Gallery: Toys, Models And Stalls From The 2014 Comic-Con Floor

25 July 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Like The Wild Bunch, only a lot less wild and in more of a loose grouping, Team Empire is currently patrolling the floor of the San Diego Convention Centre, scouring Comic-Con to snap every ounce of geek minutiae going. And there’s a lot of it. Tonnes. There’s Breaking Bad memorabilia, Walking Dead collectibles, Bat-business, actual Transformers, Avengers goodies, Hobbit wyrms, a camp Sentinel from X-Men and a partridge in a Mirkwood tree. If we look hard enough we’ll probably find an ageing Snake Plissken’s bifocal. Click on the images below to peruse this fanboy cornucopia at your leisure. »

Alex Kurtzman Talks Universal Monsters And The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise Plans

17 July 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alex Kurtzman is undoubtedly one of the busiest guys in Hollywood, and his handle on major tentpole franchises has only grown since parting ways with longtime producing partner Roberto Orci. The two worked together on such films as Transformers, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Cowboys & Aliens, Ender’s Game, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but will be shifting gears a bit for their upcoming projects.

Orci is reportedly not helping out with the expansive Spider-Man movie universe, which includes The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4, as well as villain-centric spin-offs Venom and Sinister Six. Instead, he’s shepherding Star Trek 3 and overseeing the Power Rangers reboot, while Kurtzman sets his sights on a Universal Monsters shared movie universe and directing duties on Venom (and will serve as an “architect” for the rest of the Spidey-verse).

Kurtzman was recently interviewed by Collider, and talked a bit about both the Spider-Man »

Joe Carnahan Says Five Against A Bullet Is Likely His Next Film; Might Cast a Younger Lead

16 July 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan doesn’t mess around.  His movies range from gritty thrillers like Narc to big summer tentpoles like The A-Team to thoughtful, existential dramas like The Grey, and recently he’s been delving into television to great success with The Blacklist and the upcoming State of Affairs.  Though his latest feature film, a small-scale crazy actioner called Stretch, is currently looking for a distributor, we recently learned that Carnahan is lining up another feature project in Five Against a Bullet.  The Wild Bunch-esque story revolves around five bodyguards that are hired to protect a Mexican politician through a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. At the TCA Press Tour, Christina interviewed Carnahan in anticipation of his upcoming drama series State of Affairs, and the director touched on Five Against the Bullet, revealing that it will probably be his next film.  Check out »

Joe Carnahan to Write & Direct 'Five Against a Bullet' at Sony Pictures

25 June 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While his action thriller Stretch is still waiting for a new release date after being pulled from the calendar this year, director Joe Carnahan is already setting up his next project. The Wrap has learned that The A-Team and The Grey director is set to write and direct Five Against a Bullet, an action thriller described as calling back to "classic macho movies" like The Wild Bunch and The Magnificent Seven. The film will follow five bodyguards hired to protect a Mexican politician over the course of a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. Sounds like it could have been The A-Team sequel. Collider was the first to report on the project after speaking with Transformers franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The producer said, "It is a tale of a group of men who have become cynical, sort of lost their sense of hope about life and the world, »

Joe Carnahan Will Write And Direct Five Against A Bullet

25 June 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane, Narc, Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team and The Grey on his resume, writer-director Joe Carnahan has certainly built his career on badass protagonists who fit traditional ideas of masculinity, which makes him a perfect fit for his next project - Five Against a Bullet, which Sony described recently as being in the spirit of The Wild Bunch and The Magnificent Seven.

The flick, which Carnahan will both direct and rewrite, working off an original script from Alex Litvak, follows a group of five bodyguards recruited to keep a Mexican politician alive during a controversial election after the politician’s father is brutally killed by a major drug cartel. Going off that, we can expect a lot of cool-as-a-cucumber badasses and plenty of explosive action.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently spoke about Carnahan’s involvement with the project, stating:

Joe Carnahan to Write, Direct ‘Five Against a Bullet’ for Sony

25 June 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Joe Carnahan is set to write and direct “Five Against a Bullet” for Sony Pictures, TheWrap has confirmed. Described as being in the vein of classic macho movies “The Wild Bunch” and “The Magnificent Seven,” the story follows five bodyguards hired to protect a Mexican politician over the course of a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. The project is right up Carnahan's alley, as the filmmaker has done a great job exploring masculinity in both “The Grey” and “Narc.” He also directed “The A-Team,” which brought together four unlikely heroes who save the world. »

