Force Friday First Look

Well, it might not be until September but the Star Wars Twitter account released a teaser image of the packaging for Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise. While it doesn’t give a lot away, it does give our first look at Rey, Finn and Poe in the film – including a new hairstyle for Daisy Ridley as well as putting her front and centre with a lightsaber. There’s still no update on the trailer, but that should be with us by Star Wars Celebration in April. Read more about that story here.

Thank You, Sub-mariner

With Avengers: Infinity War currently in production, Marvel Studios appear to be looking towards their next set of projects. According to a tweet from Reel New Hawaii, Namor the Sub-Mariner is the next character in line for adaptation, but it doesn’t specify if its a film or TV show. »

Shane Black’s The Predator is not a sequel, Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo unlikely

16 February 2017 1:01 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to actor Boyd Holbrook, The Predator will not be a sequel and may not feature any cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Predator is one of those franchises, like Terminator, Robocop, and Alien, that is never likely to die. The film has spawned numerous sequels and offspring at this point, but fans are still excited to see what Shane Black will do with his take.

In an interview with We Got this Covered, The Predator actor Boyd Holbrook spoke about the film and declared the flick would not be another sequel, more of a new take on things, and that we shouldn’t be shocked if Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn’t make an appearance.

“I’m currently working on Predator,” said Holbrook. “It’s not a sequel; Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch probably not showing up in new Predator film

16 February 2017 12:04 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I'm cautiously optimistic about this new Predator film, simply titled The Predator. On the one hand, I feel we've kind of exhausted Predator as a character, and I don't know what else a new film (sequel or remake) can say. On the other hand, motherf*ckin' Shane Black is at the helm, having also written the script. Even though I didn't like his divisive Iron Man 3,... Read More »

Boyd Holbrook Comments on The Predator, Discusses How it’s “Not a Sequel”

16 February 2017 10:59 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Between Narcos, Morgan, and the upcoming Logan, Boyd Holbrook has been staying busy as of late, but perhaps his biggest role is yet to come in Shane Black's The Predator, which the actor recently shed some light on, including how it is not a sequel.

Speaking with We Got This Covered, Holbrook insisted that The Predator is something new rather than a sequel:

"It’s not a sequel; Shane Black has made something totally new, somehow keeping within the realm of Predator [while also being] absolutely new in terms of the story that we’re talking about today, and rooted in something real."

There has also been some speculation that Arnold Schwarzenegger could reprise his role as Dutch from the original Predator in the new movie, but Holbrook doesn't believe that will be the case:

"I don’t think you’re going to see [Arnold] Schwarzenegger. It would kind of make it a gimmick. »

The Predator Shoots Next Week, Shwarzenegger Won't Return?

16 February 2017 10:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After what seems like a very long wait, The Predator is ready to begin shooting. Director Shane Black is at the helm of this new franchise installment. But apparently, it won't be the sequel we were expecting. Instead, this is a standalone reboot, and though it has been often talked about, it doesn't sound like the Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo is happening. Or is it?

Shane Black follows up the critically acclaimed 1970s noir comedy The Nice Guys with The Predator. And this is a world he's quite familiar with. Black actually starred in the first first Predator, released back in 1987. He played wisecracking Hawkins opposite Schwarzenegger in what has gone onto become a sci-fi classic. It doesn't sound like he'll put himself back in front of the camera. But he has assembled a fine cast that includes Boyd Holbrook in the lead along with Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, »

Here’s When Shane Black’s Predator Movie Will Start Filming

16 February 2017 8:32 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Remakes bad. Sequels bad. Originals good. That seems to be the mentality of the average moviegoer — at least when they’re talking. When it comes time to show up to the movie theaters, however, there is little doubt that recognizable names draw more crowds. You ever wonder why we live in the age of franchises? That’s why. However, among the doom and gloom of lifeless remakes and sequels (hello, hyperbole), there are a few of these types of movies that even the most jaded of fans are looking forward to. Among these is the upcoming Predator film from filmmaker Shane Black.

