‘The Highwaymen’ Trailer: Kevin Costner Is A Texas Ranger Hunting For Bonnie & Clyde

The timeless, true-story tale of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow is one Hollywood is all-too-familiar with. Of course, Arthur Penn’s landmark 1967 game-changer, “Bonnie and Clyde,” announced a new era for cinema, one free from the restraints of censoring and pushing the boundaries of violence, profanity and sex on the screen. While the depicted story has never been cinematically matched, the young-lovers-on-a-killing-spree spurred derivatives ranging from Terrence Malick’s “Badlands” to Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers.” Like any salacious true-crime news story, this saga is consistently consumed by the general public, but the perspective has mostly been limited to the criminals themselves, and not the crime fighters who brought them down.

Woody Harrelson in Talks to Star in Ted Melfi’s ‘Fruit Loops’ at Fox 2000

Woody Harrelson is The Best, right? From White Men Can't Jump, Natural Born Killers and The People vs. Larry Flynt to No Country for Old Men, True Detective and War for the Planet of the Apes, he has always been one of my favorite actors thanks to his versatility and his intensity. I mean, if you don't like Woody Harrelson, do you even like movies? He plays a pretty delightful weirdo, too, which is why he's kind of perfect for the lead in Ted Melfi's Fruit Loops, a drama that's said to be in the …

9 Marvel Comics Movies We Almost Got in the 90s

While DC Comics icons like Superman and Batman starred in a series of successful films back in the day, Marvel Comics stable of superheroes and villains were in a much more precarious place for decades. Marvel went bankrupt in the mid-90s. The Marvel Universe was broken apart in a myriad of licensing deals, with movie and TV rights to their biggest characters and supporting casts spread across different studios. We recently unearthed a fascinating report from Hollywood trade publication Variety, published in December 1992, which offered a look at Marvel's slate way before the blockbuster success of the Avengers, or even the X-Men. Here we'll take a look at 9 Marvel Movies We Almost Got in the '90s.

So let's break down where things stood with a bunch of Marvel properties in 1992...

A hard-partying pack of teens come across a mysterious vintage game and can’t resist giving it a try. They each place a thumb on it and suddenly, they all get pricked, their blood running and pooling into the game. A clock lights up, counting down. At the end of the countdown, one of the teens dies – in a rather spectacular way. The countdown begins again. The game instructs the teens to kill or be killed. Whatever the case, someone will die by the time each countdown ends, and it can either be one of them, or… well, anyone else. This is not great news for anyone who lives remotely nearby as the teens have no

Movie Review – Widows (2018)

Widows, 2018.

Directed by Steve McQueen.

Starring Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Cynthia Erivo, Robert Duvall, Jon Bernthal, Brian Tyree Henry, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Molly Kunz, Coburn Goss, Bailey Rhyse Walters, James Vincent Meredith, Eric C. Lynch, Michael Harney, Brian King, Ann Mitchell, Garret Dillahunt, Kevin J. O’Connor, Bailee Brewer, Lukas Haas, and Jacki Weaver.

Synopsis:

Set in contemporary Chicago, amidst a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.

The often depressing works from Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave and Shame) and twisty/satirical tone from the texts of Gone Girl novelist Gillian Flynn is an unlikely pairing, and while I was initially convinced that David Fincher’s adaptation of the aforementioned mystery

Movie Rating Appeals Getting More Rare, According To MPAA Report Marking System’s 50th Anniversary

  • Deadline
Fewer appeals have been filed in recent years over ratings decisions rendered by the MPAA, according to a new report by the trade organization marking the 50th anniversary of the ratings system.

Introduced on November 1, 1968 by Jack Valenti in the wake of films such as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? causing a stir with their provocative content, the ratings system has assigned letters to 29,791 films as of September 30.

Of those nearly 30,000 films, 17,202 were rated R, while just 1,574 have been rated G for general audiences.

A total of 428 films since 1968 have appealed the initial ratings decisions, with fewer than 1% succeeding in getting the rating overturned. Some of the cat-and-mouse exchanges over films such as South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut, American Psycho and Natural Born Killers have attained near-mythic status in the industry and popular culture.

In 1984, the year that the PG-13 rating was introduced, 18 films (6% of the total number

Venom Director Explains That Surprising Mid-Credits Scene in The Film

For those of you who saw Venom over the weekend and have questions about the surprising mid-credits scene, the director of the film, Ruben Fleischer, opens up and talks about it.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you might want to skip article because it contains spoilers.

In the mid-credits scene, Eddie Brock goes to San Quentin State prison to interview the crazy-ass serial killer Cletus Kasidy. This is the killer that eventually becomes Carnage. This character is played by Woody Harrelson and the director explains that Harrelson was the only person he ever envisioned as the villain and confirms the Venom sequel would pit Venom against Carnage.

