Black Dynamite Review - Featuring Michael Jai White

26 September 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Now that this modern day classic is available to stream on Netflix, perhaps it is a good time for us to revisit this movie, to ascertain if it is still worthy of a watch, or perhaps even a re-watch as the case may be. Starring Michael Jai White of Spawn fame, let’s take a look at what made this move essential viewing the first time around, and what makes it worthy of viewing all over again. Blaxploitation at its Best Black Dynamite pays homage to all things 1970s, and one could be forgiven for believing that they are watching a movie filmed in that era at times. Michael Jai White is the main character in the story, and he’s out for revenge when “The Man” murders his brother. Sporting a massive afro/moustache combo, true of the 1970s era, White is fantastic in his role as Black Dynamite, »

Spawn Reboot Confirmed by Creator Todd McFarlane: Hear About His Dark New Vision

19 September 2016 7:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 1997, New Line Cinema released the superhero film “Spawn,” based on the comic book character created by Todd McFarlane, about murdered special forces agent Al Simmons (played by Michael Jai White) who is resurrected as Spawn, the demonic leader of Hell’s army. Though the film was a modest box office success, it received mostly negative reviews from critics. Now, McFarlane confirms that a new “Spawn” film is currently in the works, and it’s not gonna be a soft-pedaled version of the story either.

In an interview with Tiffany Smith on AMC’s “Geeking Out,” Kevin Smith and Greg Gunberg’s late-night pop culture talk show, McFarlane said that there will be a second film and that it’s “not gonna be a continuation, not gonna be a sequel…scrub the first movie, it was 20 years ago. It’s gonna be dark, R-rated, scary, bad-ass sort of script that »

Spawn Reboot Will Be Dark, R-Rated and Scary Says Creator Todd McFarlane

17 September 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Were you disappointed by the Spawn movie that hit theaters way back in 1997? So was creator Todd McFarlane. And he plans to rectify that with a new remake/reboot that will be nothing like the original movie. He's finished his screenplay, and now, appearing on the latest episode of AMC's Geeking Out, he has revealed exactly what this new big screen iteration of his iconic comic book and action figure line will be.

Earlier this year, McFarlane confirmed that he'd completed the script for a new Spawn movie, calling it 'massive'. Since that update, though, he's remained fairly quiet on the matter. At the time, he explained that he still needed to whittle the huge screenplay down by at least 45 pages, bringing it in at a still somewhat long 140 pages. If one page equals one minute of screen time, that still means this remake will clock in at over two hours. »

16 September 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Spawn lovers have been clamoring for more ever since the movie first came out in 1997. Now creator Todd McFarlane is giving fans some insight into what the can expect the next time Al Simmons is on screen. In an interview with the AMC series Geeking Out, MacFarlane explains that the next version isn’t going to be your parents' Spawn. "It’s going to be a dark, R-rated, scary, badass sort of script,” MacFarlane said. “It’s not a nice, polite PG-13 with ray guns…The world's going to be real, except for one thing that's going to move.” He goes on to say that this isn’t going to be a overdue Part 2. “It’s not going to be a continuation. It’s not going to be a sequel. It’s not going to be any of that.  Scrub the first movie. It was 20 years ago,” MacFarlane notes. Discussion »

Spawn's Michael Jai White Is Interested In Playing Black Manta In Aquaman

11 August 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The rumor of Black Manta being the main villain for James Wan's Aquaman has made its rounds on the Internet. Whether or not the rumor is true is yet to be seen. However, true or not, it hasn't stopped fans from speculating on who should take on the role of Aquaman's archenemy. Now, actor Michael Jai White (Spawn, Arrow) has heard the rumor and has expressed some interest in the role. Earlier today, White took to his Twitter account to respond to a fan that suggested that the actor should take on the role of Black Manta. White replied by saying, "I accept your nomination!” It seems like White is more than ready to wear the iconic Black Manta helmet, but he's going to have some competition now that actor Michael K. Williams (The Night Of) has also thrown his hat into the Black Manta ring. I accept your nomination! »

Editorial: Mortal Kombat needs Kevin Tancharoen

22 July 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »


What happened to Mortal Kombat? The video games seem to have made quite a comeback but for a moment there were whispers of something very interesting; a worthy film adaptation. Don’t get me wrong, the first movie holds a special place in my heart. When it came out video game movies were still being compared to Super Mario Bros. (yes, the one with Dennis Hopper holding his paycheck the entire film) and they tried their best. But, I haven’t watched that film in years because I know all it will do is remind me how easy I was to please as a child. I choose to remember it fondly, they put Goro and Sub-Zero onscreen.

Some of you may remember the sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. My goodness, where does one begin to pick that movie apart? There’s nothing I could write about that film that hasn »

Fight! Could this be the cast of the Mortal Kombat reboot?

30 June 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This is impressive… if true. The website Frag Hero is reporting that they have the confirmed cast list for the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot which is currently in development. To me this sounds a little bit of a wish-list, but it could be true.

The ‘confirmed’ cast is: Vin Diesel as Shao Khan, Megan Fox as Kitana, Robin Shou as Shang Tsung, Daniel Wu as Liu Kang, Manu Bennet as Kano, Scott Adkins as Johnny Cage, Jason Momoa as Nightwolf, Tony Jaa as Scorpion, Ronda Rousey as Sonya Blade, Michael Jai White as Jax, Iko Uwais as Sub Zero and Liam Neeson as Raiden.

Mortal Kombat is a video game franchise originally developed by Midway Games’ Chicago studio in 1992. The new versionis said to be aimed towards the 12A certificate in the UK, which would be as equally as impressive as that dream cast list if they can pull that »
