Awesomely Bad Trailer for Lady Bloodfight - "The Only Way Out Is To Kill Them All"

You know, it's been awhile since I've seen an awesomely bad martial arts competition movie. There was Streetfighter, Bloodsport, I even count Balls of Fury on some level. But this new film, Lady Bloodfight already has caught my interest.

Now, I'm not saying I don't enjoy terrible martial arts competition movies. I love them. You get all the weird characters with different styles and quirks. In fact, if I were to criticize the new Iron Fist Netflix series it would be that I wanted more unique challengers for Iron Fist to go up against. My favorite part of the series is when he took on the three challenges in one episode. That's the kinda thing I expect from martial arts movies. It's also the kind of thing the Iron Fist comics are leading towards.

So you can believe me when I say that just because this new film Lady Bloodfight looks terrible,

Taking a closer look at the cast of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemTaking a closer look at the cast of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemAdriana Floridia11/17/2016 9:56:00 Am

This November, we'll be meeting a whole new cast of characters from the mind of J.K. Rowling when Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits Cineplex theatres on November 18th. When Harry Potter first came out, the films didn't just give us Harry, Ron and Hermione, but also Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson.

While some of the members of this new cast are familiar faces, for many of them this is the biggest project they've yet to be a part of, and the film is bound to introduce these actors to a whole new audience. We're taking a closer look at the cast, one by one.

Five Things to Know About Fantastic Beasts Hilarious Breakout Star Dan Fogler
Move over Ron Weasley — there’s a new funny guy in the Potter-verse!

The first Harry Potter prequel, in a series of five, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters Friday and follows the life of magizoologist Newt Scamander — played by Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne — as he travels to New York with a peculiar case filled with magical creatures.

But the real fun comes from Dan Fogler’s character, Jacob Kowalski, a no-maj (the American word for Muggle or non-magic person) World War I vet who gets caught up in Scamander’s dangerous and magic filled adventures.

Ron Perlman Joins Fantastic Beast And Where To Find Them

  • TheMovieBit
While we’re still waiting for Hellboy 3, Ron Perlman is diving deep into a slightly similar world of myth and magic with The Hollywood Reporter announcing the actor as the latest cast member to sign up for Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them. Reportedly signing on to play a goblin (kinda tall there, aren’t you Ron?), the one and only Beast of the Apocalypse, and al round epic individual, is just another stellar addition to a pretty amazing cast that includes Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterson (Inherent Vice), Ezra Miller, (We Need to Talk About Kevin) Jon Voight, Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury), and Colin Farrell. Directed by Harry Potter veteran, and marking J.K. Rowling’s first stab at script writing, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them turns back the clock seventy years in the mystical world of everyone’s favourite boy wizard, as

Taken the mick: Liam Neeson to star in action-comedy The Revenger

Taken the mick: Liam Neeson to star in action-comedy The Revenger
News from Hollywood, Los Angeles: Liam Neeson is starring in a new action movie. Except it's technically an action-comedy... and it's called The Revenger.

Helmed by Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, there is no official synopsis accompanying the announcement, but it's pretty clear what is going on: the Taken star is taking the mick out of himself.

This follows in the footsteps of Neeson's glorious cameo in Ted 2, where he also has fun with his action persona. Then there's his voice role as Good Cop / Bad Cop in The Lego Movie, which may well be the best thing he's ever done, ever, ever, ever.

It's the leather-jacketed gunning-and-running that's been paying the Oscar-winning actor's bills of late, with his most recent lead roles being in Taken 3 and the all too similar Run All Night.

