Remember When The Expendables 3 Got Leaked? Well, Someone Just Got Arrested

10 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When The Expendables 3 failed to match the box office sum of its predecessors, the blame was immediately placed at the feet of the nifty individual who stole a digital copy of the film and released it on the world wide web. But now, Sylvester Stallone and his aggressive posse of vigilantes have got an ounce of retribution after an individual was arrested in England and charged with the illegal leak of the film.  Deadline reports that a crack team consisting of the U.K..s Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, and the MPAA came together to hunt down the man they believe is responsible. It was basically just like The Expendables, but probably with less muscle, more brains, and it was, even with the necessary paperwork, probably less tedious.  Who was the dastardly mastermind behind this daring cyber robbery? »

10 Worst Action Movies Since 2000

2 April 2015 2:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Terrific action movies like Die Hard entertain us with white-knuckle suspense, larger-than-life villains and expensive set pieces, but they’re about as rare as intellectuals in the political system. Once you’ve spent a few years watching multiplex movies, you learn to be grateful every time a half-decent popcorn flick comes down the turnpike.

Hell, even The Expendables 3 will do, and that movie was so routine that even Bruce Willis didn’t want to do it. We don’t want Great Art, just two hours of escapism that doesn’t leave us feeling like we’ve been had.

Action cinema went off the rails when the likes of Schwarzenegger, Stallone, and Seagal became mega-successful and turned their back on the glorified B movies that made them famous in order to appear in overblown junk. Instead of The Terminator, First Blood and Above The Law, we got Last Action Hero, »

Jason Statham: I'll do as many Expendables film as Sly wants

1 April 2015 10:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If Sylvester Stallone wants to keep making The Expendables movies, Jason Statham for one will be happy to remain on board...

Even though The Expendables III fell short both with its box office take (just over $200m worldwide, well down on previous instalments) and its rating (PG-13? Sigh), it still comfortably turned a profit. Furthermore, it's still a franchise with active tentacles. An Expendables TV show is planned, there's the female-led The ExpendaBelles, and The Expendables 4 is still likely to happen.

And Jason Statham, for one, is likely to stay involved.

He's played the role of Lee Christmas in three Expendables movies so far, and he said to IGN that "working with Sylvester Stallone is beyond a 'pinch yourself' moment ... to be directed by him in a movie that he's produced, and to be shoulder-to-shoulder with Sly is a privilege anyone who loves action movies would never turn their »

First Full-Length Trailer For Zombie Drama Maggie Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger

25 March 2015 5:46 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A zombie movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger could either be described as being a very fun or very dumb idea. However, Maggie looks like pretty unique, and it should give The Expendables 3and Terminator Genesys star a chance to show off his serious side. Maggie will see Schwarzenegger play a Midwestern farmer who cares for his teenage daughter (Zombieland and Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin) as she slowly transforms into a zombie. Based on the first look at footage below, the movie will be a rather sombre outing, and it’s definitely an intriguing premise. »

Fast & Furious 7 review: Series bids emotional farewell to Paul Walker

24 March 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Wan; Screenwriter: Chris Morgan; Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: 15

From small beginnings as a plucky street racing drama, the Fast & Furious series has transformed itself into a juggernaut tentpole franchise that delivers jaw-dropping vehicular carnage and testosterone-soaked fist fights. Cast members aside, the Fast movies of recent years bear little resemblance to the early outings.

It wasn't until the arrival of Dwayne Johnson in 2011's Fast Five that the films really found their feet - now they're competing for serious box office bucks with the likes of Marvel and Transformers. In short, the Fast franchise now produces the kind of action movies you wished The Expendables would.

Picking up straight where Fast & Furious 6 left off, the storyline this time around is driven by Deckard Shaw's (Jason Statham »

Wild Card movie review: hardboiled rotten egg

23 March 2015 5:47 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Piles of noirish exposition get the better of Jason Statham in this unpleasantly retrograde crime drama. What happened in Vegas should have stayed there. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): Simon West must be stopped

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I understand why Jason Statham might want to expand his onscreen horizons. I don’t think he has it in him, but I get it. What I don’t get is: Why choose, for such a creative endeavor, this regressive throwback, which would have been unpleasantly backward-looking in the mid 1980s, when William Goldman published the novel it’s based on? (It was first adapted by Goldman himself for film in 1986, starring Burt Reynolds and titled Heat, and it wasn’t met with applause then, either.) Honestly, when I saw that Goldman was credited with the script here, »

Jonathan Liebesman To Direct Man At Arms, Another King Arthur Movie

20 March 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once upon a time, the idea of competing projects for major studios was a no-no. Then Deep Impact and Armageddon came along and effectively canceled each other out. The lesson learned in that case was: it doesn’t really matter if another movie embracing the same subject matter is also in development, it only matters if it’s better. So, that being said, yet another King Arthur movie has now appeared on the industry radar to rival Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Knights Of The Roundtable.

