Demi Lovato is feeling all kinds of “Confident” these days.

Video premiere Oct. 9th!!!!” Lovato posted, along with a brief video snippet.

Having first graced the big screen as mop-headed slacker Ted Theodore Logan in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Keanu Reeves has since become one of Hollywood’s ‘go to’ actors when explosive action is the order of the day, starring in numerous edge-of-your-seat thrillers including Point Break, Speed and The Matrix. His most recent film, John Wick, which sees Reeves play a former hitman hell-bent on revenge as he returns to the criminal world he left behind in out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
With a career spanning over three decades, Reeves is rarely far from his next on-screen adventure, but what about some of those action heroes we haven’t heard from in a while? We decided to track down a few of our favourites.

Directed by Takashi Miiki
Japanese auteur Takashi Miike’s latest film, Yakuza Apocalypse, is a genre-bending trip into absurdity. Miike is known for pushing boundaries and testing the limits of what’s acceptable on screen. Those familiar with his past work shouldn’t be surprised by Yakuza Apocalypse’s wildly incoherent narrative. In his latest film, Miike takes elements from martial arts films, gangster movies, and horror flicks, and mashes them all together to form a cinematic chimera. While the thought of combining vampires, cowboys, and crime syndicates into one film sounds like a compelling idea, in actuality Yakuza Apocalypse is far less than the sum of its parts.
Kamiura (Lily Franky) is a Robin Hood-esque local Yakuza boss whose altruism is one of the last things holding his struggling neighborhood together. Kamiura’s community views him as an upstanding citizen, until an »

The El Rey Network and producer Mark Burnett have announced that the Lucha Libre wrestling series Lucha Underground has been given the green light for a second season, with the action-packed character-driven series set to go back into production in Los Angeles later this year ahead of its return in early 2016.
“We brought together some of the best athletes from lucha libre and wrestling to fight in Los Angeles this year on ‘Lucha Underground‘. It was fresh, it was compelling and it got the attention and created buzz across the entire wrestling world,” said Executive Producer Mark Burnett.
“The explosive combination of athleticism and storytelling makes for such great television and I’m so pleased that this legendary wrestling tradition will continue to have a home on El Rey Network,” adds El Rey Network chairman and founder Robert Rodriguez.
Ancient tradition, extraordinary athleticism, and a flare for theatrics combine in »

The Tracking Board reports that the project “is taking a unique approach in that it’s attempting to reinvent the haunted house genre in a terrifying new way, described as a very individual spin on the horror genre, much like how Cloverfield was a new take on monster movies.”
The film is said to be similar in tone to Eisener’s short One Last Dive, and will feature first-person Pov sequences and underwater action scenes.
Eisener got his breakthrough when his Hobo with a Shotgun trailer won a contest to feature in Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse double-bill. The trailer was adapted to a feature in 2011, while Eisener has since contributed segments to the anthology horrors The ABCs of Death and V/H »

The cast of Robert Rodriguez‘s “From Dusk Till Dawn” sat down with TheWrap to talk about changes to the show for Season 2. At the Television Critics Association summer press tour last month, the stars of the show teased new directions for their characters in the El Rey horror series’ second year. “Their days as a duo come to an end in Season 1,” Zane Holtz said of his character Richie Gecko’s partnership with his brother Seth, played by D.J. Cotrona. “So going into Season 2, we’re seeing new partnerships.” Also read: 'From Dusk Till Dawn's' Danny Trejo Describes The Regulator as a. »

Danny Trejo, who won two boxing titles while serving time in prison in his youth, is best known playing the ethnic heavy in hyper-macho mid-’90s genre films like “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Desperado” and “Blood In, Blood Out.” These days, he’s in such demand that this year alone he’s attached to more than 20 projects, including Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn” TV series. It was his role in another TV project, as Raul Galindez in the TV movie “Shannon’s Deal,” written by John Sayles, that earned him his first mention in Variety.
What do you remember about “Shannon’s Deal”?
We shot that in Philadelphia. And we did a scene in the Spectrum where the 76ers used to play. I was walking around the Spectrum holding a machine gun. And Michael Jordan was still with the Bulls, who were playing the 76ers. And that’s about it. »

Jeff Fahey is a film legend as far as this writer is concerned. Not many things can stand up to Eric Red’s Body Parts of hell, even Psycho III. Fahey is an actor who embodies every role he’s ever had and is one of the most entertaining performers to watch on screen. When news broke that Fahey would be joining the second season of the El Rey Network’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series as “Uncle Eddie”, a relative to the Gecko brothers who has his own secrets going on, it was enough to make me even more anxious about the show that I already was.
We caught up with Jeff to chat a bit about his involvement in From Dusk Till Dawn, his frequent collaborations with director Robert Rodriguez and a bit about Body Parts, and as always, it was an absolute joy. Read on!

How do you go about adapting a supposedly unadapatable text? While faithful translations tend not to artistically successful, a faithful adaptation with fetishistic attention to detail can create something unique. While Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller had it comparatively easy when adapting Miller’s Sin City to screen as they more or less would just be recreating paintings but with moving parts, Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation painstakingly recreated much of Alan Moore’s tome by hand, capturing much of Moore’s world in camera. Snyder creates a lived-in and breathing universe, a key part to selling the idea to the audience of this time-hopping opus about the natural decline of superheroism. Watchmen is often accused of being too literal, speaking in the language of comics instead of cinema, but it is precisely this literal approach that makes Watchmen a stellar page-to-screen success. By being a “literal” film, it becomes personal, »
20. Story of Ricky (Lik wong) – Starring Siu-Wong Fan as the titular character, Riki Oh, based on a manga series which eventually became an anime, marks the end of an era of Japanese exploitation flicks, before the new generation of filmmakers such as Takashi Miike took over. Unlike Miike’s movies, or other recent entries such as Tokyo Gore Police, Riki Oh’s tone borders on comedy, played up by bad voice dubbing, foolish plot lines, cartoonish gore and eccentric characters (including a one-eyed assistant warden with a hook for a hand). For a prison film, the movie never seems mean-spirited, and if anything it masquerades as a bizarre superhero flick. The effects are the main draw – Riki Oh exists simply to showcase several outlandish set pieces, ramping up the level of violence, gore and action with each new scene. Made before the days of CGI, director Lam relies simply on practical effects, »
