Movie Review – Geostorm (2017)

20 October 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Geostorm, 2017.

Directed by Dean Devlin.

Starring Gerard Butler, Katheryn Winnick, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia, Zazie Beetz, and Ed Harris.

Synopsis:

When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate start to attack Earth, it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.

There is absolutely no reason for Geostorm to exist. It’s bunkum and plays like The Day After Tomorrow for those who feel intellectually inferior to Roland Emmerich. It’s Armageddon for those who thought it subtle, 2012 for those with a hankering for trashy political intrigue, it’s an end of the world pic that demands the audience to beckon for the end of days. It’s dull, imbecilic, grossly misjudged, yet momentarily, as towers fall, great floods thrash ravines and fires burn through snow, it distracts – briefly – from an impending doom »

Check Out This Jurassic Park 2 Trailer from an Alternate Universe

19 October 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Given this is an alternate trailer in an alternate universe where Bruce Willis would get to take on a dinosaur it’s easy to cut it some slack. Because quite honestly who doesn’t want to see Bruce Willis take on a dinosaur? The Tears of the Sun footage is pretty intense, but even as rough as that movie got the Seal team wouldn’t have the slightest idea what was coming at them once the multi-ton T-Rex was crashing down in front of them. With all the firepower they had between them the group might have have stood a chance against a

Fan Creates ‘Jurassic Park’ Sequel We All Would Have Paid To See

16 October 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We don’t usually post that many fan trailers here on the site, but we thought we’d make an exception for this one. A hugely talented fan has put the following trailer together for a potential Jurassic Park II using footage from the original 1993 movie and what looks to be some from the Bruce Willis-led Tears Of The Sun, his hugely under-rated 2003 movie, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Watch the Jurassic Park 2 fan trailer in the player at the bottom of the post.

Pitched at what appears to be Jurassic Park by way of Predator, the trailer alludes to a film we’d certainly stand in line to see.

Of course, back in 1997 we were ‘treated’ to a very lackluster sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, adapted from the source material by Michael Crichton. The Lost World: Jurassic Park, far from set the world on alight, even though it »

The Evil Within 2 Review

15 October 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I arrived at Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within about two years after its release, having grown tired of survival horror and the staleness of the genre as a whole. However, when I finally settled in for a playthrough, I couldn’t let it go. Roughly fifteen hours later, I’d guided embattled hero Detective Sebastian Castellanos through a series of terrifying encounters and remarkably freaky scenarios inside one of the most hellish mental hospitals in video game history. It was a grueling experience, complete with sweaty hands and muffled screams, but it reminded me of why, exactly, I’d spent so much time with Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and their ilk over the years.

Naturally, I had high expectations for The Evil Within 2, especially considering the team responsible for the first outing — writer and Troma vet Trent Haaga, in particular — was returning for yet another horrifying go-around. Thankfully, the »

Zach Gilford Shares What He Thinks His 'Friday Night Lights' Character Is Doing Today (Exclusive)

12 October 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Six years after Friday Night Lights went off the air, Zach Gilford still fields questions about the beloved small-town football drama -- and he’s totally cool with it.

For five seasons, the 35-year-old actor broke America’s collective heart as Matt Saracen, the shy, awkward high schooler-turned-star quarterback of the Dillon Panthers. Gilford admits he doesn’t “think about the character” much, but left the door open to revisit the world once more.

“I’d always be open to it,” Gilford, who stars on YouTube Red’s new original series, Lifeline, tells Et. “If it was a cool, interesting story and it’s not a Christmas special where everyone’s home for Christmas, I’d be interested. I love all those people. I’d love to work with them again. You don’t want to do something cheesy when the original product was so opposite that.”

He jokingly offered up a spinoff idea that never came to fruition »

Anya Taylor-Joy says Glass will be “something really special”

12 October 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the stars of Glass, Anya Taylor-Joy, has that the cast is aware that they are making something special.

Shooting has begun on M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable/Split sequel and one of the film’s stars, who made it over from this year’s Split, is already talking up Glass’ script; full of praise for the material at her disposal.

Joining Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson from Unbreakable, and her Split co-star James McAvoy, Taylor-Joy told the following to HeyUGuys in a brief interview:

“I think we all are very aware that we’re making something really special. M. Night’s done just such an incredible job with the script, that we’re all coming in and elevating our performances every single day. It’s just really fun!”

Glass will see Jackson’s Elijah Price act as an orchestrator, holding secrets important to both Willis’ David Dunn »

‘Death Wish’ remake pushed back to 2018

6 October 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Annapurna Pictures have announced that they are postponing the release, originally set for November 22nd, of Eli Roth’s Death Wish remake, which stars Bruce Willis in the role of Paul Kersey – originally made famous by Charles Brosnan in Michael Winner’s 1974 original.

Based on a screenplay by Joe Carnahan, Death Wish follows Paul Kersey (Willis) whose life is destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. Frustrated the bad guys were not brought to justice for the violence and degradation the thugs inflicted on his family, he starts hunting for the perpetrators himself.

Willis stars in the film alongside Vincent D’Onofrio, Kimberly Elise, Mike Epps, and Elisabeth Shue.

Death Wish is now scheduled for release on March 2nd 2018. »

Bruce Willis’ “Death Wish” reboot has been pushed back from Nov. 22 to March 2.

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures launched a new distribution operation in August, coinciding with the release of Kathryn Bigelow’s historical drama “Detroit,” which will distribute the pic.

Hostel” director Eli Roth helmed the “Death Wish” remake and former MGM co-chairman Roger Birnbaum is producing. The new “Death Wish” also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Kimberly Elise, Mike Epps, and Elisabeth Shue.

Eli Roth’s ‘Death Wish’ Drops Back to 2018

MGM's Death Wish remake is dropping back to 2018. Deadline reports that Eli Roth's Bruce Willis action vehicle will now bow in theaters on March 2 next year, in order to evacuate the crowded Thanksgiving season. Yeah, suuuuure. I'm certain it has nothing to do with the fact that an old white guy just killed 58 people and wounded more than 500, sparking conversations about gun culture, media violence, and toxic masculinity once again. Nah, it's definitely because they don't want to compete with Polaroid, Coco, Chappaquiddick, and Molly’s Game, all of which clearly … »

The Real Reason Bruce Willis Agreed to be on “Friends”

5 October 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It has been a long time since Friends, so a lot of people might not recall that Bruce Willis showed up in three episodes of Season 6 of the sitcom. To be exact, he showed up as a character named Paul Stevens, who happened to have been the father of Elizabeth Stevens, who was Ross’s girlfriend in Season 6. Since Ross was Elizabeth’s professor, Paul was less than pleased by their relationship, which was not helped by the fact that he happened to be rather over-protective of his daughter. Over the course of the three episodes, a fair amount of

M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass adds Disney as a distributor

3 October 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney has joined Universal in distributing Glass, the sequel to Unbreakable by M. Night Shyamalan,

We discovered yesterday that shooting was underway for the much anticipated Split/Unbreakable sequel Glass. And today, both studios involved announced that Universal will handle domestic distribution and Buena Vista International will be orchestrating things overseas.

Shooting for the movie began on Monday in Philadelphia and will see the separate but connected plots of this year’s Split and one of Shyamalan’s most beloved hits, Unbreakable, come together.

Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson will be returning from Unbreakable and James McAvoy – who played the villain in Split – will also be joining in on the fun, along with one the film’s other stars Anya Taylor-Joy.

Fans were over the moon when the announcement for Glass came earlier in the year and will surely be delighted that things seem to be moving forward pretty quickly. »
