The Scorpion King 3: Battle For Redemption

Stars: Billy Zane, Ron Perlman, Victor Webster, Dave Bautista, Kimbo Slice, Selina Lo | Written by Brendan Cowles, Shane Kuhn | Directed by Roel Reiné

The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption continues the story of warrior Mathayus (originally played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, then Michael Copon and now played by Victor Webster) who is now a deadly assassin… Despatched by the King of Egypt, Horus (Pearlman) to protect his ally King Ramusan, in return for his services Mathayus is offered Ramusan’s daughter Silda’s hand in marriage, as well as the legendary Eye of the Gods medallion which imparts extraordinary supernatural powers to its wearer. However, all is not so simple. In order to redeem his reward, Mathayus must show his strength and courage by rescuing Princess Silda who is being held captive by Horus’ scheming brother Talus (Billy Zane).

So let me get this straight, »

'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation' Trailer Delivers the Goods ... Loudly!

13 December 2011 10:14 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

I make no secret of my affection for the big-time goofball matinee flick called G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. As a matter of fact, here's a direct quote from my review! "Credit to director Stephen Sommers, who (after befouling my brain with Van Helsing and The Mummy Returns) finds an amicable tone for The Rise of Cobra, and maintains his spirited approach throughout. The flick is jam-packed with bloodless PG-13 violence, but it also shows off a dry sense of humor and a playful visual spark that indicates a director who's actively trying to turn out a popcorn flick with a little style." So that's that. Plus the sequel (aka G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation) has all sorts of amusing things in its corner: A) Bruce Willis. B) The Rock. C) director John Chu. D)...

Status Report - G.I. Joe: Retaliation

1 December 2011 9:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson delivers a status report on the upcoming G.I. Joe sequel, Retaliation...

Codename: G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Current Whereabouts: Post-production

Key Personnel: John Chu (Director); Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick (Screenwriters); Channing Tatum, Ray Park, Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, D.J. Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Arnold Vosloo, RZA and Ray Stevenson (Cast).

Eta: June 22nd, 2012 (UK); June 29th, 2012 (USA)

Like many kids growing up in the 80s, I was a big fan of the G.I. Joe franchise (or Action Force as it was called here in the UK) and spent countless hours immersing myself in their fight against Cobra through the classic Sunbow-produced G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero cartoon, the accompanying Marvel comic book and of course, Hasbro's classic 3¾-inch action figure toy line. Sadly, I never got to see my heroes make it to the big screen during my childhood and it wasn’t until 2003 that the Joes’ jump »

Confirmed: Captain America Composer Alan Silvestri Is Scoring The Avengers!

4 November 2011 4:55 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A few weeks ago, last month, it was rumored that in the latest issue of Fsm Online, Captain America: The First Avenger composer, Alan Silvestri, was re-teaming with Marvel Studios on their Joss Whedon-directed blockbuster, The Avengers. There were also rumors that Silvestri's wife leaked the news early on Facebook. Well now, the filmography of Alan Silvestri has been updated on his official webpage, evidently confirming that he'll indeed be taking charge of the musical arrangement for the assembly of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Credits falling under The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger include Predators, Predators 2, The Mummy Returns, and two more that earned him Academy Award nominations - Forrest Gump and Polar Express. Back in July, Alan stated that, if asked, he'd be very happy to continue the relationship with Marvel. Considering Marvel's The Avengers is in post-production, and has been for a little over a month, »

19 October 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Release Date: Jan. 17, 2012

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $34.99

Studio: Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Victor Webster checks out the team in Scorpion King 3.

A DVD premiere, the action-adventure film The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption is an entry in the ever-popular and seemingly immortal franchise that  spawned The Mummy and The Scorpion King movies.

