Robert Downey, Jr. admits that Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel’s best movie

28 August 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Robert Downey, Jr. admitted some hard truths this week in Toronto.

Despite having a very obvious loyalty to the Avengers – if you’re living under a rock: he’s Tony Stark in JonFavreau’s Iron Man and its sequels – the actor admitted that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the sci-fi opera with “a bunch of a-holes” is the best Marvel movie: “[Guardians of the] Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever - and it’s odd for someone with, on occasion, an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”

“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!’” said Downey, Jr.

“It’s like you have a great quarterback, »

Andrew Dominik Will Script Shaolin Temple, For Justin Lin To Direct

22 August 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In an unlikely but extremely promising match-up, Killing Them Softly writer-director Andrew Dominik has been tapped by Perfect Storm Entertainment and Beijing Enlight Pictures to pen the script for Shaolin Temple, a martial arts revenge epic which is set to be directed by The Fast and the Furious helmer Justin Lin.

The pic, a remake of the 1982 movie on which martial arts legend Jet Li made his feature debut, is being planned as a big-scale 3D epic with a hefty budget (when it was announced back in January, Shaolin Temple‘s projected budget clocked in at over $100 million). It’s inspired by Shaolin myth and takes place in ancient China, during the transition period between the Sui Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty.

As per Deadline: When the Tang emperor is betrayed by one of his generals, the son of one of his slave workers escapes to the temple, trains in kung fu, »

Warner Bros Pre-empts ‘Mack Bolan'; Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips Aboard

18 August 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: In a pre-emptive deal worth multiple seven-figures for the package, Warner Bros has acquired the Don Pendleton anti-terrorist operative Mack Bolan novel series and will develop it as a star vehicle for Bradley Cooper to potentially play Bolan, and Todd Phillips to potentially direct him. Avatar 4 co-writer Shane Salerno – who acquired the rights to the franchise from Pendleton’s estate — will write the script and produce along with Cooper and Phillips, who earlier this year joined forces and formed a Warner Bros-based producing label. It potentially could be the first action franchise for Cooper, who bulked up to play Navy Seal Chris Kyle in American Sniper, directed by Clint Eastwood for Warner Bros. Phillips is next directing Arms And The Dudes, about hapless guys who become arms dealers.

Exclusive: Over the course of his 900-volume novel series launched by Don Pendleton in 1969, elite anti-terrorist operative Mack Bolan has cracked every conceivable case except one–making it to a movie screen.

Avatar 4 co-writer Shane Salerno has closed a deal with the author’s estate and Gold Eagle Books giving him the rights to develop the Bolan character for a feature film series.

Salerno will write and produce, getting underway after finishing co-writing the Avatar sequel with James Cameron. He said his goal is to make a “relevant, grounded and gritty, real-world PG-13 action-drama film series.” He’ll package it with a filmmaker and actor, and then set it up at a studio quickly with the intention to get underway with a trilogy. »

It’s Alive…Universal Monsters Are Back!

18 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Universal Studios was home to some of the most iconic horror movies of the twentieth century, including Frankenstein, The Bride Of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Creature From The Black Lagoon and Dracula. Acting legends Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney. Jr lurched, stumbled and swooped across our screens, spawning a thousand nightmares and Halloween costumes.

Now it looks like the studio is planning a relaunch. Universal dipped its toe into its bank of monsters previously of course, with Van Helsing and The Wolfman among others. But this new project will present a unified approach.

At the moment Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, Star Trek, The Amazing Spider-man) and Chris Morgan (The Fast And The Furious) are on board. First Universal Monster to get the modern treatment is The Mummy, pencilled in for 2016.

So horror fans, is this good or bad news? Will you be doing the monster mash or diving »

Universal Reveal Plans to Launch Connected Universe Featuring Classic Movie Monsters

16 July 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal Pictures is a studio light on franchises, hence why they’re moving ahead with a sequel to the underwhelming Bourne movie starring Jeremy Renner and have decided to team with Legendary Pictures for a sequel to box office flop, Pacific Rim. Of course, they still have the Fast & Furious movies, while Jurassic World looks set to introduce a whole new generation of moviegoers to that franchise.

Regardless, the studio has now made the smart decision to take advantage of their library of classic and iconic movie monsters which includes the likes of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy.

It was revealed last night that, “Universal is now dedicating renewed resources and an unprecedented, far-reaching commitment to revitalize its monster heritage.” In order to do this, they’ve enlisted the help of Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan »

Universal Looking to Officially Bring Back its Monsters

16 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We've seen reboots of some Universal classics like The Mummy and The Wolfman before, and we even have things like Dracula Untold on the horizon. Now the house that monsters built is looking to revere its monstrous franchises anew!

According to Deadline the studio is in early stages of developing a substantial new production endeavor that will expand and unify a network of classic characters and stories. The architects of that narrative will be Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan.

Kurtzman recently broke with partner Roberto Orci, but his big-scale projects have included Transformers, Star Trek, and The Amazing Spider-Man. Morgan is the writer behind five installments of The Fast and the Furious, which has been Universal’s most reliably lucrative franchise. It’s not set in stone yet if either will write, but they will soon be going around town enlisting talent to bring new cinematic life to these enduring characters from lore, »

Blu-ray Review – The Driver (1978)

14 July 2014 5:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Driver, 1978.

Written and Directed by Walter Hill.

Starring Ryan O’Neal, Bruce Dern, Isabelle Adjani and Ronee Blakley.

Synopsis:

The Driver is the cat and mouse story of a professional wheelman (Ryan O’Neal) and the eccentric cop (Bruce Dern) who has become obsessed with putting his man behind bars.

This was my first time watching The Driver and even though it’s over 35 years old, this Walter Hill directed classic easily stands the test of time. It’s impressive not just because it holds, but because you can clearly feel its influence on pretty every car chase movie since. The obvious example being the Nicholas Winding Refn thriller Drive due to its lead characters being almost identical, as well as the opening scenes sharing a distinct familiarity.

It’s not just Drive though, The Driver’s influence can be felt on everything from The Fast and the Furious and The Transporter, »
