Supernatural Flick The Empty Man Recruits James Badge Dale

7 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

13 Hours and Iron Man 3 star James Badge Dale has inked a deal to headline The Empty Man, a supernatural thriller based on a Boom! Studios comic.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that Dale joins the Fox thriller in the title role, one described as an “ex-cop plagued by the violent death of his wife and son who battles to find a missing girl but soon discovers a sinister presence around him.”

Lifting inspiration from Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey’s comic of the same name, THR cautions that The Empty Man will diverge from its source material in some respects, but stopped short of disclosing what those creative departures will entail. What we do know is Ross Richie and Stephen Christy are attached to produce on behalf of Boom! Studios, and production is expected to get underway in South Africa before the year’s end. »

DVD Review – 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2016)

31 May 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, 2016.

Directed by Michael Bay.

Starring John Krasinski, Max Martini, James Badge Dale, Freddie Stroma and Toby Stephens.

Synopsis:

Over the course of one hot, desperate night, a team of covert American military defence contractors must protect a secret CIA compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi from a wave of jihadists…

Michael Bay is a truly pernicious, right-wing filmmaker. He’s Clint Eastwood without either the old school charm or talent. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt, even though you likely suspected it for quite some time. It’s one thing for Bay to make loud, noisy trash such as the Transformers franchise, or even morally repulsive character drama like Pain & Gain, but when he makes a picture like 13 Hours and fumbles his way into modern geopolitics, you just want to take away his license to »

Q&A: Justin Kucsulain on Playing Ethan on The Walking Dead Season 6, Filming a Fight Scene with Andrew Lincoln

27 May 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

One of the more intense moments from The Walking Dead comic book series is Rick’s hand-to-hand fight with Hilltop resident Ethan, and for our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Justin Kucsulain, the actor who played Ethan on Season 6 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Kucsulain discussed filming the gritty fight scene with Andrew Lincoln, being on the set of the Hilltop, his role in Season 2 of Bloodline, and more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Justin. When were you first inspired to become an actor and what drove you to pursue acting as a career?

Justin Kucsulain: I was first inspired to become an actor on the set of the 2013 Marvel summer blockbuster, Iron Man 3, working as a featured extra. At the time I was just a “big, fit dude” with zero craft, working strictly off of natural ability. »

24 May 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This year, the filmmaker brought us the harrowing true story of the soldiers who fought against terrorists in the Benghazi raid in 13 Hours. This action-thriller debuts on Digital HD today, ahead of its Blu-ray and DVD release on June 7, and we have an exclusive preview that offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the production.

This two-minute preview offers plenty of insight regarding the different types of cameras that were used on 13 Hours, from Oscar-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha, Edge of Tomorrow. The cinematographer reveals that they used the Sony A7S cameras to "simulate night vision, »
