The unlikeliest action star: Kurt Russell in the 80s

7 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bob Hauk: Remember, once you’re inside you’re on your own.

Snake Plissken: Oh, you mean I can’t count on you?

Bob Hauk: No.

Snake Plissken: Good!

Escape from New York

Somewhere between Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the 80s had another action star, one that wasn’t unintelligible, one that had far fewer muscles and seemed downright average in comparison to Arnie and Sly. With three movies in a six year span Kurt Russell became America’s biggest cult badass.

First came arguably his toughest tough guy Snake Plissken in 1981’s Escape from New York. It’s hard to beat an eye patch and an abdomen snake tattoo. Plissken, a cocky prisoner, is tasked with rescuing the kidnapped President in the collapsed, criminal run New York. Following Escape from New York was Carpenter’s 1982 terrifying alien invasion remake of The Thing and finally Big Trouble in Little China »

Ivan Dragon to get his own Rocky spin-off?

16 May 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Could a Rocky Balboa shared cinematic universe be on the cards?

We already know that Sylvester Stallone is set to return to the role of the Italian Stallion as mentor to Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis (son of Apollo) Creed in Ryan Coogler’s upcoming Creed, and now TotalRocky has word that an Ivan Drago spin-off could be in the works.

The site reports that a screenplay entitled Drago has been filed with the U.S. copyright office, which is based upon Rocky’s nemesis in the 1985 sequel Rocky IV, played by Dolph Lundgren. Based upon an earlier script entitled Communist Boxing Redemption Movie, the new version would see Ivan Dragon fighting his way through prison en route to a confrontation with world heavyweight champion Mason ‘The Line’ Dixon (played by Antonio Tarver in Rocky Balboa) in order to save his mafia boss brother.

The script for Drago has been penned by Andrew LeMay, »

Manny Pacquiao Not in 'Expendables 4' Confirms Stallone

Review: Jean-Claude Van Damme Thriller 'Pound Of Flesh'

14 May 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Unlike Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme has never been known to have a charismatic, larger-than-life on-screen presence. He never had the memorable quotes or the classic movie roles. What set Van Damme apart from the rest of the pack was how he was able to use his martial arts background to create entertaining fight sequences. We remember him for his splits, his spinning heel kicks, but less so for his acting talents. However, as he proved in 2008’s “Jcvd,” an old, broken-down, beaten-up Jean-Claude Van Damme is actually quite compelling to watch. In “Pound of Flesh,” we get to see Van Damme tap into the darker, more grounded side of his persona once again, but it’s unfortunately stuck in this third-rate, run-of-the-mill actioner, which, for some reason, was edited to look like an episode of “CSI.” Read More: Jean-Claude Van Damme Joins Remake Of 'Kickboxer' Now, »

Ratchet And Clank Bags A Pretty Great Voice Cast

Set to come our way in 2016, Playstation platform game Ratchet and Clank is getting the animated feature film treatment, and while the games original voice cast James Arnold Taylor (Rachet), David Kaye (Clank), Armin Shimmerman (Doctor Nefarious), and Jim Ward (Captain Quark) will be reprising their roles for the big screen adventures of the young alien Lombax and his robotic pal, The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that they will be joined by some tremendous talent, with Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Sylvester Stallone, Rosario Dawson, and Bella Thorne (The Duff) lending their voices.

Ratchet And Clank Movie Gets Additional Cast

13 May 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ratchet and Clank The Movie got a whole bunch of celebrities to voice some new characters in the upcoming movie.

The cool thing behind the movie was that the original voice actors from the game are also doing the movie. James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet and David Kaye as Clank for example, but being honest they are not really big name brands. If it's one thing Hollywood knows, it's that if you attach a popular name to a movie it then creates easy marketing. Those celebrities then do interviews etc... and promote the movie.

Well that is what happened today as the studio behind the film has announced Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne, Sylvester Stallone, and Rosario Dawson have all joined the cast of the movie for additional characters. The film is being directed by Kevin Munroe (Tmnt) and written by Tj Fixman, who wrote the  series for Insomniac. »
