All Predator Films To Be Re-Released On 4K Ultra HD Outside Of North America

Right before director Shane Black offers his take on the feared space hunter, fans in the Czech Republic will be treated to upgraded re-releases of the first three films in the long-running Predator franchise.

4K Ultra HD releases have been announced for 1987’s Predator, 1990’s Predator 2 and 2010’s Predators, plus all three films will also be sold together in special Blu-ray Steelbook. On top of that, the original will be getting its own 3D Blu-ray and 4K Steelbooks. An August 29th release date has been set for all of the above, albeit only in the Czech Republic so far.

Lethal Weapon 5 Might Be Back In Action, According To Richard Donner

Despite previously pouring cold water on the idea, director Richard Donner has hinted that Lethal Finale aka Lethal Weapon 5 might be back on the cards.

We last heard about the project in late 2017, when it was reported it’d reunite Donner, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover for an admittedly rather wrinkly action sequel. At the time, Donner explained that plans had foundered due to difficult negotiations with Warner Bros. Things seem to have changed since then, however, as in an appearance on Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, they listed Donner’s filmography. When they mentioned Lethal Weapons 1-4, he shouted, “And 5 coming up!”

This is far from a cast-iron confirmation, of course, but it does suggest that the studio logjam must have shifted a bit. If the project really were to go ahead, it’d be a rather strange production. Donner is 88-years-old, Mel Gibson is still (deservedly) suffering

Hilariously Wild Red-Band Trailer For Lakeith Stanfield's Sorry To Bother You

I've got a wild new red-band trailer for a new comedy you've got to watch called Sorry To Bother You. This movie looks incredibly fun and very unique in the way it tells its story. 

The film stars Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta) and the story is set in an alternate present-day version of Oakland, "California black telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success - which propels him into a macabre universe." That magical key to success is using his "white voice" to talk to people over the phone. From there, things get wonderfully wacky.

The film also stars Tessa Thompson, and features Danny GloverArmie HammerSteven Yeun, and Terry Crews. The film is set to be released on July 6th! Enjoy the new trailer, which is filled with all kinds of positive buzz!

‘Sorry to Bother You’ Red Band Trailer Released

Annapurna Pictures have new red band trailer and poster have been released for Boots Riley‘s upcoming film, Sorry to Bother you. Sorry to Bother You looks like a more straight forward comedic take of Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street meets Atlanta. And since this is a red band trailer, you know some parental advisory is suggested.

Most of the footage is the same as we have seen in the previous trailer except this time around there’s some explicit language and a sex scene added. Still, it looks really ridiculous and hilarious and makes it on the list of my must sees for the year.

Official synopsis:

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.

The film stars Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta), Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name

Sorry to Bother You Red Band Trailer Takes a Walk on the Wild Side

Sorry to Bother You Red Band Trailer Takes a Walk on the Wild Side
A new red band trailer for Sorry to Bother You has arrived. This marks the directorial debut for Boots Riley, who also wrote the script for what promises to be one of the most unique moviegoing experiences of the year. The new trailer has telemarketers putting on their best "white voice," a very uncomfortable phone call from a telemarketer while people are getting busy and oh so much more.

To get things going, we see someone snorting a ridiculously long line of cocaine, just to set the tone. It only gets more wild from there. This movie looks surreal, imaginative and totally nuts. Much of the footage used in this red band trailer was also included in the first trailer released in March. But this one is packed with F-bombs, borderline nudity and other things of that nature which provide a better idea of the unhinged, bizarre flick that is coming our way this summer.

Written and directed by hip hop artist/producer Boots Riley, the movie stars Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, and Armie Hammer.

The new trailer teases some of the movie’s more inventive tricks, offering an eye-popping introduction to Riley’s wholly original cinematic voice.

Per the official synopsis: “In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.” In his B+ review out of Sundance, IndieWire’s Eric Kohn wrote: “[‘Sorry to Bother You’] foregrounds a series of ludicrous developments based around the

Lethal Weapon 5 Is Still Coming According to Director Richard Donner

Lethal Weapon 5 Is Still Coming According to Director Richard Donner
It looks like Lethal Weapon 5 is still in the works. Even though they all are almost definitely getting too old for this s***, director Richard Donner says that the long-awaited potential sequel isn't dead yet, despite the fact that he, just a few months ago, explained that the legal department at Warner Bros. was getting in the way. Well, it's a little unclear as to what exactly happened or if that has been worked out, but Donner has changed his tone and now says the movie is still coming.

