Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »
The actor Paul Walker, who found success starring in the popular car-racing franchise, has died in an automobile accident in Los Angeles aged 40
• Paul Walker: a career in clips
The actor was travelling as a passenger in a new Porsche when his friend who was driving - who has been described as an "experienced driver" - lost control of the vehicle and collided with a street light, and then a tree.
The La County Sheriff's department has confirmed that two people died in a collision in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles, at 3:30pm on Saturday, but Walker's death was confirmed by his representatives on his official Facebook page, and then by his publicist, »

Among the entertainment bizzers expressing their sorrow over his death were “Fast & Furious” co-stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “Fast & Furious 7″ director James Wan, Walker’s “Flags of Our Fathers” co-star Ryan Philippe, choreographer/producer/director Adam Shankman, Ludacris, Todd Lieberman, who produced the Walker-starring movie “The Lazarus Project,” Tyrese and actor Michael Chiklis.
“Fast & Furious” star Vin Diesel posted a photo of the pair on his #therealvindiesel Instagram account, saying “Brother I will miss you very much. I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace.”
All my strength, love & faith to the Walker family during this heartbreaking time. We find our strength.. in his light. »

Over the course of his 25-year-plus acting career — which began with small TV roles when he was just a teenager in the mid-’80s — Paul Walker collected many friends and admirers in the industry. The Fast and Furious series star, who really made a name for himself in the late ’90s with movies like Varsity Blues and She’s All That, died Saturday afternoon in a car accident at age 40, and online reaction poured in from his acting friends and peers.

This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.
This year saw two films attempt to take down the White House, with the most recent being disaster master Roland Emmerich's White House Down. Although he famously destroyed the entire Presidential residence in one blow in 1996's Independence Day, Emmerich treats the title structure with much more reverence and care this time around. (Don't worry, he still beats the hell out of it.) Equally bloodied and bruised are White House Down's heroic duo, played by Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, who must take down the threat inside the Oval Office while rescuing the hostages trapped inside. It's one of Emmerich's most entertaining films to date, and now that it's available on Blu-ray, you can check it out for yourself in your very own home. Hit the jump for my review. Feature Although Emmerich may be best known for obliterating the White House, he takes his time doing so in White House Down. »

We take a look back at the way the web was used to make The Blair Witch Project a hit, and the era of viral film marketing it began...
In October 1997, a small group of young actors and filmmakers emerged from a state park in Maryland with approximately 19 hours of rough, handheld video footage. Those grainy images, edited down to around 90 minutes over the course of eight months, would eventually become The Blair Witch Project, a $22,000 movie which went on to make more than $248m at the box office.
The Blair Witch Project wasn't the first found-footage film ever made, and neither was it the only such film released in the late 90s. It certainly wasn't the first piece of American horror to pass itself off as a true story, either - Edgar Allan Poe was passing tales off as fact in the 19th century. »

Here's a disappointing, but not surprising story. Duncan Jones is currently hard at work on this third directorial outing, the big budget blockbuster take on the videogame Warcraft. It's due in cinemas at the end of 2015, and it sees the Moon and Source Code director with an awful lot of work to undertake.
Perhaps inevitably then, it's now meant that he's had to drop a terrific-looking project that he'd been attached to for a while. For Jones had been attached to a biopic of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, that was going by the title of Fleming.
Director Neil Labute said it himself – it isn’t easy getting a movie made – but, should one of his impending projects get a green light, we could have a particularly unique action hero on the way – Melissa Leo. The Toll is penned by newcomer Jane Henderson and tells the tale of a New Jersey tollbooth worker who winds up responsible for thwarting a terrorist attack threatening the entire east cost. That tollbooth worker? Not Jason Statham, Daniel Craig, Tom Cruise or some other familiar saves-the-day type. Should The Toll come to fruition, Leo would be the one to go head-to-head with the enemy. Hit the jump for more details. When asked about the status of The Toll during the press day for his upcoming film, Some Velvet Morning, Labute admitted: “That’s really just discussions. It’s a script that I thought was interesting. Melissa Leo, I’ve worked with her on stage. »

