Danny Trejo is Dead Again in Tombstone, watch the trailer here

20 June 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Universal Pictures has announced that Danny Trejo is set to return as the infamous gang leader Guerrero de la Cruz in the all-new action packed adventure Dead Again in Tombstone, the follow-up to 2013’s action-horror western Dead in Tombstone, which is set for a home entertainment release this September.

The devil’s outlaw and reluctant servant, Guerrero (Danny Trejo, Machete) returns from the dead again in this action-packed western which promises to be one hell of a ride. Guerrero is forced to protect a stolen relic from getting into the hands of Jackson Boomer (Jake Busey, Starship Troopers) and his gang of soldiers, but Jackson will stop at nothing to raise his comrades from the dead and bring the wrath of hell upon earth. Guerrero must use all his dark powers in order to defeat Jackson and find redemption…or die again trying.

Muscles, mullets and Malkovich: has Con Air got even weirder with age?

6 June 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

When Hollywood strapped Nicolas Cage, John Malkovich and a host of bad guys into a plane and crashed it on Vegas, what was the result? An action hit that was half prison flick, half rock video – and is, 20 years on, still dangerous

A ridiculous movie when it was released in June 1997, Nicolas Cage’s bumpy flight Con Air only seems more absurd 20 years later. The debut of UK director Simon West, it is a thundering action blowout so loud, haywire and sentimental that – in perhaps the ultimate backhanded compliment – it is often misidentified as a Michael Bay movie. Certainly it feels like a natural bridge between two of Bay’s pre-Transformers hits: 1996’s The Rock, where Cage first seemed to get a real taste for being an action star, and 1998’s Armageddon, another high-concept blockbuster hip to the benefits of recruiting an overqualified ensemble. All three movies bear the glossy, »

Blu-ray Review – Heat: Director’s Definitive Edition (1995)

9 May 2017 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Heat: Director’s Definitive Edition, 1995.

Directed by Michael Mann.

Starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Ashley Judd, Mykelti Willliamson, Natalie Portman, Amy Brenneman, and Hank Azaria.


Heat has been released on Blu-ray before in a pretty definitive edition, but this new one features remastered video from a 4K scan supervised by director Michael Mann, along with a new audio mix. The bonus features found on the two-disc DVD and earlier Blu-ray were ported to this edition, which also has two new discussions from 2015 and 2016 with Mann and many of the cast members.

Can a crime drama be considered epic? Sure, movies like The Godfather Parts I and II and Casino would fall into that category, but they’re films that take place over long periods of time that trace a rise-and-fall arc. Heat’s story unfolds along a relatively short timeline, but »

Official Trailer for Ensemble Crime Comedy Film 'All About the Money'

5 May 2017 3:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

"He told me we were going on vacation. I didn't know we was gunna be doing Rambo s&*t." Ugh, this looks so bad. Gravitas Ventures has debuted the official trailer for a crime comedy titled All About the Money, featuring an eclectic cast of actors. The wacky plot involves two "down on their luck" friends who are convinced by another friend to go on a vacation. Only after landing in Colombia do they realize that they are there to attempt to capture America's most wanted criminal - with no military training. The film stars Eddie Griffin, Blake Freeman, Casper Van Dien, Jon Gries, Mindy Robinson, Lin Shaye, as well as Danny Trejo. This looks like another movie right out of the 90s - totally ridiculous plot, ridiculous characters, lots of guns, absurd action. What more could you ask for? Oh right, some genuine humor maybe. Here's the official trailer »

Danny Trejo Posts His "Lost" 'Star Wars' Audition Tape

4 May 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Nailed it. 

Danny Trejo on Thursday got in on the fun of everyone else celebrating Star Wars Day by posting his "lost" Star Wars audition tape.

The actor has played a badass in numerous films, including Heat, Con Air, Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn and Machete, among others, but it seems he was going for a softer role when he "auditioned" for A New Hope.

In the short clip, Trejo, wearing Princess Leia buns, delivers the classic line, "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."

Almost as soon as the line is out, Trejo cracks up laughing.

A Heat Prequel Is Coming from Michael Mann, But It's Not What You Think

27 April 2017 4:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been over two decades since director Michael Mann unleashed his action-packed classic Heat onto the world, which still has legions of devoted fans to this day. While there have never been any official plans for a sequel, the director will now revisit this iconic crime saga in a prequel novel he is writing with celebrated crime author Reed Farrel Coleman. The novel is expected to be published next year under the filmmaker's Michael Mann Books imprint at William Morrow/HarperCollins.

Deadline reports that this book, which doesn't have a title at this time, will provide an origin story for all of the L.A.-based criminals and law enforcement officers that are featured in the 1995 movie. This book will delve into how Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) met Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer), Michael Cherrito (Tom Sizemore) and Trejo (Danny Trejo) in Folsom Prison, and formed his crew. This story will also feature McCauley's mentor, »

Exclusive interview with Black Rose star Alexander Nevsky

david j. moore chats with Black Rose star Alexander Nevsky

Western Audiences may not be familiar with bodybuilder-turned action star Alexander Nevsky, but in Russia he’s a bona fide star. Nevsky has been quietly creating his own projects to star in, starting with the surprisingly earnest and stellar film Moscow Heat, which emulated the Walter Hill actioner Red Heat, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Speaking of Schwarzenegger, Nevsky’s build, voice, and demeanor are a striking ringer for Arnold, and Nevsky knows this and plays it to his benefit. Nevsky’s other films include the also quite entertaining genre hybrid mashup Treasure Raiders, which combined the best ingredients of The Fast and the Furious and National Treasure, and he’s back with this year’s serial killer thriller/action film Black Rose, co-starring Kristanna Loken, and a little later in the year with the Expendables-type action flick Showdown in Manila, which »

18 actors whose characters were cut out of movies in post-production

24 April 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 28, 2017

The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...

Yep, I know. I’ve read lists like this too, and I know that Eric Stoltz was cut out of Back To The Future. If it’s all well and good, I’ll leave that example out.

See related  Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection Alien 5: will it ever happen?

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.

Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. For the side effect »

Crowdfund This: Bullets Of Justice, aka Wtf Did I Just Watch??!!

13 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Wtf did I just watch??? During the Third World War, the American government initiates a secret project code named "Army Bacon" in order to create super soldier by inbreeding human beings with pigs. 25 years later a breed called "Muzzles" have occupied top of the food chain, eating and farming humans like animals. Watch Danny Trejo ham it up in the trailer for Bullets Of Justice, a pigshit insane TV pilot in need of crowdfunding pork for post-production. The tail-curling teaser looks good enough to suggest a feature film - if they've really hogged it all for just a pilot, then we may be looking at the the most pignacious and deboarched episode of TV ever created.    Timur Turisbekov from Khazakstan appears to be...

Robert Rodriguez in talks to direct ‘Escape from New York’ remake

25 March 2017 2:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robert Rodriguez is hard at work on post-production of next year’s sci-fi epic, Alita: Battle Angel, but that hasn’t stopped him from lining up his next job. Word has reached us that the Texan director has his sights set on the Escape from New York remake.

The project has been in the works for several years, with various other directors and actors attached at various points, but the studio is hoping that Rodriguez will stick. Given that his current Battle Angel film had also been in production limbo for ridiculous amount of time, he might very well be the man to bring it to life.

The original film was released back in 1981 and helped cement Kurt Russell as a major player in Hollywood. In the film, Russell played Snake Plissken, a one-eyed warrior with plenty of attitude. Set in what was the future (the year 1997) back then, the »
