The Ten Best Action Movies of the New Millennium

12 May 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Who doesn’t love a good action movie? They’re among the most fun that Hollywood has to offer, particularly when they’re of a high quality. Later on this week, a reportedly amazing new one in Mad Max: Fury Road is hitting theaters, so to prep us all for that experience (I see it later on today, so yay for that), I wanted to do a countdown of the recent best that the genre has to offer. Essentially, every action flick since 2000 was eligible, and I whittled that down to a top ten list. It’s hardly the definitely “new millennium action movie” list, but I think it’s a pretty solid one, to say the least. You’ll be able to see the list below, which could very well be amended once Mad Max: Fury Road comes to town… Here now are my picks for the ten best »

"Thor: Ragnarok" - Updates

6 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ the origins of Marvel Comics' super-villain 'Ragnarok', appearing in Marvel Studios' next "Thor" solo movie "Thor: Ragnarok", connecting with the "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" and "Captain America: Civil War":

'Ragnarok', created by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame,  is a supervillain debuting in Marvels "Civil War" #3 (July 2006) as a 'cyborg clone' of Thor.

"...when 'Thor' was missing in action, presumed dead, 'Tony Stark' took one of his hairs, which he had retained from the first meeting of the 'Avengers' and cloned the 'Asgardian' DNA with Stark technology. This resulted in the creation of a new, cyborg Thor. 

"Ragnarok has all the powers and knowledge of Thor including super-strength, extensive combat knowledge, stamina, high resistance to physical injury, immunity to Earthly diseases, superhuman agility and reflexes.

"Ragnarok's hammer, though not the enchanted 'Mjolnir', is constructed of a 'vibranium' and 'adamantium' alloy, able to absorb and discharge lightning, »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson perfected the skid for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

30 April 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When making a sequel to a successful film, one of the things that happens is the introduction of new characters. When you're making a sequel to one of the most successful films of all time, though, the actors playing those new characters would be well within their rights to be completely terrified and overwhelmed by the experience. In the case of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, though, they appear to have stepped right into their roles as Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, known collectively as "the twins" and individually as Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. I spoke to the both of them on-set when I was in the UK, and then again at the recent press day after seeing the film, and one of the main topics of discussion was the emotional side of stepping into a series this iconic. I've been interviewing Taylor-Johnson since the original "Kick-Ass," and it's been »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

John Wick Helmers To Adapt Bloodshot Comic For Sony’s New Cinematic Universe

21 April 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the power play between Marvel and DC Comics’ respective cinematic universes continues to vie for your attention, another competitor is about to enter the ring. Valiant Entertainment has struck a deal with Sony Pictures to create a new cinematic universe that’s set to be based on its own series of comic book titles, starting with Bloodshot in 2017 and ending with crossover title Harbinger Wars.

John Wick creative duo David Leitch and Chad Stahelski will direct Bloodshot from a script adapted by Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and Eric Heisserer (2011’s The Thing). And if that wasn’t impressive enough, you can also include producers Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass) and Neal Moritz (Fast & Furious franchise) in that veritable list of names.

Created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton, Bloodshot revolves around a soldier whose corpse is revived by a secret government agency and reprogrammed as a relentless killing machine. »

Suit Up for Kingsman: The Secret Service Blu-Ray in June

21 April 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Easily one of the best films of the year so far, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is coming to blu-ray in just a couple months and Fox has revealed all the special features you can expect upon its release.  Come inside for all the details!

When I first saw Kingsman in theaters, I called it "the first genuine must-see movie of the year" and my opinion on that hasn't changed in the least.  It's an incredible film that manages to hit all the right notes.  If you missed it in theaters (for shame), or simply can't wait to see it again, Fox has revealed the details on the upcoming blu-ray release on June 9th-or digitally on May 15th.  

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites you to join Kingsman: The Secret Service when it hits Digital HD™ May 15 and Blu-ray™ and DVD June 9. Matthew Vaughn, director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

Matthew Vaughn to Direct Flash Gordon Remake

17 April 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After directing such hits as "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "X-Men: First Class" and "Kick-Ass," director Matthew Vaughn is now negotiating to direct his next movie, a remake of "Flash Gordon." The character was created in 1934 by iconic artist Alex Raymond. Along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, he ends up on the planet Mongo fighting its tyrannical ruler, Ming the Merciless. Vaughn's film will not be based on the 1980 movie, which is best known for its Queen soundtrack, inspiring George Lucas to make "Star Wars," and more recently, being constantly referenced in "Ted." Instead, the film will be based on the classic "Flash Gordon" comic strip. Back in 2009, Sam Worthington (Avatar) was attached to star in the movie, which was set to be directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies). »

Flash arghhhhh!? Is Matthew Vaughn rebooting Flash Gordon a good idea?

16 April 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Week in geek: The Kick-Ass and Kingsman director is rumoured to be revamping the classic 80s cheesefest. But can you replace Brian Blessed, Queen and Razzie-nommed Sam J Jones and still save every one of us?

Gordon’s Alive! And he’s coming back to the big screen in a new effort from Matthew Vaughn, the British director of Kick-Ass, Stardust and Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The news that Vaughn is in talks to direct a new take on Flash Gordon, the 1930s comic book hero who famously inspired Mike Hodges’s preposterously camp 1980 film, has been rather overshadowed by this week’s revelations about the forthcoming Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel movies. But with Kingsman likely to end up one of 2015’s biggest box-office hits, maybe we should be taking the idea of blasting off once again for planet Mongo a little more seriously.

Flash Gordon May Have Found The Perfect Director

15 April 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After news from a year ago pointed to a revival of the classic comic-strip-inspired property, it seems Twentieth Century Fox is indeed reviving Flash Gordon. Based on who they’re looking to put in the director’s chair, the film could be in solid hands that know the action/sci-fi genre well. It's being reported that Matthew Vaughn may be the man to be the savior of the savior of the universe. According to a scoop from The Hollywood Reporter, Vaugh is currently in negotiations to take the helm of the upcoming reboot of the venerable Flash Gordon. Having firmly established himself as the visionary behind X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and the recent dark horse of a hit, Kingsman: The Secret Service, he could bring his directorial skills to the planet Mongo, a setting that combines magic and mysticism with off-the-wall futuristic technology.

Aah! Matthew Vaughn In Talks To Helm ‘Flash Gordon’

15 April 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You may remember that Fox Studios picked up Alex Raymond’s comic strip hero, Flash Gordon over a year ago. Well, now it looks like the project is gathering momentum as Matthew Vaughn is currently in negotiations to direct.

Vaughn seems like a great choice too, with Kick-ass, X-men: First Class and recent hit, Kingsman: The Secret Service under his superhero utility belt. The character Flash Gordon dates back to the ’30s, and spawned a wide range of media, including films, TV, new comic renditions, and of course that Queen song.

Star Trek 3 writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have penned the script, while John Davis and King Features are producing.

Matthew Vaughn is the frontrunner to direct a new Flash Gordon movie.

20th Century Fox is developing a big-screen revival of the science fiction comic strip, which has been adapted many times for the screen since the 1930s.

Vaughn is now in formal talks with the studio to bring a new version of Flash Gordon to life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The revival is being written by science fiction scribes John D Payne and Patrick McKay.
