James Gunn interview: Guardians, music, Marvel and more

29 July 2014 11:55 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We talk to the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy about working with Marvel, 70s music, and the mysterious end credits stinger...

Having made his name as an indie writer and director, James Gunn was given the reins to Guardians Of The Galaxy, Marvel's first new cinematic property since 2011's Captain America. Although seen as an uncertain prospect, Guardians has received almost universally positive praise.

We caught up with Gunn to get his thoughts about adapting the Marvel Universe, listening to 1970s pop music, and what Star Wars has to do with Guardians Of The Galaxy.

So, the reviews came in last night. I assume you've had time to at least glanced at them?

I've looked fleetingly at them. I know the gist.

Pleased?

It's great! I don't know, it's weird. It's uncomfortable. I'm excited that people go to see the movie and like it. But reading reviews is weird for me. »

Kevin Feige interview: Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel films

17 July 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel Studios' boss Kevin Feige chats to us about Guardians Of The Galaxy, boutique Marvel movies, and Jason Statham...

Interview

Around these parts, Kevin Feige is a man who needs little introduction. As the president of Marvel Studios he holds more power and cinematic sway over the hearts and minds of geeks worldwide than most. For Feige is the man who’s in charge of the Marvel movie master plan that has seen the studio go from taking a boom or bust gamble when it made the first Iron Man, to box office dominance and critical success, while achieving the biggest and most unique multi-film crossover ever when The Avengers hit the big screen back in 2012.

As if that culmination wasn’t enough, we’re now in the middle of a second phase of films that has included a third Iron Man and second outings for both Thor (in »

The Vatican Tapes Won't Be Played Until 2015

15 July 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Demon this. Possession that. Even the devil is overstaying his welcome at the box office lately. Maybe that's why Lionsgate has decided to hold back its latest evil-laden film, The Vatican Tapes, until February 27, 2015.

The Vatican Tapes is directed by Mark Neveldine (Crank). The demonic possession drama stars Michael Pena, Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, Cas Anvar, Peter Andersson, and Olivia Dudley.

Synopsis:

The Vatican Tapes follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes, who accidentally cuts her finger and ends up in the emergency room. Infection leads to erratic behavior, and she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Priests examine Holmes and believe she is possessed, but when The Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined.

Rupert Grint interview: Postman Pat, Knightmare, Statham

21 May 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One of the stars of the new Postman Pat movie, Rupert Grint, chats to us about the film, Harry Potter, Knightmare and more...

Interview

I felt sorry for Rupert Grint. Just an hour before he ended up speaking to me, he'd been interviewed live on air on Radio 2. Then he ended up in a basement of a London office, clutching a coffee, with me. While I had him trapped though, I got ten minutes of his time, and here's how it went...

You're clearly a much younger, more attractive and more learned man than me, and I expect our experiences of childrens' television is very different. Postman Pat is clearly a big thing for you, but what were the TV shows that helped define your youth? What were you watching as you grew up?

I really identified with characters that did things that it was feasible to achieve. Fireman Sam! »

First trailer lands for The Transporter TV show

14 May 2014 10:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's no Jason Statham as The Transporter heads for the small screen. Here's the trailer for TNT's new show...

Trailer

As you may be aware, on the occasions when we're let into a room with famous people, we have a habit of asking them what their favourite Jason Statham movie is. Two answers keep bubbling to the top. One of them is Crank, and one of them is The Transporter. Neither choice is surprising, given the majesty of them both.

The Transporter, however, is continuing in two new directions, both of which are scandalously Statham-less. There's a reboot of the films for a start, which will basically be a genesis of The Transporter trilogy. And then TNT is bringing The Transporter to TV, with Chris Vance in the lead role.

9 potentially great movie sequels teased but never made

22 April 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie 23 Apr 2014 - 06:54

We take a look back at the geek movies that have hinted at sequels that were never made, and we'd really like to see...

Nb: The following contains inevitable spoilers. If you haven't seen a film in a particular entry, feel free to skip to the next one.

In some cases, it comes as a relief when a threatened sequel fails to materialise. The end of the infamous Mac And Me, for example, sees its family of cretinous aliens drive off in a pink Cadillac, a speech bubble chillingly telling us, "We'll be back!" Thankfully, Mac And Me 2 has yet to materialise, despite the original film's near-legendary status.

Every so often, though, we'll come across a movie that strongly hints at more adventures to come, but for a variety of reasons - usually financial ones - the sequel never got made. To illustrate this, »

Marc Webb interview: Spider-Man, hidden set cameras

14 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Simon Brew 15 Apr 2014 - 06:49

The director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Marc Webb, tells us about the film, and the lengths people go to to find out what's going on...

