‘The Killing Season’ Blu-ray Review

26 August 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: John Travolta, Robert De Niro, Milo Ventimiglia, Elizabeth Olin, Diana Lyubenova, Kalin Sarmenov, Stefan Shterev | Written by Evan Daugherty | Directed by Mark Steven Johnson

Emil Kovac (Travolta) is a former Scorpions soldier based in Serbia on the assignment of his career: find and capture Colonel Benjamin Ford (De Niro). Wanted for being a former Nato operative, Ford has now retired from war and lives a reclusive lifestyle in the Appalachian mountains. Determined to finish what his people started, Kovac poses as a friendly European tourist and tracks Ford to his secret hideaway. As Kovac gets all the evidence he needs, he pursues Ford in a brutal game of cat and mouse, intent on bringing him to justice.

A film starring Robert De Niro and John Travolta going straight to DVD and Blu-ray? That can’t be right surely? Well if it’s The Killing Season it can.

As Predicted Here, Resolution Agents Adam Kanter And Martin Spencer Land At Paradigm; Which Clients Will Come?

13 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As Deadline reported last Friday, Paradigm has confirmed that agents Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer have joined the agency after their abrupt exits from Resolution. Word had raced last week that this was happening, as the two agents did not want to take paycuts from their low-seven-figure salaries. The two joined Jeff Berg last year shortly after he left ICM to launch Resolution, and those agents came from CAA. At Paradigm, they should feel right at home alongside former CAA cohorts Bob Bookman, Ken Stovitz, Rand Holston and most recently Manny Nunez. Related: Resolution Agents Martin Spencer, Adam Kanter Exiting; Paradigm Next Stop? So now, the big question is which clients will join them in the move. Here are the ones I’m hearing are most likely to make the jump to Paradigm: Stuart Beattie, Stalingrad helmer Fedor Bondarchuk, Joe Johnston, Mark Steven Johnson, Malcolm Lee, Rob Minkoff, Evan and Shea Mirzai, »

Will Preacher be the ultimate comic book TV adaptation?

7 February 2014 9:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The much revered road trip western is violent, often hilarious – and has been greenlit for the screen by cable channel AMC

Preacher is a cherished 1990s comic book story set in motion by an affair between a demon and an angel. So perhaps it is appropriate that attempts to transfer it to the screen have been stuck in development hell for years. Writer/director Kevin Smith was initially rumoured to be turning Preacher into a movie, although he has since downplayed his involvement. Then HBO were going to adapt it as a TV series with Mark Steven Johnson, the director of duff superhero blockbuster Daredevil. Then it was going to be a Sam Mendes film, before he decided to make Skyfall instead. No one, it seemed, had the gumption to do Preacher justice.

Now AMC, the former classic movie channel turned cable drama powerhouse, has given the green light to the project, »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Team with AMC and Breaking Bad’s Sam Catlin for Preacher

7 February 2014 1:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There had been rumours, but now it’s official: This Is The End’s Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are adapting Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s critically acclaimed DC/Vertigo comic book series, Preacher. After a number of failed attempts to bring it to life on the big and small screen, AMC, the Us cable network responsible for Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, have given it the green light.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write and serve as executive producers, while Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) has been brought on board to serve as showrunner. Neil Moritz, Vivian Cannon, Ori Marmur, Ken Levin, and Jason Netter are all set to executive produce as well.

For those of you unfamiliar with Preacher, it revolves around Rev. Jesse Custer, a bad-ass Texas preacher who, after losing his faith, learns that God has left Heaven and forsaken his duties. Jesse becomes »

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Breaking Bad Writer Sam Catlin to Adapt Garth Ennis’ Comic Preacher into a TV Series for AMC

6 February 2014 12:40 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic Preacher has been on a long and winding road to reach either a big or a small screen.  The 75-issue series begins with small town preacher Jesse Custer receiving the power to speak with the "Word of God" and command others to do his bidding, but the story then expands far beyond to include an Irish vampire, sadistic cousins who will fuck anything with a hole, a relentless and perverted operative, the "Saint of Killers" who can kill anything, and a character who, in a failed suicide attempt, blows his face off and takes on the name, "Arseface."  When the project was being developed by Mark Steven Johnson (Daredevil) in 2006 for HBO, the network passed because it was deemed "too dark and too violent and too controversial."  So now, in 2014, it will go to AMC with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) at the helm. »

Batman Vs. Superman: Ben Affleck Talks Batman Backlash

27 January 2014 3:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the vitriol has subsided considerably, there was a massive outpouring of negativity from fanboys around the world when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in Batman Vs. Superman. The actor, of course, is no stranger to the superhero genre, portraying blind vigilante Matt Murdock in Marvel's 2003 adventure Daredevil. During a recent interview with Playboy, the actor revealed that Daredevil was the only movie he ever regretted, which may have been part of the motivation in taking on the Batman role. The actor also spoke about the immense negative reactions from the fans and how he handled that, how Zack Snyder's vision convinced him to take the role, how this new version of Batman doesn't "compete" with Christian Bale's version, and how he has grown as an actor and an artist over the past 10 years.

The actor was told that George Clooney keeps a photo of himself as »
