Sylvester Stallone And Michael B. Jordan Are Back In The New 'Creed II' Trailer — Watch!

In what universe is it possible that Rocky Balboa is still a thing? Sylvester Stallone launched the iconic boxer back in 1976 with the release of the original Rocky, which went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture of the Year. That film inspired five sequels between 1979 and 2006, and the spin-off film Creed in 2015. Now there's Creed II, which reunites Sly with Michael B. Jordan. Watch the new Creed II trailer below! The first Creed presented the story of Adonis Johnson/Creed (Michael), son of former heavyweight champion Apollo (Carl Weathers), who died in the ring fighting Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). In response, Rocky flew to Russia where he engaged with and defeated Drago, culminating in Rocky being wrapped in the American flag by newly-converted Russian fans. All in all, it was pretty cartoony, but Creed II is promising to pick up threads from that film and

'Creed II' Trailer Pits Adonis Against Drago

'Creed II' Trailer Pits Adonis Against Drago
The match more than 30 years in the making is getting closer.

In the new trailer for Creed II, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) looks to take on the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the Soviet boxer who killed his father Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in the boxing ring. One person who doesn't want to see this battle of legacies is Rocky (Sylvester Stallone), who was there when his best friend Apollo died.

Creed II follows up the 2015 continuation of the Rocky franchise that was directed by Jordan's frequent collaborator Ryan Coogler. This time it's Sundance ...

14 Perfect, Over-the-Top Lines From ‘Predator’ Movies (Photos)

14 Perfect, Over-the-Top Lines From ‘Predator’ Movies (Photos)
As movie franchises go, the “Predator” films have an abundance of iconic, over-the-top, ridiculously quotable lines — way more than a normal film series. It’s likely due to the franchise’s semi-unusual combination of interesting science fiction, ’80s action movie machismo, and surprising willingness to be extremely campy. It results in movies full of lines that are absurd and yet perfectly reasonable when fighting an alien safari hunter that turns people’s skulls into trophies.

Here’s a rundown of 14 great, weird and goofy lines from “Predator,” “Predator 2,” and the newly released Shane Black movie “The Predator.”

“What’s the matter? The CIA got you pushing too many pencils?”

Everyone knows the shot of Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Dillon (Carl Weathers) greeting each other by grabbing hands and flexing their ridiculously big arms, but Dutch’s line making fun of Dillon for getting slightly soft thanks to his desk

‘The Predator’ to Prey on Box Office Competition With $25 Million
The Predator” has found its next feast: its box office competitors.

The Fox release is invading North American multiplexes with an estimated $25 million opening weekend at 4,307 sites, early estimates showed Friday.

The alien franchise film is coming in at the lower end of expectations, which had ranged from $25 million to $32 million. “The Predator” should be able to top the second weekend of Warner Bros.’ supernatural horror hit “The Nun,” which is projected to finish at about $20 million for a 63% decline.

Lionsgate’s opening of mystery-comedy “A Simple Favor” is heading for a sold third place with $18 million at 3,102 sites, coming in well above forecasts in the $12 million to $15 million range. Sony-Studio 8 crime drama “White Boy Rick” is also projected to top recent forecasts at about $10 million from 2,500 screens, battling for fourth place with the fifth frame of rom-com hit “Crazy Rich Asians” and the second weekend of Jennifer Garner’s thriller “Peppermint.

Let’s Talk About Why the Original ‘Predator’ is So Great
What do you get when you mix an invisible hunter-alien with thermal vision, two future U.S. governors, the man who played Apollo Creed in Rocky, and a band of other hypermasculine types in the jungle? To paraphrase Carl Weathers (as himself) in Arrested Development: “Baby, you got a stew going.” It’s a stew of meatheads […]

Box Office: ‘The Predator’ Invades With $2.5 Million on Thursday Night

  • Variety
Fox’s “The Predator” invaded the Thursday night box office with $2.5 million.

A Simple Favor,” starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, reeled in $900,000 from Thursday night previews in North America. “White Boy Rick,” meanwhile, grossed $575,000 in previews.

‘Will & Grace’ Star Eric McCormack Reflects on Road to Walk of Fame
Canadian kid Eric McCormack kept his youthful acting dreams local because he was too ignorant and afraid to figure out how to get to Los Angeles or New York, where he could go for bigger roles. The theater-trained thespian began his career with Canada’s Stratford Festival and traveled to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, paying his dues after the festival closed at the end of each year. It wasn’t until the early 1990s that he moved further west, to Vancouver, to begin his television career in earnest. It all paid off, and McCormack now stars in two series — the “Will & Grace” revival on NBC and “Travelers” on Netflix — and will receive his star Sept. 13 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“I was doing plays in first grade, so for me, it was always that or nothing. I had no fallback position,” McCormack admits.

Review: Predator 4K Blu-ray

  • Comicmix
On Friday, Shane Black’s The Predator will arrive, intending to be a fresh take on the franchise that appears to be playing up the humor. It’s set after the 1987 original and its Predator 2 sequel so acknowledges those events happened, which is cool.

