Lou Ferrigno to dish out ‘Instant Death’

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bodybuilding legend, and star of the hit 70’s TV show The Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno is to star in Instant Death, the latest film from Raging Pictures. The gritty, revenge thriller will be directed by Ara Paiaya, whose previous film Skin Traffik (known in the UK as A Hitman In London) is currently being released around the World.

The film marks something of a departure for Ferrigno who has predominantly done family and comedy films over the years (but has appeared in a handful of more violent films) and has regularly cameoed in some form with Marvels recent incarnations of the Hulk.

“A vicious gang war for drug dominance draws in a disturbed Special Forces Veteran (Ferrigno). Trying to adjust to normal life and haunted by inner demons and a violent past, the underworld’s retribution on his daughter and grandchild (his last connections to humanity) leads him to a »

In Defence Of... Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama Hulk

16 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At the time of writing, Marvel have not yet confirmed a third standalone Hulk movie, but without giving anything away, the closing events of Avengers: Age of Ultron definitely leave that door wide open. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time to re-appraise ol' greenskin's first big screen outing, Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama, Hulk.

Released in 2003, Hulk took a total of $132.2 million at the Us box office, just short of its reputed £137 million budget. Though it eventually took over $245 million worldwide, it was perceived as a flop, significantly under-performing compared to the likes of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man or Bryan Singer's X-Men movies. Hulk not box-office Smash, in other words. Critics weren't overly kind either – it earned 62% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, indicating decidedly mixed reviews albeit with a positive slant.

Based on the Marvel comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby »

Supergirl: a few thoughts on the trailer criticism

14 May 2015 11:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Supergirl upfront has garnered strong reactions online, not all of it positive. Here's a response to its critics...

It's fair to say the Supergirl trailer (actually an "upfront" – a précis of the entire pilot designed to sell the show internally and to advertisers) has attracted a lot of praise. It's also attracted a lot of criticism. But how valid are those criticisms? I'll say now that none of us has any idea whether this show will actually be good or not – I think it will, based on what I've seen – but I don't know. What I do know is that some of the things people are saying about it don't seem fair.

Criticism of the trailer's rom-com influences, perceived cheesiness, comparisons to a certain Saturday Night Live sketch, and complaints that its version of Kara Zor-El isn't (we'll come back to this) a "strong female character" are all problematic, »

What Joss Whedon Originally Wanted To Do With The Hulk In Avengers 2

6 May 2015 6:19 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warning: There are spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron ahead! While it was clear where we left off with most of Earth.s Mightiest Heroes at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Hulk.s conclusion was more ambiguous. After throwing Ultron out of the Quinjet during the battle in Sokovia, the Green Goliath decided to stay in the aircraft so that he wouldn.t be able to harm anyone else. Our last shot of the Hulk was him looking at the sky as the Quinjet flew to parts unknown. Over a year before Age of Ultron was released, it was rumored that the film would see Hulk shot into space, but director Joss Whedon confirmed that, although that was never the plan, he did have a slightly different ending in mind for the Big Green Guy. Whedon told Empire Online that it was never his intention to directly »

12 times 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' revealed future Marvel movie plots

2 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the wake of “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” HitFix speculated on future Marvel movies based on the information in the film. Some of those educated guesses have come to pass, some are still up in the air, and none of them have been proven (completely) false. Buoyed by this, I’m taking the plunge again with “Avengers: Age of Ultron” because by golly this movie was Packed with future story threads just waiting to be followed down the rabbit hole of comic book lore. Warning: Spoilers For “Age Of Ultron” And Possibly Future Marvel Movies Beyond This Point. I Am Not Joking. #1: Introducing Dr. Helen Cho could mean the Greek gods are on their way to the McU.

Joss Whedon Explains Why Loki was Cut from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

1 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If there's one thing Avengers: Age of Ultron isn't short on it's action. If there's another thing it's got an abundance of it's characters. As I noted in my review, not only do we have Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow you have other series characters such as War Machine/Iron Patriot, Falcon, Maria Hill, Eric Selvig, Peggy Carter and, of course, Nick Fury. Then you add to that the new characters such as the villainous Ultron, the superhuman twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch and then Ulysses Klaw and, well, you're bursting at the seams. But guess what, there were originally going to be more. At one point Captain Marvel, who will be getting a film of her own on Nov. 2, 2018, was going to be introduced near the end of the film, but Marvel's Kevin Feige told Badass Digest, "To me, it would have done that character a disservice, »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Opening Night Box Office Scores $27.6 Million

1 May 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Avengers: Age of Ultron opening night box office was booming. Variety reports that the film raked in $27.6 million from opening night screenings. The Avengers pulled in $18.7 million from opening night screenings, although keep in mind that pre-midnight screenings became far more prevalent after the Aurora shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Nevertheless, Age of Ultron is already speeding towards breaking The Avengers’ all-time opening weekend of $207 million. I’m more curious about whether or not the movie will have legs. Reviews for Age of Ultron have been slightly less positive and there's no longer the novelty of seeing these characters share the screen. The question is what film will be able to dethrone Avengers at the box office.

Martha Thomases Reviews Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Lucky for me, it was the “friends and family” screening of Avengers: Age of Ulton.