Marc Webb's third film as director - following (500) Days Of Summer and The Amazing Spider-Man - sees him return for the second part of his webslinger trilogy. He was in London last week to talk about the film, and we chatted to him about the first film, directing action, Statham, and the day a drone camera landed on set...

I was a bit torn on your first Spider-Man film, if I'm being truthful with you, but I enjoyed this one a lot more. I couldn't help but think back to Tim Burton, when he made Batman and Batman Returns. He always said that his second Batman film as being far more of his film than the one before. »

'3 Days to Kill' Review: 10 Things to Know About Kevin Costner's New Thriller

20 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It used to be that action blockbusters, populated by familiar names and high profile directors, would be scheduled for the key summer and Christmas slots. Nowadays, though, those seasonal high traffic areas are reserved for four quadrant spectacles designed to appeal to grandma, little Timmy, and everyone in between. That means that a glut of these movies find themselves pushed to the margins of the calendar -- the late summer and early-in-the-year slots that are seen as somewhat less desirable. One such movie is "3 Days to Kill," starring Kevin Costner and directed by one-time big name McG.

In the movie, Costner plays an assassin who is diagnosed with a terminal illness, forcing him to try and reconnect with his petulant teenage daughter (Hailee Steinfeld) and estranged wife (Connie Nielsen) before he dies. Oh, and he is also being contracted to finish the job that he wasn't able to complete due to his illness. »

Ed Skrein Replaces Jason Statham In Transporter 4

10 February 2014 8:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Jason Statham is one of the most widely known action stars in the world today, it wasn’t that long ago when he first arrived on the scene. After delivering memorable performances in Guy Ritchie’s crime capers Snatch and Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, it was really The Transporter, back in 2002, that elevated him to action stardom. In subsequent Transporter films, the Crank franchise and dozens of stand-alone action flicks since, he’s refined his niche, but that film truly marked his breakout. Though it’s been five years since Transporter 3 made bank with $108 million, the success of the series has led EuropaCorp towards rebooting the franchise with three new films. Now, likely hoping to kick-start another young actor’s career, EuropaCorp has tapped Game of Thrones actor Ed Skrein to take the lead role in Transporter 4.

‘Transporter’ Reboot Replaces Jason Statham with ‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Ed Skrein

8 February 2014 9:52 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The 2002 film The Transporter saw Jason Statham stake his claim as possibly the best bald action star since Bruce Willis (well, maybe tied with Vin Diesel). After making a big impression in Guy Ritchie’s first two films (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch), he would go on to define his career with the Transporter and Crank action franchises, and audiences are now used to seeing the release of at least one Statham action film per year.

The first three Transporter movies, written and produced by Taken mastermind Luc Besson, became bigger and bigger hits around the world, with The Transporter 3 cracking $108 million globally. And while the Cinemax spin-off Transporter: The Series was not a hit, TNT ...

James McAvoy Says Jason Statham Delivered The "Best Line I've Ever Heard In A Film"

7 February 2014 12:32 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For the grief we sometimes give Jason Statham, let's face it: he knows what his strengths are, he plays to them, and he delivers exactly what fans expect each time out. He makes what is often very hard look pretty easy. And while critics may not usually take kindly to his movies, there's one actor out there giving him due props: James McAvoy. Den Of Geek closed their recent interview with McAvoy—who has previously praised Statham calling him "the most physically impressive actor I've ever seen"—by asking him what his favorite movie by the action star was. And the answer is pretty great: Crank, because he got the line, "Does it look like I've got c*nt written on my head?" and that is the best line I've ever heard in a film. What's your favorite Statham movie and line of dialogue? Let us know below. »

Jason Statham Will Be Back For The Mechanic 2, But Not The Transporter 4

7 February 2014 12:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Statham is one of the most reliable action movie draws in cinema today, even if he has only anchored modest hits that do not rely on more than his glare, deep voice and physical stamina. He is a much bigger star internationally than in North America, which explains why films like Crank and The Transporter got sequels. However, one of his lesser successes, 2011′s The Mechanic, is also moving forward with a follow-up.

German director Dennis Gansel (The Wave) is looking to helm The Mechanic 2 with Statham back in the leading role as assassin Arthur Bishop. As you may recall, Bishop is a contract killer who puts a special emphasis on covering up his attacks with efficiency, aligning with a strict code of conduct. Bishop has much in common with Statham’s Frank Martin from the Transporter movies and the derivative character could explain why The Mechanic was a »
