Sometimes it feels as though superhero movies are pretty much the be all and end all of the movie world: not a single day seems to pass without something controversial happening in the realms of comic book adaptations, and discussion of these happenings tends to dominate the online conversation in ways that other movies simply cannot compare. Truth is, we’re all a little obsessed by it. The movie at the top of the obsession pile right now? Man of Steel 2, perhaps?
Last year, of course, this colossal sequel (nicknamed “Batman Vs. Superman” at the moment because that’s cool) found its Batman in Ben Affleck, and recently hired its villain in Jesse Eisenberg, who will be taking on the rather unexpected role of Lex Luthor. And not to forget that Jeremy Irons has stepped into fill the Alfred-shaped hole left by Michael Caine. And then there’s Gal Gadot, »

We open with a foundation challenge: the contestants must choose a motorcycle and design the rider. Daran wins for his tribal road warrior look. He has immunity this week.
The spotlight challenge pairs the contestants (they get to pick their own partner) and asks them to create a rock god. Each team selects a guitar, creates an extreme rock star to go with it, and literally fuse the rock god with his guitar.
Matt and Tess want to do a rockabilly goat. Cute, right? Tess has a panic attack when Michael Westmore tells her her goat sculpt looks more like a cat. Matt is super-supportive, and they get it all done - except that one of the horns falls off during close-up inspection. Ve feels it looks like Ron Perlman and Gary Busey got mashed up together. »

One of the key components to a successful horror film is a memorable adversary for the protagonists. Often, the villain is human, or once was. Sometimes the foe is a possessed home, or a revenant that just won’t die. In rare cases, the monster is something a little more… unusual. As evidenced in the list below, we sometimes discover the enemy is more bizarre than we could ever dream: evil objects, demonic playthings, even malevolent pastries... monsters come in many forms. With that said, it’s time to take a walk down memory lane and look at ten more of the most unconventional monsters in horror cinema history. [Check out our first ten here.] Note: To avoid a list that features nothing but SyFy Channel originals, we are only considering films that premiered in a medium other than cable television. Dolly Dearest The Child’s Play franchise is hands-down better than Dolly Dearest, and we »

(Cbr) The little hand says it’s time to rock and roll for Gerard Butler, who’s in final negotiations to star in Alcon Entertainment’s remake of "Point Break". According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 44-year-old Scottish actor would play Bodhi, the role originated by the late Patrick Swayze in the 1991 action film. Ericson Core, cinematographer of "The Fast & the Furious" and "Daredevil", is set to direct. Set against the backdrop of the Southern California surf scene, the original starred Reeves as Johnny Utah, a rookie FBI agent who, with his partner (Gary Busey), investigates a string of robberies committed by »

That “Point Break” remake has found its man. Well, one of them, anyway. “Olympus has Fallen” star Gerard Butler is said to be in final negotiations to play Bodhi, the role assayed by the late and great Patrick Swayze in the Kathryn Bigelow original. The script for the remake is from “Equilibrium’s” Kurt Wimmer, and will be set in the international world of extreme sports instead of California surfers. Like the 1991 movie, the plot of the remake will follow awesomely named FBI agent Johnny Utah as he infiltrates a group of bank robbers led by Bodhi. The producers still need someone to play Johnny Utah, along with his FBI handler, originally played by Gary Busey (back before he became known for being crazy). It’s too bad Paul Walker passed away, because imagine if they had cast him in the Keanu Reeves role. Walker has already played the character »
Butler has been set to star in Lionsgate’s “Gods of Egypt” and in “London is Falling,” the sequel to “Olympus Has Fallen.”
Alcon came on board the project in 2011 by securing film rights from Rgm Media, John McMurrick and Chris Taylor. In addition to the feature rights, Alcon also obtained TV and gaming rights. »

Okay, it’s time to sick Gary Busey on some people. Yesterday, I reported on a few items from a recent mailbag on Batman-On-Film. In the report, I made it clear that none of this was to be taken as fact. I even included the author’s own disclaimer at the top of the mailbag. Then, when it got down to this item regarding Wonder Woman’s origin in Batman vs Superman I specifically prefaced it with “He also speculates that she, and the island of Amazons from which she comes, will be descendants of the Kryptonians that landed on earth centuries ago to survey the planet.”
But then what happened? Everyone and their mother Lost Their Minds. There was a mass deletion in people’s brains of what the definition of “speculation” is, and people started reporting on it and discussing it as if they’d just heard Zack Snyder say it himself. »

Director: Henry Saine.
Running Time: 89 minutes.
Synopsis: Bounty killers compete for body count, fame and a fat stack of cash. They’re ending the plague of corporate greed and providing the survivors of the apocalypse with retribution. This is the age of the Bounty Killer.
Set in an outlandish future where the bankers and corporate fat cats responsible for the collapse of the economy are hunted down and killed for cash, there is much to like about director Henry Saine’s latest indie offering. Bounty Killer makes no apologies for its diabolical direction and nor should it as we follow ridiculously-named superstar slayers Drifter (Matthew Marsden) and Mary Death (Christian Pitre) as they weald an assortment of weaponry on their cartoon violent quest. Of course, it’s absurd in its social commentary, »
