From Swashbucklers to Supermen: A Brief History of Action-Movie Heroes

1 September 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

Video of the Day: Watch how the original and remake of ‘Insomnia’ differ from each other

30 August 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the course of movie history, numerous films have been remade in other languages. Hollywood has been no exception to this rule, with perhaps 1960’s The Magnificent Seven standing as the most notable example of a remake, bringing Akira Kurosawa’s classic The Seven Samurai to a new audience, with David Fincher’s 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo proving that the trend is still alive and well.

Remakes, however, come in all forms, from devoted redoings to loose interpretations by filmmakers who put their own unique stamp on the material. The latter category includes the 2002 film Insomnia, which was directed by Christopher Nolan. The latter’s third film, and his last before taking on the Dark Knight trilogy, was an adaptation of Erik Skjoldbjærg’s 1997 film of the same name, with Alaska stepping in for Norway, and Al Pacino stepping in for Stellan Skarsgård.

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...


One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

The Man from Uncle review: A fizzy antidote to 007

Suave spy caper The Man From Uncle opens this week, revamping the cult '60s TV series and bringing it to the big screen for the first time in nearly 50 years. If you've never seen the original show or its eight movie spin-offs, here's your handy guide to get you up to speed...

1. The Man From Uncle was created by James Bond's Ian Fleming... sort of

The original idea to make a television series about a suave, sophisticated spy who travelled the world fighting villainy came from producer Norman Felton. He was interested in presenting each episode from the point of view of an innocent person - say, a housewife or a farmer - who find themselves drawn into an adventure beyond their wildest dreams.

In 1962, Felton pitched the idea to none other than James Bond creator Ian Fleming; based not »

10 Upcoming Sequels And Reboots That Will Destroy Your Faith In Cinema

Columbia Pictures

According to William Goldman, who won Oscars for writing Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and All The President’s Men, there are three types of movies: those that aspire to quality and succeed, those that aspire to quality and fail, and those that were never meant to be any good at all.

The last group, Goldman claims, comprises “movies for which the pulse was either totally or primarily financial: rip-offs, spin-offs, sequels etc.” In other words, most of today’s pictures are about as creative and well intentioned as Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

Executives that talk about rebooting this or reimagining that sound like Eskimos describing snow, using multiple words to describe the same thing. In the end, they only require two – ‘cash’ and ‘grab’.

There have, of course, always been sequels and remakes, and the world would be a poorer place without »

Sony's The Dark Tower Will Face Off Against The Power Rangers Reboot

6 August 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Movies studios are always looking for vacant weeks for their films. Without competition, obviously, these films have a better chance of making millions of dollars. Studios have even gone to great lengths to move the release dates of their films so that not competing with another project. But Columbia and Lionsgate Films have forgone tradition and gallantly decided to go head to head, as The Dark Tower and Power Rangers, respectively, are both now going to be released on January 13th, 2017. But that.s not the only big money movie that.s due to come out that exact same day. Because Columbia Pictures, according to Box Office Mojo, have also scheduled The Magnificent Seven for a January 13th, 2017, release date, too. Take that with a grain of salt, as IMDb still has a 2016 release date on Seven. But basically, that means that on the second Friday of 2017, you »

Sony set release dates for 16 new films

5 August 2015 11:56 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sony Pictures has set release dates for 16 new films. The best news that we can see from the list is that there are two Bad Boys sequels amongst them – one for release in 2017, and the fourth film in the series in 2019.

On the list is a potential reboot of Jumanji , the sixth movie in the Resident Evil franchise that we spoke of yesterday, and a street date for a Barbie movie, which we believe is being written by Juno scribe Diablo Cody.

Here’s the full list of movies, along with their Us release dates.

No future Bond on this list, thought Sony will probably announce that in good time ahead of a sure-thing, the 25th adventure in the 007 franchise, and potentially a final bow for star Daniel Craig.

Money Monster – 4/8/16

The Shallows – 6/24/16

Ghostbusters – 7/15/16*

Patient Zero – 9/2/16

The Magnificent Seven – 9/23/16*

Underworld 5 – 10/21/16

Passengers – 12/21/16

Jumanji – 12/25/16

Adam Sandler discusses The Ridiculous 6 controversy

20 July 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking to The Associated Press (via The Hollywood Reporter), Adam Sandler has addressed the controversy on the set of his latest film, The Ridiculous 6, which is the comedian’s first venture with Netflix.

At the premiere of his new film Pixels, Sandler was asked about the Native American actors who walked off the set of Ridiculous 6 in April due to the offensive content of the film to their culture. Some actors were reportedly upset over the names of some of the characters, as well as a scene where a Native American woman smokes a peace pipe while urinating.

“It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up,” Sandler said over the weekend, while also saying the film was “100 percent pro-American Indian”.

The Ridiculous Six is a spoof-comedy which pokes fun at the Western genre, including the classic The Magnificent Seven.

Adam Sandler wants to set the record straight about his Netflix comedy “The Ridiculous 6,” which saw several Native American actors storm off the set earlier this year. “It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out, it will be cleared up,” Sandler told The Associated Press Saturday at the premiere of his new movie “Pixels.” “Ridiculous 6” spoofs Westerns and takes its name from the classic “The Magnificent Seven.” But not everyone is laughing.

James Coburn: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

14 July 2015 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed James Coburn in late 1998 for the cover story of the February 1999 issue of Venice Magazine. I had grown up watching Coburn on the late show, but also seeing him on the big screen, first-run. Meeting him was a thrill as he entered the living room of his manager, the late Hilly Elkins', home in Beverly Hills. Coburn was elegant, charming and had the grace of a cat. The only thing that revealed the health problems that had nearly done him in were his gnarled hands, the result of severe arthritis. We spoke about his role in Paul Schrader's newest film, "Affliction," which would earn him a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award. Later, as I walked Coburn to his Acura Nsx sport coupe, he bid me a warm farewell.

Several months later, I encountered him again at The Independent Spirit Awards, in Santa Monica. I went up »

Week in Review: Theater chains reduce release window before VOD

10 July 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every year the movies seem to be dying. The writing is on the wall with attendance numbers and box office receipts and the Golden Age of TV. Will people still go to the movies if they can now watch high quality, HD programming from their own home?

Theater chains themselves have been reluctant to give in to Netflix and VOD, but at the risk of being made obsolete entirely, two chains are doing an experiment suggesting they may be willing to play ball. THR reported this week that Paramount, AMC Theaters, and Cineplex have struck a deal regarding two of their upcoming films, the new Paranormal Activity movie, and Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, both October releases. Traditionally, movies are not available on VOD or digital release until three to four months after their initial run in theaters is over, which can be anywhere from a month to six weeks for genre movies. »

Netflix Dates Beasts Of No Nation And Others In First Feature Film Slate

7 July 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having revolutionized the television landscape by pioneering the modern phenomenon of binge-watching and bringing Oscar-caliber actors to the small screen, Netflix is now setting its sights on feature programming. Today, the streaming giant has firmed up plans to release its first sequence of theatrical-quality pics, including Beasts of No Nation and The Ridiculous Six.

Beasts of No Nation, directed by True Detective helmer Cary Fukunaga, will be released on Netflix and in select theaters on October 16. The award-tipped drama focuses on a child soldier (Abraham Attah) stolen away from his family and recruited into a civil war effort under the brutal tutelage of a warlord (Idris Elba). Its day-and-date theatrical and streaming bow will qualify the pic for Oscar attention, which had been a worry after the major theater chains boycotted the film over concerns that Netflix wasn’t honoring the typical route for theatrical releases.
