Few movie projects have toyed with our emotions as brutally as Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy 3. Ever since 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army left the story of Big Red open to all kinds of possibilities, it seemed only natural that del Toro and Ron Perlman would return to make at least one more movie. Instead, what followed was a lengthy on-again, off-again saga that generated lots of headlines and social media gossip, but nothing more substantial than that.

Antoine Fuqua is developing a movie about Black Panther leader Fred Hampton at Sony as part of a first-look deal he has signed with the studio.

Sylvester Stallone is now leaving the Expendables franchise he helped create, backing away from starring in Expendables 4, despite what would reportedly be the biggest payday of his career. Sources claim that the actor would take in a whopping $20 million for starring in Expendables 4, which we had reported in December would be the final sequel in this action-packed franchise. Still, producer Avi Lerner revealed that he doesn't think Sylvester Stallone is leaving quite yet, so there may still be hope for the actor's return.
Deadline reports that Sylvester Stallone and producer Avi Lerner, whose Nu Image/Millennium company has produced and financed all of the Expendables movies, can't find common ground on the script or who will take over as the new director. Another point of contention is the use of Avi Lerner's own VFX house, the Bulgaria-based Nu Boyana, with Sylvester Stallone reportedly worried about the "underwhelming" results of this franchise. »

As with Deep Impact and Armageddon, White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen there are to be two films released in 2017 focusing on Winston Churchill. Joe Wright is following up his gaze into the Black Mirror with Darkest Hour, which looks at the fight against Hitler in the early days of World War II. An almost unrecognisable Gary Oldman is our Churchill in Wright’s film, alongside Lily James, Rogue One’s Ben Mendelsohn and the late John Hurt in his last filmed role.
Lionsgate have Brian Cox as their Prime Minister in the new film from The Railway Man director Jonathan Teplitzky. Unambiguously titled Churchill, the film sees Cox lead a cast which includes Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, Ella Purnell, Richard Durden, Julian Wadham and James Purefoy.

Gerard Butler has done it all. He’s saved Aaron Eckhart’s President of the United States not once, but twice thanks to Olympus Has Fallen and its bombastic follow-up, London Has Fallen – turns out he won’t be completing the hat-trick, though, as Eckhart has passed up the planned action threequel – battled Persians, and will soon go up against a storm straight out of the Old Testament in this year’s Geostorm.
But with A Family Man, Mark Williams’ (The Accountant) directorial debut revolving around one man’s struggle to reconnect with his nearest and dearest, Gerard Butler is set to trade action for heartfelt drama. Pegged for a release in May, we now have the overly revealing first trailer to peruse, which introduces us to Butler’s career-driven headhunter, Dane Jensen. He’s a man that places work first and family second, but as is often the case, »

If you love disaster movies, then this first trailer for Geostorm should scratch a particular itch, with massive tornadoes, tsunamis, and loads of destruction. come inside to check it out!
I've long been a sucker for disaster/weather movies. The idea of contending with an unstoppable force (nature) and the havoc it can cause is an interesting one and can make for some exciting set pieces. As such, I can't help but feel excited based off this Geostorm trailer:
Let's be honest here...the story, as with Most disaster films, probably isn't going to be all that great, but that's not why I'm going to end up seeing this film. I'm going for the ridiculous amount of awesome destruction on display. What do you guys think?

Wonder Woman isn’t the only 2017 tentpole on the verge of unleashing a new trailer – Geostorm, the long-delayed disaster pic headed up by Gerard Butler, is currently in the process of drumming up excitement ahead of tomorrow’s big reveal.
Embedded below, you’ll find a barrage of blink-and-you’ll-miss them teasers designed to show the international scope of Skydance’s thriller – and make no mistake, this is cinematic destruction on a big, big scale. From a tidal wave inexplicably crashing into Dubai to a pool of lava spewing from Earth’s fractured crust, Geostorm looks set to take the concept of disaster porn and push it to a level not seen since Roland Emmrich’s 2012. Thankfully, the story doesn’t revolve around a bunch of neutrinos mutating; instead, Geostorm sees action veteran Gerard Butler go up against Mother Nature as he fights to “prevent climate-controlling satellites from creating a storm of epic proportions, »

Gerard Butler is to headline a new action movie by the name of Snow Ponies...
Whilst work continues developing a third film in the Olympus Has Fallen series, Gerard Butler is set to busy himself in a new action movie, Snow Ponies. This one’s written by Pat Healy, and the script for it made the 2006 Blacklist of the best unproduced screenplays. The movie is now set to press ahead, with Darrin Prescott directing. It’ll be his directorial debut, following lots of second unit work on the likes of Captain America: Civil War, John Wick and Drive.
Snow Ponies tells the story of seven hardened men (it says here), as they travel across an unpleasant terrain to deliver a package. No idea what the package is, and seemingly, neither do they. Their journey is punctuated by encounters with bandits and assorted obstacles. And they must choose between loyalty to each other, »
