From Aliens, to pre-historic pyramids, post-apocalyptic wastelands and swashbuckling saviours…few men in Hollywood have conquered as many different variations of the action genre. Paul W.S Anderson however, has managed to bring his unique style and visual flare to each of these vastly different sequels, crossovers, and video game adaptations. Although some may occasionally question the energetic film maker’s curious directorial choices, few can argue with the huge box office returns his productions receive.
Interestingly, Anderson is also responsible for the only two video game adaptations to spawn successful film franchises, with upcoming instalments currently in the pipeline. With that in mind however, it’s probably a good thing that the fantastic director skilfully sets himself apart from other A-list directors, with his secondary occupation as the husband of Milla Jovovich arguably earning him just as much attention.
Thankfully, Anderson managed to find time in his busy schedule of Zombie shooting, »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.
If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

In Nicolas Cage's long, glorious, and bizarre filmography, Outcast could be more than a minor curiosity. The directorial debut of Nick Powell (stunt coordinator on Resident Evil: Retribution), Outcast takes place during the Crusades, and Cage plays Gallain, a rebellious outlaw who teams up with Arken (Hayden Christensen, who, to my surprise, is still in the acting business), a young man looking for redemption by protecting the rightful heir to the Chinese throne. If you needed more proof of China's growing power in the global film market, look to Outcast. First Cage; tomorrow: The World. But in the meantime, they only have Cage, or, more specifically, Cage trying to do a British accent, which is about as wonderful as you'd expect. Hit the jump to check out the Outcast trailer. The film will be released on February 27, 2015, and also stars Yifei Liu, Fernando Chien, Andy On, and Byron Lawson. »

The trailer for Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen's upcoming fantasy action film Outcast has been released, and it actually looks good, which is something I haven't said about a Cage film in a very long time. On top of that, it seems like I haven't seen Christensen in a movie forever, so it's good to see that he found something to do. It doesn't look like the greatest movie in history, but it should provide some solid entertainment.
The film is set in 12th century China, and it follows a mysterious warrior who teams up with the daughter and son of a deposed Chinese emperor to defeat their cruel uncle, who wants them dead.
The movie was directed by stunt pro Nick Powell, who worked on films such as The Bourne Identity and Resident Evil: Retribution. There are a few really cool-looking shots in the trailer, and it looks »

Outcast is the directorial debut of stunt coordinator Nick Powell (Resident Evil: Retribution) and stars the one and only, Nicolas Cage as the White Ghost. Cage seems crazier than ever in this film about a mysterious warrior who teams up with the daughter and son of a deposed Chinese Emperor to defeat their cruel Uncle, who seeks their deaths. Not much else i known about the film except that it is slated for release on September 26, 2014 in China and February 27, 2015 in United States, and also stars Hayden Christensen. Watch the trailer below. Enjoy!
A battle is defined in the movie Outcast (2014), between the Uncle of the children of Chinese Emperor and a mysterious warrior. This mysterious warrior stands by the side of the Chinese Emperor to protect and return their rights to them.
Outcast (2014) tells the story of a prince and her sister the princess who are left behind »
Nicolas Cage is “The White Ghost” in Arclight Films’ Outcast, an English-language period action pic set in 12th century China that also stars Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu (The Forbidden Kingdom).

Filming on the sixth installment of the Resident Evil horror franchise has been postponed from its fall start to next year, Constantin Film officially announced today. And with good reason: series star Milla Jovovich and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter writer-director husband Paul W.S. Anderson are expecting their second child. Jovovich broke the baby news this week on Facebook. The South Africa shoot slated to begin this fall will now be pushed by 10 months. The Resident Evil franchise has collected over $915 million in worldwide box office to date, and the most recent installment, Resident Evil: Retribution, was released in 2012.

In the past I have made no secret of my love for the long-running Resident Evil series, and to this day I continue to express my enthusiasm and excitement for the globe-trotting, adrenaline-fueled, Zombie film franchise. Unfortunately however, the sixth (and final) instalment in the series has been subject to quite a few setbacks ever since its greenlight in early 2013.
With 2012′s Resident Evil: Retribution once again performing brilliantly at the world wide box office, it seemed like a no-brainer (terrible pun intended) for Sony and Screen Gems to produce a further sequel. With Paul W.S. Anderson all set to write and direct the next film once again, a September 2014 release date seemed more than achievable. However, the film was delayed until next year after production on Anderson’s Pompeii required the director’s attention for much longer than previously anticipated. Now, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has been delayed once again, »

