Cruise Classic: Minority Report

24 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Regular readers of the site will know that earlier this year we ran a series looking at the classic films of Keanu Reeves. This was to co-inside with the release of the fantastic John Wick; now we turn our attention to another big name from the nineties, Tom Cruise. Each week from now until the release of the highly anticipated fifth Mission Impossible film, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the films that we feel are his classics. This week’s pick is Minority Report.

Minority Report takes place in 2054 where all crime is predicted and controlled by the PreCrime task force. Trouble brews when one of their best agents, Anderton, finds his name on this list and gets hunted down before he can commit the pre-destined murder.

The film directed by Steven Spielberg is based on novel ‘The Minority Report’ by Philip K Dick. »

Fantasia 2015 Review: 25 Years On, The Reflecting Skin Remains A Wonder

22 July 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Seeing The Reflecting Skin for the first time, the 1990 film by Philip Ridley, starring Viggo Mortensen and Lindsay Duncan, one can't help but wonder how the hell the thing ever got made. I'd previously never even heard of the flick, surely a testament to my lack of knowledge about late century UK/Canadian co-productions. The film would have come out when I was in High School, but it's hard to see that in the year of Home Alone, Dances With Wolves and Total Recall this being the work I'd seek out. Yet with that context the films it most closely echoes are those from only a few years earlier - the sundrenched fields of Days of Heaven providing a more rural backdrop for the...

Eisenberg and Stewart are stoned and deadly in new 'American Ultra' trailer

21 July 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Total Recall" is one of those movies that is beloved by a pretty wide swath of fandom, but it's never been a favorite of mine. Part of the problem is that while I love "Robocop," I don't think every single piece of material works with that tone. Paul Verhoeven loves to subvert the material he works with, and while "Robocop" was clearly written with tongue in cheek, the early drafts of "Recall" were all played pretty straight. There was a scene in one of those drafts that I loved dearly, right as Quaid is forced to confront an alley full of men. He's got no idea what to do, and then his body snaps in and he kills everyone, bare-handed, only to end up shaken and freaked out by what he just did. I loved the idea of Richard Dreyfuss playing that scene because we'd be just as surprised by »

The Flash season 2: two new villains confirmed

17 July 2015 12:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

New villains alert! Michael Ironside will play Captain Cold's dad, and Adam Copeland will play Atom Smasher in The Flash season 2...

The Flash thrives on its villains. Almost every week there's a new metahuman turning up to cause chaos for Barry Allen and the S.T.A.R. Labs team. With another superhero joining the show, then, it makes sense that we'd need some more bad guys, too. This week, two new baddies have joined The Flash's rogues' gallery.

First up, Michael Ironside of Top Gun, Starship Troopers and Total Recall has joined the show. He'll play Lewis Snart, career criminal and abusive father to Captain Cold and Golden Glider. THR got the scoop, and they described him as a "a cold-blooded, ruthless career criminal" who, "returns to Central City [from prison] with a plan that will endanger both of his children."

Also signing up is former WWE star Adam Copeland. »

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

8 Reasons Why 'Ghost' Forever Changed Summer Blockbusters

13 July 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It didn’t seem to have a ghost of a chance of becoming a hit. Instead, “Ghost” would forever redefine what constitutes a summer blockbuster. The romantic fantasy about Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze, in the role that would make him a bona fide sensation), a murdered Manhattan banker in spirit form who relies on con-artist psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg, feisty and funny) to help him save endangered sweetheart Molly (Demi Moore, who turns crying on cue into an Olympic sport), didn’t just wipe out such surefire winners as “Total Recall,” “Die Hard 2” and “Back to the Future III.” The supernatural weeper also would go on to claim the box-office crown as the top-grossing picture of 1990, with a worldwide gross of $505.7 million. This Hollywood anomaly also cashed in big time during awards season. The rare summer-release contender from a major studio that didn’t qualify as either sci-fi (“Star Wars, »

Luc Besson talks ‘Valerian’ plans

10 July 2015 1:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The French filmmaker and EuropaCorp head flew into Comic-Con on Thursday for a rare and deeply personal presentation that featured concept art from his upcoming $180m space opera.

