Trailer & artwork for Wesley Snipes’ action flick ‘Final Recall’

21 June 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In his first leading role since 2012’s cult [s]hit Gallowwalkers, action superstar Wesley Snipes returns to the screen in Final Recall, alongside Rj Mitte (Breaking Bad) and Jedidiah Goodacre (Tomorrowland). Here, Snipes has a hell of good time as a no-nonsense survivalist trying to stop aliens from taking over planet Earth, and attempting to convince a cabin full of teens what is at stake – basically, the end of humanity.

A group of friends are spending the weekend at a cabin on the lake while, unbeknownst to them, aliens have begun to attack planet Earth. A number of the friends are abducted immediately by the ship hovering above, and the remaining two of the group, Annie and Charlie, must rely on an eccentric and dangerous hunter who seems to have special knowledge of the attack, explaining that this day has been prophesized for years and extraterrestrials have been guiding Earth’s evolution in preparation for their ultimate takeover.

Final Recall, aka The Recall, is released in the UK on Digital HD on August 14th and DVD on August 21st. »

Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Unleashes The Claws In First Trailer

9 June 2017 6:52 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Black Panther” is coming and the times they are slowly a changin.’ We’ve had female-led, African American-starring super hero films before (“Elektra,” “Blade,” “Catwoman”), but only the Wesley Snipes vehicle really made much traction (and spawned a trilogy no less). Yet it’s been a while. Up until the release of “Wonder Woman,” neither a female or black-led super hero had been released in over 10 years.

Final Recall: Wesley Snipes returns in a new trailer

Kirsten Howard Jun 7, 2017

August will bring us a brand new Wesley Snipes movie, and you can see the trailer right here...

Wesley Snipes was released from prison for tax evasion back in 2013, but since then we've not seen too much of him in the world of films. The iconic Blade actor has appeared briefly in Expendables 3 and Spike Lee's Chi-Raq, but other than that he's been Mia from movies.

2017, however, will provide a bountiful supply of Snipes. He's set to have three movies out before the end of the year, the first of which is Final Recall (aka The Recall elsewhere), a sci-fi film in which he stars alongside Breaking Bad's R.J. Mitte and Jedidiah Goodacre from Tomorrowland. He'll play a character only referred to as 'The Hunter', and the trailer »

Fear The Walking Dead season 3 episodes 1 & 2 review: The Eye Of The Beholder & The New Frontier

Fear The Walking Dead returns with a two-hour season three opener. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Wesley Snipes: ball is in Marvel's court over Blade Examining the modern cinema of Wesley Snipes

3.1 Eye Of The Beholder & 3.2 The New Frontier

Fear The Walking Dead is a show that will soon be undergoing a change in leadership. Unlike the parent show, Dave Erickson (who wrote the first episode of the season) has been at the helm for the first three seasons, with this one being his final as the runner of the show. Unlike The Walking Dead, Fear has been relatively sedate on the back end, and that might be a negative thing for it. Fear The Walking Dead seems to be hitting a lot of the same beats year after year, and the beginning of this season seems no different.

Major League 3 Is Ready to Go, It Just Needs Funding

24 May 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After years of talk, it looks like Major League 3 may finally happen. Charlie Sheen has been into the idea of doing the movie for years, but now he says everyone is on board and they are just waiting for someone to "write a check." Assuming they can get financing together, it sounds like original director David S. Ward and the entire original cast are set to return for the long-awaited sequel.

The 51-year-old actor recently spoke with TMZ and revealed that David S. Ward has written the script for Major League 3 and that the movie is ready to go. He also said that "everybody is back," when asked who would be returning. That would presumably include Wesley Snipes and Tom Berenger. Though, he did note that Lou Brown, who was played by James Gammon in both Major League movies, will not be included in the sequel, but said they will "do it in his honor. »

Major League 3 is in the works according to Charlie Sheen

24 May 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Charlie Sheen has revealed that Major League 3 is in development during a recent interview.

Major League came at the height of Charlie Sheen’s movie career back in 1989 and became a much loved baseball film in the process.

