Screening Abel Ferrara’s Director’s Cut of Cat Chaser

28 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

After Cat Chaser, Abel Ferrera was reluctant to give up final cut again, not without a fight anyways. The erotic thriller’s 1989 theatrical release, complete with a clunky voiceover ghosted by another actor because leading hunk Peter Weller refused, has a fundamentally different character from Ferrera’s director’s cut currently housed in the basement at Anthology Film Archives. Last Tuesday, Anthology screened the only known copy, on video with time code, a rough audio mix, and without a score, for the first time maybe ever since it played on the Fox lot to studio bigwigs in the ’80s. That’s the last […] »

Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe team up for Shane Black's 'Nice Guys'

11 July 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Shane Black, who made his reputation writing Lethal Weapon for producer Joel Silver and Warner Bros., has decided that he’s not too old for this shit.

After striking it big again as a director of last summer’s Iron Man 3, Black has re-partnered with Silver and Warner Bros. for a project he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi titled The Nice Guys. And he’s landed some pretty nice guys to play the two L.A. detectives investigating the mysterious suicide of a 1970s porn star: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe.

In June, the Wrap initially reported that the long-in-development project was falling into place, »

Stan Winston Week: Celebrating Leviathan with Ernie Hudson, Tom Woodruff Jr. & Exclusive Photo Gallery

8 July 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For the second day of our Stan Winston Week celebration, I wanted to shine the spotlight on another monster movie that I’ve always enjoyed, but it never seemed to get as much love as I thought it should- George P. CosmatosLeviathan. It’s a movie that wasn’t perfect by any means, but it was endlessly entertaining all the same, featuring a top-notch ensemble and tons of wonderfully weird and creepy creature effects created by Winston and his team of artists.

Starring Peter Weller, Richard Crenna, Daniel Stern, Ernie Hudson, Amanda Pays, Hector Elizondo, Meg Foster, Michael Carmine and Lisa Eilbacher, Leviathan was released in theaters everywhere on March 17, 1989 and took a respectable second place for the weekend, right behind Chevy Chase’s Fletch Lives. It only stayed in theaters for a total of three weeks, but still managed to haul in over $15 million during that run, which »

'RoboCop' Statue to Be Unveiled in Detroit Tomorrow

2 June 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With 20th Century Fox's RoboCop debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD June 3, the city of Detroit will unveil their 10-foot bronze statue of the crime-fighting cyborg, portrayed by Peter Weller in the original Robocop and by Joel Kinnaman in this year's reboot. Take a look at the photo of this statue, then read on for more details about "RoboCop Day" in the Motor City tomorrow.

The initiative to construct a RoboCop statue started three years ago, when a Massachusetts resident suggested to Detroit mayor Dave Bing that the city should celebrate this iconic character with a statue in the following message.

"Philadelphia has a statue of Rocky & RoboCop would kick Rocky's butt. He's a Great ambassador for Detroit."

While the mayor responded that there were no plans for a RoboCop statue, non-profit organization Imagination Station raised $50,000 to fund the construction, just days after the initial suggestion was made. The unveiling »

Crime Classic: Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop

28 May 2014 5:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We're holding a free screening of a crime classic of your choice next week. Here's a closer look at another option: the original RoboCop...

Feature

On the 5th June, we're holding a free crime classic cinema screening to celebrate the launch of the videogame Murdered: Soul Suspect. You can find out details of the screening, and how you can vote for the film you most want to see, here.

For now, here's our look back at the first of the films you can choose from: Paul Verhoeven's 1987 classic, RoboCop.

Nb: The following contains mild spoilers.

There are many reasons why RoboCop endures as one of the best films of the 1980s, but one of them stands out from the rest: it’s so many things at once. It’s a sharp corporate satire. It’s a violent action movie. It’s a pitch-black comedy. It’s a science fiction film about mortality and technology. »

9 potentially great movie sequels teased but never made

22 April 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie 23 Apr 2014 - 06:54

We take a look back at the geek movies that have hinted at sequels that were never made, and we'd really like to see...

Nb: The following contains inevitable spoilers. If you haven't seen a film in a particular entry, feel free to skip to the next one.

In some cases, it comes as a relief when a threatened sequel fails to materialise. The end of the infamous Mac And Me, for example, sees its family of cretinous aliens drive off in a pink Cadillac, a speech bubble chillingly telling us, "We'll be back!" Thankfully, Mac And Me 2 has yet to materialise, despite the original film's near-legendary status.

Every so often, though, we'll come across a movie that strongly hints at more adventures to come, but for a variety of reasons - usually financial ones - the sequel never got made. To illustrate this, »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Review

3 April 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Six years don’t seem like that long a stretch of a time, but it’s long enough to create a universe. I should clarify, I mean a cinematic universe. You see, that’s just what they’ve done at Marvel Studios. And what a wondrous place it is! And movie-goers are now able to visit there more than once a year. Hard to believe, but it was back in 2008 that the famed comic book company (lovingly named “The House of Ideas” by Stan Lee himself almost fifty years ago) decided that they should have a more active role in bringing their characters to the silver screen. Media pundits scoffed since several of their biggest properties, namely Spider-Man and the X-Men, were locked down in movie deals with Sony and Fox. But Marvel (with Paramount) initiated their big screen dreams with Iron Man, and they’ve not looked back. That »

Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa lock horns in Skin Trade teaser!

23 March 2014 11:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’ve ever wanted to see The Punisher, RoboCop, Hellboy and Spawn together in a film then Skin Trade will probably be the closest you’ll ever get to seeing that epic cheese dream fantasy coming true. Alongside former Punisher, Dolph Lundgren, Peter Weller (RoboCop), Michael Jai White (Spawn) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy) appear in action revenge flick, Skin Trade. For good measure, the man who laughs at Newton’s theory of gravity, Tony Jaa (the Punisher…of Elephant thieves) co-leads the picture with Lundgren. For even further good measure, fans of the recent Arrow series will recognise Celina Jade who also stars in this.

Lundgren plays a New York detective whose family gets killed by a Serbian mobster (Perlman) who runs a sex trafficking ring. Lundgren follows them to Bangkok and ends up reluctantly teaming up with local cop Jaa, who has his own personal reasons for wanting »

Underwater Creature Feature Leviathan Coming To Scream Factory Blu-ray!

19 March 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

One of the most underrated creature feature’s (and a personal favorite) is George P. CosmatosLeviathan. Sure, it’s basically an Alien and The Thing body-horror clone albeit with a deep sea locale, but the ensemble of character actors (Robocop himself Peter Weller, Ghostbuster‘s Ernie Hudson, and even They Live‘s Meg Foster as a steely corporate head!) and spectacular creature effects by Stan Winston make it stand on its’ own.

Scream Factory thinks so too, as they are now set to give the film it’s HD debut and release it during their so-called “Summer of Fear”! Here’s what they had to say:

Our “Summer of Fear” release slate is about to get drenched. We’re thrilled to report that we will be bringing the 1989 underwater monster flick Leviathan to Blu-ray for the first time this August! We know this will please many of you as »
