New cast photo for The Expendables 3

15 April 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of a flood of set visit reports tomorrow, Lionsgate and Millennium Films have debuted a new cast photo for the upcoming action sequel The Expendables 3, which features returning stars Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Jason Statham, Randy Couture and new cast addition Wesley Snipes (Blade) alongside director Patrick Hughes (Red Hill)….

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. »

Donal Logue Lands Role On Law & Order: Svu, Show Instantly 5000% Cooler

10 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

You know, at the very beginning I was a fan of Law & Order: Svu. It probably goes without saying that I’m not inclined to be a fan of anything after 40 or 50 seasons (or whatever this show is on), but beyond the general boredom of a show that has outlived its usefulness, Svu started going downhill after two seasons, and simply wasn’t the same show anymore.

Well, whatever, such is my humble anyway.

As if to specifically mess with me, the show is now forcing me to watch it again, as Donal Logue has been given a recurring role. Fresh off of three of the coolest shows, and roles, you’re going to run into (Copper, Vikings, and Sons of Anarchy), Logue will continue the role as acting commander of the Svu.

The show returns on the 30th, and the Grey’s Anatomy-esque fun continues as Mariska Hargitay‘s character… »

Watch: 35-Minute Screenwriting Lecture With 'The Dark Knight' & 'Man Of Steel' Writer David S. Goyer

9 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

David S. Goyer is the screenwriter of the “Blade” trilogy, Christopher Nolan's Batman films and now Zack Snyder's Superman/DC series, and you could make a decent case that he's therefore the single most important influence on the modern superhero movie, more even than the directors he has worked for, even if in the wider world he's barely famous enough to be mistaken for Stanley Tucci.Recently he's been talking up further plans for the DC universe and the way his work interacts with fan expectations, but a couple of weeks ago he also gave a more general talk at BAFTA about his career path and the screenwriting trade. Starting at the beginning with his (eventually successful) harassment of an agent when he was still in college, with one script to his name, then working through the slog of crappy Jean-Claude van Damme movies (“One day you'll write »

5 best vampires: From Edward Cullen to Dracula

7 April 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Soul or blood-sucking creatures have been a part of folklore for thousands of years, and the modern vampire myth grasped the imagination in the early 18th century and has never really left us since.

A striking retelling of the story came in 2004, with John Ajvide Lindqvist's stunning novel Let the Right One In - later adapted into Tomas Alfredson's 2008 Swedish film and Matt Reeves's 2010 English-language remake Let Me In.

The story of Eli and Oskar was also adapted into a stage play by Jack Thorne (The Fades, Skins, This Is England), so he seemed the perfect guy to give us a run-down of his top five vampires.

Da Vinci's Demons season 2 episode 3 review: The Voyage Of The Damned

6 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 6 Apr 2014 - 15:55

The Voyage Of The Damned is a solid instalment for Da Vinci's Demons, despite lacking in focus...

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 The Voyage Of The Damned

One of the little pleasures of Da Vinci's Demons is the way the show works Da Vinci's actual achievements into the show. From his invention of the Gatling-style machine gun to his testing of flying wings in the very early stages of the first season, when the show brings one of Da Vinci's mad inventions to the screen, it usually is one of the coolest aspects of the episode. During this episode, we get a prolonged genesis and creation of one of Leonardo's most interesting creations: the submarine.

After getting thrown off the boat he was hoping to abscond with after doing a pretty good Riario impersonation (complete with hipster hat and Renaissance sunglasses) and getting in a »

4 April 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Blade” star Wesley Snipes is back in action in the first trailer for “The Expendables 3.” The action consists of him wondering what the hell is happening, while new pals Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham have a good laugh.

The Ten Best Captain America Artists Part 2

1 April 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Drawing Captain America either in his own title or Avengers has been a right of passage for superhero artists since the 1960s. Even artists who have gone on to do very different things, like write and draw Superman’s modern origin (John Byrne) or create Blade the vampire hunter (Gene Colan) have had memorable takes on Cap’s adventures. However, some artists aren’t up for the task. For example, hot-shot X-Force artists and one of the founders of Image Comics Rob Liefeld was tasked with writing and drawing Captain America for Marvel’s Heroes Reborn event. This was the result. However, many artists over the past couple decades have brought new styles and techniques to Captain America’s appearances in various Marvel titles while showing how timeless this character is.

