‘Sons of Anarchy’: Any Excuse To Rage

8 hours ago

[This is a review of Sons of Anarchy season 7, episode 4. There will be Spoilers] 

-

You can always count on Sons of Anarchy to express the seriousness of a situation through the inherent expendability of its supporting cast.

In that sense, the massacre that takes place (mercifully) off screen in the closing moments of the episode is meant to carry as much propulsive energy as the gruesome, graphic, and unexpected murder of a Deputy Sheriff Cane (Lamonica Garrett) when he and his partner stumble upon Jax and the Mc delivering a package of drugs to a bunch of Aryans with itchy trigger fingers.

The Aryans manage to shoot ...

‘John Wick’ Final Trailer: The Badass is Back

9 hours ago

We’re now less than a month out from the theatrical release of Keanu Reeves’ new R-rated action flick John Wick. Distributor Lionsgate released the final trailer for the film earlier today, and it promises one hell of a wild ride. Check it out in full above.

For those who haven’t been following the project’s development, John Wick stars Reeves as the titular character, a retired badass hitman who is quite happy just living life in seclusion with his reliable car and his lovable dog. That is until John rubs the hothead son of a crime boss the wrong way during a chance encounter. Goons are then sent to beat up Wick, steal his car, and murder his beloved pet – who was a gift from his late wife.

Of course, the underworld kingpin’s misguided offspring probably thought that would be the ...

‘Community’ Season 6 Won’t Include Yvette Nicole Brown

10 hours ago

It’s become a tradition with Community; the happy is paired with the sad. Last season, fans were gifted with the shocking return of series creator and seasons 1-3 showrunner Dan Harmon before they found out that Donald Glover would leave the show after a handful of episodes. Without Glover’s Troy Barnes, the show soldiered on with the help of new and returning cast additions like Jonathan Banks and John Oliver, but the loss was felt on the screen with the absence of the comedic force that was the Troy and Abed team-up.

This season, which might qualify as an actual miracle, exists because Yahoo Screen came in at the 11th hour to save the cancelled sitcom and check off half ...

‘Zombieland 2′ Back in Development; New Writer Attached

11 hours ago

In the five years since Zombieland hit theaters, zombies haven’t gone out of style one bit. AMC’s The Walking Dead still has record-breaking ratings, will soon be joined by a companion series, and already has another zombie-infested series on Syfy  - Z Nation –  for competition. In theaters, World War Z was successful enough to earn a sequel and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has finally moved out of development hell.

Zombieland, too, was back briefly when Amazon produced a pilot episode based off the movie for one of its potential original series. The Zombieland series would’ve continued the adventures of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock, but its pilot didn’t win itself enough fans and Amazon chose ...

8 Movies We’re Looking Forward To: October 2014

11 hours ago

After a decidedly quiet September things are really starting to get exciting as we move to October. This is the month when the genre fare starts mingling with the rare blockbuster, and the awards contenders start popping up every now and again. Last year, for example, October included the release of Best Picture nominee and Screen Rant favorite Gravity, as well as actual Bp winner 12 Years a Slave.

Granted, we don’t think October 2014 will be quite as fruitful, but it still has plenty of intriguing releases all the same. Almost every demographic has at least one picture to look forward to this month, and yes there are even a few horror flicks on the schedule. It’s ...

‘Rush Hour’ TV Series in the Works; ‘Scrubs’ Creator Set as Showrunner

12 hours ago

In what is quickly becoming a weekly tradition around here, it’s now time to announce that yet another popular film franchise is heading to the small screen. Up on the revival chopping block this week is the Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker buddy cop trilogy, Rush Hour.

The first film opened in 1998 to good reviews, and made nearly $250 million worldwide on a budget of only $33 million. That kind of success obviously led to a sequel in relatively short order, which earned about $100 million more than the original, despite less flattering critical sentiment. Six years later, Rush Hour 3 was released, and the law of diminishing returns finally caught up with the series. Critics ravaged ...