Unlike most studio directors, Black has a real voice to him. Take a look at Iron Man 3, and from the get-go, it’s clear that’s a Shane Black joint. Perhaps it’s not the proliferation of these franchises that has film fans spent, but rather that »

Exclusive Interview: Boyd Holbrook Talks Logan, Predator And Narcos

16 February 2017 5:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Judging by his recent list of collaborators, which includes the likes of David Fincher, Terrence Malick and Shane Black, it’s fair to say that Logan actor Boyd Holbrook is a highly sought after star in Hollywood. Fresh off of two seasons on Netflix’s acclaimed series Narcos, the actor has now teamed up with James Mangold to bring us the grittiest and most violent X-Men film to date.

Holbrook plays the wickedly charismatic and badass Donald Pierce, a cybernetically modified soldier that will stop at nothing to retrieve the young mutant X-23 (Dafne Keen). Logan can absolutely be categorized as a western and Holbrook is no stranger to the genre. Having never worked with comic book movies, roles in the miniseries Hatfields & McCoys and Gavin O’Connor’s Jane Got a Gun surely helped the actor feel right at home.

Last weekend, Holbrook sat down with us for an »

Chad Stahelski interview: John Wick 2, Highlander

Matt Edwards Feb 17, 2017

The director of John Wick 2 on fight scenes, Keanu Reeves, the Highlander remake, Jason Statham and John Wick 3...

With John Wick co-director David Leicht off directing Deadpool 2, Chad Stahelski returns to take sole control over follow up to the brilliant, Keanu Reeves starring shoot ‘em up. We sat down with the former stuntman to talk about how he creates such beautiful carnage in John Wick Chapter 2, as well as grabbing updates on the future of the John Wick franchise and his upcoming Highlander remake.

Why John Wick 2? Why’ve you made a second one?

There’s all the fiduciary reasons for the studio. For me, on a personal level, we were very fortunate. The first movie did really well. My partner Dave (Leicht), and I got a lot of other offers to do projects and step into other people’s shoes and do other sequels. »

Aquaman: You’ve Never Seen A Movie Like This, Says Jason Momoa

15 February 2017 9:05 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The DC Extended Universe has been making headlines lately, and as I’m sure you know, the headlines haven’t been pretty. Actor/director Ben Affleck’s involvement seems like a constant question mark, and fans are only left to wonder if they’ll be left out in the cold when all said and done. Plus, as great as the footage has been for the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League films, fans can’t help but wonder if they’ll be treated to another Batman v Superman or Suicide Squad in terms of disappointing end products.

Throughout all this drama, however, there is one DC film that seems to be trucking along quite nicely. In the face of any doubts mainstream audiences may have about the execution of the Aquaman character, director James Wan seems to have everything under control. Every so often we get a casting update, and »

To Horror, with Love: Cinema’s Biggest Genre Fans – Sean Crenshaw from The Monster Squad (1987)

10 February 2017 1:40 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Hello, readers! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we here at Daily Dead thought it would be fun to do things a little different this year. We're putting the spotlight on our favorite horror-loving characters from genre cinema, people who have represented our own fandom on screen and, in many cases, helped bring our passion for horror into the mainstream. Be sure to check back here on Daily Dead every day through Valentine's Day for our tributes to some of the greatest horror fans to ever grace the big screen.]

The history of horror movies is full of Monster Kids—those young boys and girls obsessed with all things horror who are, sooner or later, able to put all of their knowledge gathered from hours spent in front of Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man to good use. From Tommy Jarvis in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter to Paula in Neon Maniacs, the genre knows that the quickest way to our horror-loving hearts is through representation and identification: us fans love seeing some version of ourselves on screen acting out the fantasy of standing side by side with axe murderers and fantastic beasts. There are few things more satisfying to a young horror fan than seeing one of our own go toe to toe with a nasty creature and come out on top.

