‘Expendables 3′: Measuring The Sum Of Its Star Parts In Key Overseas Markets

16 August 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Expendables 3 is debuting this weekend in 40 territories including Russia, the UK, Mexico and Australia — and features a powerhouse ensemble that includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and Kellan Lutz.

Together, the cast outweighs the sum of its parts, but the parts are actually quite interesting when looked at in terms of international box-office drawing power, especially in mega markets like China, Korea, Russia, Brazil, and parts of Western Europe. Below, I’ve broken out numbers for some of the individual stars across those markets with a nifty slideshow that covers their last three major titles outside the franchise in these key territories.* The first Expendables film did about $274M worldwide, with $171M from overseas. In an unusual turn of events for a sequel, the franchise’s second film saw its earnings drop in the U. »

No Country for Old Men Who Kick Ass

14 August 2014 7:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This weekend will see the release of The Expendables 3, the latest in a series featuring all your favorite action stars from the 80s and 90s in the same movie. This series is a one trick pony – all your favorite action stars from the past reuniting to relive their collective glory days – but it is a trick I’d happily watch for seven more films. I remember when the first film came out I told my dad I went to see it and loved it, and when he asked what it was I just named the cast. He remarked that that movie would sound cool if it was made in the 90s. I replied oblivious to the dig with “Yeah, it’s awesome, right?” – The fact that these were all action heroes past their prime was the point.

One of the reasons why I enjoy writing and thinking about the »

Meet your Aquaman, Jason Momoa [Updated]

12 August 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ladies and gentlemen, we have your Aquaman!

It was confirmed today that Jason Momoa, who was long rumoured to be the lead candidate in the running for the role, has officially signed on as the superhero in Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Momoa is the latest addition to the cast which includes Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader, Henry Cavill who reprises his Man of Steel role as Superman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.  Momoa’s casting announcement comes weeks after Snyder and cast appeared an Comic-Con.  We don’t have any clue as to what Arthur Curry and his alter-ego Aquaman will look like in the film, but we expect a teaser image to be released the way we’ve gotten looks at both Batman and Wonder Woman’s costumes.

So who exactly is Aquaman?  Conceived in the 1940s, he’s a founding member »

Sylvester Stallone looks for a hit with mob thriller Scarpa

9 July 2014 1:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the third Expendables film set to hit theatres mid-August, Sylvester Stallone is already lining up his next project. The New York Post were first to scoop with the news that Stallone will reunite with producer Irwin Winkler (Rocky) to portray former mob hitman Gregory Scarpa.

Scarpa was a career criminal and mob enforcer for the Colombo family, turned FBI informant. The film will focus on his involvement in the “Mississippi Burning” case which he helped solve by allegedly pistol whipping and kidnapping a member of the Klu Klux Klan in 1964. After pleading guilty to three murders in 1993, Scarpa later died of complications from AIDS in 1994.

The film will be scripted by Mob film specialist Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas, Casino) and directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner Runner). All under the roof of Avi Lerner and Millennium Films who have a solid history with Stallone now.

What’s the effect of lowering The Expendables 3 rating to PG-13?

6 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

Scott Mendelson notes the flaws with the decision on dropping the rating for The Expendables 3 to PG-13:

“Is a PG-13 Expendables film, which may end up being a strong action picture that merely lacks blood and F-words, at a disadvantage by virtue of its “lesser” rating? Will this attempt to snare potentially uninterested younger audiences in turn scare away the very audience who otherwise would be most excited to see the film?”

Read the full article, on Forbes, here.

The argument is whether the lower rating will put off the adult market that The Expendables 3 depends upon. The attempt at attracting a younger audience simply isn’t worth the potential loss of the adult audience. Mendelson writes how “box office failures of The Last Stand, Parker, Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan, and Sabotage” may be responsible for the change in rating. »

See Jason Momoa's Heroic Aquaman Pose

16 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There's been a whole lotta Marvel on the mind of late, but DC seems to be changing that with some big announcements and rumors regarding its upcoming slate of superhero movies. Last week we not only heard a report supposedly detailing a very ambitious release schedule for everything from Justice League to Wonder Woman, Shazam and Sandman solo movies. Then word leaked that Jason Momoa was circling the part of Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a larger role planned for the DC hero in Justice League. Momoa, whose most recent roles include the Conan reboot and a part in Bullet to the Head, all but confirmed his Aquaman part with an image on Instagram that should be pretty recognizable to those fans of the character.    Yup, that's Momoa...

Charlotte Gainsbourg lets her sexuality do the talking in Lar von Trier's Nymphomaniac.

Danish bad boy Lars von Trier’s (Breaking the Waves) latest work is the 2013 two-part erotic drama film Nymphomaniac, Volume I and II, starring the international ensemble of Charlotte Gainsbourg (The City of Your Final Destination), Stellan Skarsgard (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Shia Labeouf (Lawless), Connie Nielsen (3 Days to Kill), Christian Slater (Bullet to the Head), Jamie Bell (Jane Eyre), Uma Thurman (Ceremony) and Willem Dafoe (Antichrist).

