Strangers Things Casts Cary Elwes And Jake Busey For Season 3

Stranger Things season 3 is set to begin filming later this month and, ahead of the Netflix phenomenon once again going in front of the cameras, two exciting new casting additions have been revealed to be moving to the weird and frightening town of Hawkins.

Cary Elwes – familiar to modern horror fans as Dr. Lawrence Gordon in the Saw films – is joining the ensemble cast as Mayor Kline, suggesting that season 3 will finally introduce us to the mayor of Hawkins. With all the odd shenanigans going on in the town, we expect him to be a very shady individual indeed. Meanwhile, Jake Busey – set to star in the upcoming Predator – is set to play a man named Bruce. That’s all we know about his role for now, though.

Elwes should definitely be right at home on Stranger Things, as he’s yet another cast member who’s previously appeared in a fondly-remembered classic 1980s movie.

Cary Elwes and Jake Busey Join the Cast of Stranger Things Season 3

Even though we'll have to wait a while before re-entering the Upside Down, there is still plenty to get excited about when it comes to the small town of Hawkins. A Stranger Things maze was recently announced for Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood, Orlando, and Singapore, and now two new additions to the cast have been announced.

Netflix revealed that Cary Elwes will play Hawkins Mayor Kline in season 3 of Stranger Things. "Handsome, slick, and sleazy," Kline has been described as being a "classic 80s politician" who is "more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs."

Jake Busey, who will co-star in the new Predator movie, is also coming on board to play "a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor."

Elwes and Busey join the cast of surviving characters from the first two seasons,

The Voice of Optimus Prime is also The Predator: Vocalizations by Peter Cullen

It’s very cool to think that Peter Cullen is the voice of Optimus Prime and the Predator. His vocalizations are so great that you can hear Optimus Prime when he speaks, even if he’s not doing the voice. But when he does the sounds for the Predator it’s just amazing. It’s even better to realize just where he got the sound for the Predator, from a horseshoe crab he can recall seeing upside down on a beach when he was younger. Obviously those kinds of memories are great for people that do vocalizations, as they can draw from just about

Yep, There's a Human Being Inside That Robot Suit in Netflix's Lost in Space

Image Source: Netflix

As expected, one of the most memorable characters in Neflix's reboot of Lost in Space ends up being the mysterious robot. Like the rest of the characters, including the Robinson family and the is-she-or-isn't-she-evil Dr. Smith, the robot receives a major makeover from the original '60s sci-fi series that aired on CBS. Instead of the original's blinking silver accordion, or the friendly, almost toy-like appearance of the robot in the 1998 film, the latest iteration of the robot is slick, futuristic, and reminiscent of the creatures in Alien and Predator. Inside of the hulking metal exterior, however, is a regular human being, one who you might not realize you've seen before.

Brian Steele plays the show's robot, which ends up being a surprisingly sympathetic character despite its lack of dialogue and its unfortunate tendency to transform into a hulking, whirring, killing machine when threatened. Will (Maxwell Jenkins

Hallmark Reveals Their ‘Freddy vs. Jason’ Itty Bittys

As John Squires earlier noted, a few years back, Hallmark started giving some love to the horror genre with their annual holiday ornament collections, to date surprising us with ornaments based on films such as Jaws, Aliens, Predator and Frankenstein. We’re hoping that we’ll be getting more horror-inspired ornaments for Christmas 2018, but it’s too early to know. What we […]

Shane Black's The Predator Has Gone Through Extensive Reshoots That Drastically Changed The Third Act

Writer and director Shane Black has been hard at work shooting The Predator. Apparently, the film has gone through some extensive reshoots recently and thanks to co-star Keegan-Michael Key we know just how important those reshoots have been. While talking to CinemaBlend, he reveals that Black reshot nearly the entire third act of the movie!

“We just finished [reshoots] last week, and just about three-quarters of the third act was rewritten. And Shane Black is… he’s just a consummate professional, and a consummate writer. He’s a wordsmith! It was a really, really exhilarating experience, and I think that he’s still one of our most vibrant writers of cinema.”

I know a lot of people see reshoots as a bad sign, but in most cases, they help make the film better. Remember, Rogue One went through a shit-ton of reshoots but it ended up being a great Star Wars film.

