Kontroll And Predators Director Nimrod Antal Returns To Hungary For The Whiskey Robber

10 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

It was all the way back in 2003 that young Hungarian director Nimrod Antal burst on to the scene with Kontroll, a super stylish action-comedy-thriller hybrid revolving around subway workers in Budapest. The film marked Antal as a director to watch and, sure enough, Hollywood was watching and he's been working in English on this side of the ocean ever since with his Us career hitting its peak with the one two punch of the Robert Rodriguez produced Predators and 3D concert film Metallica Through The Never. But now he's headed home. Antal's next film will be his first Hungarian effort since Kontroll, a large scaled biopic of Attila Ambrus - a Hungarian born in Romania who requested asylum in Hungary in 1988 and launched...

Death Comes Rolling In The Kills On Wheels Trailer

19 April 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

It wasn't so long ago that Hungary felt as though it was a nation about to explode on the international film scene with directors such as Gyorgy Palfi (Taxidermia), Nimrod Antal (Kontroll) and Aron Gauder (The District) all appearing on the scene within a few years of one another and wowing on both the cult and arthouse festival circuits.

Well, the economy, for one thing with Hungary hit so hard by the global economic crisis that their national film fund - the principal financier on all Hungarian films - completely shut down for several years with the entire national industry essentially put on hold for the duration. But Hungary's back now and, oh yes, still finding the balance between art, genre...

Your first look at the new 'Predator' is finally here

15 February 2016 6:03 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The next installment in the Predator franchise seems to be heating up, with screenwriter Fred Dekker promising great things from the forthcoming Shane Black-directed sequel/reboot in a Facebook post just last week. Now, the first image for the film has hit the franchise's official Facebook page: (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Here we go again, bro. Posted by Predator on Monday, February 15, 2016 Note: "Here we go again, bro" reads as an insufferable fratboy-ism on the page but is in fact a line uttered by Bill Duke's Sergeant Mac Eliot in the franchise's first installment starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Meanwhile, I suppose we can officially start referring to the project as The Predator »