The film revolves around ancient Egypt’s Mathayus (Victor Webster, Burning Palms), who was last seen celebrating a triumphant rise to power in 2008’s The Scorpion King: Rise of the Warrior. Since then, things have taken a turn for the worse: Mathayus’ kingdom has fallen and he has lost his queen to plague. Now an assassin for hire, he must defend a kingdom from an evil tyrant (Billy Zane, Magic Man) and his ghost warriors to win back the power and glory he once knew, along with the hand of a slinky princess (Krystal Vee, »

The Scorpion King 3 Trailer Starring Billy Zane and Ron Perlman

14 October 2011 2:15 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

It seems insane that The Mummy franchise has spawned six movies over the past decade, and yet, here we are. The IMDb Trivia section for The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption points out that it is "a sequel to a prequel to a prequel of a sequel of a remake" so at least it has that going for it. You may recall that the Scorpion King (first played by Dwayne Johnson) was a villain in The Mummy Returns who made a deal with Anubis, god of the underworld, to be his eternal servant in exchange for revenge. The Rock became a good guy when he reprised his role in the first Scorpion King spin-off, and was then replaced with Michael Copon (Power Rangers: Time Force) for part 2. Now the same character will be played by Victor Webster (Castle). The Scorpion King 3 supposedly takes place between The Scorpion King 1 and 2, but to be honest, »

Top 5: Wrestlers turned actors

5 October 2011 11:30 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

As Anchor Bay UK releases Born To Fight onto DVD and Blu-ray this week (October 3rd) starring the one and only “Stone ColdSteve Austin, we thought we would have to look to see who the Top 5 Wrestlers turned actors are, past and present…

1) “Stone ColdSteve Austin

Our winner has to be “Stone ColdSteve Austin. Stone Cold has fought onto our screens many times over the years. Being the only action hero on this list even to be nominated for a Teen Choice. We have seen Stone Cold kick butt from The Longest Yard right through to Hunt To Kill, The Stranger and now Stone Cold’s newest movie; Born To Fight, and with yet more films from Austin coming in the very near future we think he’s the biggest wrestler-turned-action hero going.

2) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Dwayne Johnson, also known as “The Rock”, comes in at »

Resident Evil: Retribution – Oded Fehr Returns to the Franchise

26 September 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

On Friday, we told you that Michelle Rodriguez (Blacktino) was returning to the Resident Evil franchise, even though her character Rain Campo, which she portrayed in the original Resident Evil film from 2002 was first turned into a zombie and then got a bullet to the brain at the end of the film.

Now, in addition to Rodriguez and returning franchise castmembers, Sienna Guillory, Boris Kodjoe and Colin Salmon, Oded Fehr (For the Love of Money) is returning for Resident Evil: Retribution as well… despite the fact that even though his character, Carlos Rivera managed to live through Resident Evil: Apocalypse, he was forced to blow himself up at the end of Resident Evil: Extinction (see video below).

Fehr’s casting came to us via (what else?) a tweet from franchise star, Milla Jovovich:

Top 10 Wrestlers on Film!

15 September 2011 4:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

(An article from our archives for your pleasure today)

Wrestling involves a great degree of acting, so it comes as no surprise that a number of wrestlers have attempted to make it in the movies over the years. With the formation of the WWE film division a few years ago WWE chairman Vince McMahon is determined to crack the big screen as well as dominating the small screen. Since the Hollywood success of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a number of top wrestling stars have tried to follow in his footsteps and this shows no signs of letting up anytime soon with John Cena working with Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin on the upcoming 12 Rounds, with no doubt countless other wrestler starring vehicles to follow.

No matter how talented in the ring a wrestler is if they don’t have the charisma to hold an audience’s attention in interviews »

6 Awesomely Bad CGI Sequences in Bigger Budget Movies

25 August 2011 11:37 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In theory, CGI should never break your suspension of disbelief (unless you’re watching a Syfy Original or Birdemic, in which case it was never there in the first place).  In practice, budgets get tight, time gets short, and even mega-blockbusters like Lords of the Rings or Harry Potter will have a couple of crappy looking scenes. But sometimes movies that don’t even really need much CGI will toss it in for a short sequence, whether it’s just to show off,  save money, or even to mask Bill the microphone guy’s fuck up. Inevitably, though, at least one of those scenes ends up looking like the production company outsourced the job to someone’s Nintendo 64. When big budget movies have bargain basement special effects, everyone wins. And by “everyone,” I mean “no one,” and by “wins,” I mean “is paying attention to the movie anymore because they’re too busy laughing.” I »

Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

28 July 2011 9:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

British television is showing Gremlins, The Goonies, Blue Thunder, Red Heat, Tango & Cash and Innerspace this week. How can you argue with that?

