Phantasm: Ravager trailer

20 September 2016 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Sep 21, 2016

The terrifying Tall Man makes his creepy return in the trailer for long-awaited horror sequel Phantasm: Ravager...

One of horror cinema’s most unsung, yet influential franchises makes a return glistening with global devastation in Phantasm: Ravager. The trailer for the upcoming release of the belated fourth sequel of the Phantasm film franchise showcases an upgraded return for writer/director Don Coscarelli’s illusion-imbued cinematic shockfests.

The trailer for Phantasm: Ravager, the franchise’s first entry since 1998’s Phantasm IV: Oblivion, sticks to the tried and true, once again focusing on the series’ repertory ponytail-rocking protagonist in Reggie Bannister’s 'Reggie'. Apparently having spent the last 18 years wandering the Earth like Caine from Kung Fu, it seems that Reggie is ready for what is being billed as the final showdown between him and The Tall Man.

China’s Shinework Pictures Unveils Fund, Slate of Co-Production Movies (Exclusive)

20 September 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Well-established Chinese TV producer, Shinework Media has launched a feature film division with a high-powered slate of co-production movies.

Shinework Pictures, which is already producing the $65 million Jackie Chan film “Kung Fu Yoga,” says it expects to deliver 3-5 movies per year.

The slate was unveiled Tuesday in Xi’an, the historic city where the Silk Road International Film Festival is currently being held.

The lineup announcement was complemented by the launch of a film finance fund. The scale of the fund was not immediately confirmed though as this stage it is understood to have received investments from private equity sources, predominantly high net worth individuals.

“The film fund and production company’s slate will be focused on commercial China co-production films that will appeal to the China box office and international markets with budgets ranging from $10 million to $60 million,” the company said in a statement. The model sees Shinework »

Birth of the Dragon Trailer: Bruce Lee Vs. Wong Jack Man

19 September 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after the poster arrived for the martial arts biopic Birth of the Dragon, the trailer has finally dropped. While this movie isn't the first to address Bruce Lee's legend, it is the only one to detail a legendary fight between Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man, which helped define Bruce Lee and turn him into a legend. The film premiered last week at the Toronto International Film Festival, but a domestic release date has not been issued.

An affectionate nod to the classic Kung Fu films of the 1970s, Birth of the Dragon is a dramatization of the true life but much disputed fight between Kung Fu greats Bruce Lee (Philip Ng) and Shaolin Master Wong Jack Man (Yu Xia) in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1964. Based on Michael Dorgan's magazine article, "Bruce Lee's Toughest Fight," the film is written by Chris Wilkinson and Stephen J. Rivele, »

Marc Alan Fishman: The Science of Selling

17 September 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

If there’s one thing Unshaven Comics has been celebrated for by our peers, our fans, and our nemeses alike, it’s our ABC mentality. “Always. Be. Closing.” Alec Baldwin barked at us through gritted teeth. And boy howdy did that lesson stick. Since our second-ever convention appearance, my cohorts and I have adopted the mentality that while we love what we do, that we can’t do it unless our convention appearances end lucratively. Hence, we operate adhering to the science of the sale.

In less poetic terms, that means that every possible decision / choice we’ve made — from the products offered, to the pitch, the bundles we offer, straight through to the question we ask to close business — has been scrutinized to the Nth degree. It’s been a while since I’ve unpacked these bags for you, my adoring fans, so let’s dump all the dirty laundry on the floor, »

Star Wars 8 Spoiler Teases Epic Luke Skywalker Fight Scene?

9 September 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's long been suspected that Luke Skywalker will be the secondary lead character in Star Wars: Episode VIII. While he only got one minute of screen time in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that will all change with this next chapter in the Skywalker saga. The Master Jedi is back, and he will be more powerful than ever before. In fact, a new rumor claims that he will be taking on a few deadly assailants all at once in a cool ode to classic Kung Fu movies. Do we even need to warn you that the rest of this story is filled with Spoilers?

