Following hot on the heels of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s geriatric return to action in The Last Stand, is fellow 80s icon Sylvester Stallone, hoping that he isn’t so expendable to the world of film after all. Stallone plays a tough as nails hitman, but refuses to shoot hookers so we know he isn’t all bad. After his partner is killed, he soon finds himself teaming up with Sung Kang’s cop. A hitman and a cop working together? That’s a recipe for disaster within itself, but the fact that one is Asian and the other is old also makes way for some fiery banter between the leads. The dialogue is a quick way to establish the characters and chart their friendship, but it’s also worn and expected. »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.
Blacklist – Fall
The Blacklist — (Photo by: NBC)
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”
Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, »

Update 2:15 p.m. Et: NBC has also ordered a spinoff of its freshman series "Chicago Fire" called "Chicago P.D." The new show will focus on uniformed officers and detectives in a Chicago precinct and star Jon Seda and Jason Beghe, both of whom have appeared in several "Chicago Fire" episodes this season.
NBC is not done picking up new series for next season. The network has added another drama and comedy to the six new shows it had previously ordered.
The latest drama pickup is "Ironside," a remake of the 1960s-70s series about a detective who is paralyzed on the job but continues working. It stars Blair Underwood ("The Event," "In Treatment") in the title role. (Raymond Burr starred in the original.)
The remake also stars Brent Sexton ("The Killing"), Spencer Grammer ("Greek"), Kenneth Choi ("Sons of Anarchy") and Neal Bledsoe ("Smash"). Michael Caleo ("Rescue Me," "The Sopranos") is the creator. »
NBC has picked up "Chicago Pd," a spinoff of "Chicago Fire," the network announced Friday.
Rumors first started flying that a "Chicago Fire" spinoff was in the works at NBC in March.
Check out NBC's description of the show below:
"District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups. There are the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head to head with the city’s street crimes. And there’s the Intelligence Unit, the team that combats the city’s major offenses – organized crime, drug traffi cking, high profile murders and beyond.
Leading the Intelligence team is Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), a man not against skirting the law in the pursuit of justice. Demanding and tough, only those who can take the heat survive under Voight’s command. Take Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) – despite his troubled history with his boss, Dawson »

As anticipated, NBC is keeping the Chicago Fire burning with Chicago Pd, a police-oriented spin-off of its successful freshman drama.

Chicago Fire has only been on the air for one season.
And it isn’t even a hit, exactly.
But NBC is moving forward with the spinoff anyway!
The network has just picked up Chicago P.D., a companion series to the soapy firefighter drama that proved to be a surprisingly sturdy 10 p.m. performer this season for the network. Fire has averaged 7.8 million viewers and a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating including seven days of DVR on Wednesday nights this season. And clearly executive producer Dick Wolf (the Law & Order franchise) knows a thing or two about how to build one show into a franchise. »

ITV drama is no longer the russian roulette of quality it once was; it may even be becoming a safe bet. This three-part drama, which follows the career of police officer Denise Woods over three decades, is intelligent, agreeably subdued and boasts a great lead performance from Hayley Atwell. The first episode, set in 1985, has Woods as a young, idealistic Wpc who becomes obsessed with a murder-rape case. Some of the plotting is a tad generic, but the promise of a larger story unfolding makes for a compelling drama. Martin Skegg

Burn, baby burn! We’re receiving more and more reports as the police-centric proposed Chicago Fire spin-off gains momentum. Showmakers are adding fuel to the fire with some hot young faces. This is a project to keep your eye on, folks. Today you can say hello to Kelly Blatz and Melissa Sagemiller. The two new actors join Scott Eastwood and Tania Raymonde, who we reported just yesterday were circling the new drama.
It’s difficult to top the Law & Order franchise when it comes to the police procedural, but there’s always room for another cop drama and anyway, the anticipated Chicago Fire spin-off has two advantages in that department. For one thing, the man himself, Mr. Dick Wolf will be ushering the new show along in the right direction. For another, the Law & Order empire has never delved too deeply into the police officers personal lives, which might be »

Exclusive: Kelly Blatz has joined NBC‘s proposed Chicago Fire spinoff, from Wolf Films and Universal TV. Blatz will guest star in the Chicago Fire freshman season finale, which serves as planted spinoff for a potential new drama series, a cop drama about the Chicago Police Department. Blatz will play the young but seasoned Officer Elam, a role that would be one of the leads of the potential spinoff. He joins recently cast Melissa Sagemiller, Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood. The Chicago Fire spinoff project is being developed by Chicago Fire creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt and executive producers Matt Olmstead and Wolf. It is still unclear which Chicago Fire actors would transfer to the spinoff series, with Jon Seda, who has been recurring as Chicago Pd Detective Antonio Dawson, considered a strong possibility. Blatz, repped by ICM Partners, Luber Roklin and Alan Hergott, recently starred in »

Exclusive: Melissa Sagemiller has been tapped for what is considered the leading new addition in the proposed Chicago Fire spinoff, from Wolf Films and Universal TV. Sagemiller will appear in the Chicago Fire freshman season finale, which serves as planted spinoff for a potential new drama series, a cop drama about the Chicago Police Department. Sagemiller will play Detective Willhite, a member of the Chicago Pd Intelligence Unit. The gig reunites Sagemiller with Wolf Films and NBC after doing a major arc on Law & Order: Svu as Ada Gillian Hardwicke two years ago. Coincidentally, Svu too is a spinoff, spawned from the long-running Law & Order series. In the Chicago Fire spinoff project, which is being developed by Chicago Fire creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt and executive producers Matt Olmstead and Wolf, Sagemiller joins recently cast Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood. It is still unclear which Chicago Fire »

