As we all know by now, beloved director Shane Black has taken on the task of rebooting the classic 1987 Predator in the role of director and co-writer. Filming started on Monday in Vancouver so it was only a matter of time before we heard the tiny footsteps of a new cast member announcement. We can now report that Game of Thrones actor, Alfie Allen has joined the cast in this epic revival which originally starred Arnold Schwarzenegger.
After bringing on board Room’s Jacob Tremblay and X-Men Apocalypse’s Olivia Munn we’ve had to wait far too long for any mention of new cast to the sci-fi thriller. Moonlight actor, Trevante Rhodes, plays another ex-Marine and Boyd Holbrook’s, who will be seen from next week in Logan, best friend.
Allen will play an ex-Marine. Olivia Munn is a scientist, »

British actor Alfie Allen, whose screen credits include Game Of Thrones and John Wick, has reportedly joined the cast of The Predator, Shane Black‘s new take on the action/ horror franchise. More on the Alfie Allen Predator news below.
The film kicked off shooting Vancouver, Canada on Monday, with Black posting the following photo, which shows off some of the existing cast members Boyd Holbrook (who is so, so good in the upcoming Logan), Jacob Tremblay, Sterling K Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane and Olivia Munn.
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision, Allen will play an ex-marine who teams with several other outsiders, including one played by Holbrook, to stop the human-hunting creatures in a setting that hasn’t yet been seen in a Predator movie: suburbia.

Long after he played Hawkins in the original, Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, The Nice Guys) is returning to the Predator franchise as director and co-writer, re-uniting with fellow Monster Squad scribe Fred Dekker, on the highly anticipated The Predator, a sequel to, and not total reboot, of the classic sci-fi series. Filming is kicking off today, and Black has shared with us the first lookout the movie’s cast, made up of lead Boyd Holbrook (next seen as Pierce, leader of the Reavers, in Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan Michael-Key (one part of comedic duo Key & Peele), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Sterling K. Brown (The People vs. O.J. Simpson), and Room’s Jacob Tremblay. Missing from the image is The Punisher himself, Thomas Jane, whose involvement was announced few weeks back. No reason is given for the military garb, but Shane has »

And so it begins! The Predator has officially started production. And to celebrate the occasion, director Shane Black has shared the first photo of the cast along with some good news for longtime fans. The movie will be R Rated. Yes, spines will bleed. The filmmaker shared this latest update on his personal Twitter. He says this.
Partial cast...Beautiful human beings, good people. Also, killers. Cameras roll today. Follow me on Twitter for updates. Wish us luck."
Included in the photo are headlining stars Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan Michael Key, and the very young Jacob Tremblay, who is going to be forced to watch spines bleed in some capacity. Don't believe us? Just look at what Shane Black had to say about the movie and it's R-rating.
"Monday... the hunt is on. And, just to be clear... PG-13 is for pussies. Spines bleed... a lot."
With production gearing up to begin in Los Angeles today, February 20, Black also offered up our first look at his newfound crew of monster hunters. Placing Boyd Holbrook front and center as Special Forces commando Quinn McKenna, up above you’ll be able to lay eyes on X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes and Keegan-Michael Key, along with Room breakout Jacob Tremblay, who’s set to play a crucial role in the fight against the Predators – and that’s Predators plural.
Unlike the cult original, The Predator will relocate the sci-fi action to suburbia, where a team of soldiers joins forces with local scientists – led by Munn’s character – to do battle with the extraterrestrials. It’ll herald something “totally new,” according to Holbrook.
As for that all-important R rating, »