Additionally, 20th Century Home Entertainment has wisely capitalized on the new film by releasing 4K Uhd releases of Predator 4K, Predator 2 4K and Predators 4K.

When the film first arrived, audiences suspected it was another Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick with sci-fi trappings. After all, the one-sheet positioned him, rifle in hand, in the crosshairs of someone. He was paired with Carl Weathers, Bill Duke, Richard Chaves, Jesse Ventura, and so on (including Black back when he acted). What no one was prepared for, though, was John McTiernan’s taut direction and Stan Winston’s amazing alien hunter; the helmet removal moment late in the film stunned audiences.

Carl Weathers and Ken Jeong set for Magnum P.I. guest roles

CBS’ upcoming reboot of Magnum, P.I. has found a couple of guest stars for its first season in Carl Weathers and Ken Jeong, Entertainment Weekly has revealed.

Weathers is set to play Dan, “an old-school Marine who’s struggling to pay his bills as a fisherman. A man of integrity, Dan asks Magnum for help finding a 350-pound tuna he caught that was been stolen. The fish is worth about $350,000, so he’d like it back to help pay off his boat and workers.”

Jeong meanwhile will portray “Lee Ji-Won, a local old-school private investigator who plays poker with Magnum. He may be a colorful dude, but apparently, he gives P.I.s a bad wrap.”

WWE Raw – July 23rd 2018: Results & Review

Welcome to this week’s Monday Night Raw review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a major announcement to get to, as well as a big main event. Let’s get to the action Jackson! Carl Weathers won’t be involved in this, by the way. I don’t know him and he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to appear in a review, especially one that’s just in print. Could you fit a person in a sentence? You’d probably need to keep the sharp points of the letters from piercing their temple. They’d probably get that weird tongue-dangling-out-of-the-mouth look, and that eyes-roll-into-the-back of-your-head motif going on. Is that what a moose looks like if they ram their head into another moose too many times? What the hell was I going to do? Oh, wrestling… I need to get the

Empire Debuts Stunning New Cover For The Predator

The game is afoot.

And we’re not talking about an edge-of-your-seat murder mystery typically associated with Sherlock Holmes, but the full-blown alien mayhem that’s coming our way thanks to The Predator.

Helmed by writer-director Shane Black, who knows a thing or two about the galaxy’s greatest hunter after his turn in John McTiernan’s cult classic (Black played Rick Hawkins opposite the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers), The Predator shifts the sci-fi action to suburbia where a posse of Predators begin scouring the streets in search of some ancient artifact.

What they find, however, is something entirely new, after last month’s gruesome trailer revealed the über-Predator, a being that’s clearly been stitched together in some government laboratory. So it seems the two races have a common enemy, and in honor of The Predator‘s September release, Empire Magazine has dropped a camouflage cover

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in July 2018

July is a slow month for movies on Netflix, but there’s no need to despair. For one thing, that gives you more time to binge the new seasons of brilliant shows like “Glow” and “Dear White People.” For another, what the streaming giant’s latest crop of films lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in “Jurassic Park.” Just when it seemed like “The Last Jedi” might be the biggest blockbuster added to the service this year, Steven Spielberg dropped by with a spectacle 65 million years in the making (and two unsatisfying sequels that suffered the consequences of a much shorter production schedule).

And if dinosaurs aren’t your thing, Netflix is also serving up a handful of breakthrough performances from some of today’s most beloved actresses, and a movie that famously convinced a major Hollywood studio to bet the farm on Ben Affleck.

‘The Predator’ Returns to Conquer Earth in Bloody New Trailer
Fox’s “The Predator,” a reboot of the alien action franchise that launched in 1979, is returning to Earth in a bloody new red band trailer.

The scenario is set by Sterling K. Brown’s character, Will Traeger, who explains, “I’m in acquisitions. I look up and catch what falls out of the sky.”

The footage features several shots of the violent extraterrestrial hunter, who brings chaos to the suburbs.

Brown’s character then warns: “Predators don’t just sit around making hats out of rib cages. They conquered space. That’s not what is on the horizon.”

Shane Black’s new installment follows the titular aliens, who return to Earth, now deadlier than ever before after taking the DNA of other species.

Black is directing from a script he co-wrote with Fred Dekker. John Davis produces. The cast also includes Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn,

Shane Black’s ‘Predator’ Reboot Unleashes Nsfw Trailer With Truly Killer Action (Video)
The latest Nsfw trailer for “The Predator” has been released and it’s just as violent as one would expect from the sci-fi thriller franchise.

In the two-and-a-half minute trailer, we get a tighter glimpse of the action, with a first look at the titular character, who looks just like the iconic beast that preyed on Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers and Shane Black back in the 1987 edition.

The previous trailer, which was released in May, showed a boy (Jacob Tremblay) and his father (Boyd Holbrook) accidentally triggering the aliens’ return to Earth. The video sees Tremblay open a box of alien artifacts that his father came back with after a very far-off expedition.
