Hot Toys Battle Damage Robocop Collectible Action Figure

19 October 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"Dead or alive, you are coming with me."

Hot Toys recently revealed their 1/6 scale RoboCop collectible action figure that fans of the original movie are sure to love. The figure highlights the battle damage that the character incurred during the course of his bloody and violent adventure. It always creeped me the hell out when Murphy took off his helmet. His face on that robotic body is the thing nightmares are made of. 

Earlier this year, many fans were extremely excited to see the prototype of the new battle damaged version Robocop Collectible Figure at a number of toy fairs! In addition to the wonderfully crafted battle damage effect, it is the first ever official 1/6th scale collectible figure that features the likeness of Peter Weller! Today, we are proud to officially present the highly-anticipated 1/6th scale RoboCop (Battle Damaged Version) Collectible Figure!

An Interview with Martial Arts Film Legend Gary Daniels

Manny Camacho interviews action film star Gary Daniels

Waking up at 4:30 Am is not something many of us like to do. Waking up to go to work at such an ungodly hour is usually far worse. However, waking up at this ungodly hour to go to work because I get to interview a martial art and action star I grew up watching…that is a treat!

Gary Daniels is a prolific actor and martial artist that has been in films on both sides of the pond for over 25 years. He got his start with a variety of talented people in the industry like Jackie Chan, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Lorenzo Lamas, Richard Norton, Malcolm McDowell, Costas Mandylor and a variety of others.

I remember first seeing him on screen as one of the villains in Jackie Chan’s City Hunter, opposite Chan as the main opposition protecting the main antagonist, »

Hellboy, Robocop, The Punisher and Jaa ply Skin Trade

13 October 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director Ekachai Uekrongtham (The Coffin) changes direction with his latest movie, a collaboration with Thai superstar Tony Jaa. It's been a long time since Jaa had a bona fide hit on his hands, and there's little chance of this one breaking the mould, however, he is joined by some awesome talent. Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) shares top-billing with the pintsized wonder, but he's not the only big Hollywood star to make an appearance. Sons of Anarchy regulars are currently seeking new employment, which means the likes of Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Peter Weller (Robocop) have some free time on their hands. Michael Jai White, fresh from Arrow duties, more than makes up the numbers in this decent looking action movie. Set in and around Bangkok, we'll bring you more information when we have it. For now though, check out the impressive trailer. Guilty pleasures don't come around that often these days. »

Negotiations Over! First official trailer for Skin Trade with Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa

11 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a host of films in the pipeline involving sharks, War Pigs, and other purveyors of carnage, Dolph Lundgren has a lot on his plate, but before that there’s the small matter of Skin Trade, the pet project that’s taken him over six years to get off the ground. An early 2015 release date is expected and the first official trailer has just gone live.

Lundgren stars as Nick Cassidy, whose family is killed by Serbian Gangster Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman). Cassidy tracks Viktor to Bangkok where he teams up with local police detective Tony (Tony Jaa). The pair set about bringing an end to Viktor’s sex trafficking operation once and for all. Judging by the trailer a lot of cans of whoop-ass will get opened.

Co-starring with Lundgren will be Tony Jaa (who will also be seen in Fast & Furious 7), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Peter Weller (RoboCop), Michael Jai White »

First Proper Skin Trade Trailer Teams Dolph Lundgren And Tony Jaa In Thailand

11 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Dolph Lundgren is very much the star in the first official trailer for Skin Trade, directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham (Beautiful Boxer), but Tony Jaa is lurking in the background, ready to strike fear into the hearts of men with his fists and his feet. Lundgren and Jaa play two cops who team up to take down Ron Perlman, an evil human trafficker who fled the United States after killing Lundgren's family and is hiding in Thailand. That allows for plenty of action, occasional flying bodies, and an explosion or two. Michael Jai White co-stars, plus the dependable Peter Weller is present to dispense authoritative commands. The film is aiming for a 2015 release. If the action is as consistently good as what's depicted in the trailer, this could...

Sons of Anarchy, Ep. 7.05, “Some Strange Eruption: Jax escapes unscathed again

9 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sons of Anarchy Season 7, Episode 5, “Some Strange Eruption”

Directed by Peter Weller

Written by Kurt Sutter & Robert0 Patino

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX

“Nothing defends what happened here.”

Jax’s early declaration to Nero about his shock that Lin would go so far as an act of revenge is the first time in a while he has shown any true concern for the people around him. It also comes off as incredibly naive in that even if the murder of sixteen innocent people is indefensible, the reason it even came to retaliation in the first place stems from his actions first and foremost. His inability to understand how his actions affect an ever-widening pool of people is quickly becoming a theme here, but without any real consequences for the club or his life.