‘The Predator': Most of Third Act Was Rewritten, Says Keegan-Michael Key
Keegan-Michael Key says reshoots on Shane Black’s “The Predator” reboot changed most of the movie’s third act.

“We just finished [reshoots] last week, and just about three-quarters of the third act was rewritten,” Key told CinemaBlend. “And Shane Black is… he’s just a consummate professional, and a consummate writer. He’s a wordsmith! It was a really, really exhilarating experience, and I think that he’s still one of our most vibrant writers of cinema.”

Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Yvonne Strahovski and Boyd Holbrook star in the remake. Holbrook stars in the film as an ex-Marine who discovers the existence of the titular alien species and is forced to lead the fight against them. Jacob Tremblay (“Room”) plays the marine’s son, an autistic boy who is bullied in school but becomes vital to his father’s mission as his ability to quickly learn languages proves to be a valuable tool.

The Predator” will be the first installment in the “Predator” series since 2007’s “Alien vs. Predator: Requiem.” Black co-wrote the screenplay with Fred Dekker (“Monster Squad”).

The original “Predator” movie came out in 1987 and famously starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of an elite special forces team on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla territory in Central America — before being hunted down an advance alien life form.

The Predator Reshoots Have Changed Almost The Whole Third Act

Although it could be argued that the Predator franchise is rather hit or miss, there’s no denying that the creature itself remains among the most iconic in science fiction/horror history. Having always been a marvel when it comes to prosthetic-based costume design, it likely gives moviegoers nightmares to this day – regardless of whether they’re able to get to the choppa before waking.

As for which entries in the franchise resonated most with audiences, one could say that the original flick starring Arnold Schwarzenegger was the only to achieve “classic” status, but the sequel does have its supporters. Still, those that followed – namely a couple crossover films with Alien and 2010’s Predators – proved to be a bit more divisive, but we’re hoping that director Shane Black’s upcoming effort will set things right.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a general feeling of unease surrounding the pic at the moment.

Movie Review – Rampage (2018)

Rampage, 2018.

Directed by Brad Peyton.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, P.J. Byrne, Marley Shelton, Breanne Hill, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Jason Liles, Demetrius Grosse, and Will Yun Lee.

Synopsis:

Primatologist Davis Okoye shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

There is an important distinction worth noticing in the ending credits of Rampage, and it reads “inspired by the video game” rather than outright basing it off of the source material.

Blomkamp's Oats Studios Launches Crowdfunding for a 'Firebase' Film

It's a big day for Oats Studios! Neill Blomkamp's experimental sci-fi filmmaking lab has officially launched a new crowdfunding website option to get enough financing to develop a feature-length version of the short film Firebase (as seen here). The site and funding platform is open today. From Oats: "We want to build a 21st century studio that is funded directly by fans. The more people online that support us the more content we will put out. We want to create an ecosystem where we are directly fueled by the community. Our goal now is the next Firebase film. Help fuel us here. We want to grow and expand, but we need the community’s help." If you've always wanted to support Oats and help them really make more, now is the time to step up. Firebase (originally debuted June 2017) is Neill Blomkamp's experimental idea set during the Vietnam War,

The Predator Trailer Will Drop at CinemaCon, Everyone Else Gets It in May
The Predator trailer is making its debut at CinemaCon this month. Director Shane Black has been teasing that we'll get our first look at the movie soon, but now he's clarified how things are going to go down. Either way, the lucky folks at CinemaCon, which takes place in Las Vegas from April 23 through 26, will be the first to get a sense of what this long-awaited relaunch of the Predator franchise is going to look like.

Shane Black took to Twitter recently to let fans know that the first teaser trailer for The Predator is coming in April.

The trailer will then later be released in theaters, presumably alongside another major release. Black, on an unrelated note, also decided to take the opportunity to showcase his love for Insidious: The Last Key.

‘The Predator’ Trailer Due Mid-April, So Says Shane Black

It doesn’t look like we’ve got too much more time to wait to see some footage from the upcoming Shane Black-directed The Predator. The filmmaker himself took to Twitter over the weekend to update fans when a trailer for the September-released movie would hit theatres and online. At the same time, Black addressed rumours about the film having to undergo reshoots due to demands by the studio. Not true.

Nope! Just busy. Expect a teaser mid-april… how’s this — my brother and I used to actually close our eyes when the theater ran trailers. Wouldn’t it be cool to go in knowing nothing?