Now Sheen is reporting that another sequel is in the works with the original cast and director attached to the project.

Speaking to TMZ, the actor said “We’re looking to get Major League 3 done,” and “We’re just looking for someone to write a check.”

Sheen described Major League’s return as “a really smart story, a really great script.”

Major League told the story of Sheen’s pitcher Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn, and an underdog Cleveland Indians team that has to overcome a sabotage attempt by their owner.

The original film also starred Tom Berenger, Wesley Snipes, James Gammon, Bob Uecker, and Corbin Bernsen.

The movie was directed by David S. Ward, »

The myth of The Madness Of King George

20 May 2017 6:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 19, 2017

The Madness Of King George is a film that was sold off the back of a story that wasn’t true…

Nominated for four Oscars, and bringing the late, great Nigel Hawthorne to the attention of movie audiences (following his sensational work in television and on the stage), The Madness Of King George was a real breakout hit. Premiering in December 1994 (just two months after filming wrapped!), and released in the UK in March 1995, the film won one Academy Award, three BAFTAs, and grossed over $15m in the Us alone.

But there’s one story about the movie that continues to circle. And it’s to do with its title.

The film is based on Alan Bennett’s play, The Madness Of King George III, that tells the story of the health issues that King George III suffered during his reign in the 18th century. But when »

Underrated Boxing Movie You Should See: “Streets of Gold”

18 May 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

During the 80s when you think of boxing movies you’ll always think of the Rocky franchise.  But there was one boxing movie in 1986 that featured a young Wesley Snipes in only his second featured film (first one was Wildcats) called Streets of Gold. The movie stars Klaus Maria Brandauer, the Oscar winner from “Out Of Africa,” as an alcoholic former boxing champion from Russia, a Jew who was the greatest Soviet fighter of his generation but who wasn’t allowed to fight outside Russia because of his religion. Now we meet him 10 years later, stumbling through the gutters of

'Under The Shadow' backer launches two funds

Exclusive: Creativity Capital aims to invest in 15-20 films per year in the $2M - $15M range.

Creativity Capital, the London-based financier that has invested in projects including Babak Anvari’s Bafta-winning Under The Shadow, is launching a pair of new funds.

Adding to the company’s current structured debt investments will be funds focused on gap financing and collateralised lending.

According to Creativity Capital managing director Patrick Fischer, the company is aiming to invest in 15-20 films per year with budgets in the $2M - $15M range.

TV Shows You Simply Can’t Miss if You Love Vampires

9 May 2017 5:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If you love the blood-sucking creatures of the night and you can’t get enough of these horrifying yet beautiful immortal beings, you’ve no doubt seen all the fang-tastic shows that television has to offer…or have you?

Some of the best TV shows feature more than just vampires

Did you know that some of the greatest television shows with the beautiful undead don’t actually have the word “Vampire” in their titles? Take Penny Dreadful for example. This show was rated number1 on IMDb’s list of best vampire TV series. Why? It’s dark, it’s macabre, and its set in Victorian London. While the show does feature a main Dracula-vampire storyline, what’s even more interesting is it is a mashup of several grisly horror tales from actual books that were once sold for a penny in London. These books became very popular and were known as penny dreadfuls. »

Wesley Snipes Movie The Recall Gets A Trailer

3 May 2017 12:51 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Cinema Blend reports that the trailer for the new Wesley Snipes movie The Recall is out. The movie focuses on five friends who make their way to a remote cabin in the woods for some fun and relaxation only to encounter anything but. They run into a man calling himself The Hunter, played by Wesley Snipes, who they think is crazy but turns out to be more sane than they realize. He also turns out to be their only hope to stay alive.

The only memorable part of the trailer is Wesley Snipes. I get the impression that a person would have a similar real life experience running into Wesley Snipes as the characters in the trailer did when they first meet him. Other than that, the trailer comes off as a strange hybrid of The Evil Dead, Aliens, and Passenger 57 that just doesn't work for me. The basic »