The writers for The Revenger are Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, the guys behind

Liam Neeson Will Be The Revenger

Liam Neeson Will Be The Revenger
We have now, apparently, reached the stage of Liam Neeson’s action career where he’s ready to take spoofing it to the next natural stage – an entire action comedy on the big screen. All right, so we don’t know for sure that it will be exactly that, but The Revenger sounds like it could be.Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer has come aboard to direct the film for Universal, based on Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant’s script. Little is known about the screenplay besides the name, but given that it comes from the men behind the first two Night At The Museum films, Hell Baby and Balls Of Fury, expect silliness. Neeson has shown he’s more than willing to be funny in the past, most famously still in Extras, but also in the likes of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Lego Movie and Non-Stop. Fleischer,

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Begins Filming

  • TheMovieBit
With a release date set for next year, filming has kicked off on Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them, with principal photography beginning in Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England today. With David Yates, already no stranger to the wizarding world having directed the last four Harry Potter movies, at the helm, this new addition to the franchise will take place seventy years before the events of the Harry Potter movies and follows preeminent magizooligist  Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) on his travels to find and document magical creatures. The last few months have seen the cast slowly grow, with Katherine Waterson (Inherent Vice), Alison Sudol (Dig), Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury), Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin), Jenn Murray (the upcoming Brooklyn), newcomer Faith Wood-Balgrove, and Colin Farrell going Redmayne for this new magical adventure. The first day of shooting brings with it a new addition to the cast,

Colin Farrell Joins Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

  • TheMovieBit
Of all the British and Irish actors to populate the Harry Potter franchise, one notable exception (well, two if you count Liam Cunningham. Which is surprise, since he’s in everything) was Colin Farrell. Well, now that has been remedied with the actor joining the cast of Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as Graves, a wizard that the movies hero, Newt Scarmander (Eddie Redmayne), in New York during his quest to find and document the various magical creatures that make their home in the wizarding world. With Redmayne and other rising stars, including Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury), Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin), Josh Gad (Frozen, Pixels), and Katherine Waterson (Inherent Vice), making up the main cast, director David Yates seems to be following the Harry Potter formula of building up the supporting cast with veteran actors and known names.

Dan Folger Joins The Cast Of Fantastic Beast And Where To Find Them

  • TheMovieBit
With production set to begin later this year, Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is slowly gathering its cast, with Deadline reporting that Dan Folger (Balls of Fury, Fansboy) has joined as the movies main Muggle (what wizards and witches refer to as normal humans, if you somehow have let Harry Potter pass you by) character, a first for the series. What’s interesting is his character’s name, Jacob, has been bandied about as the rival to Eddie Redmayne’s magizoologist Newt Scarmander. Folger had been in line for the role alongside Josh Gad, John Karsinski, and Michael Cera, which is quite strange since all are known as comedic actors, and really makes you wonder what type of villain this movie is going for. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes our way November 18th 2016.

Fantastic Beasts Adds Dan Folger as Main Muggle Character

Director David Yates continues to fill out the cast for his return to the Harry Potter universe with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and a crucial role as been filled. Once Eddie Redmayne was set as protagonist Newt Scamander—a magizoologist who makes a pitstop in New York City during his travels—we started learning about the ensemble that would surround him. One character name that kept popping up was Jacob, a character who serves as Scamander’s rival. Names like Josh Gad, Michael Cera, John Krasinski, and Dan Folger were mentioned as being in contention for the role, and now we not only know who’s playing Jacob, we’ve also learned something rather curious about him: he’s a muggle. Deadline reports that Fanboys and Balls of Fury actor Dan Folger has landed the role of Jacob, and they also note that Jacob is indeed a muggle.

The Utterly Absurd Way Christopher Walken Amuses Himself On Movie Sets

Christopher Walken, with his stone-face and signature elocution, has built an incredible mystique over the course of his career. And like another odd yet deeply beloved actor (Jeff Goldblum) he knows you are obsessed with him. And he uses this cultural fascination with his Walken ways to his own bemusement, and cake-getting. Maggie Q, Walken's co-star in the sports comedy Balls of Fury, has given the world a glimpse into the strange inner life of Christopher Walken. In her Reddit Ama to promote her upcoming series Stalker, she sang the praises of Tom Cruise, discussed her process, and spoke out for animal rights. But amid all that Maggie Q delivered a bizarre and yet believable story about how Walken amuses himself during the downtime on film shoots. Essentially, he fakes his birthday. Asked if Christopher Walken is "funny as hell" in real life, Maggie Q answered, "Christopher Walken is not

