Actor Mickey Rourke has nothing good to say about Gop candidate Donald Trump. In a TMZ video, Rourke called Trump “nothing but a big-mouthed bitch bully,” and that he would “love 30 seconds in a room with the little bitch.” Meanwhile, Rourke endorsed Ben Carson when the TMZ reporter asked him who will get his vote.

“The nice thing about these guys is they’re not stuck in a rut,” Malone told Variety, saying he decided to invest in the studio because of the “quality of the management.”
Last February, Lionsgate and Malone’s Starz cable network engaged in a stock swap that granted the billionaire a 3.43% stake in Lionsgate and a seat on its board. Because Malone is known as one of the foremost media consolidators, having recently orchestrated a pact to marry Time Warner Cable with his Charter Communications, investors and analysts wonder if his investment could end in an eventual merger. On Tuesday, Malone said he was still in the “get to know you phase” in his relationship with Lionsgate.
Asked if he was worried about Lionsgate’s future given that »

War Pigs, 2015.
Directed by Ryan Little.
A misfit army unit go behind enemy lines to confirm the existence of a Nazi super weapon during WWII.
Remember when the first trailers for Inglourious Basterds came out and it made the film out to be a Nazi-hunting bloodbath with little substance other than violence? Wasn’t quite what we got, was it? Ryan Little’s War Pigs (unfortunately 300: Rise of an Empire beat this film to the Black Sabbath song of the same name) comes along with a similar promise and, to an extent, delivers in as much as we get to see an army unit going behind enemy lines during WWII to do a bit of recon and getting spotted by the Nazi troopers in the area. However, War Pigs suffers incredibly by »

Yield Entertainment has released a new poster and stills for Jeremy Benson’s Girl in Woods. The latest thriller from the director of Shutter and Live Animals, the titular girl must battle nature and her own demons for her survival and sanity in a deserted part of the Appalachian Mountains. On his latest film, Benson said:
Girl in Woods was a passion project for us. The idea of doing an origin story to what would be a slasher film interested me, and being able to wrap that inside of a psychological thriller seemed to add a level of storytelling that, as a horror fan, I felt would be welcomed. This film is the birth of an urban legend; one of a mysterious savage that is believed to be killing people in the mountains. I want audiences to be disturbed by what is happening to Grace, and at the end understand »

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

Since his debut in Guy Ritchie’s 1998 film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, actor Jason Statham has emerged in the past few years as one of the leading action heroes currently working, with his popularity being proven by the fact that the Transporter series, which he headlined for the first three films, has gone on to a tv show adaptation and will be rebooted in theatres next weekend with The Transporter Refueled. That’s not the only action franchise Statham has headlined, however, as he has also been the leading man in the Crank films and been a part of the Expendables franchise and, more recently, the Fast and Furious franchise.
Action heroes often have to throw lots of punches onscreen, and Statham has been no exception in this regard. Now the youtube channel Burger Fiction has put together a compilation of the numerous punches Statham has thrown onscreen »

If you’re anything like us, then you’ve spent hours wondering just how many punches Jason Statham has thrown over his long career. Well wonder no longer, as YouTube channel Burger Fiction has compiled a super cut of every punch ever administered by the British action star. Proceeding roughly in chronological order through Statham’s long career (although some scenes are presented out of order), the supercut starts with Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; showcases the numerous franchises he headlines such as The Transporter, and The Expendables; and culminates in his more recent villainous appearance in Furious 7. Obviously not all of his roles are featured, such as his Handsome Rob character from The Italian Job – who mostly stayed behind the wheel and never laid a hand on anybody – but most of his career is represented in some capacity. The video has everything: dramatic »
Yes, you read that correctly.
The last we heard about a Kindergarten Cop movie was back in June when it was revealed they were working on a reboot to the movie. Well it turns out that its now a sequel, and the the first images of Kindergarten Cop 2 have surfaced online, and sees Dolph Lundgren (Masters of the Universe, The Expendables) taking over from Arnold Schwarzenegger in the leading role.
Check out the photos below (via Manly Movie):
“The new Kindergarten cop is a leading man type with an Indian sidekick named Sanjit. They’re on the trail of a missing flash drive from the Federal Witness protection program. Somehow it’s wound up in a kindergarten class. Flimsy premise, but it puts him side by side with a beautiful teacher and they hit it off. There’s also bad guys involved– this time they’re Albanian.”

Another week, another story of a movie reboot. This time it centres on the big screen take on the Mortal Kombat franchise. The videogame series continues to flourish, and New Line Cinema is planning to resurrect the reasonably successful line of movies too.
Oren Uziel and Dave Callaham are putting the script together, with the pair previously having worked on Mortal Kombat Legacy and The Expendables respectively. And we now learn that James Wan is set to oversee the movie.
Wan is currently working on directing The Conjuring 2, having seen his most recent film, Fast & Furious 7, become one of the biggest grossing movies of all time. He's set to direct Aquaman for Warner Bros and Robotech for Sony next. Thus, he's only taking a producing role on Mortal Kombat. »
It looks like there.s no fatality that can keep the Mortal Kombat film franchise down. While there have been attempts to get the movies going again we haven.t seen anything on the big screen since 1997. Now however, there.s a big name involved in rebooting the movies who has earned himself a lot of Hollywood credibility recently. Furious 7 director James Wan is on board to produce the new film. The Tracking Board has the details that Wan, who directed the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, should be able to bring some new life to the perpetually stalled project. The movie is being written by David Callaham (The Expendables) and Oren Uziel, who wrote the short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth which spawned the well-received web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The film will be a standalone reboot not connected to the previous films or the web series. »
New Line has been trying to get a new "Mortal Kombat" movie off the ground for years. Eventually, the studio settled for a web series that turned out to be successful. And now, there's a push to make the movie again. Today comes word that "Mortal Kombat" got a much needed boost by hiring James Wan (director of "Furious 7," "The Conjuring," "Insidious") to produce the film. The decision to bring Wan on board was due to the studio wanting "a departure from the mythology" with "darker, brutally real martial arts." The script is written by Oren Uziel ("Mortal Kombat: Legacy" web series) and Dave Callaham (The Expendables). It centers around a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of Outworld. Now, in order to stop the world from total destruction, »

Can I get a "Hell yeah!" Wrestling fans should be rejoicing this morning as 2K has revealed that the one and only Stone Cold Steve Austin is the cover athlete for WWE 2K16 and will be featured throughout the game. Come inside to learn more.
I'm going to be honest here, wrestling just isn't what it used to be. I watched it all the time when I was younger, but over the last decade or so, haven't been able to get into it very much. For me, the highest point of the entertainment sport was the "Attitude" era, where The Rock and Stone Cold were prominent players along with other memorable wrestlers. So today's announcement that Stone Cold is on the cover of the new WWE 2K game, has me pretty giddy.

Since his role in the blockbusting ensemble piece The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren has been somewhat of a tour-de-force in the world of direct-to-market action flicks. From straight forward action movies like Hard Rush and A Certain Justice, to more fantastical films such Battle of the Damned and Legendary, Lundgren has been tolling away in the genre starring in films that, whilst not all are entirely successful, are ways apart from his pre-Expendables career.
The reason for his recent success, in this reviewers opinion, seems to be his willingness to share the limelight. Where once he may have demanded the mot screen time, a headline on the poster etc., these days his films are more about the ensembles within them. He’s starred alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Cung Le (an underrated action star »

Jason Statham isn't one to say no to sequels (The Transporter series, The Expendables trilogy), so it doesn't come as a huge surprise that he will return as Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious 8.