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura Says Joe Carnahan Is Working on Five Against A Bullet; Gives Update on Deepwater Horizon

21 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As the producer behind the Transformers franchise, the Red series, and films like Salt and The Last Stand, Lorenzo di Bonaventura always has a number of irons in the fire with regards to upcoming projects.  While speaking with the producer at the Transformers: Age of Extinction junket in Hong Kong recently, Steve also took the opportunity to talk with di Bonaventura about the films he has in development, and he provided some promising updates on a few projects.  The producer revealed that director Joe Carnahan is now working on the ensemble action film Five Against a Bullet, and provided a status update on the oil rig disaster film Deepwater Horizon.  Hit the jump to read on. Lorenzo di Bonaventura has been working on a film called Five Against a Bullet for a few years now, attaching Bruce Willis to star back in 2012.  The pic is in the vein of The Wild Bunch »

Mad Men @ the Movies: That Wild Bunch and Their Waterloo?

26 May 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Last night we said our final goodbyes to Mad Men. Oh wait, no. Our penultimate goodbye to Mad Men but boy did it feel like a series closer. There are seven episodes to go, ruthlessly delayed until 2015 which will serve no one but AMC executives, but I wouldn't blame anyone for saying their goodbyes now. You'd be going out on such a well earned high, a breath-taking, teary-eyed, conflicted-emotion farewell in two episodes.

I want to go to the movies!"

Peggy whines in "The Strategy" as she struggles through her doubts about a campaign pitch for potential new lucrative client Burger Chef. Mad Men almost always hits its peak whenever it zeroes back in on the long form pas de deux between Don and Peggy. In this episode they refind each other as Don (Jon Hamm) helps Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) trust in her own creativity and Peggy learns to forgive her hard-to-love mentor. »

Mid-season finale review: 'Mad Men' - 'Waterloo'

25 May 2014 9:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the "Mad Men" mid-season finale coming up just as soon as I have to talk to people who just touched the face of God about hamburgers... "Bravo." -Bert Cooper In Peggy's pitch to Burger Chef — easily the best she's ever given, and one that gets much closer to the level of the Carousel pitch than I think we might have ever imagined anyone on this show (including Don himself) reaching again — she talks about how Neil Armstrong's first footsteps on the moon brought the whole world together, all watching the same amazing thing as it happened. It's a masterful blend of current events with the themes she and Don had already decided on — turning the thing that she feared would torpedo the pitch and making it into the element that closes the deal and nearly moves the Burger Chef executives to tears — demonstrating a keen »

Talking Movies, Episode 4: Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Easy Rider (1969), The Wild Bunch (1969)

By Mark Pinkert

Contributor

In Episode 4 of Talking Movies, Scott and I discuss three landmark films from the 1960s: Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Easy Rider (1969), and The Wild Bunch (1969). What do these films tell us about the contemporary movie industry and its break from the Motion Picture Production Code? How did these films deal with sex and violence, and how did those themes converge with other attitudes of the 1960s? Who were the rising actors and directors of the time, and how did these films shape their celebrity personae? Listen to a discussion of these topics and many more in Episode 4 of Talking Movies.

~ Talking Movies is a podcast series covering classic films from the 20th century. In this episode, our guest co-host is Scott Feinberg, the lead awards analyst for The Hollywood Reporter and the founder/editor-in-chief of ScottFeinberg.com.

10 Best Revenge Thriller Movies Ever Made

6 May 2014 2:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Radius-twc

Revenge has motivated characters in stories since humans first started telling them. From the vengeful gods of ancient mythology onwards, acts of retribution – often violent in the extreme – have been a staple ingredient of a narrative which, as we all know, is best served cold.

The vengeance motive is certainly one which hands the structure to you on a plate – someone performs an act of injustice against someone else, who then takes the law into their own hands and opts for an eye for an eye rather than the courts of justice. Blue Ruin, on release in cinemas this week, is a classic example of this basic set-up – a lean, effective and sometimes very bloody revenge thriller in which vagrant Dwight (Macon Blair) returns to his childhood home town to kill the man who murdered his parents, unleashing a wave of tit for tat reciprocal violence which escalates out of control. »

'John From Cincinnati' is not on HBO Go or Amazon Prime, and it should be

23 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

So HBO is coming to Amazon. This is good news, I think, insofar as anything that makes the great shows of the HBO Renaissance available to more people is good news. I’m a TV obsessive of a certain age — definition of “a certain age” freely covering anyone who remembers when “TV is better than movies” was an argument that you had to make, when TV-on-dvd was the technological forefront, and when the notion of “downloading” a TV show didn’t seem needlessly wasteful of valuable hard drive space.

