Action Movies You Need To See Before You Die, According to The Makers of 'John Wick: Chapter 2'

14 February 2017 9:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Nobody knows action movies better than the minds behind John Wick: Chapter 2, director Chad Stahelski and stunt coordinator J.J. Perry. Both have been in the business for decades, though most people probably don't know their names. They started as stunt performers, doubling for the stars of movies like Blade, Point Break, Mortal Kombat, The Matrix, and 300. They both have also been the stunt coordinators and/or second unit directors for action in movies like Captain America: Civil War, The Hunger Games, Warrior, The Tournament, and even the upcoming The Fate of the Furious. Basically, Stahelski and Perry really, really, really know their stuff. So when we asked them for a simple list of their top five action movies they thought people should see before they die, they...

‘Wheeler’ Exclusive Clip: Stephen Dorff Takes on Nashville Disguised as an Aspiring Musician

31 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The new docudrama “Wheeler” follows an aspiring musician from Kaufman, Texas who travels to Nashville with dreams of becoming an outlaw country music star. Here’s the catch: Wheeler isn’t a real person, but rather actor Stephen Dorff under heavy prosthetic make up who successfully infiltrated the Music City to embark on the authentic singer-songwriter journey. In the film, the Wheeler character converses with real people in real locations and performs every musical number live, eventually interacting with real musicians like Travis Meadows, Audrey Spillman and the legendary Kris Kristofferson, Wheeler’s hero. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast Green Lantern Corps w/ A Special Guest!

20 January 2017 11:48 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties. 

Previous Entries:Casting The BatmanAssigning Directors For Man of Steel 2, The Flash, and Captain MarvelPitching What The Next Marvel/Netflix Collaborations Should BeCasting and Pitching Shazam!

This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.

Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »

Phenomenal Team To Start Work On Green Lantern Corps Film & My John Stewart Picks

12 January 2017 1:39 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

A new script is in development from DC and Warner Brothers for the feature film Green Lantern Corps. We know that the recent Green Lantern movie, starring Ryan Reynolds, failed miserably. But, this time around we may have the creative talent to at least create a good script. The upcoming film is being written by David Goyer (all Christopher Nolan Batman movies, Jumper, Blade, Man of Steel, and he is working on TV shows The Sandman and Krypton) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots, Contract Killers -- side note he was born in my home town and we are two years apart). Goyer is also producing alongside Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, and I think we all hope that Johns will usher in a new age of legit DC films.

The new focus of this movie will center around both Hal Jordan and John Stewart (hell yes), and has been described as »

David S. Goyer will write and produce Green Lantern Corps, Hal Jordan and John Stewart confirmed

12 January 2017 10:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems David S. Goyer will be making a return to Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe as the studio has tapped him to write and produce the Green Lantern Corps film alongside Justin Rhodes. Per Deadline, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg will executive produce the film that is described as ‘Lethal Weapon in space’, focusing on John Stewart’s training under Hal Jordan.

Very little has been heard of Green Lantern Corps since it was announced in WB’s slate of DC films in October 2014, but one question which many wondered was whether they would focus on Hal Jordan, who was the central Green Lantern played by Ryan Reynolds in Martin Campbell’s 2011 Green Lantern, or shift to one of the other Earth-based Green Lanterns, such as John Stewart or Kyle Rayner. The film will apparently focus on John Stewart, a former Marine sniper, becoming a Green Lantern, putting emphasis »

David Goyer Set to Write Green Lantern Corps Movie

12 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Dceu will not be held down by negativity and criticism. They are moving forward with their Green Lantern Corps, and it looks like we have found a writer or two.

Critical response from the Dceu has not been overwhelmingly positive. But that hasn't stopped DC from pursuing the guardians of the universe. With Justice League and Wonder Woman headed to the big screen this year, WB/DC is hard at work on their production of the Green Lantern Corps film.

In an exclusive at Deadline, it is being reported that David Goyer, along with Justin Rhodes, will be penning the script. Goyer has put together some impressive superhero scripts including the Blade trilogy, helping Christopher Nolan on his Batman trilogy, as well as Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman.

The story looks to be reminiscent of Lethal Weapon, but in space. Which I think we can all get on board with. »

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Decide Which Marvel Properties Need Netflix Shows!

6 January 2017 8:32 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Lrm's Fantasy Fridays, where myself and Jeremy Scully- two real-life best friends- pretend to be studio execs by calling some major shots. In the past, we rounded out the cast of Ben Affleck's The Batman, we assigned directors for several major upcoming superhero flicks, and today we set our sights on Marvel and it's wonderful relationship with Netflix. 

See, say what you will about Marvel's exploits on the ABC network like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but their work on Netflix has been undeniably stellar. With shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, which are all leading up towards Iron Fist and a The Defenders crossover event, Marvel Studios has shown that they can make some amazing television with their partners over at Netflix. 

With that in mind, the two of us mused about what other Marvel properties should get the Netflix series treatment. »

The bizarro horror movies of Donnie Yen

1 January 2017 4:53 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Craig Lines Jan 4, 2017

He's currently starring in Star Wars: Rogue One, but there are some fascinating horrors to be found in Donnie Yen's back catalogue...

After his recent show-stealing turn in Rogue One, it felt like the right time to write a little about Donnie Yen, one of my favourite actors. From his incendiary breakthrough performance in Tiger Cage (1988) to the acclaimed Ip Man trilogy (2009 - 2016), Yen's body of work has earned him a reputation as one of the all-time greatest martial arts stars and action choreographers. His high-energy blend of fighting styles has been hugely influential on the genre both in the east and west, and his charismatic performances have kept him popular with fans for decades.

However, while his kung fu films have been written about extensively, there's not quite as much about his brief forays into my other favourite genre: horror. He's arguably been on »
