Icons Upon Icons featurette for The Expendables 3

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After dropping a batch of colourful Comic-Con posters earlier in the week, Lionsgate has now released a new featurette for The Expendables 3, which shows off the impressive roster of action icons set to feature in the threequel; watch it below…

In The Expendables 3, Barney, Christmas and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks, who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise »

Who Are The Top 20 Vampires in Books?

22 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Vampires have been and will always be a wonderful creature that runs through the pages of comic books, graphic novels and literary books, but these few stand out as some of the best of the lot. Of course choosing vampires in literature is always a daunting task, and as such, is entirely subjective.

1. Lestat from The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. “The Brat Prince” has helped form what many see as the template for how a vampire should be in modern day fiction. His boldness, enthusiasm, defiance and charm has made him the iconic vampire of the 20th and 21st century. You can begin to read his exploits in the first book of the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice in ‘Interview With A Vampire‘.

2. Carmilla from The Dark Blue by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Dark Souls II receives mammoth update ahead of Dlc

21 July 2014 10:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dark Souls II's first Dlc is due today, and a new patch has addressed a huge list of issues...

News

The first Dlc for Dark Souls II, Crown of the Sunken King, has probably landed by the time you read this, and accompanying it is a huge update that fixes and tweaks a massive range of features.

You can see the full list below (and it's some list), but highlights include a limit to the amount of souls a player can earn whilst fighting invaders, and the removal of healing abilities during any form of PvP, a common annoyance for those who follow Dark Souls' community created honour system of no healing during a fight.

A good portion of the update deals with balancing, making changes to weapons damage, armour effectiveness, and spells. Some items have been changed too, such as the very handy Gower's Ring of Protection, which has been weakened, »

New poster and World Cup TV spot for The Expendables 3

10 July 2014 1:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

What’s the World Cup and The Expendables 3 got in common? Well Sylvester Stallone did play in goal alongside World Cup winners Bobby Moore, Ossie Ardiles and Pele in Escape to Victory, and it seems that’s enough of a tenuous link for Lionsgate to tie in to the football tournament with a new World Cup TV spot for the upcoming action sequel, which we have for you below. But first, a new quad poster…

Pierce Brosnan wants to be one of The Expendables

30 June 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sylvester Stallone and his band of geriatric action stars have united on the big screen twice now as The Expendables. The storylines may be generic, and the action may be over the top, but it’s the star power behind the films that really draws in audiences.

Stallone has brought such iconic action film stars as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme into the fold, and is expanding that cast even more in this year’s The Expendables 3Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipes will be joining the fray this time around, in what is being marketed as the final film in the franchise.

Of course, if the film makes money there’s little chance the franchise will actually end. So, how do you go bigger once the likes of Rambo, »

What to Expect from The Expendables 3

27 June 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on what to expect from The Expendables 3

Two films into the Expendables franchise, fans eagerly await the arrival of the third instalment. Thus far we have come to expect certain things. Firstly of course, lots of stuff gets blown up. That’s a given considering the cast which is a group of 80’s and 90’s action Gods. Then there’s the referential humour, that in the second film in particular was almost non-stop. Did the first two films entertain? For many yes. Did they fully deliver on the promise? Not really. The balance has never quite been right. The scripts always felt a bit jumpy and in many cases some key cast members felt wasted (namely Mr Van Damme in number 2).

Now, expectation and the end result can often be two very different beasts. Many felt upon the first announcement of the original Expendables film that this »

Meet The Citizens As ‘Gotham’ Posters Arrive

26 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gotham is one of autumn’s most hotly anticipated television pilots. The series will tell the story of Jim Gordon as he makes his way through the police ranks. Being set in the fictional city of Gotham of course means that along the way we will encounter many characters, good and bad from the Batman universe.

Gordon is to be played by The Oc’s Ben McKenzie, with Blade actor Donal Logue onboard as his mentor. The newly orphaned Bruce Wayne is being played by David Mazouz, the boy who brilliantly portrayed the role of mute Jake in Touch alongside Kiefer Sutherland. Wayne will be looked after by everyone’s favourite Dog Soldier Sean Pertwee, with Jada Pinkett-Smith also joining the project as a brand new to the world role.

