Stx, Vol. 2: Faith That ‘Molly’s Game,’ ‘Valerian,’ and Filmmakers’ Visions Will Build A Major Studio

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After two years, Stx Entertainment has “Bad Moms,” “The Gift” … and more than a half-dozen other titles that range from near misses (“Desierto”) to outright flops (“The Bye Bye Man”). Never mind, said motion picture group chairman Adam Fogelson at his studio’s CinemaCon presentation Tuesday. He’s more than confident that his studio’s next chapter — or as he called it, “Stx 2.0” — is filled with hitmakers.

A sequel, “A Bad Moms Christmas,” goes into production next month with a November 3 release date.

Fogelson noted that of the 10 movies Stx has released in 19 months, five have starred or were directed by women. “We have »

Filming begins on 'Speed', the first Chinese TV drama to shoot in Australia

28 March 2017 3:57 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

$2.5m production underway in Adelaide and surrounding area.

The first ever Chinese TV drama to shoot in Australia has begun filming in Adelaide.

15 episodes of Speed, a 32-part Chinese TV and online series, are scheduled to shoot in South Australia over three weeks.

The $2.5m shoot will employ around 50 local crew, alongside 120 cast and crew from China.

From Beijing-based Chinese broadcaster Ciwen Media, Speed follows the journey of an underground street racer who goes on to race professionally.

The production will be serviced by 57 Films, which faced competition from producers in Canada, Italy and the USA to secure the production.

57 Films founder Paul Ryan will be Australian Producer on the series, with Julie Byrne from Triptych Pictures hired as Line Producer.

Ryan said Speed will be one of the largest international TV series to be shot in South Australia.

Why China’s Box Office May Not Save the Film Industry After All — CinemaCon 2017

27 March 2017 4:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Back in October, Dalian Wanda Group chairman Wang Jianlin had to admit that, after years of exponential growth, the China box office was slowing. The numbers proved him right: 2016’s worldwide box office of $38.6 billion rose just 1 percent, mostly because of a drop in China. While 71% of the global box office is international, it’s now North America that’s growing.

Ouch.

If those are our bragging rights, they come at a very high cost. After several years of massive, 30 percent-40 percent growth, China seemed like the answer to the nagging problem of North America’s thoroughly mature theatrical market. DVDs might be dead, theater chains aren’t growing, admissions are stagnant — but hey, China has more than 1.3 billion people! And suddenly, “Now You See Me” was a global franchise.

Now, the 2016 box office decline in China ($6.6 billion, down from $6.8 billion in 2015) may not bode well for the studios’ current »

Into the Badlands Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Force of Eagle's Claw

26 March 2017 8:36 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

One minute you're watching a martial arts fight-fest, and before you know it, a Road Buddy movie breaks out!

On Into the Badlands Season 2 Episode 2, Sunny and Bajie have to fight for their lives, but what follows is a very funny take on the mismatched, buddy, road movie trope.

I really love this season so far, and the main reason is the humor that has come into the plot. 

The whole Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome vibe was in full effect, with the battle between The Engineer's champ Mouse and the chained duo of Sunny and Bajie.

It brought back fond memories of Master Blaster, but with a far deadlier result. 

I was surprised how well Bajie fought, being such a big guy and all. And the constant snarky remarks were totally hilarious.

You could tell Daniel Wu, who plays Sunny, was having a blast, what with all the great facial reactions to Bajie's wisecracks. »

Rush Hour 4 Is Still Happening

24 March 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been almost 10 years since Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) and Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) last joined forces in 2007's Rush Hour 3. Throughout the years, there has been talk of another Rush Hour sequel, but there haven't been any substantial updates in quite some time. During an appearance at the Sun Valley Film Festival, filmmaker Brett Ratner revealed that he thinks this action sequel will happen. Here's what he had to say in a brief statement at the festival, while jokingly revealing a possible title.

"I think it will happen; we're talking to writers. We could call it Grumpy Old Rush Hour."

While the filmmaker wouldn't elaborate more on this sequel to Entertainment Weekly, he may be onto something in regards to the title. While Chris Tucker was still a rising star when the first Rush Hour hit theaters in 1998, the actor is now 44 years of age, while »

Power Rangers – Review

23 March 2017 8:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I didn’t grow up singing “Go, Go Power Rangers!” I didn’t have a favorite ranger. The kid’s TV show turned toy empire was a little after my time, though I did catch parts while channel surfing. At that point I was starting to watch Jackie Chan and 90s action films, so the tepid fight scenes in The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers didn’t quite make an impression. And it’s not like anyone watched the hit series for the character development or acting in the first place.

While Power Rangers borrow the same ideas and similar visuals from the 90s show, the film tries to correct the two elements I just pointed out that the original show lacked. This time around the focus is on the kids and not their stunt doubles in the suits. Five high school kids come together under convenient circumstances one night in a rock quarry. »

Rotten Tomatoes Is ‘The Destruction of Our Business,’ Says Producer/Director Brett Ratner

23 March 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Brett Ratner has a lot of respect and admiration for traditional film critics. However, the renowned director/producer says that the film critic aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes is destroying the film industry.

