11 Facts About ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ on 15th Anniversary (Photos)

1 December 2016 12:09 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After 15 years, the A-list cast of “Ocean’s Eleven” has remarkably retained their star power. Coming off Oscar noms for “Traffic” and “Erin Brockovich,” director Steven Soderbergh chose to make a movie “with no social value whatsoever,” but it has proven to have more value than anyone first gave it credit for.  TheWrap has teamed up with IMDb to share 11 enthralling facts about the film. Bruce Willis was originally cast, but ultimately decided to bow out. “By the time I got to it, all the good stuff was done and I wanted to play one of the gang,” Willis said in 2000.

Joe Carnahan Talks Death Wish And Wheelman

1 December 2016 10:09 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If writer-director-producer Joe Carnahan has a trademark, it’s grit. The filmmaker does ‘gritty’ on a level quite unlike anybody else currently in the business. One of his earliest efforts, from 1998, is literally called Blood, Guts, Bullets And Octane – which gives a pretty good indication of the style for which this artist shoots. In that respect, his latest comments on two current projects are both unsurprising and reassuring – as he spoke to Collider about Death Wish, and Wheelman.

The subject of Death Wish might have been a sore one, but Carnahan clearly took a diplomatic approach when addressing the project. It’s a script that he wrote as a re-working of the classic Charles Bronson film, but which saw him ultimately part ways with MGM over the direction in which the studio wanted to take the film. Joe Carnahan is not giving up on his version of the story, though, »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Trollhunters” Season 1 (available December 23)

Why Should I Watch It? Two big reasons: First, the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” Guillermo del Toro, created “Trollhunters,” an animated event series about a teenager who discovers a mystical amulet that unveils a secret civilization of trolls beneath his hometown. If the Oscar nominee himself isn’t enough, there’s another creative force — in addition to the impressive voice cast of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Charlie Saxton — to pay attention to: Said teenager is voiced by Anton Yelchin, in what’s being billed his final role. After debuting two episodes at New York Comic-Con in October, del Toro said he never even discussed replacing Yelchin. “We didn’t go into a meeting,” del Toro said. “We didn’t have a conference. […] He was a great guy to work with, he was proud of what he did, we were proud of what he did. »

Joe Carnahan still have plans for his abandoned Death Wish script

30 November 2016 5:44 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

MGM's remake of Charles Bronson's Death Wish has certainly had its ups and downs over the years; Joe Carnahan (The Grey) was originally tapped to write and direct the remake, but when the studio began pushing for a more action-oriented story as well as putting Bruce Willis in the lead role, Carnahan walked, but not before sending off a rather harshly worded e-mail to MGM president...

Joe Carnahan Hasn’t Given Up on His ‘Death Wish’ Script

30 November 2016 12:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Writer-director Joe Carnahan (Narc) exited the Death Wish remake over creative differences. He wrote the lead role with his frequent collaborator Frank Grillo (The Grey) in mind, but Paramount and MGM insisted on Bruce Willis starring in the film. That idea didn’t fly with Carnahan, so he went on to pursue other projects. Eli Roth (Knock Knock) eventually ended up in the director’s chair, but Carnahan has […]

Rob Reiner’s incredible directing hot streak

29 November 2016 1:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Nov 30, 2016

From Spinal Tap and The Princess Bride to Misery and A Few Good Men: we revisit director Rob Reiner's incredible hot streak...

On the rare occasions where we’re let out of our shed, and allowed to go and sit in places that serve beverages, the topic of conversation has a habit of veering towards movies. One regular subject is directing hot streaks. That is the filmmakers who had a run of terrific movie after terrific movie. Within half a pint of shandy and some slightly dated crisps, one name has inevitably been cited: Rob Reiner.

With good reason, too. Many directors have hot streaks. What was incredible about the run of films that Reiner enjoyed between 1984 and 1994 was that the films not only enjoyed acclaim, but they tended to be successful too. Furthermore, Reiner wasn’t tying himself to an individual genre. He zipped »

Dune: Fan-Casting Legendary's New Reboot

23 November 2016 10:27 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Legendary Pictures having bought the rights to Frank Herbert's Dune series with plans to develop a new movie (and possibly television series) our resident Dune fanatics on the site, Garrett and Jordan, sit down to discuss which actors they'd love to see cast in the upcoming projects.  Come inside to see their picks and add your own!  

When news about Legendary buying up Dune rights broke earlier this week, reactions around the Cinelinx crew were...subdued.  To be fair, the Dune franchise in terms of adaptations don't have the best track record and it's best representation is a Sci-Fi mini-series that you can barely find on DVD these days.  

As such, Garrett and I found ourselves quietly geeking out to each other, which prompted a slew of ideas on who we think should bring our favorite characters to life in the new adaptation (which hopefully actually happens this »

Die Hard screens Thursday December 1st at 7:00pm at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, Mo 63143) as part of the ‘A’ Film Series “Culture Shock”

Die Hard (1988) is one of the best and most iconic action films from Hollywood.

Movie Review: The lazy Life On The Line places John Travolta back on the grid

15 November 2016 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

On a broad scale, the producers of mostly VOD releases like Life On The Line don’t have much to answer for, because their movies don’t often add up to much beyond a way for aging and/or cash-strapped movie stars to extend their leading-man (or lady, but usually man) years a little longer. But these indulgences, while essentially harmless, do their part to chip away at better movies. An older star like John Travolta (or Bruce Willis, or Wesley Snipes, or any number of others) should be well into the character actor portion of his career about now, and Travolta briefly seemed to be heading in that direction back in 2012 when he took a supporting role in Oliver Stone’s Savages. It hasn’t really taken, in part because he’s been lured into a series of thrillers seemingly designed to simulate his glory years from inside »