Exclusive: Dan Fogler Talks Don Peyote

Exclusive: Dan Fogler Talks Don Peyote
Dan Fogler is best known to big screen audiences for his work in a string of comedies like “School of Scoundrels,” “Good Luck Chuck,” “Balls of Fury,” “Fanboys” and “Take Me Home Tonight,” most often as the voluble best friend or a disrupter of normalcy. Of course, he’s also won a Tony Award for his performance as William Barfee in “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” and last year he helped anchor, alongside Josh Duhamel, the indie film “Scenic Route,” a spare, streamlined psychological thriller that doubled as a study in masculine relationship drift. Now, with the psychedelic comedy “Don Peyote,” Fogler has added another feather to his cap. A rollicking, ramshackle [ Read More ]

Review: 'Don Peyote' Starring & Co-Directed By Dan Fogler Is A Bust

I’ll say this for Dan Fogler’s “Don Peyote”—its title might be the finest play on “Quixote” in cinema history. (Sorry, 2007’s “Donkey Xote.”) Unfortunately, a pun-tastic title does not guarantee a winning film, as the makers of “R.I.P.D.” can attest. As star, co-writer, and co-director of “Don Peyote,” Fogler deserves credit for the sheer ambition involved in this oddball story of a stoner’s awakening. The likable actor who took home a Tony for Broadway’s “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” and has starred in a strange mix of comedies that includes everything from “Balls of Fury” to “Taking Woodstock” also called in a shockingly eclectic bunch for cameo roles: Anne Hathaway, Josh Duhamel, Topher Grace, Jay Baruchel, Wallace Shawn, Annabella Sciorra and Abel Ferrara (huh?!). But the result is an amateurish mess without a single laugh. Not. One. Laugh. That is no exaggeration.

The Bottom Shelf: Theatre Of Blood, Sparks, Wrecked and more

It's a new monthly horror column, where Nick looks at the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases. This time? Theatre Of Blood, Sparks and more...

Feature

Welcome to Den Of Geek’s newest regular feature. Leaving a monthly stain on the glowing veneer of the site’s hallowed digital halls, this blog’s humble goal is to explore cinema’s shady alleyways in search of the obscure, weird and not-so-wonderful, bad taste, or just plain bad. All clear? Then, let’s get wading.

Everyone knows that critics are a wretched, bitter cross-section of human sewage, right? In case you’d forgotten, the first few films we encounter provide evidence of these dregs of society finally getting their just desserts.

Vincent Price might be the perfect critic-slayer. Surely there can be no finer way to go than accompanied by a Shakespearian quote in the high-camp dulcet tones of a horror legend. Theatre Of Blood,

Recap: 'Survivor: Cagayan' - 'Chaos Is My Friend'
Pre-credit sequence. Let's see... It was Jeremiah who went home last? Sure. Sounds right. The Final 7 returns home. Jefra is exhausted, but she's feeling good about the decision she made to stay with Tony and that alliance. Kass is feeling smug about Spencer's Idol, which she claims she knew he had. [She did, indeed, voice those suspicions last week.] She's also feeling smug about knowing Spencer wouldn't give the Idol up, saying that a college-aged human male is "the most selfish beast on the planet." "I used my Idol and I used it wrong," Spencer laments. "Tonight we lost the battle, we have not lost the war," he insists of his dwindling alliance with Tasha. The next morning, Tree-Mail arrives and it includes billets of money. "Survivor" Auction! Trish is hungry and looking forward to eating. "Foooood!" she howls. Tony, of course, knows that the auction will also include an Immunity Challenge advantage and he's determined to get it.
