Wright’s film was among the most talked-about to premiere at South by Southwest earlier this month, with IndieWire’s Eric Kohn praising the “Hot Fuzz” and “Shaun of the Dead” director for the way he “takes a ludicrous concept and turns it into a brilliant exercise in high style and a rush of big ideas.” Its new release date comes at the height of blockbuster season, and “Baby Driver” will now be opening »

27 March 2017 3:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Into the Badlands, AMC’s genre-bending post-apocalyptic martial arts drama (try saying that five times fast) returned with a bang earlier this month, the first two episodes of season two earning largely rave reviews across the board.

Added to the action is a major new character, Baiji, being played by Nick Frost, the British actor famed for his comedy collaborations with old friend Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul), and, more recently, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Doctor Who and the upcoming TV comedy with Rupert Grint, Sick Note.

Wonder Woman rated PG-13 for “sequences of violence and action and some suggestive content”

22 March 2017 1:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it’s not exactly shocking news, following the release of the latest action packed trailer and some new promotional artwork on cans of Dr. Pepper, the MPAA has official certified Wonder Woman as PG-13 for “sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content.” None of that brief description differs from the norm regarding most comic book films, but it’s nice getting official confirmation.

There is always the possibility that there is an eventual R-rated Blu-ray cut similar to what Warner Bros. did with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and possibly to capitalize on the rising popularity of adult-oriented superhero films such as Deadpool and recently Logan. Realistically however, that probably won’t happen as all reports point to Wonder Woman being a much more light-hearted affair than the previous Dceu movies so far.

Edgar Wright discusses Baby Driver and reveals its origins

21 March 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Before The Worlds End, before Hot Fuzz and before Shaun Of The Dead, there was Baby Driver, or at least the beginnings of it. It's been four years since our last Edgar Wright film, but, after the unfortunate business with Ant-man, it feels as though it's been much longer. We're still a few months out from the release of Baby Driver, but the film recently had its premiere at SXSW and... Read More »

The Sweet Symphony of Violence

21 March 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best cinematic action of 2017 in three parts from the movies of SXSW.

It was heavier than I had anticipated. At the age of 16, if my memory serves me correctly, it was the first time I’d ever held a real gun. In the midwest, surrounded by a family full of avid hunters, this was a right of passage. At some point an uncle or two would want to show you the awesome power of a real firearm, both as appreciation for the weapon’s power and as a lesson in the seriousness of its deadly potential. The weight of the revolver in my hand brought both of these concepts to life with immediacy. It’s hard to hold a real gun and not be in awe and at least a little terrified. It’s a feeling I’ll never shake, perhaps one of those moments in which a teenager’s journey toward adulthood was accelerated a »

'Shaun Of The Dead' Was Based On Nick Frost's Zombie Survival Guide, He Has A Trump Plan Too

21 March 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Sometimes when I come across a story, I just smile. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost tend to make me do that, and on a side note I was ecstatic to see Nick Frost on Season 2 Episode 1 of Into The Badlands, which I hope I will have time to review today, as the show has taken a drastic turn.

These two fellows have created some hilarious movies over the years, and there has been a rumor that they are working on a new project. However, nothing will ever come close to the greatest Zombie movie ever made (yes Zombieland was awesome), Shaun of the Dead.

As it turns out, this movie was more than just fiction. Frost had a plan in place, and when talking with Inverse he described his "get outta zombie hell plan."

Shaun of the Dead, part of that was based on the out that me and Simon [Pegg] had, »

TV Ratings: ‘Into the Badlands’ Season 2 Premiere Fights to 40% Boost Over Season 1 Finale

21 March 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Into the Badlands” came out swinging in its Season 2 premiere on Sunday. The AMC martial arts series rose significantly in both key ratings measures over the Season 1 finale, which aired back in December 2015.

Airing at 10 p.m., the action-centric series’ sophomore opener drew a 1.42 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic and 3.435 million viewers. Compared to the Season 1 finale, that is approximately a 42% improvement in the demo and approximately a 37% improvement in total viewers. In addition, the series drew 1.972 million of its total viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic, making it the the number one returning drama for 2017 to date in both broadcast and cable in that demo.

To be fair, the Season 2 premiere did have the advantage of airing immediately after “The Walking Dead,” while the Season 1 finale did not. In addition, the Season 2 premiere was down compared to the Season 1 premiere. Season 1’s opening episode drew a 3.15 rating and 6.39 million viewers, meaning »

Into The Badlands Season 2 Review

19 March 2017 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The first season of Into the Badlands gave us a martial arts warrior who rode a motorcycle through a post-apocalyptic “Badlands” dominated by murderous nomads, opium-harvesting slaves and warring feudal lords. It contained zero smiles or laughs, aside from the occasional moments of violent glee on the faces of its most dangerous villains. The main characters were Sunny (the aforementioned motorcycle-riding warrior, portrayed by Daniel Wu) and M.K., a demon-possessed teenager (portrayed by Aramis Knight) who once murdered a boatload of slaves (while in the possession of the aforementioned demon).

Welcome to the second season of Into the Badlands, where much has changed. First of all, M.K. and Sunny are nowhere near one another, after spending the six episodes of season 1 going through the motions of a pretty typical mentoring dynamic. Sunny begins the second season in a chain gang desert »

‘Into the Badlands’ Review: Season 2 Will Cure Your ‘Iron Fist’-Induced Martial Arts Blues

19 March 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Not many shows in television history have put martial arts front and center to this degree, but “Into the Badlands” has stood out against the crowd since the very beginning. The series, created by Al Gough and Miles Millar and directly inspired by classic samurai films like “Yojimbo” and “Harakiri,” depicts a bleak universe centuries in the future, where the survivors struggle in a bloody feudalistic landscape.

Best way to survive? Be totally awesome at martial arts, like reformed assassin Sunny (Daniel Wu) and the many other unique characters who occupy this brutal land. And oh, how they battle it out in some of the best-executed action scenes on television, which invoke the top of Hong Kong in technique.

Following an explosively buzzy premiere at South by Southwest 2017, TriStar Pictures’ “Baby Driver” has become one of the first films to enter this year’s awards conversation. Writer-director Edgar Wright gained critical success and a devoted fan base with his 2004 horror-comedy “Shaun of the Dead,” 2010 action-adventure “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and more. “Baby Driver,” which filmed last year in Atlanta and screened March 11 at SXSW to immediate raves, marks the first U.S. premiere for the English filmmaker.  Atlanta Now Casting: Short Film “Capital Vice” + More Projects Ansel Elgort stars as a young getaway driver whose abilities behind the wheel are fueled by his personal soundtrack.
