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 »

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, »

If there’s any space left for another action-packed, crime-fighting TV drama, Sylvester Stallone would like to fill it: Fox is developing the actor’s film franchise The Expendables for a small-screen event series.

Hyena is a gritty, brutal crime drama, but sadly, not one that really works.
Gerald Johnson's London crime drama Hyena stretches the definition of 'good copper' by some distance. Our anti-hero, Michael Logan, is not morally upstanding as much as he is competent and the film is open about that from the very beginning.
Michael (Peter Ferdinando) is the corrupt, substance abusing leader of a corrupt, substance abusing task force in a corrupt, mostly substance abusing Met. After he sees a contact murdered in front of him by a pair of Albanian brothers called the Kabashis, (Orli Shuka and Gjevat Kelmendi) who have designs on the London drug trade, his chickens all come home to roost at once.
Aside from being reassigned to the command of former partner David Knight (Stephen Graham) and having Internal Affairs' Taylor (Richard Dormer) breathing down his neck, Michael realises that the Albanians are also trafficking people, »
Variety reports that Fox is set to develop a movie from the 1830s period novels, Flashman, based on George MacDonald Fraser's writings. Ridley Scott's Scott Free and Peter Chernin's Chernin Entertainment will develop the project.
The Flashman character appeared in a dozen of Fraser's novels and was portrayed by Malcolm McDowell in the 1975 film "Royal Flash." The character is an antihero who often runs from danger but usually winds up being acclaimed as a hero.
Presented within the frame of the supposedly discovered historical Flashman Papers, the book describes the bully Flashman from "Tom Brown's School Days." The book begins with an explanatory note saying that the Flashman Papers were discovered in 1965 during a sale of household furniture in Ashby, Leicestershire. The papers are attributed to Harry Paget Flashman, who is not only the bully featured in Thomas Hughes' novel, but also a well-known Victorian »
One of the most curious cinematic releases this summer is the fifth movie in the Terminator series, Terminator Genisys. While the returning presence of Arnold Schwarzenegger will be welcomed with open arms by the hardcore fans (assuming they even watch this one), there’s been a lot of negative press about the movie since the official plot synopsis was first announced, alongside a rather garish set of promotional images courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Since then, a test screening took place in January to a surprisingly promising response, while script reviews have stirred up everything ranging from high praise to utter disdain.
Reports suggest that the movie is currently being tinkered with in post-production following the first test screening, with the fight between the older and younger T-800s being a major bone of contention for the studio. Even so, with script reviews leaking pretty much the entire plot »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to make his next non-“Expendables” franchise return to the big screen on July 1st with “Terminator: Genisys.” However, before the future Governator ever went back in time to kill Sarah Connor, he hefted a great sword in another epic '80s — and later — franchise. That series, of course, is "Conan," and it all began with 1982’s “Conan the Barbarian.” (Interesting side note — the first "Conan" film fared better at the box office than the first “Terminator” flick…and also the last “Expendables” outing.) Schwarzenegger’s first big franchise role — and the one that really catapulted him to wide renown (yes, “Hercules in New York,” I know) — Conan was and is a muscle-bound, sword-toting fantasy hero created by Robert E. Howard in the early 1930s. Schwarzenegger was unfamiliar with the character when producers Edward Summer and Edward R. Pressman first approached him about the film, »

We are into March and it is only a little more than a month until WrestleMania 31 in California. Last week was one of the times when I felt like I’d wasted time watching Raw, so I was hoping the Road to WrestleMania might take a more interesting and entertaining turn tonight, and I’m glad to say that, for the most-part, it did.
With the same old matches now being booked again, and some surprising things happening, this episode of Raw from New Jersey was good. It wasn’t great, but some of the parts of it were, and we’ll get into that in this column.

The WWE has announced the 2015 class of inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame. WWE Legends, Alundra Blayze, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, The Bushwhackers and Rikishi, as well as pop-culture icon Arnold Schwarzenegger will be immortalized for their accomplishments and contributions in sports entertainment. Who didn’t love “Macho Man?” He was the living embodiment of excessive costuming — Fringed jackets, giant wack-a-doo hats, neon, sunglasses that looked impossible to see out of — he was the very best and worst of his era’s fashion choices. And he was always snapping into a Slim Jim, which — even now — makes my mouth water just to type … Continue reading →

Director John Sturges' classic 1960 Western "The Magnificent Seven" will be remade as a big screen MGM Western by director Antoine Fuqua. Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Haley Bennett are the first cast members to be announced. The original film was based on another classic, director Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai". For decades, MGM has been trying to launch a remake of the film but the closest the studio came was with a moderately successful TV series. At various times, names like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom Cruise had been linked to remakes that never bore fruit. The first movie spawned three big screen sequels between 1966 and 1972. At the time it premiered, the only big name stars in the cast were Yul Brynner and Eli Wallach. However, the success of the movie helped launch supporting actors Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and James Coburn to full-fledged leading man status. German »

Our favorite "Twins" are back together again! Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played fraternal twins in the 1988 comedy, reunited onstage in Germany at the Golden Camera awards. The two pals exchanged a warm handshake and hug, as the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" star presented his on-screen brother with a Lifetime Achievement award. Can you believe it's been 27 years since the release of the hilarious hit movie?! Back in 2012, there was talk about the dynamic duo reprising their roles in a flick called "Triplets," but the project was put on hold. In the sequel, Eddie Murphy was reportedly supposed to play the long-lost sibling to the fraternal twins. Josh Gad, who wrote the script, revealed that the original stars loved the storyline. "To my knowledge, they all flipped out for the final product," Gad told MTV News last year. "Everybody is, from my knowledge, extremely happy with it." "The script is sitting there, »
