Having spent the last year sat in screening rooms and cinemas watching over 200 of 2011′s cinematic offerings, it stands to reason that I’m going to have to sit through a fair share of duds. As I had seen the vast majority of the key Oscar plays before November, I spent the latter part of the year dedicating myself to seeking out the worst, most lowest common denominator fare ripe for a skewering, and with these twenty dreadful pictures, we have what are, in my opinion, the 20 biggest train wrecks of 2011. Note that Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star is still awaiting worldwide DVD release and didn’t get distribution in the U.K., so that’s one that I was forced to avoid, but I’m assured that it’s irredeemably horrible nevertheless. Anyway, on with the list…

Spare us a thought. We pitiful writers (do please pity us) subsist on a meagre diet of set images, teaser images, trailers, teaser trailers and recently teaser images for the teaser trailer for the trailer (see here and here for a hearty dose of overkill). Yes, it seems that we are doomed to a life of fumbling around in the cesspool of 21st century PR culture getting covered in slimy snippets of information, our nostrils filled with the stench of up to the minute minutiae. Well today you reach me at a new low as I (and by ‘I’ I mean Collider) rummage through what is essentially children’s toys for any dirty little snippets of news I can get my grubby hands on. Therefore it only seems right to warn you that throughout this article there will be a smattering of completely inconsequential, meaningless and only possibly accurate spoilers. »

There is a chain of buzzwords—collector's edition, anniversary set, director's cut, unrated cut, extended version, digitally remastered, Digibook, etc.—that studios slap on DVD and Blu-ray cases to tempt you to buy the same movies over and over again. Some are worth the upgrade, but many of those double dips are just the studio returning to the well one too many times. Read on and decide if you want to skip or double dip this month. The Expendables: Extended Director's Cut Sylvester Stallone muscled together cinema's favorite action stars of the past few decades for this explosive ensemble picture, including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and even a cameo by...

There aren't a ton of noteworthy releases to spend your leftover Christmas money and gift cards on this week, but if you're a horror fan there just might be a few titles of interest to you. The biggest release of the week is Final Destination 5, which seems to have appeased fans more than the previous installment in the franchise, along with the found footage lunar landing horror flick Apollo 18. Direct-to-dvd sequel Hostel: Part III also hits stores today, as does the crowd-funded Australian horror film The Tunnel and Uwe Boll's Dungeon Siege sequel In The Name of the King 2: Two Worlds starring Dolph Lundgren. Other options include the Jason Sudeikis comedy A Good Old Fashioned Orgy and Rowan Joffe's crime thriller Brighton Rock, but your best bet probably lies with this week's TV releases: Shameless: The Complete First Season, Archer: Season 2 and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret »

After watching the recent trailer for The Expendables 2, I have been reading quite a bit of speculation from various gaming boards that there very well might be a game in the works based on The Expendables that would be release on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Vita and possibly even the new Wii U. With a roster of a "who's who" in the action world such as Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis ,Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Rand… »

Director Uwe Boll is no stranger to video games or controversy but remains indefatigable and is back next week with In the Name of the King: Two Worlds, his sequel to the 2006 film he made based on the Dungeon Siege video games. The new film, his twenty-fifth, stars action hero Dolph Lundgren and is a direct-to-video release from Twentieth Century Home Entertainment.
The German –born Boll spoke exclusively with ComicMix to talk about the film and his approach, which ignores his critics, many of whom cite him as the worst director working today. In turn, Boll has challenged them to box, to see who is the better person but our conversation was far from combative.
ComicMix: This is your first sole directorial work. Any reason why?

German director Uwe Boll is like the Roger Corman of video game movies. He churns them out like a factory - and he knows it. But it is hard to hate his movies because the man is just a delight to speak with. We spoke recently about his newest film, In the Name of the King 2, and talked about working with Dolph Lundgren, time travel, budgets and, of course, sex. In the Name of the King 2 doesn't really feel much like a sequel, and it certainly doesn't fit in with the video game. What is the reasoning behind this? We are not really oriented with the video game anymore. The tie-in is with the movie, the first one. It is 50 years later because we know, budget-wise, we cannot compete with the first one. We felt »
Of course it has a time-traveling Dolph Lundgren in it. And it somehow manages to call out a second videogame franchise from the first film with Two Worlds (the first was an adaptation of the Dungeon Siege series. Anyway, we have two Blu-ray copies of Dr. Uwe Boll's latest up for grabs, with one of our usual, very simple contests. Here's the official synopsis for the movie: Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables, Masters of the Universe) stars as Granger, a lethal, ex-Special Forces soldier who finds himself transported back to a mystical age of sorcery, dragons and savage hand-to-hand combat. This modern-day warrior has been summoned to defeat the forces of darkness and fulfill an ancient prophecy. But as he fights his way to the truth, »
Enjoying a weekend of togetherness in the Big Apple, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington Whiteley were spotted stepping out in New York City on Saturday afternoon (December 17).
The "Transporter" action star and his English model/actress girlfriend were both bundled up in winter jackets as they exited a posh NYC hotel on the cold winter day.
The outing comes just after the trailer for Jason's upcoming movie "The Expendables 2" hit the web, as the sequel finds "Mr. Church reunite the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat."
Directed by Simon West with a release date of August 17, 2012, the action caper boasts a long list of big names including Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, »
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger are coming back to theaters in 2012 in The Expendables 2. And this time, they’re bringing backup. Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, and Chuck Norris round out the action-hero extravaganza in what promises to be one of the most outlandishly great action flicks of the summer. I’ll be honest, As a Die Hard fan of 80s action heroes, I thoroughly enjoyed the first Expendables movie. Sure, there was no story, the action was purely fantastical and it even had a happy ending, but the self referential moments of commentary on each actor’s career made it great. You had to live and love 80s popcorn flicks to be a fan. And, I can proudly say in my best Yoda voice that a fan I am. Check out the trailer for The Expendables 2 »

The upcoming sequel from Lionsgate Entertainment is being directed by Simon West, produced by Sylvester Stallone and scheduled for theatrical release on August 17th, 2012.

The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries.

I’ve never been, with the exception of the Rocky movies and two Rambos, a big fan of Sylvester Stallone‘s action work, yet I find myself intrigued by Bullet to the Head. Now, this is almost expressly because it’s directed by the solid Walter Hill — but you have to start somewhere.
Our first look at the film, seen above thanks to ComingSoon, is a classic Stallone image: in peril, but just about to inflict some pain on his enemy. (Who, in this case, I think is Jason Momoa.) It tells us nothing about the film’s prospective quality or entertainment value — two things that aren’t always connected — so I’ll say that if Bullet to the Head bears some similarity to the image in terms of content, we could be getting something fun. Based on Matz‘s graphic novel, the story follows “a New Orleans hitman (Stallone »

The Scoop: One of the most popular and acclaimed Broadway musicals in recent memory, "Rock of Ages" tells the story of a couple of small-town dreamers who get caught up in the big-city spotlight -- and it tells that story using the transformative power of '80s rock. That's enough for us, but if you're somehow not sold, the film version of "Rock of Ages" also features a Who's Who of Hollywood stars, including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Bryan Cranston and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Rock on!

A couple days we showed you the debut trailer and promo posters for The Expendables 2. I didn't watch the trailer, but I assume it's a refined costume drama in the vein of Emma. Either that or macho ass-kicking featuring genre-favorite action stars. A new poster leads more towards the latter as we see Sylvester Stallone stoically wondering what scared the number "2" so badly. Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film also stars Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Expendables 2 opens August 17, 2012. [Update: We've been provided with the hi-res version of the poster, which is now included after the jump.] Click on the poster for high resolution.