Deadline broke the news by announcing that Jonathan Liebesman, the director behind 2014’s Turtles reboot and Terminator: Rise Of The Machines, is in line to direct Man At Arms. Thunder Road PicturesBasil Iwanyk (The Expendables) is producing with Aperture Entertainment’s Adam Goldworm (The Last Witch Hunter) and Bryan Brucks (Scouts Vs. Zombies). Erica Lee will executive produce.

Review: 'The Gunman' Starring Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone And Javier Bardem

20 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The past few years has seen a resurgence of action films revolving around a past-his-prime yet-still-bad-ass dude setting things right. This was probably first set in motion by Sylvester Stallone and his grizzled action star filled "The Expendables" films, and has been handily retrofitted to varying degrees of success for actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger ("The Last Stand," "Sabotage"), Liam Neeson ("Taken," "Unknown," "Run All Night," "Non-Stop") and Kevin Costner ("3 Days to Kill"). One of the more unlikely participants in this prune juice-fueled movement is Sean Penn via the "The Gunman." It shares a lot with those other films —a graying, righteous loner making the hard decisions no one else can or will, an improbably high body count, a soundtrack that bleeps along like the inner workings of a computer, a beautiful woman caught in the middle— but is also saddled by Penn's self-conscious »

The Horror Genre Might Get Its Own Expendables-Type Movie

17 March 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With The Expendables franchise, Sylvester Stallone certainly hit on an intriguing concept: throw a bunch of aging action heroes into a movie together and let them do what they do best, kick ass. Since the first movie hit in 2010, there’s been talk of damn near every genre getting its own Expendables-style offering, mashing icons together, and Bruce Campbell still has eyes on making this happen for horror. Campbell first mentioned the notion of a horror Expendables, which would bring together all manner of genre legends to go after a single foe, back in 2010, and while his idea is still a ways off, it’s very much in play. Talking to Movieweb, the Evil Dead star said: Yeah! Never say never. I have a script that I'm working on that would pretty much be that. It's not ready to share at this point. It's in »

Movie Review – Run All Night (2015)

17 March 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Run All Night, 2015.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.

Starring Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Boyd Holbrook, Common and Holt McCallany.

Synopsis:

Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.

When Liam Neeson first purposefully told those pesky bad guys in Taken that he’d find them, and then kill them, few (even Neeson himself) would have envisioned his career taking such a dramatic shift into becoming an action star. Even whilst the likes of Stallone and Schwarzenegger found themselves having a brief renaissance thanks to The Expendables franchise, the interest in them soon waned, whilst Neeson has remained fairly bankable.

The Taken franchise has made a fortune, »

Bruce Campbell Is Still Planning 'Expendables' of Horror | Exclusive

12 March 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

More than five years ago, Bruce Campbell first floated the idea of making an Expendables of Horror that brought in all of his most famous genre friends to fight a single threat in one movie. He was planning it as a sequel to his 2008 horror comedy My Name Is Bruce, which found the cult icon essentially playing himself. The new movie was to be called Bruce Vs. Frankenstein, but we haven't heard much about it since then. Last year, he started talking about it again, though at the time, he said the script sucked. We asked Campbell if Bruce Vs. Frankenstein was still happening, and he revealed that he is still in the process of writing the script. He says:

"Yeah! Never say never. I have a script that I'm working on that would pretty much be that. It's not ready to share at this point. It's in the pipeline I guess you could say. »

‘John Wick’ Review

10 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, Dean Winters, Adrianne Palicki, Omer Barnea, Toby Leonard Moore, Daniel Bernhardt, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick | Written by Derek Kolstad | Directed by Chad Stahelski

Keanu Reeves has, in recent years, seemingly been making headway in to the action genre with films like 47 Ronin and Man of Tai Chi.Gone are the days of Keanu the funny mam, Keanu the heartthrob leading man love-interest and in has come a stone-faced bearded bad-ass. Yet, whilst both the aformentioned films have there fans – me included – neither really set the genre alight. However all that changes with John Wick – a return to the R-rated, arse-kickery of the genres heyday, that isn’t afraid to get bone-crunchily violent and bullet-riddled with blood…

John Wick features Keanu Reeves in the titular role – a hitman who left the business five years ago after finding the love of a good woman. »
