Come Thursday, July 21, Activision and developer Infinity Ward will be staging a presentation at San Diego Comic-Con about all things Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Clocking in at one hour in length, the studio is expected to cast light on “the creative process of crafting the campaign” at the heart of Infinite Warfare. Catapulting the Call of Duty series into the far-future, it’s understood that the creative team is looking to seminal war movies in the vein of Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down as inspiration.
We already know that Game of Thrones star Kit Harington will lend his likeness to the game’s chief villain, though Activision confirmed today that its collection of Hollywood talent also features Brian Bloom (The A-Team, Once Upon a Time in America), Jamie Gray Hyder (True Blood), David Harewood (Supergirl) and Jeffrey Nordling »

Way back in the hazy days of 2006, it was announced that Sylvester Stallone would be directing a remake of Charles Bronson’s classic revenge movie Death Wish, presumably stepping into the murderous boots of vigilante Paul Kersey. It was an interesting prospect, but Stallone eventually left the project. There was still life left in the remake though, and in 2012, it was resurrected once again, with Narc, Smoking Aces, and The A-Team’s Joe Carnahan on board to direct. Carnahan eventually departed, and Narcos director Gerado Naranjo cam on board. This, too, fell through, and for a few years, the project wandered aimlessly through Hollywood. It once again reared it’s head earlier this year, with Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the directing duo behind the fantastic Israeli comedy horror Big Bad Wolves, being brought on to steer new Paul Kersey, Bruce Willis, on his revenge fuelled killing spree.

Mr. T, after all of this time, still pities the fools; and there's no case that he pities them greater than that of the 2010 film adaptation of The A-Team. In fact, Mr. T recently chalked up the film's lack of success to one, key factor that was missing from the film's arsenal: the power of the T himself. During a conversation with Uproxx, the 80's icon who originated the role of B.A. Baracus had some choice remarks to make about Joe Carnahan's allegedly tepid take on the classic television show. Most importantly, Mr. T's rant about the recasting of his memorable role is an incredible, and totally believable, theory as to why the project failed to catch. His hypothesis is as follows: The A-Team movie, people would even tell you: boy did we make a mistake trying to get somebody to replace Mr. T. There.s nothing »
In a splashy Cannes deal, Netflix has pre-bought worldwide rights to upcoming thriller.
In a deal negotiated here in Cannes by CAA and sales outfit The Solution Entertainment Group, streaming giant Netflix has taken world rights - and so will fully effectively fully finance - upcoming thriller Wheelman, which will star Captain America: Civil War actor Frank Grillo.
The significant multi-million dollar deal is one of the biggest to go down at what has been a relatively sedate market.
Production is scheduled to start in autumn with Jeremy Rush lined up to direct from his screenplay about a getaway driver who ends up in a scramble to survive after a bank robbery goes horribly wrong.
Driving a car full of money and with the fate of his family on the line, the wheelman must find out who betrayed him and »

If you wish more horror films came with onomatopoetic titles, I’ve got the movie for you.
When Kevin Smith released his now -notorious horror comedy Tusk, many reviewers took issue with the ludicrous premise in which a mad scientist takes it upon himself to transform a man into a walrus. Apparently none of these critics had ever seen Bernard L. Kowalski’s 1973 horror film Sssssss—new to Blu-ray from Scream Factory—because if they had, they might have recognized that the premise of Smith’s movie had been covered nearly 30 years earlier, only with a snake instead of a walrus. It is, to put it bluntly, not a very good movie. But it is a weird one, and sometimes “weird” counts.

As we speak, fans are consuming the second season of Daredevil, the hard-hitting, gritty adaptation of the comic book superhero. In celebration of this new season, the folks over at Screen Crush thought to reminisce on times long gone, and have even dug up the old sizzle reel footage for a more mature film that never happened.
It may be hard to believe now, but not too long ago, the proposition of a quality Daredevil adaption was a tall order. The mid-2000s Ben Affleck adaptation had certainly left a bad taste in most fans' mouth, and even Fox, the studio that had the rights to the character at the time, was careful in its approach of any potential future adaptations. But of course, the big problem they were facing was time. In order to retain rights to the Daredevil character, they needed to produce a new film, and fast. »

Sony Pictures has decided to play a game of calendar shuffle, but it shouldn't affect your moviegoing plans too drastically. They are rearranging some of their biggest tentpoles to better suit their needs. Which means their 2017 release slate looks a little bit different than it did yesterday. Included in this switch-up are the highly anticipated sequel Bad Boys 3, the Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower and the live-action Barbie movie.
It was just announced last week that The Dark Tower will be shooting in South Africa this April. The movie stars Idris Elba as Roland "The Gunslinger" Deschain, Matthew McConaughey as the evil Man in black and Abbey Lee. It was originally set to debut on January 13, 2017. It will now open the week following Valentine's Day, on February 17. It will be going up against the epic Chinese co-production The Great Wall starring Matt Damon and the franchise finale The Maze Runner: The Death Cure. »

Bad Boys III is a project that's been in development for some time. Given the success of the first two films, it's a bit of a shock that it didn't get made sooner. It's only been in the past year, however, that this film has received any momentum. Around June of last year, it was confirmed that Joe Carnahan, director of such films as The A-team and The Grey, was in talks to helm the picture. Not much has been heard since then about his involvement.
The photo had the following caption from the director:
"...who is this man? ...and how bad is he? #BadBoys3 "
While I'd already considered Carnahan's involvement a foregone conclusion, we can »
