Rampage: looking back at the game and ahead to the movie

As it's announced that Dwayne Johnson's Rampage movie is to film this year, we look back at the 1986 videogame that inspired it...

If you wanted to experience the simple pleasure of punching a skyscraper until it collapsed back in 1986, then arcade hit Rampage was for you. A homage to American and Japanese monster movies like Godzilla and King Kong, Rampage was a comic action game that looked quite unlike any other coin-op available at the time.

Rampage doesn't waste much time with back stories, but the premise is this: three average joes - Lizzy, Ralph and George - are exposed to a toxin which transforms them into giant monsters. Lizzy becomes a Godzilla-like lizard, George a Kong-like ape and Ralph a toothsome giant werewolf of some sort. What follows is a comic caper of mindless destruction: each stage takes in a different 2D landscape of skyscrapers »

Legendary-Wanda Deal Approved by U.S. Commerce Department

2 February 2016 2:49 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The $3.5 billion move by China’s Dalian Wanda group to acquire leading Hollywood producer Legendary Entertainment has received the green light from the U.S. Commerce Department.

The deal was formally unveiled in Beijing less than a month ago by Wanda’s Wang Jianglin and Legendary’s Thomas Tull.

It is subject to ongoing regulatory scrutiny within China, from both the National Development and Reform Commission and from the Ministry of Commerce.

“It is quite a feat for an acquisition to be approved by the U.S. Department of Commerce in such a short time,” Wanda said in a statement on Tuesday. “This reflects the positive attitude that the U.S. government has towards Sino-u.S. cultural exchange.

Wanda, which has deep roots in property development, made its first overseas move in the entertainment sphere in 2012 when it agreed to pay $2.3 billion for the AMC cinema chain. The move has »

On Mubi Off #4: "In a Glass Cage" & "Crimson Peak"

2 February 2016 12:50 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

On Mubi Off is a bi-weekly column exploring two films: one currently available on Mubi in the United States, and the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc).On MUBIIn a Glass Cage (Agustí Villaronga, 1986)A number of directors have put audiences in the head of a murderer using a subjective point of view shot—Michael Powell, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, to name but a very few. The opening sequence of Agustí Villaronga's 1986 feature film debut, In a Glass Cage, further perverts that sense of empathetic identification by using subjective Pov to put us in the mind of a killer in the making. We don't know who this germinal cut-throat is at first, only that he or she is bearing witness to a truly unspeakable horror: a middle-aged man lasciviously caressing, then beating to death, a naked, bloodied and helpless adolescent boy.

Jared Hess To Direct "NickToons" Feature

27 January 2016 8:26 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon have enlisted "Napoleon Dynamite" writer/director Jared Hess to direct "NickToons" which he'll also co-write with his wife Jarusha Hess.

Based on an idea by Ali Mendes, the feature sees the signature characters of various Nickelodeon shows coming together to create in an original narrative - a kind of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" but with the likes of "The Rugrats," "Ren & Stimpy," "Rocko's Modern Life," "Aaahh! Real Monsters" and "The Angry Beavers".

Mary Parent ("The Revenant," "Pacific Rim") and Cale Boyter will produce what they hope will be a potential franchise.

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man episode 1 review

25 January 2016 5:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writer: Neil Biswas

Director: Andy De Emmony

Cast: James Nesbitt, Eve Best, Sienna Guillory, Amara Karan, Joseph Gatt, Steven Mackintosh, Burn GormanMark Ebulué and Darren Boyd.

Synopsis: The life of troubled London cop, D.I. Harry Clayton, takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious woman gives him a bracelet that seems to allow him to control luck. Will he use it to bring a killer to justice or win at the casino?

Verdict:

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man is a curious and interesting concept when first faced with its premise and setting. Not only has the mastermind behind Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men channeled his creative genius into a new television series, but it also happens to be a British crime drama starring hilarious Irish actor James Nesbitt. However, this beautiful mixture of components actually forms something quite unique and entertaining.

The episode starts off by introducing the audience to Harry Clayton, »

Crimson Peak,” Guillermo del Toro’s gothic romance drama, will open the 18th annual Roger Ebert Film Festival, host Chaz Ebert and festival director Nate Kohn announced Wednesday.

Edith begins encountering spirits and struggles to comprehend the communications’ connection to her family’s dark history.

Del Toro, whose “genuine visual sense” was once praised by legendary film critic and journalist Roger Ebert, will attend this year’s festival as an honorary guest. One of the writer-director’s earliest films, “Cronos” (1993) — also of the supernatural genre — premiered at Cannes Film Festival in 1993 and went on to nab over 20 international awards. Known »

Blockbusters: are big films all year round a good thing?

17 January 2016 9:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We’re seeing big cinema releases almost every weekend now. But is this a good thing?

Do you remember during 2014, where lots of fans stubbornly declared Captain America: The Winter Soldier the best film of that summer despite its opening in March/April? It was joined by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in trying to steal a march on the competition, but clearly when you think big blockbusters, they’re associated with a certain time of year. And given how for the studios, summer season occupies a full third of the year from May to August, and Christmas the sweet period from November all the way through to New Year, that should be plenty of room for the Avengers, Star Wars and Jurassic Parks of the world, right?

Except that there are plenty more 'tentpoles' (big releases to prop up the studio’s bottom line) being made and »

Guillermo del Toro Developing ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’

14 January 2016 3:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guillermo del Toro has come on to produce a movie version of “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” with an eye to directing the project.

The project is based on the trilogy of books by Alvin Schwartz, which includes illustrations by Stephen Gammell and sold more than 7 million copies worldwide. John August has written the screenplay but plot details are being kept under wraps.

Sean Daniel, Jason Brown and Elizabeth Grave are also producing.

The trilogy includes “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” (1981), “More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” (1984) and “Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones” (1991). Schwartz drew from folklore and and urban legends for content.

The collection was often banned by the American Library Association due to being considered too scary for children — particularly the nightmarish illustrations. Del Toro is repped by Wme and Exile Entertainment.
