The first trailer for the Hungarian film has dropped and it looks pretty slick. Let's bookmark this one, folks.
Between 1993 and 1999, one man robbed 29 financial institutions in Budapest. Banks, post offices and even travel agencies fell victim to his crime spree. The police had no leads and no hope of findi [Continued ...]

Writer/director Shane Black wrote the script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker. Black says the film is not a full reboot of the Predator series and remains in the continuity of the first two movies. He also said the film will be rated R.
The cast includes Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) and Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica).
The original Predator was directed by John McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a United States special forces team that comes under attack from an alien trophy hunter.
First found on the official Predator mobile app, the motion poster shows thunder cracking across the sky as bright blue and white bolts of lightning in the shape of the titular thermal-tracking Predator flash to illuminate a city below. The clip is 12-seconds long and definitely adds some anxiety into
But while the sequel is a box office dud, it’s unquestionably a huge step in the right direction for studio filmmaking.

In a blockbuster age dominated by comic book fare and endless cash-grabbing sequels, it has become increasingly rare to see a big-budget studio film
But you don’t get the feeling, at least not entirely, that he is reminding you of his triumph at the Oscars in order to bask again in residual traces of that glory. It’s more that his portrayal of the Jewish composer Władysław Szpilman in Roman Polanski’s epic film of the Holocaust exacted an emotional toll that, even with a decade and a half under the bright spotlight of Hollywood, he has found difficult to shrug off. “I had to sacrifice large parts of my personal life,” he said. In preparing for the film,
Hungary is the second-biggest production hub in Europe after the U.K., with international producers attracted by the 25% tax rebate, the skilled crews and the modern production facilities. “We were nowhere five years ago,” Vajna says. Six to eight major international movies shoot in Hungary every year, as well as 10 or so films with an above-average budget. Recent productions have included 20th Century Fox spy thriller “Red Sparrow,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, and Lionsgate’s retelling
The Hollywood Reporter are the ones breaking the news, and though they don’t have specifics on Jane’s role, they do note that the project is quickly putting together the rest of its cast before it heads into production next month in Vancouver. As such, we can expect to hear more in the very near future.
Though he’ll likely fall into one of the supporting roles, Jane’s involvement in The Predator is great news. He hasn’t done a studio film in a while and given that he’s one of Hollywood’s most underrated talents,
And so, our attention is now drawn to The Predator, Shane Black’s 2018 sequel that is out to recapture the spirit of the 1987 original, one in which Black himself starred in as Rick Hawkins. Now, The Nice Guys director has been elected at the helm of Fox’s overhaul, and is currently fine-tuning a script he penned with the help of Fred Dekker. Casting is already underway, and though it appeared The Predator had landed its first major star in Benicio Del Toro, we learned that the Guardians of the Galaxy actor has now been replaced by Boyd Holbrook (Logan

Ever since Wayward Pines was announced as an M. Night Shyamalan project, the threat of the twist ending is one that’s hung over the entire series. For better or worse, Shyamalan’s name is associated with stories that try to come out of left field in the apex of the third act and surprise you with the idea that nothing you’ve witnessed is what it seems, ends that enjoy their trickiness so much it keeps them blind to the fact that they don’t bear up under scrutiny. And given the early ads for the show, which were heavy on that symbolism—as well as too heavy on imagery and quotes that invited unflattering Twin Peaks comparisons—it was hard to

Ever since the true nature of Wayward Pines was revealed back in “The Truth,” the idea of sacrifice has hung over all day-to-day routines of the show. In order to save humanity, Pilcher, Pam, Megan, and every member of the support team had to give up their lives as they knew them. In doing so, they gave themselves the authority to force the sacrifices of countless other individuals, those they deemed necessary to ensure humanity’s future. Upon awakening, those individuals are forced into a conveyor belt of personal sacrifices, giving up their agency, their liberty, their right to know what’s going on. And should they chafe too heavily at those losses, the town literally sacrifices them to make a point.
The question of sacrifice and its