First of all, I was lucky because I got to go. I was lucky to hear Joe Quesada introduce the film, not only because he was amusing but he was gracious enough to thank the event planners before he thanked the Hollywood bosses. Trust me, as someone who has worked events for more than 20 years, it’s unusual when someone says “Thank you.” He also thanked all the people who worked on the books, the source material for the movies.

And I was lucky because of the audience. The people in Manhattan’s Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday were Marvel (and Disney) employees, freelancers, and their plus-ones. It was the kind of audience that cheered the coming attractions (Ant-Man), of course. They cheered the created-by credits. They cheered Stan Lee. From their cheers, I could »

Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The 2015 summer movie season officially kicks off with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Needless to say that the bar has been set pretty damn high here. The prior installment, The Avengers (2012), was a well-received film that also had the third highest gross in history with $1.5 billion in ticket sales. That doesn’t even count all the merchandise the film sold. When critics and fans like your work, then you know the job has been done right. Now, the trick is to pull it off again.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was directed by Joss Whedon, who also directed the prior film. It has already been announced that Whedon will not direct the next film in the series and after the success and time expenditure, roughly half a decade, one can certainly understand that decision. He has already hit the pinnacle by going from fan-boy and cult favorite to the writer/director of »

Film Review: Rousing ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Hits Modern Society’s Central Nervous System

30 April 2015 9:14 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Look. We all know sequels usually suck. And blockbuster films often get panned for overprioritizing special effects at the expense of a well-written story and character development. Even when a story in a big-budget film is redeeming, it’s practically impossible not to shoot holes through it.

Taking three years as a follow up to 2012’s “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of James Spader” – I mean, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” – kicks off 2015’s summer blockbuster season in true Hollywood style. Regardless of what he said or she said, you know you’re very likely going to see it in theatres or eventually at home. A perfect film it is not (as most aren’t), but an enjoyable film it definitely is for 141 minutes that certainly don’t feel too long.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

This sequel features a rich story that’s much deeper than surface level, memorable characters that all play »

Why The Hulk Movies Didn't Work, According To Stan Lee

30 April 2015 9:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Of all the Marvel Comics characters who has been making his way into movies in recent years, Hulk arguably has had the rockiest road. While the character gained a great deal of notoriety thanks to the Incredible Hulk television show, and was considered by many to be the best part of Joss Whedon's The Avengers, the two solo features in which he has starred in the past 15 years didn't go over nearly as well with audiences or critics. So what's the reason behind this? Well, the monster's original creator, Stan Lee, believes that the films simply make him too powerful for his own good. The Marvel Comics founder recently sat down for an extensive interview with Rolling Stone to talk about The Hulk - who is featured on this month's cover - and it was during the conversation that Lee revealed his thoughts about how Hulk should operate in »

Watch Stan Lee give a cameo acting masterclass to Tara Reid and Lou Ferrigno

30 April 2015 4:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stan Lee is the world's greatest cameo actor, and now he's passing on his wisdom to the next generation.

The actor filmed a tongue-in-cheek masterclass with stars like Tara Reid, Michael Rooker, Lou Ferrigno and Jason Mewes, telling them how to make the most of the briefest of on-screen appearances.

"I didn't get to be the world's greatest cameo actor overnight," he says. "It took years of hard work."

The video was released to coincide with the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, following Lee's many fleeting guest appearances in Marvel films.

Over the years, Lee has popped up in Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and The Avengers.

He has also made appearances in multiple Spider-Man movies, and made an animated cameo in Disney and Marvel's Big Hero 6.

Watch: Honest Trailer For Ang Lee's 'Hulk,' The Most Forgettable Movie About A Rage Filled Monster Ever Made

29 April 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Starting late tomorrow night, U.S. audiences will be able to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (read our B- review). But before you sit down for the latest and greatest Marvel Studios has to offer, let’s wind back the clocks to the halcyon days of 2003 when Kevin Feige had a lot less power, the comic giants weren’t in the business of making their own films, and the big green monster finally got his own movie. Directed by Ang Lee and starring Eric Bana alongside Jennifer ConnellySam Elliott and Nick Nolte, 2003’s “Hulk” dared to eschew the typical action movie structure for something more poetic, albeit with comic book style transitions. It’s a film that plays less like a faithful rendering of the Hulk onscreen and more like Lee using the characters and trappings to delve into his favorite themes of repression and family dysfunction. Naturally, this »

But let’s not forget that Ruffalo’s Hulk is actually the third big-screen incarnation of the character. The first was Eric Bana‘s version, in 2003’s Hulk directed by Ang […]

Ang Lee's 'Hulk' Is Smashed, Painfully, in Super Honest Trailer

29 April 2015 2:08 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In honor (sort of) of the May 1 premiere of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Screen Junkies took a good look at one of The Hulk's previous cinematic efforts, Ang Lee's 2003 "Hulk."

As the "Hulk" Honest Trailer begins, "You loved Mark Ruffalo. You tolerated Edward Norton. But admit it, you forgot about Eric Bana until I said his name just now. Get ready for the most forgettable movie about a giant rage-filled monster ever made in 'Hulk.'" Lee's "Hulk" is dissed as "a two-hour long think piece" and "one of the dullest superhero movies ever made." Meet Bruce Banner, a "monotone, unlikable scientist" we wouldn't like when he's angry ... or calm ... or acting.

"Witness Banner's true nature unleashed when a freak accident turns him into a man who looks like he's struggling to hold in a fart."

It's harsh, but pretty true, and very, very funny. Watch the whole take-down below. »
