McTiernan Slams "Mad Max," Superhero Films

12 July 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the late 1980s to early 1990s, filmmaker John McTiernan unleashed a trio of films in a row that are still considered formative films of the Hollywood action genre - primal but smart blockbusters which changed how those kind of movies were made.

Those films were "Predator," "Die Hard" and "The Hunt For Red October". McTiernan has had a few success stories since then, most notably "Die Hard with a Vengeance" and his "The Thomas Crown Affair" remake, but otherwise has yet to be able to recapture that elusive spark - making headlines more for legal woes than anything in recent years.

Even so, McTiernan remains an Academy member with strong opinions and has unleashed those opinions in a new interview with Premiere (via The Playlist) where he offers both the superhero genre and George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" some harsh words. Though he says he likes the first "Mad Max, »

John McTiernan Dismisses ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ As A “Corporate Product,” Says Comic Book Movies Are Made By “Fascists”

12 July 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

John McTiernan was once the king of the Hollywood action blockbuster. The director earned a reputation for making some of the best big screen spectacles of his day, with “Predator,” “Die Hard,” “The Hunt For Red October,” and “Die Hard With A Vengeance” all to his name. However, he hit a major bump in the […]

"Predator" Restoration Gets A Trailer

4 July 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the quintessential films of the 1980s is without a doubt "Predator".

The first of John McTiernan's hat trick of action masterpieces, the subsequent two being "Die Hard" and "The Hunt for Red October," the more sci-fi bent "Predator" remains a brilliant macho men vs. monster tale that many have tried to imitate - but all have lacked its knack for suspense, its cleverly yet simple premise, its utterly believable sweaty jungle setting (just outside Puerto Vallarta in Mexico), and that wonderful score.

Unfortunately the home video releases for the film leave a lot to be desired. In particular it has been released on Blu-ray in two versions - the first came in 2008 and was encoded at a low enough bit rate and without any real work on the aged print which offers little better than the DVD. The second was issued n 2010 and is still the current version. »

It’s Showtime In The Trailer For John McTiernan’s Newly Restored ‘Predator’ Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger

4 July 2016 6:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Generally speaking, fancypants restorations tend to be the domain of arthouse faves or works by revered auteurs, not pictures from the guy who directed “Die Hard” and “The Hunt For Red October.” However, there’s always a few exceptions to the rule, and John McTiernan‘s “Predator” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of them.

John Krasinski cast as Jack Ryan

30 April 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last fall it was announced an unnamed Jack Ryan television series, based off the Tom Clancy novels, was in development over at Amazon Studios. Now comes news that The Office and 13 Hours star John Krasinski has been cast in the lead as CIA analyst Jack Ryan.

Not much is known about the Jack Ryan series, but it will reportedly feature the character in his prime at the CIA, using Clancy’s extensive novels as a backdrop. Considering many of the novels are set in the 1980s and 90s, the series will instead be modernized to take place during the current global and political climate.

Jack Ryan was first introduced in Clancy’s debut novel The Hunt for Red October in 1984. That book launched a book series, several films starring Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and most recently Chris Pine, and the Rainbow Six video game franchise, as well as other Clancy game franchises. »

The Office Star John Krasinski Is The New Jack Ryan

30 April 2016 6:27 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jim Halpert is your new Jack Ryan. Deadline is reporting that John Krasinski, former star of NBC's hit comedy The Office, has signed on to portray the latest incarnation of Jack Ryan. This news comes a few months after we originally received word that Paramount TV & Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes were developing a television series based on Tom Clancy's popular CIA hero for Amazon with a series commitment and the Lost duo of Carlton Cuse & Graham Roland attached as co-showrunners.  The potential series will be a more contemporary take on Jack Ryan, following him in his prime as a CIA analyst/operative and will only use the novels as source material. The project hasn't officially been greenlit just yet, but the addition of Krasinski certainly bodes well for the show's chances. Krasinski is the latest in a long line of actors to tackle the role of Ryan, following »

John Krasinski Is 'Jack Ryan' In New Amazon Series

29 April 2016 5:08 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last fall it was announced that Jack Ryan, the Tom Clancy created hero that has seen a steady decline from the heydey of "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear And Present Danger," to the the nadir of "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," was going to be revived. We all just told our Dads, moved on, and forgot about it, but indeed, it's still happening.

It might seem like an odd choice, but Michael Bay is among the series producers, and he cast the actor in his recent "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi," so there you go. Also shepherding the show is "Lost" pair Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland. Rather than focus on Jack Ryan as a newbie, »

John Krasinski Is The New TV Jack Ryan

29 April 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Office" and "13 Hours" star John Krasinski is set to play Jack Ryan, the popular CIA analyst and hero of Tom Clancy's novels, for a new TV series in the works at Amazon.

The streaming giant handed out a series commitment with the intention to go straight-to-series, but a green light hasn't been given just yet. The casting of Krasinski however will likely push it forward. "Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland are behind the project, along with Platinum Dunes and Skydance Media.

Five films have been made with the character including John McTiernan's cinematic classic "The Hunt for Red October," Phil Noyce's very well-regarded "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger," Phil Alden Robinson's respected "The Sum of All Fears" and Kenneth Branagh's disappointing "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit". Four actors have taken on the role including Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine. »

Eye in the Sky movie review: in the eyes of 21st-century warriors

15 April 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

As entertaining on an escapist level as it is irrefutably engaging on a level that is essential for citizens who are players in our political environment. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

This is warfare today. It’s a colonel in a bunker in outer London (surrounded by computers) and a general in an office building in Whitehall (surrounded by politicians) and a drone pilot in Las Vegas (flying a robot armed with missiles and also, more importantly, with cameras, from thousands of miles away) and a facial-recognition technician at a workstation in Pearl Harbor and an agent of the Kenyan military on the ground in Nairobi collaborating in an operation to capture most-wanted terrorists in a civilian suburban neighborhood in a country that neither the Us nor the UK is at war with. »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Cast and Director Unveil the Big Secret | Exclusive

8 March 2016 6:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

10 Cloverfield Lane has been shrouded in secrecy. Produced by Paramount and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, the details of the film have been carefully guarded. The full trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane was released just two months before it opens this Friday. Nothing specific about the plot has leaked; just that it is a sequel of sorts to that hit monster movie from 2008, Cloverfield.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Michelle, a young woman who wakes up after a car accident in a survival bunker. Disoriented and terrified, her captor or possibly savior, is Howard (John Goodman). He tells her that they have survived an apocalypse. Michelle's also surprised to find another occupant, Emit (John Gallagher Jr). That's all you really need to know before seeing the film. There are more than a few twists in 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Bale, Cooper Re-Team For "Hostiles"

18 February 2016 8:19 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Out of the Furnace" actor Christian Bale and director Scott Cooper are set to team for the western drama "Hostiles" which begins shooting this summer.

The story centers on a Native American-hating soldier, nearing retirement, who is given one last assignment: to escort an Indian chief back to his Montana reservation.

Along the way he comes across a young widow and fights back attacks by Comanche tribes - learning to respect the race he hates.

Donald Stewart ("The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games") penned the script which Cooper has since re-written. Jon Lesher and Ken Kao are producing.
