There are many things to like about Patton Oswalt. His stand-up is funny, biting and incisive, and he’s proven to be a more-than-capable dramatic actor in films ranging from Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult” and the underrated “Big Fan,” which you should see immediately if you haven’t already. One of Oswalt’s most endearing qualities is that he tells a damn good story. His recounting of Wesley Snipes smoking weed and communicating with “Blade: Trinity” director David Goyer exclusively through post-it notes is the stuff of legend by now, and his beautifully-written endorsement of Jody Hill’s redneck tragicomedy “The Foot Fist Way” made me want to see the film before a single episode of HBO’s great “Eastbound and Down” had hit the air. But the following tops them all. In an excerpt from his upcoming memoir “Silver Screen Fiend,” the comic/actor tells a bizarre, sometimes »

As a part of their announcement today, Warner Brothers slated a "Cyborg" movie for 2020. Ray Fisher is going to be taking on the lead role in the film as Victor Stone/Cyborg. That is going to make Ray Fisher the first big screen, big solo title, African-American superhero since Wesley Snipes was Blade (excluding "Hancock"). For the record, the last "Blade" film, "Blade: Trinity" was released in 2004. That means that it will be about 16 years between it and "Cyborg," depending on the exact release date for the new movie. We will, however, be seeing Fisher in the role of Cyborg before that stand-alone effort. Between now and then there are at least two "Justice League" movies, several solo efforts, and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Fisher is slated to appear in "Dawn of Justice," at minimum, and as a larger universe is being built, it would be terribly premature »

Horror cinema has a long tradition of creating iconic characters and none more so than those borne in the early days of the genre: characters such as Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and, of course, Dracula – the king of horror. A character who, despite his many cinematic deaths, always returns to the silver screen for one more bite of flesh… As he does this week in Dracula Untold, which features Luke Evans as the evil Vlad Tepes.
With that in mind we thought we’d rundown the ten best unforgettable Dracula performances in cinema. Check them out below and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree!
Dracula (1958) is the first in the series of Hammer Horror films. Directed by Terence Fisher, Dracula (1958) stars Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Melissa Stribling, Carol Marsh and Michael Gough. Retitled Horror of Dracula »

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Dominic Purcell (Blade: Trinity) has joined the cast of The Flash as the villainous Heat Wave. He'll first appear in the tenth episode, and his appearance will be alongside Wentworth Miller, the Resident Evil star who has been cast as Captain Cold. This marks the first time the duo have appeared together since playing brothers Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield in Prison Break. Captain Cold will make his debut in episode four, and Heat Wave will apparently also be heard from there. The site describes the character as, "a pyromaniac who finds an outlet for his obsession with fire when he teams up with Leonard Snart/Captain Cold and becomes the villain known as Heat Wave." This cast just keeps getting better and better, don't you think? Be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place! »
If you asked Wesley Snipes years ago if he’d like to star in a fourth Blade movie, he’d say “yeah,” if the script was right. And by the ‘right script’ he’d mean one that doesn’t include secondary heroes taking his screen time away. That was one of the many issues the actor and production endured during the making of 2004′s Blade: Trinity – a film that put an end to the R-Rated Marvel character’s career on the big screen and saw the franchise’s worst critical slamming.
The script was just one minor part of problems that plagued Blade 3 and even though Trinity director David S. Goyer – now a big time writer for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment – said five years ago that New ...

More speculation about a possible Blade 4, starring a newly rejuvenated Wesley Snipes, is swirling around the Internet thanks to his recent well regarded return to the big screen in The Expendables 3, and we have the latest for you here.
This tidbit of information comes from the Confidenti@l gossip column of the New York Daily News so no telling how concrete it is, but according to the site Wesley Snipes is set to reprise his lead role in a new installment of Blade for $3 million plus a cut of the profits.
The likelihood of the project getting the green light is “looking good” according to sources close to the actor.
Not a lot to go on, but we'll keep our eyes and ears open for more as it comes.

Sources claim his comeback is "looking good" after serving nearly three years in a federal prison for tax evasion, and that he will make $3 million for the sequel, along with an undisclosed cut of the profits.
Wesley Snipes starred as the title character in 1998's Blade, 2002's Blade 2 and 2004's Blade: Trinity, which were all distributed by New Line Cinema. Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to Blade in May 2013, and the studio announced later that month that a new Blade movie is being developed.
Neither Blade 4 nor the casting of Wesley Snipes has been announced by Disney and Marvel Studios. The film doesn't currently have a screenwriter or director attached, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more information comes in. »
At the peak of his career, Wesley Snipes delivered a gift unto the cinematic world that would be his crowning achievement. That gift was the double tap we call Blade and Blade II, which not only gave Snipes a career-defining role that he would cash in on with two sequels, but also kept comic movies alive after Batman And Robin tried its best to kill them. Unfortunately, between Wesley Snipes' tax problems and the horror that was Blade: Trinity, the series gave way to a crappy Spike TV series and eventually died. Now that comic movies are cool, and vampires are starting to get their bite back, it looks like it's time to welcome back the Daywalker. At least, that's what the NY Daily News seems to believe, as it's obtained the following scoop exclusive to its Confidenti@l column: Confidenti@l has learned Wesley Snipes is set to »