Yes, a major fight scene has been revealed from Star Wars 8. And while this latest report comes from TrailerAddict as an unconfirmed rumor, it is backed up by numerous sources that were near the set watching it all go down. This isn't the first time we've heard this particular scene described. »

The surprise box office hits of 2016

6 September 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 8, 2016

Lots of films struggled at the box office this summer - but 2016 has not been short of surprise box office hits. This lot, in fact...

Much of the box office analysis of 2016 – especially summer 2016 – has focused on the collection of films that have fallen short of expected revenues. Be they Star Trek Beyond, Ghostbusters, Independence Day: Resurgence, X-Men: Apocalypse or Ice Age: Collision Course, there’s been no shortage of stories of box office troubles.

But what about the films that have genuinely surprised, and that have found a larger audience than people had been expecting? Turns out that there have been quite a few…

Bad Moms

In a summer where the likes of Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates and Bad Neighbours 2 failed to really take off, Bad Moms has proven to be an R-rated comedy treat. Not helped at first by being sold as from the writers of The Hangover, »

Check Out Porter Robinson’s DJ Set From A Japanese Nightclub

23 August 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Porter Robinson‘s performance repertoire now generally consists of his ambitious live show that he’s been touting since the release of his acclaimed album Worlds, the forward thinking producer is still known to man the decks and drop the occasional DJ set from time to time. One such performance was captured during a recent stint at Tokyo night club ageHa and has been uploaded to YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

Porter delivers an energetic DJ set for the crowd at ageHa, mixing in a sturdy blend of hard hitting electro and the dreamy brand of synth work we’ve come to expect from him. He drops a number of his best tracks here, like his remix of Nero’s “The Thrill,” a bunch f cuts off Worlds, and his recent collab with Madeon on “Shelter.”

While he’s certainly pushed the boundaries of electronic music performance with his live show, »

Whether you wanted to or not, you probably learned a lot of people’s seven favorite films yesterday. #fav7films was the hashtag du jour, presumably because a standard top 10 would have been more likely to go over Twitter’s 140-character limit, and among the many civvies chiming in were a number of actors and filmmakers.

Thomas Gibson won't have 'Criminal Minds' to kick around anymore

15 August 2016 12:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. When I was a kid, I got really into the Nintendo video game, Kung Fu. I used the kick button exclusively. I kicked the bad guys. I kicked the level bosses. I kicked and kicked until I won. Maybe Thomas Gibson did, too. and maybe he never outgrew Kung-Fu because he was fired last week from the CBS procedural Criminal Minds for kicking someone.   I know what you are thinking. What's the big deal? Who hasn't been kicked, even if by accident? But trust me, it's not good to be on a set where this is happening. It might seem fine as long as it's not you, but once a 54-year-old actor comes at you with his outstretched foot, it doesn't seem like a good time anymore. I've never seen Criminal Minds, »

Next up from ‘Little Prince,’ ‘Kung Fu Panda’ director: A comic book adaptation

29 July 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mark Osborne has taken on Kung fu-fighting pandas, a beloved French tale of a prince from a tiny planet, and a sponge that lives in a pineapple under the sea. Next up, the New Jersey-born animation director is looking to bring a comic book series from panel to screen, though he wouldn’t yet reveal which one. “I’m in talks about doing another adaptation,” Osborne told me yesterday while we were discussing his Little Prince film. “I will say it’s an iconic comic book series but not [about] a superhero. It’s an independent comic series.” He revealed that it would be an animated film adaptation but wouldn’t say much more about the project. Osborne has retweeted a couple tweets lately about Bone, Jeff Smith’s awards-showered series that’s getting its first new storyline in 10 years in the new Bone: Coda. Could this be what Osborne’s working on? »

Warrior's Gate Trailer: Why Aren't We Talking About this Luc Besson Fantasy?