Ron Garney (Captain America in 1995-6, 1998; Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty in 1998; Ultimate Comics Captain America in 2011)

In a Nutshell: Gallowwalkers

31 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Sylvester Stallone seemed really excited to announce via Twitter that Wesley Snipes was to appear in his action sequel, The Expendables 3. He might want to reconsider that decision after watching this tiresome zombie-western. Not technically a comeback vehicle, most of Goth's woe-stern was filmed before Snipes' infamous standoff with the local tax man. Gallowwalkers is a lifeless Blade wannabe with undead gunmen, lizard-faced freaks and life-sucking dialogue. There are worse things out tonight than vampires. A supernatural western following Aman, the son of a nun cursed by God and haunted by those who died by his hand. Which begs the question, why bother killing them in the first place if they're only going to come back and haunt you? Aman's soul mate was raped by a gang of gutless gunslingers, she died nine months later giving birth to a bastard child. Aman couldn't deal with the fact that she was carrying somebody else's child, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 24th 2014

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Not much to speak of in the pre-amble this week except that From Dusk Till Dawn episode 2 on Netflix continued in fine form and presented an interesting and somewhat unique version of a vampire which was actually quite scary. If you have written this off because it sounds cheap and forced (admittedly on paper it does) I urge you to give it a watch, the dialogue alone is better than most TV shows, “Got your balls on?” is a great line I will repeat ad nauseam henceforth.

In other news Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has criticised internet providers for not providing a good enough service to allow users to use Netflix to its full potential and the costs of maintaining such a connection, mainly what ISPs are expecting streaming companies to pay them. This has also kicked off a debate about net neutrality which I know little about. I believe »

David S. Goyer on comic book movie fans and giving audiences what they don't even know they want

22 March 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When it comes to superhero adaptations, you'll be hard pressed to find someone with more experience in the genre than David S. Goyer, whose credits include Blade, Blade II, Blade: Trinity, Blade: The Series, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman and the upcoming Constantine TV series. Oh, and there's also Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the 90s TV movie starring David Hasselhoff. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Goyer has discussed comic book movie fans, and whether he pays any attention to their expectations when it comes to bringing these characters to the screen...

"You’re dealing with an incredibly vocal but incredibly tiny sort of [group]. That’s a mistake that I think a lot of sometimes networks and movie studios make is sort of listening too much to [them]. I mean, it »

David S. Goyer on 'Da Vinci's Demons,' Batman and Why Second Acts are the Hardest to Write

21 March 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David S. Goyer has made a career telling superheroes' tall tales. The writer of "Man of Steel," all three "Blade" films, and co-writer of "Batman Begins," Goyer also had a hand in "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises" as well as the short-lived "Blade" television show and "Nick Fury: Agent of Shield" TV movie. So, at first, it was somewhat surprising when the Michigan native signed on to create and be the showrunner of "Da Vinci's Demons" a few years back. Why not a superhero show, if he was going to write for television again? Heading into the season two premiere this Saturday, March 22 at 9pm on Starz, Indiewire sat down with Goyer to discuss his attraction to heroic figures, the differences between writing for movies and TV, and why Iron Man and Batman wouldn't exist without Leonardo Da Vinci. Going back to the beginning, what first attracted »

Official still of Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock in Gotham

20 March 2014 11:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier in the week we got our first look at Donal Logue (Blade, Sons of Anarchy) in Fox's upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham thanks to a set photo showing him and Ben McKenzie (The O.C., Batman: Year One) as a mustache-free Jim Godon, and now we've got the first official promo shot from the series featuring Bullock's "rough-around-the-edges" Gcpd Detective....

Presumably we can expect to see plenty more of the character images over the coming days and weeks...

David S. Goyer Did Not Direct The Walking Dead Episode 415

20 March 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last summer, it was revealed that David S. Goyer would be directing the fifteenth episode The Walking Dead Season 4, but the official credits that were recently released listed Greg Nicotero as the director. We’ve seen some conflicting reports, so we wanted to provide The Walking Dead fans with official word from AMC.

This started with a quote from David S. Goyer from a DC Entertainment party last July via i09:

“I’m doing a Walking Dead this year — the penultimate episode [of the season]. I haven’t gotten my script yet… I heard it’s an episode where something really bad happens.”

The writer and director is known for his work on Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, the Blade movies, and he wrote the screenplay for Man of Steel. With DC pushing forward on Batman/Superman and Justice League movies, we weren’t sure he had the time available and that »

Everyone has that one cinematic brawl that sticks with him or her. They buy special edition Blu-rays to watch the glorious scenes in high definition, wear shirts sporting their favorite competitor, and even engage in debates with other fans about which character they think would win if the duel occurred in real life.