The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts on the leaked Deadpool test footage…
Perhaps the biggest surprise coming out of San Diego Comic-Con was the leaked test footage for the long-gestating Deadpool movie, directed by Tim Miller and featuring voice work by Ryan Reynolds. It was taken down, put back up, taken back down and then put up by Miller himself.
Watch the footage in glorious HD here.
So, what did you writing and editorial team think of the footage?
Oliver Davis: Bizarre. I like the idea of the super(aware)hero, but whenever I’ve picked up the books in the past, they’re too self-referential for me. Which is weird, because I love stuff like that usually. »

Back in 2004, before Dread Central was allowed to ejaculate its spunk upon the horror genre, Wesley Snipes was pretty vocal about not wanting to do another Blade movie after Blade: Trinity. Now that he's out of jail, his tune has changed... a lot.
"I’d be open to it," Snipes tells MTV regarding whether or not he'd return to the character. "We have some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now."
Amazing what the passage of time and incarceration can do for a person! He truly has been rehabilitated.
File this one under "Just Talk" for now, kids!

The actor stated that he would be keen to return to the role of Marvel Comics' vampire slayer at San Diego Comic-Con.
"I'd be open to it," he told MTV. "I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.
"I think we're better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early parts of the franchise were experimental and now they've become customary in a lot of the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations. »
It’s been almost a decade since Blade: Trinity put a stake through heart of Welsey Snipe’s badass vampire killer, effectively halting future franchise installments, but that doesn’t mean Snipes is happy with leaving the role dead and buried. Blade was one of the first big comic book adaptations to kickstart the whole superhero genre, along with the massively successful X-Men films, and now that Snipes has cleared up most of his personal problems, it seems like a perfect time to start talking about a possible Blade 4.
Sure, Snipes is a modest 51 years old as of now, looking a little more aged than the comic book form of Blade, but he’s got a damn fine pitch that would please pretty much every horror fan if it were to become a reality. While talking to EW about the possibility of another Blade film, he revealed the following story »

Now that Blade is back at Marvel Studios, you’d have to assume that there’s absolutely zero chance of the franchise picking up where Blade: Trinity left off, but that has stopped Wesley Snipes from expressing his interest in playing the Daywalker one more time during an interview with MTV (via Cbm) at the San Diego Comic-Con.
“I’d be open to it. I think we’ve got some stones left unturned and there’s some latitude left for us to build on and I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then.

Wesley Snipes headed down to San Diego this weekend to promote his action-packed sequel The Expendables 3 at Comic-Con 2014. In two separate interviews, the actor addresses the possibility of reprising one of his most iconic roles, the vampire-killer Blade.
While it doesn't seem that any definitive plans are in place yet, the actor told MTV that he would be open to returning for Blade 4.
"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

Since then, Snipes has famously spent some time behind bars due to some issues with the IRS. He's finally back on the acting scene though, and "The Expendables 3" in a few weeks is set to herald his return to cinema.
Snipes joined the cast of that latter film at Comic Con this weekend and MTV News was there to ask him if he'd like to slip on the fangs to play Blade once again. The actor seemed enthusiastic about the idea:
"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and »

Movie Trailers - Celebrity News After the extremely disappointing Blade: Trinity, the franchise pretty much died out (something which wasn't helped by star Wesley Snipes spending some time behind bars). Marvel Studios regained the rights a few years back as a result, but Snipes - who is part of The Expendables 3 cast - told MTV News at this weekend's Comic-Con that he would like to jump back into the role given the chance. "I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

After over sixty years of ups and downs, Marvel was poised to begin building its film empire right at the start of the new millennium. Blade had released in 1999 and showed that a Marvel character could be successful on screen for the first time, and Marvel Studios was licensing its characters to production companies after their comic book successes in the 90s. At that point, no one knew what a huge success Marvel movies would be and few companies were willing to give a Marvel property the budget it needed to be done well. No one would have believed that in a little over a decade, Marvel would be at the forefront of Hollywood. Today we’ll look at the movies Marvel released from 2000 on and analyze what it took to build an empire.
Movies are changing, and Marvel is at the helm. Join us for part 2 of a four »

Who would you want to direct an action-packed journey around the human body? While I’m tempted to say David Cronenberg, the answer “James Cameron” is probably the more solid proposition and just as well, as his remake of 1966′s Fantastic Voyage has reportedly shifted a little further along the digestive tract with the news that David S. Goyer is on treatment duty.
The story concerns a team of scientists who are miniaturized onto a tiny submarine and despatched into the body of a defected Russian scientist to ensure his survival and obtain his secrets. Richard Fleischer’s original film featured the eclectic casting of Raquel Welch (One Million Years BC) and Donald Pleasence (Halloween) and had the distinction of being novelized by sci-fi master Isaac Asimov (I, Robot). An interesting parallel to Cameron, who hired respected author Orson Scott Card (Ender’S Game) to write up The Abyss back »
