The Predator Heads Back To Canada For Last-Minute Reshoots

Shane Black’s The Predator is heading back for over two weeks worth of reshoots. The original Predator recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and is considered an enduring classic of the sci-fi genre. The movie would spawn numerous sequels, spin-offs, comic books and video games, but the film series hasn’t had a new entry since 2010’s mostly forgettable Predators.

The Flash Welcomes Friday The 13th’s Derek Mears In New Featurette

Throughout the course of its four seasons, The Flash has had some memorable actors stop by to play guest villains. Of course, very few are capable of eclipsing Mark Hamill’s Trickster, especially when you consider the geek cred that guy has racked up over the decades having played icons like Luke Skywalker and the Joker.

To my amazement, Derek Mears’ involvement with the series has flown under the radar, something I find to be rather perplexing. If his name sounds familiar to you, it should, because his long resume is quite impressive. Having played Jason Voorhees in 2009’s Friday the 13th remake and one of the titular creatures in 2010’s Predators, it stands to reason that his inclusion should turn more than a few heads.

This time around, he’s inhabiting the role of Sylbert Rundin Aka Dwarfstar, a metahuman who’s capable of shrinking others. Apparently, he’s

Robert Rodriguez explains Alita: Battle Angel’s anime eyes

While James Cameron messes about on Pandora, he has handed the directorial duties of his years-in-development Alita: Battle Angel over to Predators director Robert Rodriguez. When the trailer debuted the other day, amongst the most striking features of the sci-fi epic were the rendering of Rosa Salazar’s eyes.

Speaking to Empire about the trailer, Rodriguez addressed the creative choices behind giving Alita such prominent features:-

“It was always Jim’s intention to create a photo-realistic version of the manga eyes that we’re so accustomed to seeing. We really wanted to honour that tradition and see that look standing next to any human character. To have the right person to emote behind it was really essential. Her origins are in the film and you understand why she looks that way. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, we have some pretty big windows. You can see a lot going on in there!

Culture Dump #16: Why did the ‘Predator’ franchise miss the mark?

Xenomorphs weren’t the only extraterrestrial terror hunting humans throughout the eighties. Not long after James Cameron pulled the trigger on his testosterone-charged sequel Aliens, Director John McTiernan introduced us to a new intergalactic hunter with Predator in 1987. Two war movies, two alien franchises, two very different legacies. However as Predator closes in on its thirtieth birthday, it’s hard not to think the series somehow failed to capitalise on its full potential. With Shane Black’s upcoming retooling The Predator all that could change - but what went wrong during those intervening years that set the Predator so off course?

Maybe it can all be traced back to one single event: the mishandling of the film’s original sequel. The late eighties were good for John McTiernan. Having unleashed Predator onto audiences he doubled-down on the machismo theme with Die Hard a year later. However when the time came

Full International Trailer for Nimród Antal's 'The Whiskey Robber' Film

"Viszkis was one of the most famous bank robbers in Hungary. He drank whiskey before every robbing. This is his story." An official trailer has debuted for a film titled The Whiskey Robber, also known as The Whiskey Bandit or A Viszkis in Hungarian. This is the latest feature film from Hungarian-American filmmaker Nimród Antal, of Kontroll, Vacancy, Armored, and Predators in the past. The Whiskey Robber tells the true story of a Hungarian man named Attila Ambrus, also known as "Viszkis", who robbed 29 financial institutions in Budapest between 1993 and 1999. The only clue left behind at the crime scenes was the distinct aroma of whiskey. This looks like a fascinating, thrilling story of a man who just wanted to be happy and realized the only way to feel that was to collect money - mainly by robbing banks. Check this out. Here's an international trailer for Nimród Antal's The Whiskey Robber,

The Whiskey Bandit Trailer: Predators, Vacancy Director Returns

Nimrod Antal (Predators, Vacancy) hasn't been on my radar for a few years but I've always liked his films. His latest is about one of the most famous bank robbers in Hungary. A robber who drank whiskey before every robbing. That's my kind of robber.

The first trailer for the Hungarian film has dropped and it looks pretty slick. Let's bookmark this one, folks.

Synopsis:

Between 1993 and 1999, one man robbed 29 financial institutions in Budapest. Banks, post offices and even travel agencies fell victim to his crime spree. The police had no leads and no hope of findi [Continued ...]

Kontroll And Predators Director Returns Home With The Whiskey Bandit

It was back in 2003 that Hungarian director Nimrod Antal burst on to the international scene with his debut feature, Kontroll. A smart, slick title that was not at all what we'd been taught to expect from Eastern European cinema, Kontroll triggered a bit of a frenzy around Antal and Hollywood came calling. But while he tended to over deliver in the small to mid budget projects he was handed - Vacancy, Armored, Predators, Metallica Through The Never - the personality that caught so much attention in Antal's debut never quite came through in his Us efforts. Which means there is a certain amount of anticipation to see what Antal can do back in his native Hungary now that he has returned there for a...

The Lightning Strike Poster For The Predator Gets a Cool Motion Poster

We first saw a version of the new poster for The Predator at the Brand Licensing Expo in London earlier this month, but now 20th Century Fox has revealed a motion poster that makes it a whole lot cooler.

