”Contract to Kill’ Trailer: Steven Seagal Is Still Trying That Action Hero Thing

6 November 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

One of the best film books I’ve ever read is Vern’s Seagalogy, which takes an astonishing and in-depth look at the films of actor/martial artist/musician/energy drink impresario/Vladamir Putin stooge Steven Seagal. Although Seagal has only directed one film (1994’s fascinating trainwreck On Deadly Ground), the book argues that his personal perspective, life philosophies, and beliefs run […]

Films people agreed to make to get their dream projects made

From Demolition Man and James Bond through to Speed 2 and Steven Seagal: the movies filmmakers took on to get other projects made.

One for the studio, one for yourself? That’s sometimes been the case when it comes to making movies, and we suspect – under the surface – it happens more than we’re ever told. However, every now and then, it becomes clear that someone has signed up for a movie, with getting the film they really, really want to make as the hidden reason. Such as in these cases…

Nigel Hawthorne: Demolition Man

The late, great Nigel Hawthorne wasn't much of a fan of the much-liked Sylvester Stallone-Wesley Snipes showdown, Demolition Man. In his autobiography Straight Face, Hawthorne called the experience of making the film "miserable", and wasn't impressed with the time lost on set waiting around for Stallone and Snipes.

Steven Seagal Plans Production Venture in Thailand

24 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

1990s action film star, Steven Seagal (“Under Seige,” “On Deadly Ground”) has unveiled plans to launch a production company in Thailand and produce at least two movies in the country.

Seagal last week visited the parliament building in Bangkok and held meetings with members of the National Reform Steering Assembly. The Nrsa is an advisory body reporting to the National Council for Peace and Order, the official name for the military government that seized power in 2014.

Seagal did not provide details of the company or the planned movies, though hinted that they would each use different locations and feature Thailand’s ‘muay thai’ form of martial arts.

Alongkorn Ponlaboot, Nrsa VP, said that the venture could boost the country’s creative economy, notably its film industry, economy and tourism, all of which were in line with the Nrsa’s reform plans.

Seagal stressed his veneration of Thailand’s King Bhumibol and his own Buddhist beliefs. »

Celebrating the B-movie performances of Michael Caine

From killer bees to Steven Seagal, Michael Caine's seen it all. We celebrate five hilarious performances in five very bad B-movies...

"If there is one thing worse than being offered bad scripts it's being offered none at all," Michael Caine once noted - an admission that might explain some of the roles he's taken on over his long and often wonderful career.

Michael Caine may have attained national treasure status now, but from the late 70s to the middle of the 90s, classic roles like Dr Frank Bryant in Educating Rita and Scrooge The Muppet Christmas Carol were interspersed with some - shall we say - less acclaimed movies. Yet even when the production values were awful, the script stank and the films flopped, Michael Caine's performances often remained fascinating. This isn't to say he was necessarily putting his heart and soul into them - »

Channing Dungey Named ABC Entertainment President, Replacing Paul Lee

17 February 2016 11:20 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Channing Dungey, executive VP of drama at ABC, has been named entertainment president of ABC, replacing Paul Lee, who was ousted in a power struggle with Ben Sherwood, president of Disney/ABC Television. She’s the first African-American person to head programming at a major broadcast network. Dungey will now report directly to Sherwood.

“Channing is a gifted leader and a proven magnet for top creative talent, with an impressive record of developing compelling, breakthrough programming that resonates with viewers,” said Sherwood. “We thank Paul for his many accomplishments at ABC and his devotion to the ABC brand, and we wish him continued success in the future.”

Dungey, who’s been with the network since 2009 (and its affiliated studio since 2004), is credited with developing many of the Alphabet’s successful dramas, including “Scandal,” “Quantico,” “Marvel’s Agents of Shield,” “How to Get Away With Murder” and “American Crime.”

12 Guilty Pleasure Action Movies You Need To See

19 January 2016 2:48 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar

Back in the day an audience’s appetite for action was sated by Glenn Ford on a horse, a sword and sandals epic, or a movie about how America won WWII for the Allies. But all of that changed when Hollywood discovered the blockbuster.

As the movies became bigger, plots got smaller and expectations had to be reduced in order sit through them. Movies like Tango & Cash or Hudson Hawk might’ve been big, but they weren’t particularly clever, and didn’t offer much in the way of thrills. Last Action Hero, hyped by Arnold Schwarzenegger as “big, gigantic, monstrous”, was basically a bad joke made at the expense of the films that had made him a star. Van Damme in Sudden Death? Steven Seagal’s On Deadly Ground? Horrendous. All of them.

But somewhere between the lows of Seagal’s oeuvre and the highs of Die Hard »