To help promote the Fox show, a series of posters have gone, see below:

Marvel Changes Movies Part 2: Building an Empire

25 June 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After over sixty years of ups and downs, Marvel was poised to begin building its film empire right at the start of the new millennium.  Blade had released in 1999 and showed that a Marvel character could be successful on screen for the first time, and Marvel Studios was licensing its characters to production companies after their comic book successes in the 90s.  At that point, no one knew what a huge success Marvel movies would be and few companies were willing to give a Marvel property the budget it needed to be done well.  No one would have believed that in a little over a decade, Marvel would be at the forefront of Hollywood.  Today we’ll look at the movies Marvel released from 2000 on and analyze what it took to build an empire.

Marvel Changes Movies Part 1: The Rise of Marvel

23 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Marvel began life as a small-time comic book publisher called Timely Publications and released their first comic book in October of 1939 featuring the Human Torch and Namor the Sub-Mariner.  For over sixty years, they dealt with a rollercoaster of popularity and public interest, at times reveling in great success with properties such as Spider-Man and at other times barely making it by.  In 1996, Marvel filed for bankruptcy when the industry slumped, but now, in 2014, Marvel is an absolute powerhouse and is leading not only the comics industry, but the film industry as well.  Today we’ll look at the history of Marvel and the events that led them to a point where they could become a movie-making behemoth.

Movies are changing, and Marvel is at the helm.  Join us for part 1 of a four part special event as we explore where Marvel came from, how they rose to silver screen prominence, »

Sylvester Stallone working on Rambo 5, Expendables spin-offs

23 June 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been in talks for some time now, but it looks like Rambo 5 is back on the cards, with Stallone working on a script that is said to be his “version of No Country For Old Men“.

This is a translation from German film site Film Futter, which claims:

“With ‘Rambo V‘ Sylvester Stallone returns in his iconic role. This time he goes up against a Mexican cartel. Stallone, who has also written the screenplay, describes the new Rambo as his version of ‘No Country for Old Men.’ Like the last film, ‘Rambo V‘ is produced by Avi Lerner (“The Expendables 1-3“)”

We last saw Stallone play the titular character in 2009′s Rambo which earned over $110 million worldwide.

In Expendables news, Film Divider claim that Stallone will take a back seat after The Expendables 3 but will work on and appear in its spin-offs The Expendebelles (a female »

The Flickering Myth writing staff give their thoughts on the trailer for The Expendables 3….

You can watch the trailer here.

Boom! Crash! Explosion!

That’s more or less what the trailer for The Expendables 3 involves. But for some more insightful thoughts, let’s look at what the Flickering Myth writing staff thought of the first full trailer for the third part of The Expendables trilogy…

Scott Davis: I enjoyed Expendables 2 more than the first, so I am looking forward to this one. It’s 80s action fan nirvana cranked up to 11 with Ford, Gibson, Snipes and Banderas involved. Can’t wait!

Ozzy Armstrong: Best blockbuster of 2014? Hells yeah. Loved both the first and second and this looks like another slice of fried gold. Genuinely can’t wait.

John Carpenter’s 'Vampires' (1998) Review

11 June 2014 12:17 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Vampires (1998)

Directed by: John Carpenter

Written by: John Steakley (novel), Don Jakoby

Cast: James Woods (Jack Crow), Daniel Baldwin (Anthony Montoya), Sheryl Lee (Katrina), Thomas Ian Griffith (Valek), Maximillian Schell (Cardinal Alba), Tim Guinee (Father Adam Guiteau)

Back in 1998, there were two vampire films in theatres, “Blade” and “John Carpenter’s Vampires”. They were eerily similar. Both had something to do with vampires going through an ancient rite to walk in the daylight, both had an anti-hero vampire hunter whose life had been ruined by bloodsuckers, both had a conspiracy that vampires really do exist, and both even had actor Tim Guinee in the cast. “Vampires” and “Blade” are huge favorites of mine. “Blade” planted the seed for the renaissance of Marvel films we are enjoying today, and well, like many other Carpenter films, “Vampires” enjoyed the patronage of horror and Carpenter fans alike during its theatrical run, »
