Aaron Norris to Direct Stock-Car Racing Movie ‘Maximum Speed’

Aaron Norris to Direct Stock-Car Racing Movie ‘Maximum Speed’
Aaron Norris will produce and direct “Maximum Speed,” the first in a planned franchise tapping into the global market for high-speed car action films such as the “Fast and Furious” movies.

“Maximum Speed” is aimed at taking advantage of the popularity of stock-car racing and the Western culture of bull-riding and honky-tonks. Pre-production will begin upon completion of funding, and filming is scheduled to begin in Texas Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina in the mid-summer or early fall, based on track availability.

Joe Gibbs Racing and Petty Racing have been consulting on the film, assisting with locations, tracks, cars, props, corporate sponsors, and all elements related to the filming of stock-car racing. Executive producer Tristin Fowler, an Oklahoma-based business executive, told Variety that major national sponsors have already committed to the film.

LeToya Luckett Ties the Knot With Tommicus Walker in Texas -- See the Stunning Gown
LeToya Luckett wed Dallas businessman Tommicus Walker in a stunning ceremony in Austin, Texas, on Sunday.

The 36-year-old former Destiny’s Child singer donned an asymmetrical white Vera Wang gown and Christian Louboutin sandals as she walked down the aisle at the Villa Antonia mansion in Texas Hill Country.

Walker, who had his two brothers as best men, meanwhile looked slick in a white Tom Ford suit jacket, black bow tie and black pants.

According to Essence, one of the singer’s maid of honors was Eudoxie Bridges, wife of rapper Ludacris, who was in attendance, along with Luckett's fellow Destiny’s Child stars Michelle Williams and Latavia Roberson.

The site also reports that Pastor John Gray, who stars in The Book of John Gray and is a close friend of the couple, officiated the ceremony.

The pair met after being introduced by designer Nikki Chu, then got engaged on Walker’s birthday in August -- after Luckett

Film Review: ‘Bullet Head’

Film Review: ‘Bullet Head’
Good intentions sometimes come in odd packages, and while one doesn’t doubt writer-director Paul Solet’s sincerity, “Bullet Head” makes his judgment questionable — a vaguely “Reservoir Dogs”-esque crime thriller is not, it turns out, the ideal vehicle in which to plead for humane treatment of actual dogs. Even without that earnest underlying agenda, this slick but ungainly opus would be a curious animal, with its mix of present-tense suspense and (too many) comedic or sentimental flashbacks, as robbers Adrien Brody, John Malkovich and Rory Culkin kill time in a warehouse after a bungled heist.

None of the actors is at his best in the Bulgaria-shot feature, with Antonio Banderas especially thanklessly deployed as a nemesis. Add in dialogue that often labors for wit or profundity; doggy-pov shots and flashbacks; plus the fact that this appeal to canine lovers involves critters that are bloody and torn from illegal fighting matches — a sure turnoff to much of

Movie Review – Bullet Head (2017)

Bullet Head, 2017.

Directed by Paul Solet.

Starring Adrien Brody, John Malkovich, Rory Culkin and Antonio Banderas.

Synopsis:

After a heist gone tragically wrong, three career criminals find themselves trapped in a warehouse with the law closing in. But, inside the warehouse, a more dangerous threat awaits—as the fugitives are plunged into a furious battle for their lives.

A lot is said about movie trailers ruining the experience. You watch a trailer that either shows the major plot points, the biggest laughs and surprises, or outright sell the wrong movie. On the other hand, going to see a movie knowing only the title and maybe who’s in it can also give you the wrong impression. This is to say I was very wrong about the type of movie Bullet Head is.

It all starts with a Pov scene. We look through the eyes of a creature being led by two men.

The Bottom Shelf: Damnation Alley and George A. Romero: Between Night And Dawn

Nick Aldwinckle Nov 27, 2017

Our latest round-up of genre DVDs and Blu-rays covers George A Romero, Damnation Alley and more...

With real life’s ridiculous news stories almost beyond parody, it seems fitting that 2017 was the year we saw George A. Romero, the master of satirical zombie tomfoolery, responsible for horror classics from Dawn Of The Dead through to Tales From The Dark Side, shuffle off this mortal coil. To commemorate three of Romero’s less celebrated early movies, Arrow Video has released the intriguing Between Night And Dawn set on Bluray, with ample extras to sate the most eager fanboy/girl.

First up, and by far the movie most will know (perhaps due to its 2010 remake), 1973's The Crazies plays out almost like a retread of Romero's 1968 debut Night Of The Living Dead, with a group of townsfolk again subject to a dodgy violence-inducing substance whilst military jackanapes try and control the epidemic.

