Saw V director, David Hackl, returns to horror with Grizzly. Also known as Endangered and Red Machine, this title involves a grizzly bear on a rampage and two brothers lost in the Alaskan wilderness. Grizzly stars: James Marsden, Piper Perabo, Billy Bob Thornton and Thomas Jane. A trailer for this feature has recently been released. The story begins with several disappearances. Loggers and rangers make great bear food, but this grizzly bear has his sights on two brothers. Blood streaks and claw marks will mar many of the characters, before this 500 lb beast is overcome. The trailer for Grizzly is full of gore. Actor Billy Bob Thornton can be seen marked by this great beast. Other minor characters are reduced to bloody pools and Grizzly looks like a film for gorehounds. The official trailer for the film is below. Release Date: 2014. Director: David Hackl. Writers: Guy Moshe and J.R. Reher. »

Thomas Jane is in my opinion one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. The guy is extremely talented, but for some reason he's not utilized in the movies. He was great in films like The Punisher and The Mist, and he should be doing more.
The SyFy Channel has brought him in to star in a new sci-fi thriller called The Expanse. It's based on the best-selling book series known for titles such as Leviathan Wakes.
According to Variety this will be a 10-hour drama, which is described as "a space opera that is set 200 years in the future." The story follows a character named Detective Miller (Jane), "a native of 'the Asteroid Belt' between Mars and Jupiter where he is a dedicated cop for the corporate security force operating as the law in the Belt. He finds a new sense of purpose when he and a rogue ship »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

Humankind’s collision with otherworldly life forms can make for unforgettable cinema.
This article will highlight the best of live-action human vs. alien films. The creatures may be from other planets or may be non-demonic entities from other dimensions.
Excluded from consideration were giant monster films as the diakaiju genre would make a great subject for separate articles.
Readers looking for “friendly alien” films such as The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), It Came from Outer Space (1953) and the comically overrated Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) are advised to keep watching the skies because they won’t find them here.
Film writing being the game of knowledge filtered through personal taste that it is, some readers’ subgenre favorites might not have made the list such as War of the Worlds (1953) and 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957).
Now let’s take a chronological look at the cinema’s best battles between Us and Them. »

Triple Golden Globe nominee Thomas Jane has been cast in the upcoming television adaptation of the Leviathan Wakes book series by James S.A. Corey. Syfy has ordered The Expanse straight to a 10 episode series, adding it to a list of new ventures for the cable network, which also includes 12 Monkeys, Dominion, Olympus, Ascension and Z Nation.
With Jane in the role of Miller – a detective working for a corporate security force in the Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter – the story takes place 200 years in the future, when Miller takes on the case of a missing heiress. During the course of his investigation, he crosses paths with a rogue ship’s captain, and the pair find themselves on the trail of a far bigger, more dangerous conspiracy, that threatens to cause galactic conflict.

While Syfy may suffer from the occasional Sharknado, every once in a while they attempt to bring some real science-fiction onto the screen. Case in point: The Expanse, a new series adapted from James S.A. Corey's "Leviathan Wakes" series.
