A pirated copy of Sylvester Stallone-starrer “The Expendables 3” hit the Internet last Wednesday. There have already been nearly 2 million illegal downloads of the film so far, with its theatrical debut still 16 days away.
Could this — counterintuitively — actually be a boon for the movie’s distributor, Lionsgate, and put more butts in theater seats? Some argue that piracy, in this case, could be a big win for Hollywood.
“Leaking a month before its release might just be the best thing that ever happened to ‘The Expendables 3,’” wrote The Verge’s David Pierce, who admitted he downloaded and watched a copy of the movie.
The “two-plus hours of near-flawless action porn” is tailor-made to be seen on the bigscreen, so the illicit copies floating around on torrent sites will only drive up ticket sales, in Pierce’s estimation. “I’m already counting down the days until I can see it in Imax, »

If you're like us, you can't wait for the first day of every month, because you know that Netflix is going to add a ton of new movies and TV shows. You refresh your account over and over again at midnight, hoping that those titles listed in the "Recently Added" section update with something new and exciting rather than the same ol' titles you've been staring at for the last four weeks.
Well, lo and behold, we've gathered the most exciting movies and TV shows being added to America's most popular streaming service, straight from Netflix themselves.
"Rocky" fans will be pumped to know that the first five boxing flicks (sorry, "Rocky Balboa" fans) will be added August 1, joining other '70s, '80s, and '90s movie favorites "Face/Off" (slow-motion doves!), "Mad Max" (apocalyptic leather!), "Spice World" (spice up your life!), "The Birdcage" (Calista Flockhart was in this, »

And today, we have a trailer for the company's "Mercenaries" movie, starring Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), Vivica A Fox (Kill Bill), and Brigitte Nielsen (Rocky IV), who's an ex-wife of Sylvester Stallone.

There are certain eternal questions in life that I doubt we’ll ever find an answer to. Who was Jack The Ripper? What happened on the Mary Celeste? How have there been five Resident Evil movies? And the question we’re going to look at now, why do they make kids' cartoons out of very adult movies?
In some ways it makes sense. As a kid, there are very few moments more exciting than watching an ultra-gory action film or a dodgy sex comedy that you know you’re not supposed to be watching. Everyone knows this, the studios especially. But surely they can’t be that blatant about it? You can’t make a show for kids based on RoboCop! Have you seen RoboCop? Won’t somebody please think of the children?
I met up for coffee with the man who plays H in Joanna Hogg's Exhibition, to talk about his work as a first time actor, Cary Grant improvising for Leo McCarey with Irene Dunne in The Awful Truth, Alain Delon with Maurice Ronet interpreting Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley in Purple Noon, and his newfound appreciation for the Grudge Match antics between Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone. Liam Gillick talked parallel lives, what cinema means to contemporary artists, and how it felt to become material. Robert Bresson and Hermann Hesse were assigned as homework by Hogg to prepare him for his role opposite Viv Albertine's D in Exhibition.

We're half-way through the final season of HBO's "True Blood," so this is as good a time as any for a celebratory Comic-Con send-off. Saturday's (July 26) Ballroom 20 panel is being moderated by the same guy who has moderated nearly all of the previous "True Blood" panels, so... I guess we know what to expect! Anyway, it's one vampire to another, as I just wrapped my live-blog for "The Vampire Diaries." Woo. 5:04 p.m. We begin with a clip reel of "True Blood" stars saying "Good-bye." And now they're going to do it in person. 5:06 p.m. Our panel: Nathan Parsons, The Lovely Deborah Ann Woll, Nelsan Ellis, Carrie Preston, Chris "Comic-Con Virgin" Bauer, Anna Camp, Brian Buckner, Kristin Bauer Van Straten, Rutina Wesley, Sam Trammell, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin. The loudest reaction, by a wide margin, was for Kristin Bauer van Straten, if you're curious. 5:07 p. »

Washington, July 26: 'The Expendables 3' has been leaked nearly a month before its official release on piracy sites, which could be a real problem for distributor Lionsgate.
The upcoming movie, which was co-written by Sylvester Stallone, was downloaded over 100,000 times within a day, the Verge reported.
The film had been already attached to a single torrent by over 66,000 people, and if the leak proved to be a major crisis, the film's production company, Nu Image, could sue torrent pirates. (Ani) »

