New on DVD/Blu-ray: Getaway (2013)

24 November 2013 8:35 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Courtney Solomon’s “Getaway” is not to be confused with Sam Peckinpah’s 1972 movie “The Getaway”, or the 1994 Roger Donaldson remake starring Alec Baldwin, or the more recent 2009 thriller “A Perfect Getaway” by David Twohy. 2013′s “Getaway” is more “Fast and Furious” than caper film, and depending on your need for speed — you have one, right? — the film might just be up your alley. Just in case you fall into that category, “Getaway” speeds onto DVD/Blu-ray this November 26th. Former race car driver Brent Magna (Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake, taking it and its unwitting owner (Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage. The best part about Courtney Solomona’s vehicular thriller is, without a doubt, watching Ethan Hawke »

Chris Hemsworth: being a God

18 October 2013 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Summer Bay to Asgard, he's in demand from directors such as Michael Mann and Jj Abrams, but he'll give the best part of the next decade to being Marvel's hammer-throwing superhero

Chris Hemsworth, Aka Thor, God of Thunder, crown prince of Asgard, calls me from the M25. It's 6pm, and he's just wrapped for the day on Ron Howard's In The Heart Of The Sea, a true story about a ship destroyed by a sperm whale in 1820. It's shooting at Leavesden Studios, and Hemsworth is in the car home to London, where he and his family have been living for the past few years while he's been making movies, including last month's F1 drama Rush. He'll be here into the spring too, for Avengers: Age Of Ultron. "It's the new Hollywood," he says of Greater London, taking care not to reference the weather.

Rated: Riddick (2013) - Fun Action, Just This Side of Mindless

9 September 2013 12:48 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Earlier last week (sorry for the late posting!) I got the chance to check out Universal’s Riddick, the latest entry into the Chronicles of Riddick franchise that everyone assumed was dead after a poor second film.  Does this latest film manage to recapture the magic that made everyone fall in love with the titular character to begin with?  Or does it fall short?  Come inside to check out my thoughts on the film.

The Basics

Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a »

Director David Twohy Gets Bloody With ‘Riddick’

5 September 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Riddick is clearly a passion project for writer/director David Twohy. The third entry in the series took its sweet time arriving to theaters, following 2004′s underwhelming The Chronicles of Riddick, but while that sequel has its fan, it didn’t stay in touch with what arguably made the first movie (Pitch Black) so appealing. Riddick isn’t a blockbuster character but an antihero monster slayer. We see the character return to those simple animalistic traits in the new film where he faces off against a batch of mercenaries and monsters on an unknown planet. But it wasn’t easy getting there. Twohy more than likely could have made a bigger sequel with a PG-13 slapped on, but he set his sights on a dirty R-rated Riddick film. And we’re all the better for it. Here’s our chat with Riddick director David Twohy: Both A Perfect Getaway and Riddick seem like a “back to »

Film Review: ‘Riddick’

4 September 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Having been left for dead in more ways than one after the critical and commercial failure of 2004’s “The Chronicles of Riddick,” Vin Diesel’s futuristic fugitive Richard B. Riddick gets his lean, mean, R-rated mojo back for “Riddick,” an improbable but very enjoyable sequel that recaptures much of the stripped-down intensity of Diesel and director David Twohy’s franchise starter “Pitch Black” (while treating “Chronicles” like the dream season of “Dallas”). Once again pitting Diesel’s eponymous anti-hero against human and alien adversaries on a rugged desert planet, this exuberantly gory chase pic won’t orbit the same box office galaxy as the star’s “Fast & Furious” series, but will have no trouble recouping its reported $38 million budget (one-third the cost of “Chronicles”).

In an image that can be seen as a metaphor for the entire Riddick franchise, the new film opens with Diesel emerging from under a pile »

Riddick is back...and angry in three new clips

4 September 2013 8:33 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Our favourite anti-hero and survivalist Riddick (Vin Diesel) has awoken in a hostile world of lethal alien predators in his latest on-screen chapter, Riddick, opening in theatres on Friday.

Following in the footsteps of Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, this new movie picks up with Riddick fighting for his survival after being left for dead on a desolate and sun-scorched planet by the Necromancers.  Now finding himself a target for bounty hunters, figures from his past will play a role in his ultimate act of revenge.

Karl Urban, Bokeem Woodbine and Katee Sackhoff  appear alongside Diesel in this latest movie, directed by David Twohy who helmed the previous Riddick movies and thriller A Perfect Getaway.

The Weekend Warrior: Riddick

3 September 2013 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Summer's officially over and fall's here, and while the box office tends to take a major nosedive .round about now, there's always a chance of a breakout hit, especially with summer ending on such a weak note.

New Featurette for Riddick

29 August 2013 10:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal has released new featurette for the sci-fi/action film, Riddick.  It opens with a slight contradiction between Vin Diesel and director David Twohy.  Diesel says "We always wanted it to be three films," but then Twohy follows with "It was a question of where do we go next?"  The implication of a trilogy signals that they knew how it would be resolved, but clearly that wasn't the case.  That's not necessarily a bad thing.  Just because a film is planned that doesn't mean the final result will be good and vice versa.  This featurette contains new footage, and does a good job of laying out the story without giving too much away, although there is no alien-puppy-saving. Hit the jump to check out the featurette.  The film also stars Katee SackhoffDavid BautistaJordi MollàMatt NableBokeem WoodbineRaoul TrujilloNolan Gerard Funk, and Karl UrbanRiddick opens September 6th. »

Universal has released the first clip from Riddick.  The film finds Vin Diesel’s titular character being hunted by mercenaries, and once again, they’re hopelessly outmatched by the anti-hero who can see in the dark.  But the mercs and their bounty are forced to team up when lethal alien monsters attack.  I'm looking forward to this movie, and most of this clip is the Riddick-versus-monsters stuff we expected.  But there's a moment near the end of the clip that had me absolutely cracking up.  You'll know it when you see it.
