Despite the fact that the action-comedy sequel Red 2 doesn't hit cinemas until July, Summit Entertainment must be confident that it has another hit on its hands, with Deadline revealing that the studio has hired screenwriting siblings Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (whose credits include Red and Red 2, along with the 2009 thriller Whiteout and last year's Hasbro board game adaptation-turned-alien actioner Battleship) to pen the script for Red 3.
The Red franchise is based upon the comic book series by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer and centres on a trio of 'Retired, Extremely Dangerous' ex black-ops agents, portrayed by Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich. The forthcoming sequel sees Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) taking over directing duties from Red helmer Robert Schwentke, while Mary-Louise Parker returns to the cast alongside new additions Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World), and Catherine Zeta-Jones (Side Effects).

Review Jennifer Cates 16 May 2013 - 10:53
Jennifer says this noir-flavoured episode of Warehouse 13 is great fun...
This review contains spoilers.
4.13: The Big Snag
A really enjoyable episode where we see Pete and Myka doing a campy, but surprisingly charming Casa Blanca, and the rest of the team touching on Artie’s guilt and seeming desire to end his life dramatically. We’ve also got some Galaxy Quest cameos here with the appearance of Missi Pyle and Enrico Colantoni, and the effect is a great one. They play at turns a convincing and hilarious version of two star crossed lovers, sort of, trying to make it in a hard boiled world. Missi Pyle in particular is a wonderful addition to the episode, and her rendition of “After You’ve Gone” is a special touch in an already stellar show.
If there was one criticism I would have to make, »
Red 2 is currently scheduled for theatrical release on July 19th. Dean Parisot, who helmed the 1999 Star Trek parody Galaxy Quest directs the film which stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mary-Louise Parker and Byun-Hun Lee. In Red 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, theyll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned »

Dean Parisot is taking to the helm in Schwentke’s place this time around, and with only a few more months to go before the film hits, Summit have begun gearing up their campaign in recent weeks, and things are looking awesome.
The first full-length trailer debuted late last month, and now they’ve released a great new poster, via moviefone, showcasing the returning leads and the new additions to the cast.

Did I say this time of the year is my Christmas? Scratch that, it’s Thanksgiving before I learned to take tiny portions the first time around and wait twenty minutes before getting more. I am in whatever you’d call the TV industry junkie version of a tryptophan coma. There’s a whole lof of news and hopefully I’ve managed to take Instagram pictures of all all the interesting dishes.

With the exception of the classic seminal Hitch-Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, funny science-fiction shows are in short supply. So much so, in fact, that I believe Red Dwarf may be the only one around — who mentioned Hyperspace? Get the hell out of here! The thing about it is that it doesn’t just lampoon science-fiction: that would be easy enough to do, as films like Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest, and even the Robot Chicken Star Wars have shown us. But it’s a lot harder to be properly respectful to the thing you’re putting a humorous slant on, and to understand and embrace it, than it is just to basically make a laugh out of it. And Red Dwarf has I believe managed to straddle the border between serious or at least semi-serious sci-fi and comedy, without totally sliding over onto either side.
Now you might say that’s wrong, »

To celebrate the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, the Flickering Myth writing team look back at the classic sci-fi franchise. Kicking off Star Trek Month is Matt Smith with a review of Star Trek: The Motion Picture....
The first time I watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the whole experience seemed to be over pretty quickly. Pressed play and before you knew it, it was over. Not because it was a whirlwind of a movie. I got called into work about eight seconds into the movie starting.
So, I tried again. I re-watched what I’d already seen, not wanting to skip ahead in case I’d forgotten something important, and was confronted with a blank screen and music. My TV seemed to be broken. ‘Great’, I thought, ‘my TV seems to be broken’ (I think in such scintillating prose). Turns out it was a minute and a half musical intro, »
Well, Sound on Sight’s Locations Month is coming to a close. A lot of good articles about iconic locations have gone up. But there’s one left. The big one. One of the most iconic and enduring locations in both film and television.
That’s right kiddies, it’s time to talk about the Vasquez Rocks.
The rocks were formed roundabouts 25 million years ago by rapid erosion and the San Andreas Vault. That’s right, this one wasn’t cobbled together by no independent contractor or stage hand, oh no. This sucker was formed in the dawn of time by the hand of freakin’ God.
The rocks took their name from Tiburcio Vásquez, who was either a brave freedom fighter crusading against the oppressive white man or a thieving, murderous outlaw depending on who you ask. Vásquez was active around the 1870s and used the rocks as one of »

Director Dean Parisot is our main reason for being interested in Red 2. Appreciating not everyone agrees, but we found that the Red first film ran right out of steam, after a promising opening. Yet the hiring of Parisot for Red 2, the director of Galaxy Quest and the upcoming Bill & Ted 3 (if that does indeed happen, as it looks like it will), has got us interested.
Granted, the cast is hardly shabby too. As well as Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren, the line-up includes John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Brian Cox. And from what we've seen thus far, a better film might just be in store.
Red 2 arrives in cinemas in August, and the latest trailer for it is right here. »

"What happens in the Kremlin, stays int he Kremlin." The retired but extremely dangerous crew of Red is back in the aptly titled sequel Red 2 with Bruce Willis and John Malkovich back in action after being set up by an unknown party. And now they're on Interpol's most wanted list with Byung Hun Lee in tow as one bad ass trained killer. This second trailer for the summer release looks like it might even be more fun than the first film, especially with a cooky Anthony Hopkins, and a feisty Catherine Zeta-Jones. Plus, it's just awesome seeing Helen Mirren in a role like this again with ridiculous action all around. Watch it! Here's the new trailer for Dean Parisot's Red 2, originally from Yahoo: Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Fun with Dick and Jane) will be taking over for director Robert Schwentke on Red 2, and the story follows »

Summit Entertainment has released a new trailer for director Dean Parisot’s (Galaxy Quest) action-comedy sequel Red 2. The spy follow-up pits ex-cia operative Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) against Victoria (Helen Mirren) when MI6 greenlights his assassination as Interpol’s “Most Wanted.” This trailer introduces us to the film's new characters, as Anthony Hopkins plays a living MacGuffin (similar to John Hurt's character in Crystal Skull) and Catherine Zeta-Jones plays an old flame of Willis' character who joins the group to combat a common enemy. Byung Hun Lee appears to bring some freshness to the film's action sequences, and the humorous tone is spot-on thanks to the sensibilities of Parisot. All in all, Red 2 looks to be quite the fun ride. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich. Red 2 opens on July 19th. Via Yahoo! Here’s the »

Opening this weekend is director Michael Bay’s fantastic dark comedy Pain & Gain. The film is based on a crazy true story and stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong. Pain and Gain also stars Anthony Mackie, Rebel Wilson, Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, and Bar Paly. For more on the film, watch some clips or the red-band trailer. Last week at the Miami press junket, I landed an exclusive interview with Tony Shalhoub. We talked about what it was like to work with Michael Bay, his reaction to finding out the story was based on real events, the great work by all the actors, and more. In addition, as a huge fan of Galaxy Quest, I couldn't help but have him reminiscence about making that movie and how it's stood the test of time. »
