Lou Ferrigno to dish out ‘Instant Death’

22 May 2015 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bodybuilding legend, and star of the hit 70’s TV show The Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno is to star in Instant Death, the latest film from Raging Pictures. The gritty, revenge thriller will be directed by Ara Paiaya, whose previous film Skin Traffik (known in the UK as A Hitman In London) is currently being released around the World.

The film marks something of a departure for Ferrigno who has predominantly done family and comedy films over the years (but has appeared in a handful of more violent films) and has regularly cameoed in some form with Marvels recent incarnations of the Hulk.

“A vicious gang war for drug dominance draws in a disturbed Special Forces Veteran (Ferrigno). Trying to adjust to normal life and haunted by inner demons and a violent past, the underworld’s retribution on his daughter and grandchild (his last connections to humanity) leads him to a »

In Defence Of... Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama Hulk

16 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At the time of writing, Marvel have not yet confirmed a third standalone Hulk movie, but without giving anything away, the closing events of Avengers: Age of Ultron definitely leave that door wide open. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time to re-appraise ol' greenskin's first big screen outing, Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama, Hulk.

Released in 2003, Hulk took a total of $132.2 million at the Us box office, just short of its reputed £137 million budget. Though it eventually took over $245 million worldwide, it was perceived as a flop, significantly under-performing compared to the likes of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man or Bryan Singer's X-Men movies. Hulk not box-office Smash, in other words. Critics weren't overly kind either – it earned 62% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, indicating decidedly mixed reviews albeit with a positive slant.

Based on the Marvel comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby »

Watch Stan Lee give a cameo acting masterclass to Tara Reid and Lou Ferrigno

30 April 2015 4:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stan Lee is the world's greatest cameo actor, and now he's passing on his wisdom to the next generation.

The actor filmed a tongue-in-cheek masterclass with stars like Tara Reid, Michael Rooker, Lou Ferrigno and Jason Mewes, telling them how to make the most of the briefest of on-screen appearances.

"I didn't get to be the world's greatest cameo actor overnight," he says. "It took years of hard work."

The video was released to coincide with the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, following Lee's many fleeting guest appearances in Marvel films.

Over the years, Lee has popped up in Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and The Avengers.

He has also made appearances in multiple Spider-Man movies, and made an animated cameo in Disney and Marvel's Big Hero 6.

Marvel Needs the Rights from Universal to Make Solo 'Hulk' Movie

14 April 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ever since Mark Ruffalo stepped up to play the Hulk in The Avengers, and the character became a favorite among Marvel fans, there's been plenty of demand for another solo movie for the big guy. While there have been rumblings from Ruffalo and even Lou Ferrigno about another Hulk movie coming soon, there hasn't been any solid development on that front. There have been rumors of a lead-up to Planet Hulk, even involving Guardians of the Galaxy, but James Gunn has denied that plan adamantly. Well, now we know why there hasn't been progress on a solo adventure for the Hulk: Marvel doesn't have the rights. Yes, Marvel Studios has the right to use Hulk in The Avengers franchise, but Universal, who made the Edward Norton version with ties into the Marvel cinematic universe, still holds the rights for standalone Hulk movies. Ruffalo confirmed this fact (via Collider) while »

Lou Ferrigno Brings His Sons to the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" Premiere -- And They're So Handsome!

14 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Lou Ferrigno has some good genes! The original Hulk attended the Los Angeles premiere "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on Monday night with his handsome sons, Brent and Lou Ferrigno, Jr. The 63-year-old actor proudly showed off his brood on the red carpet, posing for pictures in a red sport coat, dark jeans and an Incredible Hulk tie (of course!). Lou Jr. (right) is following in the footsteps of his famous father to pursue a career in acting. You might recognize the 30-year-old hunk from recent guest-starring roles on "NCIS," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" and "Nashville." He also is set to appear in upcoming films, "Perception," "Muse" and "Urban Myths" later this year. Meanwhile, Brent, 25, (left) appeared on the family's reality show, "The Incredible Ferrignos," back in 2011.    We love that Lou brought his kids to the premiere -- talk about some handsome sidekicks!  Check out the gallery »

6 Cancelled Daredevil TV shows, Cartoons and Video Games

9 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the new Daredevil series released today, Luke Owen looks back at some cancelled Daredevil projects…

Daredevil is arguably one of the cornerstones of the Marvel Universe. First leaping into comic book pages in 1964, Daredevil has become one of the most popular characters in the comic publisher’s history and has brought some of the most captivating stories from some of the biggest names in the industry. He’s often seen as Marvel’s Batman, and his conflicted personality that is riddled with Catholic Guilt makes for a fascinating case study.

