‘Beyond Skyline’ Trailer: A Sequel That Looks Astonishingly Better Than the Original

10 October 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Beyond Skyline sounds like and technically is a sequel, but it looks and acts like an original film. Taking place concurrently with the events of 2010’s Skyline, Beyond Skyline uses the occasion to give the widely forgotten sci-fi film a makeover — thanks to the efforts of buzzy stars Frank Grillo and The Raid and The Raid 2’s Iko Uwais. The Frank Grillo-ssance continues, […]

‘Sleepless’ Blu-ray Review

12 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan, Scoot McNairy, David HarbourDermot Mulroney | Written by Andrea Berloff | Directed by Baran bo Odar

The English-language debut of Swiss director Baran bo Odar delivers nothing of what we want, namely: half-decent action, interesting characters, witty writing, or surprising plot deviations.

Jamie Foxx plays Vegas cop Vincent Downs, whom we first meet in the throes of a violent robbery. He’s stealing a whole bunch of cocaine, which belongs to a casino owner named Rubino (Dermot Mulroney). Problem is, Rubino himself owes it to fearsome gangster Novak (Scoot McNairy), who in turn is in thrall to his megalomaniac father.

After his son is kidnapped by Rubino’s thugs, Downs tries to return the drugs. But he is confounded by Internal Affairs partners Bryant (Michelle Monaghan) and Dennison (David Harbour); suspecting corruption, they step in to disrupt the deal. But in doing so they instigate a sleepless night of fighting, »

‘Apostle’: First Photo and Plot Details for ‘The Raid’ Director Gareth Evans’ Next Film

6 May 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We won’t be seeing the follow-up to “The Raid 2” anytime soon, but Gareth Evans isn’t exactly resting on his laurels. The writer/director began shooting “Apostle” last month, and we now have a first-look photo and synopsis for the cult thriller starring Dan “Cousin Matthew” Stevens.

Read More: ‘Apostle’: Dan Stevens to Star in ‘The Raid’ Director Gareth Evans’ Cult Thriller

Here’s the synopsis: “The year is 1905. Thomas Richardson travels to a remote island to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a mysterious religious cult demanding a ransom for her safe return. It soon becomes clear that the cult will regret the day it baited this man, as he digs deeper and deeper into the secrets and lies upon which the commune is built.”

‘Headshot’ Review

5 May 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Iko Uwais, Chelsea Islan, Sunny Pang, Very Tri Yulisman, Julie Estelle, Ario Bayu, Yayu A.W. Unru, Zack Lee | Written by Timo Tjahjanto | Directed by Kimo Stamboel, Timo Tjahjanto

Following the standard set by a certain punchy tower-block inhabiting modern classic, any Indonesian action movie is going to have their work cut out for them for the next decade or so. Even that film’s own follow-up, The Raid 2 (come on, you knew what we were talking about) paled in comparison to its predecessor, which Judge Dredd himself struggled to live up to.

Taking a jab at the crown is Headshot, an equally violent, no-holds barred action movie which stars none other than The Raid’s Iko Uwais. Shot in the head (hence the title) and left for dead, amnesiac ‘Ishmael’ washes up on an Indonesian shore and, after a short coma, is nursed back to health by lovely »

Mulan: can it work as a live-action movie?

29 April 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Katie Smith-Wong May 31, 2017

With plans afoot for a live action take on Mulan, we look at the challenges facing Disney...

After more than 50 years of making animated features, Disney have now turned their attention to live-action adaptations of their famous films. After releases such as 101 Dalmatians (1996), Maleficent (2014) and Cinderella (2015), the studio's new creative direction has earned critical acclaim and financial success.  It is also making its mark on the global box office, as the recently released Beauty And The Beast remake has earned small change in the region of $1.2bn and counting.

Among the upcoming remakes planned is Mulan, which already has fans of the 1998 Disney film debating about its faithfulness to the animated feature. That's especially so given reports about director Niki Caro's indecisiveness regarding the inclusion of songs such as Honour To Us All and I'll Make A Man Out Of You, as well as the »

Hooked on a Feeling: Remembering Guardians of the Galaxy

28 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the sequel on release now [read our review here], Sean Wilson casts his mind back to summer 2014 when the original Marvel adventure became the true underdog champ of blockbuster movies…

A kindly tree-like creature named Groot illuminates a series of spores, imbuing his superhero misfit buddies with a profound sense of wonderment. Tyler Bates’ score soars off the back of a beautifully managed synthetic/choral arrangement. The integration of CGI with physical actors is exquisitely handled. And it’s official: Guardians of the Galaxy has, against all the odds, become one of my favourite Marvel movies of all time.

Like many great movies, it’s tempting to begin midway through the action. But let’s back up a bit.

It’s July 2014. I’m more than midway through what has been an extremely strong year for cinema encompassing, among others 12 Years a Slave, Under the Skin, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Raid 2, »

Great Job, Internet!: They did some disgusting stuff to make the sounds in Fight Club

26 April 2017 10:54 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Most films aren’t necessarily interested in depicting violence honestly. If they did, most fights would be over after the first punch, and then we wouldn’t have movies like The Raid: Redemption, The Raid 2, and well, every other action movie that isn’t part of The Raid franchise.

