Max Steel: first international trailer

22 August 2016 11:14 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

Mattel action figure and superhero Max Steel gets his first feature film this year. Here's the first trailer to prove it...

If such disparate movies as Robosapien, Battleship and Jem And The Holograms have anything in common, it's that they all prove that not every movie based on a toy or board game can be a roaring success like Michael Bay's Transformers franchise. Bay's robot action movies may be bullet-proof when it comes to reviews, but audiences don't always turn out in huge numbers to see a film based on a familiar name. 

This might explain why, following a development period which began way back in 2009, the marketing for Max Steel feels rather apologetic. Based on Mattel's 90s line of action figures, the movie's an origin story about Max McGrath (Ben Winchell), a young man with extraordinary powers of speed and strength.

International Trailer Hits For Max Steel

22 August 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The first international trailer for the upcoming live-action Max Steel film has gone online. The film stars Ben WinchellAna VillafañeMaria Bello, Molly McGrath, and Andy Garcia.

Have a look the international trailer below.

Max Steel is an in-depth origin story packed with captivating characters and fast-paced action. The plot chronicles the adventures of 16-year-old Max McGrath and his mother, who have just moved back to Copper Canyon, the town in which Max’s scientist father died in a mysterious accident shortly after Max was born.

As Max adjusts to his new school, things get complicated when his body starts to generate strange energy flare-ups that he can't control. At first a confusing mix of inconvenient and exhilarating, this unpredictable power eventually grows too intense for Max to handle, causing him to distance himself from those around him including the girl he likes, Sofia. Eventually the energy pushes him »

Max Steel Trailer Brings the Iconic Mattel Toy to Life

22 August 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in July 2014, five new photos were released for Max Steel, along with commentary from director Stewart Hendler. At the time, the movie was set to be released in 2015, but that was the last we've heard from this adaptation, until now. Today we have the first international trailer for Max Steel, starring Ben Winchell as the title character, and the movie has been given an October 21 release date.

While no reason was given for the movie's delay, its new release date falls during one of the busiest weekends of the year. As of now, there are six other movies already slated to open in wide release. Paramount will roll out Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, along with Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween, Focus' A Monster Calls, 20th Century Fox's Keeping Up With the Joneses, Universal's Ouija: Origin of Evil and PureFlix's I'm Not Ashamed. Also opening that weekend »

First International Trailer for Delayed Sci-Fi 'Max Steel' Toy Adaptation

22 August 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Protect him. He's the only thing that matters." Originally scheduled for release in 2015, this latest sci-fi toy adaptation is now arriving in theaters October 2016. The first international trailer from Japan has arrived online for the Max Steel movie, about the adventures of teenager Max McGrath, played by Ben Winchell, and his alien companion Steel. The film also features Josh Brener, Ana Villafane, Andy Garcia, Maria Bello and Mike Doyle. Since this trailer isn't cut for Us audiences, it seems a bit jittery, jumping right into the action and showing some of the more sci-fi heavy scenes without much context. It looks like he merges with this alien thing to become "Max Steel", and must fight off the bad guys after them. Doesn't look so bad. Here's the first international trailer for Stewart Hendler's Max Steel movie, found on YouTube: Max Steel is directed by Stewart Hendler (Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn »

‘The Untouchables’: Brian De Palma’s Definitive Prohibition-Era Drama

2 August 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Prohibition’s legacy will always be a period of nearly unprecedented crime. What began as an experiment meant to cure the social and moral ills of a beleaguered nation turned into a reason for the worst of human nature to run wild in the streets. Deception, corruption, violence, and vice ruled the day. As with any such moment in history, certain figures became elevated to the level of myth, and totems from the time became cultural touchstones that would endure for ages. Al Capone. Elliot Ness. Tommy guns. Fedoras. Each of these brings up a specific idea in the mind of the populace and can, by itself, set the imagination on fire.

Who better, then, to create the definitive modern tale of the Prohibition Era than the director who has turned so many other people and items into pop culture totems? Brian De Palma has spun gold out of the »

Ghostbusters reboot crosses $150 million worldwide

1 August 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s still splitting opinions three weeks after its release, but Ghostbusters is still pulling in the cash.

Facing stiff competition from Star Trek Beyond in its second week, The Secret Life of Pets still pulling in obscene numbers and newcomers Jason Bourne and Bad Moms, Ghostbusters dropped a further 54% to earn $9.8 million domestically. This brings its domestic haul to $106 million, which is more than some experts figured.

The film is also open in most of its major territories now, which has added another $52 million, giving it a worldwide total of $158 million. With a production budget of $144 million and a rumoured marketing budget of $100 million, this is quite the blow of Sony and a lack of Chinese release will see Ghostbusters struggle to turn a profit.

Director Paul Feig has said in interviews that Sony expected no less than $500 million worldwide.

Next week the competition gets stiffer as Suicide Squad »

HBO Comedy Ballers Lands Season 3 Order

28 July 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Spencer Strasmore is a go-getter – and that never-say-die attitude has clearly proved infectious at HBO. Two weeks into the show’s sophomore run, the network has announced plans to renew Ballers for a third season, ensuring Strasmore’s career as an astute financial manager stretches long into 2017.

