Central Intelligence review – amiable odd-couple caper

30 June 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A by-the-numbers plot doesn’t stop the central duo of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart from hitting all the right notes in this good-humoured action comedy

Some films get very lucky with topical gags hitting the mark more effectively than the writers could have realised. The one about Taylor Swift here got a very big laugh when I saw it. This is a likable odd-couple action comedy from director and co-writer Rawson Marshall Thurber, who gave us Dodgeball. I suspect he has been influenced by Ivan Reitman’s Twins from 1988, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. (I even wondered if he had seen Dominik Moll’s black-comic classic Harry, Un Ami Qui Vous Veut Du Bien, from 2000.) It starts with that sine qua non of the modern studio comedy: the “anti-nostalgia prelude” sequence set in high school when the protagonists were hilariously naff. It’s wish fulfilment for comedy writers, »

Predator 4 Begins Shooting This September in Vancouver

12 June 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Shane Black's upcoming sequel Predator 4 will be titled Predator. It begins shooting this September in Vancouver. And the massive production will last through December. This news comes courtesy of the Director's Guild of Canada. At this time, no cast has been officially announced. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been rumored to return as Dutch from the 1987 original, and rapper 50 Cent has said he's part of the team, but that has never been confirmed by 20th Century Fox.

The DGA has The Predator listed to start shooting on September 26. At this time, it isn't known if the entirety of the movie will be done in Vancouver, or if there are location shoots planned after December. It also isn't known how much of the movie will be shot in studio as opposed to out in the jungle. In fact, a setting hasn't been disclosed, with the previous reboot Predators taking place in the forest. It's not clear if this next entry in the saga will follow suit.

The Predator was supposed to arrive in March 2018, but last month 20th Century Fox moved the sequel into February. The story is confirmed to take place in modern day, and will not revisit the 80s as some have speculated. While it has been acknowledged that Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken meetings for The Predator, Shane Black refuses to further comment on his involvement. But it is believed that we'll get reintroduced to Dutch thirty years after he first tangled with the alien killing machine who hunts humans for sport. Dutch will not be the main hero, though, as Black has revealed the lead character is named Quinn MacKenna.

As of now, Schwarzenegger is listed as 'still in talks', though he has not officially committed to the movie in any capacity. It isn't known if the hesitation to return stems from his involvement in Terminator Genisys, which was a box office flop. There were 2 more Terminator reboot sequels planned with Arnie in the lead, but they were put on indefinite hold. The action icon is currently gearing up to shoot two other long-awaited sequels to some of his best known movies, including the follow-up to Twins titled Triplets, which reunites him with Danny DeVito and brings in Eddie Murphy as a third sibling. And The Legend of Conan.

Though Shane Black is also signed to direct Dwayne Johnson in a reboot adaptation of Doc Savage, the Iron Man 3 director has confirmed that The Predator is his next project. The filmmaker has a unique history with the Predator franchise. While working as a screenwriter in the 80s, behind such hits as the Lethal Weapon franchise, he was asked to help with the Predator script. While he turned that side of the production down, he did decided to take on a role as a member of Dutch's team, playing the character known as Hawkins.

The Predator will arrive in theaters on February 9, 2018. Shane Black's latest movie The Nice Guys is currently playing in theaters across the country. Thus far, an official Predator teaser poster has been released by 20th Century Fox. We suspect that we'll be getting official casting information soon as the shoot is just around the corner. »

17 movie sequels that are stuck in development hell

Meet the films sequels that might not be dead, but are certainly stuck in some kind of limbo...

Every now and then, a sequel that appears to have been in the cooker for a while – Zoolander 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Anchorman 2 – finally escapes into the wild. But the journey to the screen can be a very lengthy one, and this little lot are still trying to find their way to your local multiplex…

Dick Tracy 2

Disney gambled hard on bringing Dick Tracy to the screen in the summer of 1990, backing the vision of director and star Warren Beatty, and hoping to ape the success that Warner Bros had enjoyed the summer before with Batman. Yet whilst Dick Tracy hit, it didn’t hit too hard. The studio adjusted its-then blockbuster strategy accordingly, and it wouldn’t really be until it got to the likes of »

Not since Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito hit the road in Twins has their been a pairing like this! For the first time ever, comedy sensation Kevin Hart is taking on the role of the straight man to go toe-to-toe with the towering Dwayne Johnson in the new action comedy Central Intelligence.

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger returning for The Predator?

7 March 2016 10:38 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Please let this be so. According to reports, Arnold Schwarzenegger could be returning to the jungle to face on of his most famous opponents. The Arnold Fans grabbed a soundbite from the legendary movie star, where he mentioned that he is meeting up with Shane Black soon. Perhaps to talk about The Predator, which Black will write and direct as soon as he finishes up work on The Nice Guys.

Here’s what Schwarzenegger had to say:

I haven’t talked with him (Shane Black) yet, but I’m going to meet with him for lunch sometime soon. Just as soon as I’m finished with this (Arnold’s Sports Festival) and “The Apprentice” and all this stuff. But I will get together with him. If there is any news, we’ll of course let you know right away. There’s also a meeting coming up soon about Conan, about the project moving forward. »

How Arnold Schwarzenegger's Twins 2, Or Triplets, Wants To Use Eddie Murphy

27 January 2016 10:44 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Some sequels are too awesome to happen in a timely manner, and the folks behind Triplets are certainly hoping this statement holds true for their purposes. The time between Twins and its recently active sequel may prove to have been beneficial to the film's plot, as Eddie Murphy's potential role looks to use that gap as a catalyst for more laughs.  During a special black tie event overseas, Schwarzenegger gave some updates on the long developing Triplets, and how Murphy would fit into the project. Fan site The Arnold Fans picked up on the following information pertaining to how Murphy's hypothetical third brother will come into play during the course of Triplets' first act. Arnold's description was as follows:  The idea was to have Danny Devito, myself with Eddie Murphy, be all of a sudden, the other twin - the triplet that we find. It comes out »

Creature From The Black Lagoon: the unmade Carpenter film

Universal's classic monster movie Creature From The Black Lagoon was almost remade by John Carpenter in the 1990s. So what happened?

It's one of the great suspense scenes in 50s genre cinema: a woman swims in the clear cool water of an Amazonian lagoon, blissfully unaware of the grotesque creature emerging from the depths beneath her. The score builds to a crescendo as the monster closes in, reaching out with a clawed, webbed hand...

Director Jack Arnold directed some of the best American sci-fi movies of the post-wwii era, and Creature From The Black Lagoon is perhaps his most famous. About a team of scientists investigating the fossilised remains of a strange man-fish hybrid - and discovering the thing still very much alive in the depths of the Amazon - the movie was a sizeable hit for Universal when it came out in early 1954.
