‘Licence to Kill’ brings a modern edge to the character

Licence to Kill

Directed by John Glen

Screenplay by Michael G. Wilson and Richard Maibaum

UK, 1989

With the release of Skyfall this month, critics have cited the major departures from the Bond formula taken by that film. They credit Daniel Craig for bringing a modern edge to a character that had become ridiculous in the Brosnan years. It’s easy to forget that similar claims were made about Timothy Dalton back in the late ‘80s. The classically trained actor brought grace to the role with his first appearance in 1987’s The Living Daylights. That film retained the look and feeling of the Roger Moore films while starting the shift towards a more realistic hero. The change became a lot more dramatic in Dalton’s second outing two years later. Licence to Kill pared down the excesses of the typical Bond film and crafted a more personal tale of revenge. While »

"Mortal Kombat" Turns 20 -- What Happened to the Film's Fighters?

18 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Get over here! From the movie's memorable theme to some killer fight choreography, "Mortal Kombat" was a force to be reckoned with when it opened on this day 20 years ago. Sure, the performances were stiff and the fatalities didn't match the bloody extremes of the games, but the film adaptation was still a major hit for New Line Cinema, raking in over $120 million off of an $18 million budget. Fans of the brutal games finally got to see favorites like Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden and Goro brought to life, the women sporting slightly less revealing outfits than their arcade counterparts.  Fun Fact: Did you know Cameron Diaz was originally supposed to play Sonya? According to the game's co-creator, Ed Boon, she broke her hand during karate lessons and was replaced by Bridgette Wilson-Sampras shortly before filming.  With a rumored reboot in development with "The Conjuring" director James Wan producing, »

'Mortal Kombat' Movie Happening with Producer James Wan

7 August 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New Line Cinema's Mortal Kombat has been given a new lease on life, with the studio bringing aboard filmmaker James Wan to produce. The filmmaker is coming off of the massive Universal blockbuster Furious 7, which has taken in over $1.5 billion at the box office. The Tracking Board's report doesn't mention if the filmmaker will direct, but that seems unlikely, since he has a number of projects on his directorial plate, such as The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist and Aquaman.

The script is being written by Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street) and Dave Callaham (Godzilla). Oren Uziel wrote director Kevin Tancharoen's short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, which served as a launching pad for the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series that ran for two seasons. Kevin Tancharoen was actually attached to direct this movie reboot before he eventually dropped out back in October 2013. We haven't heard anything about the project since then, »
