‘Dead Rising: Endgame’ Review

11 November 2016 4:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse Metcalfe, Keegan Connor Tracy, Jessica Harmon, Dennis Haysbert, Marie Avgeropoulos, Teach Grant, Dakota Guppy, Stephen Lobo, Curtis Lum, Lee Majdoub, Luvia Petersen, Sandy Robson, Heather Roop, Patrick Sabongui | Written by Michael Ferris, Tim Carter | Directed by Pat Williams

There are a plethora of really shitty movies based on video games being released each year. None of them holding a candle to the source material it is based on. However each and every time I get suckered in because I want to be impressed by these attempts, as a movie fan and a gamer I need to be impressed. And let’s be honest, the premise of the Dead Rising games is just about absurd enough to work as a movie and with this being the second outing well have they learnt.

Based on the worldwide smash-hit video game series, Dead Rising: Endgame is the sequel to last years »

12 October 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Dead Rising fans can look forward to two stocking stuffers this holiday season. In addition to Capcom unleashing the wisecracking wrath of Frank West in the new video game Dead Rising 4 on December 6th, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will also release Dead Rising: Endgame on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital on that same day.

Press Release (via Home Theater Forum): Culver City, Calif. (Oct. 10, 2016) – Prepare for a nonstop assault of zombie-slaying action when Dead Rising: Endgame debuts on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital December 6 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The action-packed sequel to Dead Rising: Watchtower chronicles the return of Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas,” “Desperate Housewives”) as Chase Carter, an investigative journalist haunted by his past and now hunted by the military. After narrowly escaping a zombie quarantine, Chase—along with a group of dubious allies—slices, hacks and bludgeons his way through the zombie hordes that plague every corner of the abandoned city. »

Dead Rising: Endgame Review

10 July 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I don’t understand Crackle’s Dead Rising franchise. Capcom built this zany, wild video game universe that’d be perfect for a hybrid experience somewhere between The Warriors and 28 Days Later, yet these movies are generically neutered. References to original content are just lazy winks, while the whole “psychopaths” arc is completely abandoned in favor of a boring Zombrex conspiracy. I was hoping that Dead Rising: Endgame would atone for Watchtower‘s forgettable adaptation, but, unfortunately, new director Pat Williams falls victim to the same dull tricks from Zach Lipovsky’s first attempt.

Jesse Metcalfe once again stars as investigative journalist Chase Carter, who must journey into the heart of East Mission to stop General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert) from killing every Zombrex-using survivor. Since the first film, technology has been developed that releases Zombrex doses through an implanted chip, but Lyons wants to overload the system and use the »

Due to make its bow via the streaming service on June 20, the horror actioner largely takes place in East Mission City, an area irrefutably crippled by the zombie outbreak.

Taking a stand against that scorched earth tactic are your new favorite band of zombie hunters, with today’s exclusive batch of posters spotlighting Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe), General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert), Jordan (Keegan Connor Tracy) and wacky scientist Rand (Billy Zane). Following up on the largely successful Watchtower, it is Pat Williams »

Crackle’s Undead Army Marches On With Zombie Sequel Dead Rising: Endgame

19 February 2016 7:42 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ducking out of a theatrical run in the vein of its predecessor, Sony’s Crackle and Legendary are partnering to release zombie-infested sequel Dead Rising: Endgame across streaming and video-on-demand services later in 2016, and it’s understood production is now officially underway on the film’s Vancouver set.

Continuing on the undead adventure, Jesse Metcalfe (John Tucker Must Die) reprises his Watchtower role as Chase Carter, now tasked with unravelling new mysteries that spawn a government conspiracy. In attempting to manufacture a cure, the plot description hints that the afflicted residents of East Mission City were instead used as the test subjects for Billy Zane’s “handsome, cruel” scientist, Rand.

Behind the lens, director Zach Lipovsky won’t return for Endgame and is replaced by Pat Williams (Cotinuum). That said, Crackle’s follow-up kept hold of its writing duo from the original, ensuring that both Tim Carter and Michael Ferris »

xXx 3: Tony Jaa and Jet Li join Vin Diesel in cast

3 January 2016 10:14 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Xander Cage edges closer to a return, as the cast for xXx 3 starts to come together...

It's looking like the long-mooted xXx 3 might finally be getting moving. Whilst Vin Diesel's immediate priority is to shoot Fast & Furious 8 ahead of its release next year, he's expected to film the third Xander Cage movie before 2016 is out (with Riddick 4 next after that). What's more, we've learned of some casting for the movie, that suggests it may well be full steam ahead for the xXx sequel.

Diesel will be reprising the role of Xander Cage, and he's set to be joined in the movie by Jet Li, Tony Jaa and Deepika Padukone. Their exact roles have not yet been revealed.

xXx 3 is set to be directed by D J Caruso, with Michael Ferris and John Brancato on scripting duties. More on the movie has we hear it. »