Vince Gilligan on the Breaking Bad finale

22 April 2014 11:03 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 23 Apr 2014 - 07:02

Breaking Bad showrunner and creator Vince Gilligan talks about how he came up with the show's eventual ending.

This article contains spoilers for Breaking Bad and The Wild Bunch.

As part of Entertainment Weekly's look at finales to popular TV shows, it's inevitably spent some time looking at last September's ending to Breaking Bad. And it's been chatting to showrunner Vince Gilligan about coming up with said ending.

Gilligan told EW that the finale "was glimmering in my brain somewhere in season 3, but I started to think about it more in earnest in season 4". Arguing that the story of Breaking Bad was always finite, Gilligan admitted that "in the early days I really wasn’t thinking about the ending that much, because I was just feeling lucky to have a show on the air at all", but that debates about when the show should »

'Seven Samurai': Why Your Favorite Movies Owe a Huge Debt to the Japanese Classic

22 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Why is "Seven Samurai" considered one of the greatest films ever made? I'd answer that by telling you to go watch it right now, but you probably don't have 3 hours and 27 minutes free at the moment. (It goes by super fast, though, which is one of the reasons the movie is great.)

One reason is simply the movie's vast influence. Released 60 years ago this week in Japan (on April 26, 1954), Akira Kurosawa's epic has had an incalculable impact on adventure filmmaking for six decades. Some of your favorite movies owe a huge debt to "Seven Samurai," and you may not even realize it.

The movie's plot has proved simple but durable: The residents of a farming village are beset by roving bandits until they hire a septet of ronin to defend them. Despite the lengthy running time, that's pretty much it, plus a lot of character development so that you »

William Friedkin: The Hollywood Sorcerer Interview

William Friedkin: Why Sorcerer’s Spell Refuses to Die

By

Alex Simon

In the mid-1970s, there were few American filmmakers riding as high as William Friedkin. The French Connection swept the 1971 Academy Awards, nabbing Friedkin a Best Director statuette. The Exorcist, released two years later, broke box office records to become one of the top grossing films of all time. Boasting creative power and freedom that most directors could only dream about, Friedkin opted to film an updated version of French auteur Henri-Georges Clouzot’s classic The Wages of Fear (1953).

The result, 1977’s Sorcerer, became one of the most notorious box office bombs of the decade. Its dark, unrelenting tale of four desperate, disparate men (Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Rabal, Amidou) who undertake a suicide mission by driving truckloads of nitroglycerine across the rugged South American jungle wasn’t what the changing tide of audience tastes were buying then, »

Trailers from Hell Goes West to 'Paint Your Wagon'

2 April 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This week on Trailers from Hell, writer and produce Alan Spencer talks Joshua Logan's outsize 1969 gold rush musical "Paint Your Wagon," starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin and Jean Seberg. Movie musicals don't come with a more problematic pedigree than director Josh Logan's Paint Your Wagon. Starring two notably tone-deaf non-singers, Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood, and written by that exemplar of "Kitchen Sink" realism, Paddy Chayefsky, Logan's film is a 2 1/2 hour musical made at a time when the genre was considered box-office poison (the film turned out to be one of Paramount's highest grossing films but never earned enough to cover its budget). Marvin, who had a No. 1 hit in the UK with his rendition of "Wanderin' Star," turned down The Wild Bunch for this. »

Travolta & Hawke Head For Valley Of Violence

19 March 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Ethan Hawke has made a comfortable home at Jason Blum's indie horror production company Blumhouse recently, with Sinister and The Purge. And he's staying put for his next movie, co-starring with John Travolta in In A Valley Of Violence. Ti West (House Of The Devil, The Innkeepers) is the director.Genre-wise this appears on the surface to be an unusual Blumhouse project, since its being described as a Western rather than a horror flick. Revenge seems to be the order of the day, however, with that title indicating that blood will be up and the bodycount might be high. Given the pedigree of the studio and the director, we'd doubt this is going to be a My Darling Clementine. Expect something more Corbucci than Ford.No plot details have yet been released, other than that the film is set in the 1890s (so the dying days of the Old West, »
