Dustin Nguyen Faces Off With RZA In The Man With The Iron Fists 2 Trailer

29 November 2014 1:30 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Though RZA's directorial and starring effort The Man With The Iron Fists under performed at the box office it still did enough business for Universal to quietly give the go ahead to a straight-to-video sequel with the directing duties this time handed off to Dtv stalwart Roel Reine, the Dutch helmer responsible for a pair of Death Race sequels along with Scorpion King 3. This is not to say things can't be solidly entertaining, though, as the addition of Twitch fave Dustin Nguyen in a key role is always a plus as is Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa. And the trailer looks pretty solid as well. Take a look below!...

3 October 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Screamfest La continues to heat up, despite the weather cooling down. Devon Downs and Kenny Gage's (Raze) Parlor will play at this year's festival. In fact, this film will have its World Premiere there, this October 14th, 2014. The film takes a note from Eli Roth's Hostel (2005) as several vacationers are trapped and tortured, in Eastern Europe. Parlor centrally stars Robert Lasardo (Death Race) Anthony Del Negro (Deep in the Darkness) and Jordan James Smith. A preview of the film's launch is hosted here. In the story, six friends head out to Eastern Europe for fun, partying and good times. The dark clouds descend when they encounter a strange tattoo artist. Now, they find themselves trapped deep, below ground. Escape is out of the question, but torture is on the schedule. The film's first poster is hosted here. The graphic shows actor Lasardo as the Artist. He has already dipped his inker into blood. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

The top 25 greatest Jason Statham films

14 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...

For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”

Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »

‘Live’ Review: A Death Race Sponsored By Hooters

19 July 2014 10:45 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Fantasia International Film Festival 2014 runs July 17 to August 6. Follow all of our coverage here. Naoto Tamura (Yuki Yamada) is a bit of a dick. He’s obnoxious and indifferent to everyone around him including his hard-working mother, but he takes his attitude one step too far when he lashes out at her. While on his own a short while later he receives a package with a novel titled “Live” in it timed to a phone call and a video. His mother has been abducted, and she’ll be killed unless Naoto participates in and wins the caller’s elaborate “death triathlon.” He sets off to the first location only to discover that he’s not alone. A dozen other people, each frantic and glued to their cell phones, are also in the race. Other players lessen Naoto’s odds of winning, but so do the various obstacles put in their place including, but »

The Purge: Anarchy Review

16 July 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite all the hatred surrounding James DeMonaco’s original home invasion thriller, I ended up giving an approving nod to The Purge based on tight, tense horror featuring a psychotically hypnotic twist. People ranted and raved about how the movie missed a major opportunity by caging all purging in a barricaded house while chaos presumably erupted outside, but thanks to a limited budget that showed tremendous profits, The Purge: Anarchy was greenlit, and DeMonaco embraced his dystopian America in all its pulpy, purgin’ glory.

But what about those horror fans who actually dug Ethan Hawke’s last stand? Where The Purge disappointed adrenaline junkies expecting some bloodthirsty insanity, this year’s sequel does the complete opposite by erasing all moments of horror in favor of gritty, 80s style action. These two films couldn’t be any tonally different, but will enough jaded viewers take another chance on DeMonaco’s sequel? »

Paul W.S. Anderson Talks Filming His Volkswagen Commercials, How the Process Differs from Films, and More

3 July 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

While you might know Paul W.S. Anderson from the movies he's directed like Resident EvilEvent HorizonDeath Race and Pompeii, over the last few years he's also been doing something you may find more surprising: directing award winning commercials.  Like his movies, his commercials are loaded with action.  In the first of three new ads for Vw, Anderson takes the tag line "made for real life, not the movies" and offers a tongue-in-cheek take on car commercials/high-octane action movies.  After you see the ad (which is after the jump), the tag line will make a lot more sense.  In addition to this ad called "Bus," the second ad "Chase" and third one "Explosion" will be playing in theaters in the UK in front of movies starting July 11th and September 12th and will be released online shortly after. Recently, I got on the phone with Anderson to talk about his commercial work. »

Start your engines – ‘Death Race 4′ revs up!

6 June 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It’s not often we run news stories here on Nerdly but when it involves one of my favourite writer/directors working today there’s absolutely no way I’m not sharing this with you guys. So what’s the news?

Well Tony Giglio, director of one of the best films of last year – Extraction (think of it as the American successor to The Raid) – has returned, as screenwriter, to the franchise which he managed to successfully reboot on DVD and, with his script for the third film, surpass the original movie… I’m talking Death Race. And more specifically Death Race 4.

I’ll let this image, which Giglio tweeted earlier today, do all the talking… And it goes without saying I’m super-excited to see where the franchise is headed after the amazing third film.

No Respect: Paul W.S. Anderson Breaks Down the Art of Over-the-Top Action Scenes

28 May 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you’re looking for a real underrated genre auteur — a guy who makes a particular kind of populist movie and gets very little critical respect for it — Paul W.S. Anderson is your man. From the gaming-inspired action-fests Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil, to the post-apocalyptic Jason Statham car flick Death Race, to the down-and-dirty cult sci-fi horror classic Event Horizon, Anderson very consciously makes movies you’re supposed to scream at — in delight, horror, vengeful wrath; you name it. His is a very visceral kind of cinema: It requires a lot of precision and care, but is also perceived as lowbrow and often ignored by critics. This year’s epic Pompeii 3-D is one of his most ambitious films yet, but it’s still very much his: It’s got over-the-top bad guys, beautiful heroes, big, un-nuanced emotions, gruesome fight scenes, and, of course, a gloriously explosive third act »

Day four brings us to the Horror Awards Brunch, Big Wheel Death Race, a hotel history and ghost tour, and screenings of The Sacrament, What We Do In The Shadows, shorts programs, and too much for one person to ever attend.

There is something frightening going on in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. The second annual Stanley Film Fest kicks off at the historic Stanley Hotel tomorrow and it is scary how good the lineup is. On top of great flicks, the lineup includes a ton of cool events that promise to put Stanley up there with Fantastic Fest on the fun-o-meter.

‘Resident Evil 6′ Subtitle And Returning Cast Member Revealed

22 April 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As a big fan of Sony and Screen GemsResident Evil franchise, it was disappointing to learn that the sixth instalment in the Horror/Science Fiction series will not reach its September 2014 release date. After the mammoth cliffhanger left at the conclusion of 2012′s Resident Evil: Retribution it was inevitable that a further sequel was in the pipeline, however it was merely a question of when it would hit theatres.

Now that series director (and husband of series star Milla Jovovich) Paul W.S. Anderson has finished work on his disaster epic Pompeii, he has revealed that work has begun on the sixth Resident Evil film. At a 3D film summit for the Beijing International Film Festival, the Death Race director has been quoted as referring to the next instalment in the franchise as Rising Resident Evil (or more likely a mistranslation of Resident Evil: Rising). Anderson also confirmed that »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2011

12 March 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Mar 2014 - 05:44

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...

Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.

Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »
