Six Female Lead Choices Who Would’ve Made ‘Gravity’ a Better Film

17 November 2013 8:39 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As Alfonso Cuaron’s mega-hit Gravity continues to rack up praise and big box office dollars, it’s a good time to take a critical look at the weakest aspect of the film, which is the lead acting performance of Sandra Bullock.

It’s widely known that Cuaron’s first choice, Angelina Jolie, fell through and there were reported meetings with Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, and Natalie Portman among other candidates, before Bullock was ultimately chosen.

These other contenders are clearly talented but they are still part of a group that could easily be called Hollywood Casting 101.

While the film’s financiers would disagree, Gravity is not a film that needed big stars, as the presence of George Clooney and Sandra Bullock is far less a contributor to its enormous success than the film’s suspense thriller concept and visually striking execution.

Obviously, a director on a big-budget »

New Development on ‘Saw VIII’ Adds ‘Saw 3D: The Final Chapter’ to the Fake Horror Finale Hall of Fame

5 November 2013 3:15 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

To say that the Saw franchise was a big success would be something of an understatement. Seven out of the last ten years have seen a new Saw movie get a release, which is a danged impressive feat when you factor in that the original was a pretty low budget affair that was mostly shot in one dirty room, came from a relatively unknown director, and really only featured admittedly awesome but past their sell-by date actors like Carey Elwes, Danny Glover, and Dina Meyer as its stars. By the time Saw VI rolled around, six years of Saw movies in a row was starting to feel like a little bit too many puzzle games and mutilations though, and the box office returns faded slightly as a result. What’s the overseer of a huge horror movie franchise to do once interest in their particular brand of mayhem begins to fade? The »

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Dead in Tombstone'

28 October 2013 10:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

It's tough to approach a low-budget, made-for-dvd horror/western mash-up called Dead in Tombstone with any degree of seriousness these days (anyone seen GallowWalkers?!?) but when the b-movie at hand stars Danny Trejo as a gunslinger brought back from the dead to wreak vengeance on Anthony Michael Hall (with a little help from Dina Meyer), it's only fair to give the flick a fair shake.

  Also Mickey Rourke plays Lucifer. That's probably worth mentioning.   The visually amusing but narratively arid Dead in Tombstone comes from the folks at Universal Home Video and director Roel Reine, who have taken some time off from sequels to 12 Rounds, Death Race, and The Scorpion King to grace the DVD shelves with an original offering. But therein lies the problem: very little about Dead in Tombstone is very original.   By this point Mr. Reine is rather accomplished at getting nice shots, tight edits, and some »

Danny Trejo on 'Dead in Tombstone,' and His Long Career as Hollywood's Go-To Tough Guy

23 October 2013 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's either an indictment of our current crop of action stars (or a reaction to them), but even pushing 70, Danny Trejo is still the go-to bad-ass in Hollywood. Ever since a chance encounter on a movie set landed him his first role, the unlikely leading man has been working steadily (his credits list 15 movies coming out in 2013 alone). And right on the heels of "Machete Kills," the equally unlikely fake-trailer-turned-franchise, the tattooed tough guy also has "Dead in Tombstone" coming out this week on DVD and on demand.

In the supernatural Western, Trejo stars alongside Mickey Rourke, Anthony Michael Hall and Dina Meyer (yes, of "Starship Troopers" fame), where he plays -- what else? -- a ruthless anti-hero brought back from Hell to avenge his death, and rack up some fresh souls for the Devil (Rourke) in the process.

Dead In Tombstone Blu-Ray Review

22 October 2013 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Danny Trejo is 69 years old and still kicking ass – much more ass than he should be. It’d be one thing if his only leading role this year was Machete Kills, but Trejo has a whole list of titles he’ll be appearing in this year alone, with his most recent action adventure being Dead In Tombstone. Directed by Roel Reiné (Death Race 2/Death Race: Inferno), Trejo brings hell to Earth in this undead Western thriller, making a deal with the Devil, played by none other than Mickey Rourke. If Guerrero (Trejo) can deliver the souls of the six men who double-crossed him, he’ll save his own hell-cursed afterlife – assuming he can trust the Devil.

