John Wick 2 is currently shooting. And today, we have the first photos of Keanu Reeves on set. He returns as the deadly assassin in this highly-anticipated sequel. And from the looks of things, the bad guys still aren't going to catch a break this second time around. These first images come from an eagle-eyed Twitter user, as production is carried out on location in and around New York City.
John Wick arrived in 2014, and wasn't a blockbuster hit. It only earned $43 million off a $20 million budget, with a worldwide take of $86 million. But the film was a massive success with genre fans and critics alike. And it has now spawned a multi-media franchise. As you can see in the photos, Keanu Reeves is back in top physical form as formally-retired professional killer John Wick. Also returning from the first movie this time around are Lance Reddick, Ian McShane and John Leguizamo, »
A three-hankie weepie that harks back in its melodramatic rhythms and constantly moves forward (or so it at least thinks) with its use of digital 3D, Every Thing Will Be Fine, Wim Wenders‘ first narrative feature since Palermo Shooting, is always flirting with being a white elephant. It would only require, say, two more bad scenes — more bizarre choices with regard to the performances, more bits of dialogue that get to the heart of a character’s grief with the grace of a drunk lumberjack, or at least fewer pretty images — to teeter into chaos. And this is what ultimately makes the picture most worthwhile: even those moments that raise the eyebrows sky-high still have a weird integrity and determination skating under the surface.
Approximately half the things you need to know about this movie are contained in its first few minutes, where treacly music and wistful snowflakes — all dancing »

A healthy Twitch thumbs up to producer and showrunner Peter Settman who clearly knows his way around a title along with cult hero character actor Peter Stormare, who always seems to embrace the chance to be the butt of the joke.Settman's Brain Academy have announced their upcoming series Swedish Dicks in which Stomare and John Glans - the unintentionally hilarious in this context last name appears to be legitimate - co-star as a pair of unlicensed Swedish private detectives trying to survive in downtown Los Angeles. Stormare is also on board as a co-producer. The first original series commissioned by Nordic streaming service Viaplay there is no word yet as to international distribution....

Writer/director Christopher Nolan adapted Memento from a short story by his brother Jonathan Nolan titled “Memento Mori”, and the unusual, neo-noir psychological thriller took audiences by storm upon release in 2000 and has since achieved cult hit status with a fervent following.
Starring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Joe Pantoliano, Memento was lauded for its nonlinear narrative structure and motifs of memory, perception, grief, and self-deception. The film was a box office success and received numerous accolades, including Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing.
Nolan’s original Memento follows Leonard (played by Guy Pearce) who is tracking down the man who raped and murdered his wife. The difficulty, however, of locating his wife’s killer is compounded by the fact that he suffers from a rare, »

Nordic digital platform Viaplay is plotting its first original series, titled Swedish Dicks.
The series is about two Swedes working as unlicensed private investigators in downtown Los Angeles.
Settman said: “We are thrilled to deliver the first Viaplay original series, starring the largest names from Sweden’s acting and humor elite. Swedish Dicks is nothing you have ever seen before, the perfect mixture of laugh-out-loud moments and dialogues with a more serious undertone.”
The series will start showing throughout the Nordics, exclusively on Viaplay, in 2016.
Viaplay is part of the Modern Times Group.

How do you solve a problem like Frank Winter? If you’re Colonel Darrow, you make him your secret insurance policy for a bomb program run by a mercurial genius and an inexperienced wunderkind. If you’re the writers of Manhattan, you let him slink back onto the Hill, neatly tie up some plot threads, and yank the whole story forward six months as happens in “The World of Tomorrow,” which serves as an unofficial midseason finale.
The episode, directed by Daniel Stern, begins right where “Overlord” ended—Frank telling Charlie that the Germans don’t have a bomb—and then jumps ahead to New Year’s Eve 1944, using newly spiffed up reporter Woodrow Lorentzen as a device to explain how they got there. Using interviews to move »

The first trailer has arrived online for Hail, Caesar!, the new film from the Coen Brothers, and you can view it in the player below…
The first effort from the Coens’ since 2013’s Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film is described as a “musical comedy” and sees a hot-short studio “fixer” (played by Josh Brolin) have to try to find the star of a new historical epic (George Clooney) after he is kidnapped.
As usual, the film promises the usual amount of Coens magic, with a hugely impressive cast to boot. In addition to Brolin and Clooney, both of whom have worked with the directors before, the film also stars Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Tilda Swinton (A Bigger Splash), Frances McDormand (Fargo), Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker), Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Peter Stormare (Fargo), Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) and Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel).

I’ve been gaming for years, for longer than I have been a horror fan in fact. From the ZX81 through the Acorn Electron, Commodore 64, Nes, Snes, Megadrive and beyond, and even back in the early days there were attempts to meld video games and movies. Be it cinematic style games like It Came From the Desert to the huge push into full motion video games like Mad Dog McCree. There have even been horror video games based on the likes of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, though both of those games never made it to UK shores because, back then, games were for “kids” only.
Of course we’ve had games like the Trilobyte-produced PC games The 7th Guest and 11th Hour, which captured the scares perfectly and then there’s the controversial Night Trap on the Mega CD – a game which was one of »
