Ice Cube confirms Last Friday is in the works

21 May 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Ice Cube has revealed that development is underway on a fourth instalment of the Friday series, and while it doesn’t have a release date yet, there is a title:

““We’re working on one right now,” said the rapper turned actor and writer. “We’re gonna call it Last Friday.”

Ice Cube didn’t have any other details to offer, but one would assume that he will be starring in the film and writing the screenplay, as he has done with the previous three instalments.

We’ll also presumably see the return of several franchise veterans such as John Witherspoon (Willie Jones) and Mike Epps (Day-Day), although it remains to be seen whether Chris Tucker could be tempted back to the series for the first time since the original.

The first Friday was released back in 1995, and was followed by »

The movie, which is going to be titled Last Friday, according to Ice Cube, doesn't yet have a release date, but is being worked on as we speak.

Ice Cube recently appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, where he revealed the news. He didn't say much about it, but when the subject of a Friday 4 came up, he did confirm that he is working on one and that they at least have a title for it at this point, if nothing else. Here's what he had to say about it.

"We're working on one right now. We're gonna call it Last Friday."

F. Gary Gray's Furious Tendencies

28 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

A Man ApartIn October 2016, Vin Diesel revealed that the director of The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment in the multi-billion dollar series of films, would be none other than F. Gary Gray. To those familiar with his work, it seemed like a natural fit. Gray has worked in Hollywood for over twenty years and is one of the most financially successful black directors in history. Coming off of the massive success of Straight Outta Compton (his second film to gross over $100 million dollars at the domestic box office, after 2003’s The Italian Job), Gray seemed like the ideal choice for the latest Fast and Furious installment, where he could return to his cinematic trademarks: guns, heists, fast cars and racially diverse ensembles.  These elements were staples of Gray’s work even before his first feature in 1995. Gray, a South Central Los Angeles native, began as a cameraman for Bet and Fox, »

The Most Disappointing Year in Movies

25 April 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In 1997, a film cynic was born.

Seeing Star Wars ruined should have been a sign that 1997 would be the worst year ever for blockbusters. George Lucas’s Special Editions, intended to “improve” the original trilogy but mostly doing the opposite, started arriving in January. By the time of the release of the new version of Return of the Jedi in March, my anticipation for anything ought to have been demolished. But I couldn’t have imagined that was only the beginning.

Actually, the first steps towards the end of an era were made in the early ’90s. That just wasn’t a great time for big movies compared to the prior decade. Some of my biggest letdowns of all time included Hudson Hawk in 1991 and Death Becomes Her in 1992. Jurassic Park wasn’t good enough for me, having read the book. Independence Day put me to sleep in the theater. Beloved »

More of Don Rickles‘ friends are remembering the late comedian — who died on Thursday at age 90 in his Los Angeles home as a result of kidney failure.

Rush Hour 4 Is Still Happening

24 March 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been almost 10 years since Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) and Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) last joined forces in 2007's Rush Hour 3. Throughout the years, there has been talk of another Rush Hour sequel, but there haven't been any substantial updates in quite some time. During an appearance at the Sun Valley Film Festival, filmmaker Brett Ratner revealed that he thinks this action sequel will happen. Here's what he had to say in a brief statement at the festival, while jokingly revealing a possible title.

"I think it will happen; we're talking to writers. We could call it Grumpy Old Rush Hour."

While the filmmaker wouldn't elaborate more on this sequel to Entertainment Weekly, he may be onto something in regards to the title. While Chris Tucker was still a rising star when the first Rush Hour hit theaters in 1998, the actor is now 44 years of age, while »

Rotten Tomatoes Is ‘The Destruction of Our Business,’ Says Producer/Director Brett Ratner

23 March 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Brett Ratner has a lot of respect and admiration for traditional film critics. However, the renowned director/producer says that the film critic aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes is destroying the film industry.

“The worst thing that we have in today’s movie culture is Rotten Tomatoes,” Ratner said at the Sun Valley Film Festival last week, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. “I think it’s the destruction of our business. I have such respect and admiration for film criticism. When I was growing up film criticism was a real art. And there was intellect that went into that. And you would read Pauline Kael’s reviews, or some others, and that doesn’t exist anymore. Now it’s about a number. A compounded number of how many positives vs. negatives. Now it’s about, ‘What’s your Rotten Tomatoes score?’ And that’s sad, because the Rotten Tomatoes score was »