After what seems like a very long wait, The Predator is ready to begin shooting. Director Shane Black is at the helm of this new franchise installment. But apparently, it won't be the sequel we were expecting. Instead, this is a standalone reboot, and though it has been often talked about, it doesn't sound like the Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo is happening. Or is it?
Shane Black follows up the critically acclaimed 1970s noir comedy The Nice Guys with The Predator. And this is a world he's quite familiar with. Black actually starred in the first first Predator, released back in 1987. He played wisecracking Hawkins opposite Schwarzenegger in what has gone onto become a sci-fi classic. It doesn't sound like he'll put himself back in front of the camera. But he has assembled a fine cast that includes Boyd Holbrook in the lead along with Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, »
These days, raunchy studio comedies pride themselves on three necessities: swearing, dick jokes, and anarchy-level chaos. Some recent favorites, including “This is the End” and “The Nice Guys,” succeeded beautifully because they used those components to service the story, characters, location and/or genre, not merely to carry the overall film to the finish line. But such winners are rarities. That’s because, more often than not, you usually end up with something like “Fist Fight,” a loud, broad, meandering, overcompensating misfire consisting of mayhem, delirium, foul language and verbal hostility with little substance.

MaryAnn’s quick take… Thank god this insult of a movie doesn’t try to fool us into believing that the controlling Christian Grey is appealing. That would be even more horrific… I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): appalled by the popularity of this series
I have read the source material (and I loathe it)
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Happy Valentine’s Day! Feels more like Groundhog Day, though, what with demure idiot Ana Steele jumping right back onto the horrific merry-go-round of her “relationship” with Seattle billionaire Christian Grey. It’s more of the same in Fifty Shades Darker that we saw in the first movie, Fifty Shades of Grey: He does something utterly inappropriate to violate her boundaries as a person, she bites her lip and unconvincingly murmurs “Go away,” he gets even more unpleasantly aggressive, and she gives in to him. »

“Violent Delights” was unveiled Monday at the Berlin Film Festival by producers Bruce Nahin and Taylor Laughlin, and executive producer Kelsey Roberts. Production will commence this summer in Paris and Los Angeles.
The film follows a diverse group of musicians and art students who find themselves caught in the crossfire of a Parisian terrorist attack. The story centers on the lead singer of an American punk rock band, played by Kilmer, and two expressionist painters. Their lives parallel a young man from an immigrant family (portrayed by Magomedgadzhiev) as they each search for inspiration in the city of Paris.

With a name to ring a dozen Hollywood bells every time it’s spoken a new film from Sofia Coppola will always bring a measure of excitement. The last film she produced was the Netflix Holiday special A Very Murray Christmas, which she directed and co-wrote with Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer. Before that she stood in the eye of the Californian fame hurricane with 2013’s The Bling Ring, which followed the languid Somewhere from 2010. Today her new film, The Beguiled, had its first trailer revealed and we’re a million miles from Tinseltown.
The film was adapted by Coppola from Thomas Cullinan 1966’s novel A Painted Devil and Don Siegel’s own cinematic adaptation of the story in 1971 (a film which shares the name The Beguiled). The stage is set in 1863, during the American Civil War, at an all-girls boarding school in Mississippi. An injured Union »

Acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola brings you a seductive thriller starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning. Focus Features will release The Beguiled in select cities on June 23, 2017, expanding to more theaters on June 30, 2017.
The Beguiled unfolds in a girls’ school in the state of Virginia in 1864. As the Civil War rages, The Miss Martha Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies has been sheltered from the outside world— until the day a wounded Union soldier is discovered nearby and taken in.
Oona Laurence (who starred on Broadway in Matilda and on-screen in Pete’s Dragon, Bad Moms, and Southpaw), Emma Howard (Transparent), Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys) and Addison Riecke (The Thundermans) Also Star.

Barring the delightful festive treat known as A Very Murray Christmas, it’s going on four years since Sofia Coppola’s last creative effort, The Bling Ring, dazzled moviegoers on the big screen. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the writer-director hasn’t been keeping busy.
In between work on documentaries like The Family Whistle, Coppola has been quietly pulling together a modern remake of The Beguiled, a new, star-studded interpretation on the novel A Painted Devil by Thomas P. Cullinan. Indeed, Cullinan’s period yarn has graced the screen before; back in 1971, director Don Siegel, Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page tackled the family drama, which largely takes place in rural Mississippi during the height of the American Civil War.
