“You’re the world’s worst detectives!”
August 23, 2016 was a huge day for blu-ray releases of all sorts: Criterion Collection, TV Seasons, and your standard amarays. Each release represented many different kinds of genres: fantasy for The Huntsman: Winter’s War and animation for the popular video game adaption, Ratchet & Clank. But the one release I was looking very forward to was Shane Black’s latest, The Nice Guys, released to theaters on May 20, 2016. (read Jim Batt’s Wamg review Here)
The Nice Guys was a film I missed in theaters and subsequently made me bummed out about missing it. I am a huge fan of the Ryan Gosling movement here which in the last several years is a name that sky-rocketed since his huge 2010-2011 films. From being the heartthrob in The Notebook to being an a-list actor, Gosling has proved to be a solid »

Say what you will about WB/DC's recent struggles on the big screen, when it comes to small screen sales the company has had great success. Man Of Steel sold quite a bit when it came out on DVD/blu-ray in 2013. Now its follow-up, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, is following in its footsteps. It has now held the top spot on the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart in the DVD and Blu-Ray category for four consecutive weeks. And for a second straight week, the movie right behind it in the second spot is another DC flick, Batman: The Killing Joke.
If you look at the Top 20 for this week (8/14/16), you'll even spot a third DC property on the list:
5. Scooby-Doo! And WWE: The Curse of the Speed Demon (new)
6. The Boss
8. Allegiant »

Rogue One: A Star Wars story is a film that certainly has quite the task ahead of it. Though the stakes aren't quite as high as they were with last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the film does have to accomplish a couple of key things. First, it has to be of a certain quality so that it doesn't make The Force Awakens look like a complete fluke, and second, it has to firmly establish itself as a unique beast from the main saga so that mainstream audiences will know what to expect from future anthology films.
With the mostly-positive response to the recent trailers, they seem to be on their way, but not all audiences are convinced, namely the Chinese audience. According to THR, Rogue One is currently facing a mixed response from the Chinese, mainly in regards to the casting of Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen. While »

Filmmaker Shane Black has always loved to pepper his stories with violent outbursts, either for dramatic or comical effect. From his scripts for Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, and The Long Kiss Goodnight, to his writer/directorial efforts Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, and The Nice Guys; these are worlds that Black has envisioned with consequential action that not only informs the plot but also reflects on the characters. While part of it is just popcorn entertainment to see his noir-drenched characters do some really cool stunts, another part is a window into the souls of the films themselves and the worlds he has created (along with the people that populate those worlds). A new video by The Nerdwriter (a.k.a. Evan Puschak) looks at Shane Black’s judicious use of action and violence in his films, and finds an insight from which other filmmakers would »

Samuel Brace on DC, Marvel, and the state of the superhero genre…
A bad film doesn’t make a better film great.
This is the sentiment we must remember going forward as we discuss and analyse the state of superhero movies in 2016, especially as it pertains to DC and their latest outing, Suicide Squad. Critics and fans, have been less than kind to the villain team up film from WB, the third film (yeah, I often forget about Man of Steel too) in their Dceu after this year’s incoherent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With a Metacritic score of 40 and a Rotten Tomatoes score of 26%, this flick didn’t exactly get off to the best start. While it is raking in the cash for its opening weekend, this will likely drop off dramatically like BvS did just months ago. There are some that like it of course, and more power to them, »

Unlike some other contemporary blockbusters—like Iron Man 3, for example, which added four minutes of footage featuring local stars for its Chinese release—Suicide Squad doesn’t give a fuck about China. And, as a result, it probably won’t get a release in the world’s second-largest movie market, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Even thought it officially opens today in the U.S. after raking in $20 million overnight at preview showings, the film has yet to be added to the official Chinese release calendar, which is usually set months in advance. Unlike the country’s ban on Ghostbusters last month, however, the passive-aggressive move has nothing to do with the film’s supernatural elements. Instead, THR speculates that the film’s “dark and anarchic tone” may be inhibiting its Chinese release, with censors presumably fearing that the film will drive its populace to madness with how »

A skydiver has made history by becoming the first person to jump 25,000 feet without a parachute - and he did it all on live TV. Millions tuned into Fox's special called Heaven Sent to see professional skydiver Luke Aikins, 42, jump out of an airplane with only the clothes on his back, freefall for about two minutes and successfully land in a 100 ft. by 100 ft. net. The daredevil then climbed out of the net and embraced his wife, Monica, who was among family and friends, including their 4-year-old son, anxiously watching from the landing site in the outskirts of Simi Valley in California. »

In March 2015, it was reported Sony was working on another Ghostbusters film besides Paul Feig's new reboot. It was said to star Channing Tatum (with Chris Pratt later linked) and heavily suggested by pretty much everyone other than those involved that it would be "all-male." But Ivan Reitman is now saying the project was "never real." Feig's film, which is looking to take second place at the box office this weekend with a healthy $46 million, stars Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig. When it was first announced it was met with a great deal of backlash -- backlash which Sony chairman Tom Rothman said was "the greatest thing that ever happened." While producer Reitman considers that response to be from those for whom Ghostbusters was a seminal moment in their lives, somehow the Channing Tatum/Chris Pratt version was not considered something that would ruin childhoods. »

Shane Black has gone out of his way to insist that his upcoming “The Predator” is less of a typical remake and more of an “inventive sequel.” What exactly he means by that distinction is but one of many unanswered questions about the anticipated project. Also on fan’s minds is who will be playing Quinn Mackenna, the new hero taking over for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Dutch from John McTiernan’s 1987 original. (Spoiler: It probably won’t be Schwarzenegger.) The latest word is that James Franco is “very high on the list” to lead the new film.

In the process, he sparks a revolution of the people. “Helio” is the directorial debut from Teddy Cecil, who also wrote and produced the film.

Iron Man 3 star James Badge Dale is set to add another comic book adaptation to his C.V., with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that the actor has signed on to star in the supernatural thriller The Empty Man.
The film is based upon Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey’s Boom! Studios comic book, with David Britten Prior wiring and directing. The plot “centers on an ex-cop, plagued by the violent death of his wife and son, who battles to find a missing girl but soon discovers a sinister presence around him”, although it’s said that Prior’s script takes some departures from the source material.
Production on The Empty Man is slated to get underway in the fall in South Africa.

Ever since 2008, when Marvel began merging their cinematic franchises in The Incredible Hulk, many comic characters have appeared on-screen. Some have become major players in the McU, some are just minor characters, some have been killed-off and some…have been completely forgotten. Cinelinx looks at four major Marvel villains who were introduced in the McU but have since been totally forgotten.
The Leader: In the comics, the Hulk’s arch-enemy is brainy bad-guy Samuel Sterns, Aka the Leader. Sterns was introduced into the McU in The Incredible Hulk (2008), played by Tim Blake Nelson. In the film, Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) seeks help from oddball scientist Sterns, who proves to have his own agenda. He has synthesized samples of Banner’s irradiated blood, hoping to tap into its “limitless potential”. When last we see Sterns, he gets some of the Banner-Blood into a wound on his forehead. He smiles as his head starts to grow. »