He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe, over the next eight chapters, recounts the lustful story of her highly erotic life from infancy to the age of 50. Seligman, »

Special highlights at what will be Diana Iljine’s fourth outing as festival director include the first ever complete retrospective dedicated to the veteran Us director Walter Hill, a gala evening in honour of the Oscar-winning producer Arthur Cohn with a screening of The Children Of Huang Shi, and a tribute to the producer-director-cinematographer Willy Bogner.

The Walter Hill retrospective will range from his 1975 debut Hard Times, starring Charles Bronson and James Coburn, through such classics as The Long Riders and The Warriors  and two films made for Us television - the pilot Deadwood and the Western epic Broken Trail - to his 2012 film Bullet To The Head, with Sylvester Stallone and Christian Slater.

Cliffhanger Will Get A Reboot

30 May 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Sylvester Stallone hasn’t been doing too hot at the box office lately (his last stand-alone, 2013′s Bullet to the Head, made a pathetic $4,458,201 in its opening weekend and never even came close to recouping its budget), no one can deny that some of his movies rank among the finest and most iconic action flicks of all time. In particular, his rock-climbing thriller Cliffhanger is rightly thought of as an action classic. And though Sly himself may be sliding, Cliffhanger is ready for a new lease on life, with news that the film is getting the reboot treatment.

Deadline reports that Fast and Furious producer Neal Moritz is pushing for a remake of Cliffhanger over at StudioCanal and has in fact already locked in a writer. Joe Gazzam got the gig after making a pitch to Moritz and StudioCanal about his ideas for breathing new life into the action classic. »

Sylvester Stallone confirms The Expendables 3 will be rated PG-13

19 May 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the box office failures of Bullet to the Head, The Last StandEscape Plan and Sabotage, it seems the day of the macho 80s action star is finally drawing to a close. However, in what is surely one desperate last roll of the dice to bring in a new audience, Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that the upcoming action ensemble The Expendables 3 will be rated PG-13.

“We want to reach as many people as possible,” said Stallone during a press conference at Cannes. “It’s very close to an R, believe me, it’s right there. But I think we owe it to the next generation. We thought we’d join that club for a while.”

How do you feel about The Expendables 3 being rated PG-13? Let us know in the comments below….

‘Expendables 3′ to Be Rated PG-13; Stallone Discusses the Film’s Tone

19 May 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Expendables 3 unites the retro action stars of previous installments – Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, and so on – with such fellow old-timers as Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, and Antonio Banderas. However, in a self-admitted bid to keep up with the times – an age where younger, finely-chiseled, superheroes dominate the big screen – this new Expendables installment will be rated PG-13, according to co-writer/lead Stallone. This comes after Stallone and Schwarzenegger’s recent non-Expendables vehicles (Bullet to the Head, Grudge Match, Sabotage) were by and large ignored at the box office, while their team-up Escape Plan was an overseas hit, yet all but flopped here in the States.

"Grudge Match": Stallone and De Niro Must Need Money

12 May 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It’s never pleasant to watch a person you once respected lose touch with the skill or talent that made them so great, and that’s what we’ve been witnessing with Robert De Niro and, to a lesser extent (in that our respect for him was considerably less), Sylvester Stallone. As Robert De Niro has been lending his presence to lousy family comedies (Meet the Fockers, Little Fockers, etc.) or failed attempts at reclaiming his once gritty persona (Righteous Kill) with only a few good projects scattered in between, Stallone has been doing the same with revisits to his boxing (Rocky Balboa), soldier (Rambo), and action star (The Expendables, Bullet to the Head) glory days. And so, with their collective dignities besmirched by their refusal to let go of their glory days, they’ve given in to a film like Grudge Match, a film whose very premise plays out »

Has Jason Momoa Officially Joined 'Batman Vs. Superman'?

25 April 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Although this has not been confirmed by Warner Bros., Batman-News.com is reporting that Jason Momoa has signed on to join the cast of Batman Vs. Superman.

Reports first surfaced in December that the actor was in negotiations for an unspecified role in the sequel. At the time, it was believed that he might be playing either Doomsday or Martian Manhunter. A month later, Jason Momoa denied any involvement, although he did confirm that he auditioned for director Zack Snyder's superhero adventure. It was later rumored that the actor is playing Aquaman in what would essentially be a cameo appearance that will set up his character for future movies.

Zack Snyder is directing from a script by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, with production beginning very soon in Michigan. Do you think Jason Momoa is a good fit for Aquaman? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Last Action Heroesc Has the Macho, Action Genre Hit a Low Pointc

1 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't quite know how to describe the genre I'm referring to with this post (BoxOfficeMojo doesn't even have a category for it), but suffice to say I'm particularly targeting the films made popular by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone back in the '80s and more recently it seems Jason Statham had a lock down on things. Now, however, it only seems Liam Neeson can really generate any box-office juice with his cinematic fisticuffs, otherwise it has to be an ensemble or nothing. I ask because ever since Schwarzenegger made his way back to movies after playing Governor for eight years, he's seen The Last Stand, Escape Plan and this past weekend's Sabotage tank at the box office. Similarly, Stallone has seen Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan and Grudge Match bomb at the box office and Statham has seen a string of non-starters including Killer Elite, »