When you watch a straight-to-dvd/Blu-Ray Danny Trejo film, there are certain expectations and assumptions, but Dead In Tombstone is on the higher end of this scale. Personally, I love Westerns, and I love horror influenced thrillers, »

Exclusive: Danny Trejo, Anthony Michael Hall and Dina Meyer Talk Dead in Tombstone

15 October 2013 9:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last April, Universal Studios Home Entertainment invited us to the set of the Western Dead in Tombstone, although sadly we were not able to attend. Thankfully, due to the power of email and video cameras, we were able to submit our questions to stars Danny Trejo, Anthony Michael Hall and Dina Meyer, and you can see what they had to say while in the midst of shooting this supernatural action thriller. Directed by Roel Rein&#233 (12 Rounds 2: Reloaded, Death Race 3: Inferno), Dead in Tombstone follows an outlaw (Danny Trejo) who makes a deal with the devil himself after his death, allowing him to rise from the grave and seek the revenge he so desperately needs. Take a look at our exclusive interviews with the cast of Dead in Tombstone, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD October 22, and you can also take a look at five behind-the-scenes videos.

Exclusive Interview With Danny Trejo On Dead In Tombstone

5 October 2013 9:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When you interview Danny Trejo, it’s almost impossible to stay on the topic of just one film because of the actor’s constant drive and always growing filmography. If we’re to believe IMDb.com, Danny is currently slated to appear in 21 movies between 2013-2014, and that’s only what we know of. While talking to Danny, he mentioned at least one more film that wasn’t listed, so who knows how many times we’ll be seeing Mr. Trejo in the coming years. Most recently you can catch him in Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming sequel Machete Kills, but I was there to talk about another project Danny is particularly excited about, and that’s the revenge Western Dead In Tombstone.

There’s an aura of badassery that Danny has become known for, playing rough-and-tumble characters like Machete, and he’s become somewhat of an action mainstay, but his »

Not entirely appropriate celebrations in action movies

30 September 2013 11:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Simon Brew 1 Oct 2013 - 07:53

You know at the end of some action movies where everyone jumps up in euphoria? Is it just us that thinks they've forgotten a few things?

Every now and then, there's an action movie that involves our hero fighting the good fight, whilst a crowd of people wait, tensed up, to hear the outcome. Usually these people wear expensive suits and look important. Yet these strange people share something in common. When the baddies have been defeated and they get the news, they have a habit of running around as if it's been the best day ever. Furthermore, they have a habit of forgetting that lots of people may have died, and died in some cases just minutes before. You want examples? Grab your favourite celebrating outfit, and walk this way...

Roel Reiné Gets Back in the Saddle with Dead in Tombstone

22 August 2013 4:47 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

No one does action in film like Netherland's director Roel Reiné (Death Race 2). Reiné continues in the action genre with Dead in Tombstone. But, the sci-fi of Death Race 2 has been lost, in favour of the western. Danny Trejo centrally stars in this release as a cowboy wrangler, looking to avenge his own death. Mickey Rourke, Anthony Michael Hall (Dead Zone) and Dina Meyer (Saw) also star. And now, a behind the scenes clip has been released for Dead in Tombstone. The clip, titled "Big Explosions," shows actor Danny Trejo as Guerrero Hernandez. Guerrero is the man seeking revenge. The clip shows several stunt doubles preparing for a fiery explosion, in an Old Western town. Fans of pyrotechnics can view the clip below. Dead in Tombstone will release in October of 2013, through various formats. Release details for Blu-Ray are also available below. Release Date: October 8th, 2013 (Video-on-demand), October 22nd (DVD, »

Dina Meyer, Danny Trejo and Mickey Rourke are Dead in Tombstone

14 August 2013 6:53 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

When Danny Trejo is not camping it up as the meanest, bloodiest Mexican to ever walk the earth in Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” movies, he’s the hardest working man in B-action movies. One of his upcoming titles is the horror/Western “Dead in Tombstone”, which finds Trejo playing a dead man who is resurrected by Satan to kill a bunch of bad dudes lead by Anthony Michael Hall. Then Dina Meyer (of “Starship Troopers” fame) gets involved. Don’t ask me in what capacity, because she’s really not in the trailer for very long. Roel Reiné, current reigning king of the direct-to-dvd sequels (“12 Rounds”, “The Marine”, and “Death Race”) directs with some unexpected flair. Danny Trejo (Machete), Anthony Michael Hall (The Dark Knight) and Oscar® nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) star in this fiery, action-packed battle for vengeance.
