Lady Gaga Wigged Out While Making the Sin City Sequel

23 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

After working with Lady Gaga on Machete Kills, director Robert Rodriguez knew she would have to be his new Sin City sequel. "I told her she had to be in it," Rodriguez told me earlier this week at the movie's Hollywood premiere. "But we needed to find a role small enough that she could do while she was on tour. And then this one popped up." He's referring to Gaga's role as a waitress in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For (in theaters tomorrow). We won't give it all away, but she shares some screen time with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. "We were shooting and it was just a couple of days away," Rodriguez said. "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away »

Long Delay Will Slay 'Sin City' Sequel This Weekend

20 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Over nine years after Sin City opened to $29.8 million, a sequel finally arrives in theaters on Friday. As is the case with most long-wait sequels, A Dame to Kill For should earn substantially less than its predecessor. For the weekend, it will likely wind up in second place behind young-adult adaptation If I Stay.If Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had reached theaters in close proximity to the original, it would be in much better shape right now. With its stark black-and-white cinematography and animated backgrounds, the original Sin City was the first movie that truly looked like a graphic novel come to life. It received positive reviews (78 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and strong responses from fans who clamored for years for a sequel covering some of author Frank Miller's other stories from Sin City.Instead of opening two or three years after the original, it took »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For movie review: meaner streets

20 August 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An unnecessary sequel that’s empty and arduous, little more than vignettes on vengeance and cruel parades of sociopathic power performed as gleefully ultraviolent shadowplays. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): didn’t see a need for a second

I have not read the source material

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

There’s the nihilism of Sin City. A place where wounded men have to remind themselves to “never let the monster out,” and a woman can “makes slaves of men,” and even “good men” are turned on by a woman’s tale of rape (which she invented, of course, because this is Sin City, where you can’t trust a dame). A place where men are nothing but how they can use their rage and women are nothing but how they can use their bodies.

And that’s none of it nice. »

New trailer and clips for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

18 August 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re now only a few days away from the release of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s eagerly-anticipated follow-up to Sin City, and to whet our appetities further a new UK trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has arrived online, along with two clips featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character Johnny. Take a look below…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller »

‘Expendables 3′: Measuring The Sum Of Its Star Parts In Key Overseas Markets

16 August 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Expendables 3 is debuting this weekend in 40 territories including Russia, the UK, Mexico and Australia — and features a powerhouse ensemble that includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and Kellan Lutz.

Together, the cast outweighs the sum of its parts, but the parts are actually quite interesting when looked at in terms of international box-office drawing power, especially in mega markets like China, Korea, Russia, Brazil, and parts of Western Europe. Below, I’ve broken out numbers for some of the individual stars across those markets with a nifty slideshow that covers their last three major titles outside the franchise in these key territories.* The first Expendables film did about $274M worldwide, with $171M from overseas. In an unusual turn of events for a sequel, the franchise’s second film saw its earnings drop in the U. »

Critical Mass: Most 'Expendables 3' reviews not in on the joke

15 August 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Expendables franchise still has some muscle, but its biggest challenge moving forward might be finding new recruits that can provide the same charge for fans of 1980s action movies. In the original film, the draw was the Big Three: Sly, Arnold, and Bruce Willis together, blowing things up old-school. This time around, they’re joined by Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Kelsey Grammer, among others. (Tom Selleck, limber up.)

But the latest Expendables adventure does have a secret weapon, a scenery-chewing villain who is worth a dirty dozen or more middle-aged action stars: Mel Gibson. “Whatever you might think of Gibson, »

Move in on New 2 Bedroom 1 Bath Trailer and Poster

15 August 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

A new trailer and one-sheet have arrived to celebrate the impending theatrical release of Al Bravo Studios and Chemical Mind Studios' new thriller '2 Bedroom 1 Bath'. We must stress that this is in no way connected to the Lionsgate's thriller '2 Br/1 Ba' which stars Alexa Vega ('Machete Kills') and Kathryn Morris even though both titles are concerningly similar. The psychological thriller from writer/director Stanley Yung focuses on a couple whose new 'dream home' isn't quite what they were expecting, particularly highlighted on the new poster by the statment 'Evil Lives Here.' Here's betting that wasn't mentioned on the original listing. The flick stars Michelle Hicks, Andrew W. Walker, Eric Roberts, Costas Mandylor and Dee Wallace. Check out the goods below. »

New clip from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For featuring Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke and Josh Brolin

15 August 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a tonne of clips and TV spots for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For over the past fortnight (included a ‘banned’ Nsfw promo from yesterday which you can watch here), and with a week to go before the film’s U.S. release we now have another, featuring Dwight (Josh Brolin), Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson) and her impressive pair of… guns.

‘The Expendables 3′ lands more punches than it misses

15 August 2014 12:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Expendables 3

Directed by Patrick Hughes

Written by Sylvester Stallone, Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt

 

Family themes are getting a good workout in action movies lately.  From the ragtag team of outlaws in Guardians of the Galaxy to the Pizza Hut dream-team in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, filmmakers need us to know that blood is thicker than water when the shit hits the fan.  That trend continues with Stallone’s latest testosterone booster shot, The Expendables 3.  The old dudes deliver the goods, but the new crew of young, demographically-balanced knuckleheads is utterly forgettable.  Luckily, terrific stunt work and a couple of surprising performances make this a worthwhile mission for fans of ‘80s action shtick.

Things open promisingly enough, with two fantastic action set pieces.  The first involves the remaining Expendables (Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture) busting their buddy (Wesley Snipes) out of a maximum-security train.  Fists, »

Banned TV spot for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

14 August 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen a poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For that was deemed too hot for the MPAA, and a ‘banned’ TV spot for the eagerly-anticipated sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City has now made its way online, and once again it’s Eva Green’s breasts causing the problem. Check out the Nsfw TV spot (which contains nudity, and was surely never intended for TV) below, courtesy of Moviefone…

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – August 11th 2014

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.

In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.

The Remaining: See Alexa PenaVega as rapture survivor in new trailer

8 August 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Alexa PenaVega finds her wedding interrupted by a biblical rapture in the trailer for The Remaining.

Machete Kills actress PenaVega, Don Jon's Italia Ricci and Texas Chainsaw 3D actor Shaun Sipos are among a group of survivors who are left to find out why a large portion of the population all died suddenly.

They also have to contend with frightening creatures as they get to the bottom of whether a rapture has occurred or whether something altogether more sinister is afoot.

The Remaining has been directed by Casey La Scala, who also wrote the screenplay with Chris Dowling.

La Scala has previously produced the Bryan Dechart-directed thriller El Remanente.

This new film will open in cinemas later in the year. »

Alexa Vega Puts the Sin in New Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Poster

8 August 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

After raising a few eyebrows in 'Machete Kills' it appears that the now very grown up Alexa Vega is once again flaunting her sexuality on this latest character poster from Rob Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'. The 25 year old actress is certainly putting her innocent 'Spy Kids' days well and truly behind her and is bringing her cheeky side out once more playing the role of Gilda in the upcoming noir sequel. Vega stars alongside Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin ('Oldboy'), Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), Jaime King, Juno Temple ('Magic Magic'), Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Jamie Chung, Dennis Haysbert, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Joseph Gordon-Levit ('Looper') and Jeremy Piven ('Entourage'). Head below for the poster. »
