20 August 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sylvester Stallone Prepares For Rambo 5

18 August 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s fairly safe to say that Sylvester Stallone has built a very rewarding, lucrative and long career on two iconic characters – Rocky Balboa and John Rambo. The star wrote, directed and performed in the sixth Rocky film in 2006, effectively drawing that franchise to a close. He then did the same with Rambo in 2008 – delivering a fourth franchise entry that brought the character full circle, with an ending intended to satisfy fans and bring them a sense of closure. But now, Rambo 5 is on the horizon.

The character has been loved by fans since the first film exploded onto the big screen in 1982. First Blood saw Vietnam veteran and former Green Beret John Rambo arrive in the small American town of Hope, in Washington State. Searching for his friend from Special Forces, he discovers that he died of a cancer caused by exposure to Agent Orange. Rambo then clashes violently with local authorities. »

The Dusty VHS Corner: “Pop it Tommy!” – Eric Roberts the Video Maestro

17 August 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe digs deep into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of Eric Roberts movies…

There have been a few stars over the years who started brightly only to see their career fade and sometimes even plummet. Perhaps one of the best examples of someone looking set to become a regular face at Award shows, particularly during the nominations montage, before falling from grace, was Eric Roberts. In fact one of his earlier films, The Pope of Greenwich Village, saw Roberts star with Mickey Rourke, whose career followed the same trajectory. An early run of solid films with critical acclaim, followed by a lengthy spell largely spent in B-movies, with the occasional more high profile bit part thrown in. Whilst Rourke had a second coming with The Wrestler recently, Roberts is still waiting for such an opportunity, and it’s an opportunity that would be fully deserved.

Sylvester Stallone Recalls His Terrible Star Wars Audition

16 August 2014 3:58 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting "The Expendables 3," Sylvester Stallone spoke about his Hollywood career and recalled the time when he auditioned for "Star Wars." "I had just finished 'Rocky,' and I was going up for an audition," he started. "So I go in there and see George Lucas and the producer and I can tell instantly when no one likes you. Not to disparage George Lucas, but after you've seen 100 people, you get tired, so you just hope that the guy in front of you just disappears. I was reading for Han Solo but I got maybe... well, I got nowhere. I was there to read for it and they were like, 'You're really... yeah, you're, um...' I said, 'Let me just make it easy for you, 'I would look like crap in spandex, leotards and a ray gun. I get it! Guys in space don't have this kind of face! »

Sylvester Stallone Started Training For Rambo 5

16 August 2014 3:57 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Sylvester Stallone is probably one of the best in Hollywood in creating jobs for himself. He did it with "Rocky," "Rambo" and now with "The Expendables," which has already completed three installments. Even though the actor has plenty of opportunities to do other movies, he would rather return to what he knows best, which is his "Rambo" franchise. In a new interview with Vulture, Stallone revealed that he's currently working on "Rambo 5." "I'm getting ready for that," he said. "I'm starting to work out. I'm going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart." Stallone previously considered going the sci-fi route with "Rambo 5," but it was recently confirmed that the film would be similar to "No Country For Old Men" and feature Rambo facing off against a Mexican drug cartel. »

15 August 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sylvester Stallone may be 68 years old, but he's in remarkable physical shape and still churning out action movies like the 1980s never ended. For the third chapter of his Expendables franchise he's assembled a murderers row of action stars, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and too many others to mention.

Now we have a question for you: What is Sylvester Stallone's single greatest movie? We know that's a tough question considering he's made six Rocky movies, four Rambo films and Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. There's also Cliffhanger, »

Michael B. Jordan Says Creed Movie Definitely Happening, Confirms Stallone's Involvement

15 August 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sylvester Stallone currently is blowing up movie theaters (figuratively) as a member of The Expendables. But one of Sly.s most iconic franchises plans to continue with his involvement (to a certain extent). We.d heard rumblings about a Creed movie, with Michael B. Jordan playing the pivotal part. Now, we know for sure it.s happening, and probably soon. Last October, we noted that Chonicle star Michael B. Jordan was eyeing the movie Creed, a Rocky spinoff directed by Fruitvale Station helmer Ryan Coogler. The movie is supposed to cast Jordan as the grandson of Apollo Creed.s character . played by Carl Weathers in the original Rocky movies. It also was suggested that Sylvester Stallone would return to the ring to coach Jordan.s young boxer. much the same way that Mickey coached the young Rock way back when this franchise got off the ground.

