Trump’s Secretary of Defense Was Portrayed in HBO’s ‘Generation Kill’ – Watch How

4 December 2016 3:57 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James Mattis, the retired Us Marine Corps general who this week was appointed as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense, may be familiar to viewers of HBO’s “Generation Kill.”

That’s because he was portrayed in multiple episodes of the 2008 miniseries by actor Robert Burke. Based on the award-winning book by Evan Wright, the seven-part show followed the highly trained Marines of First Recon Battalion through the first 40 days of the Iraq war.

Mattis is a war veteran who has led expeditionary forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, and was once named “the most revered Marine in a generation” by Marine Corps Times.

The clip below is an excerpt from “Generation Kill” that shows General Mattis making his appearance on the Msr and sharing some colorful words with the other men.

How Hollywood keeps turning our retro cartoons into live action blockbusters

3 November 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the news that Paramount Pictures are already planning the fifth instalment of Transformers, it once again shows how those retro cartoons of the 1980s are turning into a good source of inspiration for the Hollywood movie studios.

Hollywood has had a history of turning animated TV hits into live action movies with the likes of The Flintstones, Josie and the Pussycats and even Scooby Doo attempting to give these 1960s shows a new lease of life.

But by revisiting the cartoons of the 1980s with movies such as the Inspector Gadget and Dennis the Menace films, they show how quick the entertainment industry is to revamp relatively recent pop culture for millennial audiences.

It was 2007’s Transformers movie that showed how serious Hollywood were about these 1980s cartoons. With a massive budget, plenty of special effects, and solid performances from Megan Fox and Shia Labeouf, the Transformers movies may »

[Fantastic Fest Review] Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child

26 September 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Seemingly from outer space (Australia, really) comes Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child. This lost ’80s era space opera is a fresh of breath air that comes at a time when ones doesn’t see this kind of film too often. Furthermore, it’s not of the post-apocalyptic variety, which also adds a refreshing angle. What starts as a slow build, Shane Abbess‘ ambitious sci-fi gem quickly picks up speed and never looks back.

Abbess’ feature has many strengths, and right out of the gates the visuals simply sing with a slick and refined production design. Abbess and co-writer Brian Cachia succeed at impressive world building, and, like the music (also from Cachia), it’s big. This story about a government conglomerate, EXOr, colonizing planets is kicked off when one of their secret facilities is in danger of wiping out an entire planet in 24 hours (which include colonists, and »

8 things we learned about the live-action 'Masters of the Universe' reboot

15 August 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

McG, the director of Charlie's Angels and Terminator: Salvation who is currently slated to helm the long-gestating Masters of the Universe live-action movie at Sony, just gave an interview to IGN that features quite a bit of back and forth on the upcoming "reboot" of the iconic '80s animated franchise. MotU earlier spawned a poorly-received live-action film starring Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella. Stating that he is "laser-focused" on making MotU his next movie, McG revealed quite a bit about the project's development, from casting to setting to how the film will be informed by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Below are a few highlights from the conversation, which you can read in full over at IGN. 1. Kellan Lutz has not been cast as He-Man. Though Lutz previously revealed via Twitter that he had met with McG on the project, the Legend of Hercules star is so far not attached to play the musclebound protagonist. »

Newswire: McG argues Masters Of The Universe will be good by naming other good things

15 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Director and hater of vowels McG was handed the keys to Castle Greyskull earlier this year, having been entrusted with filming a new version of Masters Of The Universe for the big screen. And while we recently learned Kellan Lutz was in talks about possibly wearing the loincloth (likely because someone saw him in that other Hercules movie and thought, “Well, I can end my search for someone to play a one-dimensional cartoon character”), as we near the end of summer, an update would be appreciated. After all, it’s only natural fans of the series might wake in the morning, step outside, take a deep breath, get real high, and say, ”Hey—what’s goin’ on, McG?”

Happily, McG has heard your cries, and is more than happy to tell you what’s up with his effort to turn a cartoon invented to sell toys (and hasn’t had »

McG Talks He-Man and Rebooting Masters of the Universe

13 August 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It sounds like we're getting a lot closer to seeing He-Man return on the big screen in the long-awaited Masters of the Universe reboot. We still have a few years to wait, according to director McG. The man behind such notable hits as Charlie's Angels and Terminator Salvation claims he's ready to make this live-action fantasy adaption of the popular toy and animated series his next movie. But there is still some work to be done.

Masters of the Universe has been sitting in development purgatory for quite some time. There seemed to be some light at the end of the tunnel when it was announced earlier this year that director McG had taken on the task of resuscitating this dormant franchise, which has only ever seen one live-action movie to date, which arrived way back in 1987 and starred Dolph Lundgren and Courtney Cox.

He-man And The Masters Of The Universe: Director McG Gives Updates On Long-Gestating Project

12 August 2016 3:50 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

There is no shortage of remakes, reboots, and re-imaginings in Hollywood. I'd hold it against them, but the simple fact is that it's a heck of a lot easier to advertise an existing property than it is to build a fanbase for one from the ground up. One of the many long-gestating projects out there in Tinseltown is He-man And The Masters Of The Universe, a film that not a lot of people have been asking for, but the studios seem to insist people want.

Editorializations aside, we finally have some news on the film, which seems to have been largely dormant ever since McG first signed on as director earlier this month (with the exception of a random tweet from actor Kellan Lutz expressing his interest in the film). Following the TV Critics Association, IGN caught up with the director and received a good number of updates regarding the picture. »
