Actor/filmmaker Eli Roth has kept busy in recent years by producing lower-budgeted horror fare like The Last Exorcism movies and The Sacrament, as well as RZA’s passion project kung fu throwback The Man with the Iron Fists (which Roth co-wrote), but because of that he hasn’t released a feature as director since Hostel: Part II in 2007. That changes this year, with the arrival of Roth’s latest original gore-ific addition to the horror genre, titled The Green Infero.
Green Inferno, based on a script Roth co-penned with Guillermo Amoedo (Aftershock), follows a group of New York-based student activists who travel to the Amazon, in order to provide care for a dying native South American tribe. However, as the first trailer (see above) so eloquently teases, that scheme doesn’t exactly go according to plan, when it turns out said natives have ...

During the MTV Movie Awards, MTV News caught up with man of the moment Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie), who is set to make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this August as Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, the leader of the ragtag group of misfits turned superheroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy. Pratt offered an update on the current status of the movie, as well as a promotional campaign that so far has been fairly reserved (of course, expect all that to change by the summer).
“They’re cutting it together and loving everything that they see. They’re being very careful about what they release and very smart about getting people excited without giving away what the movie’s about and not giving away the best jokes or story. I think people are very fired up to see it, and don’t know what to expect. »

As Marvel Studios celebrates a record-breaking April box office opening for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the studio’s eyes are now turning towards the next Phase Two offering Guardians of the Galaxy, and thanks to MTV we’ve got the first clip from the cosmic superhero ensemble, which sees Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) making his escape from Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou)…

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced »

Los Angeles - RZA may be out and about promoting his film "Brick Mansions" co-starring the late Paul Walker, but it's clear that the rapper/director/actor/producer is also in full-promo mode for the couple of projects Wu-Tang Clan has in the hopper. Most recently, RZA announced that the hip-hop group had spent the last six years secretly recording the album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," of which only a single copy will be released, and to the highest bidder. The album will be encased in original silver-and-nickel box designed by artist Yahya and is intended -- in RZA's words -- as a work of art; whoever ends up purchasing it can do with it whatever he or she wants, whether hold it in a private collection or release it somehow for public consumption or otherwise. Curious fans will hopefully be able to listen to "Shaolin" like »

We're still six months away from the release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the follow-up to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 2005 cult classic, but according to Rodriguez, legendary comic book creator Miller is already turning his attention to the third instalment, having started work on Sin City 3.
"I was just here with Frank Miller and we were watching [A Dame to Kill For] last night," Rodriguez tells Collider. "[Miller] watched it last night with me and then at the end he said, he didn’t have any comments, he was very happy with it. And he said, ‘now, about part three’... So he’s already there on part three!"

Back in 2003, Tony Jaa was the biggest name in punching things, thanks to the release of “Ong Bak,” the Thai martial-arts film that, at the time, provoked a similar reaction to “The Raid,” only set in Bangkok instead of Jakarta. “Ong Bak 2” didn't quite pan out so well, however, and although Jaa is set for a role in “Fast & Furious 7” he's never broken out in the west. Nor has Prachya Pinkaew, who made “Ong Bak” and who also directed Jaa in “The Protector,” which came out stateside (in a somewhat cut-down version – thanks, Harvey) in 2006. Now, though, “The Protector 2” is on its way, and it's gathering a little more attention thanks to the presence of RZA, erstwhile Wu-Tang clan leader (actually, I think Wu-Tang membership is for life) and current martial-arts enthusiast: he directed and acted in martial-arts insanity-fest “The Man With the Iron Fists” in 2012, and behold, here he is in Bangkok, »

In recent years, Roth has focused largely on appearing onscreen in films like Inglourious Basterds and serving as a producer on releases like The Last Exorcism films and The Man with the Iron Fists as well as Netflix’s hit werewolf series Hemlock Grove. Back in 2013, The Green Inferno - Roth’s first directorial effort since the 2007 release of Hostel: Part II - toured the film festival circuit ahead of a U.S. theatrical bow in September this year, and now it looks like Roth is ready ...

