Yesterday, netizians went into overdrive mode when Salman Khan, who has been making headlines of late tweeted about his hero worship towards Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone. In fact Salman posted on twitter saying, "Agar kisi ko follow karna hai? Bahar ka... inko follow karo @TheSlyStallone Aapke Hero ka hero Sylvester Stallone". Interestingly, Stallone best known for his action avatar in films like The Expendables reciprocated positively thanking Salman Khan for his compliment saying, "Would like to thank the super talented Indian superstar Salman Khan the Compliment he Tweeted! We should do an Action Film together!" However Sly, as he is fondly known didn't stop there. Instead he went on to talk about Salman saying he was impressed with Salman Khan's ardent fan following saying, "Salman, I am very impressed with your many devoted fans. To make a great Action film Sucessful takes Many great fans who support you, »

On May 26th, 1995, music video director and artist Robert Longo made his directorial debut with Johnny Mnemonic, an adaptation of William Gibson’s futuristic short story of the same name (Gibson also penned the screenplay) that starred Keanu Reeves in the titular role as a “mnemonic courier” who finds himself in the middle of a corporate conspiracy with implications for all of mankind.
Johnny Mnemonic celebrates its 20th anniversary this month, and while it may not necessarily be a film many sci-fi fans celebrate, it’s always held a special place in my heart, undoubtedly being one of the coolest films I saw that year and one that also revitalized the cyberpunk film movement (yes, even before The Matrix came along and did it a bit more effectively).
For the uninitiated, Johnny Mnemonic transports us to the year 2021; in the opening text crawl, we learn that corporations have taken over »

If you’ve ever watched The Transporter, Crank, or The Expendables and wished you were Jason Statham, then we have some good news. Thanks to a pretty odd promotion from 20th Century Fox for next month’s action comedy Spy, you can get plans for a 3D printed Jason Statham mask. Disclaimer: Whatever you decide to do once […]

If you guessed that this is a cheap pre-Jurassic World cash-in, congratulations: you are smarter than this padded-out pile of cut-rate cinematic junk. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
If you imagined that a new direct-to-dvd movie entitled Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs was a cheap pre-Jurassic World cash-in, congratulations: you have mental powers beyond those demonstrated by anyone onscreen or behind the scenes of this padded-out pile of cut-rate cinematic junk. The title is about as fact-based as the movie’s grasp of science, human relationships, digital effects, or storytelling. There’s only one cowboy, and he’s not much of a cowboy since that traumatic rodeo incident, and though he will get back up on that horse — literally — in order to battle some dinosaurs, this would more appropriately be called Girls in Tiny »

Disney and Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is set to cross the $1 billion box office mark today, on its twenty-fourth day of global release. This is the third Marvel Studios film to pass that mark following the first 'Avengers' and "Iron Man 3". [Source: Variety]

Appearing on the red carpet in the UK for his romantic comedy "Man Up" actor Simon Pegg was asked by The Sun about the possibility of him having shot a cameo in his friend J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". His response sounds like a joke, but has already got people talking: "I wasn't a stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a stormtrooper... I shouldn't have said that."
Pegg then a few hours later clarified the comment: ""Why is everyone leaping on this? It was a rumour last summer, wasn't it? I read it in the paper. »

While it was initially believed that The Expendables 3 would be the last movie in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables franchise, the actor/filmmaker revealed in November that The Expendables 4 will be rated R, unlike the PG-13 sequel The Expendables 3. There hasn't been much movement on the sequel at this time, and it isn't known which cast members will be back, and which will not. There was recently a rumor circulating that wanted to cast boxer Manny Pacquiao, if he would have won his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. earlier this month. teased that he would have cast him, if he would have won the fight.
"Of course. Yeah, he was going to teach us all how to box."
Then just moments later, the actor backtracked, stating the boxer was never going to be in The Expendables 4.
"No, Pacquiao was never going to be in it. He's a great fighter, »
The annual Cannes festival has now kicked off, can you believe it’s already been a year since Sly, Arnie and the rest of The Expendables cast went for a tank ride? Expect the site to be riddled with various Cannes related breaking news over the coming days.
First up is a whole heap of new information about Ratchet And Clank. Based on one of the Sony’s most popular game franchises, the film follows the ever ongoing adventures of Lombax Ratchet and his robotic companion Clank. The games were predominately platformers though they had elements of pretty much every other game genre going. They were also full of fun for all ages humour and featured some rather peculiar weaponry – the suck cannon anyone?