Unless you're a fan of Warehouse 13, which starts its third season on Syfy this coming Thursday, August 4th with The New Guy, the summer lull continues through the next seven days, with an absence of brand new shows on the schedules.

That leaves only series that are midstream, such as Torchwood: Miracle Day, which nears its halfway mark between ten episodes on Thursday August 4th as well, with episode 4, Escape To La on BBC1 at 9:00pm. You can follow our coverage of the show here.

Also on BBC1, the repeat of the final episode of Sherlock's first series, The Great Game airs on Wednesday, August 3rd at 8:30, if you want a refresher before the second series launches this autumn. We have a few details »

Aardman’s The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists trailer

18 July 2011 1:30 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Aardman (or should that be ‘Aar!-dman’?), the studio behind the Wallace and Gromit films, Chicken Run, and Flushed Away, have brought us two of the most splendidly entertaining trailers in ages for next year’s The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, or, as it’s known internationally, The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

The first one has a tremendous sense of pace. It starts with Imelda Staunton (the loathsome Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter) as a knife-wielding Queen Victoria, in a spot of historical revisionism. She bellows “I hate pirates!”, as the Navy officers she’s addressing recoil nervously, and then she slams the knife down into the table, on which the trailer smash cuts to the Pirate Captain sticking his knife in the map, and a jaunty, energetic reworking of a pirate sea shanty kicks in. It’s rather catchy, actually.

As with the rest of Aardman’s work, »

Sly Stallone's 'Bullet To The Head' Adaptation Adds Christian Slater And Two more

13 July 2011 9:22 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Sylvester Stallone’s new movie may not have a name yet, but the actors are piling on.

According to Variety, Christian Slater, Holt McCallany and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje have joined the cast. The movie is based on the comic book “Bullet to the Head,” though it seems the film will end up with a different title. The story is about a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) who helps a police officer kill the people who killed their partners.

Slater will play a handler and McCallany will play another police officer. It sounds as if Akinnuoye-Agbaje will have the juiciest role, because he gets to play the villain. His character will be taking advantage of the most poverty-stricken parts of New Orleans that have been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

While Slater might be the best-known of the three, being in such films as “Interview with the Vampire” and “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, »

Bruce Wayne Moves Into Wollaton Hall

9 June 2011 7:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Wollaton Hall, the 16th-century mansion-turned natural history museum in Nottingham, looks to be serving as the exterior of the rebuilt Wayne Manor in "The Dark Knight Rises".

Batman on Film reports that the location will closed for a two-week period at the end of this month, “in order to enable a film to have exclusive access to the site.”

Exteriors and interiors for the Wayne Manor seen in "Batman Begins" were shot at Mentmore Towers in Buckinghamshire, the same place used in such films as "Eyes Wide Shut," "Brazil," "The Mummy Returns" and "Quills". That Rothschild estate is currently being redeveloped as a hotel and golf course which has probably made it unsuitable for use again.

Mentmore Towers however was designed by Joseph Paxton in 1855 to be a "near replica" of Wollaton Hall, making this the ideal alternate location. Any minor changes to the exterior can be put down to »

Great Years in Film: 2001

4 June 2011 9:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It was the year that many critics dubbed the worst in recent memory. With a toxic summer movie season that gave us disappointing dreck like Pearl Harbor and The Mummy Returns, and a dismal couple of autumn weeks where theatres were inundated with a staggering level of mediocrity (forgettable titles like Bandits, K-Pax, and Thirteen Ghosts to name a few), the year was looking unsalvageable.

But once awards season came, the cinemas were suddenly flooded with prestige films that were actually worthy of their plaudits. Michael Mann’s Ali–an impressionistic deconstruction of the legendary boxer, not just a by the numbers biopic–turned out to be one of the most visceral Civil Rights films ever made. The Coen Brothers fatalistic noir, The Man Who Wasn’t There, brought new Hollywood irony to old Hollywood gloss. Veteran auteurs like Robert Altman and Ridley Scott came out with some of their strongest material in years. »
