

First Proper Skin Trade Trailer Teams Dolph Lundgren And Tony Jaa In Thailand

11 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Dolph Lundgren is very much the star in the first official trailer for Skin Trade, directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham (Beautiful Boxer), but Tony Jaa is lurking in the background, ready to strike fear into the hearts of men with his fists and his feet. Lundgren and Jaa play two cops who team up to take down Ron Perlman, an evil human trafficker who fled the United States after killing Lundgren's family and is hiding in Thailand. That allows for plenty of action, occasional flying bodies, and an explosion or two. Michael Jai White co-stars, plus the dependable Peter Weller is present to dispense authoritative commands. The film is aiming for a 2015 release. If the action is as consistently good as what's depicted in the trailer, this could...