Other times, the authenticity of violence is part and parcel of a film’s raison d’etre, as is the case of Fight Club. As this new video from Film Radar shows, the tried-and-true sounds of socking wouldn’t play out in a movie that aims to depict the real damage fists can cause.

By talking to Fight Club sound designers Ren Klyce and Richard Hymns, Film Radar gets a glimpse into the tools the duo used to create the wet, crunchy thwocks of the film’s fight »

The 50 Greatest Car Chases in Film: Part 2

19 April 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Fast and Furious movies aren't the only ones with great car chases. Join us as we take a look at the 50 best car chase scenes in film. This week, we're counting down from #25 to #1!

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

Review — ‘The Fate of the Furious’ Is Little More Than a Loud Family Reunion

14 April 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Fate of the Furious’ Is Little More Than a Loud Family ReunionThe only thing furious here is the slapping of keyboards as hackers wage war.

If you look up “unlikeliest franchises” in the dictionary, well, you’re a fool, because that’s not how dictionaries work. But if they did, and if you did, the picture you’d see staring back at you from what has now become a picture dictionary of some sort would probably be of Vin Diesel grimacing behind the wheel of a car while flaming semi-trucks do wheelies out his back window. What started with the simple joys of street-racing in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious has morphed into the biggest and silliest film series out there.

After peaking with Fast Five in 2011 the franchise left that film’s perfect balance of beautiful, ridiculous action and entertainingly silly writing to tilt further and further into full-on, regrettably »

The 11 Best Car Chase Scenes of the Last 10 Years — Watch

11 April 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With the eighth (!!) “Fast and Furious” feature zooming into theaters, it’s time to look back and marvel at some of the past decade’s other big achievements in high-octane action. While the Vin Diesel-starring franchise might have a monopoly on auto-based mayhem, a slew of other features have made a solid case for their ability to wield cars (and very, very good drivers) as weapons of major entertainment.

Netflix Acquires ‘The Raid’ Director’s Revenge Thriller ‘Apostle’

Late last year, we learned that The Raid and The Raid 2 director Gareth Evans has a new film brewing. It’s a period revenge thriller called Apostle, and it stars Dan Stevens, who’s having quite the moment right now between his turns in Legion and Beauty and the Beast. Now, Netflix has just acquired global distribution rights […]

Netflix picks up Apostle from The Raid director Gareth Evans

After the incredible bone-crushing action of The Raid and The Raid 2, Gareth Evans has more than earned my attention. Unfortunately it's been a bit of a wait for Evans' next project, a period revenge thriller by the name of Apostle, but, thanks to Deadline, we know where we'll be able to find it once it's released: Netflix.

SXSW 2017 Review: Atomic Blonde Puts Charlize Theron’s Lethal Skills on Full Display

21 March 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While stuntman-turned-director David Leitch may be best known for his work on John Wick (and he’s also been tapped to helm the upcoming Deadpool 2), throughout his career he’s specialized in delivering all kinds of incredible action sequences for nearly 20 years. So while it may be easy to connect (on paper) the recent hit actioner starring Keanu Reeves and Leitch’s latest, Atomic Blonde, featuring the always badass Charlize Theron destroying bad guys all over Germany in the late 1980s, the latter confidently and brazenly goes all out, raising the bar for action movies and proving once again that blondes really do get to have all the fun.

The setting for Atomic Blonde is 1989. The Berlin Wall is on the verge of being taken down, and tensions are running high on both the west and eastern sides of Germany, as a list of spies has fallen into the wrong hands, »

Exclusive: Iko Uwais on Headshot, the impact of The Raid & starring in The Force Awakens

3 March 2017 5:03 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Having sat down with Iko Uwais to mark the release of The Raid 2, it was for another Indonesian martial arts thriller that prompted our second meeting, to promote the release of Headshot, out in cinemas across the UK on March 3rd.

It was during a hot afternoon at the Toronto International Film Festival (you can tell he’s more used to the heat than us Brits) where we discussed the latest endeavour, as he explains what attracted him to this movie and the exhausting nature of shooting films so action orientated.

Relying on his interpreter for the crux of the interview, Uwais also talks about his choreography and having full artistic licence in that regard. He also speaks about whether his life has changed following the huge success of The Raid, and whether or not we will see a third entry into the franchise. He also »

The Raid Remake Gets Bad Boys 3 Director Joe Carnahan

15 February 2017 1:50 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Remakes are a very common thing in Hollywood. Often times, a foreign movie will introduce a great concept but not manage to be able to find their way to American audiences. So, a filmmaker or filmmakers will get inspired to retell the story or revisit the concepts in the hopes of bringing the movie to a larger audience. Director Joe Carnahan has now officially confirmed that he is going to attempt this with The Raid and will be directing a "reimagining" of the beloved action flick with Frank Grillo attached to star.

A remake of The Raid has been in the works for quite some time now, but Joe Carnahan, who is known for directing movies like The Grey and the upcoming Bad Boys 3 is now in place as a very important piece of the puzzle. He has worked with Frank Grillo in the past on The Grey and the upcoming action flick Wheelman. »