Writer/director Shane Black wrote the script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker. Black says the film is not a full reboot of the Predator series and remains in the continuity of the first two movies. He also said the film will be rated R.

The cast includes Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) and Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica).

The Predator Motion Poster Strikes Lightning on the Hunter

The Predator Motion Poster Strikes Lightning on the Hunter
Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox released a shocking still poster for Shane Black's The Predator, and now, the studio has surprised fans with a motion version of the very same image. The original Predator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary and some theaters from around the world are scheduling screenings to celebrate the sci-fi/action classic. As far as the Predator franchise is concerned, the first movie is generally the only one that is celebrated, but Shane Black is aiming to breathe new life into the famous franchise that is sure to entice fans.

First found on the official Predator mobile app, the motion poster shows thunder cracking across the sky as bright blue and white bolts of lightning in the shape of the titular thermal-tracking Predator flash to illuminate a city below.

10 Actors Who Were Almost Cast in Marvel's Ant-Man
Cinephiles and Marvel movie fans were abuzz when writer/director Edgar Wright teased plot details, production photos, and concept footage from Ant-Man, which promised to be an action comedy take on Marvel's travel-sized superhero. Wright ultimately left the project, though Paul Rudd stayed on as Scott Lang for director Peyton Reed, who delivered the 2015 film that earned over $519 million worldwide. But before Rudd entered the scene, Ant-Man himself almost looked quite a bit different.

There were plenty of actors considered for the film's lead and the no-less important parts of Og Ant-Man Hank Pym, the Wasp and/or Hope van Dyne. Today, we look at 10 actors who were almost cast in Marvel's Ant-Man at one point or another. And there are some pretty wild and unique choices to be discovered. As well as some that are simply no brainers. Would any of them have been better than Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly?

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure
Reversing Hollywood’s decades-long practice of casting white actors in Asian roles has proved vexing. Boycotts haven’t worked. Op-eds have drawn attention to the issue, and social media has magnified the scrutiny of the lack of diversity and inclusion on the big screen.

But last week’s stunning decision by British actor Ed Skrein to drop out of playing a Japanese-American character in the upcoming “Hellboy” reboot is likely to put pressure not only on casting directors but actors themselves, as well as film companies and studios.

Skrein, who declined an interview request, said in a statement that when he accepted the role, he was unaware that the character of Ben Daimio was of Asian heritage. He said the casting announcement caused “understandable upset” and “intense conversation” that prompted him to do what he felt was right. The response to his move has been largely positive, with many people on social media pledging to support other

Adrien Brody Is Still Haunted By ‘The Pianist’ After 15 Years

Adrien Brody Is Still Haunted By ‘The Pianist’ After 15 Years
Fifteen years have passed since Adrien Brody won best actor for his work in “The Pianist,” and he’s still fielding questions about that role more than anything else. That was certainly the case at a recent press conference with journalists at the Locarno Film Festival, where the actor is receiving a lifetime achievement award.

But you don’t get the feeling, at least not entirely, that he is reminding you of his triumph at the Oscars in order to bask again in residual traces of that glory. It’s more that his portrayal of the Jewish composer Władysław Szpilman in Roman Polanski’s epic film of the Holocaust exacted an emotional toll that, even with a decade and a half under the bright spotlight of Hollywood, he has found difficult to shrug off. “I had to sacrifice large parts of my personal life,” he said. In preparing for the film,

Adrien Brody on His Ties to China and New Film ‘A Dog Named De Niro’ (Exclusive)

Adrien Brody on His Ties to China and New Film ‘A Dog Named De Niro’ (Exclusive)
Adrien Brody was feted Friday with a lifetime achievement award at the Locarno Film Festival, Europe’s preeminent indie event, where he sat down with Variety and talked about why his 2003 Oscar for “The Pianist” didn’t lead to as many big studio roles as could be expected. He also delved into his ties to China, where he is one of a handful of bankable Western stars; and was cagey about his upcoming roles in TV show “Peaky Blinders” and genre-bending picture “A Dog Named De Niro.” Excerpts.

Of your early films the one that stands out for me is “Bread and Roses” by Ken Loach, who was celebrated here in Locarno last year. It’s still timely, given that it’s about exploited Mexican workers in L.A. Can you talk to me a little about working with Loach. How did it happen?

I don’t recall the audition, but

Warner Bros. Ready to Remake Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (Again)

In the studio world's constant quest to mine familiar IP, this one was inevitable, folks. Deadline reported this afternoon that Warner Bros. has hired veteran producer John Davis (Predator, Alien vs. Predator, And Predators!) to lead the development of a new adaptation of Jack Finney's 1954 novel "The Body Snatchers", with The Conjuring 2 scribe David Leslie Johnson along for the ride. Davis is a man with a bazillion projects in development, so we'll just have to see how far this goes. Though in terms of sure bets this one should be firing on all cylinders. If you're a reader of ScreenAnarchy than you are no doubt a fan of at least one of the four film adaptations that's been made from the source material...