While there are sure to be some sales of buzzy film titles lighting up Cannes, there’s an ominous cloud hanging over this year’s market: the currency crisis in Europe and Russia. As a result, the financial underpinnings of several key film territories are at risk.
“The market in general is not healthy,” says Avi Lerner, chairman of Millennium Films and producer of “The Expendables” franchise. “We’re losing money territory by territory. Japan is not good. Russia is at zero because of the ruble. Europe is bad. Spain and Italy, over the last few years, have gone down. The only major territory we’ve seen growing stronger and stronger is China.”
But the Asian nation has its drawbacks, too — namely, a rigidly enforced quota system that makes it difficult for foreign films to get released, and a vast amount of piracy. But the Continent remains at the heart »

Amongst the slew of cancellations and green lights currently going on over at the Us networks, one infamous name has emerged with a smile on his face – Wesley Snipes.
He’ll be hitting small screens as The Player, a Vegas-based action drama from The Blacklist producers John Davis and John Fox, formerly known as Endgame. Filling out the “John” quota is writer John Rogers, who penned the pilot which has been given a series order.
The high concept premise sees Snipes’ security expert/action man caught in the ultimate high stakes situation – bringing down supercriminals as a shadowy and rich elite bet on the outcome. There’s a personal angle for the hero of course, as someone in the wealthy gambling pool is responsible for his wife’s death, and the supposed pawn is readying himself for a deadly strike.

Dolph Lundgren hasn’t enjoyed the same continued prominence as many of his equally hulking, stone-jawed peers – unlike Arnie, who has a new Terminator out this summer, or Sylvester Stallone, who’ll play Rocky again for fall spinoff Creed, the towering Swede has been contained to bargain-bin fare and occasional cameos in The Expendables. And though no one is contesting his ability to throw a punch, Lundgren still hasn’t had his True Lies moment, so to speak.
I wish I could report that Skin Trade was that watershed for the actor, that perfect part to elevate him from man-mountain to dramatic heavyweight – but it’s just not the case. As vengeful New Jersey cop Nick Cassidy, Lundgren is working well within his wheelhouse, and the ease with which the performer manages his dialogue speaks to how standard a part Skin Trade gives him. That shouldn’t come as a surprise – after all, »

Maggie pits Arnold Schwarzenegger against zombies, but not in the way you’d expect. The titular character (Abigail Breslin) is infected, but Wade (Schwarzenegger) isn’t driving into the city to put down the zombie threat, he’s bringing his daughter home before the disease reaches its inhumane conclusion. Protocols are implemented to keep the virus contained to the small midwestern town, but doctors set aside regulations to let Wade spend time with his daughter before she is sent away to the quarantine zone.
The stage of Maggie’s infection is still in its infancy, but any sign of worsening symptoms will get her sent straight to a quarantine area. Wade’s second-wife (Joely Richardson) has sent her children to stay with family outside of town, so it’s just the three of them in a makeshift farmhouse as they wait for inevitable to come. »

