Kingsman 2: Matthew Vaughn Teases Julianne Moore's Poppy As A Stepford Wives-Style Villain

14 July 2017 7:23 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service was a film that embraced the ridiculous. It had over-the-top violence, more f-bombs than you can shake a stick at, and perhaps one of the most interesting and memorable villains this side of a spy movie. Samuel L. Jackson’s Valentine was one who could have easily played into a cliché, but he rose above and beyond the rich megalomaniac. Here was someone who was likable, had a deep belief in his cause, and who couldn’t tolerate the sight of blood or violence, despite the fact that he was working to unleash unparalleled violence on the world.

As great as he was, it only made things much more difficult for the film series going forward. Just how in the world would they top Jackson’s Valentine in the sequel, Kingsman: Golden Circle? This is a concern even director »

Game of Thrones” Season 7 is just days away from premiering on HBO, but the future of the fantasy series has become greater than just the final two seasons of the George R.R. Martin adaptation.

Much has been made about age differences in Hollywood relationships.

Watch a McLovin Super Fan Get the Ultimate Superbad Surprise

3 July 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

McLovin may be a dumb made up name, but ten years removed from Superbad, people still really connect to the character that was brought to life by Christopher Mintz-Plasse. What was his very first movie role went on to become one of the most iconic characters from a modern comedy. So much so that fans will print out McLovin signs at music festivals to carry around. But what happens when the actor who actually played McLovin shows up and sees the person carrying that sign? Wonder no longer. It happened.

Daily Mail was able to capture the pretty priceless moment. Superbad star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who brought Fogel, aka McLovin, to life, was attending a festival and enjoying himself. He was sporting a tank top, beard, cap and sunglasses, so he was pretty unrecognizable. That's what made it so great when he approached a fan who made a McLovin sign, which »

‘Reborn #6′ Review (Image Comics)

16 June 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Mark Millar | Art by Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion | Published by Image Comics

Looking at the creative team and concept of Reborn it had the ability to be a great series but it never reached the height of its potential. While reading this series I can see the wheels spinning in Miller’s head with all the different concepts he is coming up with.  Where the issue lies is how some of those ideas get lost in the shuffle and not fully developed.

It starts with the basic concept of the series. How life after death is this crazy fantasy world where your past deeds impact the type of person you develop into. There has been such an inconsistency with that idea it is difficult to determine if there is some sort of mystery that will better explain everything or it is just sloppy writing. To Miller’s credit, »

The Wall: Aaron Taylor-Johnson On Being The Focus Of Doug Liman’s Military Thriller

16 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson has played his fair share of superheroes from the title character in Kick-Ass to Quicksilver in Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron, but in Doug Liman’s The Wall, he gets to play a real superhero; Sergeant Allen Isaac, a soldier in Iraq trapped behind the title wall and pinned down by a sniper. Said sniper finds a way to tap into Isaac’s earpiece, and he begins to play mind games with the young soldier while trying to find out more about his life, and his past.

It’s a fantastic role for Taylor-Johnson with Liman’s camera trained on him for much of the film, creating the same kind of tension Liman brought to his earlier films, Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity.

Matthew Vaughn Has Already Begun Planning ‘Kingsman 3’

6 May 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Matthew Vaughn is part of an exclusive club of directors who haven’t yet made an outright “bad” film (at least according to this writer, The Playlist staff tends to disagree). His filmography showcases an impressive range of features, from “Layer Cake” to “Stardust” to Kick-Ass,” all the while maintaining a distinct directorial voice and aesthetic. Your mileage may vary for his films individually (see above, but in my opinion, he hasn’t made an outright stinker yet.