So why the hell did it taken so long for him to be something other than a comic book character? Well, there were actually several attempts made across a variety of different mediums from as early as the mid-1970s, but it wouldn’t be until Ben Affleck zipped up his burgundy leather suit in 2003 that Daredevil finally got »

The Evolution of Daredevil’s Costume

8 April 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at the evolution of Daredevil’s costume…

Ahead of The Man Without Fear making his re-debut on TV/laptop screens this Friday with Netflix’s Daredevil, there has been a lot of talk about his costume. Many were surprised when they revealed they would start things off with the Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s 1993 look from Man Without Fear, but Charlie Cox himself has confirmed that we will see the iconic red suit at some point. So with all this talk of Daredevil’s costume, lets see how it has changed over the years.

1964 – And it was all yellow

In his humble beginnings, Matt Murdock wore a yellow and black costume with a single giant D in the middle of it, however this would only last for six issues and would be changed by Daredevil #7. We would see this yellow suit again during a »

‘Avengers Grimm’ Review

31 March 2015 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Casper Van Dien, Lauren Parkinson, Lou Ferrigno, Milynn Sarley, Marah Fairclough, Rileah Vanderbilt, Elizabeth Peterson, Kimo Leopoldo, Henry Foster Brown, Jonathan Medina, Daniel Nemes | Written and Directed by Jeremy M. Inman

Sometimes you see a trailer for a movie and know it’s perfect for you… that was Avengers Grimm for me. So much so that I specifically hunted down a copy for review!

An off-the-wall mix of Grimm Fairy tale characters and superhero team-up movies which, frankly, should have been obvious given the title, Avengers Grimm is the latest film from the schlockmeisters The Asylum – you know, those folks behind such films as Transmorphers, Hercules Reborn, Sharknado and a myriad of other mockbusters, cash-ins and giant sea creature movies.

Like many and Asylum movie, the plot is relatively simple: when Rumpelstiltskin uses the Magic Mirror to escapes to the modern world taking Snow White with him and destroying the mirror in the process, »

Exclusive Interview: Alan Tudyk Talks ‘Con Man’ And ‘Firefly’

25 March 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.

Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

You know you’re in trouble with a direct to DVD movie when the writer has a resume whose titles are made up of over 50% direct to DVD sequels to films that a) didn’t deserve a sequel or, even worse, b) didn’t need a sequel. Yes, from the pen of Michael Weiss – who has written such lauded films as Octopus 2, I Always Know What You Did Last Summer, The Butterfly Effect 2 and Hostel III – comes The Scorpion King 4.

Female superhero adaptations that nearly happened

18 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Wonder Woman to Red Sonja, here are the female comic book projects that we’ve missed out on…

Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.

Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.

This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »

The Best Green Things In Movies and TV

16 March 2015 11:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  On this day, we honor the culture of the Emerald Isle by adorning ourselves in its hues.   But green is not just the color of holiday-themed accessories. It also has an illustrious history of playing critical roles in our films and television programs. Below are some of the greatest appearances green has made on our screens.  Erin go bragh!  – All the way to the box office! 17. The Curtains in "Sound of Music"   What better way to introduce a family of neglected children to the concept of fun clothes than with a little splash of green, even if it is from the furniture. 16. The Green Man in “Always Sunny in Philadelphia" Green may not be proud of Paddy's pub, but Paddy's is proud of it. 15. Luke’s lightsaber in “Return of the Jedi. For episode six, Skywalker’s blue lightsaber got an extreme makeover. Two green thumbs way up! »