Most of this episode consists of yet another round of table setting before anything of significance even occurs, »

'Sons Of Anarchy' Recap: Jarry Learns Of Samcro & Chinese War; Juice Pulls Gun On Gemma

7 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sons Of Anarchy returned Tuesday following Lin (Kenneth Choi) and the Chinese's hit on Diosa that left everyone inside dead. Samcro, reeling from the mass murder, refuses to clue law enforcement and Jarry (Annabeth Gish) in on who was behind the slaughter.

Sons of Anarchy Recap

Now, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Samcro have an additional motivation to destroy the Chinese besides Tara’s death. It’s decided that they have to track down Desmond, the Barosky (Peter Weller) associate. The beat it out of him that he is the one who took Lin’s money and paved the way for Lin to get the Chinese’s guns back and kill West.

Jax also has to deal with Nero (Jimmy Smits), who is angry with him for not being up front about the war with the Chinese. Though Nero has nothing to do with it, his and his son’s life have been threatened by Lin. »

Recap: 'Sons of Anarchy' - 'Some Strange Eruption'

7 October 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Haven’t caught up on Tuesday’s newest “Sons of Anarchy?” Well snuff out that post-sex cigarette, cover up those chest tattoos and don’t promise someone there will be no more dead bodies, because well … we all know that’s bull. Have you watched this show before? Indeed, the body count on “Some Strange Eruption” continued to climb, but it was also an episode where very clear lines were drawn and loyalties were established. Sheriff Jarry told Unser it was time to decide if he was one of the good guys. Lin demanded Nero pick between the Chinese and the Sons. And Gemma—worst mother of the year Gemma, had to make a decision of “Mice and Men” proportions that blew up in her face. I’d say that halfway through the final season, it’s all pretty much on track.  The episode opened with another musical montage to »

The Strain, Ep. 1.12, “Last Rites” is only a test

29 September 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 12, “Last Rites”

Written by Carlton Cuse, David Weddle & Bradley Thompson

Directed by Peter Weller

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

The penultimate episode of The Strain‘s first season reminds us most of “Across the Sea”, the third-last episode of Lost‘s final season. That episode came very near the end of Lost‘s run, but left the present action to show the origins of Island inhabitants Jacob and the Man in Black. Choosing to halt the action and go back into the past to tell a story that only revealed a small amount and to do so that late in the season felt misguided and a little pointless. “Last Rites” is not quite as much of a side-step, but the return of Setrakian’s flashbacks was certainly a surprising development.

The lucky thing is that these generally work better than the Holocaust flashbacks earlier in the season. »

Peter Weller on Sons of Anarchy’s Final Days, the Cult of Buckaroo Banzai, and His Ph.D.

25 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Peter Weller may still be best known for blowing away street punks as the original RoboCop, but he’s equally riveting these days as bad cop Charles Barosky on Sons of Anarchy, a series he has also directed. “I like acting, and if a good part comes along, I’ll do it,” he says. “But I get much more satisfaction from directing.” He’s helming three episodes in SoA’s seventh and final season, and his character has returned as well; he also directs this Sunday’s episode of FX’s The Strain. Weller spoke with Vulture about Barosky’s backstory, why he skipped the RoboCop reboot, the cult of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, and how he became “a Ph.D. pretentious asshole.”How did you get cast as Barosky?I was directing the show, and Kurt [Sutter] came up to me and said, “We have this character. »

'Sons Of Anarchy' Recap: Jax Defies August Marks; Chibs Rejects Juice's Plea To Return To Samcro

23 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sons of Anarchy kicked off Tuesday night towards the end of Lyla shooting a scene for Redwoody’s first adult film DVD, which proves tame by comparison to the bloodletting to come.

Sons of Anarchy Recap

Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) and Tig (Kim Coates) are nearly besides themselves, while Jax (Charlie Hunnam) appreciatively calls Lyla, who was working behind the camera, a “genius.” Interrupting the celebration is August Marks (Billy Brown), who has pulled up to the lot outside. Marks has heard about the Chinese shipment getting hit and he’s more or less convinced that Samcro is behind it. He’s not buying that the two muscle men ran the operation, as he knows that the Chinese lost 4 kilos of heroin, not two. Threatening Jax, he says he’ll have no problem killing him or any of the other Sons.

