With a little over two weeks to go until its Us release, a new trailer has arrived online for the upcoming action crime thriller Cartels (aka Killing Salazar). The film sees Steven Seagal once again reteaming with writer-director Keoni Waxman and also stars Luke Goss, Georges St. Pierre, and Martine Argent; check it out below…
Action legend Steven Seagal headlines this explosive thriller that pits U.S. forces against an Eastern European drug cartel. When crime boss Salazar turns informant, U.S. Marshal Jensen (Luke Goss, Blade II) and his team must guard their luxury-hotel safe house. But as cartel underboss Sinclaire (Ufc fighter Georges St. Pierre) and his hit squads descend to murder Salazar, the situation explodes, enraging Agent Harrison (Seagal), who will stop at nothing to root out the mole that compromised the operation.
Cartels is set for release on July 7th in the States. »

TaleWorlds Entertainment has released two videos showing an extended look at the large-scale, epic combat in their upcoming follow-up to Mount & Blade: Warband – Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.
Battles are at the very core of the series and play better than ever in the latest installment – check out the key battle improvements:
Advanced Formations – Merge and split forces at your behest, with intuitive but powerful control over the movement, form and behavior of every unit! Order heavy infantry to hold together, shoulder-to-shoulder in a slowly advancing but near impenetrable shield wall; or launch your cavalry in lightning charges using the skein formation. Battlefield AI – AI commanders can execute complex tactics, utilizing the advanced formation options to present a formidable challenge. Their behavior is drawn from actual historical tacticians, for example Alexander the great, who used his superior cavalry forces to rout their counterparts in the opposing army, before delivering a »

Scary films and monster movies are not only meant for the month of October, and this summer’s selection is proof – It, Annabelle: Creation, It Comes At Night and The Mummy.

Prepare for more big screen battles in the land of Eternia, because Sony Pictures has set a 2019 release date for a new Masters of the Universe movie.
According to multiple sources, including Box Office Mojo, the new Masters of the Universe movie is scheduled to come out on December 18th, 2019 from Sony.
Originally launched by Mattel in the early ’80s as an action figure line, the Masters of the Universe franchise follows a character called Prince Adam, aka He-Man, who bands together with fellow warriors to defend Castle Grayskull from the sinister sorcerer Skeletor and his followers.
The characters of the action figure line came to life in Filmation's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series in the ’80s, followed by a 1987 live-action movie starring Dolph Lundgren as Prince Adam / He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor (see above).

I’m sort of curious why Dreamworks even wanted to pay for the rights to make a Ghost in the Shell movie if they weren’t particularly interested in doing anything with the property they acquired. They seemed interested in making a cyberpunk movie, a cyberpunk movie about a badass lady android with some identity issues. I’m pretty sure you could just make an original one of those, no one owns cyberpunk or androids. If you’re going to pay for a beloved property you could try and tell a story they’ve already told, or at the very least not one that’s just like one they’ve told but much simpler and with a healthy dose of cliche. I don’t understand why you would buy a Japanese franchise and decide that you only want the Japanese-ness to be set dressing. If this was an original property »

The goal of any movie franchise is to build upon what came before while addressing its audience's expectations. In a film like last year's unconventional (and record-breaking) Deadpool, which kicked the superhero genre squarely in its collective cojones, this poses a real dilemma. Deadpool was successful precisely because it broke with convention and sought to be different; however, the concept of "sequel" generally implies formula.
The simple answer: play to your strengths! Deadpool was primarily interested in exploring its characters. Sure, every movie is about characters, but unlike most of the recent superhero films, which thrive on plot and spectacle, Deadpool shoved action and narrative aside to more deeply focus upon its characters and their relationships. I think we can all agree, »

Cliff Martinez is one of the most exciting composers in Hollywood today. Most recently, his scores in The Neon Demon and Steven Soderbergh’s Cinemax series The Knick are among the richest, most expressive music compositions of the past few years. As such, we were excited to hear what he would do with Logan, but alas, we’ll never know. For reasons unknown, Martinez has been replaced by Marco Beltrami, director James Mangold’s regular composer, who also worked on 2013’s The Wolverine.
The news came from Mangold’s own Twitter account (via Film Music Reporter). When pressed by a diehard Beltrami fan as to why the composer wouldn’t return, the filmmaker corrected him.
@marco_beltrami Sure! But always wise to start softer and hear from other side before making accusations. Relax. Marco is scoring the film.

There’s no explanation as to why Martinez stepped aside for Beltrami. »