Skin Trade unites two very different kinds of action stars, which makes for a pretty exciting ride. In one corner we have Dolph Lundgren, a veteran of the genre who has appeared in classics like Rocky IV, Universal Soldiers and The Expendables trilogy. In the other corner we have Tony Jaa, the Thai martial artist who starred in the Ong Bak trilogy and had a memorable supporting role in Furious 7.
Lundgren, who also wrote and produced Skin Trade, stars as Nick Cassidy, a New Jersey detective intent on shutting down a human trafficking network run by Serbian mobster Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman). But after shooting Viktor’s son, Nick finds his life left in ruins after his wife and daughter are killed as revenge.
Looking to settle the score, he travels to Thailand to find Viktor and take him out for once and for all. In the process though, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's filmography is a strange beast – full of iconic science-fiction flicks (The Terminator), lightweight comedies (Kindergarten Cop) and superhero disasters (Batman & Robin). Watching a career montage is a surreal experience, and the actor made that happen during Tuesday's episode of The Late Late Show, joining host James Corden to re-enact some of his most famous – and infamous – scenes and lines.
Schwarzenegger opens the above clip by channeling his breakout role, the title adventurer in 1982's Conan the Barbarian, but the timeline turns nonlinear – moving from the always quotable »
Ever since he left office as the two term governor of California and returned to the acting world, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the film choices of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s slowly gone from being a wise cracking killing machine (sometimes literally) to someone more contemplative of the toll it all takes on a person. To be sure, the movies are almost all throwaway popcorn entertainment regardless, but there’s a definite shift that’s easy to notice (the very talented Matt Singer often writes about this in terms of Schwarzenegger, so I highly recommend reading something of his). This week, there’s another new side of Schwarzenegger on display in Maggie, a zombie drama in which he’s trying to avoid killing for one of the first times in his career. As a quick plot summation, the film follows a farmer who sees his daughter slowly turning into a zombie. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's still got it! The "Maggie" star stopped by "The Late Late Show with James Corden" on Monday, where the comedian and Arnold acted out all of Schwarzenegger's movies in just Six minutes. Check out the hilarious clip above to see them tackle everything from "The Terminator" to "The Expendables." We love how Schwarzenegger poked some fun at a few of his famous flicks, too ... admitting that he's never seen "The Expendables" 1, 2, or 3. There were also a few memorable moments when the hilarious duo spoofed "Batman & Robin," "Twins" and "True Lies." Corden even gave the 67-year-old one ridiculous lap dance while he pretended to be Jamie Lee Curtis in the 1994 action flick. Which skit was your favorite? Tell toofab in the comment section below and check out the gallery to see more of your favorite men from the '90s then and now! Read more »

Tony Jaa and Dolph Lundgren come from very different camps within the action genre. Weaned on a diet of martial arts before making his breakout in high-octane fighting series Ong Bak, the former is among some of the best fighters to break into Hollywood. On the other hand, Lundgren is best known for his role as the unyielding man-mountain Ivan Drogo in Rocky IV, before flexing his muscles alongside his genre contemporaries Stallone and Schwarzenegger for The Expendables franchise.
Fast forward to 2015 and the fresh-faced Jaa is set to team up with the action stalwart for Ekachai Uekrongtham’s Skin Trade, a hard-boiled thriller that puts them in pursuit of Ron Perlman’s elusive Serbian mobster.
Due to premiere in Los Angeles tomorrow, Wednesday 6, there’s a buzz of excitement for the arrival of Uekrongtham’s actioner, and We Got This Covered has 5 pairs of tickets to give away to our readers. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Monday to promote his new zombie drama “Maggie,” and the action star helped Corden act out iconic scenes from some of his biggest movies, much like Tom Hanks did during Corden’s debut. The two started off with classics like “Conan the Barbarian” and “Pumping Iron” before shifting to Schwarzenegger’s more recent fare, like “The Expendables.” “Are we doing ‘Expendables’ number one, two or three?” Schwarzenegger asked. “Well, what’s the difference?” Corden replied. “I don’t know, I never saw any of them,” Schwarzenegger said.

Viewers already saw James Corden help Tom Hanks reenact his filmography in under seven minutes, and on Monday, the Late Late Show host helped Arnold Schwarzenegger do it in six! Together, they performed scenes from many of Schwarzenegger's famous movies—even the duds! The Austrian-born actor made his feature film debut in 1970's Hercules in New York, though his accent was so thick that this lines were dubbed in post-production. That movie wasn't included in the late-night sketch, though he and Corden did pay homage to several of his earlier roles, including Conan the Barbarian and Pumping Iron. When Schwarzenegger and Corden recreated a scene from The Expendables, they used cardboard stand-ins for »
Very political late-night on CBS. While David Letterman hosted President Barack Obama, Late Late Show host James Corden hosted former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and they re-enacted 17 of his films in six minutes. After kicking things off with Conan The Barbarian, they worked their way through to The Expendables, where Arnold asked, “One, two or three?” and James correctly wondered, “What’s the difference?” Schwarzenegger had no answer: “I don’t know, I never… »