Yes, You've Seen Carol From The Walking Dead on Screen Before

Image Source: AMC Rick Grimes, King Ezekiel, and Maggie Greene might technically run things with the allied squads on The Walking Dead, but it's Carol Peletier who seems to come in on the clutch most often throughout the series. Remember how she handles the terrible business of dealing with the prison's ill population, then takes care of Lizzie, and manages to save everyone from the Terminus cannibal crew, even after being exiled and ostracized by them? That's boss behavior right there. Carol always seems to take her leave from the group just in time to position herself as an outside asset when she's most needed. She has a foresight that's increasingly rare in this generation of act-first-think-later strategists (lookin' at you, Sheriff). Ezekiel and Jerry would certainly be hobbling around looking for brains to munch on if not for her quick thinking this week, and pretty much everyone else can

Chuck Norris Claims Chemicals Used in Mri Scans Poisoned His Wife Gena

Chuck Norris Claims Chemicals Used in Mri Scans Poisoned His Wife Gena
Action star Chuck Norris’ latest fight is against medical device manufacturers and the chemicals used in Mri imaging scans that he alleges have poisoned his wife.

The Walker, Texas Ranger star, 77, filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported. In it, he claims his wife Gena Norris was left weak, tired, with a burning sensation and “debilitating bouts of pain” after being injected by doctors with gadolinium — a paramagnetic metal ion found in so-called contrast agents used to improve the clarity of her MRIs.

Game Of Thrones season 7 recap

Louisa Mellor Dec 11, 2017

With Game Of Thrones season 7 out now on DVD and Blu-ray, here's a run-through of all the major action and story. Spoilers...

Warning: (as you might expect) contains season 7 spoilers.

Game Of Thrones season seven, we hardly knew you. You arrived, secretly fitted all your characters with invisible jet packs so they could zip around whole continents as if they were just popping to the shops, and then in the flap of a dragon’s wing, you were gone. Three episodes shorter than the previous runs, the seventh season solved the show’s annual ‘how to top last year’s massive episode nine’ problem by simply not having one. Genius.

Figuratively though, there was an episode nine in season seven. It was episode four The Spoils Of War. And episode six Beyond The Wall. And a little bit

Et Obsessions: ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Cardi B, 'The Good Place' and More!
Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and this is what we’re most excited about this week:

Why We’re Obsessed With Cardi B

The odds of relative newcomer Cardi B dethroning Taylor Swift’s pop juggernaut, “Look What You Made Me Do,” from the top of the Billboard Hot 100 seemed stacked against her. And yet, as fate would have it, the New York rapper’s infectious debut single, “Bodak Yellow,” has finally landed at No. 1, making the 24-year-old the first solo female hip-hop artist to top the chart since Lauryn Hill in 1998 with “Doo Wop (That Thing).” Her quick ascent is especially impressive considering Cardi has never had a chart presence before “Bodak Yellow.” Now, all eyes are on the former Love & Hip Hop: New York star as fellow artists, including Swift herself, Nicki Minaj and Missy Elliott, have all shown support. But more than anything, it’s hard

Fear Twd Recap: Unhappy Trails to You
But… but we hadn’t even gotten to say, “Hail, hail, the gang’s all here” yet. Nonetheless, Sunday’s Fear the Walking Dead found another member of our long-splintered group bailing on the reunion that showrunner Dave Erickson promised was coming. Can’t say we blamed the character in question for pulling an Ofelia and striking out on their own. But it was still kind of a bummer.

The Walking Dead season 7 recap

With The Walking Dead season 8 arriving this month, here's a recap of the major action from season 7. Major spoilers ahead…

Warning: (as you might expect) contains spoilers.

Negan was the big story of The Walking Dead season seven - who he was, who he’d killed and who would eventually kill him. Plenty of people took a punt at that last one, but Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character survived it all to swing Lucille another day. Season eight promises an all-out war between the Savior-Heapster alliance and the Alexandrian-Hilltop-Kingdom rebels, but before it arrives, here’s a recap of what went on last year.

Nineteen days. That’s how long the entirety of season seven took in the world of The Walking Dead. From Abraham and Glenn’s death to the battle of Alexandria, it was just under three weeks.

It's bittersweet day for Paul Walker fans. Today would have marked the late actor's 44th birthday.

2017-09-11T06:10:48-07:00'Fear the Walking Dead' Honors 'Breaking Bad'class="p1">

Fear the Walking Dead came back from its mid-season break this week, and the drama wasted no time getting started. It was an eventful episode, and tucked away inside it was an homage to Breaking Bad, the AMC series that helped create the mold for blockbuster cable-tv series.

Via The Hollywood Reporter.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the midseason three premiere of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead.]

The story of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her two children, Nick (Frank Dillane) and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), is about to come to an end.

At least, it's coming to an end for one pivotal Fear the Walking Dead figure: Dave Erickson, the man who co-created the Walking Dead spinoff and has served as showrunner from the outset. Season three marks Erickson's last dance with the Dead, as he hands the reins over to incoming showrunners Andrew Chambliss and