NBC‘s Chicago Fire planted spinoff has cast Tania Raymonde (Lost). As we first reported, the Dick Wolf-produced firefighter drama is eying a spinoff series, a cop drama about the Chicago Police Department, which is being developed by Chicago Fire creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, executive producer Matt Olmstead and executive producer Wolf, whose company Wolf Films produces Chicago Fire with Universal TV. The potential spinoff is being introduced in the Chicago Fire‘s first season finale directed by Joe Chappelle. As reported by TVLine, Raymonde has been cast in the finale as a new character, a police officer named Nicole. It is still unclear which Chicago Fire actors may transfer to the spinoff series. Chicago Fire‘s recurring cast includes Chicago Pd Detective Antonio Dawson, played by Jon Seda, who is considered a likely potential co-star for the new project. Game Of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer »

"Chicago Fire" has been doing well for NBC, so it's no wonder that the network wants to keep that magic going. The procedural was already picked up for a full season, and now it might be getting a spinoff as well.
Deadline is reporting that the proposed "Chicago Fire" spinoff would be about the city's police department. "Chicago Fire" creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt are reportedly developing the cop drama with executive producers Matt Olmstead and Dick Wolf.
If this news tickles your fancy, then you're in luck, because it allegedly won't be long until the spinoff concept is introduced. The idea will reportedly be planted in "Chicago Fire's" Season 1 finale episode, which is slated to air on May 15. It's still being determined which of the show's actors could move over to the spinoff. For example, Jon Seda plays recurring Chicago Pd Detective Antonio Dawson in "Chicago Fire. »
Exclusive: NBC‘s Chicago Fire has been on a roll, steadily building from a slow start to hit several series highs in midseason, get its freshman order upped from 22 to 24 episodes and cement a second-season renewal. Now I hear the Dick Wolf-produced firefighter drama may also get a spinoff series. Details are sketchy, but I hear the proposed spinoff is also a Chicago-set procedural about another Public Safety division, the police. I hear the cop drama about the Chicago Police Department is being developed by Chicago Fire creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, executive producer Matt Olmstead and executive producer Wolf, whose company Wolf Films produces Chicago Fire with Universal TV. Word is that the new show would start off as a planted spinoff with Chicago Fire‘s first season finale directed by Joe Chappelle. It is still being sorted out which Chicago Fire actors may transfer to the spinoff series. »

Bullet To the Head – they already call it this weekend’s loser (and here’s why) but we still think that Walter Hill‘s latest action thriller deserves your attention so we’re here to add two more posters from the whole thing. Go ahead and check out Stallone as a hitman who teams with a Washington DC detective to solve two murders!
So, as you already know, Hill’s movie is based on a graphic novel of the same name which tells the story of a New Orleans hitman played by Sylvester Stallone and a DC cop, played by Sung Kang, who form an alliance to bring down the killers of their respective partners.
Released on February 1st, 2013 Bullet To The Head wasn’t exactly well received. Unfortunately »

New 'Bullet To The Head' movie delivered great action,drama & more. Warner Bros. Pictures released their new action/thriller flick "Bullet To The Head" into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was great,serving up major hardcore action along with a good plot. Sylvester Stallone can still bring the major pain in these action films. The movie stars: Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang, Sarah Shahi, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christian Slater, Jon Seda, Weronika Rosati, and Jason Momoa. In the new flick, hitman Jimmy Bobo (Sylvester Stallone) and his partner Louis Blanchard (Jon Seda) take out a corrupt policeman, named Hank Greely, as part of a job. However, Jimmy and Louis get double-crossed by their employer when they send in a man named Keegan (Jason Momoa) to try and kill them. He successfully kills Louis,but Jimmy put up a mean fight and got away. From there, »
Sylvester Stallone Bullet to the Head box office: Worst Stallone opening weekend in more than three decades? The Sylvester Stallone action movie Bullet to the Head is about to become the worst-performing Stallone star vehicle opening in wide release in North America since — at least — the box-office bomb Victory back in 1981, or possibly going all the way back to Paradise Alley in 1978. Opening-weekend figures for Victory, which cumed at $10.85m (approximately $30.5m today), are unavailable at Box Office Mojo, but Bullet in the Head is expected to gross an abysmal $5m by Sunday evening, after collecting $1.73m at 2,404 locations. (Photo: Sylvester Stallone Bullet to the Head.) Once inflation is factored in, in the last three decades no other Sylvester Stallone movie in wide release has opened as disastrously as Bullet to the Head; not even the John Landis’ crime comedy Oscar (1991), the Stallone-written action drama Over the Top (1987), the Stallone- »

The Movie: Bullet to the Head (2013) Studio: Warner Bros. Director: Walter Hill Starring: Sylvester Stallone as James Bonomo, Sung Kang as Taylor Kwon, Sarah Shahi as Lisa Bonomo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Robert Nkomo Morel, Jason Momoa as Keegan, Christian Slater as Marcus Baptiste and Jon Seda as Louis Blanchard Screenwriters: Alessandro Camon based on the graphic novel "Du plomb dans la tete" RottenTomatoes: 49% MetaCritic: 47/100 Snippet from My Review: (read my full review here) Bullet to the Head tries so hard to play like a throwback '80s actioner, while not appearing to look like its trying, it's laughable. I've also been worn so thin on films with aging characters baffled by technology that the egregious lengths Walter Hill's new film goes to tell me how much information can be found on a smartphone that I wanted to pull mine out of my pocket and stomp it into a thousand pieces. »