27 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Warrior's Gate is essentially The Last Starfighter re-imagined as an epic Chinese fantasy. In it, a teenager is magically transported to China where he learns to convert his video game skills into those of a Kung Fu warrior. While that's kind of a weird premise, it's even weirder that nobody is talking about the film despite the fact that two trailers have dropped and they look pretty darn great.  Warrior's Gate is a Chinese/French co-production between EuropaCorp and Fundamental Film. The two also partnered on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets which recently made a splash at Comic Con and is getting a significantly bigger push.  The film was written by Besson and long time collaborator Robert Mark Kamen (Taken, The Fifth Element) and...

Michelle Yeoh on Inspiring Marco Polo Role: 'It's Very Important to Empower Women to Believe They Can Do Things Without Men'

Former Bond girl Michelle Yeoh isn't arm candy any longer. The 53-year-old, who joined Netflix's Marco Polo's second season this year, has her own leading role and continues to kick butt on screen. Yeoh tells People her role involves a lot of stunts, which she "loves every moment of." "In the past, the action sequences that we do, we work very closely with the stunt people," she says. "It was fabulous because I had some amazing stunt people from China, of course, and all the Mongolian stunt people, from Germany, from Kazakhstan. It was fascinating to be part of »

‘Skiptrace’ Trailer: Jackie Chan & Johnny Knoxville Join Forces in Renny Harlin’s Hong Kong Action Comedy

18 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In hindsight, the pairing feels inevitable: Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville in a buddy-cop movie. The two enact the evergreen straitlaced detective/wacky partner dynamic in Renny Harlin’s upcoming “Skiptrace,” the first trailer for which premiered today. Watch it below.

Chan plays a Hong Kong detective, while Knoxville is an American fugitive who joins up with him because of reasons. The former has played similar roles in the “Rush Hour” movies alongside Chris Tucker — and, lest we forget, Roman Polanski in a bizarre cameo at the end of the series’ third installment — as well as “Shanghai Noon” alongside Owen Wilson, of course. Bingbing Fan of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and former WWE performer Eve Torres co-star in the action comedy.

Highlighting Can’t Miss Comic-Con Panels

12 July 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What caught my eye in the massive schedule breakdown.

I’m trying to remember when nerd culture became the zeitgeist of my era… I imagine it all started with the moon landing, it being one of the greatest awe-inspiring events in human history, exponentially heightened by a medium — TV — that allowed for nearly the entire world to partake in the moment together. That was a huge win for nerds, even if the idols created from it — Armstrong and Aldrin — were hunkier and jockier than the scientists and mathematicians in the background that made it all possible. Bill Gates is the epitome of a nerd, but yet he’s super-successful; he gave Earth a device that enables me to watch pornogra… I mean, study the teachings of Jesus Christ whenever and wherever I want; and he’s infamous for his business acumen and dominating, competitive zeal. Reading comic books was always an endeavor undertaken by nerds and nerds »

London Has Fallen: Bromance at the Movies

12 July 2016 2:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Let’s face it; it’s a fairly daunting task to save the world all by yourself. Not to mention, doesn’t having a partner by your side make fighting crime and evil so much more fun? We think so.

With the upcoming release of Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen on digital platforms from 11th July, 2016 and onto Blu-ray & DVD from 18th July, 2016, the ultimate buddy duo President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his top security detail Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) are back to save the world from imminent danger once again. This time, however, the American duo is on foreign ground, in London. This is new territory for the pair but Asher and Banning remain astonishingly in sync.

Whether they will admit it or not, there does seem to be a special bond, dare we say bromance… that develops between the two men working toward a mutual mission. »

Teaser trailer for the next four Jackie Chan movies

9 July 2016 4:19 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Its been quite a while since we have had a new Jackie Chan movie, the last being the poorly received Dragon Blade. His follow up movie, the Renny Harlin directed Skiptrace was meant to be released before Christmas last year, but was delayed. It is now scheduled for July of this year. Hopefully this will receive higher praise than Dragon Blade. As well as Skiptrace, he also has another three films in the pipeline, Railroad Tigers, Kung Fu Yoga & The Foreigner. Scenes from each of these films are included in this teaser, but move along quite quickly. Other than Skiptrace, I think this may be the first footage shown of these movies. Also keep your eyes peeled for a quick blink and you'll miss...
