First Look at Denzel Washington in Equalizer 2, Trailer Coming Tomorrow
The first poster and images of Denzel Washington in The Equalizer 2 have arrived online. This marks our first real look at the upcoming sequel ahead of the debut of the movie's first teaser trailer, which will be released tomorrow. This is also the first time that Washington, one of the most accomplished and respected actors working today, has ever done a sequel to a movie in his long, illustrious career. So that in itself makes this something of an important-ish movie, even if it is just a sequel to a better-than-average action movie.

The Equalizer 2 sees director Antoine Fuqua back at the helm as well. This also marks the first time that the filmmaker has made a sequel in his career. Little has been revealed about the movie up to this point, and the first poster takes something of a minimalist, but stylish approach. So that doesn't give

Josh Brolin, who plays Cable in Deadpool 2, has teased a four film arc for the character.

Deadpool was such a massive hit that there seems to be no limit for what can be achieved with the franchise going forward. With Deadpool 2 nearly upon us, one of the film’s stars, Josh Brolin, has talked about the future of his character Cable, and what fans can look forward to down the line.

Speaking to Empire Magazine (via Screen Rant), Brolin, who is also playing Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, said: “We think about it in four movie terms. We tried to think of Cable as a full arc, not just in this movie, but in the trajectory of four films. That made it a lot more fun for me. I don’t like the idea of a franchise, personally, That’s what makes the Thanos thing really great. It’s a finite thing,

Fun First Trailer for Action Film 'Hotel Artemis' Featuring Jodie Foster

"I thought this place was a myth." Global Road Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for an action film titled Hotel Artemis, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Drew Pearce who also wrote the script for this. Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, Jodie Foster plays "The Nurse", a nurse who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals. This is similar to the hotel from the John Wick movies, but clearly much more about patching up and healing people than providing them with more services. The kick ass ensemble cast for this "stylish, high-octane action-thriller" includes Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista. This looks crazy good, with a seriously badass cast that's going to make it very fun to watch. Foster looks gnarly, but Bautista's lines are the best in the trailer. Here's the first official

Exclusive: Scott Adkins on Brutal Comic Book movie Accident Man & why he thinks the Oscars needs a stunt category

The UK comics scene in the 80s was a mixture of playground larks, smart alec troublesome kids, weekly toy advertisements, immaculate footballers and wartime nostalgia. It was boom time for the Beanos, Dandys and many more Saturday morning doormat slappers. But there was a change coming, and spurred on by the noxious odour of Viz and the dystopian adult themes of 2000Ad a new breed of comics came of age in the final decade of the twentieth century.

These new comics catered for kids who had grown up with Dennis the Menace and were ready for something a bit more mature. 1991 was the fateful year, when the Fleetway backed Crisis was joined by 2000Ad man Kevin Mills teaming up with Apocalypse Ltd to bring Toxic! to newspaper shops across the UK.

Deadpool 2 director on assembling X-Force for the superhero sequel

As we’ve seen in the trailers for Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds Merc with a Mouth will be enlisting a few of his mercenary buddies in the superhero series as he assembles his very own X-Force team.

Speaking to USA Today, director David Leitch has been talking about the introduction of X-Force, stating that: “Building a team in the classic style of all action movies, there’s great opportunity for conflict. [Deadpool doesn’t always play well with other] but it’s not because he doesn’t want to. Maybe his fun, never-stop-talking personality is a little grating and people get tired of him. It’s not for lack of his good heart. At the end of the day, he wants to be a better person and do the right thing, and sometimes his thinking is flawed, like all of us.”

Atomic Blonde 2 Is Happening with Charlize Theron

Atomic Blonde 2 Is Happening with Charlize Theron
Atomic Blonde 2 is in the works. Charlize Theron has been taking on more action-heavy roles during this period of her career, with projects like Mad Max: Fury Road and a villain turn in The Fate of the Furious under her belt. But she got the chance to start her very own action franchise with Atomic Blonde last year and that's exactly what she's done, as the spy thriller is getting the sequel treatment, according to Theron.

The 42-year-old actress is currently promoting her upcoming movie Tully, which is about as far from the world of action movies as one can get. During a recent interview, she was asked about the possibility of Atomic Blonde 2 happening. While she couldn't offer much in the way of details at the moment, she did say, "We're working on a sequel." Short, sweet but to the point. Assuming all goes well in the development process,
