Frank The Bastard? Try again. Maybe a more apt title would be Frank The Underwhelming? Frank The Undercooked? Frank The Utterly Lifeless Cinematic Endeavor?
The actual title of Brad Coley’s weightless drifter story suggests a rural nightmare akin to something more sinister. I’m not saying such a title suggests Jeepers Creepers material, but as far as bastards go, Frank is no Yellow Bastard (Sin City). Hell – he’s not even Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. Frank is a fraudulent foe in the face of Coley’s familial fiasco (holy eff), and the whole thing comes together like a mysterious fable told by your absent-minded granny. This one’s more like a bedtime story, lulling viewers to sleep with a particularly uninteresting “mystery.”
It all starts when a divorced city girl named Clair (Rachel Miner) heads home to Edgeport, Maine, determined to uncover the truth about her mother’s unfortunate death. »

With the Television Critics Association tour continuing today, one panelist that has been doing interviews has been none other than filmmaker Robert Rodriguez who has been promoting the second season of his "From Dusk Till Dawn" TV series.
Collider spoke with the "Sin City" helmer and managed to ask him about the live-action film based on the classic "Jonny Quest" cartoon that he has in the works. At last report Rodriguez would be directing the film as well as working on the script alongside Terry Rossio based on a draft by Dan Mazeu. Asked about where the project stands he says:
"I'm turning in the script right now. I've just been working on the script. I love Jonny Quest. The originals are so cool. They were really ahead of their time. I grew up with them because they used to play in syndication, and my kids still love them.
They're action-packed. »

The landscape of cinema today is a vastly different and distinctly less-original one than previous decades. Itʼs hard to put your finger on exactly when the tide began to turn, but it’s safe to admit we live in an age of sequel-mania.
Currently there are a staggering 142 sequels either in-production or development across numerous studios. Some are justified and worthy of warranting second instalments, whilst others will strike you as desperate attempts at squeezing out that last remaining trickle of money from a dying franchise.
Here is a selection of the most sh*tty and unnecessary sequels (possibly given the the protracted production of some) heading our way in the next few years.
The original was innovative and a blood-splattered shot of adrenaline. »

Charles Dance (TV’s Game of Thrones, The Imitation Game) and Rutger Hauer (Sin City, Batman Begins) star in this epic adventure about a 17th century Dutch admiral, who must lead his fleet to defend his homeland from the terrorising forces of England.
Admiral Michiel de Ruyter is the most famous, and one of the most skilled admirals in Dutch history, most celebrated for his role in the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 17th century. He was held in the highest esteem by his sailors and soldiers, who used the term Bestevaêr (Grandfather) for him, as a result of his disregard for hierarchy and his refusal to back away from risky and bold undertakings despite his usually reserved and calculated nature.
We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win Admiral on DVD due to be released on 3rd August 2015. The winner will also receive a LG 42″ inch entry Led full HD TV, »

Gangster movies have been entertaining audiences since the inception of cinema. A well-constructed gangster film can attract respectable actors, reap critical praise, and accrue the life-long love of fans in a way that few other genres can. Mean Streets, Infernal Affairs, and Goodfellas are all classic films that continue to resonate with audiences long after their theatrical runs. While most favorite gangster movie conversations include the usual round up of The Godfather, Scarface and The Departed, there is a little known British film that warrants a place in the conversation. Back in 1990, director Peter Medak’s biographical crime/drama film The Krays, flew under the radar of everyone but the most hardcore gangster-flick nerds. With the upcoming film Legend (featuring Tom Hardy in the role of both Kray twins) just on the horizon, it seemed like an appropriate time »

When Céline Dion announced she would be going on hiatus from her Las Vegas residency because her husband's, René Angélil's, health had taken a turn again, fans didn't know whether or not she would return to the stage. Thankfully her husband's throat cancer, which he has been battling for 15 years, seems to have improved so she will resume her residency in August, but Dion's, 47, decision to move her career to Sin City hasn't always been met with the utmost enthusiasm. "A lot of people, especially in the industry, they thought it was a very very high risk," she explained to NBC's Nightly News' Joe Fryer. "I remember hearing that the boat is going to sink »
According to The Wrap, Benicio del Toro has been offered the chance to play the villain in 2017's Star Wars: Episode VIII. There's no word on who he might be playing at this early stage, but him joining this world would bring even more diversity to a series of films which were previously very white to say the least! That aside though and del Toro was great as a villain in the likes of Savages and Sin City and would no doubt make for a very interesting foe for the heroes in the Rian Johnson helmed follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What this means for Kylo Ren and some of the other baddies we've heard about who will factor into J.J. Abrams' upcoming movie isn't clear, but it sounds like it might be a pretty sizeable role. Whether or not he'll return as The Collector in »
Multiple sources are telling TheWrap that Benicio del Toro, who won an Oscar for his performance in Traffic, has been offered the main villainous role in Star Wars: Episode VIII, which Rian Johnson (Looper) has closed a deal to direct for Lucasfilm and Disney.
Discussions are still in early stages for the acclaimed actor, who is well-versed in everything Disney thanks to his part as The Collector in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but execs are reportedly euphoric about handing over the role of a key antagonist to del Toro.
Disney and Lucasfilm went after an A-list actor for the role – Joaquin Phoenix was also a contender, but he passed on the role. Interestingly, del Toro was at one point rumored to be playing antagonist Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness – but we all remember how that one turned out.

Noir comes to Holby as the veteran hospital drama tries its hand at something a little out of the ordinary. But can such tricksy pastiches revive a flagging patient?
Casualty will be 30 next year. How much longer the Saturday-night medical soap can soldier on must be a question asked regularly in top-level BBC pow-wows: so is its current yen for special, spoof and spin-off episodes a celebratory show of strength or a cry for help?
This week’s edition is entitled Holby Sin City – written in an opening caption using a crimson font mimicking the Sin City graphic novels and 2005 film. The episode is entirely taken up with fussy registrar Ethan (George Rainsford) and his interaction with long-term patient and femme fatale Bonnie (Renee Castle), a 1940s-style sex bomb who might have committed murder. Rain lashes the hitherto rarely glimpsed neon mean streets of downtown Holby. It’s what the »

“The Walking Dead” shippers might still be lamenting the fact that Daryl Dixon and Beth may never be a thing — on-screen or off — but Norman Reedus’s fans will get to watch him roll the dice on romance with another beautiful blonde co-star very soon. Only, instead of donning his signature shoulder-slung crossbow, he’ll be rocking a cowboy hat. And rather than riding through the corpse-laden streets of the rural south on a motorcycle, he’ll be traipsing through the very much alive Sin City under some blazing neon lights. Also, from the looks of this first-glimpse image Reedus and Diane Kruger shared of their forthcoming drama pic together on Wednesday (June 24), he’ll be ditching all the death stares and silent solemness for s »

Peter Joseph’s highly anticipated new film series inches towards its 2016 release.
By Alex Simon
In a time of great social strife and growing inequality and public outcry, it’s no wonder Peter Joseph's work has gained more and more prominence in the counter-culture each year. Love him or hate him, Joseph continues to challenge the “zeitgeist”, leading the charge towards a new society. Art is his weapon… and the thousands of dedicated fans don’t hurt either.
Peter Joseph is a producer who created the Zeitgeist Film Trilogy, a series of films critical of society and culture. These works exploded online starting in 2007 with millions of views and can now be found in major media outlets such as Netflix. His third film, Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, had the largest grassroots, non-profit theatrical release in history, with almost 350 screenings in 60 countries in 25 languages.