Sylvester Stallone Wanted to 'Strangle' Arnold Schwarzenegger During Old Rivalry (Video)

15 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger may now be sharing the screen, but back in the '80s there used to be no camaraderie between these movie muscle men. Stallone stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday to share just how far the actors' old rivalry went. "I wanted to strangle him," the Rocky actor cracked. Fortunately, these urges have subsided, and Stallone has only nice things to say about the former California governor. "I think he's brilliant, what he's done, and what he's accomplished. He's had three different careers," Stallone said of Schwarzenegger. Related: How Sylvester Stallone & Arnold Schwarzenegger Became »

Watch: Follow The Camera In 10-Minute Look At 'The Art Of Steadicam'

14 August 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s hard to overstate the revolutionary impact of the Steadicam when camera operator Garrett Brown introduced his invention to the film industry in 1975. The camera stabilizing mount didn’t make its onscreen debut until the next year with the trio of “Bound for Glory,” “Marathon Man” and “Rocky,” all of which involved Steadicam shots operated by Brown himself. With the the device's 40th anniversary around the corner, Refocused Media (via FirstShowing) has crafted a roughly 10-minute-long ode to “The Art Of Steadicam.”  The video starts with, what else, the iconic Copacabana sequence from the Michael Ballhaus-photographed “Goodfellas” featuring legendary Steadicam operator Larry McConkey (seriously, his IMDb page is mostly Steadicam work with occasional “B” camera work) trailing Henry Hill as he shows both Karen and the audience what a big shot he is. From there, the video is a greatest hits of Steadicam shots »

Flashback: Sylvester Stallone Stars in 1970 Softcore Porn Film

14 August 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Six years before he broke big with Rocky, Sylvester Stallone was a struggling 24-year-old actor desperate for work of any kind, which explains why he agreed to star in a low-budget skin flick called Party at Kitty and Stud's. The legend of the movie has grown over the years – many have become convinced that it's a hardcore sex film – but the truth is far less interesting: It's merely a supremely boring and inept softcore affair.

Though it went mainstream when Deep Throat came out, pornography was really a fringe art »

Expendables 3 Review

14 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The third Expendables movie has expanded it’s cast. Including the old favourites (quite literally) of  Rocky, Kindergarten Cop, Ivan Drago and Chev Chelios, the crew has now increased to a whopping sixteen hard nosed bad asses. Some of the new faces include Frasier, Han Solo, Blade and Puss ‘n Boots. For their third outing Rocky and company take on Martin Riggs in a movie that delivers the same old beats time and time again. There is nothing new here as the stunts seem as old as some of the cast, but none the less, The Expendables 3 delivers plenty of bang for your buck. Movies like this are almost review proof. With a huge installed fan base and Sylvester Stallone rounding everybody up (with the exception of a moody Bruce Willis, who proved too difficult to get back), this will keep action movie fans grinning from ear to ear. »

Elderly action heroes and Hollywood age issues

14 August 2014 12:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of The Expendables 3 leads James to the conclusion that, when it comes to being an action hero, age is just a number...

"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73 I have learned a little... a little about the real structure of nature, of animals, plants, trees, birds, fishes and insects. In consequence when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90 I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100 I shall certainly have reached a marvellous stage; and when I am 110, everything I do, be it a dot or a line, will be alive." - Hokusai, the Japanese artist who painted the famous 'Great Wave off Kanagawa' and kept on creating astounding art until his death at the age of 88.

Terry Crews interview: The Expendables 3, Stallone and the PG-13 rating

13 August 2014 12:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As The Expandables 3 arrives in the UK, Duncan meets Terry Crews for a chat about action, working with Sly and the sequel's PG-13 rating...

Now this doesn’t happen every day. I don’t mean having some face to face time with the lovely man mountain that is Terry Crews, but meeting someone who actually seemed to love The Expendables franchise even more than me. As the gang’s own Hale Caesar, Crews was able to blend his former NFL physique and combine it with his background in comedy acting to great effect, and it’s amazing that his action movie roles have been so few and far between on his CV, but he’s a man who clearly loves the genre and all its underappreciated virtues.

For those of you who have yet to see the hysterical Brooklyn Nine-Nine (the first season of which finished earlier this year) it comes highly recommended, »

The Expendables 3 movie review: like you care what I think

12 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There’s just no point in even bothering. In the vast conspiracy of stupidity that has overtaken pop culture, the disparagement of this movie by a film critic becomes an endorsement of a sad, twisted sort. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): the franchise had worn out whatever welcome it might have had before the end of the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s just no point in even bothering. I could huff and puff and moan and groan and explain why The Expendables 3 is a terrible excuse for a movie… even for a dumb cheesy 80s-throwback action movie. I could go into great detail about the laziness of the writing, about how perfunctory the directing is, about the blatant obvious cheapness of the FX.

It doesn’t matter. There is nothing I can say that will »
