From The Press Release:
Cinema Epoch presents exclusive screenings of award-winning filmmaker Gregory Hatanaka’s Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance on Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10th, at the Laemmle Noho Theatre at 7:20pm. Hakanaka (Mad Cowgirl, Blue Dream) and the stars of the film will conduct a Q and A after the film. More screening dates to be announced soon.
The Martian is Ridley Scott's best film in nearly 15 years. Part science lesson, part Robinson Crusoe drama, this is exciting and engaging filmmaking that reminds you just how good the seminal sci-fi director can be with the right script and the right story.
Helping this Matt-Damon-left-on-Mars survival thriller is a who's who of acting, producing and writing talent. From producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes) to screenwriter Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods, Daredevil), there's no weak link.
The crew that accidentally leave Damon's biologist Mark Watney on the red planet - Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie - are good enough to warrant their own spin-off movie (though that would make absolutely no sense), while the Nasa bods back home are similarly strong, notably space programme head honcho Jeff Daniels, PR guru Kristen Wiig and Mars mission supervisor Chiwetel Ejiofor. »

The director looks likely to exit the film, which is in turmoil given Relativity Media’s recent bankruptcy and backroom chaos, as well as the recent departure of second lead performer Jack Huston (The Longest Ride).
The Crow has been a constantly beleaguered project at Relativity and producer Edward R. Pressman has now filed a legal objection to the film being included in the studio’s list of assets ahead of a potential sale.
Pressman’s objection focuses on the fact that the rights for The Crow revert back to him if principal photography on the »

The Wrap reports that this week Pressman filed an objection to the inclusion of the project among Relativity's assets as it prepares for a sale.
Pressman claims that he is: "in danger of losing the services of the director of the picture... who is widely regarded as a key creative element. Thus, the production of the picture is imploding even as the time to make the picture is running out under the Crow contract."
Relativity has apparently invested over $7 million in the project so far, and the rights revert back to Pressman if filming does not start within the next eighteen months. Pressman made the filing because he wants to guarantee that whomever ends up with the franchise will finance »

What's the record for the most film directors quitting a prospective project? While there's no concrete answer available, we'd love to know the ballpark figure, as The Crow reboot seems like it's making a case for the title. The remake looks like it's about to lose its fourth director, as well as any chance of being made under the Relativity banner. The Wrap ran the scoop that director Corin Hardy is looking like he might be leaving the long-suffering remake of the 1994 indie hit, all because of the troubles studio Relativity is going through. As a result of Hardy's possible departure from the project, producer Edward R. Pressman . a producer of the original film version of The Crow - is filing for the rights to revert to his hands a little sooner. Considering the circumstances of Relativity's bankruptcy proceedings, he could very well get his way. The agreement that grants »
Things just keep on getting worse for Relativity’s remake of The Crow. After losing both Luke Evans and Jack Huston, the studio’s bankruptcy threw the movie into further chaos, but they’re still attempting to forge ahead with the project despite the fact that many of those working on it behind the scenes have also now left.
The latest issue is the possible departure of of director Corin Hardy. With Relativity preparing for the sale of the company, The Crow is obviously among the projects which will be shopped around, but producer Edward R. Pressman has filed an objection about them including this movie as one of their assets. That’s despite the fact that they’ve so far invested over $7 million in it and hold the rights to not only a remake, but also sequels and prequels if they so choose.
It basically comes down to the »

Here we go again! After a number of set backs too numerous to recount here, The Crow is about to hit another wall. This remake of the Alex Proyas comic book adaptation from 1994 has been in development forever, and has gone through quite a few directors and leading men. Now, The Wrap reports that director Corin Hardy is getting ready to fly the coop.
Producer Edward R. Pressman has filed an objection to the inclusion of The Crow in Relativity Media's assets as it prepares for a sale following its declaration of bankruptcy. Thus far, Relativity Media claims to have sunk over $7 million into the fledgling project since at least 2010. This includes $2.5 million to exercise the options to acquire and maintain the franchise rights, which includes sequel, prequels and remakes. These rights are set to revert back to Edward R. Pressman if principle photography hasn't started within three years »
“The Crow” director Corin Hardy is in danger of flying the coop as a result of the Relativity Media bankruptcy, according to producer Edward R. Pressman, who on Tuesday filed an objection to the inclusion of the project among the studio’s assets as it prepares for a sale. Relativity has invested “in excess of $7 million” in “The Crow” remake, including $2.5 million to exercise the options to acquire and maintain the property’s sequel, prequel and remake rights, according to the filing. Those rights revert back to Pressman if principal photography does not start within three years from when the. »