The director, who has helmed every single one of the Lethal Weapon movies so far, recently appeared on an episode of Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast. While he didn't have much to offer, during the intro of the podcast while the hosts were listing off his impressive list of credits, Richard Donner chimed in when they got to Lethal Weapon to say,

Spike Lee’s ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Almost Had a Disastrous World Premiere

The following is excerpted from “Between Screenings,” a memoir by Peter Scarlet forthcoming from Seven Stories Press.

It’s hard to believe 32 years have flown by since Spike Lee first appeared at Cannes, but that’s when Pierre-Henri Deleau, selected “She’s Gotta Have It” for Directors’ Fortnight. Two months earlier, the film’s very successful World Premiere screening had been at the San Francisco International Film Festival. Except it was almost a disaster!

Since we’d screened Spike’s hour-long student film “Joe’s Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads” at Sf in 1983, those of us who programmed the fest were looking forward eagerly to the chance to see his feature debut. When he sent us a copy of “She’s Gotta Have It” we were not disappointed! Not only had he written, produced and directed the new film, he also played one of the leads, and the films’ score was by his father,

The Predator Trailer May Arrive Alongside Deadpool 2 Next Week

By now, I’m sure that many of you reading this who share a love for intergalactic hunters known to have given the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover headaches in years prior are wondering just where the hell the first trailer promoting The Predator may be.

Previously, we’d been told it’d drop sometime in April, but I guess sometimes grownups say things to make us feel better. Well, actually, that did kind of ring true because footage was said to be shown to those fortunate enough to be in attendance at CinemaCon, which was described as containing “lots of blood, action and explosions.” In other words, that’s pretty much what you’d expect from this franchise.

As for the rest of us, we’ve been forced to wait for a time, but it seems like we won’t have to sit tight for much longer.

Studio Sidecar is an offshoot of Studio School Los Angeles, which leverages strategic partnerships, production infrastructure and emerging talent via its training programs to develop and produce innovative content.

“Our production capabilities and industry reach is vast, which lends itself to interesting partnering opportunities and great entry-level opportunities for Studio School students and recent graduates,” Kalison said.

In addition to the Poitier doc, other titles on the production company’s slate include:

• Director Jenni Gold’s “Aaah Roach,” a horror film now in postproduction about flesh eating killer cockroaches that attack a college campus that stars Jason Mewes, Barry Bostwick, Casper Van Dien, Grace Van Dien and Robert David Hall. 21 Rivers and Gold Pictures teamed up with Studio Sidecar Productions to produce.

• Director William Kirkley’s untitled doc about Questa, New Mexico, a town on the brink of extinction after the closing of Chevron mine three years ago. The story follows a group of former miners as they train to become below-the-line film technicians.

• “Esl,” a fact-based thriller developed with Matt Taylor and Ikumi Yoshimatsu’s Rim Entertainment. Set in an international boarding school in Pennsylvania, it follows a group of students who uncover urban legend and expose dark local lore still alive underneath the small town that unleashes a dark evil.

• A multi-digital platform hip-hop dance series from Cameron McLeod, a Radio Disney host known on social media sites as CamdogFX.

Ed Harris movies: 15 greatest films ranked from worst to best, including ‘Apollo 13,’ ‘The Truman Show,’ ‘The Hours’
In Ed Harris‘s over-40-year career he has surprisingly never won an Oscar or an Emmy, despite four nominations from the motion picture academy and two from the TV academy. Emmy voters can start to make up for that this year as the second season of HBO’s “Westworld” premieres on Sunday, April 22. In honor of his return to the small screen, let’s take a look back at some of his best big-screen performances. Tour through our photo gallery above of Harris’s 15 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Harris received his first Oscar nomination in 1995 after almost two decades in front of the camera: Best Supporting Actor for “Apollo 13.” He subsequently competed for “The Truman Show” (Best Supporting Actor in 1998), “Pollock” (Best Actor in 2000), and “The Hours” (Best Supporting Actor in 2002). He didn’t win any of those, and he hasn’t been nominated since,