Instead of meeting with Tully (Marilyn Manson) as planned, Jax »

Double Review: Deadly Eyes & Leviathan (Blu-ray)

6 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory recently gifted us genre fans a double dose of creature feature terrors with their Blu-ray releases of the killer rat flick Deadly Eyes and George P. Cosmatos’ hugely underrated deep sea horror film Leviathan.  While both films aren’t necessarily well-known amongst more casual fans, it’s great to see Scream put such great effort into their presentations for each of these cult classics.

For those who haven’t seen it before, Deadly Eyes (or Rats)is a rather ridiculous (but wonderfully so) early ‘80s nature-run-amok story that plays up the concerns and dangers of modern urban society by way of roided-out killer rat infestations that have a penchant for human flesh. The film takes its premise very seriously, but it’s the use of Daschunds in rat costumes that has given Deadly Eyes something of an unintentional comedic spin, making for a rather uneven horror film.

A&E Cancels Longmire

30 August 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In what might be considered a strange move on the part of TV network A&E, the crime drama Longmire has been cancelled at the end of its third season. It’s strangeness is rooted in the fact that this decision leaves the channel with very little in the way of scripted drama – something it had made a very conscious step toward, some time ago. Having now disposed of Glades and Those Who Kill, however, the ending of Longmire will leave A&E with only Bates Motel and the upcoming remake of The Returned.

Longmire had been a very popular part of A&E’s lineup, being based on Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire Mysteries series of novels. The show saw Wyoming county sheriff Walt Longmire return to work following the death of his wife, and investigate major crimes while running for re-election. It starred Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, »

The Definitive ‘What the F**K?’ Movies: 40-31

23 August 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As you can probably tell, this list feels more arbitrary than others. That’s not by design, but the unfortunate premise of the list leaves some room for interpretation. As we move forward, we will start seeing the films that, if you asked a lay person to give an example, would probably be a response. In other words, more people have heard of them, which, in turn, often makes them more “definitive.” Don’t worry, though – there are still some underseen and underappreciated gems the rest of the way through.

40. Werckmeister Harmonies (2000)

Directed by: Béla Tarr

It’s certainly not the swiftest film on the list, but you can’t expect much quick plot development from Béla Tarr. Wreckmeister Harmonies takes place in a tiny Hungarian town surrounded by nothing. The winter is incredibly cold, but it never snows. Yet the townspeople are excited in the middle of town as »

New Under The Dome Season 2,Episode 9 Intense Spoiler Promo Clip Hit The Net

23 August 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Recently, CBS released the new promo/spoiler clip (below) for their upcoming "Under The Dome" episode 9 of season 2, and it appears to be very intense and drama-filled as Barbie gets smacked around pretty hard while under heavy interrogation, and more! The episode is titled, "The Red Door." In the new, 9th episode, Barbie will end up, getting caught by a crew of mystery men, and will be relentlessly interrogated about his connection to the Dome. In the meantime, Big Jim will end up, hatching a new deal that might just seal the fate of the residents of Chester’s Mill forever. Guest stars are going to include: Brett Cullen (Don Barbara), Jessejames Locorriere (Interrogator), Max Ehrich (Hunter), Brody Rose (Little Boy), Mike Whaley (Malick), Colin Dennard (Trevor), Austin Stack (Young Junior) and Brennon Olsen (8 Year Old Barbie).

New on Blu-ray and DVD: The Sacrament! The Quiet Ones! & More!

21 August 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

For a brief period in the late 80s, we got a ton of great underwater genre films including George P. Cosmatos', mostly forgotten, Leviathan. When I was a kid, Leviathan was pretty interchangeable with Deep Star Six which came out the same year and had equally striking box art.

But Leviathan stands out as the better film in a number of important ways. First, the cast is uniformly strong. It includes Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson. Secondly, it was written by David Webb Peoples [Continued ...] »

The Strain, Ep. 1.06, “Occultation” finally gets things moving!

18 August 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 6, “Occultation”

Written by Justin Brit-Gibson

Directed by Peter Weller

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

This is a flip-flop show. One week it leaves us questioning what went wrong, the next we see its potential all over again. This week is more of the latter as, for lack of a better phrase, the shit hits the fan. Or rather, an eclipse hits New York City and the freaks come out to play. The threat of the coming eclipse adds further tension to the rest of the episode, as we start to wonder who will find safety before the darkness arrives. No one really does.

To be fair, the episode starts off in a typically boring manner as Eph’s wife very predictably and conventionally reacts to Eph’s newfound hero bad boy, fugitive-from-the-law persona by second-guessing her relationship with New Boyfriend (the show has made »
