Way back in 2013, it was reported that a female Expendables spinoff – titled The ExpendaBelles – was in development, with Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde) signing on to direct and Sylvester Stallone and Avi Lerner said to be producing.
Well, it seems that Stallone wants it made clear that he’s not involved , with one of his reps telling Gossip.com that: “Sylvester Stallone has no involvement whatsoever in the Expendabelles project. Any and all reports that he plans to proceed with an all-female cast of the Expendables franchise are completely false and should be disregarded altogether.”
Original reports has suggested that The ExpendaBelles would film last year, while a host of actresses were said to be in contention, including the likes of Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day) and Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Naomi Watts (21 Grams), Marcia Gay Harden (Fifty Shades of Grey), Li Bingbing »

Low on nightmare fuel? Fill up your tank by reliving your scariest memories from The Real Ghostbusters, a truly twisted 80s cartoon...
The Real Ghostbusters was a pretty messed-up cartoon sometimes. I think that’s one of life’s universal truths. I’m not quite sure why the world needed an unholy amalgam of anime, cheesy 80s synth music, and mind-bending eldritch horror with a chiselled version of Bill Murray on top. But it did, and it still feels so right to this day.
Video of The Real Ghostbusters: Intro and Closing (without credits) [HD]
Ah, Dic Enterprises. What would my childhood have been without you? Well, for starters, I suppose I wouldn't have been terrified of the cartoon demons you dreamt up in your Real Ghostbusters cartoon, you sadistic monsters!
Ahem. Sorry, I didn’t mean to snap. It’s just… Rgb (as the hardcore fans »

It’s only 84 more days. That’s not too long, right? The release date for the next installment of Kate Beckinsale’s vampire action film, Underworld: Blood Wars, has been pushed back from October 14, 2016 to January 6, 2017. While this may seem like an odd time for this kind of movie, three of the four Underworld flicks have come out in January. The only one that didn’t, the original Underworld, was a September release. Since the franchise began in 2003, the four films have grossed an unadjusted $458 million. The 2012 installment, Underworld: Awakening brought in $160 million. In addition to Beckinsale, the movie will feature Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, and Theo James. »

In a move that's rarely a good sign, the next Underworld movie has been bumped from it's pre-Halloween release date this October to January of 2017. Three little months; One big statement.
While it's getting harder to refer to certain periods in the Hollywood release cycle as "dead zones," since there have been recent successes found in movies that have opened in just about any month of the year, bumping a "vampires and werewolves" movie out of the Halloween lineup and into the doldrums of January doesn't bode well for Underworld: Blood Wars. It calls to mind when I, Frankenstein came out in January of 2014. If you can't confidently open a flick with this kind of subject matter during the traditionally "spooky monster movie season" of October, that doesn't inspire much confidence in your movie.
This, despite the fact that Kate Becksinsale is set to return to the franchise she started »

Back in April, Screen Gems released the first teaser poster for Underworld Blood Wars, although it didn't featuring returning star Kate Beckinsale or any of the other cast members. Since the release date had already been set for October 14, most assumed that the first trailer was just around the corner, but the studio still hasn't released any footage as of yet. Today we found out why, with Screen Gems officially pushing the movie from October 14, 2016 to January 6, 2017.
Variety reported on the release date shift, but there was no reason given for why the date was pushed into 2017. In its new date on January 6, 2017, Underworld 5 will be going up against The Weinstein Company's Amityville: The Awakening, starring Bella Thorne and Universal Pictures' Mena, starring Tom Cruise. The first weekend of January is typically quite slow at the box office, but that could change next year, with three high-profile projects hitting theaters. »

In a world of constant uncertainty, one thing we know for sure is that Scott Speedman is a gorgeous, gorgeous man. The 40-year-old actor first caused us to doodle his name in our school notebooks in 1998 when he landed the role of Ben Covington on Felicity. Since then, he's starred in hits like Underworld, The Strangers, and The Vow. Currently, he stars opposite Ellen Barkin on TNT's Animal Kingdom. But aside from his long career, Scott has kept our attention over the years with his unfairly handsome smile, his ever-changing hair, and his adorable personality (did you know he placed ninth at the 1992 Olympic trials as part of the Canadian Junior National Swim Team?). Keep reading for more photos of Scott that will make you want to send his mother a basket of muffins (seriously, thank you, Mary Campbell). »

Love & Friendship, 2016.
Directed by Whit Stillman.
Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centers on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica.
Those who dread the prospect of yet another Jane Austen movie frock fest would do well to be pointed in the direction of Love & Friendship, director Whit Stillman’s deliciously acerbic Regency romp in which the clothes and decor support the satire, not vice versa. Too often, Austen adaptations are cosseted, corseted and more than a little bland; under Stillman’s typically deadpan direction, the author’s deliciously spiky sense of humour is joyously restored.
Not only is the reputation of »

Actress Kate Beckinsale has a busy year ahead of her. She currently stars in Whit Stillman's latest film "Love and Friendship," based on Jane Austen's epistolary novel "Lady Susan"; her performance has received rapturous reviews from many critics. She's also set to appear in the upcoming horror film "The Disappointments Room" and "Underworld: Blood Wars," the fifth installment in the "Underworld" franchise. After 25 years in the film industry, Beckinsale has plenty of stories, and not all of them are so pleasant, including her time spent with director Michael Bay on "Pearl Harbor." In a recent appearance on "The Graham Norton Show," Beckinsale said that she thinks Bay was "baffled" by her because her "boobs weren't bigger than [her] head" and that she "wasn't blonde."

After her father, Richard, died, the Underworld star grew up in London surrounded by her stepdad’s leftie pals. Now in La, she tells us about starring in Whit Stillman’s Jane Austen adaptation, Love and Friendship
It hath long been decreed that whensoever two or more Britons shall gather together in Los Angeles, the talk shall soon enough turn ... to Marmite. Or in Kate Beckinsale’s case, “Marmite characters”, such as her lead role, the delightfully daunting Lady Susan, in Whit Stillman’s sprightly Jane Austen adaptation Love and Friendship.
“I was at the end of a long day of interviews once and I found myself deep in a Marmite conversation with an American journalist. Impossible to describe it to them because they think it tastes like motor oil. Some of my characters – the ones I like playing – are like Marmite in that you either really love the character »

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.
Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.
Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. »
