A Hollywood Screenwriter Experiences the Real Gaza War

3 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A version of this story first appeared in the Oct. 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Screenwriter Dan Gordon has written high-octane action thrillers for the big screen including The Hurricane (about boxer Rubin Carter), Wyatt Earp and Passenger 57, but those pale in comparison to the real-life experiences he has had over the past 40 years as a member of the Israeli Defense Forces serving in six different wars. Gordon, 67, a U.S.-Israeli dual citizen, is still a member of the Israeli army reserves. He returned to the Middle East earlier this year as

Dylan Sellers Out as Weinstein Company Production President

30 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dylan Sellers is stepping down as The Weinstein Company’s president of production, Variety has learned.

Details of Sellers’ exit have not been finalized.

The move comes less than two years after Sellers was tapped for the role of overseeing the creation of the indie label’s film slate.

The Weinstein Company is gearing up for awards season and betting on films such as “St. Vincent,” “The Imitation Game” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” to return it to the Oscar hunt. It’s been a rough summer for the company, which saw “Begin Again” and “The Giver” underperform, and “Sin City 2,” which it distributed but didn’t finance, flop.

Before joining the studio, Sellers produced such films as “Passenger 57,” “Footloose” and the “Agent Cody Banks” series. He was also a senior production executive at Warner Brothers’ Unique Features, where he oversaw the company’s West Coast production and development arms. »

Fantastic Fest Review: Salma Hayek Does Her Best John McClane In Actioner 'Everly'

20 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the quarter century since "Die Hard" was first unleashed on moviegoers worldwide, there have been countless iterations of the same formula, to the point that, for a while at least, it became a whole action movie subgenre. Projects would be pitched (and subsequently produced) with sentences describing the movie as "Die Hard" on a… There's been "Die Hard" on a plane ("Executive Decision," "Passenger 57"), "Die Hard" in a tunnel ("Daylight") "Die Hard" on a bus ("Speed") and "Die Hard" in the White House ("White House Down"). The fact that no one's attempted a "Die Hard" with a female heroine seems like some kind of cosmic impossibility, but it's never happened. Until now. With "Everly," the basic "Die Hard" formula is rehashed with a female lead in mind, and the results are surprisingly spectacular. The shtick still works 26 years later. When »

A Look Back At: Full Eclipse (1993)!!

6 August 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The ’90s was an interesting decade to say the least. Growing up, nothing was better to me, than sitting down to watch either a horror film or one of my favorite HBO programs, whether it be Tales From The Crypt or The Kids In The Hall, most of my nights were spent eating McDonald’s and being stuck to the TV. Once in a great while, HBO would premiere films exclusively on their channel, and sometimes those films would be just what I was looking for. Whether it be 1991′s Lovecraftian, Phillip Marlow meets Black Magic type of film Cast A Deadly Spell, or the subject of this A Look Back At article, the 1993 Werewolf Cop film Full Eclipse, HBO really did a hell of a job offering some fun programming.

Six of the Best: Wesley Snipes

2 May 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Wesley Snipes will be hitting our scenes this summer in action sequel The Expendables 3. And if you are one of many people who’ve been wondering “where the hell has this guy been?” well the answer is: serving a three-year sentence for tax evasion. In fact, it was Snipes’ legal problems that forced him to turn down the role of Hale Caesar in the first Expendables film, a character that had been conceived and written especially for him. Snipes was not allowed to leave the United States without the court’s approval, and the role eventually went to Terry Crews.

Just before disappearing into jail in 2010, Snipes made Gallowwalkers, about a cursed gunslinger whose shooting victims turn into zombies; its poster tagline ‘Live by the gun. Die by the gun. Come back for more’ tells you all you need to know.

It is easy to write-off (pun intended) Snipes »

Tsr Blog: ‘Non-Stop’ and Why It’s Safe for Movie Planes to Crash Again

7 March 2014 11:43 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Through films like Flightplan, Soul Plane, and White House Down, it has taken over a decade for Hollywood to arrive at Non-Stop.

Showing the vitality of Liam Neeson carrying a gun and a broken heart, Non-Stop recently gave the new action hero one of his biggest box office weekends so far. Involving an air marshal using a particular set of skills to hunt and kill someone threatening his plane (to paraphrase Taken), the film may seem like a generic Neeson actioner. But while his character might be a composite of previous roles, the anxiety he tackles within this film is fresh. Considering its box office success (and my mother’s intense experience in watching the movie), Non-Stop works efficiently as a thriller in 2014 because it provides viewers with imagery of in-flight chaos not seen since before 9/11. It is also the indication of a natural progression for how Hollywood films are »

Cool Videos Exclusive: Top Ten Movie Characters You Want on a Plane (Video)

28 February 2014 2:06 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Neeson Season kicks off today with the release of Non-stop, the lastest high-altitude thriller that joins the ranks of previous genre flicks like Passenger 57, Executive Decision, Turbulence, and more. To celebrate, we've whipped together a listing of the folks you'd most want to have aboard your flight when midair violence threatens your in-flight movie and beverage service. We can't all be heroes, so it's important to remember who we can turn to when the shit hits the engine and this roster »

Review: Non-Stop

27 February 2014 6:23 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Non-Stop is the latest vehicle for Liam Neeson's renaissance as an action hero. Well the vehicle is actually a trans-Atlantic plane in the process of being hijacked. But don’t worry, undercover air Marshall Bill Marks is on-board and he’s played by Neeson. So everything will be fine right? Well, Bill Marks is a broken man put together with spit and wishes. He manages to straddle so many worn tropes - ex-cop, alcoholic, divorced - that it’s not so much noir as, oh noir'again mate.