“It’s the adventure of my life,” the director told an intimate gathering of select press as he offered sparse details on Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, due to start production in January 2016 and open in the Us as a PG-13 film via Red (Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution) in July 2017.

The project, which was one of the hottest pre-sales titles in Cannes, is adapted from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézieres’ bestselling French comic book series that launched in 1967.

“It’s Mr & Mrs Smith in space,” said the director, a life-long fan who said he was 10 when he first bought the comics. “They’re super-agents who travel through time and space. They work for the Human Federation.”

Film Review: ‘Self/less’

4 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A brand new you that just might be the old someone else is the quandary at the center of “Self/less,” an initially intriguing parable about man’s lust for immortality that quickly devolves into a substandard shoot-’em-up designed to rebrand star Ryan Reynolds as a brawny action hero in the Jason Statham mold. But even the resourceful, likable Reynolds is at a loss to elevate this rather dreary piece of would-be escapism, which calls out for the wry, pulpy touch of a John Carpenter (or his acolyte David Twohy) and instead gets the strained self-seriousness of director Tarsem Singh. July 10 release from Universal/Focus’ relaunched genre label Gramercy Pictures will have its work cut out for it against the big guns of summer.

Written by Spanish brothers Alex and David Pastor (whose little-seen 2009 “Carriers” was one of the better zombie/virus thrillers of recent vintage), “Self/less” cribs »

Schwarzenegger, Hamilton & More -- See Your Favorite "Terminator" Stars Then and Now!

3 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

He's back. With the next "Terminator" flick landing in theaters on July 1st with "Terminator Genisys," we're taking a trip down memory lane to find out what your favorite stars from the action franchise have been up to since the original movie.  Arnold Schwarzenegger won the world over when he hit the big screen in "Terminator" back in 1984. The flick focused on a cyborg who was sent to earth from the future to kill a waitress whose unborn child will one day become the leader of humanity against the machines. Arnold went on to steal the screen in action flicks like "Predator" to "Total Recall" after, in addition to appearing in all four "Terminator" films. In 2003, Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California, and again in 2006. He faced controversy in 2011 when reports surfaced that he had an extramarital affair with his house keeper which led to his divorce from longtime wife Maria Shriver. »

Terminator Genisys Is Overcomplex and Uninspired, But the Franchise Will Be Back

2 July 2015 5:46 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The nasty reviews for the fifth Terminator film, Terminator Genisys, are well earned — but as lousy as the movie is, I must speak up for its makers’ valiant attempt to make something old look new and also old ... and new. It’s a vexing problem for a system that relies on sequels, “franchises,” “tentpoles,” etc. You see, studios haven’t had much luck remaking sci-fi blockbusters like Total Recall and RoboCop from scratch, but at the same time, they know it won’t work simply to exhume long-in-the-tooth original casts and try to squeeze juice from premises wrung dry. So they’ve pushed filmmakers to do something genuinely (if inadvertently) postmodern: invent “alternate timelines” that mix old and new — with winks to the millions of moviegoers who get the in-jokes. The current ultra-blah Star Trek cycle arrived in the form of a dialogue with the original, the characters’ destinies (and, »

A Back To The Future remake "can't happen" says Robert Zemeckis

30 June 2015 2:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fearful of a Back To The Future remake? "That can't happen until Bob and I are dead," says director Robert Zemeckis...

In an industry increasingly searching for low-risk profits, remakes and reboots have become a naggingly constant presence in modern Hollywood.

You only have to glance through our 2013 list of in-development remakes and reboots to see just how prevalent they've become - and these are all aside from the 142 movie sequels that are currently in the works.

So far, the much-loved Back To The Future series has managed to avoid the fate of such films as RoboCop, Total Recall or Big Trouble In Little China, to name but a few remakes that have either been filmed or are currently in the planning stages.

For director Robert Zemeckis, who co-wrote Back To The Future and its sequels with Bob Gale, the series will remain unsullied - at least for as long »