Two worlds will collide in the Us/China co-production action period piece Outcast. Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen star as exiled Crusaders entering medieval China and protecting Yifei Liu (aka Crystal), as princess Zhao Lian, from her evil brother, played by Andy On. The film marks the directorial debut of Nick Powell, who has extensive experience as a stunt coordinator, with recent credits including Resident Evil: Retribution and The Three Musketeers. When the heir of the Imperial throne becomes the target of assassination by his despised older brother, the young prince's only hope is the protection of his sister, and the reluctant aid of war-weary Crusader, Arken (Hayden Christensen), who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of the legendary Crusader-turned-bandit, Gallain (Nicolas Cage),...

As Marvel celebrates another huge opening for Guardians of the Galaxy, with the film pulling in a hefty $160 million debut at the global box office, Paramount Pictures and Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has hit a landmark, with the fourth instalment in the blockbuster Transformers franchise becoming the first movie of 2014 to cross $1 billion worldwide. Age of Extinction has earned $241.1 million domestically and $763.8 million from international markets for a combined gross of $1.004 billion to date, which makes it the second-biggest earner of the series behind Transformers: Dark of the Moon ($1.123 billion), as well as the eighteenth-highest grossing movie of all time.
Transformers: Age of Extinction sees Michael Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver »

It may have lost top spot at the box office to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has pushed its worldwide haul to a whopping $886 million this weekend, further extending its lead as the highest-grossing movie of the year as well as surpassing the $709. million of the original Transformers and the $836.3 million of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A billion looks all but assured for Age of Extinction, while the franchise high of $1.123 billion set by Transformers: Dark of the Moon is certainly an achievable target.

Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past’s stay as the biggest earner of the year didn’t last long, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction shrugging aside almost universal negative reviews to become the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far, with a whopping $752 million worldwide just three weekends after its release. The fourth instalment in the Hasbro franchise looks set to become the first (and only?) release of the year to crack a billion – although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may have something to say about that.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

Thor and Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor’s hotly-anticipated reboot of the Terminator franchise has gained another cast member. According to Deadline, Big Love and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters alum Douglas Smith has just landed an as-yet-unidentified role.
With the film currently shooting in New Orleans, it’s likely that it won’t be a huge part, though I could easily see him playing a young John Connor. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see until the film opens on July 1, 2015 to find out.
Written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry), this film is a quasi-reboot/sequel/relaunch of the beloved Terminator property, and is meant to spark a new trilogy. Arnold Schwarzenegger is reprising his role as the titular killing machine, and will be joined by new cast members.

Here’s a clue: box office record-breakingly well.

After graduating from the HBO series Big Love with roles in Ya adaptation Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and horror comedy Stage Fright, Douglas Smith is continuing to rise in Hollywood with news that he’s landed a supporting role in Paramount’s hotly anticipated franchise reboot Terminator: Genesis.
No information yet on who Smith is playing, but the film is currently rolling cameras in New Orleans, so I can’t imagine it’s an especially important part. Regardless, Smith is a talented young actor, and it’s exciting to see his star rise with a role in a tentpole as surely lucrative as Terminator: Genesis.
The movie, directed by Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor, is currently shooting. The script was written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) with an eye to igniting a new trilogy of Terminator movies for Paramount, »

The box office juggernaut that is Transformers: Age of Extinction just keeps on rolling. One day after becoming China’s highest-grossing movie ever, the Michael Bay-directed sequel has now passed the $600 million mark worldwide, with a domestic haul of $185 million and an international take of $421.2 million giving the film a whopping $606.5 million already. It’s surely only a matter of time before Age of Extinction overtakes Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past to become the biggest earner of the year so far, and at this stage it looks all but assured that it will go on to become the first billion dollar release of 2014.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer »

Prior to the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction, there was a deal in place between Paramount and motor vehicle company Polaris for them to create Transformers based off their machines. These would have included ATVs, snowmobiles etc. For whatever reason, the deal didn’t go through and the characters were scrapped.
Michael Hirtz (via Cbm) has now shared some of his concepts for what those Transformers would have looked like. They also write, “he informs us that these robots would’ve been relatively small as compared to the normal-sized Transformers. Somewhere around 8-10ft max, based on the types of vehicles Polaris manufactures. Hritz’s designs also do a great job of incorporating the look of Polaris’ vehicles by ‘exposing shocks and linkages, using roll-cages and vehicle structure, aggressive/colorful forms floating over blacked-out mechanical parts.’”