Set against the sun-kissed streets of Miami, it is the seemingly omnipresent Dwayne Johnson that plays the part of Spencer Strasmore. As an ex-football player himself, Johnson’s charismatic lead knows a thing or two about navigating the lavish lifestyles of current and former superstars, but as is the case in the current season, Strasmore finds himself going toe-to-toe with Andy Garcia’s hot new player in town.

As Deadline reports, Ballers season 2 is off to a commendable start, with the premiere episode pulling in upwards of 5.7 million viewers. This, coupled with the star power of Dwayne Johnson – who leads a cast that comprises Rob Corrdry, »

HBO Orders A Third Season Of "Ballers"

28 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following its second season premiere earlier this month, HBO has given the green light to a third season of its Dwayne Johnson-led comedy series "Ballers".

Looking at the whirlwind lifestyles and real-life problems of former and current football players, Johnson plays an ex-superstar who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today's players in sun-soaked Miami.

Stephen Levinson created the series which scored an average 9.1 million viewers in gross audience over its first season - HBO's biggest half-hour in six years.

Much of the cast from the second season will likely return. Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, London Brown, Arielle Kebbel, Dule Hill, Richard Schiff and Andy Garcia also star.

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Ballers’ Renewed for Season 3 on HBO

28 July 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s comedy “Ballers” has been renewed for a third season at HBO, Variety has confirmed.

Johnson broke the news via his Instagram.

While not necessarily a critical darling, “Ballers” finished out its first season as the network’s most-watched comedy in six years, once viewership from all airings and streaming were tallied. According to HBO, 8.8 million people watched each episode within seven days. The Season 1 finale garnered 1.43 million viewers in Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day count.

In its first two episodes of Season 2, ratings have settled into the 1.3-million range in L+Sd, with a .6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, with 5.7 million having checked out the second season premiere since July 17. While that kind of viewership lift through delayed viewing and streaming could be troublesome for ad-supported networks, since HBO’s business depends on subscribership, when people watch is less important than the mere fact of them watching (and subscribing).

Ballers” continues to engage on a real-world level with the folks who circulate around football culture — the journalists, the entourages, the agents. Because those who play for the NFL might technically be considered the most baller of all to the outside, but on the inside, the real baller-ing may just be found elsewhere.

But as always, here’s what really matters…

The Rock was still feeling his wounds from last week’s scuffle with Terrell Suggs. And there’s nothing so un-baller as finding out your Vicodin prescription has run out – and that your doctor is deeply concerned about prescribing you more pills.

The Rock might not need the pills, but he does need the emotional reinforcement of taking down a man who he once trusted but is now no longer a hero. We »

Sony executive has “no doubt” that we’ll see a Ghostbusters sequel

19 July 2016 4:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it wasn’t quite the unmitigated disaster many were predicting, with Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot opening to a decent enough $46 million in its domestic opening weekend (albeit in second place behind The Secret Life of Pets). International takings from a few major markets including the UK and Australia weren’t too strong though, adding just $18.1 million for a worldwide debut of $64.1 million.

Given its net production budget of $144 million, and marketing costs, THR estimates that the film will need to earn $375 – $400 million to break even – something that looks highly unlikely at this point, particularly with China refusing it a release and Star Trek Beyond and Ice Age: Collision Course set to cut into its audience.

Still, according to Sony’s Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution, the studio is very happy with the result, and he has no doubt we’ll see the gang back together for a sequel, »

Mark Wahlberg Says the NFL Pushed Back Against ‘Ballers,’ Telling Him ‘You Can’t Do This’

18 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the NFL doesn’t count itself among the fans of “Ballers.” Mark Wahlberg, who serves as an executive producer on the sports-themed HBO dramedy starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, said during an appearance on Espn’s “Mike & Mike” that he’s received several complaints from the league, as well as assertions that “You can’t do this.”

Movie Review – Ghostbusters (2016)

18 July 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ghostbusters, 2016.

Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Neil Casey, Andy Garcia, Michael Kenneth Williams, Charles Dance and Chris Hemsworth.

Synopsis:

Erin Gilbert, a disgraced physics teacher who grew up believing in ghosts, falls in with her estranged school friend Abby Yates and helps form the ‘Ghostbusters’, the only team able to prevent a spectral apocalypse befalling New York City…

Rarely has there been such an advance furore surrounding a movie as we’ve seen around the reboot of Ghostbusters. It was always going to be a contentious move. Two of the most beloved movies of the 1980’s (well, one at least!), synonymous blockbusters that help define that decade, which fans had long hoped may continue with a forever gestating third movie featuring original stars Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Harold Ramis & Sigourney Weaver. Nobody quite expected Hollywood to push the reboot button, »

Few shows are as hyper-focused on masculinity as “Ballers.” The Stephen Levinson-created HBO comedy looks at life as a professional football player — and what happens when you stop playing. While ostensibly an ensemble, the show’s ensemble is led by Dwayne Johnson, whose portrayal of financial manager Spencer Strasmore provides unique insight into the pride and power that drives a certain type of man.
