Hostel director Eli Roth has launched a Vine contest online to scare up new international talent, with the grand prize winner getting a shot at developing an original idea with Roth and Chronicle/The Blacklist producers Davis Entertainment. “I wanted to create a global contest that anyone with a smart phone can enter,” he said Wednesday. “You don’t need a big budget or stars or makeup effects, and with the time limit you have to be creative. It’s not about being over the top or looking professional, whoever comes up with the most creative six second scare wins.”
Entries posted to Vine in the #6SecondScare contest will be judged by Roth, Rob Lowe, Kid Cudi, Elijah Wood, Vanessa Hudgens, and Quentin Tarantino, and winners will be announced on Halloween during Roth’s all-night horror marathon at Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema. “It doesn’t matter if you’re from Iowa or Iceland, »

According to Deadline, RZA — real name Robert Fitzgerald Diggs — will star alongside Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick in the film, which follows a young woman (Kendrick) who falls head over heels for the seemingly perfect man. However, as the story unfolds, we learn that the titular Mr. Right just so happens to moonlight as a hitman — now that’s a gnarly skeleton to keep locked up in the closet.
Nonetheless, in terms of RZA’s role, it’s understood the celebrated rapper will step into the shoes of Shotgun Steve, a trained marksman who collaborates with an opposing gangster. At this stage, that’s all we have in terms of plot details, though Deadline reports that Max Landis — the scribe behind 2012’s excellent found footage superhero flick, Chronicle. »

Welcoming producer, rapper, director and Wu-Tang Clan founder the RZA to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Tuesday night, the Film Independent at Lacma series scored an excellent 35mm print of Liu Chia-Liang’s 1978 kung-fu classic “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin,” presented in its original Mandarin language. In fact, it might have even been too pristine for the occasion.
As he explained in a Q&A with Elvis Mitchell, the RZA’s formative experiences with the Gordon Liu-starrer came in its dubbed, heavily expurgated form. Yet the film not only provided the Wu-Tang with its debut album title and a plethora of memorable (English language) dialogue samples, it also influenced the group’s guiding philosophy.
“I saw it when I was nine years old on Channel 5, and then again when I was 13 or 14 on 42nd St.,” RZA said, noting that the film’s story of the struggle between »

The Wu-Tang Clan is a hip-hop empire built on a foundation of kung fu movies — and last night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the RZA detailed some of the connections. First on the bill: a screening of the 1978 Shaw Brothers classic The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, which had a resurgence of popularity in 1993 because of the Wu-Tang debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Then the Wu-Tang's producer/leader and Elvis Mitchell (curator of the presenting organization, Film Independent at Lacma) engaged in a half-hour conversation about »

Dave Bautista is best known as former WWE Superstar Batista, four-time World Heavyweight Champion and two-time WWE Champion, but that's all about to change with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend. The massive actor takes on the role of Drax the Destroyer, a warrior whose sole existence revolves around his quest to avenge the death of his wife and child, who were killed by the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). While stuck in the high-tech Kyln Prison, Drax meets up with Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel), as these intergalactic misfits join forces to become the Guardians of the Galaxy, in order to stop Ronan from destroying their entire universe.
Much like his Marvel counterpart, athlete-turned-actor Dave Bautista is a soft-spoken, surprisingly (and quietly) funny man. You wouldn’t expect it, of course, given that Bautista is a former WWE wrestler, 6’6” and 278 lbs. Dubbed the “Leviathan” during his wrestling days, Bautista has moved on to acting, starring in films such as The Man with the Iron Fists and Riddick.
This weekend, Bautista brings his large yet affable presence to the character of Drax, a warrior with superhuman strength, dry humour, and a whole lot of vengeance on his mind. Joining him in his pursuit of the villain Ronan (Lee Pace) are Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel). Together, they are the “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

If there is any cast member in "Guardians Of The Galaxy" whose work can be categorized as a genuine surprise, it's Dave Bautista. I've actually spoken to him before this film, when we talked about his work in "The Man With The Iron Fists," and he struck me there as a very thoughtful guy who has this warmth that may not be immediately apparent when his primary job is to beat the hell out of opponents in the wrestling ring. Now that I've seen the finished version of "Guardians Of The Galaxy," I'm prepared to say that Bautista is a serious actor, a genuinely gifted and funny performer who just happens to also be a gigantic dude who looks like he could kill you with his hands. There is a sweetness to him that comes through loud and clear in the movie, and there is also a tremendous comic timing »

This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…
And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:
The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

This may not be the most exciting thing to come out of San Diego Comic-Con today, but the official logo for Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft adaptation has been revealed. The logo was on display at the Legendary Pictures booth, along with some weaponry. Take a look at the logo here…
Jones finished shooting Warcraft a few months ago, so hopefully we’ll be seeing some teaser footage or images from the film as Sdcc continues.
Warcraft is an adaptation of the incredibly popular video game franchise, and arrives in theaters on March 11, 2016. It sports a great cast that includes Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Misson: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, X-Men: The Last Stand), Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Daniel Wu (The Man with the Iron Fists), and Clancy Brown (Starship Troopers, »

For the man who directed Snoop Dogg's "La La La" and co-wrote RZA's directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, the relationship between hip-hop and film runs deep. "The only people who know more about movies than directors are rappers," Roth tells Rolling Stone. "All Snoop »
A kung fu TV show on “AMC”? Hell, why not. They could fight zombies, too. Minus the zombies, that’s apparently what former “Smallville” producers Al Gough and Miles Millar are bringing to American TV, along with Hong Kong mainstays Daniel Wu and Stephen Fung. Wu is a long-time Hong Kong actor who has broadened his career to Western work with “The Man with the Iron Fists” and “Europa Report,” and Fung is an actor turned director, recently responsible for the “Tai Chi Zero” trilogy of kung fu films. The duo is teaming up with Gough and Millar for “Badlands” (the show’s current working title), which has already been given a first season, 6-episode greenlight by cable net AMC, home of “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad.” “Badlands” is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.” In a land controlled by feudal barons, »
With Guardians of the Galaxy due to hit theaters next month, Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer, continues his transition from the world of professional wrestling to becoming a formidable big screen actor. He recently starred as "Brass Body" in The Man With The Iron Fists and co-starred with Vin Diesl (Fast And The Furious, Guardians of the Galaxy) in Riddick. In this exclusive clip for L.A. Slasher we see him go toe-to-toe with veteran Danny Trejo. Trejo, best known for his Machete character has been busy lately as well. His singing and dancing routines for Muppets Most Wanted stood out as one of the most memorable moments of the movie. At 70 years old, he doesn’t seem to show any signs of slowing down. He currently has 13 films in post-production. How many other actors can still play a bad ass at 70 years old? The L.A. Slasher publicly abducts »
