Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

The Essential Films and TV to Stream – September 8th 2014

8 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.

In better news David Wain’s relatively well »

Shane Black's The Nice Guys set for summer 2016

2 September 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shane Black's next directorial project post-Iron Man 3? The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe...

Before he steps behind the camera for the next Predator film, Shane Black will be following up Iron Man 3 with his next directorial project, The Nice Guys. Described as a noir crime drama set in 1970s Los Angeles, the film is being backed by Warner Bros (who previously released Black's directorial debut, the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), and has Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe attached as the two leads.

And we now know when to expect the film. The Nice Guys has been earmarked for a release date of June 17th 2016, which is the same day that Pixar is releasing Finding Dory. It puts The Nice Guys in the midst of the releases of the new The Mummy film, and the Uncharted movie.

Production can't be too far away from starting. »

Shane Black’s ‘Nice Guys’ Gets an Official 2016 Release Date

2 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 helmsman Shane Black has a finger in several pies right now, including a movie adaptation of the Doc Savage pulp adventure novels, a new installment in the Predator franchise (an “inventive sequel,” as Black calls it), and a film based on Warner Murphy and Richard Sapir’s Destroyer paperback novels.

However, we can now safely say that Black’s next project will be the noir/detective film The Nice Guys. Production on the film will begin this fall (according to the official press release from Warner Bros.), so that the project can make a Summer 2016 release date. Producer Joel Silver, who’s been working alongside Black ...

Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Coming To The UK To Appear Live On Stage!

2 September 2014 1:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Following in the footsteps of Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta, movie legend Arnold Schwarzenegger will take to the stage in London later this year in a special Q+A and movie retrospective, hosted by chat show host/ comedian Jonathan Ross. According to the press release we’ve just received, the qudience will also get the chance to purchase tickets for a one to one photo opportunity and a very select and private meet and greet session. Arnie will also take part in a black tie dinner event at The Grand Pavillion, Leeds.

“For once I won’t have a publicist saying, ‘Don’t ask him about his private life, don’t ask him how much money he makes, how much is in the bank,’ all that kind of stuff,” he said of the UK dates. “England really was the country that gave me the biggest break in my career. I »

'The Unseen Arnold' and a Young Shane Black

29 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Taken from one of the many (or perhaps all) of the DVD/Blu-ray releases of Predator over the years, and brought to my attention by Refocused Media, just below is the DVD extra "The Unseen Arnold", which features the cast and crew of Predator talking about how great it is to work with Arnold Schwarzenegger. amz asin="B00G0OHMUG" size="small"Now there's nothing revelatory about this video, but I'm posting it because I found the inclusion of a young Shane Black to be entertaining as he played Hawkins in the film before became known as the screenwriter of Lethal Weapon, director of Iron Man 3 and possible director of a new Predator film. Give it a watch, it's a fun distraction on a Friday afternoon. »

'Die Hard' Director John McTiernan Reveals Next Film Projects at Bankruptcy Hearing (Exclusive)

28 August 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Stick around a Wyoming bankruptcy court long enough and you'll never know what you'll hear -- John Travolta signing up for a forthcoming Top Gun-type film, a lack of universal love for the acting chops of Arnold Schwarzenegger, and most especially, what in the world Die Hard director John McTiernan has been up to lately. Once the film world's top gun himself for such blockbusters as The Hunt for Red October and Predator, McTiernan spent 10 months in a South Dakota prison cell after pleading guilty to lying to law enforcement officers investigating him for hiring private eye Anthony Pellicano

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Last Action Hero’ (1993)

26 August 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last Action Hero

Written by Zak Penn, Adam Leff, Shane Black, and David Argott

Directed by John McTiernan

USA, 1993

The concept of a film within a film is an idea that provides for truly interesting cinema. Films that are self-referential, satiric, and make fun of their own genre are often hilarious, thought-provoking, and downright fun. 1993’s cult favorite Last Action Hero is an action-fantasy that pokes fun at the action film genre in more ways than one. It stars the incomparable blockbuster movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger who is playing himself. Last Action Hero pretty much has it all and if you are a fan of the Austrian star or just action cinema in general, then this is the perfect film for you.

The film focuses on Danny Madigan (Austin O’Brien), a 12-year-old troublemaker obsessed with movies, in particular those of action hero Jack Slater, a fictionalized version of Schwarzenegger. »

Shane Black bringing Remo Williams back to the screen with The Destroyer

25 August 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In 1985, MGM brought former cop turned government agent Remo Williams to the screen with Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (a.k.a. Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous), hoping to launch a franchise based upon Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s The Destroyer series of pulp novels with Fred Ward (Tremors) in the lead role.

While that effort failed to take off, it looks like Sony is looking to give the character another chance at big screen success, with Deadline revealing that Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3) has signed on to direct The Destroyer from a script by Jim Uhls (Fight Club) and James Mullaney, co-author of several books in the series.

“Shane has been a fan of the original Destroyer book series since its inception and he has an incredible vision for this film,” said Charles Roven (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who will serve as producer. »

Shane Black to Direct The Destroyer for Sony Pictures

22 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by Lee Weeks

Iron Man 3 director Shane Black has signed on to direct a film project for Sony Pictures called The Destroyer, which is based on an adventure book series. Black also recently signed on to direct a Predator sequel for Fox, Doc Savage for Columbia Pictures, and also a film at Warner Bros. called Nice Guys with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. The director is definitely keeping himself busy. The movie will be written by Jim Uhls (Fight Club) and James Mullaney, who is the author of the books. Here's a description of the story and characters:

Newark cop Remo Williams is framed, sentenced to death, then resurrected following a botched execution. The reason? To serve as enforcement arm for Cure, a top-secret, extra-Constitutional arm of the U.S. government. Along with a seemingly ageless – and often hilarious – Asian assassin known only as Chiun, Williams sets out »

Shane Black to Direct ‘The Destroyer’ Movie Adaptation

22 August 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Amazing what one stellar franchise picture can do for a person’s career. Just take a look at Shane Black, Lethal Weapon screenwriter turned Marvel wunderkind following his efforts on 2013′s Iron Man 3; that film crossed the billion dollar finish line and scored highly among critics (despite striking controversy among fans), and in the wake of its success Black has been writing his own ticket through Hollywood. That Doc Savage movie he’s flirted with since 2010? It’s on the way toward production, and may yet star Chris Hemsworth.