The one-time action movie sidekick and Hollywood's favourite funny girl, Bullock has gradually refashioned herself as a bona fide A-lister thanks to her Oscar-winning turn in The Blind Side and last year's box office smash Gravity.
With such an eclectic back catalogue it's hard to single out any one movie. With that in mind, Digital Spy opened up the floor to staff to pose one simple question: What's your favourite Sandra Bullock movie? Here are the results...
Emma Dibdin, Features Editor - The Net
In the interest of full disclosure, I will say that it's been a good ten years since I last watched The Net. Viewing it now, in the cold light of the 21st century, it has not dated well. But aside from being hugely entertaining with a plot that falls just the right side of ludicrous, »
Thankfully, Hercules is not an origin film. Though it is about the titular hero from Greek myth, The Legend of Hercules (2014) from earlier this year already took that approach so it is just as well. Here, the fabled strong-man (Dwayne Johnson) has already performed all but one of his legendary labors when the story opens.
The newHercules was directed by Bret Ratner of Rush Hour (1998) fame and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) infamy. The screenplay was written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spillotopoulus. This is the former’s first feature film. The latter has primarily worked on Disney animated films like Cinderella III: A Twist in Time (2007). The storyline the screenplay is based on is a comic by Steve Moore. You might be thinking that this combination of folks behind the camera is a bit like the “potpourri” category on Jeopardy, and you would not be wrong – sounds weird, could be awful. »

In what is sure to be the most notorious case of piracy since the early leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine five years ago, the Sylvester Stallone-led action blockbuster The Expendables 3 has leaked online, weeks before its release and even its world premiere here in London at the start of next month.
The sequel started appearing on torrent sites on Wednesday, with downloads starting to spike yesterday, and piracy analytics estimate that the film had been downloaded 189,052 times as of 6pm Et Thursday, within twenty-four hours of it landing online.
Whereas Origins was a rough copy of the movie, it’s believed that The Expendables 3 is a DVD-quality copy, which is sure to fuel the rate at which it gets downloaded in the coming weeks even further as fans of the franchise clamour to torrent sites to get an early viewing.

Once upon a time, Luc Besson was a kind of anomaly. A popular director from France whose visually ravishing films featured both expertly made action scenes and doses of dreamy lyricism, he transcended cultural boundaries. Back then, of course, films like Subway, La Femme Nikita, and Léon: The Professional stood in sharp contrast to movies starring macho men like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. Even his sci-fi action epic The Fifth Element, with its poetic flourishes and offbeat sense of fun, was nothing like the sci-fi blockbusters Hollywood churned out.Over the years, Besson has become a successful producer of more bread-and-butter hits like the Taken and Transporter franchises, but now, with the Scarlett Johansson sci-fi flick Lucy, he returns to the world of stylized, lyrical action. Besson takes an enticingly silly premise — Lucy (Johansson) is a hapless drug mule who accidentally ingests a powerful new drug that allows her »

A copy of The Expendables 3—the latest in a series of all-star action movies starring major Hollywood figures like Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, and Jason Statham, among others—leaked online Wednesday on various BitTorrent piracy websites. The film has been downloaded nearly 200,000 times since it leaked, according to Variety.
Movies frequently leak online, but the Expendables 3 scenario is a big deal for two reasons. First of all, it leaked before the movie hit theaters—three weeks before its scheduled premiere, to be exact. And secondly, the quality of the leak is unusually high. The earliest movie leaks are usually “cam” copies, »

A DVD-quality copy of actioner “The Expendables 3,” starring Sylvester Stallone, has been downloaded via piracy sites more than 189,000 times over a 24-hour period — three weeks ahead of the U.S. premiere.
The leak of the film on the Internet ahead of its theatrical debut, an unusually rare occurrence, could dampen box office for “Expendables 3.” It’s also worth noting that the target demo for the movie is young males, who are the biggest users of illegal file-sharing services.
With 21 days left to go before the Aug. 15 premiere, the number of illegal downloads of “Expendables 3″ will certainly soar into the millions.
Lionsgate, which is distributing the movie, declined to comment. The original source of the pirated copy is unclear; user comments posted on piracy websites indicate the rip is genuine.
Pirated copies of “Expendables 3″ began cropping up on torrent-sharing sites Wednesday and downloads started to spike Thursday, according to data provided by piracy-analytics firm Excipio. »

This morning the internet is abuzz with word that a high-quality version of the upcoming blockbuster action sequel The Expendables 3 has somehow leaked online. While we here at Flickering Myth don’t condone piracy or illegal downloading in any way, this is now very much in the public domain, and is perhaps the most high profile leak to happen over recent years.
With Comic-Con in full swing in the Us, the news that a major film, which is being represented at the festival, has leaked online before its world bow will be a massive blow to distributors Lionsgate, who were hoping this would be a decent moneymaker for them. Whether it affects the film’s cinema release and its box office taking remains to be seen.
There hasn’t been this high-profile a film leak since X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, when a work-print of the film, which was finished bar some missing CGI, »

Akshay Kumar is synonymous as ‘Khiladi’ in Bollywood. Having starred in a plethora of films with ‘Khiladi’ in the title, Akki seems to have inspired even the ‘Khiladi’ of Hollywood – Sylvester Stallone. The Indian Distributors of the upcoming movie – Expendables 3 have decided to re-christen the movie as 14 Khiladi in the dubbed Hindi version. However, this is not the only thing they have in common.