The Edward R. Pressman Film Corp. is vigorously objecting to the assignment of The Crow inside the Relativity bankruptcy, saying that “adequate assurance of future performance” has not been demonstrated by the Stalking Horse bidder. Claiming a lack of confidence in the process, the Pressman company says that the contract is at “a critical juncture and will suffer material and irreparable harm if the financing necessary to fund the production of the film is delayed.” This… »
Blazing a trail in 1995, Hackers tackled web culture on screen before the internet really took off. The cyber-thriller helped kick-start the career of a major Hollywood A-lister and swiftly became a cult classic thanks to its Hacker Manifesto.
As Hackers celebrates its 20th birthday today (September 15), here's what happened to the six stars who made up the cyber-punk crew.
Hackers handle: Acid Burn
In 1995, Jolie was a fast-rising 20-year-old actress with Cyborg 2 and some big music videos (including Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz and The Lemonheads) on her CV. New York Times critic Janet Maslin was non too plussed about Jolie's performance, saying of her character: "Kate stands out. That's because she scowls even more sourly than [her co-stars] and is that rare female hacker who sits intently at her keyboard in a see-through top."
Now, the 40-year-old is an Oscar-winning superstar with humanitarian work spanning more than a decade and »
One of the more surprising and lesser-known facts about Sam Mendes’ second film, Road to Perdition, is that it’s actually adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins. The plot follows Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks), an Irish mob enforcer as he goes on the run with his son Michael Jr. after Jr. witnesses a murder and their family is killed in an effort to cover up any witnesses. There’s many great things in this film that standout, such as Jude Law’s creepy performance as assassin Harlen Maguire, one of Paul Newman’s final and finest performances as mob boss John Rooney, and Hollywood got an early look at the talent of Daniel Craig as the unstable Connor Rooney. However, it’s the climax that remains the most memorable thing in it, featuring some of the most iconic work from »
The phrase “development hell” is tossed around a lot these days, but few films know the meaning of it better than the long-mooted reboot of The Crow. The project, which has been percolating under various creative gazes for almost a decade now, and has seen several high-profile actors come and go (Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper and Luke Evans were all at one time attached), hit a new stumbling block with the disintegration of its financier Relativity.
This still hasn’t dissuaded the character’s original creator James O’Barr though, who feels the reboot is still healthy.
Talking as part of a panel at the Twin Tiers Comic-Con in New York, O’Barr had this to say:
“It’s still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like »

Despite its apparent death though, the franchise's creator James O'Barr says the project is still very much alive. Speaking at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in New York State last weekend, O'Barr told ComicBook.com:
"It's still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they're in financial trouble. So the producers are just going to take it to another studio if Relativity can't get backing again. It's going to happen."
O'Barr has reportedly been in touch with Pressman Films who've advised that the property should be able »

The recent bankruptcy of Relativity Media appeared to have taken with it a few projects, not least the long-mooted reboot of The Crow. The movie was in the early stages of pre-production, with sets being built and director Corin Hardy in place, when Relativity finally collapsed. And that, not for the first time, seemed to be that for the project.
However, according to the creator of the comic book, James O'Barr, The Crow is still heading back to the movies. Chatting at Twin Tiers Comic Con in New York, he said that "it's still very much a live property".
O'Barr then elaborated further. "The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad »
Fans of The Crow desperately awaiting the reboot haven't had the best of luck over the past few years. Earlier this month, the project's studio home, Relativity Media, filed for bankruptcy, stalling it yet again, despite reports that the studio still planned on starting production this fall. James O'Barr, who created the comic book the original movie and the reboot is based on, revealed at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, NY last weekend that the movie will still happen, once they find a new studio. Here's what he had to say at the Twin Tiers panel, hosted by ComicBook.com.
"It's still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they're in financial trouble. So the producers are just »
The collapse of Relativity Media has directly affected many titles, including Jane Got A Gun and Masterminds, but one could argue that The Crow reboot has been hit the worst. The film has been struggling for years and years through development, regularly losing directors and lead actors, and now it appears as though the floor has dropped out completely. But if you think this is enough to shut the project down completely, you may want to think again. The Crow creator James O'Barr took part in a panel as part of the Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, NY, and according to ComicBook.com he is saying that the reboot is still alive. Discussing the troubled project, O'Barr gave a bit of a backhanded slap to Relativity, saying, It.s still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it »
After Street Fighter laid the groundwork for the fighting game, Mortal Kombat hit the scene, setting a high-water mark for realistic digitized graphics and pushing boundaries with its high levels of bloody violence, including, most notably, its Fatalities. It sparked so much controversy for its depiction of extreme violence and gore that it led to the creation of the Esrb (the video game rating system). The release of Mortal Kombat for home consoles by Acclaim Entertainment was one of the largest video game launches of all time, with a $10 million marketing campaign that dubbed the date “Mortal Monday.” No surprise, then, that a game this controversial and popular would pique the interest of money-hungry Hollywood executives looking to cash in. Mortal Kombat the movie enjoyed a 3-week run at the top of the Us box office, earning over $122 million worldwide. In addition to toys, »
The Crow reboot has hit another snag. THR is reporting that pre-production has completely stalled, with an entire production crew said to have left the project. The blame, this time, lies with the studio, Relativity Media, which filed for bankruptcy on Thursday. This is only the latest in a long line of disasters for the reboot, leaving it perennially stuck in development hell for years. The project has so far endured a string of high profiling casting exists and a revolving door of directors. Its star, Jack Huston, only bowed out of the movie a few weeks ago - following on from Luke Evans' departure in January. Both actors were in line to play the lead role of 'Eric Draven' - a role made famous by Brandon Lee's iconic performance in the 1994 cult classic. The project finally looked like it was picking up steam earlier this year, with Jessica Brown Findlay, »
Here we go again! Just as production on the long-delayed Fletch Remake beings to heat up, The Crow beings to cool down. Way down. Even though things have been looking better for the reboot, it has been troubled ever since it was announced. So much so, some believe it is cursed, a thought that goes all the way back to the original 1994 The Crow, which saw star Brandon Lee shot and killed on set. Creator of the comic book James O'Barr claims that $20 million has already been spent trying to get this new iteration off the ground. And while claims were made that the production would still shoot in the fall, despite Relativity filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it seems that initial report was a little premature.
Wow! Have we seen some unexpected things at the cinema this year! Shocking movie scenes are the things of legend. When they happen, they can make the film a "must see" or a "must leave." Quite simply, they are the thing that oftentimes get us to fork over our hard earned loot. And other times, they have us closing our eyes, squirming in our chair, or reaching for that empty popcorn bag to use as a vomit catcher!
Despite how many times we see a shocking scene, we never grow tired of them. Sure, not every movie can be The Crying Game or The Sixth Sense, but many times we will settle for merely a 'good' shock simply because so few films have them. As any discerning movie watcher will tell you, a shocking moment in and of itself isn't enough to make a movie good. However, if it works »