‘Fantastic Four’: Miles Teller On Changes Between Reboot & Original Movie

13 hours ago

In the midst of big 2015 films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Terminator Genysis, Jurassic Park 4 and Star Wars Episode VII, we’re also getting a reboot of the Fantastic Four movie franchise – though you won’t likely find it on most people’s “Most Anticipated” list for the year.

First of all: there’s been criminally little marketing or promotional material for the movie – a big missed opportunity, as far as we’re concerned. Secondly, the casting has been way off target from what most fans expected; actors Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment), Kate Mara (House of Cards), Miles B. Jordan (Chronicle) and Jamie Bell (Jumper) are playing the principal four roles of Reed Richards, ...

‘Big’ TV Comedy Series Picked Up by Fox

14 hours ago

When there are no more original ideas in Hollywood, the spirits of 80s movies will rise up from the dead and take over our screens. Which is to say, lately a lot of the attention has been turned on classic 80s action sci-fi movies, with Total Recall, RoboCop and Escape From New York all getting the remake treatment – but really, no piece of nostalgia is truly safe, nowadays.

A few years ago Twentieth Century Fox was reportedly looking to 1988 Tom Hanks comedy Big for inspiration, buying a pitch for a movie called Premature Maturation that was described as Big meets The Hangover. The main difference was that instead of one kid getting transformed into an ...

‘Agent Carter’: Marvel Confirms Dominic Cooper’s Return as Howard Stark

16 hours ago

Marvel’s Agent Carter might be the first title produced by the studio to have a female lead, but the supporting cast is very testosterone-heavy. Enver GjokajChad Michael Murray, Shea Whigham and James D’Arcy have all joined Agent Carter in recent weeks, and Captain America: The First Avenger star Dominic Cooper has long been expected to reprise his role as Howard Stark, the father of Iron Man.

This makes sense in light of the official synopsis for Agent Carter, which describes protagonist Peggy Carter (played once again by Hayley Atwell) finding herself “marginalized” after America’s fighting men return from abroad following the end of World War II. Refusing to stay stuck in her administrative duties, Carter takes on ...

‘Tetris’ Movie In Development

17 hours ago

In recent years, Hollywood has sought inspiration from some unlikely sources. In addition to the current trend of bringing scores of comic book characters to the big screen, toys, board games and theme park rides have all been adapted into feature length films. The success level of such films has ranged from disappointing releases (Battleship) to critical and box office hits (The Lego Movie), with this fall’s Ouija as the next film based on such alternative source material.

However, one type of film that hasn’t exactly lit up the box office lately is video game movies. Need for Speed performed well worldwide earlier this year but brought in only $43 million domestically. With the exception of Resident Evil (which could be ending soon), few video games have led ...

‘Sleepy Hollow’ Features a Battle Royale of Monsters

18 hours ago

[This is a review of Sleepy Hollow season 2, episode 2. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Sleepy Hollow continues to push the limits of its fantastical sophistication in this week’s episode, entitled ‘The Kindred’. With Katrina trapped in the clutches of the Headless Horsemen, Abbie and Ichabod find a new ally in the most unlikely of places.

Giving a face and a voice to the Horseman of Death adds a sense of realism to the show where none should exist. Neil Jackson (Person of Interest) brings a unique humanism to a creature easily dismissed as a puppet for Moloch. Do you think he’s really fooled by Katrina’s ploy to gain more information about the coming apocalypse?

Captain Irving made his ...

‘Taken 3′ Trailer: Liam Neeson is The Fugitive

19 hours ago

Taken 3 (or, “Liam Neeson With a Gun Pt. 7″) continues to cash-in on the unlikely success of Liam Neeson as an action movie badass with a third installment that will – like The Hangover 3 before it – provide a welcome change of formula from the original film and its carbon-copy sequel.

This time around, we know that Bryan Mills (Neeson) will be on the run  after being framed for the murder of his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen). That frame job also puts him in the crosshairs of the crooks who did the dirty deed – crooks who seemingly want to dismantle Mills’ life piece by piece – person by person. Luckily, Bryan Mills has a particular set of skills to help him get out of trouble.