The story centers on two girls who unexpectedly arrive at the home of a married man to seduce him, which causes his perfect life to unravel. No cast members are attached at this time, but production is already scheduled to begin this April on a budget of less than $10 million.
The original screenplay was co-written by Eli Roth, Nicolás López and Guillermo Amoedo, with the director also producing alongside Colleen Camp, a veteran actress who can currently be seen in the Oscar-nominated drama American Hustle.
Eli Roth's The Green Inferno is currently slated for theatrical release on September 5, after making the rounds on the festival circuit last year. The thriller was his first directorial project since 2007's Hostel: Part II. »
Though he took some time off from directing following the release of Hostel: Part II in 2007, filmmaker Eli Roth doesn’t seem keen on taking a similar breather before his next project. The director most recently helmed the 2013 cannibalism movie The Green Inferno, and now The Wrap reports that he will direct the horror pic Knock Knock, which he co-wrote with his Aftershock collaborators Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoeda. Knock Knock revolves around two young girls who unexpectedly show up at the home of a married man, where they subsequently seduce him and wreak havoc on his life. Production on the $10 million film is set to get underway in April, though no casting has been announced just yet. While Roth took a break from directing for a bit, he stayed busy as a producer in the years after Hostel: Part II on films like The Last Exorcism and The Man with the Iron Fists. »

Here's the action-packed trailer for "Brick Mansions," which is the last film that Paul Walker completed before his death in November. It's a remake of 2004's "District B13," a French movie starring parkour star and all-around bad-ass David Belle. Belle reprises his role as an ex-criminal trying to go straight despite the brutal environment of Detroit's so-called brick mansions, a walled-off district of the city that the police have basically given up on controlling. (Here his character is called Lino instead of Leïto, though.) Paul Walker takes on the role of the undercover cop who has to infiltrate the brick mansions and take down a ruthless gang armed to the teeth and led by a particularly dangerous guy who's kidnapped Lino's girlfriend.

“The Animal” Batista has returned with a gigantic bang, winning the Royal Rumble 2014 and perhaps being the least popular returning high-profile face since… ever. He’s earned his spot in the main event of WrestleMania 30 and usually things change he will be taking on his old partner Randy Orton in the World Title match. The dominant superstar has had many marquee matches and has grabbed spotlight once again.
Debuting in 2002 as the muscle for “Reverend D-Von”, Batista shed this gimmick and soon after evolved (see what I did there…) into the explosive performer we know today. Winning numerous WWE titles, World titles and tag team titles – he’s had a career that’s likely the envy of many wrestlers, as a main event draw. Whether you like Batista or not, it’s unquestionable that despite his typical WWE muscle-bound look, that he exudes an intensity and passion all his own. »

The majority of non-wrestling fans are quick to dismiss “WWE Superstars” (as they’ve been branded by the now 50 year old company) when it comes to them appearing on the big screen. While a few too many excruciatingly bad cameo appearances have made that at least somewhat understandable, there are a surprising number of wrestlers who have proven that they have what it takes to impress audiences in the squared circle And on the big screen.
As incredible as they may be in the ring as they put their bodies on the line on an almost daily basis, wrestlers don’t always have what it takes to make the transition from getting a 90,000 strong crowd on their feet with a great promo to appearing anything other than wooden on a movie set. However, some do, and here we look at ten of the best performances from WWE Superstars turned actors! »

I wrote two movies this year. One is social. It's called One Spoon of Chocolate. The tagline is "One spoon of chocolate can change a whole glass of milk." It's a racism struggle. It's a struggle between two guys and they realize their struggle is minute compared to the real struggle. That one I don't think I'll make as soon as the one I've just finished, which is called Sting of the Scorpion. It's basically another revisit of The Man With the Iron Fists saga. It's very different than the first one. The cool thing about writing film and working with Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino is that Quentin is our teacher and Eli is my classmate, but they've elevated me. I told »
