St. Louis: We Have Passes to an Advance Screening of ‘Geostorm’ Up For Grabs!

17 October 2017 7:22 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Fiends! Who loves disaster films?! We have some passes to an Advance Screening to Geostorm on Wednesday, October 18. We’ve made this one super simple for you as well.

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world’s leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong—the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything…and everyone along with it.

Dean Devlin (writer/producer, “Independence Day”) makes his feature film directorial debut with suspense thriller “Geostorm,” starring Gerard Butler (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “300”), Jim Sturgess (“Cloud Atlas”), Abbie Cornish (“Limitless”), Alexandra Maria Lara (“Rush”), Daniel Wu (“The Man with the Iron Fists,” “Warcraft: The Beginning”), with Oscar nominees Ed Harris (“The Hours, »

Gerard Butler was rushed to hospital today following a motorbike accident. According to reports, he was riding his Harley Davidson through Los Angeles when a car cut him off, causing him to crash. He is understood to have escaped serious injury, suffering only a few cuts and bruises.

A passer-by quickly alerted the emergency services after the accident took place. The Paisley-born actor, who has previously joked about his susceptibility to accidents, is now recovering and is expected to continue work on promoting his latest film, Geostorm, by the end of the week.

Butler was hospitalised in 2011 after he nearly drowned while filming surf drama Chasing Mavericks, and again the following year when he broke two bones in his neck while filming Olympus Has Fallen.

Geostorm provides Butler with another action role as he goes up against a natural disaster unleashed when climate control satellites stop working as planned. »

2013 was a big year for fictional movie thrillers involving the President of the United States, with Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down both blasting into theaters within three months of each other. Those were simpler times when movies about the president didn’t pale in comparison to the hellish nightmare of the behavior of the actual […]

Why are babies allowed into 18-certificate parent and baby screenings?

20 September 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 21, 2017

Parent and baby screenings of mother!? Aren't babies held to the same BBFC certificates as the rest of us? Well, sort of...

The first film that my youngest child watched in a cinema was Olympus Has Fallen. He knew next to nothing about it, given that he was less than a year old and fast asleep. But I’ll always be conscious of the fact that the first time he went to the movies, he snuck in underage. Because technically, he wasn’t supposed to be there.

It sounds a small thing, but Olympus Has Fallen was given a 15 certificate in the UK, yet clearly, my then tiny child was 14 years and counting shy of that. The cinema in question could have got into serious trouble for admitting someone underage, that it technically did. It is actually an offence, with a punishment.

Chinese Firm Abandons $100M Acquisition of Avi Lerner's Millennium Films

30 August 2017 7:37 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The latest China-Hollywood dealmaking casualty has arrived: Avi Lerner's $100 million plan to sell majority control of Millennium Films to Beijing's Recon Group is officially dead.

The deal included Millennium’s library and gave Recon the option to buy out the remaining shares of Millennium at a later date.

But the Chinese firm reported to the Shenzhen stock exchange late Wednesday that the agreement had failed to meet an Aug. »

In 2013, Olympus Has Fallen came out to a poor reception from critics but a much more positive response from movie-goers. For proof, look no further than the fact that it earned more than $170 million at the box office on a $70 million budget, which was enough to convince its studio to launch a franchise. As a result, a sequel called London Has Fallen came out in 2016, which was even more successful in a commercial sense in that it earned more than $205 million at the box office on a $60 million budget. Now, there is news that

‘Walking Dead’ Season 8 Resumes Production After Stuntman’s Death

17 July 2017 4:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Production on “The Walking Dead” Season 8 has resumed after being shut down last week following the death of series stuntman John Bernecker, AMC confirmed to Variety on Monday.

Last Wednesday, Bernecker was filming a scene with series regular Austin Amelio. The scene called for Bernecker to fall approximately 20 feet off of a balcony onto a safety cushion. But assistant director Matthew Goodwin told the Coweta County Sheriff’s office that Bernecker did not appear to get “a good separation” from the balcony and attempted to abort the jump by grabbing onto the balcony with both hands, according to the incident report obtained by Variety. His momentum caused him to slam into the bottom of the balcony, which made him lose his grip and fall, missing the safety cushion by “just inches.” He landed on his head and neck, with an on-site medic immediately rendering aid.