Hollywood is positioning 2015 to be the single biggest year for movies in the history of the medium, with The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: Episode VII, Batman Vs. Superman, Mission: Impossible 5 and Bond 24 all arriving within months of each other. But standing in the way are the twelve months of 2014. While the New Year doesn't quite pack the heated punch of 2015, it does bring some highly anticipated fare that we simply can't wait to see. From plenty of superheroes, to evolved apes, to giant robots, to teenage vampires, and even the return of Dominic Toretto, here are the 14 movies guaranteed to get us standing in front of that box office window buying a ticket before 2015 does its ultimate damage on our savings account.
Quebec film commissioner Hans Fraikin confirms to The Calgary Herald that Singer and some of the cast and crew will be back to "shoot some extra scenes" for the project with this new block of filming set to take several weeks.
Filming on the latest instalment in the X-Men franchise began in Montreal in mid-April and wrapped in late August. The paper also claims the project is "the second-most expensive movie ever produced by 20th Century Fox, behind only Avatar."
Fraikin is also championing Montreal as the location to shoot Fox's "Independence Day" sequel which is expected to go before the cameras in 2015. The film's director Roland Emmerich is also said to be championing that the production take place in Montreal. »

We've been waiting a long time for a sequel to Independence Day and now it looks like we'll be waiting a little longer...
On the heels of yesterday's news of other movies being pushed back by the studio, 20th Century Fox has announced that Independence Day 2 (or ID Forever Part I) will now be released on July 3rd, 2016 instead of its original date of July 1st, 2015.
It's new release date means the movie will be unleashed almost 20 years to the day that Roland Emmerich's 1996 blockbuster wowed audiences.
The first movie was a mega success and brought in $817 million worldwide.
Although he is unconfirmed, there have been several rumours running around that Will Smith won't be returning for the sequel. Dean Devlin said a few months back that there are currently two scripts in place: one that features Captain Steve Hiller and one that doesn't.

Chicago – It’s kind of a light week at the Blu-ray and DVD store (do they still have those now that Blockbuster has closed?). As studios prep a lot of major releases for holiday season, a few titles have been released on Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming services this week that we wanted to highlight, including a decent animated flick, a great foreign one, and a bunch of movies that may interest you but that you should probably avoid.

The best new release of the week is this moving foreign film about a man shattered by the realization that his wife may not be who he’s always thought she was. The revelation brings to the surface the man’s own history and the piece becomes a moving meditation on the crisis in the Middle East and how the past and hidden conflicts are always there, »

The release date of the movie has been pushed back almost a year. The alien invasion sequel was supposed to come out on July 3rd, 2015, but it's now set to hit the big screen on July 1st, 2016.
If they don't land Smith they have a plan B in place as they have two scripts for the film to shoot from, one that includes Smith's character and one that doesn't.
There's still no information on the official plot of the film, but it's safe to assume that the aliens will be back to attack earth. Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan has been in talks to star in the film and will most likely join Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum. »

"Independence Day 2" is coming a little later than expected. Originally set to hit theaters on July 3, 2015, the Roland Emmerich sequel has been pushed back to July 1, 2016. Though no plot specifics for the follow-up have been revealed at this time, Emmerich recently confirmed that two scripts exist for the film - one of which features Will Smith's Captain Steven Hiller and another that doesn't (it's unknown whether the actor will be reprising his role from the original). Other thesps rumored for the sequel include original stars Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum (actually confirmed by Emmerich in a »

The release date for Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel has been pushed back by almost a year. Whereas aliens were set to once again attack the earth and destroy our houses of government beginning July 3, 2015, they’ll now have to wait all the way until July 1, 2016—because, obviously, a movie called Independence Day can't very well come out some other time of year. The move could be both a good and bad thing for the movie and its director, who apparently still isn’t really sure whether or not Will Smith is going to »
The sequel to Independence Day, titled ID Forever Part I, has now been pushed back a year to July 1st, 2016, according to Entertainment Weekly. The new release date falls just two days shy of the original movie's 20th anniversary.
20 Movies You Can't Even Believe Are 20 Years Old
The movie will take place, fittingly, two decades after the conclusion of the first one, when alien reinforcements show up in response to a distress call sent out before Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum finished defeating the original invaders. The new story will »
20th Century Fox is moving the release date for the first of its 2 announced Independence Day sequels back a year, from July 3, 2015, to July 1, 2016, which would be almost exactly 20 years since the first film's July 3, 1996 theatrical debut. A move of a few months is typical, but an entire year isn't. Our last post on this was in September, when it was rumored that Michael B. Jordan was in contention for "a major role" in Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequels. Emmerich is said to have met with several upstarts, and Jordan was on his short list for the Fox project, although no offer had been made at the time. But Jordan is/was definitely »

Studios have been pushing and shoving one another (figuratively-speaking… as far as we know), in order to secure an ideal position in Summer 2015, which looks to be the end-all of Hollywood blockbuster derbies. We’ve already seen Disney move two prized ponies – Star Wars: Episode VII and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – back, in order to give them more breathing room during their opening weekends; not to mention, provide them with more time for development (so as to ensure a respectable final product).
