Underworld: Blood Wars Review

For 13 years we’ve been caught in the middle of Kate Beckinsale’s Lycan-hunting warfare, a streamlined franchise that’s sustained many tests of time, especially Beckinsale’s ageless taking to vampire purity. I wondered who dared asked for a fifth chapter in this R-rated Twilight for adults, and I was answered by a moderately full NYC movie theater audience, who hooted and hollered as Selene waged bloody retribution against both hairy and pale factions. People turned out for what’s essentially an H&M Bdsm orgy that’s interrupted by werewolves before any hanky panky can begin – but was their perseverance rewarded? By the grace of Nosferatu, Underworld: Blood Wars could have been way, Way worse. I’ll admit that.

As previously noted, Beckinsale once again returns as the famed “Death Dealer” Selene. Even with no memory of her daughter Eve’s whereabouts, she’s still hunted by Lycan

Voltron Live-Action Movie Is Happening with X-Men Writer

  • MovieWeb
This past summer, Universal Pictures' parent company NBCUniversal acquired DreamWorks Animation for $3.8 billion, with Universal Pictures inheriting the studio's slate of projects in development. One of these projects was actually a live-action adaptation of Voltron, which was being quietly developed at the studio. Today we have word that the project is in fact moving forward at Universal, with the studio setting X-Men and Watchmen writer David Hayter to write the script.

Deadline reports that Tom Engleman (The Chronicles of Riddick, The Lone Ranger) is set to produce. DreamWorks Animation is also behind the animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender, which debuted on Netflix this summer. It isn't known if there will be any connection between the live-action project and the animated series.

There had previously been a live action project called Voltron: Defender of the Universe, which was being developed by Atlas Entertainment several years ago. Thomas Dean DOnnelly and

Simon West to Direct Fantasy-Action Movie ‘War Wolf’ (Exclusive)

Simon West to Direct Fantasy-Action Movie ‘War Wolf’ (Exclusive)
Veteran action director Simon West has been set to helm “War Wolf,” with shooting set for Italy in November, Variety has learned.

Producers are Ileen Maisel, Lawrence Elman and Jib Polhemus. West will direct from a script by Andy Briggs and Paul Finch.

Fortitude International will launch international sales in Cannes. “War Wolf” is the first in a planned franchise of films under a partnership between West, Fortitude International and Amber Entertainment centered around the magical world of the Loup de Guerre.

Finch, author of the “Heck” crime novels, is currently working on a novelization of the project.

War Wolf” is set in 1356, after decades of relentless war between the French and English armies, with English solider Earl Hugo awarded the castle of his enemy, the French assassin Mauchet. But in the walls of the castle and the lands that surround it, someone has reawakened the Loup de Guerre, the

When Animals Dream Review

The werewolf genre is a tricky beast to tame, but when handled properly, some serious creature-feature chills can be achieved. Take Jonas Alexander Arnby’s When Animals Dream, for example. His delivery is a focused glance at one girl’s transformation into a recognizably hairy monster, but it burns slowly, building tension as the female specimen becomes comfortable in her new skin. It’s not the rip-roaring adventure something like Universal’s The Woflman reboot aims to be, or David Hayter’s goofy full-suited snoozer, Wolves. If either of those are more you speed, this gruesome coming-of-age story might not be your favorite breed, but those looking for something a bit weightier than fighting costumed stuntmen will find tenderness and intrigue in Arnby’s unexpectedly familial thriller.

Newcomer Sonia Suhl stars as Marie, a small-town girl who lives with her sick mother and caretaker father. As she starts to embark more on her own,

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap
Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for

‘Wolves’ DVD Review

Stars: Lucas Till, Stephen McHattie, John Pyper-Ferguson, Merritt Patterson, Jason Momoa, Janet-Laine Green, Melanie Scrofano, Adam Butcher, Philip Maurice Hayes, Miriam McDonald | Written and Directed by David Hayter

I, like many horror fans, know that the werewolf movie is the hardest of all the horror sub-genres to get right. For every American Werewolf in London, there’s an American Werewolf in Paris… But once in a while a movie comes along that successfully captures what makes the genre great. Wolves is one such movie.

Written and directed by David Hayter, who has penned such blockbuster films as X-Men and its sequel; and the film adaptation of Watchmen, Wolves tells the story of Cayden Richards. Your typical all-American jock, Cayden goes on the run following a vicious football incident and the murder of his parents – possibly at Cayden’s hands. You see Cayden is changing and not in your typical high-school teenager way.

WolfCop Blu-Ray Review

Werewolf movies can either be a howlin’ good time like Adrián García Bogliano’s Late Phases, taking a bite out of softer genre efforts, or they can be like David Hayter’s Wolves, a mainstream safety net that makes you want to cuddle a werewolf instead of run away in fear. Werewolves can be horrifying, menacing beasts, or overgrown house pets, spanning a varied spectrum of physical embodiments from humanistic (Wer) to cartoony (Wolves), which is why I have to commend filmmaker Lowell Dean on creating a werewolf movie full of gore, hilarity, and a werewolf police officer who’s more of a comic book hero than furry mythical creature. WolfCop is “Dirty Harry only hairier,” and his first case is every bit a bonkers B-Movie revival that midnight movie fans pray for – littered with fairytale references and a little animalistic cavorting for all you furry exhibitionists out there!

Wolves (2014)

Written by: David Hayter

Directed by: David Hayter

Cast: Lucas Till (Cayden Richards), Stephen McHattie (John Tollerman), John Pyper-Ferguson (Wild Joe), Merritt Patterson (Angelina Timmins), Jason Momoa (Conner), Janet Laine-Green (Clara Tollerman), Melanie Scrofano (Gail Timmins), Adam Butcher (Deke), Philip Maurice Hayes (Kino)

I saw a random preview of this film at the theatre before the feature film that I was there to see. It was the climax battle scene between the two primary characters. Both were wolfed out and talking some trash. I never heard from “Wolves” again until I saw it streaming on Netflix. I reserve judgment as one should until I actually watch something. I always have a golden strand of optimism to grasp on to. When it comes to werewolf films, I’ve found myself becoming a little pessimistic. The last film that really nailed it was “Dog Soldiers

'Aquaman' Star Jason Momoa Joins 'The Bad Batch'
Just one month after Annapurna Pictures and Vice teamed up to make The Bad Batch, Aquaman star Jason Momoa is in negotiations to join the cast. The actor will play the leader of a group of cannibals, "whose young daughter disappears with a woman who manages to escape the community after losing some key body parts." The story is set in a post-apocalyptic Texas wasteland, although no other specific story details were given.

Ana Lily Amirpour is directing from her own screenplay, with Annapurna's Megan Ellison producing alongside Danny Gabai and Sina Sayyah, with Vice's Eddy Moretti and Shane Smith executive producing. No production schedule was given, although this will likely go before cameras before Jason Momoa suits up as Aquaman in Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2.

The film is Ana Lily Amirpour's follow-up to her directorial debut A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, which was released in theaters last year.