But this being Neeson he makes the role work better than it deserves. Even when all his plans fail, all his ideas and fighting worthless, we have faith he'll come through, because it is Liam Neeson. Though it may be a foolish hope as we witness Marks throwing back whiskey minutes before boarding. Maybe they should have called this ‘Shakes on a »

Non-Stop review: Liam Neeson claims his crown as B-movie king | Tom Shone

26 February 2014 2:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This airplane thriller never threatens to make sense as Neeson carries it to a denouement worthy of a murderous Miss Marple

"Nervous flyer?" asks Julianne Moore after she notices Liam Neeson fiddling nervously before take off. "It never quite goes away," Neeson replies. You don't know the half of it, lady.

The last flight Neeson was on crash-landed in the Alaskan tundra, where his fellow passengers were picked off, one by one, by a pack of ravenous grey wolves. The year before that, in Unknown, Neeson landed at Berlin Tagel Airport for a biotechnology summit only to have someone steal his wife, his identity and all respect for German traffic codes. And before that we had Taken, in which Neeson had his daughter kidnapped at Charles de Gaulle Airport by Albanian slave traffickers. Neeson and foreigners don't mix. Neeson and airports don't mix. But Neeson and foreign airports is really asking for trouble. »

Flight Risks: 10 Great Action Scenes Set on a Plane

21 February 2014 3:02 PM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

If bouncing around in a tin cylinder at 35,000 feet isn't suspenseful enough, how about adding flying fists and/or bullets to the mix? As Liam Neeson takes his Taken skills to the skies in this Friday’s thriller Non-Stop, we take a look at 10 of the best action scenes set in and around moving aircraft. Air Force One President Harrison Ford trades punches, kicks and bullets with several Russian terrorists at various altitudes in this 1997 hit. For our money, the best fight involves a hapless thug getting duped by the prez with the help of a chair. (“Get off my plane!” is a close second.)

The Legacy of Nolan’s Batman Trilogy: Good or Bad?

8 February 2014 7:48 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is acknowledged as a triumph of the action film/comic book genres, did the series ultimately do as much harm as good to the entertainment industry? As well done as they films were, is the vast shadow from the Nolan/Bale trilogy doing damage to the film/TV medium?

When something in the entertainment industry is popular and successful, it’s inevitable that it will have an influence on future films. For instance, the popularity of Die Hard began the ‘one-man-in-a-limited-area-battling-a-group-of-terrorists’ trend. (Under Siege/Under Siege 2, Air Force One, Speed, Toy Soldiers, Cliffhanger, Sudden Death, the Rock, Passenger 57, Con Air) Some of these movies are good, and some aren’t, but they are all examples of how Hollywood sees imitation as the sincerest form of profit.

The Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman trilogy was immensely popular, highly profitable and critically well received. Therefore, »

‘Non-Stop’ TV Spots Do Actually Stop

5 February 2014 10:38 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Non-stop is one of those films where the title seems to convey some suggestive messages to film critics. The poster captions of “Delivers Non-stop thrills,” almost write themselves. How long has it been since we’ve had a nice old fashioned plane set action movie? Growing up on the likes of Executive Decision, Passenger 57, and Con Air, means I’m very interested to see what Liam Neeson delivers in this suspense thriller in which a passenger is killed every 20 minutes.

These TV Spots give away a bit too much of the plot if you ask me, as I was happy with the very simple set-up. Still, it’s inbound to be a decent thrill ride that will hopefully be a window seat rather than the one stuck between two smelly obese people who fall asleep on your shoulders and dribble.

Non-stop is release on 28th February. It stars Liam Neeson, »

‘Penthouse North’ DVD Review

31 January 2014 9:48 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michelle Monaghan, Andrew W. WalkerMichael Keaton, Barry Sloane, Trevor Hayes, Tilo Horn | Written by David Loughery | Directed by Joseph Ruben

Written by David Loughery (Lakeview Terrace, Passenger 57) and directed by Joseph Ruben (Sleeping With The Enemy, The Forgotten), Penthouse North is a thriller, and an old school one at that, mixing elements of mystery and tense, edge-of-your-seat atmosphere to create a tale of suspense that keeps you entertained for its ninety minute runtime.

The story revolves around Sarah (Monaghan) who lives in a penthouse apartment with her boyfriend, Ryan (Walker), she is a former military photo-journalist who lost her sight while on assignment in Afghanistan, and her relationship with Ryan is about to be explored as he is not all that he seemed.

The premise is intriguing and had the potential to be something dark and culturally relevant, but stumbles at times and finds itself becoming a »