‘Crouching Tiger 2′ Images; Cinemark & Regal Pass on IMAX Screenings [Updated]

19 hours ago

[Update: AMC is also refusing to screen Crouching Tiger 2 in IMAX.]

-

Last night, we received the (unexpected) news that Netflix has struck a deal with The Weinstein Company for the entertainment streaming service to exclusively premiere the sequel Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend in Summer 2015. The plan is for the film to be made available on Netflix the same day that it begins screening in IMAX theaters around the globe; as you might’ve predicted, though, certain U.S. theater chains are already balking at this proposal.

Director Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning Crouching Tiger movie, for those unaware, is based on just one chapter in a ...

‘The Blacklist’: Revenge Isn’t a Passion

20 hours ago

[This is a review of The Blacklist season 2, episode 2. There will be Spoilers]

-

Every so often an episode of The Blacklist features a clear objective, a series of twists that, even if they strain credulity somewhat, at least make sense in terms of motivation, and, most importantly, the stakes are high enough that the importance of the plot goes beyond whether or not Reddington will get his way. And in order to pull that off, someone has to get the drop on ol’ Red, as Elizabeth manages to do here in ‘Monarch Douglas Bank’.

And while the episode is, at heart, a fairly typical installment of The Blacklist, the variable that Click to continue reading ‘The Blacklist’: Revenge Isn’t a Passion

Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Gets ‘Wallflower’ Writer

22 hours ago

Beauty and the Beast is among the centuries-old fairy tales that Walt Disney Pictures previously adapted into an animated feature – and now, the studio is re-inventing the story as a modern live-action movie. The project has a director in Oscar-winner Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 & 2), along with an initial script draft put together by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Hercules); according to the latest update, though, the screenplay is getting a rewrite.

EW is reporting that Disney’s Beauty and the Beast retelling is going to get a fresh script draft penned by Stephen Chbosky, the author/filmmaker whose past work includes the critically-acclaimed movie adaptation of his own teen coming of age novel, ...

Jeremy Renner Signed On For ‘The Avengers 3′ & ‘Hawkeye’ Spinoff

23 hours ago

Jeremy Renner may have jumped into more movie franchises than he can handle. As it stands, the Oscar nominated actor barely has time to fit in passion projects like next month’s Kill The Messenger in between his blockbuster obligations. Coming off shooting The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the actor is currently working away on Mission: Impossible 5 – a series he signed a three-picture deal for after Tom Cruise personally convinced him to do so.

And next up, sequels are in early development for The Bourne Legacy where he may finally team up with Matt Damon, and Hansel & Gretel where the star will return alongside Gemma Arterton (once it finds a new director). It was this over-the-top schedule ...

‘Gotham’ Season 1 Trailer Confirms Even More Comic Villains

29 September 2014 8:31 PM, PDT

With Fox’s Gotham now two episodes under way, one criticism not being voiced by viewers is that the tale of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) really needs more villains to round out the cast. Nevertheless, a new trailer offering a tease of all the action set to arrive in the coming season is filled with cameos, confirming that it isn’t just the most famous Batman villains who will be making Gordon’s life more dangerous.

The trailer confirms that the struggle for power between Carmine Falcone (John Doman), Sal Maroni (David Zayas), and Fish Mooney (Jade Pinkett Smith) will be more than just a subtle subplot, and will help to charge the overall tension in Gotham City’s underworld. But it’s the more… eccentric characters that this war will bring out of the woodwork that even casual fans will be excited to see.

David Fincher to Direct Entire First Season of HBO’s ‘Utopia’

29 September 2014 8:22 PM, PDT

It really is quite surprising just how respected the art of television has become. There was once a time when those who plied their trade on the big screen – whether in front of or behind the camera – avoided working on the small screen like the plague. Going from film to TV was seen as a clear step down and a sign that one’s career was on the decline. That’s certainly not the case today, as critically acclaimed dramas like Breaking Bad, True Detective, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, and Hannibal have served to make the TV world as prestigious a place to work as any Hollywood film ...