“The worst thing that we have in today’s movie culture is Rotten Tomatoes,” Ratner said at the Sun Valley Film Festival last week, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. “I think it’s the destruction of our business. I have such respect and admiration for film criticism. When I was growing up film criticism was a real art. And there was intellect that went into that. And you would read Pauline Kael’s reviews, or some others, and that doesn’t exist anymore. Now it’s about a number. A compounded number of how many positives vs. negatives. Now it’s about, ‘What’s your Rotten Tomatoes score?’ And that’s sad, because the Rotten Tomatoes score was »

Great Job, Internet!: The Raid movies are master classes in action filmmaking

20 March 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Raid is one of those action movies that leaves you feeling sort of clammy and exhausted afterward, a gauntlet of intense mano-a-mano encounters between people who are very good with their manos, as well as their feet, swords, knives, tables, doorways, and so on. Action movies of its ilk can feel like an antidote to the hyperactive editing of lower-grade action movies, like, for example, the Taken series, which in one memorable sequence took 15 different shots to show a person jumping over a fence. Here, enjoy:

A thoughtful video essay from Rossatron digs into what makes The Raid’s action sequences so memorable, juxtaposing it up with other examples from Jackie Chan, The Matrix, and Oldboy, and the conclusions are a little surprising. While Rossatron does highlight specific cinematic ingredients to a good fight scene, including planning the shots in advance and not taking 15 shots to show ...

31 Things Only Diehard Beauty and the Beast Fans Know

19 March 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Everett Collection Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney's most timeless classics, but there's a lot about the animated film that you might not have realized. For instance, do you know exactly what kind of animal the Beast was based on? Or his real name? The reboot is absolutely gorgeous and has a few interesting updates, but for now, let's revisit all of the interesting tidbits that make the 1991 film so great. Jackie Chan dubbed the voice of the Beast for Chinese-speaking countries. He provided vocals for both the Beast's speaking and singing parts! Chip originally had only one line. The producers liked 9-year-old actor Bradley Pierce's voice so much that they asked to expand the role. He also wasn't supposed to be a teacup. Early drawings of the character saw him as a music box who could only communicate by his chiming musical notes. Belle's »

Hong Kong goes West - When Hong Kong film makers attempt to break the Western market - part 5

17 March 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

2010’s In my previous article there was a comment regarding a film that I had left out. I apologise in advance if there are any films that I miss out. This may be due to me simply forgetting or just not seeing a particular film. After the Forbidden Kingdom, Jackie Chan would return to Hong Kong to work on Director Derek Yee’s Shinjiku Incident (2009). A total change of pace for Chan, with a purely dramatic role, it seemed it was a step in the right direction for the ageing action star. Unfortunately Chan’s next leading role would be in the family movie The Spy Next Door (2010), which is not only Chan’s poorest American made film, but one of the poorest of his career....

Vital Life Lessons You Can Learn From Action Movies

13 March 2017 6:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Whosoever said that only teachers, lecturers and professors can teach us the real meaning of life, didn’t know about the existence of action movies. Wondering why we say so? Well, skills like hanging from a helicopter, holding to our composure even the enemy tries to demean you and taking violent adventures and escapades head on are a few skills only action movies can teach us. From the likes of Stallone, Lundgren, James Bond to Seagal and Schwarzenegger, these pantheon of great action stars can teach us many great things about life. They are:

You do not need to resort to violence to blow your enemy away: Taking cue from the body of work of the lovably dangerous Jackie Chan, resorting to Ak-47s to blow your enemy away isn’t how life works. Just a little bit of martial arts mixed with some heart-stopping stunts and the weakness of »

Filmart: When Jackie Chan Became a Drunken Master at the Box Office

13 March 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

“You think that you’re the only master here? Well, let me tell you, my drunk gods don’t mess around — nobody can fight like they do!” says Jackie Chan in the memorable final showdown in Drunken Master, the 1978 movie that launched the action-comedy star into mainstream success. 

Marking choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping's directorial debut, the film stars Chan as an immature young man who attempts to thwart an assassin by mastering the Zui Quan (or “drunken fist”) fighting style — meaning Chan’s usually precise kung fu moves and elaborate stunts are drenched (sometimes literally) in alcohol.

‘The Belko Experiment’ Trailer Gets the Lego Treatment — Watch

13 March 2017 1:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After premiering at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival, “The Belko Experiment” is about to make its theatrical debut. But before that, the trailer for Greg McLean’s action-horror-thriller has gotten a Lego makeover. According to Lego enthusiast Huxley Berg, the film’s writer/producer James Gunn, himself, tasked him with recreating the trailer using the popular interlocking plastic bricks. Back in November, Berg put together a Lego trailer for the Gunn-directed “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which got the director’s approval.