— Shane Black (@BonafideBlack) March 30, 2018

The Predator stars Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen, and Thomas Jane. It will reportedly take place somewhere in the middle of the timeline of Predator 2 (1990) and

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s First Words Upon Waking Up After Surgery Were “I’m Back”

On Friday, we reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger had been rushed into emergency heart surgery after his experimental catheter valve replacement failed. Doctors at Cedars-Sinai were ready for this eventuality and were fully prepared to replace the valve at short notice. Mercifully, the operation went off without a hitch and Arnold’s spokesman, Daniel Ketchell, quickly reported that the star was in stable condition after surgery.

Now, we know what his first words were upon waking – and they’re suitably epic. After first opening his eyes and coming to, the star uttered “I’m back,” obviously a reference to his iconic catchphrase “I’ll be back,” which I’m guessing he said just before they anesthetized him and began the surgery. To be fair, if I was Arnie, I’d be saying this before every risky procedure. After all, it’d be a decent silver lining if you were to pop

Fans of the Predator series got very excited when Black was confirmed as the writer and director of the project.

New Predator Photo Returns to the Jungle, Trailer Coming This Week?

New Predator Photo Returns to the Jungle, Trailer Coming This Week?
It won't be long now. Last week, we heard direct from The Predator writer that the first footage was just around the corner. Now we have confirmation from director Shane Black that the trailer is coming soon. Which means we should see it this week sometime. Along with this comes a look at the forest floor, teasing a return to the iconic location from the first movie.

We know that some or most of this new Predator sequel will take place in the suburbs. But that's not the only place we'll see the iconic hunter who once stalked Arnold Schwarzenegger through the jungles of Val Verde in Central America's Northern Triangle. As evident in the image below, we'll get some call backs to the 1987 classic. Black gave this ominous warning.

"Shhhh.... He's coming."

Which can only mean one thing. It's trailer time. The Predator has been described as a true

The Problem With East Asian Action Cinema Today

Tom Jolliffe takes a look at recent trends in East Asian Action Cinema…

I’ve seen a lot of action films in my time. From all over the world. From the biggest blockbusters, to the straight to VHS specials that used to regularly populate your nearest video store. Whether it was the latest mega budget Schwarzenegger special, or Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson starring in Bloodfist: VIII, I’ve put the hours in.

Like most Westerners my enthusiasm for the genre began with American films. Historically it has been America providing the majority of action films that register worldwide. I grew up on Die Hard, Predator, Lethal Weapon, Bloodsport and every low rent VHS premiere copycat you can imagine (Oh Don…). A little later I discovered Hong Kong and Chinese action films, particularly from that 80’s to early 90’s period of the former which saw ground breaking performers like Jackie Chan

The Predator Brings in Captain America: Civil War Composer

The Predator Brings in Captain America: Civil War Composer
Henry Jackman is going to compose the score for Shane Black's The Predator. Black, who starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original Predator, has been hard at work on the reboot/sequel for a while now, but the project is coming together and will be released in theaters this fall. One of the final pieces of the puzzle has been put into place, as the Captain America: Civil War composer has been tapped to score the original soundtrack for The Predator.

As far as composers in the modern landscape of cinema, Henry Jackman may not be the flashiest name, but he's very capable and prolific. Aside from Captain America: Civil War, some of his credits include Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Kong: Skull Island, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Captain Phillips and Disney's upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet. He's also worked in the video game world,

The Predator Set Footage Surfaces from Sterling K. Brown

The Predator Set Footage Surfaces from Sterling K. Brown
The Predator is currently in the middle of some reshoots in Canada and actor Sterling K. Brown has shared some dark behind-the-scenes footage to tease us with. It was recently announced that the Shane Black-directed movie will also get a 3D release this fall along with the standard theatrical release. However, that really isn't that big of a deal. The real news is that the source of the intel about the 3D conversion is the movie's writer Fred Dekker, who also teased that a trailer was coming real soon.

Sterling K. Brown's behind-the-scenes footage from the set of The Predator takes place in the evening and in the middle of the woods. It looks cold and even though the actors seem to be enjoying themselves, one can tell that there is a dark undertone to the location and the way that the lights are set up. You can clearly see Brown's co-stars Keegan-Michael Key,
