The 2014 Action Hero Power Rankings

14 December 2014 10:43 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some years are just great for certain genres, and this year was a great one for action. All across the board were films within different subgenres stepping up and delivering great action set pieces and characters. Consider the shot on the revolving tank gun revealing the totality of carnage in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, or the tight line between insanity and sharp focus with the home invasion scene in The Guest, the shot of Chris Evans plowing through several baddies with an axe in slow motion during Snowpiercer, watching Keanu Reeves dispatching thugs with slick gun-fu in John Wick, or literally any scene from the action opera The Raid 2. Take all that together in the same year (!!!!) and it’s clear to see we’ve been spoiled.

But all that aside, only one person can take the title of 2014’s Action Hero. Action Heroes are like Highlanders, »

Chris Pratt Might Join 'Magnificent Seven' Remake

5 December 2014 7:29 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It seems like Chris Pratt is going to add another famous franchise to his filmography because he is currently in talks to join the cast of The Magnificent Seven remake. Denzel Washington is already attached to the film set to be directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). Talks are still very early -- Pratt would be the second to join the group of seven. 

The original 1960 Old West film, directed by John Sturges, was actually a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. So this new film is technically a remake of a remake (new trend guys!).

Magnificent Seven centered on a group of American gunslingers tasked with the job of protecting a small Mexican village from a group of criminals. What really made the movie cool is that it starred actors like Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson, who would go on to become major movie stars after the release of the film. »

Week in Review: Chris Pratt could join ‘Magnificent Seven’ remake

5 December 2014 6:23 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As if Chris Pratt doesn’t have enough giant tentpole films to deal with as he rockets his way to the A-list, the Guardians of the Galaxy star is now in talks to star in an actual Western, as opposed to a Western with dinosaurs or talking raccoons. Pratt is set to join a remake of Magnificent Seven, currently starring Denzel Washington, directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and written by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side). An original draft of the script was originally being handled by True Detective‘s Nic Pizzolato.

Deadline reported Thursday that signing Pratt could be a big step in actually helping the film get made, with the remaining five cast members still to fall into place. Previously, Tom Cruise was rumored to be the lead, with Matt Damon, Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman reportedly courted to join him. Although Pratt is no done deal either, »

Chris Pratt Looking to Join The Magnificent Seven Western

4 December 2014 3:01 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I'm sure a floodgate of movie offers came rushing in to Chris Pratt after Guardians of the Galaxy came out. This guy is on the road to becoming a huge star. Variety is reporting that the actor is currently in early talks to star alongside Denzel Washington in MGM's remake of the 1960 western, The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven is one of my favorite westerns, and I'm curious to see what this remake would look like. The movie itself is a remake of Seven Samurai. The story basically revolves around seven gunslingers who protect an oppressed Mexican village from a group of outlaws.

The film has been in development at the studio since 2012, and at one point Tom Cruise and Matt Damon were even looking to join the project. The current script was recently reworked by John Lee Hancock and True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto wrote the previous version.