There is no better example of this in all of horror cinema than Sean Crenshaw, the »

Room Breakout Jacob Tremblay Will Bear Witness To The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan

8 February 2017 2:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jacob Tremblay is the latest addition to The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, noting that the young up-and-comer will incidentally play a young up-and-coming actor in Xavier Dolan’s star-studded drama. Largely set in the early 2000s, Dolan’s English-language debut follows a popular TV star (Kit Harington) who finds his reputation in tatters amid allegations of his purported correspondence with an 11-year-old actor (Tremblay). The two had maintained a transatlantic pen pal relationship for months, but when those email exchanges are publicly exposed, Harington’s actor is called into question as a relentless media storm begins to swirl.

Also starring Miss Sloane‘s Jessica Chastain, Natalie Portman, Susan Sarandon, Kathy BatesMichael Gambon, Thandie Newton and Scream Queens‘ star Bella ThorneThe Death And Life Of John F. Donovan will hop between two time periods. The second takes place about a decade later, »

‘Room’ Star Jacob Tremblay Joins Xavier Dolan’s ‘Death and Life of John F. Donovan’

8 February 2017 12:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jacob Tremblay has joined the cast of Xavier Dolan’s drama “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan” with shooting underway in Montreal.

Seville International is selling to international markets at the Berlin Film Festival. Tremblay will star alongside Kit Harington, Jessica Chastain, Natalie Portman, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates.

Principal photography will continue in Prague, the U.K. and New York. “John F. Donovan” stars Harrington an American TV star in his late twenties and his correspondence with a young actor-to-be, played by Tremblay, who is living with his mother (Portman) in England. Their lives take dramatic turns when the existence of their pen pal relationship is publicly exposed, sending Donovan in a downfall.

“The talent involved in this project is unparalleled,” said Anick Poirier of Seville International.  “Xavier is a visionary and he has proven once again that he attracts first class actors by adding Tremblay to this superb ensemble. »

New to Streaming: ‘Arrival,’ ‘A Separation,’ ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ ‘The Love Witch,’ and More

3 February 2017 9:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds. »

Win a War On Everyone Blu-ray signed by writer-director John Michael McDonagh

2 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the release of War On Everyone – available now on Digital Download, DVD & Blu-ray – we are giving away a copy on Blu-ray signed by writer-director John Michael McDonagh!

John Michael McDonagh, the award winning writer/director of The Guard and Calvary, heads stateside for this unapologetically offensive buddy movie comedy thriller, starring True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård and End of Watch’s Michael Peña, as a pair of crooked cops the likes of which you’ve never seen before.

Skarsgård and Peña really shine as the corrupt cops who get out of their depth, and share some wonderfully surreal, part-improvised moments, aided and abetted by a superb support casts that boasts Paul Reiser, Westworld sensation Tessa Thompson, and Caleb Landry Jones, a stand-out as strip club manager Birdwell.

Suffused with McDonagh’s trademark jet black humour, littered here with a generous helping of near-the-knuckle, take-no-prisoners gags, and featuring an off kilter, »

Ufc’s Conor McGregor turned down a key role in Shane Black’s The Predator

30 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fan of Mma or not, there’s no denying that Ufc star Conor McGregor is a hot commodity. WWE wants him in some sort of role, Game of Thrones showrunners have cast him in a bit part, and now it’s come to light that due to money and filming duration issues, he has turned down a key role in Shane Black’s The Predator.

AVPgalaxy has quoted the following from McGregor who spoke at An Experience With, stating: “I’ll tell you there’s a lot of offers that I’ve turned down. I got offered The Predator movie. There’s a new Predator movie coming out and the guys came to me – did you see that horse thing I’ve done, the horse racing? That was like three days’ solid work for a hell of a lot of money, for three days. During that three-day course, the people »