Bully for Black, then, and his luck doesn’t end there either: he’s also working on that surprise Predator sequel nobody saw coming - yet another film ...

Shane Black to direct The Destroyer

22 August 2014 12:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shane Black's on board to direct an adaptation of the adventure book series The Destroyer, with Fight Club's Jim Uhls on script duties...

Since the blockbusting success of Iron Man 3, Shane Black has found himself well and truly back on top in the fickle corridors of Hollywood. So much so that not only is he currently in the throes of making his next film - noir-ish thriller The Nice Guys, which sounds like a welcome throwback to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - but he also has two other high-profile projects in the works.

You might recall that these are an adaptation of Doc Savage for DC, and also a new Predator movie, which he's going to write with his old Monster Squad friend Fred Dekker.

As if all that wasn't enough for Black to be thinking about, it's now being reported that the screenwriter-turned director is also »

Shane Black to Resurrect Remo Williams in 'The Destroyer'

21 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Unless you were reading pulp novels in the '70s or watching cheesy Fred Ward movies in the '80s, you may not know the name Remo Williams. Star of The Destroyer series, he was a hard-boiled cop framed for murder whose botched execution nets him a job with a secret government agency that fights America's more obscure threats, including everything from cyborgs to ninjas to Rasputin. So who better to resurrect a hard-boiled cop who fights terrorists and robots than Lethal Weapon writer and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black? Black has been attached to a few high-profile projects since Iron Man 3, so The Destroyer joins Predator and Doc Savage in the list of movies we hope are made as quickly as possible. And while we don't know where this one fits in the...

Shane Black Will Direct ‘The Destroyer’ and We Desperately Hope He Includes Some Were-Tigers

21 August 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Shane Black has become Hollywood’s go-to guy for bringing relevance to the extremely irrelevant. When did anyone talk about Doc Savage before Black got his hands on it? The same goes for Predator. That ingeniously designed Stan Winston beastie had been reduced to TV movie-like blandness after four sequels that no one cared about even a little. Yet now that Black has his sights on the Predator, we’re all, oooooooohh, this has potential! Does Black have the time to rejuvenate all the franchises your dad (or grandpa) is so very fond of? Who cares! Let’s just throw another one on the pile and see what happens. That’s the strategy Sony has apparently taken, as they’ve commissioned The Destroyer from adapting writers Jim Uhls and James Mullaney (one of the many authors of the “Destroyer” book series). Now, according to Deadline, they’re handing that script to Black and instructing him to run »

Shane Black Set to Direct Remo Williams Adaptation 'The Destroyer'

21 August 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, director Shane Black already has a full future slate with projects like an adaptation of the pulp hero Doc Savage and a reboot of Predator in the works, and now one more has been added to the mix. Sony Pictures has announced that Black will direct an adaptation of The Destroyer, the adventure book series by Warren Murphy that follows Newark cop Remo Williams, who is framed, sentenced to death, then resurrected following a botched execution in order to serve as enforcement arm for Cure, a top-secret, extra-Constitutional arm of the U.S. government. That absolutely sounds like the perfect project for Black. Along with an amusing Asian assassin known only as Chiun, Williams sets out to clean up the streets and take out those who oppose America’s interests. If you can't tell, there's obviously a social satire angle here, but the books also have a lot of suspense, »

Shane Black to Direct The Destroyer Adaptation for Sony

21 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It was pretty much a given that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang helmer Shane Black would have some heat coming off of directing the $1.5 billion-grossing Iron Man 3, but the guy is amassing a seriously stacked docket of upcoming projects.  The latest one to be added is an adaptation of the long-running Warren Murphy book series The Destroyer.  Sony Pictures announced today that Black will direct a feature film adaptation of the adventure series, with Fight Club scribe Jim Uhls penning the screenplay alongside James Mullaney.  The story follows Newark cop Remo Williams, who is framed, sentenced to death, executed, and then resurrected in order to serve as the enforcement arm for a top-secret division of the Us government called Cure.  The Dark Knight and Man of Steel producer Charles Roven will produce. Hit the jump for more on The Destroyer movie and Black’s current slate of upcoming projects. In addition to The Destroyer, »

The birth, death and regeneration of the Universal Soldier movies

20 August 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Universal Soldier began in 1992 before suffering from some tawdry sequels. Then John Hyams revived the franchise in spectacular fashion...

The Universal Soldier films are a strange case of life imitating art. Much like how series protagonist Luc Deveraux is killed in action then resurrected into something post-human, Universal was a pretty standard 90s action film which crashed and burned when it came to sequels, but became something unique and beautiful when it was reanimated for the straight to DVD market.

It’s a hushed secret among genre fans, but Universal Solder 3 and 4 (or possibly 5 and 6, it’s complicated) are some of the most remarkable action sci-fi films of the 21st century so far. Yes, really. I actually watched the series backwards when I first saw them, after being blown away by Universal Solder Day Of Reckoning and deciding to work my way back, and Roland Emmerich’s perfectly acceptable 1992 blockbuster »
