Trailer for action thriller Standoff starring Thomas Jane and Laurence Fishburne

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A first trailer has arrived online for the upcoming action thriller Standoff starring Thomas Jane (The Punisher) and Laurence Fishburne (Hannibal), and we have it for you below after the official synopsis…

Combat veteran Carter Greene (Jane) lives alone in a rustic farmhouse where he grieves the death of his young son and the resulting failure of his marriage. Meanwhile, Bird is an orphan who’s experienced too much loss for somebody so young. As Bird mourns her parents on the anniversary of their death, she watches a professional assassin storm the graveyard and kill a group of funeral goers. Terrified, Bird springs into the woods, followed closely by the sadistic assassin Sade (Fishburne). She eventually takes shelter in Carter’s farmhouse, where Carter vows to protect her and avenge the murder of her family.

Standoff is slated for release later this year.

Standoff Trailer: Laurence Fishburne Is Very, Very Angry

3 September 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

A priest presiding over a funeral is the first one to get shot in the trailer for Standoff. Laurence Fishburne continues firing away, eliminating witnesses until one is left, a bespectacled little girl in a red dress (Ella Ballentine) taking photographs. She flees Fishburne and finds refuge in a nearby home with Thomas Jane, who wields a big shotgun. The only problem is, he's only got one bullet left. And Laurence Fishburne is very, very angry. The movie was filmed on location in Ontario, Canada. Adam Alleca wrote and directed; he received a co-writing credit on the 2009 remake The Last House on the Left, which I thought was a pretty good, intense effort. I'm not sure what Voltage Pictures has planned for release yet. But the imagery...

6 Horror Films That Deserve Sequels

30 August 2015 9:53 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Neil Hudson

For every horror film there seems to be an insurmountable pile of lesser sequels trailing behind it. Every A Nightmare on Elm Street yields an A Nightmare on Elm Street: Part 2… or Freddy’s Dead. Classics like Hellraiser eventually get dragged down into a quagmire of dirge, and not even Clive Barker’s promise to produce a reboot can make alleviate the suffering you’ve already gone through having watched Hellraiser: Inferno.

Here, we’re taking a look at horror films that never got their chance at a second film, and how future filmmakers might go about putting their stamp on them…

The Shining

This film already has a sequel written and ready to go. Unfortunately, Doctor Sleep, by Stephen King, follows on more directly from the book. Stephen King has considerable reservations regarding the quality of Kubrick’s magnum opus; it’s a »

9 incredible fan films that put Hollywood to shame: What would happen if Batman battled a Predator?

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

Forget your $250 million budgets and A-list megastars, sometimes all you need to make a good film is a bit of creative thinking and passion for your characters (intellectual property rights optional).

With feature-length fan film Star Trek: Renegades setting fandom abuzz, here's a host of unauthorised movies that put Hollywood to shame.

1. Batman battles Predator

Back in the Dark Knight's movie wilderness years (thanks for that, George Clooney!), short Batman: Dead End made waves online thanks to a mega-twist that saw the Caped Crusader in a rain-soaked showdown against a Predator. If it bleeds, Batman can kill it.

2. A Judge gets back in the saddle

A tepid box office showing from 2012's Dredd means a sequel is probably never going to happen. However, hardcore fans had their thirst quenched by the moody Judge Minty, about an ageing Mega City One Judge striding through the Cursed Earth. Think of this as »

Ten Best: Beasts On Film

27 August 2015 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Beasts have always provided fantastic source material for horror filmmakers across the ages, whether from the mythical world or the natural. To celebrate the release of Into the Grizzly Maze last week we take a look back at some the biggest, baddest beasts on film…

Into the Grizzly Maze (2015)

Starring James Marsden, Thomas Jane and Billy Bob Thornton, Into the Grizzly Maze tells the story of a sheriff (Jane), thrown into turmoil when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc in a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother (Marsden) he enters the labyrinthine Grizzly Maze to track down his missing wife, before the bear does. As the body count mounts, things are only further complicated when an infamous bear hunter (Thornton) enters the fray, determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life…

Meat is Murder in Into the Grizzly Maze: A Film Review

13 August 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Sony Pictures. Director: David Hackl. Writers: Jack Reher and Guy Moshe. Cast: James Marsden, Thomas Jane, Piper Perabo, Scott Glenn and Billy Bob Thornton. “When a grizzly gets angry, they don't give a shit whether you're a logger or a treehugger. All of you taste the same.” David Hackl (Saw V) and his all-star cast take you deep into Alaska's picturesque woods in search of a killer bear in Into The Grizzly Maze. The film, which was actually shot in Vancouver, is an intense thriller with a clear moral agenda—to raise awareness about our destructive role in environmental degradation. While the film's message is strong, it's not too heavy-handed in its delivery, still allowing for an action-packed “natural horror”adventure. Though unnecessary, the celebrity cast makes for a more enjoyable watch; it's fun to see big name actors »

Exclusive: Chad Coleman Talks The Walking Dead

13 August 2015 12:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Walking Dead is currently one of the most popular television shows on the planet. Its compelling characters, thought provoking storylines an unapologetic violence has seen the series increase its ratings and viewership for almost five years. In fact, the next two months will not only mark the beginning of its sixth season, but also a brand new prequel series titled Fear The Walking Dead.

Certainly not bad for a series many doubted would last more than one season. However, if there is one aspect of Fox’s gritty survival drama that viewers share a love/hate relationship with…it’s the fact that fan-favourite characters are frequently featured on the chopping block. Although this is a fundamental aspect of a series built around a post-apocalyptic America, it’s always heartbreaking when that time comes round to say goodbye to certain characters.

In the latest edition of Comics to Read Before You Die, Jessie Robertson looks at The Punisher: Welcome Back, Frank…

Writer Garth Ennis

For people who are fans of the Punisher (Ooh, Me, Me!), whether he’s depicted in comics, television, film, there’s always a fine balance to strike between how violent and ruthless can he be. For me, he’s the Punisher; he punishes the guilty; now how he does that, I leave up to him. I think when you have a broader audience you’re trying to introduce to the character, as in film or television, there’s a need to hold back on the violence he extracts, to rein it in as to not »