"He was the first person I thought of to play Cletus Kasady. And what will be fun is, if you think about Woody in Natural Born Killers, and that darkness and that menace that he can bring to a serial killer like Cletus Kasady,

Venom director explains why he didn’t use Carnage as the villain

Sony finally realised its ambition of releasing a Venom movie this weekend, having been in development on a solo film for the fan-favourite anti-hero since his big screen debut back in 2007’s Spider-Man 3.

At several points during this development stage, the plan had been to include the character of Carnage as the villain (even going so far as to greenlight a project entitled Venom Carnage back in 2014) but director Ruben Fleischer chose to go down a different route for his film by utilising another symbiote, Riot.

During an interview with Cbr to coincide with the release of Venom, Flesicher has admitted Sony knows fans are keen to see Carnage – hence the reason he was kept out of this first movie:

“I think, you know, there’s a certain symbiote spawn that I think fans are most excited to see. So that one was off the table. Hopefully at some

Why Ruben Fleischer Included That Venom Post-Credits Scene

Though it remains to be seen whether the new Venom movie will manage to land a sequel, it’s long been clear that director Ruben Fleischer and Sony Pictures harbor intentions for Eddie Brock’s first standalone film to be the first part of a larger saga. And since this is a comic book movie we’re talking about, a post-credits teaser was inevitable.

Sure enough, the clip in questions has now made its way online, and as per previous reports, the footage sees Tom Hardy’s title character meeting with one Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson. It had long been speculated that Fleischer’s old Zombieland collaborator would taking on the role of the murderous Carnage, but this newly leaked scene confirms it once and for all when the incarcerated Cletus mentions his future alter ego by name, albeit in the sense that “there’s gonna be carnage.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Score Jonah Hill's Mid90s Soundtrack

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Score Jonah Hill's Mid90s Soundtrack
Back in March of 2016 it was reported that Jonah Hill was going to direct his first film titled Mid90s.

Review: ‘Who’s Watching Oliver’ Unpacks a Chaotic Mind With an Unfocused Message

To think about a romantic serial killer thriller is to conjure thoughts of Natural Born Killers and its duo of equally despicable characters. It’s easy to believe two psychopaths can fall in love because they share a predilection for violence no one else would. But just because they accept each other’s monstrous desires, any potential offspring wouldn’t automatically follow suit. This son or daughter would possess the agency to fear his/her parents and pray for escape. The parents would obviously work their twisted psychological claws into his/her skin, destroying his/her sanity if they cannot erase the pesky soul preventing full acquiescence. What’s left is a broken figure desperate for connection and warped into thinking Mommy and Daddy are its sole purveyors. He/she becomes a slave to their whims.

This is the position director Richie Moore and his co-writers Russell Geoffrey Banks and

Here’s What Carnage Could Look Like In The Venom Movie

When news first broke that Sony had a Venom movie in development, there were no doubt some comic book readers whose minds immediately jumped to the question of whether this means that Carnage will also be making it to the big screen.

Sure enough, it feels like the more we learn about Eddie Brock’s first solo outing, the more substance there seems to be to the speculation. And, naturally, fans have been offering their own artistic renderings of what popular supervillain Cletus Cassidy, aka Carnage, could look like in the live-action flesh, including this latest edit which uses Tom Hardy’s Venom as the template for its grisly design.

Paul Schrader: Masterclass and Shows His Latest ‘First Reformed’

Paul Schrader: Masterclass and Shows His Latest ‘First Reformed’
Taken from the Rotterdam (Iffr) Blog.Paul Schrader has always been exceptional, Though he is of the period of the first independent filmmakers, Coppola, De Palma, Lucas, Spielberg, he fits into no category. His screenplays and the films he directed are proof of this.Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried and Pau Schrader at a First Reformed event.

His strict Calvinist parents refused to allow him to see a film until he was 18. And what is perfect for his attending Rotterdam, is that his ancestors come from the Dutch.

He came Iffr with First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, and Cedric the Entertainer, a (kind of) spiritual follow-up to his screenplay for Taxi Driver, and in a masterclass he conjured up a cinematic resurrection of a troubled Nic Cage pic. As always with Schrader, the devil is in the detail.

‘Roseanne’ Is More Critical of America Than Its Record-Breaking Audiences May Realize

The tenth season of “Roseanne” doesn’t exhume the ’90s sitcom so much as it functions as a meta-commentary on its original appeal. No matter how much the far right — and Trump himself — would like to embrace the show for foregrounding a prototypical working-class Trump voter as its hero, this commercial phenomenon critiques America in spite of itself. There’s something surreal, even a touch eerie about watching a family divided along political lines, jostling each other about unfunny topics like health care, gun rights, and sexism, while a live studio audience laughs on cue.

Written by liberals even as its creator endorses the president, “Roseanne” showcases irreconcilable belief systems under the guise of a laugh track. It’s an enthralling cultural paradox, no matter the original intentions, and far more critical of America than its voluminous working-class audiences may realize.
